Josie’s Got A Tip For Us

I asked GH fave Josie Maran for a beauty tip she could so lovingly divulge to us.  Well, Josie is all kinds of generous, because she gave me more than one.  Her beauty and her strong beauty standards had me sitting up straight, eager for what she was going to share…I’m sure you are too.

So let’s cut to the chase.

It’s Josie tip time.

 I’m a firm believer that you can’t go anywhere without mascara.  Even one coat opens up the eyes. Look for mascara with a fragrance-free formula containing organic ingredients like Jojoba oil, Argan oil and Beeswax – these condition and strengthen lashes

And here is Josie’s other go-to, that works especially well on the mascara you wore all day.

Organic and fair trade coconut oil is truly pure and makes an excellent moisturizer for the face and body (it’s also great as an eye makeup remover)

Josie, keep those tips coming!  You can be as chatty as you want with us!

What’s your “go-to” cosmetic that you can’t leave home without?  Share in the comments below!


  1. I agree – just a sweep of mascara makes a huge difference. I never thought of coconut oil as a makeup remover (I used to use vaseline years ago when I was uneducated!) – I love this idea. Who doesn’t want to smell like vacation?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your new digs Mo! I just want to hang out here all day. Congrats to you and Happy Birthday to GH!

    • Heather, I too love my mascara and will be sweeping coconut oil over my eyes to remove makeup. Why not treat everyday as vacation? Maybe I’ll put up some palm trees on GH so you’ll vacation here 😉

    Love the new GH, great job Mo!!!!!! Thanks for the fab tips. I love mascara, but a lipgloss is my constant need!!

  3. lip balm. I love coconut oil for the ends of my hair and just started using it as a facial moisturizer as well!
    Love the new look, so you.

    • Jean, I am a big fan of coconut oil as well. My colorist last week touched my hair and said that it wasn’t dry as usual (I highlight my hair, my vice) and I told her that I have been dressing the ends with coconut oil. Such a power hitter that coconut is!

  4. I have to say….lip. Lipstick, lipgloss, tinted lip balm. Whatever. I always have it on, even if I’m in sweats running errands.
    Love the new look here on GH!

    • Thanks, Angela! Lipstick is definitely my go-to as well. That pop of color really affects how I walk out the door…oh, that powerful tube!

  5. These are great tips! I never leave home without my nails and toes done! I treat them like my daily accessory and have fun with bold colors:).
    Happy Birthday GH!
