Happy Skin!Β 

Hi there beauties! (Quick intro) In one of my previous posts, I mentioned sticking to a skincare routine. Skin care is so important, it is the very first step to a great makeup look! Your makeup starts, before the actual foundation, or even the primer. With that being said, I do have a special post coming up featuring some new Mary Kay skincare products along with some other exciting Mary Kay treats that I know you guys will adore. 
I wanted to talk about skincare a bit more, but also about learning to love your skin even if it isn’t flawless naturally. I have combination skin, and what that means is that some places of my face are more acne prone, and I have dry patches in other parts of my face-mainly my cheeks. You could see how this can be very frustrating. However, part of learning to love your skin is to just accept it. You can use a lot of products to help whatever skin type you have, but you must be dedicated to giving your skin whatever love it needs. I’ve learned to accept my skin type as combination skin, and I’m figuring out how to take care of it from the inside out. But it’s up to you with YOUR skin to figure out what it needs. Vitamins? Night cream? Medication? It’s up to you to figure it out and help it along. Also, keep in mind to try and stay positive about the whole process to happy skin. Did you know that stress can cause horrible breakouts? It’s something to keep in mind so you don’t get into a cycle of stressing out and breaking out. 

My favorite thing to both avoid the stress and take care of my skin? Do a relaxing, hot bath and a face mask. How do you relax and take care of your skin? 😘

January 2017 Wish list!Β 

​Hello everyone! πŸ’•

While these feel a little more casual, I love doing these wish lists and sharing exciting products I would like to purchase. I also love to hear what is on their peoples wish lists, I think it’s so interesting and I’ll go and watch YouTubers wish lists (which eventually leads to hauls) I just get so into all of it. Also, talking about these things or writing them down kind if makes me feel like I’m writing in a diary or talking with a girlfriend and it’s fun! 
#1 Holographic nail powder- I’ve wanted holo nails for the longest time, and I watched @HeyParis’s video on how to do it at home, so I went out and searched the internet for the sparkly fairy dust for a reasonable price! 


#2 Jelliez lip plumping mask- I already love my lips, but recently I’ve just been curious about all of these lip plumping products and how I would look with a semi-permanent pout, so I want to give this one in particular a try. I searched for different YouTube and Instagram videos, and this one came up the most showing results😊 


#3 The Neutrogena Acne Light Mask- I first saw this in a commercial (duh, marketing doing it’s job and apparently nicely if I want it!) I was intrigued by the masks appearance and the neon glow from within. That glo is actually the treatment which you use about 10-15 minutes per session daily to help reduce acne and get rid of dark spots.

I do struggle with acne and right now I am really into skincare which I could probably do a whole post about different products and finding what’s right for your skin, and reminding young tweens like I was at one point that just covering the acne with makeup doesn’t make it go away! 

#4 Nano portable hydrating mister- I first saw this on Instagram and have just become obsessed with this little gadget. It is more for dry skin I would think, but I am sure you could use it with oily skin if you just use water, and  I do have combo skin and you could even just fill it with water and spritz it everywhere if it’s hot out, or I could also see this being really great for airplane travel because your skin and everything can get SO DRY on a plane due to the lack of moisture in the air. 


That’s everything on my list for now! Which product interested you the most, and what’s on your wish list this month?  Let me know in the comments! 😘

❀ Chic Couture β€

​Let me tell you guys about a super cute clothing brand called Chic Couture! Already a sweet name, right? Well if you take a look at their website, they have even sweeter clothes and deals that are perfect for everyday, or that special day coming up- Valentine’s Day! β€πŸ’•

Keep reading until the end for a fab deal!

 The first piece I wanted to show you is what really drew me into the brand, this luxurious velvet dress 😍 it comes in pink or red and just screams glam. It’s prefect for a night out, special occasions, or just everyday wear for hanging out and looking chic! I would pair this look with a cute diamond choker and thigh high boots, or cute, fluffy sandals. Of course, if heels are not your thing plain or sparkly flats would look just as sweet. For the colder season a cute faux fur jacket or simple cardigan would pair nicely with these. Or, for a bit of an edge you could wear a black leather jacket over with some booties. πŸ’• These lovely dresses are $32 each and along with everything else, can be found in the link to the shop below! 

The next item is this sexy, dramatic high-low top for $20. This stylish too can be worn with shorts as shown and again, I would pair it with thigh high boots, or nice jeans with any shoe of choice and some delicate jewelry. The look is great for all ages and would look flattering on anyone! You could go so many different directions with this look, you could belt it at the middle to accentuate your waist, or leave it loose and free with some skinny jeans for a more casual look.  

The final item which is great for January/February is this adorable beanie! I purchased this item a year or so ago and it is so comfy and soft. I love the little touch of suede with their signature C.C. on the brim. Whether your style is girly and glam, or nice and casual this accessory is a staple for your wardrobe especially in the cold months. (I know it isn’t cold EVERYWHERE right now, but it can stay chilly for awhile throughout the next few months, even transitioning into the springtime.) πŸ’• Style tip? or more of a fun fact about Stylshorty, I love to wear beanies at night because it just adds to warmth and coziness when I want to be all comfy- these are prefect for itπŸ’• Thought they couldn’t get any cuter? Me too, until I saw time with wait for it….fur pom poms! Anyone who knows me knows that I am on love with the faux fur trend right now and these just add to the major cuteness factor of these hats! They are $15 without the pom pom and $20 with! 

But wait! Want to look save money while you’re looking stylish and chic?!

image

So you’ve just come home from a night out, or maybe you’ve just been out all day testing out MAC’s brand new lipsticks at the mall, when you get home, look in the mirror and it looks like you’ve been eating berries all day! Instead of scrubbing off the excess lipstain and making your lips all chapped/dry afterwards, here us a quick way to get rid of that “I just made out with a clown” look!
You will need:
Β° A warm wash cloth
Β° Petroleum Jelly

image

Step 1
Put a light coat if the petroleum jelly onto your lips

Step 2
Get the wash cloth wet with warm – hot water and gently go over your lips. The lipstain or lipstick should come off quickly!

Step 3
Apply a touch more jelly after you’ve finished, or your favorite ChapStick for gorgeous, kissable lips! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’‹
