What To Do This Weekend


The weekend is a sanctuary. Time for laundry, reading the paper, and brunch with friends. Here are 10 beauty ideas to keep you busy the next few days!

  1. Clean your brushes! Dirty makeup brushes spread germs and cause breakouts. Wash them weekly to stop infection. 

  2. Read a beauty book. We have our eye on Makeup your Mind: Express Yourself by François Nars, creator of NARS cosmetics. 

  3. Apply a face mask. Make your own or use an existing product (we bet there are tons in your bathroom already!) and put it on while reading the style section of your favorite paper. 

  4. Start your day with lemon. Make a cup of hot water and slice of lemon to drink as soon as you wake up. It will help detox your body and skin. 

  5. Create a makeup inspiration board! Tear out your favorite makeup looks from magazines and arrange them on a pin board for easy early morning inspiration. 

  6. Try out new products and looks. Experiment with your makeup to get better at applying winged eyeliner or trial a new lipstick. 

  7. Browse beauty online! Check out tutorials on Beautylish.com to learn some new tips and tricks!

  8. Clean out your makeup. Throw out anything that you haven't used in six months. 

  9. Give yourself a pedicure. Spend that extra bit of time scrubbing your feet with a pumice stone and applying moisturizer. 

  10. Organize a beauty party. Ever wanted to learn how your friend makes her lashes look so much longer than yours? Invite your girlfriends over and ask them to bring their favorite products and tips. Just make sure there are snacks!
