So today is a mini post about some little cheap finds I found in my favourite drug store shop Superdrug.
I am always browsing through Superdrug, and this time me and my best friend Vicky found some lovely little items that drew our eye, and then led us to draw on our eyes after purchasing. So I thought I would share them with you.
1. Beauty uk - Eye liner and shadow Pencil
The first item is something that I decided that morning that I was missing from my collection. After finding an obsessive love in High School with Kohl eye liner and over doing it, so much so that my high school photos made me look like a crying mime, I decided to stay far away from it. However, these days, I find that I love doing smokey eyes more than natural, so opted to find one.
This item was £1...yes you heard me right, and I have to admit that the black eye liner has become part of my look, and is here to stay. All I do is apply a thin line below my water line, and smudge it in with the eye shadow of choice that day and I love it.
The white eye shadow is something I chose to use as a base for my eye shadow looks. You can of course get a combination of colours that you love, that this pencil can come with a rose gold colour in which I was tempted to get as well!
2. Beauty UK - Eye Shadow and Eye liner collection No.2
This palette is a god send. The colours are vibrant and very pigmented, and I have fallen in love with the burnt orange shade that comes in this kit, and I am wearing it every day. All of the shadows can create a very sun kissed, bronze goddess look which I am wearing more and more these days - trying to change the weather one eye at a time.
The liners aren't as pigmented but I love using them to blend in on my lash line before applying false lashes, and yes. Once again, this beauty is £1.
3. Beauty UK - Baked blush No.2
Now I will fully admit that I purchased this item for the packaging as it is an adorable little box, with a perfect mirror. This is the perfect colour, for just a hint of pink, maybe for those searching for a more natural look, or if you are new to make-up. As with work, I can often not be bothered to do a full face of make-up, this blush is perfect to add a quick subtle hint of colour, although it will not last through out the day, so I often top it up around 2 in the afternoon, which for a £1 you cannot argue with.
4. B. Groomed - Eyebrow Kit
This kit isn't a £1, but definitely worth the £5.19 price tag, as trust me. This is the most natural colour for eyebrows you will find. I am using the colour 052, which resembles my natural mousey brown colour, and seems to fit everyone with a brown shade that has tried it. The colour is super natural and waxy, and makes your brows look like they are naturally thick and luscious.
As I have a very lovely boyfriend who sits patiently when I often talk to about my hatred for eyebrows, was very impressed when I showed him one eyebrow filled in with this product, and one not. Even as a make-up novice, he was super impressed with how natural it looked.
I would whole heartedly recommend this product, for those of you like me, who hates the thick block most brow products can cause, and the hefty price label some items that cause natural brows can cost.
So there you have it, my mini Superdrug Haul with mini reviews! Let me know if you have used any of these, and what you would recommend!

So! In case you are wondering - that is me above; and no, I'm not losing my mind.
Last night, me and my best friend Vicky, decided to do some make-up transformations (As you do when you are bored on a girls night), and instead of doing normal make-up looks, we decided to change genders and age.
I stumbled upon this idea when watching a great video from one of my favourite YouTubers - Kat Sketch - where she changed gender, and age. So I thought, hey! It looked fun, so why the hell not?
It ended up in some pretty funny results so I thought I would share it with you!
So this is the first transformation - where I turned myself into a male and Vicky (Scared by the outcome of whether she would be a more attractive male than female) turned herself into "Jack's" trashy girlfriend, inspired by "What not to wear your make-up like in high school" although we all know someone who did.
For some reason, I am ridiculously attracted to myself, and I remind myself of a K-Pop band member and Vicky reminds me of when I discovered make-up and thought. They wouldn't make a foundation colour that didn't naturally match right? Wait... is orange not better?
Of course Vicky's look was paired with the obvious trademark messy bun, trout pout, and crop top that I am seeing way too many of these days! Although looking through my instagram photos I can see that I wear them myself...Hey! If it works it works!
My next transformation was to an old lady, and my god I was shocked by the results. I clearly do not age well, and remind my friends of a grumpy old school teacher.
When you pair me and Vicky together, we look like the old birds on a night out - with Vicky reminding me of a granny (Or a GILF if you will) who is piling on the make-up to pretend she isn't as old as she is.
I will however admit that taking it off was super fun, and seeing me both young and old was rather terrifying.
This was such fun to do, and other than the horror on my boyfriend's face when he refused to kiss the crazy old lady and the male that appeared around the corner in the front room, the laughter that came screaming through mine and Vicky's mouth when we looked up from our mirrors to look at each other really made it a wonderful night.
So! I would love to see any of your transformations, and let me know if you would like to see how I "Transformed".
