FULLER & THICKER LASHES | False Lash Mascara Look

Image
Hello Everyone,
Today's video is all about the lashes! I love the look of false lashes (not the OTT Ones but Demi ones) but to be honest I don't like how they feel after a few hours and it's just over fussy to apply them everyday! So this Mascara trick I've been doing for a few weeks now has change my lashes life :)
Ha Ha!! It gives me thicker lashes at the base and there longer and fuller looking.

I've done one side with Drugstore and the other side with high-end So you can see it world with both $ & $$$
Make sure you have a spoolie for cleaning up any clumps that may happen and also that you have a eye lashes curler your comfortable working with.


PRODUCTS USED: DRUGSTORE SIDE - Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara essence Maximum Definition Mascara HIGHEND SIDE - Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara MAC Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara
Lancome Eye Lash Curler Disposable Masacra Wand \ Spoolie

Thank you for Watching

REVIEW: GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment 2014

Image
Hello Everyone,
So I decided that I was going to try the GlamGlow SuperMud, as I'm in the beauty industry I've heard the buzz on this "SuperMud" for a while now. But as everything that is hyped up sometimes it's just that a hype! So I will admit that I went into this a bit sceptical.
This Mud Mask has mixed reviews as with any product, but 80% of people liked it or were loving it, naturally I wanted to give my verdict and my 1st impressions of this beauty / skincare Super Mud!


Okay So I brought the clearing treatment one, I believe there are 4 in the collection of these GlamGlow Masks, the one I have is more suitable for combination to very oily skin and also for acne breakouts etc. - Note for dry skin try the Hydrating treatment from GlamGlow it's in a blue pot ;)

When you 1st open the pot you'll notice it's a charcoal grey coloured mask, when you apply this to CLEAN (freshly washed) skin you'll see it's the same color as in the jar, but then…
