There are several reasons; Wrong foundation shade: It's either we don't get out colour matched before buying a foundation or just using the … Continue reading Is your foundation looking ashy?
Hello fellow beauty lovers, Welcome back to Sithru Beauty! In my previous post, I shared with you what dry shampoos are and how they work. Today I am going to talk a little about the different dry shampoos I have used which I bought in-store in New Zealand. The choice is very limited in NZ … Continue reading Dry Shampoo showdown!
Dry shampoos are used in between washes to keep your hair refreshed and oil free. This is one of those products that has become a necessity in any beauty-junky household. However, selecting the perfect dry shampoo is an ordeal especially if you have darker hair like I do...
