The Best Green and Natural Beauty Brands You Need to Know about

by Samantha Braddy

Your skin is your largest organ and the one you need to keep in good shape both for the sake of your health, as well as your appearance. Skin shows the overall state of your health, and is a pretty accurate indicator of your lifestyle. Smoking, lack of sleep or hydration, a bad diet and too much sun exposure are likely to leave their mark on the skin. Apart from your lifestyle, the most significant factor is your skincare routine. It’s essential to be consistent and use the best products for your skin. And it doesn’t get any better than natural products.

Update

Hi everyone! I apologize for the lack of posting this month. I’m actually in Jakarta at the moment, I’ve been here since mid-January. If you followed me on Instagram you might have known that I’ve been taking several beauty classes in Jakarta – Microblading, Eyelash Extension (refresher course) and Gel Nail Art. I haven’t had time to upload any new tutorial yet since I’ve been busy going to classes and also spending time with my family & friends.

Anyways, I just want to let you guys know that I will not be uploading any tutorial until I’m back in Canada (beginning of March). I actually did film a tutorial in Jakarta, but for some reason my macbook does not want to recognize my earphones. I tried recording the voiceover using my iphone, but there were just way too many feedback and noises when I was recording. I’d rather wait until I get back to Canada to upload new high quality tutorials.

I do sincerely apologize for the lack of tutorials and posts, but I will be back next month with more contents! Hopefully I can add more than just tutorials in the near future. I’ll try my best to create more review videos as well as nail polish swatches too!

No winged liner for me for this look, but of course you can add a winged liner to the look if you prefer. Anyways, read more about this look below.

My Foundation Routine

Finally! As you might know, I was having some issues with my blog (my web host went down) last week. I do apologize for the lack of post in the blog. Even though my blog went down for almost a week, I decided last week that I still should post a tutorial on my youtube. This tutorial was a request from one of my Instagram followers – she asked me to show her how I do my foundation routine by using liquid foundation.

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial, it’s very simple and easy. You can use the same technique as the one I used in the video for cream foundation as well, regardless of your skin type. May be I’ll share with you guys how I apply my foundation using just foundation brush next time! Read more below to get more tips and tricks regarding my foundation routine.
