In the past, brows have never been my strong point. Mine are quite full at the front but disappear into nothing on the tail, and I never had the patience to draw them in properly. Going back a few years ago I actually used to go into work with no eyebrows filled in whatsoever. Considering I like to wear a lot of eye makeup you can imagine how weird I looked. Thankfully, I've now realised the importance of brows. We all know they frame the face beautifully but I also think makeup looks overall more polished when your brows are filled in slightly. I'm not one for overly heavy brows, but I do like them to look as neat and tidy as I can get them. Lately I have been using these beautiful brow products from Yves Saint Laurent, here's what I thought of them!

What's In My Holiday Makeup Bag

Smashbox Primer Water, Hourglass Bronzer, MAC Creme Cup, Chanel Lip Gloss, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow, NYX Lid Lingerie

We go to Italy in less than a week and I am SO disorganised. I haven't bought anything I need to and I don't even know what I'm packing yet! But of course I've thought about what makeup I'm taking... priorities. I ALWAYS over-pack on the makeup but I'm going to try sooo hard this time to pack light. I wish I could be one of those people who chucks on a bit of tinted moisturiser and bronzer and they look like a sun-kissed goddess but unfortunately being a Caspar the Friendly Ghost look-a-like, this just isn't going to happen. Anyway, I thought I'd share a round-up of what my holiday make-up bag looks like!

An Afternoon with Smashbox Cosmetics

Smashbox Primer Water, Cover Shot Golden Hour Palette, Spotlight Highlighter Palette, Be Legendary Liquid Lip

Hello beauties! Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your week so far. Last Friday I had the absolute pleasure of being invited into the beautiful new Smashbox studio in Bluewater Shopping Centre! The lovely Clare at Smashbox asked if I would like to come along to their launch party to celebrate the opening of the new stand-alone store, to try out some of the products and find out what the brand is all about. Of course my answer was 'Err.. YES!' and along I went, excited to spend the day meeting the team and being beautified at the same time.

Life Lately

Life Lately - Instagram Shadowban

Hello Beauties! Today's post is a bit of a different one for me, but I realised I very rarely write about whats going on in my world, and thought I'd share a bit of what's been happening lately. You might want to grab a tea- it's a bit of a wordy one. As you probably noticed, I didn't post a lot in April and to be honest with you it's because I felt quite demotivated. Unless you have been living under a rock you will know that Instagram has gone through so many changes lately, and with all this unfollow/follow, algorithm and shadow ban business going down it left me feeling a bit demoralised!
