There are certain days in a girl’s life when even putting makeup on can seem like a chore. On days like this, kudos to you, if you can go in public without wearing the slightest bit of makeup… but, until my face gets better (probably when I’m in my thirties), 5 minutes to get my glam on is all I need.
Whether you have a bad skin day or a bad skin life (like me), random pimples, redness and a dull complexion are not fun. To give you a bit of a background on my skin situation, I have pretty much struggled with acne since I was around 12 years old and it hasn’t went away. It is the one thing I am most embarrassed and self-aware of.
It’s weird thinking that this is my first Favourites post… What have I been doing with my life?! While we try and forget about this, here we are, at the end of June, wondering why is time so cruel with us.
Anyway, these have been my beauty faves this month. Enjoy!
The rules of the game have changed. Gone are the times when I used to swear by the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.
I present to you my new holy grail concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (in Light). Yes, I’m totally aware I am approximately 359 years behind and everyone started using this in the Prehistoric Era most probably, but yet here I am, praising it.
It’s finally time for me to go on my summer break, back home to Romania, after a successful year of studying in London – this means lots (with an angry focus on LOTS) of packing. And with me being the hoarder that I am, I do tend to keep stuff that I no longer need (e.g.: “I’m sure I’ll manage one more squeeze off that tube”, or “Maybe I’ll need that one day”). So, it’s time to say goodbye to some products…
Wearing a bold lip sometimes requires courage and self-confidence… or at least for me it does. I’ve always been dreading the red lipstick, maybe because I thought it would draw attention on me and being the centre of attention isn’t always my thing. I also hated the fact that it’s high maintenance, as it needs constant checking in the mirror and reapplying and apparently, that’s too much responsibility for me. Story of my life. Learning how to properly apply lipstick so that it lasts was a game-changer for me.
Everyone, grab your calendars and mark this day: the 14th of May – Diana went out. I know, I can’t believe it either. But what would the average student do when exams are over and uni is finished? My answer would be “Hibernate?” but nope, I’ve been informed that they usually party. So hold on to your hat, because this is a wild one.
Oily complexion, a busy schedule and not enough time – life as a student with a slippery face is hard, no doubt. Especially since yours truly struggles with acne as well, needing medium to full coverage most of the times.
I may not exactly have aging issues, as I am around my 20s, but this product is not only targeted for ladies with wrinkles (even though, I admit, I start having a few around my eyes and lips). However, it is always better to prevent than to fight.
I promised a post of another Lush bubble bar I got, so here it is! But to be honest with you, I looked online for hours, trying to find the name of this one, but it wasn’t anywhere and I apologise! If any of you know how it’s called, I would be grateful! (The lady at the till asked me if I want them labelled but I was like “naah”)
