My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Blogtober Day 4: My Skincare Routine Night

Monday, 6 October 2014

Skincare is something that until a couple years ago was something I rarely did. I'll admit it, my idea of "skincare" was taking off my makeup in highschool. Going into University I started washing my face more frequently, which has benefited my skin greatly.

Recently, my skin has freaked out. Over the past couple of months I have not been able to reach the elusive clear skin. My chin especially has been home to a number of small colonies, and it is finally starting to clear up, maybe because I've started taking my skin care a whole lot more seriously.

I start by removing my makeup with the Sephora Cleansing Oil. I pump a couple drops into my hand and rub it onto my eyes and face, then rinse with warm water and use two cotton rounds to remove all the makeup and dirt from my face.

I use the Olay Fresh Effects Shine, Shine Go Away cleanser all over my face, it has small beads in it and really cleans my skin.

I love the Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water. A couple spritzes of my face is really soothing, it's a great refreshing cooling feeling.

I've been sampling the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. I pour a small amount onto my fingers and gently rub it into my skin. So far, I'm impressed.

This bottle has been used for over a year, you need a tiny amount, I use about 2 pea sized pumps, and it's so moisturizing. It's the Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture cream. It has a satin finish, and is really great.

My sister told me a fact about your skin starting to lose it's elasticity at the age of 21, so at the age of 21 I went out and bought a sample of the L'Oreal Youth Code line. I do really like this eye cream, the metal applicator is cooling, and if I had a long night I use it in the morning as well to combat bags. It's really easy to use and very moisturizing.

I was recommended the Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment by a friend, and have to say it's a keeper. After using moisturizer, I apply a small amount of this with my finger to any spots on my face and then wash my hands. It has really contributed to clearing my skin.
