Today, I decided to share something a little different on the blog.

I have been delving in to the world of makeup and I cannot wait to share what I have learnt so far.

But first, I would like to talk about skin care.

Thing is, it is important to ensure that your skin is healthy and supple before applying any makeup. I learnt how to select, sample, buy and apply makeup through watching various YouTubers. Early on, I noticed the heavy emphasis these ladies made on the importance of taking care of your skin first so that any makeup added applies more flawlessly.

I also learnt that when my skin is healthy I end up using minimal makeup since my natural skin is healthy and I do not need much added on to it.

So, without further ado, here are some of my current favourites.

Photography Venue: The Bedelle 

The Bedelle is a boutique luxury guest home located in the suburbs of Runda, Nairobi. The guest home is ideal for small, intimate and cosy private events of up to 100 pax.

{The Body Shop- Body Butter in Mango}

I use this generously all over my body (with the exception of my face). It is highly moisturizing, creamy and beautifully scented.

{Yves Rocher- Hydra Vegetal Moisturizer with SPF 25}

I love Yves Rocher since their products are botanically based, which means, more organic ingredients and less chemicals. This moisturizer is creamy, has a light scent and very hydrating.

{Origins- Active Charcoal Face Mask}

Once a week or every fortnight, I treat myself to a facemask and this has been on heavy rotation. I apply this mask for 5-7 minutes and once it is dry, I wash it off. Voila! Instantly rejuvenated skin!

{Origins- Plantscription Youth Renewal Face Oil}

This lightweight face oil is fortified with 20 organic oils that helps hydrate the skin without leaving you feeling greasy. I use two drops at night just before going to bed.

{Yves Rocher- Hydra Vegetal 2 in 1 Hydrating Micellar Water}

I love this micellar water since it doubles up as a toner and a makeup remover! Good value for money.

I will work on a step by step skin care regimen post soon, so look out for that!

Thank you for reading and let me know which skin care products you are currently using.
