Make Up Products I Hate

Okay so hate's a strong word haha , maybe the title should be 'Make up products I dislike ' instead .

Some of these products are expensive to buy , some people might like them but this is just my honest opinion . Before I buy makeup I usually read lots of reviews so I'm not wasting my money on a terrible product , but these products (except LA Girl Pro Conceal & Smashbox Primer Water) where impulse buys . Let me know if you like these more chit chat videos as well as tutorials , I actually find them really enjoyable to record .

Dramatic Glitter Winged Eyeliner

Well I think everyone knows at this stage that I am kind of a fan of winged eyeliner haha . I thought I would go a little more dramatic on the wing & apply some glitter . I bought nail art brushes from Poundland & they are so handy (and cheap) for detailed looks. If there is any fall out of glitter you can always tidy it up with a wipe , this is why I like applying foundation etc after the eyes . I must write a blog post on the eyebrow product I currently use because I absolutely love it ! This look  would look lovely with a sleeked back ballerina bun .

Product List

Black Pencil Eyeliner : Ted Baker Black Eyeliner Pencil (from a Christmas set)
Glitter : Penneys/Primark Gold Glitter
Fake Eyelash Glue : DUO Striplash Adhesive -Clear

Cranberry & Rose Gold | Eye Make Up Tutorial

This weeks make up look is on this eye look that I wore in last weeks SOSU contour palette tutorial . Its a way to incorporate colour into your make up without being over the top . Cranberry & burgundy tones are especially nice on green eyes as they are the opposite on the colour wheel & really make the eyes pop.

Its a half cut crease look so there is a defined cut at the inner part of the eyelid then the outer part of the eyelid is more blended .

Gym Playlist | My Top Ten Tracks

I always find I do a better workout when I have good motivating music to listen too . Since a lot of people are getting into fitness this Janaury I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my all time favourite music tracks to listen to in the gym . Please keep in mind I listen to a lot of rap/R'n'B .

1. Can't Be Touched  - Roy Jones 
Roy Jones was also a world champion boxer & used this song as his entrance song. Its been out for years but I find it the best for getting into workout mode .

2. Till I Collapse - Eminem
I don't think I will ever find a song as uplifting & motivating then this ! If I could this gym playlist would probably be 80% Eminem .

Listen :Click Here .

3. Unstoppable - Sia
This ones definitely a lot less .... ghetto haha . Sia's voice is just something else & the lyrics are perfect when your struggling with that last rep .

Listen :Click Here .

SOSU Contour Palette | Review & Tutorial

I got this palette as a Christmas gift from my Aunt but I was actually going to go out & buy it because the week before I received it as a gift we got it in work & I loved using it on clients .

The creams are really creamy & easy to blend , which is very important when it comes to cream contouring because previously I've had cream contour products that set in place straight away , leaving me with zero time to blend them out . The two powders in the palette aren't overly pigment so you don't have to worry about ruining your make up by applying too much , instead you can gradually build on the colour . The shades are perfect for Irish skin tones & there is nothing too dark . There is also a shimmery cream highlighter which I love using under powder highlights just to make them super intense .

The palette retails at €29.95 on the SOSU online shop .

Simple Brown Smokey Eye | Video Make Up Tutorial

First Post of 2017 ,  Woooo ! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas & New Year . I for one am kind of happy that everything's back to normal . Don't think I could look at another box of chocolates or a glass of wine at this stage .

Watch in HD : Click Here .

I recorded this the morning after New Years Eve so please excuse the messy hair & not so fresh face haha . This look is quite simple to create you just need patience and some good blending brushes . It would go with basically any outfit or lip colour . I did a lot of blending underneath my eyes also , but if that's not your thing or if you have smaller eyes , you can apply less under your eyes .

Product's Listed & Linked
Black Pencil Eyeliner : Ted Baker Black Eyeliner Pencil (from a Boots Christmas Gift Set)
Mascara : Ted Baker Mascara (from a Boots Christmas Gift Set )
Fake Eyelashes : Poundland
