    my foundation collection

    Foundation for women of colour South Africa

    Foundation is the ultimate base for a flawless makeup look. I’ve used countless foundations since I started wearing makeup in 2014 but I’m at a point where I’ve found the best ones for my foundation collection which I love and wear regularly. I made a decision in 2017 that I’m going to stop buying foundation from the lower end of the price spectrum and rather save up to buy high end foundations. If you want to know the reason for this decision you can watch this video where I go into a bit of depth about my reasoning. Read more…


    new in // the ordinary lactic acid

    The Ordinary

    If you have not heard about this brand of skincare that has hit the beauty world by storm then you must be living under a rock somewhere 😀. The Ordinary has been all the rage lately because of providing quality skincare products at affordable prices. I wanted to buy a chemical exfoliant for my face and decided to get one from this brand in order to try them out. I wasn’t quite sure which type of chemical exfoliant to get so I read up on Clare’s blog and asked her on Twitter and that’s how I came to buying lactic acid from The Ordinary.  Read more…

    my morning skincare routine

    Morning skincare routine

    In  2017 I shared my evening skincare routine on my YouTube channel and on the blog. In the video I mentioned how I put a lot of effort into my evening routine more than my morning routine. I feel that in the evening my skin needs extra care because it’s dealing with all the dirt, grime & makeup from the whole day. In the mornings I keep it simple and do a few steps before applying my makeup – I am usually very short of time in the mornings so a quick morning skincare routine is right up my alley.  Read more…


    face and body product empties

    face and body empties

    I love the feeling of finishing a product, be it a makeup, bath or body product, I get such a sense of accomplishment. I also feel that as a blogger, the best reviews come from the products that you actually use till the bitter end, then you can truly tell how the product treated your skin and have a better sense on whether to repurchase or not. I have a number of empties that have accumulated over the last 2 months and I want to share my thoughts on them and whether I will be repurchasing or not. Read more…


    low end vs high end // brow pencils

    eyebrow pencils

    All makeup lover knows that brows are everything and can either make or break a look. A lot of us need a bit (or a lot of help) in the brow department; we have to fill them in to get them looking fleeky. I have gone through a lot of brow products; it’s an ever evolving process. There are many different kinds out there from powders, pomades, pencils, crayons and so forth. I own all the the above listed, but in this post I want to concentrate on brow pencils. The aim of these types of posts is to save you guys some coins and give you alternative low end products that are just as good as the high end ones. I’ve done this type of post previously for mascaras and setting spraysRead more…
