7 WAYS TO USE YOUR OLD BEAUTY PRODUCTS


Hello beauties! Today I want to share with you very interesting  information I've read recently, I'm sute it will be useful for all beauty products lovers.

Before we begin: do you know that makeup products become old? Here's list of beauty product lasting:
Mascara: 3-6 months;
Lipstick, lip gloss, blush, eyeshadow, bronzer: 2-3 years;
Foundation: 6-12 months.

If you have products that are already too old and you don't want to risk, then here are some tips will help you:


Eyeshadows

- Are there old eye shadows are broken but you love their colour? Crush the shade and mix it together with a transparent nail polish, and voila - You have your own nail polish shade nobody has!

Perfume

- Do you have many samples of perfume or almost empty perfume that are liying in the box? Mix some perfumes with a cream that does not smell, and you will have a special cream that tastes amazing!
Fun fact: once I bought a perfume with expired date ten years before I got it (around 9 years 10 months). Btw, it was still good, so whatever, but I was shocked when I found out expired date on the box.


"Empty" lipgloss
- Is your favorite lipstick almost empty? Well, often there is still a lot of lipstick yet, but it's impossible to get it. Tightly close and put in a glass with boiling water. Lipstick will become liquid and from the bottom will drain down. Then remove and leave to cool in a lying position, so that the glosswon't be on the bottom, but on the walls.

Dried favourite mascara

We all had mascaras with perfect brushes. Actually you can clean with cosmetics removal and use it again for the next mascaras or just for brushing lashes / brows.

Exhausted makeup brush

- Do you have a makeup brush that no longer does the job so well? Well, instead of throwing it, you can use it the next time you use a mask.

Too dark foundation

- Now while it's not sunny summer yet, I think that probably most of us have a foundation or two lying in a box that is too dark. Instead of throwing it, you can use it for contouring.

Old rouge?

- If you have an old blush that is either broken or just drained, you have several options. If it is completely consumed, you can use it as an additional mirror, as you leave lying in your purse (it's always nice to have it!). But if it is broken, you can mix it with a transperent lip gloss, that will give you a new lip gloss!


Hope you like ideas! I would like to try all of them, maybe I will write about my experience later!

HOW I TAKE #OOTD PHOTOS ALONE

As most of my photos took by myself, maybe some people will be interested in some tips after my a few yeas experience. When I started my first blog I was worried who will take all threse photos and who take all these photos of fashion bloggers everyday. Now I know answers and I'm sure you don't need a photographer if you want to have pretty blog or Instagram. Taking photos alone have their own pluses and for me there even more of pluses then when I have somebody that take photos of me. As people that almost never take photos mostly won't do a nice picture of you. Photographer is important as model is, so being your own photographer isn't bad thing, if you're pretty good at taking photos.

I don't know why people trying to ignore these two cheap things that will make your photosessions easy to do. I talk about:
♥ Remoter. It costed like 4 dollars but helps like it costs a million dollars haha. After I started to use it will make my photos so much brighter and more in focus. Of course, as it helps to find right focus. And helps to take photo in a right time.                                                    
♥ Tripod. Before I used big that aren't very high trees's branches and my camera even felt a few times, so that's very bad idea. Everything is too high or short. With a help of tripod you can make a height you need. And no, it doesn't take a lot of space, you can even put it in the bag and when you will need to take photos you can make it big again.

♥ You can make a video screenshots. I actually hadn't this function on my camera but noticed it works on my phone.
Actually it works. You just record a video, stop at your favourite moments and make screenshots.
♥ First take test photos to see if you like settings and it will look good. Don't forget that nobody will say if something's wrong. It's very important. Don't take tons of photos when you're not about settings.
♥ As you can't see yourself as everybody else, be sure that light's good there where are you. Light is everything. A lot of our bad photos just had bad light. 
♥Use self timer.
♥Or timer on remoter
♥Or if you're ready right now you can use your remoter too.
For me standard 2 seconds are perfect, it's enough to be ready for photo and hide a remoter.
Find a place where nobody walks.
Or of course you can take photos home. Whatever. Just try to find a pretty background.
Be free at trying new poses and facial expressions, nobody see you. If that won't be good, you can delete those shots.

FAVOURITE COLD WEATHER LOOK


Hello guys, hope you enjoy spring holidays full of blossom. I took these photos a day before Easter and wanted to write a happy post, but honestly I had really hard 2,5 days. The worst Easter ever.
Any ways, we always should say ''goodbye'' to old bad things to meet new good things later, so I believe most of bad things happens for a reason. Now it's starting new period in my life (btw, I will have way more time for blogging since now).
Though now I have a mood for a few philosophycal posts, today I will be a ''fashion blogger'' (''fashion blogger'' because I'm really bad at it).

Cold weather in the town. We even waited for snow, but thanks to the power of this universe it's just +4 C haha. 
It feels weird after 20+ C temperature, but at least I have one good side of it - I can wear my favourite look for cold weather. My favourite new coat with a lush bottom, add black hat with a bow (that makes me feel a little bit fashionable, as mostly I feel like I dressed more freaky than fashionable), of course I bring my little dream bag and finish it with my white scarf with musical instruments print I found in a thrift shop the last year.

SUPRISING ADVANTAGES OF BEING SHORT

I decided to continue my post about problems of short people that seems most of you liked, but for this time I'll tell about positive side of being short! ♥

You can buy clothes in kids / petite department. And it's no only more of choice, but also cheaper!

 
Little stairs problem isn't a problem for who has little shoe size. Though sometimes I see small stairs even for me. That mean that only kids can go that way only or what?
 
Most of people think it's cute and I agree. Mostly tall people look cool to me, and short ones look super cute.
 
If you're short girl, there almost no chances to find a guy who's shorter than you, so you shouldn't worry about this.

You fit in small places. That helps in little cars or when I play with my niece.

Most of men prefer short girls more than tall girls. Rarely when men like that their girlfriend is taller than him.

A little bit of health facts:

According to one neuroscientist, taller people take about one-tenth of a second longer to perceive sensory information.

Being short carries a reduced risk of cancer. According to researchers, the cancer risk for men increases by 11 per cent for every extra 10cm of height, whilst rising for women by a shocking 18pc per 10cm.

If you are short, you are likely to live longer.

Being short puts you at lower risk of heat exhaustion or sun stroke.

MY MUST-HAVE ACCESSORISES ATM

Hello guys, I wanted to write even another post the day I wrote on the blog the last time. But I was so busy with babysitting with my niece and spenting a few hours everyday in a dentist. Finally after two weeks finally they made my teeth tommorow and I look like a human. I never thought that it will be so long. I thought it will take like 2 days.
Any ways I'm glad that I won't go anymore to this dentist anymore, cause it's the worst dentist I had in my life. He's in his 60's and his hands shake like all the time. He hurted not only my gums with a drill, but hard palate. He was just drilling in my hard palate. And he does everything not properly. Plus, he talks strange things all the time... like really strange things without point. Ah I'm glad that's over and that I'm gonna have more time for blogging.

In this post I want to share my favourites I wear this spring. In next posts I will show in my outfits, but now I will tell about things I really like to wear since it became really warm (exept a few recent days).
First one I started to wear this hat since first days of spring, as it was actually the time when spring started, not in the end of April as usually.
It was my little dream to have a hat like this one. I think they're super elegant. And perfectly suits to my coat. I will took pictures of this look while it's cold rainy days. Actually it was that cold yesterday that even I was cold in the coat, it's strange after like two weeks of crazy sun and +20 C.
I think this hat is really nice for this super cheap price. I was looking for hat in a thrift shop and even there were more expensive prices. 
Though hat's not the same as on photos on brand's store, but I even didn't notice this before, so whatever. You can check this hat just CLICK HERE .
Another thing from my my favourite new accessorises is this bag. I really love everything about this one, although I needed to change the chain, as for some reasons it's broke. I almost lost on the street this cutest pom pom, but good that kind people said me that it fell.
I really like the colour and type of the bag. Thi bag will bw look great with everything. I wanted to a ''classic'' black bag, but when I have seen this one, I understood that love this bag in grey colour more.
Btw, you can wear it in two different ways, but I prefer this one as on my photo, another way you can find on the online store CLICK HERE .
Also I decided to decorate my denim jacket with some patches. I adore how it looks, I really needed to buy more cause they were very cheap, shipping even was around the same price, as parcel I brought some with my favourite music bands, batman sign and ''punks aren't dead'' patch. 
I'm sure I'll bring some more of different patches the next time, I saw some cute ones. 
I bought it in Ukrainian rock store with only shipping to Ukraine.
