Makeup Brush 101 Hey lovelies! I am so thrilled to finally be publishing one of your most-requested posts- Makeup Brush 101! I think the reason this topic has been requested so much is that brushes can be a really intimidating subject. There are just so many sizes, shapes, brands, types, etc. and I can definitely see how it can all get a little overwhelming! Long before my makeup obsession kicked into high gear, I was one of the many girls out there completely perplexed by the world of makeup brushes.

Makeup Brushes Buying Tips at WomansDay.com - Best Makeup Brushes Who doesn’t want flawless skin, glowing cheeks and eyes that really pop? Here’s a secret every makeup pro knows: Gorgeous makeup is as much about the tools you use as the products you apply. “Brushes make all the difference when it comes to getting a professional-looking makeup application,” says New York City-based celebrity makeup artist Troy Surratt.

A while back I ordered a bunch of ingredients to start making my own makeup. Most all of the ingredients I needed I had never heard of before and couldn’t even pronounce. Which is why I was a little shocked when I read through the formula for translucent face powder. Not only were they ingredients I recognized, they’re cheap and in almost every household already.

Honey Nutmeg Cinnamon Facial Mask I was browsing Pinterest the other night when I ran across this face mask recipe from College Fashion .

Apparently nutmeg and honey can reduce swelling and redness in your skin, as well as soothe acne scars and prevent infection. Who knew! I just know that cinnamon, honey and nutmeg taste pretty good, and I enjoyed the smell following me around for the 30 minutes I had this mask on.
