Trying to find the perfect foundation can be stressful and overwhelming. Walking into Clicks or Dis-chem swatching foundation after foundation only can become frustrating. Sometimes what looks great in-store can quickly be a different story five hours later.
Here are my top foundation recommendations that are super light on the skin and create a second-skin finish, while still providing enough coverage to hide dark spots.
Self-care has been all over the place these days and why shouldn’t be? There’s honestly no harm in wanting to take better care of yourself. The purpose of self-care is help improve your well-being from the inside out. So while you focus on your mental health, why not pair it with indulgent pampering of your outer self for an overall well-being.
Here are four ways to take your at-home pampering to the next level without having to make a super expensive trip to the spa.
I am no makeup artist, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m the worst when it comes to makeup. I still know how to beat my face when necessary and with the practice I must my makeup game is slowly improving. However, I must admit I’m still very faulty and I have never really been able to the master the whole contouring technique. Alas, makeup artists and vloggers have come to our rescue and showed us that you don’t have to slay by knowing how to contour. Instead strobing (highlighting) is the new and best way to get those facial features popping. I must admit strobing is way better than contouring for me, because it is a more natural and stunning way of highlighting a person’s gorgeous facial features.
“So, what is strobing? Strobing is actually not a new technique; it’s been around in the makeup game for many years—you might know it as highlighting. Strobing is basically highlighting to the extreme and letting the highlight define your facial features without the use of bronzer or contour. The main goal for strobing is to concentrate a highlight on the highest points of your face, where light would naturally hit, to create a “glow from within” dewy, radiant complexion.” – Elaine Barnett (The EVERYGIRL)
You know when you apply your makeup and it is just on point, but then you don’t have setting spray to keep that radiant look throughout the day. Well I decided to make my own makeup setting spray, so I can save money to buy more makeup. I did this by reading different articles and researching what works best and what doesn’t. I finally found a method that I think works well which I’ll be using for as long as I am wearing makeup.
The secret ingredients are just roses and glycerine, I have been using my home-made makeup setting spray for about two weeks now and I must say it works like any other setting spray. I was rather impressed with the results because my makeup did last for a while on my face. So I have decided to share this newly home-made, life-changing DIY with all you beautiful people. Even if you don’t wear makeup on the regular, you can use the spray as a mist to keep your face hydrated in all seasons.
One rose ( preferably from a garden.)
A spray bottle.
*For my South African readers you can find glycerine at Clicks stores for only R15.95 and you can use glycerine for almost anything, this little bottle is pretty magical.

After the MAC Vibe Tribe collection launched in the USA in mid-May, many make up lovers have been patiently waiting to get their hands on it and it is almost time. The collection is expected to hit South African and international stores this week. Although the name of the collection and the main inspiration behind the make up collection does not sit well with me, I am nonetheless excited about some of the products.
