3 Gift Ideas – Blogmas #6


It’s Lau. And welcome to Blogmas Day 6. Today let’s talk about gift ideas.

I don’t know about you but I struggle to think up gift ideas unless I really know the person. So, over the last few weeks I’ve compiled together a few gift ideas that could be helpful to you.

If you’d like to find out what they are then keep on reading.


Gift Ideas

1. Clothes Particularly Hoodies

I’m pretty sure everyone loves hoodies, your mum, your nan, brothers, sisters..ect. They’re so comfortable and perfect around this time of year.

2. Gift Cards

This is kind of hit or miss, if you know a particular store that they like then buy them a gift card so they can spend it when they can. Therefore, you can’t really go wrong.

3. Candles

Unless they are completely clumsy then candles are a good inbetween gift. Candles smell great, and make a home feel more like a home.

I hope I gave you some ideas, thank you for reading.

I will see you tomorrow.

How To : Apply Fake Eyelashes


It’s Lau. And today I am going to show you how to apply fake eyelashes. At one point or another everyone has struggled with putting on eyelashes, only last year did I learn how to apply them.

I want to give you some tips and tricks on how to apply them.

How To Apply Fake Eyelashes

So, when it comes to eyelashes, there are many different styles. As you dive into it more you’ll find out what suit’s your eye shape.

Start of with cheap eyelashes

There’s nothing worse then starting off with fake eyelashes and you ruin a great pair. In Superdrug, there are fake eyelashes for £1 or £2. These are good to start off with.

Cut it to your eye shape

The lashes are always too big, cut them so that they don’t start poking your eye in the middle of the day.

Good eyelash glue

If you don’t have a good eyelash glue, it will never stick. Duo lash glue is good and the Superdrug own brand one is too.

Don’t move it around too much.

When you’re putting on the lash, the worst thing you can do is move it around. Wait until the glue is tacky and it will make your life a whole lot earlier.

Squeeze your real with your fake

Always mush together your lashes with the false ones. It will make a seemless blend.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My Eyelashes are pin straight. How do I get them to blend into my falses?

The answer is a little easier then you think. My sister has pin straight lashes, they won’t curl or do anything really so the trick I found when doing her makeup is put them on the lashes. If you can’t blend your lashes into your the fake, blend the fake into the lashes. That way it’s seemless.

2. What brand of eyelashes would you recommend?

Eylure is a really good brand, particularly these ones. I love these ones.

I think I will this post here. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post.

Binky London Mascara Review


It’s Lau and FINALLY I am diving into the makeup side of things. Today I will be doing a review of Binky London Mascaras and comparing them to other mascaras.

I have both of them which are the volumising one and the waterproof, I will be putting them to the test.

Is it actually volumising? Is it actually waterproof? Does it last all day? Does it hold a curl?

If they work really well, then you can save some money because they are only £2 each.

So let’s get into this review.

Right off the bat, the mascara tube is really bright which could be actually really easy to find when looking for it.

The wands are pretty standard, the volumising one (bright pink one) is a little bigger. One thing I do have to say is it is really wet, the formula is really wet which I can’t see it doing much for your lashes.

The waterproof one seems to have slightly a better formula, it isn’t as wet.

Applying the volumising one was a little difficult, it doesn’t add any lift at all which I expected with the wet formula. Also it will get everywhere, even if you’re being really careful. It might be good if you wanted a natural lash without much lift.

The waterproof one gave a lot more lift, maybe I’m just clumsy but I got this one everywhere as well it isn’t as bad as the other one though.

I do recommend this one, but do they last all day?

The answer is yes. For me they did. The waterproof one lasted a lot longer.

I don’t believe that the waterproof one is quite as waterproof as it claims to be.

They’re only £2. It is good for the price but I know a £1 mascara and it’s better then both of them.

I think I’ll leave this review here. Thank you very much for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

And I will see you all tomorrow

Beauty Tips For a Beginner

Hello! It’s Lau and today I want to just give some advice for someone who doesn’t know a lot about makeup, like what to do with their brows? What products are good for beginners?

Let’s just get started.

When getting into makeup it’s exciting but also a bit of a nightmare, there’s so much to choose and so much to learn.

Here are my tips and answering some questions:

1. I’ve never touched my brows, how do I shape them? You can do either one of two things, let someone else do it OR do it yourself. With someone else, you can tell them what you want but with yourself, you need have a plan..fill in your eyebrow shape with an eyebrow pencil and then just tweeze the stray brow hairs.

2. How do I know what shade of foundation matches me? I’ve always found this a little difficult but use a tester (if they have it). If they don’t, you might just have to eyeball it. However, consider your undertone. For example, don’t buy a pink undertoned foundation if you have yellow undertones. To find out what undertone you have, just google it.

3. What products should I use if I’m a beginner? I would get: concealer, powder, bronzer, a light coloured eyeshadow, mascara, eyebrow gel, lipbalm or lipgloss.

4. How do I get my winged eyeliner even? That’s quite difficult, but very do-able. Do short strokes, and maybe don’t do a big wing. Try aligning the end of your eyebrow to your eyeliner.

5. Do I need to prep my skin for makeup? You don’t need to but it does help out the application of makeup a little bit. It goes on better.

That’s all for this post. I hope I helped you out in some form or another.

Thank you all for reading and I’ll see you all soon.
