I used to think primer was a waste of money. As long as I moisutrized my face properly then I wouldnt need primer…right? Well I was completely wrong! This weekend I had an event and I borrowed my friends Bare Escentuals makeup primer; my face was radiant!! I later tried applying my makeup without the primer and literally my foundation looked like it was going to peel because my face was so dry and also flat!.
Ive tried the Bare escentuals one and loved it; and Ive also tried Mac before and my face felt too wet. So I wanted to ask you all what do you think about primers and which one do you use!?
Here is the list of makeup primers listed in the photo. Let me know what you think!?

2. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer ($36)
3. Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer ($30)

My obsession with having long hair means I’ve tried just about every extension possible. My hair has been chemically relaxed for almost 10 years now. It’s extremely thick, dark brown( basically off black; color 1b) and it’s a little past my shoulders. Over the years I’ve experimented with several different hair extensions and decided to share a few tips and hair lango I have learned along the way. I’m African American so some of things will pertain to just my hair texture but most of these tips will be universal.
Virgin Hair vs Yaki/Silky: Any hair that is Yaki texture means its been processed to resemble African American textured hair. Virgin means that the hair has not been chemically treated at all; no color change and no texture change. This is great for those who want to dye their extensions; But beware of hair that says Virgin Malaysian Remy Hair, Or Virgin Peruvian Hair Yaki Textured. Both the words remy and yaki mean that the hair has been processed; in which case it is no longer virgin!
Teasing your hair: some people tease their hair to get it to look fuller and so that their clip in extensions can stay in place. But after a fresh perm this is a big No, NO. You need to wait until your hair has some new growth before you start clipping in your extensions; or if you’re really anxious wash your hair and blow dry it out so that the hair is a little thicker.
Sleeping in extensions: Do not sleep in your clip ins at all. It will pull on your hair. Also don’t sleep in bobby pins or duck clips. Anything metal at all will only irritate your scalp and pull at your hair. You don’t want to look like Kim Kardashian with a whole bunch of bald spots on your head!
Buying the right amount of clip ins: The longer your extensions the more hair you need. My hair is super thick /long and although I always buy clip ins that are 20inchs or longer I still need 2 ½ -3 packs of clip ins in order to have a full look.

Why I love them: the wefts are thick but they are placed so that they are really thin and so are the clips. Meaning they are so thin that they are easy to hide behind your hair.
What I Don’t like: They are a natural color; which is more off a dark brown (a shade lighter than my hair). So I’m going to have to dye them.
Hope these tips help!
Every tall woman knows finding a pair of jeans that are long enough is like finding a needle in a haystack!! I currently work for a denim company and have learned a few tricks of the trade that I thought would be great to share with you all!
