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…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
