Lady Gaga Make Up

So the Lady Gaga concert is next week and I'm trying to figure out what make up I'm going to do. I love doing make up inspired by the performer I'm seeing. For No Doubt I did a wicked green, yellow and red make up look, rasta inspired.

Homemade Exfoliants

We fork out the dough for all sorts of beauty products, but did you know that you most likely already have everything you need to make an exfoliant/scrub?! Its really easy! You just need a few basic ingredients.

Exfoliating the skin is a great way to promote the regeneration of healthy new skin cells, making your skin softer and more open to creams, moisturizers and serums.

Face Charts

I was putting together some looks for fun, and to have on hand, and this is what I came up with. The scans aren't ace, but they're better than photos. I used MAC face charts because they're the easiest to use, and the most widely recognized.
PS - Eyebrows are hard to get even on paper!

Artifical Nails - FAQ

As a certified nail tech I get so many questions relating to artificial nails.
What's better, gel or acrylic?
Do they damage my nails?
How do I take them off?

You asked 'em, I'll answer 'em!

Avon Haul

Okay, I know "Erika, ANOTHER haul?!" yeah, I've been a little spend crazy lately. But in my defense, everything is really affordable!

Avon has always been in my life, my mom used to order Avon, Mary Kay, Arbonne, all those brands, and I got my first taste of make up by digging through my moms stuff.

Debbie in my office sells Avon and when I saw these colours, I had to get them, they were so cheep too! 2 eyeliners for $6, 2 eyeshadow sticks for $6, and 2 lipsticks for $10.  Not too shabby!
