Flawless Foundation Routine With NO Primer – Here’s Exactly What I Did

From time to time I love to try out something new and all the time when it works, I share my findings with you. You are very welcome :).

WHAT IS THE BEST BEAUTY SECRET?

Agbani Darego is one of my favourite people in the whole world. For one, she was once a Miss World and secondly, she has an effortless style with class and grace.

The weather is gone colder now and this means just one thing: dryness of the skin. And if there is anything I do not joke with in all seasons, it would be moisture.

Your skin is so youthful” 🙂 That made me smile. You can see the video HERE with more comments.

Without further ado, today, I bring you a beauty haul + some skin care TIPS for this season .

However the kind of surgery I will be discussing in this post is cosmetic surgery. I haven’t had one before and a lot of you will be surprised to know that I am not against having cosmetic surgeries. The thing I will be most worried about though will be choosing or finding a plastic surgeon

4 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE TRYING OUT OR BUYING A NEW FOUNDATION

Whether subtle make up or dramatic one, good “foundation” is the back bone of any kind of make up. To get that flawless looking skin even if you don’t have one, you need a foundation.
