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”
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”
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”
Having red hair and yellow undertones makes finding bronzers quite a challenge. Anything yellow toned (think Benefit Hoola Lite) will make me look like I have jaundice and that’s the last thing I need. On top of that, the more neutral tone the more muddy it can look on my skin and despite its cult following, Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze in Tantastic is very much borderline too neutral to look flattering on me so I’ll say I was fairly intrigued when Tantalize came out because I’ve often reached for darker toned bronzers because the undertone turned was more of what I was looking for.

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”
