The difference between mink, silk or faux eyelashes

 

 

While faux mink tends to be the most popular material for eyelash extensions these days, there actually several different kinds. It,s easy to get confused with all the "mink/faux mink talk", throw in "silk" and you're like...huh? Lets break down what the different types of extensions are and how they differ from each other.

Mink, faux, and Silk are the most commonly used extensions. The main difference between them comes down to their firmness, are they real fur, faux fur or are they synthetic. 

Mink

Usually used on older clients or those going for an extremely natural look. The allure of extensions made from mink hair is that they have a natural quality to them that you cannot get from synthetic material. Real Mink lashes come from the Mink tail, usually coming from either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. With Mink extensions you'll get a light, fluffy, soft natural look. The extensions usually last longer because they are so light as well as being able to apply several mink extensions per natural lash. The downside to this type of extension is that not only are they expensive, ranging from $300-$500 per set, but they also do not come curled. They'll need to be permed and you'll have to keep curling them at home to maintain that curled look.

 

Faux Mink (Cheaper)

These are the most popular extensions used by lash artists today. These man made, poly-fiber lashes come in a variety of lengths, diameters and curls, have good flexibility and remain somewhat natural looking depending on the length. They're designed to imitate real mink fur, but lash artists and clients both love this of extension type because the curl is permanent and they're low maintenance. No need to curl or put mascara on these type of extensions. The Faux Mink lashes are a little more bold, slightly glossier than the Silk and Mink. Because of their variety of size and length they're great for customizing different looks for each client.

 

Silk 

These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type which makes their retention slightly better. Because of their lightweight they are good to use on older clients or clients with weak and flimsy natural lashes. Like synthetic lashes, silk come in a variety of curls and lengths. These types of extensions also hold their curl but the curl tends to be less uniform then synthetic lashes, making them better for clients looking for a more natural look. Silk lashes tend to be thicker than any other type of extensions and also have that rick black color. They tend to be the least comfortable type of extension and are best used for special occasions.

Rihanna named Humanitarian of Year

 

 

 

Rihanna has not been shy about her support for charitable causes over the years, but she doesn't just talk that talk. When not busy with her work creating objectively perfect pop music, Rihanna funded he creation of an oncology and nuclear medicine center in her native Barbados to help diagnose and treat breast cancer. The Harvard Foundation's announcement also takes care to note Rihanna's creation of the Clara and Lionel Scholarship Program, which helps students from Caribbean countries to attend college in the U.S., and her support for the Global Partnership for Education, an initiative that focuses on creating equitable access to 

The Harvard Foundation recognizes prominent public-spirited leaders each year in honor of the late professor Peter J. Gomes.

Beyonce Pregnant with Twins

Lady Gaga's Super bowl half-time

Lady Gaga's powerful Super Bowl LI halftime performance didn't have any of the overt political statements that some people were expecting, but it did have a message about inclusion. Many people watching didn't realize that the song "Born This Way" is designed for the LGBTQ community. If you've been to a Pride March in the past four years, you'd know a thing or two about dancing to "Born This Way" while you're surrounded by a ton of glitter, bare skin, representing rainbow. Let's just be clear here, though: Performing a song that's so blatantly gay in front of an audience that includes Mike Pence, one of the most anti-LGBTQ politicians today, is absolutely political — especially when it contains lyrics like "No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgender life.

Gaga opened and closed the show with a sea of drones flying high in the Texas sky. Gaga had to get special clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration, which had placed a ban on drones at or near the stadium.

Last Year Beyoncé received backlash for displaying Black Pride on a national stage. So in this case, rather than not show up at all, she allowed her art to be the activism. She played within the confines and outwitted them as best she could. It's up to us to read between the lines.

Crossfit Journey

 

 

Love it or hate it, CrossFit has found its place in the fitness world. Not sure what you think about it? Before you decide, try one of these workouts.

CrossFit requires a certain level of "crazy." Not serial killer crazy, but crazy in that hardcore, "won't quit 'til I'm dead, and even after death I'll burst from my coffin and train like a freaking machine," kind of way.

Simply put, CrossFit is a fitness program that challenges you to break out of your routine.  Stasis is the enemy and patterns are to be avoided at all cost. Forget about sets and splits, CrossFit works the body as a whole. Just as an athlete would spend some time working on drills and then put those movements to work by playing their sport, CrossFit encourages proficient movement patterns by performing functional movements with relatively high intensity.

WOD, WTF?

If you're a CrossFit virgin, you've probably never heard of a WOD, or workout of the day. Basically, you can head to a CrossFit gym or check out Crossfit online to grab a complete daily workout.

Because CrossFit workouts can be so brutal, I sometimes feel damn near silly for almost killing myself three times per week.  I started Crossfit Training in November.  It has been 3 months.  I have seen the difference in my body, speed and stamina.  I am still worker harder to improve.

10 signs you are dating a Narcissists- Run!!

 

Let me put it this way: If you had strong self-esteem and confidence in yourself, you would not be chosen by a narcissist as a possible partner. This is because narcissists like to control and feel superior.  When you doubt yourself and lack confidence, you become the perfect target for a narcissist. Narcissists are appealing at first. They give the impression of strength and confidence. Their goal is to charm you and make you think it is all about you.  If you weren't blinded by the attention and weren't questioning your own self-worth, you would realize a lot sooner that your date is interested in you only because you appear weak and less worthy. 

  1. only give you a compliment when he wants something.  He has a plan.
  2. Common conversational topics for narcissists include accomplishments and achievements (the trophy complex), exciting and envy-worthy activities, excessive focus on personal issues and concerns, excessive focus on looks and materialism, and putting others down to show one’s own superiority. Talks about his looks and focused on superfiscal things in a woman. 

These are some of the traits of a narcissist or someone with narcissistic tendencies. Only a psychiatrist can diagnose a narcissistic personality disorder, though the broad definition of a narcissist is someone who:

3. Charming and romantic but with a catch..  I dated a guy that was charming and wanted me to                        help with his business.  He had an agenda.While there’s absolutely nothing wrong inherently with                  being charming, romantic, and a good lover, the narcissist crafts these traits in order to use others.      He or she is not really interested in you, but only what he wants to extract from you (often to fulfill      an inner emptiness due to the inability to create true intimacy).

4. Instant gratification- Some narcissists, being highly self-centered and self-absorbed, expect instant               gratification to fulfill their needs. This may range from goading you to answer their texts or calls                   immediately, to pressuring you to do things their way (socially, interpersonally, and/or sexually)

5. Manipulation- Some narcissists will use his or her romantic partner to meet unreasonable self-                       serving needs, fulfill unrealized ambitions, or cover up self-perceived inadequacies and flaws.

6.  Constantly put down others -However, even during this stage, pay attention to your date’s seemingly minor, passive-aggressive jokes and comments about your background, body features, choice of attire, use of time, as well as personal and work priorities. Consider whether these remarks are reasonable, or reflect your date’s selfish desire for you to “change for the better”. 

        7. Expects constant attention and admiration from others.

         8. Preoccupied with thoughts and fantasies of success. Has many ideas to become an entrepreneur. He            has visions but doesn't follow through.

9. Lacks the ability to empathize with the feelings of others.

10.  Reacts Negatively When You Don’t Give Them What They Want-Since many narcissists can't                stand disappointment or rejection, they will frequently react negatively when you don’t give them                  what they want, in the way they want it

The first visual reference most people pick up in the “Fade” video is for Flashdance with a mix of Janet Jackson, Ciara all in one. Teyana squeezed every bit of Afro-descended rhythmic movement
