The Best Beauty Advice I've Ever Received

Who doesn't love a rushed morning hack? Or, better yet, a weird but effective way to apply makeup? We tapped our staffers for their best tips and tricks for all things beauty related. From strategically using toilet paper seats (crazy, we know!) to quirky concealer tricks, you’ll find advice to keep you as beauty-full as ever!



"Don’t fill the very inside of your eyebrows. It makes them look too harsh and unnatural. And, conceal your under eyes by bringing the concealer down past the dark circles in a v, then blend. For hair, don’t let the curling iron curl the very ends of your hair. It’ll look like prom hair versus a more natural, sophisticated look. I could go on and on!" - Elizabeth, Co-founder & President



“Drink water! I look and feel better when I drink as much water as I can.” - Carson, Content Strategist

“Wear SPF every day. Every dermatologist or skincare expert I’ve ever interviewed has always said the same thing, “Wear sunscreen.” So I do. Every. Single. Day. I’m guessing it’s the secret behind my baby face!” - Caitlin, Site Editor

“I’m all about lazy girl hacks– especially for hair. My mother introduced me to those old-school hot rollers. I roll them in before I apply my makeup, and by the time I’m through with my face, my hair is curled and ready to go!” - Claire, Junior Content Strategist

"My stepmom was a makeup artist, and she said to only apply facial products using your middle finger and ring finger because those have a lighter touch. It reduces wrinkles," - Sam, Content Strategist

"Moisturizing is so important. I feel like it's one of the only reasons I’m comfortable going makeup-free some days! I use olive oil for my hair, skin, and to take off my makeup because it's super gentle but gets the job done.” - Grace, Content Strategy Intern

“For a quick DIY mask: I mix two bags of green tea and a tablespoon of honey and then spread it on my face with a mask applicator brush. You leave it on for 10-15 min and wash off with warm water. It's perfect for any skin type all year round. Green tea and honey are both filled with antioxidants, nutrients, and healing compounds.” - Stephanie, Sales Marketing Strategist

”This won’t sound glamorous at all, but toilet paper seats are great for blotting the oil off your face! They don’t take off makeup.” - Nikki, Account Strategist
