When I first got a glimpse of Tarte Cosmetics‘ newest palette, Tartelette($44), I knew I had to have it. I have tons of neutral matte eyeshadow palettes but something about this one spoke to me.
Tarte’s newest palette features 12 exclusive all-matte eyeshadows infused with their signature Amazonian clay. Each eyeshadow is named to inspire, celebrate and empower women (I think the eyeshadow names are what spoke to me). The palette also comes with a step-by-step guide for creating a daytime and a nighttime look using the shadows. I actually wish Tarte included a step-by-step guide for four looks instead of two. I don’t think their daytime guide was very practical, most women are not going to wear a plum eye makeup look with purple liner during the day.
There is nothing more frustrating than trying to get sweat stains and smell out from clothing. After realizing that no matter how many times I put certain shirts or gym clothing in the wash, the smell of perspiration still lingered.
Since no commercial detergent was working, I decided to look for answers and see if there was some natural way to get rid of the smell. Vinegar and baking soda are the ultimate all-purpose cleaner when combined, so I decided to give the power combo a try on my clothing.
While baking soda helps combat grease and body oils while neutralizing sweaty odors, the vinegar kills off any bacteria lingering in your clothes. Together, they will leave your clothes looking clean and smelling fresh.
There are several ways of using this power duo on your clothing, here are my three fool-proof ways.
Hi, my name is Vicky and I love drugstore dupes. Nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a drugstore dupe for a high-end product. My theory is that, why would I spend $20 on a product, when I can spend $2 on something that works just as well.
I love my Beauty Blenders, they are truly a holy grail beauty product that is worth every penny but spending $20 every few months for a sponge cleaner is just ridiculous.
This theory led me to find a great Beauty Blender cleaner dupe, Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash which I believe works just as well as the original Beauty Blender cleanser. You can clearly see how well the baby wash works in the photo above, pictured on the left is one of my dirty sponges and pictured on the right is a newly cleaned sponge.
You shouldn’t have to spend a fortune to clean your sponges, baby wash and baby shampoos (great for your makeup brushes) are gentle enough for cleaning your makeup tools without all the harsh chemicals.
Hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you tried Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash on your Beauty Blender sponges in comments below!
Award season kicked off in high gear last night with the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.
Some of the biggest names in TV and film hit the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. From Jennifer Aniston, Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon to Amal Clooney, who made her red carpet debut alongside her husband, George.
There were many trends on the carpet last night, we saw lots of shimmer and sparkle, vivid red and yellow colours as well lots of skin. What kind of award show would it be without some skin baring?
I am counting down some of my favourite looks from the evening. See who made my favourite red carpet looks list!
Tell me, what was your favourite look of the night? Sound off in comments!
Amal Clooney made her red carpet debut wearing a black one-shoulder Dior dress with a statement train. Amal complimented her dress with white gloves. Very rare do we see women wear gloves on the red carpet, I thought it was elegant and different.
Chrissy Teigen wowed me in this Zuhair Murad beaded gown. The color looked gorgeous on her and I loved the high pony tail.
Dakota Johnson sparkled in a strapless Chanel dress. I didn’t know what to expect from the actress, but she definitely didn’t disappoint.
Diane Kruger went for an Emilia Wickstead gown. I absolutely loved the color of this dress.
One of my favourite looks of the night, Emma Stone nailed it in a Lanvin jumpsuit. I love the sparkly bodice and the big bow in the back. I feel like only Emma could pull off such a look on the red carpet.
Greer Grammer looked angelic and perfect in a blush pink Lorena Sarbu gown with gold embellishments.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum came out to support her husband Channing and she couldn’t look more delightful doing it. Jenna wore a beautiful strapless Carolina Herrera gown. The pale yellow looked exquisite on her.
Jennifer Aniston wore a black Saint Laurent number. What I loved most about her look is that she wore her hair up.
Jessica Chastain looked like a sexy siren wearing an Atelier Versace gown. I love how the dress showed off her curves. Her hair and makeup was on point as well.
Julianne Moore was definitely my top look of the night. She wore a shimmering custom-made Givenchy gown. I love the sparkles and feathers. The whole look was effortless.
Kate Beckinsale looked gorgeous wearing an Elie Saab dress. The sparkly bodice added glamour to her look.
Kate Hudson…do I really have to explain why I loved this look, just look at that physique! Kate turned heads wearing a plunging Atelier Versace gown and Forevermark jewels.
Lupita Nyong’o definitely wins for best use of color. The purple Giambattista Valli dress looks divine on her.
Reese Witherspoon always looks chic and elegant on the red carpet. She nailed it in a CalvinKlein strapless dress.
Sienna Miller looked so lovely in this Miu Miu dress. When I first saw her, I actually didn’t recognize her. I love that the her look was different from all the other dresses on the red carpet. Her relaxed waves also looked perfect.
Salma Hayek looked so pretty in her strapless brocade Alexander McQueen gown.
Kelly Osbourne knows what looks good on her body-type and this Georges Chakra dress looked fantastic on her. I especially love the midnight blue color which complimented her hair perfectly. I also love her camera clutch.
