Let's begin with how underrated eBay brushes are, these brushes came in a set of 12 and cost me less than £10! A Real Techniques brush is over £10 majority of the time so this is a good set for a beginner, I love the look of these brushes, the bamboo handle makes it look super cute on my vanity!

I bought this set of brushes a while ago on eBay and have been testing them out to see how long they'd last, its been a good few months now and I can honestly say that I have not touched any other brushes other than these ones to do my eye make up.

I'm going to concentrate this blogpost on the eyeshadow brushes as they have been my go to brushes for months now. As you all know and I have mentioned many times I am rubbish at at applying eyeshadow, a monkey could probably do a better job than me haha, but these brushes have made it so much easier for me to get a nice blended eyeshadow look.

Angled Eyeshadow Brush: This angled brush is perfect for getting into the crease to apply/blend out shadows, I reach out to this when I first apply my crease shade and then at the end to just go over my eye once more so its all blended in. Also if you wanna really add definition it picks up the right amount of product and the bristles are so soft making it a dream to blend.

Pointed Crease Brush: I don't actually use this as a crease brush (you can use these brushes for whatever suits you best - switch it up!) I like to use this to add some shimmer into the inner corner of my eyes to make the eyeshadow look pop a little bit more!

Flat Shadow Brush: I LOVE using this when I'm applying loose shimmers/glitter on my eyelids, it makes packing on the eyeshadow easier and gives you more control when pressing the shadows down to make it more intense.

Fluffy Blending Brush: This is by far my favourite brush from the set, the bristles on this brush is a little longer which makes it extremely flexible when blending out shadows without leaving any harsh lines. I love the shape of the brush too, its slightly rounded at top!

Angled Brush: It's obvious what I use this for, BROWS! Love how small the brush is and how easily it distributes the product to help me achieve the perfect (fleeky) brows.

I've washed these brushes twice since I've bought them, first when they arrived because I think its always good to just give them a quick rinse just to be on the safe side and today I gave them a deep cleanse before taking my blogpost photos and there was no shedding!

Hi my lovelies welcome back to another weekly update - ish.
2 weeks of freedom is finally over, I must say the first week of easter holiday went really slow (probably because I was at home majority of the time bed bound) but this second week has flown by.

I spent a day with my family which was really nice, every holiday I try my best to make some time to visit them as I don't get to see them as often because of work, some of them live away so its always nice when we all get together and have a catch up. We took a trip to Spitafields market and bought some milkshakes from GBK - which fyi are bloody AMAZING. I had a spontaneous sleepover with my best friend and it was really nice to spend time with her and baby Alayna who has grown up so much crawling around, to think she's turning 1 in 4 months is so exciting!

For date night this week we decided to finally take a trip to the 02 to go on the cable cars. To be honest we always are at the 02 because we are ALWAYS at the cinemas (tends to happen when you both have unlimited cards) but its nice to sometimes do something different and this was such a great experience for the both of us, we made it on time to see the sunset and it was beautiful. My tummy did turn a little every time I looked down haha.

This month I've done some re-purchases on skincare items for my upcoming skincare video and I also treated myself to some cheeky beauty picks, one being the Gerad Cosmetics Star Powder in 'Sopia' and I am in awe with how beautiful it is! I've mentioned it in my latest video that you can watch here.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
