LOVE the NEW BOBBI BROWN RAW SUGAR Collection…. It is only around for a limited time and already sold out in some stores…..THIS IS A SUMMER MUST HAVE
The Ten shimmering shades for eyes in beachy bronzes and warm sugar tones, are PERFECT for the SUMMER GLOW!! This limited edition palette leaves lids with a soft wash of pearlescent color. This Pallette is so different from her others because it gives a toasted-brown, shimmering shades of raw sugar, and this palette captures the look of sandy shores and beach bronze beauty.
LOVE BOBBI BROWN'S MOTTO
"A strong brow, bedroom eyes, a bump on the nose," says Bobbi. "It's not about looking perfect. It's about looking and feeling like yourself, only prettier and more confident."
LOVE These NEW ESSIE 2014 NAIL COLOR…
The essie 2014 neon collection celebrates stylish girls around the world struck by fashion fever.
Why sit in the HOT Sun for hours or Why bake in a Self Tanning Machine for days when you can Self Tan in 1 hour. Self Tanning is the safest way to tan and it leaves the UV rays out of the equation. The two most common chemicals in self tanners are dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and Erythrulose, both of which work by reacting with the amino acids on the skin surface. If you don't want streaks, orange hands, dark creases…Following these steps will help you.
1. Set aside enough time to apply self tanner.
2. Take a shower or bath and exfoliate your skin.
4. Massage lotion into trouble areas like knees, elbows, feet and hands.
5. You are Ready to apply. If you don't want to risk getting orange hands, put on a pair of latex gloves. Spread the tanner over your skin in circular motions, making sure not to miss any spots. If you're not using gloves, don't spend too much time rubbing in the tanner because your hands will get too much of it. Use a timer and make sure you wash your hands every five minutes, scrubbing under and around the nails.
6. After you're done with the tanner, apply mosterizing lotion to the tops of your feet, your ankle, your feet, and toes. This will help prevent those spots from getting too dark.
7. At last, wait 8 hours before showering or bathing again. If you feel sticky, apply baby powder
HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE SELF TANNERS
