Wen did u start getting into makeup

Hi love! I think I started getting into makeup at quite a young age. I always used to watch my mother put on makeup every day and would be fascinated haha. I started wearing makeup at around the age of 14 I believe. Just foundation, mascara and lip gloss really haha :)

No no why would I be annoyed! I love getting suggestions :D. That's a great idea thank you so much! I'll note that down too x

Are you sure your mac shade is nc40 I think that's way to dark for your complexion. Btw I wanted to know what's on your drugstore and high end wish list x

Haha no way! I'm definitely an NC40/42. I guess in my pictures I look lighter sometimes but I'm definitely not of a lighter skin tone. I haven't updated my wishlists in a little while but here they are:
Drugstore: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/3TJ4WC5LDSCA2/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o?
High end: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/1FLS7IR49G6QD/ref=cm_wl_sortbar_o_page_1

Can you do posts on a skincare routine everyday makeup routine some monthly favs and some products you didn't get along with. I would also love to see some of your favourite products to contour with! A lot I know lol but just some ideas

Girrrl don't you worry about that! I already have them in my list to do besides an everyday makeup routine but I'll note that down too! Thank you. I really appreciate the suggestions. The skincare routine my take a while however as I plan to review a lot of the products I use separately first, before I do a collective post.
I have been thinking about doing a monthly faves but I feel weird starting it in the middle of the year as opposed to the beginning of a year. What do you think? X

I have a hairy face. It's not thick hair but very dark, I use Jolen bleach cream to lighten the hair but still the hair is still slightly noticeable. Would waxing help or make it grow thicker and faster?

Waxing is definitely the better option. Over time, the hair will grow back less and also be thinner x

So I bought a gorgeous foundation but when I apply it's really hard to apply like it doesn't go on smoothly and it's a bit thick. How do I thin it out? Thanks xx

Hi love, sorry for the late reply! I would suggest using MAC Fix+ to thin it out and also applying it with a makeup sponge for a flawless application. Hope this helped x

What do you do to make your body one colour..I have the same skin tone as you but my elbows,bum,stomach and knees are 2 shades darker :( Any natural remedies or products I should use. Thanks a lot

Hey hun, sorry for the late reply! I have this problem too but I'm too lazy to try remedies for it tbh. Try to embrace the skin you're in!
The only remedy I've heard about a lot is using a lemon and sugar scrub. Lemon has brightening properties while sugar acts as an exfoliant to remove dead layers of skin and correct discolouration when used with lemon. Potatoes are also good for this too. Hope this helped!

Heya! My hair is ridiculously frizzy can you recommend any good products to help tame it haha x

Hi there love. We're in the same boat then! Unfortunately nothing I've tried has worked wonder to be honest but I'll be sure to let everyone know when I find the miracle!
Products I have tried that have made a slight difference are:
-Palmers Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning Protein Pack
-Pure Coconut Oil
- John Freida Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Shampoo & Conditioner
- and Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo.
Loads of people have recommended the John Freida Frizz Ease Serums to me but to be honest serums make my hair greasy. I may try it soon but I dunno if that's something you want to give a go?
Hope this helped x

Hiya. Easiest brush and allows quick application for foundation? Rt expert face seems a bit small.idk I fell out w it. Have u tried any fat/big brushes? I'm not into sponges & things..lol & I wanna do my foundation easily n quickly :)

I would say the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Really great for 5 minute makeup. Also, the Zoeva 102 Silk Finish brush is brilliant for really working the product into the skin quickly. Although my only qualm with it is that it's hard to get the product around the eye and nose area since it's bigger than usual foundation brushes. Sometimes if I feel like quickly painting my face I'll use my Real Techniques Foundation Brush, takes a bit longer though as my foundation can be left looking slightly streaky if I'm not careful.
Hope this helped!

Hun. How do u conceal blemishes or faded ones to the point they look pretty smooth and blended in with the foundation? I find that I conceal with the foundation I use it looks better n smooth, concealer just makes it obvious cuz it forms like some dryness n even the conclr color turns weird smtimes

Yeah concealer can often make discolouration or blemishes look ashy. I would recommend using a corrector. Green correctors are normally used to counteract redness i.e. spots or reduce the appearance of rosacea. Orange/Peach correctors are normally used to counteract the blue/purple tones which are often found under the eye or around the mouth. LA Girl have recently come out with correctors which are fairly cheap. Alternatively you could buy MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Duo which is on the pricey side at £23.00. Also, I would recommend trying to apply your foundation and concealer with different tools. After trying the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge/Beauty Blender I barely use brushes to apply my base. Makeup sponges add such a seamless touch to your foundation/concealer and if you want a more smooth appearance I'd highly suggest trying either one! To be honest, I like the Real Techniques sponge better, plus it's cheaper too!
Another thing you could do about dryness is maybe switching up your powder? I recently changed my setting powder and I find my makeup sits way better. I also find spraying MAC Fix+ over my face once it's powdered, helps to reduce the powdery appearance I often get once everything is set.
I hope this helped!

I read your blog post on the mac studio sculpt foundation and I totally agree! It's the first foundation I've even worn and bought and I'm not impressed. I don't wear foundation often but do you have any recommendations for combo skin thanks!

I know right. I was quite disappointed! I love Estee Lauder Double Wear, NARS Sheer Glow and MAC's Pro Longwear Foundation and I have combination skin. Hope this helps chick :)

I'm obsessed with the lip colour Kylie Jenner wears but all I know is that it's mac but not the shade. Do you know of any good dupe?

She supposedly wears MAC Whirl/Soar Lip Pencil. Colourpop Bound is a dupe for Whirl as well as NYX Mauve Lip Pencil and some dupes for Soar are L'Oréal Lip Liner in Rosewood, Avon Mystery Mauve as well as Colourpop Brink. Hope this helps!

I wanted a liquid eyeliner x

I've only really tried drugstore liquid eyeliners but Supercat Liner by Soap and Glory is great if you'd like a glossy finish. If you prefer more of a matte finish, the 2true liquid eyeliner is surprisingly good quality. I've also heard great things about the L'Oréal liquid eyeliners but I've yet to try them yet! Hope this helps x

Could you recommend any cheap eyeshadow palettes that compliment Asian skin tone?

I'd recommend the Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 eyeshadow palette. It's a dupe to the Naked 1 Palette which looks great on Asian skin tones :). The Makeup Revolution palettes are amazing. I'd recommend checking out the Hard Day Palette, Iconic Pro 1 & 2, Flawless, I heart chocolate, Naked chocolate and Welcome To The Pleasuredome palette. Amazing quality for affordable prices!
