My morning skincare routine

Given that my skin has been getting a lot better recently I thought now was as good a time as any to tell you about my current skincare routine.
What's important to keep in mind here is that no 2 skins are the exact same and you should always look for a routine that works for your skin. What works for me might not work for you, so don't be dissapointed too quick. Moving on from what I just said, I do find it helpful to look around what other people use so that I can find new products to try.

Maybelline Better skin foundation

I bought this foundation a few months ago, but I hadn't gotten round to trying it out yet because I got to wrong shade. Yeah, it happens. But now that it's winter and my skin has gotten a lot paler, I've been able to wear it. 
You know what. I really hate that! Whenever you buy a foundation at the drugstore you kinda have to guess if the color you're picking out is gonna be the right one. I hate that there is no way to test out the color.

Maybelline Brow drama

I love eyebrows. They might be my favorite part of doing make-up. It's just that they make such a difference. It's true what they say, eyebrows really do frame the face. 

Of course everything starts with well groomed eyebrows. I'm not saying you need to start plucking your eyebrows like crazy, but just get rid of the strays and shape them up a little. 
If you're thinking about drastically changing the shape of your eyebrows, definitely get it done by a professional. If there's one thing I learned over these past few years it's that you NEVER touch your own eyebrows.

Physicians Formula Happy booster blush

Well what can you really say about a blush? I'm finding it difficult to find the right words to describe this blush, but I love it so much that I feel like I need to do a quick post about it.

Rimmel Fix & perfect pro primer

I always feel like Belgium gets a little forgotten when it comes to beauty and make-up releases. Like, for example, the Rimmel fix & perfect pro primer. It's been years since I first learned about this product and I've been looking for it ever since. I hadn't been lucky until very recently when I came across it in the drugstore.

Benefit advent calender

Let me just come right out and say it.. 
This was not worth the money!! Seriously, I got so pissed off about this advent calender.

If you followed my blog during blogmas then you must have noticed that I was getting irritated by the products I was getting. I was hoping they would improve, but they didn't. I mean, look at what I got and tell me. Do you thinks these products are worth €100? I certainly don't.

December favorites

So, obviously I suck at doing Blogmas. I'm really sorry you guys. I really wanted to make it work, but with it being the holidays I've been really busy. But it's a new year now and I'm ready to start up my normal routine again.

So let's start of this year with talking about my favorites from last year. I discovered a whole bunch of new products in december and I'm excited to share them with you.

1. Lancôme Dreamtone 
If you read my November favorites then you'll know that I absolutely adore the MAC prep+prime moisture infusion serum. Sadly, I ran out of it. Instead of going out and buying a new one, I decided to use up what I had and that's how I discovered the Lancôme dreamtone serum. I bought this a while ago as it promised to reduce dark spots and acne scarring. But once I started using my MAC serum this one kinda dissapeared to the back of my mind. It's a shame really, because it really is a great product. It's really pricey. I think I paid about €76 for it, but I would buy it again. I'm noticing such a difference in my skin.
