    We've learned a LOT over the past ten years! Since e.l.f. is the brand that gets you the most bang for your buck, we thought we'd share the top 10 tips that will guarantee you'll get the most out of your makeup! Enjoy:
  • Olivia's Berry Good Look!

    15 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Source: Getty The beauty looks I'm seeing on the red carpet this season continue to surprise me! From earth tones to metallic eyes, it seems that looks msot of us generally associate with fall are bleeding into summer. No complaints from this elfette--with the insane humidity in NYC this July, a makeup cool-down sounds super refreshing! When I spotted this recent red carpet look from Olivia Munn, it was exactly what I needed to take my mind off the summer swelter: An autumn-toned berry lip! Her golden eye look also harkens to cooler months, but her glowing, dewy skin still reminds us…
  • beauty how-to: SWEET MATTES

    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. Studio High Definition Powder to create…
  • beauty how-to: PRETTY POUT

    10 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Kiss-kiss, smooch-smooch elfette! Oh those lips! If you want to achieve a fun and refined lip, then you're in the right place. You might think throwing on your lipstick one time will do the trick, but precisely defining the shape of your lip takes a little bit more time and practice. Turn heads at the next event with this PRETTY POUT! STEP 1 Moisturize the lips using a balm and prevent the lip color from settling into the lines with the e.l.f. Studio Lip Balm SPF 15, in "Peaceful Pink." STEP 2 Draw in the edges of your lip to create a guide that will hold in your lipstick. Take…

    After body wash, body moisturizer is about as low maintenance as any product you apply to your skin gets. The most important factors are that it smells good, absorbs quickly, moisturizes effectively, and doesn't break the bank (at least I don't want to spend the bulk of my beauty budget on either body cream or body moisturizer).Read the full post Frugal Snob: Nip + Fab Launches New Body Products which appeared first on Snob Essentials.

    I’ve been obsessed with side braids for years now, especially during the hot summer months when you want to keep your hair off your neck as often as possible. Emma Stone makes the style seem effortless, but the relaxed, “undone” look actually requires a bit more doing than you’d expect so I’m turning to the professionals!Read the full post Steal the Look: Emma Stone’s Side Braid which appeared first on Snob Essentials.

When I saw pictures of the Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette popping up last month, I knew I had to find it. I was shocked to find it at my local CVS/pharmacy not long after and I snatched up all three that they had and I am so glad that I did. This is a great palette for the price.

    Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil Recently, there have been five new shades of Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) released. The Velvet formula is “more powdery” than the regular formula, which is supposed to make it easier to blend and smudge out the eyeliner, if desired, for a smoky eye. Otherwise, it’s supposed to have all the long-wearing benefits of the original formula. The consistency definitely has that drier, more powdery feel that the brand talks about, and as a result, it doesn’t apply as evenly as the original pencils…

    Fall 2014 is shaping up to be a great season for eyeliners ( I already bought some from Lancome, NARS, and Laura Mercier. Reviews soon). Now Hourglass is joining the fun with a gel formula in a mechanical pencil. A very very thin mechanical pencil (hence the 1.5mm). From the press release the new Hourglass liner seems to be a true hybrid: not a gel-like pencil, but a real gel inside a pencil-like applicator that holds enough product for a 17 to 20 uses. This is not a lot, which I guess is why the mechanical eyeliner will also be offered in packages of three units ($45) as well as a…

    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…

    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…

As the car pulled onto Mercer Street, I saw a line on the sidewalk longer than I anticipated (by about 150 people). This was the line I was about to stand in. It was sample sale time. The specific sample sale I’m speaking of was Proenza Schouler, which opened its doors to friends and family a day before they opened to the public. I anticipated a bit of a line, but as I got into my place around 8:50 for a sale whose doors opened at 9:00, I realized it was going to be a longer ordeal than I…

If you don’t want to pay four figures for an extremely simple leather tote, though, Alice.D will get the job done for you in exactly the same aesthetically pleasing way as Celine would for around $500. Alice.D goes so far as to print its name on the tote in the exact same way as Céline, which is a detail that should be left to the original, but the brand…

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???

  • Summer Skin Care Survival: 4 Must-Have Beauty Products

    Maria Palma
    14 Jul 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Taking care of my skin during the summer has never been so challenging. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older (probably so, but I'm in denial). I've found myself with a little OCD about my skin and making sure I'm stocked up on skin care products. During a recent camping trip to Sequoia National Forest I only wanted to pack the essentials. It just so happens I received products from California Naturel to review, which are actually the four products I believe that you must have in your beauty arsenal for any summer travel:Read more »

  • How much sunscreen should you put on your face?

    Randy Schueller
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:05 pm
    Ben is bewildered…I recently came across this new article published on Allure Magazine and it got me a little confused. In an article published on Futurederm, it’s explicated that 2.0 mg/cm2 is about 1/4 teaspoon of sunscreen for the average person. However, in the Allure article, author Jenny Bailly wrote this: “For your face alone, you’re looking at about half a teaspoon.” I thought 1/4 was too much, but 1/2? I’ll never be perfect with sunscreen application then. Can you please address this on your blog? The Beauty Brains respond: The answer is there is no…

    We’ve previously touched on the topic of stem cells in our podcast about exfoliation but I still find it annoying when companies talk about plant and human “stem cells” in cosmetics.  That’s completely misleading because there aren’t stem cells in the product no matter what this company claims about their skin cream.    How can I say that with such confidence?  All you have to do is know a little about the science of stem cells and it becomes clear.  So let’s talk about stem cells.

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.

    Hot on the heals of the relaxing of the requirement for animal testing on products imported into China, the Chinese government has now also banned animal testing on products produced in the country itself. I am a bit surprised at … Continue reading → The post China Has Banned Animal Testing For Internally Produced Cosmetics appeared first on Colin's Beauty Pages.

    Zero score and seven years ago, I began the adventure that would become Bionic Beauty. I wanted something a bit special to document this anniversary. After some pondering and hemming and hawwing, I realized a timeline capturing the major events in Bionic Beauty’s lifespan would be perfect. You can also view the timeline on its very own dedicated page. The version on the page is quite a bit larger since I zapped the site’s normal sidebars. Viewing is much easier, but essentially everything else is the same. And good news… wherever you decide to view it, the timeline works…
  • Beauty Tips for Getting Rid of Stress

    18 Jul 2014 | 8:20 am
    No matter what your occupation is, stress is all relative. Whether you are working a 9-5 office job, chasing after children or frantically researching for an essay, you need a break from the grind once in a while. It doesn’t have to break the bank either, although a teeny bit of budget set aside for your stress-busting needs can go a long way. Image source: flickr.com/photos/jalon_dna First things first, get down to Holland & Barrett to grab a pot of coconut oil. The stuff is quite frankly magical and can be applied and even cooked with to reap a multitude of health benefits. Use it as…

    10 Jul 2014 | 11:31 am
    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…

    Scrangie
    7 Jul 2014 | 9:52 am
    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,…

So, sometimes I wear circle lenses in different colors instead of my regular clear contacts.

When speaking to Ms. Sui, she described the scent as “it’s the same girl who wears La Vie de Bohème [launched last year] but this is what she wears at night.” She’s still very bohemian and romantic but at night she comes alive. “She’s like a modern day Shahrazad,” she added. 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…

    We're still scratching our heads about Blake Lively's new website, Preserve, which launched earlier this week, but Vogue just gave us yet another reason to roll our eyes at the star. Blake participated in the publication's online feature "73 Questions," and we learned a lot from her (seemingly scripted) answers. For the record, the best thing to happen to her this month is that her company is launching, and the things she loves most about Canada are Ryan Reynolds's brothers. But what's more interesting is what we learned about her very private relationship with Ryan, whom she casually slips…

    For Leonardo DiCaprio, yacht days typically include relaxing sunbathing sessions and hot models. That wasn't the case when Leo let loose in St.-Tropez on Tuesday. Donning jeans and a white t-shirt, Leo casually practiced his karate moves on the deck. As guests looked on, Leo got a good stretch with a high kick. He didn't take it all so seriously, though - at one point, he smiled and appeared to laugh. The actor headed to France this week after his vacation in Miami, where he went shirtless on the beach and scored some rays. We've been seeing an awful lot of Leo in relaxation mode lately. Over…

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.

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…

One coat is sufficient, but two leaves a really nice rich colour. As it’s a tint, it also stains and lasts surprisingly…

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…

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…

    Makeup artist Jessica Smalls took Becky G's typically fresh and clean look and revamped it to a more grown up subtle look which is nothing less than sexy and glamorous. 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…

    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. Here are 4 celebrity skincare…
  • 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…

    Renée Rouleau
    2 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people complain of getting a sunburn but then say, “But I put sunscreen on!” Sound familiar? The sun is seriously strong, and especially with fair skin types, a burn can be gotten in as little as 45 minutes, so preventing this takes a well thought out plan. Here are my expert tips for keeping your skin safe and protected from the sun whenever outdoors.  Consider wearing UV-protecting clothing. The easiest way to prevent a sunburn from appearing on the skin of the body is to wear a shirt and pants that are made exclusively for…

Remember those bath sponges and loofahs that you bathe with need just as much attention in keeping our skin healthy.A good idea to stave off any potential infections from harboring bacteria in that moist environment is to soak those sponges and loofahs weekly in one part bleach to ten parts of water to sterile.  Keep them immersed for a few minutes before rinsing with water. Allow those sponges and loofahs to air dry thoroughly and hang them somewhere other than your moist, hot bathroom.A few minutes…

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?

And boy, am I excited to show you these - since my last empties post some months back, I've been a good beauty blogger and have actually used up stuff in my stash! And of course this means I have to tell you guys all about it, and do a quick summary of how the products have worked for me! As you might be able to guess, though, chances are, if I used it up, it probably did a pretty good job. So here's what I've used up! Look ma, so many empties!

Harsh detergents, chemical additives, and synthetic dyes and fragrances can do a lot to upset the balance of your little one's health. This recipe uses all-natural Organic Castile Soap diluted with gentle Hydrosols to cleanse baby's skin gently. Just a few drops on a washcloth is all it takes to bathe baby from head to toe. It can even be used as a baby shampoo.  Lavender & Yarrow Baby WashMakes sixteen ounces Ingredients 3 ounces Organic Liquid Aloe Castile Soap 6 ounces Organic Lavender Hydrosol…

  • Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint Foundation Has You Covered For Summer

    Tyna Werner
    23 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    The concept of piling a ton of makeup on my face during the warm summer months is not at all appealing. Summer heat and pollution, mixing with caked-on makeup makes my face start itching. However, even during the warm weather, I want my skin to appear even-toned and free of imperfections. Luckily, I recently tested the Mineral Fusion Sheer Tint Foundation which hydrates, lightly covers, and soothes skin with age-defying botanicals including pomegranate, sea kelp, and red and white tea.

I was asked to try a selection of products from the Botanic Organic for a few weeks and am happy to report, they are incredible. I grew up with oily skin and as I aged it turned into combination skin and nowadays, I am entering the dry skin phase. I am constantly switching up my skincare regimen to accommodate for the changes.

  • EVER BALM for Everything!

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    A friend of mine recently sent me a bottle of EVER BALM by Nue Alchemy to test out. I’m trying to see if I can get some recent scars to fade with it. It honestly seems like it’s fading them, but scars take a LONG time to heal. Either way, it’s great for chafing, burns, irritations, acne scars, sun spots, diaper rash, bikini or shaving rash – all those little things. It’s also perfect as a nightly cuticle conditioner. I’ve used it for so many things already. If you are a curvy girl (or guy) and you need to keep from chafing (if you fit in this category, you know…

Answer: Hmmm…honestly I’m lucky – I have an ever-growing stash of makeup so I’m able to give my friends makeup – and don’t have to worry about the return. However, I would treat it the same way I would when lending any item to a friend. If the item wasn’t all that important to me I might let it go (but never lend to her again!). And if it was an item I cared about, I would most likely jokingly mention it, “Wow, looks like this lipstick has…

    Nothing’s more summer-appropriate than some neon on your fingertips (and toes) for the hot, hot, heat. I tried this year’s latest—and brightest—hues to find out which ones you just gotta get. No matter which neon you choose, for best results, apply it over a white base for extra pop! Essie Serial Shopper Serial Shopper, a neon blend of watermelon and coral, tops my list. While I have a soft spot for all the neons in this post, this shade, from Essie’s Too Taboo collection,  just tugs at my heart strings. The application was just like any other neon, requiring…

    Ok ladies (and guys), this is an article most of us can relate to! I am sure most of you have at least one flat iron, curling iron or blow dryer which gets used weekly or more.

    If you are a breastfeeding mama looking to up or maintain your milk production, give mother’s milk organic tea a try. 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. My Experience: I received this little box of tea from another mama who recommended it to me in the case I ever needed help with my milk supply. My sister had also mentioned it worked for her, so it was a nice little gift to keep…

  • 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…

  • Cool Male Move O’ The Day

    21 Jul 2014 | 4:06 pm
      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 them. It demonstrates awareness. It communicates that you give a rat’s behind about keeping our fair Earth nice. It shows dignity and community consciousness. Stewardship and protectiveness…

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.

  • 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…

She has a fool-proof way of selecting the right talent for her clients. She poses as the underling whose job it is to sign in the actors and models as they come in the door for their auditions. This helps her spot the wheat from the chaff personality wise. Behavior wise, really. Her job is all about booking the right talent for her clients. Not just the best actor or model with the best look—but the best person. The one who will show…

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…

Whether I'm having a date night with my hubby or spending the day indoors working on a deadline, it just has a way of always making me feel feminine and beautiful.For the longest time, I had avoided investing in some truly great pieces as there was always the concern of having them ruined by uh... you know... that time of the month.

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.

    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…

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…

To me, the liquid form can look more natural than some powders because they can be worked into foundation (and even worn mixed in or under foundation for a subtle effect). Unlike some lines, NARS Illuminators are beautifully formulated, never sticky or heavy, and give the perfect amount of sheen to add a healthy-fabulous glow. Their generous size and travel-friendly packaging make these perfect additions to your makeup collection this summer. NARS 413 BLKR ($__) adds a classic pearl…

I wandered over to the Lumina Lacquer website to pick up a few bottles.   One of the colors I purchased is called Silver Springs ($10 USD).

    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…

    My collection of Dance Legend polishes just grew a little, so make sure to check my blog in future as well for more DL swatches. Smoky collection came out in Spring and the colors were perfect for spring time - pastels, but not the way we're used to see them. No, shades from the Smoky collection contain super small black shimmer which makes all the difference. Although the colors are nice and spring-y, they also look murky at the same time. 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…

  • Beauty & The Beach: Hats & Shades For Warm-Weather Days

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

It is a fact that higher-quality brands cost more for good reason, and that not all cosmetics are created equal. But in this age, having the best of everything can be impossible, or it can really strain your budget at the very least.

    Charles Worthington Shine Booster Shampoo and Conditioner Review For as long as I can remember my favourite hair care duo has always been the Aussie Mega Shampoo and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Take The Heat conditioner. However in recent months I’ve noticed it was time for a change because I just wasn’t getting the same refreshed feeling that I used to get after washing my hair, so I needed to hunt for a new duo! I picked up the Charles Worthington Shine Booster Shampoo and Conditioner a few weeks ago after spotting it in a 3 for 2 offer in Boots and have been in love ever since.

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,…

I finished my 100 Day Spending Ban on the 12th May, you can read my final update here and having not broken the cycle of using up products from my stash I’ve accumulated a fresh new batch of empties. Bath and Body I picked up the Dove Go Fresh Body Wash in Nectarine and White Ginger a while ago…

    100 Day Spending Ban Week 14 Final Update First of all apologies that this update is up a little later than anticipated! Things have been rather hectic recently so I haven’t had a chance to post as often as I would’ve liked. However this is it, my final update on my 100 Day Spending Ban! So I finally made it to 100 days! My spending ban ended on Monday 12th May and I must say the challenge has definitely taught me a lot about my previous spending habits. Thinking about it now it’s quite possible that every trip to town would result in me buying something (no exaggeration).

    Big List of Hair Bow Tutorials | Written By: Miners Wife Big List of Hair Bow Tutorials I have known for a little over a month that the kids were going to be in the 4th of July parade and I was under the assumption that since uniforms don’t come in until practice – that they would be wearing their shirts (bows for cheer) from camp for it. The boy child did end up wearing his, but they asked the cheerleaders to wear red,white and blue and be festive. Well let’s be clear — I am no crazy sport fan mom, but no way am I letting my mini cheerleader go out without cheer hair,…

  • Five Steps to Recreate a Salon Pedicure at Home!

    Ella Pretty Blog
    22 Jul 2014 | 1:21 am
    I don't often go for a pedicure at a salon, but when I do, I always take notes. I like being able to recreate a salon pedicure at home - enjoying a pampering experience while using things I already own. Here are the five steps I take:1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 51) SOAK: Remove any existing polish. Fill a shallow tub with Epsom Salt, scented body wash and warm water. Soak your feet in the tub and flip through a magazine while the warm water softens your skin.1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 52) CUTICLE WORK:Rest one foot on the edge of the tub and apply cuticle remover to each toe. Massage it in and scrape the cuticle…

    Over the years, I've become more committed to protecting my skin from the sun. After years of beauty blogging and reading about the aging effects of sun damage, I've realized that sunscreen is not sufficient to truly shield my skin from the sun...I need physical protection too!These days I have no shame in wearing a large hat while outdoors. Yes, I felt self-conscious the first time - just like I felt conspicuous the first time I wore red lipstick. But I realized that it only looks odd if you feel uncomfortable - nobody else really cares, and now, it's become second nature.I've heard that the…

  • Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Oil

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:56 pm
    Now that summer is almost over, I am looking for a product that will keep my skin moist and supple and at the same time help it recover from those frequent trips to the beach. I found my solution with Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Oil ($58). The nice thing about this is that it contains facial grade ingredients incorporated into a luscious body oil. The result is a potent mix of vitamin C Ester, papaya enzymes and organic shea oil that moisturizes and brightens the skin.  For reference, I am 30 years old with oily-combination skin plus occasional dryness due to…

    by Murrielle When I received my bottle of Briogeo Curl Charisma Curl Defining Conditioner ($23 in the shop), I expected it might give my hair a little more shine, but I didn't anticipate anything more. But here's a happy surprise: my extremely fine, color-treated, shoulder-length wavy hair loves Curl Charisma! Being in my mid-fifties, my hair has become thinner, finer, brittle/breakage prone and looks quite limp without using a lot of styling product — until now. Upon first use, I was struck by Curl Charisma'srich, thick consistency and the lovely, light fragrance. Users are advised to…
  • Five Best Collagen Boosters 2014

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:16 pm
    There are three major components of our skin: collagen, elastin and Glycosaminoglycans. Collagen is by far the largest, with more than 80% (dry weight) of our skin being comprised of it. Collagen provides strength for the skin’s tissue while elastin allows skin to stretch and recoil. Collagen also protects structures by preventing absorption and spreading of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, micro-organisms and cancerous cells. Reduced collagen means wrinkles. Collagen protein is the glue that holds everything together. So it isn’t surprising that, as we age, a…
  • Snowberry Nourishing Exfoliator

    21 Jul 2014 | 7:23 am
    by Melissa I’m a sucker for a good exfoliator, so I have to admit I was excited for the opportunity to review the Snowberry Nourishing Exfoliator (NZ $51 or about $45 USD). I am in my mid-30s, live in the South and have semi-acne prone skin that I typically exfoliate twice a week. The instructions for this product say to use it once a week, so my first thought was, “Wow, this must be some serious stuff!” Unfortunately, as far as exfoliating goes, it’s not. The “exfoliators” in this product are not the fine, obvious granules we may all be used to. The Mother…

I'm in my 40s, and after trying many bottles of eye makeup remover yet always waking up with leftover mascara rimming my eyes, I have now met my holy grail of makeup removers. And I only thought I was reviewing a facial cleanser. What a bonus! The Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser ($32 in the shop) is a wonderful find and a product that will now become a permanent part of my beauty arsenal. It is a light, mildly foaming cleanser that worked very well whether I used it simply with a washcloth or with my Ultra Clear Facial…

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    London–based makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury knows a thing or two about achieving the perfect glow, having spent her childhood on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza. Unsurprisingly, her go-to for getting the effortlessly sun-kissed look of her hometown locals: the right bronzer. “With a big natural brush, a well-matched product, and some subtle contouring, you can get a natural, gorgeous glow as if you’ve just returned from a long weekend in Ibiza,” says Tilbury. Because bronzer—though an essential for many of us—is tricky to master, we asked Tilbury to share her basic glow-getting…

  • Cover FX’s BB Gel Is Here, and it’s Unlike Anything You’ve Used Before!

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    Taken a cue from the Asian beauty market, the United States first hopped on the foundation alternative bandwagon a few years ago, when BB creams took over shelves. From there, we’ve witnessed as the market seemingly makes its way through the alphabet chronologically: after BBs (“beauty balm” or “blemish balm”) came CCs (“color correction” or “color control”), and then, naturally, DDs (“daily defense”). But Cover FX did things a little differently. Because the brand specializes in correcting and covering imperfections, it kicked things off with a CC Cream, which launched…

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.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks so far and here are my thoughts. Read more >>Copyright (c) 2008-2012 www.TheSkinandBeautyBlog.com

  • Laneige BB Cushion Light Review and Swatches

    22 Jul 2014 | 8:12 pm
    Laneige BB Cushion is an innovative 5-in-1 product from one of Korea's most popular skincare lines. Target recently started carrying a large portion of the line (which is a sister line to the expensive Amore Pacific products you can find at Sephora) and I was so excited because it's hard to find Korean brands here in the U.S.  It costs $34 at Target, so it's not cheap, but it's unlike anything else you can buy in this country at the moment, so I had to try it out!BB Cushion claims to do 5 things- Brighten, Protect against UVA/UVB with SPF 50+, Cools and Refreshes, Prevents Shine, and…
  • Maybelline Great Lash Doll Mania Mascara Review

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Maybelline Great Lash Doll Mania ($5.49) is a new version of the iconic Great Lash mascara and is supposed to give a wide-eyed doll look to the lashes.Maybe it's just me, but I never understood all the craziness with the original Great Lash. It's been around pretty much my entire life and it still gets mentioned regularly in beauty magazines as one of the greatest mascaras of all time. I mean, it's a good mascara but I was never able to get the same effect with it that I have with so many others (Maybelline's Illegal Length gave me much longer, lusher lashes to name one from the same…

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:32 pm
    Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner ($24) is a new long-wearing gel eyeliner that's been getting a lot of attention lately.  It's a totally new concept, since they've found a way to get a gel eyeliner into an easy-to-use pen format, rather than the standard pot and brush which can be a pain and not very portable.  I planned on purchasing this to see what all the hype was about, but then I ended up getting a deluxe sample free with a $25 Sephora order!  It's exactly the same, just smaller, so I was really able to test this out and it'll last me quite a while.This liner is…

This month's theme is Sensationally Sunkissed and I got a good variety of different products.July's bag is hot pink with scalloped edges. The first product I got is Befine Food Skin Care Daily Moisturizer with SPF 1.5 oz. ($24 for 1.7 oz.).  This was almost full size and at first I thought it was body lotion due to the larger sample tube (usually face samples are much smaller). Then I read about it online and found that it's actually  face moisturizer featuring Rosemary and Pomegranate extracts as well as…

I've been a huge fan of their Sugar Lip Treatment balms for years and then last fall, I bought the original Sugar Shine Treatment. The original Shine Treatment is clear and I've been waiting for Fresh to add some colors for a while. I was so excited to see these come out, I bought two of them..Rose (my favorite shade in the Sugar Balm!) and Honey. The third shade, Cherry is red but I'm not a fan of dark lip colors.Left to right- Original (Clear), Honey and RoseOriginal (Clear),…

    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…

    Growing up in New England I was pretty traditional in my color choices. Lots of navy, red, white, khaki and a whole lot of black.  Black was my color pick of every occasion, it is classic and never goes out of style.  It worked with my personality and always made me feel comfortable.  It wasn’t exciting but it worked.  As I edged out of my twenties and into my thirties I found a friend was pushed my no color boundaries and suddenly I found myself grabbing yellows, greens and aqua, even light pink to wear on a daily basis.  Honestly, it was scary but also a tiny bit freeing.  As…

    This weekend was what you would call laid back in our household.  There was time for the gym, reading books, some time at church and the pool.  I feel like balance can be hard, even in the summer, when you have a family with a few kids.  The older they get the busier we get as a family and as they create their own individual lives.  I love it, but it can get crazy.  Nights out with H seem more necessary now than they did when the girls were wee ones who couldn’t talk quite so much. Heh.  I love it but time together is precious and I revel in each little moment.  Spending it with…

    Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt £19/$19Very unlike me to get excited about an exfoliating mitt, yet here I am typing that this exfoliating mitt is ridiculously amazing, so amazing I'm actually writing a blog post about it, that's how amazing! 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…

I still completely stand by that review and I realised I never write about bronzers because I always use the same two: the one I already blogged about 2 years ago and this Guerlain 4 Seasons Terracotta Bronzer.I am crazy about the 4 Seasons, they match perfectly for all skin colours and look so natural on everyone.

I've blogged about so many LRP products (like the best Miceller Water Cleanser and the BEST SPF 50 Tinted Moisturiser) because I truly believe in, love and use their products all the time.

That means no dirty pencil sharpeners messing up and ruining yet another clean makeup bag with black bits of kohl everywhere. Total win! Love these.

    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.

    Have you heard of FUE Hair Transplant for hair loss? Hair loss can be quite frustrating. For most men, it is a huge matter of concern to suddenly see bald spots and thinning hairlines. Usually, men don’t consider hair transplant as the primary solution for hair loss. Most would first try natural remedies before going for something this extreme. Unfortunately, when you’ve tried everything, but nothing still works, hair transplant is your best and most reliable option.

    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…

There’s no parabens, petroleum, GMOs, gluten free, and there’s only a whisper of fragrance, which is great for all us women who sneeze at scent. The shower and soak soap is beautified with oils of olive, palm, coconut, babassu and passiflora. It made my shower feel more like a spa.

Check it out: Vanilla contains compounds called vanilloids that are similar to capsaicin (the hot part of hot peppers), which has been used throughout history as an anti-inflammatory and cognitive…

    Did you know July 28th marks World Hepatitis Day? It is in fact one of only 4 officially recognised health days. Viral Hepatitis is the world’s eighth biggest killer with over 1.5 million people dying every year from it – that is equal to the amount of people killed by HIV/AIDS yet it gets much less publicity. There are five different types of virus that come under the Hepatitis umbrella, each one causes inflammation of the liver but can be caught and is treated in a different way, many of them can be easily prevented, through awareness, care and the passing on of knowledge.

    Everyone loves a good messy side braid, but most ladies who style their hair into the plait know that it takes just the right combination of precision and messiness to look perfect. Sure, girls with messy side braids may look like they just threw their hair into the style, but we know they put some effort into the look. Between technique, product, and luck, it takes just a little bit of practice, but when you get it right, this braid can’t be beat. For some professional advice on the messy side braid, we turned to Sally Hershberger hairstylist Edgar Parra. Take a look at the tutorial…

  • 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.

    We all make New Year’s resolutions but with everything else that goes on at the start of the year, they’re often hard to keep! 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…

    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…

But what everyone’s been talking about is whether they will price match with the US and will we get the complete range of makeup products. Yesterday’s Australian Financial Review article confirmed part of the pricing situation. Sephora will be “matching US prices, rather than local prices, for brands new to the Australian market”. While the jury is still out as to which brands will fall into the “new” category, it’s safe to assume that Sephora’s own makeup line will be included. This…

And what makes her so attractive?   Let’s start with looks: heroines may be ravishingly beautiful, but villainesses are undeniably hot. And not necessarily in some inborn perfection or spending-hours-in-the-gym-working-on-their-bikini-body way.

Sometimes, it’s totally work-related – there’s a long list of makeup artist essentials that aren’t (officially) available in the United States.

  • Pretty Casual Using Too Faced Chocolate Bar Makeup Tutorial

    28 Feb 2014 | 10:10 pm
    I have another tasty makeup tutorial using Too Faced Chocolate Bar for you. The inspiration came from the very pretty eyeshadows, Candied Violet and Black Forest Truffle themselves. 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…

I've spent some time trying the palette, coming up with makeup tutorials in hopes to bring you not only a review with swatches but also the pros and cons of the product's versatility, packaging, as well as the quality of the eyeshadows.Chocolate Bar comes in a box with a design that's somewhat similar to that of a chocolate bar wrapping except it's cuter, looks and feels more lux.Back of the box shows all the eyeshadows…

I drum these looks either the night before or 5-10 minutes before I put on makeup. For this particular look, I only had one specific goal which was to use all the colors that are visibly more purple/red in the palette and my Dark Plum neutral look resulted. :)Eyeshadows used for this look:- Too Faced Chocolate Bar- MAC Charcoal Eyeshadow  Step 1After primer, apply Strawberry Bon Bon (light matte pink) all over lids including just under your…

  • The Best Ways to Air Dry Hair

    Ashley
    17 Jul 2014 | 11:56 am
    The experts at Mèche Salon agree that one of the best ways to keep hair healthy and frizz-free is avoiding hot tools.  Mèche Salon‘s highly sought-after stylists have given us their best tips for going tool-free and embracing air dried hair. From Guy Riggio: The Deva Towel works well for getting excess moisture out. For girls with coarse curly hair, I recommend applying Oribe Super Shine Moisturizing Cream because it’s thick and rich.

Being in the summer sun has me craving pretty toes and fingernails!  Do you get that way too?

Endless GIFs that give me a headache.  Why must there be one with every point?  (Not to mention the frustration on the flip side where you can’t see any images because you don’t have the correct plug in on your browser.) 2. Always trying to guess how the GIFs relate to the point.  Some are stretching it a bit much! 3. There is always one thing on the list that’s slightly off color which makes me hesitate sharing. 4.  Boobs 5.  One arbitrary number always boasts it will “blow your mind” and…

    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.

    17 Jun 2014 | 7:35 pm
    If there’s one brush that confuses women more than any other, it would be the fan brush. They’re always included in brush sets, yet almost always go unused. While it did take me some time to warm up to them, I now find myself reaching for fan brushes quite a bit. Check out my favorite and finally discover how to use the fan brush: Contouring The fan brush is a great tool to use when you want to subtlety contour your cheekbones. When you turn it to the side, the bristles of the brush lay perfectly inside the hollows of your cheek. With a powder contour on your brush, flick…

    A Hint Of Sunlight

  • Travel Log: Kawasan Falls, Cebu

    9 Jul 2014 | 9:16 pm
    As I am writing this, the sky is so gloomy outside, it looks like it just watched a really sad soap opera. I'm pretty sure it's going to rain this afternoon too.There's just nothing that makes me miss summer more than a cold weather and heavy rain. And I think I had the longest ever string of get-aways for this year's summer. One of the firsts was during March, when my sister and I decided to explore parts of Cebu that we haven't explored yet. It was actually a three-day trip. Our first day was spent within the city and I may, or may not blog about as it's all city-ish stuff. The second day…

  • Beyond Enchanted

    25 Jun 2014 | 11:12 am
    I don't mean to bash or anything. But I think the Enchanted River is the most overrated and over-hyped summer destination this year. And the crowd really kills part of the whole enchanted-ness thing. I do understand why people can't help but flock to the place though. It's quite photogenic and social media did its magic.I did the hyping thing last year too, wrote all about it in this post. And hurrah, not, we went back again this summer...but even the hinatuan crabs that I love so much were in short supply.  But like I said, I'm not here to bash.

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

Behaviorists have extensively researched the effect of selfies on plastic surgery, and have found that selfies may be leading to a rise in plastic surgery.

              It starts with one procedure- maybe a tummy tuck, or a rhinoplasty. Afterwards you think, hmmm...well that went well... maybe I should get a chin implant and a butt augmentation? Then 10 procedures later, your eyes are directly below your hairline and your protruding lips enter a room before you do. So we must always ask ourselves-when is just one more, to much? It's not uncommon for people to have two or three surgeries done at once. As a matter of fact, it's often recommended. For example, a patient that wants liposuction and a Brazilian Butt lift, saves…

    Being an athlete is tough stuff! Think about it- the falls, the jabs, the breaks, the tackling, the crushing...the list goes on. It's no wonder athletes are now seeking help from plastic surgeons to fix flaws acquired while playing sports.  From rhinoplasty for a broken nose to dental work from bashed teeth, athletes require cosmetic procedures as frequently as those working in other professions. Recently, Jean Segura, the shortstop for the Milwaukee Brewers, was accidentally hit in the face with a baseball bat during a match against the Chicago Cubs. According to Sports…

    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.

    For full 7 months, I had to take medications for the severe headache I was suffering from. That terrible headache was just one symptom to postpartum depression, which started after I gave birth to my son. Medications, loss of appetite and breast-feeding, all contributed to losing nearly 50% of my hair! It was scary to watch handfuls of my hair falling, and as it was thinning, I was sinking more and more in depression. I used to think, “Am I the only one in this world losing my hair? Could it be possible to recover from this?” In an attempt to help grow my hair, I cut it many…

    How many people do you know wear contact lenses to correct blurry vision? Chances are, you can probably name at least a handful—you may even be one of them. When it comes to correcting blurry vision, the alternative to spending a lifetime fumbling with contacts is LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), otherwise known as laser eye surgery. Recent studies have shown that, thanks to technological advances in the area of eye health, LASIK is now an equally effective tool for improving blurry vision caused by both nearsightedness and farsightedness.

  • Rice cooker pancakes!

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

I did a couple of quick searches of the product and just about all of it was positive, which is always a good sign. I knew it was a mask but i was expecting something much smoother. To my surprise (and lack of research..), this is actually a clay mask. So yes, it's supposed to look a bit questionable in the pot haha.The website does say it's good for all skin types, and the products are botanically based. What…

  • NOTD: Gingham Nails

    La Vie En May
    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…
  • Product Review: Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    La Vie En May
    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…

  • Bye Bye Bikini. Monokini is the 2014 Summer Trend

    La Vie En May

    After a long and almost endless winter, summer has arrived: bright sun, warm days, time for refreshing fruit salads, ice-cream and crisp cocktails.When it comes to fashion, summer is above all other things the swimsuit season - one of the most beautiful and frightening times for all of us!  After months of hibernating in layers (and perhaps too many hot chocolates?) we now have to shed our clothes and face the “swimsuit challenge”.Back in the day the choice seems to have been far simpler: string triangle top and matching bikini bottom with ribbon side ties. Bikini, always.Over the…

    As a petite girl (I'm 4'11"), it's hard to find clothes that fit me. The length is always an issue, but sometimes, the width can be bothersome as well. I always find myself in a huge predicament: Should I buy it over-sized and tailor it or should I wait until I find the perfect one? It wouldn't be so hard of a choice if I could tailor everything myself or if I could find a tailor easily, but that's not the case. I haven't been able to find one in my area for a year and a half now!In comes eShakti, a women's fashion website that is built for customization. What exactly can you customize?

  • Nail Polish Color Associations and a Shopping Guide!

    Angie
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:11 am
    In the past, I wrote a post and made an infographic all about color associations (color therapy, chromotherapy) and nail polish colors. 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,…
  • 7 of the Most Beautiful and Fascinating Women in the World

    You know those “Most Beautiful/Fascinating People” lists in magazines? Well here’s mine, not in any particular order! These women have a beauty that shines out from the inside as well, and that’s even more beautiful! Erykah Badu A musical goddess. She’s always fascinated me! I love her independent stance on politics (you can admire some’s independent thinking, and not entirely agree with them), and her views on spirituality: “Personally, I don’t choose any particular religion or symbol or group of words or teachings to define me. That’s between me…
  • Selfies Aren’t Selfish: Busted Misconceptions About Them and Why Selfies are Good

    Angie
    7 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Selfies really aren’t a new phenomenon. Famous painters used to sit for hours and paint themselves, and one of the first photos ever taken of a human was a selfie. 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. There are way too many people telling you how you should present…
  • Adopted a Kitty and her Adopted Kittens

    Angie
    3 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Animals are so precious. Don’t they seem like they’re better than humans sometimes quite often? A female animal will take over the nursing of another animal, even from a different species. You’ve heard of mother cats adopting baby bunnies, or a female golden retriever adopting a kitten? It’s just so stinking cute, and they do it out of sheer motherly instinct. The desire to take care of a little one is universal. We adopted Zoey a few weeks ago. She was a stray that was hanging around the place where my husband often goes while he’s driving his truck. She ran up…

    #bellafit brings us 3 stability ball exercises to strengthen your core (aka – abs or abdomen muscles). A workout with a stability ball is one of my favorite workouts. Maybe because you think of games with balls, like basketball or kickball.

Plus, if you are prone to backaches, because your posture is not so great, core exercises are essential. These stability ball exercises are designed for beginners. There is so much you can do to make them harder,…

We’ve celebrated Memorial Day and July 4th which both involve cookouts, food, and great desserts.

    It’s no fun when people talk about your makeup behind your back–whether it is a just bad makeup job or having clown-like makeup. Applying makeup is never easy for the novice, but whatever you do, just remember – Less is More Learning how to apply makeup the right way takes practice, just like any thing. Sometimes people will forget this and think their makeup looks really great. In reality, their makeup looks terrible. This may be why most women struggle with applying makeup. It can end up  looking too heavy, too thick, the wrong colors or even worse, older. Some typical…
