Who’s on Snapchat???

Apparently it’s the place to be.

I love it because it’s a real peek BTS.

Pretty committed to the whole platform right now.

Anyway, if you follow along, you know a couple weeks ago I asked you guys to ‘Snap me’ any questions for a little Q & A.

So ta-da, I picked a couple to share on TSC YouTube channel— & well, here’s the video:

SUBSCRIBE TO TSC YOUTUBE CHANNEL }

AND CAN WE JUST TALK about how I’m getting the kid question a lot lately?

Here’s the thing: I’m not a girl, not yet a woman……..

…when it comes to kids. Probably going to do the whole marriage thing first & then we’ll play it by ear. Who knows.

Ok so if you guys like this Q & A, I’ll do them more often?

Products talked about in video:

Favorite gold choker
Forever21 choker
♡ ARE YOU AM I choker
Favorite Murad product
Favorite bareMinerals product
Seaworth Coffee ( OBSESSED )

Alright well I’m STUFFED from lemon-y kale salad, mahi mahi tacos, too much avocado, & raspberries  X dark chocolate chips…so I think it’s time to shut down my computer & read.

Oh, & make sure to come hang out on Snapchat, it’s easy, fun, & unfiltered.

Plus I’ll be sharing A LOT of beauty hauls, makeup tutorials, easy recipes, workout tips, & a lot of behind the scenes LOL-ers. Username: @laurynevarts.
Leave your username below so I can stalk your Snap too. Fully curious.

See ya tomorrow, lauryn x

beauty giveaway | by the skinny confidential

Some of you guys saw that I shared my daytime makeup routine on Snapchat the other day, & one of the staple products shared was CC cream. That same day a lovely little package of goodies arrived with a bunch of other goodies. Coincidently the package contained my favorite CC cream.

Weird, I guess everyone is loving it because it’s just THAT good.

Anyway, since the whole package was so cute ( & inexpensive! ) I figured I’d share it on The Skinny Confidential for any brides to be. This seems like kind of the perfect bridal grab bag because 1.) it’s the prettiest, TSC-esque pink, 2.) it’s filled with insane products, & 3.) it has my ride or die, dewy CC cream.

In My Floral Travel Cosmetic Bag ( Plus You NEED This Lip Plumper )

February 19, 2016
by
LAURYN

travel case 6 | by the skinny confidential

Firstly, HOW CUTE is this floral cosmetic bag?

I used to be guilty of have having 3 cosmetic bags to travel but after 1.) getting all my cosmetics taken by airport customs, 2.) hurting my shoulder from carrying too much, & 3.) kind of learning how to travel, I travel with one.

This is big so it’s a real win. Plus it’s like $9 dollars.

Anyway, enough about the bag, let’s talk about what’s in it!

You guys know we are in Cabo planning our wedding, really I wish you could all come. How fun would that be? LOL. So I figured what a perfect time to share what’s in my travel cosmetic bag.

Instead of doing the typical boring list, let’s just sort of shoot the shit shall we?

Ok so pink Q-tips, they’re just way cuter.

travel case 4 | by the skinny confidential

I have a HUGE zit right now ( watch Snapchat & see for yourself ), normally my skin is not prone to zits ( don’t call me lucky BECAUSE instead I get hyper pigmentation— UGH ).

This zit is highly, highly annoying, so zit cream to the rescue. I’ve used acne spot fix since I was in 7th grade for random pimples- NO JOKE. It’s my ride or die zit product. & of course, pink Q-tips are necessary for applying the zit cream because the worst thing in the world you can do for a zit is to touch it.

I know everyone & their mom says this but here’s the real truth: when you pop a pimple the white crap in it is contagious. Meaning if you get that pimple goo ANYWHERE, & I mean ANYWHERE, it will spread the pimple. BACTERIA. Don’t believe me? Next time you pop a pimple & touch your face anywhere prepare to get more pimples.

I avoid this situation at all costs obviously.

Pimple popping tips: start with a clean face ( I use an all natural soap bar ). Pimple gets popped with a pimple popper ( this is a thing guys, found it at the drugstore, really works wonder ), I make sure nothing gets anywhere & then I immediately apply Murad’s zit cream to the zit WITH A Q-TIP not my finger.

Is this making sense or do I sound crazy?

Whatever you do, avoid the finger after the popping the zit. TRUST ME.

Also very much about their blackhead cream & WAIT FOR IT…lip plumper.

WOWIE.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything from the lip plumper. Maybe just some shine? Boy, was I wrong. This lip plumper reallllly plumps ’em up.

Like total Kylie Jenner-style.

travel case 3 | by the skinny confidentialtravel case | by the skinny confidential

Ok so we’re still on what’s in my travel cosmetics bag: I also threw in a cute Forever 21 necklace, Fashion Tape ( SO YES for every woman ), & a face massager to help with swelling. I found this contraption in Milan & I use it every day. A REAL life-saver.

Nippies are a no brainer because hard nipples are inevitable & these are essential for travel.

And then I threw in my camera ( not cosmetics, but necessary ), neon nail polish, & a teeth whitening pen!

Ok so that’s what I packed in my cosmetic bag. I feel like all of these thing are random but when you have a zit & hard nipples all of these things are kind of essential, no?

Ok, you’re up: what’s in your travel cosmetic bag?

Detox Mask Essentials: When A Little Cleansing Is In Order

January 28, 2016
by
LAURYN

detox mask | by the skinny confidential

HI, HI, HI!

Sometimes your skin just needs a little DETOX to keep things fresh & clean.

Detoxing your skin should become a regular part of your skin care routine. You’ll start to notice a more dewy, moisturized, bright skin tone ( AKA detoxing your skin is the shit ).

You already know I’m obsessed  with the Aztec Clay Mask, but here are a few other detox mask essentials.

1. Mario Badescu Collagen Mask:

Every women, and man for that matter should be using collagen on the reg. This collagen mask will tighten, nourish, & purify skin. PLUS, it can reduce redness & irritation.

2. Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask:

The secret to soothing skin after too much sun exposure. This mask is SUPER hydrating, great for sensitive skin, reducing puffiness & irritation, & helps lock in moisture.

3. New Zealand Bee Venom Mask:

This mask is my absolute favorite & best kept secret! Bee venom will naturally lift and tighten the skin VISIBLY. You’ll see the difference, it’s insane!

4. Crystal Hydro Gel Patches:

Don’t forget about your eyes! I’m obsessed with these for wrinkles. Put them under your eyes to smooth and moisturize, reduce or remove dark under eye circles, wrinkles, & crows feet.

5. Indian Healing Clay:

This is an oldie, but a goodie. More info on healing benefits: Aztec Clay Mask

6. Dermal Korea Collagen Mask:

This is the Korean secret facial mask, don’t spend $135 on SK-11 mask, use this Korean mask instead, you’ll literally get the same benefits. 

Who’s ready to DETOX? I’m literally off to do one of these masks now. 

Which is your favorite? Have any detox mask suggestions?
