basedlafi asked: I want to do my hair like you did with the twist out & pick it out, do you think it would work for someone with really thick hair?


Answer:

Of course! Just make sure whatever styling cream you use will be strong enough to hold the curl of the twist out. I used to use Eco Styler Argan Oil Gel. It didn’t leave my hair hard or crunchy.

Tutorials???

I’m a little stumped on what tutorial I should do. I’m going to film an easy everyday school tutorial tomorrow. Is there anything special you guys would like to see?

10 for $2, sounds about right to me.

My ability to apply lashes is hit or miss, you might be able to tell that from some of my pictures. I see no point in paying a bunch of money for a single pair of lashes that can barely apply; Amazon had the solution to my problem. These lashes are great for learning how to apply and trim them. They are medium length and have the same thickness as regular lashes. I hope this was helpful if you were looking to try put lashes! Here’s the link if you’re interested in them! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0094DH1RE?ie=UTF8&at=&force-full-site=1&ref_=aw_bottom_links

Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!

You’ve probably heard a million times that great skin leads to great makeup. Exfoliating your face once or twice a week will help remove dead skin cells from your face and helps unclog pores. Piling makeup on top of dead, dry skin will make your face look flaky and makeup appear patchy.

Aspirin and honey is a great exfoliant for any skin type. I like to wash my face with a gentle cleanser and then get to work! You have to have uncoated aspirin or powder aspirin. Take 3 tablet in your hand and a couple drops of water to get the tablets to dissolve. Once they are dissolved add a drop of honey, mix together with your finger, and massage into the skin with your finger tips.

This is a cheap way to exfoliate your skin and add moisture back to it with the honey. I’ve been doing this for 2 years and always come back to it no matter what other product I try. I hope this was helpful!

My mommy came home with presents!

I love all kinds of makeup, especially free makeup! One of the foundations isn’t my shade but my kit doesn’t discriminate. All of these products are from Covergirl and I’m excited to use them. I never really gravitate towards their products outside of my holy grail foundation. 

I just wanted to share this with you and I’ll be back tomorrow with a colorful cut crease tutorial! Make sure you stay tuned and check out my YouTube channel for more tutorials! Thanks for all of your support, subscribe and follow if you haven’t already!

Current Beauty Favorites!

These products have been saving my life and giving me all the life that I need! I’m exaggerating a bit but these are my most frequently grabbed for things out of the last couple of months.

I’m just going to start this out by saying my nails have found their miracle! I’ve been raving about these Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polishes for about a month now, three polishes in, they haven’t let me down. No need for a base coat, just polish and seal the deal with the top coat. I’m all for cheesy catch phrases right now, so just bare with me.

Shea Butter has been saving my dark spots and showing them the brighter side of town, literally. Slowly but surely they are lightening up. I got this small container at my local beauty supply for $1. I’ve had this for probably 2 months and just halfway through.

I’ve added three of the four kabuki brushes to my makeup routine: the rounded, rounded angled, and the flat top kabuki brush. The rounded kabuki is great a buffing in foundation. All of these brushes are dense and transfer the product like a dream so that your face is seamless. The rounded angled kabuki is perfect for blending out concealer under the eye, or any area you want to highlight with concealer, and buffing out a contour.

The flat top kabuki is a match made in heaven for Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream. With a dense brush that doesn’t absorb the product, you can achieve great coverage from this BB cream. With one layer I can nicely cover most of my dark spots and that ok because it isn’t a foundation. It starts to break down after about 5 hours but at the end of the night you’re not completely spotty and oily. Love this stuff and it has a salicylic acne treatment in it.

Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express is the perfect everyday mascara. It doesn’t clump or give you hard lashes, it simply enhances your lashes with some volume and a little length. I wear this just about everyday and it looks so natural, great for an everyday face.

City Color Blush Quad has to be heaven sent from the makeup gods with little glitter fairies carrying it down. This is the best $4 I have ever spent on blushes. I’m not even a blush lover but this palette, you need in! This is the Collection 2 palette and if you want to see swatches just click here.

Last but not least, Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner. I got this in my Ipsy bag a month or two ago and I just can’t put it down. The tip is similar to a paint brush and feels like its made with synthetic hairs. You can create any kind of line with it. Just to warn you, the reviews for this are very hit and miss. Some say the pen exploded on them, the tip was dry, and anything else that can go wrong with a liquid eyeliner pen. It works great for me and hopefully Jesse’s Girl fixes whatever the problem was.

Well these are my current favorites! Thanks for reading!

Random Tip

When cleaning up your eyebrows with concealer, use a concealer that is your skin color or your foundation for the top of your brows. Cleaning up all around your eyebrows with a concealer that’s 1-2 shades lighter make your brows look harsh and unnatural.

Anonymous asked: when you had youre tapered hair cut. how did you tell your barber what you wanted bc im thinking about it and idk how i want tell the barber


Answer:

Long story short, I showed her a picture of what I wanted but she didn’t cut it correctly so I had to fix it myself.

I use Pinterest a lot for hair pictures. Just search for tapered natural hair or natural hair cuts and you should find lots of pictures like it.

Tell them you want the back and sides tapered down. Sorry I kind of went past your question lol.

I love love love this stuff!

Excuse my kid like voice, I just woke up when I did the voiceover. Anyways, if you read my review you already know my thoughts on this stuff. If you were skeptical about the application process here it is! I didn’t film how I prep my nails for polish but I can definitely do that if you are interested in seeing it. Thanks for watching!

My Miracle Mani!

As I’ve been saying throughout the lifetime of my blog, my nails and I don’t always see eye to eye. One week they grow, the next week they break, and the cycle repeats itself. Through all the chipping, peeling, and breaking, I’ve found my new favorite manicure routine. This isn’t your average Monday mani, it’s Sally Hansen Miracle Gel! That was a bit corny but you get my drift.

This 2 step gel system doesn’t require and UV light at all. I’ve recently discovered that Revlon has something like this too but Sally caught me first. The starter kit was $15.99 at my local Walgreens and comes with the polish and top coat. The instructions are pretty vague and simple like all nail instructions should be right? Well since it doesn’t supply a base coat it’s totally up to you if you want to apply one or not. I opted out of that option and dived right into the polish. I removed old polish, shaped, buffed, and pushed back my cuticles before I proceeded with the diving.

I think buffing my nail bed really helped the polish stay on longer, so I would recommend doing that. The Miracle Gel Claims to last for 14 days with top notch shine and color. I don’t know if this stuff really lasts for 14 days but it lasted on my nails for 7 days without any major chips. It did begin to lose it’s shine after day 4 but I’m rough on my nails at work so that may not happen to you. At the end of day 7 it still looked decent but it was time for a color change. If you have a job that isn’t rough on your nails then I definitely see this polish lasting even longer for you.

I absolutely love this stuff. It’s no different than polishing your nails a regular polish and it comes in a lot of shades. Each polish is $10, so it’s a bit more than your average polish but it’ll save you money if you like to go to the salon every 2 weeks for gel polish. If you notice the shine fade away you can always apply another coat of the top coat. I have a demonstration video that I’ll be posting so you can see how it applies.

Pros:
•Starter kit comes with $2 off coupon
•Formula is perfect consistency
•Comes in many colors
•Doesn’t require UV light
•Wide manicure brush for easy application
•Easy instructions
•Nails feel rock solid

Cons:
•Can’t be applied in 1 coat (I’ve tried 2 colors so far, dark and light)

I definitely recommend this to all of you. I’ve always wanted to try gel nails a home and this makes it so easy. I don’t have to pay a fortune for a starter kit that has ugly colors to chose from or buy a light separately. For $16 why not try it? If you don’t like it you can always take it back. I hope this was helpful to you! This product hasn’t been out very long and they’re aren’t many reviews for it yet. I love Sally Hansen and I’ve just fallen more in love!
