Green Tea Eye Treatment

We recently heard of a trick to help reduce eye puffyness and dark circles and we are dying to test it out!  This fabulous tip requires you to make two green tea bags using hot water just as you normally would however, once the tea bags are done, wring them out to release the majority of the moisture without completely drying out the bag.  Once you have done this, let the bags sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to cool off.  You want to make sure you give the tea bags enough time to fully cool so that you do not burn your skin but at the same time, you do not want to let them dry out because it will reduce their overall effectiveness therefore, use your best judgement.  After cooling the tea bags to an appropriate temperature, lay back, close your eyes and place a tea bag on each of your eyelids, making sure to also cover the skin just under your eyes.  Let the bags sit for about 10 minutes while you relax and enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet.  A mixtures of the natural ingredients contained in the green tea bag and the caffeine help to reduce the eye puffyness you may have after a sleepless night.  Try it out!

We wanted to look up different ways to get big beautiful lashes without having to buy fake eye-lashes for every occasion. There are many different mascara's out there that get the job done, but what we never thought of would be to combine the best mascara's to get a big beautiful finish. After doing some research we found this combination of the these really good mascara's to be the best. First you are going to want to use Maybelline's Falsies Volume expresses at the base of your lashes and wiggle it around. Next you are going to want to apply Covergirl Lash Blast Volume on the back side of your lashes for lengh and lastly you are going to apply Maybelline Great Lash on the outer tips and on your lower lashes for definition. The initial investment of these three lashes will cost around $20.00 but its better than having to buy fake eye-lashes and worrying about wether they are on right. Give yourself the best look for the best buck!

Brush Baths

Many women forget how important it is to clean your make up brushes on a fairly regular basis.  This can help eliminate skin irritation,  prevent acne breakouts and also improve the overall look of your face complexion when using blushes or bronzers.  Most don't realize how dirty their brushes get, and also don't know how to go about cleaning their brushes.  Luckily, we have a quick tip for you!  Simply mix 1 cup of warm water, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of dish soap into a bow and mix well.  Once you have this mixture, carefully rinse your brushes making sure you don't pull too hard on the bristles while you reshape the brush back into its original form.  Gently pat down the brushes to get the liquid out of the bristles and then leave sitting out overnight for the rest to dry.  Once your brushes are dried you are good to go!
