Brows. Ah, brows.
Probably one of the biggest beauty chores out there, filling them in, threading them, setting them, tinting them, waxing them, tweezing…there’s an awful lot you can do to your brows.
When I was around fourteen, I started to have my eyebrows waxed. I know that sounds like an early age, and looking back on it, maybe it was. Luckily my waxing years ran pretty smoothly and at the age of twenty-one I still, thankfully, have a full brow.
Throughout the week I need my makeup to stay in place all day, sometimes I wear my makeup for ten hours with barely any touch ups. The one thing I really don’t want to be worrying about is my eye shadow. I haven’t got a problem reapplying my concealer quickly, dusting a bit of powder here and there but who really wants to mess about with eye shadow at work?
2014 was the year of complexion for me, foundations, concealers, setting powders, blushers, you name it, if it went on the skin, I wanted to know about it.
One product that really changed the complexion game for me was the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles concealer. Before I found this I was busy trying to make the collection lasting perfection concealer work under my eyes, it wasn’t pretty. In fact, up until trying the Maybelline offering I had struggled for a long time with under eye concealers.
Berry tones are some of my favorite colours to wear in the colder months. At Christmas time its all about the straight up reds, warm reds, blue reds, even gloss reds, but for everyday wear throughout the winter plummy shades are my go to.
