When it comes to makeup, bronzer can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Used correctly, it can add a lovely, natural-looking glow to your already gorgeous face and fake a sun-kissed look without the risk of sunburn. Used incorrectly? Have you ever seen an episode of “Jersey Shore”? (A show for the ages, yes, but not when it comes to properly applying makeup.)
Aside from making any product it’s added to an absolutely gorgeous shade of aquamarine, blue tansy oil is also a serious skincare ingredient that seems to be popping up everywhere these days.

Listen, there’s no one “right” way to shower (though I can think of a few very wrong ways to do it). The beauty of your daily shower is that it’s YOU time: no one can bug you or ask things of you — it is a few precious minutes all to yourself to reflect, recharge, recoup and, of course, get clean.
Take a look at any “healthiest foods” list, and chances are high that certain seafood will be somewhere near the top. Not only are creatures of the deep (and not so deep) excellent sources of much of what you need for a healthy, balanced diet, they also crush it as far as skincare is concerned. Healthy fats your skin needs to stay plump? Fish. Inflammation-fighting antioxidants? Algae. Naturally-occurring moisturizers? Seaweed. Anti-aging and bone-health fortifying collagen?

When it comes to your daily matcha lattes, the ladies of The Setting know it’s sometimes as much about the cup as what’s in the cup.
