Back in the Day Beauty

It’s easy to get caught up in finding the newest and hottest beauty breakthroughs but sometimes the classics work best — with a modern twist of course! We’ve created an what’s old is new routine to get your skin, makeup, and hair in tip-top shape.

Purify Your Skin: Mud Masks

When it comes to deep cleaning your skin, it’s tough to go wrong with a classic mud mask. But unlike old-fashioned concoctions that sucked moisture out of skin along with impurities, today’s masks are upgraded with nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil. Best of all, these masks take only a few minutes.

Prep Your Pout: Lip Liner

Rimming your lips with a visible line is never a good look, but that doesn’t mean lip liner is all bad. After steering clear of them for the better part of a decade, we’ve finally come around to liners — but on our own terms. Instead of tracing your lips, simply shade them before applying lipstick — your color will last much longer.

Prevent the Shine: Translucent Powder

We’re all about glowy skin, but as temperatures rise, there’s a fine line between dewy and just plain shiny. Old school powder puffs are out of the question, but a light translucent powder is key to mattifying skin and touching up throughout the day.

Revive Your Hair: Hair Masks

We’ve all seen crazy (and entertaining!) hair masks gone awry. In our high school days, mixing together eggs, mayonnaise, and avocado and mashing it into our hair seemed like a genius idea. Needless to say, these experiments usually ended in disaster. Now that we’re older and wiser, we know that there are much easier and more effective ways to hydrate and protect our hair. Kerastase’s Masque Chroma Riche is a quick (leave it in for just 5-10 minutes) way to revive hair without visiting a salon. This one also features a UV filter and vitamin E to protect your color treated strands from becoming faded and dull.

Classic Style: Hair Rollers

Retro Hollywood glamour is back in a big way and the easiest way to get soft, bouncy waves is with hot rollers. They’ve been around forever but updated versions protect hair and make it easy to multi-task. Putting in the curlers takes about five minutes, even for beginners. They don’t need to be perfect — the more uneven the spacing, the more natural the waves will look. Once the rollers are in, they cool for 10-15 minutes, giving you plenty of time to grab breakfast or put makeup on.
