I want to talk a little bit about beauty magic.
WARNING: LONG POST AHEAD.
To make a long, sad story short, I always hated looking in the mirror because I hated what I saw. I thought I was an ugly fuck and I’d avoid the mirror as much as I could to not see who was staring back at me. When I came upon witchcraft, overtime, I realized that I was neglecting myself of being who I am, beautiful.
I really love incorporating magic into what can make me feel beautiful and empowered and the way I do so is by using music beauty magic to aid me while I take showers, put on makeup, get dressed, etc. It has helped me see that I am truly beautiful for who I am with flaws and all, and I would like to share with you that you too are just as beautiful as I. We are beautiful.
Lets take this one step at a time:
Morning Slumps to Magic Mornings
For me, this is one of the hardest parts of my day. I look like hell; makeup smeared, hair in knots and messy, clothes twisted, goop in eyes, morning breath, I mean, mornings are just not my thing and I have truly felt disgusting while working my way up to getting ready. While thinking to myself how gross I am, it made me less ambitious and made me less willing to look past what I found ugly. So as I brushed my teeth, took a shower, and got ready for my day I already had in mind how ugly I am by focusing on the negative. Thoughts are SO powerful and what we think is what we will see.
Beauty Magic Tip One: Make a playlist called “Beauty” or a title that makes you feel empowered/beautiful. Have your coffee, eat your breakfast, whatever your routine is. Make your playlist and only put in songs that make you feel beautiful, music that makes you feel sexy, and strong. When you are finished with your morning routine, brush your teeth, and when you are done turn on your playlist. Take a shower while you have that playlist going and think about how beautiful you are and how strong your are.
If you sing the songs as you shampoo/condition/wash your body you are washing that beauty all over you and having it soak into your pores and washing off any negativity that lingers. You don’t have to sing, only do if you are comfortable with it.
If you are a witch who can’t be open with your magic this is a great way to do beauty magic since you are alone (well, assuming, haha) in the shower. The most you have to worry about is having someone ask you to turn down the music or tell you to stop singing in case you are too loud.
If you are a spoonie witch this is a great way to do powerful magic because all you need is your thoughts and a playlist for your tools (and your voice if you choose to sing).
Based off of experience (I take hot ass showers) your electronics can get ruined in warm and humid places overtime if you have them in the bathroom with you, if so, make sure that you keep the bathroom well ventilated.
I hate to admit it but sometimes while I am showering and I get really into a song and I dance a bit (fuck can’t believe I admitted it but moving past, haha) just please be careful. There have been a couple times where I have almost fallen, haha.
Beauty Magic Tip Two: While you get ready for your day (doing your hair, getting dressed, putting on your makeup) have your Beauty playlist going on and think about how beautiful you are and sexy you are. This can aid in getting you energized for the day ahead.
If you would like, while you get ready and listen to your encouraging music keep a rose quartz on/near you. This can add that little extra oompf.
Again, a great way to incorporate magic if you are one who can’t be open with your craft. Who is going to tell you that you can’t listen to music and get ready at the same time?
If you are a spoonie witch this is a great way to do powerful magic because all you need is your thoughts and a playlist for your tools (and your voice if you choose to sing).
This is just me personally but I can’t sing and put on makeup, that ends in the result of stabbing myself in the eye, haha. Be careful dearie!
Rose quartz is one of many crystals that can be used to add a little extra loving energy / beauty magic. If you feel connected to another crystal that makes you feel beautiful use it!
If you are a spoonie witch don’t overwhelm yourself. Chronic pain can sometimes get the better where you can’t get ready like you want for your day, and that’s okay. All you need are your positive thoughts and have your playlist going, you are beautiful.
Afternoon Blues to Swingin’ Days
Afternoons are where I feel the most sluggish because its the middle of the day and I am still busy doing my shit (cleaning, working, so forth). Afternoons can feel as if they drag on because you are waiting for the work/school day to be over with so you can go home and chill the fuck out.
Beauty Magic Tip Three: While your are working/in school and you have a moment to yourself just think about how gorgeous you are. Keep a positive attitude about yourself because words and thoughts are powerful.
You can bring along with you a self love spell jar/sigil/crystals along with you to work/school and keep it tucked away in your purse/wallet/backpack where ever as long as it is on your personally.
All you need for this are your thoughts and positive vibes. Great for spoonie witches.
You can honestly do this whenever throughout the day since all you need are your thoughts. I just like doing this while in the middle of my day because it is a gentle reminder that I am beautiful no matter what I am doing.
Again, use any kind of crystal that resonates with you and beauty.
Beauty Magic Tip Four: When the day is finally over and you are on your way home put on that playlist and sing your heart out.
If you are underage and aren’t driving yourself and have to ride the bus or carpool with others but still want to listen to your playlist on your way home, plug in your headphones. You don’t have to sing, singing is just a bonus. Listen to the music, let yourself feel beautiful.
If you are driving yourself home, (this is just me personally) but I crank up the music and sing my ass off bring in the loving vibes after a long day.
Gloomy Evenings to Enchanting Nights
I love nighttime. For me, it’s the time to really get connected with my being. The stars shine down on our hearts showing us that glitter of beauty that we each carry. We are all apart of the universe, that beauty is always within us as long as we are willing to open our eyes and see the natural beauty that we hold.
Beauty Magic Tip Five: Nighttime shower, read Beauty Magic Tip One along with notes and bonus section. This method can be applied to night and morning showers.
Beauty Magic Tip Six: Magical baths allow us to soak in the properties of whatever kind of magic we are doing. Fill your bath up with water, add bubbles if you would like, and before you get in put on your Beauty playlist. Instead of singing, just listen. Let the words soak into your pores as the water will do.
You can add candles, herbs, essential oils, incenses, crystals around your bath that are related to beauty/loving energies.
A great way for witches who can’t be open about their craft to do magic because you are taking a bath, you can say you just need to relax after a long day.
Awesome for spoonie witches. You are soaking in the tub of your beauty and all you need is your thoughts and playlist going.
If you are using essential oils/herbs make sure you DO YOUR RESEARCH. Don’t use anything that can be harmful for your body.
If you are using crystals make sure you DO YOUR RESEARCH. Don’t use any crystals that will dissolve in water, or can’t be near water, or that can make your water toxic in case accidents happen.
It’s best that you don’t have your phone on your during this bath. Focus on yourself, on your beauty, and all the love you should be giving to yourself.
Personally, when I do this I don’t like to sing (and I love singing, haha). One, because it is nighttime and people in the house are asleep. Two, because I like to completely lose myself in the bath and relax. So keep the music low and peaceful so you can soak up all that beautiful energy.
Don’t have your electronic on the edge of the tub while your music is going. Personally, I use my phone (its an iPhone, all my music is there) and I don’t know about you but I am a clumsy fucker and I can’t afford losing that shit, haha. So keep your music going somewhere in ear shot (on the vanity or on a shelf in your bathroom, wherever water won’t damage your electronics.)
Beauty Magic Tip Seven: I have acne issues and they bug the shit out of me but it doesn’t mean I’m not beautiful. So before I go to bed I wash my face (with lavender soap) and put on a special remedy I personally make to get rid of my acne. After your shower or before you go to bed, washing your face is a BIG helper to keep yourself beautiful. Keep a special towel that is specifically used for washing your face. Cleaning your face with some water and soap that is proper for your skin can do you wonders. While you wash your face think how powerful you are and how beautiful you are.
If you have acne and are curious about my remedy watch this video to see how I do it.
You can have your Beauty playlist going on as you wash your face, adding that that extra oompf of gorgeous to your magic.
This is a great way to incorporate magic if you are one who can’t be open with your craft. If someone asks what you are doing all you have to say is that you are taking care of yourself, which, well you are!
If you are using the acne remedy of mine make sure that you are able to use it. It contains tea tree essential oil, not everyone can use that for their skin so please DO YOUR RESEARCH. I am not responsible for if something goes wrong because I am warning you now what works for me may not work for you, so test the waters and make sure you use ingredients that are safe for your skin.
While washing your face keep your electronics away from you if you are playing your Beauty playlist as you wash your face. This is just from personal experience but I am a messy fucker when it comes to washing my face. I wish I could be as graceful as those ladies on TV splashing water on my face with no effort, but yeah, this is real life and water gets EVERYWHERE. So, if you are like me, keep that in mind if you want your music playing.
You don’t have to have music going, it’s optional. I just love music and incorporate it with anything magical I do.
This can be overwhelming for spoonie witches (especially if you are one who has chronic pain in hands/wrists) because you are in motion washing your face so do what you can, if it is too painful to do then I recommend not doing this.
Beauty Magic Tip Eight: As you are laying in bed, right before you fall asleep say out loud, in your head, or whisper “I shine bright like my brothers and sisters of the night sky.” or “I am beautiful.”
Sleep with a rose quartz crystal to have the beauty of yourself always be with you, even in your dreams.
You can honestly say anything you’d like before you fall asleep, the two examples I provided are just ones that I say. Anything along the lines to you being beautiful will bring you beauty and charm.
You don’t have to use rose quartz. If you connect to another crystal that provides you the same beautiful/loving energies use it!
I wanted to save these for the very end.
Beauty magic isn’t so that others will see you and think “Holy fuck, they are SO beautiful. I MUST HAVE THEM.” It isn’t like that. This kind of magic is about you seeing yourself as beautiful.
Regarding your playlist, you can have ANY music that makes YOU feel beautiful. If the song makes you feel strong, sexy, beautiful, charming, empowered, whatever go ahead and use it!
This is just a taste of music from my personal Beauty Playlist to help you get an idea:
Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton, Sugar Magnolia by Grateful Dead, She Is Beautiful by Andrew W.K., Oh Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison, Lovingest Woman In Town by Albert King, Humans by The Scene Aesthetic, My Little Girl by The Jeff Healey Band, Cigarettes and Coffee by Otis Redding.
Like I said, you can use whatever kind of music you want as long as you feel beautiful. (Don’t be rude, please don’t give me any shit for my taste in music.) ____________________
So there we have it, a list of different ways you can incorporate beauty magic within your lives, and yes I know most of the tips have something to do with music but I am someone who incorporates music into everything I do magically.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you use these tips, let me know how it works for you and tell me what you added to make it your personal style.

Unknown Number: [text] Good day your highness, this is Obi-Wan Kenobi. I would like to inform you that I have a new number, m’lady. Satine: All right, thank you for letting me know! Obi-Wan: Yes and also I am greatly interested in knowing how you are faring on this day my dear sweet Mandalorian flower. Satine: What? Obi-Wan: Mayhaps we could talk at length about the many times we’ve spent together and the reasons why we chose to part. Satine: Obi-Wan, this is strange. Are you all right? Obi-Wan: I am most well my dearest Duchess just wishing to reminisce about days long gone! 💐
Satine: Obi, I think I’d better go. Maybe you should rest?
[Obi-Wan Kenobi has sent an image.]
Satine: What is this? Obi-Wan: It is a picture of me on my last mission, where my hair was the color of a beautiful Mandalorian sunset much like the many we saw together all those years ago. Obi-Wan: You know I have heard that one of the other Jedi I know may be married in secret! Perhaps there is hope for us yet, my darling, and we could go on double dates and travel the universe together with them! Satine: Obi, can you please call me? I am worried about you. Obi-Wan: Alas I cannot for I am in a mission briefing, my dear one! I must speak with you another time. Satine: Are you absolutely sure you are all right? Obi-Wan: Most certain, though I will be in agony until I can see your face. Surely you have only grown more beautiful, for a Duchess. Satine: What does that mean?! Obi-Wan: I must go now, away to save the universe with my brave and handsome friend Anakin Skywalker The Chosen One, while my very soul remains in Mandalore! 🌹
Obi-Wan: Anakin, please pay attention to what Master Windu is saying. I can see you typing on your phone from here. Anakin: sorry master Obi-Wan: Who are you even talking to right now? Anakin: no one master sorry ill pay attention

while you take your coat off. He sits back down after helping you with your
chair and hands you the menu so you can decide what you wanted to eat, even
though you always order the exact same thing. Alex and you have been friends
for a while, pretty much since he moved to buffalo and you had run into him in
the same coffee shop you are sitting now. It was a cute, almost hipstery,
coffee shop, but they also have incredible soups and sandwiches.

towards your table.
do you need more time?” Monica asks, her voice as sweet as always.
“I think we
are ready.” Alex says, looking at you so you can order first.
“Can I have
a strawberry lemonade and the tortellini soup?” You say and Monica nods with a
smile, writing it down on her notepad.
the tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich, a small Caesar salad, a black
coffee and a blueberry muffin.” Alex says with a smirk as Monica’s hand glides
quickly over the paper, writing down Alex’s long order and walking away with a
quick ‘thank you’ and a big smile.
have a ‘diet’ to follow?” You ask, quirking an eyebrow. You are messing with
him; you know that he could eat a whole elephant and not gain a pound. Those
are the perks of being a professional athlete and having a killer metabolism.
“Shut up, I
had a workout this morning and I’m starving.” He defends himself and you
chuckle, looking through the window and looking at the people walking down the
street. “So, what’s the huge favor? Do you need me to pay for your lunch?” He
smirks, but your heart starts racing at the speed of light.
It is kind
of dumb, almost cliché, but you might have fallen for the blonde Swede. You
have always thought that those romcoms where the girl meets the guy in a very
embarrassing situation and they fall in love were really dumb so, because karma
is a bitch, it has happened to you. But the thing is, there isn’t a thing in
Alex that you don’t like; you love the way he smiles all the time, how hard
working he is, how much he loves his family, how he is always there for you
even when he is away… you even love the way he sticks his tongue out on every
picture you take together.
you won’t laugh until I’m done talking and then you will think about it as
something serious.” You say and Alex grins, but he sticks out his pinky and you
hook yours with his. “So, you know that I have a wedding next month –”
cousin’s wedding, right?” Alex cuts you off, remembering the conversation you
two had a couple weeks back.

the thing is that I was going to go alone to the wedding, but yesterday I had
dinner with the women in my family and they made me feel terrible about

doesn’t say anything. “I’m so done hearing ‘you should have a boyfriend at your
age’ or ‘you are not getting any younger’. They don’t even know if I have a
boyfriend or not but they assume I don’t and ugh…” You cannot contain your

calm down. The whole thing always makes your blood boil, because your family
makes you feel like you are not worth loving at the tender age of twenty.
“So what I
wanted to ask you is… and just to be clear, you don’t have to do it. Don’t do
it out of pity or –“ You start rambling, but Alex cuts you off again.

just need someone there to get through it and –“

struggling to zip your dress all the way up when you hear the doorbell. You
tried to pull it up once again, but the zipper wasn’t collaborating, so you end
up holding your dress against your chest and opening up your front carefully so
no one outside can see you as Alex comes in.
you help me with the zipp –“ You start saying, but your mind goes blank when
you see him. He is wearing a tailored black suit that fits in all the right
places, a black shirt and a black detailed tie. Who has told him that you love

chuckles, brushing his hair back before walking towards you and making you turn
around to zip up your dress. The long dress is dark blue and hugs your curves
beautifully, with a plunging cleavage and small beads that shine when the light
hits them. Your hair is up in a messy up do, your makeup is really natural and the
only jewelry you are wearing is a pair of silver earrings that go with your
heels and clutch.

the most beautiful date tonight.”
feel your cheeks boiling, so you turn on your heels and walk to your room to
grab your small clutch and throw your wallet, lipgloss, phone and keys inside
before walking back to the living room where Alex is waiting for you. You two
walk out of your house and Alex helps you get in his car before walking around
it and getting in himself, turning on the engine and joining Buffalo’s traffic.
says, reaching over the console and enveloping your hand into his bigger one.
“It’s going to be okay. We are going to have a great night.”
butterflies in your stomach are doing back flips as Alex runs his thumb over
your hand. You didn’t want to go to the wedding at first, not wanting to be
that girl that is alone and needs her uncle to take her to the dance floor so
she isn’t just sitting there by herself, but with Alex next to you it might
even be fun.
must make good money playing hockey.” Your uncle says, taking another sip of
having a great time until it was time to sit down and eat. You are surrounded
by all your close relatives and they are interrogating Alex like this was a
crime scene and not a wedding. You are embarrassed beyond yourself, but Alex
seems to have no problem answering all the questions your uncles are throwing
guess I do.” Alex shrugs, reaching over the table and lacing his fingers with
yours as you wait for the cake. He has been doing it all night, taking your
hand, wrapping his arm around you and overall making sure you feel comfortable
and you are having fun.
the first man she has introduced us.” Your grandma is quick to point out,
making you roll your eyes.
granddaughter is a gorgeous and smart woman, she should be selective.” Alex
says and you smile at him, muttering a ‘thank you’. No one has really asked if
you two are dating, they have just assumed you are and neither Alex nor you
have corrected them.
grandma seems pleased with his answer and you are really happy that the waiters
are serving the cake because you are really done with the family talk. After
eating the cake it was the turn of the first dance and speeches, which have you
tearing up at how in love your cousin looks as her now husband gives his
speech. Alex has moved his chair closer to yours and has his arm around your
shoulders as you lean against him and wipe your tears with a tissue, trying to
not ruin your make up.
let’s celebrate!” The groom says and everyone raises their glasses on a toast
for the new couple.
you mingle for a little bit, signing the guest book and taking a couple
pictures on the photo booth, which turn out to be really funny and cute. You
are about to go to the bar and ask for glass of water when the first slow song
of the night comes up; you recognize quickly, ‘In case you didn’t know’ by
Brett Young is one of your favorite songs.

smile at him and he takes it as a yes.
Dancing with Alex feels natural, his hands
resting on your hips and your arms wrapped around his neck as you two sway back

dropping. Of course someone like Alex wouldn’t be with someone like you. “I’d
love to stop pretending and just make it official. I’ve liked you for I don’t

way but I just needed to say i…”
your lips against his before he can even finish the sentence. You catch his off
guard, but he is quick to react, his lips moving in perfect synchrony with
yours as his hands pull you even closer to his body. The moment is absolutely
perfect, more than you have ever daydreamt off, as you pull away to look at his
blue eyes, which are shining like the most beautiful stars in the sky.
this isn’t a favor anymore…” He whispers and you chuckle, resting your head on
his shoulder as the last notes of the song are played.
“In case you didn’t know, baby I’m crazy about
you. And I would be lying if I said that I could live this life without you.”
This took me longer than expected, sorry… (Uni
