Since this is a Beauty & Lifestyle blog, there will be articles regarding skin care, hair, makeup & all the other things in between. So here’s info regarding some of that good stuff 😉 :
Hair length and color : Medium, Dark Brown.
Chemically treated hair (bleached, colored, permed, Brazilian blowout, etc. ) : No.
Hair density: Medium.
Hair texture : Thin ( fine strands, prone to tangling) .
Hair pattern & category : Wavy, 2A type S.
Skin characteristics :
Combination skin type ( determined by a cosmetologist).
Typical enlarged pores in T-zone, prone to blackheads with rare hormonal breakouts. Since I’m in my early 30’s now, focused on anti-aging products.
Hooded eyelids, warm skin undertone & a light to medium skin tone. Not a lot of visible wrinkles – yet 🤣 .
Most products are used in a course of 2 to 4 weeks, sometimes even longer, depending on the type of product ( e.g plain moisturizer to a treatment serum with vitamin C , or retinoid etc. ). Only exception to this rule is makeup, as we can evaluate products after several uses.
I used to post ingredient charts via COSDNA website, though not anymore, as results aren’t accurate, and I also don’t want to spread and/or feed people’s paranoia ( I’m also allergic to the word “toxic” ).
When writing posts from the “Nascence of a Brand” series, I do extensive research ( as an amateur can), with reference details at the footer, so you can also check them out.
Cameras used for taking pictures so far : An old digital Olympus summer vacation camera and now smartphones (it’s easy and convenient, just point and shoot + I ain’t buying a DSLR – have you seen the prices?? 😲 they 💸 💸💸 hell to da 🙅♀️ I have bills to pay 😅).
Photos are edited with Picsart or Google Snapseed ( yup – No PS 🤣) – all apps are available for free download at Google/Windows/App Store 📷 .
That’s it, If you have any questions, feel free to ask! 🙋♀️
