Individual Eyelash Extensions

About 2 months ago I decided to get eyelashes extensions. I’ve never had them before, but I wanted to give them a try as I was tired of having to apply strip lashes all of the time. I loved them but they just weren’t for me.

So, the day I had them done I was like wowwww omg I really suit them but my eyes were so irritated and red, I literally had pink eye and it was so sore, I know its normal to get this but It was so painful. They cost me £35 so not too expensive and it took the girl about 2 hours to do.

One thing I did struggle with whilst having my lashes on was eye makeup, I rarely wore eye makeup as I couldn’t do it, I know that if I’d have kept trying I’d have got there in the end but I don’t always have a lot of time to spend on my makeup.

About 2 weeks later they started to shed which is normal as they were getting ready to be infilled but I decided that I wasn’t going to get infills due to the fact that I struggled to do my makeup so I had to go through the pain of them getting sparse and I looked like an absolute muppet by this point but who cares you are who you are!

About 2 weeks after they started to shed, I decided to use baby oil and take them out myself, it was painless and I haven’t ruined any of my real lashes.All in all, I really did love having the extensions but I wouldn’t have them again due to the fact of me struggling with makeup, but if you can do makeup pretty good with these on I am so jealous of you! I would recommend individual lashes to those who cannot wear a lot of makeup at work such as nurses or people who work with food or even if you don’t wear makeup at all, lashes will be perfect for you!

Its a no from me

Hey!

Today I have got a testing/review post and I’m sure all of you makeup lovers are going to love it! (well I hope so anyway)0
So, a few weeks ago I bought the Styl Pro brush cleaner (late to the bandwagon I know), at first impression it seems great, I’ve seen a few youtubers using it and giving their reviews and thoughts on the products and I thought I just need to try this brush cleanser.
I’m sure the majority of you know about the Styl Pro but for those of you that don’t, it is an electronic brush cleanser and you get so many different heads to attach your brushes too along with a spinner that you attach the brush head too and place into a bowl of water with the Styl Pro brush cleanser and spin, once cleansed it then also dries the brush for you, to do this you just simply lift the brush up out of the water but still in the bowl and let it spin for a further 10 – 20 seconds.

So once you’ve put the water and brush cleanser into the bowl you then start by attaching your brushes to the heads depending on the size. You can only cleanse 1 brush at a time which can take up a bit of time but it’s still a quicker solution than cleaning your brushes manually. One thing that I did notice after drying the brushes is that the hairs on the brush don’t go back to how they were, they are flying everywhere so you kind of have to push them back together as best as you can. In terms of ‘cleaning’ I personally don’t think it cleanses the brushes thoroughly, I don’t know whether this is something I’m doing wrong but it didn’t really clean the bigger brushes 100%
It’s a really good product for cleaning smaller brushes such as eye brushes but again the only downside if the hairs going astray after drying
All in all, I would recommend this product for those who don’t have the time to clean their brushes everyday but use them on a daily basis such as makeup artists just for a quick cleanse, but I probably wouldn’t buy the solution to clean the brushes again which is a shame because I really really wanted to love this product

Thanks for reading, I would love to know your views on the Styl Pro if you have used it in the comments. Also, be sure to follow my blog and follow me on my social media!

See you soon – Aimee X

Happy Valentines

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
Today I am talking you through a simple valentine’s makeup look which you can try out yourself if you are off out for a meal later, or you can do this makeup on any other day its completely up to you!

EYES
I always start with my brows and eyes first as then I don’t have to worry about any fallout or making mistakes as I can just wipe it away 😊
1. I start by taking the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and I take the shades Milk Chocolate, Semi-Sweet & Triple Fudge and fill in and shape my brows
2. I then take MAC Select Cover-Up and I carve out my brows and apply this to my eyelid
3. I then set my eyelid with any light powder, on this occasion I took White Chocolate from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette
4. I am now taking the Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay and I start with the shade Sauced and use this as my transition shade
5. I then go in with the shades Low Blow, He Devil and Cayenne and build up a gradient on my lid
6. I then go in with En Fuego and Ashes and apply these into my outer corner
7. With a little bit of concealer, I use a flat brush and carve out my lid where I want the shimmer eyeshadow to sit
8. I go back into the Heat palette and use the shades Lumbre and Scorched and apply to my lid
9. I decided to go for a little bit of a wing and I used the NYX Skinny Liner to do so
10. I’m just using a mac mascara which I can’t remember the name of :/ (You can apply false lashes at this stage if you want too)
11. For my undereye I just use the remaining product on my brushes to create the same kind of look I did on my lid

FACE
1. I like to begin my face by prepping with Mini Smash box sample primer as it makes my skin sooooo smooth
2. For foundation, I have been loving the All Nighter by Urban Decay and I add a few drops of the Barry M Illuminator drops into the foundation and I love how this looks on my skin
3. I then use my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which I’m sure everybody has used or at least tried once
4. I then set my under eye and any other areas I want to set with the Barry M Ready Set Smooth loose powder
5. Time for Bronzer – I switch between two of my fave bronzers but today I decided to use the Benefit Hoola as this is a little darker and deeper than my MAC Mineralize
6. I also use the Dandelion Blush by Benefit and apply this to the apples of my cheek kit
7. I like to contour my nose and to do this I take the Anastasia Beverley Hills Powder Contour kit and I take the middle shade from the bottom to do this
8. I then go back into my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and take the highlighting shade Champagne Truffle and apply this to my cheekbones, above my brows, my cupids bow, tip of my nose, brow bone and my inner corner of my eyes
LIPS
1. To finish my look, I used the MAC Eye Kohl in Coffee and lined the corners of my lips then took a MAC lipstick in the shade Faux and applied as normal

Current Beauty Wish List

 

I’m always finding myself looking on the cult beauty and beauty bay website. So today I thought I would share with you my current beauty wish list! Most of these products that I am dying to try and REALLY REALLY want are higher end, so if anybody has any drugstore alternatives let me know in the comments so I can try them out!!!

1. VIOLET VOSS MATTE ABOUT YOU PALETTE – This palette looks unreal! I am already imagining the looks I can create from the selection of colours! You’ve got everything from a light transition colour, to gorgeous oranges, reds, purples and a black. It is just amazingggggg

2. UNICORN COSMETICS MINK LASHES IN AQUARELLE – Who doesn’t love lashes? I love these lashes as they look so natural and wispy, I love the fact that they are little clusters of lashes rather than just multiple lashes across the band and I just think they are so beautiful

3. YES TO COCONUT MICELLAR WATER – I love using micellar water to take off my makeup before I wash my face however some can be very irritating on my skin. This product claims to be very hydrating and I can just imagine how good this is for your skin especially if you really suffer from dry skin

4. SIGMA COMPLETE BRUSH KIT – One word UNREAL, this is the kit of dreams. I use the zoeva bushes now, however I need this kit in my life and I am going to save up until I can afford this baby

5. RCMA NO COLOUR POWDER – I feel like everybody has this powder apart from me! It isn’t the most expensive powder in the world, but I want to do a haul and that is my reasoning for not buying it yet as I know that if I buy it, I will use it and then it will be no good for a haul

6. TOO FACED BULLETPROOF BROWS – Now this looks so good, I assume it comes with the brush as it shows the brush on the picture but omg I can’t even begin to tell you how much I want this brow product. It reminds me of a bit of a pomade but also a powder as well if that makes sense. It claims to last 24 hours and is smudge and waterproof so were winning all round

7. ICONIC LONDON ILLUMINATOR – I am very late on the bandwagon with this one. I’ve been wanting to try the illuminator drops for some time now as everybody raves about them, so they must be good, I have the Barry M liquid highlighting drops and I personally don’t think they’re the best, so I don’t really use them, but these might be different I don’t know

8. ICONIC LONDON PIGMENT FOUNDATION STICK – Another product that I am only just wanting is the pigment stick that you see all over celebrities Instagram’s and twitters, I think if they are saying that the product is so good it must be so its worth a try

9. ICONIC LONDON EYEBROW CUSHION – I have recently seen this product on a few peoples YouTube channels and it does look like a good brow product and I just feel like you’re always going to wonder until you try

10. MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE CONCEALER – Everybody is raving about how good this concealer is, every time I have gone to buy it, it is out of stock and this upsets me! If it is anything like the tarte shape tape concealer then its bound to be amazing isn’t it!

You can but all these products from either beauty bay or cult beauty and you can buy the makeup revolution concealer at Superdrug – don’t forget to let me know in the comments if you have any drugstore alternatives to the higher end products and don’t forget to follow my blog and also folly my social media 😊

See you soon

Top 3 Makeup Products in September

Hello you lovely bunch of people!

 

Let me begin by apologising for not posting in foreverrrr!!!! I am going to make more of an effort at getting my blog posts back on track!

Anyway, today I have my Top 3 Makeup Products I have loved and used the most in September to share with you!  Where did September go? more to the point where has the year gone? its gone by so quick this year! I’m gonna be 21 before I know it!

 

  • So the first product that I have been absolutely loving and using every single day is the “Benefit Gimme Brow” – This brow gel is amazing! Honestly, I have my brows tinted and this is the only brow product I use when my tint is fresh, its such a natural finish and is amaze! I will definitely purchase this over and over again!
  •  The second is another benefit product and it is the Cheek Parade – The palette includes the Hoola Bronzer, Hoola Lite, Galifornia Blush, Rockateur Blush and Dandelion! I got all of these fill size products in this palette for £49 I think it was and I cannot stress enough how much you guys need to but this! So much value for money and its gonna last you for so long!
  • Last but not least, I have been loving the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette – I’m a bit late to the bandwagon with this palette but I finally got it and oh my word …. not only does it smell like chocolate, it also tastes of chocolate! I know I’m not supposed to eat it but I’m strange and it crossed my mind so I had to swatch a little on my finger and try it! You can create so many different looks out of this product and it also comes with 3 different eye tutorials!

 

 

 

Step by Step Makeup

Hey everybody hope you are all having a lovely week!

Soo, I have recently been doing a lot of makeup for people and so I thought I would share with you one of my most popular looks!

 

The look I am showing you is one that isn’t in your face but adds a touch of class and elegance! So I hope you enjoy reading how I achieve this look !

1) I started with MAC BB Cream in light and buffed this into the face. The BB Cream acted as a primer for the other products.

2) I then used YSL Touché Éclat and applied this to highlight the face before applying the foundation.

3) The foundation that I used was the Clinique 2in1 Foundation and Concealer and I applied this with a buffing brush and worked into the skin .

4) Then with Revlon Colourstay Concealer I brushed the product underneath the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the forehead and blended out with a beauty blender.

5) I then used Chanel Soleil Tan De which is cream/gel product as the contour before I applied powder to the face.image1

6) Using the Anastasia Beverley Hills contour palette in medium I used the lighter shades to set the concealer and the rest of the face before going on to use the darker shades to create a bronzed look.

7) I then used an amazing No7 2in1 Highlight and Blush which was a limited edition product and I gently glided this across the cheekbones and the cupids bow

8) My clients brows were naturally full and big so I used the Benefit Brow-Zings to fill in the brows and give them a little more definition.

9) For the eyeshadow, I used a combination of the Urban Decay Naked Palette and the Morphe 35K palette both which are filled with gorgeous colours. I kept the eyes natural and added a little shimmer to the lid.

10) For eyeliner I used MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and created a winged effect for the top lash line and for the bottom lash line I used MAC Eye Kohl in Coffee.

11) To finish the eyes I used Ardell  Natural Lashes as these complimented the eye makeup and didn’t look too heavy.

12) I then finished the look by using MAC Viva Glam II and spritzed the face with MAC Setting Spray

 

So that is how I achieved this look! Let me know if you enjoyed this blog and if you would like more in the future!

 

Lots of Love – Aimee XOX

 

 

Bit of an update 

Hello my lovely people! It has certainly been a while! 

I’ve not been blogging as much dust recently due to working mainly and also I have been trying to sell my car (which is now sold) so I’m on the hunt for a new one! 

I have also been getting round to setting up my own website for my blogs and I am planning on blogging my day trips, my shopping experiences and not forgetting my beauty and makeup blogs. 

Anyway! I received a lovely parcel in the post this morning from feel unique! I love this store as it not only sells drugstore products but also higher end and if your lucky you may be able to find discount codes! 

In my lovely brown package that I received, in there was 

  • NYX soft matte lip cream in Stockholm – I have been wanting a matte lipstick for absolutely ages now and the NYX range do have amazing reviews about them! The colour Stockholm is a gorgeous pinky nude and kind of shellish. I am yet to try it on my lips however  from the reviews I have read, I think I will absolutely love it! 
  • Aveda smooth infusion glossing straightener – I first heard about the Aveda smooth infusion range when I watched Naomi Smarts video on her “Top 15 Natural Beauty Products” which I will leave a link below for you to access. So I decided to try it for myself! Again like the NYX lipstick, I am yet to try it out however I have heard good things about the Aveda smooth infusion glossing straightener and I am excited to try it out! 

   

That’s it for today guys!!! 

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my little feel unique parcel and I promise not to leave it as long next time!!
