DIY: Pretty Polish Remover Bottle

21 Feb

The thought of applying nail polish remover to my nails make me cringe every time. For one the smell is unbearable, two my husband gets on my case because of all the harsh chemicals, and three it doesn’t come in the prettiest bottles. The scented ones are somewhat better to handle, but I thought by putting in a prettier bottle it might excite me more to use this beauty essential.

I used Martha Stewart Crafts from Michaels: all-purpose gel adhesive and iridescent glitter in cotton-candy.

Note: I made sure to add a label to prevent any accidents.

Until next time,

Let’s Talk Make-Up: Purple Eyes

30 Oct

As the seasons change we tend to change with it, whether it be the color of our nails, clothes, or make-up, which is why I fell in love with this universal stila pallet. I love the convenience of going from day to night in no time. I decided to go with purple eyes because it can be subtle on the eyes, bright, and goes well with a nude shade for the lips.

Hope you give purple a try.

As always, Carolina xoxo

Let’s Talk Make-Up

12 Jul

Hi friends!

I’m back in action! I’m fully recovered from this past weekend and ready for the up coming one!

I’m not much of an eyeshadow person, just give me a slap of color and I’m off but the other day I had the urge to go out and bring my makeup to date.  I was looking around my makeup and no bueno! I had makeup since about 1995!! That’s when I knew there was something wrong with me. I went from a few department stores to Sephora came home with a few items take a peek.

After 10 years I finally realized I need to stick with pallets, they make things easy. I mean how can anyone go wrong with a professionally hand picked pallet of sophisticated colors!!?? Well, if your anything like me, it’s possible. But! In my defense I started playing around with the color and soon I fell in LOVE. So you think I have too much time on my hands ehh? Perhaps, but what if I told you I watch about one hour of T.V a week.

These brushes were meant for me. Their engraved with concealer, blending brush etc., I told you these were meant for me, I can never go wrong with these!!

I’m one of those girls who says, I’ll wash me brushes later. I know, I know that’s not too healthy on the skin, and coming from someone with my skin it’s not a good habit. But we’ll talk about my skin on another post too much to talk about here.

The best concealer, talk about coverage. I have black circles under my eyes, but this stuff makes wonders, use a concealer brush instead of your ring finger you will see a dramatic difference. I swear by this lip balm !!!!!!!!!!!!! What I love best is it doesn’t get sticky and it keeps your lips moisten and plump, trust me you will not be disappointed. finally Nars highlight. This goes on top of your cheek bones and on your nose, I only use this when I’m going out for the evening. It gives you a soft glow, trust me, you will become addicted to it.

If your anything like me, you need coverage. I have a lot of acne scars and this seems to do the trick. I only wear this during my night outs with the honey. During the day it’s all about mascara, some powder and a bright lip and I’m on my way.

What do you think of my first smoky eye? Not too shabby!

Hope I gave you some helpful tips.

As always, Carolina xoxo
