I find that blue-based reds look best on me. My e.l.f. favorites are the Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet and the Mineral Lipstick in Cheerful Cherry, both of which are blue based reds. Warmer-undertoned gals should try the Moisturizing Lipstick in Velvet Rope, as well as the Matte Lip Color in Rich Red, all brighter,…
  • e.l.f. halloween how-to: SEDUCTIVE KITTEN

    16 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
      MEOW Elfette! I see a ton of human-kitties running around on halloween and wish I could make them all look this fierce. It's probably the easiest costume to throw together last minute for an office party or a night out. I'm definitely guilty of putting together the kitty costume on a few Halloween events! Let me tell you exactly how to get this look, using our Halloween Beauty Books! I used the "WICKED" book for this kitty. STEP 1 Using the black eyeliner from the e.l.f. Wicked Beauty book, begin to draw over your lids and fill in a "cat eye"…
  • Look of the Week: Zendaya's Vampy Shadow

    14 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Source: Shutterstock Zendaya Coleman is quickly becoming a superstar! I am loving this modern-vintage look she sported at a red carpet event earlier this week. She pulls out the vintage with her 20s-inspired bob haircut and her 50s-inspired silk taffeta dress, but her makeup look is full-on trendy! While vintage-inspired style tends to stay safe and sweet in the makeup department, Zendaya's look is vampy and sultry, made complete with gorgeous rose red eyeshadow! We've certainly got vampiness on the mind lately, what with the launch of #elfhalloween. Have you seen our new Halloween…

    Recently Renée Zellweger walked the red carpet looking very different. One writer at AskMen breaks down why we need to stop analyzing her face. When Renée Zellweger appeared at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, she looked very different from the actress who won an Academy Award after rising to fame 20 years ago. And a lot of people didn't like it. They suggested that she'd become a monster, a sunken-cheeked, puffy-faced victim of Botox and a Hollywood culture that is obsessed with youth, be it real or nipped, tucked, and injected. But those attacks - whether in…

    So here's the thing. I typically only wash my hair once a week. Okay, twice if it's really starting to bother me. But I can go a good four or five days before my hair gets oily or greasy, even at the roots -- so I don't really even use dry shampoo!

    In the mood for a deep hunter green manicure? Well, I was ... so I reached for Deborah Lippmann Billionaire. And let me tell you, this nail polish did NOT disappoint.For starters, the shade is uber chic. It's rich and highly pigmented, and so dark green it's almost black -- but still leans way more on the green side. God knows I love my jades, too (like OPI Jade Is The New Black, for example, which I will never tire of) ... but once in awhile, I just really want a shade that feels a bit more on the vampy side. Billionaire, with its slightly mossy hue, definitely delivers.One coat actually…

    Ever notice that celebrities can tuck their hair behind their ears on the red carpet like Reese Witherspoon and it looks like a style, but when you do it, it looks like you just needed to get your strands out of your eyes? There's a trick to it. You need to use a little product to slick that little bit down so it's nice and smooth and close to your head. Gel will do if you're a fan, but hairspray works too. It just holds everything down so it looks like you placed it there on purpose. It's an easy step to forget when you're styling your hair like this, but it's the big difference between a…

Hairstylist Christian Wood used a couple of sneaky hair-product techniques to fake highlights and give Dianna's platinum hair added dimension. When her hair was wet, he applied Oribe Gold Lust throughout. Then once he'd slicked the hair into this tight low ponytail, he misted on Oribe Superfine Hairspray to smooth flyaways.

Notice that she has a cat-eye made entirely of eyeshadow. This is a much more forgiving way to get the look, since you can smudge and redo eyeshadow much more easily than eyeliner, which often require remover for mistakes. It's not quite as retro or in-your-face as the usual liquid you'd use to get it, but, hey, sometimes the ratio of sweat to prettiness just calls for shortcuts. And this one is an easy one. Any of…

    10th: Dior (image from www.dior.com) . Dior’s 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes have been renewed for the brand’s fall 2014 makeup collection. Even though I don’t fancy getting any from the launch lineup at the moment, it does feature a good range of colors and finishes. I am sure we will see more variations soon. . 9th: Givenchy (image from www.givenchybeauty.com) . I like the combination of purple, brown and champagne gold in Givenchy’s Extravagancia Palette for fall 2014. Another item that caught my attention is the revamped Prisme Libre loose powder.

    Hope Girl Sand Beige Milky Balm Lipstick is a recent shade I got in my Memebox Superbox #58 Lipstick Box although I’m not new to the Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick formula as I did originally get one in my Hope Girl Memebox which I loved and another in the Memebox X Beauty Splurge with Lisa M. Pullano Box! Now I have three of these and thankfully all in different shades Sand Beige is a nice addition to my nude lipstick collection but you have to be careful with this one as it is a lighter tan so a case of zombie lip is easy enough to set in!

    Sleek Makeup Control & Shine Prime ($11.99) is a new Oil-Free Mattifying Facial Primer to control oil and act as a base for your foundation. If you recall I happen to be the biggest fan evers of Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector which I consider one of the best facial primers ever. Sleek Makeup Control & Shine Prime isn’t a dupe for it but the texture is very similar so I suspect if you love Becca’s as much as I do you’ll really love Sleek’s formula and might even consider it a nice beauty budget swap up!

They come in a red, metal tin (much like a mint tin), and each pencil is 0.05 oz. Full-sized pencils are $24.00 for 0.09 oz. or $266.67/oz., which makes this set worth $53.33. Sable and Winterberry seem to be exclusive to this, while Rhubarb and Pomegranate are part of the permanent range. I have reviewed a few shades previously here, and my experience with the pencils in this set are similar to ones I’ve had with full-sized, which is a good sign. All four…

    You can see that the candle above, Agraria Golden Cassis, has seen a lot of use since we got it a couple of weeks ago. I've always been very fond of Agraria products, but I admit that since my relationship with cassis can be described as "complicated", I might have skipped this one (the newest scent from the brand) and missed on a truly satisfying home fragrance that lives up to the promise of being "golden" and doesn't annoy the husband with excessive fruitiness (he actually really likes this scent).The first whiff of Golden Cassis is round, fruity, and luscious. No surprises, expect…
  • Gucci Peacock Magnetic Color Shadow Duo

    Gaia Fishler
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:23 am
    To be honest with you, I don't think that this Gucci Magnetic Color Eye Shadow Duo in Peacock was the best choice for me. I would have gotten much more mileage from Fume, Aristocratic, or even Malachite (all three are on my wishlist right now). But there was something irresistible about the brightness of the blue and purple shades in  Gucci's Peacock, and only one of them, is actually out of my comfort zone.The swatches you see above consist of one brush swipe (Shu Uemura N 10) over primed skin. It's a rather impressive pigment intensity even if the texture appears almost sheer. The navy…

    Gaia Fishler
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:34 am
    Here's my secret weapon these days: Vincent Longo Creme Gel Liner in Flamenco*. While Flamenco, a medium taupe, is not a classic eyeliner color, it works beautifully to lighten a heavy/dark eye makeup look (see an example using a gold eyeliner in Lisa Eldridge's Plum Chic fall makeup tutorial). But the real secret here is how between the color and the iron-like wear of this Vincent Longo mousse-like texture, I've been using Flamenco as a cream eye shadow.The whipped cream feel of the product is easy to apply and blend with a variety of brushes, natural or synthetic. It sets and dries…
  • Aftelier- Palimpsest

    Eden by François FoucrasThe best gift I can get from perfume is a a strong emotional reaction. Preferably a positive one. What I received from Palimpsest, the newest Aftelier perfume, was more than that: it is a feeling of well-being, comfort, and contentment. The luminosity goes beyond the notes, beyond the incredible quality of the raw materials; it's the olfactive representation of warmth and love that come from an eternal source. The result is both soothing and encouraging, heartwarming, and utterly divine.Perfumer Mandy Aftel defines Palimpsest on her Aftelier website as a…

The modern lace pattern translated better on larger surfaces, such as a blush compact, than it does on the cap of a lip gloss, but it's still unique enough (and helps locate the right gloss quickly). But we're here to talk about the actual colors of these NARS products.My choice from the Laced With Edge Collection were Almerĺa blush and  Burning Love lip gloss.

    Crystal
    7 Oct 2014 | 8:12 pm
    I’ve noticed that most of my girlfriends are more in tune with the particulars of their skin than their hair. Not to say that they have terrible hair, but it makes sense when you think about how skincare has one standard of beauty (flawless and smooth) but haircare caters to a handful of different desired looks (curly, straight, etc). Between new hair and skin products, it seems to me that haircare is much more trend-based. Like everyone by now, I knew of Brazilian blowouts, which my close friend has gotten done and loved, but I wasn’t aware of the company’s own hair products. The…

I can’t stress enough how critical this is, especially before and after working out. Key word is water. Sports drinks and juices don’t cut it…

    So if you've been following this blog, you have been with me through quite a bit.  A whirlwind of life changes and a couple of career changes.I started this blog in August, 2007.  Woah.  Seven years ago.  So much has happened in the last seven years.  I knew nothing about making soap when I started this blog.  I only knew that I just loved handcrafted soap and I knew that it needed to be in the spotlight.  If you didn't read this blog then, you may be interested how it all began.  You can go back to the beginning.  My first post asked people if…
  • Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!

    8 Jun 2014 | 4:42 pm
    I've always loved the scrubby manliness of an exfoliating bar of soap.  Something so perfect about scrubbing the dirt off my skin that makes me feel extra clean and feeling refreshed.  I think the only scrubby soap I did not care for was luffah soap.  I felt like my skin was being scraped off with razor blades.  And I like my soap rough, too.  Ground coffee, sand, volcanic rock, whatever....but you can keep your whole loofah and razors.  It's just not for me, thank you.SO I've been looking around at exfoliating soaps, loving the texture of seeing them, being that…

    Written by  Josh King, Avvo’s Vice President of Business Development and General Counsel American consumers have strongly embraced online reviews of goods and services.

    Operating with a Stanford plastic surgery resident in Guatemala The purpose of a plastic surgeon isn’t all about sculpting the bodies of the wealthy and famous. For many of these doctors, the role comes with a sense of responsibility to give back to those in need, from children abroad born with facial deformities to families right here in America who lack affordable access to medical care.

    Here’s a dose of #realtalk: More years don't necessarily get you more respect in the office. At least that’s what The New Republic was saying in its article exploring ageism and cosmetic surgery in cutthroat workplace environments. According to its interviewee, San Francisco-based plastic surgeon Dr. Seth Matarasso, working men in Silicon Valley have a pretty straight-forward goal: "Hey, I’m 40 years old and I have to get in front of a board of fresh-faced kids.

    Written by Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Donald Yoo When a prominent media personality speaks out about getting plastic surgery to “look less Asian,” as news anchor Julie Chen recently did, there’s a natural tendency for the mass media to label all Asian cosmetic surgery as an attempt to become “Westernized” — to look less Asian and more Caucasian. On E!’s plastic surgery reality show Botched, we heard the unfortunate story of Cheryl Ling, a Chinese...

    Jenny
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:43 am
    We’ve touched on chic fall lip colors in recent weeks, but let’s delve a bit deeper into the pool of what’s gorgeous right now. From nearly nude to deep and vampy, 2014’s autumn palette offers plenty of hues that will take you from day to night, whether you’re more into keeping things subtle or ready to break out a pop of boldness. Let’s play! For the alluring purple color up top, just make like the Little Engine that Could and tell yourself, I think I can, I think I can.

  • Fall & Winter Maternity: Problem Solved.

    Jenny
    17 Oct 2014 | 5:18 am
    Despite my constant whining, it was actually a lot easier to find maternity clothes for warmer temps. In my case, a smaller bump paired well with the summer weather but beyond that, a bohemian cotton frock is a lot friendlier to a widening middle than, say, denim can be. But as fall has made its firm appearance and I’m sure I’m not the only one with beach-ball-under-shirt days ahead, here are some of the best (reasonably priced) duds I’ve found for the season ahead. The hubs and I did our maternity shoot on Long Island last weekend, and despite the sun, it was chilly. I…
  • A Solid Foundation

    Jenny
    14 Oct 2014 | 4:08 am
    We all know that the most solid foundation you can have for a healthy face is the right skin care. That means removing makeup and washing at night, toning, moisturizing, and treating breakouts. And of course, sunscreen in the morning. But even the most diligent among us can find ourselves with imperfections of the skin like undereye circles, acne or other scarring, discoloration, and enlarged pores. Foundation fell out of vogue for a while but I’m so glad it’s back to help combat these skin woes and let us put our best face forward. Here are my top picks for fall. Dior Star The…

    As a mom-to-be in my eighth month of pregnancy, the nesting is in full effect. But when not working on my nursery or rearranging the kitchen cabinets for the ninth time in a week, I find great solace in searching the Interwebs for chic clothes I can put my little one in. Don’t get me wrong — I love cutesy, and we already own too many bows to count (yes, it’s a girl). But as a Brooklynite married to a dude born and raised in Manhattan, we need a little black in the wardrobe, too. I’ve found it shockingly tough to find black baby duds, and I’m not saying…

    Craving long, healthy hair? Me too! After a long summer of sun, chlorine and sweat, hair tends to be dry and damaged. It’s time to put some effort into nursing our hair back to health so it can grow! Here are 6 simple ways to give your hair the TLC it needs: Use a deep conditioner once a week. Too often and your hair will get “protein overload.” I experienced this when I was using a deep conditioner 3-4 times per week, trying to improve the condition of my hair. Instead, my hair was the opposite…it was dry and straw-like, which of course, breaks. My stylist told me to…

Fall can be tricky for style in So. Cal. I’m desperate for layers and boots. I’m staring longingly at the sweaters and jeans housed in my closet. I’d look ridiculous, and feel miserable, wearing a long sleeve tunic and leggings (my original outfit plan for this post) when it is still 95 degrees at 6 PM. Instead, I rely on fall hues and ankle boots to…

As a follow-up, I wanted to share a few tips for the guys on how to choose an engagement ring style if you’re shopping around for a ring and can’t seem to decide on a single one. Although I didn’t choose my own ring, which in retrospect was probably a good thing because really, how does one decide from all the different styles…

    The FingerPaints Patent Leather Manicure Kit for holiday 2014 is a limited edition set available now. This kit, as the name implies, features two shades with super glossy patent leather-like finish. It also comes with a shiny top coat to gloss up your tips even more. Patent Red Patent Red is a blood red creme. It has such an amazing, perfect formula. This nearly covered with one coat, but I did two “just because.” It really is very shiny, much shinier than most polishes are without a top coat.

  • Which kind of titanium dioxide is safer in sunscreens?

    Perry Romanowski
    17 Oct 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Kate G says…Now how are we able to tell which kind of titanium dioxide is used in our favourite cosmetics? (This question is in response to an article we posted on Facebook about the new research on the safety of titanium dioxide.) The Beauty Brains respond: First a quick bit off background and then we’ll explain what this new research means. As many of you may be aware titanium dioxide (TiO2) is very good at reflecting UV rays so it’s often used in sunblocks. Traditionally it has been considered to be a very safe ingredient because it is chemically inert and does not penetrate skin.

The Beauty Brains respond: We have to admit this entire advertising campaign does have the feel of an elaborate put on. (Check out the video for yourself…) However, if their website is to be believed, this is indeed a legitimate product.

Strip has a deep bronze shade with a hint of shimmer, a golden shimmery highlight, and a deep mauve blush that when swirled together with a fluffy brush gives you a sun-kissed look. Note: be careful when traveling as I had one that cracked and powder landed everywhere. Not sure how or why it happened but the cashier at Sephora told me the same…

It's been almost a decade since the blond bombshell first hit the Hollywood scene, and Blake has managed to become a star both on screen and off. She's beautiful and charming, and let's not forget one very big perk to being Blake: she's married to Ryan Reynolds. Most recently, the actress made headlines when she announced her pregnancy on her website, so let's take a look back at 40 times you couldn't help but wish you were Blake.

    Plenty of beauty products will freshen up your look, but for busy gals, none seems quite as perfect as hair color. Unlike wrinkle creams (which can take weeks to show results) or lipstick (which wears off faster than you can reapply), dying your hair delivers shiny, more vibrant color almost instantly -- and you get to enjoy the results for weeks without any upkeep. The best part: You can do it at home.

Ditto for two boys. But what happens if Charlene gives birth to a girl and a boy…and if the girl comes out first? That’s where it might get tricky.

While it’s always challenging to truly determine the root cause of any blemish, for some people the location of your blemishes could very well be an indication of the cause.  Chin and jawline. Consuming too much dairy can cause blemishes, particularly cystic acne (hard, painful bumps deep under the skin that linger for weeks) in this area. In Chinese medicine, breakouts around the chin and jaw line are representational of reproductive and hormonal systems. Also, since our dairy cows are…

As we age, capillary walls get weak and they start to permanently dilate and become more visible on the face, especially the cheeks and around the nose. Bioflavonoids help to give strength to blood vessels and capillaries internally so that they may not break or dilate as quickly.

If this sounds like you, then the product itself may not necessarily be to blame. The real truth is that you may not have been using that product long enough since some lines take longer than others depending on their formulas before you’ll notice changes.For instance, some anti-aging lines can take up to three months before you’ll notice a difference. Acne products show results faster.  Sometime, this type of skin care may take anywhere from six weeks to three months.On the…

    One of the most difficult things to master is the art of giftgiving, specially when you are attempting to share a sense of gratitude, significance, and accurate thoughtfulness through the piece which you are presenting to another individual. It can be an excellent challenge to discover just the right item for someone in your lifetime, as you must pay close attention to quite a few very particular details – as well as the standing of your connection and the significance your gift may communicate – before you’re able to safely ship out something you’ve purchased.

    Accidents happen. Have you ever sneezed, exercised or laughed a big belly laugh and leaked a little? I have and so have 1 in 3 women. For pregnant women and women past menopause, leakage is a serious issue. It’s embarrassing.  Research shows that 30% of women who suffer from urinary incontinence say it affects their relationship with their partner and 11% of women say their bladder issues have led to moderate to severe depression. Not so funny. Always Discreet offers a full range of urinary incontinence products for women to help make living with a sensitive bladder feel like no big…

    This subject is close to my heart, or er…my eyes! As an over 40 woman, I don’t wear a lot of bright eye shadows; neutral are my thang. That doesn’t mean however, that I have to look boring or sacrifice embracing the trends. I’ve found the the best way to spice my makeup wardrobe up is with colored eye liners. Every color of the rainbow is represented and the right shade can really flatter your eye color and make eyes pop!

    Fall Beauty Trends I don’t know about you, but I love fall. The new season brings leaves changing color, pumpkin everything, cooler weather, and no worrying about makeup sliding off my face in the summer heat. Try some of these trends when transitioning into the fall season. Lips   One of the biggest trends in beauty this fall is vampy lip color. Partly inspired by the grunge look of the 90s, this rich, dark lip was visible all over the runway, and recently on numerous celebs. Unlike in past years however, you can now rock a smokey eye, or darker shadows, with a dark lip, instead of the…

     OK, sure…summer is the  sexy season. (Research actually backs that up.) Less clothing, more free time, more vacations. We refuse to believe, though, that you can’t turn up the heat once the temperatures drop! Sexual researcher Alex Allman, author of the e-book Revolutionary Sex, says we are simply more relaxed June through August and that positive attitude makes us more open to sex. “The biggest inhibitor that I see when it comes to happy sex lives is just the normal pressures and anxieties of life,” he says. “It doesn’t bode well for…

Truth be told, I'll wear any sort of shade no matter what the season. Makeup Academy's Lip Color Crayon in Rose was quite intriguing for me because it's a UK brand brought here thanks to CVS.

Since I tend to favor lip makeup more, I often plan my looks around my lips. Weird, but true. For me, anything taupe generally solves this lip/eye conundrum. What first drew me MAC's Electric Cool Eye Shadow in Superwatt was that not only was it a taupe shade...but it was of a MAC eyeshadow texture and formula unbeknownst to me. And I thought I had my MAC bases covered!

A lifelong hand-protector who has preached far and wide on the need to keep those dainty nubbins of yours protected from the elements, I regularly shield my hands from the sun by either spraying them with a coating of 1-Million SPF (no, I don’t think that actually exists, but you get the idea) or wearing gloves.     Little white gloves, garden gloves…anything I can get my hands on.

There’s clearly a vision involved. Otherwise, I don’t know how you could throw so many different colors, textures and concepts into the blender, and make the final product look just so.

Part of the practice is focusing on all movements between and en route to Downward Dog, Plank and so forth. Your breathing, your body and grace are part of the whole yoga concert. And what happens on the mat during that 90 minute class can definitely be carried over into “real life.”   Just like in music how the pauses between the beats are equally important.   So taking this idea into your…

    27 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    First let me start off by telling you what HCG is. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin and it’s a hormone the body makes during pregnancy. When you take a pregnancy test; if the hormone is detected,congratulations you are prego! I always thought when I got pregnant that I would start gaining weight like crazy but that wasn’t the case. Back in July of 2012 I started losing weight without trying, by the end of July my period was late so that prompted me to take a test even though I was on the pill. It was + positive.

Red is always a staple for the fall/winter season, as it adds the right amount of color to any look.New Take on the Braid: The "Herringbone" braid combines two unique styles in one — slicked-back hair on top and a deconstructed fishtail braid on the lower half.

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.

    Your skin changes with the seasons, which means that your skin care needs to as well. Have you noticed facial and scalp “dryness” in fall and winter? It’s really common to have flaky face and scalp skin as the winter sets in. What you may not know is that the flaking of your skin may not be due to dryness. More likely it’s due to a rash called seborrheic dermatitis. The more common name for seborrhea is dandruff. Face and scalp dandruff affects both men and women of all ages. In my dermatology practice, I see many men who suffer from dandruff. They are often in the…

Nostalgic is a light salmon beige.  Noble Descent is a pearly, smokey mauve. I feel like it’s lighter than a traditional mauve- to me its more of a baby pink.

    Many consumer branded laundry detergents contain toxic ingredients. Whether it’s Diethanolamine, Quaternium-15, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or some other chemical, it’s a good idea to understand the harmful potential that ingredients such as these can pose to you and your family. But what about potentially harmful ingredients not shown on the label? Particularly Dioxane, which is a by-product of the process called ethoxylation, a cheap shortcut process many companies use to provide mildness (in other words, reduce risk of skin irritation) to harsh cleaning ingredients. This process…

    Loving the Lierac Magnificence Red Serum. It’s super light water-like gentle serum, doesn’t irritate my skin (so many skincare products do), it has a scent and is not perfume-free but it’s fruity and not too strong and doesn’t linger past makeup application. As a perfume-free skincare fanatic this works. I would say it’s very soothing to the skin and hydrating. Some days when I feel confident (ha) I only use this serum and nothing else. It’s a keeper. Forgot to mention the serum is red (which is pretty cool) when you first dispense but goes on clear.

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    You know what they say about California girls … actually I have no idea what they say, but for a brief week I was a San Francisco chick. I was flying out for work, so I decided to visit my soul sister who moved out to SF a couple of years ago for the weekend before all of my work duties began. We had a great time people watching on the bus, sweating to death as we walked to the Golden Gate Bridge, partying on a rooftop as we watched the Blue Angels and doing major damage at Sephora … obviously. The only thing on my list that I missed was Lombard St, but there is always next time.

While it’s been great to explore some new cities, each trip messes up my weekly routine, and I LOVE routine. It keeps me focused and sane because who needs spontaneity and fun anyways? As my eating and working routine flies out the window during work trips, I hold onto my hair and skin care routine with a death grip.

    There are two kinds of fashion in the world: high and popular. Of the former mindset, it’s no wonder Nars just named the illustrious Tilda Swinton as their latest face. A “living legend,” as François Nars, the luxury makeup company’s founder and artistic director, referred to the actress, Swinton will appear in four ads between January and April of next year. At 53, the British actress might not be the most conventional face, but that’s just how Nars prefers it.

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:12 pm
    by Lisa I’m 48 years old and have very dry skin. I’m a redhead with freckles, so combating dryness and wrinkles is a daily challenge. The damage done by the sun as I was growing up is now reflected in my face. I tested the Innarah Daily Moisture Crème ($225). I used it in the morning and am quite happy with it. Honestly, it’s hard to see differences when you look in the mirror at your face everyday. What makes me think it must be working is when people tell me “your skin looks really good”, which is what a few of my friends said the last couple weeks. One…
  • Allure Best of Beauty 2014 - Truth In Aging's Take

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    Allure has unveiled its 2014 Best of Beauty winners, but taking a closer look, I’d say many of these top picks are lackluster, at best. Between the toxic preservatives, skin irritants and silicones, these products boast ingredients lists that leave much to be desired. I’ve used my skin care savvy to assess the merits of a handful of these award-winners and reveal which ones are worthwhile and which are simply a waste. Allure Best of Beauty: Natural Wonders Kora Organics Daily Hand Cream ($43) The Kora brand is fronted by Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr. Although there is much to…
  • A Peek Inside Marta's Medicine Cabinet — Fall 2014

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:26 pm
    Whenever new beauty product testers come through our editorial pipeline, Marta can feel like a kid in a candy store. With that said, it's not always easy testing new products when you have sensitive skin. Often times, Marta begins testing a product on her neck, and then moves up to a less delicate area if there are no adverse reactions. And just like in all of our medicine cabinets, in Marta's you'll find her tried and true (ahem, E'shee KI), some new favorites she is openly obsessing over (Innarah), and some other products that are to be moved to the drawer of broken dreams. Get an inside…
  • Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Day Cream

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:16 pm
    I am in my late 30s with combination skin, and I routinely use products that brighten my complexion. I have few sun spots but some post-breakout marks that I tackle with Retin A, vitamin C serums and a glycolic moisturizer and toner. With the exception of Retin A, I have set all of these products aside to try Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Day Cream ($90 in the shop) and used it twice a day for eight weeks. Its main ingredient is sodium ascorbyl phosphate, which is a more stable form of vitamin C that does not degrade rapidly. The rest of the formulation is pretty standard. The only…
  • Beach Organics Angel Girl Makeup Remover

    20 Oct 2014 | 10:09 am
    by Wendy I tested the Beach Organics Angel Girl Makeup Remover ($22.50), and I love the ingredient list. I can pronounce everything and know what everything is and that it really is natural, not just “green-wash” marketing. Truly natural ingredients are very important to me, but the product also needs to work. This makeup remover’s three surprisingly simple and clean ingredients did the job. When I first received the product, I opened the jar to find a unique solid that instantly melted on the skin into oil. There is a faint aloe scent, which I liked. It is a clean smell…

  • Click, Click, Conceal!

    22 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    In lieu of heavy, theater-made concealers, we often prefer light-reflecting, ultra-fine textures to cover the delicate area underneath our eyes. It’s a tricky space, and any formula has to grapple with dark circles, puffiness, inner shadows, and crepey skin—all at once. That’s why we love sleek, travel-friendly pen concealers. Even though the twisting maneuver might be a little cumbersome to master in the beginning, we found three formulas that are worth the click!

  • Erase Those Eyebrows: Brow Coverage 101

    21 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    If you are an avid fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, then you’ve surely learned some secrets on how to beat a face. For instance, you may know the secret to eye-catching, creative faux brows begins with no brows, although taking a razor to your face is enough to spook even the fiercest queen. So what’s a bold beauty lover to do? You may be surprised to learn that one of the most useful brow-coverage tools is hiding not in your makeup bag, but in your craft closet! We’re talking your everyday Elmer’s glue stick. We picked up a few lessons in working with the paste backstage at the Chromat…
  • Trend to Try: How To Rock Straight Eyebrows

    20 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    South Korea is often the epicenter of innovative or unusual beauty trends, so it comes as no surprise that the straight eyebrow craze can trace its origins back to this fashion-forward country. “[Straight brows] are especially popular in cultures where the eyebrows are not naturally arched and have a tendency to grow in straight,” said Ramy Gafni, celebrity brow expert and founder of RAMY Beauty Therapy. “It eliminates the challenge of having to create an arch in the brow.” Some celebs are now rocking the straight brow, too, including Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba. Gafni continued:…

    Use this mud-to-oil mask once and you’ll be hooked. Glamglow’s Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment leaves your skin softer and brighter after one use, which makes it a great S.O.S. for dull skin in need of a pick-me-up. It works well on any skin type and is a great first mask for anybody new to the Glamglow line. While other Glamglow products each target one specific need, Powermud combines a little bit of each to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize, leaving your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. The first stage is a liquid-like mud mask that goes on in a thin, smooth layer and tightens as it…
  • Beauty Sideshow: Freaky Record Breaking Beauty

Now that we’re hooked on the haunting imagery from American Horror Story: Freak Show, we got to thinking about the freakiness of the beauty world. After all, the first international beauty contest was held by none other than P.T. Barnum of Ringling Bros. and Barnum &amp; Bailey Circus. If Mr. Barnum could create a sideshow glorifying more conventional assets, then those that possess more extraordinary features should be showstoppers.

To cover dark circles and the occasional redness I used long-lasting NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Set with MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus to even out the skin. I couldn't get enough of My New Winter Fragrance YSL Black Opium - if you haven't tried this yet I suggest you do!

Somehow YSL managed to reinvent the vanilla base with Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium. The coffee top note mixed with vanilla is reminiscent of a vanilla mocha (if that exists). It's an 'Adult Vanilla', not as sweet as Britney Spears Fantasy or Lancome La Vie Est Belle. It is a much sultrier and more sophisticated scent. The scent lasts long - well beyond 6 hours, sometimes you can even smell…

        I’m not one for crafts or going crazy with decorations but I do love to dive into books year round. For some reason maybe it has something to do with the start of the a new school year, I become obsessed with new books for the family every fall. Especially if the books have to do with fall.   Bramble and Maggie: Spooky Season by Jessie Haas and illustrated by Alison Friend is one of those books.  A great way to introduce chapter books to your child this book is geared for ages 5-8. This book is part of a series of Bramble and Maggie adventures.  I loved the…

    We hit up the pumpkin patch on Sunday, bright and early.  It was BLUSTERY.  There is no other way to describe the low temps and winds whipping through the air.  I was all set with a cute cableknit sweater when H said, “I think you need something more.”  Since the kids were already in the car I grabbed a sweater off the shelf that has seen a life very different from the one it keeps today. The Wooly Pully.   H wore it back in his Marine Corps days and after he moved on it somehow migrated over to my side of the closet. It is intensely warm, as it should be and I’ve only…

    Spending Saturday morning going through a long, involved, relaxing and necessary ‘day of beauty’ happens in haste or not at all now that the kids have their own lives budding and blossoming before our eyes.  Throw on a mask here, exfoliate over there, slap on some polish and don’t forget to shave!  It’s not my dream. It’s just the reality. This Saturday will be a bit different. I’m heading to BUBBLES at Home Depot Square in Bethesda, MD.  And if you are local, you can too!   I can’t wait!  An afternoon that includes a free blowout, a seated…

    I will totally admit it was harder than I thought to give up the gray last week.  And then not revert to black.  I love my basics, what can I say?  I was actually late meeting a friend for dinner on Thursday because I was trying to pry myself away from the black.  I showed up in white.  Sometimes I go to extremes. The pastels and gray post was more popular than I thought last week and I found more to love in Johanna’s post Watercolor. Johanna and her blog, 101 Things I Love have co-hosted with me before on Whatcha Wearing Wednesday and her style is untouchable.  I love seeing what…

    It’s no longer a secret that I have been busy overhauling our house.  It was like “OVERHAUL OUR LIFE” in a way.  I cleaned out so much and found many unused products.  A few came in and made the cut and here are my favorite keepers that I have been using to refresh myself and feel renewed through this whole house overhaul process.     Cloth masks are new to me.  I have been curious about them but didn’t want to spend the $99 for six masks that SK-II and other brands were asking of me.  The BioRepublic Skincare masks are $6.95 a piece or $24.95 for a four…

    Just as good as Touche Eclat! Gone are the YSL Touche Eclat monopoly days, I'm not saying it's not a good product because it is, but there are others that are just as good, if not better. The thing with classics is that other brands take them and make them better. I use highlighter pens all the time, the easy brush on pens are so easy to use and brilliant for lightening shadowy dark areas under and around the eyes, and the red areas beside the nose and round the mouth. They really do lessen signs of fatigue and imperfections by illuminating and perfecting, they look so much better and…

    Brilliant choices for natural looking bronzed goddesses*By natural I mean the natural looking effect they give, and that they're not a powder. Not sure what to call them as a group…non-powder bronzer options maybe? That doesn't slip of the tongue so well. A lot of people have a lot of love for bronzers, it really is a great product to give you a bit of colour mimicking what a real tan does..giving a healthy looking sun-kissed glow. But that's when it's done right, it's so easy to do bronzer wrong as we often see on fellow orange, stripy, patchy or muddy looking ladies.

My skin could be described as medium to dark with green undertones and most BB or CC creams ends up making my face look slightly ashy or like I went crazy with a really dark bronzer.

When clocking in (at least) eight hours per day, five days a week, it’s safe to say that – like it or not – our cubicles become our second home. They are the only areas of the office we can decorate to our little hearts’ content (unless you’re like me and have yet to start even after three years…) so our little office spaces often start to feel like our little sanctuary.

    Originally published as What Is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation? from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) refers to any type of skin discoloration left behind after inflammation (including the inflammation associated with acne). Often referred to as acne marks or macules, this form of hyperpigmentation occurs when inflammation triggers melanin production during the healing process. As blemishes start to clear up, reddish or brown spots take their place. Although PIH is often (misleadingly) grouped with acne scars, PIH is not acne scarring. Acne…

It’s known to significantly boost immunity, especially in children who get sick frequently. It also may help with asthma and improve digestive function and ability, explains Haspel. Even though it’s cows milk, raw milk typically doesn’t cause the same symptoms in those who are lactose intolerant as other cow’s milks.

    Drinking milk is a part of our culture, whether on its own or in all the other dairy products we consume, from cheese to yogurt to ice cream. But lately, traditional cow’s milk has come under fire because of the hormones and antibiotics given to the livestock that produce it, the negative environmental impact of dairy farms where it’s made, and the high fat content within it. (Plus, so many people are just naturally lactose intolerant.) Luckily, there are many milk alternatives out there. Almond milk is having a major moment, while formerly popular soy milk is on the way out. And…

While I love my bedroom as it is, it’s definitely not my dream bedroom and so that got me thinking what would my dream bedroom really be like? Storage is definitely a huge issue and so I love the idea of having storage that goes all around the room, hopefully making use of areas that perhaps otherwise wouldn’t…

    While the natural balding cannot be avoided when it comes to genetics, there are habits you might have that can cause your hair to thin. Make the changes in your lifestyle to prevent unnecessary hair loss, ensuring healthier hair for longer.   Avoid Brushing Wet   #81724815 / gettyimages.com   Your first reaction when getting out of the shower is often to brush your hair, getting through all the knots and tangles.

  • 30 Cute Acrylic Nail Designs

    Andi
    26 Sep 2014 | 12:09 pm
    Acrylic nails, or fake nails as they’re also known as, are used as nail extensions placed on top of the fingernails allowing designs or decorations to be painted or applied directly onto them. One of the benefit of this is that you can try different patterns and ideas without committing them to your real fingernails. You can then fix or replace the fake nails without any trouble, maintaining the design you’ve chosen and avoiding any problems with your real nails. Acrylic nails are also perfect if you have damaged or short nails. You can apply them onto your problem nails and…
  • Simple Nail Designs For Short Nails

    Andi
    14 Aug 2014 | 2:16 pm
    When it comes to the world of nail designs there is very little that caters for short nails. Everywhere you look you see long, pointy or stiletto nails, and none of the designs or nail art are suitable for shorter manicures. Which is a little unfair, don’t you think? Shorter nails may not instantly catch the eye in the same way something more in-your-face or ostentatious would but they can be much more suitable for certain situations. Short nails are subtle, classy and elegant. But they’re also functional. You’re not going to want some long talons with jewels all over them…

What that means though is that the toes are often overlooked. Which isn’t really fair, is it? Especially in the summer, when everyone wants to get their feet out, wear sandals, and generally show off their feet and their (hopefully) sexy toes. In order to do that, you’re going to need some amazing and cute toe nail art and designs. So it’s a good thing then that we’ve got…

    One thing that's drastically changed in my life is work. I've been working full-time for about a year and some months now. When I first started with my company, I was in one of their NJ locations. It was pretty casual, jeans every day sort of place. I loved it. Everything I could wear in college, I could wear to work. It made it easy, I pretty much didn't have to buy new clothes. A few months ago, I moved to the NYC office. Let's just say, it was a complete 180. I could no longer wear jeans every day (only on Fridays), I had to dress business casual. Not typical business casual though,…

    Halloween is creeping up on us and I must admit, I haven't been as festive as I used to. Last year, I decorated the outside of my apartment with fake leaves and pumpkins and bought a jumbo bag of candy for trick-or-treaters. Unfortunately, no one stopped by last year and I was stuck finishing a whole bag of candy by myself. Don't worry, I didn't. I brought it to work instead. But that's pretty much why I haven't done much for the apartment this year. I'll probably buy a small bag of candy just in case. Don't want to open the door empty-handed!Even though my apartment isn't decorated, my…

    11 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    I initially wanted a Deva Cut simply because my hair lacked volume and I was tired of bad haircuts. Now that I have grown my hair really long, I lost so much volume. When my hair was shorter volume never was a problem.  I visited the Capella Salon in Studio City, CA home of the "Curl Doctor" Shai Amiel. But of course, it would take over a month to book an appt with him. So I just made an appt with the next available stylist Jodie. I figured all the stylist had to be great if they worked in his salon!   The day of my appt I was asked to come in with my dry natural hair. Jodie…
  • What's the Deva Cut?

    3 Oct 2014 | 9:48 am
    For those unfamiliar, the Deva Curt is a haircut method specialized for those with curly hair and most importantly wear their hair in the natural state. If your wear your hair straight I would not recommend this cut. You come in for your cut and wear your hair in its natural state and they dry cut your curls! This method is different than the usual because your hair wouldn't be pressed and cut. Overall its cut naturally curly and dry to create shape or an even trim. Have you ever had your hair cut while its straight and when you wash and its curly the shape looks crazy? Well…

My hair is getting longer and I have really begun to loose curl definition due to the weight. I have seen other naturalists do different protective hairstyles such as, two strand twists, braid outs, flexi and perm rods to define their curls. I have tried all of these methods and they only work for me if I leave the style in for a few days. And lets be honest here, no one wants to wait that long!
