The Top 5 Foundations you need to check out (Luxury & Drugstore): Review

A beauty junkie can never leave out base makeup especially when he/she is heading out of the house, even to run errands. For me, I have oily combination skin, very acne-prone as well, which makes it hard for me to find a foundation that suits me. Most of the foundations I tried in the market do not last on my skin but thankfully after years of experimenting, testing and trying, I managed to shortlist my top 5 favourites!

Price is never an issue for me because it’s all about finding the best foundation for my skin type. Interestingly, my five choices here range from the luxurious to the pocket-friendly ones.

“I WOKE UP LIKE THIS” with LA VIDA™ Deluxe Creative Brows Embroidery Service: Review

Your brows are the most prominent features of your face apart from your eyes. We already know that a good pair of brows can frame the face but having the right brow shape also opens the eye area and helps to create a more youthful look.

Achieving that #browsonfleek look can be quite a daunting task, especially if you are rushing for time in the morning before school/work. What better way to save your time and effort to get those perfect brows on 24/7 than with semi-permanent makeup? Semi-permanent makeup procedures have taken over the beauty industry by storm recently, and it’s almost as if every girl I see has jumped on the brow-wagon! Well, to no surprise, I HAVE TOO with the LA VIDA™ Deluxe Creative Brows Embroidery Service. I can finally spend more time with my pillows and bed in the mornings!

Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, is a new and popular technique that gives you semi-permanent, natural-looking brows. It’s a procedure that utilises a micro-blade (essentially a very small blade) to create tiny incisions with loaded coloured pigments that mimic eyebrow hairs. This means that once you have gone through microblading, you will also experience the convenience and beauty of having your #makeuponpoint. Looking perfectly polished before you head out can never be as easy as this, and well, you can finally boast and say, “I woke up like this!”

Think weightless, buildable and SUPER-PIGMENTED. I think that’s enough to shove all your current favourite lipsticks aside (for now).
