Blending like a Professional

Up until recently I'd always been a makeup brush girl, I'd been put off sponges since I was younger and first started out with makeup when I used to use those round foam sponges that spread foundation round my face. I tried out my first decent sponge two years ago and since then I've never looked back.  I love to use sponges to finish off my foundation, making sure it's buffed in and I find now that the best way to blend in my concealer is with a sponge.

I liked the idea of a smaller sponge, one that would be perfect to blend in my under eye concealer without me having to squish a big sponge to the size where it would fit. Here the pink mini sponge comes into it's element. It's the perfect size to blend in concealer under the eyes and the tear drop shape is perfect for using either end.

The blue sponge is quite an odd shape, pointed at one end and flat on the other, it's easy to hold and I use both ends in different ways. The flat side I use to buff foundation in and the pointed side is good for getting the harder to reach areas like the sides of my nose and under my eyes. I love the texture of this sponge, it's quite smooth and soft so it feels really nice on the skin.

I know with sponges they're meant to be used when damp but I've never got my head around that idea therefore I always use sponges when they're dry.

Barcelona Part Two

There were so many cute little shops that were selling the most delicious looking food. This was a little chocolate shop that we passed, it took all my effort not to buy anything and just take pictures of the food!

A couple of weeks ago I went to Barcelona with a few friends, here are some of the photos that I took which I thought you might like to have a look at. I'm looking over them now and wishing I was back there!!!
