9 New Beauty Products You Have to Get Your Hands On In September

Every time September rolls around, I'm filled with mixed emotions. There's the inevitable sadness that ros&‌egrave; season is coming to an end, but then there's that "back-to-school" excitement that comes with the start of a new season. And even though I'm long past actually going back to school, those September vibes always make me want to stock my beauty stash with lots of fresh new goodies. Conveniently, September is when most companies launch their fall products, so there's no shortage to choose from. I narrowed it down to nine, including (spoiler alert) everything from brightening eye patches that work in minutes to a liquid liner like you've never seen before. Forget the pens and pencils, this is the kind of shopping you should be doing this month.   read more


13 Women Who DGAF About Dark Circles -- and Why You Shouldn't Either

How to Get Your Flip-Flop-Battered Feet Pretty Again

Sandals -- they're stylish, they're easy, they're so much more comfortable than a pair of stilettos. But a long summer of open shoes and flat soles can leave your feet in need of serious T.L.C.

How Becoming a Beauty Editor Taught Me to Embrace My Makeup-Free Face

There I sat, a 25-year-old beauty editor living in the fashion and beauty capital of the world, looking at my profile picture and briefly wondering if I'd really go through with it. There once was a time not too long ago when the idea of posting my bare face to Instagram -- land of unrealistic beauty standards and perfectly Facetuned Insta-models -- was unthinkable. No-makeup selfies were for celebrities with perfect skin only. At least, that's how I felt. But, like I said, that was then, so I proudly pressed 'post' -- and felt no regret. You see, nowadays, I have a genuine belief that beauty isn't so much about unicorn highlighters and a perfect cut crease (though I love those too). When I look in the mirror, what I regard as beautiful is a strong sense of self and an appreciation for my natural features. I hope one day this will be the accepted and appreciated norm for all women.   read more


I Meditated Every Day for a Month to Get My Anxious Mind to STFU

It was my favorite part of yoga: savasana -- or as I liked to think of it, "supervised napping." A soft, pleasing song played from the speakers in the front of the studio, and the smell of lavender permeated the air, as my limber teacher instructed the class to relax our bodies and quiet our minds.   read more

Whether you've had a baby, lost weight or simply grown during your lifetime, chances are you have stretch marks -- and that you've tried to hide them at some point.

16 Genius Storage Solutions for Teeny-Tiny Bathrooms

It used to be that organizing sprees were confined to a single season.

Once upon a time, April showers brought freshly washed pavements and newly sparkling drawer corners.   read more


Fake News Exists in the Beauty World, Too. Don't Believe These Viral Headlines

Sorry, Mr. President: When it comes to fake news, CNN is not the problem. But the internet is pretty rife with inaccurate, sensationalist content. In the shadow of the 2016 election, fake news with political motivations has gotten a lot of attention and media coverage, raising our collective awareness of the insidiousness of false news content.
