B//B DUPE: mattifying primer

This dupe is my favorite to start out with because I LOVE finding products in the Korean market that work just as well as the US market and are a fraaaaaaaction of the cost 🙌🏼 The @benefitcosmetics #porefessional is a cult favorite because it fills pores and mattifies oily skin to keep you lookin’ like you got a filter on yo face all the damn day! If you are already a fan then I don’t need to tell you all the reasons that you need the @aritaum “Pore Master” because these two are identical in texture, consitency and performance. BUT if you do need convincing, my dupe is only $13 on Amazon (compared to $31 for the high end 😱), it will keep your foundation in place all day AND keep any oils from disrupting your makeup!

Both of these primers are flesh toned and do an incredible job at filling in the pores and leaving you with a smooth surface for your foundation that will keep oil at bay! My dupe actually gives you MORE product and costs less than half of the Porefessional 🙌🏼

ARITAUM “Pore Master” $13/0.90 oz

BENEFIT “Porefessional” $31/0.75oz

summer brow game: strong

During these summer days when we are in and out of the water and CONSTANTLY shweaty there is nothing more annoying than your eyebrows melting off your face #amiright. I have loved this “Tint My Brow Gel” from Etude House for years now, but there is no better time to use these than the minimal-makeup days in these shweaty months (yes, I am making “shweaty” happen.) – BOOYA!!

WHAT IS THIS STUFF? The Etude House “Tint My Brow” gel is a simple user friendly way to dye your brows at home! I prefer the color #3 Grey Brown because the other colors tend to pull red on me and is the same color that I recommend for both blondes and brunettes alike.

Since the instructions are all in Korean, here are the instructions and a few tips on how I like to use this best!

HOW TO:

  • comb through and trim brows
  • apply a liberal amount of product in the desired shape of the eyebrow (the more you apply the easier it will be to remove!)
  • allow gel to dry for 2+ hours (if you would like stronger color leave on for longer! I used to apply before bed and peel off in the morning.)
  • after the gel is completely dry, remove slowly starting from the front of the brow (the longer you allow the gel to dry to more difficult it will be to remove and MAY pull out a few brow hairs, juuuuust so you know.)
  • AFTER CARE – DO NO USE cleansing product to the eyebrow area within 24 hours of removing gel.

SUNLESS TAN PREP

Since it is 😱 52 DEGREES 😱 outside rn, what better time than NOW to share my bffs in the self tan department girrrrrrl!! If the sun don’t shine, don’t mean you need to be pasty 💁🏻Any great tan starts with supple, soft and clean skin, read: EXFOLIATION! Here are the tools that I use to get the perfect canvas for a sunless tan 🙌🏼

Move aside $2 exfoliation mitts and heeeeeellllllooooo exfoliators that WORK!

The South Korean’s have the corner on this market because they start their babes into exfoliation at the spry young age of 5/6. The entire family hits up the K-Spa for skin treatments and those spas use THESE tools!

First up at the Japanese Salux towels which are best for full body exfoliation and allow you to get those tricky areas like your back! I looooove to use these BEFORE I shave so that I can get the closest shave possible. These are also the ONLY thing that actually work for me in removing any excess tan. These come in a pack of three so you’ll have enough to last you 6 months or so!

This smaller version of the exfoliating towels are easy to use and although they are small they seriously DELIVER great exfoliation. I love using these Korean Washcloths on my arms, neck, chest and the tops of my feet for a more gentle exfoliation on that thin skin! These come in a two pack of 4 (8 total!!) and they are SO cheap, I looooove giving these as gifts!! Happy skin = happy tan!
