The Two-Tone Lip Trick. Quickie:

By Tia Cristy

Quickie: The Two-Tone Lip Trick.

I usually don’t write about myself so matter-of-fact, but I was asked this question several times about, how do I do my two-tone lipstick? and how can others do the same to make it look good? That’s very kind and thank you for asking. I’ll tell you how and why I do the two-tone lip.

First the why, I’m very big into shading and definition when it comes to art and life, so why not with makeup as well. I like playing with dark colors, but I have a very fair complexion, so bold, one dimensional lips can wash me out instantly. Adding a shading element can allow me to play with colors, whether it’s being bold or subtle.

Now the how. To get the two-tone look is really quite simple. It’s 3 easy steps.

Step One: Apply foundation on lips to keep the lip liner from bleeding.

Step Two: Choose your favorite lip liner and apply. Then, press and smear into the the foundation. This gives you a two-tone look immediately. Be sure to blend it in so it’s not just a distinct line around your lips. Remember shading is the key.

Step Three: Apply a neutral or clear gloss to the lips and press together. Blend where needed. Don’t forget to blot.

And, there you have extreme lip definition with a two-tone lip.

Healthy Hair. Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: Healthy Hair.

One of the biggest questions I get is, how to get beautiful, shiny hair. There are a ton of products on the market. But, my first suggestion to trigger healthy hair is from the inside. A great thing to add to your diet is flax seeds.

Flax seeds have many medical benefits, which is a plus for those trying to reap the physical benefits, like great strong hair and beautiful healthy skin.

Sprinkle flax seeds in any food. Add to yogurt, pastas, soups salads, etc. They have a good light flavor and help with food digestion.

People Can’t Change. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: People Can’t Change.

You’ve heard the sayings, “A leopard can’t change it’s spots” or “a Tiger can’t change it’s stripes”. Okay, but the one that is really not true is, “A person can’t change”.

People aren’t animals. People can evolve with their attitudes, emotions, mentality, spirituality and even physically. Change is inevitable for humans.

If a person continues to behave in a way that is unacceptable, and you think, a person will never change, it’s actually an individual being stubborn according to scientific studies. As a person, we desire and welcome positive changes in our lives and patterns. A person that refuses to change their patterns, is actually working really hard to stay that way; instead of allowing themselves a natural positive progression of life.

Example, a person of a younger age is able to stay up, be out all night, still work an 8 hour day the next day and attempt to go out again that following night. A person fighting the aging process will try to do the same thing and become extremely irritable and possibly make it through the night, but have to call out of work the next day. Even if they can make it through the event, their bodies can’t keep up. The change is inevitable. Don’t allow yourself to fall victim of the mid-life crisis.

Another example, a young adult can make one thing their number one priority. Yet, after life experiences and changes; their priorities are inevitably going to change because they, themselves have inevitably changed.

If you or someone you know has been labeled as lazy, greedy, a liar, selfish, petty, a thief, a cheater, a gossip, mean, childish, etc. there is always an opportunity for change. These are not personalities, but have become habits, and habits can be broken if desired.

So, if you find yourself in a rut or self-esteem has taken a hit; remember it will change and so will you. Let changes build your character, not crush it. And, if you have been labeled as a person the will never change, stop being stubborn and make a conscious decision to grow in life. It’s natural to evolve and change in a positive way.

Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.

By Tia Cristy

Hands the Same Color as the Easter Eggs? Remove Dye from Hands.

Problem: Tia, how do you get dye off the kids hands after dying Easter eggs?

Tip from Tia: Having a blast coloring eggs for Easter with the kids, is a lifetime memory. But, you don’t want the kiddos to have that color on the hands by the time Easter pictures roll around.

A quick way to remove the dye from their hands, without using anything too abrasive, is peroxide. Take the kids over to the sink, have them cup their hands and pour peroxide into their hands and have them rub together.

(Side Note: Make sure they don’t have any large cuts on their hands. Warn child of the funny tingling sensation while applying; give them a heads up if they’ve never experienced an un-painful use of peroxide)

Let it sit on the hands for a couple seconds to a minute, rinse and then wash with soap. Repeat process if necessary.

Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy

Being Negative, Can Trigger Negativity, Tips on Triggers:

Have you ever made a negative comment and noticed it effected the people around you to become negative too? It’s contagious. Though you may not have meant to change the mood, it can instantly happen. The conversations can quickly snowball into negativity. Doing this too frequently can cause a long term negative outlook on your life, which can result in depression and other mental aliments.

So if you find your self having a negative thought or saying a negative comment, try to follow it up quickly with a positive response or thought. For example, “This weather sucks!” follow it up with something like, “I was so glad I didn’t need to stop for gas today to get to work, that was great!” or “Look at the way that person is dressed!” follow it up with something kind like “but, I really like those shoes. I’ll have to go shoe shopping soon.” Doing this will help you be less negative, yourself and to help the mood of those around you.

Even though negativity is contagious, remember so is happiness. Force yourself to have a positive outlook and soon, it won’t have to be forced.
