DIY : winter avocado face mask

Everyone knows , during these harsh winter months your skin needs that extra boost ! Avocado's are rich in fatty acids and make a great natural moisturizer for dry or unbalanced skin. It's very simple to make and has great effects.  The only downside is , it doesn't keep at all. Give your face a quick wash , and apply! 

Combine all ingredients into a blender and mix well . Let the mask stay on for 5-10 minutes or until it feels like it is drying or tight. 

1/2 ripe avocado
1 whole egg
1 Tbsp Greek yogurt
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)

review : MAC's Studio Fix Powder

- - - - - - - - - 

It's safe to say that I have been pleased with MAC once again! I first heard of / experimented with this powder thanks to my big sister . . . and I've been obsessed ever since! I knew I had to go out and get one for my self! at $35 it is quite expensive. But for a high quality product , you have to be willing to pay a higher price tag! Also,  the packaging is exactly what I was looking for , sleek and simple.

Studio fix is the only powder that has ever worked for me. I have dry/sensitive skin and it is really hard to find any product out there that does not accentuate my dry skin. Although, I do still apply a thick layer of my daily moisturizer before applying this powder. This may not be the right product for everyone but I think the way you apply it makes a huge difference.  This product comes with a sponge (hidden in the bottom compartment) , but I strongly recommend you use a powder brush or a kabuki to achieve a more air brushed look.  The coverage is medium , and works incredibly well when trying to cover under eye discolourations.

Price tag aside , I would repurchase this product because I have never found a powder that works so well.
