I’ve put many a beauty product to the test in a 105-degree room.
Beauty gets me giddy like a kid in a candy store. I love everything about it. But I also love instant gratification. (What can I say? I'm an impatient soul.) If you’re anything like me, check out these five easy ways to step up your beauty game super fast. I can vouch for each one.
Coat Your Lashes With Brow Gel Post Mascara
I’m a huge fan of super voluminous lashes and I believe that applying brow gel after mascara is the ticket to achieving my lash dreams. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is my holy grail, but a coat of brow gel gets me the kind of eye-opening, long-lasting curl I desire. It helps to separate the lashes and give them an extra glossy finish.
Tightline With Liquid Liner
I’ve tightlined my eyes for as long as I can remember. I love the thickening effect it has on my lashes. Almost every pencil liner I’ve ever tried has wound up on my lower lash line or smudged. So now I stick to liquid liner. It stays put all day.
Luminize Those Lids
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer is an all-natural, edible cult-favorite with legions of fans who swear by the stuff, so recently I decided to give it a go. (If it’s good enough for Miranda Kerr, it’s good enough for me.) It’s incredible. My favorite way to use it is on my lids for a glowy, ethereal look. Simply swipe it all over for a subtle sheen.
Add Facial Oil To Your Serum
I don’t know about you, but when the seasons change my skin gets as dry as the Sahara. The only thing that tames my irritated epidermis is adding a few drops of facial oil to my moisturizer. I adore Joanna Vargas Rejuvenating Serum, which contains an amazing blend of argan, olive, rose hip, and jojoba oils, and leaves my skin feeling baby-bum soft.
Highlight Your Lips
Whenever I’m feeling a bit risky or want to shine like a disco ball, I always add highlighter to my lower lip, focusing on the center. My lips instantly look Kylie Jenner-esque, without being over the top.
