I don’t know about you but when I was young I HATED my hair. I had a total disrespect for it, I treated it with contempt and didn’t care if it all fell out because who cared, i’d just wear a wig on top if it did… *fast forward to a few years ago* I then realized that my hair wasn’t the problem. It was my lack of knowledge of how to properly take care of it. And as you get older the more you realize how hard it is …

Beauty Insider: Old School Beauty Tricks That Still Work

Everyday beauty companies come up with different products (making huge money from us) that have been derived from a need in our beauty routine. Take for example, pencil eye liners; they usually get dry and when applied on the eye, you don’t really get the full impact. So the smart people at the beauty companies took this opportunity and came up with cream pencils, we have plenty of those around now. The truth is we still like the texture of the normal eye pencils that are not cream based, so we still buy them. I’m not saying our beauty companies are not doing a fantastic job, I’m just here to emphasize the point that when these new products weren’t available, the Audrey Hepburns of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s used simple beauty tricks to get their game on………lol. Lets get our moove (makeup + groove…..) back with these simple tips I’m about to share. There are so many old beauty tricks to share now and maybe if I’m nice, i’ll will let you in on others…..lol …
