The main problem of my skin, besides the large pores, are blackheads. They are so annoying and sometimes it is so hard to get rid of them. I know many girls who are also struggling with blackheads and for different reasons blackhead removal strips don`t work on their skin, and just like me, they need to find other ways to remove them. For today`s post I started to prepare a very long time ago, because I wanted to tried all the recipes and different products, which claim to help with this problem. And I hope these homemade remedies and facial products will work for you as well.

Lime & Salt

The first recipe I`m going to share with you is one of the most effective and personally my favourite way to remove blackheads. It is a natural gentle scrub, which is very easy to do and anyone can find necessary ingredients at home. All you need for this is fine salt and lemon or lime. But first make sure you don`t have any irritations or opened wound (acne & pimples) on your skin. Take a small lemon piece and dip it in the fine salt, then very softly rub the place where your blackheads are situated. Just after the first procedure you`ll see an improvements of your skin - most of the blackheads will vanish! This mask also has a whitening effect and lemon acid will prevent re-occurrence of the new blackheads.

If you have an allergy or irritation on your face, you can substitute lemon and salt with baking soda and your favourite face wash product. 

Gelatin & Milk

Everyone knows famous drugstore blackheads removal strips and almost everyone tried them. This method is not only less expensive, but also works even better than the strips. So you``ll need to mix gelatin with milk and to put it in the microwave, until the gelatin will melt. Wait your mixture to chill, and put a thin layer on your problematic areas ( like T-zone, chin). When it will  dry, usually it takes 15 - 20 minutes, carefully remove it from your face. You will love the results ;)



Toothpaste & Toothbrush

If first two recipes I know for a long time and was using them frequently, toothpaste was a very big surprise for me. I`ve learned about it`s effects recently. There are lots of pros and cons of using these methods, so I don`t recommend it for those who has an extremely sensitive or irritated skin.  Buy a separated soft toothbrush for this and use any toothpaste you want. You`ll need to apply just a very small amount of the paste on the brush and gently rub problematic areas. Make sure to don`t apply it too close to your eyes to don`t irritate them.

Celebrity Skin Clarifying Skin Polish
And now I want to share with you some of my favourite beauty products, which help me to fight against blackheads on my face. These products I found the most effective and the most gentle for my skin.
Celebrity Skin Clarifying Skin Polish is a natural product, which combines 2 amazing properties - it is gently exfoliate dead skin cells, deeply cleans face pores and at the same time moisturizes the skin. This product is perfect for very sensitive skin, because it works very gently and doesn`t dry it at all. But the most amazing thing about Celebrity Skin Polish is it`s natural compound - apricot, avocado and coconut oils and crushed walnuts. All ingredients are organic, so they are very useful for our skin.

Garnier Pure Cleanser 3 in 1 face wash review skin care routine blackheads removal getting rid of blackheads whiteheads home scrubs against blackheads

Garnier Pure Cleanser 3 in 1 is my next favourite face wash against blackheads. This products could be used n three different ways - as a facial mask it absorbs an extra skin oil and leaves your skin matte, as a face wash it removes dirt and refreshes the skin, and finally as a scrub it perfectly removes blackheads. Garnier Pure Cleanser could be a bit rough for those who has a sensitive skin, but it works great for me. By the way, the consistency of this product is very similar to a toothpaste, what an interesting coincidence ;)

As you can see from the picture I use a facial massage brush to help the products to do their job. This particular brush is by german brand Ebelin, but you can find similar brushes in any drugstore or online beauty sites, like this Soft Cleaning Face Brush on BPS or this Skin Care Exfoliating Facial Brush, which I also use.

And the last, but absolutely not least product in my list is Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Oil Control. This product I like very much because it has a special rubber brush on the top of it`s tube. This brush was designed specially for removing of blackheads and whiteheads. The formula of the Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active contains salicylic acid, which not only helps to fight against blackheads, but also prevents their re-occurrence. 

What a huge post it was! Thanks everyone for reading it, I hope these products and masks will help you to reach a perfect smooth skin without any sign of blackheads. Please don`t forget to moisturize you face skin after every exfoliating procedure to keep it soft and healthy. I`ll talk to you very soon again, bye :*

Lots of love,

We all know how it is important to moisturize our skin to keep it healthy and young looking, especially in winter. And even though it is summer in Brazil now, I have started to prepare myself for the cold weather. That`s why today I will talk to you about the Verbena Hand Cream by Faberlic - anti-aging moisturizing hand cream suitable for all skin types.

winter essentials hand cream review blogger faberlic cosmetics

As you can see from the pictures above Verbena Hand Cream comes in a regular 75 ml cream tube with a beautiful verbena flowers on it. I was very pleased with the ingredients` list, just look what an amazing products Faberlic put in this pink tube : shea butter, which fights with aging and pigmentation, microcrystalline wax, which moisturizes the skin and verbena officinalis extract, which well knows for it`s healing abilities. 

This product has a very pleasant scent, I don`t know why but it smells like citrus to me :) The consistency of the cream is quite thick, so you`ll need just a little bit to moisturize both hands. It absorbs very well and does not leave greasy layer on the skin. I have been using this cream for few weeks already and I need to say that I love the results, my hands are very smooth and they don`t feel dry or flaky. 

The Verbena Hand Cream retails just for 3.15 GBP (about $4,7) and I think it is a very small price for such a great product. Unfortunately Faberlic doesn`t delver their products worldwide for now, so if you are interested in this product email me at liza.breygel@gmail.com Thanks for being with me ladies, I wish you to have a great day and stay warm this winter :*

Lots of love,
Liza

Big Anime Eyes Makeup Tutorial

liz breygel makeup tutorial big doll porcelain bjd doll eyes makeup tutorial

Hi angels! Recently I had an amazing opportunity to try out an eye enlarging circle lenses by Klenspo, so I decided not only to make a review for these Magic Eye Easel lenses, but also to create a makeup tutorial on how to create an illusion of bigger eyes, just like anime heroes and heroines have. All you need to do to recreate this Anime Eyes look is to follow few easy steps. 
liz breygel makeup tutorial big doll porcelain bjd doll eyes makeup tutorial

1. The very first step is to create a bigger `shape` for our eyes. Line up your eyes with a black eye pencil, stepping a bit out of your natural lash lines.

2. Set the eye pencil with black eye shadows using a small synthetic brush.

3. Now we will create a fake crease above our natural crease. I used navy grey eye shadow and added a bit of black to intensify the look.

4. The next step is to blend everything with a lighter blue eye shadow and add some liquid black eye liner.

5. Put some white eye liner on the water line and fill in the space above the fake bottom lash line. Don`t forget about the false lashes, this step will enlarge your eyes very much.

6. And the final step is optional. You can add some false bottom lashes or simply draw them with an eye shadow or sharp pencil, as you prefer. And our big anime eye makeup is done :)

Mac Eye Kohl / Review & Swatches

liz breygel mac cosmetics review eye kohl brown bronze black dark

Hi, girls! I`ve posted a little review for these Mac Eye Kohl pencils, but I decided to re-upload it on my blog with a new better pictures and more detailed review. I`ve bought these pencils after I ran off my regular drugstore eye pencil, because I wanted to try out if high-end liners work better than a cheaper ones. 

These little beauties named Smolder (black pencil 1,45 g / 05 oz) and Teddy (brown pencil 1.36 g / 0,48 oz). They come in a very simple but at the same time classy packaging. The tip of the packaging is colored in a shade of the pencil, so it is very easy to find the one you need in a makeup bag. I really like a regular pencils which you can sharp by yourself and create a desirable and comfortable shape. But at the same time I found them a bit hard to sharpen, as you can see from the pictures the tips on the pencils are a bit messy and don`t have a perfect shape (because of the creamy structure of the product).

Texture of Eye Kohl is very soft and blendable. It is easy to apply and to work with these eye pencils. Eye Kohl doesn`t irritate eyes so it makes this pencil suitable for sensitive eyes and you can apply it on the water line without any worries. Smolder is an intense black colour with a smooth matte finish, and Teddy is dark bronze shade with a bit of pearl finish in it, but I still found it suitable for filling my eye brows.

Overall, I`m pleased with the pigmentation and quality of Mac Eye Kohl. It has two great advantages, which I like the most - water resistance and long lasting formula.  Eye Kohl retails for $ 16.00 per each pencil, which is a pretty high price for such product, because I think it is easy to find a nice dupe for it. What you girls think about it?

Lots of love,
Liza

1. First of all we need to prime our eye lid and create a future eye shadow shape with a brown pencil, leaving the center of the eye lid empty

2. The next step is blending. With a synthetic brush we blend all the rough edges.

3. Now we need to apply eye shadow of the same colour, to set and intensify pencil`s shade.

4. On the center of the eye lid apply golden or bronze pigment and blend the transition between the colours.

5. Add some eyeliner and smoky it out with a black eye shadow. Don`t forget about mascara and your New Year Smoky Eyes are done :)
