Best Liquid Foundation Brush

February 28th 2014 00:29
Foundation brushes can be expensive, but you don't always want to skimp on a good brush. Buying a cheap brush means you'll most likely have to buy another brush, so for the price of two you could have gotten a better brush to begin with.

If you're still not sold on which brush to buy, below are a few great options. The Mary Kay brush is less than $10, which is a very appealing price and it's one of the best foundation brushes.

Mary Kay Liquid Foundation Makeup Brush - $8.75; brush is flat and tapered and made of synthetic material; synthetic brushes do not absorb the makeup

Revlon Foundation Brush - $11.99; wide, tri-toned flat brush; made with premium, soft fibers; built to smooth makeup upward

Sigma F80 - Flat Kabuki Brush - $21; dense, flat brush made with synthetic bristles; best used with liquid or cream foundation but can be used with powder; short, dense bristles are built to buffer makeup

Clinique Foundation Brush - $28.25; flat, tapered brush; anti-bacterial technology; can be used with powder, cream or liquid foundation

Mac 187 Duo Fibre Brush - $36.50; large, full circular brush made with natural goat fibers and synthetic material; some say that this brush works better with powder but can be used with cream and liquid; bristles may shed

Cleaning Makeup Brush

Clean the brush with soap and water; do not get water in the metal part of the brush. If water gets in the metal part of the brush, it can get trapped and mold can grow.

Keep the bristles in the same direction when cleaning,

Lay the washed brushes flat on a clean towel and rotate them every few hours until dry.


We all have dark circles underneath our eyes after a long night, or at the end of a rough week. Some of us have freckles or moles on our faces, and others may have blemishes or dark marks.

You can cover them up. It's simple. Now, you'll find that there are different types of makeup tricks to cover up these little "imperfections," as some call them, but below you'll find a pretty simple video.


Increase Life of your Manicure

January 12th 2014 21:39
You don't have to get a new manicure every week. You can save some money and make your manicure last longer.

Clean your nails- Before you get your manicure, clean the nail bed. It will make the polish cling better to your nail and last longer. Use vinegar or rubbing alcohol.

Choose a shiny base- Matte nail polishes are less clingy, whereas glossy nail polish acts like wet glue and sticks to your nails better.

Pick a metallic shade- Shimmery or glittery nail polish lasts longer. The metal pigments create a tough shield. Glittery nail polish can be a pain to remove, but it lasts much longer. If you don't like glitter or don't want to work at removing the color when you're tired of it, choose a darker color. Nail polish with darker pigments last longer than light colors.

Chill your polish- Heat make the polish goopy, but if you chill the polish, it sets better.

Avoid moisture and heat- That means avoid taking a bath/shower for a day. Also put off washing the dishes. The moisture and heat will literally shrink the polish the first day you get your nails done.

Seal your polish daily- Apply a topcoat daily to the edges of your nails.


Take a Stand on Your Dead-End Job

November 29th 2013 00:03
Regardless of what you want to be in life, it doesn't necessarily mean that's what you'll be. Now, there are plenty of women who know they want to be the CEO of the next biggest fashion retail chain and achieve their goals, but there are plenty of others who settle.

I used to be a stay-at-home mom with three kids, but now, I only want to be a mom to my dogs and cats. I still wouldn't mind being a stay-at-home mom to my pets, but the likelihood is slim.

Like most working women, I know I won't ever be the president of some company. All I want is to find a job that I enjoy- a job that makes me feel fulfilled when I go home at night.

Well, the job I just resigned from caused my grief and anxiety than anything, which is why I found a job that better suits the career path I want to be on. And without having the extra strain on my brain, I hope to start working on my book again.

I urge all women that are in a dead-end job that they're not happy in to take a stand and find a new job. Quit the old job and be happy. You won't believe how much relief you will get the day you resign and put in your two-weeks notice. There's nothing they can do to you now. You can drive home clear-eyed and not have to worry about the tears blurring your vision.

If you're in a position you're boxed into where there isn't any room for the career growth you need, take the plunge.

You don't have to watch the clock five days a week, while the hours slowly slip by.

Search the job boards at local companies,, and even your local paper.

You may be surprised what all you'll find.

Check the Linkedin and even Facebook pages for local companies for their job postings. Some companies prefer posting on social networking rather than their own company site.


Soft Fingernails

November 21st 2013 01:16
Our fingenails add a protective layer to our fingers. They aid and enhance our sense of touch. Our nails are also vital to picking up and maneuvering things.

And, you may not realize how important our nails are until they've become soft.

Soft nails could be caused by your health, genetics or a lifestyle habit like wearing artificial nails or frequent contact with chemicals. If you have soft nails, you can strengthen them.

* Eat a varied diet with fresh foods.
* Eat plenty of proteins and whole grains in your diet.
* Take a multi-vitamin daily. Make sure that the vitamin has vitamin A, B and D, as well as biotin (B7) and zinc.
* Consider taking herbs that are thought to strengthen nails (horsetail, nettle or oat straw)
* When doing work around the house and yard, make sure to wear gloves to help prevent your nails from getting soft or softening more.

September 2nd 2013 20:27
If you haven't seen 'Sixteen Candles,' 'The Breakfast Club,' or 'Pretty in Pink,' you're missing out on three of the most popular Molly Ringwald movies.

'Sixteen Candles' came out in 1984. The movie is about a day in the life of Samantha, whose 16th birthday is turning out to be anything but sweet.
