Lately, they have been launching a lot of cutesy, fruit themed makeup picks! Aside...

8 Banana Powders That'll Set Your Makeup Up For Success

At the end of the day, when all the trends have gone the way of the BlackBerry and the liquid lipsticks have dried out in their tubes, there are just two types of makeup lovers in the world: those who prefer sheer shine and lots of dew, and those who believe matte is the only way to go. If you identify with the latter, then you've no doubt owned a setting powder (or two, or three...) to keep your makeup on lockdown all day and your complexion grease-free.But all setting powders are not made ali...

NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Setting Powder Review & Swatches

I decided to purchase the new NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Setting Powder ($12) because I’m an idiot that already has a holy grail under eye setting powder but still requires moar makeup. Whenever I see a new banana setting powder I jump on it but typically nothing measures up to Hard Candy Sheer Envy Bake, Brighten & Set Loose Finishing Powder or Ben Nye Banana Powder. This is a frivolous purchase on my part as I just hauled Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder which I loved so...

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder Review & Swatches

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder ($32) is a new loose setting powder available in eight shade selections launched with the brand’s new line of Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer. Since I was purchasing the new concealer I admit I felt compelled to complete the purchase with the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder even though I’m a pretty faithful fan to my tried and true Ben Nye Banana Powder. I think I have some sort of weird mentality of, “Oh the concealer would ...

How To Glue Down Your Eyebrows — According To A Drag Queen

For years we've been told that good eyebrows are essential to any enviable makeup look. Drag queens know that better than anyone, going so far as to completely mask their own brows so they can draw better, more exaggerated ones on top."It transforms your face," Miss Toto, a drag queen based in Miami, says. "In the process of drag or any makeup look, you want to create more surface area. Removing your brow changes the game. If I didn’t have a job other than drag, I would shave my brows off."Whil...

Morphe M536 Under Eye Bullet Brush Do I Need It?

I have my eye on the Morphe M536 Under Eye Bullet Brush ($8) at the moment and I’m currently questioning do I need it? I apply my Ben Nye Banana Powder with a small Bobbi Brown Blending Brush that came with one of her concealer kits that was featured on QVC several years ago. It’s like a smaller version of MAC’s 224 and it works perfectly. So, what led to my sudden interest in a larger brush? I keep seeing youTubers using larger brushes to set their concealer and it seems like the powder sh...

Too Faced It’s Bananas Brightening Setting Powder Review & Swatches

Too Faced Tutti Fruitt It’s Bananas Brightening Setting Powder ($30) in Banana Cream is a new banana-scented setting powder that acts to blur imperfections while setting makeup to a flawless finish. I’m not sure this can exactly be called new because there was a Too Faced I Want Kandee Banana Pudding Brightening Setting Powder that launched with Kandee Johnson’s I Want Kandee Collaboration for Fall 2017. I actually didn’t like Banana Pudding at all. I felt it was too dense, dry, and difficult t...

Why Lex Scott Davis Went Without Makeup In The First Purge

Movie makeup is notorious for being heavy, dramatic, and taking forever to put on (and take off). But in Lex Scott Davis ' case, her daily glam for The First Purge took under 30 minutes — because she totally skipped actual makeup. Her character, Nya, is an activist whose mission is to protect her family and her community. "Because of the type of character Nya is, we didn't feel like the first thing on her mind was to get up and put makeup on," Davis tells Refinery29. "She gets up and goes to wo...

Kiko Free Soul Baking Powder Review & Swatches

Kiko Free Soul Baking Powder ($16) is a new matte face powder available in two shade selections which can be used when baking your face. I don’t bake. I always feel like my skin is too dry to attempt it but I do like setting my concealer with a banana shaded powder like Ben Nye Banana Powder or Hard Candy Sheer Envy Bake, Brighten & Set Loose Finishing Powder. Honestly, I’ve long since found my holy grail banana powder in Ben Nye’s formula but I still tend to migrate towards trying new ones and...

Becca* works part-time as a Disney princess at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, where she plays Elsa. The following interview was told to Alix Tunell and edited for length and clarity.I've been working at Disney for about three-and-a-half years. A year before I got the job, I vacationed with my family at Disneyland and my little sister was so excited to meet Tiana.

I picked up the new Milani Make It Last Setting Powder ($11) which is a new silky loose facial powder that launched in four shades for Spring 2018 in the shade Banana. Milani has had a variety of different powders that launched over the years like The Multitasker Face Powder, Prep + Set + Go Transparent, Prep + Set + Glow Powder, and others but to my knowledge this is the first time they launched a loose setting powder. As per my original post about Make It Last Setting Powder, I decided to pur...

Milani Has a New Banana Make It Last Setting Powder

At this point in my life I probably don’t need another banana or yellow setting powder in my life but somehow, I’ve becoming terribly addicted to them. My addiction started with Skin Food’s Salmon Dark Circle Powder and later on in life I discovered the joys of the Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit which includes a yellow setting powder. I think both of those items taught me that even though I have dry under eyes I could still set my concealer with powder. If you use just the right amount of...

6 Beauty Brands You Didn't Know Existed Until The Kardashians Made Them Famous

Even if you can't keep up with them, there's no getting around the power they wield over advertising, marketing, and retail America in general.Economically speaking, Kylie and Kim's lip kits and contour sticks bring in a crazy amount of money on their own (talking numbers: Kylie is charted to be a billionaire before the age of 25).

How To Create A Halloween Costume With Just Your Eyebrows

DIYing a Halloween costume always sounds like a fun idea. But when push comes to shove, we often find ourselves spending way too much time or money (or both) on a less than satisfactory outfit that we could have easily bought off Amazon. That's why we turn to Halloween makeup.A little Ben Nye face paint can quickly become a costume on its own. But sometimes even a black-and-white skull design or pop art Wonder Woman can seem way too intimidating to try, which is where Halloween brows come in. L...
