Post image for 4 Tricks To Make Perfume Last All Day

I love perfume. I think it’s so cool to have a signature scent that adds to the ambiance of who you are, and one that people remember you by. Scent is the most powerful memory trigger. Just one small trace of a scent can take your mind right back to a specific place, event, person, or period of time. Read more »

Actually i do produce perfume my self. from my research,findings and observation. a perfume sent isn't based on how you love it. it depends on the people around you and the comment they give about you fragrance. to make your perfume last longer you got to make sure the content are equally of the same ratio of 1:1:1. like my facebook page for more information on how you can create your own perfume. #Youbee

I would suggest using maybe something like Channel or Lancôme because those are actual perfumes not fragrance mists because the fragrance mist only lasts for about 2hrs and perfume last for a whole day, plus that will help you find your signature scent easier and you'll always smell good

Post image for Short Hair Styling Tips From FP Girls

I have long hair but in the summertime I’m always tempted to chop it off…in this heat, shorter locks seem so much lighter and cooler.  The last time I cut my hair short was years ago and I never knew how to style it, so I’ve kept it long ever since.  But I always envy those girls who pull it off so well — for example, Anja Rubik’s perfectly tousled locks in our July book. It seemed like the perfect time to get some styling tips from our home office girls who rock the shorter hair — those of you with short hair, share your tips in the comments! Read more »

It's really nice to find a short haired related post! I have a pixie haircut and I'd love to see how would you style it! You should do more about it please! It was really refreshing :)

Just cut my hair short and running low on inspiration, so this post was perfect! Really loving the last one, can't wait to try it!

I make up a concoction of eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil and water in a spray bottle and spray the sheets every couple of days. Keeps the cats off the bed at least for an hour or so...I also leave my wardrobe doors open on fine days and widely open all the windows plus I have some small wooden balls I soak in essential oil (when I remember). For times when I feel less prosaic I have another spray bottle of gardenia and water which I generally just spray around the room. Lovely, nearly exotic and not too expensive.

The soap in the drawer is genius! Going to have to try that. Lavender is definitely a calming aromatic. Great ideas you've posted. Thanks!

Post image for Tricks To Naturally Lengthen Your Eyelashes

On a day-to-day basis, the only eye makeup I wear is mascara. I naturally have long eyelashes, so a few swipes and I’m good to go. People tend to ask me what my trick is, and without having any specific one, it made me curious as to what natural remedies there actually are for lengthening your eyelashes. After doing some research, I found out that most of the tricks are fast and extremely simple. You won’t notice results right away, but if you use these tricks often, your eyelashes should start to lengthen and thicken overtime! Read more »

Hey I'm Olivia with the Vaseline what part of the comb do you put Vaseline on with
Lori D. -Jan 09, 2015, 6:51PM
Olive oil sounds great but Vaseline is a petroleum based product so I wouldn't advise using that for anything, especially near the eyes. Alba makes a great unpetroleum jelly which is just like Vaseline, only safe to use on your body. http://smile.amazon.com/Alba-Botanica-Un-Petroleum-Multi-Purpose-Jelly/dp/B000OO7546/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1420847417&sr=1-1&keywords=alba+unpetroleum+jelly

Post image for Going Makeup-Free – For The First Time In 11 Years

Ever since I discovered the joys of mascara and eyeliner back in middle school, I’ve worn makeup every day. Every single day for the past 11 years — except for a small handful of times when I was sick or just wasn’t leaving the house. I love makeup. I think it’s so much fun getting all dolled up, or even just adding a touch of blush here and a little mascara there to draw some attention to some of my features.

What I don’t love, however, is the feeling that I need to wear makeup. I know that beauty comes from within and that I’m still me no matter what product is on my face, but somehow over the years I seem to have developed a dependency on it. Read more »

Every year during the month of February I go makeup-less partly because it's the shortest month, and partly because it's the month of love, not just to others, but also towards oneself
CC -Jan 31, 2014, 8:16PM
It's a Friday night & I am reading old posts- LOL. I absolutely love this article. It is so real & embodies exactly what Free People is about. My Monday will be sans makeup. Thanks for the post- so authentic!

Post image for 4 Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

There are so many products available these days to whiten your teeth, but they can be incredibly pricey. I’ve tried certain methods, but the results never seem to last (which probably also has to do with the amount of coffee I drink). Read more »

Great post Julia. These common sense and simple remedies are awesome. Thanks
Manjitsingh Bhalla -Jun 08, 2015, 1:19AM
Over pricey teeth whitening products, it’s ever appreciable if one approaches some sort of home-based natural method. Fruits containing vitamin C thrashing away teeth plaque, just superb! Fibrous vegetables cleaning away mouth organism and excessive food should be consumed often. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide achieves desirable result too.

Post image for Hair Love: Accessorizing The Low Bun

Lately we are all about the low bun here at Free People. I love the effortless look of hair pulled back and knotted in a messy bun at the back of the neck – and how it appears very chic and put-together at the same time. To create a little more interest, I love adding in accessories like hair combs and bun picks. Read more »

Please Please do a video on how to 'bun' your hair..I have been wanting to wear it for so long but my medium length curly hair just does stay put in a bun.

I love this idea. I have scraps left of two old blushes that I hate to just throw out: Nars Orgasm and Bobbi Brown pale pink. These will make tinted lip glosses. Thanks for the post!
