Beauty Diaster from Lush

A few weeks ago, I dropped by Lush and purchased Dark Angel. I have been using it for about a week and all I can say is this product was a waste of money. It is marketed as cleanser but it is more of an exfoilater that leaves a heavy grey residue. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. File this under beauty disaster and a complete waste of money! Since I'm too cheap to throw it away, I did the next rational thing and repurposed it as a foot scrubber!

Total purchase cost: - $15.81

Joey Maalouf Shares His Skin-Perfecting Secrets

Better late then never. I kinda loathe this phrase, but it applies to me and my relationship with makeup. I never cared enough to experiment with makeup in my teens and here I am now in my early 20's experimenting! Hopefully I can bypass the awkward makeup phrase with these few tips from makeup artist Joey Maalouf that he shared with The Zoe Report.

These are the tools:

Tip 1: Use A Sponge For Even Application
Dot cheeks, forehead, nose and chin with liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer and blend with a sponge to ensure an even application. Never pour foundation directly onto the sponge.
 Tip 2: Powder All But Your Cheeks
Apply powder on your forehead, chin, under eyes and around the nose. Avoid cheeks – you want to keep a bit of dewiness on skin for a healthy glow.
 Tip 3: Add A Highlight To Eyes
For a gorgeous luminosity, apply a silvery eye shadow on the inside corners of the eyes on top and bottom.
 Tip 3: Add A Highlight To Eyes
Set the look by blending color with a flat eye shadow brush.
