My Beauty Secret

Chloe perfume | Essie Nail Polish | Hempz Lotion (life changing!) | Makeup Bag | Towel | Makeup Brush | Estee Lauder | Dry Brush | : c/o Marshalls

One of my biggest pet peeves is when girls hoard their beauty secrets (It's like c'mon share the deets!). No, but really. So I've decided to share my go-to beauty secrets that I only share with my closest friends + feel like it's time to let the rest of the world know. Ready for it? I don't ever (like, ever) pay full price for beauty products. It's just not my thing. 

It's like my closet. I don't see the point unless it's a major investment piece. And not to mention Marshalls carries all of my fave brand names that I love to use (can you say hello, Essie and Chloe!) at a fraction of the price it would cost me at the mall. All about that life. Want to know more of my beauty secrets, keep reading... Also would love to know what's your beauty secret?

Beauty Secret: Run out of blush? No probs. Take your lipgloss and turn it into a cream blush. Mix gloss with a little bit of moisturizer to create a sheer colored cream blush. Tap the apples of your cheeks with your new cream blush and voila! 

Beauty Secret: Dry brushing + essential oils. (Not together. Obvs!) Dry brushing is great to help achieve that glowing skin, increase circulation + activates the lymphatic system. Amazing for detoxing on the daily. But don't forget to do it before the shower not in the shower. 

As for essential oils I love adding them to my sparking water. A favorite recipe of mine at the moment that helps with digestion is adding grapefruit oil, ginger oil, peppermint oil, cinnamon oil, lemon oil to my chilled sparkling water. It's so refreshing!
