Try This!

This is a tip that I heard a while ago yet I don't see many people do it when I watch beauty videos on Youtube.

We all know the heartache of mascara transferring to our eyelids and potentially ruining the eyeshadow work. Bonus tip: if this happens to you wait until the mascara dries then remove the product with a qtip. This usually happens when we're working with a particularly wet formula like the ones from L'Oreal. So what do we do to prevent that? Apply mascara to our lower lashes first.

Many moons ago, the international trainer at a M.A.C In Mode class I attended made reference to the "mascara face". He said: "stick your booty out, tilt your head back, open your mouth and make that mascara face". 😂 Whether that was just for dramatic effect I dunno but I do know that the combination of applying mascara to my lower lashes first plus slightly tilting my head back while applying to my upper lashes has greatly decreased my mascara mishaps.

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
