Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

Happy Birthday to Beauty Best Friend!

  Today is Beauty Best Friend’s 1st birthday! My very first review post was published on 14th April 2013, and here I am 365 days later celebrating this special day. Since I started blogging it has made me realise how much I missed creative writing since leaving my corporate marketing job a few years ago. It has also reawakened my passion for make-up and skincare, and in the past 12 months I have discovered lots of new products that I love.

How to create breathtaking looks with glitter eyeliner

How to create breathtaking looks with glitter eyeliner

I am a massive fan of Urban Decay cosmetics, they have funky packaging, great palettes and I love the use of sparkle, glimmer and glitter within their products. Plus I discovered recently that Urban Decay is a member of Cruelty Free International, meaning that they have acquired the ‘Leaping Bunny’ stamp and their products are not tested on animals. So I decided it was about time that I reviewed one of my favourite Urban Decay products, Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. Available in 7 glittery shades, these sparkly eyeliners are so much fun, they’re perfect for parties and the festive season. You don’t even need to limit them to your eyes, you can use them to draw patterns onto your face and body too. Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner is basically tiny pieces of glitter held densely within a clear base, and you apply it with the very thin brush that is inside the lid. As the brush is so tiny it only applies a few flakes of glitter at a...
