DIY Beauty Tips and Tricks for Makeup


When you’re running low on lip gloss, place the tightly closed tube in a cup of warm water and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The heat from the water will melt any gloss on the sides of the container and you’ll have more available to use.


Out and realize you forgot to put on blush? Swipe some lipstick onto the apples of your cheeks and blend

If your eyeliner pencil is too soft and crumbles when you attempt to use it, pop it in the freezer for around 15 minutes before applying.

Getting tired of your everyday lipsticks? Or maybe you hit the bottom of a tube of your favorite and can't manage to scrape out the last little bit. Create a new shade by cutting off pieces of two old sticks or scraping out the dregs at the bottom and melt them together in the microwave. Wait for them to re harden and apply with your finger or a brush.
Use a credit card to get the most from your mascara: Hold the card against your lashes and swipe mascara over the other side. You can do the same thing with old bussiness cards!

If you’re running low on tinted moisturizer, mix a little foundation into your daily facial moisturizer to make your own.

The next time you find yourself in a Starbucks (or other fast food restaurants) and you look in the mirror just to realize that you face is so shiny that it could be used as a mirror! Grab a few napkins and use them as blotting sheets, works great!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
