At home lash lift Take Aways!!

Sensative Skin Chit chat-31.png

Hey loves!! This is the follow up to my newest video that you can find HERE. I wanted to talk through what I would have done differently and the day after results. Also I will be updating this post to let you guys know how long it lasts!

  1. I would have cut the pads to make them fit on my eyes better. This why the curl would have been better and more even

  2. I would continue to use the small silicon pad because I feel for my eye shape and how hooded I am them being a longer curl looks better

The DAY AFTER:

The results are still taking effect, which is great. It doesn’t seem like me applying water so quickly after the perm solution really made a difference. I didn’t have to curl my lashes today with a lash curler. I don’t see any damage from the solution on my lashes as well. xo

Full 2018 PM Skincare Routine for 7 nights!!

Hey loves!! Here is my current PM routine for 7 nights. This post goes with my current video which you can find HERE!

Sensative Skin Chit chat-19.png

Monday, Wednesday & Friday: These are in the order I suggest, but I want to make sure you guys understand that it might not be the same for you. Reason being that it depends on the type of serum you are using. Here is a video that will help you know how to layer your serums HERE or HERE

Step 1: Double Cleanse with your oil cleanser and then a regular cleanser

Step 2: Essence (I always use my essence 2-3 layer or skins) or your wipe on AHA/BHA

Step 3: AHA/BHA SERUM or Essence

Step 4: Peptide & Epidermal Growth Factor Serum

Step 5: Hyaluronic acid

Step 6: Hydrating Sheet Mask

Step 7: Moisturizer (or Moisturizer & oil mixed together)

Step 8: Water Pack Sleeping Mask

Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday:

Step 1: Double Cleanse with your oil cleanser and then a regular cleanser

Step 2: Hydrating and skin feeding wash off mask

Step 3: Essence (I always use my essence 2-3 layer or skins)

Retinol——————

Step 4: Peptide & Epidermal Growth Factor Serum

Step 5: Retinol serum

Step 6: Cacay Oil Mixed with moisturizer (or no oil if you choose or just oil, depends on your skin)

Step 7: Sleeping mask is optional - depends on how your skin is feeling

Retin-A ———————

Step 4: Retin-A or similar prescription strength product AFTER YOUR SKIN IS FULL DRY FROM THE ESSENCE

Step 5: Optional Peptide & Epidermal Growth Factor Serum, Hyaluronic acid AFTER YOU HAVE LET YOUR RETIN-A FULLY SINK IN, ABOUT 20-3O MIN

Step 6: Cacay Oil - You can use moisturizer if you really feel you need it, I sometimes do this, but most often I don’t

Sunday:

Free day to either take a break and be really gentle with your skin, so a lot of hydrations and calming products. OR

This video: Depends on how your skin is feeling or how long you have been using products that I have listed above

My Ultimate Favorite Hyaluronic Acid, Firming & Hydrating Serums

Hey loves!! Here is my current serums obsessions which some are hyaluronic acid based, others are for firming and hydrating the skin. All of these have no actives in them so everyone can use them at any part of your AM or PM routine. Hyaluronic Acid is a must have in my book when it comes to anti-aging top 5 ingredients. I also have included my 2 favorite squalene serums so for those of you that can't use HA or live in a climate where it isn't a great product for you, squalene is the perfect substitute xo

Kevin Bacon For "I Love Dick"

I had the pleasure of doing Kevin Bacon for his premier for the new amazon series "I Love Dick" As a groomer it is so important to know the balance between perfecting your clients skin and keeping the realness at the front of the look. I absolutely love using CONTEXT Oil-free Daily moisturizer because it gives the skin hydration and no shine. This is a must have lotion for oily girls and men alike. Then I prepped the eye with CONTEXT Vit C eye cream because it plumps the skin and prepares the eye for light makeup.

Beauty on a Budget

If there's one thing I love, it's a good beauty steal. Sometimes it can be hard to find good quality products that aren't super pricy. My beauty blender is one of my favorite tools to use when applying face makeup, but i've always thought 20 bucks was a little pricy for this little sponge. Nonetheless, I've never complained about it because they're amazing. But, recently I found a sponge that's the same quality, but only $6! The Real Techniques complexion sponge. I was in Ulta and came across it and what intrigued me was the shape of it. It's similar to the beauty blender, but one of the sides is slanted and flat instead of round. Thought I'd give it a try and I haven't stopped using it since! I like the flat side of the sponge because it makes it easy to get right under the eyes when blending out concealer or setting the under eyes with a powder. Don't get me wrong, I still love my beauty blender and use it often, but if you're looking for an alternative for a fraction of the cost, the real techniques sponge is just as great!
