Instead of doing my coursework I thought I'd invest my time in something I enjoy. Now that I have a job and all, January was actually a pretty great month for me in terms of buying new things and experimenting with fashion/make up. I came across some items and products which have now totally taken over my life, so I thought I'd get you guys addicted to them too.
I know that in my last post I talked about how I don't particularly like make up brushes and hate using them but since then, my opinion has completely changed. Now that I've invested in some good quality ones, I get excited about putting on my make up, rather than it having to be a boring, everyday chore. Last week I purchased the Real Techniques Expert Face and Powder Brushes, which weren't cheap, BUT were really worth the money. They leave your skin looking flawless and blend your foundation really well, not leaving smear marks or sharp edges on your face. I also found that using these, I waste less make up, which is a major plus in my opinion. Moving onto the base of it all: foundation. When I get paid I go a bit crazy with my shopping, so, walking down Oxford Street one day I decided to stroll into the well-known-expensive-as-frick Selfridges. Being silly (like I can actually afford to spend money in there) I wandered over to the MAC Cosmetics stand and asked the nice ladies to pick out a foundation in my skin colour. Next thing I know I'm sitting in the studio chair getting my make up done by a professional, falling in love with the foundation, and purchasing it. To summarise in five simple words: this foundation changed my life.
