Beauty Basics: Mascaras

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics!  I want to apologize to you all because as I was scrolling through my last beauty basics (it was on concealers) I realized that it was not content I was happy with. I wanted to push some material out for you guys, and honestly that post is such a mess. It’s too crowded with product and not concise. I promise to re-do a post on concealers – possibly breaking it into high end and low end. I only want to write the best content for you.

With that being said, welcome to my rendition of mascara basics.

Beauty Basics: Concealers, Brighteners & Colour Correctors

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics! Today I thought I would go over some concealers – mainly because I didn’t realize what a collection I had amassed over the years..

There are some mainstays in my collections, a couple of re-purchases and some you might want to skip. I’ve split it up according to high-end, drugstore, illuminators, and colour correctors.

Let’s hop to it!

Beauty Basics: Setting & Priming Sprays

Happy hump day fishies!

Today, as I stare out the window and enjoy this awesome heat (which is so unlike the weather over here, really), I think about my makeup. And how it’s going to melt off my face.

Dun dun dun.

But no fear! That’s why the makeup gods invented setting sprays. I personally need a setting spray, because if not, my makeup will take a vacation all over my face and I am a melty, hot ass mess by the end of the day.

The Rundown: Brow Pencils

Hey fishies!

So, a couple days back I posted a Rundown on Eyebrow Gels.. I think now that we are all well versed on keeping our eyebrows in place, let’s move on to filling them in – with brow pencils.

I personally love brow pencils. They are a no-muss, no-fuss product and let you fill in your brows in a pinch. It’s what I reach for when I’m in a hurry and just don’t have the 15 minutes to dedicate to my eyebrows. As you can probably tell or have experienced yourself, powders and pomades are not always the most convenient, quick or natural option. In my quest to have the fleekiest brows,  I have tried many, many brow pencils, both drugstore and high-end.

All of the pencils I’m discussing today are a standard twist/retract packaging, with product on one end, and a spoolie on the other.

So, without further ado, here are some options when it comes to the brow pencil family:

The Rundown – Eyebrow Gels

Happy Monday fishies!

Today we are tackling brow gels. Why? Because I am obsessed with brows. I think I’ll post about my fav brow powders and pomades, but I thought we’d start simple and do a lil’ rundown of brow gels.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I need a brow gel. Literally. I can’t have a fleeky brow day without cementing them down with a gel. My brow hairs are quite long and they like to try and run away from my face (you’re probably thinking, well duh bf, just trim them! I do. They grow back. I cry.)

So I have 6 brow gels for you guys today, some clear, some tinted so lets rock n’ roll!
