5 Budget-Friendly Beauty Tips For The New Year

It seems that there is a miracle cream or solution for every part of your face these days, but buying all of those supposed life-changing products can break your budget. Use these five simple and natural beauty tips to look radiant without breaking the bank this year.

1. Scrub With Salt
Fine-ground sea salt is perfect for an exfoliating scrub. Put a small dab of gentle soap in your palm, add a pinch of sea salt and scrub your face gently. If you have oily skin, this will also help reduce the shine and replace it with a radiant glow.

2. Whiten Teeth With Baking Soda
One of the quickest, easiest and safest ways to brighten up your smile is to use a dab of baking soda with water. Put it on your toothbrush, and gently scrub your teeth in a circular motion for one to two minutes twice each day. Make sure to use a soft toothbrush to avoid damaging your pearly whites.

3. Brighten Eyes With Potatoes
Nobody likes to deal with puffy eyes, skin discoloration or dark circles. Did you know potato slices can make your eyes look radiant? They contain many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, fiber and others. In addition to this, they have natural bleaching agents to even your skin tone. Make sure to slice them thin so they are more flexible.

4. Use DIY Face Masks
There are numerous natural mask recipes online, and the ingredients are easy to find. One simple example is oatmeal, avocado and milk. Mix one avocado with 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of rolled oats in a blender or with a mixer. Slather it on your face, and let it sit for 30 minutes. If you want to add some vitamin C, place fresh peach slices on your face after washing off the mask.

5. Improve Nails With Lemon Slices
If your nails are brittle or if you have used acrylic nails for a long time, you may notice a persistent yellow coloring. Gently rub lemon slices on your nails twice per week for about one minute on each nail to whiten them.

Dazzle That New Year’s Party with These Beauty Products

Do's and don't's for dramatic lashesArrive at end-of-the-year celebrations with New Year’s-worthy looks and super-glam style. Makeup, hair, clothes and accessories are key, but prepping with indulgent beauty treatments will make you feel luxurious and beautiful. What better way to walk in oozing confidence and glamour?

Early in the Day

Allow plenty of time to relax. There’s nothing less radiance-inducing than rushing around and stressing yourself out, so clear your schedule in advance. Set the stage for a fun-filled evening with a pre-party soak.

The Bod Squad by Bliss contains all the essentials. Soften and relax with citrus- and sage-scented Soapy Suds and Body Butter. Feel slinky in your holiday outfit by applying skin-firming Fatgirlslim. Get your digits ready for hugs and hand-holding with High Intensity Hand Cream.

Party Prep Basics

Today is not the time to try new products or intense treatments. Skin sensitivities could cause all eyes to be on you for the wrong reason. Test new products well in advance to prevent bad reactions. If your skin is prone to redness, scaliness and rashes, stick with hypoallergenic products made for sensitive skin. MD MOMS Baby Silk is a fragrance-free head-to-toe cleanser that gently cleans adult skin too.

Sloughing Off

Exfoliating gives you radiant, baby-soft skin. Glamglow Youthmud gently resurfaces skin and triggers collagen synthesis for a younger look. Apply this or another exfoliating product early in the day for best results. Moisturize within two minutes of exfoliating to provide a smooth, glowing canvas for your makeup palette. Follow with a rich, intense eye moisturizer like Babor’s HSR Lifting Extra Firming Eye Cream.

Making Up is Easy to Do

Keep under-eye circles and other imperfections at bay with concealer. New Year’s parties demand a flawless look. If you weren’t born with perfect skin, consider a full-coverage option like Dermablend Cover Creme. Even if you usually go au naturel — makeup-wise, that is — tonight calls for a foundation made for your skin type. Heavy powder ages almost anyone, but a little bit looks polished and pretty. Apply a light dusting of translucent powder, avoiding the under-eye area.

Tonight is the night to break out that smoky eye or vamp-y red lipstick. Just be sure to perfect the look well in advance by practicing and watching online video tutorials. Put on your holiday best, spritz on a chic fragrance, stash some oil-blotting tissues, and you’re ready to ring in the new year in style!

It has been really hectic here at Beauty Bridge lately and there is lots of work to be done but I have to say I have been having a hard time concentrating on anything but the new Spring/Summer 2013 makeup and nail collections! Our buyer is so awesome! From GloMinerals to Too Faced to Deborah Lippmann I have a feeling this season will be the best so far! To make matters worse I have 750 BBVIP reward points that will get me a pretty hefty discount. And even though that may seem awesome it also means that this weeks’ paycheck may be devoted to my new spring and summer makeup wardrobe! Who needs lunch when you could have lipstick?

And lately it seems that a lot of our customers agree with me. Our international orders are skyrocketing and our domestic ones have been following suite. Our new 24 hour customer service agents can’t keep up with all the product questions and requests. Everybody is primping and prepping for spring and summer and come fall they will be thankful because all those points will add up just in time for the holidays. As far as our store is concerned, we have been doing some spring cleaning and it looks so amazing with all the new collections on display. If you haven’t already, please stop by and check out what we have. Our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you
