The fuss about foundations

Date: 13/05/19

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

A common question I get asked is, “Which foundation should I be using?” Let me firstly say that, I am a firm believer that when it comes to foundation – less is more.

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

Stress, or being stressed, is a commonly heard and used term that I believe we have become quite complacent about.
