Today I want to have a chat about something I don’t usually mention over here on my blog. I’m going to talk about the products in my collection that I would not repurchase. Usually, I like to keep things fairly positive, because I don’t really enjoy talking about the negative. However, you can’t go through life being positive all the time and I think it’s good to share with you the products I don’t like to show that I’m not just a ‘serial raver’.
So, the following products are ones which I have in my collection that are either empties or I just can’t use them any longer for one reason or another, OR I’m not a HUGE fan and I probably wouldn’t repurchase them when I run out.
It doesn’t mean that the brand is bad in any way, in fact, it doesn’t necessarily mean the product is bad. It simply means that in my opinion the product did not work for me. You may love these products – and that’s A-OK!
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!
Here’s a before pic…
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.

Summer, a time for chillin’ out max and relaxin’ all cool and obviously getting our bronze glow on. Apologies in advance… this post is not about fake tan – although that will be coming soon I promise you. It’s about what I like to think of as fake tan’s little sister – the bronzer. Dun.. dun… duuuun. I am hoping that sounded a little ominous because I don’t know about you, but I used to be a little bit scared of bronzer – and for good reason! Bronzer is scary! Especially for us pale-faced babes, a good bronzer can be hard to find. You can end up looking muddy, orange or if you’re lucky – like a muddy, orange disco ball!
In this post I will be sharing with you my go-to bronzers, the ones I grab for on a regular basis. These bronzers work for my pale skin, but they will also look lovely on other skin tones too.
