What Kylie Jenner uses | MAKEUP

Somehow over the past few months I seem to have been sucked into the Kylie Jenner fan club. I don't know what it is about her, but something is fascinating.

When Kylie posted some snap chats yesterday revealing her makeup routine I jumped at the chance to have a close look at what products she uses. Then I re-watched the snaps and noted them all down so I could tell you guys.

For her base she uses the Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done which is a cross between a primer, tinted moisturiser and sheer foundation. She uses this in conjunction with the Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation which is now available at Debenhams.

After her base is in place, Kylie does her brows. She starts by using the Anastasia brow wiz pencil in Caramel. Then follows with the Becca ultimate coverage concealer to neaten and brighten under the brow line. Then using some of the foundation from before, on a concealer brush she neatness the top line of her brows. Kylie sets her brows in place using the Anastasia brow gel.

She then conceals around her under eyes, nose a centre of her forehead using the Nars radiant creamy concealer which she blends in using a beauty blender. She then sets her face using Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder and Chanel Mat Lumière powder.

Kylie then uses some brown and black eye shadow to create a blended smokey eye look - she didn't share the brand on snap chat.

The ever popular Benefit Hoola is Kylie's bronzer of choice which she pairs with the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter. She gives her cheeks a healthy glow with the Sephora blush in 23 passionate.

Kylie curls her lashes and then uses a Lancôme mascara, I think it was the Définicils. She then mentioned using a seperate brown mascara on her lower lashes as it is more subtle - a trick she learnt from a makeup artist. For the waterline, she uses a Sephora brown jumbo waterproof eyeliner.

She finished off the look with her own brand lip liner in candy k and her brand new yet-to-be-released gloss in koko.

Which of these products will you be snapping off the shelf? My wish list has just got a lot longer!

Pandora rose collection

The Pandora moments bracelet with the rose gold clasp had been on my wish list for a while. This month I have been marking A level exam papers for an exam board to get some extra cash (and gain an insight of the exam for my teaching), so thought it was time to treat myself for my hard work.

I decided to order the bracelet from the online jeweller John Greed. The reason being that they do free shipping (Pandora website is only free on orders over £75), were offering 8% cash back on Quidco and included all the Pandora packaging, even the gift bag. The downside is the purchase failed to track on Quidco, so I have put in my claim and I'm hoping it goes through. 

I ordered it Monday evening and it arrived Wednesday, so the free delivery was super fast. It was only packed in a Jiffy bag, so I was quite relieved to see there was no damage to the box or gift bag. I'm quite surprised that they didn't pack something like that a bit better.

The bracelet itself looks great. The rose gold clasp really adds a little extra something and it complements my Olivia Burton watch perfectly. 

Now I am just trying to resist buying all the gorgeous charms I want in one go. I'm aiming to go for a theme of alternating silver and rose gold charms with some sparkly bits for good measure.

What charms would you recommend?
