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…

MorpheMe March Brushes are MAC dupes?!?

Hiya bellas, I got my MorpheMe March brushes last week and some of them looked sorta familiar. I rummaged through my brush collection and tried to spot the closest looking ones. Then I put them to the test to see if they were dupes and here’s what I came up with.

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…

Monday Mascara Mayhem – Drugstore Picks

Mascara. Mascara. Mascara. Where do I begin? Up until about 5 months ago, I absolutely hated wearing mascara. Yes HATE is a strong word but I swear, it felt like having goggas (that’s what we call insects) latching on to my lids and blurring my vision. Yes I know I was being dramatic but that’s how I truly felt for a very long time. That, in all honesty, was one of the reasons I’d chosen to get lash extensions in the first place. You can read more about my horrible experience here, but I loved the way my eyes looked…
