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…

MAC Shadescents Range – Velvet Teddy Perfume & Lipstick

Happy Monday bellas, I hope you had an amazing weekend. Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently. I’m trying to introduce some new features into my blog posts that will benefit you very much. Just been struggling a bit to get it to work properly so this might be a slightly quieter week as well.

Oh and I have a giveaway running where you could win an item from that collection so don’t forget to check it out. Min…

Then I put them to the test to see if they were dupes and here’s what I came up with. Morphe M401 – $14 This large pointed powder brush is perfect for baking under the eyes as well as sweeping away the bakage without disturbing the lower layers. It’s fluffy enough to apply blush to the cheeks as well as a tapered tip for contouring. The tulip shaped brush…

MAC Mariah Carey Collection + Giveaway

Happy Monday again bellas, I can’t even surprise you with the giveaways anymore because the title gives it away. Yeah yeah, corny I know. I hope you guys had an awesome weekend and are fresh and excited for the week ahead. I know I am because just this morning I found out that tomorrow is a public holiday. I’m so delayed but I guess that gives me time to relax again which I ain’t complaining about. It’s been so difficult to write this post. On one hand the MAC Mariah Collection is the most stunning one I have EVER seen. On…
