Do you air dry or sit under a dryer?

Do you let your hair ➰air dry your or use a dryer? Chime in below! 👇🏾⠀

I typically air 🌬dry my hair. This time, my twists were still slightly damp 🤦🏽‍♀️and was running short on time ⏰. ⠀

So, I sprayed heat protectant on my hair then sat under my Gold N’ Hot Bonnet Blow Dryer blow dryer attachment with low heat and BOOM – dry hair!

Here’s the link to the dryer attachment I’m using in the pic! https://amzn.to/2Kfz7XP

DIY: How to Clean & Fix Your Broken Makeup Brushes

When was the last time you cleaned your makeup 💄 brushes? 👀

 Sis, I am not judging you 😂 We all get so busy with the daily grind that we may often forget about things like cleaning our makeup brushes! Think about it though – you invest in a skin care regiment with cleansers, toners, serums etc. but then put old dirty brushes on your face? 🤔 “Well Ruby, when you say it like that…” lol We want this skin to be pampered all the time including with clean brushes!

 

Even if you are not a skincare enthusiast or daily makeup wearer, you should still take the time to clean your brushes. Regardless if they are just sitting on your vanity or makeup pouch, they are still exposed to dust and germs before going on your face whenever you use them!

 

How frequently should you clean your makeup brushes?

Rule of thumb is you should clean your brushes once a week! To make it easy to remember, I would recommend doing it during your self-care Sunday. While you have on your facial mask,  give your brushes a “mask,” too!

 

How do I clean my makeup brushes?

In this video, I am going to show you how to clean your makeup brushes easily with items you probably already have in your kitchen!

 

How frequently do you clean your makeup brushes? Let me know below! 👇🏾

 

Beauty with Ruby Tip: If you have a great deal of product build up, make sure to use Dawn dishwashing detergent! It’s theee best to get out the bacteria, grease and grime!

Mask Monday with Ole Henriksen

Mask Monday essentials compliments of Ole Henriksen. I’ve been using their Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask for over a year now and love the results. So, when I learned about the launch of their new Dark Spot Toner, I was anxious to give it a try!

Hyperpigmentation is one of the challenges I face with my skin.  This toner boasts to reduce the look of dark spots, smoothes & brightens skin texture while targeting fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 7 days! After cleansing, I applied the Dark Spot Toner followed by the Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask and let it sit while poppin’ champagne! 🥂 for a in home spa treatment.

Babyyyyy I already love the results! Skin has a beautiful glow ✨, smooth texture without being irritated I have been using it about 3 days now and going to try it the full 7 days to see the full results! Subscribe to my blog for my final review!

Beauty with Ruby Tip:

Use the toner at night to maximize the overnight benefits. Apply sunscreen the next morning (🗣YOU NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN DAILY!) but especially after using this toner due to the active ingredients.

Do you use a toner as a part of your beauty routine?

Dipped Manicures are better than No Chip!

Real nails! 🙌🏾 For yearssss, I wore full sets. I kind of went backwards in adventurousness because in college I legit only wore clear gel overlay. Like dats it. No bright colors to express my youth 😂. No nothing …unless I was going on vacation then I’d get a bright color! 👙⠀

Then, I slowly but surely ventured into wearing colored polish but was still only pinks 💕and pastels. Now look at me, wearing black nails with a glitter ✨ nail to put some stank on it! 😂 ⠀

When no chip manicures came out, I loved the idea of them being better for your nails than acrylics and lasting much longer than a traditional manicure 💅🏾 I was hooked!⠀

Untilllll, I was introduced to dipped manicures by my cousin. Selena! Y’all, I’m👏🏾 never 👏🏾 going 👏🏾back! ⠀

Dipped Manicures:

  • Last 2-3 weeks
  • Application time is about the same amount of ⏰ as a no chip
  • No harsh UV ☀️lights
  • Super durable 🙌🏾 like an overlay!
  • No tools ⚒ to remove = better for nails
  • When you remove, nails are strong💪🏽 ! ⠀


Have you tried dipped manicure?
