Natural Hair Routine & Haircare Tips

In 2014 I decided to do the ‘big chop’ which was a very scary and daunting experience for me, but I just had to do it for myself. I needed change and an uplifting one – transitioning from one hair type to another one.

When it was finally done, I immediately thought, okay now what… How do I maintain and look after this new hairdo? What are the next steps to dealing with my new texture of hair? My hair was no longer relaxed and smooth but it was coarse and super coiled.

Current Lip Colours For The Summer

As Summer begins to approach in South Africa it means bright and bold lips will be making a seasonal comeback. It is the season that allows one to rock the sassiest lip colours and make a statement. After visiting The Body Shop I came across the most show-stopping and mesmerising matte lip colours that I can’t wait to rock during the Summer.

I’ve always been a fan of The Body Shop and their makeup, because of the cruelty free policy and how it treats my skin so well. The skincare store has recently launched its first matte lip liquid colours. The range includes 12 bright shades with each shade having a rich creamy colour.

Clicks Face Masks Review and Facial Mask Tips

Taking care of your face is a beauty skill that should come naturally. As we get older simply using water and soap is not adequate enough to maintain your face’s flawless look. With age it has become extremely important to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise the face.

And with Summer just around the corner having a natural, dewy and glowy skin is the new beauty look of the season. I recently tried out some face masks from Clicks and I must say these are going to be my favourite products for the Summer and all year long. I doubt I’ll be using facial sheet masks anymore because the result is obviously not the same.

Strobing (Highlighting) 101 Tips

I am no makeup artist, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m the worst when it comes to makeup. I still know how to beat my face when necessary and with the practice  I must my makeup game is slowly improving. However,  I must admit I’m still very faulty and I have never really been able to the master the whole contouring technique. Alas, makeup artists and vloggers have come to our rescue and showed us that you don’t have to slay by knowing how to contour. Instead strobing (highlighting) is the new and best way to get those facial features popping. I must admit strobing is way better than contouring for me, because it is a more natural and stunning way of highlighting a person’s gorgeous facial features.

“So, what is strobing? Strobing is actually not a new technique; it’s been around in the makeup game for many years—you might know it as highlighting. Strobing is basically highlighting to the extreme and letting the highlight define your facial features without the use of bronzer or contour. The main goal for strobing is to concentrate a highlight on the highest points of your face, where light would naturally hit, to create a “glow from within” dewy, radiant complexion.” – Elaine Barnett (The EVERYGIRL)

Winter Skincare Routine And Tips

A change of season often leads to the change of doing things from the way you dress, to the activities you do and to how you treat your skin. Winter days mean making sure that you keep the skin and face hydrated at all times. I know Winter is almost coming to an end and I should have shared this secrets way before, but it’s never too late. Winter will be back again next year and these tips will still be very much relevant.

My skin type is what I would consider  being a combination/normal. Meaning it is both oily and dry, so because of the cold it means on some areas, in particular my face I need to moisturise it more than I would during the dewy Summer days.
