BURN

     Burn See, anyone can start a fire, darling, but how are you going to keep it alight? What will you don when it dies down? Just start another one and another and another? Do you have enough tinder, dearest, enough matches in your back pockets? Will you stay and light a cigarette, watch the embers glow as the sparks dance? Let’s roast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate in the open, under a blanket of stars. Stay with me tonight. But do me a favor will you, my love? When you leave, douse me with water, lest I be the cause of a wildfire. Bury me in the sand. Forget me. I will be okay. Just think of the trees. -Danabelle Gutierrez, & Until the Dreams Come Hair & Make-up: The Louise Monique Photography: Studio by The Louise Monique Model: Marix

As a beauty writer, I promised myself that I will only recommend and promote products that I truly believe in. I don’t see the point of promoting something that you don’t actually like, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Giella products are hand-crafted with ingredients selected to customize the perfect product just for you. Products can be customized for allergies including nut oils and butters. She stands behind her products as being the finest in quality, texture and shade selections. All GIELLA products use the most pure ingredients that can  be found giving their makeup real skincare benefits. Giella is based and manufactured in the US but they deliver internationally and all the products are available online. All Giella products are cruelty free, non-pore …

Product Review: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

I know this foundation has been out in the market since forever but as I mentioned before I don’t usually give into hype, I am more of a sure-hit make-up buyer. Why would I gamble my hard earned money to buy expensive make-up to try and there’s no assurance that it’s going to be good. WHY? I try to be a little sensible so I can justify my make-up spending. Plus, I’m a make-up artist and I like using top of the line products on my clients, they are not my guinea pigs whom I’ll try so-so products on. So I was at Sephora the other day and I saw a friend of a friend who works at NARS so I thought it was the perfect timing to get me some NARS goodies. First thing that I bought was the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, obviously I got a little excited about it because I got 3 shades: Stromboli, Syracuse & Barcelona. The shades are all in medium, the reason behind is in my list …
