Hello….Long time no blogging…

Hello my loves! It’s been a long time since I blogged about anything and I have been pretty busy graduating and getting my bachelors degree in Communications Marketing. I also have a 1-year-old daughter and I have been looking for a job! I haven’t found a job yet but I am not giving up hope. Anyway, on to some beauty news!!! If, you remember from my last few posts about shopping my stash, that is exactly what I’ve been doing. I bought some new things here and there but nothing major. I will post a “hiatus haul” in a few days. I have tons of new things to post about. I used up a few things and discovered a new-found love in a Chanel palette I bought about 6 years ago!!! I know, I know that’s a long time but there is more where that came from but, I will be sure to keep you updated.


My Makeup Inspiration!

I LOVE RIHANNA. I love her fashion and makeup. When I look for makeup looks I tend to get my inspiration from what Rihanna is wearing. This picture is about two years old but I just found it and I love it. I’m not a wearer of eyeshadow but she makes me want to wear some just for this look. For an everyday look I would wear a navy blue eyeliner to take the place of the blue shadow.  Who is your makeup inspiration?

Product Rave!! Garnier Dark Spot Corrector!!!


I’ve always been a fan of Garnier’s hair shampoos and conditioners. I though why not give their skincare a try. I jump for joy and scream YES!!! This product really works!!! I finally found something that is not a waste of money. I’ve been going through a rough battle with dark spots (acne marks) on my cheeks. I had a purge period after using a retinol treatment. I just could not take it anymore. I was breaking out left and right, up and down. I never had bad skin to begin with I just wanted better skin. You know the saying “If ain’t broke don’t fix it. I should have took heed to that saying. Anyway, my rant about retinol will be in another post…..

Company Claims: “Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector reduces the appearance of dark spots caused by aging, repeated environmental exposure, hormonal fluctuations, and even past acne damage. Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector is powered by pure, potent Vitamin C to break up dark spots and lift them away”. www.garnierusa.com

Using the Dark Spot Corrector, I saw improvement after about a week and I use it once a day. I use the corrector every morning along with my moisturizer with SPF 15. The corrector can be used as a regular moisturizer but, I have dry, combination skin and this alone just don’t cut it. I’ve been using the Dark Spot Corrector for about a month now and the past two weeks I’ve been using it morning and night. I’ve seen a better improvement of my skin. I have a glow and the spots are getting much lighter. I will give the credit to the natural Vitamin C it has. If you are having some trouble with getting rid of your pesky acne marks give this a try!!! Have you tried this? How did it work for you? Post a comment and let me know what you think?

Cost: $14.99 ( That is how much it cost me) Prices differ at different drugstores.

It’s on sale right now @ Target for $12.74

Welcome to Make Me Ova 247!!!!!!

Hello, readers. My name is Renee. Today is the first day of my new blog!!!!! YAY!!!! I was contemplating on creating a blog because I was never sure about what to write. Now, I figured I will do what I do best. I will write. I will not put any limits on my blog. I come up with a lot of ideas all the time. If I feel like I want to share something with you guys I will. Now let me tell you about some things that interest me. Most of my interest will end up on this blog. I have a passion for music and songwriting. I admire fashion but, not as daring as some people (maybe one day). I love anything that has to do with make-up and nails. All things that are artistic is what interest me. I will be posting a few things within the next couple of days. Welcome to Make Me Ova 247!!! Drop a comment just to say hello…..
