Some more random makeup hair and skincare tips =]

1. to De-puff your eyes cut two thin slices from a chilled potato and place them on your eyes.Leave on for 10 minutes =]

2.Spritz your face.It wakes up dry skin =] don't wanna splurge on a fancy one? 
Do a homemade version:::
Brew a cup of green tea then pop it in the fridge.pour the chilled tea into a spray bottle and dilute with water.Mist your skin after you wash your face then put moisturizer on.

3.To get rid of static and fly aways::
deep condition hair weekly with a mask that has avocado oil =]
switch to a moisturizing shampoo
instead of wool wear a cotton cap.It wont roughen up the hair cuticle and its def more breathable.

4.find you most flattering blush shade:::
Fair skin::Pinks
Medium skin:: corals and cinnamons
Dark skin:: Plums and merlots

Hope this helps =]

Quick and easy Nail care tips =]

Quick and easy nail care tips =]

Nail shapes::

Square::this look is best on medium length nails.

Oval:: This shape keeps short nails from looking stubby.

Tapered::This shape looks great if you have slim fingers and long nails.


BUFF nails before painting to make the manicure last longer.

Want your nails to dry quicker?? Use two very thin layers of whatever nail color/polish your using.

Mix hand cream with a little olive oil then rub it into your hands and cuticle slip on gloves and wear them over night.In the AM you will have super soft hands.

Red and deep berry's are the most sexually arousing colors.

The perfect red for your skin tone::

Light skin with yellow undertones= warm coral or tomato red.

light skin with blue undertones=cool rose red or deep berry red

medium skin= reddish violet hue

Dark=lucky lucky all reds go with this sin tone but metallics POP.

To prevent light colors from yellowing use a UV-protectent topcoat.

Keep manicure bright by applying a cat of clear gloss every other day.

AT home tip::
soak feet in a bowl of warm orange juice for ten minutes [the acids are exfoliating].then rub rough spots with a coarse foot scrub.Rinse off and wrap hot towels over each foot for 5 min.Afterwards MOISTURIZE!!!!


Hope everyone fnds this helpful =] more to come as i find helpful tips =]

More Bang For Your Buck =]

This stuff is awesome!!!


But be warned i do not think people with very dry skin should use this very often as it is drying.


But for people with combo or oily skin this works wonders!! and for only 3 dollars
[which was what i paid] i think this is an awesome product =]



[IF YOU USE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD MOISTURIZER!!]


Directions::

Make sure your face and neck are clean and apply in a generous amount.
Leave on for 15 minutes and then wash off with a warm wet washcloth]
After that i go on with my normal face routine =]

Hopefully this helps everyone =]

Some quick tips on skin care =]

Wanna know what type of skin you have? well here are some characteristics of each =]

  • Dry::small pores dullness skin feels tight post cleaning
  • Oily::Large pores acne prone frequently looks shiny
  • Combo::forehead nose and chin are oily while cheeks are drier
  • Normal::close to combo but with less oil in the t-zone area


Put on sunscreen 15-25 minutes before going outside [so it can be fully absorbed for the best protection ]


If your not using eye cream already then start TODAY!! the skin around your eyes is the thinnest and shows signs of aging the fastest.


Please sleep no less than 8 hours!! the more you sleep the better your skin will look


>>>Have a big pimple and want a faster way to get rid of it?<<<
  1. Dab toner on it
  2. Wrap ice in tissue then hold on it for one minute[NO MORE THAN THAT!!]
  3. Use a spot treatment and then concealer

any questions just ask =]
