My Christmas Makeup and ffh's new badge!


I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! What was your favourite presents? :D
Its been pretty busy over here, we've been going to the hospital with M for her radio therapy sessions which is obviously not an enjoyable thing, but its making her better so that's good :)

I have gotten lots over products over the holiday which I will be uploading to here and lots of exciting things coming up too! I have now got a mini tripod so I can film nail art tutorials which I will be uploading to my YouTube channel - I have changed the channels name from my name to a nail art one so its easier to find :) please subscribe to it :) I will also be doing special effects makeup tutorials and looks and posting pictures on here and tutorials over there! :D

I received this present parcel from Treasure House Of Makeup who supply Mehron UK makeup and special effects makeup too. If you've read my previous posts I always review the products right down to the packaging, I think if that is presented nicely then the company has spent a little extra time to make you feel special :) Some companies use little organza bags for jewellery, little gift boxes, some put their product in a fancy metallic parcel bag and I've ad some which have just come in a plain parcel bag and the products are loose inside - Not good as sometimes the product breaks and to be honest its just boring. 
Treasure House Of Makeup sent me this beaut of a parcel in a bigger box with all what looks like polystyrene wotsits to keep the parcel inside nice and safe. The parcel its self is a box with a lovely covering and a little note from them too :D Mehron, as you might already know - is a professional stage makeup company. This means their products are SERIOUS. I mean people would wear this stuff when they're doing a Broadway show or an America's Next Top Model Photo shoot, so by celebrities!

I received four pots of precious gem powders. These were in Black Onyx, Amethyst, Topaz and Opal. They are powders made with soft silky powder which can have many uses. It can be applied from head to toe for any occasion. You can add a shimmer to your skin for parties, dinners of look faboo at professional performances etc. There are 13 colours in total which you can choose from and are based on birthstone colours. The fist thing I noticed with these powders is that they all sparkle like mad, the opal has a metallic look which almost changes from white to baby pink depending on how you look at it. You only need to use a little bit of these as they are highly pigmented. I have read some reviews saying they are way to pigmented, but I think the main point is that a little goes a long way. Also the drop cloth technique should be used when applying as eye shadow as the sparkles get everywhere aha :P
Mac do a similar product to this which costs £17 each, I'm not brand mad so I don't particularly care about getting the the designer brands, I'll use whats good and works for me. The Mac range is known to be good quality however the price is obviously expensive. They do have more colours to choose from if you want to build your collection, but I would much rather get Mehron's because the quality is soo good, it's used by professionals (so is MAC) but I find that Mehron works well with my skin.
These cost £6.40 each and you can get them here

I have done a colour swatch above going from left - right: Black onyx, Amethyst, Opal, Topaz.
As you can see, the colour is very intense in the centre where I've applied more, and lighter around the edges where I've used less.

I used the Topaz powder on the inner half of my eye and then used the Amethyst on the outer half of my eye. As you can see, I should have used the drop cloth technique as the sparkles just go everywhere :)  
I blended the colours in and then I used an eye liner and a brush from Beauties Factory to do the eye liner. Finishing off the look with some Rimmel London Wild Mega Volume Mascara. You can get the brush set here for only £9.99 and the eye liner here for £5.99!... Can anyone tell me what the brush is on the top second from the right?

I usually have a makeup artist do my makeup for photoshoots and catwalks so I am developing my skills of doing my own makeup.

As you may of seen already FashionFixhunter's new Badge was thanks to Treasure House Of Makeup. The badge is at the top left of the blog, if you haven't saw - 
I am wearing the eye makeup which I just shown you. I'm also wearing the Velvet Finish Primer Serum - I tend to get really dry skin from exma on my nose so I moisturize and then use a primer, although sometimes that's not even good enough. 
I've tried lots of different brands, of moisturizers and primers and most are just no use to me. This primer is super thick compared to others I've tried and it gives a super smooth base for the foundation. I only wear a little of tinted serum on my nose and chin because they are slightly pinker than the rest of my face, my skin is alright apart from that :) You can get that here for £18.23
I applied a little bit of the Glosstone 'Red Kiss' which I was a little weary about as I never really wear red lipstick or gloss, I'm not that brave aha :P
Actually, I quite liked it - it was smooth and wasn't sticky what so ever yet it looked glossy and healthy. You can get this here for £6.02.

There will be more makeup posts coming up featuring Mehron products, including tutorials, moodboards/pinboards, trends and get the celeb look, and also Special Effects Tutorials!! I will be using these products incorporated with special effects to create some awesome looks you can follow and do yourself :) This post was basically just to introduce you to the Mehron brand and Treasure House Of Makeup and show you the blogs new badge :D

  3. In answer to your question is there is a bright side of the circle and the other lens is opaque (ie when hardly notice the difference between both sides) on the bright side. must be convex when you want to got to place on your eye. Very nice pigments.
