Spring is the Time for a Rebirth.

Shu Uemura's final collection before his passing in December is this new Spring Mode Collection, named Rebirth. The inspiration for Rebirth is that of nature blooming in Spring, with colors very vibrant and alive. And the collection is beautifully accented with an abstract image of a flower blooming in the spring, drawn by Mr. Uemura himself.

Makeup Primers.

I have a strange relationship with makeup primers.

When going for a long day of makeup, I make sure to take the time to do the extra step. But for an everyday, I guess I am lazy.  I think I must not have found the right makeup primer for me.

My mission over the next few months wil be to try and find a primer that I love, on that helps my makeup go on more smoothly and makes my makeup last all day. I will be hunting some down!

I did find a nice feature over on Total Beauty where 7 primers were tested. I think I might use that as a guide, at least to begin with! 

Any suggestions?
