Pixiwoo/Real techniques…

I have been a huge fan of Sam Chapman and Nic Haste for many years now, (aka Pixiwoo), and I have been lucky enough to be in touch with Sam for a good number of years.  She is so down to earth and when I contacted her to ask if she could sign a card for my Daughter, she didn't hesitate!  I also managed to buy my daughter some Real Techniques brushes and she was so excited when she opened [...]

Bobbi Brown pro lip palette, etc

Make-up addict!

Busy week, doing demos at the Grimsby Institute and doing make-up trials too.  I decided to buy the Bobbi Brown Pro Lip palette, (aswell as a few other essentials) for my make-up kit.  This palette is awesome.  Its got a range of 54 shades in it, ranging from very nude/natural to more pinky tones and then more dramatic reds/browns.  I can't wait to use it.  I am also loving using the new Illamasqua masquara in Raven, it is smudge-proof [...]
