Beauty Blitz: Experimenting with Make-up

 Vanity by Simple Tess

I've decided I really want to experiment more with my make-up and try out new products, colours and techniques. I bought a whole new brush set over a year ago and haven't used any of them yet (I'm also confused as to what half of them are for) and my liquid eyeliner technique makes me look more panda than chic. I feel like I've been stuck in a make-up rut for the past few years, I've had the same look and have been using the same products for a long time so now is the time for a change!

I have really sensitive skin when it comes to make-up and I have to be careful what products I use as often they make me break out or even worse go red and swell which isn't a good look. So I've been doing research on a few products and this week I took the plunge and decided to go out and buy a few new things to try out.

1. Dior - Diorshow Mascara
2. Lancome - Flash Retouche
3. Dior - Mascara Ultimeyes
4. MAC - Viva Glam Gaga
5. Benefit - Lemon Aid
6. Figs & Rouge - Geranium Balm

Overall I'm very pleased with all these products and instead of writing a long boring review on them for you to read I thought I would make a short video showing me trying a few of them out so you can judge for yourself how effective they are.
