Things to Remember

Just because you choose to purchase jewelry at F21, Charlotte Russe, or Clair's remember that you can keep it for longer than expected.  Just spray the metal with a clear paint.  This will keep the item looking new and not turn your skin green!

Painted your nails?  Don't have an hour to wait for the paint to set?  Just spray Pam on the tacky nail and voila it's set.  Now I wouldn't recommend folding laundry or anything but you can get on the computer, scratch your nose, and various other things without worrying you will nick or mess up your polish.

Clean your makeup brushes - 1 TBSP of white vinegar  a drop of dish soap, and warm water.  Let brushes set in the mix for a min, swirl around, rinse, and let dry.  This will remove makeup and oils to keep your skin clear.

Add a little corn starch to your clear top coat to make your own matte finish.  I recommend doing this to an older bottle that is almost empty so you don't waist polish, but this is much cheaper than purchasing a matte top coat.
Happy Shopping!


  1. I never knew you should clean make up brushes! Thanks for the tip. How often should it be done?

  2. At a minimum once a week. I typically do it when the brush isn't as soft. If you have oily skin or tend to breakout easily I recommend every other day. Makeup and oil build up on your brush. Plus if you invest in a quality brush you want it to last a long time. It only takes a few minutes and you can do it when you wash your face at night, the brushes will be dry by morning.

  3. I had no idea, its been years with the same brushes!!! Maybe I'll pick up some new ones before trying this out.

  4. Try cleaning your brushes anyhow. See the difference. At first I hadn't cleaned my brushes in at least 7 months. They came clean right away, I know because I did the process 2 times to see if the water was clear the second time or not.
