Clearly, I don’t have enough to do in my life other than want stuff.  This is a partial list, I have more stuff on Pinterest.  Obviously, I am disorganized too!

Current Obession

I’m currently obsessed with the idea of going from my red hair (that i love, red is best) to dark purple.  [If you follow me on Pinterest, you probably already realized this.] 




Look how cute it looks with pink lips.  I love pink lips!



What do you guys think?  Hot or not?

I disagree with the NYX eyeshadow Primer they pictured.  Get the HD one, it’s the same price and it works WAY better.


Do you disagree that any of these products work well?  We are interested in that growth shampoo, that seems too good to be true!

As you know we think Nailtiques is the holy grail of nail growth.

Cleaning your makeup brushes + Important Pinterest Warning!

18 Jul

How often do you clean your makeup brushes?  Daily? Weekly? Never?

I am personally bad about doing it so I am trying to make an effort to clean them more- to protect both my face and my brushes.


Cleaning options:

Professional Brush Cleaner – These are nice as often times you can just spray on the brush, wipe and use them right away.  This works well for daily cleaning, but would suggest doing a deep clean every so often with water.  Here are some daily cleaners.  You can also make your own!  Recipe Here and Here.

Shampoo-  This provides a deeper clean and uses water so you need to wait for the brushes to dry.  This is best done over night.  For this you can either get a shampoo specifically made for brushes like the Well-Cared For Brush Conditioning Shampoo ($14) by Bare Essentials.  Or you can use budget friendly Johnson’s Baby Shampoo ($2.99).  What you do is add about a quarter sized amount to warm water (not hot! you don’t want to melt the glue that holds your brush hairs.) Then swirl your brushes in the water being careful not to submerge the metal parts.


Vinegar and Water – DO NOT SOAK.  There are some pins on Pinterest that tell you to soak for 15-20 minutes.  This is a bad idea as it can ruin your brushes.  The correct way to use white vinegar to clean your brushes is to combine 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water. Swish the make-up brushes in the bowl until thoroughly saturated then gently rise the brushes under lukewarm water and lay flat on a towel to dry over night.


Vinegar / Dish Soap Mixture– Combine 1 cup of warm water, 1 tablespoon of liquid dish detergent and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar in a cup.  Swish the make-up brushes in the bowl until thoroughly saturated then gently rise the brushes under lukewarm water and lay flat on a towel to dry over night.  Again – do not soak.  This recipe is nice because the dish soap masks the vinegar smell.  This combo has many house hold uses such as getting rid of fruit flies and being a weed killer.  The more you know.


Ok, I’m going to go clean my brushes right now because I’m totally a slob and haven’t cleaned them all month.   -kassi

Pro tip – Pinterest Protection – Make your own Pore Strips (aka how to remove your eyebrows)

30 May

Another Pin that is being shared heavily on Pinterest caught my eye today.  I know those Biore strips are satisfying in the grossest way possible but they are pricey.  So the idea of making your own sounds great right?


WRONG!  Unless you want to look all Amanda Palmer and draw your eyebrows on like some kind of early 2000’s goth.  (sorry, not cute)


Don’t believe me that it will take your eyebrows off – our friends at Pin-tried It demonstrate.

 I’m sure it can be safely done, but I wouldn’t risk it.  I also don’t really think it could feel all that great to rip all the tiny hairs off your face…unless you feel like you need a little waxing.
