    How to Fix a Dried Up MAC Paint Pot

    Unfortunately, my MAC Paint Pot has dried up. The oils in the product separated causing it to lose the creamy consistency. What was once a creamy product turned into a product that seems as if it was basking in the sun, it is stiffer than a well pressed shirt in spray starch. I have more than half product left as I alternate between the paint pot and Ambrosia Eye Fx Primer; therefore, I had to find a way to revive what’s left of the product.

    MISKOS 30 Colors Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow Palette Review

    Glitters are in and you might want to try it. Let me introduce you to Miskos 30 Colors Pressed Glitter Powder Eyeshadow Palette. This palette is love at first sight. The colors are gorgeous, vibrant and have a high-pigmentation. I was skeptical before purchasing with regards to the consistency and whether I will need glitter glue to hold the product together when being applied to the eyes. But to my surprise the colors are densely packed in the round pans most likely they are being pressed together with glue or something similar to hold it in place. A separate glue is not needed to apply the product. However, you might want to consider getting a specific brush that will pick up the glitter or simply use your fingertips to press the glitter on to the eyelids.

    How my Makeup Survived Hurricane Irma Sint Maarten

    It was early Monday morning on the 4th of September when we received the news of an expectant Hurricane Irma coming towards our country Sint Maarten. The government did not yet call a state of emergency and I still had plans of going to class that said day. After contemplating about the weather, I was wondering if I should go to class for that day or just stay home and prepare for the hurricane ahead. Lucky enough I received an email from the school board saying all classes will be canceled and we all should be preparing for the hurricane.

    A curfew was also placed for the following day Tuesday. Everyone was given time to prepare for the natural disaster ahead. Hearing the news, I quickly updated my WhatsApp 24hr status and notified my friends.

    Preparing for Hurricane Irma

    In preparation for Hurricane Irma, I went to the grocery store to pick up a few snacks, tin food etc., I returned home to complete my laundry just to ensure that I have all clean clothes and towels. After filling the water tanks and recharging all electronic devices I placed all important documents in a ziplock double seal bags and store them in a dry place. Then I removed all my makeup from my vanity and placed them in my caboodle, airtight containers and huge garbage bags. I also placed my blogging materials in huge garbage bags and store them away in a closet.

    At this moment, I began to get frustrated. This was my very first Hurricane experience. I started to think I was overreacting but as they say, prevention is better than cure. 

    During my preparation of Hurricane Irma I had 2 things in mind:

          1.      Always prepare for the worse
          2.      Hurricane Irma will not pass through and leave me naked (without my belongings). Even though these things are replaceable I rather know that I had tried saving them rather than not doing anything at all.

    Waiting on Hurricane Irma

    Approximately 9 pm Tuesday night on the 5th of September videos started to circulate throughout Facebook and WhatsApp showing the sea level rising. It was making its way past the Boardwalk unto the main road (keep in mind that the hurricane did not cover our island yet).

    There was an estimated time of Hurricane Irma passing and the curfew was still in place. The environment was feeling warm and inside the house became extremely hot. While waiting up I became drowsy and fell asleep.

    Waking up to the Natural Disaster

    When I woke up it was minutes after 4 I could hear the sound of the wind whistling. I thought I was in a dream. I did not panic but immediately grabbed my phone and checked my WhatsApp messages. With tons of notifications, I was getting updates from my friends near and far wondering how the Hurricane was behaving. I replied to the several messages just before we had a power outage and lost connection to the internet. With shouts of praises, I was giving God thanks that I get to send replies to my friends updating them on the current state of Hurricane Irma since we had lost electricity for 1 week and 3 days. Messages that I received claimed that roofs have flown off houses this is when I became more alert.

    Watching Out Our Windows

    During the passing of Hurricane Irma I could hear the loud sound of the wind moving objects at 185 mph. At this present moment, I was walking from door to door checking to see that everything is still intact. At one point, I thought the door was gonna blow in and the house might flood. Hurricane Irma passed during the early morning so I could see clearly what was happening outside. A lot of trees was down, the entire place was a mess and I was terrified. I prayed for it to stop!

    The After Effect of Hurricane Irma

    Hurricane Irma passed through our beloved country of St. Maarten and left numerous of people homeless. Many with roof and windows destroyed, cars damaged, gas station pumps torn down to pieces, supermarkets and other places destroyed, debris blocked the drainage and streets. My home and my makeup withstand Hurricane Irma. Although I had a bit of mopping to do from water that came in. I felt relief as the storm had stop and my makeup was securely stored in a dry area

    With this natural disaster, we did not experience any flooding in the area that I live. It was pure heavy wind with light-medium showers of rain. The wind was strong! Strong enough to move a 40 ft. container, flip cars to the side and move boats away from the sea.

    In Conclusion

    I am blessed to be alive and I am happy that I live to experience this moment in my adulthood. Even though it is dangerous and considered to be natural; there was nothing that we could have done to prevent Hurricane Irma. I pray for the families that have been affected and that our country Sint Maarten will rebuild better and stronger than it was before.

    How was your experience with Hurricane Irma? How do you prepare for a hurricane?
