All about the brows

Eyebrow Pencil Comparison

Before we start, I will point out now, you will not find Instagram perfect brows here. They’re not really my style.  I also have a love hate relationship with my brows, sometimes they’re perfect, other times, not a mission.  I generally use pencils more than anything else when it comes to my brows, they’re just […]

Brush Cleanser Options

Everyone and their neighbour has cleaned their makeup brushes at some point, if you haven’t, please do.  For the sake of your skin if nothing else.  I tend to spot clean my foundation brushes a few times a week and my beauty sponge every time I use it.  They get the nastiest.  All my other […]

L’Oreal Fixing Mist or Urban Decay Setting Spray?

L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist

I have been a long time fan of the Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray.  It costs £22* for 118ml and £9* for the 30ml travel size that I  now own.  It does such a wonderful job at holding everything in place and taking away the powdery look of any finished makeup look.  I think […]
