Hey, Lovelies! Just wanted to share an awesome makeup sale going on right now from Beaugachis
From minerals that plump as you glow to melt proof eyeliners, Osmosis Colour has the perfect cosmetic options to wear at the gym
Wearing makeup at the gym can actually be healthy and look great (even a significant amount of makeup)! That is if the makeup you are wearing is a mineral makeup line with a clean ingredient deck.
1. Try A Mineral Foundation that Plumps as you Sweat
Minerals by nature love hydration and anytime they come into contact with anything hydrating they plump up and look like a second skin (even if they are in powder form).
This will happen throughout the day but working out and “glowing” (or sweating) will expedite the process. Try the Osmosis Colour Pressed Base Mineral Foundation Line ($44 each). Available in 14 shades, the formula offers a constant SPF 27+ protection, once applied evenly all over, that does not expire because minerals are constantly reflecting UV light away from the skin. This foundation is also water resistant! When you perspire, you can just blot off the moisture and you won’t disturb your finish.
2. Try the Secret to Budge-Proof Eyebrows
Get perfect brows with Osmosis Colour Water Resistant Brow Gel ($25 each). It fills in sparse, thinning brows and creates a beautiful shape without flaking or fading. This unique gel formula dries quickly and becomes smudge and water-proof.
With 4 shades, it glides on like a cream and sets to last all day. It won’t move until you want it to. Complete with an angled brush for a precise application, each glide will make a stroke so natural looking, you would never know it wasn’t real hair.
3. Try Melt Proof Eyeliner
One of the biggest issues eyeliners face is wearability. Most of them do not stay on as well and tend to run in the middle of the day. Change your liner and make it melt proof with Osmosis Colour Eye Pencils ($25 each). Water-resistant with long lasting wearability, this eyeliner glides smoothly onto the lash line, dries quickly and defines eyes. With 5 shades to pick from, head to the gym or for activities out in the sun without the worry of melting makeup.
Tired from your workout? Switch from your go to black pencil to a navy blue one. This will brighten the whites of eyes and give the illusion that you are more awake.
Happy Working-Out Beautifully!

After a recent divorce two years ago, my beauty lifestyle went through quite an abrupt change, as I found myself trying to get back on my feet and having to regain that complete independence I had left behind for so many years. I had to give up my monthly massages in order to pay for my internet to blog. I had to give up my beloved two-year eyelash extensions addiction I had filled every three weeks for a cool $100, in order to pay my own car and renters insurance. Yep, life was getting real – fast! I had to give up many of those lovely spa and beauty luxuries just to be able to get by.
Over the last few years, I’ve found other ways to indulge in the beauty I love, but without forking out the Benjamins for it monthly. While some things, like that super relaxing 90-minute Swedish massage, just can not be replaced by those $40 over the shoulder messaging tools (trust me, I’ve tried!) There are actually many other treatments out there you’re probably splurging on when you could be saving big bucks and no one (including yourself) would even notice the difference.
Read on for 5 of My Top Beauty Hacks you can do at home to save yourself money (and LOADS of time) monthly, without having to splurge on those pricey spa and salon treatments.
1. The At-home EyeBrow Wax. I know what you’re thinking, you want me to do what? How will I ever get them even on both sides? Well, I’ll be honest, this one is going to take some practice, but you absolutely can do it and you will save yourself so much money! Just pick up a wax warmer, waxing strips, and a little bit of wax (eyebrows don’t require much!) You can find complete kits for the cost of 1-2 eyebrow waxings, that will last you a couple of years! – Even if you’re waxing religiously! It’s also easy to wax legs and underarms at home too!
How to Wax at Home: Simply warm the wax, apply a thin layer of wax to skin quickly with wooden spatula, place strip over your eyebrow, rub quickly and vigorously with fingers to warm, then pull after about 5 seconds! It’s that easy! You will see a ton of hair on the strip as soon as you’ve pulled.
Tip: Go slowly in small areas like the eyebrows, apply only a little bit of wax at a time, and apply more than one strip until you get more confident in shaping your own brows. If you accidentally apply wax to areas you don’t want hair removed, wait until dried and remove wax with baby oil.
Tip: Save the bikini wax for the pros. I totally cheaped out and tried this at home once… WORST experience of my life! And I spent two very long, painful hours, picking off each piece of wax even after using baby oil, powders, and any other tip I could find online for removing wax from the body!
2. False Lashes instead of those expensive, time-consuming Lash Extensions. Falsies seem to get a bad rap, thanks to faux lashes of the past that looked cheap and completely fake. Today’s falsies look much more natural while still giving you va-va-voom volume and the super long length we all crave! The great thing about falsies is, that even the high-quality real mink lashes are a total deal compared to getting lash extensions each month, and you can re-use them over and over as long as you take care of them!
Oftentimes the common misconception about false lashes is that they are tough to apply, so many of us don’t even give false lashes a second thought. Sure, it can take a little practice, but I found after applying a pair every day for a week, I had it down pat by the weekend!
How to Correctly and Easily Apply False Lashes: The trick is to cut and shape the lashes first to fit the natural shape of your eyes. I find I have to remove about a third of the lash to fit my eyes. Then bend the lashes in your fingers by doing a sort of “wave” action where you round them out and flatten them out. This heats them up, so-to-speak, and gives them some shape so they will round out better around the eye instead of lying flat and then not contouring to the inner and outer eye.
Next, apply a thin layer of eyelash glue to the upper palm of your hand (just below the forefinger), then drag the lash from one end of the strip to the other lightly and smoothly through the glue. You should end up with a nice thin layer of glue along the lash line. If you have extra, use a Q-tip or the edge of a finger, to remove and push extra glue p to the lash line. Now bend the lashes again for about 30 seconds while the glue starts to dry and become tacky. Then line up with and place on the eye, starting from the outside and working your way in.. Use a light touch so you can move around if you didn’t quite get it perfectly placed the first time. I find it’s easier to close that eye to place the lash. Then once I have it placed, I push down firmly to make sure it adheres. Pay special attention to the inner and outer corners to make sure they aren’t sticking up. Once they’re on, quit touching them and let them dry for a few minutes to harden, I sometimes find I will need to trim the inner edge once the glue has dried. Just be sure to not trim your real lashes underneath!
NAIL THE NO MAKEUP-MAKEUP LOOK
Gorgeous lashes without the flaking and clumping of mascara is made possible by Latisse, which contains an FDA-approved pharmaceutical prostaglandin analog named Bimatoprost that has been scientifically proven to grow longer and darker lashes.
A LIP LOOK THAT WON’T MELT IN THE HEAT
Get fuller and more sensuous lips with injectable fillers. Absolutely no downtime and instant results (although there can be temporary swelling or bruising). Don’t like the results? No problem – we can always blast away the filler with an injection to reverse the effects.
It’s not always easy to find beauty products that offer so many benefits to the skin, but every now and then a real outstanding line of products will come out that can do just that!
I’ve recently been using the LJH Dr’s Care BIO+N Toner, Skincare, and CC Cream, and these products have been nothing short of amazing!
Each of these products not only works to fight damage already done to the skin, and repairs it to a healthier, brighter, softer, more luminous and youthful state, but it actually provides a unique barrier to the skin to help protect it from further damage such as aging, the sun, pollutants, and other harmful environmental factors that are wreaking havoc on your skin!
Dr’s Care products contain natural ingredients and are chemical-free. They provide some amazing anti-aging benefits, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fading sun spots, and brightening dark circles and reducing puffiness. Even the perfect skin-matching Vital CC Cream contains anti-aging benefits to give you a more youthful appearance, while also protecting the skin from further damage!
Each product works great for all skin types, even sensitive skin! The Toner, Barrier cream, and CC cream each hydrate super dry cracked skin, reduce blemishes in those with oily skin, and help soothe and take the red out of irritated sensitive skin! These products work incredibly fabulous for everyone! In fact, having super dry skin myself, I normally completely shy away from toner altogether, but the Dr’s Care BIO+N Alike Skin Toner is so incredibly hydrating and soothing, I love using it daily! I never thought in a million years I would be using a toner -and certainly not so frequently! My skin never dries with any of these products, nor does it feel tight either. Instead, my Dr’s Care skincare leaves my skin feeling super soft, supple, smooth, and hydrated!
The secret is that the Dr’s Care toner and barrier cream don’t contain drying alcohol, and both instead contain 85% of Bio-mineral water instead of purified water, so the water feels more like your skin, and is more easily absorbed into the skin, hydrating it better. It also contains hyaluronic acid which is known to carry up to 1000x it’s weight in water – Giving skin a super soft, plump, hydrated texture!
These products really cleanse skin nicely and leave it with such a beautiful glow and more even tone and texture. Skin looks more radiant and clear and is instantly soothed and moisturized too.
Best of all ladies… These products are only $14-$15 each! I had no idea super innovative, effective, powerhouse skincare beauty products even came so inexpensively!
