Pink-neutral makeup look 

So I drew some eyes and put the makeup look on them ( yes I used real makeup in my sketchbook ), because I have the flu and my eyes are puffy. I promise that the next makeup look that I do will be seen on me xxx
Hey guys 

So today I’m going to share a simple pink-brown makeup look {as seen in the drawing above}

Tools & products:

Beauty Treats essential makeup palette

The colours used (1 & 3 in the crease) (2 &3 used on the lid)

MAC black tied velvet eyeshadow( used as liner)

Method: 

  1. I use my primer or concealer to prime my eyelids
  2. I mix number 1 & 3 from my palette and put this in my crease ( occasionally add a warmer brown or gold ) 
  3. Use my concealer on my lids tho create the “cut crease” look. 
  4. Mix colours 2 & 3 and put this on my lid ( if I want a more pink look I mix colour 1 in sometimes I add a golden colour) 
  5. Liner liner liner 
  6. Done.

      Green Tea Exfoliator 

      Hey guys!!

      I’m constantly in search of the perfect exfoliator, I could never find one that worked for me. One day while I was scrolling through Pinterest {my Pinterest is tagged in the sidebar} I came across this fabulous green tea exfoliator. I’ve only used it for about 2 months and I’m already in love with it, I’ve tweeked the recipe to make it my own, so here it is… 

      Ingredients

      * 1 TB dried green tea leaves (2-4 tea bags, depending on size of tea bag)

      * 1 cup white or brown sugar (the sugar should be soft, not large granules)

      * 1/2 cup olive oil (100% olive oil, not an oil “blend”)

      * 2 TB raw honey

      * (optional) skin-friendly essential oil 

      Instructions

      1. In a medium-size bowl, combine all the ingredients. Store the exfoliator in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place (the linen closet or medicine cabinet).


      To Use: Apply a tablespoon of exfoliator at a time to your hands. Gently massage the skin (face and/or body) with the exfoliator for 30 seconds. Rinse the exfoliator from the skin with water and a washcloth.

      This exfoliator works wonders, it’s definitely one of my best Pinterest finds. I hope that some of you try it and share your opinions about it with me, also feel free to share your favourite exfoliators with me xox Suraya
