Mask times are precious relax times and “Me” times, and I make sure that I indulge myself in it every day for at least 20 minutes. A “mask-time” a day, keeps stress at bay! Be it stress on the mind or on the skin, you can really take away the stresses with just 20 minutes of zoning out while you treat your skin. While masking is essential, it is even more important to choose the mask that best works for your skin.
I’m on for hydrating sheet masks almost every night, except nights where I feel that I need some skin detox. For nights like these, I reach out for the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask, which I call, a miracle mask for my skin.
As a beauty blogger, I must say that I didn’t start playing with makeup at a very young age. In fact, my venture into these cosmetic products started when I was around 20-21 years old. When I first started, like any other beginners, I wasn’t very good at it, especially perfecting that flawless winged eyeliner.
After getting the perfect wing, I went into the playful world of eyeshadows. Perhaps it’s because I have that artistic flair, I was pretty good at eyeshadow application for a beginner. I began to get a lot of requests for eyeshadow tutorials and hence, I decided to include a pictorial for a neutral everyday eye makeup at the end of this post!
Well, let’s look into the makeup products you need (in my opinion) if you are just starting out dolling yourself up!
The year 2014 has indeed been an eventful year for me. Through this year, I experienced several things that made me grow as a person, including falling back in love again (and cherishing what I failed to), graduating from school, travelling solo (kind of because I was exploring Sydney pretty much on my own for the most part) and learning how to travel with my family now that everyone has grown up. Not forgetting the fact that creating @paradeoflove
made me explore my interests more and made me new friends too. I’m thankful for the opportunities that came by as well, allowing ParadeOfLove
to grow further. To sum up, 2014 was nothing short of amazing 🙂
Anyway, here’s a round up of my 2014 Beauty Favourites – a highlight into the products that I have been using and loving for the year. The products may or may not be launched in 2014 because this is a round up of my personal beauty picks for the year.
We’ll start from the face products, going in order of a typical makeup routine, shall we? 😉
