Foundation-My Guide-Part 2-Shade Matching 

Part 2 of my indepth guide to foundation is Shade Selection.  So in my last post I talked about Skin Prep. In the same way you wouldn’t start painting over a dirty old door and then say “This emulsion is rubbish” when the door looked crap, the same goes for your face. Like a painter…

Foundation-My Guide-Part 1- It’s a MineField!

I normally get it in shade 06, which is a…

Collection Glam Crytals Eyeliner

My Review of Collection’s Glam Crystals Glitter Eyeliner with swatches and photos  I have never owned a glitter eyeliner. It’s the sort of thing teenagers wear. I’m not sure they even existed when I was a teenager. And if they did, I had already spent all my money on bus fare and Macdonalds, in any…
