Where to find me

Whishlist | Christmas

I have the reputation in my family for being impossible to buy for. I would like to think its just because I am very discerning and with great taste but in reality I'm just very picky! 
I also have an irrational hatred for any bath or body products, which tend to be most peoples go-to gifts for girls. Coupled with being really fussy I know I am a difficult customer.

So here are some things I would love to receive this christmas!

New Additions | Makeup Revolution Palettes

Ultra Contour in Light

I only went into Superdrug for a replacement collection concealer and ended up with these two beauties. With no prior planning, and without reading any reviews, I grabbed them.

I partially blame the 3 for 2 deal they have going on but the purchase can really be attributed to my weakness for makeup palettes and the fact these are only £6 each. Yes thats right, £6!

I don't know what it is but I am always drawn to palettes and having heard good things about the Makeup Revolution brand from Jane over at British Beauty Blogger I felt confident picking them up.
I haven't used them yet but from swatching the testers in store I cant wait to try them out.

Wishlist | Current Loves

Boots, Black coat and silver jewellery is pretty much me summed up one post. 
Ive been lusting after all these items for a while now. 
I tried the coat on in Cos in London with me mum a few weeks ago and left is behind thinking I would be able to find something similar elsewhere but for less money, apparently not! I cant find anything else that matches up to it. 
The jewellery is much more attainable as the price is much less but the boots and coat are what I just can't get out of my head.

Its my birthday in two weeks so hopefully if I save a bit I will  be able to splurge on at least one pair then.

A Closer Look | All About Brows

If you have been with me for a while then you may know I am rather obsessed with e.l.f makeup. I love that it is inexpensive but still great quality. My holy grail brow product has always been the 'Eyebrow Kit' in the colour Ash. 
When the UK branch of the elf website closed and stopped distribution (it is now back up and running) it lead me to search for more readily available products.

Cool toned brow products can be a little more tricky to find if you aren't willing to fork out nearly £20 for a brow powder (I'm looking at you Anastasia Beverly Hills). But more and more brands are bringing out wider colour ranges and it has lead to me having a few that I want to share.

Aside from the Mac shadow, which I did purchase in duty free, all of the other products are less than £6 and pretty easy to get your hands on.

In terms of application I start with a either the wax from the e.l.f kit or the Maybelline colour tattoo applied with the real techniques brush, followed by a powder using the slightly thicker angled brush from seventeen. Then the brow gel/mascara to fix it all in place.

I prefer to use separate brushes for each stage as it means you get a sharper more precise line and quite honestly you can wash the brushes slightly less often if one brush isn't getting clogged up with both wax and a powder. Lazy or what?!

I get a little bit obsessed with brow products as I think well groomed eyebrows make such a big difference to your face. So if you have any other recommendations I would love to hear them.
