With the changing season, our skin care routine changes and so does our makeup routine.  I usually go for darker, bolder lips and purple/plum or smokey brown eyes during fall/winter.  Here are few YouTube videos I am trying to imitate and thought I share.  Enjoy!

Celeb inexpensive beauty tips

Looking fab can and does cost lots money.  I know I spend a lot of money buying cosmetics, few different shampoos, lotions and what not.  So, here are a few tips from celebs that hopefully will save us some $$$.

  1. To soothe dry, itchy scalp, or dandruff crush few ibuprofen or hard pills and mix with your shampoo.  The jagged edge of the pills will work like a scrub and get rid of the flakes per Oscar Blandi.
  2.  Repair end with Gelatin; dissolve a packet of clear gelatin in hot water and then massage the warm solution through your hair, leave in for 30 minutes and then rinse per Ted Gibson.
  3. Natural grapeseed oil is a great moisturizer according to Emma Stone who uses it day and night to keep her skin looking so beautiful.
  4. Add spoon full of sugar to your body wash and then lather up.  It works as a gentle exfoliater according to Kim Kardashian.
  5. Jennifer Aniston uses quarter of a teaspoon Vaseline under her eyes every night to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
  6. Evan Rachel Wood uses olive oil as her make up remover and you can also use it to remove hair extension glue (if you use extensions) per Jennifer Hudson hairstylist Kiyah Wright.
  7. Mariah Carey mixes mint extract to gloss for a natural way to plump up her lips.  You can also use cinnamon extract.
  8. Fergie uses toothpaste to dry up her breakouts!
  9. Lauren Conrad gives herself ice cube facial to get rid of fat cells, breakouts and for dewy complexion.  She also uses potatoes to get rid of puffy eyes.  Refrigerate few slices, soak in water for few minutes and then place them on your lids for about 15 minutes.  It also helps reduce the look of dark circles (this is my tip).
  10. Scarlett Johansson uses Manuka honey (but I use the natural honey) mask to keep give her face a dewy glow and get rid of all the impurities.

Mad About Urban Decay Glide-On Shadow Pencil!

In my quest to make my everyday or morning make-up routine a little faster, I decided to try the Urban’s shadow pencil because of the creamy texture and pencil shape, easy to put on and blend with fingers. The colors are great, pigmented and have shimmer, they blend well and lasts all day. I use Sin for daytime because it matches with my skin so all you see are hints of shimmer and Delinquent for night time, perfect one step smokey eye.

A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at Sephora when I decided to use my points for a sample of Benefit’s Bella Bamba blush.  It was the best use of my points because ever since I used the sample, I haven’t touched any of my other blushes.  The color is suppose to be watermelon with gold shimmer.  I would say the color is a mix between pink and coral, so pretty.  The shimmer and the color are both very subtle so I can wear it to work but it can also be layered a little more for night time.  I don’t need to use a highlighter with this blush, it’s two in one!!  I am definitely going to get the full size blush when I run out of the sample, which I am sure will be very soon.  So, go get yourself one too and perk up that pretty face with some Bamba!!!

What-To-Do Wednesday: False Lashes

featured-wednesday
So, I have been trying to learn how to put on fake lashes by myself, individual and strips, and having a hard time.  Then I decided to see some tutorials to get some help; it is working but it still takes me a long time to put them on.  I thought I share with you the tutorials I am using in hopes that it may help you guys as well.  I use DUO glue and ELF and Ardell lashes because they are cheap and since I am just learning, I don’t want to use expensive lashes. Once I am a pro though, I am definitely going to get some M.A.C lashes.  Enjoy and let me know if you have your own trick to putting on falsies fast!
