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.

JOURNEYSPEAKS QUESTION AND ANSWER.

Journeyspeaks qna

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?

Answer
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 : No and no. My family has never actually been the type for pets so I grew up not liking pets. I like people with pets but I don’t think I could ever handle one.

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

WEARING MY LA GIRL PRO HD CONCEALER AS FOUNDATION.

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 R30.00LA 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.

DIY NUDE LIPSTICK. GET THE PERFECT NUDE SHADE.

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.

  1. Colourless lip gloss or vaseline.
  2. 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.

Method.

  • 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.
