Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Too Faced Shadow Insurance (A$34.95) is a full-coverage insurance policy against all fading, creasing, melting, blurring, oil-slicked and hard-to-blend eye shadow accidents. The silicone based anti-crease eye shadow primer is amazingly long wearing and is the perfect base to prepare your lids for any occasion. The skin soothing formula evens out the skin tone on your lids and smoothes out lines while securing a barrier between your skins natural oils and your make up. This creates a blendable and totally intensified eye colour and also keeps your lids feeling light and looking illuminated. It locks down your eyeshadow perfectly until you take it off to ensure no shadow catastrophes will ever happen again. It is very versatile and can be used with powder or cream eye shadow products.

I use this product every time I wear eyeshadow. It really does allow your eye makeup to last all day long and will not budge until you take it off.

Apply to clean dry lids using your finger. A little goes a long way and it will blend in without being visible. Wait 30 seconds then apply shadow.

MAC Mineralize Eye shadow Duo – Pink Split

On one of my routine shopping trips to Chadstone I had a look – honestly, just a look! at the MAC counter in Myer. I quickly set my sights on the MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow duo range. I instantly fell in love with the shade Pink Split. I had already been to the Sugar stop, Borders and Wittner so I couldn’t afford to spend another $40.00 – without getting into trouble. So I tore myself away from the counter and continued my window shopping – where I had to tear myself away from many other stores.

I got home and found myself thinking about this beautiful eyeshadow for the next few days, visualising different makeup looks and outfits and came to the conclusion that I just couldn’t live without it. I knew at the time I wanted the shadow, but sometimes I can go home and forget about it and in the end I actually could live without it. But this time I ‘needed’ it, so I borrowed some money and went back for my must-have-or-I-will-DIE purchase.

MAC Mineralize Eye shadow Duo - Pink Split $40.00

This shade is a dirty rose with bronze and pale blue veining/Pink with gold pearl mono (Frost). The two shades are baked together in a single pan compact. When applying dry you can achieve a pearly finish. You can also apply wet for a more intense colour and dramatic look.

I also want to add to my mineralize eye shadow collection with – Family Silver, Fresh Green Mix, Sea & Sky and Play on Plums.

LOVE: Stila #30 Double-ended Shadow brush

I bought this brush from eBay and it is AMAZING! A few months ago I used this brush during my makeup lesson at Mecca Cosmetica and came across it again on eBay.

Stila #30 Double-ended Shadow Brush

The bonus was it was also only half the price. I have bought almost all of my makeup brushes from eBay. At first I was worried that they wouldn’t be the real thing but I have found that all the brushes I have bought are of proffessional quality – and only a fraction of the cost!

This brush is really easy to use and blends to perfection. You can just slap a bit of eyeshadow on with the thicker side and easily blend with the other side. The results are fabulous and I could not recommend this brush enough.
