Are you keeping your makeup past it’s expiration date?Β 

Acne, infections, being sick, yuck! Do not fall victim to keeping makeup just because you feel it was expensive from the start. How long should you keep old makeup? ✍🏽 Save your face from the breakouts (it happened to me). I just threw away two mascaras I know were way over a year old. Now, I must part with other items I know are well beyond their FDA recommended shelf life on makeup βœπŸ½

We have included two links on this topic in the article. Again, do not fall victim. 

If you say, well Lioness, makeup is expensive! I say, order from hsn.com, qvc.com for items that you can pay flex payments (payment plan) on. 

Target’s Best Kept Secret purchase

I tried this combination makeup remover & facial cleanser from Neutrogena because it was on sale with my cartwheel app from Target, lol! This little gem really does take the night off, makeup speaking! I use this with baby wipes and follow with my, Dior Toner & CeraVe Moisturizing Cream before bed. It smells good and cleans wellπŸ˜‹βœπŸ½

Last Night in New Orleans

Soooo, 

You may or may not know that we are based in New Orleans, which gives us a unique view into the wonderful life of Carnival Season (Mardi Gras). Last night we began early with one of my Carnival Krewes, Krewe of Athena πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’š. Our mascot is the Owl and our colors are Lavender & Lime. Last night was the presentation and selection of 2016-2017’s Mardi Gras Queen for the Krewe of Athena. 

We had a blast, more importantly, my makeup was sweet! I have listed the makeup items used for last night look. Oh! Yes! My hair was definitely on point, thanks to my Hair Goddess Trishell Veals of First Ladies Salon in Chalmette, LouisianaπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’
