Hello you! 🙂
My post today is about makeup products and brushes I got recently.I’ve been watching makeup tutorials on YouTube and decided to get a few things to get me started .My makeup routine previously consisted of a single colour of eyeshadow,eye liner and lipstick/gloss…Pretty basic.Plus the only brush I had was an eyeshadow applicator which was not too good for blending the colour.I figured it would be fun to turn it up a notch.This year it’s all about trying new things. You know how kids feel when they get new toys? That’s me with these.So here they are:
ECO MINERAL BRUSH SET:
This comes with a powder brush,mini Kabuki brush,concealer brush and eye shading brush.They’re oh so soft! I am pleased.
EDEN make-up brush set which has a Blush brush,powder brush,2-way eyebrow brush,eyeshadow brush,highlight brush and lip gloss brush:
I realised the importance of brushes when I began using them.Take for instance powder.When I use a powder brush the powder spreads easier and looks more blended out than when I use the powder puff that comes with powder.
From left to right:
Just enough buff-$3.95 HERE
Berry Haute-$4.99 HERE
Stormy Pink Matte Lipstick-$7.33 HERE
Black Cherry -$4.99 HERE
My favourite out of the 5 is the Berry Haute.I absolutely love the way it looks on me! I’ll do various other posts so you can see how they look when applied.And you guys,I’ve heard that Stormy Pink is a dupe(similar to) MAC’s ”Pink Nouveau” . Since MAC lipsticks are like $15,you can go for the alternative Stormy Pink.Score! 🙂

I also got this Revlon Colourburst lip gloss in Peony:

Here’s the face powder I got.It’s Revlon’s Nearly Naked in Deep Ounce(Their darkest shade):
This is the face primer I got-Revlon Photoready Colour Correcting Primer.It’s used to create a smooth surface for the rest of the make up and keeps make up on the whole day:
Photoready Colour Correcting primer-$10.99 HERE
Alternative sites are ebay.com and amazon.com.If you’re not much of an online shopper and you live in Kenya, Nakumatt has a Revlon Stand so you can go have a look-see.
This is just but the beginning of my make up journey guys! More is to come.
