I love makeup, I have a lot of it.
I'm not a makeup artist of any sort, I just enjoy it.
I love money and I have very little of it (well at least not enough to fund my makeup and shoe addiction haha), I hate to see it go to waste. So here I will showcase makeup and my opinion on it so other people won't have to waste money on silly products.
I'm Chanel, welcome.

hori-tarper asked: You're so pretty! Do you have any makeup tips for beginners?
Thank you so much!
Tip 1: brushes! A good set of brushes. I’m not saying you have to go and spend an arm and a leg on brushes that’s not the case. What you will find is that a lot of brand have the same manufacturer for their brushes and they just change the packaging and the logo. So you can buy the same brushes from another company for half the price! When I get onto my laptop I will post the link to all the brushes that I use.
Tip 2: practice and learn. Practice on your face, on your friends faces, on your families faces even on face charts. Whilst you’re practicing you’ll be learning. Also some makeup brands (at their shop or counter in a department store) do workshops/master classes completely free of charge. Go to as many as possible. To find out about them I have an email address that I use to sing up to makeup companies newsletter so it doesn’t get in the way of my normal emails.
Tip 3: ALWAYS remember what works for someone else might not work for you! And that that people who work in a makeup shop or on a makeup counter can get it wrong their word isn’t always truth. Don’t get something if you feel uncomfortable with it!!! I can’t stress that enough I learned the hard way - walking around with a foundation that made me look orange (it was vile)
Tip 4: be aware of your skin! If your skin starts doing something it doesn’t normally do stop! Get a different foundation or primer or whatever it is that is making your skin act up.
I hope that helps :)@2 weeks ago with 2 notes
I know I haven’t posted in such a long time! I’m sorry! I have a back log of pictures on my phone to upload and review of my Yabay products. I’ve just been caught up in work and Uni. But I am on Christmas break now so be on the look out.
And speaking of uni is you are studying in the UK (in uni or college, it might work for those of you abroad but I’m not sure, it’s worth a try though) sign up for myUnidays you get (10%) discount on ASOS, LookFantasic and House of Fraser all of whom sell beauty products ( from Rimmel and Mac to Tom Ford and Guerlain) and the best part is with Hous of Faser you still get your discount on sale items !!
