I ❤️ Makeup Summer of love Triple Baked Bronzer

Hi everyone, welcome back


This is called the Hot summer of love combines three beautiful bronzing shades, high-quality, originally executed design of a package in the form of a heart. Bronzer has a shimer, good in application and shading, perfectly refreshing face.

This is my favourite bronzer at the moment ! This gives me a healthy bronzed glow without looking cakey or orange. Also as it’s a baked formula it blends naturally into the skin and has a subtle luminous effect which I love.

When you swirl the brush around the whole product, you get a beautiful warm rose gold highlight shade, which absolutely complements every skin tone.  It also looks perfect used as eyeshadow …

Mac Concealer – Pro longwear & Select cover-up

Hi everyone, welcome back

Concealer is an essential part of any makeup routine, it hides dark circles and skin imperfections …..  There are billions of concealers out on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are going to work the best for you. MAC has a legendary reputation in the make up world and it’s assumed that they make quality products.

Here are two of my favourite concealer from mac;

Mac Pro longwear concealer – This is a fluid concealer that provides full matte coverage for up to 15 hours, with a comfortable matte finish. Gives a smoother flawless looking finish on skin, helps to conceal flaws, spots, under eye  circles and skin discolouration.

Mac Select cover up concealer – A liquid camouflage-like formula that brightens dark areas, erases spots and evens skin tone.  This concealer can be use anywhere, face or body  to camouflage the skin, with a medium coverage and a matte finish….

Using the right concealer can help you hide your imperfections. Opt for a shade that’s one lighter than your skin tone and apply the concealer first before any other layer of makeup. To help completely cover stubborn blemishes or dark spots…. 

When properly applied, concealer can work wonders, as well as enhancing your beauty.  

What is your favourite concealer ?

How to choose your foundation

Hi everyone , welcome back

The foundation is the base for all makeup. Getting it right is important.

One thing that I have learn is that you should pick a foundation that is at least 1 shade lighter than your skin tone.

Whether you’re using a liquid, powder, or stick foundation, it all begins with a colour check.  When you do a colour test on your skin choose either your jaw line or your neck to apply the colour to, make sure you wait a few minutes for it to dry, as the colour can change. Sometimes the colour can turn pink, or slightly orange after drying. This is why many women end up with the wrong colour.

IF YOU HAVE NORMAL SKIN, your foundation choice may range variously from tinted moisturizer to mineralised bases. Just choose the one for you depending upon the coverage desired and the occasion.

IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN, pick a hydrating or oil-free moisture formula. Most foundations have a time-release system that can continuously moisturize for up to 11 hours.

IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN, opt for a water-based or oil-free formula and use powder.


TO CONCEAL UNEVEN PIGMENTATION, look for a full-coverage formula. Cream-to-powder varieties are the best for you.

When choosing a foundation

According to skin-tone: It’s preferable to try your shade in full day light, while not solely depending upon the lighting of the cosmetic store you’re buying the product from.

Light– For fair ivory skin tones

Medium – For light medium to beige skin tones

Tan – For slightly darker complexions, including golden tan to olive tones.

Dark – For deep, rich complexions, including medium – brown to dark tones.


Hope this post help some of you who are wishing to incorporate foundation in your makeup routine .

Have a great weekend everyone

Thanks 😉
