Hie.. everyone today i got some easy make up tips for you
Let's learn some easy makeup..

However, on a recent trip to the drugstore, I spotted a little gem in a clearance bin. Jane Be pure Aguaceuticals Natural Mascara. Honestly, this is probably the best mascara I have ever used. I hope I can manage to find it again!

ever notice that no matter how much you wash and condition your hair, it stays DRY?!
well..., I do. I went online, did some wonderful research and found some charming info that will get your hair from dry and brittle to moisturized and hydrated!
let's start with cleansing.
1. When shampooing your gorgeous locks, ONLY apply it to the roots. Gently scrub and massage shampoo at the crown and roots of your hair. Then, when rinsing, the soapy suds will falls on the rest of the hair. It's okay--it's enough to clean it.
2. Make sure you're using the right shampoo. If the label says "For Oily Hair" and your hair is dry, STOP USING IT!!! Anti-oily shampoo's try to eliminate the oil by taming the oil glands on your scalp and by reducing the appearance of greasy hair during the day. Problem? If you have dry hair, this will only dry it out more! Try a shampoo for your hair type, like these:
1. Now it's the opposite with conditioner--only condition the ends. They are the driest part of the hair because they're furthest from the roots, which produce the natural oils, essential in having healthy hair. If you DO condition all over, it may cause extra oil and grease to build up, and that's a no-no.
2. Buy a weekly conditioning treatment. One day a week, let's say, every Saturday, when taking a shower, apply a conditioning treatment. Doing so will allow your precious hair to "heal itself", if you will. It will rejuvenate the hair follicles and strengthen your hair as long as you use it properly.
We all know and love hair products. You know what I'm talkin` about: gel, mousse, hairspray, pomade, wax, anti-frizz products, volumizing sprays. They can add up--and add damage! If you use these products daily, it's okay...we all do. But just make sure you're cleansing your hair everyday to remove build-up. If you leave the products in overnight, your hair will be nasty.
Straightening. Curling. Crimping (a little outdated, but whatever). Blow drying. We've all done it, and maybe a little too much. I for one never straighten my hair (hallelujah for naturally straight hair) but I'd KILL for curls and tendrils. But i know if I curl my hair too much, it will cause damage, dryness and even become brittle. That's why, my heat-addicted ladies, you need to protect your hair with a heat defense spray, like this one from Vo5. It will save your hair if you just spray before you heat, trust me!
Well, I really hope you got something out of my tips and tricks :)
Pleasseee use them because if you do, I know you'll have noticeably more beautiful, less damaged hair.
And i will try it out too :) *

The milk and honey facial mask moisturizer softens the skin. You can add extra stuff like oatmeal and strawberries to the mix but I'm just using milk and honey.
Ingredients: milk, honey, a bowl, and measuring spoons :) *
It's easy to do, just add 2 tbsp of honey and 1 tsp of milk to a bowl. Mix it together and rub it gently on your face. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water. Another good moisturizing mask.Have you ever tried this milk and honey combo?
What other DIY beauty tricks do you know just share it wid me !!
Winter skin tips.
Hey guys! woah. i guess its winter time :) *
Although it not that cool but i got some tips for you all
i just wanted to write up some tips and i promise to have a video soon! i've probably made like 5 videos but i look stupid in all of them, and i can't edit them so they're really bad. :( *
Tips to Survive Winter.
1. Always wear chapstick- i never go anywhere without it. especially if you go outside and your lips get wind burned. ouch. i like Vaseline Lip Therapy in Cherry or Carmex.
2. Moisturize your face after washing- even if you have oily skin! just get a facial moisturizer that says "For Oily Skin". it'll moisturize it without making it more oily. (try this: http://www.cleanandclear.com/productDetail.do?productid=31&productpos=0 )
3. Wear sunscreen on your face- i know it sounds weird in the middle of winter, but the sun's harmful rays are still just as bad--especially when it snows. the UV rays can reflect off of the snow and burn your skin, so wear a moisturizer or sunscreen with at least SPF 15 everyday.
4. Drink water- you need to hydrate your skin to keep it moisturized, so try to drink a glass of water everyday.
5. Don't take hot showers- sounds nice, especially during the long, cold winter, but hot showers strip the skin of natural moisturizers. just take a short, warm shower instead.
Well, i really hope these tips helped and i hope you use them to keep your skin healthy and hydrated this winter :)
