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.
You can find the Instagram associated with this blog here. There will be live swatches and quick reviews posted.
Anonymous said: which sleek products would you say compliment brown skin tones really well?
Well Sleek as a company was started for deeper/browner skintones so all of their products will more or less be suited.
My favourites from Sleek are:
The blushes (particularly blush by 3, as you get more product for your money, rose gold as it works as a lovely highlighter/shimmer and pixie pink as its hard to find a baby pink blush that doesn’t come out as ashy on black skin, pixie pink is just right).
The eyeshadow palettes (my top three iare garden of eden, oh so special and snapshots).
Finally their eyebrow pencil.
I hope that helps! :)@1 month ago

welcome-to-the-salty-spittoon said: 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 :)@5 months ago with 3 notes
