Smashbox primer vs Monistat

If there is one thing I love about make up...It's Primer! I have been researching online on drugstore primers and I came across on a non make up product called Monistat Chafing gel.




"The Monistat that people use as a make-up primer is called “Monistat Chafing Gel.”  This is NOT the same as the vaginal cream used to treat yeast infections.  The chafing gel is essentially a lotion, but with more silicone to create a barrier on top of the skin to reduce irritation if something rubs on it.
The SmashBox foundation primer or any other primers out there uses the same silicone ingredients (usually methicone or other names ending in -cone).
Silicon comes in many forms, but methicone is normally used in cosmetics, lotions, shampoos, etc…  In terms of skincare, the silicone will sit on top of the skin or fill in the fine lines to give the illusion of smoother skin.  This does not mean it will reduce wrinkles…just a temporary fix until it’s washed off.  This can also fill in the large pores, again, giving the illusion of smoother skin.  Silicon will block pores keeping in moisture, but at the same time keeping in any other debris inside the pores.  So when you put on foundation, it will sit on top of the silicon as oppose to being absorbed into the skin."

The best part about this product is that it's cheap! Go to ur local drug store and check it out!

Room Inspirations

I am going to redecorate my room and here are some ideas I have in mind. I am really digging the white and blue lights and the blue paint! :)




 

New Hair!!

Hey Everyone! It's been so long since I have posted a blog. Sorry for disappearing on you guys but I am definitely back and will try to keep up with more blogs. :)

So I have decided that I needed a new look since I was so bored of myself. I decided to try something a little on the wild side!!! I dyed my hair Rihanna red. lol Although it doesn't look as bright in these photos since my camera sucks! :(





I am still not used to this hair. I have trouble doing my dark make up since I don't have my dark hair. :( I might go back to dark brown. We shall see how long I will last with this. :)

10 ways to wake up beautiful.

Time Inc. Digital Studio
Time Inc. Digital Studio
1. Get an Early Start
Make a habit of washing your face a few hours before bed. If you wait until you're tired, you're more likely to blow it off -- allowing "toxins and dirt to stay on there all night," says dermatologist Laurie Polis of N.Y.C. Another consequence? You miss the best time to treat your skin. "At night there's more blood flow to the skin's surface, and there's nothing else on your face to interfere with absorption," Polis says.

Try: Neutrogena Deep Clean Relaxing nightly cleanser, $7; at drugstores.

2. Sleep on Your Back
Note to Audrey Hepburn fans: Lying on your stomach is bad for "beauty sleep." The average head weighs 7 to 8 pounds -- a lot of pressure to be putting on your face every night. In fact, many dermatologists say they can tell what side of the face people sleep on by the number of wrinkles there.

3. Get a Lift
Sleep with your head elevated on two pillows, or put the headrest area of your bed on 2- to 4-inch pieces of wood. Gravity helps lymph and blood flow so fluid won't accumulate, Polis says.

4. Save Money, Not Wrinkles

At night you don't need to worry about eye treatments smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can. Polis swears by Aquaphor: "It conditions lashes and hydrates the delicate eye skin really well."

Try: Aquaphor Healing ointment, $9; drugstore.com.

5. Sneak a Glow
Mix a drop of self-tanner into your night cream or use a cream that contains a bit of tan-producing DHA.

Try: Clarins Radiance-Plus self-tanning cream, $52; clarinsusa.com.

6. Avoid Carb Face
To wake with defined cheekbones, eat a high-protein, low-sugar dinner (try salmon and asparagus, a natural diuretic). Skip the rice, pasta and potatoes. "When our diet's high in glycemic carbohydrates, our features take on a soft, doughy appearance," says Connecticut dermatologist Nicholas Perricone.

7. Wrap It Up
To minimize A.M. frizz, sleep on a satin pillowcase or put your hair in a silk scarf. "Those fabrics are much softer than cotton, so there's less friction," says Harry Josh, a John Frieda stylist.

8. Find Your Inner Ballerina
Pile hair into a twist on the top of your head (use a scrunchie to avoid crimping). "In the morning you'll have major volume and beautiful waves," Josh says.

9. Turn on the Hair Conditioning
Sleep with a moisturizing treatment in damp hair overnight. We like Philip B. Katira Hair Masque, but any rich conditioner will do. Rinse in the morning.

Try: Philip B. Katira Hair Masque, $40; philipb.com.

10. Pop a Rooster Pill
Trust us, we were skeptical. But after swallowing two Wake Up on Time pills at 11 P.M., we found it much easier to get out of bed seven hours later. Created by a sleep-deprived single mother, the pills contain an energizing blend of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B6 and B12 and guarana-seed extract. It's formulated with a coating that releases ingredients into your bloodstream toward the end of your last sleep cycle, so you wake up feeling clear-headed, not fuzzy.

Try: Wake Up On Time, $30/40 tablets; wakeupontime.com.

99cent store Haul!

1$ False lashes! Bargain! I am huge on lashes when it comes to doing my make up. I used to buy Ardell false lashes, but really most of them are the same and i find lashes ridiculous when they are expensive.

Cotton rounds.

New Magnifying mirror.

Okay so I bought this at another dollar store next door to the 99 cent store. I like Santee's lipsticks so I decided to give this tinted moisturizer a shot.


Okay this was a dollar and to be honest I was sketchy about it. I secretly opened one when no one was looking and tested some on my hand. To my surprise this stuff actually is great! I love thick creams, and my skin is really sensitive and dry. So lets see how the results are in a few weeks.

Thanks for reading! Hope you guys go to your nearest 99 cent store and buy those false lashes! Definitely worth it.
