I have always been very safe when it comes to my makeup. I tend to choose very muted and safe colours, and more than often, I come across as under dressed than over dressed for special occasions. I have this worry of over dressing and looking like a clown somehow; strange, but very real in my irrational train of thoughts. Lately, however, I have decided to make little changes in my makeup kit. I have decided to be more adventurous and venture into colours I have never tried before.
Due to the problem of yucky white film I’ve been getting on my lips, I stayed away from lipsticks for quite a long time—almost a year! But recently, I started wearing them again and I’ve been rotating between two creamy lipsticks from Paul Pender. They’re quite pretty and very wearable and I thought I’ll share my love by giving 5 of them away too. Say YAY?
After noticing the increase in eyelash fall out during the removal of my mascara, I have been on the lookout for a natural alternative of mascara that functions as well as the commercialized ones but without the harsh chemicals. I have tried a few organic brands of mascaras before and found them to be average and a little pricey for their less than stellar performance. But I think I may have finally found my holy grail of natural mascaras in Dr. Hauschka’s Volumizing Mascara.
My eyelashes are relatively long, but over the years they seem to be not so densely packed as I remembered them to be as compared to when I was younger. I’m not sure if I’m just being insecure and paranoid, but it seems that as I got older in age, my eyelash drops easily. This happens when I wash my face or remove my eye makeup. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of me being too rough when washing my face, because I tend to be that. But I’ve also heard complaints of other people’s eyelashes dropping due to certain eye cosmetics they’ve been using.
