DIY Beauty | How To Dupe LUSH Lip Scrub

DIY Beauty | How To Dupe LUSH Lip Scrub

As a professed Lush Cosmetics addict, I am always searching for fun and easy dupes of my favorite Lush products.  As beautifully scented and amazing as their products are, sometimes I just love to see if I can make the products myself.

During the Winter months a great lip scrub recipe is perfect for treating those dry, cracked lips that are in desperate need of some TLC.  Lip scrubs help remove excess dead skin cells to reveal the healthy skin beneath.

DIY Lush Lip Scrub: Ingredients

Small Lip Balm Container
Peppermint Extract
1/2 tsp. Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp. Olive Oil
Optional: Food Coloring of Choice

DIY Lush Lip Scrub: Recipe

1. In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and olive oil.

2. Add a small drop of peppermint extract and mix into the sugar and olive oil.

3. Optional: Add 1-2 drops of food coloring of choice into the mixture.

4. Add mixture to your small lip balm container!

DIY Lush Lip Scrub: How To Use

1. Using clean hands use your index finger to scoop out some of the scrub.
2. Apply scrub to clean, dry lips using slow and soft circular motions for approximately one minute.
3.  Using a warm wet washcloth gently wipe away the scrub from your lips.
4. Apply a lip balm or moisturizer to lock in hydration!

DIY Lush Lip Scrub: Tips & Tricks

  • If you choose to color your lip scrub, make sure to choose a light pink or "natural" shade, as it may stain your lips.
  • Go to the Dollar Store for your lip balm container.  They have small plastic or acrylic containers, as well as cute tiny mason jars you can use.
  • Choose a different "extract" to make different flavors.  Try almond, vanilla, or chocolate!

Boyfriend Does My Voice Over! | Fall Olive Green Makeup Tutorial

Boyfriend Does My Voice Over! | Fall Olive Green Makeup Tutorial

I have been looking forward to filming this video for a long, long time.  When I first saw the "Boyfriend/Husband Does My Makeup" tag video being shared a couple of months ago, I immediately knew I HAD to get in on it!

The only thing my boyfriend, Brandon, knows about makeup is that it's expensive.  He doesn't know the difference between a Beauty Blender and a Complexion Sponge, and couldn't care less about the different foundation undertones that one can purchase.  However, he does know that makeup and creating makeup looks and tutorials is a big passion of mine, and was actually excited at the opportunity to help me out with a video!

The premise: I film a tutorial, edit it, sit him down at the computer with a microphone, and give him full liberty to describe my makeup application as he wishes.  At times he is hilarious in both his simplistic approach to describing the makeup and brushes, and the self-deprecating nature of makeup tutorials in general.

We both had a lot of fun making this, and I hope you enjoy watching!

EVERYDAY LONG LASTING Makeup Routine & Tutorial | Tips for ALL Skin Types!

EVERYDAY LONG LASTING Makeup Routine & Tutorial | Tips for ALL Skin Types!

Unless you are a beauty blogger or vlogger, the average person does not have many days of the year where they get "glammed up."  Usually you fall into an everyday makeup routine, finding and sticking to your favorite products, and never stray too far from your trusted brands.

My everyday makeup routine changes by the season, sometimes by the month.  As a YouTuber and Beauty Blogger, I am always finding and using new and upcoming products, incorporating them into my makeup routine as a method of "putting them to the test."

My penchant for trying new products, and subsequent makeup addition, has lead me to this: my go-to everyday long lasting makeup routine.  I choose products for those days I know I will be out that won't leave my normal-to-oily skin looking like a greased hamburger at the end of the day.

In this video I also give some tips and tricks for choosing shades of makeup for different skin tones, including highlight, blush, and bronzer, and how to achieve that natural, fresh and matte everyday look!

My Favorite DRY SKIN Winter Skincare Routine Products

My Favorite DRY SKIN Winter Skincare Routine Products


As winter approaches and the weather turns cold and dry so does, inevitably, my skin.  In the winter it is important to remember that your skin needs extra moisture and hydration to stay healthy and glowing.  Who says you're not allowed to have dewy, glowing skin in the winter?  If you find the right products it's extremely easy and you will be amazed by the results.

In this video I share with you some of my most coveted winter skincare routine products for dry skin.  These products help my lips, face, hair and body maintain their healthiness even during the driest of winter months.

This will be our first winter in the Pacific Northwest, and from what we've heard it doesn't necessarily get as cold and dry as it does WET.  Apparently we have months upon months of rainy and gloomy weather to look forward to until the sun finally reappears sometime during early April.

Perhaps this time around I'll be seeking out more waterproof products than anything.
