I used to be about that leaving random pictures in my mutuals’ boxes but I learnt the hard way. There are exactly 2 people I haven’t seen that I can do that with. God bless you two. I mean after the others I’ve met. If we’ve met, you know the drill.
I’m an undercover noodz sharer. i have fantastic bits and like to share them.
pfffft, you got them soft angular aesthetics on LOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 we should reference the soft angular in the funk band we’re starting lol
You’re too kind but that’s honestly my aesthetic rn. Just soft angular loveliness all around. From my dressing choices to decor. Soft angular till I die!
Yes we should! it means so much, we’d be daft not to reference it.

Anonymous said: Serious skin envy!! That being said, what facial moisturiser would you recommend? Powder also?
Sorry I’m getting to this so late, I was busy writing my dissertation.
Lol my skin thanks you.
Now, I’m no way the most knowledgeable about the skin but what I’m gonna say is what works for me and my skin.
I’ve said before that I always use a moisturising body cream both on my face and body. Now the skin on my face is both sensitive and combination - oily+normal and I’ve tried many face oly creams but they make my skin feel like flames are licking it so I have to go wash them off. Over the years I’ve found that the lotions in Garnier’s 7 days lock or hydra lock line work for me. I like my skin to feel super moisturised so I use the formulas for dehydrated skin. I read that these formulas work by encouraging the skin to produce more moisture? sebum? something. I receive compliments on the softness of my skin from loads of people so something must be working right? And I know my skin is hydrated ‘cos gone are the days when my skin gets super tight if i let it dry completely without moisturising it.
Which brings me to my second point. Whatever moisturiser you use, it’s best to use on moist skin preferably one that has been in contact with warm water very recently. Warm water opens the pores and a scrub will get all the rubbish trapped in it out, you finish off with cold water to close the pores and seal all the clean delicate goodness with your moisturising cream.
A skin care specialist that works in a store (i need to add this as she is not a medical personnel) upon being told about my face (sensitive and combination - even sun screen burns) told me to try the Avene line as it’s good for people with my skin concerns. I will state here that I haven’t tried it so I can’t vouch for the products but they come highly recommended from other people I admire as well.
Sorry I’m a wind bag, you didn’t ask for all that but I love to talk about my skin ^_^
Now for powders, again it depends on your skin and where you’re based. I would assume you mean make up powder so I’ll be recommending make up brands.
I use sleek, Bobbi Brown and Mac on my face.
Often use sleek’s luminous pressed powder to set my concealer on days I don’t feel like looking super contoured but look like I tried (else I use bobbi brown’s loose finishing powder). I then use sleek’s contour kit to set my contour and use my mac pressed powder on the rest of my face.
On my super laid back days, just a dab of my Mac pressed powder will do.
However, two of my closest friends swear by Mac’s Mineralise Skin finish and I will attest to the finish it gives them. With MSF they don’t need to do as much layering as I do just set the face and top with MSF. It’s light weight and kinda translucent so it retains the definitions but gives you a healthy glow.
I don’t know a lot about make up but hope I’ve helped.
