Whiten Your Teeth In Just One Brushing?

Whiten Your Teeth In Just One Brushing?

Hello everyone! I hope all is well and everyone is having a great beginning of the year. I have been knee-deep in college classes. But I am doing good (I think). All is going well!

Today, I’m writing a little review on charcoal tooth polish. A few weeks ago I bought a pot of Olivia Care charcoal. I was so excited ( I’ve really wanted to try this).

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

There are a few positive and negative points:

Positive – Great price, tastes like mint, and really does whiten your teeth after one use!

Negative – Is really MESSY!

The only comment I have to add is that this is not comparable to going to get your teeth professionally whitened. But that being said it’s much more healthy that chemicals.

I hope everyone has an amazing week.

Question of the day: Do you whiten your teeth? If so, let me know how?

My Ultimate Face Mask!

My Ultimate Face Mask!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well of course. You all are probably wondering where in the world I’ve been! Well, I have decided to go back to college. This whole summer has been dedicated to getting ready for that, and just having fun. I don’t like the fact that my blog took a back seat for awhile, but unfortunately it has.

Enough with the updates, I have an exciting experience to share with everyone! A little back story, at the beginning of middle school I started getting migraines. (They are a family trait I wish I never got) One day my mom took me to The Body Shop and we bought a cooling face mask just to try…. It worked wonders! Fast forward twelve years (Yes twelve!), my beloved mask has started to lose its magic. A lot of the blue gel inside has dissipated. IMG_3601

Well, one night I was browsing The Body Shop website and what did I find?!? The same mask in PINK! (My favorite color btw) I could have cried, twelve years later and I find a new one? Crazy! But wait its only $4.80? With FREE SHIPPING? This must be a joke… NOPE!

This mask is a life saver, it helps with a number of things:
-Puffy eyes
-Migraines/Headaches
-Hot days to cool off

It stays pretty cool on its own but you can place it in the freezer for a bit to get cold. It has a strap with velcro. I’m just in love with this mask honestly, there are so many good things I could say about it. I mean you have to love something to buy it twice.

July Empties!

July Empties!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well as usual! July has been packed with so much which has reflected in my lack of posts! For that, I am truly sorry.

At last, I’ve saved up my all my beauty trash and here today to give you my July empties. Yay! I love the idea of looking at what others have finished so I hope you do to.

IMG_3564Starting with the Home Grown Fresh Picked makeup wipes. I felt these were so-so, nothing to write home about, but did the job. They smelt fine and I used them for much more than just removing my makeup. I felt like the pack was never ending!

Up next was the OOZOO Face Injection Mask. Which I did a review on my blog. (Shameless Plug) I loved this mask and plan to buy many more. Oh, and did I mention they have more than one!

Bubble Bath Pearls, I got these on sale at OLD NAVY. Yes, Old Navy! They were those little balls with an oil inside, definitely a 90’s throw back. They really didn’t do anything but hey they were fun!IMG_3563

Sephora Charcoal Nose Strip… I’m not sure how I felt about this strip. It pulled out some black heads just like the bore strips, but… the smell! (Omg) It was so strong, plus its right on your nose. I would not repurchase.

Hey Smile, I’m not sure what this is called I would want to say the “bleaching” agent. I love my hey smile system. I use it all the time (I’m sorta obsessed,) and its super affective.

Dollar Tree bath soak? Enough said. I didn’t like it one bit, I do not know what I was thinking when I bought it. I love the dollar store but their bath products are a no-go for me.

Loreal Face Masks are awful, they burnt my skin. I didn’t even finish them.

Benefit Porefessionals, I have rebought this product a million times. It’s my perfect primer and I would never switch! I’m a die hard fan.

Thats pretty much it! I hope you enjoyed reading about my empties. Oh did anyone peep the new background? Are we fans?

-Back to the Too Face palette I used Sugared Raisin all over the lid.
-Using Satellite Dreams from Mac in the outer corner, I blend it towards the middle of my lid.
– Switching over to the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself palette I take the highlight shade in the middle and place it on the middle of my lid and blend it out. As well as on my eyebrow and the inner corner of my eye.
-Taking Lorac Liquid Liner to make my wing.
-Finally I added a few coats of Essence Lash Princess after using an eyelash curler.

Smokey Copper Eye Makeup Tutorial

Smokey Copper Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hello everyone… I hope all is well! Today’s post is a makeup tutorial on this smokey copper look. Which is a beautiful look for summer! (Well, I think so.)

Honestly, my face makeup is the same as any other makeup posts I have (shameless plug.) If you would like to see how it’s done, click the link!IMG_3312

Starting out, I used Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer all over both lids.

Then, I take my Lorac Pro Palette and apply the shade “Porcelain” all over my lids as well.

Continuing with my crease, I place “Twany” and “Burlap” to smoke it out, and to deepen the look I use “Goji.” (Yes, all three in my crease!)

Switching over to my Too Faced Vegas Nay Star Dust palette (No Longer Available), I use “Double Tap” on the lids. To add a little sparkle, I dust on some “Showgirl” to the middle of my lids.

The last step is to blend out some “Porcelain” on my brow bone to highlight the area!

DON’T FORGET TO BLEND EVERY STEP!

(Bam! Eyeshadow done!)

Finally, I use Lorac’s Black Liquid Eyeliner and wing it out. I did use a thicker line on my lids.

I apply a couple of coats of Essence Lash Princess and TA-DA!IMG_3313

I hope everyone enjoyed this quick and easy eye look. Please don’t forget to comment any  concerns or questions… Lets chat!

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
