Bought it From Birchbox: W3LL People 
Today’s post is life changing the same way finding out Lindsey Lohan wasn’t a twin after seeing Parent Trap for the seventeenth time was. Except this time, there will be no, “My whole life is a lie” statements made. Or tears. Am I right ladies? I secretly thought the Lohan twins were a thing just like the Olsens. And we see how that turned out. 
W3LL People is a Birchbox featured brand of epic proportions. Super natural ingredients like aloe, green tea, and chamomile make these stick-form products really great for your skin.
The Narcissist Foundation + Concealer earns its title as it’s the creamiest and easiest to use foundation of life. It’s great applied directly to skin and blended in either with your fingers or a brush. And it’ll give you a natural look that doesn’t feel too heavy.
{Pro tip: Swipe a darker shade right inside your cheekbones for an effortless contour. The stick form makes it the perfect fit!} 
Also in the collection is the Universalist Multi-Use Colorstick. Once again, this product is made up of all natural ingredients with no extra chemicals or dyes. Perfect for cheeks and lips, it’ll give you a natural flush that says, “I woke up like this.”
These products are new staples in my collection, perfect for summer traveling because of the compact packaging and no-mess stick form! What say you, beauties?

How to Look Like You Aren’t Wearing Any Makeup: Guest Blogger

Raw and honest, Rachel Wilkerson’s blog, The Life & Lessons of Rachel Wilkerson, is captivating and heartfelt. Covering the trials and tribulations of her personal life, her blog gives advice on everything from the serious (like moving house, which is so stressful) to the mundane (fun nail art!) and everything in between. We appreciate anyone that keeps it real the way she does, so we’re excited to have her as this week’s guest blogger. 

How many of us were told when we first started wearing makeup that the secret is to make it look like you aren’t wearing any makeup at all? Trouble is, that’s much harder to do than it sounds. But after years of trying (and not always being so subtle), I’ve learned how to pull off the natural look in a way that appears healthy, bright-eyed, and pulled-together. Here are some of my tips:

Are Parabens Safe? FDA & Cosmetic Ingredient Review Say Yes

Photo: Avomeen

There’s a longstanding debate in the beauty world about the perils of parabens. Found in everything from toothpaste to moisturizers, these chemicals act as preservatives to prevent the growth of microbes and bacteria in products. But parabens in their isolated form also have estrogen-like qualities. First introduced in 1984, they came under attack when a 2004 study detected them in breast cancer tissue (though the study didn’t establish any causal connection). Some ingredient watchdogs continue to argue that parabens should be avoided at all costs, while others say it’s perfectly safe to use products containing small doses of parabens. So should you be worried? Probably not. Click through to learn why!
