We all our beauty routines, don’t we? I always have to put my mascara on with my mouth wide open; I fully believe it gives me better application precision. Or something like that anyway. My absolute favorite mascara has to Great Lash Mascara from Maybelline. Yes, it’s cheap but it also happens to work extremely well for me. I buy the Lots of Lashes kind in Blackest Black; it seems to coat every eyelash and does a fantastic job at accentuating my eyes.

My biggest tip for long lashes: Heat your eyelash curler for 10 seconds with a hair dryer and curl your lashes before you apply mascara. Then apply, and use your eyelash curler to finish it off. Trust me, you’ll notice a difference!

Now for your lips! I can’t stand chapped lips. You need to make sure your lips are well-moisturized at all times! Because really, who wants to kiss dry lips? I used to date this guy who always had chapped lips… UGH. Anyway, I recommend applying lip balm before you apply your lip gloss or lipstick. It also helps if you can find a lipstick with vitamin e and moisturizers built in.

My biggest tip for soft lips: Rub warm coconut oil on your lips before you go to bed. A little goes a long way, plus it tastes delicious!

Face to Face Organics

Today I’m excited to introduce you guys to Face to Face Organics, a wonderful start-up company I heard of through a friend. Face to face makes USDA certified organic lip balms that are handmade using renewable energy and are made with 40% recycled material.  They’re also GMO and cruelty free!

The best part about this lip balm though? For every tube purchased, face to face gives $1 toward a smile-healing surgery for a child in need! They have already funded several surgeries that have indeed changed children’s lives.

“In developing countries, facial deformities among children are a major problem that leaves kids unable to socialize, eat, or smile. Most cannot afford a simple surgery that has been around for decades. At face to face we believe that every child with this issue should be able to receive that life-changing surgery.” — Face to Face Organics website.
