Everything You Should Know About Your Skin's Natural pH Level and Keeping It Balanced

Your skin is more complex than you may realize - consider how easy it is for a breakout to come on if you touch your face, or for your skin to get irritated if you add a new product into your routine, or for the weather to make your face dry. There's a science behind skin care - a lot of it, actually. Do you remember learning about pH levels in high school science class? It applies to more than just experiments; keeping your skin's natural pH level in check is important for maintaining healthy ...

5 Beauty Habits I've Dropped Since Working From Home, and 5 Good Ones I've Picked Up

Self-isolation isn't my first experience working from home; I've done it on and off for the past several months. But whether or not you consider that a benefit, there's no denying this: you have a little more time and a lot fewer places to go each day. I was surprised to discover how much this changed my beauty routine. It's not that the lack of working in an office every day has made me lazy or the like, but really, I've just had more time to evaluate what I want to spend time and money on - a...

A Makeup Artist Shared His Insider Tips For Setting Your Makeup With Translucent Powder

Setting powder is one of those makeup products that you either use every day in your routine without fail or you're not quite sure what it's for, let alone how to use it properly. There are a lot of different ways you can apply translucent powder - it's not just limited to baking your makeup (we won't even get into that one right now). If you want to extend the wear of your makeup, applying a little powder can be key to making your products stay put way past their initial claim. Want to know th...

How to Give Yourself the Most Relaxing At-Home Facial Massage

Did you know there are 43 muscles in your face? They're pretty important muscles - if you consider everything they allow you to do, like smile and frown - and yet, they're often forgotten about. Try to think of the last time you gave yourself a good facial massage. Many people spend a lot of time on the outside of their face layering on products and creams for a length skin-care routine, but rarely take the extra step and indulge in a full massage routine. Here's why you should: facial massages...

How to Maintain Your Eyelash Extensions at Home While Salons Are Closed

5 Tips on Making Curls Stay in Any Hair Type (Even Yours!)

Given the number of rollers, curling irons, and flatirons on the market designed to curl hair, you'd think by now getting long-lasting waves would be easy.

The good news is there are actually some very simple ways to stop your curls from dropping or falling out completely and make them last longer than a few hours. Whether yo...

Decluttering Your Beauty Stash Is the Ultimate Form of Self-Care - Here’s Where to Start

I've never been a minimalist, and I never will be. I love color, live in patterns, and in general just like having options - lots of them. What I don't like, however, is clutter. As a self-proclaimed "beauty girl" and collector for over 12 years (three of which were spent as a beauty editor), it's no surprise I amassed quite the product stash. Sure, I'd done several purges over the years, dividing some products between friends and throwing old ones in the trash. I'd also made my way through qui...

The Easy Time-Management Trick I Use to Stay on Top of My Work and Self-Care Routine

Whether you're juggling your job duties and family ones (in the same space) or just working from home solo for the first time, it's going to be an adjustment. Trust me, I feel you. When I first starting working from home as a freelancer, I found time management to be one of the most challenging aspects to master, from the pressure from "just one more email" to the siren song of a nearby couch and TV. However, in addition to my actual job (which I've done remotely for a while now), I've also appo...

Brittle Nails? Here's How to Keep Them From Breaking, According to a Manicurist

Nothing takes you from bad-case scenario to help-I'm-falling-apart case scenario faster than a brittle nail that keeps on breaking. (Everyone knows that situation is only funny on in meme form . . . or just about any other sequence of events that does not involve you, right now, in real life.) Not only is a split nail painful, but the fact that it then often snags on just about everything you come in contact with also makes it extremely cumbersome. If the damage is already done, we're here to he...

An Easy Breakdown of How to Apply Individual False Lashes

False lashes are great, especially if you need a budget-friendly option for long, thicker lashes - and quick. But lash strips can make even the most expert beauty aficionado fall to their knees. If you've dabbled in faux eyelashes, you know that it takes practice to perfect. Mercury has to be out of retrograde. Winds have to be less than 15 mph. You have to be out of direct sunlight. (You get the gist.) It's an art! Whenever friends ask me to do their lashes or ask for suggestions on to apply t...

How to Touch Up Your Brows at Home Between Salon Appointments

Few beauty tasks are trickier than touching up your eyebrows at home. We've all been there, tweezers in hand, staring into a magnifying mirror, ready to take action. But a lot is at stake here: one wrong move and you risk overplucking, leaving a gap in your eyebrow hair, and otherwise just messing up your brow shape that you've worked so hard at. It's wise to just leave it to the experts and wait for your next eyebrow appointment, but during a brow emergency when you can't get into a salon for o...

10 Concealer Hacks That Will Make Your Dark Undereye Circles Disappear

If there is one spot on the face that gives everything away, it's under the eyes. Stayed up late binge-watching Netflix? Dark circles. Had a few extra cocktails at happy hour? Puffiness.

But luckily, you can easily make all of yesterday's drama disappear with the right makeup products - specifically a good undereye concealer.

A Celebrity Esthetician Shared the One Skin Question She Gets Asked About the Most

Celebrities - they're just like us, right? Not really . . . but at least their skincare concerns are. Crystal Koro, a celebrity esthetician and founder of Crystal Clear Skin & Beauty in LA, who has worked with Olivia Culpo, Mel B, and even gave Kylie Jenner her first facial, is privy to some top-notch insider requests, but do you know what the number one skincare concern is that she's asked about?

These Skincare Organizers Will Help You Finally Feel Like You Have It All Together

There's nothing like organizing your beauty collection to make you feel like you have your sh*t together. Something about taking everything off of the shelves and out of the drawers, reorganizing it by category, or daily use or brand, and putting it back in an orderly fashion. (No? Just us?) If you're itching to instill some order in your current what-day-even-is-it, out-of-sorts state, Spring cleaning your skincare products can be oddly therapeutic. Makeup products tend to receive more love wh...

How to Maintain Your Hair Color While Salons Are Closed

If you're someone who follows a strict beauty routine - hair salon touch-ups every four weeks, monthly facials, weekly manicures - then social distancing is likely affecting your schedule greatly. Nail salons, hair salons, and beauty stores are closing, forcing everyone to take matters into their own hands with DIY facials, at-home mani-pedis, and most importantly, DIY hair color touch-ups. If you're in the same boat and currently stressing about how you're going to keep your hair dye from look...

3 Easy Ways You Can Remove Your Gel Manicure at Home

There are many reasons to love a gel manicure, but a few in particular stand out. For starters, you really can't beat the fact that they require little to no drying time, meaning that you don't have to spend hours after your nail salon visit being too afraid to use your hands out of fear that you'll ruin that glossy finish. Still, gel manicures can only last for so long, so when life gets hectic, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in a removal appointment before you resort to just peeling th...

Yep, This Is Actually How Often You Should Be Showering Right Now . . .

So, you're social distancing. (Or at least you should be.) That means venturing outside to get your hair done or working out at the gym is temporarily off the table, and when the most face-to-face contact you're getting with other human beings is via Google Hangout over spotty WiFi, it's easy to wonder: do I really need to shower as often as I used to? Basic hygiene principles aside, that's a fair question - although its answer largely depends on a number of factors. "Under normal circumstances,...

Can Nail Polish Remover Be Used to Sanitize and Disinfect? We Have the Answer

With the coronavirus at top of mind right now, many of us are experiencing a heightened desire to keep our environment clean and germ-free. This includes avoiding touching our face, washing our hands frequently, practicing social distancing as advised by the CDC, and skipping out on our visit to the hair salon this month. But with stores selling out of many cleaning supplies due to an increase in demand, it also has us looking in our closets and under our bathroom sinks, scratching our heads an...

How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes (Because They Could Probably Use It)

We all know that it's bad for us to use dirty makeup brushes on our skin - you do wash your face twice a day for a reason - but can you actually remember the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Experts say you should wash your makeup brushes once a week, especially if you use them frequently. But if you're guilty of letting this task get away from you (like us), you don't need to run to the store to grab some fancy brush cleaner to get the job done. We're sharing an easy way to clean you...
