Hello, guys

I do not know about you but me, personally I am desperately waiting for spring and warm weather to come already, but unfortunately we still have one more week to wait for that. So, until that, I have thought that the tips that I am going to give you are very useful, taking into consideration that it’s basically freezing outside.

There are a couple of things that you need to know about preventing or remedying chapped lips:

1. Drink LOTS of water

Drink as much water as possible. This tip is not only good for your lips but also for your hair, your skin, basically your whole body. 

2. Exfoliate your lips

This is the best instant remedy for dry and dehydrated lips. There are two possibilities for that. One is using an actual exfoliating lip cream, but if you don’t want to spend your money on that, you can simply just use your toothbrush by softly rubbing your lips with it. 

3. Moisturize

Moisturize your lips A LOT. Either using a lip balm, vaseline or pot marigold cream it is very beneficial for the appeareance of your lips. I personally use this Yves Rocher lip balm every single day and I am very pleased with it.

 

Let’s all pray for the warm weather and the sun to come as soon as possible and until that I’ll see you guys with a new post very soon 🙂

Born This Way Foundation | Review


Hello, guys 🙂

Happy New Year, everyone!  This new year, view the world with a positive outlook, speak your heart out with confidence, listen to others as well as your inner voice and you will be on the correct road in the correct direction. If the previous year hasn’t given you something to be happy and proud of, don’t fret. If the 31st of December signifies the end of a year, the 1st of January signifies the beginning. You have life; you have hope, go out there and accomplish all that you want. Happy 2017!

I decided that my first post of 2017 would be a detailed review of the famous Born This Way foundation by Too Faced. I have purchased this like 3 weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it 5 times since then. I am in the colour Porcelain, which is a fair shade with neutral undertones. 

Now, what it’s really cool is that it is said to be infused with coconut water to delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels, alpine rose to brighten skin’s appearance and promote elastcity and also hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance, so that’s another thing that made me want to get it. 

If you’ve seen the marketing for Born This Way, you know it promises benefits that blur the lines between skincare and makeup. With claims to moisturize and brighten skin while providing medium-to-full coverage that is “so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections”. I can’t see the difference in my skincare, but as far as makeup, it is one of the best foundations I have ever used. 

 

I have normal to combination skin, and the formula works very well on my type of skin. The coverage is medium with one layer and full with two layers, as it is said on the packaging. It looks flawless on the face, exactly like you were “born this way”.

The are only two things that I do not like about this foundation.

  1. If you are wearing it alone, without any powder, it does transfer quite easy. So I totally recommend using a setting powder with this. 
  2. It doesn’t have any SPF in it, which is not that big of a deal, but I do like to take extra protection of my skin.

 

After all, if I had to rate Born This Way foundation, I would definitely give it a 9/10. I totally recommend trying this foundation out, because you will be surprised of it’s quality. 

Until next time, I wish you an amazing week and for those who still have exams to take, lots of luck 🙂
