Most people don't like wearing tons of makeup, but everyone has their preferences. You don’t have to spend hours doing it, either. Once you know how too, you’ll see just how much makeup can accentuate your best features and hide those that aren’t as favorable. Makeup is a form of art, the unique thing about it is there are so many tips and tricks to disguise the eye. if you wanted a wider eye you line your waterline with white eyeliner, a slimmer face you contour your face, want a dewy face affect you could use a highlighter. Makeup is all about placement and contrast, how you want to enhance your features is up to you. The reason makeup is an art is you can express yourself and you need an imagination in order to create the eye look you plan on wearing that day, also know what colors complement each other and most importantly your skin tone. But, just remember there are endless tips and rules to keep you looking fabulous, but as long as you feel comfortable and beautiful in your own skin is all that matters.

Winter Tips:

Even if you love a winter wonderland, your skin may not. The chilly, dry air and shorter days can bring on a dry, dull complexion. The secret is having the right products to create the perfect look. Here are the some tips that I swear by:
  1. A healing ointment. A tube of Aquaphor does triple-duty against chapped skin. I always have a tube on hand to help with dry lips, hydrate patches of skin. It especially works wonders if you apply it before bedtime.
  2. Exfoliating scrub. To achieve fresh-looking skin, you need to slough off the top layer of dead cells. That’s why I recommend using a gentle exfoliating scrub once or twice a week; a drugstore brand, such as Aveeno or Neutrogena, does the job. Just don’t go overboard. Exfoliate too much, and you’ll strip the skin of its protective oils.
  3. My last and final tip, always remember to moisturize your skin, by applying plenty of lotion and oils such as the Neutrogena body oil for that soft baby butt feel.

Well, i hope you guys found these tips helpful :)

Nivea Men Post Shave Balm

So back at the end of April one of my favorite bloggers NikkieTutorials mentioned the NIVEA Men Post Shave Balm in her April Hits as one of the best face primers she's ever used.. so obviously I was intrigued. Because one of the most used ingredients in the aftershave balm is glycerine it means that anything that you put on top of it will cling to it, ie. your foundation will cling to it keeping your foundation last all day long. You apply a small amount onto a clean face and rub the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm into your face, at first when applied it is very watery but as you begin to rub it in some more it becomes tacky and thats when you apply your foundation making it last all day! My foundation looked absolutely flawless and managed to stay perfect all day long, even in the areas of my face that would normally be extremely oily! Super impressed with how well this worked, I felt like I had an expensive primer on it worked that good! Considering the fact that it cost less than $10 which is an absolute bargain compared to what I'd normally spend on a primer.So impressed with how well this worked for me and I'll definitely be repurchasing, thanks to NikkieTutorials for the heads up!

Many people forget the importance of maintaining your brushes clean. Yes, cleaning your brushes can be a hassle. Having a clean brush makes the foundation or any product go on the face smoother and you don't have old products going onto your skin either. For example, when blending in the crease you always want to make sure the brush is clean so you won’t have any old products that was on the brush previously on your lid now. You could go to any store like Ulta, or Sephora to buy brush cleaners. But, I personally like using a bar of soap when cleaning my brushes. When it comes to cleaning your brushes here are some steps in doing so:

1.      Begin by running your brushes under lukewarm water, rinsing out all of the residual makeup. Try to focus on the actual bristles while avoiding the part of the brush where handle meets the head, as this can loosen the glue over time
2.      Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and a squirt of shampoo, and gently swirl your brush tip in the water. If you need to, you can also swirl the brush in the palm of your hand to work up a lather.
3.      Rinse the brush tip under running water once again. Repeat steps two and three until the water runs clear from the brush,
4.      Use a cloth to wipe your brush clean, reshaping the bristles as you go.
5.      Lay your brushes flat on a cloth to dry.
