My eyebrow feathering/microblading experience – Part 1

Hi guys,

Thank you for popping by my page. Today I want to tell you all about my eyebrow feathering (also known as microblading) experience. After so many years of wanting to get them done I finally did it – waking up with beautifully defined brows is an amazing feeling (#iwokeuplikethis). Jokes aside, one thing I wasn’t blessed with is naturally defined, full brows – I get it from my mama! We both have very sparse brows, with lots of gaps and very fine hairs. Therefore, I was constantly finding myself shaping and filling them in..and let me tell you brows definitely define the face! Whether you’ve got a full face of makeup on, or not wearing any makeup at all brows are the deal breaker..they complete the look. I think my mum actually gave me the courage to finally get them done after she had her brows microbladed when we went overseas recently. I then realised how much of a difference it actually makes. I’m so pleased to say that I no longer need to touch my brows and I can get ready within 5-10 don’t understand what this means unless your a mum and always fighting against time because you have 31248247 things to do. The sooner I can get on with my day and attend to my baby the if you want to know all about my experience read on..

3 simple ways to treat skin irritations & reactions.

Hi guys,

It’s been a while since I came to you with a product review or a skin care blog! But I’m back and am hoping to become a lot more consistent with my posts (I’m sure you’ve heard that one before…but I promise) so watch this space and please show your love by subscribing or leaving a comment down below.

Today, I wanted to talk about skin irritations and reactions and how to treat them. I’ve recently come to the realisation that there is still a huge number of people out there that suffer from sensitive skin and even if you don’t, you may find yourself reacting to a product from time-to-time because it contains an ingredient your skin doesn’t agree with. Or, your name may be Betul and you may be a skin care hog and test every product under the planet until your skin says ‘I’ve had enough’ and breaks out into a reaction – yep, that would be me! Regardless, skin irritations become more apparent in harsher climates and weather conditions and when your beautiful city decides to give you winter weather in the middle of spring – thanks Melbourne! You may also find your skin becoming more sensitive as we get older because our skin naturally gets thinner and produces less collagen and elastin. Nevertheless, keep reading if you want to know how to treat skin reactions and irritations with the following 3 simple steps.

My top 3 base products for a light-coverage.

Hey all…

Base is everything! That is all. If you’ve been following me for a while you would already know that I am big on ‘the foundation’..and when I say foundation I mean what’s beneath the makeup – YOUR SKIN! No matter how good a product is, it will only look as good as your skin does. So taking care of your skin will give you a beautiful canvas to work on and allow you to layer your beauty products. This is probably why I choose not to wear foundation on a daily basis. I don’t mind going for a light coverage on most days and exposing my skin. So whether you’re like me, and you don’t like a heavy look, or you just want to go lighter on some days, keep reading. Today, I will share my current 3 favourites for a beautiful light coverage.
