Face Mask Friday

Face Mask Friday

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. As Christmas inches closer (Take a minute to lose it because I am) I’ve been really going to work making sure my skin looks somewhat decent. If your family is anything like mine (mainly my dear mother ft. in this blog) then you’ll be in roughly a good 1000 photos.

So, I decided to pick out a face mask from my arsenal, just a little something to “relax”. Today’s choice was by a company called The Original Korean Face Mask, The Pearl Sculpting Mask. This promised to brighten and give my skin an instant renewal! I bought it at Boscovs on a whim for a whopping $2.00.

Well… FAIL!

It comes in a powder form inside a plastic cup with a little spatula. You put water up to the line, mix then apply wait the standard 15 to 20 minutes and rinse…… (I’m sitting here typing this, laughing) My guess is that I mixed it for too long? Because it started to harden in the container! I run to the mirror and begin to slap it on my face. Honestly everyone in my house thinks I’ve lost it, this just adds to the proof.

Ah… now I had a chunky unspreadable goop on my face. The mask finally dries and after rinsing it off there was not much of a difference. My skin felt soft and it was good fun but I’m not going to repurchase another one.

If you do purchase this face mask just be aware that you need to apply it fast and there is a strong perfume smell.

Question of the day? Is it appropriate to re-gift something?

Pro Beauty Box from Influenster

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. I’m back already like I promised!

Recently I was sent a Pro Beauty Box from Influenster featuring six styling products for the holidays! (How cool is that?) I am familiar with a few of the brands from working with hair but some were new. (Honestly I’m so excited)

First Item: Pureology Colour Fanatic Hair Treatment Spray – 4/5
-Smells fine
-Leaves my hair silky before I blow dry it
-Less frizz after styling it

Second Item: Amika Haute Mess Texture Gel – 3/5
– Smells strong
– Did not leave the hair sticky or stiff
– I didn’t really notice a huge difference in my hair after using this
– Was easy to style afterwards

Third Item: Matrix Biology R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray – 2/5
– Not a fan of the smell
– Natural ingredients
– I do not think I will use this anymore, I saw no difference or texture

Fourth Item: Sexy Hair Volumizing Spray Mousse – 5/5
– Smells like a hair typical product
– Gives you so much volume
– Easy to use
– Doesn’t leave you hair stiff or crunchy

Fifth Item: IGK Down & Out Dirty Spray – 4/5 (I love this stuff!)
– Smells like the beach
– Makes your hair easy to style, even if you had just washed it.
– It gives you texture and a really “lived in” look

Final Item: Redken Control Addict 28 Extra High-Hold Hairspray – 4/5
– Smells like hairspray (haha)
– Strong hold
– But doesn’t leave a crispy lookIMG_4475.JPG

I’m very picky when it comes to hair styling products because I work with so many. But I am so grateful to be able to work with Influenster and try out brands I would not have picked up before. Over all a few were amazing like the Sexy hair, IGK and the Redkin hairspray. I will be picking up the full sizes when my samples run out!

Just a little disclaimer, I was not paid for my opinions and they are my own. Influenster sent me these items to test out.

All Things Eyebrows!

All Things Eyebrows!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. It was time to wax/shape my eyebrows so, I figured, ummm hey it’s the perfect time to do a blog post about them.

We live in a society where eyebrows are of super importance. (I pride myself on my bushes!) I don’t know who has and who has not read my “About Me” post (Shameless Plug,) but I’m a trained cosmetologist. I do my own brows at home!

So, why not do a tutorial on how I get these bad boys: (System I Use)

IMG_3197

First- I clean the area with Pre Hon to remove all the dirt and oils from my skin.

Second- I smooth the wax down, then use cotton strips to rip off the hair!

Third- I then brush the hairs up and cut them to further shape the brows.

Forth and final – I wipe my brows with cooling gel.

This is how I wax and shape them!IMG_3198

Filling them in is a different story:

I trace each brow with the elf eyebrow kit  (I really love this kit,) then with a small angled brush I go back in and fill them in.IMG_3199

Using a spooly, I brush through the brows making them even and less cakey.IMG_3200

Then I use the Anastasia brow gel to set the brows.IMG_3201

Sculpting out the eyebrows is the final step, I use benefits boing concealer and blend it out with a brush. IMG_3202
