    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.

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

    Battle of the
    Last week I posted about my everyday make up look. Wearing make up daily comes with the burden of having to remove it every evening. Never, I repeat never go to bed with your make up on, just don’t. I have tried a number of makeup removers to find the one that works best for me. I use them to remove my make up before I cleanse my face using my normal cleanser and carry on with the rest of my nightly skin routine. This blog post lists the ones I have tried and my verdict.
