What is Blepharitis 

Hello people 
Hope your all having a great day 

On my twitter account people have been asking me what blepharitis is so because of that I’m going to do a blog post on it I’m not saying i no all about it but what i do no i will share with you 
Here goes 

What is Blepharitis 

Blepharitis is inflammation of the rims of the eyelids, which causes them to become red and swollen. It is a common condition which can develop at any age but is more common in young children and people over 50. Most people experience repeated episodes followed by periods with no symptoms. It is not possible to catch blepharitis from someone else who has it.
How Blepharitis affects you 

The symptoms of blepharitis can include: burning, soreness or stinging in the eyes; crusty eyelashes and itchy eyelids. It can also cause lid cysts (chalazion). The cause of blepharitis is not known in most cases but, although it is not an infection, it can be caused by a reaction to the bacteria that live naturally on the eyelid skin. It is more common in skin conditions such as:
Seborrhoeic dermatitis, which causes an itchy rash on the skin and scalp (seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp is called dandruff)

Rosacea which causes the face to appear red and blotchy

Acne in teenager and young adults, which cases irritation and blockage of the glands in the centre of the face

Blepharitis is not usually serious, but can produce a lot of symptoms and can make people unable to wear contact lenses comfortably.
Many people with blepharitis also have dry eye condition where the eyes do not produce enough tears or dry out too quickly.
Serious complications, such as sight loss, are rare, particularly if recommended advice is followed.

Treatment 

Blepharitis is usually a long-term (chronic) condition, which means once it develops it can cause repeated episodes. 
There is no cure for blepharitis, but establishing a daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and any dryness can be treated with artificial tear drops. Lid cleaning often needs to be continued indefinitely to prevent recurrence.
More severe cases of blepharitis may require treatment with antibiotic ointment applied to the eyelids or, antibiotic drops for the eyes and, in a few cases, steroid eye drops.
Some patients benefit from antibiotics by mouth, particularly when the blepharitis is associated with a skin condition such as rosacea, These antibiotics are usually required for at least four to six weeks and may need to be continued for many months.
All that was the information i found very helpful when i found out i had it 
Hope it helps

Simple Eye Make-up Remover

Hello People

 

Its been a while and i cant say i havent missed you all its been a odd few months

A few days ago i lost my glasses couldn’t find them anywhere looked high and low no glasses to been (seen) HE HE HE HE HE.

So i had to make an appointment to see my optician where she gave me an eye test .

And i was so shocked to find out that she found out i have blepharitis which i must say i didn’t have a clue what that was .

so she explained Blepharitisa is a common condition where the edges of the eyelids (eyelid margins) become red and swollen (inflamed). Blepharitis can develop at any age, and symptoms can include: itchy, sore and red eyelids that stick together. crusty or greasy eyelashes. a burning, gritty sensation in your eyes.

This meant i had to change and start an eye routine day and night for the rest of my life  which entails an multi action eye wash systane eye drops hot compress and blephaclean wipes .plus i had to change what i clean my eye makeup off with .

So i went in to sainsburys while doing my shopping and picked up Simple eye makeup remover.

Here is where my review comes lol .

I just used simple eye makeup remover to take off todays makeup and wow two hard wipes and the makeup was gone i still cant believe it and it also didn’t hurt my eyes .

I think if your having trouble or your bored of your eye makeup remover you should try Simple its fab.

Make Up Revolution fabulousness!!!!!!!!!

Hey friends

Happy new year to you all I truly hope you all had a wonderful Christmas that’s if you celebrate it if not i still hope you had a fabulous break .

Also seeing the weather this week i hope when you go out you wrap up warm .

Let’s get on with the fun part the makeup 💄.

I cant say i have in the past got a lot from this brand i do have one or two eye palettes and a blush palette but that’s it .

But for Christmas my sister only went and got me a fabulous Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas Storage Chest”with loads of there beautiful products in and omg i cant believe i have waited this long to open it but i knew you guys would want to share the beauty bliss moment with me .

But i would like your help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m going to share with you what came in the box and what my first impressions are and then i want you guys to comment on the products you have tried from this brand and how they make you feel when wearing them and how they live up to ur expectations.

As I haven’t used this brand a lot before and love listening to other peoples views.But I have tried out few bits on this collection and put what i thing .

What we waiting for lets go !!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the first one i have pulled out is

Pro Go Brush Set


I haven’t had time to try these baby’s out yet but going by what i have tried from this brand they will be fabulous.

Eyeshadow Palette Matte (18) Eyeshadow Palette Shimmers (Night) Eyeshadow Palette Matte (Forecast)

This brand and eyeshadow palettes are so good, all of them have excellent dupes for more expensive brands, high pigmented and easy to blend. They are so affordable I cannot rate them high enough,


Blush Palette (Dream)

There a real bright & vibrant pink colours they makes a great contrast with a grey/black smoky eye it has a nice pigmentation to it with great staying power & goes on easy with a blusher brush.

HD Pro Brow Palette


This brow kit exceeded my expectations.  I was not expecting the shadows and wax shades to be so pigmented and the range of colours are lovely. The 2 highlighter shades are nice too however I wasn’t too keen on the wax highlighter.

Ultra Strobe Balm Palette


I’m yet to try and cant comment but i cant say how pretty they look and how I’m so excited to try

Aqua Priming Base


I find that it is really hydrating for my skin & helps with the application of my foundation!.. I use to pay loads at Mac but from now on I’m sticking too this baby

Make Up Fixing Spray


It is easy to use and definitely sets makeup and keeps it looking freshly applied for several hours. I highly recommend this fixing spray and as a bonus it comes in attractive packaging. It’s a must try

Ultra Strobe Cream


Tried this product out for a week, rather than repurchased MAC strobe cream and I was surprised. The product it’s self smells amazing, is so smooth and makes your skin incredibly soft and of corse it is also quite glowing on the skin. I’ve found I also like to blend it into my foundation too for a more dewy look. Overall the product is great and great value for money

Eye Primer
Lip Gloss set  (Euphoria /Amlification /Sheer )


I cant comment as I’m yet to try but once i do i will do a review x
Ok so that’s a wrap
Thank you so much for your support in 2016 and i look forward to another fabulous year with you

I have a YouTube channel if you fancy popping over and having a look and subscribing and liking
