Seeing the way the girls at So Loverly come up with their beauty profiles, and Connie too, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and come up with my own beauty profile. This would hopefully make it easier for you to know the condition of my skin, what skincare product I’m currently using and makeup I’m into. This will also be posted as a standalone page, which can be accessed at the top of the site.
This section is subjected to change when I discover a new gem (there’s so many out there; I’m bound to stumble upon some goodies).
