Does Your High School Beauty Routine Embarrass You Now?

Back when I was in high school, I was pretty high maintenance (even though I didn’t have a job). My brows were groomed every two weeks. My acrylic-wrapped nails were inches long. And my beauty mark, courtesy of liquid eyeliner, had to rest “just so” on my left cheek. That’s right, I, Annika Harris, committed these three beauty sins throughout high school, and even a bit in college. But only two of these cardinal sins embarrass me now. Keep reading »

This approach works, but can take days longer than I’d like to clear up a pimple, and I often have a hyper-pigmentation mark after. A few days ago, I could feel two zits under the surface of my skin on my chin — that’s what a day of sweating at the beach can do. So I decided to try the Claro IPL Acne Clearing Device, instead of my usual regimen. Keep reading »

Love ‘Em Or Leave ‘Em: Fake Eyelashes

This summer, I’ve been committed to attending as many frivolous pop concerts as possible and dressing accordingly, which means sequins, disastrously high heels, and my recently discovered favorite accessory: fake eyelashes. I’d actually never tried them before the Britney Spears concert (I know, I know) a few weeks ago. My friend Molly and I bought a couple pairs, and from the moment they were attached to my eyelids, even though they were crooked and drenched in excess glue (it was our first time), I felt sultry and glamorous. In talking to my friends, I’ve noticed that about half of them share my love for fake lashes, and the other half thinks they’re disgusting. So I’m wondering: which camp do you fall into?
