This week on my makeup desk are my favourite makeup product, highlighters.  I love changing up my makeup look with different highlighters techniques. Who knew there was so may different ways to highlight. I certainly didn’t when I was a beginner. Like most makeup lovers, I am obsessed with highlighters. Highlighters are so on trend at the moment and I can’t see them leaving us anytime soon. If you only ever used the traditional powder highlight fear no more I am here to teach you ways to use different highlighters. View Post

I’m back and starting the year with what is in my travel makeup bag. First of all I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you to each and everyone of you for all the support through out 2016 on mymakeupdesk. I have just got back from New Zealand. Where I went to spend time with my family and loved ones. I still haven’t unpacked my makeup bag, been waiting until I write this post so I can share with you what I took. I love reading these types of posts as I feel like what you take travelling you know you can rely on and is a favourite. My advice for travelling is to choose items that can be easily replaced incase they get damaged or lost. View Post
