It is well known how hard it may be to find the right shade of the foundation, often it can cost a lot, as buying the wrong shade and formula is not an uncommon thing. However, there are ways to save some money when it comes to buying makeup. For example with couponing websites such as Discontrue.com or RetailMeNot. You can find there numerous promos for all your favorite shops including Kohl’s.
And here are more tips on how to achieve a complexion of your dreams.
Department Store Shopping
During your next department store trip, take three different foundations and apply near the jawline. You’d want to check the shades in the natural light to see the best match. After choosing the one that looks the closest to your skin tone – apply it all over your face to see how it feels on the skin during the day.
I had a relatively long hair and my natural colour for years (here is a photo). And… a) I have a lot of hair but it is thin and doesn’t look that good b)I had the same, more or less, length for years and years; plus I did not colour it so I got very bored, as I used to change my hair style all the time in the past.
This is why back in February I’ve asked to chop off all the thin and damaged hair, so I ended up with a shoulder length hair style. It was a big change but once I was over a slight shock, I knew that I was ready for more experiments. This is why last week, I changed my hair style completely, and I even had it coloured for the first time in years.
It is nothing too dramatic, just a darker shade of cool toned brown which is still not as cool (toned), as I wanted it to be. My natural colour is really cool toned, and I hate anything warm/reddish on myself. But I find that it is even harder to get a spot-on dark hair than blonde (I was blonde for several years).
After hours of
Recently I posted a feature about beauty books every girl needs which I wrote for Mode. There I actually said that Perfumes A to Z Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez is on top of my wish list, after so many recommendations of people who know and love perfume.
I finally bought it last month, and although I did not have a chance to read it properly yet, I really love it so far. I was happy to discover that perfumes that I love got high rates and laughed at some other witty and honest reviews. My brother was also intrigued by this book and borrowed it to read about his colognes and to find some new ones.
I am sure that it is as good as everyone says it is. I am only sad that it’s from 2009 so a lot of new(er) perfumes are not included.
The other book I’ve bough is
Since “What’s in my Handbag” was a very requested feature – I am finally doing one. I hope you will like it. I’d say that I always carry more of less the same things and it works perfectly for me.
I have somehow forgot to include my phone, as it was charging and also my keys. But those two are obvious, and nothing interesting anyway.
Here we go:
The handbag itself, I change them all the time. And this Mulberry one is one of my favourites.
Purse, I’ve had it for years now, and actually need new one soon. Maybe there is one you’d recommend?
A notebook and a pen. This beautiful leather notebook was a present from one of my best friends and I absolutely adore it. I love writing lists on paper, and that will probably never change. I also use only pens with black ink. That may sound weird but it’s true, has been like this for years now. #BlackForever
I could never be without my
