  • Keri Plays With Color

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

  • How to Achieve Lucy Hale's Enviable Eyelashes

    Emily-Orofino

    There's no doubt about it - Lucy Hale is gorgeous. And while it's hard not to be obsessed over her eyebrows or jealous of her thick, glossy mane, we're focused on another great beauty asset. Lucy's always had amazing eyelashes, but they were especially bold for her iHeartRadio Theater performance. After close inspection, we've decided that there were no falsies involved - just good genes and greater mascara. You can easily get a similarly dramatic lash look this weekend with a lash-extension mascara set - we like Too Faced Better Than False Lashes ($35). These special formulas use lots of…

But as beauty editors, we had a singular focus: the hair and makeup, of course. Although "singular" isn't quite the right word, because her persona changes every five seconds! Makeup artist Jake Bailey was tasked with creating 10 looks on shoot day. He even bleached Katy's eyebrows to create a blank canvas.

One coat yields almost perfect coverage, but two make it completely opaque. This is definitely one of those colors that make me want to keep staring at my nails over and over (and over).

    It's a strong statement to call a nail polish color shocking, I know, but I think it definitely applies to the neon chartreuse shade Jennifer Lopez showed off on Instagram last night. Wow! These ultra-summery nails have me counting the hours until it's socially acceptable for me to have a frozen margarita with extra salt on the rim (3 p.m.?). Sadly for any of you who feel you could rock chartreuse as hard as J.Lo is here, this color was custom-mixed by celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik. But maybe bring it to the store and use it as weekend-mani inspiration while shopping for a similar shade!

You see, I had a beach day coming up and I wanted the contouring.

    {pot of island breeze}anecdote:  my husband and i recently met a woman who smelled divine.  i could hardly pay attention to what she saying because her scent mentally transported me to an island; like an evening breeze of fragrant blooms.  i asked my husband if he noticed and he immediately replied, "i didn't want to sound weird, but yeah she smells really good."  that's actually a glowing fragrance review from him.  upon our next meeting i had to ask her, "what perfume do you wear?".  she replied, "oh, that's not my perfume, it's lush's r+b hair moisturizer."i…

    {eyluring}british lash company, eylure, has a rich history (they've been creating fake lashes for half a century).  with that sort of legacy comes an understanding of how the product, and it's market, works.  eylure offers a huge variety of lashes, divided into categories similar to the mascara market - naturals, lengthening, volume, texture, definition...plus the more extreme categories that can only come from falsies, like exaggerate, dramatic, party, and festival.  there is truly a lashes for every occasion!  texture is my favorite because it introduces lashes that look…

    Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller is a retake on the Garnier Anti-Dark Circles Tinted Eye Roller. Apparently this is newly formulated with a BB Cream formula that corrects dark circles, awakens skin, evens skin tone, hydrates, and minimizes puffiness. The new Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller is also a new smaller size at 8ML versus the older 15ML roller. I believe the price is a little cheaper too as this is $13.99 and I believe the old version was $14 or $15.99. Let’s take a look!

    I'm still amused when I remember how much I loathed Zagorsk for the first three or four samples (yes, I went through at least 5mls of this Comme des Garcons perfume until I managed to wrap my head around it). I can't justify the dislike any more than I can explain why I kept trying it until I saw the light, but it's been years ago and I've been wearing Zagorsk happily and regularly, so I thought it's time to revisit it here.When I wear Zagorsk nowadays I get a sense of comfort and tranquility, just as I do with some other incense perfumes.

I'm already a fan of NARS Larger Than Life pencils which I have in most colors, and the new eyeliners add another dimension to the intense colors and smooth gliding texture: micro-pearls.The effect of NARS Night Series eyeliners is less dramatic on the lids/lashline.

Fragonerds today often feel equal amounts of curiosity, skepticism, and  "whatever" when told about new brands.

It’s fun to try on a different hat sometimes. When the Laqa & Co.

    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.

Simplicity at its best with plain plastic packaging, the vanilla scent that seasoned beauty lovers have come to associate with lip gloss that this formula has as well is lightly comforting.

    L’Oreal Punchy Lychee and Rimmel BritPop I Bought This|Press Sample This bright dotticure was inspired by the little girls who live on my street. A couple of them like to pop by when the boyfriend and I are dining on our deck and they’ve become fascinated with my nail polish room and constantly changing manicures. In fact, one held her arms out wide and declared, “Your obsession is this big,” when looking into my office. She’s totally right, ha! Anyway, last night they came over and I invited them in to see all the Helmer drawers of color, swatch wheels and…

    OPI Mustang Affiliate Link|Press Sample I grew up spending many a night in car lots with my parents on our way home from eating out. My dad loved wandering through the rows of cars, with no pressure from salesmen, to check out the latest releases. And even though he has to own a van for work, the man loves American muscle cars. He used to fix up and drag race them before I was born. I guess it’s no surprise that my first serious boyfriend was also into muscle cars, specifically the Ford Mustang (he owned a ’87 Fastback). Thanks to him and my dad, I know way more about the car…

    Louboutin Rouge Nail Polish and Mine Lacquer Affiliate Link I heard rumblings a while back about a Christian Louboutin nail polish and considering the popularity of the Louboutin Manicure back in 2007, I’m amazed it didn’t happen earlier. Well, last week the news finally broke of the Christian Louboutin Beauté brand and its first signature nail color, Christian Louboutin Rouge Louboutin, with its hefty $50 price tag. At $50, Rouge Louboutin, with its claim of superior pigmentation and hand crafted bottles, certainly isn’t the most expensive luxury lacquer we’ve seen.

They’re probably my favorite makeup item to buy as I appreciate when brands take the guesswork out of creating a great eye look. The new Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette is an excellent example. Bringing together six silky shadows and three wet/dry shadows that can be used as liners, Too Faced combined three of my fave eye shades, purple, brown and navy, with mint and jet black to create one extremely versatile palette. In this week’s Makeup Wars, we are taking…

    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…

Whether a scar inhibits your follicle growth, you overplucked for years and your pencil thin brows won’t recover, or you’re just suffering from a common case of patchy brows, an eyebrow transplant may be your solution. The procedure, which must be done by a board certified physician, can give women (and men!) some serious eyebrow game --...

    18 Jul 2014 | 5:29 am
    A little black dress on a warm summer day? Sure! Why not? Give your LBD a fresh look for summer by adding some color! Work a fresh look with a pop of color on your jewelry! Just a dab will do your look a ton of good! In this look, I styled a Coe & Co. silver and red beaded bangle and matching earrings.  I layered the Coe & Co. pieces with silver jewelry I already own. The bangle is a bit big on me so I wear it higher on my forearm, which I think is a cool layering technique! It provides visual interest (see top picture). I love this outfit because instead of heels or sandals, I chose…

    Pattie Rechtman
    1 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Welcome to August’s first edition of the PurseForum Roundup, in which we gather some of the week’s most interesting discussions and most beautiful bags and bring them right over here to share with you. This week, we visited Alexander Wang, where statement hardware is always in fashion, and we also dropped into Hermès, where we found some reveals, of course, and also point you toward help in the pre-loved bag department. Last week we made but a brief stop in Alexander Wang and shared some mesh bags with you all. This week, we went back for a more in-depth visit. We found a…
  • Taylor Swift Does Her Daily NYC Rounds with a Bulgari Bag

    Emily Anderson
    1 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Here’s Ms. Taylor Swift, taking her daily constitutional around the isle of Manhattan, carrying a sky blue Bulgari Isabella Rossellini Bag and wearing metallic Louboutins. Pricey handbag/cute dress/towering pumps is now T-Swift’s daily uniform. (I haven’t seen this girl in a pair of pants in at least two months.) You can find Taylor’s bag in burgundy red palmellato calf leather for $3,150 at Bulgari. This is actually the second Bulgari bag we’ve written about in a week’s time (we recently saw Maggie Gyllenhaal carrying a Bulgari Serpenti Bag), which would…

  • Your Nails Have to Make the Fall Transition Too, You Know

    Amanda Mull
    1 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    There’s been some noticeable crispness in the morning air lately, and now that the calendar has turned to August, we can no longer avoid the fact that fall is coming at us. While it’s too warm during the days for fall clothes, there are little ways that you can start your seasonal transition without producing any excess sweat; one of the best is with a new nail polish. Below, we’ve selected a number of shades that are still colorful enough to be summer-appropriate but dark enough to feel like the first element of your personal, sartorial transition into the coming season.
  • Irina Shayk Texts While Crossing the Street, Endangering Her Givenchy Bag

    Emily Anderson
    31 Jul 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Here’s supermodel Irina Shayk, crossing the street in the West Village while engrossed in her phone. She’s carrying a beautiful Givenchy Pandora Box Bag, which is (you guessed it) an even boxier, more structured take on the popular Pandora bag. You can find this extremely tempting new Givenchy design for $1,650 at Barneys. We just saw Irina in the city last month with a bright blue Hermes Birkin. A simple maxi dress or skirt accented with a conspicuously high-end bag seems to be her go-to look for summer 2014. Irina doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags”…

  • What Is the Big Deal With Wearing Makeup?

    Maria Palma
    30 Jul 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Makeup can enhance our natural beauty, but why do we insist that someone would "look better" if they wore makeup?I was catching up on my beauty and fashion reading today, and came across Leandra Medine's post (aka "The Man Repeller") titled "Why I Don't Wear Makeup". It made me think about my own reasons for wearing makeup and women's dependence on it as a way to make them feel good about themselves. There was a time that posting a picture of myself online sans makeup was not an option, but I think when you get older you tend to say, "F**k it, I…

    We should take a page out of the cat's playbook.A day of relaxation on a regular basis is good for the mind, body, and soul.I remember Sundays as a young girl. I would play outside with the neighborhood kids, read a book, or listen to the radio and practice drill team dance moves. Sundays were a day with no agenda. You did whatever the day gave you. It was a day off school and that's all that mattered.Read more »

      If you have curly or wavy hair and have never used a diffuser to dry your hair, this is the perfect time to start. Miss Jessie's makers of some of my favorite curly girl products, has created their very first hair appliance to quickly dry curly hair and create frizz free, defined curls/waves.  Miss Jessie's Original DeFrizz Blow Dry Diffuser will also work on wavy/straight/relaxed hair when you want more of a textured rather that straighter look from your blow out. Before I get into how it performed, please note there is something you must know about…

Both lash types come in boxes with a clear plastic tray for easy display. They are reusable and come with a lash adhesive (on the back of the box) which goes on iridescent but dries totally clear. It’s a latex-free adhesive, so no worries for those who have a latex allergy. The Partial Lashes also show you before and after photos on the back of the box.

But you see, I haven’t had hair past my shoulders in 20 years, so I am really curious to see how long I can get it, and also what it will look like now. In order for me to NOT cut it again I needed to do something interesting. Awhile back I was thinking about doing a pale pastel pink but then I decided nah, I want lavender! So I had it done yesterday and I really like it! They used a Special Effects silver shade with a…

    I am only going to say this once. LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Goddess is a shade YOU NEED! I’ve reviewed a few of these lipsticks here and here, but this one, THIS ONE is my favorite by far. This shade wasn’t even on my radar until I was watching a video from Young Wild and Polished and she showed it. I nearly fell over I loved it so much. It is the absolute perfect shade of mauve. I had actually been on the hunt for this one for awhile because every time I made it to an Ulta, they were sold out of this one. So it must be one of the more popular shades! Goddess ($16) Goddess…

(It’s a long story, follow the link above and you’ll see what I mean.) By now we know that the law DID pass which hopefully means we’ll see these “superior” European ingredients on the U.S. market soon. But wouldn’t it be awesome if you could get some of these European ingredients right now? Well you can, sort of.

Then tell your representative to vote for the the Sunscreen Innovation Act.  According to the EWG, we need more, safer sunscreen options and the FDA should move faster to approve chemical sunscreens. On the flip side the FDA says something like “Hold it – we can’t approve these ingredients yet because we need more safety data.” Let me get this straight: the EWG is arguing that we should expose people to chemicals that haven’t…

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

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

    It’s no secret that Tea Tree Oil is fantastic for clearing breakouts but most people don’t realize the versatility of this essential oil. One little bottle of this oil will assist with home cleaning chores, refreshen the air, and provide health benefits such as clearing chest congestion, zapping allergies, and boosting your immune system.

    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…
  • My thoughts on two different gel polishes

    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…

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

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

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

  • Cbeebies Land at Alton Towers Visit and Review!

    Row
    31 Jul 2014 | 6:06 am
    Baby H is a big fan of CBeebies – it’s a ritual, all the little ones in my family have grown up on the fairly educational channel as opposed to Disney (urgh) or Nickeloden (sit down, Dora).  When I saw the adverts for CBeebies Land at Alton Towers, I got VERY excited.  I have been going to Alton Towers since I was a little girl (Who remembers Henrietta Hound, the mascot!?) and it’s always nice to go.  I knew that H would enjoy meeting some of his favourite characters, and with the current sunny weather, it seemed to be a good time to visit.   CBeebies land has only been open for…

    DHC is one of those staple Japanese brands that is understated but reliable once you get into into the range.  They are known mainly for skincare but they also have a range of cosmetics (I love their foundation) and recently I tested a few of their Premium Lipstick GE range.    The Premium Lipstick GE collection consists of 6 shades and has anti-ageing properties.  It contains vitamin A, macadamia nut oil, olive oil, rice bran oil,l collagen and more to hydrate the lips.  Here are the 4 pretty colours I have.  They come in box packaging with the rose design.   The lipsticks come in…
  • Lovely Baby Skincare: Weleda Baby Derma White Mallow Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • What is The Worst Skin Care Line? Renée Rouleau Shares Her Thoughts

    Renée Rouleau
    31 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    As a skin care expert, celebrity esthetician and someone who studies skin care ingredients and formulations extensively for my own collection of products, I’m often asked “Which skin care line do you think is the worst?” Truth be told, there is no bad skin care line, nor is there a perfect or best skin care line, not even my own.  The reason for this is simply because every persons’ skin is unique due to genetics, lifestyle, climate and hormones and because of this, will respond differently to whatever is used on it. Differentiations within each type of skin include:…

  • 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…

    A near-white sparkle, not quite metallic but almost. Fully opaque, and just barely greyed - using this gets me my inner-vee and browbone highlights without looking quite so abrupt or over-the-top.

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

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

After over 25 years of not doing anything at all to my hair - I have what is called "virgin hair" in hairstylist/hair-fanatic parlance, I finally attempted to curl and style my own hair, all by my lonesome self! And guess what - I came out totally unscathed! I mean, I didn't even have a burn mark on my neck or anything!

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

Brands’ cruelty free statuses change all the time (so check this cruelty free beauty list for current updates). But I wanted to mention some of the brands that I avoid and it makes me sad. Some of them test on animals outright, but many do it because they want to sell in countries that REQUIRE animal testing (like China). They usually say things about testing, “only when required by law.” This is a PR spin, because basically, no one is forcing them to sell…

Even though she’s always cast in movies as the ditzy bleached blonde, she’s the rare celebrity who charms women just as much as men.

    10In following the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Series skincare regimen, the Racinne Ultimate Aqua Blanc Brightening Masque was to be used twice a week. Despite sheet masks being all the rage in Korea, this particular masque to my delight, is of the tubed variety. Perhaps it's not just me, but sometimes I just don't feel like my skin absorbs product from sheet masks very well. I digress!

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

If it’s covered with grodiness, look for a leaf or something to cover your hand first. (I live near a populated beach area; I know of what I speak.) This move is cool on so many levels it’s hard to count. It communicates that you give a rat’s behind about keeping our fair Earth nice. It demonstrates dignity and a community consciousness.

        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.

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…

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. But after being introduced to U by Kotex with 3D Capture Core, I've quickly realized you don't have to avoid splurging as long as you've got the right protection. No leaks, no worries,…
  • MIKA'S MANE TIPS

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

    14 Jul 2014 | 1:02 pm
    Image via Ah, summer — as much as I hate to admit it, my routine is always a bit more difficult to master during this time of year. In the winter months, I can lather, exfoliate and hydrate with the best of them, but once the warmer temperatures arrive, the 'natural look' is simply more time consuming for me. And it's no wonder — with humid days, hotter nights and an on-the-go schedule, it can be difficult to keep a look intact. After a full on meltdown this past weekend (literally, my makeup melted away completely) i've decided to get back to these essential tricks:Opt for cream-based…
  • THE LAUNCH OF BEAUTY CHAT

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

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

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

If you don’t know about the Guerlain Super Aqua-Serum moisturizer line, the first few words seem to come from the anime genre. If you do know about the line, you’ll immediate connect this product with a premier way to get incredible, effective hydration that gives the skin glow without the slightest hint of heaviness.

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…

    It seems that every Fall, there are a handful of items that insiders identify quickly as the must-haves of the season. These have extraordinary quality, universal appeal, and are typically limited edition. Yves Saint Laurent’s Couture Leather Fetiche (Leather Fetish) 5-color eyeshadow palette ($60) is one of those items for Fall 2014. As I write this, the palette is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Yves Saint Laurent online, and Neiman Marcus. I had ordered mine from  Saks Fifth Avenue, but it appears to have sold out there.

    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…

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…

She’s one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and I can’t help but admire all the different ways she wears her hair, because her styles always look chic and glamorous. Take these beachy-tousled waves, for example. To the untrained eye, it seems like Mila just rolled out of bed looking like this, and it’s a great carefree look for summer. In reality, I’m sure it took at least a little work to look this effortless. Even if we haven’t been blessed with a flowing, perfectly-disheveled mane…

    During the summer, one of the most coveted looks is that laid-back, chic-surfer stye. But often there’s one thing that’s missing from this oft-recommended ensemble: the perfect scent. Sure, salt water sprays will give you a hint of an ocean aroma, and some body oils will add that wonderfully summery, sun lotion smell. But in terms of an actual perfume, one which you can carry with you day-to-night, Pinrose is the way to go.

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

I had dyed my hair at around the same time so wanted a treatment which would really lock in the colour and give it an extra moisture boost that I find hair needs after using dye. This mask is one which hits the brief entirely and here’s why!

  • Michael Todd True Organics Liposome Antiox Moisturizer

    1 Aug 2014 | 1:05 pm
    I have used and been impressed with several Michael Todd products, and I was thrilled to be chosen to review the Michael Todd Liposome Antiox Moisturizer ($29). I really like that Michael Todd products are mostly organic, and I appreciate the clear labeling that some products are vegan and/or gluten free. I also love that they have never tested their products on animals. The sample I received was a full-sized product and was well-packaged. I first paid attention to the packaging — it is in a pump type container. While I was happy that it was not a jar (as that type of packaging can be…
  • Yes to Blueberries Line Reducing Lip Treatment

    by Connie I am in my 70s and my skin is dry. I used Yes to Blueberries Line Reducing Lip Treatment ($7.99) as instructed every day. I found that the product was very easy to apply, and I loved the size of the tube, which was easy to hold. The product itself was soft and smooth going onto the area around my mouth and on my lips. Did I see any difference? Every day, I looked at myself in the mirror as I applied the Yes to Blueberries Line Reducing Lip Treatment. I couldn’t see any difference.

  • The Fight for Cruelty-Free Beauty

    31 Jul 2014 | 7:05 am
    When we were in college, my friends and I were very nearly obsessed with the store, Bath & Body Works. We all had our favorites among the wide range of fruity and floral fragrances, and would rush to their clearance sales to stock up on any beloved items that were being discontinued. Animal rights were important to us back then as well as now, and we were assured by the "not tested on animals" declaration on our bottles. That is, until we looked a little more closely. "This finished product is not tested on animals" was the actual wording, and it raised some red flags. Was this ambiguous…
  • Nine Sensitive Skin Dos and Don’ts

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:06 pm
    My name is Marta, and I suffer with sensitive skin. Actually, that used to be true. In fact, these days I rarely get flare-ups of any kind. But up until a few years ago, my skin was the dermatological equivalent of the Princess and the Pea. It had been like that since I was old enough to start wearing cheap makeup, and it eventually became a way of life. So, what changed? I developed my own “Nine-Step Program” of dos and don’ts for sensitive skin. Interestingly, you’ll note that I haven’t banned any specific ingredients (I don’t have particular allergies);…

  • Beauty Basics: How to Apply False Lashes

    1 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Have you ever spent hours in front of the mirror trying to apply fake eyelashes, only to end up with them sticking out at strange angles, or—worse—fall off completely after a few hours? Because falsies are tricky to master, we tapped Los Angeles–based makeup artist Gia Brascia to show us her tried-and-true application (and removal) tips. For the tutorial, we used Kevyn Aucoin The Lash Collection in Starlett.  1: Before you do anything else, measure the length of the lash to make sure it fits your eye shape. If the strip needs to be cut to fit, snip the outer edge completely off with…

  • 3 Cream Eyeshadows That Truly Don’t Budge, Even in the Heat

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    As someone who’s dead serious and totally uncompromising when it comes to her daily eyeshadow regimen, the summertime heat and humidity can be…challenging. By the end of the day, I found most shadows had separated, settled into my (numerous) creases, and smudged from sweat. Over the past few years, when July rolls around, I’ve thought about skipping shadow altogether—but that’s totally unacceptable. I always feel unfinished without a slip of color on my lids. It’s almost as bad as if I, god forbid, wandered out of the house without earrings. Or pants. So I became a connoisseur of…
  • Why Facial Oil Is a Good Thing for Every Skin Type

    28 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    My friend Michelle’s face was glowing. She was sitting across from me on her porch and in the sunlight, I saw that her pores looked tighter than usual, her skin smoother, and her complexion more dewy than I’d ever seen it. Staring at her like a person who has seen the Promised Land for the first time, I interrupted her mid-conversation to demand, “What have you been doing to your skin????” Michelle grinned. “Facial oils!” Of course. You can’t go online without some beauty writer telling you how some new facial oil is the holy grail of this or that. But I’m one of those who has…

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

  • There's Finally a Cure for Phobia of Shiny Eye Shadows

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

Or really, any day where I can sleep in past 10am. However, one of the few areas in life that I absolutely, positively need to follow a carefully regimented plan is skincare.

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

As I’ve written before, my skin is combination dry, loves brightening/ correcting products but mostly in good shape with some tendency for sensitivity. At night is when the “magic” happens, I cleanse, tone, moisturize to ensure I maintain and take care of my face/ neck. Mornings, in the same fashion, I have to put on a good moisturizer, ideally with spf of at least 30, this is a must. Vine Vera Resvetrarol…

    Summer is all about color. As much as I love a fully made up face, a pop of color on the lips can be ultra chic. I have been playing with some fun brands and colors, as usual I am going drugstore, indie and a bit high end to showcase some range and how closely similar they can be. The choice ultimately lies on finish from matte, semi matte, glossy, sheer AND how bold you want to go. On my face, I have CC cream and my brows are filled in, everything else is bare faced (for me anyway).

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

    1 Aug 2014 | 3:48 pm
    The other day I was browsing around at The Paper Store, a new gift shop that opened near my house (I believe there are locations all over New England). It's a great store because they have jewelry, cute boho clothes, home decor and of course, beauty products.

  • Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner Review

    31 Jul 2014 | 2:31 pm
    Ro's Argan Body Conditioner from Lush ($32.95) is a rinse-off body lotion, similar to a hair conditioner that you apply in the shower and then rinse off before you get out. What a fabulous idea...why didn't someone think of this before?! Or maybe they have but I've never seen it. I decided I had to try it, even though the price was a bit on the high side.My experience with Lush products is fairly limited since we only recently got a store in the mall near us. I remember ordering from their catalog back in the 90's. I got some bath bombs and a shampoo bar which left my hair feeling dirty so I…

I almost never go to Walmart so I just happened to spot them and grabbed a bunch. They were $2 a piece. I got 2 paper masks, Hydrating Blue Agave and Brightening Rose, a Charcoal and Black Sugar rinse-off mud mask, and a Honeydew and Chamomile sleeping mask.I plan to review them all separately since I only use a mask once or twice a week. I decided to try the Honeydew and Chamomile sleeping mask first. A…

    Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primers ($8, Walmart) have been around a while now and there are several different formulas that address different skin concerns, such as Shine-Free, Illuminating, and Color Correcting. I purchased the Perfecting formula, which is supposed to brighten and even out dull skin while diffusing redness, and the Dark Spot Correcting formula, that's supposed to diffuse the look of age spots, freckles and uneven skin tone for a brighter look. The Perfecting formula comes in a light pink tube and is supposed to even out the skin while filling in fine lines and wrinkles to…

    Yup, I’m totally one of those women who feels naked and just a bit wrong if I leave the house without lipstick.  Last week, by a series of unfortunate events I forgot all my make-up at home when I went to the gym.  After showering, I reached into my gym bag and there wasn’t even a lip balm to be found.  I was slightly horrified but then went about my day.  I survived but I kept touching my lips throughout the day missing the feel of a silky gloss, moisturizing balm or pigment-saturated pop of color. It’s summer and I’ve been busy with the life and I think I might…

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…

    Caudalie Divine Legs £26/$38I hate fake tan, hate them. I can't be bothered to do it myself but I hate the colour of a spray tan and the way it wears off in patches. I hate the smell, that I can't wear white, the way it wears off on my towels and sheets, the whole shebang. But, typically, I love looking tanned mostly because a tan makes my skin look even toned and covers my blue, pink and white hued legs.

With this incredible summer we're having in England I don't feel that my foundation or moisturiser with SPF30 included is enough, and that a targeted face sunscreen is a necessity for everyone every day.

We all know 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…

  • 5 Things You Should Know About Moisturizer

    Kimberly Yang
    1 Aug 2014 | 7:20 am
    Originally published as 5 Things You Should Know About Moisturizer from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. 1. Oily skin needs moisturizer, too. One of the most common mistakes acne-prone and oily skin types make is forgoing moisturizer under the misconception that they “don’t need it.” Remember: oiliness is not the same as being hydrated. When oily skin is stripped of natural moisture or isn’t being hydrated, sebaceous glands go into overdrive in an attempt to compensate. It’s the excess presence of pore-clogging oil that increases chances of breaking out. Keep skin balanced and…

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.

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.

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…

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

    *Note* – This is Soo Jin’s husband hi-jacking his wife’s blog to do a guest post Another decade passes by…3rd one to be exact. I know it’s just another notch to add to my belt, but I couldn’t help but reflect on the past 10 years of my life.  First off, I can’t even remember what I did for my 20th birthday and to think how long it feels since then…this gives me incredible joy knowing how much more time I have in this world to enjoy with my family and change it.  I have learned a great deal in these past 10 years.  I’ve learned just how…

    9 Sep 2013 | 7:50 am
    Hey Everyone! I mentioned back in April that I was on the hunt for a stylish diaper bag that doesn’t scream “I carry diapers!”.  Some other important factors were that it’s light-weight, functional (pockets and can carry crossbody) and affordable.  Well I searched high and low and all the baby bags that I liked never met the affordable criteria. Even though I wasn’t in love, I was pretty set on purchasing the MARC by MARC JACOBS Pretty Nylon Eliz-a-baby Diaper Bag in Black or Grey. It did take a while to justify the $298 price tag to Hubs.

    Hey everyone! Yup, I’m still very much pregnant today!  My midwife yesterday told me that I’ve made no progress over the past week so she’s expecting that I’ll go the full 40 weeks.  It was a bit disappointing to hear because we were so excited for the arrival of our little girl but I’m realizing that it’s easier for me to have the mentality that she’s never going to come versus she’s going to come any minute now! How far along? 39 weeks now – 6 days to go until her official due date, September 10th! Size of baby? 20 inches – a…

    ANY. DAY. NOW.   On Wednesday I had my 38 week appointment with my midwife and I asked if she had to guess when she’d expect baby to arrive by.  Her response?  Within a week!!!   Hubs and I are now on high alert and are super excited and anxious for our little one. I’ve heard that the last month of pregnancy is the hardest because of the waiting and anticipation (especially for first time mamas) and I have to say that I agree.  Every little feeling I get I wonder if it’s the beginning of labor.  Also, it’s getting harder and harder to sleep at night and I’m…

      My Notorious Life by Kate Manning  has been on my Kindle since last fall. Since then, I’ve  had numerous book slumps where I couldn’t get into anything! WHY did I wait so long to read this brilliant, detailed, gripping page turner? I loved it. Here are the details (via Amazon): “Exquisitely written and richly detailed, My Notorious Life is a marvel. Kate Manning’s rags-to-riches Dickensian saga brings to vivid life the world of nineteenth-century New York City, in all its pitiful squalor and glittering opulence. I loved this novel.” —Christina Baker Kline, New…

        If you aren’t consuming fennel, you are missing out! Its an herb that might be easy to overlook in the store, its certainly not as well known as parsley or cilantro but its worth your time to learn about. Fennel is so good for you! I just began incorporating it into my weekly diet on a regular basis. I especially love a pear and fennel juice combination. You can do a lot with fennel- juice it, slice into a salad, saute and serve as a side dish, roast with cauliflower in a pan. I like to eat fennel seeds {find in the spice section of the grocery store} because it seems to…

Which means sadly you won’t often find me out in it for long, however I need to remember that as my tolerance to the sun changes, I need to make sure my habits change to, making sure I allow for the difference in the way my body process and accepts the sun.

  • Is your winter skin drinking your makeup?

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

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

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

    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

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

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

    23 Feb 2014 | 11:15 pm
    I am very excited to bring you a review on Too Faced's Chocolate bar, a deliciously-scented, vegan-friendly, paraben-free, sulfate and phlatlates-free neutral palette. 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…
  • Dark Plum Using Too Faced Chocolate Bar Makeup Tutorial

    17 Feb 2014 | 11:31 pm
    I got another makeup tutorial look using Too Faced Chocolate Bar for you. These looks are so fun to make as I do very little planning ahead of time. 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…

    I’m pushing thirty {which seems unreal!!} but I can still remember in Elementary school watching daytime TV talk show makeovers with my grandmother.  Oprah and Sally Jessy Raphael in the afternoons, and Regis and Kathie Lee in the mornings {during the summer of course}. Believe it or not I can still remember some of the timeless advice they gave.  Some included: - Apply lotion on your feet, hands, knees, and elbows every night because those are the driest parts of your body. - To keep your manicure going strong and staying shiny add a thin layer of topcoat every day. - To fight…

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

    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. Apply through hair from root to tip focusing on ends. Crunch hair with hands and let dry. For girls with wavy, medium to fine hair, I…

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

  • 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.

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…

Is the waif look, glorified on the cover of every fashion magazine, so dominant in the 90s and the 2000s, finally out?

    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…

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…

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.

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.

    It should be no big surprise that  men’s skin  ages differently than a woman’s.  Their stronger muscles ( yes even in the face) develops deeper wrinkles.  Men have more sun damage on the face and neck  and develop more non-melanoma skin cancers.  Men’s skin tends to be thicker oiler and then there is that beard to take into account. Tretinoin ( eg Retin-A cream) along with a sunscreen is the foundation  of an anti-aging skin care for women and it works equally well for men.  According to  New York City dermatologist Dr Gary Goldenberg, Retin A can be used on…

  • Oily Skin Solution

    29 Jul 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Are you sick and tired of waking up day after day with oily, greasy skin?

  • Rice cooker pancakes!

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

    To kick things off again i'm going straight in with a review. I was looking for some kind of whitening product and this popped up in the recommendations on the Mecca website. 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…

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

    Rio Rosa Mosqueta
    28 May 2014 | 1:37 am
    Acne is a skin condition that affects most people at some point in their lives and it’s not unusual for affected skin to be left with scars.

    Two years ago I began running workshops on how to live a greener, more natural life. In Singapore, being eco-conscious isn’t easy, and it was great to be able to share some of the knowledge that I’d picked up from the amazing community here. Since then, I’ve met hundreds of individuals and dozens of organisations who want to do things differently: people who want to make healthier changes but don’t know how to get started; as well as people who already live a low-impact lifestyle and want to pick up some new tricks and recipes, as well as spending time with like-minded…

Plus, I'm obsessed with the color. I don't own anything in this shade yet. I'm debating whether or not I should wear this to work.

    When and how to motivate yourself to exercise is one of the biggest obstacles that people face when working out. I hate working out. There I said it. I like exercise after it’s done.
