Ahh, decisions decisions. To go matte or to go shimmery? I definitely went through a phase with each, and I’ll tell you why.
When I was younger, I was attracted to the Benefit Cosmetics packaging because it was just so darn cute! And all of their blushes are really shimmery. But when I started to get pimples around grade 10, the shimmer just wasn’t working for me anymore. It tends to highlight your pimples and large pores, and most of my acne was on my cheeks! I wanted to avoid anything that would draw attention to it so I gave up on the shimmer blushes for a while.
I switched to matte blushes because I felt that it hid the pores and pimples more. But recently my skin has been doing A LOT better and I’ve given shimmery blushes another go. I tried Benefit’s Bella Bamba again the other day and I fell in love! When your skin is smooth it just adds that extra level of glowy-ness that we all crave in the summer. I am so happy I’ve found my love for shimmery blushes again.

So as you can see I’m clearly addicted to blushes LOL. I need to stop myself at Sephora from buying more because I’ll never go through all of these in my lifetime!
This blog has been very skincare heavy I’ve noticed, but I can’t leave out my passion for makeup either! So I’m going to start a series posting every relevant makeup item I have and that I use. I’ll have a post for face products, blushes and bronzers, lips, lashes, highlighters and everything in between. I always love snooping into other people’s makeup collections just to see what they have, and so I thought why not do the same for you!
Today I’ll start with my face products:
Maybelline Fit me Loose Powder in Shade 20
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in Shade 2w light warm
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Shade 20
Tarte Amazonian Clay Loose Powder Foundation in Shade light neutral
