wanting to start your skincare routine and feeling overwhelmed? I streamlined the basic steps of skincare, coupling them with some more affordable suggestions of products for you to pick. and I’ve listed some of the most common add-ons – the other building blocks you can slowly introduce to your routine, according to your skin’s needs. make sure you have products you like to use everyday, because a routine is made of persistence.
on a daily basis, for winter I love to wear either a simple glossy/balmy lip or a bold matte lipstick. on my quite full days, a liquid lipstick wouldn’t last me looking as neat as I need it for that many hours, and also they tend to dry my lips out quite a lot, so I tend to resort to simple matte lipsticks regularly (and leave the liquid lips for nights out or shorter periods of time).
matte lipsticks (at least the ones I mention) don’t dry my lips out, don’t look parched, feel super comfortable for a lot longer, don’t bleed on my fine lines, and are super easy to reapply. their downside is that they transfer. they can be used as blushers (no more fiddling around with matching powders), and if you don’t like the slight hint of sheen they still have, all you have to do is blot.
an update on my favourites and routine for my oily hair was waaaaay overdue, so here it is, with a few tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way that have helped me keep it under control and looking fairly healthy despite not spending that much time on it.
if you’re like me and you don’t like to leave the house without your precious skincare and makeup, but also feel ridiculous by checking in your bag for a 3-day trip just because of the liquids-security issue, this video may just come in handy.
