It's no secret that olive oil can be part of a healthy lifestyle. But how do its benefits translate into skincare? Quite well - with a little help from the Japanese, by way of Spain.
No, that's not a typo! My evening skin-brightening regimen breaks the rules for major impact. Read more about the standbys I've revisited, and the drugstore balm I seriously can't stop talking about.
Tucked comfortably into a pair of skinny jeans, makeup done, and heels on, you'd think I'd be feeling pretty good about myself skipping out for a girl's night with my dear friend Amy. She rarely gets to visit NY, and I was stoked to meet her at a hidden gem of an underground Japanese restaurant. All good stuff, but something was amiss - actually, missing: my hair.
Having a professional tend to my talons falls pretty low on my list of priorities, but when time permits, who doesn't love to have perfectly-manicured mitts? And who doesn't curse under her breath (or out loud) at the first sign of a chip?
In case you missed it, Barbie now comes in tall, petite, and curvy. Cue the internet explosion of praise for embracing a wider variety of body types.
If you're in your thirties, there's a strong chance your first makeup encounter was with Wet 'N' Wild, and not an actual beauty counter. Investing your hard-earned babysitting money in cheap lip gloss, Studio Line hairspray, and of course, Gobstoppers and Bubbletape, was a rite of passage.
My name is Nicole, and I am addicted to peels. Whew. Glad I got that off my chest. So where does an addict get her fix? I score on the cheap, at the seemingly little-known website, Makeup Artist's Choice.
It's all the rage now, but I've been obsessing over Asian skincare products for years. Flying solo in Seoul, Hong Kong, and Singapore yielded some of my favorite beauty finds, but I'm truly spoiled by my proximity to Korea Town and Flushing, Queens - both a K-Beauty junkie's dream.
I love when the January chill sneaks up on me and renders my already overworked hands into sandpaper-covered mitts. Awesome! Hand cream is something I’ve never really kept up on.
Eye makeup remover. Cuticle soother. Hair treatment. Occasional butter replacement. Yes, coconut oil has earned its place in my beauty arsenal, and in a pinch, it makes its way into a cake recipe. However, when it comes to choosing a face oil, I appreciate a product that's liquid at room temperature and easily absorbed. And if the price is right? Even better!
