When Jewelry Kills (An Outfit)

We all have that bomb ass dress that makes us look good from every angle. Heck, it makes us look better with it on than with it off. You hear me? So why in the hell do you have to kill you outfit with some awful jewelry? When jewelry really kills an outfit, you will surely know it. You dress will say, “I am not going out with her [jewelry].” Yes there are some outfits that call for diamonds honey, but that does not mean you have to showcase the whole jewelry box. Here are some examples on when jewelry kills…an outfit.     Example 1: Funeral – All you need is a black outfit. No need for the bling because by the deceased you will not be seen. A simple pearl necklace will do the trick. Example 2: Wedding – Unless you are a celebrity or a rich ass bitch, keep your jewelry to a minimum. A simple silver chain and nice diamond earrings will do. You are getting a wedding ring by the way. Example 3: Red Carpet Events – Celebrities are known to showcase expensive jewelry on the red carpet. There are some cases when said jewelry ruins a great dress. For example, Cara Delevingne is the picture below. Example 4: Party – Unless you are the birthday girl then do not wear on flashy jewelry. You should know if you steal the spotlight, you will get cut, hence the jewelry ruining your outfit. Example 5: Subway – Not the restaurant. Jewelry does kill an outfit in the subway, and it also kills the owner in some cases when the local thugs steal it from you. Fix this problem by clutching your pearls in your bag before you go underground. Then before you arrive to the place, put them on. Example 6: School Play – Wearing on eye catching jewelry to a school play will kill your outfit within seconds. Why? The other moms will be so jealous and not even care about your damn dress. Just show up and support your child. No need for jewelry unless you are going out with the principal afterwards.   Example 7: Length – Wearing on a necklace can make or break an outfit simply depending on how long it is. Wear short necklace with dresses that show cleavage. Long necklaces are great to use with maxi dresses. Chokers are for the young. Example 8: Mixing Colors – Never mix silver and gold together. The last thing you want ruining your silky red body hugging dress is a gold bangle and silver necklace. So next time you plan on...

Get REALLY Big Eyes with Only Makeup Tips

Now that the winter has come to freeze up all of your hotness, it is time to fool everyone that you have not been sleeping in. We all get those bags under our eyes that we cannot check as luggage unfortunately. Our eyes become so small and tired looking from lack of sleep or just sleeping too much. During the holiday season, the last thing you want to do is get plastic surgery to enlarge your eyes. Does that even exist? If you want to get the “bigger eyes but still know that you are tired” look then follow the tips to achieve the look. Tip 1: Trim those eyebrows. You know…the furry things above the eyes. Trim them but not too thin. By doing this it will open the eye area more and make them the focus instead of the caterpillars (brows). Tip 2: Do not outline your entire eye with eyeliner. It will make it look smaller than what it really is. Tip 3: Use a cream white or beige colored eye shadow for the inner corner of the eye. It brightens up the eye making it look bigger. Tip 4: If you extend the eyeliner a little bit outside the corner of your eye, it will make your eyes seem wider and larger, but in a good way. It will make your eyes look uneven if done wrong. Tip 5: Puffy eyes can make your eyes seem smaller. Get more sleep, or use teabags on them to get rid of the puffiness. Tip 6: Curling your lashes very big can make the eye look bigger than what it really appears to be. Embrace your fake lashes and curl them. Tip 7: Follow the crease and you will be pleased. By your big eyes I mean. The other way might work too. Anyway, follow the crease of your eye to maximize the area. It will enlarge your eye. Tip 8: Stick to light colors. Use two or more colors in the same hue line to give your eyes a pop of color. Try not to go dark because it will make your eyes smaller. Tip 9: Go bold with your lips. Forget about making the eyes shine with makeup. Leave them bare and go with a bold red lip. It will surely make your eyes look big, in a good way. Tip 10: Blue is for you. Use blue eyeliner to make your eyes look bigger and whiter. Leave the black eyeliner behind. Hopefully by following these tips you can bat your big eyes and catch yourself a lovely person. Also make sure that you get enough...

Why Sleeping With Makeup Is Bad For You

A lot of us girls sometime feel the need to just sleep with our makeup on after a long day at work, or in my case, a long night out. No harm can come from that, right? I mean it is just makeup. Those were the exact things I said to myself until I found out what sleeping with my makeup can do to my face. It is the one boyfriend you want to wash off before you go to sleep at night. Start cleaning off last night’s makeup while you learn. Get the cleansing wipes out. Not everyone can be a sleeping beauty and not wake up without clogged pores. Here are the reasons why: Clogging: At night your makeup is clogging pores. Your pores allow your skin to sweat and release Sebum (no not the monster from Lord of the Rings). Sebum is a lubricant that helps cleanse and moisturize your skin at night. If the makeup is not cleansed off it builds up and in the morning you can say hello to pimples or worse…acne. Pink Eye: There is a difference when it comes to painting on a pink eye, and having pink eye. Remove makeup from the eyes to avoid styes.  If makeup is left in the eyelids it can lead to oil gland build up and mess with your hair follicles giving you eye infections. You want a cute pink eye; not an ugly one. Flakes: I am not talking about snowflakes. Leaving eyeliner on while you sleep is some flaky business. It will harden and when you remover it you will also remove your precious lashes in the process. You can also get your eye irritated with any mascara residue you might have wiped into your eye. Blackheads: Leaving your lipstick on can lead to getting pesky blackheads on your lips. Not the 14 hour long lasting lip shade you were going for right? It clogs the pores on your lips. Plus you might even eat you lipstick while you sleep. Not an appetizing look. Oh Zits: Makeup if not cleansed off at night will make its bed with all the dirt, sweat, and dead skin your face has. Unfortunately, that will only procreate many zit babies on your face. Why? The pores cannot breathe. They are being clogged. Stretch: Makeup can get clog in the pores and stretch them out. Why is that bad? The skin collagen will not go back to its original size so easily. No amount of diet can put that pore back to size zero. Oh No-Zone: Oil and makeup do not mix. The especially do not mix...

Frizz Be Gone Naturally

Frizz Be Gone Naturally

Do not be the tortoise. Be the hare everyone is talking about…in a good way. The last thing anyone wants when they wake up in the morning is to find out they have a bird nest on their head. By “bird nest” I mean your frizzy hair. Lack of moisture and protein are the main causes for frizzy hair. So is that bad hair perm you tried at home with your friends. Smooth, run-you-fingers-through your hair days are now here for you. My #1 rule: GET RID OF YOUR BLOW DRYER! Your hair is already dried up, so by adding more heat, all you are doing is frizzing it up more. Do not F it up. There are two ways (in my book) that you can go about taming that forest center piece on your head: naturally or get your hair cut professionally. Yes, there is a third way, but I do not have money for that, and my wish list has other stuff. Natural Treatments: Coconut Oil is your hair’s new best friend.  It is hydrating and locks in moisture. It will help bring the bounce back into your luscious locks (once the frizz is gone of course).  Purchase everything for hair with coconut oil: shampoo, conditioner, etc. Your hair is going to smell good and be gone of the frizz in no time. Shampoo, rinse, leave conditioner on for three minutes, rinse. Wrap your favorite towel around your hair and let it dry for 8 minutes. (This keeps the moisture in the locks longer.) Now get your fine-tooth comb and add some coconut oil to your hair evenly and comb it through. (You might want to take out any knots before this step. I learned the hard way.) Let it air dry. Do this every other day and you will see less frizzy hair in not time. An egg does a body of hair good. Crack an egg open…not on your head. Whisk it in a bowl with lukewarm water. Massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for 3 minutes. Rinse it out with no shampoo. Why? It will bring some shine to your frizzy hair and help prolong nourishment. Apply conditioner afterwards. Plus you can tell everyone you had an egg for breakfast. Olive Oil is not oil for cooking.  Tame the beast by doing treatment once a week. Heat up some olive oil, not too hot, at least for two or three minutes. Massage it into your scalp and let it sit for at least 25 minutes. It locks in the moisture. Use the excess oil on your hands as moisturizer. (No waste.) Rinse it...
