When I was younger I used to love “face wash(es)” that would thoroughly clean my skin and leave it squeaking! Little did I know that I was completely stripping my skin and turning it dehydrated in the process.  As a carefree young girl, it never occurred to me to bother if I was using something suitable for my skin or not, “good skincare” was the last of my worries!

One of the most exciting discoveries for me this year has to be Pai Skincare. I have been guilty of switching my skincare WAY beyond the healthy limit and from clear, spotless to reddened and sensitive, my skin has been through everything. That said, a little switch-up with a change in season or change in skin tolerance is definitely permissible and welcome. This skincare line though has changed my fickle ways (well almost)!

No matter how many brands and how many different kinds flood the makeup market, MAC brushes have their spot soldered firmly around the top! I don’t own an insane number of brushes, have a few from different price brackets but the MAC ones that I own are definitely the special ones! They are what I call the “classics”.

I think the purpose of all makeup is to make the skin look like it has “no makeup” and I “woke up”, “walked out” or pretty much “grew up” like this! If my cheeks have a flush, eyes have a twinkle and lips have some color I am sorted. But, the number of products it takes to get these harmless 3 basics right is ridiculous! Don’t you agree?
