She was inspired by Suki Waterhouse, who got a similar crop two months ago, but unlike the model's haircut, Selena's wispy bangs fall over her big brown eyes and blend easily into her layers. Bangs are something we all consider when it's…
  • The Stars Were Sitting Pretty in the London Fashion Week Front Row

    The clothes that come down the runway today are sure to hit the red carpet tomorrow. So we weren't surprised to see an A-list-caliber celebrities sitting front row at the biggest London Fashion Week shows. Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss were huddled up next to the Burberry Prorsum catwalk; Hailee Steinfeld and Alexa Chung previewed the Topshop Unique Spring collection; and Drew Barrymore partied with Stella McCartney in the name of eco-friendly fashion. The only question we have left is who had the best hair and makeup: the runway models or the celebrity attendees?
  • Claws Out! The Hautest Nails From London Fashion Week

    Jessica-Cruel
    15 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Forget the jewelry and the bags - the best accessories coming down the London Fashion Week catwalk are the nails (yeah, we said it, fashion-lovers). So far we've spotted the bold, bright colors expected for Spring, but we've also seen totally new techniques, too. The nail team at J. JS Lee topped each tip with pressed flowers - like real petals - and that's only the beginning of the amazing manicure artistry. Now move that envelope clutch out of the way so the real runway star can get some camera time (#nailparty).

    I'm not sure a more luxurious designer exists than Tom Ford. I feel compelled to want everything he does, from his sunglasses and beautiful ready to wear collections to his fragrances. And now, as if that weren't enough, I've gone and discovered Tom Ford Black Cherry Nail Lacquer.Seriously, just look at it. This is the perfect hybrid of deep black, chocolate brown and ripe cherry red, creating a color so smokily delicious, it's a wonder I haven't tried to eat it. The color sweeps on evenly and effortlessly, with two coats providing full coverage. One coat is almost enough -- and if you want…

What was better than taking a white T-shirt, knotting it up with rubber bands and dipping it into buckets of dye? Um, NOTHING, that's what. So, when I had the opportunity to wear the tie dyed shirt you see above (which happened to be a Drama Club T-shirt emblazoned with the cast of a show I did) ... well, you better believe I thought I was the most fashionable person around.Which, let's face it, for the late 90's, maybe I was.What's a fashion…

    Jamie

    YOU GUYS. The M.A.C The Simpsons Collection is here and it's GLORIOUS. I started watching The Simpsons when it first premiered in 1989. I actually HAD to watch it as an assignment for my fourth grade class -- my teacher had us write a paper on whether it was suitable for children. My brother especially took to the show, which I like to think is due in large part to his older sister saying we had to watch it. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.) Well, while I may have gotten away from watching the show in its later years, I was still pretty excited when M.A.C announced this collection.

Usually, I avoid them like the plague. But in the case of Beverly Hills Nails, located in Pittsburgh's Greentree neighborhood, I'm making an exception.This nail salon is fairly unassuming from the outside, as most walk-in places tend to be. It's located in a strip mall (which, coincidentally, also has a really good restaurant called Coach's, but that's neither here nor there). Once I walked in,…

It is called Collection États Poétiques and it really does play upon the opposites with color - from bright yellows and shocking pinks to the softest shades of golden barely there pink and beige. The collection really does run the spectrum and has something for everyone. I am most excited about the redesigned eyeliner pen that I am really loving (more on that below).

    Nicole Richie has been quite the hair daredevil lately, switching up her brave color choices almost as often as we go for polish changes—well, maybe not that often. But being one of the first to rock jewel-tone dyes like shades of purple and blue, she’s mastered how to transform the look from edgy to chic like a pro. Take over the weekend for example: Nicole pulled the bright blue bob that we’ve been loving, into a sleek low moño. The classic style is polished, classy, (chances are it was simple enough to create in a matter of minutes), and slicked into the tiny knot,…

    Bobbi Brown Hot Berry Lip Color Bobbi Brown Hot Berry Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright, pink berry.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and violet iridiescent shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smidgen of translucency that enabled the natural lip color to come through (this may turn red on those with more natural red pigment in their lip color). The consistency was lightweight, creamy, and easy to apply and didn’t have any issues on or when I pressed my lips together (a problem with some of the other shades…

    Clé de Peau Stellar Gaze (307) Eyeshadow Quad Clé de Peau Stellar Gaze (307) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of four, warm-toned autumnal shades that range from gold to plum. The texture of the eyeshadows is soft, velvety, lightly creamy and silky, while being incredibly blendable. They feel smooth to the touch, and the finishes are particularly flattering on the eyelid–think a luminous, glowy highlighter that adds life but doesn’t accentuate pores–this is in the same vein, just for the eyes. All four shades lasted for eight and a half hours, and the first…

I first fell in love with the tiny Hakuhodo Kinoko brush and its maple handle a couple of years ago at IMATS. The entire maple range is gorgeous, but I already have more than enough regular and oversized Kabuki brushes, so I couldn't justify another one (kicking myself, because: maple!). But a super-compact directional goat hair Kinoko is versatile and travel friendly. It's completely round but incredibly small for a face brush (the hair is 30mm…

Previously I was mostly a devoted user of the Aromachologie shampoo, but the last few weeks have found me falling deeper into the L'Occitane rabbit hole and thoroughly enjoying the new fragrances and textures. The new Aromachologie products come in two scents: Relaxing (a somewhat bitter orange blossom/neroli blend), and Revitalizing (a crisp herbal). Both are a good example of L'Occitane's Provencal aesthetic, and utterly satisfying.The main reason I'm such a big L'Occitane fan is the fact that the products are…

One of the sweetest things about Bob is that he actually gives kisses, not just headbutts. And even though he's clearly a momma's boy, he's incredibly friendly and loving with just about anyone who comes in and pays attention.COPYRIGHT ©2006-2014 GAIA FISHLER WWW.THENONBLONDE.COM, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

The new release (the first of a new series--- Sotto La Luna= under the moon) from Tauer Perfumes feels like at least two perfumes trapped in one bottle. Maybe Three perfumes, actually, and at times they're fighting with each other for dominance. I like some parts,  find others more than a little difficult, appreciate the roller-coaster and the complexity, and feel disoriented when the ride is over.My first impression was "wow!".

    Confession time: It’s been about a year since I’ve let scissors near my hair. In my defense, my hair is pretty healthy and I like the undone, imperfect look. That said, I can’t explain away split ends, which I’m starting to see. I’m stubborn about having long, healthy hair though so that means no coloring and keeping trims to a minimum. Quality products are absolutely a must both for preventing and treating naturally occurring damage. In short, salon results without actually stepping foot into a salon. In response, I’ve been spending a lot of time with the new L’Oreal Advanced…

Touted as a “modern lipstick,” the new formula comes in 40 rich colors that satisfy every lip color wish list. It truly is a step towards luxury and one that I’m obsessing over. First off, the packaging is a hefty metal tube with a magnetized closure that clicks into place. I’m not going to lie. The brushed surface does attract fingerprints if that’s a concern, but the tube still manages to look…

Like many moms-to-be, I’ve been loving the fast-fashion prices and high-quality feel of ASOS Maternity and H&M Mama, but even still — re-wardrobing oneself when you have a baby budget on the horizon can be kind of stressful. Now solidly in my seventh month, I’d say only about 20% of the clothes I wear are “actual” maternity.

But this year, we also prepped my son with amazing learning apps on his new Kindle Fire HD.  Now when he comes home from school (exhausted and ready for some quiet time) he takes 20 minutes to play games (and usually cuddle with his best buddy).  Little does he realize he’s getting some extra learning time in!   Colin was diagnosed in the spring with a learning disability, so we have been learning a lot about how to support his learning at home.

    You know I preach to get dressed every day to look and feel your best.  Too many moms roll out of bed and hit the ground running to get the kids off to school with no regard for themselves. The problem with not taking 15-20 minutes minimum to get yourself ready is that you are neglecting yourself.  When something is neglected, it quite literally is disrespected.  I know you’d hate for your kids to disrespect you so why do you do it to yourself? Here is a rule of thumb to remember: do 1 of 3 things if you are extremely limited on time… do your hair, makeup or dress nice. If you…
  • The “It” Look for Fall 2014

    Tammy Gibson
    8 Sep 2014 | 2:32 pm
    It’s great to have a go-to “uniform” that allows you to quickly put together your outfits with little thought. Having a formula for your outfit is what provides effortless chic style. Kate Middleton has a “uniform” of lady-like dresses and classic pumps. Kate Moss has a street style uniform of denim, black top and black boots of various heights. Angelina Jolie can be found wearing the simplest of lines in very classic shapes. For the mornings when you don’t have time to think about what to put on, it’s good to have a few looks you can rely on. One…

    Let me ask you a question…How is your skin doing? Is it healthy, clear, glowing? Or, is it dull, broken out and feeling dry? What you eat and what you put on your skin will influence the texture and condition of your skin. If you are not completely satisfied with how your skin appears without makeup then you need to make some changes. Thankfully, there are great product lines to assist us and our different skin types. My skin is aging. The fine lines are getting deeper and I am very aware of it. It is time to change up the skin care routine to a system that has powerful active…

    Pretty doesn’t always start out that way. Sometimes it has to get ugly before it gets pretty…kinda like life! Know that with a few important steps and consistent action, things turn for the better. Take this pretty chignon for example: Not so pretty… 1. Section crown and back comb. 2. Start back combing and work towards the back round of the head. 3. Starting with the last section back combed, smooth and shape hair into place. (section by section) 4. Twist and pin left and right side sections in middle back. 5. Gather remaining hair in a ponytail. And lightly back comb. 6.

Although this backpack is supposedly a seasonal runway piece, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if Chanel kept making and selling them in some form for a few more seasons. They are INCREDIBLY popular with the Miley Cyruses and Bella Thornes of the world (and their followers), thus providing the sort of youthful infusion that older brands like Chanel need in order to attract a new generation of customers.

    When it comes to man bags, it seems there are two major categories: work bags and casual messengers. There are other options here and there, but men have never taken to man bags like women have to our bags, and I don’t see that changing drastically anytime soon. A sleek briefcase is one of the best bags you can invest in as a dude, and just like with women’s bags, I love finding the ultimate options. For this week’s Man Bag Monday, I’ve turned to Hermès, the brand known for inciting hysteria over their Birkins. This men’s briefcase is just as lovely. The Hermès…

    Wet n Wild LA Street Wear Mega Last Matte Lip Color features four limited edition lip shades, and has already hit counters state-wide. Mega Last Matte Lip Color is similar to the other Mega Last Lip Colors I’ve reviewed in the past. The tube has a matte, black outside though, which is appropriate for the finish of the lipstick.

    15 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    When I was a kid, I loved going to Miami. My grandmother had an apartment on Brickell Avenue which overlooked the water and all the other high-rise condos, and we’d go with my mother into Key Biscayne for lunch to see where they used to live. It was inevitably hot as hell, and my grandmother wouldn’t always make the most politically-correct comments–in that cringey, IDGAF-way that old people have–but being with family in the place my mother grew up felt so special. Lo and behold, Erik is from Miami, too! Since we’re such a baby relationship (feels weird to…

    Obviously, the biggest royal development this week occurred in Duchess Kate‘s uterus, where a tiny embryo implanted roughly 10 weeks ago is assured press coverage for the rest of its life. The oddsmakers have already started to take bets on what the new Royal Baby’s name will be. Ladbrokes has James as the top pick, at 6-1, with Arthur, Elizabeth and Victoria tied at 8-1. PaddyPower has Elizabeth, Victoria, Mary and Philip at 10-1. Other names? Arthur (12-1), Charles (12-1), Henry (14-1) and William (14-1) for a boy; and Charlotte (12-1), Alexandra (12-1), Alice (14-1) and…
  • HRH Strikes Back: Royal Baby, The Sequel

    Prince William this morning in Oxford after Duchess Kate‘s pregnancy was announced As my friend emailed me this morning, “Congratulations! A person you do not know is pregnant again!” Indeed, that’s my favorite part of royal baby news: people patting me on the back and sending well wishes my way, as if I had something to do with it. If last year was the year of weddings, this year has been the year of babies. No fewer than 6 of my close friends are pregnant or have recently delivered, and my baby IQ has skyrocketed. I must say, I feel bad for Kate. (Time for a grammar…

  • Sensitive Skins Rejoice! Clarisonic Luxe Cashmere Cleanse Facial Brush Head Review

    Row
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:47 am
    I love the concept of the Clarisonic, I really do, and I have had about 4 versions (that I have bought and also as press samples) over the years, because I just like to have one to hand.  But can my sensitive skin handle daily use of this cleansing device? No, it can’t.  I have tried to use this just once a day because I love how it deep cleanses the skin but there’s no doubt that it can make me red, and at worse, break out.   Therefore I have to ration how often I use this brush.  Now! I managed to get my hands of one of their 3 new brush heads – the Cashmere Cleanse, which has…

    Now here’s a way to feel instantly old; it has been TWENTY – yes TWENTY years since Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece film, Pulp Fiction was released.  To celebrate the anniversary, Urban Decay – who else – has released a make up collection inspired by the film.   Pulp Fiction is one of my most iconic films (not my favourite Tarantino, that goes to Inglorious Basterds!), and it’s definitely one that reminds me of being young.

    So I told you a few posts ago about my trip to Paris…well as always, I seem to end up hauling beauty goodies even when it isn’t my intention too.  I knew I would be popping into a pharmacy on my trip and probably a Sephora, but I actually found lots of lovely goodies to buy whilst away.  Of course, I had to pop into a few French Pharmacies whilst away. They are everywhere in Paris and to be honest, quite similar in what they sell, so I didn’t bother scouring for any particular superstore type Pharmacy, I just visited the ones closest to my hotel.  They have SO many amazing skincare…

    Last week Burberry released their latest fragrance, My Burberry, the name coming from the way that people refer to their Burberry trench coat.  The advertising campaign, if you have seen it, features Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne and is shot by Mario Testino.  My favourite thing about this new perfume is that you can monogram your scent online and through selected Burberry stores with up to 3 initials…this is mine! There is no extra cost for monogramming.  The perfume captures the scent of a garden after the rain and is a floral.  Notes include Sweet Pea, Freesia, Rose Absolute. It has…

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

    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?

    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…

    Straightforward enough brown color with a shimmer that’s not overwhelming - so even if you don’t love shimmery eyeshadow, wearing this one won’t make you look or feel too “glittery.” When applied dry, this color softens a bit, so if you’re looking for the same brown color that appears in…

Fyrinnae’s site even says that this color won’t exhibit as much colorshift as many of its other Arcanes. The shift is there, but it’s more of a color-depth shift (looks brighter orange-gold…

    Etude House's new Wonder Pore Freshner (yes it is actually spelled wrongly, as in "Freshner" not "Freshener" (which would be the correct spelling) - don't ask me why!), billed as an "Ultra Pore Solution" with "10-in-1 benefits" already seems to be getting a lot of interest from people. Etude House claims the new Wonder Pore Freshner is an improvement over Etude House's existing Wonder Pore Product (also called Wonder Pore Freshner, but with a mere 7 in 1 benefits instead of 10), and the moment I posted about this on my Instagram and…

    11 Sep 2014 | 6:30 am
    DKNY has recently released their new fragrance, MYNY (My New York, if you're wondering what it means), and as the name implies, this is meant to celebrate all things New York - the eclectic, unique individuals and the urban, carefree, spirited vibe of the city. I suppose it makes sense, since DKNY is itself a New York-based brand. DKNY MYNY Perfume: Inspired by New York and its people The bottle for DKNY is pretty cool tool, with a heart shaped bottle top.

There are 25 shades in all, and during the Guerlain X StyleXStyle workshop that I attended (where I got to meet local celebrity Sharon Au and the famed local makeup artist Andy Lee), I managed to shamlessly swatch almost all the shades - I swatched a total of 23 out of 25 shades, so you should thank me for the effort!

    I think I've been pretty good this time round! I've actually used up a whole lot of stuff with this round of empties! There are 6 products in here, so perhaps numbers-wise this isn't the most, but 3 of them are tubs of moisturizers, so I get some credit, right? As an aside, though, I've always felt like the "empties" post is perhaps something only the beauty junkie can appreciate. I mean, normal people with like, 3 eyeshadows and 1 blush and 1 powder foundation and 2 lipglosses don't go around telling people, "O Hai I finished up my eyeshadow! So happy!

This certainly is something a little different from what Elizabeth Arden is known for, since the brand is probably best known for its anti-aging products geared towards more mature ladies.

In her 2014 book “Diary of a Mad Diva”, Rivers calls Jennifer Aniston “stupid”, Tyra Banks “bulimic”, and claims that “Kanye West’s new son is going to be named P***y in honour of where he came from.” Her acerbic style wasn’t a hit with everyone, and some…

    Melt & Pour soap can be a lot of fun. As far as soap making methods go, this one probably offers the widest range of complexity. You can keep things easy by making a solid colored soap, or spice things up with layers, additives, and embedding. It all just depends on how much you feel like taking on.  This particular recipe is about a medium as far as difficulty goes. It involves coloring and scenting two batches of base and layering them into their molds. The result is a pretty two-toned bar with a pleasant layered scent.  Ingredients 1 pound Clear Coconut Melt & Pour Base 2…

    A question that I often get is what the difference is between a micellar (water) cleanser and a regular cleanser that you use with water? Regular cleansers move dirt and impurities around and hopefully off your face while water cleansers use micelles to capture dirt and impurities like a magnet and immediately off the skin so no rinsing is required - and since you don't need to do any sort of rinsing or aggressive scrubbing, they are a great choice for sensitive skin. Here are a few that your skin will love: Lotus Aroma Refreshing Micellar Solution - 200ml - $18 - cleans and thoroughly…

I can deal with night sweats, insomnia, even the mood swings, but those hot flashes are awful and even worse is how they sneak up on you! My poor co-worker suffers terribly every day. She can’t take hormone replacements because she experiences side effects. She’s tried all the over the counter treatments, herbal remedies, black cohosh, cooling gels, pretty much anything she could try she has; none of them have worked for her. She keeps a fan on her desk and when I hear the fan going, I…

    Question of the Week: When a beauty product is labeled “Limited Edition” (LE), are you more inclined to purchase it? It depends on the product, if I like it I am more apt to buy it if it’s limited edition. I often find though, that the limited edition status is over used. Gouldylox Reviews – Need dark circle help?

      I love pound cake anytime of day—for breakfast with some butter and jam, for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea, or for dessert. The cherry compote dresses up the cake nicely. Serves 10-12 For the pound cake (makes 2 loaves) 1 lb. organic butter from grass-fed cows (2 cups); more for the pans 1 lb.

    Somehow, another school year is upon us (or about to be.) In addition to school supplies, new sneakers and the hottest new clothing, parents are ramping up to figure out how to make this the most successful year ever for their kids. Did you know, though, that 'back to school' is different for boys than it is for girls? It's true and parents with sons need to pay attention. Boys are not doing so well academically these days compared to girls. School age boys represent 71% of suspensions and drop out of school at a lower rate than girls. Seventy-five percent of special education referrals…

        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…

    28 Aug 2014 | 4:33 pm
    9My whole life up until now, I've been painting my own nails with non-vegan, super toxic stuff. I only say 'life up until now' because I was recently given the opportunity to try SpaRitual's Wander collection of nail lacquers. SpaRitual is a vegan brand that specializes in nail lacquers that are DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor and Formaldehyde Resin. I first gave the Arroyo shade a try to see what the vegan, non-toxic fuss was about.

    10We all have those days where the mere thought of applying makeup is zapping what little energy reserves you have to make it through the day. It's even worse when said day is one in which you have to appear like you did put some effort into appearance. A 9-to-5 for example. Luckily, there exists powder foundation. I recently gave Shiseido's Sheer and Perfect Compact Foundation in Natural Light Ivory (I20) a go to see if it's the perfect solution to looking effortless without a whole lot of effort.

(Too weird? Fine, I'll stop.) MAC's A Novel Romance Eyeshadow x 4 palette is just one of three released under the collection of the same name. On a very unromantic day, I gave this palette a spin.

Lauren Bacall was nearly always shot in close up, and you never get tired to that face. Those saucy, wide-set eyes and downturned mouth set against a voluminous head of…

    When choosing highlighting 80 % of women do not consider their individual skin tone. They usually see a hair color on a celebrity or on a friend, and give it a try and end up hating it. “The biggest rule of thumb is that your natural hair color is the shade range that you should stay within 2 shades of your natural hair color.

But in today's skincare world, it's one of the most effective practices in achieving a beautiful, more radiant complexion and well-hydrated skin.I've been using face oils the past few years and have truly loved the benefits, but was rather intimidated when I first began incorporating them into my routine. If your curious, but not sure how to use them, check out this simple breakdown:OIL BENEFITS: So, what makes face oils so fabulous? For starters, they hydrate like none other, absorbing quickly into skin, preventing…
  • SUMMER STAPLE: APPLY YOUR SPF WITH EASE

    Christina Marrale
    19 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    When reaching for an SPF, there are 3 factors that always come to mind: Stick to mineral-based, keep the application simple and use nothing under SPF 30. Which is exactly what Colorescience had in mind when creating their Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen.What appealed to me about Colorescience was the convenience factor — I can apply the refined powder in a flash, knowing it will blend seamlessly into my body, face and scalp. It is also a physical, UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen that's free of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients. I toted the SPF along with me to Vegas last week for my…

     NARS created the look for the Marc Jacobs SS ‘15 runway show. François Nars, Founder & Creative Director, described: “The look for the show features no makeup – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to make a statement by not applying anything. This goes back to one of the looks that I’ve always loved – bare skin, nothing on the face, lips or eye, just beautiful skin – I love makeup but I also love seeing women without makeup. To me, it’s a great way to show fashion. It…

    NARS has released a series of reformulated polishes with higher shine, more flexibility, and a longer-lasting formula. There are 43 shades in all, and I have fourteen for a quick preview ($20 each). As with the NARS 3.1 Philip Lim collection (previewed here) (available on Nars.com and Sephora), the new permanent polish range has a wide, flat brush for easy application. These are available at Nordstrom, Sephora, Nars online, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales, I love the new brush-the shorter bristles and shape allow for quick, foolproof application.

Lead NARS Artist Francelle Daly explained her vision. “There is a lot of see-through transparency and airiness to the collection – I wanted that to come through in the makeup. My inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning light hits you as you wake up in your bedroom, with sensual skin 3. with rays of light. I highlighted the cheek bones, high planes of the face and the bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out that glow in each girl.” FACE Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer…

  • How Can You Get Rid of Skin Sun Spots?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    15 Sep 2014 | 11:45 am
      Skin sun spots, also called solar lentigines (solar lentigo if it is just one spot) are common. In my dermatology practice, I am asked every day by my patients to help them fade or get rid of their unwanted sun spots. There are a number of “tricks” and tips that we use to do this. Because sun spots are so tenacious, the best results come from an “all of the above” approach to controlling sun spots. That means using a combination of: prevention (to stop the development of new spots or darkening of existing spots) skin care products that fade existing spots procedures…

    Among the many skin nuisances are tiny bumps under the eyes. These pesky bumps can be hard to remove depending on the cause. Considering how important eye contact is for interactions, it can add stress to this already frustrating issue. Dr. Bailey addresses this problem when she tackles a readers question regarding bumps under the eyes in her blog post: “What Causes Bumps Under the Eyes?“ What Causes Bumps Under the Eyes? Dr. Bailey always recommends visiting you local dermatologist to diagnose any skin problem since the skin is a complex organ (largest organ in your body!).
  • What Causes Sunspots on Skin?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    8 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Sunspots on skin, called solar lentigines, are due to sun exposure. They are flat brown spots that show up on the parts of your skin that have been exposed to the sun. Once you start getting sunspot on skin, expect them to darken and increase in number with every UV ray that hits your skin. Any UV ray from the sun will darken your sunspots. Yes, that means that even the sun that comes through windows, that bounces off cement or water, or that passes through clouds will worsen your sunspots. What about tanning beds – can you outwit the process by tanning using unnatural UV light? No,…

      To continue on the same vein as last week, we are discussing alternate acne treatments. When medications or skin care products don’t seem to work, people often turn to other options, such as zinc supplements. One particular question Dr. Bailey is often asked from her patients and blog readers is “Do zinc supplements really work to get rid of acne?” In her practice, Dr. Bailey uses her Foaming Zinc Cleanser for body acne or acne caused by pityrosporum yeast as she details in her original blog post How to Get Rid of Back Acne (Bacne). However, the same rules do not…

    Urban Decay has a new palette out that is exclusively available at Ulta, called the Shadow Box. This palette is pretty much a lineup of Urban Decay’s all-star colors, with a couple brand new shades thrown in to make it special.  The packaging here is nice and sleek- it’s cardboard packaging that has a magnetic closure of the UD logo. When you open the palette, there is a mirror on the inside lid, with Urban Decays “Beauty with an edge” slogan writen on the bottom. You get two rows of six eyeshadows, and a nice variety of shade colors. Not so much variety as far as texture goes,…

UD’s 24/7 liners are by far my favorite- they are super creamy and pigmented, and within seconds dry down and last aaaaaallllll day long! This set includes a full size Perversion Pencil, which is, in my opinion, the absolute best black liner money can buy, along with nine brand new shades, and UD’s Grindhouse Pencil Sharpener (which, by the way, is THE best eyeliner sharpener.

Vice 3 is similar to Vice 1 and 2 palettes in a few ways- it comes in a  super sleek case, has a GIANT mirror that sits against the top (and opens to the perfect angle to see yourself and apply your makeup) and includes 20 beautiful, pigmented shades.  The packaging on Vice 3 is beautiful- super slim case, with an awesome design and textured lime green logo. I also LOVE that there is a mirror that is just as big as the case- and the way the palette opens up means the mirror is…

There are 20 decals in the package: 10 black and 10 white ones and come in three different sizes. I used 2 coats of Essence Colour & Go in Nude It as my base color.

    Using the yoga mat regularly has its own perks. All of us are aware of this fact. We read about this everywhere and then 80% of us conveniently come up with a fabulous excuse to not exercise.

So when I found myself needing a few items, I turned to online shopping.

I have a deep appreciation for beautiful things, and couture hats are no exception.

    I feel lucky I have had the pleasure of using the Moana Moisturiser (NZ$99 or roughly $81 USD) for the past four weeks. It comes in an elegant pump bottle, dispensing the exact right amount of light creamy white lotion to cover face and neck, with a smidge left over for the back of my crepey hands. The first time I used it, I noticed a bit of a tingle and tightening, but nothing radical. The odor is clean, dissipates quickly and is pleasant while it lasts; it’s very natural and not perfume-like or fake at all. And this is the big selling point with this and all products of this line:…

Neutrogena walks the talk with a website that is “100% powered by nature,” and it continues to be a green beauty warrior with recycled paper and plastic and formulas that are “on average” 94%…

At 15, when my braces came off, my teeth (which had been forced together in a cage for 2.5 years) sprang apart again during their very first night of freedom, as if to cry, “You can’t contain my spirit!” The orthodontist sighed and told me she could fix the gap if we put the braces back on, but I refused. The gap, I thought, looked cool. Years later, it has become my favorite feature. It defines my smile—and I make sure to highlight it as much as I can. When I whiten my teeth and put on some ultra-bright, blue-based red…

    Pseudofolliculitis barbae. It may sound like some kind of medieval torture device, but it’s not—though its effects can feel almost as painful. This is the medical term for ingrown hairs, those pesky bumps that crop up after shaving or waxing. When a hair curls and grows underneath the skin, instead of growing straight out of the follicle, you get an ingrown hair. They appear as raised, red bumps that look a lot like pimples, and are often quite painful to the touch. Ingrown hairs are such a nuisance that we asked not one, but two experts to weigh in on their treatment and prevention: Dr.

    This post was sponsored by #CollectiveBias Want to know the number one question people always ask me? I always get asked this, ‘How can I achieve amazing skin?’. And my reply is pretty much the same, drink water, cleanse/ moisturize, sleep well and manage your skincare religiously. It is not about putting makeup on, skincare and what we put inside our bodies does matter both fluids and food. My number one piece of advice is to drink your water and eat it as well, as in try to eat water-based veggies like cucumber, tomatoes, watermelon, strawberries. All these veggies have one…

    On Sunday, I went backstage again, this time it was a group of well-known Australian designers showing at Pier 57 Studios. These talented group fall under the umbrella of Fashion Palette, with shows in New York and Sydney, Australia. What was even more awesome, is the fact that there were several designers and a giant area of hair and makeup where I roamed and checked out the inspiration. The makeup sponsor was Gorgeous Cosmetics from Australia and the hair products and team were from Redken. The makeup inspiration was elegant with very smoldering smokey eyes.

    It’s been about as humid and warm as it gets the last few weeks here. Although most people would pass on applying some form of makeup, I just can’t. This is where a CC cream with sheer coverage, sun protection and soft finish work wonders. Juice Beauty CC cream in Warm Glow is a certified organic, color correction cream (like a BB cream but lighter in every sense of the word, more like skincare I’d say). Juice Beauty CC cream worked extremely well under humid heat and offered SPF 30 protection, a non-negotiable for my skin. See my selfie with sunglasses on? That’s me…

    A throwback to our ballerina days we have been busting out our romantic purple and lilac eyeshadows this season and teaming them up with our ballerina hair buns. The trick is to avoid the 'bruised lid look' that these colours can sometimes do... Here are our tips to wear the right shade of purple for you:1. Light lavenders and pastel purples tend to look good on everyone. Brighter bolder colours are for the courageous and adventurous!2. Stay away from purples with red undertones as they accentuate the red vessels in your eyes. 3. Blend blend blend and blend well. A brown matte eyeshadow on…

    For keeping my hair up, I’ve always been a hair clamp gal but a couple of weeks ago I decided I was going to try something different – using hair ties. They just look so much tidier worn with a ponytail and the way hair swings from side to side when you move is also kinda cuteSo when I came across these Kitsch Hair Ties I knew I had to have them. They are utterly adorable! They are handmade with great quality. My favourite of this bunch has to be the I need coffee one which has been quite popular on the busy job.

  • Revolution Makeup Iconic 3 Palette Swatches- Naked 3 Dupe

    11 Sep 2014 | 10:02 am
    Yesterday, I posted swatches of the Iconic 2 Palette by Revolution Makeup (a UK based brand) and compared them to Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette.  The similarities in both quality and shades were striking and so is the price difference! Urban Decay's Naked Palettes are $54, while the Iconic Palettes are $6.60. Shipping from London will cost you $13 for a total of just under $20, for pretty much the same thing it's a really good deal.Since I didn't want to waste $13 shipping only one item, I also bought the Iconic 3 palette, which is also a dupe for the Naked 3...have a look!Compared to…

    A hair loss cream is a cream especially prepared for the hair to prevent hair loss. Dust, pollution, exposure to wind and sun causes damage to your hair causing it to break and fall. Lack of nutrition to hair is also a significant reason for hair loss. There can be a number of reasons for poor hair condition and hair fall. People who don’t take proper care of their hair face many hair related problems and start losing their hair at a very young age. Loss of hair can become a reason for stress and worries. When your hair starts to fall, a number of people will come up to you advising…
  • Understanding Hair Growth

    Behary
    29 Aug 2014 | 7:04 am
    Getting rid of hair loss should always mean a complete knowledge of how hair grows and what it is made of. When you are aware of such small things, it becomes easier for you to ensure that you are taking the right steps to stop hair growth. It is highly likely that you are unaware of the hair growth cycle. As a result of this, you start to panic with even the slightest of hair fall. In reality, losing about 100 strands of hair is quite common and it would not have any negative effects on your hair as well. How hair grows? No strand of hair will remain on your head forever. Therefore, it is…

    This is sponsored post for Nexxus through Condé Nast. All opinions and amazingly vibrant hair are my own. For those of us who color our hair, there is one thing we can all agree on – watching the perfect hair color fade away is a sad, sad experience. I’ve tried a variety of hair care tricks to make my hair color last longer; from washing with cool water to washing my hair less in general to using sulfate-free products. Now Nexxus has developed a color-safe hair care system to take the guess work out of the fading hair color mystery and retain hair’s vibrancy. The Nexxus…

Every part of the flower was – and still is – used; its fragrance is known for helping to calm and re-balance the mind and body, and its extract helps provide astringent and soothing benefits. When the rose has swollen to seed (which is then called Rose Hips), it’s laden with anti-aging and antioxidant Vitamins A, C, D, and E in addition to essential fatty acids – all of which are known to help reduce fine lines, plump up…

    Originally published as Let’s Talk About: Jowls from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. Loss of elasticity around the jawline (drooping jowls) and on the rest of the face is a very common sign of aging. It is part of the natural aging process. HOWEVER, there are a number of things you can do to prevent the early loss of elasticity and reduce the speed at which the skin loses elasticity. Tight jawlines change as we age. But first, let’s talk about how our skin begins to lose elasticity. When you’re young, you can pull at your skin and it will quickly pop right back into place. (Note:…

We’re forever adding to our mood board because we all know nothing brings out a summer glow like an all-white look; we’re milking it for as long as possible, even if it means breaking some sartorial rules. Whites are neutral, and thus basic, and therefore essential. We’re partial to white high-waist, wide-legged trousers, crisp shirts, and gorgeous flowing dresses, but truth be told, these are the little white essentials that we can’t get enough of…

    Here’s a scenario that’s far more common in my life than I care to admit: I text my friends asking if they’d like to meet for brunch or dinner, and the text just hangs there, unanswered for days. Or I e-mail my boss with a question, only to watch her respond to group e-mail threads, but selectively ignore my own message even though it’s clear she’s seen it. I should just accept it, shouldn’t I?

Currently, four out of five women in the U.S. who are sexually active have used the Pill or currently do; and thanks to new advances, you might be surprised (in a good way!) by some of the effects that tiny little thing can have on our bodies.

But it turns out that those same lovely, lovely eyes may just also offer some insight (ha) as to what’s up with your entire body too. According to the experts at LensCrafters, your eyes can actually give you a peek (um, I really promise I’m not trying to pun here) into what’s going on with the rest of you.

    Trying to figure which diets, foods, and exercise regimes actually promote the most effective weight loss and overall health can be difficult, especially when it seems that every other day, a new study makes a conflicting claim. But now experts are insisting that perhaps the most classic dieting tactic—going low-carb—really does have the science to back it up. And what’s more: It doesn’t just help us lose weight, but it’s good for us, too. (And yes, there is a huge difference between the two.

According to new research presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Barcelona, moderate amounts of wine can protect you against heart disease as long as you pair it with regular exercise. Czech researchers tracked 146 participants who had a mild to moderate risk of heart disease. They had half drink red wine and half drink white wine for a year. Men could have about two to two and a half glasses each day, while women could have one to two glasses, The…

So I did my list and because I am loathe to tag people for things like this, just left it  for anyone else to take up and share on, with their own lists.

More than that, I remember how you moved in without me even realising, like a friendly, polite—if a little reserved—houseguest who livened up my home and made it seem all the nicer with you in it. You found yourself a spot in the living room and settled into it, claiming it your own. You visited so often and for such increasing durations of time that eventually you became a fixture and I became so used to seeing you, feeling you, hearing you there that I began to fear you leaving. Yes, you made me fear that fear would…

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…

The fact I had my identity stolen, by an ex, who racked up over £20,000 worth of debt in just a couple of months only helped strengthen my belief, that making sure I felt in control of my money is a must for me.

  • Fake It Until You Make It: Disguising Unwashed Hair

    Lindsey Metrus
    15 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Image via Imaxtree Through all of our handy beauty products, we enhance and improve upon our features that we were born with, and play up the ones that we wish had a bit more prominence. So that saying “fake it until you make it” can really ring true in the beauty world — if you want fuller lips, make them; bolder brows, create them; and a countered jawline, contour it! In this column we’ll teach you the tips and tricks to tweaking your features and “faking it” until you “make it.” We’ve all had those frantic, late-start mornings where it’s a miracle if your shoes…
  • The New Eyeshadow Palettes You Need To Know About

    15 Sep 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Day in and day out, most of us can be found guilty of sticking to the same old routine when it comes to makeup. The truth is, finding products that you love and that make you feel your best isn’t always all that easy, so when we find ones that do, we stick to them. Although it’s important to have a go-to look, we can’t let that stop us from giving new beauty products a try. Our eyes are probably our most versatile feature (since every eye literally comes in different colors, shapes, and sizes). However, we’re pretty confident we have found the best new eyeshadow…

    Selena Gomez has certainly never been one to shy away from changing up her look. From electric blue hair extensions to test driving the boldest of lip colors on the red carpet, the singer takes fun, fearless risks when it comes to hair and makeup, which is why constantly find ourselves stalking her Instagram. This weekend, she debuted some of the cutest wispy bangs we’ve ever seen, and naturally we threw ourselves into the endless debate over whether or not we should cut a fringe ourselves.

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:11 pm
    I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier and her makeup line, in particular her primers and her secret camouflage concealer. I love this statement taken from the Laura Mercier Australia Facebook page: “I’ve always been interested in making women look as beautiful as possible, while making them look like themselves”. I couldn’t have said it better myself! And the truth is when makeup is applied well, either by yourself or a makeup artist, people don’t notice the makeup, they just see you!
  • 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…

    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…

    She was the Kate Moss of her day, her face ushering in a realist art that shocked the Paris bourgeoisie. But who was she? Observers at the time assumed she was a common courtesan, the artist’s lover, or maybe just a scamp from the street. She wasn’t a classical professional artist’s model, who would have posed gracefully, portraying nymphs and muses of old. Nor was she a socialite whose life would be chronicled in the city’s gossip columns. Victorine Meurent …

    We all have at least one. Frenemies. The urban dictionary describes a frenemy as being: “Someone who is both friend and enemy, a relationship that is both mutually beneficial or dependent while being competitive, fraught with risk and mistrust.” Which I think is a perfect explanation of a frenemy. 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,…

    Recently, my family, a friend, and I got the great opportunity to go to Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe and enjoy all the watery fun they had to offer! Thankfully we picked a wonderful day to go. The park was extremely crowded, the weather was nice and hot, and there was a slight breeze. It was a little cloudy, but it never rained and made for a perfect day.Continue reading: Family Fun At Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe #sponsored

  • Review: Pillowettes ~ A New Kind of Cotton Pad

    Lindsey
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:12 am
    Today I am stepping outside of the usual range of products I review in order to highlight a new item I’ve recently added to my kit. Pillowettes by Intrinsics are miniature cotton pillows for your face, and they are wonderful. Made from 100% absorbent cotton fiber, Pillowettes are ideal for makeup removal, and the fact that they are lint free makes them perfect for a variety of different uses. Before I start a makeup application, I always prep the skin. The first step of this process is cleaning a client’s skin with a cotton pad soaked in cleansing oil or micellar water. Is it…

    Lindsey
    12 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    The graphic eyeliner at Cushnie Et Ochs is another one of my favorite looks from NYFW 2015. Key makeup artist Yadim, who coincidentally also created my other favorite look (HERE) describes the makeup as “Cleopatra goes to the Hamptons.” To create the liner Yadim and his team used Maybelline’s Color Tattoo Leather in Dramatic Black.  Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

  • Gamechanger: “The Wet Brush” Review

    Lindsey
    28 Aug 2014 | 12:40 pm
    Do you believe that a hairbrush can have magical powers? Have you tried The Wet Brush? A hairstylist friend of mine gave me The Wet Brush as a gift several months ago and it’s a game changer. If you haven’t brushed your hair with one, I know it sounds too good to be true. How can this hair brush be different than any other hair brush on the market? I’m not sure how, but The Wet Brush glides through even the most knotted, wet or tangled hair with ease, and not a hint of pain. I have a lot of hair and it takes me a long time to detangle it when it’s wet. I inevitably end…

    A Hint Of Sunlight

  • Swimming with the Whale Sharks of Oslob, Cebu

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:31 pm
    Whale-watching in Oslob has created plenty buzz lately and now it's in everybody's bucket list, especially because when you're in Oslob, you're sure to see one. Swimming with the butanding (whale shark) was definitely quite an experience for me. There's something extremely magnificent about these giants. With their size, they could easily be the king of the ocean. But up close, they're so gentle and almost vulnerable.Truth be told though, I had second thoughts about writing this post. I'm really still on the fence here. The more I read about the butanding, the more convinced I am…

    While in the middle of composing my previous post, I also unearthed this photo set somewhere from the recesses of my hard drive. This session was supposed to be 60s inspired. 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…

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.

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…

    I love when I find a simple, easy trick that makes a huge difference.  To be fair this isn’t really like some magic trick that I found, it’s a very common eyeshadow blending technique, but I feel like it gets overlooked a lot.  I always see tutorials where people USE a transition color, but don’t explain it.  In fact I’m guilty of it myself, both in video tutorials and I even skipped over it in my post on blending tips!  What’s wrong with me? Get it together, Quinn! So basically, this is the simplest thing ever, but it will make it much easier for you to…

I can’t even begin to tell you how good I feel when dark lipstick season starts.  I know I could wear them year round (and I do find ways to sneak them in there, don’t get…

    Sometimes the writing of a blog post requires me to do insane things that no person would ever do in normal life.  For example apply and remove five or more lipsticks in one day. Who would do such a thing? My lips were not built to survive that type of abuse.  Don’t get me wrong I love every second of it but it can leave my lips a little . . .sore and crunchy.  It’s sneaky too because it may feel fine after all those swatches, but then the next day its like cracked, dry old lady lips. Ga-ross. Of course I have an arsenal of lip balms, scrubs, treatments and DIYs that I use to…

      Fact: Fall nails are the best nails.  I guess that’s more of an opinion actually.  But it’s MY opinion and I’m sticking to it!  I get very excited when fall rolls around, I love dark moody colors on my lips and on my nails, and I also love knitted hats and scarves so really it’s sorta like my time to be me, ya know?  That’s a pretty dramatic way to say it but you get what I mean. So this year as I was gathering my must have fall nail colors a funny thing happened.  They all turned out to be kinda muted and have a cream finish.  I didn’t plan…

    Deb Chase
    11 Sep 2014 | 10:15 am
    Last  year I was so  astonished at the fantastical towering stilettos at Fashion Week, I barely  paid attention to the clothes.  No only did the heels routinely soar to 5-6 inches, they were studded, sequined, feathered or a combination  of all three.  I knew that I could  not even stand up in these shoes  much less walk around Lincoln Center. Feet, just  like the rest of the body,  changes as the years goes by.  After  age 50 we lose fat pads on the sole, joints swell and lose flexability. To bottom line it,  younger  feet can  frolic in stilettos, but  women of a certain…

I used Elisabeth Arden Flawless Finish cream foundation for years, and it was good in covering dark spots, but on the other hand, it prevented my skin from breathing, pimples used to appear overnight whatever I do, and my face would sweat as if I am exercising just because it is a little bit hot. It wasn’t easy to keep a fresh looking makeup, and sometimes I ended up with a cakey face! That is why I did not like to use…

    Marni Andrews
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:00 am
    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.

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…

    I’ve been following 13thmoon on Tumblr for a few years now, and she never stops enchanting with her beautiful wood burned boxes (which she sells on her Etsy, Moonspells). She’s working on restocking them though (check out the video on her Facebook), because they’re hot sellers. EDIT: The wood burned at boxes are available! Her handmade jewelry, paintings and sculptors are also beautiful/haunting. I really love this necklace in particular. If you like Tolkien, elves, witch/pagan, viking motifs, macabre and haunting things, you’ll love Amalia’s art as much as I do!

  • 10 Simple and Natural Eye Makeup Tips

    MiBellaReina - Beyond Beauty
    13 Sep 2014 | 6:18 am
    Some think that natural eye makeup means not putting on makeup. It’s not about the amount of makeup, it’s about the colors. And the colors does not mean it always must be in the “brown” family. The colors can be greys, pinks, burgundies, or soft whites. The real key to natural eye makeup is to blend, blend and blend  the shades that you choose. Also work to create harmony with your skin tone and the shades that you choose. The darker the skin, the more you have options with the “color wheel” of eye shadows. For starters, the rules for “au natural eye…

    Sweaty hands and feet are no laughing matter. A fine Southern lady would say, “you perspire, you don’t sweat.” When your hands and feet are dripping wet, you are sweating. Okay? You could say that is an understatement, but it affects your #bellahealth and your psyche. Not only are sweaty hands and feet embarrassing; but it gets worse when you are stressed. Figures! This condition known as hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating (perspiring). Now there is even surgery to fix it, but what are other ways to control it without the knife?

    Eye makeup for brown eyes can pop, sizzle and be utterly smashing. Think of all those brown-eyed beauties like Julia Roberts, Halle Berry or Sofia Veragara. Brown eyes, the most common color of eyes, can range from dark to honey. So before just applying any eye makeup tricks, determine the real color of your eyes. Those “brown-eyed” beauties are lucky because they can wear just about any color eyeliner or eye shadow. It’s the tone of the color that makes the difference. One big trick is to make sure that the colors match your eyes. Are your eyes a cool shade of brown (dark…

    The price of beauty in this day and age is staggering. Every year the beauty and cosmetics industry rakes in billions of dollars from women (and many men) eager to fork over their hard earned cash on the latest lotion or potion that promises to make them more beautiful. The natural organic skin care segment (though still in its relative infancy) is no exception. In fact, organic skin care products are oftentimes more costly than their chemically laden counterparts.

    “We are what we eat.” That phrase is used all the time, and the fact is, it’s true. The food we consume actually does contribute to how we look, feel, and act. Our skin and hair are good indicators of what we have been eating over the long run. The occasional grease or fatty food is not going to show. However, if a poor diet is our norm it will be noticeable right there on our faces. Our skin can become dry relatively fast, if we do not keep ourselves hydrated. Among other places a lack of hydration will start to show it’s signs on our skin. Drinking plenty of water helps…

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