eye primer, too faced shadow insurance, rimmel magnifeyes

I find a lot of people struggle with how to make their makeup last all day, particularly on the eye area.  It's so frustrating when you've spent a lot of time creating an eye look and blending all your shadows perfectly to find that an hour later it's all creased and already starting to fade.  Sometimes it can be due to the eyeshadow itself, maybe it lacks pigment or just doesn't have the staying power to last the day.  This doesn't necessarily mean it's cheap eyeshadow, I've bought from high end brands and had this happen.  Another reason your eyeshadow may crease and fade is because you have oily eyelids.  Some eyelids naturally secrete more oils and when mixed with your makeup it can cause it to start sliding off or wear off a lot quicker.  Today I'm sharing a product with you that can make even the shittiest eyeshadow pop!

MorpheMe Brush Club February 2018

It's been awhile since I received a Morphe Me brush club pack as I had put my subscription on hold for a few months.  I did a sneaky peek at what was coming this month and quickly reactivated my subscription because these brushes are divine!!  That's one of the things I love about this subscription service, in just a click of a button you can put it on hold for a month and you can do that for as many months as you like (you just have to remember to do it each month before the money is taken from your account, I set a reminder on my phone).  You can also just wait and see what comes or you can take a sneak peek at the month, that way if you don't like what's coming you can just skip that month and wait for the next one.  Anyways let's get on with it and look at this month's three brushes...

Makeup Favourites, Covergirl Peacock Flare, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid, Maybelline Fit Me, Kiehls Vitamin C, Urban Decay All Nighter

Being a shorter month it's no wonder that February just flew by.  I joined a gym last month that has a crèche attached and I'm loving getting out of the house most mornings, dropping the toddler in crèche and getting a workout in.  One of the things I decided to do when I moved to Brisbane was to stop letting my anxiety have so much control over my life.  There are many ways I'm working to combat this and trust me when I say it's hard work but I'm so proud of the progress that I'm making.  This month one of the goals I smashed was to attend my very first spin class which ended up being incredible.  I think I'm addicted as I've been going to them every week, sometimes even twice a week haha (who even am I?).  All this gym going means I've haven't been wearing a lot of makeup through the month.  It's also been incredibly hot and humid here in Brisbane so keeping my makeup minimal is a necessity. 

Here are some of my favourite products I loved in February...
