Good morning everyone! Welcome back to another post I am finally doing a make up review. These are some sephora buys I got back in December for my birthday purchases and got sometime to somewhat try them out.  I know it seems a bit late but with products I love to just try them out for a while before making a big review. Also its been a bit hard to do make up haul and review lately since having a baby I hardly ever get time to sit and do my make up so hopefully I can get back to doing that.

So here is my review and thoughts about these products, I will first start with the fenty beauty the stunna lip paint long wear lip color  in chocolate-brown. And I must say this is so far my favorite lipstick at the moment, I am absolutely in love with this formula and colour. I love how smooth it apply and the texture and colour, it matches so well with my complexion and that is what I look first in lip colours. I’ve been looking for a while now on a colour that will go so well with my complexion and I have found it. I will be making so much more purchases of this color and I also now want to give her other colours of matte lipsticks a try. Next would be the fenty lip gloss in diamond milk, I was at first hesitant to buy this when I saw this colour came out because am not much a plain type to choose gloss colours like this ..but again I am in love with this gloss I just love how these colours look on me. Lately all I’ve been only been wearing fenty lip products, and I think I honestly will for awhile.

I also picked up a face mist I’ve been without one for a while now, I choose the yves saint laurent top secrets setting spray. I have used this a couple of times and I have nothing bad to say about it. I love how it feels on my skin there is no sticky or dry feeling after application of it and it dry well, I always make sure to moisturiser better using it this helps with the no dry feeling prior hand. The Anastasia product I purchased was the powered brozer, I got the color mahogany. I love how this color looked it is so pretty, and the color I thought would go well with my complexion. I use this to help with my contouring. Again I love the product how it was packaged I have no complaints about the product I would purchase this again. For the last product which is hard to see but it is the kat von d lock it setting powder. Now I for sure was not sure on buying this, I have been faithful to Laura mercier for the longest time. I have had bad experiences with setting powders settling properly into my skin because I have a darker complexion and some of them would show and I would end up looking pale. Until  found laura mercier power does not do that and it would apply smooth and I wouldn’t get that after effect. So I haven’t used or gave any other brands a try so I decided to try kat von d and surprisingly no pale effect. The powder is pretty smooth and I can live with it. I am happy this ended up being a good review and I didn’t have to give any thumbs down to any products, I am also happy I picked up products I don’t regret buying. But thanks for reading my review remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all!

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to my blog! I am back with another blog post, this is one I’ve been really wanting to do for a while now. I actually have got this requested and I waited awhile because I wanted to do this one in more detail and depth from my last lashes post but I do not want to wait out any longer.

Now am going to let you know and be honest, I was never a lash pro that’s for sure. There was an actually time where I did not wear lashes at all and when I started I thought it was the most weirdest feeling ever! I was really bad at trying to attempt to put them on I actually gave up, until I practiced and practiced and found a way that worked for me. So this way might work for a lot or might not work for you at all and that’s okay. You just need to practice and find ways that work for you.

    1. Stretch my lashes – So first I stretch my natural lashes out with mascara. I grab my most favourite mascara and I put about two thin coats of mascara on. This brings out my natural lashes and also helps me hide my eyelash glue.

 

    1. Apply lash glue to lashes – So next you’re going to want to apply your glue to your false lashes. Make sure you apply a thin good coat across. I am also going to make a disclaimer if your lashes are too long and don’t of your eyes, your going to cut the end of your lashes and measure NEVER cut the beginning you will screw up your lashes. Then let dry for a few seconds.

 

    1. This next step is important because it’s how I get my lashes on of course. Next you’re going to grab the sides or lash part of your lashes and bring them over the root of where your lashes grow out from and hover them over and measure and make sure it all lines up perfectly. Then gently rest false lashes at the root of where your natural lash root is and bring down and use your finger and tap across to get it to fully stay.

 

  1. Brush out – So this is my next trick to make my natural lash and false to intertwine. I take my eyebrow brush and gently brush the false up and loosen them up so that they intertwine with my natural, this allow them to look natural and to stay put. I never apply mascara after because this allows my false to have a longer life span and also my last step plays that role already which is why I cut out the step of applying mascara on my false.

And that is my secret to applying my lashes, I always get asked a lot how I get them perfectly on. This honestly shocks me because am no expert and also remind me of the time I struggled to even apply them, but I can honestly say that practice does make perfect. Hopefully I hope my tips are handy and I could help someone. If any of you would like any more posts on anything in detail I am happy to do it! Remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all.
