Background to theory

So a couple years back when I started my program in becoming a esthetician we was starting to learn waxing. Now I loved waxing everyone else but my brows lol. I honestly hardly had any brows this was just natural genetic. I felt like there wasn’t much I can do with them. If I tried and shape them I just might lose to much hair. I still did wax them here and there I had no choice. I did end up liking the end results because it was much easier for me to fill in my brows.

Gaining Growth

So the trick I realized to gain the growth I wanted was one waxing and the second trick I was always doing was brushing my brows. Yup lol just simply brushing my brows everyday. This trick worked because your then stimulate growth. Also because I had to get them waxed that also played a part by allowing the growth to be fuller too. So doing these two things allowed growth and fullness.

How to Contour for beginners

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I am happy I was able to get this post out, this post was long overdue. For today’s post I wanted to talk about how to contour. Contouring is a application technique used to create shadows and bring out your facial structure. This helps makes certain parts of the face stand out and also appear slimmer. The highlight part of contour and highlighting helps bring out the glow in your face of where the sun naturally hits.

Contour
Basic Contouring

So first I want to talk about the basics with contouring. When it comes to contouring you want to choose a shade that is one shade lighter down from your skin tone. Also another tip is knowing your face shape. One thing I notice a lot is that some people tend to contour the same. Your not going to want to do that. Your going to want to determine your face shape first so you know what areas to contour. For example, I have an heart shaped face so I try to always bring out my cheek bones and pay attention to around my chin area. Another tip is making sure to use the right product. But this would be all up to you!

Steps to contouring
  1. Prime with a primer also a moisturizer for your face.
  2. Apply your favourite foundation. With a damp beauty blender.
  3. To contour, your going to want to follow the structure and shadows of your own face shape. If you want to define your jaw line your going to want to blend powder or cream along your jawline. If you want to bring out your cheek bones follow the same steps. Here’s another tip if you love your nose you do not need to contour your nose!
  4. Set your make up, remember to along your T zone. Your going to want to do this with a setting powder. After setting with a powder you can set with a setting spray. Your going to just spray this and this will bring your makeup altogether!

I hope this post was helpful, I tried to get as detailed as possible. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. If any of you have any questions about contour and highlighting please leave a comment. I am always happy to help and I always love reading your comments and questions. I must say contour and highlighting (well more contouring) is one of my favourite parts to a completed makeup look. I love bringing out my natural cheek bones and just playing around with it. What are some of your favourite products for contour and highlighting? Do you find it easy or difficult when it comes to contouring? Please leave a comment, like and please share! Also if you haven’t checked out my last post you can find that HERE.

Brow Hack

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. For today’s blog post I wanted to share how I do my brows. My regular routine I’ve been sticking to for like forever. Now I just want to share my routine what works for me. I just wanted to share tips because this might just work for someone else or at least give them a idea on how to do their brows. Now to be completely honest with you all I never knew how to do brows, I sucked. I now know but am no make up artist, like I said I know what works for me. Now for my hack am just going to explain my routine and steps.

Base

Some of you might know or not, but I am combination skin type. So this means am oily in my t zone. This causes my forehead area to get oily throughout the day. And this would always cause my brows and makeup in general to slide right off. Honestly this was so annoying to me, but I realized I just needed the right brow products and primer for my skin concerns. It’s all about laying down a great base for longer wear.

Products

So you have your base, and all you need are the right products. My hack for holding down my brows and to help grip my brows is my primer. The Becca matte pore less primer. I have been using this product for awhile now and I love it. The consistency is matte and a glue like texture so it for sure does what it says. Applying this I found helps matte any oils I have around my brows and also helps keep my brows in place when I add product.

Next, the brow pencil I use to do my brows is the Benefit brow pencil. I love their product I have never had any problems and also I find it so much easy using this pencil. The product I use to use to do my brows was Anastasia. I have used the pomade and pencil and it just wasn’t for me.

After applying the matte base, my brows are so much easier to apply product to. I brush through my brows and apply! I just want to make a disclaimer that when apply a lot of this product it can leave white streaks. So a little goes a long way! After I am done all that I finish off with the benefit brow gel. That is another product I am loving.

This is my usual brow routine whenever I do my brows. I would say throughout the day my brows stay in place much better then me just applying the pencil right away without a base. I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post. Look out for me uploads during this week. Also what are some brow products you all enjoy? Or even live by? You absolutely won’t switch from ? Please let me know in the comments! And please share, like and comment! You can even let me know any hacks you have in the comments. If you haven’t read last post you can find that HERE.

On the go 5 – 15 Min Beauty Routine

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone is had a great weekend. For today’s blog post I wanted to do my beauty routine. And I thought of to post my 5 -15 min beauty routines. This is a great post for those beauty college students or even moms like me that is on the go. Now since becoming a second time mom I have absolutely no time to put on make up.

For example the other day I actually had to ask myself “do I even know how to apply makeup still?”. Yeah it’s that bad, I miss those times. I see all these social influence’s moms looking fab and I need their secrets on how. But then again have to remind myself it’s all a lie! LOL not realistic at all. Now when I am in a rush I need to at least do these steps!

Concealer

Now since am a busy mom of two, I have no time to even perfect foundation anymore and do a whole beauty routine, so concealer has become a back up. I actually do not have bad skin at all so I always use concealer and do quick touch ups on my face. My skin looks great and it still can breath throughout the day. Now for this trick you’d need a great coverage concealer.

Beauty Routine
Brows

For some odd reason I never before was brow obsessed. Now I have to at least do my brows if am going out. If I don’t get to apply concealer this has to be at least done. I feel like doing brows just frames a girls face and hides everything else. This I always try and get done when I am in a huge rush to go out. And sadly I always feel like am in a rush.

Lipstick or Gloss

Okay, every girl has at least this on. Even if I don’t got my lipstick on I have to have my Rihanna fenty gloss. To be honest lately I haven’t been wearing lipstick. And I don’t know if it has to do with me not putting on a full face anymore. But I’ve haven’t touched any lipstick for awhile. I have tried sometimes putting some on and I always end up taking it off . I love using the Fenty gloss though because I love how clear and simple yet tinted it is. It gives a beautiful finish and it actually keeps my lips moisturized.

Beauty Routine
Lashes

So basically if concealer is out of my timing I always almost always have to have my lashes. Honestly if I had to name my top two I can’t leave the house without doing it would be lashes and brows. Anyways before I was into lashes but I love wearing them most of the time now. I love how much they bring out my eyes without having to wear a full face or even eyeshadow. I have them last long which keeps me from spending so much money on buying them.

Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope my 5 to 15 minute beauty routine some what helps you. This is what 90% of the time I do now a days because I am always in a rush. You don’t specifically have to follow my routine, you can find what works for you. If you haven’t got to read my latest post please do so you can find this HERE.

For today’s post I wanted to do a review on spa subscriptions a facial brand. I got a few of the products sent to me awhile back and I wanted to try it out before I talk about it. If you would like to check out the brand you can find them HERE.

Unmask your natural beauty.” – Spascriptions

I received the 3 pack face masks, it’s ideal for all skin types and the package contains 3 different types of masks. You can use each masks at a time or you can use all three to target different skin issues. These products are PH balanced and is hypo – allergenic. When you receive you package each comes with an applicator which is one of the things I loved about their products. This applicator helps you easily and quickly apply your mask mess free. Spascriptions also has a 15 minute facial therapy.

Spascriptions

15 Minute Facial Therapy
“ • Cleanse and dry the face
• Dip brush applicator into jar and scoop desired amount
• Spread evenly over the face, avoiding eyes and lips
• If applying more than one mask, wash brush between each mask application and repeat the above
• Relax for 15-minutes whilst the mask works its magic
• Gently rinse off remaining residue “ – Spascriptions

In my three package I received the silver mask which is the charcoal clay, a yellow royal honey and a pink which helps with collagen. So far using their products I haven’t had any problem with them. The masks are great on my skin and they haven’t caused my skin to break out whatsoever. I love how they package their products with an applicator because it’s so easy to use that to apply the products mess free. I even have been using the applicator to apply my flow recipe sleeping mask. As for results i honestly haven’t been seeing a difference in my skin. But I hardly get or have issues with my skin it’s pretty close to a normal skin type so that could be why so I wouldn’t label the products for the “not use” drawer.

Therefore Spascriptions is a pretty affordable brand you can probably find it at your nearest pharmacy store. I overall feel like the brand is okay it’s adorable and their products work great. Also they are all for all ski types so if you would like to check them out link is attached. Thanks for everyone who read today’s post.
