Finally Makeup Geek is available this side of the Atlantic. For far too long we have had to put in tiny orders to avoid customs and patiently wait weeks and weeks for the our new shadows. Thankfully, Makeup Geek is now being stock on Beautybay.com.  Finally no more worrying if the postman is going to ask you to cough up some more cash. It will come as no surprise to long time readers of the blog, that I am a massive fan of Makeup Geek Eyeshadows.

Kylie Jenner Inspired tutorial

Ok so take the name of this tutorial with a pinch of salt. I was stuck for a name! It’s really only the lips that look anyway Kylie Jenner inspired!! A few weeks ago, when heading off to Galway for the ITWBN event, I posted a picture of the makeup above. So many of you emailed me, or posted on the picture itself, that you would love to see a tutorial. As it is such an easy look to do, I decided to recreate this look in a video, which I have linked down below. I am not trained in makeup, so if I can do a look like this,…

September Favourites
