How to Choose Eyeshadow Color Combinations from a Palette

Have you ever looked at an eyeshadow palette and just been lost at how to start using it? Sometimes the color combinations jump out at us but other times, they’re harder to spot. I have a very methodical approach to initially looking at an eyeshadow palette to visualize the types of color combinations that can come from it, which I’ve shared when I wrote briefly about how to build your own palette here. This post features Natasha Denona’s Love Eyeshadow Palette, which...

ILIA DayLite Highlighters & NightLite Bronzers Swatches

At the end of April, I spied two new releases from ILIA: the ILIA DayLite Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) and ILIA NightLite Bronzer ($34.00 for 0.42 oz.).

How old would you want to be in heaven?

Many religious faiths propose different versions of heaven as a location: There are walled gardens with streams, flowers, pleasing scents, pretty angels, rapturous music or delicious accessible food.But what about us – the once-mortal – who will go on to inhabit the heavenly real estate? What form will our bodies take? Not all religions posit bodily resurrection. But those that do tend to depict them as young. As the author of prize-winning books on age and culture, I tend to notice unseen forms...

Vom sozialen Druck, in der Selbst-Isolation schlank & fit zu werden

Die meisten von uns haben mit gemischten Gefühlen während der Selbst-Isolation zu kämpfen. In einem Moment bist du einfach nur froh darüber, gesund und sicher in deinem Zuhause zu sein. Und kurz darauf möchtest du dich eigentlich nur unter deiner Decke verkriechen und solange dort bleiben, bis die Krise vorbei ist und du endlich wieder einen normalen Alltag haben kannst. Zwischen diesen Ups und Downs kommt hin und wieder noch etwas Zeit für Fitness dazu. Immerhin wissen wir ja, dass solche Ho...

Mit diesen Songs von Never Have I Ever fühlst du dich wieder wie ein Teenie

Achtung: Der Artikel enthält kleine Spoiler zur Netflix-Serie Never Have I Ever (Noch nie in meinem Leben). Klischeemäßig werden Nerds in Filmen und Serien immer als sehr schüchterne, aber extrem schlaue Außenseiter dargestellt. Im Handlungsverlauf lernen wir sie dann schätzen und merken, das sie überraschend liebenswert sind – und manchmal lustig, hilfsbereit oder auch hoffnungslos romantisch. Etwas, das allerdings so gut wie nie mit den Geeks in Verbindung gebracht wird, ist sexuelles Verlange...

Sephora Weekend Warrior Tone Up Cream Please Be Like the CC Cushion

Sephora Weekend Warrior Tone Up Cream caught my attention today and I thought to myself what if this is somehow as wonderful as the old Wonderful Cushion Foundation! Ok, here me out. It’s not a cushion makeup obviously but the lightweight cream formula with sheer coverage does make it sound like it might be as lovely as Wonderful Cushion Foundation! I’m probably just missing the cushion so much at the moment that maybe I need a pick me up to lessen the feels from losing Wonderful Cushion. ...

Kaja Dreamy Gleamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter Review & Swatches

Dreamy Kaja Dreamy Glowy Stamp Liquid Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It was subtler than Gleamy, so it would be ideal for someone who likes a hint of warmer glow but doesn’t want overt shimmery or a heavy shine to come through. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that pressed onto the skin well with the included stamp-sponge applicator, though it worked just as we...

Xeriscape Doesn’t Mean Xero Maintenance

Three and a half years ago we bought a new house. We got a great deal on it, but more importantly, it fit our very unique needs. I can’t imagine another house that would fit our needs like this has. There are a lot of perks to this house. It was built very nicely and has a lot of amenities. We finally live in a cul de sac, and are zoned so we can have chickens. Our last house was great, but it didn’t meet our wish list of features. This one hit every one of them and has other features we didn’t ...
