Based on the characters from the popular Archie comics, Netflix released Riverdale earlier in the year, with one weekly episode, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. The final episode aired in May and has left fans itching for a second season (which has been announced, by the way). Although, Riverdale may seem like a classic teen drama, with crushes, cliques, friends and fights, the series has a darkness, which sets it apart.
Riverdale is a small town and like in most small towns – not a whole lot happens. That is until July 4th, when the son of one of the most prestigious families in Riverdale is found dead. At first, it seems to be a horrible accident but we soon discover it was murder and everyone is a suspect.
The series is based around finding out who killed Jason Blossom but goes far deeper with topics such as, family feuds, teen pregnancy, suicide, gangs and a cheeky student/teacher relationship. This show is a must see!
Too Faced Born this way foundation
If you’re after a foundation with great coverage and is a dream to apply – look no further! Born this way by Too Faced is a medium to full-coverage foundation, which is available in a range of shades. The bottle has a pump for a mess-free application and glides along the skin smoothly, whether you apply with a brush or beauty blender.
The formula is light-weight and buildable, if you want more coverage but still looks very natural and definitely not cakey. It does have a higher price point than many foundations on the market but it lasts quite a while, so it’s a good investment to make!
