Day 9 of Christmas – An Affordable Make-up Starter Kit

Day 9 of Christmas - An Affordable Make-up Starter Kit
This post features product suggestions for anyone just starting out with makeup. I’ve included just the bare essentials to have a complete set and even better all products are under $8 dollars each, with most products coming from Forever21 and the kabuki brush coming from H&M.
The Forever21 brush set is labelled with what the brushes are for, which will make the whole learning process much easier. Not having to remember which brush is for what will really take the load off.
There’s a lip gloss included to give a twinge off colour to the lips and to help with keeping your lips moisturised. A mascara is there to help your eyes really pop. But wait . . . you want more, you ask? Well, have no fair. There’s also some false lashes at varying lengths that you can try out with the use of the included glue.
The ’21 Shades Palette’ comes with tons of neutral eyeshadow to try. There’s a packet of make-up wipes to take it all off at the end of the day, there’s a cute little ‘Are You Kitten Me Right Meow’ compact mirror to watch all this happen and in the end there’s a chic make-up pouch to store it all in.
So that is all. Everything is from Forever21 except the kabuki brush which is from H&M. I got a the links to the different products for you guys. Hope you like.
Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post.

Day 5 of Christmas – Black Lead Paint Instead of Mascara?!?

Image

 

In this post I just want to take the time out to inform you all of some tragic truth. I recently heard a story and then researched it and found it to be true. There have been some people that have been selling paint on eBay and have been passing it off as mascara.

That is absurdly dangerous and I was even told that someone had gone blind. I just want you all to be safe and cautious when buying makeup or any other product from eBay or any similar sites. How the people that do this can even sleep at night, I don’t know.

Below are some pictures that I have gotten from a blog ‘Sophie Rose Hearts‘ and you can use that link to read about her experience with the fake ‘mascara’.

Goodbye everyone and please . . . be safe and aware when shopping online.

#TheWinterProject – Day 4 of Christmas – My Winter Makeup Essentials

#TheWinterProject - Day 4 of Christmas - My Winter Makeup Essentials
Today I’ve done a combination of two posts: #TheWinterProject and 12 Days of Christmas. I hope that’s not a problem for you guys because I’ve been kind of busy lately.
This post is about my winter makeup essentials for my ideal makeup look.
First off, I chose the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, because for winter I don’t really like using a lot of product and this BB cream is quite light on my face. Then, there’s the Smashbox Hydrating Primer and I use this so that the makeup that I do use stays all day and also because it’s hydrating which is an ideal feature for this season – but of course you apply your primer before your BB cream.
Next I use the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer to get rid of any bags that I’d have under my eyes. I’d apply a bit of eyeliner on my upper lash line and in my lower waterline and then finish off my eyes with a mascara like this CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara.
If I’d feel like wearing anything on my lips other than a balm then I’d go for a deep red lipstick that hydrates.
For me, my ideal winter makeup essentials would just be products that are light, easy to apply and keep my skin hydrated.
I hope you guys like this post. What would your winter makeup essentials consist of? I’d really like to know.
I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.
