Often times when applying eyeshadow, little crushed specks of color fall onto our cheeks and nose. This is especially annoying if the eyeshadow is black or a well pigmented color that can potentially smudge onto your beautifully foundation-finished face.
The solution to this is easy, however. Simply grab any clean fluffy brush, I’d suggest a blush brush, and sweep the little specks right off your face with a feather-like stroke. VOILA! It’s like nothing ever happened! ;)
Honey is a multi-purpose miracle from nature that can not only make some sweet treats - but can also transform hair, skin and lips with moisture.
Today, I’m going to share with you one of the little things I do to maintain really soft, kissable, lipstick-ready lips. This is what we’ll need:
- 1 Teaspoon of Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey
After crushing the brown sugar to turn it into finer crystals, pour the tablespoon of honey into a small recipient and sprinkle the teaspoon of crushed brown sugar on top. With clean hands, mix them well with your index until the consistency is thick and grainy. Now, using the same index finger, apply the sweet mixture onto your lips, fully coating them, and massage gently for as long as you deem necessary.
When done, dampen a paper towel with warm water and remove from lips. The result should be super soft lips without any dryness. Your lips should be restored to their natural state!
For maintenance, I like to use honey like it’s a lip balm at night before I go to bed. Leaving it on overnight really penetrates moisture and waking up to sweet lips is a plus!
Beach days are definitely here! A day of fun at the beach can be great for replenishing your energy, taking a refreshing splash in the salty water and letting your body absorb some healthy Vitamin D from the sunrays. The sand is also nice to lay on and feel under your toes. But…when it has to come off the body, it’s annoying as hell!
That’s why you should always take a mini bottle of Baby Powder with you when you hit the beach. Once you’re out of there, sprinkle some powder on the areas where you see and feel the most sand (usually the legs and feet) and the sand should fall riiiight off!
