Every time I watch an awards show I look at the celebrities’ skin in awe. How is it possible their skin can be so dewey and perfect? I realize having a professional make-up artist by your side doesn’t hurt. However, with the help of Allure.com and my collection of cosmetics, you too can get back your youthful glow.
If you’re looking for a creative DIY weekend beauty project, try doing newspaper nails. The video tutorial below is easy to follow, and doesn’t have too many steps or require artistic ability (just slather on nail polish, dip nails in rubbing alcohol then press on newspapers for a few seconds).
This project also doesn’t require too much stuff. If you decide to take it on, here’s a kit with everything you need to get started.
Pro tip: Make sure the base nail polish is completely dry before dipping in rubbing alcohol and pressing on newspaper or the newspaper letters will smear. Also, wait a while before putting a clear coat on top or you will also smear the newspaper letters. Lastly, for more contrast between the letters & the background, try white nail polish as the base.

Here is a great video on how to organize your beauty products, and BeautyMaven has pulled together a collection of items you can use to start getting organized.
