I always use a makeup sponge to apply my foundation but I recently started watching a bunch of reviews of silicon applicators (and how bad they are) and got a bit inspired.

I recently tried L'Oreal's new temporary hair colouring spray in the shade turquoise - it's supposed to be a 1-day hair colour that washes out which also shows up on dark hair.

Facial Skin Care Basics

I'm lucky that I've never had issues with acne, although I do still get the occasional spot.
