Quick & Easy Glitter Gradient Winged Eyeliner – Blue!

Blue Glitter Gradient Winged Eyeliner - Quick and Easy!

Hellooooo Everybadeh! (Am thinking of the doctor from the Simpsons as I say that out loud)…today I have an easy, quick blue glitter winged liner tutorial which is so simple but looks like you’ve put so much effort into it! This Stila Glitter Liner is AMAZING and seriously does not budge or transfer.

This video is around 5 mins, so take 5 mins out of your life to watch me doing my liner and desperately trying to get them to match…lol it’s not that bad I swear.

This look was created with 3 products and if you fancy recreating it here are the products you need so you can

Real Techniques Duo Fibre Make Up Brushes – Review

I’d say about 75% of my make up brush collection is from Real Techniques. You just can’t beat them when it comes to value for money but great performance make up brushes! If people ask me which kinds of brushes they should try if they haven’t had any before, I point them in the direction of the RT face and eye brush sets because these are great starter kits.

When they brought out the Real Techniques Duo Fibre brushes, I didn’t think there would be much of a difference between these and their standard line of brushes. I was wrong though, the duo fibre brushes are beautifully soft and the way that the bristles are different lengths means that the brushes pick up just the right amount of product.

(the picture above was when I washed all my brushes!! I was so proud lol)

The duo fibre brushes have longer white ended bristles which help with blending and stop you from overloading your brush too much.

The usual Real Techniques brushes are a lot more densely packed (bristles wise) than these ones, so for brighter blushes, darker bronzers etc these are perfect. The duo fibre brushes allow for a bit of heavy handedness because they pick up a smaller amount of product!

In this set there was a blush brush, a contour brush and an eye brush – these as I said are the areas where you would want a bit more of a delicate touch and they are perfect for blending :).

I love the fact that the ends are white as well because it means you know when they are REALLY DIRTY (which mine currently are…)

Have you tried the Real Techniques Duo fibre brushes?

Leave me a comment for any brush suggestions!

Real Techniques Bold Metals – Oval Shadow Brush

Hello!

Happy Saturday to one and all 🙂

Today I have a review for you of one of the brushes from the (not so) new Real Techniques Bold Metals range. I treated myself by using my Boots points to pay for this brush as it’s quite pricey, but trust me it’s well worth it. (I’m writing this as I listen to a Spotify Throwback playlist and Brandi just came on!)

I was in two minds whether to get the contour brush or this one, but to be honest my face is so round that buying a contour brush would be a waste of money! Finding my cheekbones is like finding a needle in a haystack.

This is the Oval Shadow brush, which is a dense, VERY soft eyeshadow blending brush. I love that it has white bristles as you can clearly see when it’s dirty and needs cleaning. It will practically shame you each day you look at it and NOT clean it.

I am not convinced that the whole handle of the brush is metal. The brush itself is pretty light, so I think the section that holds the bristles is metal and the long handle is actually plastic of some sort. It really is beautiful though, with a shiny chrome handle and a bright white set of bristles.

The handle is designed to help you apply the right amount of product and the diamond shaped handle means that it won’t roll of your dressing table or chosen flat surface. Personally I think that is GENIUS and I have no idea why brands haven’t thought of that before Nic and Sam from Pixiwoo (and Real Techniques).

The bristles them selves are quite soft, but because they are quite densely packed I wouldn’t recommend going too gung ho under the eye as this is a bit too rough to use on that delicate area of skin.

All in all it’s a great brush for packing on and then blending out eyeshadow, which is what I will be using it for mostly. I have always loved Real Techniques, the idea of a metals range is great for those looking for a beautiful brush with soft bristles that will last for a long time.

What do you think of the Bold Metals range?

The Top 5 Beauty Instagrammers

TOP 5 INSTAGRAMMERS

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far AND a brilliant romantic Valentines day <3. It’s not the nicest weather today, am sitting looking outside and the sky is grey and it’s really chilly.

What better to browse while you have an afternoon cup of tea than my list of the top 5 Instagrammers for all things fashion and beauty :):

Here is the run down!

I LOVE scrolling through my Instagram feed and seeing a post from this account pop up. Most importantly, although they post great photos of make up looks and close ups, they post short vines of how to certain make up looks. Check out their account to see brilliant smokey eyes, bold lips and making drawing eyeliner seem like a piece of cake!

The creators of the infamous Real Techniques make up brushes, Sam and Nic Chapman have a great Instagram account where they post pictures of looks they have worn to awards dos or press releases, updates on their brushes line and general VERY IMPORTANT beauty news. Make sure you are following so you don’t miss out on anything!

I found sarahlovsmakeup just by browsing the photos section, and I love the clean, minimalist photos that she puts up. She also has a brilliant blog that matches this theme (very VDM if you ask me). I really like the way she lays out her photos and I take a lot of inspiration from accounts like this, where you think ‘ooh that looks cool’, and try and imitate it! Also, she is gorgeous and does her own make up fabulously :).

I’m going to be honest here and say that I love Amelia, but I can’t watch her videos because I find her voice a little grating. I’m sorry if that’s harsh but it doesn’t take away from the fact that she is a brilliant blogger, she gives a great insight into high end beauty and fashion (because she looks like she’s mega rich!). She infamously uses little snippets of tape to help her keep her eye make up clean, so essentially she is just a normal girl with an abnormally overwhelming impulsion to hoard make up (I think there are many that suffer from this).

Ever since ordering my Lorac Pro palette, I am truly converted to their formulas and this Instagram account brings you all the news in their product range, but also great close ups and collaborations with bloggers and make up artists to showcase their make up. However, when pay day hits it can be quite dangerous browsing their photos as it can get you when you are most vulnerable and able to make several large ‘investments’, shall we call them!

That sums up my top 5 beauty Instagrammers, don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram @snosh90, leave a comment with your account name so I can expand this list to top 10, 20 or 30!

Thank you for reading 🙂
