REVIEW: BURT’S BEES CUCUMBER & SAGE CLEANSING WIPES

kfdjgkfd

I know, I know; admitting to using face wipes is reason enough to lose all of my beauty street cred, but hey, I’ve been away on vacation and I’ve been so lazy with skin care, I should actually pat myself on the back now that I’m taking steps to make sure I actually remove my makeup at night.

FAKING MY WAY TO THE PERFECT COMPLEXION

If you’re here to read about the perfect eye cream or the holy grail moisturizer we’ve all been praying for then read no further cause, as it happens, I’m still trying to figure this whole skin care thing out. I mean who has the time for a 5-step day and night routine on top of 8 glasses of water a day? Not me, that’s who.

This is actually the face of skin care neglect and a weak bladder.

BOOK REC – MAN REPELLER: SEEKING LOVE, FINDING OVERALLS

fdg

There’s never been a time in which I haven’t repelled men, but I only became aware of being a full blown Man Repeller when a guy once claimed to dislike me because my lipstick was “too red”.*

*It wasn’t. In fact, he was referring to it being too dark, not red. I was going through a goth-chic faze, and really dark plums were everything.

A HAIR CARE NOOB

IMG_9501Let me just start this by saying that I am completely new to all things hair care. I don’t reeaally take much care of things up there. I just iron it every time I wash it and I don’t even bother with a heat protectant most of the times which apparently is the beauty equivalent of parking in a disabled space. But lately it’s just been hanging there looking dull and boring which can be especially distressing whenever you binge watch Made in Chelsea with clenched fists because you want hair like that, goddammit!

So I went on a quest for products that would help me get the volume and texture I wanted without having to spend ages doing my hair, and I think I found the perfect routine with the following products. Continue reading

FESTIVAL MAKEUP

Untitled-1

Once again the time has come for us ladies to pile on the bright coral lipsticks and bring out the light crochets and flower crowns that are perfect for this season!* It’s summertime; and while the season does come with its downsides (namely, actually having to shave my legs regularly), it is also the time for us to get excited about the large number of music festivals that are popping up everywhere. So I decided to make a little list of beauty products that are both low maintenance and easy to carry around.

*The previous statement is a lie; I’ve never been able to pull off this look.

TUTORIAL: LANA DEL REY

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny Lana del Rey’s makeup is always on point. Inspired by the makeup in the 60’s, this look requires a pretty heavy hand with mascara and a super sharp cat-eye flick.

TUTORIAL: EVERY DAY MAKEUP – BRONZER FOR FAIR SKIN

Hello strangers! Lately I’ve been starting to venture myself into the whole bronzed look. But since I hate tanning (yawn!), and I put a lot of effort into taking care of my skin, I found that every time I even attempted to make myself look a little less pale I ended up looking like George Hamilton.

But after months of experimenting I finally found a way to make bronzer work on my skin, so I thought I’d share the knowledge with you guys.
