What is the best beauty secret you know of?? Mine is random but I use it quite a bit…I have super fine/thin blonde hair and if I don’t wash it every morning it looks oily near my scalp…I read somewhere a while ago that if you run a little baby powder through your hair it soaks up the oils. Weird, I know, but it really works and makes my hair feel fuller. Plus on mornings when I have to work at 5am it saves me some time….sooo…what’s your secret??

I wish I had some baby powder right now then! There was no hot water this morning so I took the shortest shower possible and did not wash my hair, and now it looks like I’ve *never* washed my hair! SMH.
My best beauty secret is eyebrow threading, but its not widely available everywhere. My place in NY costs $6, and I always leave feeling like a better person, as silly as that sounds. Nothing else for $6 can make my face look so much better, and instantly!

@misskittykakes: I use a eyeshadow that matches my brow color and fill in the gaps. Filled and defined eyebrows do so much for the face, it’s like a whole new face.

I put on all my eye makeup before I put on the rest of my makeup (foundation, powder, everything)…that way color that falls onto my cheeks/under my eyes I can just swipe off before I put on the rest!

Eyeshadow primer has changed my life. I have a pretty oily t-zone and even my eyelids would get oily and my eyeliner and shadow would crease and smear during the day and eventually disappear. I started using BeautiControl’s eye shadow primers and color freeze eyeliners and viola! Eye makeup stays perfect all day long!
Now I just need to discover the perfect mascara. I don’t dig the Maybelline mascara in the green and pink tube.

This is kind of lame, but honestly – staying hydrated!!
Helps the skin, the hair, the nails and your figure. Plus it’s just healthy!

@sunhat: Lash blast is my fav mascara! I’ve tried many different kinds, and this one (I think that is what it’s called. It’s in an orange tube)

Clinique youth surge – best moisturiser on the market! I use it twice a day and it keeps my skin hydrated without being oily or getting pimples.
My skin has cleared up and gotten much “glowier” since i started eating whole foods almost exclusively.

@sunhat: i second that mascara….long defined lashes!!
I guess my beauty secret would be homemade body scrubs. using lavender epsom salt and virgin sunflower oil (rich in vitamin e) or any oil really! Super soft and very moisterized skin.
Another i found when i went to india..was coconut oil…i use this about two hours before i wash my hair..let it sit then shampoo and condition… super shine non-greasy hair.

Speaking of Clinique…the dramatically different moisturizer GEL – not the regular cream/mositurizer. The gel is amazing! It makes my skin glow like the moisture surge, but it is much more affordable (of course I still splurge on the moisture surge every once in a while)…it’s Clinique bonus at Bloomingdale’s soon : )

I love the baby powder secret! I use witch hazel toner every single morning, along with lotion, and my skin instantly feels better!
