Quick Tip: How I apply eye cream

Lets face it, most of know we should use eye cream or some sort of treatment around the eyes to either prevent wrinkling or protect/moisturize around the eye area, but we don’t or simply don’t know how to. Below, please find how I APPLY my eye cream.

I use a very simple way to apply eye cream. I take a SMALL amount of eye cream and place it on one of my ring fingers (this finger is used because it applies the least amount of pressure to your eye area. It is important you are not too rough around this area, as the skin is VERY thin and sensitive) and rub my two ring fingers together. Next, I gentle PAT the cream with my ring fingers around my orbital bone. This means underneath the eye around the outer corners, hitting the very tops of your cheekbone and then under your brow bone. You should be applying your eye cream, around the orbital bone in a circular fashion.

Hopefully this helps and don’t forget that it is never too late to start using eye cream!

 

YSL Babydoll mascara

Hi folks!

I was recently given a deluxe sample of the YSL Babydoll mascara. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this mascara, so I was excited to give it a go! After multiple uses, it is safe to say that I really enjoyed using this mascara for the following reasons:

1. Separated my lashes

2. Thickened my lashes.

3. Buildable coverage.

4. Rubber wand and bristles made it very easy to get to every single lash.

5. Very black.

6. Did not transfer.

7. Wand was versatile enough to use on lower lashes as well.

8. Did not create a clumpy messy look.

If I had to state some things I did not like, I would mention that is it not the easiest mascara to remove and takes a couple of times to get it off. Also, this stuff isn’t the cheapest thing on the mascara block.

Overall, I did enjoy this mascara and would recommend trying it! If you all have any other suggestions for mascara like this, let me know!

Shiseido- The Makeup Facial Cotton

Looking for new cotton facial squares? Look no further! Shiseido’s facial cotton is AMAZING! They are super soft and gentle while being very durable. The cotton also doesn’t tend to fall apart while you are removing makeup.

They may seem a bit pricey (approx 9.50) for a pack but they are totally worth it. The pack lasts a good amount of time and you can even split the wipe in half for removing eye makeup and such.

Next time you are at your local department store or Sephora, check them out! You won’t be sorry!

Amazing eyelash curler!

It’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I figured I’d start with something simple!

I’ve always thought that curling your lashes always was a important touch to finish a look. Finding a good eyelash curler can be a chore. I used to use the Shu Uemura curler until they stopped selling it in the USA.  Some curlers pinch your lids, some don’t curl all of your lashes and some of them just suck! After lots of trial and error, I came across the Shiseido eyelash curler.

This thing is wonderful! The curler grasps all of your lashes from root to tip creating a full lash. The curler fits my almond-shaped eyes perfectly. I have never experienced any pinching, pulling, or tugging from this curler (I am always cautious when using an eyelash curler).  The price point for this eyelash curler is around 19 bucks and totally worth it.

If you are in the market for a new eyelash curler, I HIGHLY recommend this one.

My Favorite Hair Tools

Finding the right hair tools can be expensive and difficult! I’m not an expert at hair so I like products that will do its job without requiring too much expertise! Below, I will list the tools I use the most thus far.

Flat iron: T3 single pass flat iron. This flat iron is amazing. It makes my hair smooth and shiny. It takes seconds to heat up and straightens my hair in half the time ( I have thick hair that goes below my waist). Amazing product.

T3 Featherweight Dryer: Once again, amazing product. Dries my hair in half the time. Also, my hair is smoother when I use this dryer.

T3 SinglePass Whirl curling wand: Let me be very honest and say that I suck at curling hair! This wand allows me to get beachy waves without putting in too much effort. This wand heats up quickly and does not require that you leave your hair wrapped around the wand for too long. Make sure you use the glove provided and hold your hair tight around the wand so it doesn’t slide off!

Enzo Milano Curling Iron (25mm Round): This is my first conical curling wand. I’ve had it for over 6 years and it still works great! I use it for loose beachy waves! Def. an oldie but a goodie.

 

I hope this helps! Enjoy!

Quick Tip: Rollerball Perfumes

If you are anything like me, you love perfumes and love to have a variety of them.

Try rollerball perfumes. They are cheaper,great for travel and/or your makeup bag, and allow you to have multiple perfumes on rotation. The only negative about rollerball perfumes is not all perfumes comes in a rollerball, although most do. Hope this helps!
