Washing my Make Up brushes

*I normally wash my brushes in my on suite but there was better lighting in the kitchen. So this is a short post on how i clean my make up brushes. There are quite a few different ways i have seen people clean their brushes. Mine is a pretty bog standard way of cleaning my brushes. I use Mac brush cleaner but i am really interested in trying different ones, so i would love to know what you use! As you can see i lay out some kitchen roll to lay the clean brushes on after washing them which i always do without fail as I'm a hygiene freak.  First of all i run the tap and get the water warm, not too hot that it burns your fingers.  I take one brush at a time and pop a bit of brush cleaner on the bristles. I run it gently through the bristles. Then i continue to rub in the cleaner but now i do so whilst holding the brush under the tap. I continue to do this until the water runs clean ( sometimes i have to repeat 2,3,4 depending on how dirty the brush is). I do this to every brush

Top 5 (6) Lipsticks

Picking my Top 5 Lipsticks was really hard as i love lipsticks so much and use a lot frequently, so I've added one that i couldn't go without mentioning :) 1: Mac, Creme Cup This is my work lipstick. I wear it a lot and have nearly come to the end of it so will be re purchasing soon. Its lovely and creamy on the lips and as i am fair skinned gives a nice glaze of pale pink on my lips. It doesn't crack on my lips but makes them feel nice and soft. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to buy their first Mac Lipstick or something with a tad of colour to just brighten up your face.  2: Sleek, Peaches and Cream I love wearing this when using a peachy toned blusher as it makes me look so bright and healthy. It goes really nice with red/orange hair and just gives a lovely dab of colour that seems to really compliment my skin tone. I do find this lipstick a bit drying but i do exfoliate and apply lip balm before hand. This lipstick is easy to build and can become

Birthday Haul

For those of you that know it was my birthday at the beginning of this month and did ask if anyone would like to see what i got and all i got was YES so here it is.  * Please note that this is not a bragging post.

Mac Viva Glam Nicki

Just before i get started i just wanted to say a birthday haul will be up, was just having problems with the pictures i took so it will be up hopefully thursday evening. So i had been waiting for this lipstick for ages, i had heard so much about it from American blogs and American YouTube channels.  This lipstick has jumped into my top ten fav colours. On a day to day basis i wear pale pinks, pinky nudes or coral nudes and when i feel brave i generally go for a bright pink or coral and this Viva Glam Nicki is my perfect in between. I personally describe this as a pinky coral where as at Mac they describe it as a pink with yellow undertones. But do go down to your local counter to give it a swatch as it looks different on different skin tones. I found it nice and creamy but after an hour it did go quite dry but a nice lipgloss over the top would probably do the job of keeping it going for a bit longer. For the £££ I'm happy as Viva Glam proceeds go to the Mac aids charity w
