I have always enjoyed reading, but the past decade or so, I developed an interest in makeup, so much so I did a course in makeup artistry and became a MUA. I enjoy creating content more these days and having a talent for writing, I have come to fuse together all my favourite passions for makeup, creativity in makeup videos and writing reviews on makeup and skincare products. Good makeup application and the overall results, goes hand in hand with great skincare, so I have discovered. I had a period of mild acne due to stress, certain food intolerances and so I embarked on a journey to find what skincare works well for my skin type. Although I found skincare products that work well for me, I am still continuing this journey as I love exploring and trying out new skincare products especially budget friendly skincare and I am pleased to see True Skincare is easy on the purse’ strings. Particularly the brand boasts of natural ingredients that's beneficial for the skin, body and cruelty free.
