It’s a pain in the backside, or the uterus if you want to be specific, but there are plenty of things that can boost your mood and ease the pain. From four and a half years of personal experience, I have collected a few habits that are carried out during that time of month. Number one is watching a ton of chick flicks.

It’s nearly that time of year again where everywhere is getting covered in spider webs and fake blood, I figured it was our turn to contribute to the thousands of tutorials that already exist and decided a leopard would be fun so here it is! To start, apply a pale foundation, I used Laval foundation in the lightest shade available because it’s affordable and easy to distribute evenly on the face. After the base colour, brush on a darker foundation where you would usually contour (under the cheek bones, temples and nose). Also, outline the jaw of the leopard with a brown…
