7 steps to the perfect eyebrows!

Eyebrows for me are super important, the correct shape and color can make or break your whole look... having your eybrows on point even for a minimal look is super important!

My friend came over last night and I reshaped as well as filled in her eyebrows... 

I used an angled brush, and used Fashionistas brow palette to fill in (you can use brown eyeshadow also, or any other brow palette)

STEP 1 - Shape eyebrow with any method you prefer, I used tweezers. 
STEP 2 - using the wax from the palette I went over the brows, this helps to hold the hairs down and keep the shape. 
STEP 3 - mix some of the darkest brown with 1 drop of Illamasqua sealing gel to make a paste (the paste should be a little thick) the sealing gel helps make your eyebrows waterproof & smudge proof.
STEP 4 - line and shape with the angled brush under the eyebrows
STEP 5 - using gentle brush strokes fill in the brows
STEP 6 - neaten up the edges (on top and underneath the brows) with a concealer brush and some concealer, on in this case, I actually used NYX Primer in shade SKIN TONE
STEP 7 - set the primer with a nude eyeshadow and then highlight using any highlighting powder you like. in this case I used Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow in W.O.S and to highlight VENUS.

For the rest of the face, I used Daniel Sandler Perfect Canvas in shade 09, this shade was amazing on her, and made her face look flawless, almost airbrushed! 

She loved the outcome of the whole look, that she is now buying most of the products I used on her, in particular the Illamasqua Sealing Gel and the Daniel Sandler Perfect Canvas Foundation

What do you think of her new eyebrows? What method do you use when filling in and shaping yours?? 

LINKS - - for the foundation - I bought my illamasqua sealing gel from here - I bought my eye primer from here, but Very also stock it. - this is where I bought my UD palette.

Daniel Sandler Perfect Canvas in shade 08 & 09

Hey lovelies

I received today 2 more perfect canvas foundations in shade 08 and 09, these are the two lightest shades available on the Daniel Sandler website.

In the pics below, I am wearing Perfect Canvas in shade 08!

I love how this feels on the skin! It seriously feels like there is nothing on it, it blends super easy with my Real Techniques Stipling brush, you only need a small amount and just layer it if you want extra coverage. As you can see it also photographs quite well, the pic on the lower left was taken in front of my window with natural light shining through :)

Im super anal about my scars and this doesnt sink into them (i did use a primer though) however even with a primer i find that some foundations still sink into the scars and make them stand out more. All in all, Im super happy with this Daniel Sandler Perfect Canvas foundation :)

just as a little side note, shade 08 isnt 'yellow' based, it has more of a pinkish undertone, and although I have an olive complexion I have a mix of yellow and pink undertones and this still suited quite well.

i hope this has been helpful, would love to know your opinions if you have tried these shades yourself :)

Givenchy Gloss in 02 & Dior Lipstick in Rose Tourbillon 651

Hey chics...

aqui les dejo a quick post on my lip choice for today... Ive been feeling super sick the past few days so today I really needed a little pick me up, and this lip combination was part of it :)

I think this is a perfect pinky nude combination, its taken a while for me to love these two products, but after a few wears I am now loving it...

The Givenchy lipgloss gives loads of shine and def looks best when combined with a lipstick, it doesnt suit me well on its own.

The Dior lipstick, gives like a semi matte look, its very conditioning and is the perfect every day lipstick.

both items can be bought from your usual department stores, and the Dior lipstick Im sure it can be found in Boots. I bought both of these from a friend who was selling a few items.

what do you think of Givenchy lipglosses and Dior lipsticks??
