Extend the Staying Power of Eyeliner - The Colorful Way!

There are a lot of tricks in the book as to how we can extend the staying power of eyeliner. The most common is the loose powder>liner>loose powder trick. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to apply eyeshadow primer prior to those 3 special steps (You'd understand that line if you have a kid whose addicted to Playhouse Disney!). Anyway, not only was I able to prove that it works, but I was also able to discover a cheap way of achieving several colors of dark eyeliner! Are you ready? Here's how:

Have a reliable black pencil eyeliner handy. I use Revlon's Luxurious Color Kohl Eyeliner in matte black. Line your eyes with it like you normally would. And don't fuss about not having a straight line, it should be corrected by this tip as well!

Prepare eyeshadow color you used on the darkest part of your eye make up. I used a dark violet shade from Dollface Cosmetics' 78 color palette, the color I used for the outer V.

Get a stiff eyeliner brush, dip it on the eyeshadow and use it to smudge your black eyeliner. I used the flat liner brush from Charm's travel pro set v2.

See how your black eyeliner seem like dark violet now?

The best thing about this is that, you can practically turn any color of eyeshadow into dark eyeliner with just one eyeliner color - Black!

Pretty neat huh?!

I don't know how original this trick is...All I can say is that it works for me! Let me know if it works for you too!

Ella's First Trip to the Dentist

If you read parenting books and magazines from the US, most of them would suggest that babies should meet up with a dentist within 6 months of the first tooth eruption. I guess it's not a sort of protocol here in the Philippines...Ahh, I can still remember the look on the dentist's face when I brought 1 year old Ella for a check-up and said she doesn't have tooth problems!

Anyway, fast forward to last Tuesday. I brought Ella to the dentist again because there are white spots on her teeth. And my...she was sooo brave!

The dentist said they have become part of her tooth enamel and would lead to cavities if not taken care of. She said it could be caused by teeth being soaked in milk. When I researched further, the closest I can associate it to is dental caries. Fluoride something was applied to her teeth and the process is supposed to be repeated every 6 months to prevent tooth cavities. Drew forgot the name of the exact procedure, but it could be called Fluoride varnish based from the same link.

Have you brought your tots to the dentist? They might need this treatment too!

To The Man I Love!!!

Behind every successful man is a woman...in our case, it's the other way around.
His words will only either build you up or pull you down...it depends on how you interpret it. And for most of the ones who've left because of that, I wonder where you are now. But that helped me become a leader.
He speaks the truth that no one would like to hear... t'was a good thing I listened.
He displays a comedic disposition, but is actually sensitive.
He shows a stern father to her daughter, but is actually soft.
He can be seen as authoritative, but is actually submissive.
He can be cruel in an instance, but is actually kind.
He is addicted to online gaming, but it helped him become some sort of a tech whiz.
He looks innocent, but is very naughty.
He created one of the greatest deceipts its in my life and I love it.
It doesn't seem like a special day today, but this is the day he was born for me.
Happy Birthday my dear Bessy! We love you so much!!!

your every woman,
