How to fix a broken eyeshadow

Oh no! Don't you hate when this happens? Broken eyeshadow ggrr! Luckily this one broke while the lid was still on which makes for an easier fix, in case you didnt know already, a  broken eyeshadow can be fixed with rubbing alcohol. Just  crush the makeup some more, if it's easier for you put it in a resealeble  baggy, pat it into the pallet,pot, wherever it came from and put a few drops of alcohol on the crushed eyeshadow, patting it till its flat inside it's pot, let dry preferably 24 hrs and Voila! You can continue to use your eyeshadow. Besos xoxo

At home pedicure

I work on my feet all day, sometimes seven hours or more, and it sure does a number on my toes! It's pricy to go to the salon and get a pedicure, which is a nice treat, but usually I just do it myself. Self-pedicures are cheap and it's nice to be able to do it in the comfort of your own home. (If only I owned a massage chair it could be even better!)

It's really easy to give yourself a pedicure. Just make sure to gather everything you need and keep supplies close to you.  You can use your tub, or for that spa feeling, use a large bowl big enough for your feet. You can even add some marbles or spa rocks if you want.

Here are some easy steps to having beautiful feet:

Soak. Add Epsom salt to warm water. You can also add some essential oils for a therapeutic effect. Soak feet for about 10 min. Also, if you suffer from athletes foot or to combat foot odor, add a few drops of tea tree oil to the water.

Buff.  Dry feet, then using pumice stone buff your feet concentrating on the rough areas.  Usually the balls of your feet, your heel and big toe.

Exfoliate. With a homemade scrub consisting of olive oil and kosher salt, exfoliate your feet. Take it all the way up to your legs for all-over softness.

Clip. Pat feet dry and trim toe nails with a toe nail clipper. Cut toenails straight across when you trim them. Never round them to match the shape or curve of the end of the toe. Rounding toenails is an invitation to ingrown toenails and other painful problems.

Moisturize. Massage feet and legs with a rich thick creamy lotion. Apply some cuticle oil or again use some olive oil to soften and push back cuticle.

Polish. Wipe toe nails with acetone to wipe off lotion. Then add a base coat followed with 2 coats of polish and finish with top coat.

Have a good beautiful people :)

Yummy chocolate facial good enough to eat.

It's almost February and you know what that means – its almost Valentines Day!  This is a day in which kids exchange valentines to their classmates, a day where couples get all lovey-dovey and buy chocolates and roses for each other. What I'm happiest about is the chocolate!
Now, not only is chocolate super yummy, but it also releases serotonin which is just fancy talk for mood booster. It's delicious and it's scientifically proven to make you happy.

Another great benefit is that it's good for your skin. Chocolate is full of antioxidants that help fight against free radicals that cause skin damage. When selecting your chocolate, remember that the dark variety contains more antioxidants than milk chocolate.

In addition to obtaining the health benefits of chocolate by eating it, you can also slather the sweet stuff on your face as a mask for a beautiful glow.

You will need:
1/3 cup of cocoa powder (raw dark cacao powder is better)
1/2 cup of honey (dark organic is better)
2tbs of heavy cream or plain yogurt
3tsp oatmeal

Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl to form a paste.  Apply to clean face and neck. Massage lightly (oatmeal works as a exfoliant so make sure to massage gently) and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

That's all for now wishing everyone a Beautiful week besos Dania La beauty

Shaving 101

Today's tips are for the fellas, to help you get that barber-style shave feeling. Follow these steps to ensure a ingrown hair-, razor burn-free shave.

Tip Número 1: Shave after a hot shower, or if there is no time, place a damp, hot towel on your face to open up pores.

Tip Número 2: Use a shaving cream with a glycerin base, stay away from products containing menthol — it will close your pores.

Tip Número 3: To avoid ingrown hairs and razor burn, make sure your blade is sharp — never use a dull blade. And always shave in the direction that your hair grows.

Tip Número 4: Make sure to hold your skin taut so that razor glides smoothly over skin.

Tip Número 5: Last, but not least, close your pores with a cool water rinse and pat your face gently dry. Use a good shaving balm and avoid using products that contain alcohol, because it will dry your skin.

That's all for now besos Dania la beauty pie.
