I'm so excited to announce that I've opened an Etsy store! I've been thinking about opening an Etsy store for years, so hooray for me for finally getting round to it.
I thought that having my own custom palette would speed up my morning routine, so that I would have all my basic eye and cheek colours in one place. If travelling, all my essentials would already be in one palette, so I wouldn’t have to take as many products with me. Sounds like a good idea, right? The problem was, most of my favourite products were not designed to be put in a palette...
One of the (very few) benefits of having tonsillitis is that I've had the chance to read more. As a teenager I used to get through a book a week fairly easily, but times have changed since then as I no longer have as much free time. But I knew that was going to change when my mum gave me an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas.
Being rather pale, I've often struggled to find foundation that's pale enough for me. Over the years I’ve got much better at swatching formulas in stores and waiting to see if they oxidise, but every now and again I still come home with something too dark to use. Because of that, foundation mixers are an essential for me.
