My NEW HOLY GRAIL Mascara

Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara Amazing Before/After

Yo class (haha I need some more ways to say hello! I promise I don’t greet my real class that way).

You guys… I’ve done it. I’ve found my favourite mascara.

My mascara-hunt has been through its ups and downs and I’ve thought I’ve found my holy grail probably about 4 times. BUT I PROMISE YOU THIS IS IT.

I’ve never had a mascara where I’ve felt comfortable enough to post a close-up before/after eye picture of it’s use. Until now.

Introducing the Eye of Horus Goddess Black Mascara. ($36.66NZD).

This stuff is ridonkulous. I’ve heard people talking about it here and there over the past few years but I hate paying lots for mascara because it’s SO hit and miss. That, and mascara runs out fairly fast as well so it can get costly constantly replacing them every few months.

This little baby will be where my fortnightly pay check is going as not only do I need to repurchase it, but I also need a few back-ups (of course).

How (not) To | Groom Your Man – Waxing Edition

Mens-Wax-Strips

Good morning class,

I have been wanting to wax my man’s chest for a wee while now. It’s not that I find it unattractive or anything and of course I’d love him no matter how he looks. But, why not? The hairs on his chest weren’t thick like a bearded caveman, they were sort of sporadically spaced and I quite like that smooth-chest look on a man. Plus I rather enjoyed inflicting him some pain in an evil way…

FOTD – Face of the Day – Red lips ♥

FOTD Face of the day MAC cosmetics Ruby Woo swatch

 

Good morning class,

Just a quick post today, but I thought I’d share with you my Face of the Day! Now, I am always completely honest with you all, and this is not necessarily my FOTD today as such, but it was my FOTD once upon a time I promise!

Anyway, today’s makeup features a RED lip which is something I don’t rock that often. I’m not sure why because red is apparently very flattering for my skin tone, but I just don’t reach for my reds! I think because they tend to go everywhere so they’re a bit risky to wear to school.

Anyhow, today is red lip day. And I actually sort of love it.

These are the products I used on this look… I know it looks like A LOT – but honestly I swear it’s not! & you could definitely recreate this same look using way less products but because I have a literal tonne of makeup I like to try and get some use out of it all.

FOTD – Face of the Day ♥

Good afternoon class,

Ooooh how exciting – my first ever FOTD!!  ♥ I’m not super amazing at doing my own makeup but I do enjoy having a bit of a play around now and then. I think the thing I find most difficult about blog posts such as these is the fact that I am not only terrible at taking photos (especially eye makeup ones) but I also have a crappy iPhone 4S (PLEASE help me convince my boyfriend to let me buy the 6 – for the love of God!). So, I apologize in advance that I’m not a beautiful model/makeup artist however some Plain Janes or Average Joes like myself (or anyone really) might be interested all the same.

I’m going to show you a select few selfies that made the cut, as well as some (average) photos of my eye makeup and then tell you all the products I used and in which order. Hopefully it all works out okay, and I’d love any constructive criticism on not only the look but the products I used or the way I took the photos. Lemme have it!

FOTD – January 2015

…and here I am after!

Excuse the messy bedroom but here we have it…. drum roll please… my face of the day! You may think that I’m going out clubbing or to a wedding or a special event… alas, I was just watching Shaaanxo on YouTube and felt like having a play around. The only place I’m going today is most likely the supermarket, and no I wouldn’t recommend this one for school (if you’re a teacher or student) mainly because of the excessively long lashes.
