Cleaning Your Brushes

*I use dishshoap with antibacterial & Olive Oil.( Olive oil makes the brushes SOFT & gets rid of makeup stuck on your brushes)

*Next, you pour some in a bowl/dish
*Dip a dirty brush into the soap & olive oil

* Add a little water & scrub against your palm & rinse with warm water

* & it's super clean!

* I like to roll it in toilet paper to catch the excess moisture and that way when it dries , it dries in a nice form instead of it being all ugly. ( Also, I place the brush upside down to dry so the water can drip down & not stay in the bristle because that causes they brush to break.)

* & Your done.! Here are some pictures of other brushes I cleaned.

Lip Exfoliant

                 *Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Sugar*                 
                  *Mix the Olive oil & sugar in a bowl
                  * With a toothbrush pick up a bit  & scrub as if you were brushing your                 
                   teeth  in circular motions for about 1 minute or 2.
                  * Rinse with warm water & pat dry with a towel.
                  * Optional* Apply Vitamin E Oil On your lips. Or Chap Stick

I do this about once a week to keep my lips smooth and pretty! The Olive oil Protects & Conditions your lips from being chapped and is a wonderful moisturizer. The Sugar as you scrub picks up all the build-up. The Vitamin E also helps prevent skin damage from free radicals & the suns ultaviolet rays. Vitamin E is an Antioxidant & Antioxidants are used in many products because they are believe to be anti-aging as well.


                      ***Try it out & I promise you will LOVE IT!

My nails done my Natali


Let me know if your interested she does SINALOENSE NAILS too. Her prices range from $30-50

Profusion 120 & 88 shimmer Palette

 Okay so my bf got me these as an EARLY x-mas present! Something I have always wanted and now that I have them I have to show you girls the awesome pigmentation! This is what they look like once you open them...
Aren't they cute! & wait for the swatches (with MAC PAINTERLY PAINT POD AS PRIMER)....dun dun dun
                This is the 88 shimmer palette. The circles are a bit small, but the quality is great. They don't have a scent to them unlike the 120 palette
                The 120 palette. Good huh? They look better in person thee flash doesn't give it justice. Still they look pigmented. The shadows are bigger then the 88 & they have a strong smell of baby powder. I don't care because they do the job =] & easy to work with. The top quads do not come like that they come stacked so, it comes on top of the square ones I just fixed it like that for the picture.
They are available at Ross & Walgreen's for a good deal GO CHECK THEM OUT BEFORE THEY RUN OUT!!

Xoxo, Yvette

Altieri Brothers

Okay, heres a quick video I found on Youtube of the 2 brothers! Don't they cut amazing! They took my breath away! Riccardo cut  mine & the girls in my class + another class in less than 2 hours! He cuts fast & YOU HAVE TO BE STANDING UP NO SITTING!

Altieri brothers

Okay, I got these two hair products when I attended the hair cutting class by Altieri brothers who are famous Hair cutters who own countless shops & have their own line of hair products & NOMINATED #1 FOR AWARDS. So I was dying to try their products luckily they gave us 3 BAGS OF FREE HAIR PRODUCTS! I was on top of the world!!! But i'm going to rave about these first.
( I am writing this exactly how it is in the back of the bottle so I am quoating without the "")
*Cleans with lipids & amino acids
*guaranteed not to fade color
*Absolutely NO sulfates
*Moisturizes & repairs as it cleans
*Infuses essential nutrients into hair
*Gives hair luster & shine

*Hydrates hair at the molecular level
*Infuses protein into hair follicle
*Guarenteed not to fade color
*Repairs & strengthens dry damaged hair
*Rinses clean with no residue
*Detangles and eliminates frizz

Now, i started using this when Riccardo Altieri cut my hair which was about 2 1/2 months ago. I started using it even tho my hair is not dyed and I have to say I Love it! My hair was soo damaged and this shampoo & conditioner has helped me out a lot. My hair is thicker and healthier(I don't flat iron my hair or blow dry it anymore/ it's weird when I do) and the shine is amazing I get complements from everyone. The shampoo smells like a Popsicle  & the conditioner smells like coconut. I remember riccardo saying they were made of coconut or something like that. & the consistency of the shampoo is AMAZINGLY THICK. Like I can put it on my hand and flip my hand over and it won't fall off. The conditioner is a little more runny. I have been using this shampoo since October 12 literally EVERYDAY! I let it sit on my wet hair for about 3-5 min before rinsing it off ( because no matter how much I try to wash my hair every other day I cant') and I am about half way with these two bottles. I only need about a dime size, but then again I do have short hair! So it has lasted me quite a while.  My hair has grown at least 2 to 3 inches since I started using them. I recommend & love them. I will buy more after I'm done with these. You can check out their website for more info BUT I don't think you can purchase off the site...you can try & contact them. I think the nearest shop is in Newport Beach Or somewhere in the OC. I don't know the price on the products because they were given to me for free.. HE DID HOWEVER TELL ME THAT I GOT $320 WORTH OF PRODUCTS FOR FREE.! & I am not getting paid to do this ( I wish ha!) it's my honest opinion because I really like what this is doing to my hair! I'll show You a picture of what else I got in my gift bags. Maybe I'll do a review on the rest hmmm I don't know I have to try out everything first!

(The razor & brush I bought myself with my money)
