glow & tell: MARY JOY TATTOO

SO HAPPY TO SHARE MARY JOY TATTOO’S BEAUTY SECRETS

love her and love her work, especially my rose tattoo she did for me a coupla years ago! {Can’t wait for my next ones!!!}


What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given or have discovered? The baking soda facial! I found this one online looking for an easy exfoliating facial. It’s great for sensitive skin and leaves my skin smooth, and free of dead skin and oil. After washing with my normal face wash {Castille Soap}, I put two to three teaspoons of baking soda in my palm, add a bit of water and gently massage it into my face with my fingertips using circular motions. Don’t forget to use it on your lips too… {they look great after this exfoliation}. I finish with a bit of pure witchhazel and oconut oil to moisturise.

What are your best time-saving beauty tips? Take a shower at night before bed. That way, my hair dries naturally {so less damage from the blow dryer} and I put it up in a soft scrunchie so it has volume in the morning. I am a busy mom so I have no time to wash and blow dry hair in the morning. I also wash my face throughly after the day, and use coconut oil to moisturise so my skin gets full hydration all night.

What are your can’t live-without beauty products?
Wet n’ Wild Liquid Liner (I’ve tried all the expensive ones and this cheapie is still my fave); Kat Von D Foundation and Long Lasting lip colours…especially ‘Outlaw’; Coconut Oil {I use it to moisturise and remove makeup}; Dr. Bronner’s peppermint Castille Soap {I use it for face and body wash}; and Nars blush and highlight.

Any beauty disasters? Once I tried to shave the back of my hair by myself…I ended up going too high and had to rock a Chelsea cut. which I did enjoy, so there was a silver lining…

Fave beauty icon? I can’t pick just one…Siouxsie Sioux, Louise Brooks, Theda Bara, Anjelica Huston, Vali Myers, Stella Grassman, Trixie Richardson…

Fave beauty look: Black clothes, pointy boots, lots of silver necklaces and rings with a leather motorcycle jacket. Pale face, blood red lip and black liquid liner.
