Twitter Contest: CVS Wants to Know Your #BeautySecret

It’s no secret that we all have a few beauty secrets that we swear by. Throughout the month of February, CVS Beauty Club wants to know what’s your hush-hush trick to looking lovely?

Being raised in a house with my mom and two older sisters, I learned quite a few beauty hacks that I’ve since adopted. But, I actually discovered my all-time favorite tip on my own. Before I had kids, I traveled A LOT. I was in and out of airports quite frequently. That said, one day in the airport bathroom I looked in the mirror and my face looked like an oil slick! I didn’t have any blotting papers so I opted for the next best thing—toilet seat covers!


Yep, it may sound a bit gross, but trust me they work like a charm. Just be sure to grab a few from the back to ensure cleanliness. They’re thin and super absorbent! Plus, just like real blotting papers they remove excess oil without ruining your makeup.

So when I’m out and about and need to de-shine, these are my go-to!  You can even purchase them at office supply stores for a much better value than official makeup blotting papers.

One other tip that I do is that I always use a liquid liner like Maybelline’s Eye Studio for my upper lids for a perfect cat eye, but for my bottom lids I use colored eyeliners like a deep plum or a dark forest green for an unexpected pop that looks almost black, but wit.
