Secrets From Behind the Beauty Counter!

Hello Gorgeous! 

Okay I admit I do spend a lot of time at the makeup counter.  Why? Two reasons! One, I love makeup and the latest trends and secondly I am a freelance makeup artist from time to time.  It is so much fun playing with new colors and talking to the "beauty experts!"  Sometimes I have even walked away spending way too much for stuff I don't need, even on days I worked as a freelancer!  

These so called "beauty experts" sure know how to pull the wool over anyone's eyes!  After spending years behind the counter and in front (as a customer) I realized that people need to know what really goes on behind the scenes.  Here is an article that says it better than I ever could!

Hello Gorgeous! 

These harsh winter days are making my skin look dull. It's time for a detox bath!  Here is my version of a great way to bring back that glow to your skin and detox it at the same time!

First start by running a hot bath, this opens pores and prepares your body for cleansing.

2cups of Epsom Salt
5-10 drops of essential oil (my choice is lavender or rose).
add a bunch of rose petals.
Next, soak for about 30-40 minutes. 

Afterward you will want to drink lots of water.  This will help replenish what has been pulled out of your system.
