Urban Decay 24./7 Glide-On Eye Pencils

I always wanted to try their eyeliners because I’ve heard such amazing things about them. But I could never get over the fact that they’re $19 for one pencil when I normally buy NYX eyeliners. I decided I needed to just get it over it and buy one, so I got Pervision. It’s like the blackest black. I fell in love with it! They are so pigmented and last forever. They have such a good staying power. Normally when I put eyeliner on my waterline it will somehow disappear within an hour, but not these liners. They stay on forever! I got a pack that had two small sizes of Zero and one other color. I loved loved loved them! Then for Christmas my mom got me the smokey eye pencil set. I love them! They are so easy. My favorite thing is that you can wear them with a natural eye, a smokey eye, or even just by them self. When I’m running late to work or school I can just add a little eyeliner instead of not doing any eye makeup. They are incredible. I love them so much and don’t think I could ever live without them. I am going to get a few more because they have so many good and pretty colors.

DIY Mask for Acne

I love doing those little DIY masks that you read in magazines and see pictures of on Pinterest. My all time favorite one is a mixture of baking soda and lemon juice. Whenever my skin is either breaking out, in desperate need of exfoliation or just feels gross I use this mask. I make sure I get all of my caked on make up off with a make up removing wipe, then wash it with my cleanser and clarisonic to make sure it’s super clean. I get a small little bowl, and pour in an equal amount of baking soda and lemon juice. I mix it up then apply it with a brush. I leave it on until it dries. Then I make sure I take all of it off with water. I always apply a serum and heavy moisturizer after. The next day my face is a lot clearer and just looks healthy. I typically do this at night so then I can just go to bed after I’m done.

Hair Masks

My hair always needs extra TLC. It is always getting straightened, curled, teased, put in a messy bun, or a tight ponytail or bun. And on top of that I’m one of those people who washes their hair every single day. As you can tell, I do not take the best care of my hair. Whenever I realize that my hair is looking not so hot I do a deep conditioning treatment. I have three favorite hair masks. I will put grape seed oil all over my dry scalp and hair, then blast it with a blow dryer on a medium heat and put in a towel. I’ll leave it in at least 30 minutes and sometimes over night. I’ll always wash it out and condition it. Then my hair feel so soft , healthy, and just happy. Another hair mask I love is Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle. I am in love with this! It makes my hair feel like the best feeling ever. Whenever I have time for a long shower or bath I just slather it all over my hair and scalp. I’ll leave it in at least 3 minutes, well more like 10 or 15. Then I’ll rinse it out and wash and condition my hair like normal. Sometimes if my ends are looking a little fried from using too much heat on it I will wash, condition, then just add the Aussie Deep Conditioner to my ends for a few minutes. It is my favorite hair product that I’ve ever tried.
