Everyone buys beauty products all the time, so why not buy some that support a cause?!
Especially as women, it’s more important now than ever to support one another in whatever way we can.
One of the easiest (and most fun!) ways to do this is by purchasing usual beauty products that support breast cancer.
There are so many to choose from, at all different price points. This makes it beyond easy to pick up these products!
From Scunci hair elastics to Conair brushes, from Aveda hand cream to the Bobbi Brown Pink Peony makeup set, there is bound to be a product you’ll love that will help out in the fight against breast cancer.
Especially around this time of a year, it’s all about giving back! Considering getting a gift for a loved one that will not only make them happy, but do good as well.
The Pantone Color of the Year has been announced and it is…..drumroll please…..emerald!
Emerald is such an elegant color and can be worn in a myriad of ways as far as makeup goes.
One of the cutest ways to rock this glam color is to do up your eyes in emerald shadow. Then, accentuate the color with accent jewelry pieces such as a statement necklace or earrings highlighting the color!
Expect to see emerald all over this upcoming year and be prepared to sport it!
How crazy would you get with your eyeliner? Would you go bold or are you more of a classic kinda gal?
There are some crazy eyeliner trends out there! From wings to electric colors in lieu of your standard black or brown, there are many different ways to wear the liner that are on the rise.
Hyper extended eyeliner on the top lids is a new thing, as is truly bold, thick lines. Even drawn on lashes have been seen on some celebs!
What do you think of this bold and sometimes crazy trend? Are you a fan or does it have you saying “No way!”?!
Especially with the holidays coming up, a great color to adorn your eyes with is gold. Not only is gold a hot look, but it’s also as fabulous as can be, for several reasons at that!
First of all, it will warm up any skin tone. Next, it has many colors that accent it well, for instance a bright red lipstick is a great pairing or even fuchsia pink cheeks.
Gold can also be used to make a statement or portray a more subtle and flirty look, if that’s what you’re going for. This look can be sheer and glittery or have more of a copper, metallic feel. However you choose to wear the gold, be sure to rock it and show it off this season!
