I'm the person trying to figure out how to prolong her foundation. 😂 soo, I'm going to sound really dumb. Is using an apricot scrub exfoliating? I do that every other day. What do you use to exfoliate? You are always so helpful!

Those scrubs claim to be exfoliating but they never really do it for me. I used to use the St. Ives one and it just wasn’t a fine enough texture to really exfoliate properly, plus I would always find the little beads in my hairline afterwards 😂

I use (and swear by) the Murad Pore Reform Skin Smoothing Polish! It is pricey it believe me when I say that there’s nothing out there that can even come close to how amazing it is or how smooth your skin will be afterwards. Believe me, I’ve looked. I went few months without it while I tried our basically every drugstore exfoliator and I had to go back. It has thee finest little exfoliate-y particles and it gets every bit of texture off your face AND shrinks your pores AND it’s pink. Soooo, miracle product right there.

*Me to that ex-boyfriend* “Can you buy me pads, the super ones, please...I’ve run out.” *rolls around bed in agony.* *Him shrugging* “Sure, if you want.” *Me* “Really? That was easy. I thought men were weird about that stuff.” *Him* “The drugstore lady isn’t going to think they’re for me, is she?”

Mostly I have shit taste in men.

But once or twice, I got it right.

cold weather survival tips so y’all can start the new year with soft glowy skin

I posted a list of beauty tips for hot weather on my old blog at the beginning of the summer and it went over really well, so I thought I’d do a cold weather version now that we’re in peak chapped-lips-and-cracked-hands season.

  • Do yourself a favor by going to the nearest drugstore and buying the biggest tub of Vaseline/petroleum jelly you can find. 90% of Dry Skin Problems™ can be solved by slapping some Vaseline on there. 
  • Seriously. Chapped lips? Use Vaseline as a lip balm. Dry, cracked heels? Slather those feetsies with Vaseline right before you go to bed (just put socks on to keep from getting your sheets all sticky) for an overnight moisturizing treatment. (You can do the same thing on your hands if they’re dry and cracked!) I’ve even used Vaseline to fix severe dry patches on my face and neck. This stuff is a lifesaver. 
  • (You might also wanna get one of those tiny mini tubs to keep in your jacket pocket or in your bag, so you’ll always have it on you. It works way better than lip balm and is the only thing that can keep my lips from cracking and bleeding all winter long.)
  • While you’re at the store, it’s a good idea to invest in a good lotion. Most scented lotions (especially Bath & Body Works brand) actually make my dry skin worse because of the perfume in them, so you might want to look into an unscented formula. Try to avoid formulas that contain alcohol (which is sometimes used to make the lotion absorb faster) because they’ll dry you out worse than before. 
  • I always recommend using lotions and moisturizers made for sensitive skin even if your skin isn’t actually sensitive, because they don’t have as many harsh ingredients that might draw moisture out of your skin! Looking for formulas with all-natural ingredients (like Burt’s Bees and Yes To) is another good way to avoid heavy chemicals.
  • Replace your makeup remover with olive oil. It melts makeup right off, and you don’t have to scrub at your face like you do with a lot of makeup removers. It’s also super hydrating and makes my skin feel SO SOFT after I use it. (Just be sure to wash it off with a cleanser before you go to bed.) A lot of people use coconut oil the same way, but I’ve never tried it so I can’t speak for how well it works compared to olive oil. 
  • If your foundation sticks really noticeably to the dry patches on your face, a good hydrating makeup primer can help a lot. e.l.f. has really good, really cheap primers that I swear by, and they even have one specifically made for dry skin! (And you can find them at Walmart and most drugstores, so you can swing by and pick it up while you’re getting your groceries.)
  • Avoid “matte” or “mattifying” foundation formulas in general if your skin is really dry, because they’ll just make your dry patches more noticeable. Use a “satin finish” or “dewy finish” foundation instead, and if you want to make it look more matte you can always set it with a powder to take away the shine! 
  • If your lips are really dry and scaly, the best thing to do is just exfoliate the dead skin away. You can make your own lip scrub really easily by mixing sugar with either olive oil or honey, and just rub it on your lips to buff off the dry skin. Be sure to follow with Vaseline or a good lip balm!
  • As a matter of fact, you should really be exfoliating your entire face once or twice a week, especially if you have really dry skin. You can buy exfoliating scrubs at the store for a few bucks or make your own. (My favorite is a homemade scrub with 1 tablespoon of cooled green tea, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and a few drops of tea tree oil. It makes my skin soooo soft and helps fade my acne scars.)
  • Consider replacing your moisturizer with a face-safe oil like jojoba or rosehip at night. (I wouldn’t recommend using olive oil or coconut oil for this though, because they’re a little too heavy.) I started using rosehip oil every night to help with the scarring on my face, and it makes my skin feel so good. It doesn’t absorb right away, so it’s almost like sleeping in a face mask every night, and you wake up with a baby-soft face. This is the first winter I haven’t had really dry patches on my face, and I think using facial oils has a lot to do with it.
  • If your lipstick is drying out your lips, use a very light layer of Vaseline as a lip primer! This also makes the lipstick go on smoother – I’ve been using this trick for chalky/streaky lipsticks for years. (I told you, Vaseline is a lifesaver.)
  • I know everyone on tumblr is always saying this, but it really is important; you gotta stay hydrated. Drink water. (Drinks like soda actually dehydrate you, so it really does have to be water.) If your skin is just feeling a little dryer than usual, it could be because you just aren’t getting enough water. Increasing your water intake is a really easy, completely free way to help your skin out. 
  • And fyi, these tips aren’t just for girls! If you’re a guy with dry skin, feel free to use any and all of the things I talked about in this post! Taking care of your body is gender neutral and everybody deserves to have nice skin.

anonymous asked:

As someone who's super into makeup, why do pro lifting people act like those poor little trans girls need sephora makeup to pass?? Like I could do a full face of drugstore makeup and look amazing for like 200$ less than at sephora. Just go online and read reviews of drugstore makeup and you'll find sooo many quality dupes that are cheap. There's literally no reason you need that 50$ eyeshadow pallet to pass.

Because it’s a shitty excuse for a shitty action. If you’re going to steal to survive, or for your kids, fine. That’s survival. Eating is survival, and sometimes you’re broke and homeless and starving. But a lot of these people aren’t even transwomen, they’re just middle class cis white girls who want things. 

It’s not that big of a deal though because eventually they’ll get caught and scared into not doing it again, or one of their blogs will get on the news as evidence of how much they stole and that’ll be really, really funny so it’s a win-win in the end when you think about it.

My Recommendations for a Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit

I thought about doing a ‘what’s in my makeup bag’ type of post today because I like seeing what other people carry in their makeup bags, but then I remembered that I don’t carry a makeup bag with me. The only time I use makeup bags is when I travel, and half of my stuff goes into a Ziploc. But then I thought I could instead do a drugstore makeup starter kit. I like reading other people’s versions of these as well. I used to get really overwhelmed by everything at the drugstore before I started blogging and I never knew what was good so I just went for what was nicely packaged - which obviously didn’t always go well since the drugstore is full of terrible, straight-from-hell products. I thought this would be helpful to those who are just getting into makeup, and want to start building a little starter kit with affordable products. 

And to be totally honest, it’s not a lazy Sunday afternoon, but actually very late Saturday night but I have nothing else to do other than blog and watch sad movies about broken marriages and drink decaf tea, so here goes.

Staining Tip!

Okay so, if you are ever wondering how to get a blood stain (or, any stain for the matter) out of something, go to your local drugstore and buy a bottle in hydrogen peroxide. That stuff if AMAZING!
(I know this for 2 reasons. 1.) My father used to to be a Paramedic and my mom works at a vet clinic so… they know a thing or two. 2.) I teach/train at my dad’s martial arts school and, our uniforms are white…. I’m in that uniform, 5 hours, everyday of the week… I may or may not have leaked all over my uniform. 🙈)

was supposed to go to the mall, but got lazy and went to the nearest drugstore to lift facial wash (and got a bit carried away lmao)

milani powder blush (x2) - $9
covergirl trunaked palette (x2) - $12
elf eyeshadow palette (x2) - $10
nuance eyeshadow palette - $14
nyx butter gloss (x3) - $6
baby lips (x2) - $6
burt’s bees lip balm - $7

I can’t really afford fancy beauty products ATM but before I buy drugstore moisturizer I will rather go back to being all natural and only use stuff like Aloe Vera, rose water, jojoba oil, tea tree oil and clay masks.

anonymous asked:

what are some good products to get rid of large pores. Not even kidding it felt like over night my pores had doubled in size on my nose and cheeks..... its been almost 2 weeks and it wont go away. Drugstore-mid range prices please. My mom has huge pores has since i can remember. Please tell me this is fixable! Thanks for your time.

Hmmm this is interesting! I’m definitely not an expert, so I don’t want to pretend like I know what I’m talking about. This is all coming from some quick Internet research, my own personal advice taken from friends that have had an issue similar to yours, and some “basics” from skincare experts that I’ve read articles from. I say “basics” because science is always changing and what is the answer right now isn’t going to be the right answer in like 10 years. Ya know? Anyway, disclaimer aside here is my advice:

Keep your skin clean with gentle products. I think LUSH would be a great place to get a cooling face cleanser or mask that will help to minimize pores and skin irritation. I specifically like LUSH because of their natural ingredients and I feel that it’s definitely healthier for my skin. You can get Rosy Cheeks for about $12 and it lasts a long time because you don’t need to use much. Other gentle cleansers are from Soap and Glory. I use one called a cleansing milk. Basically anything that has natural ingredients and is gentle. 

I’ve also read that if you’re using products that irritate your skin it can actually stretch out your pores. 

Toner is also great for your skin. If you don’t include it in your skincare routine, I definitely recommend it. I use one from Simple called Facial Soothing Toner. Toners help balance your skins PH levels after cleansing with other products. I feel like it gives my skin a healthier feel and cleans out my pores even more. This may be helpful for you to try out :)

Hope I helped and gave you some new ideas!
