The Best Mask for Winter Skin

I’ll be the first person to tell you, my skin suffers in winter. It gets dry and flakey, I can’t wear most of my foundations cause they make me look crusty. My makeup routine becomes a small layer of something really light and liquid, cream highlight and contour, and I can forget about setting my face with any kind of powder. The struggle is real.

Tutorial: Neutral Eye

Apologies for the lack of posting in March, I did a bit of travelling and did not have enough time to pre-write or film. I am back though, and back with a simple neutral eye tutorial using a very affordable palette: Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Eyeshadows palette.

I was thinking of starting a series where I test out drugstore/affordable eyeshadow palettes and let you know which ones are worth it and which ones aren’t? Let me know what you think! Enjoy the video!

Review: Sleek I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Processed with VSCO with acg preset

I discovered Sleek just over a year ago and it’s been one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands since, not only is it super affordable but I’ve yet to buy a product of theirs that I didn’t really like.

One of the first products I ever bought from them was their i-Divine palette. I was looking for a simple browny-neutral palette that was suitable for everyday, but as I don’t wear eyeshadow that often I wasn’t willing to invest much. The Au Natural palette seemed perfect for me, and it was.
