Face routine – BRIDES

Hello beauties!

Since I get a lot concerns from brides and anyone in a bridal party for that matter. I decided I was going to give my best pre-wedding face routine I have.

For one, do not get a facial within the week or 2 prior to your big day. You’ll most probably break out. A facial is meant to deeply cleanse the skin therefore all impurities tend to come out within that week or next following your facial.

Ingredients you’ll be needing:

  1. Baking soda
  2. Coconut oil
  3. Grounded coffee
  4. Night-time Moisturizer

The week of your wedding every night I recommend cleansing with a natural and underestimated product… baking soda. Take a tablespoon of baking soda in a small cup and add a bit of water, enough to turn it into a paste. Remove all makeup with either a wipe or a cloth and regular face cleanser. Rinse your face, then slowly and very gently massage the baking soda all over for about a minute, especially around the nose area. Rinse well and pat dry with a towel. Use your favorite night time moisturizer.

The night before the big day, I recommend the following. Take 2 tablespoons of raw organic coconut oil with a teaspoon of ground coffee, mix well. Remove all makeup once again, cleanse face with your favorite cleanser. Pat dry. With clean fingers, work the coconut oil and coffee bean mix onto your skin using circular motion. Again slowly and very gently massage all over for a good minute or so. You can even sit and enjoy some relaxing music. Rinse with help of a cloth. It’s ok if you have a bit of an oily residue, do not remove it. Let that oily residue seep into your skin overnight for extra moisture and hydration. 

If you are worried about oily skin, don’t worry!!

In the morning just rinse your face very well and that’s it! Don’t need to put anything else. 

Just remember oily skin is easier to work with than having dry, patchy skin. Trust me!!

That’s it, hope you enjoy this.

Nars creamy vs fitMe dupe?

Hello!!

I decided to put this to the “test”. I’m a HUGE fan of the Nars radiant creamy concealer in shade Vanilla. So I figured let me try out for real to see if it’s really a dupe.

I got the lightest shade for the FitMe concealer in #10

I compared both on my hand and right there I noticed the color was wayyy off. Maybelline fit me was darker, yellow undertone and felt like a lighter formula.

Nars is light, peachy undertone and very thick and coveragey.

So for me it was a total miss and almost disappointing from all the things I heard.

THUMBS DOWN. NOT A DUPE!

Let me know what else you’d like for me to test.

Changes on lashes

Hello my beauty queens!

I’ve been using a popular brand for lashes that was pretty affordable but that looked pretty natural. Unfortunetly due to low product availability, I felt obliged to change and find a new supplier. 

So I figured if I was going to change brand might as well get some good quality  lashes… plus who ever knows me really well, they know that they need to be very natural looking. 

Due to these changes prices will not include lashes anymore and depending on style the prices will vary between 5$ to 20$ additional to the service provided.

Thank you for understanding and I’m only doing this for better results 😉 

Love you guys xox 

First impression smashbox primer oil

Hello beauties!

So I thought of sharing my first impression on the new smashbox photo finish primer oil. 

I got a free sample with my Sephora purchases. Since I have extremely dry skin I figured it would be awesome.

It smells very nice. It has a light kind of sweet gentle smell. I applied some with my hands on my clean face with no makeup on just moisturizer. It had a nice smooth consistency, it spread really smoothly. 

I may have put a little bit too much though because my makeup later on was easily sliding off. So because of that I wasn’t TOO impressed. I expected it to have that dry oil effect I guess but I really think I put too much product. 

I will try it again though but will apply it with a sponge so it can absorb all excess.

Keep you posted
