Today I want to share with you 5 of my favorite life hacks! They are not scientifically proven nor am I claiming to be a doctor or a specialist. I just want to share my personal experience about couple of health related problems I have ran into and found some great and simple solutions for. Don't hesitate to let me know in the comments what you think about them and if you have more to add to this list, feel free to life hack away!

Shortly after reviewing the Shaka Innovative Beauty Blush, I received an email from Shaka's PR team asking whether I were interested in reviewing some of their new products. Since Italian makeup and fashion have always been well appreciated, I thought this was a great opportunity to share this beauty brand with you on my blog. Shaka Innovative Beauty is an affordable drugstore makeup brand sold at OVS, Upim and Coin. I've been familiar with it for quite some time as I spent 4 years living and working in Italy. I decided to start with reviewing the Shaka Innovative Beauty Concealer Sticks first. Want to see more Shaka makeup? I did a 'What's New At The Drugstore Makeup Unboxing' here.

Following up on the article where I talked about 3 low budget face primers, I wanted to continue with affordable eyeshadow primers. Primarily, eye primers that I love but with 3 completely different formulas. Whatever skin type you might have, there is a great drugstore eye primer in this post for you, that actually works!

Ever since Essence Cosmetics released their longlasting lipsticks back in 2014 I've been hooked on their lip products. The quality is outstanding and unlike any other lipstick formula out there, I'm a big fan. This year Essence has launched yet another new lip addition to the collection: the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lispticks. They retail for €2.39 and have 8 different shades available. I purchased nr 2 Perfect Match and nr 8 It's a Statement. Let's have a look!

The past few weeks have been very hard. My appetite is gone, I'm distracted, forgetful, anxious and lack motivation. I haven't been answering my phone calls and have been ignoring emails. I wake up in the morning and I'm happy, I have breakfast, I shower but then as soon as I have my clothes on I wonder 'why?', followed by an intense and overwhelming sadness. I'm ready for the day and I have no purpose, no goals and absolutely no will to be a part of what is life.

If you were to ask me what I define to be makeup and beauty heaven it is most definitely Boots. I shopped at one of their drugstores for the very first time 2 years ago when I travelled to London and I've been ordering from their international website ever since. They always have great beauty deals going on and the shipping costs are not at all bad. This time I paid €11 and had my order within 5 days. Boots has so many beauty products that are not available in Belgium so I'm always very excited when I do my online shopping. I mostly use the site to stock up on products I love so I thought I'd show you what I got this time. Enjoy my Boots haul!

Just as it is important to use a primer before applying your foundation, to smooth out and prep your skin, so is it important to prime your eyelid before creating an eyeshadow look. Essence Cosmetics released a new 2in1 Eyeshadow & Primer for a longlasting, brightening and flawless finish. They have two different shades available: a white base with a yellow undertone, called 01 Nude Beige, and a pink base, called 02 Nude Rosé. Let's have a look!

Just in case you missed it, Catrice added a whole bunch of new makeup to their cosmetics range and I have tried every single product that was on my wish list! Down below you can find all of the makeup I purchased, and have reviewed, from their new 2016 Fall/Winter collection. I decided to combine everything in one blog post so you can have a better overview of the new Catrice makeup and maybe find something you missed previously. Enjoy!

Shaka Innovative Beauty is an Italian makeup brand by a drugstore called OVS where I recently went shopping whilst on a trip in Milan, hence the International Beauty & Makeup Haul I uploaded on my Youtube channel. It's an affordable cosmetics brand that has products ranging from lipsticks and lip glosses, to eyeshadow palettes and even makeup brushes. I've known Shaka for a while but this is the first time I've ever tried a product from them. I purchased a Shaka Blush in the shade nr 11 Nude. Let's have a look!
