It’s 6pm and I’m in my PJs already (I’ll not post a pic of this!). It’s been one of those weeks, things have been a bit busy, in fact, writing a blog when I was on holiday was bliss, writing after a day of hard work (and homework isn’t just for pupils!) and life as a mummy, is a little bit trickier.
So today I thought I’d share with you some goodies that help me feel like a normal human being at the end of the day.
First it’s the hair. My hair is longer now than its ever been. This is definitely because GHDs didn’t exist when I was growing up. I have very fine hair and its also a bit frizzy – not a good look. I love my straighteners and my Charles Worthington ‘Frizz Free’ to keep that smooth look throughout the day.
As for the face, I’ve a few essentials which are always in the make-up bag. I love thick, dark eyebrows. I use a matt eyeshadow in dark brown with my Benefit ‘Brow zings’ to create the look. My other essentials include a mascara that creates long, thick lashes (this changes regularly as I’ve never found ‘The One’), another Benefit product ‘High Beam’ for my cheeks to give a little glow, and my most favourite, a long living product, my Pout blusher (this company no longer exists so I’ve been using this sparingly and want it to last forever!) in ‘Pearly Queen’.
I’m a bit lazy when it comes to the beauty side – fashion is definitely more my thing! I generally buy haircare, cleansers and moisturisers etc. either in the supermarket or on a wander through Boots to check out the offers.
But when I have a little spare cash, or when a present opportunity arises, my favourite beauty spend has to be false eyelashes. It used to be getting my nails done, but after seeing an offer on a local voucher website, I tried out lashes and fell in love. The place I would definitely recommend is ‘The Lash Lounge‘ on the Lisburn Road, Belfast. For £40 you can have beautiful individual lashes which last around three weeks, £15 to get them fixed for another three!
This is my beauty style that works for me. What’s yours?
