  • Scarlett Johansson Has New Short-Short Hair! Come See the First Pics

    Girls in the Beauty Department
    29 Jul 2014 | 2:56 pm
    First our blond, makeup-free Kesha sighting and now this: Scarlett Johansson has been spotted walking around NYC with fiance Romain Dauriac—and a brand-new short haircut! Because Scarlett is quite pregnant at this point, I doubt this hair change is for a movie role. Maybe the heat plus hormones just got her itching to lose her long hair. (In May, she inched her way shorter with a chin-length bob, but this here is a serious short haircut.) I'm also not sure what's up with the yellow shade of blond; maybe it's just a light/photography issue, or maybe she's transitioning between colors.

    YSL Fetiche Couture Eye Palette YSL Fetiche Couture Eye Palette ($60.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette with five shades for fall. The palette has a leather panel on the front. I bought mine from Nordstrom, but it’s also available on YSL. I can appreciate the interesting combination of colors, and the finishes are more complex in person than they appear in photos. YSL claims 12-hour crease-resistant wear, but there’s usually noticeable fading after eight to nine hours and creasing by ten hours. I wish the wear-time claim wasn’t quite so extreme,…

  • Keri Plays With Color

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Source: Getty We all learned about the color wheel in elementary school art class, right? If you want to emphasize a certain color, just look at what color is across from it on a color wheel! What color is it that emphasizes green? Looking at actress Keri Russell here, at a red carpet event last week, she totally used the color wheel to her advantage! As a fellow green-eyed gal, I'm loving how Keri's deep purple eye look is making her eyes the centerpiece of her whole look! It's edgy, yet feminine, and I just love it! Wanna try Keri's look?

    15 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Hey gorgeous! Are you absolutely sick of shimmery and shiny faces all over the place? SO AM I! Sometimes you just have to change it up and get into matte-mode, especially in this blazing summer heat. Mattes are great to control oil and they're especially useful for people with textured or acneic skin. Hide that bumpy skin elfette, instead of exaggerating it with shimmer and shine. If you've never experimented with our amazing HD POWDERS, here's your chance!  STEP 1 Esther is normally oily, so I began by dusting her face with the e.l.f.

    Jessica Cruel
    29 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Lipstick is probably the most provocative of cosmetics. It's bright, it draws attention to your mouth, and it's loaded with connotations of sensuality and femininity. It shouldn't be surprising, then, that lipstick's been around for about as long as people have been adorning themselves and that some form of it has existed in almost every culture. But rouge's journey from prehistory to the present hasn't been as smooth as a cream formula. In fact, lipstick's been dangerous, vilified, and controversial. So to see how this makeup-bag staple has changed over the centuries, keep reading. Source:…

    It's no secret that being pregnant in the middle of the Summer in NYC is a pretty miserable experience thanks to that steam heat, and a very pregnant Scarlett Johansson (she's due in August) has no exemption from it. She made a public statement about cooling off by taking her recent bob haircut and snipping it into a bowl style reminiscent of the popular boy-band mushroom cuts of the '90s. She was spotted out and about with her fiancé, Romain Duriac, wearing casually cool overalls and the new 'do. From the front, her straight, gold-hued strands were tossed over to one side with a deep part.

This is one of the colors from the Summer 2014 Bubbly Collection, which contains 6 super glittery colors.Harper is a pretty fabulous Pepto Bismol/cotton candy pink packed with tons of iridescent and holographic yellow gold glitter. One coat yields almost perfect coverage, but two make it completely opaque. This is definitely one of those colors that make me want to keep staring at my nails over and over (and over).

    First our blond, makeup-free Kesha sighting and now this: Scarlett Johansson has been spotted walking around NYC with fiance Romain Dauriac—and a brand-new short haircut! Because Scarlett is quite pregnant at this point, I doubt this hair change is for a movie role. Maybe the heat plus hormones just got her itching to lose her long hair. (In May, she inched her way shorter with a chin-length bob, but this here is a serious short haircut.) I'm also not sure what's up with the yellow shade of blond; maybe it's just a light/photography issue, or maybe she's transitioning between colors.

It's a bronzing body oil of some kind. The idea behind this oils is that they moisture and give the skin a sheen that makes it appear smoother, while the shimmery bronze bits they leave behind hides uneven skin tone and generally makes the whole area look like its glowing.

    OCC Vain Lip Tar OCC Vain Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, dark indigo.” It’s a rich, medium-dark blue with a soft shine. It’s cool-toned, but it seems to be a subtle, cool undertone. The color will stain the lips for a good while, just as a heads up. I couldn’t think of any dupes of this shade from the blue lipsticks I’ve reviewed in the past. The consistency of the Lip Tar was thinner, more watery, compared to others I’ve tried, which made application trickier, even though I used OCC’s Lip Brush. It also has a…

The palette has a leather panel on the front. I bought mine from Nordstrom, but it’s also available on YSL. I can appreciate the interesting combination of colors, and the finishes are more complex in person than they appear in photos. YSL claims 12-hour crease-resistant wear, but there’s usually noticeable fading after eight to nine hours and creasing by ten hours. I wish the wear-time claim wasn’t quite so extreme,…

It had some visible brush strokes, unfortunately, though it was very pigmented. The consistency was slightly thick. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear (but no chipping) with OCC’s formula. Anna Sui…

I once made a friend gasp when demonstrating that I could run in 3.5" pumps (well, perhaps some of the surprise was due to seeing me run, no matter the footwear. I doubt it has happened since). The sandals above, Manolo Blahnik's Platee ($765 at Saks and Bergdorf), are exactly the kind of shoe that conforms to the foot just enough, supports the ankle (my right one has been wonky for nearly 30 years), and allows one to walk without compromising style.

Lauder's description of the brush confirms that you can use it with all of their other foundations, and I will add that obviously you can use any liquid foundation or tinted moisturizers.I got the #2 foundation brush because of its shape. It looks like an oversized version of the insanely-priced Claudio Riaz Instant Smoke eye brush, and the "sculpting" part of the name hints towards the brushes ability to create shape if that's what…

  • Hard Candy Lite Bright Concealer Works for the Fairest of Them All

    Crystal
    26 Jun 2014 | 10:28 am
    There’s so much conflicting information about concealers and which shade to buy. Some say to go one shade lighter and others swear that you need to match your skintone exactly. To set the record straight, for covering blemishes, your concealer should match your skintone. For highlighting or illuminating dark circles, half to one shade lighter is your best bet. The Hard Candy Lite Bright Concealer ($6 US) falls under the latter category. The ultra-convenient click style pen releases a creamy product that adds light to wherever it is applied without unwanted sparkles or shimmer. It does dry…

Yellow gets the Nail Polish Problem Child of the World Award. They’re either super sheer or opaque and streaky. And while one-coat reds, blues, etc exist, a one-coat yellow is our chupacabra. That being said, I’m often asked what the Best Yellow Nail Polish is, when I’ve just finished railing on one in a review. So I’ve got 14 streak-free,…

    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…

With that in mind, the ads feature brand favorite Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton, a boxing gym and approximately one zillion of Chanel’s pre-fall and fall handbags. In the ads, Delevingne and Walton perform…

  • New Dior Perfume Makes Wearers Smell Like Expensive Leather Bags

    Amanda Mull
    29 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    I spent a lot of years on our PurseForum before I officially joined the company, and during that time I saw hundreds, if not thousands, of bag lovers reference the divine smell of a new bag’s leather. Fashion is an experience that usually only involves one or two senses, but luxury leather has an instantly recognizable stink, and to love bags is to love that smell. With Dior Cuir Cannage Privée Perfume, you can now apply it directly to your person. The Dior Privée scent collection is full of less-commercial perfumes that are meant for discerning fragrance fanatics instead of average…

I would play outside with the neighborhood kids, read a book, or listen to the radio and practice drill team dance moves. Sundays were a day with no agenda. You did whatever the day gave you. It was a day off school and that's all that mattered.Read more »

Let's talk about the latest drama of Bethenny Frankel, the ex Housewives of New York City star who posted a picture on Instagram modeling her 4-year-old daughter's pajamas.I don't see anything wrong with being a little silly, and hey, if you can fit into children's clothing, so what?! She looked cute in that Hello Kitty top and I would wear that in a heartbeat. Once in a blue moon I'll find a girl's size 16 dress or shirt that I can wear. That's a fashion crime because???

     Laura Mercier certainly knows how to make just the perfect foundation for the right time. I'm always amazed at the formulas that Laura Mercier creates - they may all be foundations - but they could not be more different in their texture, effects and finish. The newest foundation, Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, is here this summer and is a unique blend of a lightweight (sweat and humidity proof) foundation and a "blurring cream.  What does that mean?  It means it gave me not only amazing, all day coverage no matter how hot and…

The Rose 4 Reines range (now called Roses et Reines) was created 10 years ago and is enhanced by a unique rose extract from Haute-Provence, obtained by enfleurage. What the heck is that, you ask? Enfleurage consists of extracting the freshness of the natural essence of flowers as soon as they are harvested. This process is particularly suitable for the rose which is extremely delicate.

Three shades have a porcelain finish (aka matte) and one is a very unique glitter shade. $4.99-$5.49 Petal Obsession Petal Obsession is a pale pink matte. So as you can probably see, this shade/formula highlights every single flaw on my nails. I did need three coats to get it as even as I could.

This collection, which launches August 5th on Cirque’s site (also see their stockists page), features shades reminiscent of hot summer days and long summer nights. Each shade has a vivid jelly formula, and features incredible color-shifting shimmer. Because these are jellies, and I like my jellies to be as opaque as humanly possible, I used three coats for each shade to build up the opacity and cover my nail lines. You could use two coats though if you don’t need them as opaque as I do. Dear…

    Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation is a new item that I recently came across whilst at Sephora. These new lip colors come in six shades and a clear shade which are made to be worn alone or under a lip gloss. They have a twist-up feature and a precision slanted tip. To find the perfect nude for you, you are supposed to choose a shade which matches your lip shade, not your skin. They have a VERY matte finish, which I shall talk about more soon. Buff and Nude $19 Buff, Nude Buff is a nude beige and the lightest shade in the bunch. I bought this one after swatching it on my hand and falling in love.

The Halo Effect is a psychological phenomena in which people come to erroneous conclusions about product features based on non-related factors. For example, if a consumer likes the way a product smells, they might rate something like foam quality higher than if they didn’t like how it smells. It doesn’t matter that the fragrance has no measurable impact on foam quality. To demonstrate the Halo Effect for…

    Thinkbaby sunscreen is a beauty best seller on Amazon this week. Let’s look at the label to learn why.  For a zinc oxide only sunscreen it’s hard to find fault with this formula. There is, however, one important point to note about the rest of the ingredients – they’re not in the traditional order that you might expect! If you read ingredient lists you’re probably accustomed to the standard practice of listing ingredients in descending order of concentration. (At until you get below the 1% level, then they can be listed in any order.)  But this product takes…

No, the ad doesn’t actually say that but the imagery of the model regressing back to babyhood certainly implies it.

    I love this product. Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair Cream. Pigmentation and uneven skin tone is such a problem today.  Dark Spots, Photodamage are known as sun damaged skin is something that most people will not escape. It occurs with exposure to sunlight starting at an early age with 25% of our exposure occurring before the end of our teens. Even if you limit your exposure as an adult and use SPF there is a real possibility you will develop dark spots.   Even if you get rid of your pigmentation, it can come back immediately just spending a short time in the sun without protections.

Dry, oily, sensitive, no matter what your skin type, it’s important to research and talk to a skincare specialist about the right skincare regime for you.Personally, I have dry, sensitive skin, and I’m also prone to rosacea. Yesterday I posted about Mirvaso (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%, a new topical gel specifically developed and indicated to treat the persistent facial redness of rosacea. Mirvaso is all about treating the redness, so you don’t have to conceal with makeup.  The Break Up with Your Makeup…
  • Stop Concealing, and Start Treating!

    20 Jul 2014 | 6:20 pm
    For a long time in my teens, I had issues with extremely red, pink cheeks. My dermatologist at the time finally diagnosed me with rosacea, and I was able to treat it properly. But up until I was diagnosed, I tried multiple brands of cover up and powders to try and disguise it, but really I was just making it worse!  I still get flare-ups once in a while, and have to be careful of the products I put on my face.Here’s a little background on rosacea:-        Rosacea affects an estimated 16 million Americans-        24%…

    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!

BN.inc Special Selection Value Pack #20 LashesThe lashes I'm wearing are by BN.inc, a brand I've never tried before. They're a long, spiky style (my favorite) interspersed with short cris-cross fibers. They're much softer and more flexible than most of the similar spiky lashes I've tried so they curl easily and don't come up as easily at the edges. I love them…

    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,…

Notes in this fragrance include: champagne citrus, blackberry, lotus flower, rose, oud, cedar, vanilla orchid, patchouli and amber. It’s a pretty scent and one word to describe it after wearing it…

A combination of mineral water and clay masques are available for nearly every skin type with each offering it's own unique benefits. My favorite part – the products are incredibly easy to use and of course, they're far cheaper than heading to a spa for a comparable treatment Before you apply any of the masques, Clayspray recommends starting with the H2Ospray Hydrate Natura Spring Water to…

Using inspiration from Judy's Jimmy Choo tomato red clutch, makeup artist Tamah uses a red lip to add to the pop of red. To balance the pop of color with the rest of the look, Tamah gave Judy a 'summer smokey eye' which gives the eyes definition while veering away from using the typical dark colors normally associated with the traditional smokey eye. With beautiful braided hair by hairstylist, Gregory Russell completing the look, Judy has given the summer look not…

It’s a soap-free, paraben-free cleanser especially designed for sensitive skin. While it starts as a gel, when you add water it activates into a foam and lathers really nicely. What is it about lathering? I feel cheated when my…

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Contributor Lolo Michelle writes: As someone who loves to have fun and who also loves to test theories, I’ve always fantasized about going blonde (I mean, what brunette hasn’t wondered, do they really have more fun)?  At the same time, the fear that I would wind up tearing my hair out (I’d say excuse the pun, but it was fully intended) trying to find the right colorist and hair care routine has always prevented me from stepping over to the flaxen side. Lo and behold, I no longer have that excuse, thanks to The Blonde Movement, an ingenious website dedicated to blondes…

  • Lovely Baby Skincare: Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow Review

    Row
    24 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Ever since Baby H was born, I have been committed to only using good quality, natural skincare on him.  As a result I have tested many many different brands.  H has normal to dry skin, and has suffered eczema, from serious (an infection on his scalp) or lingering small patches which have all but disappeared.  However, in certain conditions (for example in the current British heatwave) he is prone to rashes which can be itchy and red.  I haven’t yet found ‘the one’ when it comes to baby skincare for him – the main staples of his routine is a hair and skin wash, followed by…
  • Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes E108 and Glazed Lips L306 Review!

    Row
    17 Jul 2014 | 6:19 am
    I have used Ellis Faas a good few years ago and I admit I was’t feeling the brand. But, I like to give things another go wherever I can, especially when a few years have passed and there’s a chance of a formula change!  I have here an Ellis Fass Glazed Lips in L306 and a Creamy Eyes eyeshadow in E108.   Ellis Fass packaging is the unique long sleek pen style with the pointy tip. It’s a very particular type of packaging that makes it unique, it’s not really practical (none of my make up bags are THAT long) but it is cool.   To use the colour just twist the base so that the pigment…
  • Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection, Elsa and Anna make up looks – Part 3

    Row
    16 Jul 2014 | 6:16 am
    My final post about the Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection.  The collection in its entirety consists of two eyeshadow palettes, lip glosses, some base products (face powder and cushion foundation), eyeliner and 3 nail polishes.  I have used the make up now, one look using the Anna colours and one using the Elsa colours.  I also used various eyeliners from the liner set.  Here is the Elsa look – it’s a purple eyeshadow palette with a bright pink lip tint.  I am a fan of purple eyeshadow and bright lips but I admit I wouldn’t wear these together as they are both quite bright. I…
  • Peripera Frozen Make Up Collection; Magic Glam Lip Tint Review & Swatches – Part 2

    Row
    16 Jul 2014 | 5:12 am
    Part of the Peripera Frozen collection are two lip products, the Magic Glam Lip Tints in Let It Go (Elsa’s colour) and I’m Happy Kristoff (Anna’s colour).  Both colours appeal to me, one is a bright pink and the other is an orange coral.  The packaging is super cute: Magic Glam Tint is an interesting and very likeable texture – it reminds me of YSL’s Glossy Lip Stain – it applies like a gloss, but has a very shiny finish, but also a lot of pigment. One coat is sufficient, but two leaves a really nice rich colour. As it’s a tint, it also stains and lasts surprisingly…
  • Proskin Clinics Treatment for Pigmentation & Sun Damage!

    Row
    15 Jul 2014 | 6:30 am
    Pigmentation, brown spots and an uneven skin tone really wasn’t anything I thought about much until recent years when I noticed light freckling appearing on the top of my cheeks.  I ignored it; it wasn’t that noticeable, but in recent months, with getting older and pregnancy, the pigmentation areas are gradually getting bigger and more bothersome. I admit, I have not always been the biggest sunscreen user – my make up always contained it, but in terms of using a separate SPF, it just wasn’t something I though I needed in the cloudy North of England, but the sun can be a big…

  • Clayspray

    Clayspray harnesses the power of clay to give your skin new life. They actually refer to clay as “the secret of life” and the line of Clayspray for Face products are designed around that principle. A combination of mineral water and clay masques are available for nearly every skin type with each offering it's own unique benefits. My favorite part – the products are incredibly easy to use and of course, they're far cheaper than heading to a spa for a comparable treatment Before you apply any of the masques, Clayspray recommends starting with the H2Ospray Hydrate Natura Spring Water to…
  • Get the Look: Judy Greer at the “Married” Premiere

    Hayden Sorensen

    It's the middle of the summer so what better way to keep your summer look than to keep your makeup and hair light and fresh! Using inspiration from Judy's Jimmy Choo tomato red clutch, makeup artist Tamah uses a red lip to add to the pop of red. To balance the pop of color with the rest of the look, Tamah gave Judy a 'summer smokey eye' which gives the eyes definition while veering away from using the typical dark colors normally associated with the traditional smokey eye. With beautiful braided hair by hairstylist, Gregory Russell completing the look, Judy has given the summer look not…

Read on to see how you can get Becky's new look: Start with the eyebrows by brushing them into place with clear brow gel and begin heavily rimming the eyes with COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. Once the line is dark and intense, apply a matte dark brown shadow to the lid, using a firm eye shadow brush. Once the dark brown shadow is applied, use Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel with a blending…

  • Master Class Recap: 7 Summer Skin Survival Tips

    Renée Rouleau
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    It’s summer and that means extra attention needs to be paid to your skin to prevent damage, brown spots, redness and increased oil. I recently held two amazing master skin care classes in our Plano, Texas skin care spa and since we have so many fans across the globe who of course couldn’t attend, here’s a recap of what I shared plus some Q&A.  1. Wear sunscreen faithfully. SPF numbers—a higher number doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more effective. Did you know that an SPF 50 protects only 2% more than an SPF 30? Use a minimum of SPF 30 like found in Daily Protection…
  • 4 Celebrity Skincare Secrets Debunked (and Tips on What REALLY Works!)

    In magazines, blogs, or on TV, you’ve likely come across an interview with a celebrity who has been asked “What are your secrets for keeping your skin looking beautiful?” They usually share something that seems so simple, and rather effortless, yet, does it really work? Is it really how they look so young?  As someone who works with celebrities giving professional facial treatments as well as teaching them how to care for their skin at home, I know that the secret to beautiful skin is not so easy (or as accurate) as they can make it sound.

  • How Do Hormones Affect the Skin in Your 60s?

    Renée Rouleau
    11 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    Intrinsic aging is determined by heredity, your genetic programming that controls the hormones responsible for aging. The skin will certainly behave differently under the influences of these hormones, but how do they affect it from ages 60-70?  Estrogen is very involved in the normal function of the skin. It directly affects the role of key cells in the skin, like the fibroblasts (produce collagen and elastin), keratinocytes (closely involved in skin protection for retaining moisture) and melanocytes (involved in evenness of skin color). Estrogen also grabs onto water and holds it in the…

    28 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    It's been quite a hectic journey this Singapore Blog Awards, because I've been busy at work (yes, I do have a full-time job outside of blogging, because unlike some celebrity bloggers I don't get paid to blog), and also, as awesome as the Blog Awards have been, it also means extra work for me, in the form of extra blogposts. Now, if you read my blog, you'll know I don't always blog that regularly - sure every week there will be at least one post or two, but I'm not really a "blog every day" type of blogger. Because so much work and research goes into my posts, either for things like…

    27 Jul 2014 | 7:46 am
    I've mentioned before in my previous post that this year's Singapore Blog Awards has been quite the eye opener for me - and it doesn't seem to stop! After my epic journey with a hair dryer and a hair straightener/curler, I now get the chance to get up close and personal with a heated eyelash curler and a face steamer! And these touch your face and skin so much closer than hair tools do! So you may be wondering, what exactly are these strange products? The eyelash curler is the Panasonic Eyelash Curler EH-SE60 VP (for those who want to know the model number) and Panasonic Face Steamer EH-SA31…

After over 25 years of not doing anything at all to my hair - I have what is called "virgin hair" in hairstylist/hair-fanatic parlance, I finally attempted to curl and style my own hair, all by my lonesome self!

    Parabens - are they safe or not? You've seen them in ingredients lists - methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben are the most commonly used ones in cosmetics and skincare, but there are a bunch of others, such as isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, benzylparaben and so on. You've also probably heard that they are unsafe, and can cause cancer (in particular breast cancer) because they are endocrine disruptors. But are they really unsafe? What does the science say, beyond the hype? I've actually touched on the topic before, but it was in the comments section of…

  • IPSY GLAM Bag Review July 2014!

    25 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Purchased by me   June’s Glam Bag was filled to the brim with awesome sauce, but this month’s doesn’t give that same old thrill. July’s theme is “Sensationally Sunkissed” and emphasizes products that you can use while in the sun and by the water. If you’re not familiar, Ipsy is a monthly subscription bag. For only $10 a month you get a great mix of full and sample size beauty products from great brands and a cute makeup bag too! I particularly like the Ipsy Glam Bag because for the most part, they keep your coloring and preferences in mind. If…

  • Racinne's Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque doesn't quite feel like a mask [Review 3/4]

    Jinra Ilustrisimo
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:12 pm
    10In following the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series skincare regimen, the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque was to be used twice a week. Despite sheet masks being all the rage in Korea, this particular masque to my delight, is of the tubed variety. Perhaps it's not just me, but sometimes I just don't feel like my skin absorbs product from sheet masks very well. I digress!
  • NARS Night Series Eyeliner isn't just for the night [Review]

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:42 pm
    10You might wonder to yourself as you read the title of this review, "Did I miss the NARS Day Series Eyeliner?" The answer is no, no you didn't. There's no such thing as the NARS Day Series Eyeliner, just the Night Series Eyeliner. The Night Series Eyeliner is a new type of eyeliner introduced in the NARS Night Caller Fall 2014 Color Collection. I recently test drove the Night Series Eyeliner in both Night Clubbing and Night Porter and discovered that you can actually wear it (and rock it) anytime of day.

    10Following the application of Racinne's Aqua Blanc Tonic in a Korean skincare regimen, is Racinne's Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series Aqua Blanc Concentrate. The primary focus of the Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series is the expression of even toned, radiant skin. With that the Aqua Blanc Concentrate is a serum-type product said to reduce dark spots while also restoring dull, damaged skin.

    10Ever since adopting the Korean skincare method to address my anti-aging and adult acne needs, my skin has never looked better! I recently discovered that Racinne, a skincare brand from Korea, is easily accessible via their US-based e-commerce site and several retail locations throughout California. Given that it's so difficult to get a hold of Korean skincare products without paying a bit in international shipping, I decided to give Racinne and their Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series a try. This particular line is suitable for all skin-types and addresses uneven skintone, enlarged pores and oil…

You can purchase it at most grocery or drugstores under their tea aisle, or directly from their website here-> Traditional Medicinals. The tea comes in individual tea bags within an appropriately color coordinated milky-white and pink box.

  • Fashion Trend: Flats

    29 Jun 2014 | 10:01 pm
    I remember a time when flats were considered casual. Women wouldn’t dare attend a cocktail party wearing shoes that didn’t contain at least a tiny heel. Flats were the footwear women secretly changed out of before walking into a major event, and then changed back into when the night was over. Now, flats are in, and can look just as stylish as a fabulous pair of heels. Here are some flats that will keep you looking glam while wearing that cocktail dress. Try pointy flats that add a bit of sophistication to the casual flat, or solid colorblocking to spice it up a bit. Pour la Victoire Add…

      You’re out on the beach, on the streets, in a park or so forth. You spot a stray piece of trash, a stray bottle or runaway plastic bag. Pick it up and toss it in the trash. If it’s covered with grodiness, look for a leaf or something to cover your hand first. (I live near a populated beach area; I know of what I speak.) This move is cool on so many levels it’s hard to count. It communicates that you give a rat’s behind about keeping our fair Earth nice. It demonstrates dignity and a community consciousness. Independent-minded Man of Action-ness and a certain…

      Air Optix Colors Event. This very nice man’s eyes matched his shirt…   I got to test drive a pair of Air Optix Colors recently, and might I say I am very impressed. I am a wearer of color contacts from way back, when I had a pair of Fresh Look color contacts that I saved up for and stored lovingly in my medicine cabinet like they were the Crown Jewels. I wore my precious color contacts faithfully to clubs and parties; they could magically turn the color of my quite-brown eyes to a curious cross between a caramel and a tiger’s. Side Note: The power to transform…
  • Why Aloe Rocks: Reason #414

    Constance
    8 Jul 2014 | 3:54 pm
        Your buddy, the aloe plant. Get one. Tomorrow. Yesterday. Aloe Vera plants are only about $10 and need zero maintenance. They are a lifesaver for repairing sun-busted skin, as seen above. Plus, they make excellent face masks. Tip: If you have sunburn, apply and re-apply fresh aloe as often as you can. Your skin will literally suck up the aloe goodness. Results seen after approximately 36 hours… and the burn was fairly bad.

      I’ve been wanting to write about ties for a while. They are a fairly vital part of a man’s style arsenal. A tie can pull together a man’s look (or not), plus transmit his personal style sensibility in an instant. The location of the tie, on the heart of the body and close to the face, makes it an accoutrement that every man should put some thought into. Even the man who purports to hate ties and dressing up and all that stuff should know he’ll be wearing a tie on some fairly key occasions in life…perhaps at his prom, wedding, while doing grown-up work stuff…

I am a Coca-Cola girl through and through.  My personal favorites are Coca-Cola and Coke Zero.  If I’m told by a restaurant they only have Pepsi products, I either opt for Mountain Dew or water.  To me, regular Coke has a crisper, less heavy flavor than Pepsi.  As for Coke Zero, it seems to be more carbonated than typical diet sodas and isn’t as overwhelmingly The…

    I've talked about the connection between inflammation and anti-aging before, but today I wanted to give you a look into one of the ways I help to reduce the inflammation in my body. I came up with this drink about a year ago, after attending a wellness festival and being introduced to a company who had begun bottling turmeric-based beverages. 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…

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…

    14 Jul 2014 | 1:02 pm
    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…
  • THE LAUNCH OF BEAUTY CHAT

    Christina Marrale
    9 Jun 2014 | 10:38 am
    I discovered my passion for beauty very early in life. As a child, like most young girls, I would watch my mother do her makeup in complete awe. The red lipstick, the powder, eyeshadow... it was all so fascinating to me. But that's not what sparked my passion. As I observed her regimen, I wondered about each of the product's function, texture and purpose. Why she choose certain shades with her coloring and why on earth would she religiously put "mud" (also known as the Borghese mask) on each week. These thoughts consumed me, making it clear that I wanted to be involved in this industry in…

    I have no idea how I stumbled upon Pinkish Trends but I am very happy I did because I found these shoes.  I can’t even handle this combination, it’s blowing my mind.  I can honestly say I’ve never been a huge fan of animal prints (I know I KNOW) but I can’t resist this coral pairing.  Oh and did I mention these are $36 SHIPPED?  You’re welcome. Check out their website – plenty of other cuteness you probably need in your life.   xo.   *photos from Pinkish Trends website

    Over the past few months, Yves Saint Laurent has been quietly reinventing several beauty items, including these Yves Saint Laurent Couture 5-Color Eyeshadow Palettes ($60 each). After falling in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Fetiche palette reviewed here, I’ve also found time to play with these two new additions.

If you don’t know about the Guerlain Super Aqua-Serum moisturizer line, the first few words seem to come from the anime genre.

This is a sheer, emollient foundation with buildable coverage that is packaged in an elegant, unique, fun little wand. The Smart Wand is now available in four shades at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty. I ordered this in the shade Light 210, which runs slightly cool and light on my NC15/20 Chanel Ivoire skintone. It was certainly in a good range for me, and I don’t mind going a little lighter on my foundations. Unlike his other foundations, Marc Jacobs’ Smart Wand is…

Yves Saint Laurent’s Couture Leather Fetiche (Leather Fetish) 5-color eyeshadow palette ($60) is one of those items for Fall 2014.

    Last week I did something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but could never muster up enough courage.  I donated 10 inches of my hair to Locks of Love. I’m almost embarrassed to talk about the emotional attachment I’ve developed to my hair. It serves as my personal security blanket.  Whether I am feeling insecure about my bad skin or out-of-shape body, I can always rely on the presence of my long flowy locks of blonde hair. For some, hair is just an inanimate object and changing it’s color or cutting it off is no big deal. But for many others, our hair is a distinct…

Very original, in my humble opinion. Smoky collection consists of 6 shades. You can see them all on Dance Legend online store. I got to swatch three…

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…

    It’s no secret that I have a serious girl crush on Mila Kunis. She’s one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and I can’t help but admire all the different ways she wears her hair, because her styles always look chic and glamorous. Take these beachy-tousled waves, for example. To the untrained eye, it seems like Mila just rolled out of bed looking like this, and it’s a great carefree look for summer. In reality, I’m sure it took at least a little work to look this effortless. Even if we haven’t been blessed with a flowing, perfectly-disheveled mane…

For a beauty junkie on the go, it’s hard to edit down your product (can’t we just take it all?). Thankfully, we always carry a pliable and stylish makeup bag that will only fit so much, which forces us to just take the basics when we’re on the move. But when it comes to carrying around our beauty goods, we don’t want to carry it in just any bag.  An incredible beauty collection deserves…

I had dyed my hair at around the same time so wanted a treatment which would really lock in the colour and give it an extra moisture boost that I find hair needs after using dye. This mask is one which hits the brief entirely and here’s why! To be honest I haven’t used a hair mask other than the Essential Rich Premier Ultra Honey Hair Mask so that has been the only product I reach for. Problem is that with it being only available online or in Asia,…

At 54, I certainly need the heavy hitters, but I can eke out the more expensive versions by having a maintenance product on hand to alternate with. After several months with a heavy hitter, I can sometimes afford a little break — I will invariably end up going back to the heavy hitter, but at least my credit card gets some respite. Here are some of my refresh and repair combos (and be assured that even my lightweight essentials punch above their weight). Eye serums Heavy hitter: E'shee Clinical Esthetic Alpha and Omega Gene…

    I have been a Skin Nutrition fan for a number of years and think highly of the Skin Nutrition Cell CPR Facial Serum and the Skin Nutrition Night Cream. Unfortunately, my skin did not feel similarly nourished by the reformulated Skin Nutrition Cell CPR Eye Reconditioning Serum ($100). The first issue that I had when testing reformulated Cell CPR Eye Reconditioning Serum is that the cream was extremely runny when squirted out from the bottle. So much so that I found it impossible to apply to my eyelids or under-eye without some of the cream dribbling into my eyes themselves. The result was mild…

    As someone who’s dead serious and totally uncompromising when it comes to her daily eyeshadow regimen, the summertime heat and humidity can be…challenging. By the end of the day, I found most shadows had separated, settled into my (numerous) creases, and smudged from sweat. Over the past few years, when July rolls around, I’ve thought about skipping shadow altogether—but that’s totally unacceptable. I always feel unfinished without a slip of color on my lids. It’s almost as bad as if I, god forbid, wandered out of the house without earrings. Or pants. So I became a connoisseur of…

Staring at her like a person who has seen the Promised Land for the first time, I interrupted her mid-conversation to demand, “What have you been doing to your skin????” Michelle grinned. “Facial oils!” Of course. You can’t go online without some beauty writer telling you how some new facial oil is the holy grail of this or that. But I’m one of those who has…
  • How to Get Smooth, Hairless Legs Without Waxing. Spoiler: It’s Painful.

    27 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    Full disclosure: a few years ago, I stopped shaving my legs. I’ve been happy ever since (and I have more free time in the mornings). But every now and again, I want to slide between the clean white sheets on my bed feeling smooth, fresh, and silky. So off I go to the waxer and $65 later, I’ve got violently red legs that are supposed to stay fuzz-free for up to a month. But I find that my leg hair starts to grow back within a week, and then I’m stuck grumpily shaving weird little patches in the shower and wishing I could get my money back. Besides waxing, I’ve tried shaving (too much…

Plus, you can even use honey for beauty! In fact, honey has been used for healing purposes since ancient times, most commonly as a wound disinfectant. Plus, the fact that honey never goes bad made it extremely useful to keep on hand before modern refrigeration was invented. A tomb uncovered in the Egyptian Valley of the Kings proved honey was used when pharaohs reigned. According to TourEgypt.com, “Some…

  • 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

    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…

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.

  • Favorite Summer Lipsticks

    Norah Salazar
    28 Jul 2014 | 11:45 am
    Summer is all about color. As much as I love a fully made up face, a pop of color on the lips can be ultra chic. I have been playing with some fun brands and colors, as usual I am going drugstore, indie and a bit high end to showcase some range and how closely similar they can be. The choice ultimately lies on finish from matte, semi matte, glossy, sheer AND how bold you want to go. On my face, I have CC cream and my brows are filled in, everything else is bare faced (for me anyway). Tat2U Lip Extreme (Mucho Caliente) – Love the name, love the products and pigment of this indie brand. I…

Six years ago, I was living in Singapore and had an incredible opportunity being in a country with an emerging fashion scene. As I began practicing and learning, I loved seeing the impact of makeovers and being a part of a bride during her most important day. To my fortune, I was in a circle of great artists and mentors, multi cultural clients, stylists, models and photographers who let me create or…

These lip glosses and lipsticks are non-comedogenic, hypo-allergenic, allergy tested, fragrance free and paraben free. After trying them myself, I can tell you these are not just your ordinary lip glosses, they are very solid on pigment and formulated to stay on for a while.

But I saw that this one said it was    "weightless" on the bottle and it made me curious to try it since it not only has Argan Oil (which it seems like every product…

I didn't have much experience in this area, so I started to do some research online. Turns out that it's an up-and-coming trend in the U.S.! Since then, I've been seeing a lot of articles in magazines talking about Korean skincare products and the multi-step routine that's popular in Asia. I've learned that they have some really unique qualities that set them apart from Western skin care. So I've actually been using a Korean…

It's non damaging since it's not actually dye. It is also used on dry hair which is so much easier than wet since you can see where you're putting it while your hair is already styled how you would normally wear it.The box tells you that it may last longer on damaged or color treated hair which is absolutely true! I once used an Aveda color conditioner in brown on my damaged blonde hair to see what I would look like…

    The flyers came slipping out of the Sunday morning paper yesterday, full of brightly colored photos of notebooks, pencils and markers. All shiny and new, ready to be purchased at the lowest marked price. “It’s back to school season already!” they shouted. Beckoned really, like a sirens call. I’m not really ready for it. Yes, I’m tired of the bickering between the girls, but I like the freedom summer gives us to travel more, be outdoors and take naps in the sun. I need more naps. The fact that the school supply list was sent out and posted online gave me the…

    If you read one blog post and buy the suggested products in your life this should be that post! There is nothing more important than suncream, I can't stress that enough (I feel like I've said those exact words so many times on this blog). With this incredible summer we're having in England I don't feel that my foundation or moisturiser with SPF30 included is enough, and that a targeted face sunscreen is a necessity for everyone every day. We all know that suncream is so important to protect from many things..skin damage, cancer, pigmentation, and not forgetting anti-aging as a massive reason…

We all know exfoliating is a good thing and we do it to soften skin, reduce ingrown hairs, bumps, even out skin tone, help tan last longer, absorb creams better etc etc but loofahs, scrubs and spa mitts never do that good a job for me so I was pretty skeptical about the Dermasuri mitt claims as the best exfoliation ever, but it blew away all my…

    The hair transplant cost is important to men who consider doing hair replacement therapy. At times, the loss of hair cannot be bearable any longer thus necessitating the need for hair transplant. This procedure is considered a permanent solution to men who are often victims of permanent hair loss on their scalps. If you are one of those men, then you need to consider the costs associated with this procedure.   The generic thing with this cost is that it is often expensive and may depend largely from country to country and from the doctor to doctor.

    Originally published as Q&A: Whiteheads Vs. Blackheads, What’s the Difference? from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. You ask, we answer! Q. What are blackheads? A. Also known as open comedones, blackheads are widened hair follicles plugged with keratin squamae (dead skin buildup), oil, and sebum. Despite their name, this type of acne can actually range anywhere from yellowish to a dark, grey-brown in color and appear as small dark spots on the skin. Blackheads are most common during puberty when oil production is at an all-time high, and continue to be prevalent in those with…

    Hourglass Radiant Magenta Ambient Lighting BlushHourglass Radiant Magenta Ambient Lighting Blush ($35) is a lovely medium warm pink with a satiny finish. It looks like a fairly cool-toned pink in the compact, and even swatched with the finger, but on the cheeks the pink really warms up to my skin. The color has a Spring/Summer pink vibe as it pulls pinky-peach on the cheeks. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting line of blushes are still fairly new, with the initial launch this past February. These blushes combine Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder - which is a luminous finishing powder,…

It has a little bit of a frost and shimmer to it, but it's pretty subtle, and actually looks matte on my lips in low lighting. I'm not really a fan of frost, but it's subtle enough where it's not a deal breaker for me. It's very pretty and I think a color that is well suited for the Spring.The coverage is mostly opaque with one coat and applies smoothly to the lips with a satiny feel. I originally thought that the formula would be drying, but it actually feels pretty…

This color in my eyes is the definition of Spring/Summer, and is a fabulous shade to rock all season long. Much like Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick (in my previous post), it's a great color for those with warm, golden undertones and will brighten the face instantly. The coverage is light but buildable, and pairs really well on top of any pink, peach or coral lipstick and it also looks great all on it's own.Chanel Glossimers is one of my favorite formulas of lipgloss…

It looks like a bright watermelon light pink in the tube, but once the color is applied, it's a sheer warm soft pink. It's a great universal shade especially on warm skin tones, as the golden bits gives the pink some added brightness, so it's not a pink that will wash you out. In fact, it's one of those perfect lipsticks that you can mindlessly toss in your bag for every day and it's so subtle that you can wear it on your no-makeup days…

I must have picked up and put down fifteen novels and memoirs that I just could not get into, I always blame this on my mood and not the author. The best feeling is getting so into a book that you don’t want to do anything else but sit and read. Those books are few and far between! Here’s what I’ve been reading over the past ten days. I finished them all! People I Want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots, and Other Suburban Scourges by Jen Mann I am really into memoirs especially when…

      Based in – where else?- Southern California, this brand is all about harnessing that feel good California flavor. From the simple but modern design of the boxes and sleek bottles to the pure ingredients, this brand instantly intrigued me. These products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, harsh synthetic chemicals.   Let’s take a closer look!   California Naturel uses natural ingredients such as aloe vera leaf juice, spirulina, sea fennel, shea butter and more.  Many of the ingredients are organic which makes me happy!

  • Wellness Wednesday: Exercise for Lazy People Part 2

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:35 am
      Back in August, I did a post called Exercise for Lazy People. You can read it here.  Now I bring to you, Part Two of Exercise for when you want to play on Pinterest or watch some BRAVO TV  rather than get a little exercise in  your day. I don’t go to a gym(basically because I find that I spend an hour getting ready to go to the gym, a  half hour to drive there and less time actually working out) and prefer to do my workouts at home which is why I have all kinds of neat little things at home like a yoga mat, Pilates Magic Circle, foam roller, dumb bells, kettle bells, a…

    NEWS FLASH: A large yellow orb, admitting heat, has been seen glowing above the UK for much of the past week, rumour has it, it is the lesser seen sunshine. No one knows how long it will stay for, as anyone moment it could disappear, not to be seen any for a long time – but while it is out – let’s all celebrate and enjoy the fact we don’t need to wear jumpers and heavy boots to try and stay warm, by tracking down some fancy looking flip flops.

  • Surviving and Combating the Most Common Summer Hair Issues

    Aly Walansky
    29 Jul 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Imaxtree There’s a lot to love about summer, but humidity and the resulting frizzy, dried out, sun ravaged hair is not among those reasons. Add the damage of wind, water, and chlorine and our hair is in crisis mode all summer long — meaning we need a big  prescription of TLC. To help you fight the most common hair issues of summer, check out the expert tips below! Summer heat, wind and humidity inevitably causes frizz. Reduce frizz by drying your hair with a cotton t-shirt instead of a towel. A towel’s texture can cause a ton of friction which disrupts the cuticle and creates…
  • The Cool Girl’s Guide to Rocking a Lip Stain

    Shannon Farrell
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:30 pm
    The blistering summer heat calls for one thing—barely-there makeup you can’t even feel. But for those of us who feel naked without lipstick, it poses quite the problem. How do you wear bold (or even light) color without the product melting off immediately after stepping outside? It’s simple: swap your thick lipstick for a light, yet highly-pigmented, lip stain. Our new go-to is the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain. Infused with vitamin E and aloe, the formula drenches lips in glossy wet color and creamy moisture. When tested, 88 percent of women felt their lips were instantly…

  • Is your winter skin drinking your makeup?

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    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.

So the start of the new financial year is a “second chance” to remind yourself to stop and reassess things. In terms of makeup resolutions, I advise my clients to check and refresh their makeup routine at least once a year, to avoid any makeup ruts! Here are some suggestions to get you started: To check: Foundation colour: when was the last time you had it matched? Does your skin colour change markedly with the seasons? Foundation texture: is your…

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney

    Makeup artist Laura Mercier’s facebook tip (above) for finding the apple of your cheek is right. But when it comes to blush placement, if you’re using your apple as a guide, make sure that you’re not applying the blush too low. How do you know? Have a look at your blush when you’re not smiling. If your placement is below your nostril, the blush is actually having the effect of dragging your face down. I always recommend applying blush when you’re not smiling. Your cheeks will be at their natural level (as opposed to smiling level!) which will ensure that your placement is exactly…
  • Foundation: meet your match tool

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    20 Jun 2014 | 4:51 pm
    I don’t know many women who actually enjoy shopping for a new foundation. Typically most women fall into the rut of repeat purchasing until the foundation colour or makeup line is discontinued. Women of colour have an even trickier time because they are faced with a limited colour choice. So to combat this, cosmetics companies are constantly trying to think of new ways to encourage consumers to make the switch. The presence of makeup apps and website tools in the past few years has certainly had an impact and helped minimise the reluctance we feel when changing foundations. Iman Cosmetics…

These two stand out on their own amongst the other brown-toned shadows and with my strong affinity to the color purple, I knew I would do something with these two.I didn't see how the colors would turn out exactly in my head so I just let my eyes and hands do the work. I like how the look turned out but didn't expect the purple to look so neutral on me. It's not completely unexpected I suppose..it's a neutral…

L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation ($14.99 USD) is a creamy makeup that blurs skin’s imperfections.  Plus, it has anti-aging benefits and SPF 18 to boot!  It’s available in twelve different shades. I own the Nude Beige shade, which I found to be perfect for my skin.  I found the consistency to be light and creamy.  It wasn’t heavy and didn’t leave me with a sticky feeling.  I was able to apply it without any issues and I loved the overall softer appearance it gave my face.

    Happy Tuesday!  I hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine was.  I had this post planned to be a #ManiMonday post but yesterday but my day didn’t quite go as planned.  I tried to put my son to sleep unswaddled for the first time and he was having none of it.  That threw him off his schedule and I said goodbye to  my “Mommy time.”  Such is life! Being in the summer sun has me craving pretty toes and fingernails!  Do you get that way too? This manicure features Dazzle Dry’s polish and Jamberry’s nail wraps.  I think they make a great summer combo.  This…

  • Topstyler by Instyler Review - How to Curl Hair Using the Topstyler

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:55 pm
    So here I was, watching endless YouTube videos as I do sometimes, and I stumbled upon grav3yardgirl channel where she has the "Does This Thing Really Work" series (FYI, that series is hilarious and so entertaining).  Grav3yardgirl did a review on the Topstyler by Instyler, and let's just say it peaked my interest quite a bit, enough to look up even more reviews and eventually order myself one off of Amazon for $28 (I can't find that listing anymore, but you can find it at Walmart for $78 and Newegg for $30).Once I received the Topstyler by Instyler package, I was impressed by the great…
  • A Good Hair Day with Neutrogena & Hair Repair

    18 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
    Anyone can tell you that a "good hair day" is much more than that.  Good hair translates to a great day where you feel confident and beautiful and are ready to conquer your to-do list (and anything in between).  It's those bad hair days - after staying too much in the sun, dabbling in some diy ombre, or over-using the straightener - that make me truly appreciate the glorious "good hair day."Over the years, I admit I've made my mistakes that resulted in damaged hair and hair breakage, and I am now ready to fix it all and get my healthy hair back with Neutrogena Triple Repair System.

Companies such as Avon and Estée Lauder (who own MAC, Smashbox, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown etc), have even altered their prior no-animal testing policy in order to sell in the country. On Monday, June 30th, the Chinese Food and Drug Administration has officially stopped requiring animal tests on ‘ordinary cosmetics,’ including make up, fragrances, skin, hair and nail care products!  Troy Seidle, the…

    I made a video!  It’s a hair video.  A five minute messy waves hair video.  Did I mention it’s a video? Everyone loves quick hairstyles , so I figured I would record a little tutorial for you all and show you how I’ve been doing mine.  Even with my ridiculous amount of hair it only takes me five minutes, so it’s pretty quick.   Anywho, let’s watch the tutorial.  I’ll list all the products and links under the video box.       Products Used: Ultra CHI Flat Iron KMS Freeshape Heat Protectant Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray L’oreal…
  • Fake Eyelashes For Dumb Dumbs

    Nicole
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    I have a confession to make.  I suck at putting on fake eyelashes. Which is SUPER weird because years ago I used to wear them every day and I could literally put them on on the subway.  Now I can hardly get them on at my desk.  What the hell is that? I guess I’m just out of practice.  The point is, I feel like I’m a beginner at this all over again.  So being that I’m not so slick at it anymore I’ve been compiling a little list of tricks that help me suck at it less so I can get back in the swing of it.  Fake eyelashes for beginners – Let’s do this.

    Today’s post is a little different than my usual content.  I want to talk about deodorant.  I know that’s not really makeup and beauty, but it goes on your armpits so technically I guess it’s skincare, right?  Those are made of skin. As you may have gathered from the fact that I am perpetually testing, using and wearing non-natural products, I’m not the earthy type. I like to look polished.  I’m aware of all the synthetic chemicals that are present in my makeup and nail polishes, and I choose to use them anyway. I do choose higher quality and more natural…

    Rubies, the deep red birthstone of July is the rarest  and  most valuable of  all gemstones.  Since prehistoric times rubies have been mined in Thailand and Burma.  Ancient Indian beliefs held that if a  man offered rubies to the gods, he would become  king or emperor in his next  life ( the actual  upgrade in next life depended on the quality of the rubies he offered to the gods) The clear, rich, red tones of the ruby are very flattering for all colorings, except ruddy skin tones and red hair.  Rubies warm up pale and yellow skin tones and enhance most shades of blonde, gray,…

    Hey guys! Just thought i'd share my twist on a simple pancake recipe!I've never been a huge pancake fan, but i have 2L of almond milk to use up and this is what i thought of first. If you like really fluffy, but still tasty pancakes, then this is perfect. I never did like almond milk, the supermarket brands did nothing for me, and it ruined all my smoothies.. But, i've just recently come across Almond Milk Co. They're a brand new Melbourne based company who hand make raw , gluten, lactose & dairy free, almond milk, (i saw their stand at MICE2014) and they've won me…

  • Help reduce the appearance of acne scars with Chilean rosehip oil

    Rio Rosa Mosqueta
    28 May 2014 | 1:37 am
    Acne is a skin condition that affects most people at some point in their lives and it’s not unusual for affected skin to be left with scars. Chilean rosehip oil can be used to reduce the appearance of scars, and improve the condition of the skin. How does it work? A healthy skin cell has a healthy membrane, which keeps water and nutrients in, and allows waste products to pass out. It is a fatty acid’s job to keep the cell healthy and its membrane functioning. The special composition of omega oils in Rosa Mosqueta oil makes it a valuable source of fatty acids (EFAs). Rosa Mosqueta oil also…

I have tried purple, reds, blues and oranges but nowadays, as far as hair color is concerned, natural with a hint of edgy is better. The new Caramel Range from L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss was quite tempting. I was looking for a shade to compliment and subdue the Ombre I had and this shade, Maple Caramel, literally landed

With the help of Mei Kawajiri and Vanity Projects she has created incredible nail designs that can take up to 5 hours to complete, without taking into account all the research that goes into it. Kenna says, “I’ve always been drawn to how a painting is constructed, whether it’s Old Masters or abstract. [Nail Art History] has given me a different way to appreciate them.”…

Trust us, we’ve looked. Purple isn’t actually found in nature, it’s a man-made colour, and frequently associated with royalty, which may explain why it has become increasingly popular amongst nail artists. Both rare and regal, purple is feminine and goes with almost any outfit. Whilst there are quite a few purple nail polishes there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of…

  • NOTD: Gingham Nails

    23 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    There's something about the gingham pattern that's just so cool. I especially love the pattern in black and white. The contrast of the light and dark bring out the distinctness of the pattern even more. How could I resist putting this design on my nails? Luckily, I didn't have to do it from scratch. I can't imagine how long it would take me to paint this pattern on all ten of my digits. The nail stamps I bought a few months back had a gingham pattern on it. It was still a tedious process, but the result is much better than if I tried to paint it on myself. I'd give myself 10 minutes of really…

    21 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    My hands can always use a good lotion. They get pretty dry during the day - after I wash my hands, after lifting at the gym, etc. - and I end up having to moisturize my hands at least 4-5 times a day. I don't always have hand lotion readily available either, so there are times when my hands just suffer from dryness for hours. When I had the chance to try out Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream, I was very skeptical. It's going to be like all the other hand creams I have. Soft, velvety feel that lasts at best 5 minutes before it wears away.Well, I was wrong! The cream is thicker than most and is…

That infographic got kinda popular on Pinterest — as of right now, it’s been pinned over 200 times! It seems a lot of you really like this idea of painting your nails to subconsciously tap into the good vibes of a certain color. I mean, all you have to do is look down at your hands. What is color therapy, exactly? Color therapy (chromotherapy) is a pseudoscience practiced by alternative healers, which is believed to alter a person’s mental,…

The mirror selfie was invented waaay before the ancient relic that is the old version of Myspace. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking pictures of yourself. What harm are you doing? Your soul isn’t being sucked into the camera. You’re not becoming a vain shell of a human. Selfies allow you to control how you’re seen by the world.

    MiBellaReina - Beyond Beauty
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    When and how to motivate yourself to exercise is one of the biggest obstacles that people face when working out. I hate working out. There I said it. I like exercise after it’s done. The sheer thought of dragging myself to the gym doesn’t put a big grin on my face. What motivates anyone to go to the gym or run or just move? I signed up for an 8 week boot camp in May thinking that would motivate me. It was a little depressing the first two weeks, mainly because I was with people (half my age) that could run (yes run), squat, and do burpees (don’t ask). My original goal in…

    Not to say women have different esteem issues than men, but we do. How do we develop a strong mind and some confidence? Strong-mindedness is not stubborn or willful. A strong mind has a set of beliefs, which give you integrity and a complete sense of confidence. Can you always feel confidant?  Maybe not always, but a strong mind with a strong body will give you self-esteem and posture to overcome most obstacles. Working out the body with just about any exercise will increase your confidence, but yoga seems to create such a mind-body connection that it’s easier to achieve with yoga.
