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

Valentines Gift Guide

 

With valentine’s day less than a week away, I thought what better post to do than a valentine’s gift guide. I know that a lot of people don’t celebrate this day but for those that do I thought it would be a helpful post.

So whether you have been with your partner for years, months or weeks, there are lots of gifts / things you can do this valentine’s day including:
1. SPA DAY – You can treat your loved one to a spa day, many spas do packages for valentine’s day which include full use of the facilities, a treatment and usually a glass of prosecco upon arrival and afternoon tea. I think this would be a lovely gift to receive and I know a lot of people love a relaxation day
2. PERFUME / AFTERSHAVE – The classic gift, you can’t go wrong with perfumes and aftershaves, although a boring gift, it’s the thought that counts and who doesn’t love getting new scents?
3. CITY BREAK – If you have been together for a while or if you want to spend some quality time in another city, you can go to Rome or Paris. Alternatively, if you’ve not been together that long or if you don’t have the money to fly your partner out, you can have a city break closer to home such as London, Manchester and Liverpool
4. FANCY MEAL – You’re not really a big valentine’s celebrator but you want to do something, why not go for a slap-up meal at a fancy restaurant? It’s a nice way to celebrate without celebrating at the same time
5. SENTIMENTAL GIFTS – If you want your gift to be more personal you can create a memory box, why I love you jar, photobook and give this to your loved one, this will be coming from the heart and if more of a personal gift so will mean more to you and your partner
6. TEDDY BEAR – Again, more of a boring gift, but if you don’t celebrate it but want to buy your partner a little something, you can just buy a teddy bear (big or small) and your partner is sure to love it
7. CHOCOLATES, FLOWERS AND CANDLES – If you don’t want to spend lots of money but you celebrate the day you can go down the more traditional route and buy chocolates, a bouquet of flowers and a candle for your loved one

If you have any more gift ideas, make sure you leave a comment down below as I would love to read about other gift ideas and be sure to follow my blog and follow my social media 😊

See you soon

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

Getting Christmas Ready !

 

 

Hey everybody!

I hope you have all had an interesting week!

IMG_0462

So, as our first glimpse of snow came on Friday evening, I decided to tell you what I got up to this weekend!

 

My weekend started of pretty boring, food shopping with my mum and curling up on the sofa with a delicious hot chocolate watching I’m a Celebrity get me out of here! I had seen on my weather app that we were expecting snow so I kept having a sneaky look, NOTHING, next minute, IT’S SNOWING!!! I feel like there is something really magical about snow near to Christmas, basically to me the first sign of snow is the first sign of Christmas. We had to put the Christmas Decorations up but I got a simple answer … NO.

Saturday came around and I was up so early!! I just wanted to stay in

Selfie Time Before Christmas Shopping

bed and have a duvet day but I had planned to go Christmas shopping with my bestie. She picked me up at 8.20 and we went off for a girly day. Christmas shopping turned into clothes shopping, not a single thing was bought for Christmas (typical females). Later on in the evening I asked the big question again “can we put up the Christmas decorations?” again I told “no, and before you ask, yes we will put them up tomorrow”. Well, it made my night!

 

 

After a fantastic night sleep, I woke up feeing refreshed and headed off on my driving lesson. As soon as I got back, I went straight to the bathroom and ran myself a bath so that I could use my Cinders Lush Bath Bomb. I don’t know why but the Cinders Bath bomb always makes me feel Christmassy and of course I plugged in my earphones and lit my “Christmas Eve” candle so that I felt extra Christmassy ready for me to decorate the house.

When it came to decorating, we put Christmas songs on and put the tree up before decorating it (obviously). After lots of fun and decorating, it was done and dusted!

I really hope you enjoyed my chit chat post and I shall see you soon
