I’m a big believer in treating yourself after a job well done. And in treating yourself in general, because a treat is something special and we all like to feel special from time to time.
9 months ago, my treats would have been food-based… a meal out, a fancy cupcake or a bottle of my favourite wine. Nowadays, my treats of choice are more likely to be splurges on my favourite beauty products.
“Honey” says Will. “Do you really need another [INSERT BEAUTY PRODUCT OF CHOICE]?”
‘Yes, yes I do!”
Real Techniques Make Up Brushes
Make-up brushes have always been a secret love of mine.
There’s something quite wonderful about opening a new make-up brush and using it for the first time. The smell of clean bristles, their delicious fluffiness and that tickly sensation of sweeping it across your face to see how it feels. Fast forward to a foundation caked make-up brush that desperately needs a wash. Eh, not so good.
I’ve been eyeing-up the Real Techniques make-up brushes for some time now. Not actually needing them, but oh so wanting them…
Real Techniques Core Collection + Stippling Brush
Weight loss reward! Ha, why didn’t I think of this before .
These brushes are just a small part of a fabulous collection from famous make-up artists and YouTubers Sam and Nic Chapman, better known as Pixiwoo. They have some brilliant make-up tutorials over on their YouTube channel, you should check them out!
And you know, after losing over 3 stone in weight… it actually feels kinda wonderful to spend time and treat myself on some pampering. I’ve been hiding away for way too long and this girl is ready to sparkle!
So, my friends, talk to me. What products do you like to treat yourself with for a job well done?
