Rimmel 'Brow This Way' Review and Before and After Swatches

Hello everyone! 

Today I thought I would review a product that I bought yesterday because I have heard mixed reviews about it.
I was excited to try this product, I generally don't fill in my eyebrows because I naturally have blonde hair and dark eyebrows. However, I have been using the Maybelline transparent brow gel for a couple of months and have been really enjoying it so decided to give a coloured option a go. So, yesterday I picked up the Rimmel Brow This Way in the colour Dark Brown.  
The applicator is different to Maybelline's spherical spoolie, looking more like a mascara wand. Although I found it slightly harder to apply, there wasn't a drastic difference and despite being a beginner to eyebrows, I found it easy to make both even and natural  

I do have to apologise for the state of my make up, hair etc. I took the photos 13 hours after initially applying my make up (I had only just applied the Brow This Way). Also, this was my first time applying the product so it isn't the neatest. Nonetheless, I really liked the end result. It still looked extremely natural and even when looking close, it is virtually undetectable. 

Before 

After

The effect is subtle but you can tell the difference; for anybody who rushes in the morning or wants to perhaps begin to do something with their eyebrows but finds the process of filling in too time consuming or daunting, I would highly recommend this product. 

Have a lovely week (particularly you lucky people who have broken up for summer!),

Hairspray for Fringes - VO5 Ultimate Hold vs. Bed Head Masterpiece

This post is on yet another somewhat mundane issue - hairspray. There are so many brands to chose from and so many prices too! After going on holiday and forgetting hairspray (I have a fringe so use it daily to stop it looking funny) I picked up some VO5 Ultimate Hold as my usual Bed Head Masterpiece is quite pricey. So I thought I would put them to the test in a battle of skinted vs. minted.

Value for money: The Bed Head Masterpiece is considerably more at RRP £14.95 and has 60 ml less product than the Ultimate Hold (£3.29). However, one can of Masterpiece has now lasted me four months as you hardly have to use any. Also, it is much cheaper online at around £7.00. When I use the VO5 hairspray, I find I have to use a lot more for the same hold which makes the hair look like straw. However, you could buy many more cans of the VO5 for the price. 

Hold: The Bed Head is brilliant. It keeps my fringe in place even when I walk to school in the wind and unless the weather is appalling, my hair…

Somehow I'm Going to Oxford....

This blog post is a little (a lot) on the surreal side.

If you follow my on Instagram you may already know this but if not, I thought I'd just add a quick note on here. I am about to officially become a first year Law student at the University of Oxford!

I'll probably post a little bit more about this at another time but for now, I thought I'd just briefly highlight the process.

Flashback to September 2016. I'd just started A Level and for the past few years, Durham had been at the top of my list for university, followed by Bristol. I had never in my life even considered applying to Oxford or Cambridge. At all.

My head of Sixth Form came and spoke to me and said that a student from Cambridge was coming in to school to speak to students about studying at Oxbridge and he thought I should go. I said I really wasn't interested; I didn't know anything about the universities, I was 100% sure I wasn't smart enough, posh enough or just good enough to even consider …

Challenging a Holy Grail

It's probably a bit strange that my first blog post in a while is a foundation/makeup thing. It really has been a while since I've done anything like this because, let's be honest, anybody reading this is likely 100x more experienced and knowledgable about makeup than I am after spending the year rarely wearing it.

However, when I look online, I struggle to find foundation recommendations for people with similar skin to mine so I thought this might be of some use.

I have very fair skin so struggle to find anything from high street makeup brands (and high end most of the time) that's the right shade as my skin, despite being pale, doesn't particularly have pink undertones, which most foundations at the lighter end of the shade range tend to have.

The only foundation that I tend to buy other than the MAC Studio Fix fluid in NW10 (a tad too dark but good for going out) is the Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry in 110 Ivory. When I first started to use this foundation, I used…
