How I Take Off My Makeup

Ways I take off my makeup-

1. Clarisonic Cleansing Brush 

I use the garnier micellar gel cleanser and I use one pump on my brush and it removes all of my base makeup. I have to use a cotton pad and micellar Cleansing water to remove my eye makeup. 

2. Clinique Take The Balm Off Cleanser 

I used a small amount of product to get all of my makeup and it gets off all of my makeup. The oil breaks down all of my makeup. And I use a makeup wipe to remove everything and I wash my face. 

3. Simple Cleansing Wipes and Micellar Cleansing Water

I only use this method if I’m feeling lazy or I’ve had a late night. I use the wipes all over my face, neck and eyes. Then I use a cotton pad with the micellar Cleansing water and I clean it all over my face, neck and eyes.

Cranberry Makeup Look Using the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette 

How I created this Cranberry Eyeshadow Look-

1. Primed my eyes with tarte Shape Tape Concealer and set it with beauty bakerie so the eyeshadows blend nicely.

2. Used 2 transitions shades in my crease. The third and fourth shade in the second row.

3. Then the fourth shade in the fourth row, I added that shade to my crease. To deepen the crease.

4. I added the fifth shades in the second and third on my outer v to give my eyes dimension. I then blended it altogether with a clean blending brush.

5. I then used a synthetic flat top Eyeshadow brush and applied the last the shade all over my eye lids. And used a crease brush to blend altogether.

6. On my Brow bone and inner corner of my eye I applied Rodeo Drive highlight there.

First Impression- Dior Skin AirFlash Spray Foundation 


DIOR revolutionises makeup with a spray foundation that goes on as light as mist thanks to a unique diffusion technology. One sweep of DIORSKIN AIRFLASH Spray Foundation provides an instant sensation of freshness; in just a few seconds the skin tone is perfectly even with a radiant, surprisingly natural finish.

You get 70ml of product. 

It comes in 9 shades, in my opinion I think they should cater to different skin tones. 

My first impression-

I applied the foundation with a beauty blender. I spray the product onto the beauty blender. 

This foundation offers medium to full coverage. I built to full coverage. 

Powders blend on top of the foundation really well. 

Through out the day- the foundation didn’t break up anywhere. It didn’t cake up. It lasts about 8 hours maximum. 

I’m the shade Honey. I think that shade is a bit too neutral for me. 

But the foundation itself is nice, gives me a natural finish. 

And I like the spray. It’s quick and easy to use.  

The downside is the price, but I found a website that sells it a bit cheaper. 
Honestly I would not re-purchase this foundation because of the price. 
Where to buy- Escentual
