Picture of Bernadette



I started this blog to share trustworthy reviews of makeup and beauty products, while providing accurate, high quality photos. Also, I hope to compile a swatch gallery on two skin tones: very light and very dark, both of which I feel are under-represented in existing swatch collections. I’ve always loved makeup and enjoyed writing–this is a fun way to combine my interests! Currently, I am working on my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I live in Chicago with my fiancé and two perfect black cats.

Below, I’ve listed information about my coloring/skin, so you can better understand my perspective on products.
Skin Tone: cool undertones, very fair (NW 10)
Skin Type: oily
Eyes: Brown, slightly hooded
