Top 2 Tuesday - Beauty Secrets

I can't believe its Tuesday again already... as you all know the drill by now [and if not - welcome!] Taylor host's a blog hop every Tuesday with new interesting topics.. this week it just so happens to be Beauty Secrets... and i am always up for a hint or a new trick, so i can't wait to read everyone's blogs tonight :) but in the meantime here are a few of my tips for you...

Forget the shave gel, bring on the conditioner
conditioner is good for your hair follicles [hence why you use it after you have used your shampoo] it is also less expensive than your average shave gel. conditioner typically has a built in moisturizer as well


apply chapstick before testing out a new lip stick color
i learned this the hard way through many years of competitive tap dancing and we all had to wear bright red lipstick [Revlon's poppy silk red to be exact] if you apply chapstick and then apply your lipstick, it will come right off, so if you are trying out a new color of lipstick, i would highly recommend this technique

make sure to stop on over to Taylor at Undomestic Momma to find out other bloggers beauty secret ideas.

Happy Tuesday :)

Hmm conditioner instead of shave gel, great idea, I will try this!

I always put chap stick under lipstick. Works great!

Tap dancer - that's why you understand my "real dance" comment!

You are exactly right about the conditioner - I have not used shave gel in years, and the chap stick is a great tip!

Thanks love your 2!

Great tips! I use conditioner sometimes when I run out of my usual shave gel and it does work pretty well. Maybe I should start doing it all the time.

Oooo, good tips, thanks! I just ran out of shaving gel this morning, no need to buy more. :)

Cute blog, I'm now a follower.

Great tips! I never even thought about the chapstick thing. I guess because I don't wear much lipstick. I need to learn what looks good on me I suppose.
