(master-class series 1) how to: clean your makeup brushes.

Last week I stayed with my sister and realised, to my horror, that I forgot my contouring brush. I went to borrow hers (which I wouldn't normally do but she is my sister after all) but was shocked at the conditions of it. She hadn't washed it in a while and it made it soo hard for me to work with it. So in true Dina style, I gave her a little lecture about the importance of washing your makeup brushes regularly. Like I said, not only does it make it extremely hard to work with if they are all caked in products, but it's also very unhygienic! All that bacteria hiding away in your brushes are bound to spread onto your face too. So here are my tips on how to achieve clean and soft brushes!

Are you a #NARSissist too?

BECAUSE I AM. Yes, I got sent this cute little package from Nars filled with two nail varnishes from their latest collection. I was happy enough when I saw that they started following me on instagram, as I've always been a huge huge fan of the brand. Then I got a private message from them directly, and I could have screamed! So I thought I'd show a few swatches for you all and give my opinion on each of the colours.

berry beautiful.

The weather will soon be getting colder and the sky will be getting dark- which only means one thing. No more bright lips, but many many berry shades instead! For me personally, this time of year usually means I'm going back to university (or any other educational institute). And when I'm getting up super early, loading on the makeup (especially eye makeup), is the absolute last thing on my mind. That's when these lipsticks come in handy. Because the barer the rest of my face is, the bolder my lips are!
