Warm Up with Spa Night
With temperatures fall-ing, we’ll soon be tempted to avoid all outdoor activities and spend our downtime hibernating under the covers. So, what better time than now to pamper and prep ourselves for the harsher temps ahead? Drown out a case of the Mondays with any or all of these six picks. -Samantha Sutton Read all the customer reviews on mark’s Calm Yourself Hydrating Mask ($9) and you’ll definitely feel the urge to test it for yourself. After using a cleanser, apply the mask to fix dry skin and protect it from future harsh skin-ditions. Bubbles plus a long, warm bath will help you escape the cold temps! Aveeno Stress Relief Foaming Bath ($5.99 on Target.com) will moisturize your skin as you soak, and its calming lavender scent promises to erase any worries. We love The Body Shop! Their products love us back too, especially their Peppermint Cooling Pumice Foot Scrub ($14). The fresh smell combined with miracle-working bits of pumice stone will leave your puppies feeling smoother than ever! One of the hottest nail trends this year is crackle polish, and I personally love it because it’s so low-may (those chips are way less noticeable). Sephora by OPI’s Blasted Nail Colour ($9.50) comes in a variety of different cracked shades that are perfect for an at-home mani/pedi. Celebs swear by Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter ($35) and it’s no wonder! It deeply hydrates dry skin for 24 hours but has a super-light feel—and a great smell! Nothing is more relaxing than chilling in comfy clothes! Stay warm and snug in this Sweater Robe ($44.50) from Victoria’s Secret, paired with these cute Old Navy Sweater Knit Booties(SALE: $19.50) which are perf for a case of cold feet. GIRL TALK TIME: What do you think of these products? What beauty makes you feel like you’re at a spa?

Your 5-Minute Beauty Routine
Applying makeup doesn’t have to be a long and expensive process. Check out my top picks for beauty products/makeup that will have you done up in just five minutes, all for under $25 each! Makeup enthusiasts and phobes alike are sure to be down with these product suggestions that will have you looking fierce, fast.
Summer beauty starts with getting skin pampered and hydrated, and the best thing to get your face looking its best is a…facial. Garden Botanika’s Corrective Clearing Face Mask ($18) gives your face a smooth look right from the first application. We all know that first impressions are everything, so make sure a good facial is part of your beauty routine.
This season, bronzers are all the rage, and every woman wants that special glow. Physicians Formula’s Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow ($11.95) is a complete compact for every aspect of your look. Whether you want to rock a bronzed look on the eyes or cheeks, this palette has you set for a glamorous glow on the go!
To achieve a flawless look, your pout has to be perfect, and a fun shade always attracts a ton of attention. A great pop of color that’s suitable for most skin tones is Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lipstick ($22.50) in Watermelon. The color is vibrant and fresh, and will keep your lips nourished while you’re looking glam.
Want to make a simple look pop on a whole new level? I am crazed over Jemma Kidd’s JK In Vogue Perfect Blush Collection ($18 at Target) because it’s a great blend of corals, peaches, fuchsia and a splash of shimmer. Each blush palette holds its own with the color schemes they feature, but our favorite is 5th Avenue because it really makes your cheeks come alive!
We all need to keep our skin moisturized with SPF, but sometimes that awful white residue is less than appealing. Now, the best way to get SPF is with a touch of color like e.l.f.’s Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($3), which comes in a variety of skin shades and is very lightweight. It’s such a necessity for a quick color boost and it helps keep your skin protected.
Want to achieve a simple look on a less glamorous day? Grab a moisturizer that’s also a simple lip balm with a touch of color. Avon’s Slick Tint for Lips ($.99) is great for not being too much, but still showing off your pucker. The lip balm comes in a sheer pink, a deep reddish wine and a rosy pink, all at an amazing price!
