MASK OF MAGNAMINTY | STOPPING ZITS IN THEIR TRACKS













September has been a whirlwind sort of month for me. Weddings, dinners, parties, appointments. For a person who complained about the lack of excitement in their life, this month completely threw me off guard with just how busy my days have started to become. Not complaining though as I've had a grand time in these past few weeks. Though my skin doesn't seem all that happy with my suddenly-eventful life.

CAUDALIE ORGANIC GRAPE WATER SPRAY

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.

HIGHLIGHTER ON FLEEK | MARY LOU KNOWS WHATS UP


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.
