2018 – New Year – New Opportunities. ๐Ÿ’•

Welcome to my blog and happy Valentineโ€™s Day! โค๏ธ

I finally have time to breathe as I will be graduating this year. 

So anyway – letโ€™s jump right into the make up look that will always work!

Those who are celebrating Valentineโ€™s Day and plan on going for a supper, could do this look and end off with a bright red lipstick. 
I prefer matte lipsticks as it tends to stay on much longer! 

What do you think? Would you do this look? 


How much of product does one have to use? ๐ŸŒก

Hi beauties… โค๏ธโค๏ธ
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. 


Today I want to focus on a very interesting topic. Ever thought about how much of product you need to apply to your face? ๐ŸŒ€
Usually, most of us go overboard and then sit with an over-moisturized face, or too much eye creme that we try and dab in, for minutes on end.  
However, all your worries can end today! As I was scrolling on the internet, I came across this image which PERFECTLY shows you the amount of product you need. ๐ŸŽฏ

โ–ถ๏ธ beauty tip – Always use quite a bit of cleanser and gently lather into the skin, then allow it to soak into the pores. Rinse gently, and feel how silky smooth your skin is! Cleansers clean your pores thoroughly and remove the excess oils, if you suffer from oily/combination skin or acne prone skin, then make sure you buy cleansers that are made for combination/oily skin. 
I hope this image helps some, if not all of you reading this. โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

The B&B cleaner is the BEST thing, I no longer have to go baby shampoo shopping! And just with one or two squirts, your brushes are spotlessly clean! โ˜บ๏ธ

Another way to clean my brushes are… 

This time round, you can use the brush egg which also works like magic..

Shelf life of beauty products. ๐Ÿ•š๐Ÿ”š

hi beauty fanatics ๐Ÿ˜. 
Ever wondered how long you are able to keep your favourite beauty product without it causing harm to you or your face and body? I came across this great picture that tells you everything!! 

Remember just like food, everything else has an expiry date, and this will determine exactly how long you have to use it, from date of purchase. After that please see that it gets thrown away. ๐Ÿšฎ

Anything been applied to the face and lips needs extra caution so please take note of the following, even if it means printing this picture out and sticking it onto your beauty cupboard door or mirror. 
Expired products or ‘fake’ products that are used on the lips will cause your lips to lose its colour and also stain it with a brown pigment around it. Expired face products can cause anything, which in most cases makes you break out into a rash or red painful marks. 
Look after your skin now and so that you may grow old gracefully โ˜บ๏ธ 

Hope this helps each and everyone of you๐Ÿ’‹
