An afternoon of Makeup Gurus

Beauty; Guru;

I am sure I am not alone here - if I am lucky enough to have a Saturday at home, when the kids are busy with their activities and the hubby is away.   When the rain is lashing down outside I love to snuggle up in bed at 3 o'clock with a cup of tea, packet of chocolate digestives and my laptop.
  I love to chill out and watch some of my favourite 'makeup guru' videos.     I am a big fan of Pixiwoo and Wayne Goss too but my favourite lady to watch is Lisa Eldridge.  I love her videos and take a lot of my day-to-day make up inspiration from her.

Lisa's videos are very well presented and her tutorials are very well composed.   She demonstrates different techniques and tips brilliantly.  I really like the fact that she uses an array of different products, not focussing on just high end brands all the time but showing us that the more affordable High Street products work lovely also.   

The only downside to this weekend hobby is the online shopping that usually comes along with it.  I sit with my notepad jotting down new products that Lisa suggests -  my bank balance and hubby do not thank me for it, though my dressing table does ;-)

I have a huge makeup brush obsession and just through this recent video alone (link), my brush lust list has grown massively:

(Since originally writing this post, I have realised I will never be buying the Suqqu Face Brush! £168)

Suqqu face brush
Sue Devitt powder brush
Mac 129
N0.7 Concealer
Shu Uemura No.10
Kevyn Aucoin concealer brush
Paula Dorf: sheer crease, eye contour, smoke lid and eye blender brush
MAC 217
Daniel Sandler blending brush
Jemma Kidd deepen brush
Laura Mercier smokey eyeliner brush

How do you spend your 'me time'?
