These Overnight Eye Masks Really Make Your Skin Brighter And Less Puffy
My one weakness when it comes to skincare? Eye masks. I am always buying and trying new eye masks to see which help my dark undereyes the most. One of my latest favorites? Musely's Hydrogel Eye Masks.
What makes these different than the rest? You can sleep in them! Yes, really! Unlike other skincare products that you need to wait and rinse within a few minutes, these masks work their magic while you sleep. Simply cleanse your skin before you go to bed, apply the masks before bed and then remove once you wake up. Just apply some serum and you're good to. The result when you wake up? Brighter and more hydrated under eyes.
Even better, these eye masks also help to reduce under eye bags and wrinkles. Could you ask for anything more?
If you want to say goodbye to puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles (like me!), then you need these masks in your life. Get a pack of 10 for just $39.

Here’s How To Ensure Your Makeup Stays Put, Even On The Hottest, Most Humid Summer Days
Wondering how to make your makeup last all day long? I have the solution! These two amazing products from Smashbox are all you need: the Photo Finish Foundation Primer and the Photo Finish Primer Water.
I used to not believe in using makeup primer; I mean, how much can one product really do? Well, I can admit now that I was oh so wrong.
The first thing I put on my face every day is the Photo Finish Primer Water. It is such a cool, refreshing feeling and really helps hydrate your skin before applying makeup. I also love that you can apply this water over makeup and use it as a mid-day makeup refresher.
After the Primer Water, I moisturize my face and follow up with the Photo Finish Foundation Primer. You can actually feel this primer smoothing out your skin as you apply it and it makes for easy and beautiful makeup application. What's more is it also helps your makeup last for hours! Really!
If you're tired of feeling like your makeup is melting off your face after a summer commute, you need to add these two products to your makeup routine ASAP. You'll be hooked in no time.

This Is The Best Drugstore Shampoo And Conditioner Combo For Frizzy Hair
Are you looking for hair salon results without breaking the bank? I'm here to fill you in on my absolute favorite shampoo and conditioner from the drugstore. The Maui Moisture Vanilla Bean Shampoo and Conditioner are made specifically for frizzy, unruly hair and let me tell you, they're miracle workers. My mom and I are both "blessed" with super frizzy hair that is so hard to manage no matter how much product we use. This shampoo and conditioner, though?! Changed the game for both of us!
Obviously, anything with Maui in the name is bound to smell divine and these products are no exception. Scent aside, though, they actually smooth my hair unlike anything I've ever tried. I even let my hair air dry, which I rarely ever do because of the frizz factor, and my strands were still super sleek.
Another reason I love this shampoo and conditioner duo? It's sulfate-free, which means it's safe to use on my keratin-treated hair and also on color-treated hair.
You're probably thinking products like this sound expensive, but these goodies retail for just $8 each. Pretty incredible, right?! Given that we're in the height of summer heat and humidity, right now is the perfect time to put Maui Moisture to the test.

4 Ways To Instantly Soften And Soothe Dry Hair #SHEfindsSolutions
Nobody wants dry, crispy hair. But sometimes you can't help it. Things like just being outside in the sun all day or too many dips in salty sea water can take a toll on your locks. Luckily, there are ways to make your hair smooth and soft once again. Try our four go-to techniques, outlined below:
Tip 1: Start to use a shampoo that is formulated for dry hair. Alterna's Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo gives your hair the hydration it needs.
Tip 2: Try a hair mask. Simply apply when your hair is damp and allow it to sit for 5-7 minutes before rinsing it out.
Tip 3: Use a hair serum. Palmer's Coconut Oil Serum not only has coconut oil that is naturally healthy for the hair but also contains Vitamin E.
Tip 4: Try taking a break from using heat on your hair. If you still need to blow dry your hair, use a heat protectant and dry the hair using the lowest, cool setting.

If You Weren’t Born With Naturally Glowy Skin, Pixi’s Glow Booster Is The Next Best Thing
If you keep with the latest beauty trends, then you probably know that glowy skin is totally in right now. If you weren't blessed with a naturally lit-from-within complexion, all hope isn't lost. There are several to achieve the look using products. Some women opt to use highlighter, but my preference is definitely illuminator, namely Pixi by Petra's Glow Booster!
So what makes this Pixi illuminator so special? It is basically a liquid highlighter than you can use many different ways. If you are going makeup-less for the day, but still want a nice glow, you can use it on the skin just by itself. Or, you can mix it in with your liquid foundation to get an even all over glow without applying highlighter. It even doubles as a primer. Score!
The best part? This product comes in a trio set with other products that enhance your glowy look. When you buy the set you will also receive a blush duo and a LipLift Max in shade Honey Sheen.

Once And For All, Here’s How To Apply Eyeliner If You Have A Shaky Hand #SHEfindsSolutions
If you have shaky hands, certain things like painting your nails or applying a straight swipe of eyeliner can be a hassle. But we're here to help! Achieving a flawless wing is totally possible, yes even if you have an unsteady hand. How, you're wondering? Here are five tips and tricks that will help you apply straight and precise liner.

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Micellar Water Is A Cleanser, Toner And Makeup Remover All In One!
Summer is great, but all that time spent outside can definitely take a toll on your skin. In addition to the sun exposure, you also have to be cautious of all the environmental aggressors that can cause harm to your skin. That's why I'm loving Effaclar Micellar Water from La Roche-Posay these days. It's been a great addition to my summer skincare routine because it removes microscopic dust and pollution particles without drying out my skin at all.
The beauty of this Micellar Water is that it can be used as a rinse free cleanser, a toner and a makeup remover. Who doesn't love multi-use products?!

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Exfoliating Coconut Sugar Skin Scrub
Everyone needs a good skin scrub. It keeps your skin healthy and moisturized, and it's especially helpful during the summer when you're out in the sun so much and probably dealing with peeling. But before you shell out cash on fancy body scrub, why not consider making your own? It's easier than you think and the formula below is great to keep in your shower whenever you need some extra exfoliation.
My go-to skin scrub on required two ingredients (really!): granulated sugar and coconut oil. To create a small portion of this scrub, use 4 tablespoons of sugar and combine with a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil. The reason this oil is perfect for a scrub is because it hardens in a colder temperature, but will immediately soften on contact to rub right into your skin. It also makes the perfect skin scrub because the sugar will remove dry, dead skin, but the coconut oil will hydrate at the same time. Also, the sugar crystals are small enough so as not to be super harsh on sensitive skin. This stuff really is amazing! I always have some on hand.
Pro Tip: This scrub also makes for a sweet gift if you're on a budget. Just package it up in a cute, tiny mason jar and tie it with a bow!

Once And For All, Here’s How To Do The Winged Eyeliner Tape Trick #YouCanDoIt
When many women here the words 'winged eyeliner,' they instantly shudder. We all have a horror story about trying to create the perfect thin, straight line that flicks up at just the right angle.
Chances are, you've probably read about using clear tape to create the perfect wing, but wondered, "Does that really work?" Well we're here to prove it does! Take a look at the step by step below for how to successfully use the tape trick for creating the perfect winged eyeliner look.
Step 1: Take a piece of clear tape this is about 2 inches long and place it diagonally from the the outer corner of your eye to the end of your eyebrow.
Step 2: Using a liquid eyeliner, find the point you want the wing to end and trace the tape with the liner down to the outer corner of your eye.
Step 3: At the end of the wing you just drew, draw a line closer to your lid (both lines should look like a V shape)
Step 4: Fill in the V shape you drew and take the line across the lid to the inner corner of your eye.
Step 5: Once you have completed your eyeliner and it has dried, remove the tape gently.
That's it! Within 5 minutes, you will have a winged eyeliner that looks like Adele's makeup artist did it!

How To Fix Chipped Nail Polish Without Getting A Whole New Manicure #SHEfindsSolutions
There is nothing more frustrating than getting a manicure--or doing one yourself--and having it chip within a couple days. Ugh!
The fact of the matter is, however, sometimes there's just no avoiding. But instead of going overboard and booking a whole new mani appointment for one small chip, get creative girl! Here are four quick and easy ways to fix chipped polish without having to start from scratch.
Tip 1: If the chip is on the end of your nail, try clipping the nail down to remove the chip and re-filing.
Tip 2: If the chip is in a different area, use a toothpick to dab a tiny amount of nail polish over the chip then let it dry. If needed, use a buffer to smooth it out.
Tip 3: If the chip is small, use glitter polish to go over it and create an accent nail. Don't forget to paint the same nail on the other hand!
Tip 4: If the chip is on the larger side, put some clear tape on the part of the nail that is fine and paint over the chip with the original color. Once that section is dry, remove the tape and cover your entire nail with a layer of top coat.

NARS’ Sheer Glow Is The Best Foundation For Women With Dry Skin (Like Me)
I have really dry skin which makes finding a foundation that offers good coverage, but doesn't flake off really difficult. Obviously, in need of all the help I could get, I went into my local Sephora to get matched. After the Sephora employee tested 4 different brands that didn’t have a shade light enough for my skin (yes, I'm that pale), she took me over to the NARS section to check out Sheer Glow. I had heard and read really good things about it, so I was actually excited. And the fact that they had a shade that matched me was a miracle!
My favorite thing about the NARS Sheer Glow? It doesn't look cakey or flakey (the two no-no's of foundation) and the coverage is buildable, which is perfect because I can wear light makeup to work or for running errands, but get a fuller face when I'm going out at night. Even better, a little bit of this product goes such a long way so one bottle lasts for months. When I'm done applying my makeup, my skin looks flawless, smooth and my complexion looks so even and glowy--all thanks to NARS Sheer Glow. You've got to get your hands on a bottle; I promise it won't disappoint! For me, it was definitely love at first use.

NuReveal’s Young Coconut Face And Body Scrub Is Better Than A Day At The Spa #Facts
If your skin is dry and rough no matter how much moisturizer you apply, I found a solution: NuReveal Organics' Young Coconut Face & Body Scrub. Bonus? It's totally organic!
I've tried tons of body scrubs in the past that just didn't do the job quite right. They were either too rough on my skin, didn't actually scrub off anything or they left my skin feeling super dry afterwards. Not good.
Luckily, NuReveal's Young Coconut Face & Body Scrub isn't like any of those others. It's made from organic coconut oil, neem seed oil, Vitamin E and rosemary leaf extract and yes, it smells divine. Even better, it leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and soft. I used this scrub to remove dead skin on my legs before applying self tanner and it worked wonder. The tanner went on evenly because my legs were super moisturized and exfoliated thanks to the scrub.
Best of all, this scrub is so gentle that it can also be used on your face. If your skin is looking a little dull, a little dollop of this amazing scrub will have you glowing in no time!

Onomie’s A.C.E. Illuminating Eye Treatment Is Hands Down The Best Highlighter For Newbies
Despite highlighter being one of the buzziest beauty products over the last few years, I've always been terrified to try it. The last thing I want to look like is that I've rubbed glitter all over my face. But when my friends at Onomie suggested I give their A.C.E Illuminating Eye Treatment a try, I decided, "What the heck, let's do it!"
One month later and I haven't left home a day without applying this stuff. It's so good! I've been using Piscopia, a universal champagne shimmery shade, and it really and truly works wonders on my skin. I apply a swipe above my cheekbones, a swipe under my eyebrows, a swipe down my nose and a dab in the corners of my eyes and wowza! My skin honestly looks like it's been touched by fairies (that's a good thing, FYI).
What I love most about this highlighter is that you don't have to be a pro or use a lot to make an impact. It's subtle, so even if you use just a little, you'll definitely get lit from within glowy skin. This stuff is so good that I even wear it on days I'm not wearing any other makeup. I carry it with me everywhere and whenever my skin needs a little boost, I swipe some on.
No matter your feelings on highlighter and Insta makeup, you need to give this product a try. It's the truth!

The Scary Downside To Blood Facials That No One Talks About
I Tried The Juvalips Natural Lip Plumper And This Is What Happened
Like a lot of women, I have always wanted plumper, fuller lips. I mean, my upper lip is almost non-existent. I would never consider lip injections (Needles in my lips? No, thank you!), but that doesn't mean I'm just accepting my thin lips. While it may be hard to find natural ways to make your lips look fuller, they do exist. Case in point: the Juvalips Natural Lip Plumper.
Not gonna lie, I was very hesitant when I first found out about the product. But ladies, it actually works! How? All you do is put in one of the replaceable felt liners, press it gently against your lips, then turn it on. Within 1-2 minutes (60 seconds at a time) you will have fuller looking lips for hours. See for yourself:
One note of caution: I kind of went a little overboard when I first got it and used it more than the suggested two times. The result? I bruised my underlip. And that is why you follow directions.
If you are looking for a natural way to get fuller, plumper lips that you can do right at home, this is the tool for you. It's so easy and effective, it's a no-brainer.

How To Do A Gorgeous Smokey Eye In Less Than Five Minutes
Have a summer event to attend or date you really want to impress? A good smokey eye is your best bet. Not only is it super versatile, but it's also shockingly easy to do. Yes, it does require more than one eyeshadow color and brush, but no worries. We are here to break it down for you.
Step 1: Using a fluffier brush, apply a medium toned eyeshadow color in the crease of your eyelid.
Step 2: Once that is blended, put a color that is a little bit darker right under that crease as a transition shade.
Step 3: In the outer V of your eyelid, blend in a dark eyeshadow shade.
Step 4: Go back over all the three shades with a blending brush so you don't have any harsh lines
Step 5: In the center of your lid and towards the inner corner of your eye, use a lighter shade to make your eyes pop.
Step 6: Using the same shade you put on the outer V, use an eyeliner brush to lightly add some to under your bottom water line.
And you're done! In no time you will have a gorgeous smokey eye that will look stunning in selfies.

The Scary Reason You Need To Change The Way You Part Your Hair, According To A Stylist
I Tried A $200 Eye Treatment Duo And Yes, It’s Worth Every Penny
Most people know Brilliance NY for their hair tools; their curling wands are next level.
But did you know they also sell skincare products? And they're amazing.
Because I know prevention is key, I am always looking for ways to treat my undereye area. I'm trying to ward off dark circles and fine lines for as long as possible. I recently came across Brillance NY's eye treatment duo, I decided to give it a try. And I'm so glad I did.
The duo is simple, a serum and a cream that you use together. First, you apply the serum under your eyes and on your lids. Once it has completely absorbed, you apply the eye cream in the same spots. That's it. The serum acts as a firming agent, while the cream helps to lift the eye area. Both products are infused with diamond and caviar to lock in moisture, increase elasticity and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Could you ask for anything more?!
I've been using the duo for a few days now, and no joke, my undereye looks brighter and more smooth. I'm hooked!

3 All-Natural Headache Cures That Work Almost Instantly #WellnessWednesday
Headaches are the worst. And if you suffer often, loading yourself up on medication probably doesn't feel so good every single time. Trust me, I know from firsthand experience. That's why I'm sharing three of my go-to ways to cure a headache. Not only are they all natural, but they work quickly!
One of the best ways to cure a headache is to avoid it in the first place. After many grueling migraines, I realized a common theme: most of the time I felt a headache coming on, it's because I waited too long to eat in the morning or I am super dehydrated. Yikes. It almost goes without saying, but it's easy to get caught up in the bustle of every day life and forget to eat breakfast, accidentally skip lunch or not be conscious of drinking enough water throughout the day. Eating and drinking lots of water is an easy pre-emptive headache! Staying hydrated and regularly eating meals (especially breakfast) can help to avoid a headache or if you feel one slightly coming on eating a quick meal or drinking a ton of water might help reverse it or just stop it from getting any worse.
If you have a full blown headache, I feel your pain. A simple way to reverse this headache is to massage your temples with an agent that is known to help headaches. One of the best things you can use is peppermint oil. Peppermint is known to promote blood flow, and is actually a very potent stress relieving scent. If your headache is being caused by stress, peppermint oil is the way to go.
If you don't have peppermint oil, ice can be a quick replacement. Using ice cubes to massage your temples or placing a cold cloth on your head helps distract the horrible feeling in your head, but also cools down the lining of your brain that gets inflamed while you have a migraine or headache.
Remember these things next time you have a migraine, so you don't suffer in silence.

This $6 Brow Kit Is So Good… No Wonder It Has Hundreds Of Five-Star Reviews
I need to tell you guys about a product that actually made me start doing my eyebrows. Yup, I know. Before I found this I only filled my eyebrows in lightly with brown eyeshadow. I know what you’re thinking: why? Because I was lazy and didn't want to compete with the many beauty experts who spent so much time to make their eyebrows look "on fleek."
But take it from me: BH Cosmetics' Flawless Brow Trio is seriously the only thing that you need to do your brows. The kit comes with a tinted wax to ensure your brows stay in place and shaped perfectly. There are also two powders to define and fill-in all those little bald spots. The kit also includes a mini angled brush for perfect product application. Plus, the trio is small, making it perfect for travel or on-the-go brow application. Amazing!

Neutrogena’s Beach Defense Is The Best Sunscreen For A Day In The Sun
As soon as the thermometer hits 85, I only want to be at the beach. It's my happy place. But year after year, I've struggled to find the perfect sunscreen. Sure, I have tons that protect my family and me from sunburns, but they also leave an insane white residue that's impossible to wash off. And good beach day pictures? Forget about it.
And then I tried Neutrogena's Beach Defense sunscreen. Game changer! I should've known that Neutrogena would be the brand to finally get it right. This sunscreen is the. best.
Yesterday was my first beach day of the summer and Beach Defense didn't let me down. As soon as I squeezed some onto my hand, I knew it was going to be good. The formula is unlike any other sunscreen I've tried. Rather than being impossible to rub into your skin, this sunscreen goes on smooth, absorbs fast and leaves no white residue. I honestly couldn't believe my eyes. Even better, this sunscreen is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and oil free. I applied a healthy dose to my face and it didn't leave my skin greasy at all.
The best part of all, though? We were at the beach for over 4 hours, reapplied Beach Defense throughout the day and no sunburns! Take my word for it: you need this sunscreen before your next beach trip.

How To Fix Eyeliner Mistakes Without Starting Over #SHEfindsSolutions
There is nothing better than a sharp and perfect wing. But anyone who's attempted to create one knows it's not always easy to achieve. If you mess up, chances are your first thought is to remove all the eyeliner you already applied and start over. But the fact is, this really isn't the best solution, especially if you're using black or dark eyeliner. Instead, we suggest you follow the tips below when you need to fix your winged eyeliner. You'll never start all over again!
Tip One: Always start thin. If you first apply a thin line and it is not as even or straight as you want, you have room to go over the original line and fix it without having the product cover your whole eyelid.
Tip Two: If you get some eyeliner on your lid or in areas you don't want it, use a pointed Q-tip, dip it into eye makeup remover and take away the unwanted product. If you had eyeshadow on, use a tiny amount to reapply.
Tip Three: If your wing is not as sharp as you want it or you want to clean it up, use some concealer with a flat brush and blend it under the eyeliner.

Glossier’s New Balm Dotcom Flavor Just Might Be The Best Yet…
Let me tell you, I have been celebrating every day like it's my birthday with my new favorite lip balm. If you haven't heard, Glossier just came out with a new Balm Dotcom flavor: Birthday Balm Dotcom!
From the second Glossier announced this delicious treat I knew I had to try it ASAP. I do not regret it. And there are so many reasons why. For one, I love scents like vanilla and this smells just like a vanilla birthday cake. Yum! And it is different from the other Balm Dotcoms because it is clear with a subtle shimmer. I love that it adds shine to your lips, but isn't an over the top glitter like some glosses have. I wear this balm all the time when I'm wearing little to no makeup or don't want overpower my look with a lip color.
Finally, if you're not familiar with the formula, believe me, your lips will stay hydrated for hours! I was pleasantly surprised because a lot of products with shimmer feel rough on your lips, but this doesn't.
Bottom line, if you want to get your hands on a new, really cool product, this is it!
