Winter Makeup Update!!

Hi Dolls,


So whenever the season chances is also that time again when we need to boost up our makeup routine. By now we're all pretty much looking washed-out, faces are pale, lips get chapped, and our favorite products that worked so well for the past couple of months just don't do the trick right now. 


Luckily, I'm here to help!! I'm giving you 5 secrets to keep you looking hot when the weather is cool.




1. Fix Your Foundation
By this time of year, any remnant of summer color is gone, so your skin is lighter. Also, daylight is dimmer, so skin seems duller. To counteract the problem, choose a base at least one shade lighter than you'd wear in other seasons. And opt for a hydrating formula that contains moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin or sodium hyaluronate because skin tends to be drier, too.


To try:
Revlon Bare It All Lustrous Lotion ($15)



2. Disguise Dark Circles
Winter colds can exacerbate puffiness and undereye shadows. And as we grow older, the skin around our eyes becomes thinner, making these problems more noticeable. To fix, after putting on foundation, dab on a yellow-base-cover-up one shade lighter than your base. Apply as close to the lash line as possible, blending from the outside edge of the eye socket to the side of your nose (which helps hide the tinge cast by your eyes).


To Try:
L'Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Concealer ($8)



Perk Up Pale Cheeks
To brighten a winter washed-out face, bring back your bronzer. The reddish brown tones help counteract the ruddiness brought on by colder air. However, don't go more than two shades darker than your skin tone or you'll look muddy. Using a large blush brush, tap areas of your face that naturally pick up color from the sun; your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. For a greater glow, add a touch of pink blush to the tops of your cheekbones.

To Try:
e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder ($3)



Winterize Your Eyes
Fierce, frigid winds, not to mention the common cold, can cause your eyes to tear, resulting in runny shadow and mascara. For staying power, prime lids with face powder to absorb any excess oil, which can cause makeup to smudge. And be sure to use long-lasting formulas that are designed to work all day without creasing or fading.

To Try:
Gosh Waterproof Eye Shadow ($12)




Polish Your Pucker
Because your lips lack oil glands, they dry out easily. Add in abuse from bad weather, and your skin begins to flake, making lipstick look blotchy. For luscious lips, first remove dead skin by applying a lip balm and gently exfoliating with a damp washcloth. Then use cream lipsticks; they're moister than matte formulas. And steer clear of ultradark shades, which age you because they absorb rather than reflect light.

To Try:
Maybelline New York Superstay Lipcolor ($9)



Hope you get to update your winter makeup routine and with these tips you girls will be looking fresh and bright all season long! :)

Kisses,
Marina

Introducing "My Dress Affair"



How many of you have gorgeous dresses that had only being worn once or twice but cost you a fortune?

You can have special rental rates for other dresses, earn money, be invited to their events with complimentary treats, get free shipping and get them dry cleaned whenever they are rented out.


Think of it as an upscale concierge experience that is much more personal then selling your dress on ebay. The best part - you don't loose your dress.


Here are some of the dresses they currently have to be rented so go ahead and take a peek and why not have yourself an affair @ My Dress Affair.




Meet "ISABELLA"
"Sensual and Revealing"

13 Baking-Soda Beauty Tips!

So if you been following me for a while now you know how much I LOVE beauty home remedies and it shouldn't come as a surprised that one of my ultimate favorite and very inexpensive product I used a lot is without a doubt "Baking Soda"

Ok now my "beauty routine" has always been pretty minimal, and baking soda has played a big part of it. How can my favorite multi-purpose (beauty) enhance your grooming routines? Read on and find out how I implemented Baking Soda in my personal beauty routine.




HAIR

Remove buildup. (Click Here) to see my post on how-to

Dry shampoo. No time for a shampoo? Baking soda can be used as a dry shampoo when your hair is oily. Sprinkle some on your hair, comb through then quickly fluff your hair with a blow dryer.

Chlorine-damaged tresses. Mix 1/2 teaspoon on baking soda with 1 pint warm water.


SKIN

Facial Exfoliant. In the palm of your hand, mix some baking soda with your facial cleanser to make a gentle exfoliant. Use circular motions to apply gently then rinse as usual for very soft skin.

Rough skin. This also works for the rough skin on elbows and feet. Make a thick paste with baking soda and water (about 3 parts baking soda to one part water) and scrub away.

Shaving. A solution of 1 tablespoon baking soda in a cup of water works as a pre-shave product of aftershave rinse for men with sensitive skin.


MOUTH

Tooth polish and whitener. (CLICK HERE) to see my post on how to get whiter smile using baking soda

Toothbrush. Soak your tooth brush in a mixture of water and baking soda and let it soak overnight.


NAILS

Soft cuticles. Scrubbing your nails or toenails with a nailbrush (or old toothbrush) dipped in baking soda will soften and gently exfoliate cuticles.




So go on and get your baking soda and try to implemented in your beauty routine. "TRUST ME" you won't regret it.


Till next time and don't forget to....
