Changes in my Makeup Techniques

Changes in my Makeup Techniques

Announcement.png

Hello and happy Sunday. I’ve noticed on Youtube that the “my makeup then vs. now” videos have resurfaced, and even though I already made a post in which I compared how I used to do my makeup before and how I currently do it, I think it would be really useful for me to really talk about the techniques I’m using now and how they’ve changed over time. I’m going to go step by step, following my usual makeup routine, and I’ll explain how everything’s changed. Let’s get started, shall we?

Primer

When it comes to primer application, the biggest change is that now I almost always use a brush. When I started wearing primer, I’d apply it with my hands, but now the brush is my preferred tool for application.

Foundation 

Did you notice I didn’t continue with concealer? I have recently switched up my routine, and now I apply foundation straight after priming and then I do concealer. I’ve noticed that my skin looks better, more even, and that the dark circles under my eyes are better concealed.

Concealer

I now apply my concealer with a brush as opposed to a sponge. It does take longer to blend, but the finish is so much better that the extra time needed is totally worth it.

Baking

There was a time when I used to bake religiously, but now I only do it when I’m going full-glam. I like how my skin looks when I don’t bake, like it’s more natural, at least that’s what it seems.

Eyebrows

Lately I haven’t been applying any color to my eyebrows, just a clear gel so that they stay in place throughout the day.

Eyeshadow

I now prefer a wash of color, applied with a blending brush, rather than something more elaborate like I used to before.

Those are the main changes I’ve made when it comes to application techniques. Have you changed anything in the way you apply your makeup? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Sunday!
Love, Miss Camila

Wish Update

Wish Update

Hello and happy Friday. Remember when I ranted about how I’d bought a ton of fake engagement rings from Wish and it’d been a super long and I hadn’t gotten them still? Well, I did get some of them, so I want to do an update/mini haul. Let’s get started, shall we?

This is a Claddagh ring, which I got because I thought it was cute and not because it had any special meaning. I think it’s cute and low-key, but it still has a small stone right in the middle. I love that it’s rose gold and honestly, I just love the design of it in gene

ral.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This set is the complete opposite of that last one. It says “everybody look at my hand.” I really like the intricate design and obviously the pink stone in the middle. It’s big and chunky, just how I like my rings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This set is a classic and I don’t wear it as much because it looks too much like an engagement ring, and I’m crazy but not that crazy. I think the cut of the stone is beautiful and I find that the width is super convenient and comfortable. I also think that a style like this will suit people with big and small hands alike.

What’s your favorite set? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Friday!

Sugar Bear Hair: After

Sugar Bear Hair: After

Hello and happy Sunday. First and foremost, this is not the picture I wanted to use but silly me forgot to take an “after” picture, so we’ll use this one because I look super hot, okay?

Instead of what I’ve been doing in the other posts, which is basically telling you the changes I’ve noticed in my hair and nails, I’ll tell you what I’ve been experiencing after finishing my two months of Sugar Bear Hair.

Let’s go back a little while because some of you might be new here. After a rough time for me, emotionally, in which I discovered that due to anxiety and probably poor eating habits my hair was falling off, I felt like I needed a boost. I had tried the Sugar Bear Hair gummy vitamins before and was in love, so I thought they could really help me again.

Over those two months in which I tool the gummy vitamins, I did feel that my hair was stronger, shinier, and overall healthier looking. It was getting its shape back and I was very happy with it. Now something to understand here is that when you take supplements and stop, you might be running the risk of what people who stop dieting or exercising go through: the effect just dissipates. I feared that my hair would go back to look opaque and unhealthy and that the falling out would increase once I stopped taking my Sugar Bear Hair, but that hasn’t happened.

I feel that after those two months of nourishing and love, my own body somehow has regained the ability to keep my hair beautiful and healthy. I feel that the falling out has gone back to the normal, expected amount, and that my hair has gone back to where it was before all the bad stuff happened. It has also grown so much that I now can pretty much do any hairdo except for a braid, but let’s give that a few more months.

In the comments below I’d like you to tell me some “glow up” stories.

Happy Sunday!
Love, Miss Camila

 

One Month of Sugar Bear Hair

One Month of Sugar Bear Hair

DERMAE

Hello and happy Saturday. If you read last week’s post, you know that I was kinda disappointed with the lack of visible advances in my hair from week one to week two. Today I have a completely different attitude because, honestly, who’s that queen in the picture?

Look at that shiny, volume-y, wavy hair. Look at how much it’s grown! I feel like I can do so many hairstyles now that I hadn’t been able to try because the length just wasn’t there, and I feel like shade-wise my hair has gotten its life back. You can actually see that there are some natural highlights going on.

I didn’t mention this in the previous post, but I have to admit that I did have a massive falling out situation. Again, like I’ve explained, that is caused by anxiety, and it’s not something Sugar Bear Hair can really prevent. I can say, however, that it was just one episode as opposed to the sort of uncontrollable situation I was going through before taking these supplements.

In one month, I’ll show you the final results of this little experiment. Now, I’m not sure if you’ve heard but Sugar Bear has come up with these multivitamins, and almost at the same time, Tati released Halo Kiwi, which is targeted specifically for the skin. In the comments below let me know whether you’d like to see me try one or both of these products and share my experience with you.

Happy Saturday!

Three Weeks of Sugar Bear Hair

Three Weeks of Sugar Bear Hair

DERMAE

Hello and happy Saturday. I know these updates tend to become kind of repetitive and that, you get it, Sugar Bear Hair makes my hair grow. Awesome. This is why today I’ll keep this post short and sweet.

I think that the change in my hair, especially in its length is noticeable if we compare the “before” with today, three weeks into the Sugar Bear Hair “treatment.” I didn’t see much change, however, with my hair last week and then this week. If anything, I feel it looks shorter in this picture, which is super odd, but might seem this way because it’ so dirty it maybe got that weird shape, which is not really like defined waves.

Do I still trust Sugar Bear Hair? Totally. Do I still think that it works and that my hair has become longer, healthier and overall better looking? Absolutely.

In the comments below, tell me more or less when do you start noticing that a hair care product is no longer working the way is used to.

Happy Saturday!

Love, Miss Camila

Sugar Bear Hair: 2 Week Update

Sugar Bear Hair: 2 Week Update

DERMAE

Hello and happy Saturday. In case you were wondering, this is the face of a teacher after coming home on a Friday. But we’re not here to talk about my face, right? We’re here to talk about my hair and whether I’ve seen any changes in the past two weeks.

Well, judge for yourselves. It’s obviously dirty, but it looks thick, which I associate with strength. It has also clearly grown, and I know this because I’ve been able to play with more hairstyles lately.

As for the falling out, I feel it has decreased, but then again, let’s all remember that this is more caused by anxiety than an issue directly related to the health of my hair or scalp.

Being halfway through the first month, I do feel like Sugar Bear Hair is giving my hair that boost to grow and be healthier, and you can tell. Yes, this picture was taken when I was pretty tired, but still my hair looks good, it has volume and a nice shape, which I’d been wanted to get back for a while.

In the comments below, tell me about self-care rituals that help you after a long week at work or school.

Happy Saturday!

Love, Miss Camila

Sugar Bear Hair: 1 Week Update

Sugar Bear Hair: 1 Week Update

Lovely Wholesale

Hello and happy Sunday. Yes, this is your weekly update on my hair. This week I didn’t feel great changes in terms of strength because my hair did fall off quite a bit, but at the same time, and I guess judging by the picture you can see it’s getting thicker.

This picture was taken on a Friday, so that means I had five-day old hair. That means it was definitely dirty and also it had lost the wavy shape my hair usually has after I wash it.

I think because it looks kind of straight, it also gives the illusion of being longer, and the truth is after that first week I did feel that it was growing faster than it had in the previous months.

All in all, I’m really happy with where my hair is going with this vitamins, and I know that taking a dietary supplement helps my general well-being. I honestly feel energized after taking my Sugar Bear Hair, not sure if it’s placebo effect or if it really does something else, but I like having these gummies as part of my daily routine and I want to continue seeing progress.

In the comments below tell me about a problem you’ve had with your hair recently and the ways you’ve been trying to handle it.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
