abra here! just a teen tryna clear my skin... woot woot! welcome to the beauty gang!
my latest diy mani! groovy yellow 🐯
If you guys can’t already tell, I’m obsessed with yellow. Here’s how I did this lovely mani! 1. pick your fake nails and lay out the sizes. i always do the sizes first so that glueing them on goes faster. 2. wipe down your nails with an alcohol wipe. this removes natural oil from your nails so that the glue really sticks. 3. pop on your nails! 4. i used two coats of light yellow (the color was a bit sheer so i need two coats). 5. use a toothpick to create the swirl design with a darker yellow. 6. finish with a shiny or matte top coat. That’s all! With a bit of practice, you can do it too!!
this sample is *everything*!!
My dad gave me a sample of this Living proof. - Restore Repair Hair Mask and I instantly fell in love. The texture is super creamy but still light and spreadable. It smells amazing too, but slightly clay-y. It applied easily to my hair and was ready to wash off in only five minutes. I only got to use it a few times, since it’s just a sample, but I noticed more shine and less frizz in my hair. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a bigger size! This might be the biggest size since it was all I could find on this app, but I don’t know 🤷♀️ Would recommend to anyone who needs a lil pep in their step in terms of hair!

sephora collection: good mask for the price
I wasn’t expecting this mask to be incredible considering that it was really cheap, but I actually kind of like it. It’s not as good as its more expensive counterparts, and it’s marketed as a peeling mask while it’s just a normal gel, but aside from that, I liked it. Again, I’m a sucker for grapefruit, which caught my eye. The little beads feel really nice on my skin but I recently found out they’re bad for the environment in large quantities, so if you buy it, try to just stick to one small bottle to keep the beads small. The texture is really nice and not sticky at all, and it feels nice and cool on my skin. It didn’t really solidify that much, but I didn’t mind the texture so that was fine. It only took three minutes to work, according to the bottle, so this is perfect for a quick pick-me-up. After one use, I did see that my skin was smoother and my pores smaller. It actually made my skin look and feel So if you’re looking for a cheap, super-fast mask that will get to work right away, this one is for you!

decent primer spray by the cutest brand
I was trying to find a good-enough priming spray for after skincare but before makeup. This face mist claimed to prep skin and moisturize before makeup. Of course, I had to buy it because how cute is Pixi? Anyway, the mist feels very refreshing when I’m actually able to aim it onto my face. However, I’m not blown away by its abilities to really do anything in terms of priming. It does make my skin look a lot glowy-er (glowier? that’s not a word is it), but the whole priming-prepping business is just eh. I do feel like my makeup went on a little bitty bit smoother, but it looked generally the same. It did do wonders for hydration and glow, so if you’re looking for something like that, I would recommend! Now you can live up to your full pixi fairy potential.

MIRACLE in a bottle right here!!
If you say you don’t want longer, fuller lashes for SUPER CHEAP, you’re probably lying. This right here is the only home remedy that matters: castor oil in an empty mascara tube. Buy a huge bottle of castor oil and some tubes like this one on amazon for probably 20 bucks (and all of that will last you a lifetime). Just put this miracle oil on your lashes every night. My natural lashes are longer than I could have ever dreamed of achieving with mascara. It’s actually insane. Please do this and your lashes will thank me later!!
