I just wanted to share a quick post with you all.  It’s my birthday on Thursday (*cough* 31, where on earth did the time go?) and these presents have started appearing in the lounge!!  Sorry for the awful photo, I’m not exactly allowed to pick them up and move them 😛

Babyliss Curl Secret Review

Back in November 2013, I was about to go on my first official date with J, so I popped to my local hairdresser to get my hair done! Talk about trying to make a good impression! She said she’d just bought a Curl Secret which was relatively new. I was really intrigued so I said I’d be her guinea pig and let her try it out on my hair!!

Winged eyeliner tutorials

As I mentioned in my smoky eye look post, I really need to practice applying eyeliner (liquid and gel) to my top lash line and also the flick/wing at the end.

Today’s Attempt | A Smoky Eye Look

Winged Eyeliner

So as promised, I’ve just finished my first attempt at recreating a make-up tutorial I found on Pinterest.  I wanted to do this because there are so many tutorials out there and a lot of the vidoes/blog/photos assume that we know all the terms and have all the right brushes and kit etc.  I find that I use a lot of baby wipes/make-up remover when I’m trying a new look as it always goes a bit awry, but no one really shows that part or the hours of practice it takes.  So if you’re not very confident at putting on make-up or it never really looks like it should, don’t worry, you are not alone 🙂
