Hi  everyone! I have another blogging post today! I have been trying really hard recently to improve my blog photos. A lot of it has to do with lighting, but I think the props and the layout of your photos also make a huge difference. But getting props can sometimes be expensive!

Below I share some of my favorites I've found, and please share in the comments your favorite affordable props!

I think many of you would love to try some NAnshy brushes because they are 100% vegan, cruelty-free and PETA registered.

Lorac Illuminating Highlighters in 'Starlight' & 'Moonlight', and Buildable Blush in 'Tinge' | Review + Swatches
Happy Sunday everyone! Today I wanted to share with you a review on a range of products I've been using recently. On my blog I really like sharing my thoughts on more 'unknown' products. People tend to talk about the same things, but I love trying new products and sharing my thoughts on the blog. I feel like most people know about Lorac as a brand because of their shadows, but I've been using their blushes and highlighters recently and have really been enjoying them. I have their Illuminating Highlighters in 'Starlight' & 'Moonlight', and their Buildable Blush in 'Tinge'

Hello everyone! For today's post, I am going to be sharing my Minimal Makeup Routine. I'm sure many of you have a routine very similar to mine. There are days, whether it's for work or school, that you want to wear makeup, but might not have the time to apply a full face. Or maybe, you just like a look that truly is 'minimal' and seems almost as if you are not wearing any makeup.

Spectrum Brushes | 4 Piece Contour Face SetHello lovelies! I have a super exciting post to share with you today! Spectrum Collections was super nice and sent me the 4 Piece Contour Face Set* to try. I was intrigued by Spectrum Collections as a brand because they are PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) registered and vegan free. These are things that I don't particularly look for in brands, but it's definitely a positive, and great for those of you who exclusively look for PETA and vegan products.

Lorac Unzipped Palette | Review + Swatches

Lorac Unzipped Palette | Review + Swatches
If I had to pick my favorite type of makeup product, it would probably be palettes. Especially eyeshadow palettes! I just love the idea of having everything in one product, and each palette just looks so different from one another. That's how I justified buying the Lorac Unzipped Palette. So many people having been raving about this, but I never thought it was a palette I needed in my collection. I have 2/3 of the Lorac pro palettes, and that was good enough for me. But when  I swatched this beauty at Ulta, the pigmentation was so amazing, I knew I had to own it.
