So recently I did a really large makeup haul (I’ll do a review on the products later) and have been trying out different looks (a couple which are featured). I like to have my makeup look more natural, mostly because I’m just experimenting at this point. My goal was to build a pretty large makeup collection before I leave for college so that whenever I want to wear makeup, I will be able to wear it (and have it be really cute). I’ve learned a lot of tips from YouTube and just blogs in general. The lady who did my makeup for prom teaches classes on how to do makeup, so I plan on taking one before I leave, so I’ll not only know how to do my makeup but how to take care of my skin. I have a couple YouTube channel’s I have been checking out. One of them is Cameron Lelia’s. She attends the high school that I graduated from, so I’ve been able to see her makeup in person. Being able to see her makeup in person has let me know that I really love how she does her makeup. She’s pretty new to YouTube, so make sure you check out her page! Remember that makeup is supposed to make you feel as beautiful as you truly are. It is supposed to enhance your features and allow you to gain confidence. Remember that you’re beautiful just the way you are!
During the summer it is important to take care of your skin. Though many people don’t feel the need to wear sunscreen, it is really important to wear it when you’re in the sun for long periods of time. Sunscreen protects from sunburns but most importantly it protects from skin cancer. The face moisturizer, Restorative Day Crème by Arbonne , which keeps my T zone from getting so oily. It also has SPF 20 in it. I also use Blistex’s Medicated Berry Balm, which has SPF 15 in it. It leaves my lips pretty soft and I like it a lot. It’s not so oily like Bath and Body Work’s Rose Salve (which is one of my other favorites). The sun is really good for you (it’s healing and gives you vitamin D) but you have to make sure you’re staying safe!!
This is my first post in my new category, skin care! I realized I have a lot of useless skin care tips, just as I do for hair care, to share!
So my first tip will be about your lips. Exfoliating your lips is really helpful. It removes the dead skin, leaving your lips really soft and back to their true color. To do this you just need to mix a small amount of olive oil and sugar (I just used white sugar). After mixing, you rub it into your lips. You rub your lips in circular motions. Use a washcloth to rid of the olive oil and sugar (it tastes really bad but it’s safe so it doesn’t matter if you taste it). Then moisturize after with Vaseline. Doing this once a week will help your lips stay super soft and hydrated! Also remember dry lips are your body’s way of expressing thirst, so also increase your water intake!
