BEST LASH HACK EVER: never need falsies again!
Nope, it's not a stunningly effective eyelash serum AND it most definitely is not some new lash lengthening service either— this advice is all about instant gratification😍🙌🏻 And did I mention that I’m almost positive you ALL already own the ONLY tool you’ll need to get eyelashes so long they’ll graze your eyebrows 😯😉! Step 1: Grab your FAV mascara - mine is ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara I find the formula super smooth, and the applicator is perfection *chefs kiss* for that one I tell ya! Step 2: Now grab that MIRROR! Now, if you hold your mirror down low and put the mascara on while looking downward, you will get the most coverage from the base of the lashes to the tips! (But still continue to apply mascara to the front of the lashes also) Honestly, I never truly knew how long my lashes were until I tried this AMAZINGLY SIMPLE trick...cause I like to keep my makeupsssss as simple as can be 😆 Not to mention, this is going to save us all a ton of coin!!No more falsies, or special spa treatments necessary 😁; just whip out your handy dandy mascara and show the world just how LONG and WHISPY those lashes are, my Cherie Babes! 😘 #beautyhacks

ACNE, DULL, DRY or PREMATURE skin? Find out why!
🔶 Okay, so we’ve all heard or read about pH balanced products and products that rebuild the acid mantle...but I think a lot of us don’t know why it is SO important to keep the pH level of your skin BALANCED and your acid mantle UNCOMPROMISED! ❌ Generally, skin that isn't behaving can be traced to pH problems. Skin issues like eczema, redness, dry patches, acne, oiliness, psoriasis, and premature signs of aging all indicate that your skin's pH is off-balance! This is how IMPORTANT this topic truly is 😳 🔸 So, WHY is the pH balance important to skin? Any great deviation—either too high of a pH or too low—throws off the “ecosystem” of skin and causes inflammation and irritation when the natural oils and natural bacteria on the skin are disrupted. (Aka: your acid mantle has now been compromised due to this) ⭐️ If you are suffering from any of the above issues, perhaps you need to take a step back and really look into the routine you have in place currently, for morning and night. ⭐️The pH of your cleansers are very important because something that is high pH, 9 and above, can be too drying and stripping for your skin. And your cleanser is your first step of your skincare routine. So you don’t want to start it off by using a cleanser with a pH level lower or higher than ***4.0-5.5*** When your acid mantle and skin barrier are compromised, it can lead to BAD bacteria, which causes ACNE and dehydration, which ultimately leads to WRINKLES!😱🛑 🔸Tiffany Masterson, the owner and creator of Drunk Elephant is an absolute master when it comes to knowing how to Properly care for your skin. “The acid mantle just so happens to protect skin from environmental factors that lead to aging and all-around irritation,” she says. So, she made sure that ALL of their products are pH balanced to perfection 🙌🏻 - if you’re having bad acne I REALLY suggest taking a “Clean Break” - and switching your routine to a short yet VERY effective routine using Drunk Elephant products. All of their products from head to toe are pH balanced so I promise you can’t go wrong with their products! ✅ But now that this topic has become so popular in the beauty world, there are TONS of other amazing brands that have created pH balanced products to help aid with these skin issues as well. But if you ask me, I think Tiffany started the trend 😉🐘💕✨ 🔸Here are some other REALLY GREAT pH Focused Products from other brands: ▪️Tula’s Pro-Glycolic 10 percent pH resurfacing gel ▪️La Roche-Posay made a device called “My Skin Track”: a prototype of a wearable sensor that detects trace amounts of sweat from your pores and promises an accurate skin pH reading in just 15 minutes. ▪️Brands like Cosrx and Acwell are K-Beauty brands thus they tend to make most of their products with a low pH level that is gentle on the skin and won’t cause any extra irritation. So if you’re having any of the above issues, check your products pH levels😊 - hope this helps some of you! 💋
My Secret Weapon to my “no-makeup” Look😍
I have to say I am BLOWN away by the performance of Glow Recipe’s new GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops 🤩❤️ It’s made to be worn underneath your makeup to give you that extra glow, but I’m telling you - FIRST time I tried it, once the serum settled in, I had this PERFECT glow! ✨ It was matte in all the right ways, and highlighted everything I wanted it too. I added some mascara and a nice pinky nude lippie, and I feel like it looked better than when I apply foundation and all that jazz as well. 😉 So this product has quickly become a staple in my beauty routine (which admittedly has always been small, but I have never been able to keep it this small) until Glow Recipes Niacinimide Dew Drops. 💖 It is also Hydrating so I’m able to skip my moisturizer. This is my favourite HYBRID skincare/beauty product by far ⭐️! And is definitely one of my favourite products of 2020; 💋 #bestproductsof2020

This is my SUNDAY ROUTINE to pamper myself in the Winter ⛄️💙! List of products I use in order: 🌟 HERBIVORE - Coconut Milk Bath Soak this makes my skin feel so soft and the bath has the extra luxurious feeling 🥰 🌟HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial this is such a gentle yet potent exfoliant. However I don’t recommend using it more than once a week, otherwise you could end up over drying your skin and damaging your skins moisturize barrier! 🌟 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is my favourite daily cleanser bc it’s gentle, clearing and balances your skins pH level. 🌟 HOLI FROG - Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash I don’t always double cleanse but when I do, Kissimmee is my absolute favourite!

It is sooo refreshing, soaks deep into the skin and makes my skin feel very soft💜 BUT I have to use only 3-4 sprays and I have to make sure I’ve put on a moisturizer of some sort on my face BEFORE using my sweet biome. It is not a toner, but does revitalize the skin! 🌟COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid blackheads are the BANE of my Existence 🤦♀️ nothing seemed to help, nose strips are BS (in my humble opinion😇) but this BHA power liquid has been the ONLY product to ever help diminish them consistently. I don’t think you can ever get rid of them all, but this does a damn good job!! And last but certainly NOT least and prob the two most important 😂 🌟 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Sweet Pitti Deodorant Cream this creamy and soothing deodorant wraps you in a comforting cherry almond scent 🍒! 🌟 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm SUPER ADORABLE💛, smooth and deeply hydrating for long lasting moisturized lips.

WHY does FARMACY use HONEY 🍯 SO OFTEN!???
I had always wondered why what we put on our toast or in our tea 🫖, could have so many benefits for the skin. My curiosity was peaked when I noticed Farmacy Beauty uses HONEY in almost ALL of their products? So must be some real “queen bee” 🐝 Shiz right!? So here’s what I discovered with some simple research: 💛 Honey is one of nature's most revered skin remedies. Thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic abilities, it may benefit oily and acne-prone skin. Honey is also a natural humectant, so it helps keep the skin moist but not oily. This is because humectants draw moisture from the skin without replacing it. (Because being moisturized and hydrated are two DIFFERENT things😉) 🌟 So, Raw honey is packed with components beneficial for your skin, especially if you have acne or autoimmune skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Even Candida overgrowth may be controlled by applying honey to your skin. 🌟 Raw honey helps balance the bacteria on your skin, which makes it a great product to use for acne. 🌟 Honey speeds up your skin cells’ healing processes. If you have blemishes or an eczema outbreak, honey that’s unpasteurized could speed healing and reduce inflammation. 🌟 Raw honey is also a natural exfoliator, which means applying it to your face takes off dry, dull skin and reveals new skin cells underneath. 😁🍯🐝 I mean who knew Such a Common Household product, is such a MAJOR skincare Powerhouse! Oh yeah, best honey to use is Manuka Honey 🍯 😉✨ So yeah when I read all of that, it was like CLICK! Farmacy Beauty is genius - ACNE ISSUES here’s the mask for you babes!!

The 1 product that erased ALL my wrinkles
🔆I’ve posted my pictures from when I started using this miracle product to today’s improvement🔆 So I’ve written about my wrinkles a couple times on my page. But each time I list all the products I use and credit them working together as the solution to my vanishing wrinkles which includes a very deep furrow wrinkle. Let’s talk about that furrow wrinkle. I was in my early 20’s when I developed this wrinkle and it’s gotten deeper as I age. I hit my late 20’s and went to a Botox clinic to talk to a ‘doctor’ about the wrinkle. I was told by a ‘cosmetic doctor’ that a strict schedule of Botox and maybe some filler would fix the wrinkle. I went home and thought about what he said. Needless to say I never went in for the Botox. But it wasn’t until 3 years later that I actually took steps towards getting rid of my wrinkles. I turned 30 and thought I have to take action now. So I did a lot of research on skincare products, I listened to dermatologists and estheticians and sometimes they contradicted themselves but I was able to after maybe 6 months have a list of products needed and companies I’d buy from. If you’ve ever gone to my page you can even see the evolution I’ve gone through since I’ve started. Which is why I like posting updated skincare routines every couple months. But there’s always 1 product I never drop and use everyday and I’m confident it’s this wonder product that’s to be credited for the amazing results I’ve had erasing my fine lines and wrinkles and that is what you have all come here to find out. ✅✅Truskin Retinoid 2.5% with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid I notice a lot of companies only use 1% Retinoid in their products and I believe the highest over the counter can be 3%. It also has vitamin E now if you don’t know the benefits of Vit E let me quickly teach you - it is a powerful antioxidant that is effective at reducing UV damage in the skin it can limit the production of cancer causing cells, and it protects and nourishes your skin from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E can also help with acne and psoriasis. There is also hyaluronic acid in this serum which is known for hydration giving the skin a plump and hydrated appearance, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles where it binds to water to help retain moisture. 🔆so now you have my secret product that I contribute to the fading of my fine lines and even my deep wrinkles🔆 👉🏻Available through the United States Amazon Website/App
CBD in all your nooks & crannies 🌵
Body care is something I tend to forget about a lot. I’m too concerned about what I put on my face I forget about what to put on my body. Leef Organics makes that really easy with their Nooks + Crannies CBD soap. They claim it soothes the skin, relieves irritation, has antioxidants protection, hydrates, and rebalances. I have eczema prone skin on my body so I have to be really careful what I use or else I get bad flare ups. This has been a really nice addition to my shower as it really does hydrate the skin while cleansing. I have the scent Cactus & Agave which has a really pleasant natural floral scent. It’s not like your typical floral scents in body products but it smells almost like you’ve walked into a green house. I really like it! I think the coolest part to it is the packaging is completely recyclable! They say all you have to do is plant the packaging, water it, and it grows tomatoes! I’m all about sustainable packaging where you can get it. 💚 /*PR Sample

DIY PLASTIC SURGERY✨
I love using makeup to enhance my natural features. There are so many tricks you can use to create illusions such as a slimmer nose and higher cheekbones. With this look, I used several makeup techniques to make it look as if I have altered my face with cosmetic procedures. Tips & Tricks: Slimmer nose: If I could have rhinoplasty I would, but for now I stick to contour & highlighting. First choose a cool undertone bronzer with no shimmer. I like to use the MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect . Use a small blending brush to work the product down the sides of the bridge of the nose. I also like to contour under and above the tip of my nose. Lastly I apply highlighter down the center of my nose and the on the tip. ( I have a video post on how I do this) Larger lips: I always over line my lips to create the appearance of fuller lips. This can work with any shade liner but I usually opt for shades that are slightly darker than my natural lip color. My favorite liners are MAC - MAC Lip Pencil and NYX - Slim Lip Pencil . Overline the centers of both the upper and bottom lip. Do not overline the outter corners of the lips because it will look fake and overdone. Lastly, apply a little bit of gloss in the center of the lips to create a fuller appearance. Slimmer face: For a slimmer face, I use contour on the temples of my forehead, underneath my cheekbones, and to chisel the jawline. Applying highlighter can make the cheekbones appear higher. Also blush can have a similar affect as it highlights the apples of the cheeks. (I posted a video on how I contour my face previously) Lifted eyes: Lastly, to accentuate the eyes to appear as if they are lifted, I like to apply brown shadows to create a subtle wing. I continue with these shades in the inner corner of my eye to elongate the eye’s shape. Using false cat eyelashes also helps to create this appearance of “foxy” eyes. To really make it appear as if the eyes are lifted, I recommend wearing your hair either all the way up or half up so it pulls on the eyes to create a more snatched eye look.
