  1. How to make mineral makeup stay on all day?

    Mineral makeup just like any other makeup will stay put depending on the way you prepare your skin! Mineral makeup is great because the formula will work with any skin type that you may have. I know that oily skin sufferers worry about the formula separating on their face throughout the day as I have this problem myself. Dry skin sufferers know it’s a struggle to find foundation formulas that won’t leave you with bits of skin flaking off your face and leaving blemishes uncovered because of uneven application!

    First of all you need to establish what type of skin you have, some people have combination skin and do not notice, making foundation shopping a pain. Knowing your skin and preparing for the day ahead will determine how long your makeup lasts. If you suffer with dry skin make sure to exf

  4. Skin Care Tips To Instantly Improve Skin

    When I was growing up I wish I would’ve taken better care of my skin. When I started wearing makeup I thought that a simple facial cleanser every night would do the job but it really didn’t! In today's blog I’m going to be sharing some of my skincare tips and tricks with you to achieve clear glowing skin that everyone wants!

    My first tip for you is always double cleanse after removing your makeup! Using a makeup wipe or a cleanser once will not get rid of 100% of your makeup and dirt from that day. Double cleansing is the only way to be sure that all traces of makeup, dirt and oils are removed from your pores and the surface of your face. For more details on double cleansing go and check out our blog Should I Be Double Cleansing?

    My next tip is something that really changed my makeup application, exfoliating. 2-3 times a week use a gentle exfoliating scrub, What an exfoliating scrub does

  5. How to find your perfect foundation shade!

    One of the biggest struggles within the makeup world as we all know is finding the right foundation shade. No one wants a big orange line along their jawline and a pale white neck, that is a no go! Isn’t it just the worst when you think you’ve found the right shade but you end up looking like a pale ghost? I myself am very fair skinned, meaning I always go to the lightest shades but end up looking as white as a sheet! But it doesn't end there, finding the right formula is tricky too. Some foundations can make your skin look flaky, oily or patchy. Many people who are just learning about mineral makeup may dread the thought of finding their right shade because it’s hard enough finding liquid foundation shade, so wouldn't it be just as hard or even harder with loose powder? Well it’s not, I find it a lot easier to find a shade that matches my skin tone perfectly with the help of NCinc’s colour guide.

    Having oily skin is the worst! I suffer with oily skin and it has taken me a long time find the right products and tips that help me keep my oily skin under control. In this blog I'm going to be sharing my tips with you!

    My first tip is simply washing your face. It's that easy, at least two to three times a week you should be using a gentle exfoliating scrub to wash your face. The exfoliating scrub will remove any oil and dirt that are clogging your pores, also the scrub will remove dead skin from the surface of your face leaving your skin smooth and clean. As well as exfoliating it's important to use a gentle face wash daily to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy especially on the days you won't be exfoliating!

  8. How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes!

    How often do you clean your makeup brushes? You should be cleaning your makeup brushes thoroughly at least every two weeks! In this blog I'm going to tell you why it's important to keep your makeup tools clean and how to correctly wash them!

    Cleaning your makeup brushes plays a bigger part when you are applying your makeup than you might think. Reusing unwashed makeup tools can leave you with an uneven application, even causing acne break-outs and blackheads from the oils that still linger in your brushes. As the inside of your makeup sponges and brushes hold so many chemicals and bacteria from the products you use that you can't see.

    Just like using fake beauty products, we all know they can have terrible effects on your skin, well it's the same as using dirty brushes. I bet you will think twice about reusing unwashed brushes on your skin! So how can you clean
