You know that song "diamonds are a girls best friend" well for me the lyrics change to "makeup is MY best friend" haha not literally.. but over the years makeup has evolved moreover an art form.
There are now specific ways of applying makeup from what shade of shadow you should apply to your crease, to what you should use on your brow bone and what highlight would complement your skin, I find it fascinating how makeup can change or alter a persons features. Makeup for me does wonders although my mum constantly nags at me and tells me not to wear so much, I can't! I feel comfortable with makeup I feel.. INVINCIBLE, and makeup is essential to my daily routine, I don't wear makeup everyday but when I feel like I need to I add that contour when I'm looking a bit chubby I'll do it... Now im not saying that everyone should wear makeup if they feel uncomfortable, I'm saying wear it if you can't bare it
I never used to like eyeshadow but ever since I learnt how to apply it I grew fond of it my current favourite eyeshadow palette has to be the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette this palette is my go to shadow palette I used it as a base for my foil shadows and as a day-to-day nude shadow look I am ever so greatful to my BFF Neda who got me this as a birthday present she sure does know how to give great gift.
My next essential is the Olay (and no its not just for old people) beauty fluid I apply it morning and night just to give my face that moisturised feel and extra softness especially living out in the desert.
My final essential is the Labello fruity shine lip balm stick, I apply it to my lips morning and night to keep them soft and hydrated and it had the most fruity smell and I love it.
If you have any beauty essentials be sure to let me know via the comments or any other source of social media
