make-up & be happy -thats my name

i feel like thats the definition of me.
with all that is going on in my life right now. every single problem i have. every tear i want to cry. i know someone has it worse than me right now. 
and today (well yesterday) i was working, and a lady of my moms age walked into the store. its been months since i’ve seen her so i enthusiasticly asked her hows she doing. she replied with answers filled with sadness. i was deeply touched -the fact that i am only 21 and yet shes in her 50s in front of me spilling her guts. and that for me is like putting your heart on the line. anyway she told me she felt depressed her body hurts and so on. and i held her hands and looked her into her eyes and told her “you’re stronger than you believe and sooner than you know it, things will be fine. this is just a flat tire, youll learn, so you can teach, and protect everyone else. this is what we were put on the world for.” i reminded her of her beauty, and how things will be better just around the corner, i also made sure i told her, i might not know as much as her but i suffered through depression too. cause its gonna be chinese new year! 
she asked me for my number, and invited me to spend time with her and thanked me countless times,  but i feel like i should thank her even more. because she proved me right were all stronger than we believe. im stronger than i believe. being able to put aside the break up & all the confusion that comes along with it, my big ol secret thats super scary and confusing as well, and all the effort im putting into everything to try to make everything a bit better. just to hear her out, and make her feel alive again for however long my words has an effect on her -makes me so happy. like look ‘ma for once i didnt screw up. even though i screwed up everything before. :’) by talking to her, helping her out -it made me believe in myself more. and its something that just happens you know. i cant really explain why its such a great feeling -but it just is. 
lots of love and great feelings!

Some cup of teas are more bitter than others.

But its okay! A teaspoon of honey in the tea, with a cute pink lipstick on will make it better.

I am so sorry readers for taking so long to post up a new blog =( ! I actually had a bitter cup of tea for a few days that I had to work though. So here's to pink lipsticks!

I feel like as soon as I add on a pink shade lipstick everything in my life that seemed bitter, isn't anymore. Pink lips are so pretty, and I am talking about all shade of pink! They also create a fuller look for skinnier looks -which is a sign of fertility. Its amazing. I love pink lips! My favorite pink lipstick is Pink Pearls from Motives Cosmetics. I am forever in love with this shade! You can order it and fall in love with it too :] just like I did. [and if you become a customer the website will even give you cash back!]

Remember, even when your cup of tea is bitter, a teaspoon of honey and your cute pink lipstick can turn it all around. =] Follow your dreams and thrive.

Pink lipsticks and honey,

I LOVE LEMONS. The scent, the way they taste, the ways I can use a lemon! LEMONADE!! :) Lemon Zest. 

But when life gives me lemons, my smiles not as big. Hahahaha but I still carry on. Growth and progress is the purpose of life, and sometimes lemons are required. So take that lemon and make some lemonade or use it as a yummy exfoliate with some sugar from your sweet sweet heart and scrub your face :] it'll all be okay. You're all going to grow and progress and be even more beautiful with every lemon given to you. 

Love, more than I love lemons
Michelle :]

Back With Goodies!!

Sorry my beautiful readers for not posting sooner, but I’ve been running around the last few days putting my flyers out :] and other stuff leaning to the business side!
But now I shall take time to answer questions I frequently get asked.
How I take care of my skin. Ever since I was little, I had great skin. It obviously gets a slight bit worse from time to time. But I keep it to the minimum by washing my face with an all natural scrub I make at home with lemon juice, sugar and cotton swabs. It helps me with all my black heads that are very hard to get rid of, and makes my skin brighter and a lot smoother. After I am done with scrubbing my face and its free of any lemon or sugar, I apply toner, and finish by moisturizing.
The lemon juice works wonders just wet your face with warm water so you can open up all your pores pat it so its almost dry, but not too dry.Then, soak up a swab with lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on it (i use a fresh lemon and brown sugar) and scrub away, make sure to scrub in circular motions going upwards to prevent wrinkles, and get the places that are usually oily. Then rinse and dry, and apply toner and your moisturizer. :] (if I have a pimple I’d go the extra step and use a product called Timeless Prescription Anti-Blemish Lotion).
How do I clean all my brushes: For deep cleaning, I dip the bristle part into a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and wipe it back and forth or twirl it round and round to get all the make up out. After I am finished with that, I take baby shampoo or SNAP All Purpose Natural Concentrate (I LOVE THIS STUFF) and dip the bristles in that and twirl it around a little bit again and rinse out the EVOO and shampoo/soap with warm water, and leave it out to dry.
And if I am on the go, I use my Beauty So Clean Conditioning Brush Cleanser.
This is all for tonight! Check back soon to find out what type of brushes I use for every type of application! I’m also thinking of doing these as vlogs, tell me what you’d like to see. Thank you.
