How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Hi Lovelies!!

Hope you're well 

It's definitely time for some Makeup Brush cleaning!!
So I thought I'd take photos of my process and share with you guys how I clean my brushes

Here are the dirty, dirty brushes haha

There are so many ways/combos you can clean your brushes and I've pretty much tried them all but what I find works the best is just dishwashing liquid and olive oil.
The dishwashing liquid cleans and disinfects and then the olive oil conditions.

Firstly, I wet my brush
Note: Always hold your brush down when washing it so that water doesn't go into the barrel of the brush (less fallout that way)

Then I pour some dishwashing liquid and olive oil on a plate
(ummm alien face or what??)

And then I swirl the brush around to clean and you can see that the makeup comes off straight away

And then I rinse the brush under water.
You may have to repeat the cleaning process if there's still makeup on your brushes or if they're really dirty to start with.

Now I have squeaky clean brushes!!
I put them on a towel to dry and roll up the end of the towel so that the brushes sit slanted, that way the moisture doesn't go into the barrel of the brushes.
You can get brush guards but I find this is just as effective.

My brushes usually take overnight to dry.
 In the morning they're dry and clean as a whistle!! :o)

I hope this post was somewhat helpful for you guys.

As I said there are many ways that you can clean your brushes - I just really like adding the olive oil because my brushes feel so soft afterwards.

Let me know how you clean your makeup brushes too!!

If you have any questions, let me know, otherwise I hope you have a great day!!

Lust Have It - June

Hi Lovelies,

Hope you're well!!

I received the June Lust Have It pack in the mail today and I thought I would share with you what was included, what the card says and my initial thoughts :o)

Here is my Video Review as well:

First of all, I'm loving the LHI makeup bags that've been holding all the gorgeous goodies recently!! There's been a pink, blue and now purple makeup bag :o)
I make such good use out of them!!

LonVitalite - 24K Active Golden Yulan Oil Facial Mask
LonVitalite - 24K Active Gold Full Eye Mask

RRP $59 - 5 Pack Facial Mask
RRP $45 - 5 Pack Eye Mask

"This luxurious beautician's product contains pure whitening essence milk and ultra fine gold foil to even-out pigment and repair sun damage and promote micro circulation to rejuvenate mind, body, soul and skin"

I'm so looking forward to trying this face mask and eye mask - goodness they sound so decadent!! 

Batiste - Blush Dry Shampoo

RRP $9.95 - 150ml

"Winner of BeautyHeaven's 2011 Glosscars and 7 UK beauty awards including InStyle's100 Best Beauty Buys. With notes of red hibiscus, orange, freesia, peony and lily, absorbs and removes impurities to leave hair soft, fresh and revitalised"

Ok, I had to have a sniff of this one and it smells gorgeous!! Looking forward to my hair smelling this yummy ha :o)

I sometimes use Dry Shampoos after I've freshly washed and blow dried my hair to give it some texture to help with styling.

Bloom - Glitter Eyeliner

RRP $14.95 - full size

"Loaded with micro-glitter particles this on-trend eyeliner adds show-stopping sparkle to amp up any look. The gel-based formula is easy to use for a precise and defined line of sparkle. Wear alone or layered over an eye liner for extra intensity"

I got mine in the colour, Star Gazer. 
It's beautiful, and I'm looking forward to using it over my eye liner.

2 x Perfume Samples
I got:
Marc Jacobs - Daisy
Roberto Cavalli

Marc Jacobs, Daisy  So Fresh - RRP $115 75ml
Roberto Cavalli - RRP $80 30ml

"Marc Jacobs, Daisy is the fragrance of youthful sophistication. The top notes of strawberry, violet and ruby red grapefruit make a fresh impact"

"Roberto Cavalli is the hot new fragrance of the moment. An intense oriental-floral, based on notes of orange blossom, symbolising Italian femininity, sensuality and extravagance"

So excited to see these two perfume samples in my pack!!
I first smelt the Roberto Cavalli perfume in the recent Harpers Bazaar magazine and I fell in love with it - I think I'll be adding this perfume to my collection very soon 

As you can see it was another great selection of products and I'm looking forward to trying everything out!! I'll be filming a video on this pack including my thoughts on the products very soon.

For only $14.95 a month it's a great deal!!

If you have any questions, let me know, 
and if you got the June pack let me know what you thought of it!! 

I hope you have a lovely day!!


Instant Beehive Hair Pieces

Hey Hey Lovely Ladies,

Hope you're having a great day!! 

I've seen quite a few videos and posts recently on the Mod 60's look and how it's coming back into Style (I think it should always be on trend - love it ha)

As you guys know, I love hair that has volume so I'm in love with these hairstyles:

For these hair styles it requires quite a lot of back combing.

The Instant Beehive hair piece creates instant volume without having to excessively backcomb your hair!! Perfect :o)

I've been selling the Instant Beehive Hair Pieces in my store for quite awhile now and they've always been popular sellers.

You can get them here:

I've also previously filmed two YouTube Hair Tutorials using the Hair Piece:

This one is an oldie (ha):

They are also perfect for Wedding or Formal UpStyles when you need extra volume.

I have them available in four different colours: 
Blonde, Light Brown, Medium Brown and Dark Brown/Black

If you have any questions, let me know, but otherwise I hope you're 
having a lovely day!!
