I had originally wanted someone who was actually vegan (i.e. not me!) to write the post as that would make the most sense: someone who knows the best brands, who has more information about parent companies, and could answer questions.

Skincare Shake Up: March ’18 Edition

Tips For A Flawless Base: Primers

Whenever I talk about my rosacea on social media I am guaranteed to get questions about make up. I post photos of my bare face (like this one) next to photos of me in full make up (like this one) and people sometimes can’t marry the two in their minds. So I wanted to share my tips for a flawless base even when you have a far-from-flawless face!
