We’re big fans of this week’s guest blogger, Natalie Higdon. Not only is she a Tennessee resident and a connoisseur of all things Memphis; she’s also a contributor to the Birchbox magazine! (Don’t miss her stellar article on 5 Surprising Facts About SPF). This week, she interviews a hot new singer, reveals her favorite two-in-one products, and schools us on how to trim our own bangs.
I love DIY and looking at pictures of dessert, so naturally, I love Pinterest. My latest obsession is finding ways to create my own beauty products. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
DIY Lip Stain by The Beauty Department
I have a confession to make: I’m not really a lip gloss or lipstick girl. Getting your hair stuck in your super sticky gloss on a windy day? The worst. That’s why I love lip stains. This homemade version is super easy; plus you can totally play around with the recipe and use different fruit combinations to get different shades.
DIY Beach Spray by Lulu’s à la Mode
Give your blowdryer a break this summer and use this Saltwater Beach Spray instead. Get those beachy waves and then go ahead and order an extra mojito—you deserve it after saving so much money on hair products!
DIY Lip Scrub by Sugarlaws
This DIY is so easy that you’ll wonder why you didn’t know about it before. Just mix together some EVOO, sugar in the raw, a little lip balm, and voila! You’ve got super soft lips and an even happier checking account!
