How I Tint My Eyebrows || Eylure Dybrow

As a natural red-head I have very fair eyebrows and although for years I never filled them in, in the past three years I have become a bit obsessed with filling my brows in and I love how much it changes my face. So in an attempt to have slightly more visible brows without makeup I looked into tinting my eyebrows at home and that is when I came across the Eylure Dybrow Kit in Dark Brown, a really easy way to tint your brows at home.

The kit comes with a small tube of the dye, activating solution, a small mascara wand, a plastic stick for mixing, a mixing tray and the instructions, which are really easy to follow.
To start with you need to clean your eyebrows with a non-oily cleanser and then put something like Vaseline around your eyebrows so that the dye doesn't tint your skin. Then squeeze about 2cm of the dye onto the dish and mix with 5 drops of the activating solution. Once fully mixed, apply it to your brows using the mascara wand and brush it through your brows until all of your hairs are evenly coated with the solution. Leave it on for 1-2 minutes and then clean off with a wet cotton pad and you should be left with tinted brows. Occasionally, if they don't turn out dark enough I will apply the remainder of the mixture to my brows and leave on for another 1-2 minutes.

This seems to last on me for about 4-6 weeks before I feel like I need to repeat the process again. I really like how, with this dye my brows stand out a bit more and it also makes filling them in a bit easier than when my brows are not tinted.

The process is so easy and definitely worth doing if, like me, your brows are not as dark as you would like them and you want them to be a bit more noticeable.

Have you ever tinted your brows before?

Autumnal Essie Nail Edit

Autumnal Essie Nail Edit
Anyone who has been reading my blog for a while now will know that Essie nail polishes are my favourite and recently I bought some new ones to add to my ever-growing collection. So, today I thought that I would put together a little Autumnal themed nail polish edit, exclusively of Essie polishes, including the new colours I picked up.
Autumnal Essie Nail Edit

Firstly one of my favourites, Bahama Mama. This shade is a gorgeous dark plum colour and I think it is the perfect autumnal polish. Another old favourite for me is Stylenomics. A very dark, almost black green which is great if you want something quite dramatic.  For more of a grey toned blue colour, I love reaching for is Bobbing for Baubles as it is such a unique colour. It looks really grey in the bottle but as soon as it is applied to the nails you can definitely notice the blue tone to it.

The newer shades to my collection include Maximillian Strasse-her, a Lily Pebbles favourite that I think will be the perfect paler blue-grey shade for this time of the year. I also picked up Maki Me Happy, the perfect deep red shade, that reminds me of Christmas. The final full sized shade is Cocktail Bling, a gorgeous pale grey colour, which I am really excited to try and think it would look really gorgeous with some of the glitters I have from Essie. I also got a free mini bottle of Sugar Daddy, a pale pink shade as I bought one full sized bottle, which I think will be a good pink shade for this time of the year.

What are your favourite Essie shades?

The Sunday Post || Loving Lately

The Sunday Post, Loving Lately, Marble

Instead of a monthly favourites this month I thought I would change it up a bit and do a favourites which is a bit more focused on lifestyle than beauty, simply because I haven't got anything new in my beauty favourites and I have mentioned the products I have loved recently loads on my blog already.

1. GILMORE GIRLS
I started watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix a couple of months ago but it hasn't been until recently that I have really been obsessed with it. I can sit for hours on end watching this show and it has definitely become one of my favourite TV shows at the moment.

2. OUR GIRL
Sticking on the theme of TV shows, I have been loving the TV series Our Girl with Michelle Keegan. I watched the previous series with Lacey Turner but I think this one is even better and I never want the series to end. It is a completely different type of TV show to my normal favourites but it is definitely something I am glad I started watching.

3. AUTUMN
I am so glad that it is now Autumn. I think this might be my favourite time of the year, and even though I love summer, I think I love Autumn a little more. I am a big fan of chunky knits, coats and scarves so now I can wear these things again, I am very happy. I also love the food around this time of the year like roast dinners, stews and soups, so even though summer is over I am not too bothered.

4. SORTING MY LIFE OUT
Over the past couple of months I haven't been posting very much on my blog for many reasons but mainly because I have been so busy that I haven't had the time or the energy to get a blog post written. After results day when things didn't quite go to plan, I have been busy sorting out my plans for my unexpected gap year and also looking into reapplying for university for next year. Although at the time of my results I thought they were the end of the world, looking back now I am so glad things didn't go according to plan as now I think I will be applying for a course that I really will love, rather than one that I  might not have liked.

5. ONLINE SHOPPING
My Autumn/Winter wardrobe is definitely a lot bigger than my Spring/Summer one but there are definitely more pieces I need to add to my wardrobe this season. So recently I have been doing some browsing on online shopping websites (wishlist coming soon!) and I can definitely say that I will be making quite a few orders over the next few weeks. Luckily for my bank balance I got a few gift cards for my birthday!

So, there are a few of the things I have been loving lately. What have been some of your favourite things recently?
