    5 Quick Beauty Fixes To Prevent Monstrous Mishaps

    Picture the scene ladies. You have a hot date / big night out / important interview / first day of your new job and you want to leave the house looking flawless. You pay great and painstaking attention to every facet of your appearance from the tip of every strand of hair right down to the shellac on your toes. You’re dashing around loading your purse with all the essential accouterments, and on your way out you take one last minute glance in the mirror to see…

    Uh oh! Something has slipped through the net. There’s a small but definitely perceptible flaw in your otherwise immaculate appearance. It needs to be corrected before it becomes an embarrassing beauty disaster. Here are the most common beauty mishaps and how to fix them quickly and effortlessly so you won’t be late.

    Creased clothes
    There are few things more frustrating than noticing unsightly creases in your clothes when you’re just about to step out of the door. You don’t have time to steam your clothes or fire up the iron, but fortunately, a faithful friend can be most helpful in your time of need. Simply switch on your hair irons and set them to a medium heat. It’s the perfect way to straighten out those unsightly creases. Good hair irons are an essential tool in any beauty arsenal and you can find various brands ranked at If you don’t already own a pair, you’ve just been given one more reason to invest!

    Over conditioned hair
    Many of us spend a long time making sure our hair is absolutely perfect, but it’s often not until after we’ve dried and styled our hair that we see the greasy results of over conditioning. Leaving your home with less than perfect hair can damage your confidence so give it a blast of dry shampoo for a shot of instant freshness. It will absorb any excess grease while lending your hair body and texture.

    Forehead sheen
    If things have gotten a bit frantic while you’ve been getting everything ready before you go you may catch yourself with a little bit of perspiration on your forehead, peeking through your foundation. An extra dab of primer is the perfect way to quickly perfect the matte texture of your foundation even on hot and humid days.

    Clumpy Lashes
    Nothing can ruin your look like clumpy lashes. They cheapen the effect of your mascara and make your look seem rushed, definitely not the path to making the right impression. This is why you should carry clear mascara with you at all times. Brush out the excess on your lashes, sliding off any buildup on your lashes and buffing them out from there.   

    And finally that most hated of all…

    The surprise pimple

    That pimple you thought you’d slain before you showered? Surprise! It’s back again, meaner and redder than ever just waiting to announce its presence to the world. Not to worry, you can calm the beast with a dab of natural witch hazel. This natural astringent will alleviate the redness and inflammation so you can go about your day with confidence.

    Now that you’ve quickly averted these last minute beauty crises all that remains is for you to get out there and be fabulous!

    Safe Ways to Be Beautiful

    Everybody wants to feel beautiful at some point in their life. Because of this, some people go to extensive and sometimes dangerous lengths to achieve the look that they deem most beautiful. And it is when said lengths are taken when complications can arise that not only hamper the chances of attaining beauty in the present but in the future too. It is for these reasons that you should always take safe routes when it comes to making yourself look beautiful. A few of these safe ways to beautify yourself can be found below.

    Safe ways to beautify your lashes

    Women, especially those in their late teens and early twenties, love making their lashes and eyebrows look as beautiful as can be. And this means they go to great lengths to both manage, control and shape them. One such length that is commonly gone to by women who are seeking to beautify their lashes is to forcefully remove any lash hair they don’t want. But removing it in this way is dangerous as, unlike other hair on the body, eyebrow and lash hair will stop growing if it is subjected to it on a regular basis. So, stop with the plucking, tweezing and other forms of forceful movement. Instead, head on over to the site to find information on just how to grow lashes and eyebrows quickly and naturally. And make sure to lock your tweezer away so that you’re not tempted to use it!

    Safe ways to beautify your bum

    Similarly, women of this day and age have an obsession with making their bum appear to be as beautiful as possible. Generally, this means making it appear to be as voluptuous, curvy and Kim Kardashian-like as can be. And to achieve such a look, generally, implant surgery is sought. But this kind of invasive surgery is not safe, not one bit. It stresses the skin in that area of the body in such a way that it makes it sag unnaturally. And not to mention it costs around $7000! So, in your quest to beautify your bum make sure to avoid surgery altogether and take much safer routes. Once such route is to simply invest in hip and butt padding. Doing so, and wearing it underneath your pants, will make your bum appear to look the way you want it to, without having to subject it too dangerous and invasive surgery.

    Safe ways to beautify skin

    When it comes to beautifying our skin and combating the signs of aging that are wrinkles, generally cosmetic surgery in the form of botox is sought. But there are always alternatives to cosmetic surgery, and these alternatives should always be sought. One way is to simply invest in anti-aging cream. Another way, quite surprisingly, is to change your sleeping habits. Sleeping on your side or front can induce deep wrinkles in your face — so start sleeping on your back!

    As mentioned, everybody wants to feel as if they look beautiful at some point. And when this point arises in your life, make sure you take the safest route possible to attain your beauty. If you don’t, then you will certainly end up regretting it.

    Too Faced Sugar Pop Limited Edition Palette Swatch and Review

    Too Faced Sugar Pop Limited Edition Palette
    The Too Faced Sugar Pop Eye shadow is neatly packaged in a metal tin case container that has macaroons imprinted all over it. The metallic tin case is very compact and cute. It comes along with a mirror and a look book. The How to Glamour Guide (look book) has 3 different eye shadow looks that you can create yourself using the Too Faced Sugar Pop Palette.
    This Too Faced Sugar Pop Limited Edition Palette consist of 9 eye shadow in three different categories and 3 of the larger shades are good for highlighting. The categories included in this palette going horizontally are Sweet and Spicy (top), Sugar Plums (middle) and Cotton Candy  (bottom).
    Too Faced Sugar Pop Eye shadow
    Even though it’s called Sugar Pop the eye shadow does not have a sweet sugary scent as the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette but the packaging and eye shadow surely does look good both on the outside and inside. One thing that I noticed when the lid is flipped it doesn’t stand in an upright position instead the lid flips over way too much unlike the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette that is in an upright position when you open the lid.
    Check the description of each shadow below and a guide on how to use each:
    Rock Candy is a very pale sparkly gold that can be used as a brow highlighter.
    Macaron is a light peachy coral with gold sparkles and a little bit of shimmer.

    Melted Milk Ball is a rich warm toned metallic brown with gold micro glitter. It has a nice texture and pigmentation. Perfect for a smokey eye look.

    For the Sweet and Spicy category listed above:

    1. Sweep Rock Candy from lashes to brow
    2. Blend Macaron onto lid
    3. Line upper lash line with Malted Milk Ball

    Follow these steps to achieve the Sweet and Spicy look.

    Strawberry Ice is a pale pastel lavender with silver shimmer can also be described as a frosty pale pink. Great highlight for the tear duct.

    Sugared Violet is a deep metallic shimmery purple.
    BlackBerry is a matte plum shade. Can be used as a transitioning colour.
    For the Sugar Plums category listed above:
    1. Apply Strawberry Ice from lashes to brow.
         2. Press BlackBerry onto the lid.
         3. Line upper and lower lash line with Sugared Violet.

    Candy Coated
    These are creamy matte, shimmer and glitter shadows in vanilla, chocolate and candy colored hues inspired by French macaroon. The colors are beautiful and I’m glad I got this palette. See swatches below.
    From L-R: Sweet and Spicy (Rock Candy, Macaroon, Malted Milk Ball), Sugar Plums (Strawberry Ice, Sugared Violet, Blackberry), and Candy Coated (Peach Fuzz, Bubblegum, Blue Raspberry) swatched with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

    The colors are beautiful, very creamy and has a matte finish with a bit of shimmer. Best applied with a primer to get the full effect of this eyeshadow palette. It’s super pigmented.

    Get this palette before it’s gone. If you have gotten it already what do you think about it? Is it a hit or miss?

    How to Apply Mascara to Eyelids?

    How to Apply Mascara

    1. If your mascara is over three months, it’s time to consider replacing it. Your mascara should not be older than 3 months old, 6 months the most. Yes! This is where the bacteria starts. If your mascara begins to dry out the day you open it, and by the third month or beyond, the mascara will not apply smoothly, and it may cause excess clumping, and flake/smudge sooner than usual.

    2. Don’t pump the mascara tube. Pumping the brush in and out won’t get more mascara on your wand. Remember, the mascara is mainly at the bottom of the tube, so push the wand slowly down inside the tube, against the side, and rotate around once (like you’re scraping the batter off a cake bowl.) Then take out the wand and apply. Again, pumping the wand will put air INTO the tube, causing it to dry out too soon and bring in all sorts of bacteria.

    3. If you removed old mascara just before you apply new mascara, remember to make sure your lashes are dry and free from oil. Wipe a damp tissue over each eye to make sure all the remover is off, then let them dry in the air for a minute or two. A brush with residue foundation or veil powder on it can be dusted over them lightly to absorb any moisture or oils as well.

    4. Don’t be afraid to mix your mascaras.  When applying two mascaras, check if one is waterproof, then you use that one last!

    5. Curl them lashes!! Even if you have never mastered mascara, learn to master curling your lashes. Some very lucky people have gorgeous lashes, but they are just straight. Find a good eyelash curler, get it as close to the lash line as possible and curl, hold for 5 seconds. If you can be really careful, run the eyelash curler under hot water for a couple of seconds, then curl your lashes. It will work like a curling iron! (Make sure the lashes are dry when you are done.) Don’t forget to change the curling pad on your eyelash curler every three months for hygiene and curling performance purposes. They do wear down and may cause damage to your lashes.

    6. Don’t brush your lashes… get jiggy with them! Merely brushing your lashes from base to tip can cause clumps no matter what type of brush or mascara you are using. If you put the brush at the base of your lashes then zig-zag up to the tips, it will not only reduce clumping, but it will also help to coat and separate each lash.

    7. If you can, bend your brush when you take it out of the tube. This is a great professional makeup artists’ trick. Applying your mascara with a brush at a right angle will, naturally cover more of your lashes at one time, making them look their fullest. It will also save your hands and wrists from any unnatural positions that make it difficult to apply. If you do bend your brush, you should be able to bend it back without much hassle when you put it into the tube.

    8. DON’T BLINK! Let your coat(s) of mascara dry before you blink. Once your lashes are completely dry, give them one good blink to make sure everything stays where it should. If you get any residue, remove with a dampened Q-tip and give it another minute.

    9. For longer lashes don’t be scared to try a product that will add length and volume to your eye lash. 

    Dramatic eyes don’t have to be just for special occasions. You can have killer lashes any day of the week. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist (although some still say it does) to apply mascara. When you are practicing, don’t rush, take your time, and try different techniques. Before you know it, you’ll be in the Beauty Olympics…. the Mascara-thon!
