Beauty and Skincare Hacks

  1. When you’re travelling: 

When travelling, I always feel like I forget something in my makeup bag. Usually it’s not an essential product for me, such as mascara, howeversometimes I seem to forget my favourite eyeshadow palette. If you’ve forgotten your eyeshadow palette but have remembered the brushes, you can use bronzer and highlighter as eyeshadow.

For £56, I was able to get 7 of Tarte’s best-selling products averaging at £8 each.

The 7 products I chose were:

I chose Tarte’s ‘Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation’, which retails at £33.» >
