New Life Changing Eye Makeup

I mentioned in my New Year’s Resolutions post that I was going to look after myself better and one of the things I wanted to work on was my appearance. I often have a tendency to wash and go without taking the time to blow dry my hair or apply makeup. Since I received my Naked eye palette from Andy at Christmas, I have found a new found enthusiasm for trying to look my best.

I am starting to make time in the mornings to make myself look presentable and today I thought I would share the products I have been using on my eyes:

  • The original Naked eye palette – mostly a combination of these three shades (Virgin, Sidecar and Darkhorse).
  • Charlotte Tilbury Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler in Rose Gold – beautiful and worth every penny so far.
  • Urban Decay Perversion eyeliner pen – stays place ALL DAY. Can be hard to remove, especially if you smudge your line when applying it in the morning but great it you get it right!
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara – very volumising, a great true black colour but my lashes can get clumpy when applying it. I think this is because of the bristles on the wand so I probably won’t repurchase it when it is finished.

Have you tried any of these eye makeup products and would you recommend them? I would say my Naked eye palette and the Life Changing eyelash curler are my favourites. Bx

What I Got For Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you had a lovely day and are enjoying New Year’s Eve. Before I start writing about the New Year, I thought I would share what I got for Christmas.

bare minerals

The first thing I received was this amazing Bare Minerals Happy Glow Lucky gift set. I really need a decent Winter skincare routine and this should help me achieve a clearer complexion.

naked palette

I have been lusting after a Naked Eye Palette from Urban Decay for as long as I can remember. Andy bought me the original set and I am in love! Annabelle has been desperate to use it but it is definitely going to be hidden out of reach.

oliver bonas

On my Christmas Wish List post, I mentioned this Oliver Bonas Cookbook Stand. It is now sold out but I have added the link in case they restock it. It is described as copper coloured but looks rose gold to me so it is a thing of beauty!

snow fairy

If you know me, you will know that I think Snow Fairy is one of the best scents ever! It is only fitting then that I was given this box from Lush from my brother-in-law. If you haven’t smelt this before it reminds me of eating Wham sweets when I was a child.

Finally, I was given lots of treats and little goodies including a pair of black gloves from Marks and Spencer, Lindt chocolate and Cornish Lust. The latter is a strawberry flavoured creamy liqueur. It is just like Baileys but nicer! It is also available in Tesco so you don’t have to go all the way down to Cornwall to get your hands on some.

What did you get for Christmas this year? Let me know in the comments below. Bx
