What's the Expiration on My Makeup?

Ladies lets say you are like me and love, love, love to makeup shop. I also switch purses often so sometimes I leave behind my fave lipsticks, mascara etc... Then i cant find things and time flies by. I finally find my fave lipstick in my old purse or under the bed or wherever and its been a year or sometimes longer. (wow)
Or I have opened my favorite mascara and its all dried out. (gross)

So the question is what is the expiration dates on the items in your beauty bag? When should you throw it away?

Great question....

Here's a list of some of the things you may have in your beauty bag and how long you should keep it before throwing it out.

I hope this has been helpful and if you have any other topics you would like me to discuss drop a comment below.

2 Ways Of Creating A Realistic Part In Your Closure

Hi there ladies, 

Today I will be discussing a way to make the part in your closure look more realistic. 
In case you are not sure what a closure is I will elaborate. A closure is a unit of hair on a silk/ lace flat base and looks almost like a wig scalp. The closure is normally placed at the top frontal area of your head. 
This is a virgin hair silk closure.

There are many ways to apply a closure in which we will not discuss today. There are a few ways to customize the closure part. 

So, the 1st technique to make your part look realistic is the bleaching of the knots. (Say what? Whats a knot?) 
The knots are the little dark root fibers that connect the strand of hairs to the lace or silk base. Normally looks like black dots at the root. Most people take bleaching powder and 20-40 volume developer, mix it and apply to the lace or silk area for a few minutes. ( not to the actual side with hair) This method will lighten the knots and make the scalp of the closure look more realistic.

The 2nd technique is the tweezing method. This technique consist of you actually using tweezers and tweezing a few hair out of the parted line in the closure. This way you are pulling the undefined hairs out the part of scalp of the closure and it will blend better. No mess, no hassle. 

When you are done with your desired part area your closure should look like this in the completed stage.

Below is a step by step video on how to bleach knots on a closure.

I hope this was helpful and if you have questions or would like me to do a specific hair or makeup post about a topic leave a comment. 
Happy New Year Loves!
