I mentioned this in my newsletter last week, this year has started off so much faster than I would have liked. I said NO to a lot more this week and tried to avoid rushing from place to place but here I am at home for 30 minutes before I rush off to catch Cameron swimming just now. I have spoken to two people who are both feeling the same, they are in totally different cities, different jobs so it is clearly the theme for the year which honestly I am not excited about.
Anyway lets get back to all things beauty! I realise I am at the stage in this series where I probably need to start doing videos to actually show you how awesome these products are. I will get there, I promise! This week’s product is another Essence product from my advent calendar.
I thought I had found a great mascara until I tried this one, it was even better than the one I had which really was pretty amazing. I always underestimate the difference mascara can make, it is so quick and easy to apply and makes a big difference to your appearance.
This mascara feels like you are almost painting eyelashes on, even with no eye shadow on it makes such a big difference. I also prefer the larger container than the smaller thinner ones, it is easier for me to control them when I can hold it properly.
I attended a talk earlier this week about confidence and how to dress confidently. One of the things she said was that your face is like your TV screen, it is how you convey your message to the world. People will look at what you are wearing but they will always return to your eyes, so make sure your face tells the right story. It was pretty powerful stuff and has been re-thinking my “make up only when I have to wear it” thinking.
What is your favourite mascara?
