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. I get around 3-4 hours of shut eye each night and…

May Favourites

Happy FriYAY bellas, Yes I know this post is overdue but after a long week all I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep and have happy dreams about touring the world and buying lots of makeup. Not the most creative ideas for the weekend but eh, what’s a girl to do on an empty stomach.

My Top Concealer Picks

Hiya bellas, It’s been a just over a month since I started using Roaccutane. You can see my initial and previous post updates here and here. As I mentioned one of the side effects of Roacctutane is an initial flare up of breakouts and whilst I’m using the products listed here to control it, there are still loads of pimples and scarring left behind which I cannot do anything about until my 3 month course is complete. I have been using makeup daily to try and hide my grotesque appearance but most of the time my foundation, even though it’s…
