Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer I got. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product and wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.

So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer because for a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve been sticking to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup and not make my face look or feel dry, because the becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked and it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try because I needed a primer and I had no second choice to try to be honest lol.

The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer, this product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things i love about the product is it has aloe water in it and it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin, pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day and have glowy looking skin. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product, and a little goes a long way with this product which i love because i honestly rather buy products that can last me awhile. After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended in well with the primer. The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up I didn’t have mt foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types and how my make up may look hours later yours may look different so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it only gets oily there but hopefully this product helps with that issue.

If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7 just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it and wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s weekend went well? Last Wednesday I put out a blog post on how I organise my blog posts and I decided to now do an update post on all the apps i basically use for blogging and what I use them for. From since the last post I have used different and new apps that really help me a lot and this can maybe help you out so lets get right on into it!

Plann

So the first app we will be looking into is plann, this app is made to help plan and organise your Instagram postings before uploading them to your Instagram. This app is a huge life saver for me and I pretty much use it all the time, it helps me plan out and upload everything I want to it so I can plan out a whole week of Instagram uploads to post. This app also helps me keep my Instagram colour scheme I want and not post something that doesn’t go with my colours I have going already.

Canva

Next is canva, almost every blogger probably knows canva. This app is like one of the top must haves for a blogger, this app is for designing. I use this app for designing all my blog covers and Instagram story graphics etc. This app pretty much goes hand and hand with Pinterest because this is what everyone is using to make their blog pins.

Pinterest

Ok, so everyone has Pinterest ! I always had a Pinterest account way back and pin and bit here and there but never really focused on Pinterest and all what it does until now. I am fully in the Pinterest obsession now, I am now making use of Pinterest for my blog, I am still trying to get my Pinterest strategy and see what works for me but so far so good. I must say Pinterest is like the best yes for getting your blog noticed getting whole loads of traffic but a huge frustration if you ask me.

VSCO

Most people use VSCO, I only mostly use this app to whiten my backgrounds in my photos for my Instagram. This app is really great for overall photo editing I would recommend it for blogging, but overall I use this app only for background whitening.

Preview is pretty much another Plann, it helps organise and help sort and plan out everything you would like to post before uploading your photo. I love using this app for photo editing, if you are looking for an app that can help with colour coordinating your Instagram and making a colour scheme I highly recommend this app. It also helps you with your stats for Instagram you would just have to connect your account.

Tailwind is an app that I just started using, I am still trying to understand it and figure out how this whole app works. But I love using this app to organise and plan and schedule my pinterest postings. I also connected my Instagram account but I dont find it helpful for Instagram just because I have another way of posting my Instagram. This app has help me gain loads of monthly viewers to my pinterest account over night just by planning and scheduling postings for over night. I am still trying to understand and build with tailwind tribes, and find a strategy that works best for me. If you do not have tailwind I would recommend getting it, it is a huge help for pinterest gaining huge amounts of traffic. Hopefully this post has helped with maybe adding something new to your blogging, I hope I somewhat explained how all these apps work. Sorry for todays late posting ( life has taken over) next post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST.
