Today: Three beauty tips I can pass onto you beauties as we go into this Spring weekend…..
1. This is my new favorite lipstick – a slightly shocking hot pink number, by Nars, called “Carthage
“. It’s super matte, glides on easily, doesn’t dry out lips, isn’t super messy, lasts a really long time, and it looks good with just about everything…
2. LOVING this hair style from Madewell‘s Spring catalog. I love that it’s a really, really loose & super thick halo braid + it’s a little messy. I hope to try it this weekend. (& really, I just love anything from Madewell.) See Rubi’s crown braid tutorial here (she’s my favorite hair stylist).
3. Baking Soda Teeth Whitener… This is one of my almost-free beauty tips. Just dab a little baking soda on your tooth brush (I keep a little jar of it in my bathroom) and then brush for a couple of minutes, then rinse. Only do this once every two weeks, as needed. It really works. It’s all natural. And it’s a ton cheaper than any other whitening product. (Though be careful: Baking soda is abrasive and can damage your enamel, so don’t overuse it! Read more about that here
Do you have any beauty tips to pass along? Spring makes me want to freshen up my routine & try new things.
Happy Weekend everyone! Danny & I will be relaxing a bunch. It’s been a busy week for us. Though I’m hoping we can fit in a bike ride together. 🙂
