THE MAKEUP BRUSH SET EVERY GIRL NEEDS

This post is sponsored by and in collaboration with Gamiss. All opinions are my own.

I love makeup. I know, shocker right? Uh no, not really. I've talked about beauty multiple times on my blog, and even have created a Youtube channel, and beauty blog completely dedicated to it. I'm no pro, and I usually stick to the same makeup routine, but I love everything there is about makeup. I love being creative, I love how it makes me feel and I love me some good makeup tools.

In high school, back before any of us had the beautiful realm of Youtube and makeup tutorials, everyone applied makeup with their fingers, and cheap applicators that were sold with eyeshadows. You know the ones I'm talking about, foamy, looked-more-like-a-q-tip-then-for-applying-makeup applicators. It wasn't until university that I bought my first set of makeup brushes (Real Techniques all the way baby!), and I've never looked back! Proper makeup tools make ALL the difference to makeup application!

With all this being said, another thing about me that will not be a surprise if you're a frequent reader is that I don't like spending a lot of money on things when I can find cheaper options. So when Real Techniques came out with their bold metal brush collection I immediately thought: "Drool!!!!!" and then I saw the price tag and was like: "no."

Now you're probably thinking: "Uh Bekah, these are the bold metal brushes." When in reality, they're not. Let me preface this by saying that I do not in anyway condone buying fake, knock off cosmetics since you literally have no idea what ingredients are in that shtuff. However, knock-off makeup brushes, I can't get enough of! First off, they aren't an exact replica. Second the quality doesn't even compare to the original (these are plastic not metal). I've ordered quite a few knock off makeup brushes from eBay over the past year, and I'm always impressed. Again, the quality of the handles are just going to be bleh, but the softness of the bristles are AMAZING!!!!!!

All this to say, if you are looking for a set of makeup brushes that has a brush for everything, and don't want to break the bank, then order these NOW! The price is unbeatable and I've been using them every single day!

We've been in our new place for almost 3 weeks now and I fall more and more in love with it everyday! The past month has been an absolute whirlwind of packing and moving and unpacking. Luckily we didn't have too much stuff, since we did a lot of downsizing while we were packing, so it wasn't a hectic move. It only took us about a few days to get the furniture built, and everything unpacked and organized. I hate living out of boxes so we worked like crazy to get everything set up.

It's been absolutely adorable watching Calvin explore and become familiar with the new space. Let's just say he adjusted way better than our cat did. Poor thing hid behind the upstairs toilet for a whole day. He's been taking 3 hour naps ever since we moved in because all the ups and downs on the stairs. We were a little worried at first, since he wasn't fully comfortable with going down stairs yet, but by the third day he got it all figured out. Now we don't have a mini heart attack every time he heads towards a staircase.

I have quite a few plans for some upcoming posts, since I've missed my little space on the inter web! Thanks again for your continued interest and support! ;)
