LIPSTICK LONGEVITY photos + post by amy nadine, graphic design by eunice chun How could I not share with our TBD family my favorite trick for keeping clients’ lip colors on all night, long past the red carpet? Some steps may seem a little odd, but they’ve worked for me for years, so I confidently know that they’ll work for you too. Here’s all you have to do: STEP ONE: Apply lipstick or matte lip pencil over the entire lip area. My favorites are Bite Beauty High-Pigment Pencils {she’s wearing Poppy above} and Tarte Matte Natural Lip Stains (Fiery is also an amazing matte red} because they’re formulated like matte lipsticks but with easier precision. STEP TWO: Blot with a tissue by folding it in half, opening your mouth, placing it in between your upper and lower lips then pressing down. STEP THREE: Load up an eyeshadow blending brush with loose or pressed powder {translucent works best and if you want to invest in the most finely milled powder that feels like silk, this one is my favorite}.

Read More It's about 90 percent water, he says, and because it has only 46 calories per cup, you can gobble it down without worrying about weight gain. By fighting off free radicals, which are damaging molecules generated by exposure to sunlight and air pollution, these antioxidants prevent the breakdown of collagen, skin's support structure, and preserve elastin stores. Munch away: Enjoy watermelon off the rind, slice it into salads, or freeze it into chunks. The Sweaty Solution: Exercise.

The key is to use full-fat milk (or powdered milk) and pure honey. How to take a milk and honey bath: Pour 1-2 cups of milk (or 1/2 c. full-fat powdered milk) and 1/2 c. honey under running, warm water. For full effect, brush your skin lightly and in circular motions with a dry brush or a washcloth before getting in the bathtub.

I used less oil and honey than described. There was a thick layer of honey just sitting on top of the sugar when I let it sit in the jar so mixing in more sugar will prevent that from happening. by mightyhedgehog Oct 14
