Beauty Question: how do you apply your makeup, with a brush, sponge or with your fingers?

Time for me to answer another beauty question! I haven’t done one of these in a while! Today’s topic is makeup application. When it comes to applying your foundation, there’s 3 ways to do it: you can use your fingers, a sponge or use makeup brushes. I prefer using makeup brushes to apply my makeup. Yes, brushes are more expensive than using your fingers and sponges are cheaper than brushes, but I still prefer brushes. Here’s why! ​​ ☻ I do NOT like touching my face with my fingers. Even though I always wash my hands before applying makeup, I...

Tip: Evian Facial Spray makes an awesome makeup setting spray!

​​ As you know I’m a big fan of makeup setting sprays. Every time I apply a full face of makeup, I set my face with a setting spray. You can read more on how setting sprays work and how I use them in this post I wrote a while back. Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot of people using a water spray to set their makeup. I have used a water spray before (to refresh my face on a hot day), but I had never tried it as part of my makeup routine before this. So I’ve actually been...

5 ways to organize your beauty clutter in 2015

Today’s post is NOT about how to store your beauty products. No, I’m not showing you my makeup collection, I’m not showing you which Ikea drawers I think are the best or which acrylic drawers I recommend. This is about how to get rid of the clutter and save money by figuring out which beauty products you actually use and which are just taking up space. In the 5 years I’ve been in the US (yes, it’s been that long…crazy!), I have accumulated a lot of beauty stuff, both makeup and skin care. I have drawers, baskets and cabinets filled...

Makeup mistakes I’ve made along the years…

As a beauty blogger I’ve noticed that people (friends/family who follow my blog) are more ‘aware’ of my makeup and tend to comment about it or ask me questions: what I’m wearing, how I applied it etc. I don’t mind answering of course! I love giving advice and sharing tips and tricks (LOVE!), but I am not a professional makeup artist. Sometimes I feel pressured to always have flawless skin and makeup when I’m amongst people who I know read my blog. I’m far from being great at applying makeup. Even though I write about beauty, I still make mistakes...

6 clever makeup tips for when you’re sick and still need to leave the house!

If you celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you had a lovely time! I sure did, even though I wasn’t feeling all that great. Our toddler has a bad cold for almost a week now and the other day I woke up feeling like crap too… Stuff nose, sore throat, itchy eyes etc. On Thanksgiving what I really wanted to do was to stay in my bed and have my husband make me chicken soup. Unfortunately I couldn’t do that: a) it was Thanksgiving b) my son had a cold too that was much worse than mine. c) it was Thanksgiving. ​​...

Why drinking lots of water doesn’t make you prettier

It’s Monday! Hope everybody had a good weekend! Question: did you drink enough water this weekend? I bet you heard that drinking lots of water will hydrate skin from the inside out, giving you a ‘radiant complexion’. I’m here to tell you that this myth is false! Drinking excessive quantities of water (more than the 8 glasses generally recommended) will only lead to lots of bathroom visits, not radiant and gorgeous skin. Of course there are many good reasons to drink water: it’s refreshing, it helps your brain function, maintains energy levels, regulates body temperature, aids in digestion etc. Basically,...

Slept in your makeup last night? 4 things you should do NOW

Hi everyone! What do you do in the morning after you’ve fallen asleep with all your makeup on by accident? Below are 4 tips. 1. The first thing you need to do is to tell yourself to NEVER do it again. Never, ever ever! Sleeping in your makeup can result in unnecessary exposure to the free radicals in the environment, which the makeup holds on to. They cause the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on the skin. To put it in simple terms: sleeping with your makeup can give your wrinkles in the long run! I...

Beauty Question: which products do you recommend for acne?

Time for me to answer another beauty question! Today’s topic is a question I get asked a lot when people hear about my skin issues. If you’re new to my blog: I’ve been suffering from mild acne for years. Luckily, I have in ‘under control’ now, but my skin is still very sensitive and acne-prone. Because I often get asked which products I recommend to treat acne, I have made a list. This list isn’t in a particular order; these are products that have worked for me in the past or that I’m currently using. Of course, there’s no guarantee...

Beauty Q&A: Which products are really worth the hype?

It’s Friday! Even as a stay-at-home mom (for now), I always get super excited when it’s Friday! It was my favorite day of the week when I was working at an office and it still is! The weekend is when we do ‘family fun stuff’, so it’s something I look forward to. Anywho, I have a beauty related question for you. Are you ready? Here it comes: 😀 Question: Which products are really worth the hype? My answer: I would say MAC lipsticks. Lipsticks by MAC Cosmetics are super popular. Whenever there’s a new collection out, most people always check...

Beauty Q&A: What’s something everybody has, but you?

Hey there people! It’s Friday! Woohoo! 🙂 I promise I’ll post a ‘life update’ soon (I’ve recently moved to Vegas, in case you haven’t been following my blog). It will most likely be up this weekend. For now, I have a burning question! Question: What’s something everybody has, but you? My answer: I would say OCC Lip Tars. I feel like every legitimate lip junkie, like myself, has at least 3 or 4 in their collection. I have none. These are highly opaque lipsticks that come in a little tube and a brush. They are by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and...

Q&A: Is there a beauty product you thought you’d NEVER buy, but you ended up buying it anyway?

Hope you had a great weekend! It’s time for another Q&A. Don’t forget to leave you answers in the comments! 🙂 Question: Is there a beauty product you thought you would NEVER buy, but you ended up buying it anyway? Answer: To be honest, I have way too many lipsticks and I always tell myself I don’t need any more! My obsessions are MAC lipsticks, lipsticks by Maybelline and Revlon and lipsticks that are ‘dupes’ for more expensive, but popular shades. I’ve recently thrown out a bunch of old lipsticks, because they were smelling funky. Some of them I had...

Q&A: What beauty product do you have that you wish looked better on you?

I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately. I’ve been thinking about doing a makeup stash blog post (showing you my collection, my holy grails, my recent purchases, my fails etc.), but everything is in boxes right now because we’re moving in two weeks (more about the move soon!). Once we’re fully settled into our new home and I’ve unpacked all my stuff, I’ll definitely follow up on this. For now I thought it would be fun to do start a new series, a Q&A! 🙂 Every day for the next week I will answer a beauty related question. Today’s question...
