Back-To-School Essentials

12 August, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

Summer break is winding down and it's time to head back-to-school.  While this is can be a sad time for many students, it can also be very exciting because it is a time to shop for new school supplies for the upcoming year! Below I have compiled a list of my favorite items for this upcoming school year.

 

1. New Backpack

I love this backpack from Target! It's both trendy and functional!

 

2. Laptop Sleeve

More and more schools are getting away from the traditional textbook and switching to laptops and tablets for their students.  That's why I love this laptop sleeve from Best Buy to keep your laptop or tablet safe while still looking cute!

 

3. New Notebooks

Instead of getting the plain and basic colored notebooks, get these cute notebooks from Office Depot to stand out in class!

 

4. Beauty Board

This beauty board from PB Teen is perfect to hang in your locker to use for little touch ups throughout the day. 

 

5. Dry Erase Board

The Container Store offers this amazing Slim Magnetic Dry Erase Board that is the perfect size for your locker so you can jot down upcoming assignments, practice times, or club meetings!



Hope everyone has a great first day back to school!

How To Get Fuller Lips!

17 June, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

Nowadays everyone is trying to obtain the perfect pout.  Below we have provided some quick and easy tips to help you achieve the look of bigger, fuller lips without lip injections or plumpers.

 

Exfoliate



Exfoliating increases the blood flow in your lips which actually creates a temporary swelling effect.  It also removes the dead skin cells from your lips which improves the overall look of your lips and leaves them nice and smooth.  You can use a toothbrush to lightly brush your lips and remove the dead skincells.  After exfoliating, remember to apply an unscented lip balm or petroleum jelly to restore softness. 

 

Apply Makeup



Pick a lip liner and lipstick that are within two shades of each other and blended together well to avoid creating an unflattering and harsh border around your lips.  Avoid dark, matte lipsticks as these often fail to create the same illusion.  Apply your lip liner just beyond your natural lip border.  Apply lipstick and blend the two together to avoid hard lines.

XOXO,
The Fancy Girl

Update from Nicole Khayat

The 2015 Next Face of Fancy Face Model Search has been our largest model search to date. We received over 3000 applicants, and while everyone was extraordinarily qualified for the position, we were only able to advance 231 to the final round. All 231 finalists truly exemplify what it is to be the next Face of Fancy Face, and we would be proud to have any of them on our team.

Due to circumstances out of our control, Twitter and Instagram have removed contestant photos from our accounts. We have been working with them on a solution, however as of 8am cst, they are still working on restoring the photos. In order to give everyone the same advantage, and not delay the process any further, we have made the decision to limit the 2015 Next Face of Fancy Face Search exclusively to Facebook.

I sincerely apologize for any confusion or stress this may have caused. I assure you, my team here at Fancy Face has been working tirelessly for months on this, and will not give up on making this year just as fun and exciting for the contestants as previous years. We are already developing solutions for next year's contest so we will not run into the same issues again. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

Sincerely,

Nicole Khayat

Tips To Go Green!

22 April, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

Happy Earth Day everyone! In celebration of our awesome planet we put together 5 ways you can Go Green and help the Earth!



1. Carpool/Ride Your Bike
Whether you're commuting to work or school find a way to cut down on air pollution.  Carpool with friends, walk, ride your bike, or utilize public transportation.  The less cars on the road = less air pollution and a better planet!

2. Recycle!
Sometimes we just forget and throw a piece of paper or a plastic water bottle in the garbage.  Put a recycling bin next to your garbage at home and/or at work to remind yourself next time to recycle instead of throwing something out.

3. Shorten Shower Times
Fun Fact: For every 2 minutes you cut from your shower time, you save more than 10 gallons of water.  If everyone in the country saved just one gallon from their daily shower, over the course of the year it would equal twice the amount of freshwater withdrawn from the Great Lakes every day.  That's a lot of water!

4. Turn Off Electronics When They're Not In Use
Invest in a power strip that allows you to turn it on and off.  Plug your electronics into it.  When you're not using those electronics simply turn the power strip off! It's really easy and prevents phantom electrical draw.

5. Invest In Reusable Cups and Totes
You can get them literally at any grocery store.  Spend a little extra cash and get yourself a travel coffee mug and reusable tote.  Some stores will even give discounts if you bring your own bag or cup.




XOXO,
The Fancy Girl


Eyebrow Shaping Tips

16 April, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

Eyebrows are trending right now! We've compiled a list of five tips to help you perfectly shape yours!



1. Decide on your eyebrow shape:  First and foremost, before you do anything decide on your eyebrow shape! Make sure to choose a shape that works with the shape of your face and looks flattering on you! Remember not to stand too close to the mirror when shaping, because you don't want to accidentally shape uneven brows! Take a step back so you can get the whole picture.  Step in once the shaping is done to get those pesky strays.

Pro Tip: Use concealer or a white eyeliner pencil over the hairs you wish to remove.  This way you won't accidentally remove too much.

2. Invest in good tweezers:  If you opt for the cheaper tweezers you might break the hair or the tweezer will slip off when removing the hair.  Invest in a good pair to save you time and unnecessary pain while tweezing.

3. Trim:  Sometimes you tweeze away the hairs that just need to be trimmed.  Trim the longer hairs to save you from potentially removing too much hair.

4. Clean the top:  Make sure you don't forget to tweeze above the top arch of your eyebrow.  This will make your eyebrow shape look more defined and cleaner.

5. Fill:  Use an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows.  Make sure you're choosing a pencil that matches your brow color so it looks more natural.

My Nighttime Skincare Routine

26 March, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

After a long day all you want to do is jump in bed and go to sleep, however, you can't do this without first properly taking care of your skin!  Below I have listed out my nighttime skincare routine.




Take off your makeup
This seems like a basic.  But sometimes people are feeling lazy and skip this simple step.  I love the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to easily remove your makeup.

Use liquid makeup remover
If I'm wearing a lot of eye makeup I like to go back over my eyes with the Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover with a cotton ball.  This will get any excess makeup that the towelettes may have missed.

Cleanse! Cleanse! Cleanse!
Next I'll wash my face with my favorite facial cleanser, Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser.  This is an all natural cleanser and it smells fantastic!

Use a toner
After using a cleanser, I wet a cotton ball with a toner and apply to my face.  The toner removes remaining cleanser and helps close your pores.  I like to keep my cleanser and toner the same brand, so for this I use Burt's Bees Rosewater Toner.

Moisturize
Finally, I like to moisturize to keep my skin nice and hydrated.  I use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer.


What is part of your nightly skincare routine?  Tell us below in the comments!


XOXO,
The Fancy Girl
