Real Techniques On The Go Glow Brush Set || MagpieMagpie Blog


Hi Lovelies. Today we are back to make-up, but with a twist, brushes, Real Techniques On The Go Glow Brush Set to be exact. Brushes are something I have a small bit of an obsession with. I don’t have a huge collection, although I think I can assume it’s bigger than some. As you guys know I wear a full face day in day out. So there’s usually a few top up bits in my bag.

Hoola Bronzer || Benefit


Ok, so some of you may not know this, but I’m not a huge fan of Benefit. I have literally tried nothing of theirs if I’m being honest, but you know there are just some things where you are just like, “no, its not for me”.

I can’t see myself using the larger one up, and I like a high turn over of my products as I’m very aware of things going off ( its a powder so this one technically doesn’t go off), and it just not being very hygienic to have things longer than six months to a year. That being said I do have a number of things that DEFO need the bin but I just can’t part with them.

I tend to use this as a contour as opposed to an over all bronzer. I think with my colouring it works really well for that, otherwise I can just look a bit dirty. I use it sparingly and blend like a MOFO. It builds up well so for a night out you can have a strong contour with it. Continue Reading
