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!

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.
