Do you need a brush to apply your prep and base products? No you don’t. You can get by perfectly well with just the use of your fingers for skincare, primer and even most foundations. However, I like keeping my hands clean when I do my makeup. So when I spotted this Real Techniques Complexion Blender brush I knew it would come in very handy indeed. My preferred way to use it? To apply primer.Read more

With so many new things to try, you knew I had to give them a whirl. There are my thoughts on the Catrice new makeup tools.Read more

My only Black Friday purchase? The Zoeva Opulence Collection. Like last year, they were doing 20% off again on their entire website. Last year that meant my purchasing the Plaisir Box, this year that meant purchasing the Opulence collection including the eyeshadow palette, face palette and a 10 piece brush set.

I am pretty true to my makeup brushes. I don’t often try new ones and the ones I use, I have usually used for years. Makeup brushes can also be expensive, but if you take proper care of them, they can last a life time. It is one of those areas where most people will tell you to invest in when you start your makeup journey. But as expensive as makeup brushes can get, lo and behold, there is always a company that will come out with a cheaper dupe. That is the case with this brush set that I found at my local Action. They are a clear dupe for the very expensive Artis brushes that had been intriguing me since I saw them. So how do they work?
