I'm a 22-year-old perfume and makeup addict. I figured it would be useful to put up my opinions about the numerous indie products that I buy (and perhaps it would justify my purchases a little more if I use the reasoning that I am also helping others whilst satisfying my spending habits).
Skintone: My skintone/foundation color is somewhere between NC30 and NC35 in MAC. I am a bit darker than Urban Decay Naked Skin 4.0 but I wear it anyway because I like to brighten up my skin. Shiseido Dual Balancing Foundation in O40 matches me in the winter, and O60 matches me when it's sunnier outside. In other words, I have medium skin with yellow undertones and the ability to tan to a darker peachy yellow brown.
Fragrance Preferences: I generally get drawn to what I call "hippie goth cupcake" or "witchcraft bakery" type smells---foody, bakery gourmands that have woody, spicy, herbal, or resinous bases. Through my perfume journey, I've expanded to include fresh aquatic scents, fruits, and fruity florals, but my bias will always be for the aforementioned. I hate pure floral smells because they consistently give me searing headaches.
