long_wear_gluten_free_eyeshadow

Right now, here in Austin, TX, it's an absolute blaze of muggy heat. If you're walking out your door, expect to sweat and glisten like you basically just took a shower. Expect to wipe droplets from your brow and feel a river run down your [...]

Summer is HERE and it's absolutely brutal. Here in Texas, we're frying alive in the blistering rays of the sun. Tonight it's in the upper 90's until the sun goes down. No joke. With all this insane heat, it's time to really pack on the [...]

velvetlippencils

Picture this: Colorful, polished, velvety soft lips. Gracefully cheery vanilla scent. Effortless lasting power. All through the work of a single product. Yep. This exists. Had someone described this to me, I would have told them it was my dream product. But I had no [...]

skincare2016

As cheesy as the New Year's mantras end up sounding ("New year, new you!", "Out with the old and in with the new!"), there's actually a glimmer of truth to them. Fresh years always turn our minds towards fresh starts, and motivate us to make [...]

Where is it!? I dug frantically through my makeup bag as the buildings outside the car flew past. "I could have sworn I packed it. It's not here!" "What's not there?" "Mascara! I forgot mascara!" If I didn't need gluten free makeup, this event would [...]

youthfulglow

There’s no such thing as a Fountain of Youth. Everyone wants to sell you some variation of it. Something that will keep you “young” forever. Something that erases all time. Freezes it eternally. But it’s not possible to freeze time.

val15featpost

This Valentine's Day, what are you going to do to make sure it's an amazing day? You could do the normal stuff, like buying cards, giving chocolate and sending greetings over social media. But maybe you've already done all that. Or maybe the normal doesn't [...]
