The 5 Make-Up Brushes You Actually Need

Sure, getting your fingers working is quick and easy, but using brushes will help take your makeup application from amateur to professional. It’ll make application and blending so much easier and look way more flawless. But where do you start? 1. A foundation brush to really buff the product in and blend it together seamlessly. Here’s a tip I learned from watching a Kylie Jenner tutorial: don’t use the brush like a paint brush, i.e. brush strokes, instead use it to dab/buff out the foundation. Regardless of what you think of her, the girl knows makeup. I tried this method and […]

Beauty Essentials for all Ages: 30s

In your 30s, you may have started to notice signs of aging caused by circumstances that can take a toll on your skin, like stress or hormonal swings (due to age, pregnancy, or medications). It’s time to step up your regime from the basics. Take a cue from the 34 year old Beyonce, and get your skin care regime Flawless. 1. Irreplaceable sunscreen If you don’t already wear it every day, start. The sun causes 90% of wrinkles, and preventing them is easier than smoothing lines later on. Tip: Sunscreen becomes even more important following exfoliation as your skin is more […]

Exfoliation literally scrubs off all your dead skin cells, making your skin look fresher, less dry and more radiant. It’ll improve your circulation too, so many women swear by it as a cellulite treatment. It’s also a non-negotiable before applying fake tan (or ridding yourself of an old patchy-looking one). You should aim to exfoliate once a week. It comes down to your preferred method as to how often you should do it – gentle exfoliates can be used up to 3 times a […]
