Yves Saint Laurent Dessin des Sourcils Eyebrow Pencil, No. 5, Ebony £19.50  Really enjoy this product, it has a gray base tone, so looks very subtle on the brows, and very natural.  I do not have to be perfect with it, and it still looks good.  Although expensive compared to other cosmetic lines, I would purchase this again.

Putting on the Ritz! January 15-18, 2015

Well not quite… putting on the Ritz, but hubs did take me to the Ritz Carlton in Bahrain for a 3 day weekend!  Lovely!!

I also went to MAC and was undecided about a blush I thought I would try out.  Format !  An MUA put it on me and I wore it for that shopping day.  Quiet liked it and decided to go back the next day to buy it.  As I went through the blush palettes again, I picked up Sweet as Cocoa on the swatch stand.  I decided to try that one.  So to make things easier I had Sweet as Cocoa on one side and Format on the other.  Sweet as Cocoa was much nicer out of the two, looks more like a bronzer on my skin tone!  Format came out very red compared to  Sweet as Cocoa. So another item went into my shopping bag at BHD 12.750 equivalent to £22.

I thought I would post some of the looks I wore whilst in Bahrain.  We didnt go anywhere glitzy, so I kept the looks kind of neutral/glam for me…. as my apparellel was kind of casual.  Jeans and a nice top sort of style!!

Whilst there I of course went to Sephora

It separates and the colour is not pigmented and does not stay on my eyes longer than 45 minutes.  I am using it as a base at the moment.

The Look, under various different lighting.  Good lighting is essential, thats the reason I prefer day light, as I do not have the studio lighting that flatters and shows off the detailed work that I put in.  One thing I will endeavour is to invest in  a better camera, as I do enjoy makeup blogging!  If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.

God bless and all the best for 2015, may your wishes and accomplishments take you on an exciting and enjoyable new journey!
