Priming with The Ordinary

Why do we use makeup primers? We mainly use them to prep the skin for any makeup we want to apply on top.

NYX Powders

NYX Powders

Although I do tend to have quiet tight, dehydrated skin I still could not go without even a small amount of setting powder over my foundation. I feel any powder products I put over my foundation (bronzer, blush etc) do not blend well if I don’t set my face first. I am a huge fan...

Of course I had to try some. My parched skin really loved the idea of a cleansing butter as this just...
