Can you believe that we are in the last month of the year already? I can’t believe that 2014 is nearly over. This year has been crazy, but more on that in another post! Right now let’s get into our monthly favourites ❤
I have been loving a few things this month, some random, skincare and beauty 🙂
MAC ‘Sketch’ has taken over my smokey eye look. Since I got it about a month ago I have used it every night out!! It’s a very simple, but sexy look and I only use two shadows. ❤ I have green eyes and it looks amazing, it really brings out the emerald in them 😉
I am one of those people, like most, that struggled with their eyebrows for years. I’ve been filling them in for about five years but the shape was ALL off. They were terrible, for the most part! I mean they did look amaze sometimes 😛 BUT, for the last year or two I have been plucking them myself into the shape that I love, rather than going to a professional. I’ve had bad experiences in beauty parlors in the past, (I used to come out with two different shape), I know eyebrows are sisters but mine used to look like long lost cousins!!
My holy grail eyebrow kit has to be ‘BROWZINGS’ by Benefit, if you are looking to try this but don’t want to spend the money on the safe side Essence does have a product that is VERY similar! Although I am dying to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow and brow pencil! They look heavenly ❤
What I Use/Need:
- Angled Brush
- Eyebrow Kit
