Current Lifestyle Books Wish List

I love seeing what my friends are reading, so I thought I’d share the books which are on my wish list as well. But not just any books but the ones which are at least somehow related to the topic of the website.  I don’t read popular literature or “chick (the word I actually hate) lit” so not sure how interesting my usual picks would be.

Here we go:

The Beauty/Style

  1. Perfumes: The Guide 2018  by Turin and Sanchez (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve actually had this book but lost it while moving somehow so I have to pick up a new copy, very unimpressed about it. It’s a must for anyone who wants to understand perfume better.

Big Little Lies Makeup Breakdown

When it comes to films and series, there are usually a lot of “Steal Her Style” features where the authors suggest what pieces you could buy to get a similar look to your favourte character, should you chose to do so.

But there are not enough articles which focus on beauty or makeup looks, if you ask me. And that is what I always pay attention to when I watch films/series.  I actually wrote about the beauty elements of Gossip Girl, as well as Blair Waldorf‘s wedding makeup  and Sex and The City already.

I also had a breakdown of the Pan Am looks straight from the Make-Up Artist.

So today I’d like to share about the makeup from the Big Little Lies. Here are the screens from the show when Celeste Wright was getting ready in

1. It removes superficial dirt, pollution, and  products residue 

One of the most important reasons why people should invest in makeup removers for their skin care routine is because of the overall effects. The main purpose is to remove dirt, pollution, and makeup which ends up on our skin throughout the day. This also helps with the cell renewal process, just without scrubbing the face with gritty exfoliators, since many makeup removers or oil cleansers are generally made with ingredients that are beneficial for the skin.

2. It reduces the risk of developing more blemishes and breakouts in the future

Incorporating oil cleansers and makeup removers in your daily skin care regime promotes  habits that help with an overall  appearance of the skin.  Removal of all that

Why You Need To Invest In Makeup Tools

Today’s feature is a collaboration with a guest  beauty writer who shares tips on why it is a good idea to invest  in makeup brushes.

Makeup can be a great investment to have especially when it comes to bringing out your natural beauty. When applied properly it can help hide some of your flaws while enhancing some of your best features in a subtle manner. In an industry as huge as the beauty and cosmetics department, several brands like Skinfood often provide various makeup options that often come in packages coupled with a handful of sponges, brushes, and unique applicators.

These accessories are included to help apply the product evenly while also matching the contour of your face with ease. However, it is important to note that not all applicators are made the same.
