Editor’s Picks: Father’s Day Gift Guide

fathersday

Some of you are probably wondering why there wasn’t a gift guide for Mother’ Day. Well there’s two reasons.

Reason #1

Hands down Mother’s Day is advertised much more than Father’s Day for obvious reasons. I was reading an article somewhere that said people tend to spend less on Father’s Day and I thought to myself maybe it’s because they don’t know what to get their fathers (or the father figures in their lives). Which brings me to the second reason for putting this post together.

Reason #2

I didn’t really think of the idea until recently and I’ve also noticed the influx in men that actually read my site. Since most of my content is primarily driven toward women I figured this would be the perfect time to test the waters with mens content. Either way I hope you enjoy my Father’s Day gift guide!

Please let me know below if you would like to see more posts like this in the future. Also for any men reading please feel free to let me know if you would like to see more mens content as well. Before I forget Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers including all the fathers to be!

Beauty On The Beach

Memorial Day weekend is finally here and we’ve all been dying to get a piece of the heat. While you’re out this weekend getting your tan on or BBQ hopping remember:

SPF IS YOUR FRIEND! 

Otherwise you will be putting your skin and hair at risk for a host of other problems such as dryness, wrinkles, brown spots, scaly skin, and skin cancer.

Below are a few suggested products for your hair, skin and lips that will protect you from sun damage. Allowing you to soak in the sun all summer long!

Let’s Make BB Cream

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 tsp Moisturizer w/ SPF
  • 1 tsp Foundation (heavy coverage) **use half a teaspoon if you’re using powder
  • 1/2 tsp Serum
  • 1/2 tsp Liquid or powder illuminator
  • 1 tsp Silicone Primer (*optional; to fill in your pores)
  • Mixing bowl (preferably glass) and spatula
  • Small plastic jar or bottle with pumpbbcreamdiy

Directions:

Mix the moisturizer,foundation,serum, and illuminator together until the consistency is smooth and free of lumps and bubbles.

Then it’s time to test it out!

  • If you want more coverage add a little more foundation
  • If you want less coverage add a little more moisturizer and serum
  • If you want more shimmer add a little more illuminator
  • If you want to cover your pores better add in a silicone primer

Once you’re happy with the results of your mixture then you’re ready to store your BB Cream.  Put it into the small bowl or bottle with a pump and put it to use!


Additional Tips:

You can also create a CC cream by adding either more moisturizer or serum,distilled water or Evian facial spray  (to thin out the BB cream mixture), and more illuminator.

*Be sure NOT to use too much water! The water should not be more than 2/10s of the whole mixture.
