Looks + new eye features (GlamST)

April 28, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

I have some exciting news!  GlamST  just launched a new version of their virtual program.

When the website first launched, you could only try one type of eyeliner application, and only one eye shadow at a time.  Well now you can actually try different ways of applying eyeliner and eye shadows!  

For instance, if you would like to try a smokey eye, you can choose a darker shade at the outer corner of your eyes, a middle shade for your crease and a highlighter at the inner corner.  As you can see in the picture below, you can try eight different ways of applying eye shadows.

You can also try six different ways of applying eyeliner

In the looks section, you can check out all the virtual makeovers shared by members of the GlamSt community.  And now you can also click on any photo in the looks section and click the try button to try out the look!

Check out the latest virtual makeover I tried using the new features!  

So happy testing girls!  And as I mentioned in my previous post if you like it, you can add it to your shopping basket and buy it from the website.  

If you haven't already, you can sign up here.

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Glitter gel manicure

April 23, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

My brother is getting married next Friday so I decided to get a manicure that compliments my dress.  I was worried my nails would break or chip at the last minute so I opted for a gel manicure.  

Gel manicure is a process that gives you an instant dry manicure that supposedly lasts for 14 chip-proof days.  It is applied in layers and each layer is sealed under a U.V. lamp.  

Scroll down for more... 

Although I am happy with my nails now, I’m a bit worried about eventually removing the gel.  It’s going to be a lot tougher to remove than a regular nail polish. 

To remove the gel you either need to soak your nails in pure acetone, which is VERY drying or FILE IT OFF!

I'll keep you posted!  In the meantime I would like to hear from you.  Who had gel nails before?  Would you consider getting them?  Leave a comment and let me know.

DIY: Make-up setting spray

April 20, 2014 2 Comments
Hello everyone!

You have probably noticed that most make-up setting sprays can be quite pricey, but this DIY setting spray  is very affordable.  It has only 2 ingredients and it is healthy for your skin.  What more could you ask for? 

You will need:
  • vegetable glycerin
  • rose water
  • small spray/mister bottle


The recipe calls for a 1:10 glycerin to distilled water ratio.  I like to substitute the water with rose water.  Instead of just water, you could also use a mixture of water, rosewater and witch hazel
  1. Measure the glycerin and put it into the spray bottle.
  2. Add the rose water.
  3. Shake to amalgamate the ingredients together.

Spray before you apply any make-up as a primer and again after you have applied your make-up to seal it in place.  Don’t hold the spray bottle too close, you don’t want to get your face wet!  Just a slight mist will do. 

This spray helps set your foundation or powder to achieve a flawless look that will last all day.  It's also great to spray on mid-day to refresh your make-up

Always shake well before use to redistribute the mixture.

Tip: Because this mixture is all natural and preservative free you will need to keep it in the fridge.  It will last about 3 weeks and then you should make a new batch.  

It keeps your make-up set for hours, plus, glycerin will hold moisture in your skin!

You’ll love it!
