Today I want to share with you my personal tips to stay organize with style! It took me a minute to find the “perfect” backpack, without feeling guilty for my wallet. I agree with ‘you get what you pay for’. Adding a few good items to your outfits will always make a great outfit! You can have a $5 dollar shirt nicely paired with some good shoes, or in today’s post. A backpack!/Hoy quiero compartir con ustedes mis consejos personales para estar organizadas con estilo! Me llevó un minuto encontrar la mochila “perfecta”, sin sentirme culpable por mi cartera. Estoy de acuerdo con ‘tienes lo que pagas’. ¡Agregando algunos artículos buenos a sus traje hará siempre un gran traje! Puedes tener una camisa de $ 5 dólares muy bien emparejado con algunos buenos zapatos, o en el caso de hoy. ¡Una mochila!

So here are some tips I look for when I shop for a purse backpack to stay organized with style, and a quick short how to./Así que aquí hay algunos consejos que busco cuando compro una mochila de monedero para quedarme organizada con estilo, y cómo.

  1. Check your daily routine. This really helped learn how to stay organize in the first place. Once you figure out your daily routine, you can start incorporating what you need and what you don’t need.Averiguar su rutina diaria. Esto realmente me ayudó aprender cómo mantenerme organiza en el primer lugar. Una vez que averigüe su rutina diaria, puede comenzar a incorporar lo que necesita y lo que no necesita.
  2. Now that you’ve figured out your daily routine. Example: What you ACTUALLY use from your purse. You can now go search for your perfect backpack purse that will fit your daily things and with style!/Ahora que has descubierto tu vida de rutina diaria. Ejemplo: Lo que REALMENTE utilizas diariamente de su bolso. ¡Usted puede entonces ir a la búsqueda de su monedero perfecto de la mochila que cabrá sus cosas diarias y estilo!

***Depending on what you ACTUALLY use daily from your purse, and daily routine you can figure out the size of your backpack***/*** Dependiendo de lo que REALMENTE utilizas diariamente de su bolso, y la rutina diaria usted puede  calcular hacia fuera el tamaño de su mochila ***

  • Comfortable enough for my daily routine. Meaning. Easy access for my phone, car keys and at the same time feeling safe my phone and keys won’t fall out and lose them. (ex. left image of my backpack. It has a side zipper that fits my phone or just my keys. It’s perfect for when I’m walking back to the car, I don’t have to look around for keys.)/Lo suficientemente cómodo para mi rutina diaria. Es decir. Fácil acceso para mi teléfono, llaves del coche y al mismo tiempo me sienta segura que no se caen y perderlos.(Por ejemplo, la imagen de la izquierda de mi mochila tiene un cierre para mi teléfono o sólo mis llaves, es perfecto para cuando estoy caminando de vuelta al coche, no tengo que buscar las llaves).
  • Decent quality. After purchasing about three different backpack purses in under a year, because they simply wouldn’t last. I realized I could have purchased one for the price of all three. So, don’t be too cheap with the backpack. At least if you really want it to last, or if you will be carrying valuable items, such as a camera! (That would be me.) /Calidad decente. Después de comprar cerca de tres diferentes mochilas en menos de un año, porque simplemente no duraban. Me di cuenta de que podría haber comprado uno por el precio de los tres. Por lo tanto, no ser demasiado barato con la mochila. Al menos si realmente quieres que dure, o si va a llevar objetos valiosos, como una cámara! (Ésa sería yo.)
  • Size! I don’t always leave my house with my big, fat planner, but if I need to, you bet I made sure it fit inside my backpack before purchasing! And at the same time small enough for the days I don’t need to pack it!/¡Tamaño! No siempre salgo de mi casa con mi grande planificador, pero si necesito, claro que me aseguré de que cupiera dentro de mi mochila antes de comprar! Y al mismo tiempo lo suficientemente pequeña para los días que no es necesario empacar mi planificador!

How I stay organize./Cómo me mantengo organizada.

  • As a women, we have multiple random small items. Such as lip balm! So I like to put things in their place, and use other smaller bags for my backpack purse. This is why it’s important figuring out your daily routine./Como mujeres, tenemos múltiples artículos pequeños. Como el labial! Así que me gusta poner las cosas en su lugar, y el uso de otras bolsas más pequeñas para mi monedero mochila. Esta es la razón por la que es importante averiguar su rutina diaria.
  • H&M has the cutest little bags! I have some just for tampons for those days, and hardly take space. Makeup & beauty essentials in another!/¡H & M tiene las bolsas pequeñas más lindas! Tengo algunos sólo para los tampones para esos días, y apenas ocupan espacio. Maquillaje y belleza esencial en otro!
  • Pack what’s necessary, or what you might ACTUALLY need. Such as sunglasses. I personally can’t leave without my Ray-Ban sunglasses with my prescription. My eyes tend to be sensitive to the light. Or if I’m wearing contacts, I pack the little case with clean, new solution. It’s something I most likely won’t need, but could end up needing!/Empeque lo que es necesario, o lo que realmente podría necesitar. Como gafas de sol. Yo personalmente no puedo salir sin mis Ray-Ban gafas con mi receta ocular. Mis ojos tienden a ser sensibles a la luz. O si llevo contactos puestos, empaco el estuche con solución nueva y limpia. Es algo que muy probablemente no necesite, pero podría terminar necesitando!

PS: You can change the “?” key-chain, which I find super adorable I can change it to any other key-chain./PS: Puedes cambiar el llavero “?”, que me parece super adorable, puedo cambiarlo a cualquier otro llavero.

My favorite eyelash curlers

Shiseido eyelash curler

Do  you struggle with eyelash curlers? Today I’m going to talk about my long term favorite eyelash curler, current favorite and a new one I’m trying. In my previous post about lashes + mascara (to read about it click here ) I talked about the time of my discovery about eyelash curlers, my favorite mascara, and even the tragedy I went through when I used a very cheap eyelash curler. Don’t get me wrong, some cheap stuff are good. I love saving! But I quickly learned not be so cheap when it comes to my eyes. Affordable sounds better! So I want to share with you my favorites and personal tips.

Let’s get started.

Note: Please know this post includes affiliate links. Meaning, If you decide to buy any resource through the link I provide to you. I get compensated at no extra charge to you! A more detailed disclosure policy is coming soon! Thank you for your support!

First of all, NO! I haven’t tried every eye lash curler. There’s too many! And if you read about my favorite mascara  . You’ll discover why I’m very picky about my eyelash curler. The eyelash curlers I’ve found, keep my lashes curled all day, and when curling my lashes it fits my eyelid perfectly! Which is very important. This way you’re actually curling every eyelash, and not leaving a few out. I’ve notice that when you leave a few out, they don’t turn out evenly curled, so when using an eyelash curler that doesn’t fit the eyelid, you’ll have a harder time achieving that evenly natural curl look. When applying mascara to uneven curl lashes, it can also get messy. You’ll end up with a short lashes look. That weird, spider look.

1. Tweezerman! This eyelash curler has been my favorite for years  now! Can’t go wrong with it, plus it’s so affordable. Pad is long lasting, hypo-allergenic, and silicone. This eyelash curler fits my lid perfectly! I personally love the ones that come in a pack. It’s perfect for a forgetful person like me. You don’t want to keep the same one forever. Take care of your lashes girl!!

2. MUD (Makeup Designory). Professional quality, also another of favorites! I like to switch between Tweezerman and this one. They both give me the same results. Both of the brands have silicone pad, and both fit my eyelid perfectly! Which is key to achieve those natural looking curl eyelashes.

3. Shiseido! This one is new to me. I’ve heard great things about it, so I decided to purchase it and try it out myself. This is a great one for my Asian girls. In fact, when I worked cosmetics, this eyelash curler was always selling. The material is great. However, Tweezerman remains my main!

 Why do I love these eyelash curlers?

  1. The pad is great quality. Which give long lasting curl results for my thick, straight lashes.
  2. The metal construction is great! Fits the eyelid great, which is key when curling the lashes. This way, I can curl little by little to the end of the tips of my lashes. I start gently, and repeat as I go. I will talk more in detail about it in a future post.
  3. Professional results.

Things I look for before I try a new eyelash curler, or do before curling my eyelashes.

  • I close it tight a good 2-3 xs before going to the eyes – This is my way of preventing any future accidents to my eyelashes. I like to squeeze the pad a few seconds before use.
  • Check the metal construction! Especially when trying a new one. Sounds weird, I know. But I’m very mindful about this! After accidentally pulling ALL of my  eyelashes from my left eyelid, I now make sure the metal material, and the feeling of the grip when holding an eyelash curler is in good shape or quality.
  • No-stick pad
  • Avoiding oils, hand creams, or anything that will cause my hands to feel greasy prior to curling my eyelashes.
  • Replacing my eyelash curler frequently, and the pad as well. Once it gets old, if you pay attention, you start to kind of force your eyelash curler to get tighter when curling, this can cause damage to your lashes! #protectyourlashes girl!
  • Clean any residue from previous use, and Sanitize! Can’t explain this one enough. I shouldn’t have to go into detail for this one. Just be mindful about it. When you’re curling your eyelashes, you’re getting very near to your eyes! Also, you don’t want something like, previous mascara residue pulling your lashes. You never know! It’s better to be safe.
  • Make sure it fits my eyelid! If it feels funny, I don’t bother risking it.

 Remember, take care of your eyelashes to keep them healthy for long lasting, beautiful lashes. I hope you found this post helpful!

“My favorite IM Mascara and why YOU need to try it!”

 

“I swear, whenever I interview any Mexican celebrity, they say that they love this mascara,” says Lopez. “It’s infused with mamey-seed oil.”

The fruit is loaded with vitamins and helps condition lashes. –

InStyle November 2015 Issue: Beauty International Shopping List

My favorite mascara is starting to expend! And thanks to Theebella.com I don’t have to ask someone to bring me a tube from my country. Along with Amazon, where I literally purchase everything. A few years back, I would have never imagined that I would be writing about the mascara that changed my LIFE! Literally. Here’s the thing about being a girl. We all LOVE beautiful long lashes. We admire and even envy those with the most beautiful natural lashes. So, I fell in love with this mascara by mistake. Let me tell you the story behind why and how I lost ALL of my eyelashes from my left eyelid, and how this mascara brought them back to life.

Note: Please know this post includes affiliate links. Meaning, If you decide to buy any resource through the link I provide to you. I get compensated at no extra charge to you! A more detailed disclosure policy is coming soon! Thank you for your support!

It all started the day I learned about an eyelash curler. That thing looked so scary!! I was under the age of 15. I wasn’t lucky enough to have natural curl lashes. My eye lashes are straight as my hair! But they’re actually not short, which is a plus. I just needed an eyelash curler + mascara in my life and boom! Life complete, or so I thought. The second I dominated how to use an eyelash curler, I applied the first mascara I got to my hands. To my disappointment, a few seconds after applying mascara to my curl lashes, my eyelashes went back to straight! The curl was gone. They didn’t even last a minute. At first I thought it was the mascara, so I begin to purchase different brands thinking I would find the one! You guessed it. I never found the one, at least not at the time. So, I begin to do what I like to call “tiplash” trick. It’s when I only applied mascara to the tips of my eyelashes, that was the only way my lashes remained curled. I still use this trick to this day, just differently. Which I will talk about in a different post.

Long story short. One day while I was in my country, with the eyelash curler I accidentally pulled off almost ALL of my eyelashes from my left eyelid. I should of never applied body lotion to my hands before curling my lashes, and I shouldn’t have been so cheap with my eyelash curler at the time. Girl, I’m telling you. I almost cried. I applied thick eyeliner and I was glad I had glasses!

All concerned, I asked my friend if she noticed anything and finally after telling her the truth behind my question, she laughed a little bit and said “Izamar! Just use this mascara and they will grow back to normal!” … Say what now?

Yes! Made with Mamey seed oil. This mascara helped my lashes grow back! Now, you might be wondering how I even applied mascara to an eyelid with  no lashes? Well, I literally begin to apply this mascara to my few chopped lashes. I also applied it to my right eyelid lashes. Expecting my lashes to lose their curl, to my surprise they DIDN’T. I waited to see. Waited, waited, waited and waited and OMG! My lashes remained nice and curled. Not even just curled, but actually the way I curled every one of them with the eyelash curler. That was my first experience of LOVE at first TRY with cosmetics. My lashes grew back to normal, quick and beautiful.

So what’s the secret behind the mascara? The answer is simple. Mamey Seed Oil + more. You can learn more about it in the link below.

Benefits of Mamey Seed Oil Mascara

So here are a few things from theebella’s site. Where they specializes in high-quality products that are not easy to find in the U.S. market.

  • All made with 90% natural ingredients

  • Mascara with Mamey Seed Oil.

  • TheeBella’s #1 selling product was recently featured by InStyle magazine as one of the best international beauty products. The secret ingredient to this mascara’s formula is the mamey-seed oil. Mamey-seed oil conditions your lashes and helps them grow thicker and longer.

  • These products have never been tested in animals and they promote the protection of the environment

  • natural organic oils, antioxidants and mineral plant extracts and hypoallergenic formula that is enriched with vitamin E.

     

It truly makes me proud to blog about my favorite mascara! Not only because it changed my life, but because it comes from my own country and as a new beauty blogger, Mexican born. This post is a dream.

And girl, or gentlemen if that’s the case. If you yourself, or someone you know struggles with lashes like mine. Have lost their lashes, have thin lashes or simply want longer, healthier and thicker lashes. Tag them to this post! And did I mentioned the price? You can find it for $6 dollars up to $10. Depending where you purchase it. The price is so affordable, it’s worth the try! Be patient with the mascara. Magic won’t happen one day to another, but if you have a hard time keeping your lashes curled, magic WILL happen. I love to use this mascara as a base before false lashes, and even just as my mascara base to maintain the lashes curled and then use my “tiplash” trick with other mascara brands if I want to be more dramatic. I hope you found this helpful.

To learn more about this mascara, you can visit www.theebella.com where you can also purchase it, or if you have an Amazon account, you can purchase it there too.

Wigs & Fake Tattoos

<3

 

 Something slightly different! I love every kind of beauty, look, and style. I find beauty in EVERYTHING & EVERYONE. What inspired my look? My FEAR for needles! I’ve always wanted a tattoo, or multiple tattoos I should say. The fear of fainting stops me. Dragging me to the Doctor gives me enough anxiety. So, I really wanted to create a sexy tattoo look. I think I nailed it!!

Product details below…

I’m telling you guys, it’s all about knowing your angles! Once you nail it down, you can become your own photographer and get amazing photos!

The products I used for my eye shadow:

Modern Renaissance by ANASTASIA:  Raw sienna, Burnt orange with a bit of Realgar for the crease.

For the lid, I used Better Together TOO FACED + KAT VON D palette in the color “Yours” from Kat Von D’s side. I also applied the same shadow for the lower lash line.

I then added (using my ring finger) “Swoon” in the center of my lid. 

The eyeliner for my waterline: Clinique High Impact custom black kajal.

Mascara: Clinique’s Lash Doubling in black.

For the Browbone Highlighter & Tearduct, I used the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D in {Pink} opal.

I then decided to add the Alchemist Holographic Palette in {pink} opal over the shadow of my lid and for the lower lash line I added {ultra-violet} amethyst, which is the reason the colors changed. Which I was happy with.

Lips: NYX lip liner in Burgundy 803. Matte lip color by Lorac in Merlot & Potion lip gloss by ANASTASIA

FAKE TATTOOS

I order a few fake tattoos from tinsleytransfers.com They are okay for fun! But if you really want to fool someone, probably not your first choice. I added powder right over them, to reduce some of the shine for the camera. However, I had some Pro Transfer Tattoos left from Temptupro and added those last minute too. Which I prefer.

Literally OBSESSED with the Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D. I can change colors with just a little bit of the highlighter. I mixed {Ultra-violet} amethyst & {Pink} opal together for my cheek bones.

The wig is from 7-mile Fashion.  They have affordable fun wigs. Perfect for beginners, customs or just for fun. I usually go the one on Lake Street.

They have two other locations.
