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.


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.


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.


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?

Body and Mind Health Routine

2.6.17 006

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.

12 geeky looks of Christmas, Day 1

First day from my 12 Geeky Looks of Christmas. Inspired by @notahotlibrarian who suggested Amazon from Themyscira. 

As I was looking at pics of the Amazon women from Wonder Woman, I was most pulled towards Hippolyta, mother of Diana, and the QUEEN WHO JUMPED INTO BATTLE IN HER FUR COAT. 

Originally posted by celebritiesandmovies

I was completely mesmerized by her whenever she was onscreen. She stole every scene she was in. 

The thing that stood out to me the most about the Amazons, as far as makeup goes, was they were very natural, but also just very healthy and radiant. They spent a lot of time training in the sun so they’d be very bronzed and glowy. And I totally believe that none of these women would shy away from some bangin’ highlight. Their brows are all defined, cheeks are flushed, skin flawless, as they are kind of goddesses after all. 

So in keeping with the Amazon theme, I tried to use all Tarte products where I could, as they have a whole Amazonian clay line. I mean, I couldn’t resist. I also used any and all glowy/illuminating products, as I wanted to glow to the gods and goddesses, and the tones are all warm, golden, or bronze. 

Primer: Glamglow glowstarter, Smashbox radiance primer, Foundation: Loreal Pro Glo + Tarte Maracuja oil, Powder: Milani Prep Set & Glo, Brows: Anastasia Dip Brow, Shadow: Tarte Amazonian Clay Face Play palette, Milani Everyday Eyeshadow palette in Earthy Elements, Colourpop Supernova shadow in Dragon, Contour/Bronzer: Tarte Amazonian Clay Play Face palette, Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Sensual, Highlight: Laura Geller Baked Gelato in Gilded Honey (THIS IS THE BEST SHIT), Mascara: Tarte Tarteist Mascara, lips: Colourpop ultra-metallic in glam + Ultra-glossy in Wham, Setting Spray: Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray. 

Whew. My skin is GLOWING for the goddesses, you guys. Hope you dig it. Stay tuned for Day 2.

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! 

 ten beginner friendly makeup products 

  1. urban decay revolution lipsticks - beautiful creamy formula with great pigmentation!! super comfortable 
  2. morphe eyeshadow palettes - SO affordable and very high quality pigmentation and blending ability. a little goes a looooong way
  3. real techniques brushes - from the drugstore, very soft, ive never had an issue with hairs falling out
  4. tarte maracuja oil - technically not a makeup product but this is one of my holy grail skincare items and sometimes i mix it with my foundation to make my foundation dewier and glide on smoother (use this if you have dry or normal skin)
  5. nars velvet lip pencil - glides right on and has incredible pigmentation and longevity. doesn’t smudge easily 
  6. maybelline lash sensational - best drugstore mascara ive ever tried!!!!
  7. sephora collection blushes - most beginner friendly blush ever, not SUPER pigmented where its scary to apply but pigmented enough for a nice wash of color 
  8. makeup geek foiled eyeshadows - very intensely metallic without needing to be applied wet, it looks like youre using a loose pigment (which can be difficult and messy to use) but in reality its just a fabulous eyeshadow 
  9. cover fx enhance click highlight - SO easy to blend and very forgiving if you overdo it accidentally! swipe on your cheekbones and blend with your fingertips and it looks perf
  10. buxom lip cream - beautiful lip glosses in tons of colors, super great to throw on over bare lips or on top of a lipstick for extra shine!! has just enough pigmentation to give lips color but not so much pigmentation that its intimidating to apply

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

this is my current emergency 911 skincare routine for when my skin is feeling extra dry and yucky! super straightforward and simple. yesterday i posted videos to my snapchat @kkartarii explaining the steps but basically they are as follow:

1) purity face wash w/ a washcloth
2) tea tree oil spot treatment
3) 5-6 drops of maracuja oil
4) thick layer of clinique moisture surge

i do this a few hours before bedtime so my skin has lots of time to soak in the products without my pillow wiping everything off when i sleep


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.
