CONFESSION OF A BLOGGER TAG QUESTION ANSWERS

  This is a tag question from blogger Thee Opimist, I decided to participate they are good question so why not take the time to answer so here I go with my answers.
 
1-When did you start blogging? On April 30, 2013 was the first time I set up my blog. 
 
2-Have you had any past online presence ( Youtube, other blog)? Nope no other blog never Youtube.
 
3-Why did you start your blog? It was brought to my attention by a co-worker that I should blog since I love to shop and have great sense of style (honestly) at first I was hesitant since I really have a short amount of time for myself after really taking her advice in consideration, I said "Why Not".
 
4-When did you become serious about your blog? When you enjoy or have a passion for something you always take it serious. 
 
5-What was your first post?Welcome to my new blog read it was about Argan Oil even though I did not gave an legit topic of what I was reviewing.
 
6-Where do you see yourself in a year? I really don't like thinking that far ahead I take day by day and will like to hopefully in a year be more successful and continue blogging if god permit.
 
7- What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging? So many way its so rewarding in a short amount of time I got to embrace and interact with people from different countries and culture.
 
8- What is the most discouraging thing that happen on to you? Well let see I do not mean to come across like a cry baby but we all have it. Bloggers that state they following when they clearly are not, and expect comments from you but do not bother in reading or commenting on your post. This is one reason  that discourage me in trusting. When I commit to following you I comment on your post. If the day comes and you see no comment on my behalf these are the reason.  Away, Sick or my Computer and Phone are non functional or I pass on.
 
9- What is your lasting inspiration or motivation? When you seriously like my blog and enjoy reading my post. I get happy to know my tip help or we have something in common with fashion or beauty and so on it does put a smile on my face.

A GREAT FIND-HAIR STYLING TOOLS AND CASE

 
Does this ever happen to you, go to the store pick up an item and come across to something you never though you will find. In my case went to WalMart to pick up shampoo and came across to these cute Modella hair styling tool cases they sell different patterns but these two were my favorites and could not resist in getting them. The price was ridiculously reasonable $6.97 for each, great bargain . We all have a drawer full of hair styling tools this is an easy way to make your hair styling drawer or bin more organize and convenient to grab. They also great to take if you traveling.
 


 Look at the inside how it fits one side the styling tool the other the plug extension.
This one carry my flatiron tool you could also fit a curly iron like I have in the other bag.
The only downsize is you cannot fit a blow dryer and I cannot wait when they do come out with one that does.


 I also will like to share with you these little travel size hairstyling tools that comes with their carry case. I purchase both in Walgreen's the flatiron tool was on sale for $9.99 and the curling iron
was $19.99 still not bad for a tool and case. I like to take them with me when I travel especially on
the plane since they are smaller.

The pink flower pattern curling iron below come also with gloves to protect you fingers from handling the hot styling tool. I call it genius...



Flat Iron
Is worth preventing your styling tools from getting damage in the bin or drawer don't you think?
And for the traveler Fashionista the small one are a life saver.
What do you think and how do you take care of your styling tools?

MY TWO TECHNICS IN CLEANING MAKEUP BRUSHES

Its expensive investing in makeup brushes, so to expand the texture and life of them I like to keep my makeup brushes clean, Your skin will thank you. Every time we apply makeup we have to go into the product and apply it on to our face so the excess stay on the brush, so beside putting makeup in your face you also putting dry skin and oils or even germs. I know nasty! so this is why is important to clean our brushes weekly and in between if you can. I want to share with you my method in cleaning my brushes and hopefully you will try it at home and find it conveniently fast and easy.

The image above on your left it show how I wash the makeup brushes with mild soap.

A- I place a drop of soap on my hand wet the brush with luke warm water then swirl the brush in a circular motion until I see excess dirt coming off continue until it becomes clear. Than I rinse under luke warm water first than cold squeeze excess water out and lay the brush down flat on a clean towel or paper towel to dry.

The image on your right is my alcohol method.

B-. When in a rush and no time to clean a brush, I place alcohol in one of the travel spritz bottle
 (I know I should make the label prettier. I never have time), than take a tissue and spray some on it. Take the brush and gently move it in a back and forth motion to take off the excess dirt you will see in the tissue. The makeup brush dry fast and it's able to use.

I hope these tips in cleaning your makeup brushes help.
Maybe you have your own method you want to share with me.

BEAUTY TIPS AND TRICKS THAT WORKS

Last month I came across this magazine in the office call People Style Watch.
 


While I was reading People Style Watch magazine. I saw a list of makeup trick and tips. I was astonish to come across certain tips I been using for years from advice of makeup artist and stores makeup professionals, who was kind enough to share with me. Now, I'm going to share some of those tips I know and practice on me with you, also found in the magazine with the names of who stated the tips or tricks. It's shocking to me how makeup artist think alike.
 
1-Jewel-Toned Eyeliner works for all skin tones and eye colors say celeb makeup artist Tina Turnbow for a pretty pop of color, trace the pencil along the inner or outer corners of your eyes or do both for bolder take. ( I try this for an event with blue eyeliner got alot of compliment)
 
2-Put Foundation on your lids prepping lids with a thin layer of liquid foundation helps eye shadow stay put. It also makes blending easy and helps prevents creasing says makeup artist Diane Kendal. Let foundation dry before applying shadow. (One step I always do)
 
3-Use moisturizer as highlighter after you apply foundation, put moisturizer on the tips of your fingers and lightly pat it onto your nose, cheeks or anywhere else you want a little dewiness. The extra layer of hydration makes you look more fresh and radiant says makeup artist Val Garland. ( I been doing this from the first time I knew you could highlight with it)
 
4-Mix blush & blonzer for a pretty glow-sweeping bronzer along your cheekbones and adding blush to the apples of cheeks make every complexion look brighter, you just need to find your best combo. (One of my favorite trick to do to myself especially now in warm weather when I want a sunkiss look)
 
5- Double up on brow pencil for a natural look when you mix two different tones (one that is a shade darker than your brow and one a shade lighter), your arches will look defined but not fake. With feathery strokes, enhance your brows' shape with the darker color, then add fullness with the lighter one, says makeup artist Sil Bruinsma. (This really works)
 
6. Get a whiter smile with coral lipstick adding coral to the center of lips on top of a neutral color like beige gives teeth a brighter look. It neutralizes any yellowness says Oresman. (Smile looks brighter)
 
7- Enhance any eye shape with liner open up small eyes by lining just along the top lash line, says Schlip show off  larger eyes by framing them with liner on both top and bottom lash lines. ( I do this on special occasion went I want my eyes to stand out)
 
8-Shrink pores with a mask using one with mud and clay once or twice a week will draw out skin-clogging impurities that can make pores look bigger, says Dr. Tanzi. ( I do this with homemade mask it works as good to)
 
9-Apply moisturizer to damp skin put on your face cream or lotion within three minutes of washing your face to help it absorb quickly into skin. Moisturizer always works better with a little water, says Dr. Tanzi. (It absorb really fast)
 
10-Wash sensitive skin with cool water anything hotter than lukewarm water may be irritating to your skin, says Joanna Vargas founder of Joanna Vargas Salon. Cleanse at the sink instead of in the shower. (Less redness)
 
11- Moisturize a dry scalp with vitamin E poke a hole in a vitamin E capsule and rub the contents directly on your scalp to relieve dryness or itchiness, says Kyle White, lead colorist at Oscar Blandi salon. (Works well on elbows and feet)
 
12-Hydrate cuticles with chapstick rub lip balm on cuticles to ease rough, dry skin on the go says Jin Soon Choi manicurist and founder of N.Y.C's Jin Soon Natural hand & Foot Spas. (This tips I have done for years with Vaseline now chapstick work well and is the to go for me now)

SOFT KISS LIPSTICKS AND GLOSS

 
 
 
 
During the warm weather I like to apply lipstick and gloss in coral and pink. What I mean is different shades of those two colors for instance dark, medium, light, sheer, shiny, and glossy it really does not matter as long it looks good on me. 
I was smitten when I found these two color gloss below they are light weight non stick and the colors look fresh. The price was below three dollars cannot go wrong with that right!
 
Wet & Wild number 578 is a Shimmery Pink it glides on smoothly.
Rimmel 140 Always Lovely a soft coral with a sheer look to it.
Loreal never disappoint like the fresh colors and the finish on these lipstick.
Loreal 169 Pink Plush it caress your lips with a stunning color.
Loreal 176 Sunset Angora rich color without being sticky.
I like many brands of lipstick as long as they have the right color that goes with my complexion and it stay longer than an hour on my lips. Don't you agree?
   
  
Hey Fashionistas, how about you what is your favorite summer color lipstick and gloss?

Flawless Face With Loose Powders

Do you run out to try products as soon as you see it advertise or recommended by bloggers,
I usually do.
I been exhaustively looking for a finish powder that goes on smooth and is not noticeable
after blending it well.
I concluded in three that are now my favorites.
I will like to share it with you and see if they work for you
as well as they work for me.

NOTE*This is my personal review base on using these products on myself.

 
 


Light Texture Hydrate Loose Powder in (916) Translucent by Loreal ,
It feels light also controlled shines and it's great for acne prone skin
 a small amount goes a long way.
I like using it when heading to an activity outdoors
 where in tends to give me shine on my t-zone.
The price is very reasonable.


 Dew Finish Mineral Veil by BareMinerals,
 Swirl, Tap and Buff is bareMinerals signature statement.
This Mineral powder I like applying it before my foundation and concealer
it gives me a flawless look.
 
 



Minimize Pores Makeup Forever HD powder it blends very well into skin and it gives a photo finish great if you planning in taking picture it minimize flaws in your skin.  I like that is absorb the foundation and give a matte finish. The price is a little higher than the others but worth it.

I use the Bamboo Fininshing Kabuki brush by Eco tools.
 I had mention in my previous post how much I like Eco tools brushes
