🕺🏻GRAPHIC LINERS 🎨
Hello! Today I’m bringing out my two cents and telling you guys about these awesome water activated liners I discovered! They’re from Glisten Cosmetics and they were very easy and forgiving to work with. The only downside is they’re not waterproof :( Also, just tried the Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Foundation Flawless Long-Lasting Coverage SPF15 and it is a DREAM. I have dry skin and this gave me enough glow and matte-ness in the areas that matter 🥳 MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Bronzer used this bronzer for awhile, not splotchy or muddy. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist brings EVERYTHING back to life w/out looking sweaty ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Blush Trio got this at TJmaxx awhile back for cheap. Amazing product and perfect amount of pigment Violet Voss - Flamingo PRO Eyeshadow Palette my tried and true 💖

Before and After HALLOWEEN Skincare Tips 🎃💀👻
I love Halloween with the costumes, the treats, and scary movies. What's not to love. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in the fun we can forget about our activities of daily living. So I just wanted to give you guys some tips on how to get through today!!! Before putting on your Halloween makeup remember to exfoliate, hydrate and prime your skin. Healthy nourished skin is the best base for any makeup routine. You can exfoliate and hydrate with one of my favorite masks dear, klairs - Youthful Glow Sugar Mask if you want a hydrating primer my go to is BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer After dancing the night away in layers of makeup or walking the neighborhood with a scary mask on your face you will need to double cleanse. The best way to break down that makeup and dirt is with an oil cleanser. My favorites are BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Nourishing and I just tried FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm omg this stuff really breaks down makeup. Then follow up with a gel cleanser to really get in your pores and get the dirt out. I personally like NATURIUM - Mixed Greens Nutrient-Rich Cleanser they are launching a Niacinamide gel cleanser Nov 1 I'm excited to try it. After cleansing you can rehydrate your skin with a nourishing mask like I'm from - Honey Mask or TONYMOLY - I'm Real Aloe Mask Sheet both masks keep my skin plump and hydrated. Throw in a hydrating essence NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% or hydrating toner like I'm from - Rice Toner Skip the actives and finish with a hydrating moisturizer like FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer Don't forget to hydrate. Water helps flush out those toxins, the candy and/or the alcohol. 😜 Water will help give your skin that healthy glow!!! If the makeup has left your skin irritated you can try adding some serums like Krave - Great Barrier Relief or epicuren DISCOVERY - Aloe Vera Calming Gel to your routine both calm irritated skin. The Krave serum will help soothe your skin while repairing your skins barrier. The Epicuren gel has green tea and camomile which a great anti inflammatory agents. What are your Halloween plans?? Are you still dressing up are you still participating in Halloween activities?? Hope these tips help!!!

My Skin Saviours for Changing Seasons
The season change is a fussy thing to deal with: your skin will be sensitive, or maybe dull and dehydrated. Dead skin could make it worse if you don't dare to use scrub or acid products. I have got combo/oily skin, and when it comes to the end of winter and summer, my face becomes easily irritated with flushing and tingling feeling. I did some research online and discovered these products suitable for the crazy seasonal change. Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray After cleansing, I use this spray for instant hydration. I towel dry my face and spray this mist evenly on my face and neck. The mist is soothing, and it has no fragrance or additives, just thermal spring water. I leave it on my face for a minute and wipe it away, and this prepares for my next step. NIOD - Modulating Glucosides I like this product pretty much for its powerful calming effect on redness and uncomfy feelings. This emulsion contains glucosides, peptides, and plant extracts to minimize skin sensitivity in all situations. It has a yellowish color and is easy to smooth on the skin, but the smell is a bit strange though I don't hate. Large squalene provides a layer of protection and moisturization; it feels a bit oily but absorbs quickly and doesn't cause acne as well. I love this, and this is my second bottle so far. BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer After the emulsion, I put this face balm on to provide total hydration. When my face is healthy enough to put on foundation, I use it as a moisturizing primer. The shea butter in it can nourish the skin without any irritation while the vitamin c and vitamin e as antioxidants give skin a strong shield to environmental stress. It smells like fresh citrus, really refreshing and pleasant. A little goes a long way; I put a pea size of it on my finger and gently slide on my face to finish this routine—also, another non-comedogenic product I like. Going to say that it is super annoying to stop everything else from fighting sensitivity or other unexpected guests, but with enough preparation, this won't be a big issue anymore.
Ceramides and pre-makeup face base
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base I discovered this product from the many Instagram stories of Lorna Luxe, she’s an English beauty and style content creator who loves to do get-ready-with-me type of Instagram stories on a daily basis. She featured Bobbi Brown face base on her stories so I swiped up to know how much it is, then I did a bit of research about the product. It is expensive for a primer but it did not take me long to decide that I needed this product in my life, so I bought it and never did I once feel regret about purchasing this cream. Here’s why. My skin is dry combination; most of the time it’s dry, leaving my cheeks and my forehead feeling tight. I particularly hate it when I have to apply foundation and my skin is just not feeling it. When I tried on this product, it directly moisturized my face, and plus, I love the scent. It smells a bit lemony and fresh, which I love. I try to stay away from products with fragrance cause I have sensitive skin but this doesn’t really give me redness or any sort of inflammation. The product goes on smooth, and glides easily even on the driest areas of my skin, which is my chin and forehead. I like the feeling of my foundation against my skin after every use of this luxurious primer. I won’t even call it just a primer cause it feels like a moisturizer for me that lets all the makeup products glide on very easily and seamlessly on your face. I love love love this product, and even if it is expensive, it’s something that I will continue buying. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum While I’m not so into ceramides and anti-aging products, especially when they come in capsule form that I have to tear apart so I can put the product on my face, I took a flyer on this one. And mind you, it’s a very very expensive try. I think, though, that the capsule form is ideal for traveling. I discovered it through my sister, who, 4 years younger than me, is such an advocate of anti-aging products. So when she went out of the country early this year, I asked her to buy me a bottle at the airport cause I can’t justify the post-tax price tag of this product. I’ve been using it for months now but I admit, I don’t use it on a daily basis cause I like to have a rotation of my skincare products in my routine. I particularly noticed the dark circles under my eyes vanishing little by little. I don’t have eye bags but I tend to have dark undereye circles that become especially dark when I don’t get enough sleep or when I eat too much chocolates and chips. A week after using this, I noticed that the skin around my eyes appeared brighter so that made me happy knowing I didn’t waste my money on this product. My skin looked and felt plumper as well. I think it was the ceramides working their magic. I like to use it before my moisturizer, kind of like a serum. It glides on smoothly and does a good job of moisturizing and plumping my skin. Will I purchase again? If someone can buy for me duty-free, it’s definitely a yes!

2 Step Routine - Flawless skin!
Hi all!! I recently have been buying and testing out so much new makeup to find amazing makeup although there have been some hits and misses that I will be posting soon so keep an eye out for them! But I have found these 2 lovely products which work really well together! First step: Primer The first step is the laura mercier - Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer which is an amazing silicone free primer that really creates a soothing, hydrating base to prep the foundation and all other makeup products which allows the makeup to look non-cakey and drying. The best part about this primer is that you can use it just on its own for a glowy base also! I got mine in a sample tube (25ml) and I will definitely be repurchasing the full size when I’m finished. I have been testing out new primers as I have a wedding coming up which there will be so many photos taken so I want to have a really nice makeup look. I have also tried the BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer which I thought was my holy grail but now I’m torn between these 2! Both primers create such a great base for the makeup which is why I’m so stuck! I’m yet to decide which one I will use but I will keep an update. Second step: Foundation This foundation I have wanted to try since I was in High School but I could never afford or get my hands on it! So I was super excited to try it! The NARS - Sheer Glow Foundation met my expectations 100%! It’s literally looks like facetune! It doesn’t emphasise any texture or dryness which is a big factor for me choosing and rating a foundation. It’s buildable coverage so if you like medium-full coverage makeup this is perfect for you and you can choose which coverage you are feeling or what your skin needs. Results? These 2 have perfectly made a place in my makeup routine! By using them together I have glass skin and looks flawless more than any other products I have used - definitely a staple in spring! The primer and foundation used together makes my foundation last all day and I don’t notice any creasing. I 100% recommended you try these for a glass skin base. Thanks for reading loves! ☺️🌻

The tip to flawless, full coverage foundation!
When purchasing a primer and foundation order at Mecca Maxima, I wanted to have a full coverage but still a flawless, natural looking foundation. I decided to invest in some products that helped created my flawless base but still very full coverage - perfect for events and going out makeup! Prepping the skin. To prepare for my foundation, I prepped my skin starting out with a moisturiser I decided to use Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer which is perfect for a hydrating, dewy glow which will keep the makeup hydrated! I then primed with my BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer which is my newbie I have fallen in love with! It really sets a really good base for makeup to go on flawlessly. Foundation? The foundation I decided to buy is the MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation which I was really hesitant to buy since I have quite dry skin and this is quite a matte foundation but to make it work I mixed in one drop of trilogy - Certified Organic Rosehip Oil this allowed my foundation to be more dewy and took away the matte affect. I find this method is perfect because I can still use a great coverage foundation without the dry patches! Application? I first applied with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply the foundation on my skin which I used circular motions to buff the foundation into my skin flawlessly, after using two layers on my whole face, I then used a damp beauty blender which I used to press the foundation into my skin even more which allowed my makeup to be fully blended in! Coverage? The first layer of foundation built up to a nice medium coverage but with two layers my makeup was FULL coverage which I really love and no cakiness due to the moisturiser, primer and rosehip oil. Results? With the use of prepping the skin and mixing rosehip oil into my foundation, it created an amazing hydrated, flawless base which my concealer, powder, blush and bronzer applied beautifully! You don’t have to use the Mac foundation at all! You can try this with any foundation whether it’s drugstore or high end I really recommend testing out the Bobbi Brown Face Bace and adding rosehip oil to your foundation and using the techniques to see if it works as good for you! Thanks so much for reading, feel free to leave any Q’s 😊
