CHIFFON SKIRT; EXPRESS vs. F21

so I was doing my usual online shopping today and guess what I stumbled onto?! forever21 has their own "version" of the chiffon-styled skirt that I have recently purchased from express. if you don't know, you can find out how the skirt looks like in my previous posts under the " october haul; part1"   but yeah - I couldn't believe it. I had already gotten the skirt  (one sale) from express at a good price (about $15 - excluding tax; also, due to some tag mistakes)...but anyways, forever21 has theirs on sale as well, at $15.84! now, let's discuss the original prices for each and their comparisons!

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 :]
