Eyebrows. They totally frame the face. I happen to be very particular about my eyebrows, and if they aren’t in a good state, I get in a strop! I get mine professionally threaded at a local Brow Bar, and these can be found everywhere, from malls to beauty salons! I’d definitely recommend this method of grooming, because it leaves the brows looking clean and perfect. If you like doing your eyebrows yourself, I’d advice you to first allow a professional to thread them, so you can have a guide of how your eyebrows should look, then if you want, you can just pluck the… Read More »

BEAUTY BASICS | Simple Daytime Smokey Eye

December 19 2011

A look I often sport. It’s simple, and I’m sure everyone can have a go! All that is required is the right blending technique, a little smudged smoky layer, and you’re good. If you want, you can amp it up by increasing the black on the outer corner or even add more liner to the lower lash line to make it even more smokier…it’s up to you! This is just how I achieve mine! Products Used ~ Eyes ~ Primer : UDPP Base : Jumbo Pencil, Black Bean (NYX) Lid : Tempting (MAC) Crease : Cork, Texture (MAC) Outer Corner : Carbon… Read More »

My Everyday Face

October 25 2011

I’ve had requests (many times) to do an updated version of My Everyday Face. So here it is! It should also help those who were wondering about what makeup I used in my last few outfit posts!  I also get asked a lot about my eyebrows and how I keep them groomed, well the answer really is simple: I visit a professional “Threadist” once every two weeks to get them threaded and shaped! You can look up Brow Bars, or Beauty Shops that offer this service in your area! Prices of threading do vary, depending on area and service! Hope… Read More »

Beauty Bits & Bobs

September 20 2011

It’s been a while since I had a beauty binge. I convinced myself earlier this summer that I had way too much makeup and beauty products, and it would be criminal to spend any more money on bits I really didn’t need.  It wasn’t until I decided to do a clearout and got rid of so much stuff, that I realised my beauty and makeup drawers felt naked. Lol! So I compiled a wishlist of things I needed and wanted (we all know there’s a difference between the two) and I’ve made allowance every now and again to buy things off… Read More »
