The Baseline

I thought it might be a good idea to have a page where you can see the blank canvas, so the speak. This will give you an idea of my usual skin, eye and hair colouring.

My skin type is normal to oily on the face and dry, especially on the legs. Go figure! As you can see, I have pigmented lips and shadows under the eyes which are typical of my ethnicity and don’t fade even with the best eye creams. I have a few freckles high on my cheeks but they are not discernible in this picture. I wear glasses most of the time and they often leave impressions on my nose bridge. My complexion is medium with olive/ yellow undertones. Depending on the time of year, my foundation shades are:

  1. NARS Sheer Glow – Stromboli
  2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk – 6.5 Tawny
  3. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light – BA40 Beige Ambre Desert
  4. MakeUp Forever HD – #123 Desert
  5. Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick – 4.5 Warm Natural
  6. Mac Face & Body in C4

My hair is thick, dense and straight and needs a wash every 3-4 days. It also doesn’t like to be up or tied back or it complains by way of headaches that can turn into migraines. This is a blessing in disguise because I am lazy and do not run a brush through my hair most days. By extension, I am just as loath to doing my nails, waxing my eyebrows and applying body lotion.

That should cover it but feel free to post any questions I can help with. *meow*
