VIDEO: DIY Vanilla Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

Here's my quick, simple recipe for home lip scrub!  I also love using this all over my body in the shower- just be careful, it will leave your shower floor slippery!

When my lips are on display, I want to make sure they aren't cracked or peeling, so I give them a good scrub!  I try to exfoliate my lips 1-2 times per week, and this is the perfect way to do that!  This scrub will remove dead skin and leave you with perfectly soft, kissable lips.  This step is especially helpful before you apply any bright colored, matte or even drying lip products, and helps to ensure that your lip products go on perfectly smooth. 

Oh and I can't forget to talk about my very favorite lip balm, the EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in "Strawberry Sorbet."  I love anything strawberry scented, but this goes one step further because it tastes like strawberry heaven on your lips!  I love how moisturizing it is, so I carry it with me everywhere I go!

Soft, Natural Makeup Look Tutorial

Today's face is brought to you by the amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.  This kit is my new favorite makeup too.  The powders are perfectly toned to get that awesome sculpted face you've always wanted.  I had been basically coveting the Contour Kit for months, so when I finally found one online, I bought it immediately.  Best purchase this month for sure!

Another beauty hack that I love is using a white eyeliner on my lower waterline to open up the eyes.  When you apply a white liner (or another light colored liner) on your water line, it creates the appearance of larger, more awake eyes.  If you have smaller eyes, or eyes that tend to look tired, try a white liner for a quick pick-me-up!  :)
