do you have any food allergies?

I tend to go for cheaper brands of make up as the more expensive, like cinique (cant remember how to spell that, sorry) cause large facial boil type spots, and in my mother and sister, lip and eye swelling. Although hyper allergenic, this seems to mean little with regard to reactions in our family!

perfumes are never sprayed on skin, but on clothes in winter, in summer on mid to ends of hair, this has a dual purpose of highlighting your hair!

i wouldnt wear any eyeshadow for a long time, as skin will be more sensitive there.
i use vasline to remove eye make up, its gentle on skin.

I dont wear make up everyday either as thats a sure fire way to end up flakey on the face iyswim.
