Ride or Die Makeup Tag

Hiya bellas, So I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the new look and feel of the blog. If you haven’t, what do you think? I really wanted to update the theme to something more simple and sophisticated. The layout and colours I had before were very much a reflection of one side of my personality but the OCD kicked in and I realised I wanted a bit more structure. I am a perfectionist and choosing just one theme to depict what I like was one of the toughest things ever. I finally decided on a layout based on the types…

It’s my 2nd Blogiversary!!!

Oh my word! Can you believe it? It almost slipped my mind. Here I was, relaxing with the kids and it hit me like lightning once I realised the date. It has been exactly two years since I started blogging. And what a long way we’ve come. I remember my first post like it was yesterday.

Not that there is anything wrong with it, I’ve just been spending my time doing other things before work instead of beating my face. So this month the amount of items I’ve worn the entire day has been limited to lips, flawless skin and a pop of highlight. I’ve tried a lot of new products the last couple of weeks and these are the ones that I really enjoyed. Palladio Velvet Matte Cream Lip…

How I wash my Makeup Brushes

Surprisingly, this is one of the questions I get asked quite a lot. I’d have given you a different answer depending on when you asked. I decided to finally tackle this blog post because I have been using these products weekly and I don’t see myself changing it anytime soon. For most of you, like myself, cleaning makeup brushes is a laborious and tedious task. As much as I would rather be spending time with my kids or catching up on series, I know it needs to be done. I store my brushes upright in a brush holder and because it has no…
