favorite no-makeup makeup
I have been loving these products for an every day look. during this weird time, I’ve fluctuated between wanting to wear full glam and not showering for days at a time. not my best look, lol. I’ve decided just a few key products have been monumental in my morale: e.l.f. - Ultra Precise Brow Pencil this is amazing. super thin, sturdy packaging (looking at you brow wiz), and $5!! I’ll repurchase this forever. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer I can’t give this 5 stars. I heard only good things about this, but once I got it? it’s so finnicky! to get the coverage I wanted, I had to apply a lot, and it ended up making me look a little too dewy. additionally, it creases no matter what. I tried using this a million different ways but decided it’s just not my fave. the most effective method for me is just a little bit on my finger, but rubbing it in instead of patting. I can’t ask for too much from this little guy, but it does brighten my under eyes a teeny bit and adds a radiance that’s helps me look more awake! MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara interestingly enough, I’m gonna make another reference to glossier for this mascara lol. this does what I wanted their lash slick to do for me. I have extremely straight lashes so their mascara didn’t work for me. dropped + flaked off, but this one maintains my curl all day. it’s natural, almost too natural. I only wear it when I’m going for a super light makeup look.
BEGINNER: DIY HAIR TRIM✂️✨
I love trimming my hair once a month for the benefits such as hair growth and split-end removal. I’ve noticed these trims allow me to wear my straight hair naturally which allows for less time being spent on it in the morning. The tools used to give myself an at-home trim include: ￼hair scissors ￼wide-tooth comb Choosing these 2 tools allows for little to no damage during the process. To start: ￼on damp to dry hair, I part my combed out hair how I normally style it. ￼next, I gather one side of the hair and alternate between twisting and combing out the segment of hair. ￼then, I take the scissors and trim away at the split ends sticking out of the twist.repeat on the other side, and you will have a trim that leaves you with soft, knot-free hair. Disclaimer: I am not a professional hairstyle, this is just works for me. Also, I have only tried this on straight hair and not sure how it works on other hair types.
how to look like a model!✨
hello everyone! today i watched a video on youtube by anncy twinkle in which she gave some tips on how to make your makeup look like famous models! it was really funny but also gave some great tips, so heres the link: https://youtu.be/0YcjXlZ9MCE the tips are hard to explain all of them, but i will give you guys a few pointers here if you dont want to watch the video😊 basically, in order to get a foxy, elongated eye, its best to use a credit card and place it a little under your brow to help keep your shadow looking sharp and elongated, not round (only if your going for a cat eye). make sure to highlight the brow bone and the inner corner, and create a fake shadow right wear you can feel the bottom of your eyeball to help make your eyes look bigger. make sure to extend this shadow to elongate your eyes, and use a colour just barely darker than your skin to keep it natural✨ you can see kendall wearing eye makeup like this in the first picture of her. i am using a super shock shadow from colourpop called lady bird on the inner corner and as a hight, and on my lid im wearing a shadow from the sailor moon palette. the brown colour in my crease is from this night owl palette COLOURPOP - Night Owl Pressed Powder Palette i dont wear fake lashes, but anncy does, and she said that she cuts up one lash in half, and then places the two pieces on the outer corner of her eye to get a more elongated look. you can see it in the second photo of kendall. i am using this mascara: L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara smile when you apply bronzer and try to carve out a nice round shape that many models have (look at bellas cheeks!) i actually use an eyeshadow as bronzer from this palette: Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan keep your brows make straight and long to help elongate your eyes as well! i am using my fav brow product: ALMAY - Brow Styler™ Brow Mascara try for a lighter coverage foundation- my go to light coverage foundation is COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer ✨✨ hope this helps! lemme know if you try this look!

Natural Lash Care
D'Lashes - Lash Wash Cleanser Being a eyelash expert, and dealing with seeing all types of lashes on a daily basis. I’m always left with explaining and informing my clients to always clean their eyelash extensions daily and before coming in to see me for their touchups. Some listen and some don’t! So I formulated an easy, non toxic and hydrated lash wash to help clients and people keep their natural lashes and extensions clean. This lash cleaning wash has a touch of aloe for a soothing formula. Not to mention that it doesn’t sting while washing your lashes. So it’s ok to get it in your eye. This helps with picking up extra residue left behind from eyelash makeup and mucus that gets coauthor in between your lashes. This cleansing wash will help dissolve all the impurities leaving you feeling refreshed and clean. This compared to others eye washes. I wanted something that clients love and feel refreshed without all the harsh chemicals.

DIY FRENCH NAILS HACK
I love the look of French tipped nails put achieving the look is hard for me to freestyle. Many years ago I saw a tip in a magazine on how anyone can achieve this look at home. All you need to create the design is reinforcement stickers that will make the outline for the design. HOW TO: ￼I start off by placing the stickers on all of my nails where I want the design to be. (Some nails may require more then one sticker.) ￼Next, I apply two coats of L.A. Girl - Color Pop Nail Polish to the tips of the nails. Let dry, then pull off the sticker carefully to reveal the design. ￼Next, I use Sally Hansen - Nail Rehab as the base color polish and apply avoiding the white tip area. ￼Lastly, I apply a layer of gel top coat and cure under a UV light. That’s it, your nails are complete! I love this look because it is a classic and compliments everyones skin tone.

My 3 Minute Hair Hack for Lazy Days
This is my favourite hair style hack to do when I’m having a really, really lazy day but need to make my hair look presentable. The best thing about it is that it looks great on clean and dirty hair (even without dry shampoo). It looks like you spent a LOT more time on your hair than you really did! I sped up the video, but in real time it literally took me three minutes. 3 minutes! This is my ULTIMATE easy hair hack for lazy girls—the slick, low bun. All you need is a detangling comb, a natural bristle brush, and at least two hair ties. That’s it—no extra styling products needed! You’ll especially like this hack if you have the same hair as me—thick and straight. Step One First things first, comb out your hair so you don’t have any knots in it. Getting all those bedhead knots out is the first step to any good hair hack, so don’t skip it. Step Two Then part your hair carefully down the middle. I prefer a middle part, but you can do side parts with this style too. Wherever you decide to put your part, make sure that it’s perfectly done—no wobbly parts here! Step Three After combing to make sure everything is kind of in place, this is where you need to bring in your natural bristle brush. This kind of brush makes styling look perfect, no matter how clean (or in need of a wash your hair is). Use it to slick down and perfect your hair before tying in a secure, low ponytail. Step Four Taking the pony tail and more hair ties, loop it around and tie into a bun. It’s ok if some bits stick out—you can adjust them and tuck them into your hair tie. And voila, your super quick, but fancy low-bun look is done.
