As we move toward a healthier, chemical-free, organic and natural lifestyle, swapping out our beauty products is often the hardest part of the change. Just because you want a healthier life doesn’t mean aren’t going to be a Bombshell. You need cosmetics that perform as promised while remaining free of all those unpronounceable ingredients.
Everything about winter is fierce, from the frigid, whipping wind to the frenzied holiday shoppers shoving their way through crowds in search of the perfect gift. Not surprising that the look of the season follows suit—with bold colors blasting away the boring browns and burnt umbers of autumn and striking, shimmery accents signaling true style in the sea of black coats and boots.
Mascara is a must for me, thanks to my nearly invisible blonde lashes. But determining which product works best can be a bit confusing. Especially when conventional cosmetics companies seem to tout every new mascara as a miracle product that will make your lashes 3 times longer, instantly! What I’ve learned from my research and experience is that not only do many conventional mascara products fall short on those promises, they’re also full of chemicals that may be hazardous to your health.
It’s time to ditch your drugstore mascara and check out my tips, techniques and top natural picks for longer-looking, luscious lashes.
At the end of a long day, you know what you need to do: take it off, take it all off. I’m not talking about your clothes (although you probably don’t want to go to bed fully clothed.) I’m talking about your makeup.
Cosmetics might make your eyes pop and your lips shine during the day, but if you don’t remove every speck at night, you could end up clogging your pores and getting blemishes. Of course a new breakout will mean needing to cake on more concealer the next day, giving you more to remove at night or else risking more blemishes the next day. It’s a viscous cycle!
It’s time to stop the madness. Here’s a guide to removing makeup the right way, and also a shortcut for those nights when you get home late and just want to collapse in bed—and worry about the mascara smudges on the pillow in the morning.
Every bride wants to channel her inner Bombshell on the day of her wedding, but it can be hard to find products that are safe while still providing long lasting and flawless beauty. I’ve rounded up some stellar organic makeup and beauty products to take the stress out of achieving wedding day perfection.
By the end of the day, your bed starts to look like a mini paradise waiting for you at the end of the hall. But before you can cozy in, there are still a few things you need to do. Lock the doors, switch off the lights and—oh yeah—get that stiffened mascara, smudged eyeliner and smeared foundation off your face.
When something isn’t working right, are you quick to throw in the towel or do you take a step back, roll up your sleeves and start digging for a solution? For me, quitting is never an option. So when I spend my hard-earned money on fancy new hair products or special anti-aging serums and they don’t work the magic the labels claim they will—I don’t toss them in the trash. I also don’t call the company to complain (not yet, anyway).
