Do we need to tell you that we believe every woman should be confident and happy with the features she was naturally given? Do we need the disclaimer? Because we do believe that. We do. But we also believe that we’re personally a lot happier with how we look when we can open up our squinty eyes a little bit with a few eyeliner tricks.
We love blush for many reasons, one of the main ones being that with just a flick of the brush it’s possible to change the appearance of the entire shape of your face.

The key to balancing out this face shape..
Professional skin-care analysis: do you need one?
Lately we’ve been reading a lot of trend pieces that feature a beauty or skin-care writer booking an appointment with a high-end dermatologist, getting a full skin-care analysis done, and then endlessly extolling the virtues of this very expensive procedure that they most definitely had completed in exchange for the publicity. Why yes, our skin-care analysis would probably reveal that we have advanced wrinkling on the left side of our forehead due to excessive, bitter eyebrow raising.
At any rate. For you, dear readers, we looke..
Looking good in summer, no matter what
For most of the summer we readily admit that it's very tempting – and very easy – to just say forget it when it comes to beauty and style, and focus on having fun at the beach or in the waves. But we also know that there may be times such as at the beginning of a relationship or when there’s going to be a ton of cameras around for instant Instagramming that it’s not entirely possible to shrug off how wild and windswept you may look.
That’s why we’ve created this easy guide to looking your best in the summer, even when you’re dragging yours..
We all remember the days of squirting lemon juice in our hair and laying out in the hot weather, hoping the sun would bless us with perfect highlights. Ah, to be young and dumb again like we were last summer.
Some of us are lucky enough to get lightened-up locks courtesy of the summer sun. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, though: that summer bleaching? Super bad for your hair. In fact: summer? Super bad for your hair. Here are a few steps you’ll want to consider taking to protect your hair. These are especially important if your hair is colored or otherwise chemically treated.
Emma Watson started it, and Miley Cyrus soon followed suit. Then came Ginnifer Goodwin and of course Jennifer Lawrence, and suddenly it seemed like every woman on earth was considering a pixie cut. This is the perfect time of year to go short because you’ll be feeling pretty good when the temperatures reach 25 degrees Celsius and higher.
However, short hair isn’t always the no-muss, no-fuss option people seem to think it is. These are the maintenance tips you’ll want to keep in mind to make the most of your newly-short locks if you decide to make the cut.
There are some trends we tend to jump on immediately. Pants that feel like sweatpants without looking like sweatpants, anything involving the word linen, those stuffed cookies everyone was making two years ago. Oh yes. We’re big on those types of trends.
Other trends we tend to be a little wary of, especially when it comes to skin care trends that are labeled the next big thing in anti-aging. If we were to buy every new product that is labeled the next big anything, we’d be seeing a lot of product and money going down the drain. So before Roloxin ends up on anyone’s shopping list, we..
We have something we need to get off our chest. It’s not something that’s easy to admit, but it must be done: last week we bought so much Easter candy the cashier asked us how many kids we have, while in reality 0 kids would be enjoying these sweets – only us. Oh yeah, and we’re also super addicted to how we look on Instagram. So of course we’ve been on the hunt for a way to replicate that magical filter effect in real life. Here’s what we’ve come up with.
Smooth out your skin
Imagine you had a tool that could instantly fill in your wrinkles and smooth the skin on the surface t..
One of the newest trends we’re seeing pop up at Sephora and other skin care speciality stores are face masks infused with carbon or oxygen intended to have them fizzing on your face. We love a little carbonation in our Diet Dr Pepper, so of course we had to set out to see if this bubbling action is as good on the skin as it is in a drink.
What the fizzing does
The reason for including this fizzing action in a facial mask is purportedly to stimulate circulation in order to leave skin soft and hydrated with a natural glow.
Who it might be useful to
If you absolutely h..
Yeah, we know, we’re tired of reading articles dedicated to preparing us for summer, only to look outside and still see crummy weather. It’s coming, though - we swear! Unless you enjoy the stress of nothing being done and everything going wrong right up until the last minute, you probably should start preparing for all that fun in the sun. Because we have to tell you, we go the high-stress, last-minute route on absolutely everything, and it’s pretty terrible. We should probably stop that.
We love Retinol. We think it is a very necessary anti-aging component once..
Care to see a magic trick? What we’re about to do is send your blood pressure up, your confidence down, and make you feel hot with rage all over, all with one simple, three-word question.
“Are you tired?”
Oh, how rarely this question is followed up by an offer of a nap or a cushy robe or assistance of any kind. All anyone ever seems to mean with this question is “Wow! You’re not looking so good.” If we’re being perfectly honest though, the reason this question can be so aggravating is because very often the answer is yes, we are tired, and yes, we know we look it. We’re not in ..
In life, there are good times to imitate celebrities, and bad times to imitate celebrities. Busting out your best Sean Connery voice at a party because you’ve had three shots of whiskey and you think it’s a dead-on impression? Good time to imitate celebrities!
One thing you may be seeing a lot of on celebrities is makeup contouring. This carefully-applied shading and powders can do everything from seriously slim the face to turn a big, honking shnozz into a narrow button nose. It’s makeup magic. But generally, unless you happen to be a makeup contouring professional, if you walk arou..
Feeling tired and sluggish not only makes us feel low, but according to recent research in Sweden, sleep-deprived people are perceived as less attractive and ‘sadder’ than well rested subjects. If you, like many of us get by on too little sleep and often feel in need of more shut eye, then here are some tips to help you fake ‘awake’.
Eliminate eye bags
Puffy eyes are a common side effect of too little sleep. When you’re sleep-deprived, fluid pools in the tissues around the eyes and if you’ve been eating foods high in sodium this could make the problem worse. For a quick fix mas..
There’s so much beauty advice and information out there that it can get difficult to separate fact from fiction. Here are a few beauty myths currently doing the rounds you shouldn’t take too seriously.
’Age spots are simply a fact of getting older’
Actually these brown, freckle-like skin discolorations are not purely down to age. They can result from years of over-exposure to the sun. In order to treat what is known as hyper-pigmentation you can use Dead Sea Premier’s Pearl Whitening Cream. It can effectively lighten skin by preventing it from producing too much melanin.
At low temperatures we get our “cold weather” skin. It’s flaky and itchy – and it’s here for at least a couple of months. We’ve got ourselves a real battle ahead trying to save what was not so long ago our comfortable, pretty skin.
As skin professionals, we have some great tips for adjusting your winter skincare routine to the weather.
Use creams, not lotions: We know it’s a shame to throw away a perfectly good moisturizing lotion, but it’s really the only way. Lotions are less moisturizing than creams, and your skin needs al the help it can get. Remember that Oily skin gets dr..
