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 […]

Empties #6 The Big Cull

More Makeup Empties

As you can probably see, I’ve had a bit of a clear out.  I’d a lot of makeup I was just hoarding without actually using it, alongside lots of  nail polishes that had gone a bit funny.   So as that’s the case, let’s just get stuck in.  I’ve quite a few Barry M nail […]

Everyday Makeup Look

I’ve been reaching for similar products recently, for those days when I’m in a rush and just want to get my face on, but still look “put together”.  I have it down to a fine art, taking only about 20mins while drinking my tea.

Makeup Inventory Purge & Update!

Bit of an up date on my makeup inventory!  I did an end of year purge and I’ve gotten rid of products that I either barely used, I just wasn’t happy with or that had gone a tad “funny”. I’m sure I’m not the only one that felt the need to have a bit of […]
