  • Selena's Colorful Cat-Eye

    12 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Source: Getty I think Selena Gomez always looks wonderful, but she tends to play it safe with her makeup most of the time. A remnant from her days as a Disney star? Perhaps. That's why I was so pleasantly surprised to see this cat-eye look from her at a red carpet event last week. It's got a gorgeous, summery pop of pink shadow, a very unexpected pairing with such a dark liner. Plus, she matched her lipstick to her eyeshadow! Any beauty "rules" about being too matchy-matchy with your makeup are definitely old news! I love how her lipstick brings the look full-circle. I'm…

    "She's like Carrie Underwood, but not pretty." "What's up with this chick's eyes?" "Who names their kid Kirbie?" It was two and a half years ago when I started my job as POPSUGAR Beauty's video host. And as I read the Internet's first reaction to my on-camera presence, I felt like I was being bullied in middle school. I had always wanted to be on the small screen, so I was so thrilled to start this adventure. But after my first video went up, I went from excited and confident to disappointed and insecure. Everything I loved about myself - and the parts I didn't - were suddenly being dissected…

    If you're still making excuses about sunscreen, maybe this video will change your mind. Artist Thomas Leveritt had women and men of all ages view their faces under an ultraviolet lens, and the results were shocking! An ultraviolet camera is like the truth serum of skin care: it shows both your future and your past. Too much time unprotected in the sun or in the tanning bed reveals freckles, age spots, and sun damage. These spots aren't visible to the naked eye but can appear over time. On the other hand, children (or vigilant sunscreen wearers) appear flawless. Dermatologists have told us…

You can have the best makeup but an inferior makeup brush and all sorts of "wrong" can happen. Trust me on this. Most of my makeup brushes are on the more expensive side (I do have a $1 makeup brush that I use everyday as you'll see below) and are of professional quality. They will last for years and offer superior, professional results that I depend on. I have tested and tried probably hundreds of makeup brushes over the years. While I have dozens of…

It is great to see that YSL will be releasing Blush Volupté for fall 2014 as a permanent item after teasing us with the limited-edition Blush Volupté Rose Gold in Loulou from the Rose Glow Collection.

NARS Charlotte (P, $32.00) is glossier, slightly redder. MAC Hearts Aflame (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Studded Kiss (LE, $16.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Fixed on Drama (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned.

  • Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Shadow Quad For Fall 2014

    Gaia Fishler
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:15 pm
    The hype and mayhem surrounding the release of Nude Dip, the new Tom Ford Eye Color Quad for Fall 2014, did little to endear the brand to me. There were teaser photos months ago that made just about everyone feverish with desire for this palette. I know that I can't help it: a super-luxurious collection in easy-to-wear everyday neutral. It's irresistible. When it's also a limited edition the madness is obvious (remember Bobbi Brown's original Chocolate palette from Fall 2006?) . And then it started to look like the palette was going to sell out during pre-sale and will never even make it…

    Gaia Fishler
    28 Aug 2014 | 12:33 pm
    NARS Mandore Satin Lip Pencil was my one lip color pick from Night Caller, the Fall 2014 collection. This red berry color is limited edition (Bansar, the other new Satin Lip Pencil is permanent); since I love the Satin Pencil formula it was an easy decision. This color goes well with the various smoky neutral eye looks of the season, and as a twisted on my favorite classic, a black liner-bold lip combo. Longevity is excellent: the pencil creates a long-lasting stain that barely requires touch ups (it survives a Sunday brunch intact), and since it's a non-drying formula, my lips remain in…

    Let's make one thing clear: I still don't like wearing Datura Noir.I loathed this 2001 Serge Lutens perfume when I first tried it, and didn't enjoy it any better as I kept testing it over the years. In fact, in 2007 I vowed to stay away from it forever.  But I gave all the samples I had to my mother, who smelled divine in this weird white floral. So I bought her a bottle and sniffed in amazement as her sillage took over my old hometown. I still wouldn't wear it. But I had to figure it out. I needed to know what was about Datura Noir that made me want to jump out of my skin (scrubbing…
  • Hakuhodo Itabake Brush- Small

    Gaia Fishler
    26 Aug 2014 | 2:12 pm
    Back in 2012 I abandoned my NARS Ita brushes* for the Hakuhodo Itabake and haven't looked back. The large Itabake brush I bought two years ago is great for foundation, but the smaller ones are more directional and are usually recommended for contouring. But Hakuhod Itabake brushes are more versatile than that. The white goat hair is suitable for use with cream, liquid, and powder products. The Small Itabake is tiny (overall length 78mm, hair length 23mm and width 25mm) and allows for precise application- foundation, highlighters, powder touch-ups, and, yes, contouring (temples and the side of…

I’m a big believer in pampering myself, although it’s usually more along the lines of chocolate and a movie while painting my nails. You know what’s also amazing sometimes? A long hot shower. A little special treatment there doesn’t hurt either. I’ll be the first person to admit that I don’t exfoliate my body regularly.

  • Little Steps for a Polished Look with Tarte

    Crystal
    26 Aug 2014 | 5:30 am
    Through trial and error I’ve come to acknowledge that the key to achieving the polished look is investing in the time to lay down the prep work for a look that lasts. Any look can be polished for a short stint, but the kind of sophisticated look we want looks fresh and pretty even at 5pm. Two little steps you can take that make a world of difference? Priming the eyes and grooming the brows. A good eye primer will help your shadow last longer and prevent creasing. An excellent eye primer will neutralize your lid color as well, so that makes the new Tarte Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick ($21…

    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…

    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…

The good news is that plumping them up is a relatively non-invasive process, and you’re likely to break the bank because of it. So, how do you decide between implants, fillers, or at-home enhancements?

I was a night owl and could get by on such little sleep it could not possibly have been healthy. I would go through bouts of insomnia, but overall, I got great sleep. Not anymore!

    25 Aug 2014 | 4:35 am
    My college roomie-turned-sister-in-law and I have a running joke about our fated skin. First, we suffered from adolescent acne (8th-10th grades, you still haunt me). We combatted that and later found ourselves college freshman with anxiety-induced acne. This was followed by the glorious exercise acne of our early twenties, and we knew inevitably it’d one day become gestational… heaven help me if geriatric is a thing, too. You combat the crazy, you glow for about 18 months, and then — bam! — life hits you with another skin nightmare you’ve got to work around.

With the sole exception, of course, of Taylor Swift, who moved to Tribeca and completely reinvented herself, style-wise and (apparently!) music-wise as well. Two other summer 2013 trends that were…

See that you are over emphasizing parts of them, try to see that they are just girls with flaws and talents. Try to be just as concerned with what is going in inside you, your thoughts, as what is going on around you, other girls. Try to notice when you are thinking negative about yourself and your life...Read more »

    There's nothing better than a intense, moisturizing lip treatment that also happens to be a pretty, flattering, easy to wear color.Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champagne Pearl is a golden-peachy, shimmery shade that is subtle but made my lips look very pretty.  This also makes a great base for light, neutral lip colors to give them a bit more dimension, all the while caring for your lips.  Like  Bite Beauty's original, non-tinted version, this lip mask has a blend of antioxidants, including organic agave nectar, jojoba, and 15 mg of antioxidant resveratrol.If…

  • Drugstore Buy of the Week - Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

    21 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    Well, it's taken a WHILE, but I've finally tried the beauty staple and classic from Neutrogena - Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. Since I test and use hand creams every day, I have pretty high standard for a hand cream - no matter what the price point. And I have to say that the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is a classic for a reason - it's really good - and available in the drugstore, which makes it even better. The texture of this cream is much different from most of the hand creams just entering the market today - it's more of a balm - not a gel or cream, with a…

As mentioned in my previous post about Laneige, they are a Korean skin care brand and you can now find their items at Target. They have quite a few products and I am completely smitten with them lately. Not only are the products really nice, but the packaging looks and feels so high-end, and they are very reasonably priced. These products are all infused with their Optimal Mineral Water, which hydrates, protects and revitalizes skin for 24 hours. This Optimal Mineral Water which was…

    TGIF party people! Today I have the Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Taupe for you, and she’s just about perfect. Awhile back I reviewed a couple of these (Chocolate and Dark Brown) and they didn’t really match me that great. I was hoping to eventually find a great cool-toned taupe shade that wasn’t too dark, wasn’t too light, and was just right. This is it and I found it at Sephora. Taupe ($18) Taupe Taupe is a medium, cool-toned, matte shade. For me it’s just the perfect brow color, especially having lavender hair now. I definitely always look for a cool-toned…

  • NYX The Suede Shadow Palette Swatches and Review

    Kelly
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:40 pm
    NYX The Suede Shadow Palette has recently released as limited edition palette that features 8 jewel-inspired eye shadows. These eye shadows have a shimmery or pearly finish, and they feel super soft and yes, like suede. The palette itself doesn’t feel like the most sturdy thing on earth because the front panel is just flimsy see-through plastic, and the rest is cardboard. So if you were to pack it in a suitcase or something, I would just take care to pack soft things around it and not crush it. I found the pigmentation and texture of all of these really nice. They’re so silky,…

    Violence in the Middle East. Child immigrants crossing into the US from Mexico. Ben Affleck as Batman. If I asked you to name the day’s most controversial issue you might have guessed one of the above. However, you would have been wrong.  Apparently nothing is as contentious as what controls oil production on your skin. In a previous post on oily skin I reported on a 1974 study which indicated that the presence of oil on the skin’s surface sends a signal to the sebaceous glands to turn off. One astute reader, Kiera, was quick to point out that the study I cited is “old” and that…

Even stranger than the phallic 21 gun salute is the wardrobe choice for the models. Why are they dressed as flight attendants? (Or did they call them “stewardesses” back in the ’80s?) Regardless, it makes no sense. The beauty science bit: Did you ever think about how lipsticks get their sleek, glossy finish? The answer is FIRE!

It's a daily moisturizer that provides great protection from the sun, while helping to minimize aging. It's a medium-weight moisturizer, and so far hasn't caused me any breakouts or rosacea (I've used it about 10x). Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery has no artificial fragrances, colors or parabens. Since it's a little bit thicker, I feel like I need to use a little more than my lighter moisturizer to get full coverage…

    Essie For The Twill of ItI'm late to the party on this one, but I finally picked up Essie's For The Twill of It and it's love. Essie doesn't do a whole lot of duochromes, so this is a pretty special color. It has a purple-grey base and shifts to purple, teal, and green with the lighting. The finish is a little frosty for my tastes, but it's not too bad. My only complaint is that I needed at least three coats (wearing three coats here) for evenness and opacity. Essie, do more duochromes! I need more duochromes and I love your brush!

    You've probably noticed that gel polishes (sometimes called no-chip polishes) are HUGE right now. They've gone from a professional-only service to being available in every drugstore.  I've never been interested in them because I just don't like wearing the same polish for more than a day or two, and with gel polishes you either have a four week commitment to a color, or you have to endure a 30+ minute removal process.But one day, as I was gazing down at my disappointingly short-lived pedicure, it dawned on me that I could use these on my toes too.  I mean, I always knew I could,…

The color is pigmented and are supremely flattering. 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…

    If I was sent to a desert island and I could only take one foundation to use for the rest of my life, it would be RMK’s Creamy Foundation.  There are other foundation I am hugely fond of and use in rotation but recently, with my dry, sensitive, blotchy pregnancy skin RMK has become my staple once again (used with their Creamy Primer – it lasts ALL DAY).  Anyway, it’s hard to imagine that this amazing foundation can be improved but sure enough, on September the 24th 2014, RMK will be launching Cream Foundation N, an upgraded version of the original Creamy Foundation!  The new…

    I have always had good quality disposable razors handy regardless of any other hair removal methods I’ve used (such as waxing) because there’s always times when you need to get quickly and painlessly get rid of stray hair!  Also, not everyone’s skin tolerates harsher hair removal methods (mine is very sensitive and goes red easily) and I know that with a clean, sharp razor, I won’t cause any trauma to my skin.  Disposable razors are quite fun and glam these days, and don’t look or feel cheap either. BIC Soleil disposable razors are my current go to razor.  BIC Soleil Lady has 3…

    When I first heard about Jo Malone’s newest fragrance, Wood Sage & Sea Salt I immediately thought…yes! I’ve always been a fan of salt. The smell of salt. The freshness of it, there’s something masculine about the combination, Wood Sage & Sea Salt yet I can imagine it working well on both genders – not everyone likes overly girly fragrances.   But how do you capture sea salt in a fragrance and not have it smell like some kind of hair product?  It’s definitely a hard one to do, but of course Jo Malone do it perfectly.  The composition of Wood Sage & Sea Salt is of…

    As someone completely lazy when it comes to nails, the idea of stick on nail polish and art appeals to me. It’s easy, right? Anyone can stick stuff on stuff.  Well, sort of.  Kiss Gel Dress is a peel of nail product which is supposed to give you an instant gel manicure look.  There is a range of colours and patterns (decals) so you can create your own look.  You can set this under a UV lamp or with a top coat they make – with a lamp it will last a week, with a top coat it will last 2.   Here is the kit – I have no idea where my UV lamp is so I have the kit and the top coat:…

  • Can I Use My Facial Cleanser to Remove Eye Makeup?

    Renée Rouleau
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    I’m all for multitasking and getting more than one use out of a skin care product but when it comes to using your face cleanser to remove eye makeup and mascara, you might want to be careful with this one. Certain ingredients are appropriate for the face, but may cause irritation to the eyes which is a very sensitive area.  Avoid using a facial cleanser in the eye area if it contains: -Exfoliating beads. Particles like jojoba beads and apricot kernels work well to lift off and polish away surface dry skin cells but you certainly don’t want any of these to get into the eye. Ouch!
  • Cleansing Wipes: Are They Good to Use On Your Skin?

    Renée Rouleau
    18 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    In the past few years, cleansing wipes have become popular with people as a way to quickly and easily wipe makeup off their skin without having to deal with water or washcloths. You simply wipe and go.  While they are convenient to use, are they good to use on your face? No. I believe they are not the best choice for healthy skin. Why? Cleansing wipes don’t effectively clean the skin. Instead they just smear dirt, bacteria, oil and makeup across it. Essentially it is like applying cleanser to your face with soap and then not washing it off. The cleansing agents are designed to break…

    We all have women in our life that we look up to and aspire to be like. For me, here are a few that I truly admire.  Actress, Lisa Rinna. I have known Lisa for many years now, ever since I met her in the green room in Dallas at channel 8 when we were both appearing on TV. (I was sharing skin care tips and Lisa was promoting the play “Chicago”, in which she was performing.) Since then, I see her regularly in Los Angeles and give her facial treatments on my quarterly visits there. One of the many things I admire about Lisa is her ability to constantly reinvent herself. In life, we…

If you're lucky, chance arranges these curls into something out of a swimsuit catalog. Or you might be like me. More often than not, the beach leaves me looking more like a castaway than an ocean goddess. Rather than relying on hairstyle fate, I prefer to take matters into my own hands with a simple salt-water solution made in the comfort of my kitchen.

    If there are two things I love, they’re nail polish and New York City. So when I saw that Deborah Lippmann was coming out with a limited-edition fall collection inspired by all things New York, I just knew it had to be mine. The New York Marquee range comes in six stunning chrome shades (all out now!) and I’m super-impressed with each and every one. Keep reading for a more detailed look at each polish, plus my thoughts on formula and application.

Each one of these daughters married a king, and so it was that Marguerite, Eléonore, Sancie and Béatrix became the four Queens of Forcalquier. Their favorite roses fragrances inspired the Rose collection, with subtle and complementary scents, for every woman.” Press Sample   What woman doesn’t love roses?

        By Camilla Saulsbury First up: simplified spanikopita tarts. Spanikopita is a traditional Greek pastry made with phyllo pastry and a filling of spinach, eggs, feta, and a handful of aromatics. I’ve made mine easier by using puff pastry (no layering!) and have lightened the filling a bit with a few egg whites in place of whole eggs. These freeze very well at two points in the process: (1) freeze the assembled, unbaked tarts or (2) cool the baked tarts and freeze. For both freezing options, thaw at room temperature. The baked, thawed tarts can be rewarmed in a 250F oven for…

I instantly fell in love with the benefits for my body and my skin, but was rather turned off by their high price point. Thus leading me to experiment with my own concoction at home.I enjoy this beverage daily (typically after my morning workout) and…
  • MIKA'S MANE TIPS

    16 Jul 2014 | 4:45 pm
    Last month I had the pleasure of meeting up with my favorite stylist in LA, Mika Fowler. Seriously ladies, I kid you not, this woman will give you the best haircut of your life! Everytime I book an appointment, I'm always thrilled with the end result. During our most recent meet-up, she chopped 3+ inches from my mane, leaving me with a fabulous mid-length 'do.I've always trusted Mika's expert opinion, so with an upcoming trip to the east coast on my calender, I decided to pick her brain about proper summer haircare — here's what she had to say:Invest in haircuts regularly, you shouldn’t…

    Image via Ah, summer — as much as I hate to admit it, my routine is always a bit more difficult to master during this time of year. In the winter months, I can lather, exfoliate and hydrate with the best of them, but once the warmer temperatures arrive, the 'natural look' is simply more time consuming for me. And it's no wonder — with humid days, hotter nights and an on-the-go schedule, it can be difficult to keep a look intact. After a full on meltdown this past weekend (literally, my makeup melted away completely) i've decided to get back to these essential tricks:Opt for cream-based…

  • {Guest Post from Loxa Beauty} Save My Damaged Hair! Part III: Heat and Over-Styling

    Tiffany Schutt
    15 Aug 2014 | 1:00 am
    Hair health is a matter of biology, just like every other part of our human make-up. Staying hydrated is a must for our survival, and the same rings true for healthy hair. Much of how we style our hair removes necessary moisture for shiny, healthy hair. Heat styling with blow dyers, curling irons and flat irons change the structure of the hair and its biology. Heat changes the hydrogen bonds in our hair, which holds each strand together. Daily blow-drying and heat styling lead to breakage, damage and split ends. It’s important to give hair a break from constant styling. Let hair air dry on…

    Ever envy that one friend who’s never color-treated or damaged her hair, has natural highlights and shampoo commercial-like shine? And then you try to copy her look, only to end up with dry, over-processed hair? Of course you do. We all do! It’s time to end the color-treatment envy and damage cycle once and for all. Color treatments actually change the structure of hair, often resulting in damage and split ends. This breakdown of the hair’s biological make-up creates dry, dull strands that are more susceptible to breakage. Bleaching hair is even harsher than permanent color…

    Dry, dull and damaged hair can be a real drag. No one wants damaged locks and split ends, but it happens. And honestly, we often give our locks a beating when we try to tame it and mold it into place. Here are a few ways that we end up with dry, stringy strands. 5 Causes of Damaged Hair Tight updos – Ponytails and braids offer a great way to sweep hair off the face and to style second day hair. However, when pulled tightly and worn frequently, these styles create weak hair and breakage. Over-washing – The goal of shampooing is to cleanse the scalp from build up in hair follicles and…

  • MAC Pro Longwear Brow Set: Because Brows Are Everything

    Amy
    28 Aug 2014 | 4:43 pm
    This summer MAC released a few permanent items, including the MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set ($17 0.17 oz.). Because brows are so important, I was curious to try it. I picked up MAC’s Brow Set in Quiet Brunette, described as a “muted mid-tone gray.” This product is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Macy’s and other MAC sources. I’ve been wearing this for about a week, and find that it delivers well. The brush is short, and therefore easy to control. The product is highly controllable, so a light brush through will give a light application. You just…

From all experience, this appears to be another “blink and you’ll miss them” releases. In other words, limited quantities especially for the Tom Ford Nude Dip quad.  These are the times when the relationships that we’ve formed with sales associates become invaluable. Sometimes the online releases are gone in a remarkably brief time, so call your Neiman Marcus, Saks, Nordstrom, and Bergdorf counters now if you are interested. It breaks my heart to tell…

    I picked up a few items from MAC’s A Novel Romance Collection, a large Fall collection that had a few neutrals with a twist that seemed pretty and fun. I’m going to post these pictures here quickly, rather than doing a full review which could take more time that I have before sellout. This collection is currently for sale at Nordstrom, Macy’s and Bloomingdales. This time around, the eyeshadow quads struck me as both interesting and high-quality. For the $40 price point, I found these original, pretty neutrals-with-a-twist with good pigmentation and a lovely, soft formula.

Are your feet baby soft and attractive? Or, are they scaly and rough? If they are rough and scaly, do you know how to get rid of the roughness? Foot skin care easy and you can do it almost overnight.

It’s too easy to find lipsticks that apply dry and you feel like you have to drag them across your lips, leave your lips feeling like you’re stranded on a deserted island, or even worse.. fade away within the hour you apply it. I was really excited to try out Butter London’s new line of lipsticks, because the claim was the exact opposite of everything above- these claimed to be matte, super lush and moisturizing, and last. Usually matte and moisturizing don’t go hand in hand when it comes to lip products, so this was…

I’ve tried other kits that were like this, but where you had to boil the impressions mold and try to push it on to your teeth while it was really hot to kind of, sort of get a mold of your teeth. This kit is different because you actually create a real impression of your teeth, mail it back to the company, and they send you a custom made mold for your top and bottom teeth! This is…

    Photos by: JMichael.LAHappy Monday! The past weekend was the first weekend of Coachella, and I spent a great deal avoiding Instagram the whole weekend so the #FOMO (fear of missing out) feeling wouldn't be so bad. I just utilized my weekend by doing my own relaxing which involved plenty of couch time. And think about all that sleep and TV I caught up with (just to make myself feel better)!!! But, two weekends ago, I spent some time in Palm Desert for a mini vacay. We were able to take advantage of the surroundings and the perfect weather to film my Coachella Inspired Lookbook for my…

    Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I have to say that this past weekend was probably the most productive weekend I've had in months. Did all the mundane adult things that I had to do. I mainly worked on my closet and got rid of the things that I haven't worn in years (yes, years) as I've mentioned in my previous post as part of my things to do. I'm pretty happy that I did some major progress with it. I even found things that I almost forgot that I had!CONTINUE READING →

  • Review: Aeveka Naturally Pure Skincare

    Nicole Dantzler
    26 Aug 2014 | 5:07 pm
    I recently tried several products from the Aeveka Naturally Pure Skincare line including the Refreshing Citrus Cleanser, Regenerating Night Crème and Replenishing Co-Q10 Eye Crème. This is an all natural skin care line which means that it’s made with non-toxic and organic ingredients found in nature. It’s also cruelty free and vegan which is a major plus for me! If you’ve read some of my past posts you already know that I prefer natural beauty products because I believe that they are safer for our health. Our skin absorbs everything that we put on it so it just makes…

  • Topical Steroid Withdrawal | Fifth Month Update

    Gaby Fauchon
    29 Aug 2014 | 6:27 am
    (image: Pinterest)Nothing major happened in July, but there is one new thing: in the first week of July, my lips - which had been mostly unaffected by TSW until this month - started being incredibly dry and cracked. I tried to heal them with many different sorts of lipbalms, but nothing helped - in fact, they only seemed to get worse - they even started oozing and being itchy, a bit like what my face was like in the first months, but less intense! This is when I decided that I would not use any more lipbalm and let my lips do their own thing. But as they continued oozing (the worst was in the…

    I am pretty low key when it comes to my hair - most days, I will simply throw it in a ponytail or braid, and if I really feel like making an effort, I will maybe quickly run the flatiron on my bangs. I am also that kind of girl who doesn't really care if her roots are showing, and who relies heavily on dry shampoo - or even baby powder - to postpone the dreaded hair wash day as far as possible. But when there is a special occasion, I like to amp up my hairstyle a bit, be it full blown volume, super sleek strands or beachy waves.Walmart and TRESemme have teamed up to help you get salon…

For about a year, I have been really trying to grow it out - I know, I always say that and I always end up cutting it, but this time, I really want to stick with my resolution! It is almost at the length it was in December 2012, when I decided to chop it off myself, and I really want to grow it even more, so I am doing lots of treatment masks and I use leave-in treatments…

    Year-round sun protection is the wise choice for a lifetime of beautiful skin. It’s a good idea to have in your wardrobe a hat or two to shield your face, because honestly, reapplying sunscreen throughout the day is not the most convenient process; in fact, it’s beyond high maintenance, and if you wear foundation, it’s going to ruin your canvas. I have a deep appreciation for beautiful things, and couture hats are no exception. There will always be an occasion for a fashionable hat, but the most important thing that you want to invest in first is a very practical, collapsable sun hat…

This is no exception when it comes to taking proper care of my pucker, as I learned after trying the S.W. Basics Organic Lip Balm Flight ($15 in the shop), a kit that offers four tempting scents in an adorable metal tin. I just turned 26, and for the past few years, I’ve suffered from perpetually chapped and peeling lips. I figured my lips were just prone to dryness. Little did I know, the unsightly peeling was actually my lips crying out for mercy.
  • Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser and Cream

    29 Aug 2014 | 8:33 am
    by Teresa For one month, I tested the Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser and Cream ($32 and $62). The full Evologie system includes the cleanser and cream, plus a serum. I am 62 years of age with combination skin and occasional breakouts. My t-zone was oilier last summer, but perhaps with age and certainly with the brutal Midwest winter, my skin has dried somewhat — especially on my cheeks. I used these two products every morning and night for two months. After two weeks, I noticed an improvement in my breakout area.  The redness decreased, and I had less eruptions.  However, the…
  • Moana Nourishing Mask

    28 Aug 2014 | 2:12 pm
    by Stacie I tested the Moana Nourishing Mask (NZ$125 or roughly $105 USD), the brand being a natural line out of New Zealand. Initially, I thought this would be a moisturizing mask, but I quickly discovered that this is a moisturizing treatment to be used day and night. The substantive plastic jar holds a thick, creamy, yellow moisturizer with a very strong scent. After many days trying to pinpoint this fragrance, the closest description I can come up with is a very strong herbal, almost mulch-like smell. This smell does slightly dissipate after application; however, it is intensified when…
  • Olie Biologique Huile Moderne 004 Hydrating Oil

    28 Aug 2014 | 12:53 pm
    by Susan I tested a travel-size version of the Olie Biologique Huile Moderne 004 Hydrating Oil ($78/full-size 30ml), which is enough for approximately two to three weeks, depending on how much you use. You are instructed to use it twice daily on your face, neck and cuticles. In that case, count on the product not lasting as long. The oil has a slight but delightful fragrance and is not greasy at all. It is a composite of organic argan oil, rosehip oil, neroli oil, bergamot oil and frankincense. Olie biologique’s only claim is that this product hydrates your skin. It does not claim to…

  • Find Your Best Foundation Applicator

    31 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Natural or synthetic brushes? Disposable or reusable makeup sponges? With so many foundation applicators on the market, it can feel overwhelming to pick the right one. So we’ve compiled our best advice on the topic, with the help of Kindra Mann, a makeup artist with more than ten years of experience who counts Gabrielle Union and Rosario Dawson among her clients. According to Mann, some formulations work best with specific applicators (for example, to get the most even coverage with powder foundation, a natural-bristle brush is your best bet)—but often, it just comes down to personal…
  • Winged Eyeliner Through the Years + 4 Different Ways to Wear It

    30 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra (1963) Winged eyeliner, also referred to as a “cat eye,” could be the most classic beauty trend in history. It was even part of Cleopatra’s beauty routine, since it was believed by the Egyptians as a way to ward off the “evil eye.” Eventually drawn-on “wings” made their way to Hollywood in the ’50s and onto the eyes of Brigitte Bardot, Anna Karina, Sophia Loren, and—full circle—Elizabeth Taylor in the film Cleopatra. Photo by Kaylin Idora Retro style icon Dita Von Teese’s signature winged eye helped boost the trend’s popularity in more…

  • Master Mani Tutorial: Electric Circles

    28 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    We can’t think of anything better to wear during the bittersweet transition from summer to fall than this graphic mani, designed by master nail artist Chelsea King. It’s a totally cool geometric motif in a color palette that toes the line between both seasons. Grab your supplies and follow along. Electric Circles with Chelsea King Level: Advanced | Time: 90 minutes The inspiration: When Chelsea first spotted this Marimekko dress, she was drawn to the shapes and contrasting colors (see the original hand-painted design she did on her own nails here).

  • The Face Exfoliator That Really, Really Works

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    We’ve all heard it before: regular exfoliation equals more radiant skin. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve tried a handful of exfoliators over the years and was never satisfied until I found Koh Gen Do Soft Gommage Gel a few years back. It’s unlike anything else out there. Seriously. The product somehow manages to lift away dead skin cells on your face (literally!) and smooths your complexion out like nobody’s business. So what, exactly, makes this product different from the rest? For starters, it isn’t formulated with alpha-hydroxy acids, or BHAs, which are super common in…

  • Best Tips For Lips!

    by Jackie Silver, Aging Backwards Ladies, where would we be without our makeup? Famous makeup guru Max Factor once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear lipstick feels undressed in public. Unless she works on a farm.” We’re all looking for the best tips for lips. TIME magazine reported as far back as 1958 that, “The beauty industry fears no recession, for a woman will give up food before her pursuit of beauty – and often because of it.” Apparently, things haven’t changed much since 1958. Fifty years later, in 2008, beauty retail website feelingunique.com asked 1,000 women in the…

  • Prove It! Review of the Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System

    5 Aug 2014 | 2:18 pm
     With the increasing popularity of high-tech cleansing tools in the beauty world, I probably shouldn't admit this, but I'd never actually tried one until two months ago. For one, most of these tools are quite an investment at around $150 a piece. With dry and at times sensitive skin, the idea of scrubbing away layers of my face is scary. Yes, exfoliation is an important step of a skin care routine, but if you've dealt with products that have made your skin freak out before, you may also understand the struggle against exfoliator-induced panic attacks. All of…
  • There's Finally a Cure for Phobia of Shiny Eye Shadows

    28 Jul 2014 | 9:55 am
    Generally I prefer my face to glow, not sparkle. Sparkles are just not my thing. Adding even a single sequin to something is the quickest way to ruin it. Since I am nearly certain this aversion is a response to a deep-seated childhood trauma like wanting a pink sparkly unicorn shirt and being denied it, the fact that I have finally found an eyeshadow that can be described as "sparkly" and yet I still want to wear it feels like a tremendous victory.The amount I hate sparkles is equivalent to the amount of ambivalence I feel for mousse eye shadow. The texture can be odd, I suck at applying…
  • Cleansing Rituals: The 7 Step Guide to Summer Skincare

    10 Jun 2014 | 9:36 pm
    When the sun goes down, so does my skincare routineMost routines make my shoulders tense, my teeth clench, and bring tears of boredom to my eyes. Give me an unplanned evening that starts with dinner and turns into a 3am dance party any day. Or really, any day where I can sleep in past 10am. However, one of the few areas in life that I absolutely, positively need to follow a carefully regimented plan is skincare. Specifically my evening facial routine. Even though products rotate in and out as the seasons change or my skin decides to go all weird on me, there is always a tight plan in…
  • The Space In-Between: In Life, In Hairstyles

    Most of life happens in what is best described as the "in-between zone". Sure, those big moments when we move to a new city, change jobs, or start (perhaps end) a relationship seem to be the more crucial points. In the film of our life, those pivotal moments would make it into the hyped-up movie trailer. Not featured would be the routines that make up the average day, and the waiting, always waiting, for the next big thing to happen. But it is those in-between moments that seem to encompass the majority of our story.Washington D.C, stumbled across this charming tree in…
  • The Beauty of Earth Day: Free for All Birchbox

Be it National Candied Orange Peel Day or Lumpy Rug Day, I can appreciate the idea that people are passionate about a wide range of things and every dog should have his day, as the saying goes. That being said, Earth Day is not one of those random holidays. Earth Day is a day where we can all join together in our feelings of guilt for not doing more to be environmentally aware. Or on the flip side, if you are quite environmentally…

It was my Holy Grail and then poof , it was gone.No longer offered by Lierac, I resorted to hoarding tubes I purchased on Amazon. At some point, one must ask…

  • Ardency Inn Pigments Copper And Vintage Gold Review

    Norah Salazar
    31 Aug 2014 | 9:19 am
    I love pigments! For both personal and work, I rather use pigments over regular shadow, any day. Ardency Inn has launched Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments, a collection of twelve colors in total, these offer concentrated levels of color reaching up to 78%, depending on the shade. In a pigment, you lay out one coat and there is a difference from an average eyeshadow. These shadows have density and photograph beautiful and have less of the chalky feel of regular powder shadow. My opinion? Ardency Inn Pigments deliver velvety, soft, and supremely rich colors. On myself, I used Copper and…
  • The Gnarly Whale Green Tea Eucalyptus Toner Review

    Norah Salazar
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:21 pm
    As far as using toner goes, this is an important skincare step, and one that unfortunately gets neglected by most people. Toner is not just for oily skin, it is for all skin types. Toning after cleansing completes the process of getting rid of debris and impurities, this is why it is so crucial to your daily routine. If you want smoother skin, adding a good toner is a must. I’ve been testing the Gnarly Whale’s Green Tea Eucalyptus toner for a couple of weeks. Here’s the deal with my skin, I am dry/ combination. My toner needs to be gentle, non-drying and without alcohol.

This gorgeous lady was a bride very recently and although it doesn’t seem like a lot, there are quite a few products that were used to achieve this timeless, elegant, makeup look. She had a daytime ceremony and wanted a look that would translate well in daylight and go into night time. My MUA/ Hairstylist friend Denise Mojica did the hair, and it was a beautiful, camera-ready, makeup/ hair transformation.

Ciate London Lash Lights are a new set of lash tip enhancers, think mascara but a much thinner brush.

    31 Aug 2014 | 7:57 am
    Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer ($5.99, Ulta) is a twist up liner with a built-in smudger that's great for use on the waterline. I have quite a few waterproof liners, but this one stuck out to me because they had a nude shade. I'd been hearing good things about Pixi Beauty's Eye Bright Liner ($12, Target) which is also nude, but I hadn't gotten around to purchasing it yet. Then I saw this one for $5.99 and thought it would be a great dupe at half the price!

Well, that is just an extension that has made me glad I have three kids to dress up in the really simple but stylish and well-made clothes. The fabrics are soft, wear well and the kids love the comfy feeling of the denim leggings like no other. I like that each piece can be mixed and matched up with another tunic, dress or pair of…

    You can tell the end of the summer is near because everyone is tired of everything, including each other. Please, tell me that it is not just in my house. The girls are not exactly ready to give up the carefree days of summer but they certainly aren’t thrilled with much of anything else either. In other words it is all, “Boooorring…I’m so tired.” Don’t let those smiling faces fool you. So let’s look at something pretty to distract ourselves, shall we? Last week’s Whatcha Wearing Wednesday was the best one I’ve had so far. THANK YOU SO…

    The minute I saw this ad with Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton I knew that I had to create something similar to it. Didn’t I just buy a new white crew neck sweater, after all? My hair is short and blonde.  I have brown eyes and I’m always down for a swipe of bright red lipstick.  This look?  It’s my fall.  It’s neutral, timeless and takes me through my days. My favorite pair of distressed jeans are calling my name.  I think some cute booties or heels would work too. The bag is a whole other story. I love it but I can’t afford it.  My money is going to…

    I look at the clock and it’s already passed noon. I have to be ready at 4:45PM for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner at Los Toros with his mom and older sister. I did not want to leave the house without cooking something for my family. I opened the fridge. There were tomatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, and fresh Italian parsley. Spaghetti sounded like a perfect idea. There’s more than enough time to go to the store, pick up a few items, come home then cook. My boyfriend and I rushed on over to Sprouts. He decided to tag along since it was double ad Wednesdays. I ended up…

This beer is one of our special limited beers, and we only open 1 special beer for special important occasions. What can I say about this beer other than I love it so much ?

    Today, my boyfriend and I were supposed to go to The Long Beach BBQ Festival. All you can eat ribs, chicken, pulled pork, salad, sides, desserts, and drinks for $80. It includes beer and wine as well! Then we started thinking. What if the food weren’t up to our standards and they served beers that are whatever? Then we just wasted $160! Because whoever knows me, knows that I do not like drinking shitty beers (i.e. bud light, etc). So instead, we decided to just make our own food and buy drinks that we actually enjoy. We would avoid disappointment because we know our food is just that…

My boyfriend wasn’t that hungry. Bummer. I have to leave the house around 2, so that left me with no time to go food shopping. Ugh!

I opened the fridge and what do take out?… Egg, avocado, jalapeno, tomato, onion, Boar’s Head Cheddar Cheese and…

    There’s something that a black eyeliner conveys that brown or even brightly colored or metallic eyeliners can’t duplicate. Black says bold, daring, classic, sexy. While there are times that I opt for brown or grey, a good black eyeliner is always my first choice. Some of my favorites include CoverGirl liquiline blast (pencil), LORAC 3-in-1 Waterproof Eye Pencil (retractable), AVON Kohl Eye Liner (pencil) and Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Eyeliner (liquid). For the most part, I wear them interchangeably. However, I do tend to wear more waterproof makeup when it’s hot out.

    Sometimes, the words don’t come. I will and I will and I will myself to sit down and write the words — any words — but even the sitting down is heavy and hard. That ‘sometimes’ can last for months; it has for almost eight months now. I’ve felt almost afraid of this space, like it’s a fighting ring where I need to show my strongest, most indefatigable side; where I need to reflect some sort of beauty or magic, if at least to myself. But every now and then, there are (still) those days where it feels enough for me to just breathe through the day. Those days,…

Because there was a time when we would follow only what our hearts and our bodies really wanted to do from deep inside each cell: To speak the truest truth we knew in our littlest minds. To laugh whenever the hell we wanted, even if it wasn’t appropriate. To move and bop and let our bodies do…

There’s hardly any space in here—the room is filled with books and magazines, my desk, a hundred paper bags filled with things I’ve bought but haven’t put away (I like the surprise of discovering something brand new all over again a few months after I buy it). The door is only about four steps away from my bed but I still manage to trip myself as I walk. It’s so makeshift I almost feel like a student again. I don’t even have a proper bedside…

    Soo Jin
    11 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    I just wanted to share my face of the day from yesterday’s family portrait session. It’s so incredibly rare to put on a full face of makeup these days being a stay-at-home mama but it was pretty fun getting all done up.  I’m really proud of myself for taking care of hair and makeup on my own. I was SO tempted to just going to the salon/makeup counter so that I wouldn’t have to stress about things not turning out the way that I wanted.  In the end, I was able to get ready during Evelyn’s naps/while Hubs took care of her so it all worked out.Before – no…

    It’s long overdue but here it is- Evelyn’s birth story!So here’s where I left you.  My last post pre-baby was my 39th week update (besides my pre-scheduled LeSportsac Baby Bag post).  At that point I think my mentality was “this baby is never coming out”.  I remember being so anxious and excited for her to arrive but having thought that she could be coming any minute for the past few weeks was really tiring me out. Even though other parents told me again and again to enjoy this time before baby arrives I couldn’t help but just want her here already!

Evelyn was born early morning on September 9th, 2013.  Since then life has been a beautiful chaos.  In the beginning I was struggling to adjust to motherhood so I had no time, energy or will to continue blogging.  But like people told me over and over again while I was in the thick of things, it got easier!  Most days I’m still pretty pooped by the time Evelyn is in bed but I have to say I really do…

This is an aggressive form of cancer that results from asbestos exposure. Surprisingly, asbestos is not banned in the US, although its widely known as a carcinogen. It is found in homes built prior to 1970 in places like insulation, siding, roof shingles, textured paint, and much more. Check out…

    August has been one heck of a month and not in a great way, as well as all the car trouble, my USB failed me and I lost a lot of photos, now normally I have more than one copy, but I had borrowed my Dad’s SD to take the pictures and instead of transferring to my computer and USB I stuck it straight on USB and wiped the SD for Dad. When I went to get them back off my USB, the USB had kicked the bucket, which left me in panic mode. Thankfully my Dad has his head on straight and managed to get the local computer shop to bring back the photos to his SD, so quite a bit of money down and a…

    If you’ve done something wrong recently that requires an apology, at least you’ve acknowledged that it’s up to you to apologise. Now, I can’t tell you what will work for definite; this depends on what you did, the person you’re apologising to, and many other factors. You may have done something unforgivable in the other person’s eyes, which I’m afraid I can’t help you with. However, if this isn’t too serious, one of the following ideas will probably work: 1.

  • Age defying makeup for mature skin

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    21 Aug 2014 | 8:16 pm
    I’m often asked about age defying makeup, and when you should start using it. The truth is biological age actually means very little when I’m applying makeup on someone. I meet women who are 50+ yet look closer to 40 and 20 year olds who could pass for 30. I don’t focus on age, I focus on the skin. I do believe there are certain times in life when internal and external factors can have a dramatic impact on your skin and face. By external, think of relocations to a different time zone or season, and by internal I mean hormonal shifts like puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. These factors…

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:51 pm
    If you get to mid-morning or the start of your lunch break and notice that your makeup has mysteriously disappeared, there’s a good chance your skin has drunk it up! In these cooler months, external influences like artificial heating and cool winds will make your skin dry and thirsty, and your disappearing makeup is often the first indicator of it. Before rushing to change your makeup routine, I always recommend looking at your skincare and diet first. Drinking sufficient amounts of water is the key to hydrating your skin, and of course reducing its thirst-factor! Secondly have a look at…
  • Makeup Gift Idea: colour switch

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    13 Jul 2014 | 5:45 pm
    “Colour switch” by Vera Mona is a great little makeup gift or addition to your own makeup bag. It was shown to me by a client (thanks Sandra!) recently and I couldn’t believe it hadn’t been created earlier. It’s perfect for someone who enjoys using different makeup colours but only owns a few makeup brushes. For example using the same brush for blush and bronzer, or blending a smoky eye with 2-3 colours using just one brush. With “colour switch” you simply swipe the brush over the stippled sponge and it quickly removes all colours from it and you’re ready for the next product.

And natural beauty isn’t just about looking natural – at it’s most basic, it’s also about allowing nature’s beauty allies to help us look our best.   With this principle in mind I joined a beauty tea blending workshop on a sweltering night in Brooklyn.

So, here is the question on everyone’s mind: WHY DO WE KEEP OUR FRENEMIES IN OUR LIVES? Maybe a better question should be, what can we do to change a frenemies status from frenemy to friend? Your frenemy may be a co-worker, sister, friend from college, friend of a mutual friend,…

Of course, by now, I'm pretty sure I failed in the styling as well as hair and make-up. Well, especially the hair. I am just no good in hair styling.On the other hand, I'm more than happy I was able to explore this aspect of photography. Usually, my black and white photos are shot in color like the rest and are then later desaturated during post-processing. This time, I decided to shoot the whole set in black and…

     I've been watching a lot of Mad Men lately. I'm still at Season 3, but I'm definitely drawn to the 60s vibe already. They say this is the show that helped the 60s fashion make a come back.I cannot verify this information of course but every time Betty Draper is on screen, I can definitely see what they mean. She may be a cold, stoic women, but her style is definitely not flat.Unfortunately, I live in a small city, and I don't have access to all the nice vintage dresses made these days. So what better place to look than online? There are plenty of online boutiques, and one such…

I'm pretty sure it's going to rain this afternoon too.There's just nothing that makes me miss summer more than a cold weather and heavy rain. And I think I had the longest ever string of get-aways for this year's summer. One of the firsts was during March, when my sister and I decided to explore parts of Cebu that we haven't explored yet. It was actually a three-day trip. Our first day was spent within the city and I may, or may not blog about as it's all city-ish stuff. The second day…

    Ryan Bloch
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:50 am
      Breasts, breasts, breasts. Whether small or large, pert or pendulous, they all have their admirers. But there is one type of breast that most approaches perfection. The model mammary apparently has a nipple that points slightly skywards and an upper half just a bit smaller than the bottom half. If one is talking about a mature woman, then there is no perfect breast size. All breast sizes when the time comes, will serve the function to which they were given. If you a girl asking the question then be proud of what you have, if your breasts are small and compact then so be it, they can be…
  • The Renaissance of the Male Calf?

    Ryan Bloch
    5 Aug 2014 | 9:55 am
        Did you know that the male calf used to be a signature erogenous zone? This is why European men in the latter part of the 18th Century wore stockings. Much like the modern equivalent of the male bicep, an emphasis on a strong shapely calf was meant to attract female onlookers. As with a strong bicep, a strong calf conveyed virility. If we look at paintings and portraits from the latter half of the 1700s we can see that the fashionable item were white stockings, and men can be seen posing in such a way as to accentuate the finer features of their calf. The modern equivalent of…
  • What Are Perfect Lips?

    The balanced lip size: The ratio of the height of the upper lip to that of the lower one is ideally 1.4:1.6. 1. Outside Corners of Lips Over time, the fat at the corner of the lips disappears and the depressor angularis oris, the muscle that runs from the corner of the lips to the jawbone, tightens, resulting in the downward look. This process also results in the formation of Marionette lines. Dermal fillers can replace the volume while Botox®, in the depressor angularis oris will relax that muscle.  2. Vermilion Border This is the lip border that defines the shape of your lips. The…

  • Cosmetic Surgery for Ears? Hear Us Out!

    Ryan Bloch
    26 Jun 2014 | 10:22 am
    From complaining that they are to large, asymmetrical, or protrude to far from their heads, many individuals are unhappy with their ears. Many take various measures to hide them, from growing out the hair to cover the ears, to slapping on hats. Fortunately, otoplasty, or ear plastic surgery, is readily available to cosmetically alter the ears. Because the ears are very prominent, many cosmetic ear surgery patients experience a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem once their ears have been given a more desirable appearance. The most popular otoplasty procedure is ear pinning and…

For most of my life I just thought Epsom Salt was something my grandma kept in her bathroom in a weird container that looked like a milk carton.

    As millions of baby boomers cross the 50-year threshold, the perception of the dreaded “half-century” mark is changing. Many 50-year-olds today don’t look a day over 40, and many of them are just as active, if not more active, than their younger counterparts. Anti-aging fitness at this point in life is essential—those who don’t get fit at 50 are putting themselves at risk. Even if you look youthful on the outside, neglecting the need to get fit at 50 can lead to complications.

  • Rice cooker pancakes!

    27 Jun 2014 | 6:20 am
    Hey guys!This post is a little different, it was a bit of an experiment. I saw a post for a 'rice cooker pancake' on facebook, and was pretty skeptical about it. The directions were to mix up some pancake batter, pour it into the rice cooker and turn it on. That's it..Anyway, we tried it, and surprisingly it worked! I have a fairly old rice cooker, it doesn't have all the fancy functions that others have, so we just turned it on and hoped for the best.While fairly vague, the instructions seem to work out. Mix the batter (we used pre-mix but DIY would be fine), pour it into the…

To my surprise (and lack of research..), this is actually a clay mask. So yes, it's supposed to look a bit questionable in the pot haha.The website does say it's good for all skin types, and the products are botanically based. What…

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…

If you've answered, "Because I get free stuff," "Because I'll get more recognition" or something else along those lines, don't bother continuing the article. It sounds harsh, but you're really not in it for…
