All woman love to wear high heels but they are not so friendly to your feet sometimes. We all must have a favorite pair of heels that you love but kills your feet. So now you have to make the difficult decision between wearing them or not. I have had this problem so many times but these are some of my tips to prevent bunions, bleeding, and corns.
1. Corn Cushions
These little circles are the best and will relieve all pain quickly. Just place the circle on the toes that most often rub against your shoe. This makes walking in heels so much easier and pain-free.
This was another product that I tried so I would not get a blister while wearing my heels. You can apply this to the back of your shoe or on your skin.
3. Blowdryer with socks
Wear thick socks and blow dry the area that feels tight or hurts when you walk. This will stretch the heel if it fits to tight.
After applying makeup the struggle gets real people, you leave a mess and you can't find anything. All your brushes, palettes, and products are out of place. I am going to share some of my beauty storage tips so you can get organized and stop misplacing your favorite items.
1. Mugs for makeup brushes
Before I would always put my makeup brushes in a bag or pouch but I would always misplace them.. Until I placed them in a coffee mug, I just used an old mug that I was not using and it actually saved my life.
2.Shoe box Nail Polish holder
Use an old shoe box or any box you are not using to create a helpful masterpiece. Measure your box and make the right size cardboard strip. Cut them and place them inside to make a fast and easy nail polish holder.
3.Shoe Organizer as a lipstick holder
Another clever idea is to use a shoe organizer which has many pockets in which you can store all your lipsticks or foundations.
These are only a few options that might help you put everything in place and feel more organized. But if you have bigger items or household items you want to keep but do not know where to put them away then you should call MakeSpace. They pick up your stuff, take it to their storage facility, and whenever you want your items back they will bring them back. Click on the buttons below they will take you to their website and all the locations they offer service in.

Makeup /makeup products are such a trend right now in social media/society. In all these makeup videos, they use very expensive products that sometimes we can't afford or you just do not want to spend all your money on one product. That is why I am going to share some of my tips and cheap but great makeup products.
Instead of buying expensive brow gel or pencils I use colored pencils to fill in my eyebrows. I place the colored pencil in a glass of hot water to make the pencil soft. I also mix two different colored pencils to create my perfect shade. Another tip is use eyeshadows to fill in your brows. I also mix eyeshadows to make my shade and I use the Adara Paris eyeshadow. These eyeshadows are great because they are so pigmented and stay on for the whole day. But you can use any eyeshadow palette that you have.
Use shimmer eyeshadows as a highlighter, it works just as well or even better. RCLBeauty101 taught me this next trick, use sugar pearls as highlighter just add water and rub the shine off the pearls. If you do not believe me, I will have her video down below.
3. Setting Spray
I think I mentioned in my last blog about the benefits of rose water, mix rose water and water to make a setting spray. Also mix water and Witch hazel and you will have another setting spray,that will make your makeup last for the whole day.
I decided to write a blog about the benefits of rose water because I am amazed that It actually works. I was having trouble with a red and swollen eye, I applied so many remedies and nothing was really doing the trick. Until I tried rose water which helped my eye heal completely.That is why I will share 3 benefits of rose water that you might not know.
Rose water helps soothe irritated skin and removes oil from your skin to prevent acne. It reduces pimple size and redness, so if no acne products are working for you should consider some rose water.
2. Makeup Remover/Setting Spray
Makeup removers are sometimes so expensive and makeup wipes don't always do the trick, leaving you with a mess on your face. Rose water removes makeup easily and helps smooth your skin at the same time. Not only is it a makeup remover but it can also be used as a setting spray. Rose water prevents your makeup from looking sweaty/cakey and helps your makeup last longer.
3.Dark circles/ Puffy Eyes
If you wake up with huge dark circles or puffy/swollen eyes don't worry because I have the solution. Soak cotton balls in the rose water and apply on your eyes for about 10 minutes.
I have tried some many things to remove my blackheads but nothing really worked. After so many failed tries I found two ways to remove my blackheads for good.These two remedies are simple and you probably have all the materials at home to try them. I think these remedies are better than any blackhead removal creams or scrubs.
1.Elmer's School Glue
I was surprised when I found out that Elmer's Glue could remove blackheads. I was not sure about this one until I tried it out and I was shocked with the results. I applied a thick coat of glue on my nose and let the glue dry for 30 minutes or until it becomes clear. After It dried I peeled it off and it removed most of my blackheads. Some people said it did not work for them but I think it depends on your skin type.So do not be afraid to try this and the glue is non-toxic so you can apply it on your skin with no worries. I would give this a try before buying expensive creams or Bioré strips because this could work just as well.
2. Warm Water
The answer can be as simple as warm water to remove your blackheads. Place warm not burning water in a container or cup then dip any makeup sponge or a piece of cloth into the water. After the cloth heats up place it on your nose or any area of your body where you have blackheads. Hold it on the area for about 10 minutes and if your cloth gets cold place it in the water again and leave it on your skin longer for better results.

Today I will be sharing some common mistakes that people make while applying their makeup which makes them look older. I think makeup should make you feel fresh and young, it should not be aging you.If you do some of these things that I mention below and you feel beautiful don't change you makeup routine.I hope these tips help you achieve a natural look that will still make you feel beautiful.
1.Wearing too much Foundation
Covering your entire face with layers of foundation will make you look old and dry out your skin.It is best to apply only one layer of foundation and evenly distribute it throughout the skin to avoid harsh lines.
2.Wearing Dark Lipsticks
Dark colored lipsticks will make your lips and mouth look smaller. Avoid dark shades like browns,wines,and purples.It is best to choose colors that pop to make your lips look bigger like pink,red,and peach.
3. Using Mascara on your lower lashes
Applying mascara onto your lower lashes can draw attention to your dark circles.It can also make your eyes look tired and saggy. It is best to apply mascara on your upper lashes instead of the lower lashes to look more awake.
4. Appying a dark eyebrow pencil on your brows
If the eyebrow pencil that you own is darker than your natural brow color this will make you look older.Try to choose a brow pencil that is one or two shades lighter than your natural brow color to give you a more even tone.
Growing your nails out can be very difficult and can take months.Sometimes when you have grown them out one will break and you have to cut the other nails so it will not look weird. Here I will share some remedies to keep your nails strong and healthy so they will not break when growing out your nails.
1.Stop Using Nail polish
I love wearing nail polish but when I take nail polish off my nails are weak and look unhealthy. This might not be true for everybody but nail polish does damage the nail. If your are trying to grow out your nails I would not use nail polish for that period of time but when you see that your nails are strong/hard,you can paint your nails.
Nail polish drys out nails quickly and makes them very fragile. Apply vaseline to your nails and place gloves on your hands during the night. This will hydrate your nails and prevent them from breaking or splitting.
Place your nails in olive oil for about 10 or 15 minutes a day to strengthen your nails.Olive oli repairs and moisturizes your nails and doing this daily will make your nails hard and healthy.
