Boost your mascara with lavender oil

Image
Hello everyone! As I told you in previous posts, essential oils can promote healthy hair and scalp.  In fact, I put  tea tree oil in my shampoo to prevent itchy scalp .  But did you know that you can also use essential oils to help promote healthy eyelash hair growth ?  Here's how... All you have to do is put one drop of 100% pure lavender essential oil in your mascara tube right when you open it for the first time.  One tiny drop of essential oil is enough.  Then you just apply as usual. Just 1 drop of pure lavender oil: extends the life of your mascara kills mites and bacteria promotes lash growth strengthens your lashes + it smells amazing! Notes:  Some people claim to have had issues with some kinds of mascara but it has worked well with the mascara brands that I use.    Only use 100% pure lavender essential oil; no added ingredients! I’d love to hear from those of you who have tried this!  Has lavender oil made your lashes longer and t

Hello everyone! Summer  is coming to a close, and in   honour   of all the summer days I've enjoyed these past months I thought I'd rave about  my   favourite   beauty products .  Some, of course, I will keep using through autumn... Hair care products This summer I cut my hair several times, currently it's at  collarbone length  and I love it.    My hair is wavy and frizzy   so I've been straightening it a lot this summer, since I find it easier to manage that way.  However my hair tends to look oily by the second day and I  will not  heat style my hair more than once a week.  Luckily I found three amazing products that solved all of my hair problems. Yves Rocher Botanical Hair Repair Oil This is a pre-poo (pre-wash) oil is enriched with restorative babassu,   jojoba and macadamia oils to nourish the scalp and strengthen the hair.  Contains   more than 99% natural ingredients .  I apply it twice a week to dry hair before shampooing, leave it o

My mascara secret

Image
Hello everyone! Don't you hate it when you purchase a new mascara but you don't really like the wand it comes with?  Or when you have to throw away your old mascara tube along with your favourite wand?  I do! Personally, I LOVE L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara .  The thin, flexible plastic wand, coats and separates each lash and makes my eyelashes  look fuller and longer!  It give me the  "false lashes" look without wearing falsies. However, I still like to try out new mascaras.  I personally love volumising mascaras, but I don't like the ginormous wands they usually come with.  They make it almost impossible to apply mascara without ruining the rest of your eye make-up! So here's my "mascara secret"... I throw away my old mascara tubes but save the mascara wands.  I just clean the wands and reuse them!   If there’s a particular mascara wand that works very well for your, why not use that with   other  mascara formulas?

What is the point of clear mascara?

Image
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 .

Tightline those lashes!

Image
Hello everyone! Tightlining your eyes is a great way to give the illusion of fuller, darker lashes.  The idea may seem a little scary, but it's pretty easy to do. Note:  Tightlining and lining the waterline are not the same!  Tightlining your eyes is an easy way to add a subtle definition to your eyes.  Instead of lining the skin above your lashes, you line between the lash line (aka the "invisible eye liner") . How to  tightline your eyes: First make sure that whatever you are using to line your eyes is clean and safe to use.   Gently lift your eyelashes upward so you are able to see the tiny gaps between your lashes. Using either a gel or pencil  eyeliner , lightly dab the  eyeliner  in between each individual lash, as close to the root as possible. For a bolder look, tightline your bottom lash line as well . That's it! Do you ever tightline your eyes?  Do you have any tips for doing so? XOXO Euphrasie85 Related posts:

Make your eyes look bigger

Hello everyone!  Do you want brighter, bigger eyes ?   Here are a few simple tips and tricks to make your eyes look bigger, with make-up! Apply two coats of mascara instead of one to create a lifting effect.   To make sure that every lash is coated, use a mascara wand with angled bristles.   Curl your lashes .   Place the curler at the root of your lashes and gently pulse three times. Use e ye shadow colours that complement your eyes .  Use light colours on your lids to draw attention to the shape of your eyes, especially if you're wearing glasses. Conceal  under-eye circles .   Your eyes will look bigger if you keep a clean shape by waxing, tweezing or threading your eye brows . If you want to add length and volume, try false eyelashes .  They're easy to apply and will make your eyes pop. After you apply mascara, dot liquid eyeliner between your lashes to fill in any sparse spots.   Apply white eyeliner in the inner corners of your eyes. Tigh

Mascara 101

Hello everyone! One question I get a lot from people is what mascara  I use.  I love mascara, and I strongly believe that how you apply it makes all the difference.  Masc ara frames your eyes and it gently intensifies the eye by thickening and darkening the lashes.   I want to share my mascara tips and tricks with you. How to properly apply mascara: ·       While applying mascara look straight into your mirror with your chin slightly lifted so you can see your lashes. Twist the wand left to right at the base of the lashes.  It's the mascara placed near the roots (not the tips) that gives the illusion of length. I'm not wearing any make-up, just mascara. Apply 2 or 3 coats of mascara? What that means is to apply the coats of mascara all at once before the first coat dries.  Once the first coat dries, you'll get clumps if you attempt another swipe at the lashes. Tips:                                                                            Do
