  1. Well done on reaching 100 followers! Must be a great feeling xx

  2. Thanks Tia! I am so excited :) Can't wait to put the prize package together too, I love giving presents! <3

  3. Really good job with the blog Steph!
    I am really interested in learning more about Skin Care.
    I wear make up a lot but it would be nice to know what makeup works best for oily skin or make up on the go.

    I'm not a slave to my make up but when I wear it want it to last. Any brand/product suggestions? Maybe you can write about it.

  4. A really good make up writer I like to follow is Kevianno Guerrero. He's on my writing team at you should check him out.

  5. Thanks Ellen! I will have to check him out :) For oily skin you want to stay with matte products for coverups and foundation... stay away from anything that says "luminous", that means shiny! Use a translucent powder too, that helps with keeping you from looking like your makeup is caked on, and keeps the shine down. Also, for makeup to last you MUST have layers... a base is a MUST. I recommend Photo Finish Primer by Smashbox, it sets your skin and smoothes it out so you have a fresh palette to work with. You also should use a good primer for your eyes, I use Primer Potion by Urban Decay... awesome stuff and they are having a 20% off sale now :)
