Finally a break...

Today was my last day of work for 2 whole weeks.  In the next 2 weeks I plan to spend a bit of time getting this blog up to date and writing a few things, because I have more time now I will of course be wearing  more makeup, and probably not quite as work acceptable colours.... For the next few weeks I plan to really get into some of the samples I have, I've got a few pigment samples from a few "Indie" brands and I'm looking forward to trying them and sharing my journey on here. 
I love "Indie" makeup, its a whole other world of colour and creativity.  More often than not they offer samples that are super cheap, the postage is usually VERY reasonable and obviously they mail internationally, all of this means its a great way of trying out a brand/colour and if you love it you can buy a full size jar, some companies even offer you the discount of your sample when you do this.  Its excellent incentive to support the little guys, and remember, some of my most loved brands such as Lime Crime and Sugarpill were one 'the little guys' and now are pretty well known and giving bigger brands a run for their money, not only that, both these brands AND the others I plan to showcase put real emphasis on colour and originality, if you're looking for the perfect neutrals for a 'natural' look, these are not your kind of makeup brands.
