Using coconut oil as eye makeup remover has changed my life for the better. My eyelashes have grown to the point where they curl and are visible over my eyelids. And it works wonders for stubborn makeup that can’t be removed by makeup wipes. It’s a 2 in 1 deal and it’s purely organic. Reblog to save a life
Hope you like my first hoe tips and beauty tips thread! These pearls of wisdom really help me a lot. Let me know what you think.
-💗 COCONUT OIL WILL TURN YOUR HAIR INTO SILK leave on overnight or if u don’t have time use a hairdryer to heat ur hair for 10 minutes for the oil to sink in. Wash with shampoo to make sure the oil is out and enjoy ur beautiful hair
-💗 tie your hair before you sleep and during sex, preferably in a ponytail or a very loose and low bun, if its damaged and tangles/frizzes easily in bed. Trust me this has saved my hair from breaking apart
-💗 chuck out ur foam and shave ur coochie with baby oil hell shave ur whole body with this beautiful oil just be careful not to apply it too close to the vaginal opening as u should only wash that area with water or a feminine wash
-💗 bicarbonate of soda or COFFEE granules are cheap easy and natural face scrubs/masks and will leave ur skin baby soft
-💗 for acne - sudocrem, witch hazel oil, tea tree oil are all cheap and effective
-💗 honey, lemon juice and olive oil mask for acne scars use everyday or every other day for half an hour and keep it up for a few months
-💗 don’t use coconut oil to moisturise ur face it has been proved it blocks ur pores which can cause acne
-💗 always leave spare clean panties, leggings/trackies and a top in ur car so if u stay round someone’s place u can sleep and chill comfortably n keep sexy underwear with u in ur bag just incase
-💗 a cup of apple cider vinegar in your bath will restore ur coochie’s pH to its normal state so less discomfort for u ☺️
-💗 for soft baby feet, pumice the dry heels then coat them with Vaseline and put clean socks over before u sleep and ur bae will be wanting to stroke them all day
-💗if ur into guys, carry condoms in ur purse at all times; don’t expect them to provide them all the time because truth is they don’t always n u don’t wanna be in that position where ur risking ur sexual health
-💗 combo of double wear foundation n urban decay all nighter setting spray is sex proof
-💗 coconut oil is good natural lube for giving head to guys , and the taste is good too.
hello younger girls, trans girls, and anyone who wants to learn how to do makeup and doesn’t have $3k to drop on a kit, here’s a compilation of things i’ve learned doing makeup on myself and others over the years, and overspending on like, everything
- if you’re going to invest in anything, invest in foundation that won’t clog your pores/irritate your skin
- nyx has good eyeshadow singles
- nyx primer is also a+
- nyx is just great ok
- morphe palettes are twice as big as sephora palettes and half the price, and they’re almost (if not equally) as good.
- if you’re spending over 8$ on mascara you probably have something to prove
- take care of your skin your makeup will look 10x better if you do
- makeup wipes are convenient but overpriced and wasteful: garnier miscellar water is like $6.50, works better, and lasts a long time. put it on a paper towel or a kleenex or a cotton pad.
- beauty blenders are just fancy sponges that soak up your product and grow bacteria. don’t let instagram tell you you need one
- all the brushes you need: foundation (there are lots of kinds, my favorite is a japonesque round tapered synthetic brush), big fluffy powder, little fluffy blender for crease, little flat one for eyelid, medium fluffy cheek brush, eyeliner brush (angle or tiny skinny one, whichever you like better. sephora has an amazing angle liner brush for ~$14), brow brush if your aren’t using gel. the rest are great but you can do a full face with just those 7.
- don’t use creams with natural hair brushes. morphe + real techniques have great synthetic ones.
- maybelline 24 hour tattoo gel eyeliner is $9 and better than every gel liner i’ve ever used
- light-medium foundation with buildable coverage: one foundation for everyday and full glam
- colourpop’s lip products are ~$6 each and they’re amazing
- spray brush cleaner!!!!!!!!! (you can use rubbing alcohol but it can dry out natural hair brushes, and make sure it’s dry before putting it near your eyes bc that shit hurts)
- buy lashes online, buy duo lash glue at cvs
- HALLOWEEN STORE GLITTER (make sure it’s cosmetic grade!)
One of the most common
mistakes people make when it comes to setting their face is quickly dusting powder over their skin and
calling it a day, whilst this is quick and easy it really isn’t the most effective way to use a setting powder and set your makeup in place. Not only can it disturb the foundation underneath, but it can also give you an uneven, dry and cakey finish to your makeup.
TIP: You can use any liquid to matte lipstick as eyeliner. All you would need is a pointed or angled brush to apply it. In my opinion, liquid lipsticks are easier to apply as eyeliner than gel or liquid eyeliner.
In these photos above, I used Jeffree Star Cosmetics velour liquid lipsticks!
This powder is a best kept beauty secret of mine. You can find it from 2.99-5.00. In this hot Florida weather my makeup would slide off my nose by the end of the day. I use a little of this and this stuff matifies and holds your makeup in place. I forgot to mention it does not cake or crease. 👏👏👏👏
Becoming a make-up artist 8 years ago to me was exciting, uneasy and very challenging.
I believe the new generation of “Professional” make-up artists now have a strenuous and tiring time to grow and become the artist they wish to be. Is it because there is so much competition & easy for anyone to title themselves as a “Makeup Artist” with the access to social media platforms? This debate is becoming more & more of concern to those that have been working in this industry for years. What are your thoughts on this subject?
Even though it seems easy to label yourself as a “Makeup Artist”, it’s not as extremely glamorous as people believe, being a makeup artist can be anything but. I’ve been working as a makeup artist for nearly 8 years now, and I am here to fully confirm that there are several things that people never tell you about the job. The first being that working in the beauty industry isn’t all frills. There are extremely crazy shoot schedules, a plethora of personalities, and lots of curveballs to prepare for especially keeping your regular clients and keeping regular work coming in with so much competition about today.
I have come across many people that wish to be a makeup artist professionally. They ask me; where do you begin? So with everyone wearing the title, how can you really set yourself apart and cut your teeth on our side of the beauty industry? I’m not talking the Youtube side of things..I’m talking a strong body of work you can be proud of, TV, campaigns, editorials, magazines, movies etc and really earn a living from what you love to do!
“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
Why would you want to be like that other make-up artist ON Instagram or YouTube? To become a true artist you must have your own unique style, own direction, goals and most of all to be YOU! Expect more from yourself.
For those wanting to become a makeup artist today here is a check list to help you get started:
Work on building a professional portfolio of images, after all, this is your C.V.
Learn the art of the business
Learn to market yourself
Learn to be a collaborative art director with your client
Find your niche. Whether that be you becoming the best bridal makeup, editorial, TV or film artist.
Assist other artists. Breaking into the industry may require you to work unpaid at first, by assisting established makeup artists. This is a fantastic way to pick up skills & build contacts.
Real-life work experience is everything, so take advantage of opportunities that will add credibility to your CV.
Know how to take direction from authority
Know how to use social media & web development
Know communication skills
Networking is vital to building up contacts and discover new opportunities.
Keep Learning: Study the real beauty experts, NOT YOUTUBE OR INSTAGRAM artists (I use these as inspiration)
Read Makeup Books
Keep practicing your make-up skills
Be on trend. Every fashion week is a great opportunity to keep an eye on makeup trends & new product launches.
Invest in a decent camera(images to be used on social media to market your work, people love behind the scene images!)
Today everything is here and now! And I guess you want to be a famous make-up artist right now? That’s because you see the generation of instafame, getting what you want and coddling. But guess what? It doesn’t work like that. Just remember that Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, and Lisa Eldridge didn’t make it overnight. They are the true beauty experts who started their careers back in the 90s!
“Overcome your barriers, intend the best, and be patient. You will enjoy more balance, more growth, more income, and more fun!”
