If you have been reading this blog long enough, you will know that I am a creature of habit, and once I like something I use it to death! Me and eyeshadow palettes have not had the greatest relationship. I just didn’t know where to start when it came to eyeshadow palettes, well it was probably because I didnt know how to use and apply eyeshadows. Once I started to get the hang of applying eyeshadows I became more interested in eyeshadow palettes (see here for how I apply my eyeshadow). This year alone I…

Do the brush cleaners actually work?

Hey my lovelies, how are you doing? I know, I know, it has been a while. All will be explained on Friday Washing your brushes can be so long, trust me I know! Sometimes I am tempted not to even bother, heck why am I lying?

Washing your brushes is almost a necessary evil. You know you need to do it because of…

I decided two days ago to just post it. To be honest, I was happier about the fact that I had lasted a year in blogging more than anything, because…

What items should go in your ‘On the go’ makeup kit?

I will be honest here, I do not wear makeup everyday. There are some days when I have slept on time the night before and I am feeling well rested that I feel alert enough to throw on foundation and eyeliner but most days I don’t wear anything.

However, something I find really useful is essentially having two makeup kits, and even though I don’t…
