I’ve never had much confidence playing with pigments. I mean, how do you use pigments? I hate the fact that it goes everywhere when you open the case and it doesn’t get on your brush for application!

Don’t confuse this brand with Urban Decay who produces the Naked palettes.
The alarm rings at 6am on a weekday. You drag yourself out of bed and start to get ready for work – brush your teeth, wash your face, shower, get dressed, put on your foundation, brows and.. when you step back you realize that you have successfully hidden your under eye bags and blemishes and redness and all sorts of colour on your face. Yikes! Looking a bit tired and flat here. That’s where the blush and bronzers come in for a quick pick-me-up. Betty-Lou Manizer by TheBalm Cosmetics is one of those pick-my-ups.
Who loves the look of chapped lips? Well, I don’t really care how it looks since I don’t look (or rather can’t) at myself 24/7. But I certainly don’t like the feel of it!

On days where I feel that my lips need some loving, I use EOS Lip Balm.
If you’ve got acne-prone skin with plenty of breakouts, concealer probably feels like your best friend. For me and my acne scarring, concealer definitely is my best friend. I’ve been testing out a concealer by Benefit – Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer.
The key to a bold lip is a good lip liner. The reason I say that is because it is not really attractive when half your lipstick has disappeared. Personally, I find that a long lasting lip liner helps my bold lip last longer.
