makeup organisation and storage systems

Makeup storage options that’ll help you to use all the products you own

One of my biggest challenges as a makeup junkie is to use all the products I actually own. Yes, I lead a hard life, obviously. My motto is, though, if I own it I should use it, and all my makeup storage solutions centre around that. If I can’t see it, I won’t use it. Simple. Therefore, I try to organise my beauty stash so I’m actually able to see everything when I open drawers and there isn’t a jumble of products inside. Here’s how I do it.

Mini review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and Two Tone Lip Bar in Maxi Red

Confession time – when I hit ‘post’ initially, my introduction consisted only of the words ‘intro’, because honestly, I’m running out of words.

Seoul K-beauty shopping for beginners

Beauty shopping in Seoul – the 101 on K-Beauty shopping

Seoul has to be the most exciting city for beauty junkies to visit. There’s no city (that I know of) that’s as permeated with all things beauty like Seoul. I mean, there’s a whole neighbourhood dedicated to beauty shops! You’re also getting a hint about the general beauty-crazedness when you arrive at the airport – virtually every billboard was adverting cosmetics. Every. One. It’s very easy to get overwhelmed, so here’s my Seoul K-beauty shopping for beginners!

Everything I learned when I dyed my hair purple

Ten things I learned when I dyed my hair purple

About one year ago I dyed my hair purple for the first time. That was quite an experience, first requiring bleaching parts of my natural brown hair with some blonde, washed out highlights. Then my wonderful hairdresser dyed various strands with two different kinds of purple, creating an ombre effect towards the ends. Flash forward to today, and my hairstyle has become a bit brighter, a bit more ombre, and I’ve even touched up my colour a few times myself. Here’s what I learned in this year of purple hair.READ MORE

Greenery – Pantone Color of the Year 2017: how to wear it

Every year, Pantone comes out with their Color of the Year. We’ve covered quite a few years already – Marsala, here, and Rose Quartz and Serenity here.

Short answer: Because Pantone subtly influences your shopping behaviour. Go ahead, scoff and laugh – I’ll prove it to you after the cut! (Also, pretty makeup.)READ MORE

Armani liquid lipstick review

Armani Lip Magnet review – liquid matte lipsticks gone high-end

The new year is barely ten days old, and I’m already breaking the rules I set for myself in my bucket list for 2017. This exact rule I’m speaking about is steering clear of the wishy-washy high-end incorporations of matte liquid lipsticks, always watered down versions of the real thing. But then, I stood in front of the Armani counter, saw the new(ish) Lip Magnets and curiosity got the better of me.READ MORE

Three lipstick and blush dream teams that work

And then you break out of your routine, and start to wonder – does this new lipstick work with this look? How about this blush, does it work? How to pair lips and cheeks, dammit?READ MORE
