    low end vs high end // setting sprays edition

    setting sprays

    The last time I did this low end vs high end feature it was on mascaras, this time I am coming back with setting sprays. Setting sprays are a must in all makeup stashes. The main use is to ensure that it doesn’t move around throughout the day and also depending on the type of setting sprat, they can give you a dewy finish or mattify your makeup. When I started using makeup, I did not use setting sprays because the ones that I saw were all high end and I couldn’t afford them at the time. As luck would have it, there are more affordable setting sprays available on the market, in this post I will compare the high end and low end setting sprays that I own.

I always wonder how we are expected to buy foundation if there aren’t any testers available. Read more…

    How to get your eyes popping eyeshadow bases

    As part of my daily makeup routine I do not wear eye shadow every day because it takes so long to apply. On the days that I do apply eyeshadow, I first apply primer and then use an eyeshadow base. The eyeshadow base helps to even out the eyelid, lightens it up and makes the eyeshadows pop. I currently have 3 eyeshadow bases in my makeup collection; this post will go through them and I also have swatches of each eyeshadow base. Read more…


    The lazy girl’s guide to soft skin overnight: In shower body moisturisers

    In shower body moisturisers South Africa

    I am one of those people who does not like to moisturise my body after my evening shower.

In comes in shower body moisturisers, I can moisturise while I’m in the shower, dry up and slip straight into my PJs – no mess no fuss. Sounds like a winner to me. Read more…
