Get to know me tag: beauty version

What do you prefer with foundation coverage? Medium and luminous coverage.

Favourite high end brand? Probably MAC or Too Faced.

Is there a brand you can't stand? *cough limecrime cough*... was that the wind.... Any brand who doesn't have integrity or who won't help customers where they know they're in the wrong.

Do you avoid certain ingredients in products? Not really. I'm very lucky to not be allergic to anything (that I know of).
