My first make up tutorial!!

3.jpg

Hello and welcome my beautiful people. I have been asked loads of times if I would post a make up tutorial of my everyday make up.  Mums at the nursery or people that I meet are always commenting on how nice my make up is and what products I use.  Also some people seen completely stumped as to how I get it done with two young kids and the truth is with great difficulty.  As you will see in the vid which features my daughter, my dog and my partner, in fact the tutorial had to be done in two parts as muy partner came in and decided to ruin it, so instead of being clever and pressing record I pressed stop!!!

My family are so completely incompetent without me that you hear them asking me various questions throughout the video.

My dog also eats my make up brush!!!

I also would like to show that you do not have to have break the bank products in order to look and feel pretty and confident.  All of the brushes and products I use are all £10 and under.  Most of the items are bought from ebay, if you like the look of the brushes click here if you like the look of the brushes, this link will take you to a past post and review that I did about these brushes.  My ebay bargains!!!

I would also just like to state that I am in no way a professional camera woman, I am no way an expert in make up, and I am nit a make up artist, this is just how I do it, and what works best for my ever aging skin.

I enjoyed making it so I hope that comes across and you enjoy watching.

PS. Sorry about the rough Scottish accent, but that’s just who I am.

Much love

Product Description

Its a nice size and has a little mirror which I find extremely handy when I feel like my eyebrows are needing a little touch up.  And like I said its the perfect size for any handbag.  It also comes with two small brushes and a small pair of tweezers.  The tweezers are okay and are good for just grabbing the odd out of place eyebrow but for a full pluck I wouldn’t recommend them, they are very small so are difficult to work with, there is hardly any slant on them so it is also difficult to grab any small hairs that may need taken care of.  The brushes are also extremely small and difficult to work with and to be honest are not much use at all.  I personally use my own brush the application of this product. You can see the size comparison in the image below just so you can get an understanding of just how fiddly it is to try and work with such small brushes.

20160722_164439Inside there are three shades of brown eyebrow powder, light brown,  medium brown and dark brown, there is also eye brow wax as well.  I really like the colour selection in this little palette, even though I am blonde I can easily wear any of the shades, although I wouldn’t wear the dark brown as an everyday look and therefore obviously wear the lightest colour for a more natural look, but for a full face of make up  the dark brown gives the definition I like.  The wax is also a nice little extra that you do not get in every eyebrow kit.

Application steps:

Step one – Groom your brows, firstly you wouldn’t straighten your hair and style it for a big night out without firstly washing it so why is there any difference when it comes to eyebrows, give your eyebrow a brush with an eyebrow brush, the best thing to do is to brush them upwards,

Step 2 – Pluck any stragglers, once you have brushed all of your brows upwards have a look underneath and pluck any hairs that are hanging down and any smaller ones that grow just along the brow bone, the best place for brows to be is just on or very slightly above the eyebrow bone so if there is a lot of hairs on or below there pluck them away. Do not go pluck crazy on the top of the eyebrows as this takes away their natural shape.

Step 3 – apply a little wax, after you have groomed and tidied your brows apply a little wax, do not smother your brows in wax as your brows will look shiny, greasy and fake, a little goes a long way here, why?? Well wax makes your powder stay on longer and is useful for tidying up your brows before applying the powder.

Step 4 – choose your colour and start applying nearest the nose and work outward towards the temples, I find that starting at the top of the eyebrows and use short strokes. Everyone has their own style of how they like their eyebrows and personally I like my eyebrows to get a little thinner as I make my way outwards, the nearer the temples the thinner I like them.20160722_164657

My Findings

I really like this product, the only thing that lets it down are the little extras such as the brushes and tweezers.  Although they are thoughtful little extras and look super cute they do not do the product any favours, they do not work what-so-ever.

As long as you have your own, full sized, eyebrow brush in order to apply the product then you are on to a winner.

Top five best beauty procucts of 2016 so far!!!!

Good evening, and I hope that you are all well. I don’t know about you guys but sometimes when choosing something I really want can be made very difficult when faced with the huge variety of products that are available nowadays. for example the other day I want in to my local superdrug for a new foundation.  I had in mind which foundation I wanted, now I had enough money to treat myself so I decided that I was wanting to grab myself Maybeylline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation in Ivory.  I had seen this foundation on a video on youtube and it looked really really good.  It gave a light coverage which is what I was needing as I have a few heavy full coverage foundations but nothing for those more is less kind of days, and now the minimal, natural look is so trendy I thought it was time I gave my make-up bag an update.  But on entering the store I saw the huge amount of foundations that were available, I kind of got side tracked from what I actually needed and started thinking that maybe I should get some other kind of foundation, or maybe this one, or maybe this one is better, oh but this one is on offer (even though its not anything like the product I actually need).  So to help prevent this happening to any of you guys, or to at least give you a little guidance when it comes to selecting those must have beauty items I have created my top five beauty products of 2016 (so far).  I have some links to these items so to save you walking around the aisles in a neon daze looking for latest items, just hit a link and you will be taken directly to the offer, and may I add the best offer available at he moment.

A Late Night Being up With My Sick Son Lead To An Ebay Haul Full Of Bargains!!!

Hello there my wonderful people, I have not posted on my blog for such a long time.  And within that time I have had a new addiction……buying stuff off eBay for pennies.  I have also bought several Bourjois items that I am totally loving at the moment but more about them after I let you all in on my new fixation.
