What to save money on and what to spend it on with beauty products

I know i LOVE to save money,but sometimes you just need to spend a bit more to get a quality product that will work . Today i will tell you what to save on and what to spend on with your beauty products.


1) CLEANSER -you can pretty much buy the cheaper version or store brand,as long as it is the right kind for your skin type(example if you have dry skin go for a cream and if you have oily go for a gel).
The reason why you don't need to spend a lot on this is because you are just washing it off anyway,as long as it does its job and cleanses the skin ,buy whatever is on SALE :)
I like to buy mine from the discount shelf in superstore,i usually find a great one like half price and truthfully cleanser never really expires.
Personally i am using this one -Clean and Clear morning burst cleanser and it cost about $5.00 and it is working great for me -

2) MASCARA- There are TONS of great mascara you can get for less than $10.00!! Do not waste your money on ones that vibrate or are more than $30.00 they are pretty much the same formula as the cheaper ones . Plus since you have to replace them every 3 months do not spend to much.

Personally i love this L;oreal Double extend -i find putting on the white first helps to thicken and lengthen my lashes ! another tip if you MIX two different kinds they work together to get a better result than just one! TRY it put one coat of one brand and another coat another (doesnt matter what )and see how great it looks!


1)Invest in a GOOD anti-aging skin cream usually the ones that cost a bit more do work better as they have more quality ingredients and higher concentrations of them,the super cheap ones are super cheap for a reason they do not work ! Treat yourself to not the most expensive one but not the cheapest either.We all want great looking skin for as long as possible and this is a good way to help maintain.ALWAYS wear it at night too because this is the time our body regenerates and it actually works better . Also a lot of GOOD creams can also be used around the eye area so skip the eye cream and use it for both.
PS-its never to early to start anti-aging,its all about PREVENTING wrinkles,start at about age 25.ITs much easier to PREVENT then deal with it once its there hehehehe

Try this its about $20-30 and you will see good results - 
high concentration of amino-peptide complex and marine proteins to effectively fight signs of aging and restore skin’s elasticity.Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream-

Ok those are just a few things i will post more after i get back from vacation :)
Do you have any products you like to save on that work just as good ??? LET ME KNOW!!

What beauty products to pack when going on vacation???

Hey ladies!! So i booked a fantastic trip to MONTEGO BAY ,JAMAICA! I am super excited and will be leaving in just a few weeks ,so i figured it might be a good idea to figure out what I need to bring with me ,i still want to look nice when i am out on the beach having dinner . So today i will write about the essentials to pack when heading away on a tropical vacation.

*****Also when packing i suggest putting all liquid products in a ZIP LOCK bag so in case they get broken they will not wreck everything in your luggage. Also anything that can shatter like eyeshadow.********

Well we all know the number one thing we better bring is-

1) SUNBLOCK,you can see my past post i did on how safe they are and the ones i recommend-
sun protection
.Also i do prefer the OIL FREE ones and it nice to have one you can spray on so its quick and easy .

2) TINTED MOISTURIZER or a LIGHTWEIGHT FOUNDATION and POWDER- The reason i suggest a tinted moisturizer is it is quick to apply and gives you a natural look and helps to hydrate.

3)BLOTTING PAPERS-they help to absorb oil and shine ,read about the ones i like best here-oil blotting papers

4)A good BLUSH/BRONZER in one like- CARGO beach blush

5)EYESHADOW-ITs probably a good idea to bring just one of your fav palettes the colors you like most.(also a waterproof eyeliner may be a good idea if you like to wear it)

6)WATERPROOF MASCARA! -This is a must so your lashes always look great and you dont have raccoon eyes.

7)BRUSHES -Bring a few key brushes like blush brush,powder brush and a great shadow brush.

8)FACIAL WIPES or BABY WIPES-Are excellent to wipe off your makeup at the end of the night quickly,cause you don't want to waste anytime on your holiday.

9) Leave in CONDITIONER or a good one you can leave in your hair while at the beach that has a sunscreen in it. We tend to forget our hair gets sun too ,so applying one that protects it is a great idea ,or wear a hat when you can.

10)LIP GLOSS OR BALM with SUNSCREEN- Yes our lips can burn so protect them while making them look nice,this is an ESSENTIAL.

So you want your makeup to be light and simple and fun ,and do not OVERPACK ,bring what you will use and need ,thats it.
One more thing i like to bring some aftersun or ALOE in case of a burn and also bug spray for at night cause you never know .

Well now i have my list made and i can start packing soon!!

Can you add any other items you like to take when you vacation ,or have any tips when packing?

Best EYELASH glues :)

Soo when i first started this blog i did a post on good eyelashes to use,but i think also what makes the false eyelashes look good is using the BEST glue!!! I know with the holidays coming and parties you should all rock some hot lashes!!

Why choose a better quality glue? Because then it will be easier to put on,not come off and most important it will not irrate your eyes.

So here are what i think are the  best lash adhesive's -

1) This is the best out there -Duo Eyelash Glue in BLACK-The reason i say pick it in black is because with most eye designs you will have black eyeliner on and this blends flawlessly to achieve a great look!But it also comes in clear,which is a good option for simple looks or if your hand is not to steady.
You can buy this one at MAC and it is also WATERPROOF and is the only brand that attains the medical standard for false eyelash glue.

2) Ardell Waterproof Lash Grip Eyelash Adhesive -You can pick this up at most drug stores and some of the lashes you buy it will come inside the package .This is also WATERPROOF ,it most commonly comes in a clear format .It comes out white but dries as clear which is good.I find this one applies rather nice and dries quickly.I also find that when it is time to take off your lashes this one comes off very easy and does not bother my eyes at all.

 And last but not least a new one i just picked up and have been using is this -
3)Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive-IT cane be picked up at Walmart,it dries clear,is waterproof and latex free and the best thing about it is its MESS FREE! Because it comes with a very thin tipped brush ,all you need to do is brush it on the lashes and your good to go!So for first time users this one is soooo easy to use!!

So i want to see you all looking fantastic this holiday season in your flirty lashes ladies! :)

Ps- DO any of you have any other glues you like to use ???
