Eyeliner? Dos and don’ts!!

10 Sep

Ok there are a lot of people that wonder how to do the perfect eyeliner.  Do you line the top or bottom?  Do you only line the bottom.  Do you line half way?  What are the Do’s and Don’ts.  Ok so I was watch So You Think You Can Dance!  I know some of you might love it some of you might hate it, but I always find interest in how they do makeup.  And one of the girls was supposed to look kind of older and tired.  And this is what made me start thinking about this post in the first place.  So depending on the size of your eyes you don’t want to much eyeliner like the first one.  You can always do eyeliner on just the top line, but you might not want to do the winged eye if your eye naturally droops it is hard to get the right winged eye look.  If you do the top great!!  But you should NEVER just do the bottome!!  That is a no no it makes you look old and tired and that is EXACTLY how this dancers makeup was and I just had to laugh and thus do this post!! 🙂  And ladies don’t just go halfway it just looks like you forgot to go the rest of the way.  I think it just looks so ridiculous.  You can always do thicker on the outer edge and get thinner as you come into the inner eye, but smudge the line make sure some of the color goes in eyeliner is supposed to be where your lashes come out to make them look thicker and more enhanced but if you do to think of a line or go halfway or only do your bottom lash it can look bad all the way around!!  Also PS if you try to google or search for pictures

of people wearing eyeliner halfway on the bottom line or eyeliner only on the bottome lash line.  They are like non existant.  It was hard to find these two.  So if most people don’t do it and especially celebrities and makeup artists.  It is probably a good idea not to do it.  JUST a THOUGHT!!  🙂  Happy Makeup Monday!!

Turkey Gobble?

25 Apr

Have you ever been to the Amusement park and been by the booth that guesses your age?  Usually on a women one of the main ways someone can guess a woman’s age is by looking at your neck and hands.  Do you have a turkey gobble?  If you do get a scarf and hide it 🙂 haha actually you need to make sure you moisturize, lighten age spots, wear spf, and exfoliate.  All the things I have talked about in other War on Wrinkle posts you need to make sure you do it all to your neck and declotee area.  Make sure you do your skin care to your bra line foundation to your jaw line 🙂  You always want to make sure you don’t end up with the younger looking face and older neck.  I do not want to end up with a turkey gobble.  So I will make sure I always do my skin care antiaging on my face, neck and hands.  If you ever have extra moisturizer or anti-aging products put the excess down your neck than on to your hands and arms.  Some people tell me that they wipe it on a towel or wash it off  AAAGH!  Why on earth would you waste perfectly good products.  You paid good money for that.  🙂  Remember take good care of your skin!  Don’t end up with a Turkey Gobble!!

An Apple a Day!!

19 Apr

An apple a day keeps the pounds away!  Now this might not always be true if you eat all bad things every other time, but if you don’t want to watch or write down all the calories if you focus on eating healthier things a lot of times you will slowly eat more and more healthy items.  I find the more fruits and vegetables I eat the less other stuff I eat and that isn’t counting calories that is just something that naturally happens.  Now start with one thing and you can do more later.  In the winter I find I eat less of them because there aren’t as many in season, but I am back focusing on eating healthier and eating more vegetables.  I LOVE crisp fresh apples.  When I am craving a treat sometimes I just need something a little sweet and I find if I go too far in the sweets than it makes me crave more sweets.  I find if I do something a little sweet and especially something that has natural sweetness I don’t crave as much after.  Now don’t get me wrong anything chocolate and peanut butter is totally up my ally.  I just need to keep them as a sometimes sweet not an everyday or every minute sweet 🙂  HAHA which sometimes that is how often I want them.  Eat an apple stay healthy and strong

Flawless and Fair vs. Wrinkly and Dark!

18 Apr

How many of us LOVE the sun.  I do and I LOVED sun bathing.  I would do all the outside chores, I would play the guitar out in the sun.  I would lay a blanket out on the grass and do homework.  I would do a ton just out in the sun! I used to try to be two to three shades darker in foundation and all over.  I have a friend that LOVES to fake bake and she used to tell me “Tan fat is better than white fat!”  haha still makes me laugh.  Although sometimes I think that is true.  I finally decided I would rather have flawless fair skin than Wrinkly dark skin.  Now don’t get me wrong I wish I was just a couple shades darker, but if I have to choose between aging and fair skin I have decided I would rather be fair.  The FDA and health department says we need to have atleast 30spf on our faces every day whether the sun is out or not.  I have a friend that got skin cancer from the iradescent lights in her office building.  You never know where the damage is coming from!  Decide today you are going to take better care of your skin!  I know for me.  I have not sun bathed since high school I go out in the sun.  But I don’t go out for the only purpose to sunbathe and I also put sunscreen on.  I know some of us that are oily skin have problems with sunscreen because it just makes us feel oily.  I had to find a sunscreen that is made specifically for the face and that is light.  Then it didn’t make me more oily and make me feel like grease pit.  So make sure you find the right kind 🙂  Much love to you and your skin!  Take care of it because guess what you will have it for the rest of your life.  You might can pay a doctor to move it around but unless you get a face plant you will have the skin you have chosen to take care of or the lack therof.

Worst Ways to Age yourself!!

11 Apr

 Ok so maybe not the WORST thing but DEFINITELY the worst way with fashion! How many of you are in the wrong or have seen it happen. One of the ways that will make you look 10 to 20 years older is Staying in the decade you think you looked the best!! 🙂 Don’t be mad so sorry if I am going to make you upset. If you haven’t had a compliment on your hair in the last two weeks CUT it, Dye it, or Buy some more of it!! 🙂 Lol! Hair ages you so fast. If you have a ratted hair nest on top of your head and you can see the air in between it. That is TOO RATTED!! 🙂 Now don’t get me wrong I do tease my hair but you aren’t supposed to see the ratted part. Give your hair some lift or volume, but don’t make it look TOO big. Don’t have platinum hair even if you think that is the color of your natural hair color or it “used” to be it isn’t anymore it probably has some gray. I think making your hair a warm brown or red makes you look so young. You lose pigment in skin, hair, lips, etc… That is why you want to warm everything up. Warm hair, warm cheeks (coral), warm lips (coral or warm pink), warm foundation (most women not all). Also what’s up with the MOM JEANS!! Ugh! One of the WORST offenses! Get a modern cut not low rise but midrise. It will only make you look thinner because it will it you in the middle of the belly and not bulge out under the waist to make you look PREGNANT!! haha ok did you notice I went on a rant today 🙂 I probably will every once in awhile but really I promise get something a little modern, but don’t go completely the other direction and try to be too young that doesn’t work either. Don’t wear the worded Tees that are too tight and usually too short. Get a straight leg pant with dark denim it is ALWAYS more slimming! And a fitted top, not tight 🙂 there is a difference. If I didn’t LOVE my job I might be a shopping assistant and dress people!! How much fun would that be!

Blog award

29 Mar

Hi guys!  I am so thrilled to announce that I got nominated for a blog award.  It’s an extra special one to me, because it is a matter of personal preferance – basically it means someone cared enough to take the time to link to me in their blog.  Thanks to christenjackson  – I got a Leibster! We are both new at the blog seen but she has got a really fun blog.  My fav are the nail polish variations.  Try Modbod nails.  So fun and I just don’t think about those things I usually do plain classic french tip.  I think I am worried to be too outlandish 🙂 with my nails I am sure some people realize in talking a lot of other things that statement is probably not true, but it is with my nails. 🙂  I just think that is so amazing and her ind. cherry pies look so yummy haven’t gotten a chance to make it yet, but I want too 🙂  Also she has lost a considerable amount of weight and I absolutely love that!  A weight loss journal helped me lose 60lbs and that is a Great way to do it. 🙂 Check her out!  http://cjackplay.wordpress.com/

Also – I am straight jacking the description of the award from her blog, because we all know that the best thing about having friends is permanantly borrowing stuff from them.

This is how the Liebster is described:

This award we’ve discovered is given to bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. The Liebster Award takes its name from the German word meaning ‘Beloved, Dearest or Favorite.’

I am truly honored and very happy that part of receiving this awards means paying it forward. Here’s how it works:

  1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them.
  2. Post the award to your blog.
  3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you appreciate and value (It’s a great way to get to word out there about other blogs!!)
  4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have received this award.

So as I started this blogging world I have found that I love reading other peoples blogs and commenting and learning how they live their life, and I am super excited to feature 5 other bloggers.  Quite sad it is only 5.  I am so sorry to those I haven’t chosed I wanted to do a variety of blogs and I also can only pick 5.  I hope you aren’t sad and I will try to help with feature posts or whatever you want to help you build your blog.  Happy blogging and I hope you all check out all of these FABULOUS blogs!

Transforming your Tired Skin

27 Mar

I did a previous post on how working out can help your skin be better Click HERE but I was reading another article from a blog about what foods can help your skin change.  How the things we eat really affect how are skin is.  You can help your skin look more youthful, glowing, healthy, clear based off of some of the things you eat.  I know I have heard that berries of course of antioxidants so when you eat them you have more of it in your body, but sweet potatoes also have vitamin A and C that I have talked about earlier that can help your skin look better.  Also Salmon and specific nuts also help give you healthy fatty acids they are like carriers helping carry healthy nutrients to your skin cell membranes.  Healthy oils bring natural moisture to your skin Click Here  So interesting I know eating helps your body, losing weight, feeling better, and having more energy.  But didn’t know why exactly helps your skin.  Definitely their blog article!
