Back to the basics: Eye Primer

An eye primer is a cream or liquid product designed to help improve eyeshadow and eyeliner application, colour and longevity.

harempantsginger said: I have very sensitive eyes and am searching for a good eye cream that won’t irritate my eyes and make them sting. Do you have any recommendations?

Did you know the skin around your eyes is ten times thinner then your face? Fact. This means it is super important to take care of the skin around your eyes, especially since this is where the first signs of aging usually appear. No one wants crows feet, fine lines or crepey eyelids so prevention is the best cure.

If you’re one like me and have sensitive eyes that have a hard time getting on with mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and eye makeup remover don’t fear eye cream just yet as there are many great gentle and natural alternatives on the market.

WORTH THE HYPE: Maybelline The Rocket Mascara
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara Review. There are many products on the market that get more hype than they deserve or simply not enough, however that’s not the case with Maybelline The Rocket which gets just the right amount of hype that it deserves, it is easily one of my favourties on a drugstore level. This mascara has the perfect plastic spiky brush for catching every lash and giving ultimate volume and it also does a fantastic job at giving lashes a load of length and lift, in other words it gives you BIG lashes. After using this, lashes look long and thick which is something I love and it doesn’t work too bad for the lower lashes either. The brush is quite large so it’s important to be careful when applying or you may end up with mascara all over your eyelids.   The formula is very wet which is something I’m usually cautious of because wet mascaras are often clumpy ones, this mascara does start to clump when you try to add more coats, but other than that it’s good. I also love that because this mascara does have such a wet formula it means there is no flaky (something I hate in mascara) I haven’t had any issues with the formula smearing or smudging, but if you are cautious you would be best to get the waterproof version. I only wish it would launch in Australia.

Skincare Basics: Why you need to Remove Eye Makeup

Playing with makeup is great fun, especially eye makeup. The eyes are the “window to the soul” so why wouldn’t you want to enhance them? Whether you’re trying a new eyeshadow look, wearing a pair of false lashes or perfecting your winged eyeliner it’s super important to remove it all when the day comes to an end.

Removing your eye makeup at the end of the day is so important, more important than I can stress. Makeup has enough chemicals to begin with so sleeping with it on is a big no no. Want styes, conjunctivitis, pink eye or  irritated, itchy and inflamed eyes? Go ahead and keep your eye makeup on overnight. Still not convinced?

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review #magicproduct

As a beauty blogger I’m always testing out new products, usually on a day to day basis and my product theory is pretty simple: the product either works or it doesn’t. Whether I’m swatching products on the back of my hand or trying out a new foundation, at the end of the day I need something that works. It has to be quick, easy to use and remove every trace of hard to remove eyeliner swatches and long-wearing lipsticks.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I’m a big fan of micellar waters and when I first got into the whole beauty/skincare/makeup scene I made the assumption that they weren’t worth purchasing as they were just overpriced spring water, I was naive and wrong but when I finally did try one I was sold straight after my first cotton pad soaked in the stuff. Now a huge cleansing water addict I can say amongst the many other micellar waters I’ve tried Garnier is one that comes out on top, it’s like a magnet for makeup, oil and dirt.
