Most if not all of the tips I’ve picked up came from this blog. Some definite game changers for me:
Using coconut oil as makeup remover.
Peach coloured undereye concealer, which works wonders for […]

Blushes-MAC
Lipsticks-MAC

Most of my brushes get modified as soon as I buy them. I cut off part of the […]

I think I know what I’m going to do with my BTM empties…

My Beauty Blender became a cat toy. It still hasn’t tuned up. The replacements I hauled from Sephora are kept out of reach.

MAC Teddy on my lower lash line. Anything goes when it comes to my upper lash line. My most reached for are TT Spark of Envy, UD Rockstar, Sephora Sailor Suit, Sephora Fairytale, MAC Undercurrent, and MAC Petrol Blue.

Coconut oil. It dissolves EVERYTHING!!

UD Naked 3 palette. I can’t chose a specific colour as they all get used fairly equally.

Fyrinnae Pigmy Hippo lip lustre.

Estée Lauder Violet Underground palette.
