Recently MAC has come out with their pre made palettes. I was never really into them until I saw the Mini palettes such as the one above. This palette is 9 eyeshadows that fit into their regular four pan palette. This palette is so handy for travelling or putting in your make up bag for touch ups.

There are 4 different palettes to choose from I went for the Burgundy one. The shades in this palette are Honey Lust, Poppyseed, Quarry, Antiqued, Embark, #noir, Haux, Star Violet and Sketch. The price of this eye shadow palette is €40 and I bought mine of Brown Thomas . They were amazing it came within two days I would highly recommend them if you live in the Republic of Ireland.

Onto the Eyeshadow look;

BASE

L’Oreal Infalliable foundation in 120, Urban Decay Naked Concealer in Warm Neutral, MAC Harmony to Contour, NYC Sunny Bronzer, MAC Soft and Gentle to Highlight

EYES

MAC Soft Ochre paint pot to prime, MAC Cork in the crease, MAC Embark to deepen the crease and outer corner. Sketch in the outer corner. MAC Honey Lust all over the lid.

On a whim I bought this Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in The Missing Pink. Boots 3 for 2 is completely to blame!

I wasn’t expecting much from this lipstick just something I can throw on. Well I was completely wrong this has replaced my very loved MAC Patisserie lipstick. The shade of this lipstick is a pink nude, A your lips but better shade.

What I love about this formula is that it doesn’t dry out my lips and it wears off nicely. This lipstick applies really smoothly and you don’t need a mirror to apply this shade.

I can’t wait to pick up some more shades from this range.

Me and red lips is not something you will see very often. As much as I love them, I just feel really self conscious when I wear one and I just don’t think I can pull it off. But this year I have decided to be adventurous and not worry what people think.

When I wear a red lip I like to keep things simple for the rest of my makeup.

Brows is something I am still perfecting and after trying brow pencil and shadows I have decided which one I prefer.

Brow Pencils ; I love brow pencils for their quickness and precision but I find them quite hard to use and sometimes they look very dramatic. The pencils I use for my brows are MAC Lingering brow pencil and Soap and Glory Brow Archery pencil in soft brunette.

Brow Shadows ; Shadows are something that take a little bit longer to apply but I prefer the result. I find they look the most natural and I get the best shape with a brow shadow. The brow shadow I use is MAC Mystery eyeshadow with a MAC 266 brush.

What do you prefer to use on your brows?

 

 

 

A bit of Soap and Glory Madness

For christmas I seem to obtain alot of soap and glory stuff. Usually I just get the original line but this year my sister got me the sugar crush range which I love and really wanted to try.

Sugar Crush lives up to all the hype. It smells like lime and  chocolate. In other words it smells delicious.  I have used this range non stop since christmas!

As for the original line need I say anything. It is classically amazing.

do you love soap and glory? What is your favourite line?

 

The Review | Soap and Glory Face Brush

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You have probably heard the raving’s of many bloggers about well giant toothbrushes for you face such as the Clarisonic Mia. As much as I would love one I just can’t part with that much money.

So I have opted for the cheaper do it yourself version. This is by Soap and Glory I found is in the exfoliating glove section of boots. Yep exactly where you thought it would be!
Moving on, this brush has too side Hard bristles (white) and soft plastic bristles(pink). I find the white bristles too harsh for my face even when I do it gentl. I have very red skin as it is so were not enhancing that. So I don’t use that side! But I adore the pink bristles. They are so soft and squidy! and I just love using that side! I feel like it does take off alot more of my make up than if I used my hands. I do like this brush as an alternative to my usual muslin cloth. Perhaps because I hope it is getting the circulation going in my face and making me look younger. A girl can dream!

Have you tried face brushing?
