SURVIVING THE HEAT: FACIAL SPF MISTS FEAT. PIXI, BIODERMA & GARNIER


Last year marked the launch of very first facial SPF mist from Bioderma. The beauty world rejoiced, myself included.  I use SPF all over my face and body in the morning and tend to layer up facial SPF. From moisturiser to separate filters, I don't put makeup on until SPF has been applied thoroughly.  You should always re-apply every couple of hours for it to be most effective, even if you're not soaking in the pool all day. It was almost impossible to top up your SPF during the day if you wear makeup, which often resulted in exceeding the safe limits of sun exposure. The facial mist with SPF can be applied over the makeup, meaning no longer having to go without. Today, I'd like to talk about the three facial mists I've tried so far, starting with the SPF Mist pioneer from Bioderma, through the new offerings from Pixi and Garnier. They all come at the different price points, so you can truly have your pick, whatever your budget.

4 STEPS TO LASTING CURLS WITH STYLE FREEDOM


I used to think lasting curls weren't for me. I blamed everything, my hair, my skill, heat devices. Finally, I found the perfect curler and curls were not only possible but also beautiful and long lasting. Recently I have had an absolute pleasure to discover a new drugstore brand Style Freedom so I thought I'll show you the products from a different angle. Instead of a bland review, you get my step by step instruction to gorgeous and healthy curls.

SUMMER EDIT: HIGH-END SKINCARE


We don't get too many summer days here in UK but when they come, it's all about surviving the heatwave. I type this on a hot Sunday evening, eating a watermelon straight from a fridge and I wish I  could sleep outside tonight. I was thinking of post ideas all day and I thought I'll share with you my recent skincare loves, summer edition style. There aren't many this time, because the heat makes me super lazy but few suprised me from the first use.

MERUMAYA EDIT: THE 'NO BULSHIT' QUIDE TO ANTI-AGEING


There are many skincare brands trying to focus on anti-ageing. There are only a few redefining what ageing really means and how not to get overwhelmed by many bullshit slogans beauty industry sells on daily basis. Maleka and her team redefine what beauty feels and looks like and how to be fabulous at any age. Having met the team recently, I'm even more sure about the branding and the idea behind Merumaya. Today, I'd like to talk to you about all the products I've been using and what ageing gracefully means to me.

DEWY FOUNDATION EDIT: TOP 5 FOR DRY, DEHYDRATED & MATURE SKIN


Happy Monday my Queens. Waking up on a Monday morning, I always take longer to do my makeup. I'm still rested after the weekend and I take my time, especially with my base. It comes at no surprise, I love my foundations to have an ultra dewy finish. Lately, I've been opting for some coverage too. I know I know, glowing rarely comes together with coverage, you may add. Thankfully glowing foundation doesn't mean only sheer anymore and you can find a decent coverage and dewy finish easier than before. Depending on what you're after, I prepared a list of five amazing foundations offering medium to full (buildable) coverage. Finding a dewy base that lasts all day is a little trickier and I'll share with you tips & tricks to make it happen. Ready? Let's go! ❤️
