Some Nudes in a Season of Reds

IMG_0256

A few months back I wasn’t into that whole nude lip look, let alone lipgloss. But somehow I’ve really gotten into enhancing my lip shape and making it look as best I can in the most natural way. Whilst I do still have my issues with the uber sticky “last-all day” lip glosses I do enjoy a smooth hydrating balmy sort of lipgloss nowadays and it seems that as time has gone by the makeup industry has really grasped that whole “smooth buttery lipgloss” thang.  Continue reading

So when I actually decide to get up that 20 minutes earlier to put my face on, a lot of the times I just can’t decide what products to use.

That’s probably one of the reasons I skip makeup on lazy exam days. Just being so overwhelmed by the variety of brands and colours, my half-asleep behind can’t wrap it’s head around that.
But there is the odd occasion when I do need to look acceptable or I really want to feel pretty for once.

Now I’ve heard many Beauty Gurus talk about this gem, but living in Germany (It’s impossible to get a hold of most beauty brands over here. grr!), I did not have the chance to try it out.

I’m talking about Tartes Amazonian Clay 8H Blush in Exposed of course.
