Bath in SUGAR! [29 Apr 2008|10:51pm]


Has anyone tried Victoria Secret Makeup? [25 Mar 2008|11:35pm]

[ mood | creative ]

I guess I've never really went into Victoria Secret for make up. I knew they had make up, but I guess never really thought to try it. Has anyone tried it and or like it, and could recommend certain products? Also t he Victoria Secret hair products. I have fine hair and was wondering if their volumizing shampoos or hairsprays were any good? 


L'Oreal True Match [19 Feb 2007|09:21pm]

Has anyone tried any of the L'Oreal True Match line? I've never found a foundation that didn't make me look orange and unnatural and I'm really hoping that this will be one that works for me. I've heard mixed reviews though. Anyone have any input?

Fake-tan [29 Jan 2007|11:05pm]

Can anyone reccommend a good fake-tanning lotion or spray? I'm looking for one that's quick-dry, easy to apply (esp on your back etc) and that is quite dark/good for olive skin. Only mainstream/drugstore brands though, please, I'm in New Zealand and we probably don't get the smaller brands you American/Brit gals do :-)

Some of my favorites:

Positively Radiant Cleanser is awesome
Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer is awesome too! Some people say it makes their skin feel greasy, but I put it on before I go to bed, like it says, and it's worked into my skin by morning. And i put it on again before I dry my hair and it's in my skin by the time I'm done. I am going to try the kind for redness on the face to see if it helps with that. But my facial is so soft and smooth since I have been using this! I swear by their body wash! It's the only body wash I use that doesn't make my skin itch! They started making it in a bigger size, too so that made me happy.

My favorite perfumes are: Paris Hilton (the first one- with the pink bottle and the black stripes. I love the smell!), Baby Phat, and Miami Glow.

Help!!! [28 Dec 2006|12:21pm]

Before I started dying my hair, it was perfect straight when I used a blow dryer, I could lay on it and still have it straight when I woke up with no kinks. It kept that way even after I started dying my hair for a few more years. Now, when I use my blow dryer, I can't lay on it without having kinks in it and now have to resort to using a flat iron, which I hate, because it flats my hair even more. Is this from dying it too much and what can I do, to have my hair back the way it used to be. Naturally my hair is a light ash brown, it is now black. The only way I heard, was to let it grow out. I can't stand roots and if I get the black out, it will ruin my hair once again. Are those my only opintions??


fake nails [19 Dec 2006|06:28pm]

hello all :]

quick question, i have acrylic (fake) nails on at the moment with a yellow top coat (this was all done proffessionally) ...that was 2 weeks ago and now the yellow looks bad.

think i could take the yellow off and simply repaint them, or will it destroy the acrylic or something.


[16 Nov 2006|02:39pm]

I have a massive problem with frizz!! In your proffessional opinions, what are the best anti-frizz hair care products?



[02 Nov 2006|02:03am]

well im new so..... im 14 and i have (in my eyes) O.K skin, not good skin but i dont have acne. really i only get little spots ( like bumps) on my forehead and occassionally whiteheads.

so there is only one big thing im annoyed with so im here to see what you have to say. I have always had quite oily skin on my nose...and my nose used to always, ALWAYS be red.

so i never wanted to moistorise...bad idea. but now i am and i notice that if i have been moistorising heaps my nose is normal in the morning...but by lunch time it is red again!

i mean i would love to be able to leave the house without putting foundation on but i feel like i need to with my nose because it seriously looks stupid!

and one thing ive discovered? fringes are god sent! haha
i have a side fringe so i always jsut wear it down when my skin is bad but then when i have those days when my skin is really clear i put it up!....well i love it haha.

ok well i will shut up
please! any ideas to get rid of the redness would be totally appreciated!

Hey everybody!

Does anybody know how to get my face cleaned up from acne during this week? I'm going to a costume party on saturday and I'd like my face to look extra lush. I don't have severe acne problems so I'm not on treatments or anything, I only get it because I'm addicted to chocolate and my skin won't stop reacting to it. 

A friend of mine told me that eating lots of cucumber salad, with lemon, helps keep the skin clean... do you know if this is true?

Thank you...

*tutorial request* [16 Apr 2006|11:10am]

Very Off Topic, and just ask me to delete it if it's too far off topic (xposted btw)

But Anyone who has any time sometime between now and next week, Could you post a tutorial or tutorials on any and all eyeshadow shapes you can think of? I have no idea how to go about makeing shapes, and so i was thinking i could maybe follow some tutorials you ladies post.....and i'm sure it'd help plenty of others as well....

or if you know of any existing tutorials on eyeshadow shapes, please link me to them! thank you sooo much!

(xposted, sorry)

Okay, for my senior project, I need to have at least one interview. it doesn't have to be conducted by myself, but it needs to answer ten questions i would find useful to my topic (makeup of course)....

What i'm asking you guys is either for any sites you know, or any direct links to an interview you guys liked/found useful.....or for you guys to each make up 1 question about makeup and applications (or even skincare, natural skincare mainly) and then post YOUR answer to it...and i'll make my interview that way.

Thank you SO much (i need this done before tomorrow)

Heya! my internet is really broken badly, so right now i'm at my Boyfriend's house on his computer.

So, what i need is....

Do any of you guys know anywhere online that has extensively great Tutorials and/or tips on Makeup application AND on hair????? I'd really appreciate fast responses so i can print them out before I leave.

I have bought books on the makeup portion, and can get more if i *HAVE* to.

ok so this is kinda gross but whatever lol - so a few weeks ago i went out in bitterly cold weather in strappy shoes and my feet got frostbite. so now, weeks later, the skin on my feet are peeling and i don't know what to do! and i'm not talking about a little bit of skin, i'm talking about thick pieces of skin on my toes. and when i peel some of it off, it still leaves an edge that leads to it peeling more. ergh help!!

best diet to lose weight? [04 Dec 2005|09:54pm]

I am new to dieting, but I would really like to reduce the size of my thighs... I know exercise helps as well as adjusting diet... I am wondering what is the best diet... what foods should i eat and what should i avoid? ie. I love pasta, but could the carbs be causing weight gain?

Any advice is appreciated. :)
