So here's a little face of the day post because I was pretty happy with how my make-up looked today! These pictures were taken after a 6 hour shift at work so my make-up isn't exactly perfection but I hope you enjoy having a ganders at my weird facial expressions and my sexy after work dress sense (Superman pj top and hoody FTW!)

(I can't even begin to fathom what i going on with my fringe in this picture! Also my lip tint is a little two tone from daily wear.... The more I look at this picture the creepier my eyes look too! I'm so sorry you guys!!)

(I really need to grow my eyebrows a little more....looking a little on the short side! Bonus points for spotting the OPI Nail Envy in the background of this picture.)

I always find that listing the amount of stuff I use on my face is pretty shocking! This was a bit of a "fancy make-up" day, where I tend to spend a bit of effort on doing something different (rather than just doing a basic "natural" look that I've got down to a T!)

What do you guys think? Any tips on how to stop myself re-plucking my eyebrows so they can grow out a bit?? Any bits in my make-up stash that you'd like to hear more about? (17 Pressed Powder is one that's coming up soon!)

Until next time,


  1. Your skin looks flawless! So jealous.

    I just purchased Nail Envy...and a £1 nail strengthener too so will be doing a post comparing them at some point. :)

    I find not plucking so hard. I overplucked once so the beautician who waxed them told me to let the bits I'd overplucked just grow back and accept they'll look dodgy for a while. It was not easy!! I love your eyebrows though.


    1. Haha! Thanks :) I do believe it's a combo of the flash, the double wear and the new powder! I can assure you that my skin doesn't always look like that! I must admit, I think the new powder was the reason my skin looked good at the end of the day.

      Nail envy seems to be working well for me so far but I'd be interested to know what the £1 one is like! I got my OPI for £7.50 (paypal money!) from buyapowa...couldn't afford the £18+ for it in Boots!

      I just hate messy eyebrows, hence the over pluck. Might try penciling them in a bit more but not sure I can rock that look! What did you think of waxing? I had mine threaded by a friend the other day and it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be!

    2. Oh gosh - I may have to give that freebie 17 powder a go then!

      Ah we both buyapowa-ed it! :) That site is evil - I want everything! Did yours come in a massive parcel box too? When I got it from the postman I was baffled as the only thing I was expecting was a nail varnish.

      & I found waxing fine after the first time. I really want to try threading but I've heard it's the most painful, and I don't handle pain well. My eyes stream with tears after waxing haha! x

    3. I must admit, I wore it again today and I'm pretty much loving the powder! If it's still on offer I may well pick up another free one on payday!(along with another lip stain...)

      Haha! Buyapowa is terrible for tempting me! Esp now I know they take paypal!! Yeah mine arrived in a massive box for such a small product. Ridiculous!

      If you get your eyebrows waxed again ask them to thread a few hairs to see if you like it or not. I didn't mind it but my pain threashold is quite high!
