Beauty Tips

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

I absolutely love beauty projects, and when I saw that Kelly was doing this for SUYL, I was so excited!

I wash my face religiously with this face wash. I get it at CVS, and it looks like they're discontinuing it.  Boo!  I don't know what I'll be doing then.  I love this face wash because it's 95.8% natural, and has no sulfates, which strip your skin. I have always had a problem with my skin, and I've tried EVERY acne skin care product in the world.  One day I was reading about how doing less to your skin can make it better.  So I tried this, and it really worked.  I've not had a bad zit in over a year.

 In the summer, I don't use moisturizer, but in the winter, I use this:

I actually don't keep a lot of makeup in my bag, because I've found what I like, and I kind of stick to that.  Whenever I buy a product that doesn't work out, I put it in the makeup case that I use for doing plays.  There are some funny things in there, like sparkly purple eyeliners, an assortment of false eyelashes, bright pink lipsticks, etc.  

I use Revlon New Complexion foundation, and have for years.  I absolutely love it.  It goes on really smooth, covers good (I don't need concealer) and stays on forever.

I currently use the Lash Stilletto mascara in black.  I like it, but I change mascaras every few months, so I'll probably use a different one soon, ha ha.
I have brown eyes and fair skin, and I go back and forth between using brown and black eyeliner.  It took me forever to figure out how to really apply eyeliner, and I discovered that the key (for me at least) is to be really careful and use a light hand, then smudge it all in to my lash line.  I buy an eyeliner with a smudger at the end.  If I'm going out, or it's a special occassion, I'll use a heavier hand, and not smudge so much.

I have a bazillion lipsticks, but really all I wear is Burt's Bees Lip Balm.  It's the best thing ever.  I do have several MAC lipsticks and glosses, and I LOVE THEM.  They of course, last me forever, because I forget to use them.

As for hair products, here it is.  BEST. HAIRSPRAY. EVER. IN. THE. WORLD.

If you don't use this, go out and get some right now!  I use the original at home, and for drama stuff, I use the heavier hold.  It's amazing.  I spray it on the bottoms of kids shoes to keep them from sliding around on stage.  I spray it on pantyhose that have runs in them.  I'm sure you could use it to fix a falling hemline, ha ha!

Dolly Rebecca

I was all set to do an entire post on my ridiculous love for Dolly Parton. But I'm going to just post this instead.

Amazing, huh? A video from the 80's, that makes me cry every time I watch it? Love her.

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the fact that Lost is on tonight!!!  But I must say that I'm quite nervous, because I've heard that even though it's the last season, they're not going to reveal all the secrets!  Booooooo!!!  My husband and I started watching Lost in it's 3rd season, and we rented the first 2 seasons and watched them.  We were hooked!!  We literally watched Lost every night for about 2 months. 

I am so excited about seeing these guys:

There's a lot of TV gossip over "who will Kate pick? Sawyer or Jack?"  I think the choice is obvious...

My husband and I jokingly call Sawyer "my boyfriend." 

One thing I'm very excited about is seeing this guy again.  He was one of my favorite characters, WHOM THEY KILLED!!!   I cried my eyes out when he died!!

9PM cannot get here soon enough!  I am DYING!!!  
On a random note, I'm getting my hair cut today.  There's no school, but I have rehearsal, so I'm trying to put a post up really quick before I go to the salon!  Maybe I'll let her do something new and exciting.  Or maybe not...
