The BEST concealer in the world + causes of dark circles and how to hide them

Dark circles are the bane of my existence. That, along with pesky mosquitoes and washing my makeup brushes. The never-ending struggle of trying to hide them, wishing they could disappear forever. I don’t have the darkest undereye circles by any means but over the last few months they have darkened considerably. I’ve been on a quest to find the best concealer but also try to find the root of the problem. I’ve been told a number of possible reasons could be causing them. First and foremost, lack of sleep.

Brighter skin with Pixi Beauty – Get your glow on + GIVEAWAY!

Hiya bellas, I hope you had a fantastic long weekend. Even though I don’t celebrate anything this time of year, I’m always glad to have some much needed time off. I lazed around, binged watched series, made some awesome meals and did a tiny (ahem) bit of shopping. Yes some items were makeup if you must know. Another thing I did a lot of was pampering my skin. Tried a couple of new masks, both for the face and undereyes, and will share once I’ve tested them thoroughly. However, I thought I’d show you some products from Pixi Beauty that…

The most beautiful Mermaid Brush Set – Beauty by Benazir

A few weeks ago I received the most gorgeous brushes ever. Benazir Akbar, former MAC makeup artist and entrepreneur based in Joburg, sent me her Mermaid Brush Set to try out and review. When she contacted me, I assumed it would be the generic unicorn and diamond brush sets that you see in every social media post. When I opened the package though, I was wowed beyond words. I’d seen the Spectrum Glam Clam priced at $75 and I was like WOAH that’s crazy. Then I saw it being sold on Facebook for R1950 by third party sellers and assumed that was…
