When I think of recycling, I immediately think of paper, plastic, and soda cans.  But turns out you can recycle your very own makeup products after you’re done using them!  Pretty cool, right?  Here are three different ways to recycle your products to make sure you’re getting the most out of them!

  • Depending on the brand of your makeup, you can recycle a certain number of empty containers for a brand-new product! Chelsea Crockett - MAC LipstickBrands such as M.A.C. for example will take six of your empty M.A.C. product containers and give you a free lipstick in return.  Look up a couple of your favorite brands and see if they offer any deals like this as well!
  • Be smart when you buy! If you care enough to put in a little research, see which brands make their product containers out of recyclable material.  Whether the product is made with glass, plastic, or another material, we can be smart about which products we can recycle and which have to go in the trash.
  • Think of how many products fall to the bottom of your makeup bag that go completely unused. I know for me, it’s a lot!  I encourage you to go through your bags monthly or every few months and find the products you have yet to open.  Odds are, if you haven’t opened them yet, you probably don’t need them! I encourage you to donate them to a women’s shelter nearby or find someone who would appreciate it more than you would!

Now you can start doing more than just simply using your makeup products!  Find a second purpose for them like the ones above! 🙂

What’s the first thing you notice when you see Kylie Jenner? Besides her gorgeous hair and perfect skin, her lips definitely stand out! If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll see that, in almost all of her pictures, she rocks a matte mauve color. There are several different ways and combinations to pull this off, but here are two of my favorites!

  1. NYX Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands to shop for makeup, whether it’s eyeliner, foundation, bronzer, and especially lipstick! They carry the perfect products to get the famous Jenner pout. Their Mauve Slim Lip Pencil is only $3.50 and adds the defined look to your lips that you want. Then, for only $6, you can purchase the Whipped Caviar Matte Lipstick for the flawless finish. If you want a glossier lipstick that doesn’t have exactly a “matte” finish, the Mauve Extra Creamy Round Lipstick works just as well!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Lipsticks
  2.  MAC Cosmetics is yet another brand that I love to get my products from! Along with NYX, they have an almost endless amount of lipstick colors to choose from. Since we’re going for the mauve look, I suggest the Midimauve Lipstick or the Faux Lipstick. On their website, you can check to see which color you think matches best with your skin tone that still gives off the look you’re going for. Highstrung, Fabby, and Plum Dandy are only a few of the many shades that are similar to the color you want. Just pick your favorite and finish it off with MAC’s Whirl Lip Pencil!

Now that you’ve got your dream celeb lips, find the perfect outfit and makeup to highlight them. Kylie’s look is absolutely perfect for fall! So… what are you waiting for?

Love, Chels
