There’s always something new with me in the world of beauty because I’m always experimenting and exploring. Today I thought I’d share some highlights of my latest learnings.

* When you pay attention to things people tell you, you will gather valuable information about what best suits you. For example, whenever I wear yellow the number of compliments I receive goes up noticeably. After I realized that, I made yellow a signature color in my wardrobe, and sure enough, it never fails to brighten peoples’ day as well as my own. Do you have a signature color you can pull out on a cloudy day that’s uplifting?

* You guys know how I love to throw on a sheet mask in the evening after washing my face. Lately I’ve also started using a peel-off seaweed one. It goes on all sticky and when you peel it off it removes all sorts of old gunk. It makes your face feel brand new, and whatever serums or lotions you put on after seem to work better too.

* We’re heading into a hot summer. Sometimes you need to release some bad vibes or weird energy that you pick up from being out in the world. For this, nothing beats and Epsom salt bath. If you don’t know this trick try it out soon. Somehow the water and salt and heat work to cut the cords from any stressors you have going on, and you emerge with a totally new and peaceful vibe. If you’re super stressed, I’d say take one of these baths daily until things chill out.

* You probably don’t think you need the glitter eyeliner but you’re wrong. I just got a tube of an electric teal one and wore it to a party and everyone enjoyed it so much. It’s one of those things that looks radical in the tube but when you put it on your eyes it just looks bright and happy. Even just a thin line along your upper lashes is going to wake up your face in a subtle way and say, “I am fun, I am fearless, you are going to want to talk to me.” A thicker line is even more exciting. It works with all eye colors and skin tones so give it a try and thank me later.

That’s my mini-update for the Summer of 2018. This season will pass by quickly so make the most of it!
