Beauty Lately: The Primer & Setting Collection

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I have been in denial about the necessity of owning a primer for so long (thanks to my oily skin), finally I’ve accepted my fate and I decided to add it to my beauty ‘must haves‘. Take it from me, my face is just terrible around 2:00pm any day I wear makeup without primer. I have also tried MOM and even the Nivea After Shave ‘primer hacks’, which have their limitations (for another post)(more…)

Beauty Lately: BH Day & Night 60 Color Eyeshadow Pallete

2017-05-01 22.09.22

Finding the perfect eyeshadow palette has been a major challenge in my beauty department. Usually, I don’t go for palettes with two, three or four colors. I like the type that comes with at least 10 colors that I can work with. However, I have noticed that, some of these ones that come in 2 – 3 colors are usually the good ones. (more…)

Nude + White Cut Crease on Burgundy Lips

I’m so excited to share my first look after such a loooong time.

7 Steps to A Perfect (DIY) Tissue Nail Wrap

Hi friends…being that the previous post on using tissue as a substitute for acrylics powder attracted lots of views, I thought it might interest you also to know the steps to using tissue to wrap your nails.

I’ve had mine on now for about 2 weeks and counting.

Without wasting your time, I’d go right into todays details:
1.  Start out by cutting out 10 pieces of tissue. Ensure you use the very soft and smooth ones.

  1. After your normal fixing and proper filing and buffing of your nails…you know…the usual process of nail fixing, then, apply glue/adhesive on a nail.
  1. Carefully place a piece of tissue on the nail and apply a layer of glue to reinforce its firmness. Do this for all your nails to allow them dry out.
  1. Starting from the first one, begin to file…file…file! File until they are all smooth. Don’t forget to remove the excesses by the cuticles and beneath the nails.
  1. use the buffer to smoothen them out.

  2. Apply a generous layer of glue on each nail and let them dry out again.

  3. Buff again.
