Anybody can admit that cleaning makeup brushes is not the best task, in fact we try by all means to avoid it. However, dermatologists recommend that we clean our make up brushes often to prevent bacteria that can lead to breakouts. That’s why today I’m going to be sharing with you how to clean your make up brushes the easy way with products you already have at home.
Hey love what’s good?! As per usual Clicks had their Beauty Fair and all my money went with it. Clicks had a 3 for 2 sale on selected beauty products where you could buy 3 products and get the cheapest of the 3 free. Here’s what I bought..
Ponds has recently come out with three face masks that can change your skin care routine. As a person who’s continously looking for face products that can help better my skin, I decided to put the Ponds Serum Masks to the test.
Hey guys what is good?! If you know and follow me then you know that I haven’t been one for face care and buying all sorts of different products for the face but I recently wanted to jump on the train and see what more I could get from my skin. Today I will be reviewing the Johnson even complexion face care set.
Hey guys welcome right back!! Today I will be reviewing the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation. I bought this foundation last year(2016) when I thought I would be doing my own makeup for prom and to say I am more than impressed is an understatement. This foundation has allowed more and more room for improvement for my foundation skills and has always got me looking like a doll at all times.
The foundation is truly full coverage that just a little bit goes a long way which also means saving a whole lot of product and it is light weight that your faces completely feels like there is nothing on your face. Unlike other foundations you wont feel like there is an extra layer on your face. I also love the fact that it has no texture. Your face still feels the same but a little more smoother.
The foundation does in some occasions oxidize as well as transfer but its not something that is a huge problem because a little powder can easily solve that. I love that in its natural state the foundation is matte and gives off that natural look, non-oily look. The foundation does have SPF 10 which can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage would be that the foundation will protect your skin from the sun and the disadvantage is that your pictures will have some flash back when there is flash involved however because it is only SPF 10 the flashback is not that much.
However the foundation is really great. It lasts the whole day and no problem with it moving around and starting to crease. I bought my foundation for R550 at Edgars which can be a little pricey but for the amount of time the foundation lasted, I am not complaining.
So overall I would recommend the foundation especially to people who want that full coverage flawless looking finish. The foundation will not disappoint and will honestly give the best looks.

Hey guys what’s good? Welcome to the first and ultimate Question and Answer!! I have always wanted to host a Q&A but have always been scared to go through with it because I didn’t have much influence. But you know what, We have been doing this for two years and I feel like we are ready to take this on!
Answer : High school was honestly a very fun experience but at the same time something I could say I learnt a lot from. I think most of the things I deal with generally in life and how I deal with them is based from the experiences from high school. One thing I could say I learnt from high school is to be calm and to analyse something from all angles before acting on it. You will never gain anything from making a noise about something you don’t understand.
Answer : Yes I have and to say it was tragic is an understatement. Life broke us apart and God decided to take him to heaven before we could even fully learn of each other.
Answer : Natural how? If you mean makeup wise then the highs would be, your confidence rises on a high and you feel put together. Literally no one can put you down when you know your makeup looks good however the low is that when you don’t have makeup on you feel insecure kinda. You get used to seeing yourself with no blemishes or dark spots that when you see them you feel naked almost.
Answer : I honestly don’t know! I haven’t been consistent with a particular makeup brand that I really can’t choose.I’m more of the girl who’s tried one of each brand through one product you feel?
Answer : Ambition. I like a person who wants more, who won’t accept less but at the same time a person who acts towards his ambitions. If you have ambition and you show qualities of a hard worker then honestly you’ve copped me because I like linking with a person whereby we can push each other to do more.
Answer : Both
Question : What is sex?
Here’s what Google says..
Answer : In five years time I see myself in another country doing content creating permanently and professionally on all platforms. I actually see myself focusing more on the television and music industry and doing more and much bigger creative work.
Answer : Firstly, I love the way and how I deal with tough situations. I’ve noticed how I never fail to bring myself up from tragic situations and I actually respect myself for that. Another thing I love about myself is how big heated I am and how I always look to help others even though I don’t benefit and lastly what I love about myself is how I always find something to make the day. Whether it’s by joking around or doing skits my days are always fun filled and full of laughter that I sometimes can’t deal.
Answer : Lipstick! Girl I don’t know but I always have to have some type of lip product on my lips. I feel like a lipstick will always put a natural or a beat face on a higher level. So I always have a couple of colours in my bag.
Answer : Firstly I actually wanted to do YouTube(I still do) as a way to reach out to people about the things I loved but YouTube needed more resources that I didn’t have and I felt as though blogging was easier to do plus I had everything for blogging so I started blogging instead.
Answer : Lol this actually makes me laugh. Honesty girl I don’t think there’s a way to get him back without you actually telling him you like him especially since you’re the one who left him. So talk to him and tell him how you feel. But sþince you say he blocked you maybe it’s sign to just move on from him.
Answer : Yes

Hey guys what is up?! Can I get a round of applause for the back to back posts this week?!(thank you, thank you) Today I am coming at you with a fashion travel blog post – how to look good when you travel publicly. It is one thing when you travel with your family and friends at the comfort of your own vehicle but it becomes another HUGE thing when you travel with people you don’t know because you’ve got to ditch those dirty socks and slippers into something lookable. So today I will give you tips and tricks to looking bomb when travelling publicly.
When I travel I forget that I’m actually travelling and go all out because I feel like looking good is always a main factor. If I look good and feel good then I’m gonna be popping the whole way. Also there is going to be other people and who knows your future husband could be sitting right next to you so always look good!
No, I don’t mean wearing glitter skirts and lady gaga heels I just mean don’t tell yourself that you are travelling. Actually, cancel that out. Take it as if what if someone decides to take a picture of you. So gout there to actually make a statement and a few eyes turn.
Okay when I travel with family and friends I don’t like wearing makeup because I don’t want to be worrying about eyeliner smudging or touching up my lipstick. But that’s only when I’m traveling with my family. When I’m traveling publicly I like to step it up! You never know if you might just meet your future husband. So the tip is to make sure your face looks presentable – whether its by putting on a bomb ass beat face or well moisturized and hydrated face that’s up to you but make sure you look good! No eye crusts allowed! If you are gonna go for the natural look putting a bit of mascara and eyeliner won’t hurt and make sure your lips are always moisturized.
The tip here is to be comfortable (especially if you’re gonna be on the road for a long time) but also stylish at the same time. An easy way out would be wearing track suit pants and a matching sweat shirt or wearing leggings and an over the top shirt. However to step it up literally make an outfit that you would wear when you know you are gonna see your enemy but I would say a portable outfit is always the best to avoid having too many pieces and just have a jacket that will level up the outfit.
Here are some outfit Ideas.
I think after looking at you, people always look at your bag. This is like the overall factor to the conclusion. So don’t be that one person with a ratchet looking bag that just screams no, have a legit bag that puts you on the mark and that you’re not ashamed of and don’t mind taking a picture with. Some cool bags to look at are MAHI leather bags.
Some people seem to think that travelling is an excuse to not do hair, – its not! I’m not saying come with a Rihanna hairstyle I’m just saying make sure your head looks presentable and put together. In fact do an easy hairstyles such as a bun or even presentable corn rows because you are gonna be sitting for a long time and you can’t be worrying about curls staying bomb. The tip here is to not be lazy with your hair because you could be looking good (outfit and face) but if your hair is not presentable then that’s gonna put the whole look down.
Traveling comes with so many issues especially travelling by buses or taxies so always be prepared. Don’t have silly things like the weather putting you off the mark. The weather might just change so have a bomb ass jacket ready on the go. When it starts getting cold we don’t want to see weird jackets coming out make sure it’s a jacket that I’m gonna want and that goes with your actual outfit.
List of things to make sure you’re equipped.
- Hat or beanie
- Makeup wipes
And that is basically it! Looking good is how you present yourself on the outside but also on the inside. So make sure you look good guys. Put away that thought of I DON’T CARE and actually care not for anyone else but for yourself too. Otherwise happy travelling guys! Thank you for reading and I hope this post helped someone out there.
For the past few days I’ve been wearing my concealer as foundation and to say I was SHOOK was an understatement. My LA Girl PRO HD Concealer moved me from levels to levels.
I’ve been having a shortage of foundation for the past few days and like a hustler I thought if my concealer can conceal then why not conceal this face?
I use an ordinary cheap concealer that I bought from Dischem for R30.00 – LA girl PRO HD Concealer and let me just say there’s nothing ordinary about how magical it works. For a cheap product like this the coverage is beyond amazing and lasts the whole day.
I’ve been getting so many comments about my makeup when wearing this concealer as foundation that I’m even considering buying a whole lot of them and using them as foundation.
The concealer is so lightweight that you even forget you have makeup on and I’ve realised that a little can go a long way which is good because then the product will last longer. I also love the fact that the product has the little brush thing on top because you can evenly distribute the product around your main areas.
The problem I had with the concealer is that you need to set it with powder because you makeup will shine and come off as oily but that’s nothing you can’t handle. Also the concealer will leave stains on clothing or anything you touch with your face so to control that keep some powder with you and be a little more careful.
Another thing I noticed was that you will look dead or atleast i did without any contour or eyeliner so don’t skip those steps. I didn’t use to contour so I’m currently using an eye shadow colour as contour and mixing that with some blush.
However overall the concealer does wonders. It will last you the whole day and you won’t need to touch it up. I would actually rate it a 9/10 because my makeup game has moved from level to level with this concealer. I am hoping that the LA girl foundation that they have out is as good as this because I would love to try it out and it would be a favourite if it was as good.
Thank you for reading and I hope this post was helpful to you.

Hey guys what’s popping? Today I’m coming at you with a DIY. Over sometime I have been creating my own lipstick shades because when times are tough you gotta make it work with what you have. Today I’ll show you how to make your own nude lipgloss/lipstick.
What you will need.
- Colourless lip gloss or vaseline.
- Concealer or foundation
Finding a nude Lipstick that works for your skin tone can be a big job and at times very expensive too. So I decided to come up with my own way to make your own from at home and at almost nothing.
- Step 1 : Using your brush or beauty blender apply the foundation/concealer that you use on your face to your lips. Don’t apply too much just enough that you can see that your lips have changed colour.
- Step 2 : Add Vaseline or your lipgloss to your lips and just keep rubbing your lips together to get it to the right comfortable consistency. I’d say add enough.
And that’s basically the easiest way to come up with the perfect nude colour for your skin tone. You will need to keep adding more vaseline or lipgloss as time goes but this shouldn’t be a problem.
To add a bit of colour. Add a pink lipstick( I used my Revlon Matte Balm in the shade 205) to the colour just to come up with a pink nude but this shouldn’t be necessary. Thank me later!
Anyway thank you for reading. I hope this post was helpful and that you enjoyed reading it. Help someone else by sharing and let’s all beat this beauty life.
