Hey everyone, I hope the upcoming Christmas insanity hasn’t made you lose all composure just yet.
I thought I’d share a printable I made for both The Evil Assistant and myself for our updated beauty routines. I was going to do a more in-depth weekday one showing when to use acids (AHA and BHAs) and retinols buuuut that whole “Catalina update sucks and I don’t have access to my Photoshop CS6 anymore” thing is still happening… you know, that ole chestnut!
At least I can share this simple routine with you now and give you some other quick tips to keep in mind.
Use retinols at night only.
Remember to ease into new routines, i.e. acids and retinol products should be used once a week then built up from there.
Alternate acids and retinol use, e.g. Monday = acids, Tuesday = retinol, etc.
Mechanical exfoliants with chemical exfoliants
(sonic brushes then any “__ acid”, fruit enzymes like pineapple and AHAs/BHAs)
I know, I know, it’s another nails post! I was going to add this to the branded nails post and have a Super Mega Nails post but it would have been way too long and the Assistant has been prodded and poked to do a Halloween makeup post so… I’ll we’ll try to get on that!
For now I want to show you one of my favourite nail looks, dragon-like, reptilian scale nails! All you need is some false nails, Blu-Tack, nail glue, nail file, and nail polish.
Look I know the audio is terrible but we have days of audio issues, including the fixed and cleaned audio suddenly being swallowed so enjoy this mess but I hope you learn something THANK YOU! We’re looking at Drew Barrymore’s makeup line, FLOWER!
I will (shut up I know what you’re going to say) be taking a few weeks away from making posts as I have to do some other things, but I will be a good girl and updating the socials (Facebook even though I hate it, Twitter and Instagram), so follow us on those or maybe just none if you want, I won’t pressure you, so enjoy the video and see you again soon!
