After reviewing lots of products, I thought it was time for a tutorial.
I find a lot of women have make up and the tools but aren’t sure what to with it.
They’ve heard of foundation but aren’t sure what it does.
Highlighters were things you used in GCSE geography and Christ alone knows what a spoolie is?
Sound familiar? Okay then read on for a complete guide to a fresh lookin’ face.
Okay here’s my mug looking far from pristine but this is your base. Complete your skin care and sit in a room with natural light.
Take a primer and place on the back of your hands. Using your fingertips apply all over your face.
Using a foundation brush apply to your face. I follow the outside of my hair line and down my jaw. Using the brush cover your nose and start filling in the gaps. Brushing in lots of different directions to avoid brush lines. Use broad long strokes. Begin to blend out and really concentrate on your jawline as a different coloured face to neck is a bad look.
Take a concealer brush and your chosen concealer. Dab over blemishes, in the corner of your eyes and under the eyes. Blend well with the brush. With your concealer brush draw a thin line down your nose, a V on your forehead and a little dab on your cupids bow. Pat with your fingers or brush.
Take an eyebrow comb and comb your eyebrows up. Beginning at your nose and ending at the arch near your brow. Take the brush and comb from the arch down towards your ears.
Take your wax and use short strokes to follow the outline of your brows.
Using the powder pat gently over the wax following the natural shape of your eyebrow.
Take a large fan brush and apply bronzer. Start on your cheeks brushing out the way. Sweep over your temples and then a smidge on your chin.
This will give you a light glow that is very natural.
Take a blusher brush and your blush and sweep over the apples of your cheek. Less is more with blush. Just a pop of colour.
Take your eyeliner and hug the upper lash line. If you make a mistake just use a wipe to fix it. No dramas.
Take your eyelash curlers and your hairdryer and blast the curlers with heat. Whilst warm to touch but not hot, clamp down on your lashes. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat with the other eye.
Take your mascara of choice and coat your lashes. Start at the base of your lashes and wiggle up towards the sky. Repeat as many times until you have your desired look.
A full fresh happy face.
Hope this helps.

Oh my God, oh my God I’m so freaking excited about todays blog.
So as we all know I loves me a dupe. I adore high end products but I get a seedy little buzz when the drug stores (feel very USA saying that WOO! 🇺🇸) bring their A game and smash it.
A couple of days ago I wrote about how awesome the Benefit they’re real eye liner is. I was genuinely impressed with the product and would buy it again.
You can read about it here
But at £18.50 I was struggling to part with my cash at the tills. (I am a skin-flint with xmas and the wedding to pay for)
So I did some hardcore pinning on Pinterest and didn’t find anything for half an hour.
Then the beautiful word ‘dupe’ arose and they were referencing the incredible Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner Pen Black
What do Maybelline say?
Dramatic bold line intensity is now made easy, the shocking black intensity of gel in a pen.
Wide-contouring silicon-tip applicator makes it easy to draw bold, statement lines.
Black-lacquered gel wears all day.
Okay, okay. The names a bit of a mouthful, they clearly haven’t got benefits marketing team on side but who cares really? (Okay, I do a smidge)
I made the purchase in Superdrug, hola 3 for 2, its been a while!
At £8.99 this is medium price range for an eye liner. I’ll be pissed if this is shite.
Got it home and it looks pretty similar to They’re real by Benefit.
It has a twist base that when rotated kicks out some of the product.
The top has that angled nib identical (besides colour) to Benefits they’re real liner. The only difference was Maybellines was slightly softer.
The colour of the black is proper intense, I can see this being a gothic staple too.
I wiped off the excess gel and began to apply.
The pen liner was incredibly comfortable in my hand and I didnt feel it dragging against my skin.
I lined my lid and within moments it was dry. Granted a tiny bit longer to dry than Benefit, but only the teeniest.
I started from the inner corner and glided towards the outer corner hugging the lash line.
I attempted the flick next and am pleased to say this was super easy too thanks to that nifty nib.
The liner lasted for hours and didnt smudge at all.
It was a bit of a nightmare to remove so invest in a heavy duty eye make up remover.
This was the finished product.
I am so happy I have found this beauty! A total saving of £9.51 #amazing!
I am a hardcore Benefit fan but Maybelline here have pipped them to the post. Both products offer exactly the same look but one is nearly 10 quid cheaper!
Get involved and make a purchase peeps!
It gets the coveted title of MUST HAVE BUY.
