Have you ever been told you look tired, or asked if you didn’t sleep well the night before? Usually the restless night of sleep, late night out, or early morning wake up call is evident on our face.

A spokesperson for the company claimed this estimate was [...]

Our Esthetician Shares Her Daily Winter Skincare Routine

As an esthetician, I have a strict policy of never recommending a product to a client or friend without using it myself. I am a firm believer in “do as I do” not “do as I say.” When I recommend increasing your water intake, you can bet that I am right there with you increasing my own.

How to Make Your Own (Totally Giftable!) Sugar Scrub Cubes

Homemade scrubs are some of my all-time favorite beauty products. They’re super easy to make and they leave your skin feeling so darn soft and squeaky clean. But you know what I’m not such a fan of? That mess. I can hardly even make it to the shower without spilling it everywhere, or getting my jar waterlogged and ruining what’s left of my scrub. I may be a tad melodramatic, but the struggle is real. That’s why I want to [...]

Before and after photos that show the magic of makeup

Makeup is a powerful tool that can undoubtedly be used for fun, but can also help people in a much more dramatic way. Shalom Nchom (who goes by Shalom Blac on her YouTube channel) is a burn survivor who proves that makeup is a way to feel confident in your own skin, no matter what.  After an accident involving hot oil when she was just nine years old, Nchom turned to makeup as a way to transform herself.

Beauty ‘mistakes’ that aren’t actually mistakes at all

Makeup mistakes happen every day, even to the most seasoned beauty veterans. Smudges, smears, or smashed products are cold, hard facts of the cosmetics life. But you don’t actually need to grab your micellar water or a makeup remover wipe to take it all off and start over every time you experience a product application fail.  In fact, with a little creativity, imagination, and ingenuity, as well as some additional tools, like cotton swabs, your makeup flubs may not actually be [...]
