The Sorority Secrets Beauty Tips

Beauty on a budget. We’re sure you like the sounds of that just as much as we do! As former sorority girls, we always thrived on beauty products that could make us look great, without breaking the bank. Let’s face it: It’s pretty expensive to be a woman! Frequent trips to the mall or nail salon seem to always find their way on our “To-Do” List. Therefore, keep your money for those important rendezvous and save on some fabulous beauty products. We’re a sucker for great deals and have a loyalty to some of the greatest brands that perhaps you may not know about. We will walk you through some of our favorite beauty products.

First up, check out Ali’s beauty favorite.

Ali was never much of a lipstick wearer (she’s always been a gloss kind of girl), but she recently got into some colorful hues from Mac. Her absolute favorite is a bright pink called Candy Yum Yum. The color is highly pigmented, leaving a bright pink pop of color…and making a beautiful makeup statement for a fun night out! Candy Yum Yum was formerly a limited edition color from Mac, but it became part of their permanent collection earlier this year. We’re happy it’s here to stay, because we’re hooked! Ali still loves the more natural lipgloss color for daytime (her favorite is Angel Lipglass from Mac), but something bright is always fun to change it up a bit.

Do you want luscious BIG locks? Then Sakura has the perfect hair products for you!

Sakura likes big hair (and she cannot lie)! The bigger the better, right? Sakura is really picky about the texture of her hair and hates using hairspray so her hair of choice is the Bed Head- SuperStar Blowdry Lotion. A lot of the other volumizing products that she has used before made her hair sticky and ‘rough’ whereas the SuperStar Lotion actually detangles her hair and makes her hair much smoother when volumizing it. Not to mention, it smells good! You can usually  get this hair product anywhere that sells hair supplies for about $17.00, but Sakura recommends buying it from Amazon since it’s usually sold there cheaper. The bottle also lasts her about 3 months so definitely worth the money!

Beauty is not just about the makeup on your face, it’s about maintaining your face too! Just ask Karen!

Karen is in love with a very cheap facewash that she uses every night before she goes to sleep and it is called Basis face wash. With a couple of squirts, Basis cleans off makeup from every part of your face (including your eyelashes, which is very important to her being a mascara wearer).Not many face washes act as both a makeup remover and facial cleanser, but Basis Facewash satisfies both. Karen likes to call this facewash the “$5 facewash” because it really is that inexpensive. You can get Basis face wash pretty much anywhere nowadays. Places that sell this amazing face wash include: ULTAWalmart, Target, and now even some grocery stores (people are catching on!).

So there you have it! Just a few of our beauty tips. Want to learn more about these beauty products or be in on more secrets from The Sorority Secrets? Check us out at!
