“I woke up like this” or My Makeup Issues

To explain what this post is gonna be about is complicated :D So I get straight to the subject. We all have our issues with applying foundation, creasing concealer, cakey powder, uneven brows and so on... In this post I decided to share my issues with you. Maybe you will feel better that you are not alone in it or we all together might find a way to solve our issues. Who knows, however I hope it will have its readers.

Fancy tips: Cherry Blossom

My first post about nails is here! I did this nail design more than a month ago and forgot about it. Of course. I do not remember what exactly I used so I must guess.

This nail design is not my own idea. I got inspired by some random picture I found on Internet. But I could not find it anymore. I painted my nails purple colour and add those little branches in black. Then I made pink dots as centers of flowers. Finished it all with white petals around. Of course, you can choose your own colours and change the whole look :) If you do, please post your picture on Twitter with @IAmJustTellin so I can see it.

What's in my travel makeup bag? Let's see!

      Since it was Easter holiday I travelled home and packed a good amount of makeup. As usually I packed more than I am able to use, but one never knows what one will need, right? So just in case I have more than I need.
      I took a few photos for you with my iPhone (that is all I have here with a camera). So please, bare with me. I have tried my best with taking pictures while my dog has tried to eat my makeup from the floor.
      This is not a review, so if you would like to know more about any of these products, I will be happy to write a post about them.

Spring favourite blushes

      Finally, I am able to write post like this. I never use the same products for longer time so it is hard for me to write favourites post. Yesterday I packed my makeup because I travelled home for Easter holidays. Going through my makeup case today I realised that I have favourites in blushes! I have been using them for past weeks and really enjoying them. So let’s check what they are :)

Stila Poppy, Benefit Coralista, Max Factor Soft Pink, MUA Blossom

Try & Share: Foundation's little helpers

       Firstly, I am really sorry for not posting for almost a month. I have had some family issues to go through and was not in the mood for writing or anything else. From now on I hope everything will be better and I will be back with my blogging and all the things I love. 

Let’s go to primers. I have tried a few of them. I am not a big face primer lover, but I use them regularly. Why? Just because I believe they can help my foundation to look better, to minimize my pores, to make it last longer and so on. I took pictures of primers I have in my drawer right now. Some of them I have already fully used and trashed so they are not available for photos. But I have tried them, that is important, right? Reminder: My skin is dry with small pores. Rarely oily on my forehead.

BENEFIT POREfessional primer (here)

I have never bought this primer in full size, thank god. I received it as sample with my Benefit purchase a few years ago. That tiny sample size lasted me for years. I guess, it speaks for itself. I hated it! With my dry skin it does not work. Or maybe it was not because of my dry skin, who knows. Only primer knows. Once I spread it all over my face, it made tiny flakes on my skin like little particles of primer linked together. Hope it sounds clearly. For $31 I would expect more. So NO for me.
