Rosy Brown Makeup Look

I am a big advocate of the monochrome makeup looks and rosy brown tones are some of my favourites to do this with. I definitely need to add a bit of rosiness into my skin but don’t like bright shades on my skin so rosy browns are very flattering on me. I picked out some of my favourites rosy tones for this look including Hourglass Diffused Bronze Light which is a stunning bronze tone on my skin, Nars Douceur has also been a long go-to neutral blush (I’m panning mine but there are a lot of alternatives out there) and the Tom Ford Sous Le Sable palette. Sous Le Sable is fantastic rosy palette that doesn’t pull too peachy on warm complexion like mine and it makes for a gorgeous matte look and these mattes are some of the easiest to work with in my collection.

Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category

Even though I love beauty, I often feel like my collection got a bit out of hand recently and I wish that I had much less variety in some of the categories. In turn, I thought it’d be fun to go through my collection and pick one product in each category that I would keep if I had to only choose one. Now I wanted to be quite free with the selection so I didn’t exclude limited edition products or only picked the products I’ve used the most in that category. I am however excluding past favourites that didn’t get re-purchased (yet) because I still have some self-restraint. Continue reading “Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category”

Updated Makeup Inventory – Category and Cost Analysis

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.

Rolling Project Pan Update #5

It’s no surprise that I have abandoned this blog for the last half a year while trying to figure out things in my life. Admittedly, the biggest reason why I stopped blogging was because I felt I was buying too much makeup and didn’t feel good about where my collection was going. But the truth is I love makeup and always finding myself coming back so here we are. I thought I’d start with a project pan update because while I pretty much stopped tracking all the products per se, I finally hit my goal on one very challenging product. I am also having a bit of an overhaul of the project so this will be a long post. Continue reading “Rolling Project Pan Update #5”

Fenty Hydrating Foundation in 100 Review + Comparison Swatches

This review is definitely coming really late especially given how excited I was for the Fenty Hydrating Foundation to launch but I wanted to thoroughly test this foundation before the review and admittedly I got a little bit distracted with the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish.
