If there is a single product that I've reached out for the most this summer, it has got to be Caudalie's Grape Water facial mist spray. No lie, I am probably on my seventh bottle of this stuff. Made with 100% organic grapes, it is a super refreshing spritz toner that aims to moisturise as well as soothe sensitive skin. If my face ever feels itchy or red, I reach for this. If I've stepped out from a long flight or journey, I reach for this. If my skin is irritated from a product or from waxing/threading, I reach for this. You get the gist. I always like to carry this everywhere I go in my handbag because the cold sensation of the grapewater immediately cools down my hot and flustered skin or if my makeup just needs an instant 'wake me up' boost. 



Highlighting is my favourite step when it comes to doing my makeup routine because I find that it really helps to complete the look together by adding a bit of an extra oomph. Nothing makes me feel as confident as I do when stepping outside of the house with sheeny radiant cheekbones and a glowy, healthy-looking face. Based on this reason, The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer knows how to deliver! Just a caution though- a little goes a long way with this Mary Lou highlight. With using a fan brush, you can create the most subtle glow with a single swipe, or if you feel a bit more daring by opting for a full on strobing effect, just pack on a little more of this buttery, finely-milled powder onto the brush and dust it across the high points of your cheeks and brow bones. I also like using this in the inner corner of my eyes to brighten the area up. 



Last week, I did some splurging to blow off stress from university work load and I definitely do not feel an ounce bit of regret in my system. On the contrary, I am now a proud owner of the cult classic lipstick Ruby Woo. In case you've been living under a rock and not heard every blogger on the block brag about this iconic MAC product, let me tell you in short description: this lipstick is a showstopper. Suits every skin tone- from fair to medium and darker complexions, anyone can literally pull off this lipstick. I always have a hard time finding the right shade of red but this colour suited me perfectly. It has sort of a bright vibrancy to it that really makes you look fresh, awake and gives off a "I'm ready to take on the world" kind of vibe. Its more of a cool-toned lipstick with not a hint of glitter or a pearly sheen, instead it leaves a gorgeous velvety finish to your pout.
