my current fave face: glowy skin & bright lip

Current fave face

I’m a regular makeup wearer – mostly on weekdays and I love playing around with different looks. My current fave face is a minimal look which consist of a glowy face, minimal/neutral eyeshadow and a bright lip. Even though this look might be perceived as a summer look I’ve been wearing it through winter and also, Durban hasn’t gotten the memo that we’re in winter yet.

the inkey list: what i bought

the inkey list

I came across The Inkey List when I was browsing the Cult Beauty and I was immediately intrigued because of the type of products that they have and the price. I also liked the fact that at that time the brand had a smaller product selection than The Ordinary (which can be quite overwhelming to shop from). This has since changed, I’ve been to their website recently and more products to their selection.

the setting powders that I’m currently using

setting powders for african women

Setting powders are a staple in my makeup routine, I don’t go a day without using them. Having said that they’re also super hard to hit pan on because only such a little get used at a time. Thus I’ve had the same setting powders for yeaarrrsss and I hardly ever add new ones to my stash, unless of course it’s a Fenty product!

review // vitamin E night cream from The Body Shop

vitamin E night cream

I have a confession: for the longest time I didn’t use separate day and night moisturisers, I just used 1 moisturiser throughout. All this changed towards the end of 2018 when I started using a moisturiser which had SPF and I knew that I didn’t want to use it at night because I didn’t need sun protection after dark. And that is how The Vitamin E Night Cream from The Body Shop came into my life.

introducing the new bioderma pigmentbio range

Bioderma Pigmentbio

When I saw the Bioderma Pigmentbio range being slowly revealed on the Bioderma Instagram page – I was immediately intrigued. My skin is currently acting up and has developed more hyperpigmentation after going through a hormonal acne phase so a hyperpigmentation range is right up my alley. I was lucky to be sent all the products in the Pigmentbio range and I want to share information about the products with you and also reveal my thoughts on the products.

review // mac shiny pretty things face compact

mac shiny pretty things face compact

The MAC Shiny Pretty Things Face Compact was that one product that I didn’t know I needed until after I bought it. It was an impulse buy which has turned out to be one of my favourite products. It was part of the holiday collection and by the time I came to buy it, it was on special, score! View Post

face masks that are worth your money

Face masks

Masking is a big part of my skincare routine – I make sure to mask at least once a week. I must admit that when sheet masks came into my radar I completely ditched the wash-off face masks for the ease and convenience of sheet masks. I am finally back from lazy-ville and I’ve been using wash-off masks more often in the recent months. Let me show you the ones I have in my routine and my thoughts on them.

review // bioderma gel moussant: purifying cleansing foaming gel

bioderma gel moussant: purifying cleansing foaming gel

Cleansing my face is one of those areas where my views have changed a lot since I developed my current skincare routine. Before I didn’t know better and used quite harsh cleansers which would often leave my skin with a tight feeling afterwards but I didn’t know that it was a bad thing. Since seeing the light I am now very strict with my cleanser choice and what I want it to deliver. View Post
