Brushes that take my makeup from 0 to 100 | My favourite brushes

As a beginner, I really didn’t know what brushes to go for. I could not afford MAC brushes and I didn’t even know where to start from. I started to build up my collection little by little.

Highlighting and Contouring for dark skin | Part 1

*** The last few years no one has been able to talk about makeup application without talking about highlighting and contouring. You have probably seen it go horribly wrong at least once in your lifetime! From hyper-beam highlighting to obvious unblended contouring! I have learnt how to highlight and contour my face without people questioning my sanity and wondering if I looked in the mirror before I walked outside my house! I will be doing a 3 part series on what products to use and how to highlight and contour. I will link all the…
