My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Pinterest Finds: Does It Work? #1

Monday, 9 June 2014

I have come up with a running series, to take place every monday, where I find and test out DIY projects from Pinterest. As a Disclaimer: I am not setting out to disprove DIY finds, or insult their creators, just to try them for myself and see if they work for me.

For an inaugural post I have found a Face Mask to remove blackheads. This post originally posted on Fastmaza Here.

I deal with blackheads, like everyone probably does. By no means do I have problem skin, just a couple of patches with blackheads around my nose and in-between my eyes.

The recipe calls for 2 egg whites and a teaspoon of lemon juice. I modified this to reduce waste by only using 1 egg whites and half a teaspoon of lemon juice.

The website claims that egg whites are known to harden over time, while lemon juice contains natural acids to help remove the blackheads.

After mixing the ingredients and applying the mask to my problem areas I let it harden for 20 minutes.

After letting it harden for 20 minutes I removed the mask in pieces, peeling it off, not using a wash cloth- like the website instructs.


The mask did not peel off in pieces, I needed to rub it off (After a 20 minute drying time)

I saw no major differences, less visible blackheads were noticed.

This mask was kind of bust for me, perhaps it was the alterations I made to the recipe that is to blame.

Have you tried any pinterest masks? Do you find they work? Let me know in the comments!

Eggs seem too thick to penetrate the skin. I'm interested to see how this mask works for others.

I have yet to try Pinterest Masks. I am like a recovering product junkie. I've tried I feel like everything! I'm trying to give my wallet a break. Haha

I think that was why the mask was a bust- it also left my skin fairly dry and flaky, total opposite of what I wanted!

I'm in love with pinterest masks, so wallet friendly.
