How to make your Makeup Last

One of the most common questions I am asked is “How do I make my makeup last?” Long wearing formulas are great and all but for makeup that lasts the whole day a little more effort is required. This tutorial will teach you everything you need to know and every step you need to complete to keep your face makeup in place all day and all night. 

Start off by cleansing your skin. I find regular facial wipes work best before makeup application but a good proper cleanse never hurt anyone.

Skincare Basics: Why you need to Remove your Makeup

Playing with makeup is great fun, there’s nothing like having a buffet full of eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes and eyeliners that you can get creative with, but it’s important you also remember the more serious stuff like removing it all at the end of the day.

Why do you need to Remove your Makeup

Whether you choose to breakup your makeup with a cleansing oil or start the first step in your cleansing routine with a makeup wipe is up to you, but one things for sure: removing your makeup is an essential step that shouldn’t be ditched. Need convincing?

WORTH THE HYPE: Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate
Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Review. Contouring can make your cheekbones appear more prominent, your nose appear slimmer and your jawline more refined. However, when contouring is done wrong it can look more like mud on your face or an orange foundation/spray tan. Finding a good contour product that looks natural on the skin can be a struggle and that’s why I’m head of heels in love for the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Duo. (I have shade intensity one) The contouring shade has the perfect balance of warm and cool tones so it doesn’t look grey or orange, it’s completely matte with not even a hint of shimmer, which is the most important thing for me in a contouring product.  In terms of formula the sculpting cream is beautifully creamy and blends into the skin with absolute ease, but doesn’t fade, cake or oxidize either. The only part of this product I found disappointing was the illuminator, it was a bit oily for my liking and was really just a transparent balm with a bit of shimmer, I prefer my illuminators to be more shimmery and pigmented. Overall I think this product is fantastic and it has become a major staple in my makeup bag for contouring,  I DO think the price is very high for a makeup item but beggars can’t be choosers and if you have the money to spend on this baby, do it.

When applying illuminator to your cheekbones try blending it upwards towards your eyes rather than downwards, this will help to give eyes a “lift”


unrealisticperfection said: What are the best drugstore eyeshadows? :) Im from Australia

Eyeshadow is one of my favourite makeup products, I love experimenting with different shades, textures, finishes and formulas so I’ve tried my fair share of eyeshadow singles, duos, quads and palettes by now and even though I love my high end palettes there are a few drugstore ones that are my favourites…

Is it okay to wash your face with hand soap?

Is it really okay to wash your face with soap? We’re told we need to wash our faces every day, morning and night from a young age, but is it better to skip cleansing your skin at all than to wash with soap? Whether it’s liquid or bar soap are they safe to use or do they really do more harm than good?
