so, not to
humble brag, but i made these babies myself! no, i’m not a graphic designer, but with a little patience, and the help of google, i was able to design them for print. it’s pretty easy once you get a few fundamentals down. this is by no means a diy business card post, because i’m not a professional, but tinkered around in adobe photoshop elements to get a design i loved.
as i’ve said more than once, i love a pop of neon (as most recently noted, here). i created this “colour duet” for glitter guide and it was pinned like crazy! in the spirit of keeping things fresh, i usually don’t re-post the beauty editing i do for glitter guide, but if there’s a post i love, i just need to let you all know about it! this is such a super cute mani idea and perfect for spring and summer; here’s a step by step how to including the easiest way to get that crisp tip.

learn how to get your brushes clean in one simple step!
not only do clean brushes help your makeup go on so much smoother, and with greater colour integrity, but it just feels good to be clean, doesn’t it? you might not realize that dirty makeup brushes are probably causing clogged pores!
most of us don’t consider giving our germy makeup brushes a good wash… how do i know? because i surveyed my friends, and let me tell you, most of them said they’ve never done it. as a professional makeup artist, if i’m working multiple people throughout the day, i sanitize and wash my brushes with a quick drying solution in between clients, and when i get home, i give them a thorough wash. i bet you will too once you see what comes out of them!
