How to curl your eyelashes

Hi ladies,

I've been curling my eyelashes for as long as I can remember. I don't have long eyelashes to begin with, so my only help is to curl them and to put lots, and I mean lots, of mascara on them :-)

Before curling my eyelashes with my eyeslash curler, I like to moisten them first. Believe it or not, I put vaseline on them. I use the vaseline in two different manners.

Before I shower, I put a little bit of vaseline on the tip of my finger and rub it onto my eyelashes. I do not wipe it off, I simply go in the shower and wash my face as usual. When I get out of the shower, I make sure to dry my eyes when I dry my face so that my eyelids are not greasy from the vaseline. However, my eyelashes still stay nice and moist. This is when I curl my eyelashes ladies, and they will stay curled all day. Then, I apply my mascara for length and volume,

Sometimes, I forget to apply the vaseline before I shower, so the other manner in which I use it is to put some vaseline on the tip of my finger and rub it onto my eyelash curler directly. I only put a little bit, since I don't want my eyes to be greasy.

Another great use for vaseline is as an eye make up remover! :-)  But that's a topic for a whole different blog!  And more great thing about vaseline, it is inexpensive, but very effective

I hope you found this information helpful! <3

How to prevent pimples from wearing Make Up

Hi ladies,

In the past month, I've discovered a method that has helped me prevent getting pimples from wearing make-up. The more I learn about make-up and how to apply it, the more I've been wearing it. As a result, it's caused me to breakout with pimples more frequently, since my pore get clogged by the foundation, primer, setting powder, etc. It's very important to wash your face every night after wearing make-up, and I've discovered two great products that have helped me prevent pimples.

The first product I found at the supermarket (Hannaford) in the Organic Section. It's an exfoliator with sea algae extract. I  love this product because it gets rid of all the impurities on my face and it also leaves my face super smooth. I've been using it every night to wash my make up off. I basically use it as a make up remover.

After I'm done using exfoliating my face, I wait a couple of minutes and I use my second favorite product called "Acne Stress Control" from Neutrogena. Again, since I'm dealing with pimples, I try to use a product with Salicylic Acid which is used to treat acne.  I moisten a cotton ball with this astringent and rub it all over my face until I don't see my cotton ball has dirt on it anymore. Again, this product leaves my face very smooth as well, and it has a pleasant smell to it, unlike other astringent products.  If you have sensitive skin, I don't know if this will work for you since after applying the astringent, your face may burn a little bit.  I recommend using the astringent only if you have pimples.  If not, the exfoliator itself should be sufficient.

I hope you ladies found this information interesting and helpful <3

Too Faced Eye Shadow Primer Due

Hi ladies! I recently purchased the “Two Faced Ready Set Primer Duo” and I absolutely love it! The duo set comes with two eye shadow primers, one is called “insurance” and the other one is called “candlelight”. The insurance primer you can use for your every day look. It helps intensify your eye shadow and also “insures” that your eye shadow lasts for hours. I absolutely loved the candlelight primer! It’s basically primer with shimmer in it to help create a more dramatic look. I tried it on one of my clients and the eye shadow looked beautiful! This eye shadow had a lot of pigment, but the primer helped it stand out more and gave it a beautiful shimmer. I highly recommend this product! You can find it at
