A few tips.

Hi!

I haven’t been feeling so well today. Autumn is here and with it cold and rain, which I hate. i alwas get depressed this tome of the year. So I haven’t had the energy to do any real post. So I thought I’d give you a few tips instead.

1. Don’t Use MakeUp every day.
While many people have it in their routine to put on makeup everyday, it’s good to give your skin a time to breathe sometimes. And take a look inside yourself. Do you really need makeup to go to the store? And if you absolutely must have makeup everyday,settle for just mascara and a lipgloss or lipsick sometimes.

2. Drink a lot of water.
Water helps mousturize your skin from within and gives you a more radiant complesion.
It helps cleanse/flush your body and improves circualation.
It reduces dark cirkles and increases you energy.

Think About
That you should drink at least 1 litre/day.
You can add some lemon or cucumber to make it taste fresh.
If you feel thirsty, drink water instead of coke or other sweet drinks.

3. Clean yor make up brushes
Brushes collects all the dirt on your skin while you put on your make up, cleaning your brushes helps preventing that you put all that old dirt back.

4. Don’t wash your hair every day
A lot of people do this out of habit of showering every morning. Not because their hair is dirty.
Washing your hair dries it out and makes the scalp produce more oils. So if you wash your hair everyday, it gets oily faster. Only wash your hair when it feels oily. If your hair takes 3-4 days to get oily, wash it every 3-4:th day. Pur it up in a bun or just give it a cold water rinse the other showers.

5. Sleep
Sleep 7-8 hours each night. It prevents dark cirkles and makes you look healthier. To little sleep makes you look tired and gloomy.

Well That was what I had today.

Ciao

My make Up Brushes

Here is a post with my make up brushes.

I bough a set with brushes from a swedish page called Eleven. It’s the same page that I bought the Macadamia products from. And I’ve been using these for a while now.

18 brushes in different sizes and uses.

Left to right
1 eyebrow/eyelash brush/comb. Usually I use the comb to separate my eyelashes and comb through my eyebrows.
1 Mascara brush which I use to shape my eyebrows and also sometimes on my lashes.
1 Foam (?) brush. I use this for shading with a cream shadow when I want to straighten my nose or such. I have no idea what this brush is called
2 Angled eyeliner brushes, I use the vrown one for my liquiud eyeliner and the white one for when i use shadows as liner.
1 Small eyeliner brush. I use this for detail work when I feel like doin artistic looks.
1 Concealer brush. I have a triple concealer from Viva La Diva, I’m saving up to buy one from Make Up Store though.
1 Lip Brush. I use it for  lipstick (duh)
1 fan brush. Can honestly say I rarely use this, but when I do, it’s for blush or bronzer.

5 Eyeshadow brushes in different sizes
1 Blending brush.
1 Blush brush. I use this one whit my cream blush since it’s more dense than my other blush brushes, I’ll show them some other day.
2 Powder brushes. I usually use the smaller one for shaping and the biger one for entire face covering.

As I mentioned in the Blush Brush descripion I have more brushes than these. I’ll show them some other day since I didn’t have any pictures on them on my computer and my camera is charging.
