Rosacea skin care routine

2017-03-09-21-26-01-794[1]

I still can’t believe that my face used to look like this. It was such a difficult time. Not just looks wise, but the itching and burning and the intense hot feeling all over! Rosacea is no joke. But I am happy to say that I figured out a way to keep my flare ups to pretty much zero and my skin is damn near flawless.

My routine is nothing out of ordinary. It’s very basic and simple. But it works.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition. They don’t know the cause and they don’t have the cure. And anything can trigger an outbreak, literally, anything. Certain foods, extreme weather, PMS, stress, crying, etc. Truly sucks.

My skin routine, although mainly catered to the fact that I have rosacea, anyone can apply this routine and the products. Even those without any skin issues.

About a year ago I had an outbreak and I refused to go back to antibiotics so I ventured out to a natural health store and the person recommended Sea buckthorne cream. It’s more of a vaseline like substance and this has been my saviour! This has kept my skin in check with no flare ups at all. It’s anti inflammatory and anti bacterial. It keeps my skin nicely hydrated and moisturized.

But check out my video right here if you’d like to see how I take care of my skin and the products I use, as well as more about the sea buckthorne, which I would recommend to everyone no matter what skin type or condition!!!!

 

My curly hair routine

2017-02-21-22-18-35-698

Hey lovely people.

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend. We are having some great weather here in Toronto which apparently hasn’t been been recorded in 38 years! Anyway, I wanted to share my curly hair routine with you guys, as well as products that I use and live by!

 

My hair has been doing amazing lately. Curls are back, and healing back very nicely. I am getting back that lively bouncy look! I am loving it!

My hair routine is very simple and straight forward, which is the best way to go about things. There are exceptions of course, as some hair is harder to maintain than other types and textures. It may need a bit more.

Here is my youtube video that shows you better than I can explain!!! Let me know, all my girls with curls, what products you use or some tips and techniques!

 

Curls and red lips lotd

I am so happy it’s Friday plus it’s a long weekend! 😃 My hair is cooperating today and I’m super tired so red lipstick definitely perks up my entire face and adds some brightness. 

I am wearing Como la flor from MAC Selena collection. Still loving this red. It seems to have a bit of gold shimmer to it but it’s not frosty by any means. 

The rest of my face is pretty simple with just some eyeliner and mascara.  

What have you guys got planned for the wknd? 

Oh and do check out my youtube channel! I’ll have a curly hair routine up a little later .

Valentine’s Day Make up- Daytime or Night look!

Happy Friday ! I  am so happy this extremely long week is finito! With Valentines day just around the corner I wanted to show you the make up look I love to do! Here’s some photos I took as well as my youtube video showing you step by step😋

I think Valentines day make up should be simple and soft. No big contrasting colours and not too much going on.

Soft tones to me are romantic and sensual looking. Soft pinks, purples and reds would work perfectly!

Do you guys have a go to valentines day look you do?

Hello loves! I’ve mentioned some time ago, ok a long time ago that I was thinking of starting a you tube channel and then I slacked off but I have finally done it! I am so excited because it allows me even more to be involved in all things beauty which is my passion, as well as be more interactive! I still have so much to learn in this whole you tube world but that’s also exciting. Oh and the name of my channel is Call Her Nina. 

I have done a few videos and I am trying to learn from each and do it better every time.
Here is the link to the video that I’ve done on “How to apply false lashes- EASILY AND QUICKLY” and from then on you can check out the other videos I’ve done as well!

Happy 2017!

Happy New Years everyone! I know I am a few days late but I want to wish everyone an amazing, healthy and successful year ahead.

I didn’t go out to on New Years Eve, just like the previous year and I always feel guilty for not celebrating. In my culture, New Years Eve is a big deal and you must go out and party and be festive, so I grew up always doing these over the top parties. In recent years, I don’t know if I am just old and boring but I don’t feel for it. Plus, it’s cold and everything is expensive and not fun like it used to be.

How did you spend your NYE?

Anyhow, this is one of the first make up looks I did in the new year. I am in love with this purple lipstick by LA Girl. It’s from their matte collection and it’s called Love Triangle.

2017-01-02-12-49-46-628

It’s a really vibrant purple with a blue undertone. (Yes I did change my chokers between pics because the gold one was scratching my neck! lol)

If I can say one thing that I don’t like is that it stains my lips bright pink! Like fuschia. And it stays on for the entire day no matter what.

2017-01-02-12-47-36-825

I picked up a few more of their lipsticks from the same matte collection and I am really happy with all of them. I will go back for more shades.

I also got a few of their lipglosses that I am not happy with at all and a highlighter that is really pretty but doesn’t distribute smoothly.  So maybe I’ll do another blog post as a review.

Have you tried any products from LA Girl Cosmetics?

Until next time! Nina xo

Happy Holidays 

Happy Holidays beautiful people! I hope all those who celebrate Christmas had a wonderful past few days and those who don’t still used the holiday season to get together with their loved ones and enjoy the time we have off work anyway lol

My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas in a religious sense but we definitely get together, sing and dance and exchange gifts. 

I’ve always wanted a white tree with just silver and glitter ornaments but white trees are so expensive and I could not justify spending over $200 for something I’d use once a year. However, I found this one at Walmart for much much cheaper and had to get it!

I got all the ornaments from the dollarstore and lights came with the tree. My heart was filled with joy haha 

I just had to share it with you guys!

Merry Christmas from us to you 💟

‘Tis the season 

Hello beautiful people! I wish you could see how golden and shiny my sweater is lol I love it. How appropriate for the holiday season, right? 

I did a beer rinse on my hair last night and as usual I love what it does for my curls. If you haven’t seen that post on my blog before, beer rinse serves as the cleanser for your hair.  It removes all the product build up and frees your hair from all the junk. 

I’ve also been loving this coral lipstick and how it makes my face alive cuz I’ve been tired and dull lately 😣
It’s YSL- Extreme Coral. 

What do you have planned for holidays???

Straight hair don’t care 😑

I rarely ever straighten my hair.  It’s truly a once in a blue  occurrence but lately it’s been so cold and I find that hats just look better on me when my hair is straight….does that make any sense? Lol 
Another thing I’ve noticed is when my hair is left natural, meaning curly I’ll have people say to me omg your hair is so nice but when I straighten my hair I’ll get wow you look so pretty….🤔 so im not pretty with my curly hair? Yeah….

My hair has been getting extremely  tangled lately which is also one of the reasons I straightened it. The knots I’ve been pulling out are unreal. Do you have any detanglers you recommend? Share please!
Anyway, I cannot wait to share my beautiful white Christmas Tree with you guys. I am so proud lol. 

Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday.
