Here is a look at my current makeup routine, and we are talking about morning routine, not a special night out or not even the weekend morning when I have time, can relax and all. During the week days, I often do my makeup in a taxi, or even public transport. Yes, I have already learned how to apply the liner on the go. The things I do to sleep those extra 10 minutes.
I always see how people recommend that when you want to save when it comes to beauty products, it should never be a base. Ironically, my foundation is the cheapest product from the selection but it is really lovely. It gives that beautiful sheer dewy finish that is my favourite.

And how sad is the fact that it’s the last season. Can’t wait for the Christmas special, and I want it to be a happy ending for everyone, life is tough enough, so I want to enjoy a fairy-tale on screen at least.
I’ve also had a chance to watch Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel documentary finally and loved every minute of it. I had to pause a lot to look carefully at all the images, pure eye candy.
I am loving the lipstick and theRead More
