Quick Change In My Skin Care Routine

Published April 5, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I’m just popping in with a quick update to my ever evolving skin care routine.

I noticed, now that I double cleanse my skin, that I have been going through my Bioderma a lot faster  than I use to. So I set out to try and minimize the amount of product I used by using something different to take off my makeup.

I tried makeup remover wipes but they irritate my skin so then I thought i would try using baby wipes to remove my makeup …. this worked better but still I wasn’t happy with the amount of waste I had …. baby wipes are not bio-degradable… so I set out to do some research ….

I came across a few videos of YouTubers that swore by the Face Halo brand. So I jumped on Amazon and purchased a pack of 3 for $30.

It’s softer than a washcloth 

The direction say to wet it with warm water and use it to remove your makeup and then simply wash it with soap in warm water and hang to dry….

This has been working for me so well that I am thinking of purchases a few more.

I also wanted to show you what hubby did for me while I was sleeping yesterday…. He moved all of my sewing stuff into one of our spare rooms and created a sewing room for me!!! He is such a sweet, loving, amazing husband.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay safe out there and remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Quick Beauty Haul

Published March 16, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I just wanted to pop in with a mini beauty haul. I received a few things I purchased from Amazon today and a new eyeshadow base that I purchased earlier this week.

I also have 2 ColourPop orders coming in the mail later this week and an order I placed on Joah Beauty’s website. (Joah Beauty is having a huge buy 1 get 1 half off sale that will last until the 30th of March. I purchased 25 products and only paid $20 including taxes and shipping.)

So let’s jump into this haul….

I purchased this Jamaican Black Castor Oil off Amazon for $9.99 After watching beauty blogger Anna Bankester on her YouTube talking about a similar product that she used to promote the growth of her eyebrows and eye lashes. She has great lashes and her brows are so full that I thought I definitely have to try this tip out. I’m going to start this tonight and will check back in with you every week to see how the performance goes. Basically what she said is that she uses with a disposable spoolie and combs it through her brow hair and lashes everyday. I plan on doing it as part of my night time routine. *** fingers crossed I hope to get great results ***

I purchased this foundation mixing palette and spatula off Amazon for $6.99. I have been using the back of a 3 wick candle lid to mix my foundations and glow drops together. The problem with this is it tends to get messy so I figured I would try an actual palette to see if it’s less messy.

20200316_170327

I purchased 200 disposable mascara spoolies from Amazon for $6.99. I purchased them to use with the Black Castor Oil to try and get my brows and lashes to grow. 

20200316_172507

I have seen this eye shadow base all over YouTube. Everyone seems to like it better than any other lid primer. I have always used Tarte Shape Tape and NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer as my base but then I stumbled onto a YouTube Makeup Artist (who is also a makeup Artist in real life) named Robert Welsh who says that for a better eye shadow application the way to go is definitely using an actual eye shadow primer …. so I set out to research what were some of the best ones to use …. this one seems to be all the rage so I thought I’d give it a try….  It’s called P.Louise Base and it’s sold on her website here for 10 pound sterling which ends up being $12.26 in the US. It comes in 11 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin and 3 shades for fair skin and 4 shades for medium skin. It also is offered in metallic shades and matte vibrant shades as well.

 

The shade I chose is 0.5 it’s the second lightest shade in the line and I thought it would be good to have a lighter than my skin tone shade to make my shadows more vibrant. What I learned from swatching this product is that…. #1 a very little goes and very long way and #2 it’s a very thick consistency. It’s not so thick that it will end up being heavy on the lids, but it’s definitely thicker than the concealers I use to prime my lids now. I am going to try it out tomorrow.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned later this week when I haul my 2 ColourPop orders and my Joah Beauty order.

I pray that all is well with you and that you are safe and protected during this stressful time we are going through.

I hope that you are in good spirits and that you have a great rest of your day/night.

Remember, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Quick Beauty Haul For Week 1 of March

Published March 4, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! I finally got the last 2 items of my most recent beauty purchases and thought I’d share them with you. I hope today you are in good spirits, that you have low pain levels and high energy levels. So let’s take a look at the last 2 things from my last purchase….

20200304_150901

Reusable Bamboo Makeup Remover Pads $12 for 16 pads… I purchased 2 sets off Amazon. These pads are larger than I thought they would be and they are super soft. I decided to stop buying facial cotton because #1 it’s not good for the environment as they do not break down and #2 it is cost effective in the long run…. I pay $13 for 1 165 pack of facial cotton, I paid $24 making each one only $3 and all I have to do is pop them in the washer and dryer to clean them. It is recommended to wash and dry these inside a zippered laundry bag. 

20200304_150848

HonHey Portable Hand Held Rechargeable Fan. $13 on Amazon. I purchased this because I use my bedroom fan to help dry my setting sprays on my face so I don’t end up with splotches of makeup where the setting spray lands. I decided to pick up a hand held one after I saw someone on YouTube use one and thought …. hmmmm now that’s a great idea…. This fan comes fully charged and come with a USB cable to recharge it. 

Well that’s all for now dolls. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day/night and remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
