The Best Mascara

This is my first post in long long time! Unfortunately I just ran out of time with two toddlers to look after plus working as well. I still love to cook and hopefully I will be back soon with some more recipes.

So what else have I been doing?? As you may know I’m bit of a beauty addict and makeup junkie. I was an Avon Lady for a long time until I discovered Younique last year. It’s a Mineral makeup and skincare direct sales company and the products are amazing!! I fell in love with them and haven’t looked back.

Their best selling product is the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. It comes with two wands – a transplanting gel and the nylon fibers. Just look at my lashes in the top picture!! If you want long lashes without having to put falsies on then this is it! I absolutely love it! Here is a short ‘how to’ video so you can see for yourself the difference this amazing mascara can make to even the smallest of lashes.

My Favourite Primer

I’ve been a bit busy this week so thought I would do a quick product review for Beauty Tip Tuesday this week.

I decided on my favourite primer, Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre Foundation Primer. I’ve been using this primer for years now and I really love it. It’s a blend of Vitamin E, Chamomile and Yarrow extract. It keeps your skin hydrated and provides a base for your foundation helping it to stay put during the day. It feels beautiful on your skin and can even be worn without foundation.

I’ve waived from this primer a few times over the years and tried other brands but I always come back to Napoleon Perdis. It is a bit pricey at $59.00 AUD but worth every penny. And I must say I love the gorgeous gold packaging too.

As Napoleon Perdis says, ‘It’s a Crime not to Prime!’

Top 5 Tips for Great Nails

Nail Art

For those of you who know me my nails are my pride and joy. I’ve had long nails since I was a teenager and I’ve been taking care of them ever since.

Here are my top 5 tips to keep your nails looking their best.

1. Don’t bite them!! 

I can’t understand why anyone would bite their nails. I know it’s one of those habits that’s hard to break but try to stop if you can. It’s not doing your nails any favours.

2. Cut and File once a week

I always trim and file my nails once a week. I keep them at a reasonable length as if they get too long they tend to break which I don’t want. That would be disasterous!!

3. Moisturise

Use a good hand cream every night. This is good for hands and nails.

4. Get enough calcium in your diet

Calcium is great for strengthening your nails. I don’t eat a lot of dairy but I do try to get some into my diet. Or you could also use a nail hardener such as Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength Hardener – http://www.sallyhansen.com

5. Cover up 

When you are cleaning that it is. Protect your nails with rubber gloves when you are cleaning or washing the dishes. My mum always used to laugh at me for doing this. Such a princess thing to do but hey, I love my nails and want them to look nice.

So there you have it. That’s my routine and tips for keeping your nails in great shape. Of course I love to paint them too. I’ve been trying my hand at some nail art recently. Check out my Nail Art post.
