Fall Nails

Style and trends change with the seasons it amazes me how each new season brings a new look. From clothes to hair and even our nails. As fall approaches I have been into my nails more than ever before. Honestly I am not a fan of my hands they are short and my middle finger is slightly twisted (from my view). However no one seems to notice  ha ha. We all have weird quirks and mine are hands. Enough about my quirks lets talk about nails. 

The latest nail trend is obviously gel nails. I purchased an at home quick gel nail topcoat that works wonders. Apart from gel nails we all love the fall colors. Check out a few of my favorite below. 

  
 I Can’t end this post without sharing a super easy tip. 

What You Need

  1. Nail polish 
  2. Basecoat
  3. Top coat
  4. Ice
  5. Water
  6. Bowl

How it Works 

First grab your bowl and place the ice inside. Next pour the water on top of the ice water. Set that aside for later. Paint your nails as normal. Take your time of course. Be sure to clean the edges to give them that salon look. Now place your wet nails in the bowl and count to 60. Take your nails out give them a shake and wha la. Your nails are now dry and ready to hit the road. 

This works! I have done it countless times and it never fails. Let me know how it works for you. 

DIY Egg Mask

Today it’s all about the face. This face mask has many benefits and is super easy to do. Be sure to check out my video Tutorial to see exactly how I did it. 
What you’ll need

1 Egg
2 Bowls

1 Brush 

Single ply tissue

How it Works:

Crack the egg into one of the bowls, being careful not to crack the yolk because we will be using it later. Now separate the egg white and egg yolk. Break apart some small pieces of tissue; it doesn’t need to be neat. Just make sure the pieces overlap a little bit so they can come off as one big piece.

Benefits:
– Great way to deal with mild acne and scarring

– Cleansing of dirt and debris with the help of the homemade blackhead strips

– Will help decrease clogged pores, blackheads and dirt

– Helps reduce rosacea, large pores, and fine lines (Also help give temporary relief to deep lines)

Then pull off the strip as a whole and VOILA, clear beautiful skin.

Now to close up the pores and give your skin a beautiful shine, lets apply the egg yolk. Stir the same way you did the egg whites. Once it’s stirred, apply to the skin with your brush. You will feel your skin is tightening and the yolk is dried, you may wash it off. Then use your daily cleanser. I used my lush Herbalism. And you’re done!!! 

I truly enjoyed this mask and will be doing it every Sat as a little freshener. 

Monthly Favorites

   

Top to Bottom 

  1. Hikari lipgloss I received in my Ipsy Glam bag. This gloss is amazing. I love how soft and smooth it goes on and stays for quite some time. 
  2. Lush Vanishing Cream this moisturizer gets five stars from me. My face has never been smoother. I am one hundred percent statisfied. 
  3. Lush Herbalism. I have final got the use of this down pack. It took much getting use to as it is rather messy. Despite the messiness it has helped clear my skin and even my texture. 
  4. Mary Kay Oil Mattifier has been a new addition and fits right in. I apply this after my moisturizer. This has brought the oiliness in my skin under much control. 

What’s on your augur beauty favorites list? Let me know below. I love trying new things. 

Ipsy Glam Bag

After jumping on the beauty box band wagon with my #Walmartbeautybox I decided to subscribe for another. This one is the ever so popular Ipsy Glam Bag. Ipsy personalizes your bag each month just for you. After your initial signup with Ipsy they ask you a few beauty quiz questions to get to know you and your style. Once you have answered all questions accurately you perfect glam bag is created. No glam bag is identical because just like you its one of a kind. How fabulous is that a monthly personalizes box for $10.00 bucks. Now that’s a deal! Check out my first glam bag just in time for my birthday month

I loved this packing super bright and cute ย 

The makeup bag is adorable and easy to just grab and go


Each bag comes with a pamphlet ย 
This bag consisted of Hikari lipgloss, Starlooks black eyeliner pen, Lather ultra mild face wash, and a Briogeo volumizing hair spray.


My favorite item from this months bag is the Hikari lipgloss in the color merlot.


For my first Ipsy Bag I was not one hundred percent satisfied. You may have noticed 5 items in the picture however I only mentioned four. That is because after capturing the picture I noticed a strong smell coming from the nail polish box. To my surprise upon opening it the bottle had exploded in the box. So it was of no use and the color was a very pretty purple. These things can happen when going through the mailing process. Other than that I only really found the lip gloss and eyeliner pen rather useful. Let’s see what next months bag has in store. With name brands like NYX, Too Faced, Bare Minerals and more I am sure Septembers glam bag will be just right for me!

Don’t wait until next month join in on the Ipsy glam bag fun right now !

Spin for Perfect Skin

I finally purchased a facial brush cleanser. I know i am rather late in the game but as they say “better late than never”. I was super excited to see the price it went for on Groupon. I have been shopping on Groupon for years now and i never seen a brush this cheap. The price was $15.00 now that is  deal that cant be beat! Enough of my rambling check out the video below to see me usingit and hear my thoughts.

Beauty Box

The beauty box world is booming with new boxes on the market daily. There are countless to choose from that range in price and contents. After watching many many unboxings on YouTube and reviews on blogs. I have officially signed up for two box subscriptions. Today’s box comes from Walmart. Yes you read correct Walmart! When I say just about everyone has a box knowing that Walmart has one is the icing on the cake. Their box has its own unique setup. Unlike many subscriptions that are month to month their box comes by seasons. So as we all know there are four seasons in a year which equals to four box subscriptions you will receive. This was my first box to come and it was in time for the summer season. Check out my contents below….

   
   
My first thoughts were that the packaging was rather colorful and creative. Once I opened the wrapping to see what was underneath I was pleased with the contents. 

   
    
   
As you can see I recieved two full sized products and three trial size. Overall I am well please with the box and its contents. Now for what you have been waiting for. The price $5.00 a box now that is budget friendly beauty. Their are very few box subscriptions on the market for $5.00. This is a great price point for anyone to start testing the box subscription waters. A must try from me. 

What box subscriptions are you subscribed to?
