All about eye makeup removers

Sometimes at night when you are ready to go to bed, you just want to go to sleep and not spend time taking your makeup off and washing your face but we have to make this into a daily routine since we all know that makeup that stays on for a long time can cause acne, premature aging and even eye infections, sties, irritation, etc.  That is why we all need a good makeup remover.

Today, lets talk about eye makeup removers in particular.  I’ve tried a couple of different eye makeup removers.  Keep in mind, I always use waterproof mascara and long lasting eyeliner.

1 - Mary Kay oil free eye makeup remover has been my ultimate favorite for years now.  It takes off even waterproof mascara with ease.  It is super gentle.  It sells for $15 for a 3.75 fl. oz.  You can get it on or through an independent consultant.   If you dont have a consultant and want to order online, get it through our consultant at !

Black Hair .... To be or Not to be

Hi Ladies! Todays topic will be about black hair.  I’ve been dying my hair since I was about 18 years old.  My first dye was highlights.  After that, I found love in black hair!  Since then I’ve dyed my hair black with permanent dye and through the years ive found out some pros and cons.  If you’re thinking about whether to go black or not, this will definitely help you out :)  

Makes your hair look very healthy and shiny.  I used to get compliments all the time about this. 
Looks beautiful in pictures! 

The only ONLY Con:
Black is the most difficult color to try to take off.  The only way to do it is to go a very good hair colorist but can be damaging to your hair. 

My experience: 
There came a time when I wanted to dye my hair light again just to change it up a little bit.  Little did I know that it was going to be a long tough process.  I went to my hairdresser and she had to do highlights on my hair about 2 times before it actually started lightening up.  Funny thing is that the top of my hair grabbed the highlights but towards the ends of my hair it was still black!  I had to go back several times to try to take the black out.  My hair later on was light again but I gave in and a few months later I dyed it back to black.  I just love it!!  Ive done this process several times but I always seem to want to go dark again.  Now, my hair is brown not black :(   Since I’m getting married I prefer to have it lighter than just simply black even though I think its beautiful.  What do you girls think?  Tell us your stories.
