South Korea is renowned for having quality skincare. Over the past couple years, Korean skincare has grabbed the attention of the West with its affordable and highly effective facial products. Korean skincare is also notorious for having a large range of products that may be overwhelming to Westerners who are unfamiliar with such products. The 10-step Korean skincare routine has recently gained attention by its (perceived to be) lengthy, complicated process, and by the people who swear by it. While many people believe they do not have time for a daily 10-step skincare routine, one might be surprised how undemanding the practice actually is.
If there's one beauty-related category that most people will tell you to splurge on, it's skin care. We can always use cheap eyeliner reasonably well, and lip gloss? Well, you can DIY that pretty easily. Even cheap foundation can be fairly decent if you know where to look.
When I was growing up, makeup was used for special occasions and in moderation. I never saw it as a form of self-expression until I reached my late teens to early twenties. Now, I am addicted to the transforming effect it has. It's not all about the looks I create but the products themselves. I love getting a new palette and swatching the colours up my arm. Grabbing all my lipsticks and wondering which colour would go with the look I am trying to achieve. Looking at pretty, shiny, glittery things makes me really happy!
So, as my first post on here, I am here to talk about Jeffree Star Cosmetics, what I love about the brand and my review of each item they personally sell at the moment (cosmetics only).
Oh, I know just how pricy makeup brushes can be. And if you're aiming for the best quality, just like most of us, then they're no doubt going to empty your wallet. Buying makeup brushes straight from stores can be super expensive. But I'm not talking about sets of brushes — just one single brush can be about $20 - $50. I'm serious; there are solo brushes that are $50, possibly more. Do you know how many good quality brushes you can buy with $50? You don't need to drop that much on just one brush.
Dry shampoo is a total savior for not only days that you woke up late and didn't have time to wash your hair, but for your head's healthiness as a whole. So many people use dry shampoo on the daily to prevent them from having to overwash their hair, while giving them a put together look, minus the oil.
It is an understatement to say that The Ordinary skincare range has caused a bit of a stir in the blogosphere as of late. Not all of the feedback has been good, with some criticisms that the strength of the active ingredients may be compromised by the affordable packaging and that the simple formulations are not as sophisticated as even marginally more expensive products.
Women are good at faking it, we all know this. We fake confidence, we fake “having it all together” and of course, on occasion, we fake it in the bedroom. That’s not where the pretending ends though, after a night of no sleep, whether it be from a cranky baby or a late booze-filled night, we are sometimes forced to fake a well rested and motivated game face.
