Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Water drops

July 22, 2013 0 Comments
Hello everyone!  I have another NOTD post for you.  

This is what I'm wearing on my nails today...  

I applied two coats of Matte Blue nail polish and then one coat of matte top coat.  I finished it with some clear polish dots that look like water dropsJ

I really like the end result.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

What is the point of clear mascara?

July 15, 2013 0 Comments
Clear mascara is one of those make-up products you might not use very often.  It defines and separates the lashes, adding volume and the illusion of length.  But did you know that there are other ways you can use clear mascara?

Here are just some of the ways to use clear mascara: 
  • It is essential for the natural look - especially on the beach when you still want extra oomph, but without the panda-like effect.
  • Clear mascara can be used to tame the eyebrows - for an instantly polished look.
  • Try it as a base coat.  Layer a light base of clear on first, let it dry, and then apply the dark mascara.
  • If your regular mascara tends to smudge, you can apply a top coat of clear mascara to seal it.
  • Use clear mascara after curling the lashes to hold the curl.
  • If you only apply dark mascara on the upper lashes, use a clear one on the bottom - for a lighter, daytime look that won't run.
  • Coloured mascara – Get loose powdered shadow in a fun, bright colour and dip the wand in it.  Twist in the shadow and lightly add to your lashes.  This will create a subtle hue.  Wash the wand, let your lashes dry, and add on a sealer coat of clear.
  • Using the above method, you can create your own tinted eyebrow gel.
  • Acts as a sealant when dipped onto an angled brush and applied over eye-liner.
  • Helps put fly-aways in place.  This works great for when your hair is pulled back.

5 Beauty “quick fixes”!

July 03, 2013 0 Comments

Hello everyone!

Since we all look for quick fixes in time of “emergency”, here are five beauty “quick fixes” ;)

1.   Apply a drop of super glue over a broken nail, then buff gently with a nail file.  Repeat twice, and then apply a coloured nail polish.

2.   Prime your lips with foundation before applying your lipstick.  It will help the colour stay all day.

3.   If you ran out of shaving gel, use conditioner.  You’ll actually get a closer shave and your legs will feel incredibly soft.

4.   Apply hairspray to a toothbrush and brush eyebrows upward to keep them in place.

5.   Don't have time to wait, after a DIY manicure?  Let your nails dry for two minutes, and then submerge into ice cold water for three minutes.  The cold water will help the polish dry completely.

On another note... I just opened an online store with my mom, Rose!  She is a very talented, creative woman.
