It’s official. Spring has arrived. That means it’s time to shed those layers and show some skin.  Unfortunately, our  limbs have been hiding all winter long and may not be looking their prettiest.  To bring dull skin back to life, try this refreshing body scrub.  Here is an easy recipe for a salt scrub that you can make with ingredients found in your own kitchen.  You’re just moments away from shiny new skin.

What you will need:

5 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon

First mix the olive oil and sea salt together. Once the salt gets coated by the oil, the lemon won’t dissolve it! Next cut the lemon in half and squeeze over the salt + oil. Mix and mash. (Feel free to adjust the recipe to your liking.) Then scrub away!!

For instant sophistication, red lipstick is a girl’s best friend.  We love
it with everything from jeans to dresses… there is nothing more
glamorous. Here, we break down the steps to make it last all night.

TOOLS:

-toothbrush or disposable mascara wand

-lip balm

-nude lip liner

-red lipstick

-eye shadow blending brush

-translucent loose powder

-lip brush

INSTRUCTIONS

1) Using a toothbrush or disposable mascara wand and lip balm,
remove any dead skin by gently scrubbing in circular motions.

2) Outline the perimeter with a nude liner to prevent feathering.

3) Apply red lipstick directly from the tube.

4) Using an eyeshadow blending brush and translucent loose powder, powder
your lips to really set the color.

5) Apply a second coat with a lip brush to smooth edges and perfect lines.
