Make Up Essentials For Beginners

Originally posted on THE MILLENNIAL EXCLUSIVE Blog:
The world of beauty is as big as the ocean and just like the ocean it can seem intimidating. I mean probably as I type this hundreds of new products hit the shelf (probably). So where does someone start in the makeup aisle? Well have no fear because as a beginner myself, here are my go to products for an easy everyday makeup look (it won’t break the bank either). It’s important to note that your skin and lips should be moisturized prior to applying any makeup to avoid dry spots and a cakey look PRIMER Priming the face helps to keep your makeup look in place and lasting all day. One important thing to note with primers is if they are water or oil based. Pair the appropriate one with your water or oil based foundation to make sure your makeup doesn’t melt throughout the day. CONCEALER/ FOUNDATION I mainly use concealer on problem spots such as acne marks or dark spots such as around my nose…

Drugstore Brands I want to try more from!

Since starting my blog I have got much better at venturing into new brands, but I feel as though there are still many brands I want to explore more. I’ve seen a few of these posts recently so I thought I would give you my own spin on it, starting with the drugstore brands I want to try more from. Revlon -?Revlon is a brand I have always been aware of but for some reason I have barely tried any of their products, except from this gorgeous pink lipstick I received in a Glossybox. They have just released a whole range of new mascaras which I would love to try, and I would also like to try their Color Stay foundation. NYX -?When Valentina & I did our beauty swap, she kindly sent me some Nyx products. I have fallen in love with the butter gloss in Tiramisu, and I literally want to try every shade. Their HD concealer has also caught my attention and also their primers. H&M Beauty -?I…

Nail Tech Advice!

Hey guys! I’ve had so many requests to do a post for the aspiring nail technicians out there. I put together some of my top pieces of advice and tricks that no one tells you about beforehand. These tips should help anyone who is looking to get into the beauty industry for hair, nails, or makeup. If you have any more questions, please leave them below! Do Your Research Before Picking a salon This is so important when starting out in the beauty industry because this is where you will begin building your clientele and making money. Accepting the first or second salon offer could be detrimental if the salon isn’t the right fit for you. I suggest checking into the salon reviews, looking up their social media sites, and taking the time to see the salon in person. Don’t Expect A Lot Of Income In The Beginning Developing steady income in the beauty industry will be a challenge in the beginning. It takes time to get your name out…

Is it really THAT important to wear sunscreen?

Originally posted on Pretty Little Lewis:
Short answer: yes! And you should be wearing SPF 30-50 everyday. Here’s why: You may not think twenty minutes in the sun could possibly do?that much damage. But you are wrong. Even a few seconds of sun exposure without SPF protection will mutate your cells and could lead to a form of skin cancer later on. Gross. It can take up to 30 years (what!!) for sun damage to appear on your skin. Which means those years you spent at the beach with little or no sunblock (and you thought, hmm I don’t really get freckles or dark spots so I must be all good!) will catch up with you. You are not invincible! Start slapping it on now to avoid future #skinproblems. The sun causes dark spots on your skin. So if you’re trying every kind of spot cream and skin product to try hide them, the easiest solution is just to exfoliate, and load up on sunscreen. You should be wearing sunscreen EVERYWHERE. Not just your face,…

Fake Tan Favorites

Originally posted on Face Camera Action:
Fake tan is one of the best inventions ever. The sun is so damaging to the skin and yes you hear about it on the news and social media all the time but I don’t think everyone actually recognises how serious it can be and how awful it can be once your skin is damaged. You only get one body and it really is so important to look after yourself. Everyone wants to be tanned, especially in the summer and us girls go to all lengths to be the golden goddess we secretly are and don’t get me wrong I admit I have not always been the best at looking after my skin and have had my fair share of sun beds but recently I have really been looking into how much the sun can do and it honestly is shocking! Moral is the story is that you should stick to the fake stuff! My favourite brand of fake tan is Fake Bake. This tan is used by people…
