My current eyebrow routine | How I dye my eyebrows at home

Image
Hello everyone! I love eyebrow products and have a wide variety in my makeup collection; pencils, pomades, powders, tinted gels, pens, etc. Still, a few years ago, I discovered the magic of eyebrow tinting. Tinting makes your brows appear thicker and darker. I adore the results and the fact that I no longer need to use products daily.  Many use at-home kits to tint their eyebrow themselves instead of having them done by a professional. A dye kit costs much less than one professional appointment, and you can use it for many applications. And if you do not like the results, it fades in about a week and a half. I have been dyeing my brows, as well as my mum's, for years now. Doing my own eyebrow tinting every few weeks is easy, effective, and budget-friendly. You can purchase an  at-home eyebrow dye  or use  Just for Men Mustache & Beard Brush-In Gel  or  L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Rescue. Want to try eyebrow tinting at home?  Here is everything you will need...   Your dye of choice

FOTD: Do you wear makeup under your face masks?

Image
Hello everyone! Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic situation, I haven't been wearing makeup; in fact, the last time I can remember putting on makeup was months ago!¬† I was never the type of person to wear makeup every day but since I've been staying home most of the time and I'm not attending any social events, I found myself missing wearing makeup and feeling more put together.¬† Whenever I need to go out I'm wearing a face mask and sunglasses or a face shield (aka visor) anyway.¬† Dermatologists advise that we skip wearing makeup under our face masks.¬†¬† Beneath a mask, makeup is more likely to clog pores and lead to breakouts.¬† If makeup is necessary, use only products labelled ‚Äúnon-comedogenic‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúoil-free‚ÄĚ.¬† I have acne-prone skin so for me that means¬† face mask¬† + makeup = breakouts - No thanks! So yesterday I decided to put on some makeup and take some photos for upcoming blog posts.¬† If you look closely you can spot this makeup in my previous post an

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Essence "the gel nail polish" - #lucky

Image
Hello everyone! Long wearing nail polishes are a huge trend right now, may that be gel polishes with or   without the use of LED or UV lamps .  And that's precisely what   Essence   brought on the market.  I am a little obsessed with new   Essence "the gel nail polish"  trio lately.  I own 3 shades already, and out of my three this one is definitely my favourite (at the moment).  I am wearing   09 #lucky   and I can honestly say that in combination with base and top coat, the gel polish stays longer on my nails than any other polish. First I applied one coat of   base coat , which dries really quickly, and has a matte finish.  Then I applied one coat of   #lucky   and followed with a coat of   top coat .  That's all;  the nails are given an extreme, long-lasting gel-shine finish without the need for an LED or UV lamp.   The top coat gives that gel-like shine and protects the colour. These nail polishes are easy to remove using any convent
