Hitting Pan, A Make-Up Movement

Most people refer to hitting pan as seeing the packaging (metal pan in cases of pressed products) at the bottom of their product meaning it’s getting close to being done. Project Pan was started to encourage others not to waste their product (they do have an expiry see) before buying more. This is a great […]

I’m a makeup artist, not a skincare specialist (or dermatologist) but I’m fairly confident in identifying skin issues when I meet a person based on how their skin looks, feels, or how it reacts to the products I apply. I am […]

Essena O'Neill Quits Social Media

My Thoughts on: Essena O’Neill

While I commend this young woman on speaking out and bringing the news that everything you see should not be believed, I also find it sad that so many prior didn’t already figure this out? ‘Don’t believe everything you see’ is a phrase that’s been used since tv was invented. She happily accepted the money and fame […]
