Moms you can do make up to!

Moms do you have a busy life? No time to pamper yourself? Well I have a secret for you, if you want time you will find it. And beyond make-up there are several things you can do to pa pamper yourself, so with such a busy life and kids work and the hubby to deal with how IS it possible to still look good and feel refreshed?

1.) Give yourself a night out! If you have older kids or a babysitter take you and your hubby out everyone In awhile. (guys don't forget to treat your lady) and the simplest things kill stress even sending the kids out with friends for the night.

2.) Take a bath. This tip I have found very helpful for myself and have told my mother about and anyone can do this. Okay Sunday night take a bath treat yourself with some bath salts burn a candle put some music on and let your Hubby have the kids for the night, this is your night. I usually use Sunday because it gets you prepared for the upcoming week.

3.) Candles do wonders! While your working or while you are just laying down different sents simulate different things.

 1. Citrus Scent - Energy
Need a pick-me-up? Grab a cup of java and light a citrus candle, citrus scents enhance energy and boost mood; so look for candles with lemon, lime, grapefruit, verbena, or orange scents.
2. Lavender Scent - Relaxation
When it's time to wind down try burning a lavender candle. In studies, lavender has been found to correlate with slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and lower arterial pressure. It has also been found to decrease muscle tension. Other scents that have been found to have relaxing effects are bergamot and sandalwood.
3. Citris, Minty, and Pine Scents - Uplifting, Clean
If you want to create a cheerful, clean environment in your home, choose candles scented with citrus, mint, or pine. Often these scents can be not only uplifting and motivating, but just give that "clean" feel. When you or your guests walk in, these scents will be a fresh breeze to welcome anyone.
4. Jasmine, Gardenia, Sandalwood, and Rose Scents - Romantic
There's romance in the air if you're burning scents such as these. Floral and woody scents give that wistful, romantic feel to a room.
5. Season Enhancing Scents
Delve into the season with your favorite candles scents! Autumn's a great time for burning pumpkin spice candles, as well as other baked good candle scents, as is winter. To create that cozy winter environment, choose cinnamon, apple, berry, and pine candles. Fresh candle scents such as cucumber melon are great for spring, as well as fresh cut grass candles which carry into summer. Nothing says summer like a nice citrus, like a lemonade candle scent drifting through the air.
If you love a certain candle, soap, or body spray - whatever the scent may be - don't do what I too often do, which is save it until that scent runs out! Light it and enjoy, it's sure to affect you in a positive way!

Thanks for reading and have an amazing day!

Eyeliner, Eyeliner, Oh Darling Eyeliner

Dear Wonderful Reader,
In this wonderful world of make-up how do we deal with eyeliner and how do we apply it and WORK IT! Well it is probably the most fundamental tool of eye makeup It has the power just to complete a look. From getting that sharp look to that Beautiful winged cat eye we all use it but do we all know how?

I am going to give you three easy steps on how to get that wonderful eyeliner job.

1.) NEVER EVER EVER! EVER! Pull your eye down to get eyeliner on your waterline it may seem like it is easier and it is but if you practice doing it without pulling your eye down then you will get better at it. What it does is it Causes pre-mature ageing and crows feet by stretching the skin. While also giving you a false impression on what the intensity of the color is.

2.) Begginers use gel, or a felt tip liquid. It is a easy method to work with as someone who never good with liquid eyeliner when I first started I thought I would never get a strait line on the top of my lid and really it is something that take practice but a felt tip gives you more control and it dries faster so you don't have to worry about it transferring to your lower brow. And Personally I Like gel It works better and gives me more options and control in the make up.

3.) Use a light hand. Shaking or a hard hand can lead to unsteady line and lumpy looking eyes which is not attractive on you trust me... also be very careful with wings and unsteady hands because it leads to uneven wings and it leads to thick wings.

Here I have included some links to some useful youtube videos. . .
I really enjoy this one...
Wings can be hard but this video makes it very easy..

Have an amazing day and hope you soon have perfect eyeliner Send me Pictures to include in another blog. Tell me your stories and give me some advice and tips I didnt mention(:

As For todays qoute... "What other people think of me is not my business. What I do is what I do. How people see me doesn’t change what I decide to do. I don’t choose projects so people don’t see me as one thing or another. I choose projects that excite me. I think the problem is that people refuse to understand what drag is outside of their own belief system. ”
