Introducing Beauty By Viva La Qbee03

Hello Everyone. Every week my friend and LS (sorority line sister) will be bringing you some hot skincare and makeup tips. She just started her blog called Viva La Qbee03! I am so proud of her because she has wanted to do this for some time, and now she is! YAY! Don’t forget to check out her blog and follow her blog and YouTube account. She has some great videos coming soon.

Skin care is sooo important. It is even more important during the summer months that are ahead. In the video I share with you my nightly facial routine as well as the 4 steps to healthy skin. One step that isn’t listed is DRINKING WATER! I know that everyone doesn’t love water, but your skin loves it. If you do not already try to drink some water daily, you should definitely start. You can start off by drinking the aquapods or small bottled water at first. I am not saying that you should just wake up one day and drink 8 glasses of water. It is a process and your skin will thank you for it. 🙂
Four Steps
Neutrogena Deep Clean Relaxing Nightly Scrub
Cetaphil Moisturizer
Neutrogena 45 SPF Sunblock
FCC: I bought all of these products myself. No one sent me these products to review.

Winter Cat Eyes

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
This week I wanted to do something different. I wanted to bring you all some guest posts from beauty bloggers, so you could get some great winter beauty tips. Today’s post comes from Felicia York.

We all have those days…Monday has approached us full speed ahead and the weekend’s debauchery is not quite behind us. We’re tired and we look tired. It’s one thing to be one without looking the other. Many women think the trick to looking younger or looking well-rested is to add Here’s a quick trick to looking alive when all you want to do is crawl under a rock.
The Cat Eye
So easy to achieve an even easier to take from day to night. The cat eye is basically liquid eyeliner that has been winged at the outer corner of the eye. By keeping the focus at the top of the eye, you’re drawing attention away from any bags or dark circles that are lurking under. Keep liner and mascara at the lower lash line very basic – just enough to define the eye. Stay away from smokey looks as they’re too heavy and will bring out darkness or bags you may have. Concealer is you friend! Make sure you have the right one to cover up the under-eye tell tale signs that you didn’t get a full 8 hours last night. Make sure to moisturize skin and drink plenty of water to look hydrated. For a daytime look, keep skin and lips as nude as possible. If you must use a blush, use one that gives you a natural flush (soft pink) or a bronzey glow.  To take from day to night, add a sexy lip color and voila!  Pretty and easy!Photos from DLB.
