washing your face

Do you wash your face before bed or do you sleep with your makeup on? TSK TSK! Yes, these are some judgmental eyes looking at you as I ask that. But ONLY out of judgmental love! I swear. Because it’s not just makeup you’re leaving on your face… it’s GRIME and OIL! Who wants that soaking into their face for 8 hours? Not me. And not you. I know you don’t, because you’re smart and sweet and you always lend a dollar to your friend at the office for a Diet Coke. See, I know you. And I used to be you. *Cue cheesy music*

It’s true, I used to not wash my face before bed. You couldn’t pay me too. I actually eliminated mascara from my routine because that was the one reason that would make me feel like I HAD to wash my face at night.

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Black – $8.  Bilson tells Lucky Magazine, “I love this mascara from Neutrogena. I put it on in the morning and never have to think about.” This seems to be a very popular mascara, I’d try it for sure.  ... Read More

Jeanie Syfu is a TRESemme celebrity stylist who attended New York Fashion Week and looked at the hair trends for us. She focused on what hair styles to do and how to create the hair style with styling products. I won’t be taking ALL  of her advice, but some is fairly helpful.

You see, there is a bit of a translation you need to do when you get hair advice on TV/magazines. Those people are in a different environment, with lots of money, and they also have to plug their products most of the time. So, I listen to what they say and then translate it to apply for real life  functionality.

She says: Good hair styles include messy buns with controlled ‘front hair’. Use one big simple hair accessory. Try disheveled hair textures, ... Read More
