Energize Me Mint Toner

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Facial toners are by far my favorite beauty product. They have minimal ingredients with amazing benefits (if you find the right ones). Luckily I found a great recipe in the book Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin.

Here are the benefits you can get from this facial toner:
THE MINT IN THE TEA IS CALMING + COOLING
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR BALANCES PH–which keeps your skin from being too oily or too dry.
ANTI-BACTERIAL + DEEP CLEANING– this helps zap zits! If the tea didn’t make the toner a dark color, you would see more dirt come off onto your cotton swab, even after cleansing your face!
BRIGHTENING–removes the dull cells from your skin, leaving an “I just got a facial” glow.
TEA MINIMIZES PORES–and is said to also eliminate fine lines and wrinkles

Still don’t believe me when I say this stuff works miracles? Then scroll down and try it for yourself!
NOTE: IF YOUR SKIN GETS IRRITATED AFTER A
WHILE, USE THIS TONER LESS FREQUENTLY.
KEEP AWAY FROM EYE AREA.

Negative Space Nails (tutorial!)

Negative Space | Tiffany FajenNegative Space | Tiffany Fajen

I spotted and fell in love with the negative space nail trend about a year ago on Pinterest and since then, I’ve tried it a few times. It’s minimal and easy and it has that “this person cares about trends, but doesn’t take themselves too seriously; I want to approach and have a conversation with them,” look. Well, maybe that’s an overshoot, but I love it nonetheless. I just love looking at my nails! Another cool thing about doing a seemingly complex manicure (it is not at all difficult) is that it instantly makes your outfit look put-together. Scroll through to see how it’s done!

What you need: 
Nail polish remover

Clear base coat

3 or 4 nail polishes of similar tones (I used bronze/gold, a dusty pink, a gray/taupe, and a gray beaded polish)

Clear top coat (I use and LOVE the lilac scented one from Urban Outfitters)

Here’s how to do it:
1. Clean your nails with nail polish remover, then with soap and water. 

2. Add 1 or 2 layers of the clear base coat.

3. Starting halfway up your nail and working toward the tip, apply a single stroke of the first polish.

4. Repeat this step for all of your nails.

*VERY IMPORTANT: Wait until that color is completely dry before the next step, otherwise the colors will combine, creating a muddy look.*

5. Then do the same with the other nail colors, so they slightly overlap.

6. When the tips of your nails are covered and totally dry, apply 2 layers of the top coat,

and voila! You have your high-fashion manicure.

If you try this out, tweet me a picture @tiffanyfajen and keep experimenting!
