USEFUL TRICK #3

Got Damaged Hair? And You don't want to spend $20 or more for a damage friendly Shampoo and Conditioner? Well I have a helpful hint!


1> Use Non-foaming face wash!!!! Yes I said Face wash... Now why would I be saying face wash? Because it doesn't contain the detergents found in lathering shamoos, so it won't damage your hair. And Guess WHAT! They actually used to wash babies' hair with it in the hopsitals! SO if it safe for your babies hair then It's good for yours....


Now if you have oily hair, just work the cleanser into your hair, and rinse....If you have dry hair, work the cleanser into your hair, and then follow up with a rich conditioner.


What kind? Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (photo above)

Useful Trick #2

Making Your Eyeshadow Last!

I know that here in the South, on hot days and such...that your eyeshadow can crease...and does so quite often. Ever Wonder how to stop that?

1: Buy some Eye Primer...You can get eye Primer from most Makeup Lines...Some of my favorites...




> Two Face Primer- Shadow Insurance....@ Sephora $17 or @ Ulta $17 (right now(9/09) get $3.50 off any $10 Purchase using code. 28166)




>Urban Decay-Primer Potion...@ Sephora $17-$22 or @ Ulta $17




>Micabella Eye Primer (this one lasts 4ever..but not cheap!! $44.95 Yicks!)



2: Can't afford to Get a Primer? Or just run out? Have no fear, for a quick use, get out your Lip Balm!




>Glide on a little lip balm- the thick waxy kind that comes in a stick...not the gel you get in a jar...put over your lids like a normal primer, and add your eyeshadow....




>I do suggest getting a good eye primer...but I understand if you have to save for it, or you forgot to get some last time you were in town, and now your out!

Hey Y'all,
I've Been thinking, and I know I have a hard time with my own Beauty Budget, and I thought...I bet other's are too...So Over the next few days, I'll be posting different Tricks for saving your wallet, and Helping you In a pinch! One's that Have helped me, and others that I've been hearing about from other people!
Useful Trick #1:
Clean Your Brushes....


If Your anything like me, (and are new to the makeup scene) You may not have known that you are supposed to wash your brushes every week...and use a brush cleaning spray everyday, to cut back on bacteria! So I want to tell you my/woman's world's sercret to doing this on a budget!


Your Everyday cleaning...
right now I use Sephora's Brush spray...just their mini one...it's about $6! Not bad...Clinique has a large bottle for about $13 I think. It doesn't take much for this....

> Spray Directly on Bristles...then Wipe off on a clean/old fluffy towel, and do this till your make up is no longer on there make sure to put all the bristles together....then either hang upside down to dry, or set them on a towel, with the bristles hanging off the end,(this helps them to dry faster, and not send water to the glue end of your brush)


Weekly Cleaning...
There are a couple of ways to do this!

1: Use EVOO(extra virgin olive oil) on a paper towel folded in half 2 times. And rub your brushes into it, you will see the dirt on the towel...once done, rinse with warm water...Then take a sponge, wet it with the warm water, add a squirt of Baby shampoo to the sponge, and swirl your brushes thoroughly (this is to get the oil out of your brushes) wipe off with a fluffy/old towel. then either hang upside down or on the towel until dry.

^This will also soften any of your bristles that happen to be a tad stiff.



2: Get a Face wash (make sure it has nothing extra in it...like anything for acne...) and do the same thing as you would with the baby shampoo, but skipping the oil step. Since the face wash already has the things for removing makeup in it, it will clean your brushes in no time!!! then wipe off, and either hang upside down or hanging slightly off a towel.



Face Wash I use...Clean & Clear's Makeup Removing Cleanser
Here's A List from Sephora of other useful Brush Cleaners!
