At the end of every month I’ll be featuring 5 of my favourite beauty products, old standbys, as well as some tips & tricks I’ve got up my sleeve.
As far as eye makeup goes, a black liquid-lined cat-eye has basically been my staple since I was 15 years old. Which is still fine, but lately I’ve been exploring some more options. I stepped into Sephora and walked out with my new favourite eye-shadow palette:
Sephora Moonshadow Baked Pallette: $28
The best part about this is not only the colors, but the fact that you can use these wet, which makes them more intense.
I’m thinking of going for the other color palette too
And now I present God’s gift to your upper lip:
Bliss Poetic Waxing; Wax strips, face: $10-25
I think we can all agree we feel the same way about facial hair
These strips are so easy to use, and less expensive and more convenient than any other alternatives. You rub the strip between your hands for 20-30 secs to heat them up, and then apply where necessary. The same strip can be used up to 5 times. Apply in the direction of hair growth, and rip off in the opposite direction. Just make sure you pull your skin super tight when you rip the strip off, to lessen the pain.
The after care oil works really well, just make sure you don’t make the same dumb mistake I did and try to use a cotton ball…it got stuck all over my face. A doused Q-tip works better.
Here’s a throwback for you girls
Freeman’s Cucumber Peel Off Mask: $4.49
This stuff has been around FOR-ever, and reminds me of having slumber parties full of make-overs, prank phone calls, and coreographing dance moves with my bffs
Do you know I only just started using dry shampoo this year? I’m not sure what I was doing before this. I use this one because it’s cheap, and the closest Rite-aid to my home carries it:
Tresemme Dry Shampoo: $5.29
Don’t wash your hair every day. It strips it of the natural oils it needs to become healthier and stronger. This stuff is great if you want to stretch the days between washes to the max, and will keep you looking fresh and perfect.
Lastly…let’s be honest; I HATE shaving my legs. Only because the razor burn I suffer afterwards is so excruciatingly uncomfortable and itchy, and lasts forever. I’ve tried what seems like everything – $20 razors, all kinds of different shaving creams, a million different lotions for afterwards..when finally, last week I had a brainbow
Why have I never thought of this before? This junk provided instant relief that lasted all night, and you can buy this anywhere for like, $3.
That’s it for October yyyaaa”lllllll
