ALL GLAMMED UP - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LASH EXTENSIONS/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

Good morning my loves!  I am so excited to share this new post with you.  If you are anything like me, big beautiful lashes are one thing I never leave the house without.  Unfortunately for me this doesn’t come naturally, it requires multiple step by step techniques to make my lashes look big and bold.  Although I’ve experimented with false eyelashes, I am not a huge fan of how they feel on my eyes, and would prefer applying a few layers of mascara instead, but this still can be time-consuming.  And without the right products I never seem to get the results I desire.  Luckily I have discovered Rosalash!   Today I am going to share everything about my lash extension experience with you – why I love them, maintenance, where to go, and more!

ALL NATURAL DIY MAKEUP REMOVER

ALL NATURAL DIY MAKEUP REMOVER/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Good morning my Beauties!!!  Happy Wednesday!  I thought I would share another one of my favorite all natural DIY beauty products.  If you care about natural skin care and healthy glowing skin, then I think this is the perfect product for you to try.  A simple two ingredient recipe that will have you tossing your drugstore version aside.

What’s the most important thing you consider when choosing a makeup remover?

EYESHADOW TO MAKE ANY EYE COLOUR POP

 

When choosing which makeup colours to use there are no rules set in stone, but one thing is for sure not all shades will suit everyone.  Your overall makeup look will look more polished if you take into consideration the colour of your eyes, skin and hair.  In this post we are going to focus all of our attention just on the eyes.  The eyes can tell so much about a person, so play them up and accentuate one of your best features to make them pop.  This can be achieved by simply choosing the right colours.

BEST SHADOWS FOR YOUR EYE COLOUR

MAKEUP REMOVAL ESSENTIALS: 3 SIMPLE STEPS TO BEAUTIFUL SKIN

 

Proper makeup removal is an essential step to keeping your skin healthy. Going to bed with your makeup on will leave your pores clogged, preventing them from naturally balancing the PH of your skin.

You should always be washing your face twice a day. When you cleanse your skin in the am, you are washing away all the toxins that were released while you slept. When you cleanse the skin again in the evening, you are removing all the makeup and impurities that may have accumulated on your skin throughout the day.

3 steps to proper skin care:

  • Cleanse – start by removing all the makeup from your eyes and lips with a gentle makeup remover and cotton pad, then wash your face with a cleanser  best suited to your skin type.
