Winter/Fall Beauty Tips

Lip Scrub

As we approach the colder weather, our lips tend to get chapped a lot more easily. Me for one always have a problem with chapped lips especially in the cold weather. So taking some steps can help keep our lips moistured. One thing is to scrub your lips before applying lip balm. The one I like to use is from lush, and it has lasted for a while now. I have a jar from around April/May and its still not have way empty. So it is a good investment and tasty as they come in different flavors. So what I like to do while doing my makeup and use the lips scrub and wash it off with warm water and it makes them softer after using the scrub. Then Ill go ahead and apply lip balm and continue my makeup routine.

 

Stay Away From Hot Water

Taking frequent hot showers, or washing your face with hot water often, can take out the essential oils that our skin naturally produces. If this turn out to be then case, then you will always have dry skin, and dry skin and cold water is a uncomfortable. The best way to prevent this in the colder months is to use lukewarm water, stay hydrated, and make sure you moisturizer to keep your skin glowing and hydrated, which of course if always a good foundation before starting your makeup.

 

Smokey Eye

In the warmer months we don’t tend to go some much for bolder colors as apposed to the colder months. So smokey eyes are very trendy and if you don’t normally wear darker colors, this would be the perfect time to try it out.

 

Deep condition more often

Not only do our lips get dry due to the colder weather but our hair gets dry more frequently. So to keep our locks nice and moistured, try attempting to deep condition, once to twice a week depending on your hair type.

 

Bronzer is everyone’s Best Friend

In the cooler months, everyone loses their summer tan, and to help keep that glow, bronzer is keep, especially those who tend to have a more paler skin tone.

Let me know some of your routine changes when the weather starts getting colder out!

Beauty Hacks You Need To Know

Hey Hey lovelies,

So what better to make the getting ready process much quicker and simpler is by finding tricks to putting together an outfit, or getting that perfect eyeliner. So of course I thought I would share with you some tips and tricks that I do myself! So of which you may or may not already know!

  1. Deodorant Stains on your shirt!
    1. So I know this all happens to all of us when we are getting ready. We put our deodorant on after the shower and we throw on a t-shirt so that we can head out of the door. Until we notice that of course there are deodorant stains on our shirts (especially black shirts) Well there is a trick to getting them out without changing shirts! You grab a pair of jeans and rub your jeans on the strains until they are gone! Which takes about 20 seconds or so, not too long for sure under a minute. Was super happy when I found this trick because this happens to me ALL THE TIME.
  2. Secret to Super soft legs after Shaving
    1. So I have been doing this for as long as I can remember and not sure if I have shared this yet or not. But an inexpensive way to getting super soft legs after shaving. Hold up on buying on expensive shaving cream, instead go for a cheap hair conditioner. Next time you’re in the shower replace your shaving cream with conditioner and you’ll get better results then shaving with shaving cream. And now you have one product for 2 jobs!
  3. Minimize Pores
    1. This is a more recent trick that I have found out about that works wonders. So it is a simple 2 ingredient mask that you can apply after washing your face to help minimize pores. Wash your face with your favorite cleanser, and then mix together a small amount of baking soda and lemon juice. Just enough to cover your face, then wait about 5-10 minutes until it is completely dry. Then rise and VOILA smaller pores and clearer looking skin. Don’t forget to add moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin. I love doing this mask, and try to do it about once or twice a week.

I hope you enjoyed reading up on my tips and tricks and I hope you can take something away from them. Thanks again and hope you continue to read my content 😉

NYX Review!

Hey Hey!

SO Sorry its been a minute since I posted a beauty article ( school is finally over yay).

So I am here to share with you of course of lip products. So far some time matte lips are all about the rave, and I’m here to talk to you about some good and inexpensive lip creams by NYX. I had discovered them about a year ago, when I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try a matte dark purple lip cream which is the one on the far left called Transylvania, and when I first tried it I feel in love!!

 

It compliments me so well, and I believe could go well with so many skin complexions, and I highly recommend them! So of course I had to try other lip creams in the matte collection, and this is when I picked up San Paulo which is the middle pink one, and Monte Carlo which is the far right red one. I love all of them and they last a few hours before you need to reapply.

I wear them out all the time and sometime get compliments ;). So if you’re in the market for a new matte lipgloss and want to try something different and not spend $20 on a lip stick. Check out NYX soft matte lip creams! With only $6 a piece. I do want to get more in the collection and also check out their NYX lingerie collection since I’ve heard good things!

Thanks so much for reading!! Tell me your experiences with NYX!

Promise you’ll hear from me soon!
