Until last year, Smashbox cosmetics hadn’t really been on my radar. After Áine and I went to their event in London, in conjunction with We Are Thirty Plus, I absolutely fell in love with their Be Legendary lipsticks, especially Skinny Jeans, their gorgeous dark blue lipstick ♥
I know this post is a little bit late, but I’ve been really good at scheduling posts recently and I didn’t wanna go messing it all up!
Valentine’s Day was pretty uneventful in our house; J and I watched The X-Files, cuddled up on the sofa and scoffed loads of Quality Streets 🙂
I’m super late to the bandwagon as usual, but you know what? I don’t care 😛 If you have no idea what I’m talking about, the “power of make-up” is basically just a comparison of your before make-up and after make-up face which has been going viral on Twitter and Instagram! It shows off how different makeup can make you look!
I’ve been wearing this look a lot this week, so I thought I’d share it with you all 🙂
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 🙂
