As soon as I saw images of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario I knew that the palette was a must have for my collection. The last makeup product that I need is another eyeshadow palette, I have one too many already – but the colours looked stunning and I already know that I love the formula of the ABH eyeshadows. I was trying to have a no makeup buying month in October but I just couldn’t resist this palette.
Lately I’ve had a lot more free time to be able to try out new masks and use them on a regular basis. I love having time to properly treat and pamper my skin. My skin has been flaring up a little more as well and I’ve been getting more breakouts than usual so it’s good that I have the time to properly treat these issues.
Recently I’ve been wearing eyeshadow a lot more often. I found with working and going to school full time that I didn’t have enough time to play around with eyeshadow. Now that I’m only working full time I feel like I have more time to spend with eye makeup. This has meant that I’ve had more time to test out different eye shadow bases and primers. I have rather oily eyelids and if I don’t wear the right primer my shadow will crease in no time.
I’ve never had the best luck with stick foundations in past. I’ve always found them to make my skin look extremely dewy or just not give the right amount of coverage. I’ve tried a few stick foundations from the drugstore and the MUFE stick foundation. I didn’t mind the MUFE foundation in terms of the finish but it was difficult to find the right shade. I found it to be a little bit different than their liquid foundations. I saw a lot of hype around the Anastasia stick foundations and I figured I would give it a try.
