My Favourite Dewy Skin Products, For Oily Skin! | GimmeMyMascara

For as long as I can remember, my skin has been oily. And, I mean, OILY, like fry some chicken nuggets on my nose in the summer kinda oily, gross, I know. (The skin, not the nuggets, those are always delish.)

Imagine my shock when I came to realized that I was actually interested in trying out some dewier skin care products this summer… I was in Pakistan a few months ago and the extreme heat was really HELPING my skin… it was the strangest thing but the hot, humid weather was pulling all the dirt and oil out of my skin , leaving my skin at it’s all time best! Woo Hoo! I got back to Canada a while ago and the cold air wasn’t helping to preserve my new supermodel skin, so I decided to try out some new products to help add that glowing goddess look back! unnamed

The first product that I’ve been using RELIGIOUSLY for the past few months, morning and night, is the Bobby Brown EXTRA Face Oil. I’ve always been terrified of face oils and my traumatic experience with the Tarte Maracuja Oil wasn’t helping… Continue reading

Planner Addict Tag | Gimmemymascara

Welcome Back! I recently saw Elle Fowler and Belinda Selene create the planner addict tag, and I thought I would answer some of the questions for you here! Enjoy.
IMG_17181.) How many planners do you have/own?

I usually switch planners at the start of every school year, not calendar year, and I’ve used a planner since the first grade, you do the math. I’m pretty sure my mom has kept a few of my planners from grade school, but I’m not sure where they are right now… I do have my high school planners and the ones I’ve used since the start of University. Here’s what my planner from 2012 looks like, I was in my senior year of high school! I found this gem at PINK by Victorias Secret and we had a lovely time together. Fun Fact: I only started using the monthly view page of my planners this year, I use to find them so strange before! LOL

2.) How many planner do you actually use at one time?

One! I use my planner to eliminate stress and anxiety, having more than one would be totally counterproductive. To see the planner I’ll be using starting August 2015, click HERE.

3.) When did you first start using a paper planner?

First grade! I started real young.  Continue reading

The Beauty Blogger Tag | GimmeMyMascara

You’re probably asking yourself a million questions right now, who is this Gimmemymascara girl? MEWhat’s she like? What’s her story?  I’ve decided to share myself with you by answering a list of Beauty Blogger related questions. Without further ado, here we go!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? 

Neither. It’s uncontrollable and has a mind of its own. It can be pin straight one day and VERY wavy the next.. Sometimes it likes to play along and dries into soft waves.

2. What is your natural hair colour?

Dark brown, almost black!

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

A salon, always.

4. How often do you wash your hair?

About 2-3 times a week, which is scientifically the healthiest for your hair (at least that’s what twitter said. ;)) The other days I just spray in some dry shampoo and I am good to go! To read about my full hair care routine, click HERE.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?

I think the whole point of beauty and fashion is self expression. I love my basic pieces and do have a defined style to a degree but I am always willing to try something new, especially with my makeup! Continue reading
