For as long as I can remember.. everything skin related for me has been Neutrogena.
Oil-free this oil-free that. Well let me tell you in case you didn't know (because I just found this out).. OIL-FREE IS HORRIBLY BAD FOR YOUR SKIN.
Oil-free cleansers are harsh.. because they are oil-free. The harshness leaves your skin parched. You know that tingly / tight feelings you get after washing your face with one of these popular cleansers? That's not good at all.
That's the feeling of your skin being ridiculously parched. You know what ridiculously parched skin leads to? Premature WRINKLES. Yes.. i said it. Wrinkles. Granted I'm 20 years old and probably won't get wrinkles anytime soon (I sure hope not at least..) it still freaked me out when I read this.
Oil-free cleansers claim to be better for your skin because oil cloggs your pores and gives you acne. FALSE. Oil is your face's friend! You need to restore the oils in your face not strip them.
Shu Uemura cleanser's are oil based and wonderful. They're crazy pricey.. so I just recommend good old Cetaphil.
I was under the impression that this was always for old ladies.. but really it's wonderful. My skin feels so much softer after just one use.
Next time you're out buying your face wash.. skip Neutrogena.. Clean & Clear.. Clearasil.. stay away from anything oil-free.so i hope you guy will belive me !!

Hey guys party tonight !!!... if you hear this dont for get to go for makeup and Put on the fake Eyelashes okay..., I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE fake eyelashes when it's a party time
Some people might have the misconception that it takes too long to put on, or its too messy. Which is completely untrue. Yes, it may take some time for you to get used to handling lashes properly. But within a week of using them, you'll become a pro! Trust me!
The results are amazing, they give your make-up a finished, defining look. It doesn't matter if your going to work, school, or out on the town, from casual to dramatic, natural to supernatural, you can use lashes to finish your ensemble! It all depends on which kind you get. Here are some examples:
With these, people won't even notice you have longer lashes. These are so natural, it can work for anyone!
For a little bit more of a longer lash, these are great. See they're not too thick so it will look REALLY fake. Remember, you can add mascara after applying these. Apply mascara to your natural eyelashes as well as the fake ones, to make them blend evenly. (:
This is a more thicker lash, great if for a special occasion.
These are some fun, party eyelashes.
I just had to add my MAC feathery eyelashes which is really hot !!
This is my favorite eyelash look! See how she added mascara to her BOTTOM lashes too! It makes your eyes just pop! Like a doll right? (: Love it!
Yeah...You can see some of these eyelashes on some of your favourite celebs, such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian , Avril Lavigne, Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, and even Michelle Obama!
you either love it, or hate it!! .

Bronze Booster Pressed Powder
- This bronzer with benefits provides an instant and lasting tan-boost that blends and builds easily to your desired level of bronze.
- Lightweight powder glides on smoothly for a totally uniform and even, healthy-looking tan glow.
- Formulated with Glow Activators, an exclusive infusion of vitamins, moisturizers and antioxidants that provide mistake-proof Triple-Action Bronze Boosting.
I just got this bronzer from my friend the other day she brought it for me from USA and I absolutely love it! Previously I used one of this brand bronzers which I really liked too but luckily got to try something new.
Well..This bronzer comes in three different skin tone options: fair to light, light to medium, and medium to dark (I used light to medium) . It comes with a compact mirror in it and a small brush. What i love about this bronzer is that it goes on very well and looks so natural. It lasts me all day and I would recomend it to everyone who likes to wear bronzer. Trust me you will love it.
