Don't always say you can't cover dark circles, maybe you just miss the right tool
Don't always say you can't cover dark circles, maybe you just miss the right tool
I have dark circles under my eyes, but recently I found an amazing product that can perfectly cover them. I can't wait to share it with you!   I used to apply concealer with my fingers, but I found that the effect was not obvious. After that, I read the online tutorial and bought a sponge to apply concealer. I didn't know whether the sponges I chose was wrong or what, the concealer could not be evenly applied. A few days ago, I used a friend's eye concealer brush and I knew what the problem was. It turned out that I had been using the wrong tool. I should choose concealer brush!!! Now let's talk about the specific steps of covering dark circles. 1. Use orange concealer to neutralize skin color first, or use a matte lipstick you have. 2. Dip the concealer brush in concealer and apply a small amount of it on your dark circles, and repeat the steps until they are totally convered. Remeber that you should choose creamy concealer, or you can't use the brush. 3. Use setting prowder with this concealer brush. Don't say your concealer is not good anymore! Just buy an eye concealer brush!

Secrets to Make Your Curls Last Longer👩‍🦱👩‍🦱👩‍🦱
Secrets to Make Your Curls Last Longer👩‍🦱👩‍🦱👩‍🦱
Everyone loves those beautiful, flawless, bouncy curls. But do you know what's even better? Beautiful, flawless, curly hair that lasts for severall day.  I have a long bob and i think straight hair is a little lifeless foe me. So I did find some tips and tricks on how to make my curl last days!  1. Start in the shower The perfect curl starts from the very beginning—the shower. Skip the conditioner when washing your hair, as this can sometimes make the hair too soft and slippery, leading to curls falling out faster. The key to curls that last longer is to have enough grit and texture to the hair to hold those curls in place. 2. Don’t wash your hair right before curling it Although we all love the feeling of fresh, clean hair, curls tend to hold better in dirtier hair. If you’re in between washes and are worried about your hair looking oily, try using some dry shampoo at the roots, to help soak up any extra oil.   3. Prep your hair Before beginning to curl your hair, apply a thickening mousse to your hair. Since hair mousse contains alcohol it will remove some of the moisture from your hair, which further enhances the hair's grit and hold.  4. Use the right hair products You can use heat protectant on your hair before heat styling to avoid damage. Depending on what works with your hair, apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair. Or, spray a bit of hairspray before, during and after curling. This will give your hair a rougher texture which will help prolong the lifespan of your curls. Don't hold the hairspray too close to your hair as this will make your curls crunchy and heavy.  5. Cool Them Down One of the most effective tricks on how to get your curls to stay is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go.  6. Leave The Curls Tight Once your curls have cooled down, unclip them, then toss your head back and gently shake the curls out. Rake your fingers through your hair to gently break up the curls, but be sure to leave the curls a little tighter than you actually want them.  Do you have any such smart tricks to make curls last longer and better?

Face creams for different seasons, and my choice is...🤫
Face creams for different seasons, and my choice is...🤫
I have combination-oily skin which has long been troubled by acne and bumps. So, how should people with oily, acne-prone skin choose their facial cream? In fact, the most essential skincare product is facial cream! Not toners, serums or anything else. Greasy skin is caused by dehydration of the epidermal basal layer, so moisturizing and hydrating are the foundation of shine control. I'm going to share with you two amazing facial creams below. For fall and winter use: LA MER - LA MER The Moisturizing Soft Cream This is the most expensive facial cream I've ever bought and I have to say, it offers a great restorative effect, quickly reducing skin redness whenever my skin flushes due to allergies or other unknown reasons. Although it's expensive, it's actually very durable. Those with combination-oily skin usually have sensitive cheeks, so I recommend using this cream in winter to prevent blood vessel dilation. For spring and summer use:fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer This is a facial cream that I've been repurchasing all the while and it has a light rose scent which I love! It has a really magical texture as it doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy at all even when I use it in summer! It's easily absorbed by the skin and it's very moisturizing. It's also really affordable and I realized I emptied two jars of it last year. I've been recommending it to many of my friends as well. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘

My New Routine With Aesop And Lancome! Is It Effective?🤔🤔
My New Routine With Aesop And Lancome! Is It Effective?🤔🤔
I wash my face with only water in the morning, omitting the facial cleanser. I have combo skin. 1) Aesop - B & Tea Balancing Toner It has a light yellow, slightly sticky texture and a pleasant tea scent. It's refreshing, easily absorbed, and it doesn't leave you with sticky skin. However, I found its effects to be just average, so I won't repurchase this product. I will finish this bottle though. 2) LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum It contains alcohol and has a strong smell of alcohol as well, but it's easily absorbed and refreshing. When I use it during my morning skincare routine, it doesn't leave me with sticky skin and none of my follow-up skincare products ball up. My enlarged pores improved after a few bottles, so I will continue to repurchase it. 3) LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Eye Cream This is my first bottle and I've already finished half of it. It's more moisturizing compared with ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery. It's also absorbed quickly around the eyes, so there's absolutely no need to worry about milia! I will continue using it although it doesn't really improve my dark circles. 4)Aesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream It has a pleasant citrus scent and a moisturizing texture that doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. It doesn't need to be emulsified before it's applied but I like to gently rub it between my warm palms before pressing it onto my skin for better absorption. It comes in such a big bottle, so I might not repurchase it because I'd like to try some new facial creams. Since we're talking about Aesop, I'd also like to talk about Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel. It's more expensive and it claims to minimize enlarged pores. It has a thick, gel-like texture and is sticky when applied, but after using it, I really woke up with minimized pores. However, it's really too sticky, so I don't use it a lot and didn't manage to finish it in the 9 months after opening it, and now it has expired. Therefore, I will definitely not repurchase it.

All of them were useless and almost ruined my skin...😥😥😥
All of them were useless and almost ruined my skin...😥😥😥
I have tried several face masks and found the worst! These three masks didn't work and one of them almost ruined my skin😭Hope my review can help you guys! Givenchy Face Mask I first bought it for its stunning packaging, but I really regret buying it since I started using it. As I have sensitive skin, its accompanying brush really irritates my skin, so I replaced it with La Mer's brush. I've used it by following the instructions, but I didn't see any difference. I thought it might be because it was my first time using it that the results were not apparent yet. But it still did nothing for me after I applied it on thick once and thin once, so I will not repurchase it. Erno Laszlo Seaweed Lift & Firming Mask I love their Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Mask, so I bought this seaweed mask too. But I never expected this seaweed mask to be as troublesome to use as the firming mask yet offer less than one tenth of the effect. In short, it didn't do much for me and actually caused a rash. Thankfully it's not some serious allergy. patchology - FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels patchology - FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels Although we can't expect eye gels to really improve any problems of the skin around the eyes, I still wish they'd offer some instant effect when they're is peeled off. I was disappointed. These two eye masks have a texture similar to the affordable Korean eye mask I bought before. In short, I'm just disappointed. Let me know if you had a similar experience with them. Do you love or hate them?

Omorovicza vs. Caudalie, I'll Say bye👋to...
Omorovicza vs. Caudalie, I'll Say bye👋to...
Recently I bought two popular mists, both of which are also refreshing and moisturizing primers. I'm going to review them. Omorovicza - Queen of Hungary Mist100ml I usually spray it on my face after cleansing and before applying moisturizer, then I'll gently pat it until it's fully absorbed. It can also be used as a moisturizing spray a few hours after makeup application for makeup setting and to moisturize skin. It can be used all year round, but it's more recommended for dry or normal skin. It'd be perfect if it also kept my skin shine-free in summer. If you want to wear makeup, you'd need to use it with other oil-control skincare products, but if you're using it only for moisturizing, this is a mist you can repurchase all year round. CAUDALIE - CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir100ml For oily or combination-oily skin, spraying this mist before applying makeup and follow-up skin care in summer really helps to keep the skin shine-free for up to 5 hours, which is also why I don't recommend it for dry or normal skin. However, I dislike its smell and the spray head is a little faulty as I'm reaching the end of it. To sum up, I prefer Omorovicza and will definitely repurchase it. If you have different opinions, it may be the reason of different skin types.  If you have any suggestions or questions please hmu😝
