Julep Maven May [Modern Beauty] Box

I’ve been a Julep Maven subscriber since November, but May’s Gatsby-inspired box has been my favorite. (The Glycolic Scrub and Rock Star Hand Crème in the Power Couple Box are pretty amaze too!–highly recommended) The themed box was sans polish, but I was more than impressed with all of the (toxic-free, always) beauty items included.

I’ve tried other lip scrubs in the past, that usually get messy and have severe clingy properties, but the Sugar Smooch Lip Scrub smells absolutely amazing, and makes my lips so soft and smooth, with easy application. A perfect pre-lipstick ritual.

The fun variety of lip hues in the New York Jazz Lipstick Trio came in two sheer shades (a nude and poppy color), as well as a matte red for a bold statement. The fun sized portions are great for a small clutch or pouch.

It takes a lot for me to fall in love with a mascara. Lash separation, no clumping, and volume are all on the check list, yet this American Beauty Volumizing Mascara goes the distance with lash growth enhancement ingredients. The easy applicator wand even gets into the hard to reach spots to get even the smallest lashes. I’m sold!

Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal - Metallic Trend

Shorts | Sweater | Sunnies | Pouch | Wedges | Nail Polish | Sweatshirt | Belt | Sneakers | Sandals | Clutch

I’m all about the full blown metallics for Spring. It makes a great statement piece, to make any ensemble shine. Gold and bronze metallics make chic beach accessories, and silver is such a chic pairing with black & white or a pop of neon.

  1. Zoya Nail Polish in Tobey. Lately I have been all about pops of Barbie pink. This non-toxic color is a new obsession.
  2. butter LONDON in Fiver & Fruit Machine. Remember mood rings? My nail polish mood changes season to season. In the Summer, I want candy pops of color, during the Winter I crave deep, dark hues, and in the Spring I soft pastels are my signature. I adore the 3-Free brands new Spring hues. Pastel shades easily compliment a mani-pedi, I love the punchy lilac hue for my toes & icy mint on my hands.
  3. JewelMint Flores Collar Necklace. This pop of neon is the perfect edgy piece to pull any Spring look together.
  4. The Middle Part. I decided to change it up at a trip to the salon yesterday, and opted for a middle part for the first time since junior high. I’m loving these fab middle parts as well. [1, 2, 3]

The Mess-Free Manicure

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure I love sporting deep hues during the Winter months (right now I’m loving navy.) Unfortunately, they aren’t the easiest to apply. This Pinterest found beauty tip is key for a fool-proof manicure in just minutes.

  1. Using a Q-tip, apply Aquaphor (a must-have multifunctional healing ointment) around each nail, making sure not to get the lotion on your actual nail
  2. Apply base coat, polish and top coat (letting each coat dry in between)
  3. Once dry, rub in the Aquaphor onto cuticles

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure The end result: A mess-free manicure (no need to spend time on touch-ups!)
