THE BROW GAME.

"Fill and define your brows while you are waiting for your natural brows to grow back in." Anastasia Soare.

We're not all born with Cara Delevingne's eyebrows but that shouldn't stop us from having some serious looking brows.

Here are my top tips to achieving perfect brows:

  • Get your eyebrows professionally done at least once. I am a huge fan of eyebrow threading, as soon as the beautician is done I instantly get fuller looking eyebrows and that's without any products on. If you ask for a tidy-up then the professional can groom your eyebrows to make them neater without changing their natural shape. From then on it will be easier for you to groom the hairs growing below the brow neat.

  • Pluck stray hairs between the brows. Your inner corner of your brows should line up with the inner corner of your eye. Whatever you do never, never, ever over pluck your eyebrows, take a step back from the mirror and access your brows. If you keep plucking at every hair that appears out of place then you'd be left with no eyebrows at all!

  • Always use small feather-like strokes rather than one long line. You want it to look as natural as possible so start from the inner corner of the brow and end at the outer corner. You don't want to recreate your brows or fill them in like a colouring book so it's more about neatening your natural brow shape.

  • If you have gaps in your eyebrows then use a brow pencil in a slightly lighter shade to draw in short-hair like lines. 

  • Use a shade lighter than your brows to highlight the inner brows and then use the same tone pencil or shadow for a natural look. Brown's Brow Kit #2 has two shades: Saddle and Mahogany, so use Saddle for the inner brows and to define a line underneath. Then brush through small strokes of mahogany throughout the rest of the brows. This kit is ├╝ber chic and it even comes with the cutest mini tweezer and eyebrow brush!

REVLON COLORSTAY MOISTURE STAIN IN MIAMI FEVER AND NEW YORK SCENE.


Revlon have brought out some serious game changers to the lip stain scene. I love the modern and contemporary packaging.

They have a glossy, high shine finish that have a 3-4 hour staying power. There is a slight transfer when eating and drinking but I expect that because it's not a matte lip colour. They keep my lips hydrated and makes my lips look glossy and intense.

I love the doe foot applicator because makes for an easy application and evenly distributes the product. It's a wide applicator brush so it covers a wide area whist the V shaped tip helps to neaten the lines.

Miami Fever is a vibrant red with a hint of orange creates a fun and playful look. My favourite is New York Scene which is a deep red lip stain creates a a dark and captivating look.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in New York Scene

Both are bold and statement colours that really makes an outfit. I see myself torn between them on which to choose for a night out. I love the dark and alluring side to New York Scene, but Miami Fever is a much more vibrant and fun... oh, decisions, decisions...

REVLON COLORSTAY CREME GEL EYE LINER.

Revlon's Colorstay Creme Gel Eye Liner is a practical eyeliner with a mini brush for easy application. I think it's a fantastic eyeliner for starters because it has easy control and gives a colour that isn't too harsh.

This gel eyeliner formula does last most of the day but I do get some mild smudges and creases. However, as much as I love how black it is on first application but I can see that it does seem to lose a little of its opaqueness. I know you don't get defined and bold lines with gel eyeliner as you would with liquid but I was disappointed that the colour's intensity had worn off.

I love how this comes in a small pot because I can never seem to use up the larger pots of eyeliner. If you don't use up gel eyeliner you'll find it goes hard and it's really hard to apply. This is the perfect size because finishing the pot was achievable.

It has three parts: the brush, the lid and the eyeliner pot. This is handy for travelling because it comes with it's own brush and the lid can expand to be a part of the brush for easy handling. I most strongly recommend that you wash the brush after every wash.

CHANEL PERFECTION LUMIERE VELVET FOUNDATION IN BEIGE.


After finishing my Givenchy foundation I was going to re-purchase it but Chanel had brought out a new foundation, which appeared very similar to what Givenchy were offering. I thought I would purchase Chanel's Perfection Lumiere foundation and try it out. My first few times I really could not stop comparing it to Givenchy's Eclat Matissime. 

This foundation feels really light on my skin. This is both good and bad. The pro is that it barely feels there but the con is that I feel the formula is a little watery. Unfortunately, because of this I do find that by the end of the day when I look in the mirror, the foundation has lost it's staying power and you can really see my imperfections. 

I love how easy it is to blend into my skin. The colour that I chose does look a little dark but it blends in beautifully and compliments my skin tone. 

I would definitely say that the best thing about this product is the sleek and compact bottle. It's light and no fuss making, which makes it perfect for easy storage and travelling.

Overall I did have hight hopes for this product but I found it average and I won't be purchasing it again because, for me, it simply does not provide long lasting coverage.

L'OREAL LUMI MAGIQUE PEARL POWDER IN ROSE RADIEUX.


Isn't this highlighter just the prettiest? I've always wanted amazing cheekbones like Kim Kardashians so I thought I would give this a go to see if I could give my cheeks some definition.

This pearl powder comes in two shades: Rose Radieux and Rose Boudoir, I opted for Rose Radieux because it's a slightly lighter tone. This powder defines and illuminates the face for a healthy glow.

First impressions was that this powder is perfect. I was definitely looking for a highlighter that had shimmer but unfortunately this product did not deliver. The shimmer that you can see on my photos is not consistent in the powder because the more you use it you can see that it loses that shine and becomes a sand tone powder with an inner bronze coloured powder.

The simple packaging makes the powder look neat and not fussy. I like the transparent window to see the powder because you can see the alluring embossing on the powder.

This powder was a disappointment but I do like how this powder keeps my face matte and it still gives me still a slight natural looking glow.
