Most people are familiar with lavender as a sedative, a flowering plant that calms nerves, helps with anxiety, depression and stress. What most people don’t know, is that lavender has some beautifying properties as well.
Lavender which is an antiseptic and has anti-inflammatory properties can help with acne, reduce swelling, redness, and even helps with eczema by relieving itching. Lavender also helps with skin ageing by boosting the circulatory system increasing flows of oxygen and nutrients to stem cells, meaning less wrinkles.
I am going to teach you how to create a refreshing and easy facial mist that will help you with acne. This spray has helped me tremendously. My skin feels a lot softer and I have noticed fewer breakouts.
If you’re looking for an everyday makeup palette then theUrban Decay Naked2 Basics is for you. The new palette has more cooler tones compared to its sister, the Naked Basics palette.
The palette has six brand new taupe-hued shades, five of them are matte (Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone) and one of them (Skimp) is a semi-matte shade, an ideal colour for highlighting.
This palette can we worn alone (perfect for a daytime, for school or even for the office) or use any of the colours as a starting point for any look.
I couldn’t wait to play with this eyeshadow palette. I love blending Cover and Primal together for the crease using UD’s double-ended eyeshadow brush and I blend it out with Frisk using a fluffy eye shadow brush. It gives a very subtle smokey eye without looking too harsh.
The UD Naked2 Basics palette retails for $29, and you can purchase it at Sephora.
I took some pictures of the palette and did some swatches, that you can check out in the gallery! CONTINUE READING…
