Just found Revlon lip butters. Score! And in Red Velvet!
I only got four because I ran to Ulta earlier, but on a whim my boyfriend and I stopped at a Walgreens and they had every single color I wanted! :D
To show people a better way to get that mousse curl thing without it looking like straight up crunchy/wet/gel nasty all day… But I can’t find my card reader and my dslr is a little older so it only uses cf cards. I’ll find it soon and post it :)
So I just did another cinnamon treatment on my hair. And it is so freaking soft right now. I don’t even think it raised the color a full level though, one being the most. But I didn’t take a before picture like I should have. It’s definitely got more of a red tint to it again (my hair just takes on red like no one’s business, it craves red hair dye :D). I really like going this long without dying it because of shimmer lights and cinnamon. But this time I tried a homemade cinnamon oil instead of ground cinnamon. Because I had ground cinnamon in my hair for two weeks last time. It’s so freaking hard to wash out!
But to make the cinnamon oil you just heat up some ground cinnamon and olive oil on the stove (when the kitchen smells like cinnamon, that’s when you know it’s good) and then strain it into a dark colored jar.
Then to put it on your hair mix some of it with enough conditioner to cover your hair from root to tip. I eyeballed (sorry!) but I used about half of the cinnamon oil I had. It covered the conditioner in a layer of the oil before it was mixed. And then I added about one teaspoon of ground cinnamon into the mix, applied to my hair and chilled for about three hours.
Now it’s washed off and my hair is lighter, has some cinnamon-y red highlight kinda things, and feels amazing. Did I mention that my hair smells amazing?
Cinnamon naturally has a high peroxide level, along with honey. You could mix the two (I’ve never used honey on anything other than my face because I didn’t want to put up with the residue) but honey has a higher level of peroxide. If you want lighter hair but you’re already blonde or want cooler toned hair, STICK WITH HONEY. Cinnamon will give you a red tint, which is why it helps upkeep my hair dye. Although I’ve never used honey, I can tell you that it does have a higher peroxide so it should work faster. Just be wary of heat and natural peroxides, because it will mess it up or cause it to not work at all.
And keep in mind it’s a natural hair treatment, it will take a few times (and a few hours) for it to show! Most people put a plastic bag around their hair and sleep with it. Whatever you do, feel free to do more research and tell me about your experience!
Just kidding, first face chart done. Don’t mind that blueish spot, I accidentally got eyeliner there. It’s a lot less noticeable in person.
I. Hate. Eyelashes. And I left them off of the left eye so I could still see the liner if I wanted to do the look. I’m about to write in all of the products on the side too. Only two of them were mac so I’m hoping I don’t look too fangirlish :P
But I’m proud for this to be the first one. (Based off of a look I did on the cruise.)
I SWEAR I was literally writing out tips in my Honors Biology class while I was taking notes. And I have to do a few extra things, a little research, a little testing and then they will be rolling on in.
And I’ve decided I’ll start doing tutorials and pictures of myself AFTER SEPTEMBER 27th because of a major insecurity will be getting fixed that day (I’ma have straight teeth without train tracks holla) and I’d feel more comfortable. I feel more confident already just thinking I’m going in for my first appointment to get them taken off on Monday :)
So I really appreciate your patience and I swear you should have at least four tips (blush centered) by Monday.
If you notice that things like Proactive and Nature’s Cure don’t work for you, it might be because they are benzyol peroxide based. Try something with Salicylic Acid.
You could always try something natural, like Camellia Oil (which has basically made my acne vanish and has made my scars a little less noticeable, although I don’t think it’s really renown for getting rid of acne, but hey) or the Lemon Facial Wash from mountainroseherbs.com. Tea tree oil is said to be very good for the skin as well and calmed mine down a bit when I used it.
Know your skin type and find things that work for you. Don’t be afraid to try new products if the old ones aren’t working and pay attention the active ingredients to try to tailor your skin care to your own skin.
With stuff that I already had laying around. Like what yo.
I’m working right now on fixing the organization and I’ll show you what I come up with but I’d love it if someone else could either reply to this or put it in an ask or submission with ideas about storage. :)
Bobbi Brown and Mac, just a little bit though :)
