Wearing flip-flops and going barefoot whenever possible is a fun and refreshing summer tradition, but man, it makes for ugly feet. Why not treat your feetsies to a homemade strawberry scrub that will leave them soft, smooth, and smelling decidedly more delicious than sweat and sidewalk? All it takes is three ingredients–strawberries, olive oil, and… READ MORE »

I don’t know about the rest of the world — or the rest of the country, for that matter — but it’s depressingly hot at my latitude and longitude. Don’t get me wrong, I love the warm weather and sunshine, but I also like to look fairly presentable, and that is not happening right now. READ MORE »

One of my favorite hobbies is irresponsibly throwing cash, caution, and common sense to the wind, essentially handing off my dignity in return for high-end beauty products, but even my cosmetics-grubbing jaw drops at some of the prices on the stuff. Just the other day my very own father texted me to say, “Have you… READ MORE »

If you are unfortunate enough to be born with dry skin, your life will go something like this:

Everyone from dermatologists to fashion magazines will tell you that you have to wash your face with Cetaphil.
You will realize they are right, so you will wash your face with Cetaphil.

I’m convinced that I am one of melting makeup’s worst victims. I have serious issues keeping my face on the other nine months of the year, let alone summer, when it’s prime time for super sexy sweaty skin. As such, I’ve been forced to develop some pretty hardcore techniques for keeping my makeup on as… READ MORE »

As a verifiable beauty junkie, I can’t get enough beauty products. My drawers are filled with them, my closet overflowing, and yet, if something new comes out, I have to try it. It’s a disease. That’s why I’m crazy for Beauty Bar’s Sample Society program, which sends deluxe-size samples of new products directly to your… READ MORE »

Most conspiracy theories make me giggle. I’m a pretty open-minded gal, but the notion that the moon landing was faked strikes me as downright bizarre. However, I do believe that most major cosmetics and personal care products companies actively conspire against women. These corporations strive to manufacture discontent among women to convince them to buy… READ MORE »

We’re now 12 days into Earth Month, and to celebrate, we’ve been calling attention to all things eco-friendly, sustainable and planet-conscious. I’m not going to front like I’m the greenest person on earth, because I’m far from it, but when it comes to things I’m putting on my face and body, I insist on keeping… READ MORE »

We all want airbrushed smooth skin without having to pay the hundreds of dollars fancy airbrush makeup kits cost, am I right? Thank God for BB Cream, a masterful all-in-one cream that does the job of an airbrush makeup without the high cost. Smashbox’s BB Cream is lightweight and airy, and comes with SPF 35. READ MORE »

When it comes to playing up one of my features, I generally go for my eyes. In the days when I had acne and frizzy hair, and didn’t care much for my thin upper lip, my eyes always struck me as my prettiest asset. Now I have much higher self-esteem (not to mention clearer skin… READ MORE »

Skincare used to be a whole daunting arena of the beauty industry that I avoided out of fear. My dry, sensitive skin is so fickle. I washed daily with Cetaphil, scrubbed once or twice a week with St. Ives Apricot Scrub, and glopped on a pricy Bliss face mask every month or so. Most days… READ MORE »

I’m a diehard believer in the power of makeup to make you not just look better (though it’s a fortunate byproduct) but truly feel better. We’ve all reenacted, purposely or not, the scene from “Mean Girls” that shows the Plastics staring in the mirror alongside one another, discrediting their appearances, one by one, for one reason… READ MORE »

Ever since I quit drinking coffee regularly, I’ve fallen victim to a very serious case of the 3 o’clock brain lapse. Every day around the same time I suffer the same symptoms: heavy eyelids, fuzzy thought process, 10 yawns per minute, a mind that wanders to visions of mattresses … and the only known cure… READ MORE »

Each color in the eye-shaped palette is sectioned off according to where it should be applied to your eyelid. There’s a dark purple for the lash-line, lavender for the lid, a shimmery white for just under… READ MORE »

Finnish beauty brand Lumene’s line of moisturizers and skin creams has all the usual bells and whistles — a built-in sunscreen and a luxurious, smooth feel with no greasy after-sheen. But its added secret weapon? Arctic Cloudberries. Native to Finland, cloudberries offer amazing age-defying benefits. Their seed oil protects and strengthens the skin, and the… READ MORE »

I love lipstick, possibly to a point of obsession and definitely to a point of monetary drain. The more luxurious (and French), the better — Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté, Chantecaille Lip Chic, Guerlain Rouge Automatique… be still, my beating heart. I maintain that the last testament to my sanity is the fact that I’ve… READ MORE »
