Follow me on Instagram !

Hey everyone!
 As you may or may not know, this blog has it's very own Instagram!
In the beginning I rarely used it but now I've started to post quite regularly so it would be great if you could give it a follow! It's a really great way to communicate with me as well as find out what I'm doing and what products I'm liking especially when I don't have time to write a whole blog post about it. Here's some examples of what I've posted so far and there will be many many more photos in the future :)

Top 5 Essence Products

So as you know there's A LOT of makeup brands out there.
But sometimes the most affordable brands get ignored as people think you get what you pay for
and sometimes that's the case but not for everything.
Essence is an extremely affordable makeup brand available at Priceline and Target
that have some amazing products.
Yes they have some pretty crappy ones too but I'm here
to tell you about the ones worth buying!
Here are my top 5 in no particular order.

This bronzer comes in two shades: blondes and brunettes. Though the one for brunettes is only slightly darker. This bronzer is more of an all over bronzer rather than a contour colour as it's more orangey than brown. For only $6.15 you get a huge ass amount of product that will last you forever.
I used this product as a daytime bronzer to slightly accentuate the cheek bones and give my face a summer glow. Be sure to apply this product lightly and build it up to avoid an orange/brown mess on your face. I like how its not too dark so my face doesn't look dirty. Highly recommend!!

Soo Glow Cream to Powder Highlight
This has got to be the best cream to powder highlight I've ever used. As soon as its applied it changes its creamy formula to a smooth glowing powder. I apply this with my finger as a cheek bone highlight and it looks stunning!! This beauty is only $5.75 which is a total bargain! If there's one product to buy from essence this one's the one.

Eyebrow Stylist Set 1.0 Kit
This product has been raved about my many people out there so it's definitely a good one! The set comes with a light brown and dark brown colour though I only use the dark shade. Using an angles eyeliner brush and a spoolie, you can achieve some rocking brows so they're on fleek ;)

I Love Extreme Volume Mascara
This mascara has a huge brush and is very wet. This may cause disaster but with patience and the right application, this mascara works wonders. I have the shortest eyelashes ever and this mascara gives me both volume and length. You just have to be careful applying it.

Lipliner- Cute Pink
I love lipliners, they provide colour without being thick or sticky on the lips. This one from essence is only $2!! There's not much more to say than it does the job wonderfully. Example in picture above.
