3 Brow Products to get your Brows On FLEEK

Brows are extremely important for completing any look; your brows define your face and adds more definition to your face. Even if I’m not wearing any makeup, I make sure I leave the house with my brows done because its just so important. Its like a complete look on its own!

Choosing the right brow product can be extremely daunting, especially when you are new to the brow game. I have selected three of my all time favorite brow products which have always been there for me to ensure that I always have a good brow day.

1.Rimmel London- Brow This Way Sculpting Kit

Rimmel Brow this Way available at Clicks: R109,00

This has got to be my all time favorite brow kit. My first brow kit that I’ve ever purchased and I still love it just as much as I did when I first tried it. The kit is extremely small which makes it compatible; it looks like there is not a lot of product but this little kit will last you forever! Like literally forever! It also comes with a little spoolie and double- sided brow brush so you don’t need to buy an additional brush. The kit comes with a brow powder plus a cream brow product. You can apply the powder first followed by the cream or vice versa; I prefer the powder followed by the cream for a more defining brow. Once applied, it lasts for hours not to mention that it won’t budge. If I could use only one brow product for the rest of my life, this would be it! Need I say anymore about this product?

2. Benefit Cosmetics- Precisely, My Brow Pencil

Benefit Cosmetics always kills it with their packaging. This product is just so gorgeous! It’s so aesthetically pleasing that I didn’t want to use it. Eventually I did, and boy! Wasn’t I pleased with the outcome! A brow pencil general takes a little bit of practice but with this brow pencil, it’s just so easy to use. The product comes with a spoolie on one end and the brow pencil on the other. The pencil is extremely thin, so through a few strokes one can easily achieve a natural brow. With this brow pencil, its extremely easy to imitate the shape of the brow and also level up your brow game. The product stays on your brows for hours and it doesn’t easily smudge. It is a bit pricier then regular drugstore products, but its definitely worth it.

3. NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade

NYX Tame & Frame available at Clicks: R 154,95

This is one product that I didn’t initially like, but its definitely a product that grows on you. The more I used it, the more I enjoyed it. It is a little bit more difficult to apply as pomade tends to get hard, but with the right eyebrow brush it becomes easy to apply. The pigment is extremely rich and pomade blends really well with your natural hair color. It lasts forever on the brows, the formula literally doesn’t budge and its waterproof! This brow product is guaranteed to give you instagrammable eyebrows!

Full face Makeup Tutorial

Hello my Lovies

I hope you have been having a fabulous week!

I’ve been asked many a times to do tutorials on how I do my makeup. I have vlogged before but I’ve only done portions of my face, I finally decided that I should and have to do a full face tutorial.If you have been following my blog, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’m always on a budget so most of the products used in my tutorial can be purchased from a drugstore.

Yes, I know its not the best but I’m still trying to figure out all of this vlogging stuff. I do hope you enjoy my tutorial and subscribe to my channel!

How to cover up bags under your eyes

Under eye circles are the worst, they are literally a living nightmare. Anyone that has a tad bit of a bag under their eyes would agree with me. I’ve been having these forever, and at first I thought its probably because I don’t sleep enough or I haven’t been drinking enough water and even though I got more hours of sleep and kept hydrated, the bags still remained. After closely examining the people in my family I realized that its a gene and there ain’t nothing you can do about it except use a really good eye cream, get lots of sleep and be hydrated. I also noticed that it wasn’t just my family and I, but a lot of people with olive skin had the same issue.

I realized that the solution to this little issue was makeup. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t cover it up, but I prefer it just not to be there. For years I’ve tried different techniques and products to cover it up but it didn’t give me the full coverage I needed, eventually from a couple of years of experimenting I found ways to give me the full coverage I needed. Its quite a bit of steps and at first could be time consuming but the results are so worth it!

This is how I look without any makeup on, as you can see the circles under my eyes are horrible.

First I applied an eye cream, left it for a few minutes to set and then I applied the Rimmel Primer as shown in the picture right above.

I seen a video where a YouTuber used red lipstick under her eyes and she had a flawless finish. I thought, Wow! I need to try this! and I did and I didn’t get the same results. I then through that out of the window and then a few months back I came across this amazing technique called color correcting and in color correcting you mostly use orange to cover up the dark circles, I tried that too and it turned out a tad bit orange under my eye. After a lot of unsuccessful techniques I went back to the red lipstick technique but this time I tried a shade darker and this was it! I realized that for it to work properly you had to look carefully at your complexion, so the darker your skin tone is the darker the shade of red should be, however if you have lighter skin you should opt for an orangish/peachy lipstick or corrector.

I then applied the Rimmel Signature Red lipstick under my eye, I used my fingers to apply it and I slowly build up on the product till it was fully covered. I look ridiculous! but just wait till to see the end results!

After applying the red on my under eye, I color corrected the rest of my face and then you apply foundation (I didn’t use foundation in this post, instead I used BB cream as I didn’t want full coverage). After applying foundation I used a brush to blend and then my beauty blender to get a flawless face.

Once my face was blended, I applied concealer, the Mac Conceal and Correct, under my eyes in a v shape (here you draw a v under your eyes with the concealer) and then blend with the Beauty Blender. After doing that, I take a tissue and gently dab it around my eyes, not rub BUT dab! This prevents your under eye from creasing which results into you looking gorgeous for the whole day and night.

Once I’m done with that I used my damp Beauty Blender and dipped it into the Max Factor Translucent Powder and inserted it around my eyes. I then left it to bake and did my eyebrows while it was baking.

After that I blended the powder and applied the Maybelline Pressed Powder. I then completed the rest of my face and as you can see the results are amazing!
