Cleansing 101

I think it is super important to wash your face know the old adage dont forget to wash your face before you go to bed...your pores open up and suck all the stuff into your skin."Yeck" Anyways here is a little list to help you along..Happy cleaning: Remove makeup Gently use your favorite eye makeup remover and sweep across your eyes....i say gently cause rubbing causes wrinkles. Next use favorite cleanser....i prefer noxema for oily skin and a creamy cleanser such as the line found at kohls Good skin...great smelling and gentle. Dry and mousturize...thats it....this is what i do to keep my skin looking young and blemish free.

Learning more about makeup

I guess I thought I knew a lot about makeup but recently Ive discovered that I have more to learn. I have been watching a lot of the DIY videos on you tube for mixing medium, brush deordorizer and recentyl how to display my brushes like they are displayed in sephora!!
This also forced me to go through my makeup only to realize I held on to a lot more than I thought and to get rid of my old makeup.....if you havent used it in 6 months definitely pitch is what I found as a sort of timetable for pitching used make-up:

Step 1
Keep track of the dates that you buy makeup if possible. Most of it will lose effectiveness after about a year, and should be thrown out at that time.
Step 2
Watch your makeup for caking, cracking or drying out. If any of these happen, it is probably past time to throw away the offending product.
Step 3
Don't share your makeup to avoid gathering excess oils or as germs. If you share for some reason, it may be time to throw that makeup away, especially lip and eye makeup.

Store your makeup in a cool dry place— not in your car and preferable not on your bathroom counter where it will be exposed to steam and possibly to water.

I have always been a fan of beauty and skin care. But I think that recently I have developed a knack for making my own beauty solutions and learning about DIY projects in skincare. I have recently starting searching on youtube for videos:

There are a few great beauty channels on youtube: Enkore beauty is probably my fave. This guy is entertaining and a wealth of knowledge.

I have made the mixing medium and used with my MAC and NYX pigments and they have kept up all day. Recipe included below:

3 parts water

1 part glycerine (Glycerine can be found at Wal-mart, Grocery stores, Rite Aid etc Its with the first aid items.

See instructional video for more…… This is really great and I have to say so cheap to make....Have fun!!
