The Brows are Back //HollyfulBeauty

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Hello everybody,

Before I quit makeup for a month in aid of charity, filling in my brows was a very important stage of my routine and now that I’m wearing makeup again, the brows are back baby!

The brow kit that I use is the Collection Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit. This product is so cheap and cheerful and I love it.

The kit comes with 3 brow powders a light, medium and dark brown, very versatile.

Personally I use the medium brown colour for a nice strong brow (don’t worry not a scouse brow) and the lighter colour on more natural days.

The kit also comes with a clear brow gel and a little angled brush. I threw the brush away as I use a Real Techniques brush but it is good if you are starting out with makeup. The gel is okay, but nothing special. It won’t keep your brows in place all day and I tend to use it just to remove excess product to give a more even look.

Overall I think this is a wonderful brow kit and would really recommend it as a good drugstore alternative to some of the high end products!

What do you use to fill in your brows?

How I Style // Leggings & Denim

howIstyle thumb

So lately I have been rocking the legging look with a denim jacket and here are two outfits featuring these fashion staples.

Outfit One

how I style1

Striped top | Zara TRF
Leggings | Topshop
Denim Jacket | H&M Mens
Necklace | Debenhams

I feel like this is a super casual outfit but by adding the geometric necklace, it add a bit more dress to this outfit.

Outfit Two

how I style2

Top | Primark
Leggins | ASOS
Denim Jacket | H&M Mens
Necklace | Primark

With the disco pants-esque leggings and statement necklace, this outfit could definitely take you from day to night by changing out the slouchy Friends tee for a chic blouse or bralette.

Shoes

Boots | New Look.

With both outfits, I threw on these chunky chelsea boots, to keep everything a little grungy.

So that’s how I style leggings with a denim jacket.

Is there anything you would like me to style next?

No Makeup Month |HollyfulBeauty

So for the month of February I will be ditching makeup for my natural face in aid of Woking Hospice.

Unfortunately a few years ago we lost my nan to cancer, however in her last few months she was looked after by Woking hospice. I was quite young and couldn’t really spend a lot of time there, but knowing she was being looked after made our whole family feel slightly more at ease during this tough time.

So it’s my time to give back! I am wearing no makeup for a month, which for some people is easy, but for me will be a challenge.

Have you ever raised money for charity?

Fashion Wishlist |HollyfulBeauty

fashion wishlist1

So there are two products that I am lusting after currently and they are as follows …

fashion wishlist

UNIQLO Ultra Light Down Quilted Vest  I found out about this vest from the amazing MissGlamorazzi or Ingrid in her recent packing video and I fell in love. This vest just adds another warm layer for those cold, winter months! At the moment the vest is on sale at £29.90 on uniqlo.com.

ASOS DINO Flatforms These shoes just make me cry inside. I love the flatform style to shoes but the cherry on the top of these shoes is the amazing holographic finish. Just … ah how can you not fall in love with these beauties? These are £22 available at ASOS.com

So there are my fashion picks that I am wishing for right now and saving those pennies for!

What’s on your current wishlist?

Feelunique Skincare Haul |HollyfulBeauty

So after having a little break after the 12 days of Blogmas, I still can’t believe we made it, I am back with a mini haul from Feelunique featuring some skincare bits! I’m trying to establish a good skincare routine and I was missing a liquid ex-foliating ‘toner’ and a day time serum.

exfoliate

After many hours of watching Caroline Hirons YouTube videos, if you’re wanting to get into skincare go and watch, I decided to get the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. These claim to exfoliate, tone and brighten. They are alcohol free and gentle enough to use on a day to day basis. These pads are £16.40 which to me isn’t too bad price wise!

serum

Next I picked up the Detox Serum Antioxidant +3 from Grown Alchemist. I haven’t heard too much about this brand within the beauty blog world but thought I would give it a try. This is a lightweight serum used to detoxify the skin from oxygen free radicals and carbon and nitrogen free radicals. It also is considered ‘healthy’ skincare as it doesn’t contain lauryl sulphate, glycols, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance, animal derivatives, silicones and parabens. This serum was a little pricey at £29.00 but to me skin care is worth it! You only get one face.

So that was my little skin care haul from Feelunique!

Have you tried any of these products?

Modani Mood Board | 12 Days of Blogmas 12

On the twelfth day of Blogmas HollyfulBeauty gave to me … a Modani Mood Board!
We have made it to the last day of the 12 Days of Blogmas! I never thought I would be able to do this and salute those who blog daily. I will definitely being blogging more but not on a schedule.

I recently came across Modani, a modern furnature company, and thought I’d put together a mood board of how I would style a living room. Choosing the pieces was a very hard task as they have so many amazing pieces!

Without further a do, here are my living room picks!

sofa

First of all I looked through Modani’s modern sofas and chose this white sofa and added these pillows to it. I love the combination of the grey *fabiana* & *gabriela* pillows with the splash of neon *neon pillow*.

accesories

Next up, accessories! The *boden floor lamp* is so up my street keeping in with the white theme but adding the wood gives it a rustic feel. I have never seen shelves like these *suitcase shelves* and these really just add a unique quality that all your friends will be jealous of! Finally, how can you not fall in love with this elegant mirror.

a2

Again the individuality of this mirror meant I had to include it! The *laspia vase* again fits in nicely with the theme of the room and perfect for those unexpected flowers. Everyone dreams of having a fluffy rug in their house, I know I do, so why not with the *mateo cream rug*!

There we have it, how I would style my living room with these amazing pieces from Modani! Click here to visit the Modani website to check out more of their fabulous furniture!

Do you like any of these pieces, let me know in the comments!
