Finally: An Anti-Aging Treatment That Doesn’t Involve Instruments Of Torture Or Crazy Products

Getting old is a bitch. Not just beginning to look older, but also because of the pain so many women suffer through to not look older. Yamuna Zake, inventor of the body rolling fitness technique, has adapted the method to work for the face. Her New York City studio now offers an anti-wrinkle treatment that involves rolling a soft ball on your skin to massage, tone, and stretch it. After several sessions, the muscles in your face supposedly react by tightening, giving sagging areas a boost. Sounds slightly weird? Yes. But also incredibly soothing. [Daily Candy] Keep reading »

Will You Try These 5 Nail Trends This Summer?

If there was ever a time to indulge in manicures and pedicures, it would be for the long, hot days of summer. Gloves and closed toed shoes are no longer necessary pieces of attire, which means fingers and toes are out on display for the world to see. But while this added effort may seem like one more thing to worry about, use the opportunity as a excuse to show off your style, and decorate your nails with the must-try trends. Read on to catch up on five nail looks you’ll want to test out this summer. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Illamasqua Pure Pigment In Static

I’ve found a miracle in a pot, and, no, I’m not talking illicit drugs. I’m basically obsessed with my latest multi-tasking makeup find. Illamasqua, a British cosmetic company that crossed the pond about a year ago, is known for its bold and vibrant makeup colors, so I was super excited when Catherine (miss ya, girl!) handed me a pot of Pure Pigment in Static, an iridescent purplish-pink.

Corny Or Cute? Fresh’s “Eat, Pray, Love” Perfumes

The scene: A group of Sony execs at a brainstorming meeting.

Exec #1: “We need to begin promotion for the release of ‘Eat, Pray, Love‘. Marketing ideas?”
Exec #2: “Women like ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. What other things do women like?”
Exec#1: “Shoes. Cupcakes.”
Exec #2: “Perfume.”
Exec #1: “Perfume’s good. Girls like perfume. Let’s go with that.”

This is how we imagine Sony’s marketing team came up with their cross-promotional initiatives to publicize the unapologetically female-focused Julia Roberts flick, due out in August. Hence, Fresh’s line of “Eat, Pray, Love” fragrances was born. The beauty company has produced a trio of scents corresponding to the movie’s three categories, and we’d imagine each attempts to evoke the essence of writer Elizabeth Gilbert’s journey. Smells like Hollywood, dontcha think? [W Magazine Blog] Keep reading »

Quick Tip: Use Self-Tanner On Stretch Marks

As you’re all well aware, it’s swimsuit season. We’re half happy not to have to wear much clothing when it’s about 90 degrees out, but also half annoyed at ourselves for how self-conscious we sometimes get about the jiggly bits. We’ve all got them, but sometimes the little flaws feel more daunting than they reasonably should. Stretch marks, for example. Infuriating, right? Whether you’ve got one or 50, they’re no fun and it’s a little hard to be totally confident in a tiny bikini when your skin appears to be ripping at the seams. If you can get past them, more power to you; we’re jealous. If stretch marks cause you to spend a little too much time coming up with swimsuit strategies to cover them up, we’ve got an idea: self-tanner. Keep reading »

Next In Nails: YSL’s Punchy French Mani

For the past few years, the French manicure has been on the style fence as a slightly tacky favorite. We predict that Yves Saint Laurent‘s “couture manicure” nail polish set will cause a trend wave and completely refresh the traditional manicure. (Of course it would take a Frenchie to make the style chic again … nevermind that he’s dead. He’s just that good.) Called Rock & Baroque, the super bright colors pair up fabulously to create flashy nail/tip combos. Hues in the mix: juicy orange, dark sea foam, metallic gold, magenta, and deep purple. Our favorite way to rock this look? Stick to two colors like the purple and green (although painting different nails several colors works, too), alternating the nail and tip shade every few nails to create an imbalanced aesthetic. Quirky! [Vogue Paris] Keep reading »
