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.

New Year Goals

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post and my first post of 2020. I just would like to say happy new year to everyone. I hope you all had a great start to the new year and I hope you accomplish all your goals. For this year i am setting goals for myself and hopefully sticking to it. I wanted to share my list and talk about some goals I wanted to achieve for this year. I have done a couple posts in the past on different goals I’ve wanted to achieve. If you haven’t read any you can find these posts on my blog site. You can type in the search bar “goals”.

  • Gain traffic
  • Sticking to schedules
  • Staying up to date on social media posts
  • Pinterest
  • Improving my skills
Gain Traffic

Let’s face it, for some of us bloggers coming up with a marketing strategy for traffic comes easy. And for some (like me) becomes difficult. This year I’ve decided to put in more time on my blog when it comes to Pinterest and work harder in driving traffic to my page.

Sticking to schedule

One thing I really want to do, that’s always at the top of my list is sticking to my consistent schedule. Now I know I can’t get mad if I trail off. Being a mom of two a wife and a blogger is a hectic schedule. Sometimes my kids schedule just don’t fall in place with my blog schedule and posts go un typed or unscheduled. But this year I want maybe a little less of that. I want to stay consistent and organized, plan posts ahead type some up ahead so I can get more content out there. So far into 2020 I have not started this goal but here I am trying.

Staying up to date with social media

This goal kinda goes hand and hand with my goal of staying consistent. I feel like if everything isn’t staying consistent and am not posting then I won’t reach my amount of traffic I want. The most social media platform I usually fall off on random days are twitter. And this is because with Twitter you have to sit and read tweets and take time out your day to tweet. As a busy mom I don’t get much time to do this so I don’t bother to go on everyday. And for Instagram it’s the lack of finding what I want to post. Staying consistent with my colour feed making sure what I want to post goes with my feed. And to be honest it’s all hard lol.

Pinterest

Pinterest, the number one social media platform that every blogger is using. Also if you don’t have me yet on Pinterest please add me HERE. Now I am always trying to find time to piñon Pinterest. I love going on there for fashion inspiration or hairstyles for my girls, whenever I can grab my iPad am always pinning. But that hard thing is finding the right time to pin my content. Or even making the right blog graphics, and making sure you got a great photo. This year I want to actually sit and start making my Pinterest strategy. I never actually took the time to create one it was more when I got the time I’d just pin. But what are some strategies that worked for you all? Please let me know in the comments.

Improving Skills

I am always trying to improve my photography skills. Especially for Instagram or even if it is for any blog content. People are always attracted to a good photo. I have came a long way with this, at the start of my blog career my photos were pretty awful on my blog. But along the way I learned how to improve my skills. But hey that’s the way we can learn and get better. I really want to improve my Instagram content a lot and gain more engagement. Hopefully I can stick to it and actually do it this year.

Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope some of my goals for this year helped you. What are some of your goals for this year? Please like, share and comment. I always love hearing your thoughts. Also if you haven’t read my latest posts please read HERE.

Spascriptions Review

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog page. Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday. I will be putting out posts for the rest of December and 2019. 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.

About Spascriptions

Nature and science combine for skincare solutions designed to target specific skincare needs.

Developed by an expert team of researchers and chemists, SPASCRIPTIONS combines advanced technology with high-quality ingredients for a skincare range that fits into your existing skincare routine.

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. I will be uploading another post for tomorrow so look out for that. Please like comment and share! I always love reading your comments.

3 Blogging Mistakes

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. For today’s blog post I thought I wanted to talk about my three major blogging mistakes I’ve made. I’ve made a past blog post on things I wish I knew before blogging so I thought this would be a great next post. If you haven’t yet got to read that post you can find that HERE. Now the three things I’ll be listing are things I didn’t know about or understood when starting a blog. I just want to state these may be different towards you or other bloggers. Everyone creates their own mistakes and it’s just part of the journey of blogging. We all have to create mistakes to get better and improve. I am still making mistakes even now.

1. Proofreading

Yes, proofreading. I know you all or some are maybe like “how?” Everyone knows after writing you proofread your work. Well I hate proofreading and correcting and all that Jazz to be honest. And I honestly was never good at English in school and I suck at writing sometimes. I’ve always struggled with this at school and even as a soon to be 27 year old. That is what somewhat held me back from starting a blog in some ways but I decided to overcome that feeling and go for it. Thanks to my wonderful husband also when he is available he will go over my post for me and correct anything that needs to be corrected. But even tho I suck at it I realized as a blogger I need to make sure things are corrected regardless if I hate it. This will affect views and follows and I got to stay professional with my work.

2. SEO

Search engine optimization, this is something I totally didn’t know or understood about when I just started blogging. I would see a lot of bloggers talking about this and a lot of blog posts on this. Of course I did my research and read as much as I could about this and slowly started to grasp what search engine optimization was. Now with the help of plug-ins I make search all or least most of my blogs are SEO. Now whenever I don’t get blog posts up or it’s not a day i post I still get good amounts of searches on google. I am still always trying to make sure to improve my SEO writing.

3. Word Count

My third and last blogging mistake is word count. At the beginning of my blogging even still sometimes now I noice when I make some blog posts some are pretty short. I don’t know if I only do this but at the end I hate it. One of the things I wanted to try and do differently was make longer blog posts. For one it can increase more of my traffic and following and actually make people want to read my content. I didn’t want to be known for the blogger who make short postings. So I have made a change and increase my word count on my content and I have noticed a difference throughout the months. What I have done to help me was I would chose topics I can really elaborate on. It was the best way to change the way I write and it has worked so far.

Thanks for reading, I hope any of mistakes can help any of you that may be starting a blog or want to even start one. Remember we are all learning and it’s okay to make mistakes here and there throughout our blogging journey. Please remember to like, comment and follow if you haven’t yet! I always love to hear from you all. Comment any blog mistakes you may of had or found bit of a struggle? May even help me lol See you all in my next post !
