|My Beauty Secret:||
Not a huge secret, but.. Vitamin E Oil! It does wonders for the entire body. :)
If I'm going natural, 5 minutes (spot concealer, lip balm, and maybe a swipe of brown eyeliner on the tightline). Otherwise anywhere from 15-45 minutes (not including my lion's mane of hair, though..).
|My Horror Story:||
Not makeup but beauty related.. the day of my 5th grade school pictures I was trying to brush my bangs with a round brush. Of course they got tangled and my mom had to CUT them.. as short as they ended up being, in combination with my hair being curly, they were tight ridiculous looking curls at the top of my hairline! Not to mention I hadn't worn earrings in a while and my ear bled trying to put them in, which you can see in the pictures. Did I mention I was also missing a tooth or two at this particular time? Classic photo. >_<
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I've been told I look like Amy Adams more times than I can count.. I only wish I did!
Literally the ONLY product I've ever used that keeps my e/s on. Without it it creases within ten minutes. I hadn't worn eyeshadow in years for that very reason. With it my e/s not only doesn't crease, but stays vibrant-- so much more vibrant than on it's own-- ALL DAY. I've forgotten to remove my eye mu before bed before (awful I know!), and I've woken up the next morning with it still looking perfect. Absolutely my HG eye product!
This oil is seriously a HG item for me. I use it for everything under the sun; as a moisturizer on my face (absorbs quickly and leaves my skin silky soft), as an under-eye treatment, on my legs after shaving (helps eliminate razor burn and keeps skin from drying out), under my arms after using my epilator (helps eliminate that oh-so-fun burning sensation and redness), and on my body after I get too much sun. It honestly stopped a mild burn from peeling, cooled the area so it wasn't painful, and helped it to fade away in a matter of DAY (note the lack of 's').
LOVE LOVE LOVE this gloss! I'm a gloss connoisseur, and this is one of my favorites of all time, if not #1. It's smooth, not sticky at all (so my hair doesn't stick to it, yay!), the smell and taste are more than pleasant, and it's pretty long lasting for a gloss. After a nap, or a bite to eat, or even a light kissing session; it still holds on! It's not at all drying either, keeps my lips nice and moisturized, which is really great since they tend to be dry/chapped. The color is really beautiful, a MLBB enhanced even further. I'm even considering it for my wedding lip product!
