As soon as we came across Rachel Phipps’ lifestyle, foodie, and travel blog, we knew we were hooked. It sent us down the rabbit hole to The Glossy Guide, a beauty blog created by the British style maven and her best friend. From secret steals to haute products, she’s sharing some of her best insights here with us this week!
Everyone is always going on and on about how you should identify your signature scent, but it’s really more important to find your perfect lipstick. I discovered mine when I was 17 and while I love playing around with bright retro reds, deep vampy burgundies, and pretty pinks, I always go back to my signature shade: MAC’s Satin lipstick in Brave.
Bright lipstick can feel like one of the most daunting beauty products. Not only does it draw extra attention to your face, but one false swipe or unflattering color choice and it seems like your whole look is ruined. That potential for beauty disaster is enough to keep even the most adventurous of makeup lovers (myself included) away from bold lips.
Somehow Laqa & Co. must have heard our lipstick woes when they partnered with us to develop this duo of easy-to-use Lil’ Lip fat lip pencils. These twist-up, mini pencils glide on effortlessly and provide a bright punch of color that amazingly looks great on everyone. And soon you’ll be able to try them for yourselves because some of you will be receiving one of these pencils in your June Birchbox!
I tend to associate custom beauty products with major celebrities and people with far more money than me. A one-of-a-kind product that I created would be fantastic, but I’ve kept that dream on my “If I win the lottery”-list. (I know you have one too.) Well, that was until Bite Beauty came along.
The Canadian beauty brand recently launched their pop-up lipstick lab in New York and I have been freaking out about it ever since. I could make my own lipstick? Right there in the store? For only $28? I had to go.
Yesterday, I finally paid a visit to Bite Lip Lab and it was better than I imagined. In just 7 minutes, the beauty lab techs helped me create a custom lip color that I know I’ll be wearing all summer long.
Come take a digital science field trip with me and read on to see all the photos of how my lipstick was made right before my eyes.
For most of us, prom night is a fuzzy memory marred by not-so-subtle makeup, questionable dresses, and awkward boutonnière-clad dates. Luckily, we’ve grown older, wiser, and more makeup-savvy in the intervening years. For all our readers who are heading to prom this spring, we’re here to offer some fresh ideas and a little guidance. Snag a prom-ready look with these tips and tricks:
Like clockwork, we swap out our heavier foundation for CC cream and our dark jeans for sundresses the moment the temperatures rise above 60 degress. But before you drop the opaque lipstick for a tinted lip balm, consider a new alternative that has us rethinking our beauty routines.
