    Hi everyone! I'm Sirvinya, aka Becky. I'm 25 and sadly, I appear to be single again. I'll be moving soon.

    I have loved make up for many years but only recently have I really learnt how to use it properly. My first ever make up item was a Rimmel eye shadow duo containing 2 shades of shimmery brown. I had absolutely no idea how to use them properly! I just put on the light all over with some of the dark near my lashes. For a while that's all I used but I slowly bought new make up.

    A few years later I got rid of everything. I didn't wear any for a long time. Then I decided I loved make up too much and started again. That was about 3 years ago!

    Now, I'm really into Mineral make up. I find the pigmentation and colour range is far superior to "regular" brands. I still love the MAC, Stila, Milani, etc that I have but I reach for my minerals much more often. Not to mention that they are much cheaper! I'm always looking for new things to try. I was introduced by someone I know online who told me that if I liked MAC pigments then I'd love to try these minerals. She was right and now I'm an addict! I have a few favourite brands now.

    Other than make up I'm really into writing, having recently begun journalling again. I am attempting to write every day which is proving to be harder than I thought. It's a really enjoyable experience, I'm thinking about what's going on around me much more and I am constantly thinking of things to write down.

    I also love to read! Tolkien is my absolute favourite author. I love all his works and love the world of Middle Earth. At the moment I am in the middle of reading through the series of 12 books of the notes he wrote. My user name is an Elvish word Tolkien thought of as a possible name for a river in "Lord of the Rings". I thought it was a beautiful word.

    I have begun to teach myself how to make clothes after being envious of all the fantastic things I had seen made on crafting websites! It's slow going but I am enjoying it so far. I have so much to learn still but the things I have made have actually been wearable! I've built up a decent fabric stash :) I could go up to my den and make an entire wardrobe without having to buy any new fabric!

    Thankyou for reading and I hope to see you all on the forums!

    So much! More mineral pigments as always: Fyrinnae, Sweetscents, Mad Minerals, Lily Lolo. Any of those. I love Milani as well, it's not sold in the UK so I rely on swaps for my stash. MAC is another favourite. I could walk into a MAC store and easily spend £200. There's always plenty I like the look of.

    Drugstore liquid liner that stays on?

    Superdrug is the best place to find them, but some Boots have Barry M as well.

    Why does brown eyeshadow look awful on me?

    You need cool toned browns. I'm the same, red toned browns look absolutely awful on me. Try taupes as well, they suit me much better than straight brown shades.

    Drugstore liquid liner that stays on?

    Barry M!!! They're about £6. Last all day on me. And they've got some fab colours (along with black and brown).

    Customer Service

    The best I've had is from Sweetscents and Fyrinnae. I put up a quick video asking if anyone had something Fyrinnae had long d/c'd as it was a hg item for me. Fyrinnae had a look though their records, found I had ordered it previously (my ordering and youtube emails are nothing alike) and emailed me to say they had some left and I could buy it really cheaply if I took the lot. Very happy I was. I haven't had any really bad ones.
