How to Solve the Mascara Clumping Problem!

This beauty has mastered the trick of working with mascara with her perfect application.


I have no patience when it comes to a mascara formula that constantly keeps clumping. Though you want to just discard it, cosmetics can be expensive. Therefore, I found a trick to get around replacing it before the three months when it should be tossed.  

What I found that does help is reaching for a tissue and gently rubbing the mascara wand against it first before applying does seem to work for lessening the chance of clumps.

However, if you want to better your odds of avoiding a clumping mascara formula entirely, you might want to stick to a lengthening mascara in place of one meant to thicken.  The reason for this is because it’s a thinner formula that is less likely to gel up on you.

Just in case, you find the thinner formula is too wet after you get it on, this is easy to fix.  Again, get another tissue and press it gently against the lashes.  By doing so, you'll absorb the excess.

I hope that you try this makeup trick because it has never let me down yet!

Before you know it, it will be bathing suit season.  Despite that sexy, new bikini that you

bought and struggled through the winter to drop a few pounds for just so it fit like it was custom made for you, you still might not be ready to show off your great body when you look at your feet.  


After all, you need your feet smooth and soft enough to cuddle and tempt hands of passing admirers while you lounge on the beach.  Therefore, summer feet beauty starts now if you’re serious about buffing away any calloused or rough skin they may have.

I got to try the American Podiatric Medical Association approved, Emjoi Micro-Pedi Callus Remover to see how this battery-operated device with its safer, fast spinning roller could handle smoothing my feet.  After laying down a clean towel to catch the dead skin, I ran that nonmetal roller up and down the heels of my clean feet several times and I finished before I knew it.  I had feet pretty without bleeding.

If you want speedy grooming and avoid irritation compared to risking your feet to those scary metal scraping tools to get rid of callouses, you would like Emjoi’s Micro-Pedi Callus Remover.  

Right now, the company is selling a gift box with Emjoi’s Micro-Pedi Callus Remover that includes an extra roller for $39.95.  You should check it out.

What woman’s hair doesn’t need strengthening?  Think of all we do to our hair just every day from bombarding it with heat from our hair dryers and hot styling tools, not to mention chemical processing to color, perm, or straighten. Though I didn’t know what to expect from this new Roux Rejuvenating Keratin Strengthening Shampoo, Conditioner and Volume Boosting Serum, I am never one to refuse hair help.

How to Get the Most Skin Care Protection From Vitamin C Serums!

Beautiful blonde with great skin.jpeg
This beauty knows how to take proper care of her skin whether indoors or out.

When it comes to helping the skin defend itself from free radicals, you can’t do much better than turning to a topical vitamin C serum.  Its main purpose is to guard against further sun damage, not nudging fresh collagen to the surface of the skin.  This is especially critical for those suffering from excessive sun damage to preserve the integrity of the skin. 

However, there are some important things that you should keep in mind if you want to get the most effective vitamin C serums.  Look for at least 10 percent of active vitamin C for the most beneficial product.

I am a stickler when it comes to doing everything in my power to defend my face against the ravages of time and the elements. Therefore, I make it a habit to never leave the house without some form of sunscreen.  A wonderful multitasking mineral moisturizer that I tried lately was the one I received from vegan brand, Mineral Fusion.

In the past, I have had trouble with reactions from some chemical sunscreens.  However, I never had a problem with the mineral formulas or any of the skin care products that I have already sampled from Mineral Fusion.   

Their Mineral SPF 40 Face Moisturizer has no phthalate, paraben, gluten or artificial color and is 100% vegan to safeguard health.  Mineral Fusion’s formula is gentle with a marvelous, thicker consistency that is not too heavy or too light. Yet, this lotion feels practically weightless on your skin.  

This non-sticky lotion is quickly absorbing and makes a nice base to apply primer or your foundation without casting that white look that you can get when using a natural sunscreen  while satisfying the skin with plenty of moisture and sun protection.  

Furthermore, I never looked greasy wearing this through my day.  Though I do have to admit that my complexion is dry, but its shea butter along with the mineral water formula gave me a dewy look.

If you’re hunting for a great natural moisturizer/sunscreen that won’t make you look like a ghost afterwards, I urge you to try Mineral Fusion’s Mineral SPF 40 Face Moisturizer ($24.99) because it is a true find and the next best friend an aging face can have. Find it at the company’s website or Whole Foods.

Using the correct brush is the key.  

Whenever you think of using loose face powder, your first thought always runs to grabbing a big, fluffy powder brush to apply it with.  However, it can have a tendency to leave the skin overly matte looking and dry by delivering too much powder as you dust it on.   Therefore, you may be wondering what else can you do than keep dusting more off?
