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”
Today’s post is mostly inspired by the latest addition to my lipstick wardrobe in the form of the new Chanel Matte Lip Crayon in Hazelnut and while I might have originally been drawn to it because well, I love hazelnuts, it quickly became the cool nude I always looked for and could never find.

Now, I do like to kid myself into thinking I’m completely immune to marketing but what is better marketing than hyping up a product within the online beauty community. This list was interesting to put together because why I definitely research products before buying them, I have on occasions bought something only because I heard someone mention it multiple times even if I knew I probably won’t get that much use out of it. There is also a few brands that I generally consider to be hyped up and they definitely made up a bulk of this list. Continue reading “Thoughts on the Hyped Up Makeup in My Collection”
First up – apologies for missing out on last week’s post but I finally decided to map my domain and let’s just say, I got easily confused with some of it.
Now I generally don’t like to label my posts as for fair skin because frankly, I like my coloured makeup products contrasting with my skin tone but naturally when it comes to base makeup, I won’t be caught dead in the sun or self tan for that matter so matching for body tone is a must. As a general rule, I’d say I’m a pretty close match to MAC NC10 and I am generally the palest shade in brands that make pale shades but having said that, there are definitely people that are fairer than me. My body and neck has a slight pale yellow under tone and my face is a hint lighter and more neutral than the rest of my body with some pink in my cheeks. My skin type is dry and my main concerns are skin texture and translucent skin under my eyes. Continue reading “Foundation Routine for Fair Dry Skin”
