Beauty DIY: Egg White & Honey Mask

It's the time of the year when our skin becomes a little more chapped than the warmer months. What better to do than a DIY facial mask? And even better, you can find all these things in your kitchen.

What you will need:

1 egg white
1 tsp raw honey
(Just use regular honey if you don't have raw honey)

Literally it's as easy as 2 ingredients. Place it in a bowl and whisk till the egg whites and honey get frothy.

Apply to face, avoiding mouth and eye areas.

Let dry.

Rinse with lukewarm water.

Egg whites help tighten pores and honey helps moisturize.

Finish off with toner and moisturizer of your liking.

Happy DIY-ing :)

Beauty Review: Femme Couture Lightning Lash Mascara

This product was a part of my October 2012 Glymm Box samples.

When I first saw the brush on this mascara wand I was reluctant to try it. Maybe just because it looked so different than what I've used in the past. I've never used short rubbery bristled mascaras before.

But I decided to try it anyways. I was surprised that I actually like this brush. It has a very smooth even application and it does not clump. My lashes are defined nicely.

The only bad thing is that it's not waterproof and it flakes. I would probably still use this for my daytime office looks. But if this mascara comes in a waterproof formula then I would definitely give it a whirl.

Happy Movember :)
