5 things, beauty blogging taught me about beauty

 One of the best thing about blogging is that we get so mush information and learn so many things, it's just amazing. Today, I want to share with you 5 things I have learned last one year and I believe, blogging  was the main reason for that:

Without blogging, I would not even know that there was such thing like an eye brow kit, (LoL), I'm not kidding. I was surprised, when I found out how many different kind of eyebrow kits are out there:

        Urban Decay Brow box  __ Here             Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Brow Studio' set __ Here

I believe, I would not be able to learn about highlighting technique, if I was not blogging. Even now, I am not an expert at highlighting but I can definitely do better makeup for myself than a year ago.

I realized how important it is to use eye and face serums  in everyday skincare routine. Before, I would not even bother myself to purchase them.

                  Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Lift Perfecting serum   __ Here
                  Estee Lauder  Advanced Night Repair Eye serum  __  Here

I learned that a good primer can really make a difference in anyone's makeup look. Before, I would just use my day moisturizer with SPF factor, and then I would apply some liquid foundation and powder. Now, I always use a primer after my day moisturizer, before apply my liquid foundation. 

I learned that not only quality of  makeup products matters but also the tools we use.

I know, it's been a week I haven't post anything__ first, it was so hot here, I couldn't focus on anything but on AC, LoL and then, choosing a new Blogger template for my blog took me 2 days; finally I purchased this one. I hope you will like this new design.

And,  back to today's subject:

    1. Thank you so much. That means a lot to me. xx

  15. Did you change your blog design again, Nina or my eyes is playing tricks on me? I agree about beauty tools, I didn't own any makeup brushes in the past and now I have about 20 which is still very little. I think the one thing that I learn most about blogging is photography, it's not perfect but it's slowly getting better.

    1. I know, my habit of changing my blog design every 3 months or so is getting out of hand. LoL, I just purchased the new blogger template Shireen. I hope, it looks better. And photography, it's so important for bloggers. I would love to be able to take better photos. You are definitely improving you skills, Shireen.

  16. Eyebrow kits are amazing! I just started shading in my eyebrows and I'll never go back :)

Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF 40 Sunscreen review

Happy Wednesday lovelies, After a little breack I'm back to blogging and I want to show you guys this Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF 40 .
You may remember I was so disapointed with Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (you can read about it __ Here) and I'm so happy I found one that I can  at least, use. It's probably not the best primer on the market but with the proper foundation it can work . The label claims:
"Now enriched with SPF 40, this lightweight, oil-free formula enhances radiance and extends the wear of foundation for an all-day rosy glow. A new yellow-based shade, Mimosa, provides sheer coverage to help visibly correct the appearance of shadows and unevenness."
