Admittedly I’m not very adventurous when it comes to lip colours and would happily just wear a browny nude of sorts for the rest of my life. If you’ve followed me for a while, you might know that my all-time favourite browny nude is the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Barbara but because I’m trying to get through my lipstick in my project pan, I’ve decided not to repurchase it until I’m happy with my collection. That aside, I also have plenty of browny nude options left in my collection and I wanted to share my favourites with you in this post. Continue reading “The Browny Nude Lip Line Up”
I have definitely developed a bit of an obsession with bronzer buying ever since brands started coming out with more than two shades and this post is a proof of that. I figured it would be a good point of reference for anyone who might be looking for a bronzer/contour especially if you have a fair complexion like mine. For reference, I use shade 100 in the Fenty Hydrating Foundation and 0.1 in the Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation. I have yellow undertones so I like pinkier bronzers because yellow tones make me look sallow. For the purpose of this post, I decided to include any product in my collection that I use as a bronzer or contour and grouped them in three main categories so if it’s more of fair playing field.

I first posted my makeup inventory analysis last March but there have been a lot of changes in my collection since then which served as an excuse for me to spend a day playing with Tableau. For the most part, I’ll follow last year’s template to go through this but if you have any other ideas on how to make this more insightful, please let me know. I’m definitely into analytics and updating this inventory definitely helped me get a better overview of my collection and pinpoint some problem areas.

I haven’t done a favourite post in ages and actually I’m not sure because they are still some of my favourites to read and as someone who loves to make highlights list in my personal notebook, it’s actually fun to share it with others. Continue reading “Current Lifestyle Favourites”
I’ve taken a month break away from the blog that initially started because of the heatwave and then continued for the whole month mainly because I didn’t have time on the weekends (including a delightful trip to Manchester to see The Nico Project). The funny thing was that I had all my content planned but just couldn’t do the photos but I’ve been off for a week for my birthday and finally pulled myself together despite another London heatwave.
Now onto the actual post, I’ve always been one to have a couple of concealers but within the last couple of months, I went on a bit of a concealer craze trying to find my favourite one. I have quite sunken under eyes and on top of that a very translucent skin that picks up on any veins under there so I’ve slowly come to a conclusion that no concealer will fully counteract that and it’s very much about finding the one that will do the most and look the most flattering. I don’t particularly use concealer in other areas of my face at the moment but most of these will work for that purpose as well. For reference, my best foundation shade match is Smashbox Studio Skin in 0.1. Continue reading “Ranking Concealers For Fair Skin”
