UPDATE/Military Trend

for those who follow me on youtube; sorry for not updating for awhile. apparently, I've gotten sick with bronchitis. it's really hard to record myself talking since it's flu-like symptoms, plus shortness of breath. I'm trying to get better as quick as I can. ><"
---------------------------------------------------------------

also, I've fallen for the "military trend"; I can't quite officially call it that though - more like I've become more admirable towards the michael jackson/military trend. I've always liked camouflage clothes and the olive military color (since I was uber young). I'm currently looking for a military-styled jacket - I think that's what I'm mainly missing from the closet; besides military styled boots/booties. It's hard finding the perfect military-styled jacket. Especially at a great and affordable price. Must be olive color or brown. I'm trying extremely hard to avoid black since I have too many black apparel.


THE "MILITARY" TREND :

Here are some " examples"  of the perfect jacket for me. [disregard the colors]

GET PAID TO TWEET!

I found this site a few weeks back and thought I give it a try. I've read almost everything off the site already. Basically this site is offering "exchangable services". This is just a term a made for better understanding. But you can sign up as an "influencer" or "advertiser". they offer brief descriptions under each one before selecting, so you can know which one best suits you. After that, you can link your mylikes to twitter, facebook, or youtube. All you do is select which ad you would like to advertise for -> through your status -> via fb, twitter, or yt.


I would like to refer you guys to this site.

Express is offering 40% off in its stores on Black Friday. Gift cards and clearance items are excluded. *sad face* The offer lasts until noon (12pm). After 12, the sale continues....BUT shoppers get 30% off instead of 40% off. So wake up early for a better deal!! I know I will :)

Life Span of Your Makeup



Mascara
average life span: 4 to 6 months

Mascaras tend to start smelling like burnt plastic between 4-6 months. Always check!

Eyeliners
average life span: 1 year

Pencils: throw them away if the tip starts oozing or if some sort of oily substance forms
Liquid: about 6 months..

Foundation
average life span: 1 year

Keeping foundation away from sunlight or any type of heat helps the life span.

Concealer
average life span: 1 year

Always keep the container tightly closed and sealed to have a lasting shelf life.

Blush and eye shadow
average life span: 1 to 2 years

Creams last about 1 year; powders about 2.

Lipstick
average life span: 8 months

Life span of your lipstick can be less than 8 months if it's no longer in its original form; or if it has come into contact with a sore or some sort of infection - throw it away!

Makeup brushes
average life span: 1 year or longer (depending on brand or how well you take care of them)

Natural-hair brushes: (used for powder) — wash can clean them ONCE a week
Synthetic brushes: (used for creams) wash TWICE a week

VS EYESHADOW PRIMER


As you all may know or seen in my previous video, I enjoy going to Victoria's Secret every now and then to pick up my FREE panty :) Be sure to subscribe to their pink nation if you wanna do the same! But yeah -- I was browsing in their makeup section and I happen to spot their "Pro Lasting FX EyeShadow Primer" so I had to try it out right away. Also, I apologize for not taking a pic of the swatch I did at the store. I guess..I was too excited lol. But anyways..as you can see from the picture above, the primer is packaged in a narrow-point, white, plastic tube (very similar to the TFSI). The only size they offer is 0.28 oz and it's only $8!! Although, when I squeezed out the primer...oil came out first. I don't know about you guys, but that's a turn off. If you have oily lids, this is not the primer for you. After wiping off the oil, I rubbed a little of the primer on my arm for swatching. Since they have all their eyeshadows out for testing, I decided to test it with their satin collection. I noticed a slight difference from the non-primed and the already primed. Again, the difference is not that big. In conclusion, the primer does do its job. So, for those of you that are looking for a cheaper alternative to UDPP and TFSI, be sure to check out this primer. But if you would like to go a lot cheaper, try E.L.F's primer. I will be doing a review on it in my next post! So stay tuned!

How To Remove Your Makeup Without Makeup Remover

We all know that cheap makeup removers don't really do their job very well. And a decent or high-end makeup remover could cost about $10 at minimum. Making your own homemade makeup remover can save you a lot! Below are regular, everyday items you can find in your very own home.



Everyday Household Items That Will Remove Makeup:
¤ Olive oil
¤Baby oil
¤ Jojoba oil
¤ Almond oil
¤ Grapeseed oil
¤ Vaseline (or any Petroleum Jelly)
¤ Unscented Baby Wipes



  #1
1 cup water
1 1/2 tbs baby shampoo (the tearless kind – Johnson&johnson)
1/8 tsp baby oil (mineral oil recommended)

  #2
1/8 cup grapeseed oil
1 tbs castor oil

 #3
1 tbs olive oil (extra virgin)
1 tbs castor oil
2 tsp canola oil (or 1 tsp is fine as well)

 #4
2 tbs cucumber juice
1 tbs baby oil

 #5
2 tbs water
1 tbs jojoba oil


-- DON'T FORGET TO SHAKE IT UP/MIX WELL; PUT IT IN A EMPTY, CLEAN BOTTLE.

** KEEP IN MIND:
- olive oil and baby oil are good for removing eye makeup



FOOD Items That Will Remove Makeup:
¤ cucumber juice
¤ orange juice
¤ lemon juice/peel
¤ potato juice

How To Fix Broken EyeShadow


You Will Need
:
¤ small transparent plastic bag (zipblock will do)
¤ broken eyeshadow
¤ rubbing alcohol
¤ bobby pin
¤ small CLEAN, flat object (dime/penny will do)
¤ cloth (preferably something smooth/flat surfaced - not a towel)

Instructions:
(1) gather the pieces of broken eyeshadow and place it in the bag
(2) try to get all the pieces to the bottom or corner of the bag
(3) add a few small drops of rubbing alcohol into the bag (you want a pastey-like form; will also disinfect the exposed shadow)
(4) use your bobby pin to blend the shadow very well together
(5) squeeze or scoop (with the bobby pin) the shadow back into the original container
(6) take your dime or penny and place it in the towel; make sure the towel is wrapping the coin (coin is for a flat top surface)
(7) use the flat top cloth to press down on the shadow
(8) lastly, just leave it alone until your shadow has returned to its original texture


hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial :]
