If you have been following me or know me for a while you know that I have been struggling with skin issues for the longest of time. I have had so many ups and downs with my skin, not only with acne and hyper-pigmentation on my face but chest and back. It is so annoying and definitely lowered my self-esteem.
First video on my YouTube Channel for the year. In the video I share with you a look I wore over the weekend and I call it my ‘Red Lips Glam’. GRWM stands for Get Ready With Me, these videos are very popular on YouTube and I love creating them. This look was created using three shadows from the the Morphe 35O palette. This palette is very versatile and a lot of different looks can be created using it. This is a simple look that does not have too much shadows used and is easily to blend. Do you have it as yet?
On the day that I filmed I also took some beautiful pictures outside of my make-up look. Below I have added some pictures showing you how it looks in natural day light.
I had to get this video filmed and shared before this year came to an end. My BIGGEST INSECURITY – MY ACNE SCARS. For the longest of time I have been dealing with having acne then it scarring and becoming dark marks/hyper-pigmentation. It happens because I squeeze or pick at them and even due to the fact that I do not treat them well at times. There is a lot of times when my skin has been picture perfect (hasn’t been so recently) and then times when it gets even worst then how it is now.
In my new video I share with you how I cover my acne scars with make-up. Of course I do not wear make-up every day for long periods every time, but I do when I go around people I do not know, to school and work. When I am finished with a long day the first thing I want to do is to take of the make-up once I am home! [Relief] Also I usually keep one or two days of the week to not wear make-up and just let my face breathe.
Enjoy the video…

Finally got myself a cleansing brush! I know I am not the only one suffering from ‘acne’ and hyper-pigmentation but sometimes I just feel like I am ALONE and Just want it to disappear….Having acne breakouts that then turn into dark marks on your body can be a confidence killer! But I am still on the run to find what works for me. My goal is to have more than 50% of my hyper-pigmentation gone before December. I want to be confident enough to walk around with a bare face that looks fine (to me) without make-up on. However, enough about my worries on my skin issues let’s get back to what I bought myself. & another day I will share a detailed blog post all about my skin worries/issues.
Since last year I have been eyeing the Clarisonic, however, I was not ready to pay about €200 for it. But when I came across a video where NikkieTutorials was showing what she used to clean her face & she had a 70% discount code I had to check it out!
The Spin for Perfect Skin which can be ordered on VanityPlanet and it is originally priced at $100 but with the 70% discount code from NikkieTutorials it came out to $30.00 and $9.00 for shipping. Total = $39.99 or €36,87 isn’t that amazing?! Adding to that the shipping to the Netherlands was fast as well, within 5 days it was here.

I got myself one of the LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics masks. All of LUSH’s items are HANDMADE, 100% VEGAN and they do not TEST ON ANIMALS (How great is that?). This brand has so many amazing items to choose from and they all smell so pleasant! You should definitely check out their store. For the past few weeks I have been OBSESSING about my skin because honestly speaking I deal with hyper-pigmentation and breakouts now and then. So I have been researching and looking for new things to help control and clear these problems.
The name of the item I got is Mask of Magnaminty, the amount of product is 125g and I purchased it for €8.60. This mask is a deep cleansing face and back mask. Two of the main ingredients are china clay which is great for acne prone skin and fresh peppermint that gives your face a tingly feeling. I love peppermint or tea tea oil in any item I use on my body or hair. It gives a very fresh clean feeling.
