Babydoll Weddings Beauty: The Importance Booking a Trial

A makeup and hair trial is a great way to make sure you get your makeup and hair the exact way you want it for your wedding. It’s a great time to get to know your stylist before the big day. It gives you time to make big decisions like do you prefer an up-do or to wear your hair down. Do you prefer traditional makeup or airbrush. It’s that kind of interaction and feedback with your stylist that will make you feel more confident when you meet again on your wedding date.

After getting your makeup and hair done go hang out in different light (afternoon, night), take pictures, and let friends see it. That way you can see what it will look like at different times, and in pictures and you’ll be even more excited about it!

Babydoll Weddings Beauty: When You Don’t Have Time For A Pedicure

Summer is officially here and we all know what that means; sun, sandals, pool days and vacation! All of which are reasons to get those feet in tip top summer shape. Some of us are religious with pedicures while others are not (I am not…). But I have found a way to keep my feet summer smooth in between pedicures. And yes it may sound like a weird combination of ingredients but it works!
976709f179de6c770eba84547d5e6c9aAll you need is 1 cup of Listerine; you can use any of the flavors but I prefer the blue. 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and 2 cups of “boiling” hot water. I prefer a temperature slightly below boiling, as long as it’s hot. Soak feet for about 20 minutes in the mixture. Which is the perfect amount of time to catch up n your favorite show, a good book or your social media! After the 20 minutes are up, rinse and all of the dead skin wipes right off. Perfect way to help those dry feet when you can’t squeeze a pedicure into your busy life!

dab57c064e926aa47a7abd0f7a3589ecWedding season is here and we could not be more excited; especially with all of the fun spring makeup trends. Because one of them is a big bold lip we wanted to share with you on how to keep those lips smooth from morning to night. Perfect tip for your wedding day or a night on the town! Start by prepping your lips with a lip scrub. You can use a store bought such as Fresh’s Sugar Lip Polish or there are plenty of DIY recipes out there; either or scrub works great! Next you’ll want to apply some hydrating balm or serum to those lips! One of our personal favorites is MUFE’s Hydrating Elixir (it can be used for eyes or face). Next comes the lip primer. This will give your lip product something to adhere to other than your lips. Then continue with your liner, lipstick and or gloss. And lastly and also incredibly important, blot. And to give the lips a crisp clean outline follow with a clean blended line of concealer in the cupids bow of the upper lip and under the bottom lip.  Perfect tips for perfect lips!

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: The Power of Coconut Oil!

Well, it’s happened. I have jumped on the coconut oil train and I will never jump off. And the more I use it the more I ask myself how I did I not jump on sooner?! I started using it as a face mask to help treat acne. I suffered from severe aCoconut oil facecne in high school and I still have quite a bit of scaring and redness. So instead of globbing on makeup I looked for a more natural way to help reduce the redness as well treat some of those pesky blemishes that pop up every once in awhile. I came across this very simple face mask consisting of coconut oil (I prefer the coconut oil from Trader Joe’s) and tea tree oil (Doteerra is my go to for essential oils). By mixing these two ingredients together you have a treatment that helps fight bacteria on the face naturally and also will not over dry nor clog pores. It’s what everyone who suffers from acne ever wanted.Hair Mask

After I discovered this face mask that’s when I really jumped into the coconut oil life style. I now use it in my hair, when I cook, in my coffee and sometimes I just rub pure coconut oil on my skin before I go to sleep. It’s fantastic! And because of it’s growing popularity the price dropped significantly since when it first came on the market.  It has now become a staple in my beauty routine as well as my eating habits and I will never look back!
