Hey, I know.. I know that I’ve been gone, but I’ve been working so much lately. I even worked this sunday because of Easter, can you believe it? So I don’t have any free time not even to do my nails as often as I like to do them, hahaha! But I came here today to share with you something that I learned and it has been helping me a lot lately! Here in Brazil is really hot (I live in a city near Rio de Janeiro) and makeup is something that melts in 2 hours. Especially me, I have combination/oily skin and here is really humid. In USA I don’t have problems with oily skin, it actually gets really dry hahaha. But here is something awful. So I have to always keep an eye open for the tips and secrets to make the products last more than a couple of hours on my face! And I’ve found something very interesting to keep the concealer on for a long time! Let’s try it? You’ll need:

  • Your LIQUID concealer
  • Facial/Eye moisturizer
  • Primer (eyeshadow primer can be used as well!)

Did you get all these things? Promise? Let’s keep going then!

  1. Wash your face like you usually do, with your cleanser, tonic, astringent, etc.
  2. Apply your eye cream on your under eye area.
  3. Wait for your skin to absorb it, then re-apply the eye cream.
  4. Repeat the process.. Wait for it to dry and apply more eye cream.
  5. Apply a tiny little bit of primer under your eyes.
  6. Then apply your liquid concealer.
  7. IF you want, you can apply a little little little bit of powder, but it isn’t necessary!

What’s the big key? If you over hydrate your under eye area, it’ll be so smooth that your skin will not get dry and crease your concealer, especially because you applied the primer! And why do you need to use liquid and not cream or mousse concealer? Well, the liquid concealers usually dry really fast and don’t crease. Cream concealers are made to cover imperfections around the face, but once applied on the eyes, it tends to crease and show the little expression lines quickly. I tried those steps and my concealer lasted for longer than it usually do. And I live in a place where the makeup melts in two hours hahahahaha! I hope you will find this tip easy and awesome!

 

That’s it, guys! I’ll talk to you soon, I promise! Bye

How to Stretch shoes: easy and FREE!

Ah, shopaholic people will know the feeling of seeing shoes that don’t fit  you but they are soooo pretty that you MUST have them. Then what happens? You never wear the shoes size 7  and you think that someday they will magically stretch and fit your size 9 feet. Haha. Yes, I’m a size 9, don’t judge. Anyways, I’m here to save you again!

I won’t guarantee that you will stretch 3, 2, or 1 size of your shoes. But if they are a little bit small, like hurting you when you walk or smashing your toes, maybe this will help to make you wear them comfortably. If you mess up with the shoes, it is NOT my fault. I am not telling you what to do.

You will need:

  • Your small shoes
  • Socks (if you want the shoes to stretch a lot, choose thick socks!)
  • Plastic bag (like from grocery stores)
  • Freezer (I am pretty sure you have a fridge in your home…)

Steps:

  1. Put your shoes in the plastic bag, or wrap them in a plastic film, just to keep them away from the rest of the things in the fridge. Leave it in the freezer for a day at least.
  2. The next day, choose the socks you think are the best to stretch as much as you want, and wear them.
  3. Take the shoes out of the freezer and the plastic bag and wear them right away.
  4. Walk around the house wearing the shoes.

If you want them to stretch a lot, I am not sure if it will work, but maybe you can wear two pair of thick socks. I used this trick with shoes I had and it worked! I hope it works for you as well 🙂

This was the quick tip I had for you guys today! I hope you like it! Time to go!! I’ll talk to you guys soon, bye!

The best lip scrub: you have it at home!

Hello, hello! Time to save money and stay beautiful! So come on and let’s get started!

Do you know when you apply that perfect lipstick and all you can see is that you have chapped unattractive lips? Especially if the lipstick is matte finish, aghhhh! So horrible when it happens. Well, I know how it is, girl. But I’m here to save you again! You don’t need to buy several different lip scrubs, you don’t need to make any homemade masks and scrubs using sugar and honey (even though they are awesome and delicous haha). All you need is something you have in your bathroom, and you use it everyday, twice or more times a day. Can you imagine that the solution is so close to you that you don’t even realize? Yes, folks.. But enough with the mystery and let me teach you the secret.

Isn’t it awesome and easy? I’ll talk to you guys soon, bye!

How to dry your nail polish in seconds!

Hello, hello! Time to save money and stay beautiful! So come on and let’s get started!

We live in a world where time is money and we don’t have any (haha). And we are always trying to find ways to make things easier, right? I’m here to save you. Or maybe, um.. Your nails!

Some women don’t have time to wait for the nail polish to dry, especially if they do their nails at night and are tired after a long day and all they want is to lay down and sleep, waking up the next day with the nails all messed up. Oh, that bitter moment when we see that our nails are horrible, after a long time doing them or after all that money invested in mani/pedicure! But, we won’t cry anymore, because it can mess our make up! Let’s do something easy, quick and the most important: FOR FREE! 

You will need:

  • Cold water

Yeah, that’s it. But make sure the water is really cold. You can add some ice cubes to make it really cold, and them remove the ice cubes so they won’t be in the way. Ok, now that we have the water, this is what you will do:

After you did your nails and you feel like there’s no better nails in the world but yours, wait some 5 minutes and add cold water to a bowl big enough to fit one or both of your hands. Add water until you can cover your finger when placing your hands in the bowl. Now, just make sure your nails are covered with cold water and let them sit until you can handle the coldness. Yes, if the water is really cold I know it can hurt, so all you need to do is repeat the process, if you can handle 5, 10, 40 seconds, it’s up to you, as long as you let your nails in the cold water for at least 3 minutes total. Some people say it does not work, but for me it does, and I don’t have any problems with it! 🙂
