I have learned SO much by reading The Beauty Bar:

1. Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask is awesome and inexpensive

2. Creatives Stickey Base Coat and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat make a home manicure super easy

3. Aspirin masks help prevent breakouts

4. OPI and Essie nail polish are da bomb

5. L'Oreal True Match foundation makes me look flawless (well, at least as flawless as I can be :smile:

6. Make-up can be FUN!

Just wanted to give a shout out to all the great threads and advice here!

Anything you have learned here??

I have learned that there are many other people as obsessed as me :roflmfao:
Me too! I love makeup and beauty products so much and it is nice to see other women who share the same passion for it.

I also never would have learned about the aspirin mask, baking soda exfoliator, MAC volcanic ash exfoliator, Lancome Oscillation mascara (my new fav), or Aussie 3 Minute Miracle conditioner!

Thanks to all the tpf members for enlightening me on the above products! :yes:

I like to think that I may have helped someone, and that means a lot to me because beauty products have a very immense power, and to help someone feel good about themselves in a small way like using a certain type of makeup or hair product...is awesome.

This place has made me love eye makeup more and more. Before I would only just use one color. Now I usually use at least 3! (gotta use a base color, crease color and highlighter!)
~Eye shadow primer
~Aspirin Mask
~Epsom Salt
~NYX Eye shadows
~Everyday Mineral Makeup :heart: (My all time fav. thing I've learned to love because of the beauty bar)
