What is pore filler? What does it do? Well, to be honest, it does exactly what the name says, it fills your pores! I’ll explain what it is and why you should give it a try.

What it is: Pore filler helps to erase the look of large pores. You smooth it on your face like you would a makeup primer before applying your face makeup.2503344

Why to use it: If you have large pores or just want to cover up your pores, this is for you. Using this can help smooth inconsistencies and large pores to help your makeup go on smoother. It also helps combat oily skin, because the larger your pores are the more oily your skin is!

The best products: NYX and Benefit Cosmetics both have great pore fillers. Baby Skin also has one called “Instant Pore Eraser” that I have used and definitely recommend. Pore fillers can actually be pretty pricey, so my recommendation is to either ask for a sample or buy the smallest bottle you can so that if it doesn’t work for you, you aren’t stuck with a ton of it!

Try it out and see what you think! Comment below if you have ever used pore fillers and what you thought of them.

Organizing your makeup stash can be fun, but also a bit overwhelming. Over the years, most of us accumulate a lot of beauty products. I get sent a lot of products to try, and keeping them all organized is quite the task. If you love makeup and beauty and have a pretty substantial collection, I have a few makeup organization tips to keep you from becoming overwhelmed. Here are my best organizational tips:

  1. Keep makeup brushes in drawers because they collect dust which can subsequently cause breakouts.download (1)
  2. Purchase a clear vanity organizer so that you can both store your makeup and keep it close so it is there when you need it. Also, makeup is pretty so this is a great way to both display and store it.
  3. Store eye and lip liners in a cup on your vanity so you won’t lose them somewhere in a drawer. Also, store them upside down so you can see the color stripe on the packaging so you can quickly determine what color they are.
  4. Go through your products regularly. If you aren’t using something, get rid of it! Also, check for expiration dates and throw away old stuff.
  5. Re-purpose household items to use on your vanity. Use old candle jars to hold things like lip glosses and eyeliners. It will save you money!
  6. If you need organization inspiration, look it up on YouTube! You will come away with so many ideas.
  7. If you have 2 of one product, put the duplicate in a travel bag so next time you go to travel you will already be one step ahead. This will also keep the duplicate product from cluttering up your drawer!

I love the feeling of being organized and having everything in a designated place, don’t you?

Never splurge on THESE beauty products

There are some beauty products that I absolutely HAVE to splurge on (Urban Decay eyeshadow, I am taking about you!). There are others that you can really save on, too. These are products that are the same quality whether they are bought at Walgreens or Sephora, and the “off brand” products are the same as the “name brand” products. If you are looking to save some money on cosmetics, here are some products  you should never splurge on.

 

  1. Eyeliner: If you use pencil eyeliner the formulas don’t change much from drug store brands to high-end brands, so if you are looking for pencil liner look no further than your neighborhood Walgreens!
  2. Mousse: If you use hair moose the cheaper brands are actually better! They are better on the budget and reportedly work better than mousse sold by the top brands in the business.Screen-Shot-2014-10-18-at-1.20.07-AM
  3. Lip balm: We have all been tempted to pay $15 for that good smelling, shimery lip balm from Sephora. But, as fast as you go through lip balm, you want to keep in mind how fast that price can add up! The base ingredients of lip balms, like the oils and waxes, don’t change based on price! The ingredients are the same.
  4. Brow products: If you want your brows to be on fleek, look no further than the drug store. They will have the same products as the cosmetic counter at Sephora but for half the price.

 

I love finding ways that I can save money, especially when it comes to makeup! Why not save on something that we use every day!

XOXO, Chels
