I pretty much can be seen wearing make-up 80% of the while out in public.
Other than strolling down to my local shop to pick up dog food and toilet roll
or to run errands I have at least one beauty product on to insinuate my
With age (I say that like I’m 80) I have grown confident enough to not
wear make-up everyday. I use to wear products such as foundation to build a
wall of confidence but now I simply wear make-up for the pure purpose of I
enjoy it. I enjoy applying it in the morning and trying out different shades, reviewing
products for this small corner or the internet and it is also quite therapeutic.

products that I wear daily to simply insinuate my features, which is how as

am using the Better than Sex mascara, which although is amazing and makes my
lashes look bomb it still isn’t better than sex, just keeping it real.
If I’m feeling that Angelina Jolie sass I’ll whip out my Too Faced
Chocolate Bar eye-shadow palette. I pretty much neglect every other palette
because nothing can compare.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my most loved daily products I used to
create this look. Please let me know if there are any other tutorials you would
like to see in the comments!
