Must Have Products For Your Brows

I am brow obsessed.  For me, brows are the most important part of my routine and I think they frame the face and bring everything together.  If I don't have my brows on I just don't feel myself.  I've only been like this for the last year or two though.  Before that I honestly don't know what I did and sometimes I look back at really old photos are just cringe at the state of my brows!

Fortunately I've sorted it out for 2016 and these are my holy grail eyebrow products that I swear by.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara

This is a miracle product because not only does it set my brows in place and keeps them there all day, it's also great for days when I don't want a lot of makeup or I'm in a rush.  I can just brush this through my brows and it gives them a hint of colour.

Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade

Anyone that knows anything about eyebrows will know that Anastasia is the Queen when it comes to them.  It's no secret that ABH is my favourite brand anyway but this is probably my ultimate favourite product.  I love using it for nights out because it really creates that bold brow and is super easy to use.

ABH Brow Definer

This is like one up from the cult brow wiz.  I prefer it because I like a bold brow and it's not as dainty as the brow wiz which means it doesn't snap if you apply a lot of pressure.  This is a great in between when I don't want something as heavy as the dip brow but a little more than just a tinted mascara.

What do you use for your brows?

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Foundation Review

I heard so much hype about this foundation a few months ago so when I was in the US in September I decided to pick it up during my Sephora haul.

The first thing that got me was that it's a water foundation and as someone with dry skin I love water foundation as they don't dry up or go flaky on me.  It does mean, however, that it can be quite sheer but you can definitely build it up if you are someone that likes more coverage.  It also has SPF15 in it which is great for every day.

The shade range in this foundation is another plus point as they have so many to choose from.  I went for light medium honey which is for light to medium skin with yellow undertones which is perfect if you fake tan like me.  The finish is really pretty.  It isn't matte but doesn't get too shiny.  I do set it with a powder and it has a nice glow to it.

I really really like this foundation, the only downside I would say is that it comes with one of those pipette dispenser which I find really annoying to work with as you never get enough out of them.  I would recommend it to anyone with dry skin or that like a dewy finish and not too heavy.

Have you tried anything from the Rainforest of the Sea range?
