NKD ( ) Waxing, Nottingham

I was kindly invited to an opening event at the new nkd ( ) waxing store on Pelham Street in Nottingham City Centre this evening. 
I took my flat mate with me and we were welcomed with a drink on arrival and a free treatment. We both opted for brow threading. Now, when I say I'm low maintenance on eyebrow hair management I mean I let them do what they like; this is because they are so blonde I assume the strays can't be seen. As I've since realised that light illuminates all my blonde hairs I thought this would be a good opportunity to get them sorted and I'm glad I did. Considering it was my first professional eyebrow threading experience I didn't do too badly with the pain and the therapist was super quick and very friendly. 
As an introductory offer the store is offering free mini treatments throughout April so you better be quick.
As well as waxing they offer tinting and lash extensions too. 
The shop has a really nice feel to it and the staff made the event a really nice experience so I highly recommend. 

(I need a new memory card for my camera so the quick snaps on my iPhone  were all I could manage)  


Getting Lippy

This is a lip combo I've been enjoying lately. I've been pairing it with a brown smokey eye and some light contouring on the skin. I use the pencil all over the lips as a base and put the lighter nude lipstick over the top to make a more natural colour as I find the Pure Zen lipstick on its own can look a little too light for my skin. KIKO is a brand that has had a store in Leeds for a little while now and I've noticed they're launching a store in the Victoria Centre in Nottingham (for you Nottingham dwellers). It's really affordable and has a huge range of products! 

Lip liner: KIKO Lip Pencil in 310.
Lipstick: MAC Pure Zen. 


Being Organised

I received these makeup organisers for Christmas from my mum (thanks mum). They're clear so you can see all your makeup, which is hopefully going to make me use items that I haven't bothered with for a while. It looks neat and stylish on any desk or dressing table and are available for a steal on good old Ebay!
