Things We Love: Product Storage Idea

If you are anything like us, then you’ve got beauty products all over your bathroom!  But you know what’s not beautiful? Clutter!  Which is why we love this great storage idea…

organize decor beauty tips tricks perfume

Comb your local thrift stores and flea markets to find discarded drawers, take them home, clean them up, and…Ta da! You’ve got a fantastic, vintage storage piece with a ton of character.  And you can feel good about yourself for recycling and re-purposing an old item!

Things We Love: Jane Iredale’s Illuminating Concealer

The SkinOwl just had to share this illuminating concealer with her favorite beauty buffs!

 

This product is unlike any concealer you have ever used! Its unique ingredients create a soft-focus effect that conceals while it brightens. With ingredients such as cucumber, white tea extract and buckwheat wax it will calm tired eyes and reduce puffiness. The added benefit of avocado and sunflower oil gently nourishes the delicate eye area.

 

You can find cucumber & white tea in SkinOwl’s EYE cream as well! Layer the concealer overtop our eye cream for the ultimate youth cocktail!

Passion for Purple: The Ombre Manicure

We love all of the nail art going on right now!  One manicure idea that screams FUN without being too over the top is The Ombre Manicure.

Here’s how you get the look: Pick your favorite light hue for your thumb nail. Using different shades of that color, paint each nail a little bit darker than the one before it, until you reach your pinky nail. Naturally, we prefer purple but this idea works for any color that you love! Go from white to black, peach to coral, or baby pink to magenta. You choose!
