60’s Mod Inspired Look

I felt a jolt of inspiration when I stumbled upon this image of Twiggy, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try to recreate that mod look from the 60’s. I also thought it was appropriate, being the first day of spring! These looks typically played with lots of pastel tones, so I immediately thought to use the shade ‘Isla’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Palette. However, in hindsight, I wish I would’ve used a matte shade instead. This look definitely took me out of my comfort zone, and it was the first time I actually made a real attempt at a cut crease. I’ll admit, it was a little difficult given my confusing eye shape, but I think it turned out all right! Check out the video if you’re interested in seeing how I achieved the look.

REVIEW | L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion in W5.5

Asian beauty products have made some of the most innovative products in the beauty industry for quite some time. From BB creams to cushion compacts, many of these have crossed over to the Western side and are dominating the business. Unfortunately, a lot of them don’t really cater to individuals with darker skin tones, so when I found out that L’Oreal created their own take on cushion foundations by making the True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation, I was all over it. After all, L’Oreal impressed me when I tried their version of BB creams, so I thought that this could also be a hit.
