Hold Up! I Microbladed !

Hi Guys ! 

I know I have been sharing on the Facebook page that I was going to post all my footage from my microblading experience for you guys. I decided to wait till after my follow up appointment, because I want to be sure to provide all the necessary information. Healing time , what I went through emotionally and what the followup appointment fixed , if I had any thing I needed correcting.  I’m going to post a few pictures so that you can get a slight idea. Everything is going great so far , I’m almost at a month mark, and I’m loving my results so far. 

Here’s a pic of my eyebrows right after 

Here is a pic of my eyebrows right now. 


Amazing right ?! I can’t believe it neither. I wake up and shake my locs , put on lip glosss and a little eyeliner and bam , I’m finished.  I have to say it’s worth the price , and honestly everything else. I won’t go into much detail , because I want to save all that for later , but make sure you research , research this before doing it. Always do your research !  If you have any questions or want to share your microblading experience , I’m listening. Share ! 

Be Fab!

Activated Charcoal = White Teeth

img_6657

I’m sure that you have heard the craze about the newest beauty secret for a great smile, and you had questions about it. Activated Charcoal has been out for years, and people have been using it to whiten their teeth, and to lighten up scars . I decided to try it myself on my teeth to see how great the results would actually be. In the picture above it shows the brand that I bought with my own funds to test the product out. Make sure that you are using activated charcoal, not charcoal you use on the grill. This charcoal an be consumed , and the other cannot. YOU WILL GET VERY SICK from using the wrong one.

Items Needed 

Charcoal

Tooth Brush (Preferably a dark bristled one because using white will look yucky)

A small cup ( To dump the charcoal and pour water in to make a paste)

Tooth Paste

Mouth Wash ( optional )

Directions

Unscrew 1 or 2 vegetable capsules and empty the charcoal into the small cup

Put only a small amount of water into the cup, enough to make a paste

Brush your teeth with the charcoal paste, and tongue

After you are finished brushing , with the charcoal still on teeth brush your teeth with your regular tooth paste

Be sure to brush your tongue as well.

Gargle with mouth wash once you’re finished

Here are the pictures of the charcoal on my teeth , and once I brushed them and used mouth wash. You will see results immediately , and will want to do this every day . This is my results after doing this two days in a row. The charcoal basically is a stain remover , and will pull all stains from your teeth. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, you will want to try this, because coffee does stain your teeth. I will be following back up with you all at the end of my bottle of charcoal so you can see how much of a whiting I got. If you decide to try this, let me know your results.

Stay FAB!

Contour That Face Honey 

ladies and gents! I have not forgotten about you, that’s why I decided to share my updated makeup routine with you. I only tend to do this look when I’m going out , but since I’ve began getting very busy with work and family I had to update my products. First let me begin to say I have very oily skin. Now u know when you have oily skin your foundation will run off your face faster than a sinner running away from church. Lol. (that was a funny 😜). 

Primer- I still use the same thing for a primer I stated to you guys in a previous post , Milk of Magnesia. It will ensure that your face stay Matte. 

Foundation – Maybelline New York Dream Mousse. Praises! Praises! I have had this foundation on all day and it is still in tact. Honestly it’s been 7 hours , and my face isn’t shiny at all. I am so so happy , because if you have oily skin you can go from looking on fleek , to looking a hot mess. 

Concealer – Mac

Blush – Maybelline 

Eyes– NYX Primer & Milk Eye Shadow Pencil. Shadow over the milk eyeshadow is Urban Decay. 

Contouring was done with my Mac (dark concealer ) and LA Girl for highlighting in Fawn. 

Hope this helped all my oily women and or men. These products used together really stopped me from looking like a bathed in grease. I will stick to these products and let you know updates in two weeks. 

                                       Love

Maybelline Nail Strips- Are They Worth It?

This is a review on the Maybelline Nail Strips that I purchased with my own money. I have been fascinated with doing my nails a lot lately, and have been purchasing nail polishes, and tools out the behind. I had been noticing that everyone was giving these nail strips a try, and for the most part they said they liked them. Me being me was like I’m going to buy me a pack and test them myself, before I tell all my readers about them.

Here’s the ones I purchased at Walmart for about $5.99Maybelline Nail StripsContents

18 Nail Strips

1 Emery Board

1 Plastic Stick (to make sure the sticker goes on smooth)

 

Pros

Fast design for when you’re heading out, and need your nails done quick

A lot of different designs to choose from

Great for a person who can’t paint their nails worth a lick 🙂

Great for someone who constantly want to change up their nails without buying a ton of nail polishes

 

Cons

The price

18 strips! Not even enough for two applications!

Instructions not as great as they could be

DO NOT LAST LONG FOR NOTHING!

 

Bottom Line

I will not be spending my hard-earned money on these strips again. In my book for as much as they charge for these things I should had got 20 strips, not 18. The other thing that upset me is that they don’t say not to apply to nails if you have on a base coat. If you do be prepared for your strips to not lay correct, and they will start to peel up almost immediately. I’m lucky that I noticed this when I did my first nail, and was apprehensive on taking my base coat off. Sucking my teeth I went ahead and applied them to my now naked nails. The sizes they give you do not match with the correct finger you would think it would, so be prepared to match up strips by turning them upside down to actually cover a whole nail. Once I got that together I was happy with my results.

Maybelline Nail Strips 2

 

These strips lasted a total of three days before the paint on the strips started coming off, then they started peeling around the edges. Hmm. I’m a mom so I have to do odd jobs around the house, and deal with two hyper toddlers, did they not think that perhaps more moms would be buying these fast manicure fixes? Um No! Couldn’t had. I’m sure placing my hand in water is what helped with the peeling also, but who doesn’t put their hand in water almost everyday? No, this product did not make it onto my summer must haves list. Maybe you all should give it a try and tell me how they worked for you, I’d love to hear.

Garnier BB Cream ” One Of My Summer Must For Oily Skin”

Thanks to BzzAgent I was invited to take part in this Campaign! I did not pay anything for this product, and I’m just reviewing it. This is my own opinion of the product.

First let me say that I have oily skin. Yes, Yes! I have told you guys plenty of times that I have a problem with this. My makeups have to be for the oily skin individual, and I keep to the same face regimen or I’d be in a messed up situation. Don’t laugh, I’m like so serious. Now I have been using this BB cream from Garnier in medium/deep not deep. Since I’m chocolate most people assumed I would always choose deep. Um, no no. Why? I had this tiny inkling feeling that the coloring might be off for me only because I had saw some videos on Youtube. I prayed and prayed I was right, and Viola! I was!  Here’s a quick tip if you happen to pick a cream too light. All you have to do is add a dime size of your regular foundation to it and you should be okay.

The Texture– It is smooth, and silky. Trust me when I say a tad bit goes a long way. I think you’d be able to wear this one container for like six months if you do it right. I know I have another container that I’ve had almost six months now, and it’s still a lot in there.

Price– Remember I got this tube for free, but I did go and do some research and it’s running between $10-$12. I don’t know how some of your pockets are, but I was like ookkkayy. Hmm.

Pros- The oily skin one is the truth! Listen, when I tell you I went the whole day oil free, I went the whole day oil free. I did put on me a  mineral powder at the end, but that’s something we should all do anyway to set the makeup.

A small amount is all that’s needed, it spreads very well for the whole face. I would say a quarter size is more than enough, but that was just for me. You all know how you like your makeup so it’s really up to you.

It didn’t stain my fingers when some got on them if any. I was able to rinse what little got on me with no problem.

Cons- The price really isn’t that cheap if you’re a student or someone on a budget. I know for myself I’m subscribed to numerous boxes and have to be careful not to send my hubby into a hissy fit.  Looking in your local newspaper or magazines for coupons, I always see them for Garnier everywhere.

I rate this product a 9

It would be perfect for summer when you want to be out in the sun, or walk around downtown. Great product!

Plastic Surgery With Makeup

Lol! I’m laughing at this blog title because it’s so true. Makeup can do some amazing things, you just got to know how to use it. As of today I’m in my second trimester 18 weeks +4 days. My girl friend was like honey your nose has spread. Now anyone that knows me , know I hate my nose already. Seriously. Anywhoo, today I decided to contour my face. Well I be! I love it. Like seriously. 1 point for mommy, 0 baby. In the war of the spreading nose I won. I used Revlon Photoready foundation Maybelline fit me concealer, and my contour  foundation brush.Make sure you pick the correct tones or you won’t get the right look when applying. Also, be sure to highlight areas you want to stand out, that’s the trick. Love ♥
