How to Store Your Make up Brushes

7 Jun
  • Keep your used brushes away from the new ones.
  • Sort out your brushes by size and function.
  • You can store them in a roll bag or plastic or glass jar.
  • Keep your makeup brushes away from direct sunlight and heat as it may ruin them.
  • Store your brushes in clean protected area.
  • Separate the brushes that are used for liquid makeup from those that are used for powder makeup.
  • Sometimes the beauty shops give away makeup bags or containers for free with the beauty products purchase. Save your money by getting one of those and using it to organize your makeup brushes.
  • The kind of storage container that I use is actually a shower caddy from target, that I removed the suction pieces that would have been used to stick it to a wall. (picture is above )

6 Tips To Help Your Nails

3 Jun

1)    Cuticle Oil should be used everyday and not only after a manicure. You should also use cuticle oil after washing your hands, this helps to avoid dryness. ( cuticle oil also helps with the drying process of nail polish)

2)    A top coat is not just to be used the day of a new manicure, it should be applied daily to prolong the life of the manicure. If this is a bit much for you try doing this every 3rd day of your manicure. You can also run the top coat ( and nail color) along the edge of the nail  and under the nail the nail tip. (I swear by this. I causes an extra barrier and allows for the edges to chip before the polish that is actually on the surface of your nails. Hence a longer lasting manicure.)

3)  Fast drying nail polishes may seem like a good idea, however because they dry faster they also peel more easily. So I stick with the regular drying polishes and tend to do my nails when i have time to allow a good amount of drying time.

4)    High summer temperatures can cause nail polish to separate and change color. This can also happen when nail polish is stored in hotter places all year round. You must roll the bottle in between your hands to mix the color together as well as storing the polishes in cool places

5) NEVER shake polish bottles, this causes bubbles which will stay if you apply the polish on your nails. Always roll the polish bottle between your hands. It mixes the polishes and keeps the bubbles away.

6)Refrigerating nail polishes is not only good to prevent nail color from  separating and maintaining its color in the summer months, but it is also good to increase the shelf life of your polishes.

Tom Ford Lipstick

25 May

This is my favorite neutral lip color by Tom Ford in Deep Mink. When applied without a lip liner it gives me this nice soft brown. I top this off with my MAC cremesheen gloss in over-indulgence. Once you apply a brown lip liner the color deepens to give a nice milk chocolate look. This lipstick doesn’t dry out my lips and it has just the right amount of shine on its own. This lipstick will last me a while. I do recommend this lipstick if you are willing to shell out a bit more money. It’s cost is $48 and you can find it at http://www.neimanmarcus.com/.

Tarte Eye Primer

25 May

Let’s talk about eye primers. If you want your shadows to last longer then a few hours go for an eye primer. The one I’ve been using for a while now is the Lifted eyelid primer with Firmitol by Tarte. Tarte is a natural cosmetics line and this eye primer is one that truly works. I have used this product for the past year and the only way my shadow will leave my eyes is if I use a make-up remover or soap to wash it off. The added bonus to this product is that it firming complex helps tighten eyelids and the surrounding eye area to help give the affect of younger, smoother eyes naturally. It’s packaging is also green and is infused with ecoPure, a recyclable, non toxic resin-additive that allows plastic to biodegrade in less than 5 years.so your getting a great product and one that is environmentally friendly. This product costs $20.00 and you can find it at http://tartecosmetics.com
