Makeup Geek shadows

My customised Makeup Geek eyeshadow palette + swatches

The amount of YouTube videos I watched about Makeup Geek eyeshadows was more than enough for me to know that I wanted to create my very own selection. The only problem was, they were only available in US, up until recently, when Beauty Bay finally got us, UK makeup fanatics, equipped with full selection of MG gorgeousness.

I had an empty large Z palette, just waiting for some goodies to be thrown in there, so over a period of time, I would order a few shadows here and there and eventually filled up the palette with the most beautiful selection of eye shadows (well, to me anyway).

Hourglass Strobe lighting powders

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting powders – review and swatches

Hourglass has always been a brand I can trust when it comes to their powders and I’ve been a fan for a very long time. It’s one of those products that are easy to use, virtually impossible to overdo and add this ‘something’ to the skin and look that you can’t quite put your finger on, but you do see the difference.

I have quite a few of their powders that I use on a daily basis, alternating between them, using singles as well as palettes. I love how effortless the application is. So when these new strobing powders were released I literally couldn’t wait to get them. There isn’t too many new releases that get me so excited. I quickly booked myself for a consultation with an Hourglass sales assistant hoping to get two out of four shades.

Too Faced Chocolate Bob Bon

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon palette – review & swatches

There are some items of makeup that you know you have to have in your life as soon as you see them. There is just simply no other way! Especially if it’s a limited edition and I know I will be kicking myself for not getting it afterwards and only being able to feast my eyes, and drool a bit too, over all those pretty pictures on Instagram. The truth is, if you’re normal, then you probably don’t have this problem. I’ve never claimed to be normal, so here’s my excuse…

On a more serious note, I already have the Chocolate Bar original and Semi Sweet palettes and I love them both, so getting this one was pretty much a done deal. The shades selection is very different from the other two palettes and don’t even get me started on the Oh So cute packaging and most importantly… the chocolatey scent!!!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Stencils

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Brow Stencils

I am rubbish when it comes to shaping my brows and sometimes cannot make them look exact same if my life depended on it. If you’re lucky enough to have your brows in perfect shape, then this post is probably not for you. I am certainly not that person. I guess I lack imagination at drawing this perfect line and achieving ideal shape. I know how everyone seems to be against the ‘Instagram brows’, looking fake and overdrawn, but I actually think they (well, some of them anyway) look really neat and pretty.

Yes I know you can have them professionally threaded and I had in the past too, but each time I was not completely happy with the result…Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. Or maybe the professional looks at my brows thinking ‘woooah what the hell do you expect me to do with this? …’ Have I sparked your interest? No, it’s really not That bad!! I came across something that is simple, straightforward and really helps me a lot.

timeless classic pieces in makeup and fashion

Timeless classics – makeup and fashion

I guess the word ‘classic’ can mean different things to different people. What’s considered classic and timeless by me, may not necessarily be that to you. But there are items both in our makeup collection as well as our wardrobes that most of us would consider timeless classic because they never age and don’t depend on changing fashion trends. They have been and will always be trendy and classy.

Mainly because of that, if there is any item worth splurging on, it’s one of the classic pieces that you know will last in your wardrobe for years to come, will always look chic, effortless and fashionable and goes perfectly with majority of items you normally wear. I am by no means a fashion expert, but I love simple, easy, classic looks, so here are some of my timeless classics of fashion and makeup.

Delilah Aurora Illiminating powder

Delilah Pure Light Illuminating Powder review and swatches

There is no secret about my love for Delilah products. I did a bunch of reviews in the past covering their lipstick, bronzer, blush, primer etc, all of which I’m loving, so this little gem got me really excited. I love me some good highlight and this was one of the products that immediately landed in my shopping bag, no second thoughts.

And I’m glad I wasn’t uuumming and oohing about it for too long, like I sometimes do, as it turns out it’s already sold out!!!!  But the good news is, it is coming back in February next year, so there will be a chance to grab one if this is something you want to add to your collection. So with this in mind, I though I’d still go ahead with the review.
