MOTD: A warm toned bronzey look

It’s Sring, but I find myself leaning towards more warm tones and bronzes today rather than the stereotypical Spring colours. Yep, a little more earthy toned for me today. Face: I started out using my holy grail foundation at the moment, Lancome Teint Idole in shade 05. It’s my darkest foundation and Summer hasn’t hit […]

MOTD: My Friday Face

It’s Friday – woohoo!!!! Hope you’re having a great day wherever you are. Here are my makeup choices today along with a pic of it in action below. Face: I used the Collection primer, which is more of  silicone based primer and good for filling in those pores. Over that I put LAGirl Pro Conceal […]

MOTD: A cooler toned makeup look

My skintone leans more neutral in the cooler months and is more warmer toned in summer – mainly due to my mixed heritage (I’m Afakasi). Because of that I can get away with wearing cooler tones as well as my usual warm toned looks. Face For this look I went with my Lancome Teint Idole […]

MOTD Friday Face

Here is my Friday morning makeup mess. I had an important meeting at work so decided to go a little more glam with some cooler tones than usual.

Weekend MOTD

A weekend trip to the mall with the family meant I wanted to look put together, but not like I had cake face (for a change lol). I started out with my trusty Australis Cosmetics primer – which has a hydrating gel-like consistency. It’s a great every day primer, that is low on the silicone […]
