Eyebrows | Mac Omega Eyeshadow Review

I really hate my eyebrows.
What ever I do with them I'm never happy and can never get them to look even! I've been growing them since christmas and they are thicker than they were but I just find one is much more curved than the other.. does anyone else find this with their eyebrows??
I've been using this in conjunction with my Clinique fine liner brow pencil which I also really love and they work really well together. Its a nice soft matte brown which is perfect for my light mousey brown eyebrows. I love that this doesn't have a red/orange tinge to it which I find with most 'light brown' colours - I'm looking at you Rimmel eyebrow pencil!
If I have enough time then I try to even out my shape with an angled brush if not then I run some through with an eyebrow comb and it just darkens them up a little. I have to fill in the bottom of my eyebrow more as this area is a little more sparse. I find that this is quite a versatile colour, its quite a light brown but it is very buildable which is nice if you prefer a more dramatic brow.

Top 5 Moisturisers for Dry / Sensitive / Irritated Skin

Hey Lovelies, 

So, I have tried tones and tones of different moistuisers, lotions & oils to soothe my dry sensitive eczema prone skin and these are the ones that I find really help to get my skin back to normal .. 

Aveeno Moisturising Creamy Oil
Hate that sticky greasy feeling? Then this is for you! This is the lightest of the bunch but really soothes irritated skin. I find that this isn't quite enough moisture when my skin is superly dry but its lovely when the weather is warmer. It sinks in immediately and leaves you feeling so smooth. I like to use this one if my skin is more on the normal side.

Aveeno Cream
This is so silky and soft and really nourishes your skin. Its a medium consistency but sinks in pretty quickly considering!  I sometimes use this on my face if its feeling especially dry and it works nicely. Its thicker than the moisturising creamy oil but it isn't too heavy. 

Curel Itch Defense Lotion
This stuff is amazing for dry, rough skin. If my eczema is playing up this is what I opt for. It has a very thick consistency and it does leave a slight layer on your skin but it really does get rid of any dry flakeyness. This is not the best for warmer weather as it can feel a bit clammy but if you want a very moisturising lotion then this is perfect! I use this after a shower before bed and by the next morning 80% of the dryness has improved. I find this too heavy for when my skin is more on the normal side.

The Body Shop Aloe Vera Body Butter
This is the thickest cream of the bunch and it does leave a layer on your skin so if you don't like that feeling then this isn't for you. 

Khiels Creme De Corps Body Lotion
If you're not on a budget then this lotion is a lovely treat for dry skin. It has quite a light - medium consistency  but sinks in almost immediately. It leaves your skin feeling so so soft!
