A Mere Glimpse

Hey y’all! So recently I flattened out an EOS lip balm which I was pretty impressed with seeing as I’ve never been able to keep track of a lip balm long enough to finish it before. The one I finished is the Medicated Tangerine and it is my absolute favorite! Its got a nice fruity scent, it is exceptionally moisturizing and feels really nice on the lips.

As the balm has gotten lower and lower, I had been contemplating what to do because how could you throw away those cute little eggs? There seemed to be some use I could get out of it so, I started scraping and found that the base is a weird little wheel thing. I would recommend having a small empty container when you do this because there is a surprising amount of balm left over, and there’s no reason to waste it.

Wooden stick, cleaned out EOS, plastic wheel that was removed from the balm, left over balm, cuticle scissors Wooden stick…

Dear Brush, What Is Your Purpose?

The makeup brush set. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

As a makeup brush fanatic, I loooooove makeup brushes of every kind, whether you buy them individually or in a set. However, I tend to be a little nervous around sets. My thoughts revolve around, “Will I use all these brushes? Is it worth my dollar? I really want this brush but what the heck is this one for!? I can’t get that one unless I get this one!”

I ran across a girl on Facebook named Bron who was having a similar problem. She had bought the Real Techniques Starter Kit and just could not accept one of the brushes.

“I have absolutely now use for this RT brush! I know it states it’s an ‘eyeliner brush’ but I believe it is wayyyyy too thick for this. Can anyone suggest other uses? Thanks girls”

It’s Monday. Why Do I Feel So Awesome??

Last night I was looking for content to post for My Pretty Face Place’s social media outlets, and I came across an article about getting more energy throughout the day. My initial thought? “Phhhh! Yeah right! I’ve read these articles before and they just tell you to go to bed earlier. That’s not going to happen for me…”

Here’s What I Did Last Night

Here’s What I Did Last Night

I picked up this little box of color last night on a Target run with my husband. I had been casually thinking about going brunette but never thought I would actually do it!!

Let me backup. When I was 17, I decided I was going to dye my hair and start off brand new as I went into my senior year of high school. I dyed my hair dark brown and I thought it looked pretty good! But when my blonde roots started to grow in, my hair was looking a little funky. At the time, I didn’t like the idea of up keep and so I decided to go back to blonde. On my own. I tried gradually moving back down to blonde by getting lighter brown shades. I ended up with a strange, brownish reddish color that just did not suit me. I was also getting impatient, so I had my friend – a beauty school wannabe – bleach my hair. WHAT WAS I THINKING!? I ended up with some beautiful yellow hair. It was fantastic. I forget exactly how my hair was eventually put back to a more natural and acceptable color, but I know it was an awkward process with some odd hair colors in between.
