Secret overnight fixes. β™₯️

πŸ˜€ Good Evening fellow bloggers…. This post comes with experience. It’s a few secrets from ME to YOU.. Below I leave you with quick solutions to some really annoying problems. I hope it helps you as much as it helps me! 

πŸ”ΉMy lips are usually always peeling especially when it comes to winter, around this time of the year. I tend to suffer with winter lips, which can be very uncomfortable, and not very appealing either. I’m sure at some point, you needed a quick fix for your lips, because for instance you have an interview the next morning and want to look and feel your best! Here’s what I do daily before I go to bed, I use the body shop lip butter. 😍I saw it on sale and figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try, this was the best decision I could have made. 

πŸ‘„ I apply it to my lips overnight. It has a creme base, which gives off like a pinkish-white color. All you need to do is massage it into your lips and you will see the colour disappearing (this is only if you are using it during the day) otherwise when going to bed it can be left like that, it also comes in different flavours, and my ultimate favorite would be strawberry. It has a sweet strawberry scent to it. 😍 

  
πŸ”ΉAnother issue I sometimes have is a pimple which decides to pop in the middle of my face! Or anywhere on my face for that matter. πŸ˜” it can be painful and very stubborn, so after trying almost any and every product or home remedy, I came across two that really work. πŸ‘‡πŸ»

πŸ‘‰πŸ» 1) Acne and Pimple Cream by Himalaya. ~ yes this will always be my first option! All you have to do is apply it to the affected area and leave it overnight, the next morning your zit will be almost, to fully dried out. It also brings down the inflammation in that area making the zit 1/2 of its size. (NB- please make sure to read the ingredients of the product before applying it to your skin due to any allergens)

πŸ‘‰πŸ» 2) My second best would be toothpaste! A cheap easy fix and every household should have this, well I’m hoping so πŸ˜‰. Apply this for as long as your skin can handle it. It does usually burn abit but eventually the pain subsides. I use it on a zit overnight and it also dries it up and decreases it in size. 

πŸ”ΉIf you’re a foundation person, you can usually cover up the zit by concealing and then applying foundation over. Just remember to wash your makeup off at night, as this is the number one reason why your skin gets clogged and causes all types of pimples, and also you will be prone to ageing skin. 

πŸ”ΉπŸ‘€ Another problem most people face is not enough sleep, causing your eyes to swell. Literally the best and probably the only way I have found to work, is cutting a cold cucumber and applying it to the eyes! It soothes the eyes, as well as bringing the puffiness down. 

– Potatoes are also great at bringing down puffiness! It has anti inflammatory properties which helps getting rid of the bags from your under your eyes! 

πŸ”Ήβ˜•οΈ trying to get rid of mouth ulcers? Pamper yourself with a cup of tea! Before adding the milk, remove the teabag and set aside to cool down abit. Apply it to the affected area in the mouth. This can be done as many times as needed. After a few days, the mouth ulcer will be healed. 😊 

Have any of you tried any of the above? 😘 Let me know what has worked for you, maybe I could learn a thing or two as well. ☺️

Golden purple smokey eye Β 

  

  

Hello Everyone! Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Today I did a purple smokey eye on myself just for fun. So here goes all the amazing products that I’ve used and a few images. 

Foundation – MAC No5 matchmaster

Blush- Flormar (can also be used as a highlighter)

Primed the eye with NYX eyeshadow base 

Eyeshadows- NYX love in Paris palette as well as some gold dust by NYX. 

Eyeliner- Catrice eye pen

Mascara- Roatating mascara by Flormar. 

Lips- twist up lipstick by Flormar. Colour- raspberry. 

I contoured abit with powder. 
This look is easy to do, can be used for day or night. Took me a total of 10 minutes. 

I’m a big fan of this look, although I can’t have a very heavy smokey eye because it doesn’t work well with my small eyes. I love doing the heavy look on others. πŸ˜‰

Hope you guys enjoyed this look and let me know what you thinkβ˜ΊοΈπŸ˜€

Message me to find out where you can get these products. πŸ’‹

  

Prep + Prime Natural Radiance by MAC

This is by far the best primer i have tried, which gives off a great glow on the skin! All you have to do is apply it first, and then apply the foundation over and you will immediately see a major difference. I used this in the color yellow radiance, which goes great with warm toned skin. It uplifts your face as well as giving it a great glow without making your face look oily because it controls oil. This primer is very light on the skin and has a very slight shine to it. try it out and let me know what you think.. πŸ™‚
