Skin Care Hacks for the cheap Girl

Hey all,

All my life my skin has been  perfect , no flaws, nothing everything has always been great .. hahah *laughs in corner*.

Lets be real no woman, especially in their puberty years ever had nice skin, it takes years of changing products, creams and soaps to find your perfect match and even then it’s still no the one for you. For me I’ve tried everything from clean and clear, to very expensive products I don’t even remember the names of.

On the internet there are tons of remedies you can do to get better, healthier looking skin here are some of the things i do to make my skin look nice and bright, now at the age of 19.

My facial cleanser that I use nightly is “St.Ives,naturally clear blemish and black head apricot scrub” I buy this at shopper’s drug mart for about $12 and it lasts for a long time! 

Step one: remove any makeup with makeup remover and wash cloth

Step two: rinse face throughly with warm water to open pores up

Step three: get just over a pea sized amount of product onto finger taps and rub into skin in light circular motions

Step four: Rinse product off thoroughly with cold water to close pores and seal your natural oils

Step five: Pat try with towel or face towel

Every other product I use is most likely in your home as we speak, and I only use them for major breakouts.

1. Honey-this allows blemishes to come to a head making them softer to pop

2. toothpaste- can dry blemishes, prevents from further damage to skin

3. aloe vera Gel/plant-  I use this as my nightly moisturizer, this can help even out skin tone and helps prevent breakouts. Gel i buy from shopper’s drug mart the life brand works the exact same for about $10 might be more or less, because i bought mine a while ago.

4. fresh lemon juice-  since lemons are acidic, they really dry your skin so be careful with this one, but it works especially when you have white heads *runaway* hate those things, but we all get them.

So thats basically everything i use on my face, of course there are many more hacks and tricks which i will soon learn in time, but for now since I’m a cheapo and in college on a budget this is what works for me haha.

Thats all for today beauties and i hope you all enjoy the weekend.

Fun and Flirty Valentine’s day makeup

10968332_10206309332674811_7279876049747240247_n

Hey all,

So I know I haven’t updated all week  and I figured since yesterday was Valentine’s day that i’d do a flirty makeup look for all you beauties out there so if you want to know how i created the look above and the products i used keep reading!

Foundation 

First of all I know many of you out there use foundation or a tinted moisturizer almost everyday, I feel like with my skin tone and the price of my foundation i just don’t need it everyday per say so for this look, no foundation is needed, unless of course you feel like you need it. However in the new future I will be posting a review of the product I use which is “Bare minerals in liquid form” which is about $45 at Sephora.

Eyes

For this look I used “Kat Von D’s * Tattoo Liner (liquid)”  purchased for $23 at Sephora. I made a thin line starting from the inner corner of the lid getting thinker as i proceed out and ended with a wing to add a bit of length and flare to my eyes, (waterproof, long lasting, no flaking)

Next i used  Sephora’s collection “#35- Romantic Comedy Contour eye pencil 24/h wear “(waterproof) for $12. outlining the water line and lash line for a smokey effect and going over top of the black liner just on the Winged part to brighten the top lid.

I then used “Revlon’s colorstay eye shadow palette” purchased for $12 at Shopper’s Drug Mart, using the lightest colour to highlight my brow bone and to open the eyes.

* Mascara and an eyelash curing is optional, I usually wear Almay One coat, Get up & Grow for Brown eyes Purchased for $12 from Shopper’s Drug Mart. *

Bronzer

The first one i used is called “Chocolate Soleil in medium/deep matte from Too Faced”, for $35 from Sephora.  I used this to create that Kylie Jenner cheek bone look, i wanted the effect of chiseled cheeks and this stuff actually smells like chocolate!

Second i wanted to also add a summery glow, because sadly here in Canada it was -27 degrees outside I’m pale as a ghost lo. So i used “DiorSkin Nude Tan in Light” which is a (Heathy glow enhancing powder) it adds a bit of sparkle to your face and makes it look like you just got off the plane. I purchased this for a whopping $60.  I placed this in a 3 motion on either side of my face and down my neck making it deeper at the cheeks to get more of a chiseled look.

Blush

Now before you go look for this brand it sadly has been discontinued which sucks but i made sure i stocked up on it before it left the stores and I’m sure there are a ton of products that are similar in colour.  I used “Marcelle cream blush in Colour Raspberry” purchased for $13 at Shopper’s Drug Mart. Placing this just on the apples of my cheeks giving me the “I’m alive look” lol!

Lips

To get that Kylie Jenner look, I’ve been watching Youtube tutorials and was recently at a photoshoot wear the makeup artist basically told its just over drawing your natural line above the cupid’s bow and just underneath your bottom lip in the centre with a nude coloured lipliner, that simple.

However for myself, i already a full Lip so what i do to make them just a tad fuller is i apply my Lip colour first which in the case it’s a “Baby Pink matte colour”, not sure wear i purchased this from considering the tube doesn’t have a label which sucks but sephora has many brands that carry basically  the same colour.

So after i apply the desired lip colour, i usually only do this if I’m wearing a gloss, chapstick, or a pink colour. i outline just the cupid’s bow and underneath the centre of the bottom lip with “Inner Rim Linner” from Tarte purchased for $23 at Sephora, smudging it in for an almost barely there plump. Now this product is actually supposed to be for the waterline making you have that “I’m awake effect” but i feel like it can be used aa a lip liner.

That’s all for now Beauties and i hope everyone enjoyed their Valentines’s Day Single or Not, I know I enjoyed my Netflix watching, lazy chocolate eating Day haha!
