Eye cream, you scream, we all scream for Eye Cream

Stressed out? Losing sleep? The delicate skin around your eyes is the first to show it.  Here’s how to hold back the damage.

Eye CreamHow Daily Life Takes Its Toll

AGING
The skin under your yes is thin and contains few oil glands, making it incredibly vulnerable to crow’s feet, wrinkles and expression lines (a result of all the blinking, squinting, and smiling you do).  Hormonal changes can also cause eyes to appear slightly sunken.

STRESS AND FATIGUE
Skipping those precious eight hours of sleep can lead to dark circles, puffiness, and dullness¬ further emphasizing fine lines around the eyes.  Plus, constant anxiety upsets the body’s chemical balance.

SENSITIVITIES
The delicate eye area is extremely reactive.  Allergies, seasonal colds, dry heat, and even how much salt you ate the night before can make them red, puffy, teary, and itchy.

SUN DAMAGE

Don’t forget to protect from the sun’s rays (UV damage contributes to fine lines).  Protect the sensitive eye area with SPF-enhanced cream that won’t cause irritation if it seeps into open eyes.

Killer Lashes for Less!!

At my wedding this past October, I wanted my make up to look perfect! I played around with the idea of getting false eyelashes applied professionally, but I was worried about them falling off during the ceremony in an embarassing moment. The morning of the big day, I talked to the make up artist and she assured me the lashes would stay on all day, so I moved forward with getting them applied.

It was a great decision on my part! The lashes looked flawless and I was amazed at the difference it made to the appearance of my eyes. I actually became slightly obsessesed..LOL. I washed my face SO carefully the next day so my lashes would remain intact and THEY DID! I didn’t even wear make up the entire next day, but the lashes gave the illusion that I was wearing make up. Here is a pic of me in August with just eyeshadow, mascara and my natural lashes . The picture on the right is from October with NO make up (but more tan) and false lashes.

When my false lashes finally came off after 5 days, I already couldn’t wait to the next time I could get them applied. I got the lashes applied for $30 at Mario Tricoci Salon for my wedding, and I realized I could not afford to get them done weekly or even once a month. I decided to do some research on my own. I was shopping at Target and Continue reading

Ebay Buyers BEWARE!!!

macIf you have read my previous Crease No More post, you would know I am on a mission to revamp my makeup collection. And one of the brands I want to invest in is MAC. This is one of the best cosmetic brands used by makeup artists and if you have anything MAC you would know why.

maclipstickglossFor example I absolutely love their Lipglass. I’ve had a few here and there over the years, and while trying other brands, I’ve always returned to using MAC. Not only are the colors fabulous, the gloss stays on forever! I recently just purchased the Viva Glam Lipglass, with the Angel Lipstick at the MAC store along with the Paint Pot. I apply the lipstick first, and finish off with the gloss. The combination gives me the perfect tint that I love.

So being the shopper-on-a-budget that I am, I decided to check out Ebay for additional cosmetic necessities, such as brushes and eye shadows. I’m a confident Ebay shopper, I have purchased and sold several things and have never had a problem in the 6 years I’ve been an “ebayer”. I always check out a seller’s feedback, and only purchase from people who have great feedback.
