Brow Tips From My Mum | With Lipcote


As the well known quote goes "mum knows best" and since my mum shared her best tip with maintaining brows, I've lived by it to this day! 

Living and growing up in a household of girls meant that makeup sharing, beauty lessons and overall girly chats about our face happened on the regular. When I first discovered that I could experiment with how I looked, mum would let me mess around with her lipsticks and I knew I loved how wearing makeup and looking after myself made me feel. I still raid my mums makeup stash, and her tips and tricks seem to be never ending and someone I go to for beauty advice on a regular basis. 


Brows, eyebrows, slugs, monobrow, bushybrows whatever you call em they're so unique to each person and alter your face dramatically. 

Looking back over photos way back then the trend seemed to be thin barely there eyebrows. I used to over pluck my brows so much during my teenage years, because in school you'd be picked on if they were too big. Thank goodness for Cara Delevingne sharing the love for big brows. 

The most important piece of advice my mum gave me was to "treat your brows like sisters and not twins". I'm sad to admit that I didn't take any notice of this piece of advice until I was late in my teens, as you're probably very familiar with the I'm a teenager and I know best attitude. My brows are far from being similar to each other and over time I've learnt to embrace that about them, I stick to following the natural shape of them and keep them tidy and don't take much off them at all. 




There are so many beauty tricks and tips that my mums shared with me over the last 20 odd years, but to treat each brow as an individual has made the most impact in my beauty regime. I'm so thankful that I eventually listened to my mums advice because I've actually learnt to love my brows for what they are instead of over plucking the heck outta them, to the point that you have no actual brows.



Lipcote have always been a brand my mums used and I've used to lock in that lip colour all day/evening, but as soon as they brought out their Browcote I knew I had to share it with her as I knew she'd appreciate it as an avid embracer of eyebrows. We now all use Lipcote and Browcote, myself, mum and sister to lock our looks in place as we love a strong brow look. 

Basically I wanted to share with you guys the little golden nugget that you may already know but just incase you don't, please love your features and work with them and not against them. Remember, your eyebrows, slugs, whatever you name em are sisters and not twins. If you've got one thats more curved and the other square, try different products out and see what works for you and no over plucking allowed. 

Share a picture on your Instagram using the hashtag #mamatoldme and tell us what little piece of advice, tips or tricks you've been passed by your mum. There's prizes to be won so make sure to get involved!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
