Manage The Mess: @SimpleSkincare Micellar Water Makeup Removing Wipes

Simple Micellar Wipes

Simple Skincare makes my favorite makeup wipes. I eased up using them in exchange for another one of their products, Simple Micellar Water, but when I found out about the Micellar Wipes I knew I had to give them a shot. These are just as good.

These wipes removed my makeup and didn’t make my skin feel gross afterwards. There’s no strange smell and they get the job done. I follow them up with cleanser but I’m not above a lazy day. I just try not to have them too often.

As I said before I’ve exchanged wipes for other makeup removing products, but I still think these wipes have their place. I love to use them when I’m having a swatchfest or need to clean up a palette because of fallout. Make up is messy business so having a wipe on hand keeps things like brush handles from getting too gross or foundation pumps from getting too dirty.

Are wipes part of your cleansing routine?

Simple Skincare Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes ($5.97) are available in various drugstores.   

What’s The Worst Beauty Advice You’ve Heard? #BuryMeMondays

What's The Worst Beauty Advice You've Ever Received BuryMeMondays

You’ve heard it. You’ve snickered at it. You probably tried it and learned from experience how wrong it was. So what’s the worst beauty advice you’ve heard?

The one that gets me is “reviving” your dried out mascara with eye drops. With mascara prices running less than $5 there’s no reason to revive anything. If for some reason your mascara is drying out before it’s time to replace it, return it, and may it never make its way into your shopping cart again. Ok? OK.

So let me know, what’s the worst beauty advice you’ve heard? Comments are always welcome and don’t forget to use the #burymemondays if you answer on social media.

The Beauty Blender: Truth or Hype? #BuryMeMondays

Beauty Blender Truth or Hype

The Beauty Blender. Is it an egg-shaped beacon of light or just another makeup sponge? I happen to love mine to the point that I stopped using brushes for a long time. Others don’t see the big deal or are happy with cheaper options from other companies. Where do you fall on this spectrum? Is the Beauty Blender everything you’ve ever wanted in makeup application or a hyped up, overpriced, colored sponge?

The Original Beautyblender is available at beautyblender.com, Sephora.

What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays


My first foundation was a Cover Girl one in Soft Sable. I have no idea how good or how bad it looked but I remember using it, eventually hitting pan and purchasing it again. Not long after that I bought a pink Caboodles organizer and my dad let me order things from an Avon rep he knew. That foundation got the ball rolling for me when it came to makeup. I probably looked like a fool but there aren’t any pictures so I’ll pretend I was cute. 😉 Continue reading What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays
