At the beginning of the year, I said I wanted to try out some more beauty services and LVL was the top of my list of things to try. I’ve always had quite long eyelashes but they’re painfully stubborn and refuse to hold a curl for longer than five minutes. It’s really frustrating coating them in mascara to basically show no difference as they’re so flat. LVL is a lash lift, where they perm your lashes to hold a curl for around 6-8 weeks and tint them, so I thought it’d be the perfect option for me as I’m not too fussed with lengthening or volumising my lashes, I just want them to hold a better shape. I finally went for my lash lift a week and a half agoand there were definitely highs and lows, it’s a story to tell!
The other week I shared some of my makeup palette collection and today as promised I’m back with a few more. Now I did say this was going to be a two part series because I don’t have that many palettes, well I’ve changed my mind and there will be a third post too. I clearly have more than I thought! That’s enough introduction for now, let’s have a look at the palettes.
When I think of makeup, I think of more levels than just high street and high-end. High-end beauty itself has so many different “types” in it, and today I’ve collaborated with one of most amazing types. For me, YSL is one of those classic high-end brands, they are pure luxury and sophistication, not having to rely on any gimmicks to stay current, they’ve got history behind them. I’ve only tried lipsticks from YSL before, which you all probably know I adore, so I was so excited to try some of their new brow products. I’ve been testing them all for a while now so today I thought I’d report back on my top picks from their brow collection.
I started my bullet journal in February this year and after a month I wrote all about my experience. If you don’t know what a bullet journal is or anything like that, I recommend you skim through that post first as otherwise none of this will make any sense. I still kind of laugh at the whole concept of bullet journalling, in my head I slightly have that it’s just a plain notebook mentality, and I do sometimes feel as if I’m part of some weird cult when I talk about it. However, it really has helped my organise my head and my life so I can’t mock it too much. I gave some glimpses of my own journal in my previous post but today I thought I’d share some of my favourite pages in a bit more detail. Just to prepare you, mine is in no way pretty, I can’t be bothered to make it looks nice so a few different coloured pens will just have to do!
For some reason, mascara isn’t something I talk about too much on here. I go on and on about my favourite lipsticks, foundations and eyeshadow, but when it comes to mascara I’ll only ever namedrop one here and there. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever done a full review on a single mascara. I think it’s because I’m constantly disappointed by mascaras because they claim so much and deliver so little. Even when I find one that I like, I’m not very loyal and tend to go for a different one next time around, I do have a few favourites though, but I do have lots of duds. So today I thought I’d give mascaras the airtime that they need on here and talk about some on rotation.
