Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow Eyebrow Corrector

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on Google+Print this pageEmail this to someone

If you know how to draw then you can use any eyebrow product of your choice. I’ve used from powders to pencils and now what I’m currently using is the gel from Makeup Forever which is the only waterproof eyebrow product that I know and that is why  it is called “Aqua Brow”.

Aqua Brow by Makeup For Ever is a waterproof eyebrow corrector that fills, defines and lengthens brows. Formulated with volatile oil and carnauba wax, its creamy gel texture gives an even, natural result with a long lasting hold. The result remains flawless throughout the day and holds up under all conditions (water, heat, etc).

I’m in love with this product that I keep buying them and just mix the colors to achieve my desired eyebrow color that will match to my hair color.

Tips:

  • For dark hair, go one or two shades lighter than the color of  their head hair color
  • For light  hair, go two shades darker than the color of hair on their head

As of the moment I have colored my hair to dark brown because dark colors are in this fall-winter season. And because I adore so much the very beautiful model Cara Delavine, I copied  Cara ‘s iconic eyebrow (dark and bold eyebrows) and so I decided to use the dark brown color eyebrow gel.

Below Are pictures on how I do my eyebrows using the Makeup For Ever Eyebrow Gel product.

Let’s connect the marks and start filling the eyebrows starting from the end part, second the middle part and lastly the part that is closet to the nose line

Lets start shading. Starting from the ends (outer corners of the eyes) towards the hair in the inner corners of the eyes. Extending over your tear drops.

this is my holy grail eyebrow product and will repurchase it again as soon as I’m finished with my this tube:

Summer Hair Free underarm

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on Google+Print this pageEmail this to someone

Aside from packing up a sunblock and your swimsuit on your beach bag  there’s one important thing you should consider before hitting the beach. Is your underarm hair free?

I’m sure that I am, thanks to the advance laser hair removal machine from Skin House clinic. Now I can’t wait to flaunt my beautiful underarms to the beach.

image

I’m sharing to you ladies the miracle of a laser hair removal:) lets start!

image

After the nurse shaves off the hair, she will put on some cold gel. The gel is similar to those used in ultra sound procedure.  The gel will be applied evenly to protect the skin.

image

During the laser treatment you will feel a slight pinch on some areas, particularly where there are hair roots. But do trust me the pain is tolerable (I’ll give it 2/10 on the pain scale).

imageThe laser will last for about 15 minutes.
image

After the laser, they will remove the gel and apply moisturizer.

image

Now you are hair free and ready to hit the beach.  Please check my previous blog post for an in depth review and explanation of the Diode Laser Underarm Hair removal

Thank you for reading ladies!

Goddess Bronzer | Estee Lauder

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on Google+Print this pageEmail this to someone

I’m sharing with you my holy grail bronzer. For years my love for this bronzer didn’t change. Every summer I always grab this more than any of my other Bronzer. (Pls click here to see my review on other bronzers).

The Estee Lauder Goddess Bronzer collection is available annually during summer time.  Goddess Bronzer is the definition of summer. If you’re not a fan of coconut and sun cream, then you won’t be a fan of Bronze Goddess.

image

With its net weight surely it will take a year or 2 before you will repurchase this an another Estee Lauder goddess bronzer. Only if you will just use this bronzer during the summer time like I do. :)

Why? Well let s just say, Id like to stick with its name as the “Bronze Goddess” of summer :)

Rock tape | Athletic Tape | Muscle Support

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on Google+Print this pageEmail this to someone

It’s not a rock needed to massage and reduce my muscle soreness, but its a ROCK TAPE to ease muscle pain.

So.. What is Rock Tape?

  •  Sticky, hypoallergenic, water resistant adhesive that won’t fall off during competition
  • 180% stretch, helps reduce skin irritation. Also allows fuller range of motion
  • Tighter weave, which enables muscle to more easily snap-back to neutral
  • 97% cotton, 3% Nylon 6/12, low moisture absorption
  • Can be applied to enhance athletic performance using the POWER Taping method (Instructions included in each box)

 

Tried and tested by Athletes

image

How does it work?

It is kinesiology tape and is fantastic for treating common sports injuries like shin splints, plantars and runner’s knee. When applied properly, ROCKTAPE lifts the skin away from the muscle, which promotes blood flow. Faster blood flow means more oxygen and more lymph drainage, which helps remove Lactic Acid.

This is me playing tennis. I play tennis thrice a week . That’s why I always get this upper back pain

image

Let’s look inside the rock tape.

On Bare skin

The physical therapist divided the tape into  half and placed the tape on parts where there’s pain . And use the tape to put pressure on it.

Review:

I find it ok for the first few days.  Felt the tightness and its effectivity on the days that it’s totally dry. It did take me 2 days to not take a shower and just use wet towel to cleanse my body just to feel the relaxation it gives in my sore muscles. 1 week of the rock tape in my upper body and a couple of of showers made the upper part slightly lifted. After a week and a couple more days I decided to remove it.

Pros: It reduces the swelling, pain or stiffness. It made a dramatic difference once it is taped Into your skin. And it comes in a variety of colors to match your personality.

Cons: you need a professional to properly set the tape. Else it wont work as well.

Review:

I decided to get a couple of  lipstick from MAC Toledo collection simply because the colors are absolutely different and specially chosen by a true painter who knows the true meaning of colors plus this collection of lipsticks are not matte but rouge-y matte which made it apply evenly for smooth and they are intensely pigmented and lasted for six hours without being drying
