Are Foundation Sticks making a comeback? | Best Foundation sticks for Women of Colour

 The game has really changed for cream foundations. I tend to use cream foundations for my contour because I find it more natural than using powder and it blends out nicely. But I recently decided to buy the Hourglass foundation stick and I was so impressed, I am now a firm believer in cream foundations. The new and improved formula for most of these foundation sticks gives your skin a flawless finish as well as hydrating the skin. They are lightweight and creamy and make applying so easy. They are less messy than liquid foundations. Oily…

My ‘Two Eyeshadow’ Makeup Look | 6 easy steps

Hey my lovelies, how y’all doing? Great I hope! If not, then hopefully I can cheer you up. Using eyeshadows can seem so complicated. Similar to the offside rule in football, I just couldn’t understand it. I looked at an eyeshadow palette, and I might as well been trying to figure out quantum physics because I didn’t know where to start from when looking at all the colours. What do I apply to my crease? In fact what is a crease in my eye?! However, the turning point came when I mastered my ‘two eyeshadow’…

The Good, the Alrights and the Ugly of Liquid Lipsticks | Part 2

“THE ALRIGHTS” You know those makeup products that confuse your soul. One minute, you pick it up and think ‘I like you’, then next minute you remember why you don’t reach for it on a daily basis. It is like when you are hormonal, and you are about to start that time of the month *ladies know what I am talking about here’, and for some reason you just cant stand people who on a normal day you actually like! Like why are you talking to me, why are you even touching me, heck why are…

The Good, the Alrights and the Ugly of Liquid Lipsticks | Part 1

Heyyyyyyy my lovelies, I hope you all are having a great day. I have tried a couple of different brands for liquid lipsticks, and I will be honest with you, I’m getting tired of crap liquid lipsticks. I mean, there are some liquid lipsticks that receive soo much hype, they get the right beauty influencers behind them, sell that the liquid lipstick is the bomb.com and you spend your money buying them and they are just rubbish! On the other hand though, I have tried some liquid lipsticks with amazing formulas. Formulas that leave your…

Comparing Concealers for Medium to Dark Skin Tones | Tarte Shape Tape, Urban Decay, NARS & LA Girl

Hey guys, I can’t believe we are coming up to the end of January 2017! Where has time gone?! I picked up some makeup bits and bobs while I was in LA a few days ago, one specifically being the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. My friend and I got this concealer at IMATS 2017, so we got it at a discount which was really cool. One thing that bugs me about Tarte is the fact that that it is not easy to get in the UK. They are not on beautybay.com or on cultbeauty.com, and…

These are the products that I hated in 2016, well ‘hate’ is such a strong word, let’s say ‘ products in 2016…

How to Spot Fake Dose Of Colors Liquid Lipsticks

I think Dose of Colors Liquid Lipsticks have one of the best formulas for liquid lipsticks. They are comfortable and light on your lips but matte. The formula is spot on. Hands down this is one of the best liquid lipsticks out there. I bought a couple of shades from doseofcolors.com when my friend went to America, so I didn’t have to pay for international shipping. Yup, I have to save these coins! I love the shades that they have, they are quite unique, which is a great thing. I haven’t done a full review…
