Post image for Beauty Trick: Broken Eye Shadow Quick Fix

Update: This post originally ran on July 25, 2013, but we love this beauty trick and wanted to make sure that you all had a chance to see it!

Cracked eye shadow is such a bummer. So many times I’ve gotten my hands on a color I love, used it a bit, thrown it in my bag, and then all of a sudden it’s ruined! I try to salvage as much of it as I can, but it just ends up getting everywhere. This got me thinking… there has to be a way to correct this mistake without buying an entirely new eye shadow. And there is. Read more »

Post image for FP Girls Share Their Curly Hair Secrets

Update: This post originally ran August 8, 2013, but we wanted to bring it back for any of you curly-haired beauties who may have missed it!

We often get requests from readers for us to do beauty posts that focus on curly hair. Those with natural curls know that curly hair behaves much differently than other types, and must be treated accordingly! To get some insiders tips on the matter, I looked no further than the curly-haired beauties right here in our home office.

I really appreciate the "flip your hair over" trick. Mixed Chicks has a new redefining foam/mousse that I can do that with in the morning. It's not at Target stores yet, but I did get it at their website: http://www.mixedchicks.net/morning-after-redefining-foam.html Keep the blogs coming!

I would suggest blow drying your hair with a low setting and avoid the high/really hot settings. A diffuser is a must when it comes to curly hair..... any hair dryer will do as long as it comes with a diffuser. You can find more info on hair dryers for those with curly hair here http://www.shophairdryers.com/best-hair-dryer-for-curly-hair/ Oils are also great for adding shine and lustre while controlling frizzies and flayways. Moroccan oil is my fave (but pricey).

Post image for 5 Ways To Moisturize Your Lips This Fall

As much as I love the cool weather that rolls in with fall, this is when our skin starts to get dry and chapped – especially the lips. I have very sensitive skin, so I have always struggled with chapped lips this time of year. Whether it is from dehydration, allergies, or weather, nobody likes to have that annoying flaky skin or the pain that comes with it. As we enter this season, I wanted to share some natural remedies to keep your lips hydrated. Read more »

Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

One of my favorite parts about entering a new season is how the shift in weather brings about a shift in our moods, and how that mood shift then translates to a change in colors in our wardrobe, hair, and makeup. Read more »

Post image for Staying Natural: 10 Ingredients To Avoid In Beauty Products

I have always been a beauty product fiend. I find it really fun to try out all different skin, hair, and makeup products to see how they make me feel, and I’m constantly on a search for that one miracle product that will change my life (ha). As I’ve gotten slightly wiser over the past few years, though, I’ve learned that there are so many products out there that do way more harm than good. Read more »

Great post! It's scary to think about the number of chemicals that are in the products we put on our skin every single day. Did you know that while the European Union bans more than 1,300 ingredients, the US only bans 11??! This is why I switched to Beautycounter... check it out! nicolesunderland.beautycounter.com
adamsjones -Jan 04, 2015, 10:08AM

Post image for Hair Inspiration: A Touch Of Grunge

When I get creative with my hair, one of my favorite things to do is to incorporate a piece of fabric or a scarf into the style. Since the trend on our homepage this week is Girl Gone Grunge, I re-visited this technique, but this time using a piece of flannel fabric to add in a touch of grunge. Using the fabric to wrap around braids or tie in your hair is a different way to do something creative with your hair and it’s so simple to do! Read more »

Uh... I so did not know that exfoliating helps you tan better. I mean, it totally makes sense when you think about it, but I still feel mindblown. I am going to be in sunny Atlanta this weekend, so I am going to make sure I exfoliate the heck out of my skin! http://smellthetoffee.com http://lamentinglizzie.blogspot.com
