Beauty Breakdown Series - Fixer Upper

Hi Mavenz!

I like to call my method of application and the tools I use to achieve the look the beauty breakdown.

When I get the opportunity to relax and really enjoy doing my makeup, the results are always favourable. 

I absolutely love minimal. Clean even skin, a wash of colour on the eyes and a luscious pair of falsies. Lips? Moden Cosmetics of course!

So, here's the beauty breakdown for this look, which I created in about an hour. It can be done in a shorter time frame of course but then, why rush a good thing? Some people get massages, some people go fishing; I make my face up. Boom!

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...
