Want to make your highlight or eyeshadow pop? Then try this

Hello everyone hope you’re all doing well 😃.

Today i will be sharing with you a very effective tip/product to make your eye shadow or powder highlighter standout. 

This product is the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Fixing Spray. It is a light weight setting spray that dries quickly and lasts for the majority of the day. Now i have always used it for my shimmery eye shadows but i recently started using it for my highlighters too and i just love it.

To use for eye shadow or highlighter, i simply spray a little bit on the brush i’m using to apply the particular makeup, pat or rub the wet brush on the eye shadow or highlighter and apply to my face.

  • MUA undress your skin shimmer highlighter in the shade ‘Golden Afterglow: This drugstores brand of highlighters are so good and the price is just right. It retails for GBP 3.00 (USD 3.88 , NGN: 1219.98). This highlighter goes so well with the pro fix spray. It defines it and makes it stay put. 
  • MUA undress your skin shimmer highlighter in the shade ‘Radiant Cashmere:  With this highlighter, there was not much difference when swatched on its own and with pro fix. So this one doesn’t really need pro fix to help it pop, but pro fix can still be used to make it last longer. This product retails for GBP 3.00 (USD 3.88 , NGN: 1219.98). 
  • Uberchic ville pressed glitter in the shade ‘Jade: This beautiful pressed glitter retails for NGN 714 (USD: $2.85, GBP: £1.74). When used on the eyelid it looks so good and a little definitely goes a long way. Now below is a comparison of the pressed glitter with and without the pro fix makeup spray. Well as you can see, it looked way better before adding it to the pro fix. So this product can be used on its own without the use of any adhesive or defining factor such as the pro fix.

My secret to longer eyelashes 

Every woman wants to have long beautiful lashes, and I am one of those women who cannot stand having a false lash glued to my eyelids 😄.

I have always had medium length lashes but always wanted it to be longer, and that way I wouldn’t have to bother about getting false lashes. So I explored my options and found solutions. Well, lately I’ve been getting lots of compliments on how long my lashes are and have decided to share with you all my tips and secret.

Mascara.

When buying a mascara, I always tend to look out for two things: the type of wand it has and if it’ll be a growth, volumising or lengthening mascara. The ones I use are;

  1. Gosh the secret of longer lashes mascara in black: this is a Growth Mascara. It claims to give you longer lashes after two weeks. Now I actually can say that it works, but at a slow rate. One thing for sure is that it separates my lashes because of the design of the wand and it adds volume to it while making it look longer. growthmascara_open2
  2. Makeup revolution viper mascara in black: I am in love with this mascara. The minute I saw the curve of the brush and then actually tried it at home, it was just so good. It builds up nicely and adds volume to your lashes. This is my all time favourite mascara.2313
  3. Collection lengthening mascara in ultra black: now this one is perfect for a simple nomakeup makeup look. It’s subtle and doesn’t add much volume to your lashes, but it sure does lengthen them. It separates the lashes and with each coat makes it look longer without the clumping effect.10179408
  4. L’Oréal false lash superstar red carpet black mascara: this is another favourite of mine. It comes in two steps, 1 is a primer and 2 is a jet black fiber rich formula which is black light infused pigment with blue undertones. The primer is white and thickens the lashes with each coat, while the second step comes with a curved wand which separates your lashes while adding length to it. It is great for a dramatic look or an alternative to a false lash.l-oreal-false-lash-superstar-red-carpet-black-mascara-l-oreal-paris-10023265_b_p

Now for the reason why we’re really here 🤗, my secret to full longer lashes. Now this particular product I’m about to mention was recommended to me by a friend (Behnaz). When we first met, her lashes were the first things I noticed, they are so long and 😍beautiful. I just had to ask how she gets her lashes so long and she told me, and I literally ordered it online that same day.

This wonderful product is called Xlash eyelash serum.

I cannot express my love for this product enough. From day one it started working. It claims to give you longer, thicker, darker lashes and I can honestly confirm that it definetly does what it says. It has a slim tip for easy application which glides on easily to both your upper and lower lash lines. It is recommended that you use this product for a minimum of 30 days to see results. Well I have been using it for 4 months and the results are amazing. My lashes have actually grown longer and look really healthy. I use it every night after i have taken my makeup off and washed my face. My first bottle is almost empty and I will definetly buy another one.

I’ll leave the various links below for anyone who wants to try any of the above products out.
