Not really a FOTD

but more a face of last night and more because I love how my eyes turned out.  I found my dior make up brushes yesterday & so was able to properly have a stab at decent eye makeup. Stealing a few techniques I learned whilst watching the gorgeous Bex Bryson work her magic at a fashion shoot on sunday. 
So here it goes.

Face:
Benefit Play Sticks Foundation in Spin The Bottle
Benefit Lying Eyes Concealer in Shade 2
Urban Decay Bronzing Powder (obviously not very much lol)
Benefit Thrrrob Blush

Eyes:
17 pale pink all over lid
Barry M Dazzle Dust in Yellow Gold below crease on upper lid and framing lower lid
Barry M Dazzle Dust (possibly Lime I'm not sure as the label has worn) above crease on upper lid.
Avon Super Shock Gel Eye Liner in Black (donated by Bex from Once Bitten Twice Shy)
Urban Decay Skyscraper Eyeliner in Black

Lips:
Barbara Daly Lipstick in Icon

I used Urban Decay All Nighter to set my makeup as well as an accidental spritz of hairspray lol. oh well!
I think I've done this right. As you can see I'm still very basic with my makeup but it can only get better... I hope! 
Bex

ps. speaking of that photoshoot how gorgeous is this makeup?!

Date Yo’ Self!

We’re only days in to February and already the Valentine’s Day hype is upon us. Every post on social media and promotional email pinging in to your inbox is full of romantic getaways, gift ideas for your other half, and over priced set menus; if you’re a commitmentphobe like myself then it can seem like you’re not part of the cool gang. Well do you know what I say to that? FUCK IT. Date yourself! Do your nails.  Get gussied up.  Shit at applying lashes? Spend an hour practicing! It’s not like there’s someone impatiently waiting and giving you side eye.  Eat your weight in holiday chocolate - am I the only one who thinks it tastes better because there’s less preservatives?  Missing your Netflix and chill? How about Netflix and Chinese takeout except probably not because it’s only Wednesday. Let’s not go too crazy! Still… You’re half way through season 4 of Weeds and Nancy’s cataclysmic relationship choices are making you feel much better about single life right now. Ok, so the chocolate is go…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Beating the blues with #GroundDoesMondays

Monday’s used to be filled with sambucca shots and double vodbulls, now I’m partial to a chai tea latte or a caramel laiden hit caffeine. I’ve really been trying to embrace cafe culture recently. My friends will tell you that I’m always looking for an excuse to meet up for the chats over a cuppa. I am under no illusion that this is a substitute for my drinking days!
One of my favourite places to go for coffee is Ground Espresso and I’m slowly making my way through their ever expanding range of stores; the most recent of which is the new laganbank store in Lisburn where I popped in to chase away the Monday blues with my Mum.  Ground is the only place you’ll find me comfortable enough to drink a simple filter coffee. TheirLa montaña Columbian filter from Berlin, with its jammy blackcurrent notes through a chemex filter - removing all harshness from the coffee - actually suffers when you add milk and it’s only through my lessons with Ground that I can even begin to understand this. I drank…
