My go to sweat-proof concealers for summer

A long-lasting, crease-resistant concealer is a must! Concealer is a must-have for my makeup bag, for me, I cannot live without it – to me, it is more of an essential than foundation and powder because of the number of things it offers for my face; it not only covers up any dark circles under my eyes but it also covers breakouts, blemishes and dark spots to even out skin, while it can also double up as a highlighter and/ or colour corrector. And in summer it’s more essential than ever, especially for the days when it’s too hot to wear a full face of makeup and because of the fact that the days are longer so you need something that won’t move through the day aka sweat off your face.

 These are the 3 reasons waterproof concealers is the only makeup product you need for the rest of your life;

It doesn’t budge

It’ll keep uneven skin, fine lines and dark circles away all day long. Waterproof concealer will keep your eyes looking big no matter how little sleep you’re getting or how active you’ll be throughout the day. Test it out at the gym if you don’t believe me.

Gives the illusion of clear skin?

A waterproof concealer topped with a little setting powder will have everyone thinking you have the most flawless of skins!

Waterproof Makeup Is the New Thing

More and more, waterproof makeup — from foundation and concealer to mascara, blush, lipstick and more — is popping up everywhere as women are looking for cosmetics that will actually stay put. These new formulas will finally allow you to spend the day out in the sun, in the office or out with your friends without having to touch anything up.

The best contour products for W.O.C

The best contour products for W.O.C

Growing up a woman of colour has never been easy, everyday we struggle with our identity and constantly have to be reminded that we are the minority within the western world.

One of the hardest things that we struggle with is finding makeup products that suit our skin tones because at the end of the day there isn’t just one shade of black and we all have different undertones, but it is especially hard to find good contour products.

In all honesty I don’t see why brands particularly drug store brands don’t create contour products that cater for all skin tones because in reality it would give them a more positive brand image as well as increasing their total revenue simply due to the fact that they have a wider audience.

However here are my top contour products for my women of colour;
