Cut crease with a touch of glitter βœ¨βœ¨

Hello lovely people ☺️ 

So it’s that time of the year again where I’ve gotta juggle between assignments, exams as well as practicing my makeup skills.  πŸ’…πŸ»

But in the midst of it all… I’m happiest when I’m doing some makeup.  πŸ˜‹

I do it because it takes my mind off the usual routine of life. It’s a hobby and passion which I thoroughly enjoy!

Here’s some eye makeup that I did a few days ago:

Products used-

β€’ NYX love in Paris eyeshadow palette for the black part of it. 

β€’ Essence ‘bronze’ eyeshadow mini palette for the inner corner. 

β€’ I mixed two colours to get the middle part from a palette I bought overseas ❀️

β€’ I used the MAC black liner to finish off the look as well as the NYX silver glitter liner which I’m loving.  πŸ˜ 

So what do you fabulous people think?? 

Would you ever try this look? 
Love ❀️

Glitter Gold Eye β˜ΊοΈ

Hi all! 😘
Sooo… I’ve been playing around with makeup looks often and I came across something very different. It was a light cut crease with a full on gold glitter! 

I used the Revlon Photoready Eye art in the color Topaz Twinkle. 

I also used the brown eyeshadow which I found in my NYX love in Paris eyeshadow palette for the cut crease. 
This is a very simple yet elegant look, which can definitely be done for any night out or function. 
Simply end off the look with a red lip!

F40 Cake It Baby Oval Brush. πŸ–Œ

Finally got my hands on this baby 😍

It’s an extremely soft brush, the brush fibers are like cushioning on the skin! It comes in a very compact size which fits perfectly in your hand, as well as the shape that easily reaches the difficult areas of the eye. This brush is also another tool for a perfect contour as well as an airbrush look! 

The dimensions of the brush itself are 15cm in length. The head of the brush is approx 2cm in width and 3.5cm in length, although it might look quite big in pictures. πŸ“
When I got the brush yesterday I decided to give the below a go, just so that you know what to expect from this brush:
1. I applied foundation, which was extremely easy, as well as giving it a very natural, airbrushed look. 

2. I also tried concealing under the eyes, which then again blended in amazingly. 

3. Lastly I tried contouring with it, I had used both a powder formula as well as a creamy formula and to my surprise this little brush magically blended in my contour to perfection. 

I am in awe at the size of this brush, as well as the work one can get done with it. It’s truly an all in one! 😍 
Remember this is also a dupe of the Cailyn O Wow Makeup brush for half the price. 
Would definitely recommend this brush to everyone! I am obsessed with my purchase. 😍
I purchased this from Swiitchbeauty

Express brush cleaning glove πŸ‘‹

Hi All.. 

Today I’m doing a review on this lovely product that I came across when shopping at swiitchbeauty.com

This has made my life so much easier when it comes to cleaning brushes! It’s simple and so convenient as it can be taken anywhere, so this works great if you are a makeup artist or just someone who travels with almost their whole makeup kit. 
The fit is perfect and very comfortable, and speeds up the brush cleaning process. It’s a very soft glove, which has different bristles for different brush sizes on either side, and I was able to wash a maximum of 3 brushes at a time and they were cleaned within minutes.

For the price of R150.00 (South African Rands), which is approximately $9,32 – it’s a bargain! 
This product is the exact dupe of the Sigma Spa brush cleaning glove that goes for $39 which is R627,60 which makes the one from Swiitch a quarter of the price. πŸ™Š 

I would highly recommend this. 😍 shop now at swiitchbeauty.com

MAC Foiled Shadow. πŸ‘‘

Hello all! 
Hope the holidays were amazing!! 
Since early Jan, I was back at work and studies have started again. 
Today I’m doing a review on the new MAC Faerie Whispers foiled shadow that I recently purchased. 

  

  
These shadows come in 8 colors, all of which are based on fairy colours, which are pinks, purples, bronzes etc. 
I bought the colour ‘Joy Toy’ which was the only one that actually grabbed my attention. It’s a shimmery pink colour which could pass as champagne in different lighting. 
It goes for R280 per shadow and comes in a 3g container, which is extremely strong. 
The reason why I bought this shadow was because it was foiled and it’s very difficult to find them over here in South Africa, and buying them online works out too expensive due to the rand-dollar exchange. 
Below I have two pics on which I’ve done two different types of eye makeup to show you how it looks when applied with MAC fix it spray, and without. 
This product was worth every cent as there wasn’t fall out and a little goes a very long way! I just gently dabbed a bit on my brush and applied it to the eye 😍 and this was the results!!

 

This is the eyeshadow without fix it spray
 
 
This is the eyeshadow with fix it spray

As you can see without the Mac fix it spray, it’s pinkish, and with it it has a goldish tone to it! 
Hope this review helped you decide whether or not you would purchase it. 
Love,
