Notes & Common Questions

1. Do you do this EVERY DAY?

In short, yes. While I used to just do a basic cleanse, tone, and moisturize, I have noticed a huge turnaround in the moisture and health of my skin since expanding the steps I take. If I am particularly lazy (which happens every once in a while) I will downgrade my evening steps to cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturizer but this only happens rarely. When I started expanding my steps, it was a chore but now it feels weird if I don’t do each step, and it’s as routine as brushing my teeth before bed. Let me put it this way, when I had invasive gallbladder surgery, I still forced myself out of bed to hobble over to my sink to do my skincare — I’m a freak, I know.

2. I’M TOO POOR TO DO THIS. YOU MUST BE RICH?!

Haha…no – not. at. all. if you are serious about upping your game there are plenty of drugstore priced brands you can choose from, and I typically get mine from Ebay, Amazon, or beauty subscription boxes that allow me to use higher end samples of great products. I certainly haven’t just gone out and bought 80 products at one time — instead I focused on developing a regimen that I added to over the last year and a half. One product at a time until I found something that worked for me.

3. WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TYPE/AGE/CONCERNS??

I’m a 31 year old woman with combination skin (oilier t-zone and dryer perimeter) and am prone to redness, hyper pigmentation, uneven texture and the occasional breakout. If you have severely acne-prone skin, you really should consider seeing a dermatologist. I have no background in skincare so I am not at all qualified to recommend products for a chronic condition. I can only speak for my own skin condition.

4. WHY DO YOU DO SO MANY STEPS??

This is the Korean method, and there can be even more steps than the ones that I do. Since the goal is to maintain skin health, I feel it’s important to spend as much time on my skin as I do on applying my makeup. So if I don’t apply makeup, I don’t tend to do every step. Once you reach your mid-twenties you can start to notice considerable changes in the way your skin operates and what may have become acceptable before (cleansing and moisturizing) naturally would need more steps if your skin is aging. At 31, I am lucky to have very little permanent damage to my skin and almost no fine lines or wrinkles yet. The key for me is prevention – I refuse to spend $300 on some wrinkle repair cream because I chose to ignore my skin until I turned 45.

There are a lot of information that can be found online and Youtube is a great place to find recommendations. Here are a few that I suggest:

  • The Beauty Breakdown
  • Glow Recipe
  • Lia Yoo
  • Nadine Baggott
  • Wishtrend TV
  • Caroline Hirons
  • Gothamista
  • Edward Avila
  • Joan Kim
  • Soko Glam

If you ever have any questions about this let me know. Do you have a favorite product that you love using?

Hey, guys here is a list of things you should be doing every day or that I highly recommend for every day. Hope you enjoy and no this isn't particularly studying stuff but it’s really important reminder or even a checklist you can go through to make sure you can do better in your work and keep your body healthy

1. Brush your teeth twice and floss every day. Just do it, it’s like 5 minutes max

2. Drink drink drink! Keep hydrated try this app called “Plant Nanny” it’s where you grow a plant and every time you need to give it water it reminds you to also drink water

3.  Workout or even walk if you can. yes your a super busy person trying to succeed in life and everything seems overwhelming but if you take at the very lease 10 minutes to go a jog you will thank me

4. Wash your face + moisturize No you don’t have to moisturize but I would highly suggest it. Keep your skin looking young and healthy

5. Eat healthy Yes, healthy food is expensive especially if your in college but try your best because even when I’m eating healthier it motivates me to get shit done not shit in front of the tv munching on some pasta

6.Take a deep breath Have some you time. Just take a few moments to breath do some meditation or yoga or listen to some music. Five minutes won’t cost you what you’ll think it will really help you

7. Don’t stare at the computer screen Every so often get up do some jumping jacks, look out a window, get the blood pumping, rest your eyes.

8. Manage your time wisely If. you. wait. till. the. very. last. moment. you. will. want. to. kill. yourself. I’ve had at least three mental breakdowns due to this and I’m learning from my mistakes. I literally started crying and couldn’t breathe in a classroom because I didn’t understand what was going on and it was due the next day.

9. Drop the negative people Trust me if they don’t hype you up about your amazing test scores, or that you shed a few pounds they are not worth it. Surround yourself with people that have the same interests as you so you can motivate each other

10. Think more positively Don’t complain as much. This one hits right at home with me because I’m always complaining no matter what and I’ve been on a minimal complaining mission. Think about all the things you can do.

 Other things that aren’t necessary but definitely nice and relaxing

1. Paint your nails

2. Take a nice bath you can do so much from relaxing to studying; bath bombs make it even better

3. Shave your legs tell me doesn’t feel amazing to get into bed with soft legs

4. Grow your eyebrows I made a little serum to help me achieve the naturally bushy but amazing eyebrow that are actually natural. Mix a bit of aloe with caster oil and a little bit of oil whether it is almond or coconut just a drop will do the trick. Just make sure it’s okay and good for you and doesn’t have any negative side effects

5. Maracuja oil is a multi-beneficial oil with a whole ton of good stuff for you. Yes, im only 14 and I don’t have wrinkle but I put that stuff all over my face and neck to help me in the future.

6. A tiny bit of makeup can go a long way. You’ve been up later studying or doing whatever or you just have dark circle under your eyes. Take a bit of orange color corrector and pat that into the skin followed by some concealer.

favorite beauty products 💖

sharing a list and a general description of my favorite beauty products that i feel works well on everybody!

  • glossier skin tint- i have oily skin and this tint is watery but i love for everyday use when i’m going to class or running quick errands so i don’t look completely dead. it really hydrates my skin and feels super soft. there are only 5 shades but i have to say that they’re pretty universal and since they’re watery, they don’t look too transforming when it’s on the face.
  • milk holographic stick- absolutely love putting it on the high points of my face. it gives the skin a nice celestial glow. depending on the skin, it can look like a shimmery silver to an iridescent lavender. great for #sadgirlclublooks
  • wet n wild icon glitter singles- only like a dollar and perfect for going out. normally, people put it on their lids with a primer but i like highlighting my cheekbones with it. so many colors too, my favorite is the magenta shade called groupie.
  • too faced love flush blush- various colors from warm peaches to cooler pinks. also cute af packaging, long lasting, and compact.
  • anastasia bh lip gloss- a variety of shades from pale pinks to spice colored nudes. gloss is great for people who want a little extra pout but also great to highlight for people who have beautiful big lips.
  • tarte maracuja oil- great for all skin types and vegan friendly. i always use this before applying any kind of full coverage foundation. it gives me a radiant glow and most importantly, it keeps me from looking like a corpse.

Please share your favorites because I would love to know and learn more! Makeup is life tbh.

anonymous asked:

What's your skincare routine?

first i use a clean and clear deep pore cleanser, then a simple foam cleanser, then my thayers rosewater toner! after that, i normally do a mask! here is a list of my masks:

sheet (personal fav):

  • tonymoly
  • a’pieu
  • literally anything that is hydrogel

dry-down:

  • aztec secret healing clay mask (!!!)
  • true botanicals resurfacing moisture mask
  • queen helene mint julep masque
  • freeman avocado & oatmeal clay mask
  • pur~lisse blue lotus seed mask
  • l’oreal pure clay mask
  • global beauty care charcoal mask
  • nugg lip mask

lastly, if i don’t do a mask or if my face is feeling like it needs some Help, first i apply the ren global protection day cream, then the organic pharmacy lip & eye cream, then the tarte maracuja oil, and lastly the first aid beauty ultra repair moisturizer!

anonymous asked:

What order should my nighttime skincare routine go in? I know cleanser and toner come first, but I also use a prescription trentinoid cream for fine lines and acne, Clinique Dramatically Different lotion, Tarte maracuja oil, and an eye cream. I usually use the trentinoid on top of the toner, but can't decide whether the oil or the lotion should come next. And then the eye cream last. What do you think?

Hello :)

The order is typically the thinnest consistency to the thickest.

  1. Liquid products like toners, essence, facial mists, etc go on right after cleanser. 
  2. Thicker liquids like serums, thicker essence, ampoule, gels, etc, go on after thin/water light liquids.
  3. Follow with creams, moisturizers, eye cream. Creams seal everything in, all those serums and toners you just used will absorb into the skin thanks to moisturizer’s emollients. 
  4. Lastly, and the exception is oil. Oil can penetrate through moisturizer and creams but creams can not penetrate through oil. So if you apply oil first, moisturizer will just sit on top of the skin and not sink in. It’s not as thick as moisturizer but carries well and also helps seal everything in. 

Usually something that is prescribed will come with instructions or you can ask your doctor what they recommend!

Not to shabby for a small town 1hr haul

As savvy Sephora shoppers know, the register line is what’s up. Hiding in those little bins that frame the walk to the cashiers are minis prime for packing in any bag—whether it’s carry-on luggage for your trip to Bora Bora or a satchel for your bike ride to the farmers’ market. The fact is, the weather is killing it, and we’re looking for any excuse to be out and about. These are the pint-sized products in our bags that keep us prepared for any summer adventure at a moment’s notice. BECKY PEDERSON

Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit
Consider this the put-together power woman’s army knife. This 17-piece kit is made to get you through a variety of beauty, fashion, and hygiene woes—and it comes neatly packed in a cutie-patootie, TSA-compliant pouch so small it will fit in the palm of your hand.

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler
Feeling knotty? Painlessly untangle unintentional dreadlocks from running around the beach, chasing cute dogs in the park, or whatever it is you’re doing to while away the days, you crazy kid. The unique brush teeth move with your hair, minimizing breakage as it styles.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Blotting Papers
Calling the grease police! Summer brings humidity, and humidity brings facial oil spills. Unless you want your face to shine like a beacon, it’s smart to tote around blotting sheets. SEPHORA COLLECTION offers packs with six different skin-care benefits, including tea tree to address tired skin and mint to cool and soothe.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée
Nothing dreamily whispers relaxation quite like sipping on fresh coconut water. Even if palm trees aren’t on your horizon, you can still enjoy some aloha vibes compliments of Josie Maran. This gelée is meant to be applied as a blush, but pro tip: It works great as a lip stain, too.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof
Maybe we’re still reeling from our spring cleaning frenzy, but we’re really into beauty products that secretly double as other products right now. In addition to the above gelée, the other twofers in our collection are these mega eyeliners. They come in an array of colors and can be smudged out into an eye shadow look.

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia Rollerball
Summer is a really good time to pretend you’re a mermaid trapped in a human’s body, regardless of whether you have access to the ocean (or even a kiddie pool). This aquatic fragrance is a must. It’s inspired by the Mediterranean Sea with hints of jasmine, pink pepper, and Italian lemon. (Does not come with guardian crab angel.)

Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanning Face Towelettes
If you’re still as pale as the ghost of winters past, this pack of towelettes is your new BFF. It’s infused with maracuja oil, which has been known to brighten skin’s appearance. The formula also has vitamins A and E to protect against free radicals while moisturizing—and of course, tanning.

Let’s start with one simple truth: beauty oils are as versatile as they are varied. The trick lies in knowing how to use them. Here are ten more truths to help you—and a dare: to try out oils in whatever way suits your skincare fancy.

  1. Press oils onto your face—don’t rub.
  2. Apply your skincare in order of thickness, with the thinner formulas first. This usually means oil goes after serum but before moisturizer.
  3. Mix oil with your foundation for additional moisture and skincare benefits.
  4. Massage oil over a dry clay-based mask to help remove it easily.
  5. Smooth oil over dry nail polish for a flexible, high-shine seal that resists scuffs.
  6. Dab oil on your pulse points before spraying on perfume to prolong the scent.
  7. Add oil to your shampoo or conditioner for silkier strands.
  8. Use oil on dry hair to tame flyaways.
  9. Blend oil with your body moisturizer or apply it directly on extra-dry patches for a boost of hydration.
  10. Oils can be used day or night.

anonymous asked:

How do you keep your skin so clear? I tried many things and I still have visible pores etc. What's your technique?

first thing you should know is that i’m a bit of a skincare addict…

i’ve must’ve tried over 100 skincare products and i love it so much!! 

here is my current skincare routine:

Cleansing oil: oil breaks down oil so if you have oily skin, oil cleanser is even better for you!! i ran out of my favorite which is the DHC cleansing oil because it’s super gentle and pretty cheap. PLEASE STOP USING CLEANSING WIPES OMG THEY ARE SO BAD FOR YOUR SKIN!!! CLEANSING OIL OR CLEANSING CREAM IS SOOOO MUCH BETTER FOR YOU BECAUSE GENTLE IS BEST

Angels on Bare skin cleanser by Lush: super gentle, slightly exfoliating cleanser with lavender to calm down skin!! HOLY GRAIL CLEANSER

Breath of fresh air toner by Lush: super calming toner!! HOLY GRAIL TONER SPRAY!! if you have acne prone skin, try out their eu roma water or the tea tree water

Shiseido White Lucent Serum: clears dark spots like nothing else! if you splurge on any item in skincare, splurge on a serum because they work deep down into the pores!

Tarte Maracuja oil: this is my HOLY GRAIL moisturizer!! i’ve gone through 2 normal size bottles and then bought the extra large size ahah!! i often mix it with another moisturizer i have on me if i need the extra help!

Exfoliation: I use the Cure aqua gel which is the most gentle exfoliator i’ve EVER used and it makes your skin sooooooooooooooooooOOOoo soft and lasts forever! Every few months if my skin is especially dull and congested, i used the Olay microdermabrasion kit. PLEASE DO NOT USE LIKE SHITTY NEUTROGENA GRAPEFRUIT SCRUBS WITH LITTLE BEADS CAUSE THATS SOOO BAD FOR YOUR SKIN!!

Masks: find the mask for your skin type! cheap hydration sheet masks from my beauty diary are great! you could also splurge on SKII or Shiseido sheet masks or just go to your drugstore and get a gentle clay mask. try out some stuff!

THAT WAS A LOT OF MY SKINCARE ADVICE!!! ALSO REMEMBER TO WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAYYYY BECAUSE THATS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD!! my favorite is Shiseido Anessa in the gold bottle!

messrprongs  asked:

Hello! Just wondering, do you have a dupe for Tarte's Maracuja Oil? Thanks <3

Hi there :)

If you want a more affordable facial oil try oils like

Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil $25. This is a more “oily” and is very luminous so great for dry to very dry skin but not so much for normal to oily. 

Boots Botanics Facial Oil $9. This is probably my favorite drugstore facial oil. It has rose hip which is great for the skin and is organic! Can get this at Target or online. 

Yes to Blueberries Face and Neck Oil $15. 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Face $10. Has retinol and vitamin c to help fade dark spots and even the skin. Also one of my favs!

Good face moisturizers?

I use the tea tree oil face moisturizer from the body shop, argan oil/maracuja oil, grapeseed oil r the foutain of youth from the body shop. DON’T USE COCONUT OIL AS A MOISTURIZER (itwillclogyourpores) patch test before you try

Pampering myself tonight. Took a LUSHcious (lol) bath, followed by a lotion rub for my legs, a lush massage bar back rub, a Burt’s bees coconut foot rub, a maracuja oil face treatment, and an organic coconut oil hair treatment that I’ll be leaving in over night. Fuck yes.
