Hey guys
Sooo I was lucky enough to go to IMATS. I had never been before so didn’t really know what to expect but I was so happily surprised. It was much bigger than expected and it had many different make up stands where you could buy make up at discounted prices. At most of the stalls there were lessons/talks/showings which was amazing to see! I think my favourite part of the day was meeting Louise Young and watching her apply make up and talk us through the process. She is so down to earth and such a nice lady, I felt very honoured to have met her. I also watched a prosthetic cut be done and I found that amazing. I think I will buy the kit later this year as I am looking into going in to that part of the make up industry.
Not only did I watch but I bought...I bought so much lol in the end Gaelle (the Makeup Fairy) had to restrain me lol!
So this post is to show you what I bought x

From MAC I bought these 5 eye shadow colours; Chrome Yellow, Tempting, Amber Lights, Cranberry, Soot.
I really wanted a bright yellow and this is perfect and I brought the Amber Lights because it has my name in it lol but actually it is a beautiful goldish, orangey colour and Cranberry is just lovely and I couldn’t resist!
Then I found the Louise Young counter and it was the best part of my day, meeting Louise Young was the highlight of my day!

This is me and Louise x
 At the Louise Young stand is where I did my credit card damage, but I just loved everything!
I have wanted the ‘Louise Young Essential Palette’ for nearly a year now and finally I bought it! The colours are fabulous and essential for every working Make up artist. The colours in the palette are sooo useful you could make EVERY brow colour from it. The terracotta colour is just phenomenal and I think I will use it a lot. Louise said it is best used on darker skin tones.

from left to right = Ting, Maowi, Pom Pom, Black bear, Sislet.
I brought 3 LY brushes which are:

left to right = Ly34, Ly38A, Ly25
Can’t wait to use that big fat foundation brush, I’ll probably be able to do my foundation in about 4 seconds with it lol x
I also bought 3 more brushes, this time I bought them at ‘Crown’.

From left to right = the 1st one doesn’t have a name, C170-2, C217 Bent Liner
All I can say is that I can’t wait til next year as now I’m an IMATS ADDICT!
Love Amber x

Hey guys
Sooo this is the 3rd part in the Sex and the City eylure review and today I reviewed the ‘SAMANTHA’ lashes.
I love Samantha in the show she’s so overly confident doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her and more than that she is beautiful, stylish and SEXY- just like her Lashes. These Lashes are so over the top that they work! They are very bold and I would only ever wear them if I was going out for dinner or clubbing. They are so light weight on the eye it feels like I’m not wearing anything which is surprising as they look heavy. When I put them on they looked very fluttery in the mirror which I liked but I know some people won’t like that look.

They have a thick seam but they were easy to put on, whereas the ‘Miranda’ lashes had a thick seam at one end and not the other which made it really difficult for me to apply. The Samantha lashes were thick seamed all along and it made it easy. These lashes are the perfect size for my eye so I love that as I hate cutting lashes down. I do like these lashes a lot and can’t wait for a night out because these are the lashes I think I would choose...However I have not tried the ‘Carrie’ Eylure lashes yet so my mind may change!
The glue that comes with all the eylure lashes is really great and I always use it.  It sticks the lash down perfectly and it keeps the lash on for a good long time, when taking the lash off the glue does not irritate the skin at all. Out of a score of 10 I would give these lashes a 10! I could not find anything wrong with them!  Definitely go and have a try of these lashes and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Love Amber x
