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”
I do have a tendency to ramble on and I have previously talked about a few of these products so for the purpose of keeping it shorter, I am simply going to rank this and provide a few reasonings behind my decision without going too much into detail about the finishes and undertones of all these.
Before I begin, let me note that I have very fair skin with yellow undertones which eliminates a lot of the most popular bronzers on the market for me. Continue reading “Ranking All My Bronzers”
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”
I am very much a nude lipstick afficionado with strong leanings towards the deeper end of the spectrum considering my skin tone. You won’t really catch me wearing anything paler than Nars Barbara or Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria but I already spoke of these two and actually recently ran out of Barbara and decided not to repurchase before I get through some of my other lipsticks. For the purpose of this post, I am talking all my favourite deeper nudes if you have lighter skin tone or simply nudes if you’re darker. Continue reading “Best Browny Nude Lipsticks”
Did I mention that I have a slight compulsion towards spreadsheets? And while I have used one to track my wardrobe inventory last year, I finally decided to pull one together for my makeup collection. I feel like to some extent ‘makeup inventory’ is just the new makeup collection concept but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t let some of my work analysis creep into this. Like my wardrobe inventory, I have Excel spreadsheet set up for every single makeup product I own but in no way will I be able to track cost per wear, nor do I find it necessary. For the purpose of this post, I have focused on yearly spending, category breakdown and threw in a brand diagram as a bonus. Continue reading “Makeup Inventory – Category and Cost Analysis”
