So Berry White! : Natural At-Home Tooth Whitener.

The star of this show is the strawberry. Did you know that strawberries are one of nature's natural brighteners? Strawberries contain malic acid. Malic acid assists in lifting surface stains from the tooth enamel. Here is a simple recipe that you can use once a week to lighten and brighten your pearly whites!

1 ripe strawberry
1/2 tsp. baking soda

  • In a glass, mash the strawberry and the baking soda together into a paste. 
  • Apply the mixture to your teeth with a toothbrush. Leave on for 5 minutes.
  • Rince and brush your teeth with your favorite toothpaste.

En Line: Fool Proof Fashion Forward Liquid Liner.

This Holiday Season, the look is all drama and definition. One of the stars of the show is liquid liner in a big way. If you look at high impact liquid liner as intimidating but always wanted to rock it, here is a foolproof application technique to wear this look with ease and style. 

1. Apply an eyeshadow base and eyeshadow in a light cream color all over. 
2. Stencil out your liner with a black waterproof eyeliner. Fill entire upper eye lid from lash to crease with the black eyeliner. Then, draw out the line into a cat eye, angular shape. (Using the pencil to create the shape gives you more control and makes it error proof. The liquid liner is too hard to control at most times.)
3. Take liquid liner and use the liquid liner as a top coat to add definition and shine.
