Ouch! Mosquito….

Summer great for BBQ  and outdoor activities but mosquito tend to put a damper on things. If you’re like me with tons of mosquito scars here are a few tips to help prevent scratching and scaring.

Deodorant - Really works! Deodorant contains aluminum chloride, which is effective in stopping the pain and swelling associated with mosquito bites.  Apply by rubbing directly on the bite. You should see an improvement within 5 minutes.

Toothpaste –  Relieve irritation, sores, and blisters. Apply a drop of toothpaste to a bug bite and spread it around. This will decrease any swelling. When applied to sores or blisters, it dries them up, thus allowing the wound to heal faster.

 

How Many Mascara Coats Should You Be Wearing?

Personally 3 coats TOP… Tell that to the RUN WAY models. Clump lashes are in, so pack on the coats .  IF your not a CLUMP lash type of Chica here’s what I use.

Items needed:
-RevitaLash Volumizing Primer
-Givenchy (Noir Couture) Black Satin

STEP 1        Apply RevitaLash Volumizing Primer to bare lashes, wiggling at the base of the eyelash and twirling upward and outward.
STEP 2      Apply preferred shade of Givenchy Mascara.
STEP 3       Repeat for fuller lashes.

TIPS:

  • Twirling the wand helps separate lashes and allows for a more even coating on eyelashes.
  • Volumizing Primer is intended to be worn under mascara. However, it can be worn alone.
