Beauty | It’s all in the Eyes …

If there’s one thing I get asked about A LOT over on Instagram stories and the blog … [ after are you sure your all there? ] is my eye makeup; my routine, what products I use etc.etc

So after the results of a little poll I conducted came back stating 90% of you would like to read about my eye makeup , I listened and here I am.

The 10% who didn’t want me to write about it you may as well leave now…

I started experimenting with eye-makeup when I was about 15 and since then have always played up my eyes. I love a smudgey dark brown verging on black eye. Lashings of mascara and black eyeliner in my water line which makes your eyes pop.

Don’t get me wrong , I’ve not always got it right. Hell no. There are photos of me sporting bright blue ‘spiky’ mascara and bushy ungroomed eyebrows. I also had a very dodgey perm. Not my best look.

Sandersons at Fox Valley Grand Opening…#Sheffield

As is always the case whenever I’m scheduled to go somewhere special something ridiculous happens.

On Monday it appears I washed my face with a flannel that had blinking turps on it! Yes chuffing paint remover – turps!

Long story short we have decorators in who had cleaned their brushes in the bathroom unbeknown to me.

How I didn’t smell it is beyond me!

Luckily because I couldn’t get my brows wet I didn’t go anywhere near my eyes but within 1/2 hour of using said flannel the rest of my poor face was red, blotchy, itchy and looked slightly swollen.

I woke up this morning and although my skin felt a lot better I still had very dry , tight skin that was shredding like a snake. Everytime I smiled , or just moved my face I could feel my skin cracking.

Lovely.

Luckily my newly micro-bladed eyebrows had also shredded in the night to reveal a fine pair of fresh rather lovely eyebrows underneath. Thankfully I no longer resembled Parker so at-least the Thunderbird jokes could stop!

I sighed (in an oh shit look at the state of me type of way) spayed my face with Evian water (again) and set off to pick mum up.

As a ‘guest; we had been asked to get to Sandersons Boutique Department store a little earlier than the official opening time of 11.00am

Its situated at Fox Valley, Stocksbridge only a 5 minute drive from mine . We arrived a lot earlier, I’m always punctual if a little scaley!

We collected our badges and made our way inside for  a ‘sneaky peak’  before the official opening at 11.00am
