If you have thin eyebrow like mine...
If you have thin eyebrow like mine...
Today I'd like to share share some tips for making over your eyebrows if you have thin/sparse eyebrow Here are tools you may find useful: 1. Eyebrow Brush for applying powder and combing through hairs. 2. Eyebrow pencils for correcting the shape of your brows and then filling them in. 3. Eyebrow serum for growth. For thinner eyebrows, follow these guidelines for filling in with a pencil. If you prefer to use an eyebrow brush and powder, the same guidelines apply. Step 1: Using a pencil that is about one shade lighter than your natural eyebrow color, gently fill in the head of your eyebrow. Use light, short strokes to mimic your natural eyebrow hairs. Step 2: Moving past the head, begin gently filling in the body of your eyebrow. This part is typically the most dense, so focus on just filling in sparse areas with pencil so you don't overdraw. Step 3: Fill in the tail of your eyebrows and extend out past the outermost corner of your eye (to tail spot you found while mapping out your eyebrows). Step 4: Use a spoolie brush to brush through both eyebrows. This will blend in the pencil with your hairs to everything look uniform and natural. Tips: If your eyebrows are thin or sparse like mine, you can apply a daily eyebrow serum to help them grow.

Affordable&Amazing! This is a Game Changer for Oily Skin!!!
Affordable&Amazing! This is a Game Changer for Oily Skin!!!
I have oily and acne-prone skin, which means I’m always dealing with clogged and enlarged pores, especially in the forehead nose (the T-zone😖). When pores are clogged, it can result in blackheads, acne and dull skin. My skin is also a little sensitive so my idea of the perfect exfoliator is one that can eliminate all that trapped dirt and debris without being harsh on the skin. My sister who studied in Japan recommended suisai - Beauty Clear Powder . I was a bit sceptical at first as it's packaged into tiny capsules which I've never tried before and the fine powder granules didn’t seem very scrub-like at all.  However, my impression on the texture changed once I added water, as it lathered into a rich, bouncy foam almost immediately. I just used my finger to lather it up into foam like this, but some skincare tools like foaming mesh can do a better job. After just one use, I did feel that my face was squeaky clean, but not in a drying kind of way. And that my PM routine of toner and moisturiser didn’t feel as heavy. The MOST amazing thing is that the products effectively removed my blackheads!!! I just cleaned my nose with the bouncy foam to soften the blackheads, then use the needle remover to gently remove them. Don't forget to apply some aloe vera gel after that. I'm really amazed at the result! The product contains two different enzymes and amino acid cleansing ingredients that will exfoliate your skin by removing keratin plugs, residue in pores and reducing roughness. The smaller exfoliants that are designed to lift away dead skin cells on the surface before they get trapped in your pores. It's SUPER convenient for weekend trip as I don't have to worry about squeezing out too much product or about spillage in my luggage. I bought it for $24 (32 capsules per pack) and I think its worth it! I'll DEF repurchased it!

I had never heard of HERBATINT - Permanent Hair Color til I needed to dye her hair and suddenly were forced to look for a natural solution that worked. I had never used any natural hair dye brands before, and I'm not an expert in applying permanent color to the hair either. On my visit to a herbalist we found Herbatint amongst other natural dyes and after much deliberation we decided to purchase it. The first thing that I liked was the price (really competitive). Second, it was the only natural hair dye (as far as I know) which gave permanent results. Basically price and permanence ticked the boxes for us. Also, anyone who wants to cover grey hair with natural ingredients and also wishes to benefit from organic herbal extracts, should gve it a go. When opening the box at home we LOVED the gloves! Not as thin as the gloves you get with other products! They were also easier to put on. There was plenty of product for 2 applications, which makes Herbatint an attractive option. The shampoo and conditioner were lovely! Plenty of it for the first application anyway, and really, really nice. These things might not look important, but they are. These are the touches that make a good product great. Even though Herbatint didn't come with the brush and mixing container (which you can buy separately) I quite liked the idea about it saving on plastic waste. Final Thoughts: PROS All natural, with 8 organic herbal extractsEasy to follow instructionsPrice is very competitiveGood range of colors to choose fromSmell is lovely, product didn't stingGloves are fantastic (the best we've ever had)No fading, no dryness (3 weeks in) CONS Probably not that easy of a product to find (herbalists and specialized places)Brush and container not included - it wasn't a problem for us because we like the idea of recycling but others might prefer to have it all in one

Say Goodbye to Hair Dye: How to Get Rid of Gray Hair Naturally
Say Goodbye to Hair Dye: How to Get Rid of Gray Hair Naturally
Once you reach a certain age, your follicles start producing less melanin, the pigment that gives your hair its natural color. As a result, your hair starts turning white, gray, or silver. While this process usually doesn’t begin before the age of 35, however, many people notice the first signs of graying in their early twenties because of genetics or some health conditions. Unfortunately, I am one of them suffering from prematuring grey. I'd like to share some experience with someone has the same hair concern. While searching for ways how to get rid of gray hair and restore natural hair color,  we are worried about the damage caused to hair. The good news is, you may be able to restore your hair’s original color through supplementation, but only in the early stages of graying. To try and reverse the graying of the hair, you should increase your intake of foods that are rich in the following five nutrients - folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, iron and copper. Except for the food supplementation, you can also combine a nutrient-rich diet with one of the following home remedies for graying hair. COCONUT OIL AND CURRY LEAVES (Pic 2) Simply mix a cup of unrefined coconut oil with a 1/4 cup of curry leaves and heat until you see black residue forming. Let it cool, apply to your scalp, and leave it in for an hour. Repeat twice a week. Please Note:  Before you decide to change your diet or start using the remedy, make sure that you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients they contain. If necessary, consult with your doctor first. Do you have any tips on turing grey hair black, please let me know!

Look At This If U Have Fine Hair Like Me👇👇👇
Hi friends. I looked at my photo album today and found a great hairstyle. I got this haircut a long time ago. It was fashion and cool. All my friends love it!  I have fine hair so short hairstyle can add some volume.  It takes some time in the morning to style it, but all you need is a nice hairbrush. You can do some research and choose the brushes you like!  If you want your hair to look shiny or smooth, I recommend buing a hair mask. Hair masks work super well. And they are quite affordable.

Must-Have Products From Aesop!💖💖
Must-Have Products From Aesop!💖💖
I have combination, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I want to share some Aesop products that I've used recently and found useful. First is the renowned Aesop - Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Toner. I normally use half a dropper of it and rub it between my palms before pressing it onto my face. It has a light plant scent, and a slightly thick but runny enough consistency. It leaves my skin with a radiant glow but a little sticky as well, which, fortunately, vanishes after a while. I read online that some suggested not following it up with a facial cream, but I think it either way is fine. Facial cream can be easily absorbed, but without it, your skin won't feel dry either. I will consider repurchasing this product since it's a reasonable price. Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel It has a thick honey-like texture and you'll need to emulsify it by gently rubbing it between your palms until it's warm before applying it. Wait a few seconds for it to be absorbed. It really leaves me with smoother skin and reduces my acne. In conclusion, it doesn't offer the best user experience, but it does offer great results. Aesop Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque This is an acne-fighting clay mask which offers great results. It's herbal scented, has a soft and smooth texture, and it reduced my acne significantly in just a short time, so I will repurchase it. Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Toner I wanted to buy the Aesop B & Tea Balancing Toner, but when the beauty advisor saw the acne on my face, she recommended me the In Two Minds Facial Toner instead which is suitable for oily, acne-prone skin. It has a light yellow-brown texture and its main ingredients are witch hazel, nicotinamide, and chamomile flower. My T-zone gets oily easily in summer and I find it does a good job at controlling the skin's water-oil balance. Aesop - Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser It gently resurfaces your skin with lactic acid, so it's quite useful for my acne-prone skin. It lathers wells and doesn't leave the skin feeling tight. Aesop - Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm It has a fragrant citrus smell and it's doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. It's absorbed easily and leaves a matte finish.

sustainable skincare + how to be better
sustainable skincare + how to be better
Sustainable skincare is something we should all strive to be better at. We should be focusing on the brands that are doing it right + supporting them, not uplifting the brands with mostly non-recyclable packaging (looking at you, Drunk Elephant) I think clean beauty is a scam, a sham, and useless. “Clean” is so subjective, and so many people say that “clean” = “natural” because “chemicals” are bad. To that I say... no. Everything is a chemical. Water is a chemical. Have I been hurt or damaged to products that are “clean at Sephora?” Yes. Have products that are “clean at Sephora” broken me out, caused irritation and allergic reactions? Also yes! My skin type is normal/combination, acne prone, and I also have rosacea. “Clean” beauty isn’t important to me - but “sustainable” beauty is! I look for products that are packaged in glass, and I love jars because I can reuse them to hold Knick-knacks, rings, earrings, paper clips, dice, etc! I can peel them label off, wash them in some oil + baking soda, and there’s no more sticky left. Then they’re perfect for whatever I need! Youth to the People and Farmacy really do hit the nail on the head with glass packaging. I love the aesthetic of both of the companies, so I love reusing the glass jars and pumps for things! June & Co have recently made a facial oil that is like, Neverending! It’s supposed to be no/low waste - I think it’s called their Forever Bottle? Unsolicited Skincare Advice makes a glow mist in a spray bottle, but if you have your own bottle, you can mail it to them and they’ll fill it up instead of using one of theirs! On that topic, sometimes I’ll fill up spray bottles with toner and use it that way. Kitsch has recently launched no-bottle shampoo and conditioner: they’re just little round blocks that soap up and then you can use them in the shower. It saves SO MUCH packaging that will probably never be reused by you, and can only be partially recycled. These are very floral smelling and I love how they feel. They give me a good clean, similar to the bottled shampoo I was using before. I also love using re-usable toner pads that my friend hand made for me! It helps me cut down on the amount of cotton waste I produce with 2+ rounds a day.YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask

“Kesha here, and I am officially an unboxer." That's how Kesha's latest YouTube video starts. Not only being as a famous singer, Ke$ha now started her journey officially as a YouTuber. The singer is a newly minted beauty vlogger, and she's embracing all the traditional aspects of the medium, including "getting ready with me" videos, and, now, unboxing. As she writes in the caption, “Who knew I was so multitalented!!! I can open boxes!!!!" From her unboxing video, she introduced a product that really surprised me -- Butt Mask!!! I never thought of applying a mask to my butt. She said that she is always obsessed with masks. So she started to think about her butt. She wants to give love to her butt too, her butt deserves love, so she tried the Butt Mask from Bawdy and called herself "Butt Mask Lady" lol.  ❤️Bawdy Butt Mask❤️ From Ke$ha's vlog, she introduced 3 different products from Bawdy which are all for butt care. 👍CBD Butt Blam - Restoring + Relaxing CBD Butt Stick $40 BAWDY - Butt Stick Duo This product is a moisturizing butt stick.

5 STEPS TO GLOWY SKIN (WITHOUT MAKEUP)✨
5 STEPS TO GLOWY SKIN (WITHOUT MAKEUP)✨
As the colder seasons approach, my skin tends to become dull and dry. During these months, I like to boost the hydration so I can still have glowy skin all year long. The radiant glow can be achieved WITHOUT makeup. All you need to do is follow these steps to enhance your natural glow ✨ Here are my 5 steps I take when I notice my skin becoming a little dull: 1. STAY HYDRATED- Drinking the correct amount of water for your body is important to eliminate toxins that buildup in the body. Staying hydrated is important as your skin is made up of so much water. I like to start my day with a glass of warm water and lemon before I eat food then continue to drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated. (Lemons help flush out toxins as they absorb them in the body) 2. EXFOLIATE- Dead skin cells can leave your complexion looking a little dull. To help reveal new skin, it is important to efoliate (but don’t overdue it, about 1-2x a week should be sufficient). I chose to use a facial razor to exfoliate. Without getting into too much detail: I steam my face to open up the pores and so my razor has something to glide with. I then point my razor at a 45 degree angle. (I can make a separate video on this if needed). There are so many forms of facial exfoliation so it’s best to find what works best for you. The razor I used is similar to this one: the CRÈME shop - Foldable Brow & Hair Razors 3. GLOWING/HYDRATING FACE MASK- there are so many masks out there that target glowing skin. I chose to make a DIY face mask to customize it directly to my skin needs. The mask consists of tumeric and honey. Tumeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to brightens the skin revealing a natural glow. Honey is great for moisturizing the skin. I chose this mask because it is great for acne-prone skin. I mixed the ingredients together an applied for 10-15 minutes. 4. MASSAGE THE FACE- I like to massage my face so it can help regulate my blood circulation for an instant glow. I use my VITAMASQUES - Rose Quartz Roller so my hands are not touching my face. Along with my roller, I use TRULY - Mary Jane CBD Glow Serum . This product “delivers powerful antioxidants to firm and brighten while replenishing essential hydration“. I also love this product because it has a shimmery sparkle which enhances my natural glow. 5. MOISTURIZE- You cannot expect any of the steps to work if you are not locking in the hydration you just added to the skin. Moisturizer creates this barrier between your skin and the outside world to help maintain its moisture. I like to use OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer because it is packed with vitamin-C. Vitamin-C is essential to keeping healthy collagen levels on your skin. It is also antioxidant-packed which helps further protect your skin from toxins. What’s some of your favorite tips for keeping glowy skin all year long? 🎶: dream a little dream of me by Ella Fitzgerald (Sandor remix) #CheriePartner

💓Sunday Riley Just Revealed💓Not much product for $48, BUT...
Sunday Riley has just released a new product: SUNDAY RILEY - Pink Drink Firming Resurfacing Essence I am not a Sunday Riley stan, but I have to say I just love the name! It sounds very beautiful and tasty like drinks! And it looks pretty!  💖Price:$48.00/50ml 💖What's it:  it appears to be a hydrating, barrier-repairing, and also gently exfoliating “essence,” in a 50ml mist bottle. 💖How to use it:  As a first step in your treatment routine, apply to dry skin, after cleansing. Can be misted directly on the face or sprayed into the palm of the hand and patted onto skin. Can be used morning and night, before serums, oils, and moisturizer. 💖Highlighted Ingredients: The ingredients list for Pink Drink looks pretty amazing: Some nice peptides are awfully high on the list! -Peptides help firm the skin by signaling your cells to produce collagen, peptides help your skin become more firm. So are pretty much all the ceramides and lipids a skincare nerd could want. -Ceramides are lipids that help form the skin's barrier and help skin retain moisture. Ceramides also help the skin protect against environmental aggressors like irritants, and pollution. So much ECGC! -EGCG is a type of plant compound called catechin. The catechins like EGCG plays a role in protecting your cells from damage and preventing disease. Cool ferments! Fruit extracts!Kelp and chlorella extracts! 💖Ingredient Callouts: It's Cruelty-Free, Sulfate-Free, Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Phthalate-Free, Fragrance-Free. So, Sunday Riley Pink Drink appears to be a hydrating, barrier-repairing, and also gently exfoliating “essence,” in a 50ml mist bottle. That’s not much product for the price, but it does appear to be very “nutrient-dense,” perhaps a bit more comparable to a serum than a toner. What are your thoughts?💕

💰Worth or Not? I tried the same products and my answer is...
As a huge fan of Selena Gomez and a huge fan of Skincare.  I'm so excited that she finally launched her own beauty brand --Rare Beauty. In the video featured on Vogue's YouTube channel, Gomez shares her everyday routine. This is why I love her, she is not only introducing her own brand product but also sharing the products she actually used from other brands that she loved. As a skincare obsessor, I got the 2 products she mentioned with her skincare routine that I can not wait to share with you guys. ❤️Selena Gomez's Skin Type She has dry skin, but in certain areas she is oily, also around her T-zone, she has some acne breakouts. My skin type is exactly the same as hers. Combination skin with oily T-zone and dry on the other area. Also acnes in T-zone and on my chin. ❤️Products Used & Tips:: TATCHA: TATCHA - The Dewy Skin CreamThe Dewy Skin Cream 👍 She mentioned the texture is thick and yummy. So when she uses it, it doesn't have to use that much of it. And it can give you a nice hydrating effect. Drunk Elephant Sunscreen:DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Umbra™ Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30👍  She applies this daily cause she has lupus which made her need to be careful when she stay under the sun. ❤️My Review: Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream: First of all, the packaging is gorgeous! I love the little cute spoon on the top of the package, but to be honest it is not that useful lol. As well as the cream, the light purple color is very beautiful. I purchased it because I want this to be a part of my skincare routine day and night. However, the texture is too rich for my skin that I can only use it as a nighttime cream. A little amount of use could give my skin perfect hydration and when I wake up on the second day, my skin looks like a skinned boiled egg that is smooth, glowy and I can feel the elasticity. Since I'm a combination skin type, for the daytime, I feel heavy on the skin. Dry skin will definitely love it. I used LaMer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer Cream before and I don't really like that due to the super-rich texture. I feel this Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream (Price for $68) can be LaMer's (Price for $190) DUPE! Even Better!  Drunk Elephant Sunscreen SPF 30: Sunscreen is always an indispensable part of my routine. The Iron oxides ingredient in tinted sunscreens provides some protection against blue light and really attract me to buy it. I use it every day after I purchased it and I really love it. This product is a sheer physical sunscreen that gives powerful protection from the UVA/UVB damage and the radiations and oxidative damage. The texture is extremely lightweight that it is wonderful to apply it before makeup foundations. I feel it melt into my skin and is virtually invisible. I always prefer physical sunscreen better than chemical sunscreen. The word chemical sounds scary to me. This one contained no chemicals or silicones that will not cause acne which I highly recommend. ❤️Hope you guys like this❤️
