Makeup Must Have: e.l.f Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!! I just got the Primer yesterday in the mail and it is AMAZING! The Primer has made my skin unbelievably smooth and so soft. If you do not wear any foundation I would still recommend just wearing this clear gel like primer. It seems weightless and works like magic on your face. I use Temptu Airbrushing for my every day makeup and this made it even more flawless. I am head over heels for this primer. I apply it with my sponge and fingers. This primer will not break the bank as it cost me $5.99. As someone who is really “into” makeup – this is the best within a budget price that I have used. So if you are looking for a great primer go get e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer!

DIY Beauty Treatment : pore mask

Of course I found this on pinterest. Where else would I find all of these crazy ideas!

Okay beauties!  We have all used those expensive biore pore strips. I have found a recipe to make your own at home and for dirt cheap! I made one for my entire face!

All you need is 1tbs unflavored gelatin and 2tbs milk. Stir together quickly and microwave for about 10 seconds. Apply this quickly! I used a makeup brush and applied it in my kitchen. Haha anyway,  once you apply wait at least 15 minutes. Peel away the mask and now your pores are clean and your face feels like a baby’s bottom!

A few warnings:
~ don’t apply to eyebrows.
~ it smells horrific
~ it doesn’t feel great when removing mask
~ your face will get red

Makeup Application 101: Makeup Brushes

Every woman needs to do know what makeup brushes are for what. Also you need to wash them after every application. Trust me it makes a huge difference! 

I wash all of my brushes with Dawn Dish Soap, Olive Oil, and water.

I put a few squirts of soap on a plate with a few drops of Olive oil. I swirl my brushes around on the plate and then hold the brush under running warm water until all the soap and makeup is out.  Let them air dry and viola! All is clean!! Having clean brushes helps makeup apply flawlessly and keeps your skin from breaking out.

Here are tips on how to use which brush for applying makeup to your face.

Stay Beautiful!
