This time last year I was having lunch with my friend and wiping eyeliner off of my cheek using a spoon as a mirror because, like, glamour. I then said that 2015 would be the year I learnt how to apply make up properly so I had fewer days looking like a child who had raided mum’s dressing table.
I’m not sure how well that has gone, but I do now own proper make up brushes and I have actually learnt how to use eyeshadow (kind of). Small steps.
If you’re in the market for some new palettes, the ones from Seventeen* at Boots are gorgeous- lips and eyes.
I’ve never been one for applying lip gloss with a brush because it feels like fake make up from my early teens, but these are so bright and moisturising, you would never imagine they’re from a palette and not a lipstick.
The eye pallets are equally as good and they don’t crease or look a totally different shade when you put them on. They also blend insanely well, which is my new thing and makes me feel totally like a well rounded woman. Blending eyeshadow. So adult.
I highly recommend if you’re going for the subtle, colour pop look for your Christmas party:
Just kidding, obvs. But seriously, these are such little beauts. Ideal stocking fillers or just to top up your make up bag. I’ve been using them for a couple of months now so I have fully test driven. I don’t have fancy photos of me wearing said make up because quite frankly I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve forgotten every single time I’ve used them. I’m a bad blogger, but you need to know that these are out there waiting for you.
