Rain boots have become as much a fashion statement as mules in recent years — and Hunter Boots have a lot to do with the shift from utilitarian to ubiquitous trend. The Wellington boot has roots in Scotland, where the first design was released way back in 1856. It has been a top choice for royals like Princess Diana and supermodels like Kate Moss, who you might say put the Wellies trend on the map when she wisely wore a pair of knee-length green Hunter boots with a teeny, tiny dress at the Glastonbury festival. There are plenty of reasons to love Hunter boots. Their rain boots styles range from classic tall boots to short boots, adjustable, technical, and even Chelsea boots. The brand never stops expanding its line of shades and you can score Hunter boots in every color from baby blue to camo. There’s just one thing we don’t adore about Hunter: a pair of quality boots can easily run you $150 or more. If that’s not in the cards any time soon, don’t despair because these five Hunter boots knock-offs are just as cute and functional. 1) Target Women’s Classic Knee High Rain Boots They have a no-slip lug sole, a high gloss finish, and will keep the rain away like nobody’s business — these are the black knee high rain boots that will go with every outfit you have, but also add a slight kick to plain jeans and a T-shirt. With styles that range from $20 to $40 you can’t beat the price. One reviewer who says she owns Hunter boots raves about these boots, saying they have a cushioned insole that’s similar to Hunter — be sure to order up because they run large. 2) Capelli Boots These Capelli knee-high rain boots, which will set you back just $35, are made from 100 percent rubber and protect your feet from all of the elements — even puddles. The interior shade matches the exterior and the gorgeous, lush red hue is on-trend this season. 3) Kamik Women’s Jennifer Rain Boot If you yearn for the color selection that Hunter offers, you’ll love Kamik’s mid-calf Jennifer rain boot. It comes in 15 colors like periwinkle, turquoise, charcoal, and viola, and features a small 0.5” heel for just a bit of height. It has a wingtip foot, logoed shield at the shaft, and a safe and secure rubber sole. These boots also have close to 3,000 reviews from people who say they can stand up to snow, mud, and ice. Expect to spend between $25 and $90 on a pair. 4) Twisted Drizzy Tall Rubber Rain Boots With a durable rubber sole and adjustable buckle, these sassy mid-calf rain boots stand apart from others because of their easy fit and fashionable color and design selection. In addition to choosing among shades like green, blue, and pink, you have the option of having fun with multicolored boots and even polka dots. Go wild — each pair costs just $3. 5) Joules Welly Print Rain Boot These pretty print rain boots have a slight platform rubber sole that measures 0.5 inches. They run between $29 and $97 and are super comfortable, thanks to an expanding inset with an adjustable buckle strap.

Gigi Hadid can do no wrong when it comes to her fashion and beauty, so it's no surprise that the supermodel's namesake makeup collection with Maybelline is perfection. Details on the Gigi x Maybelline Collection have been kept under wraps, but the brand has been treating fans to some surprise launches this month, starting with the Gigi x Maybelline Jetsetter Palette. Now, fans have a new drop to look forward to: the Gigi x Maybelline East Coast Glam Collection. It'll be available on Oct. 22 exclusively at Ulta.com, and we are SO excited! So, what's in the Gigi x Maybelline East Coast Glam Collection? It's a 14-piece collection comprised of products for your face, eyes, and lips. It's got a tinted primer and a iridescent liquid strobe, warm and cool eye contour palettes, an eye contour brush, a black fiber mascara, black liquid eyeliner, black gel eyeliner, three matte lipsticks, and 3 lip liners. Wow, it looks like Hadid has got every makeup product covered! The collection is inspired by Hadid's go-to products for when she's hitting up the East Coast. She "designed the East Coast Glam Collection as the ultimate expression of her New York lifestyle, with products that easily transform your look from morning meetings to a night out," according to Maybelline. Hadid also noted that the products are super buildable and long-lasting, so wearers can be confident that they'll be serving up some glam all day long. "The Gigi x Maybelline East Coast Glam products, sold separately, can be used and added-on throughout the day for one of my favorite chic & badass day-to-night looks," the supermodel said via Instagram. We're super excited to see that there will be lipsticks in Hadid's new collection. Makeup lovers can choose between the collection's three nude shades: Taura, McCall, and Erin. There are also matching lip liner available, ensuring that everyone can get Hadid's perfect supermodel pout. There's also some pretty impressive eyeshadow palettes that we're excited to try. The warm and cool eye contour palettes are comprised of five shades that perfectly encapsulate the East Coast vibes. We also love that the collection features a brush, so this way we know that we're using the right tools to achieve Hadid's glam. Also, who knew that eye contouring was a thing? Both of these palettes will give you a runway-ready smoky eye that you can wear all day to any event. Pair these shades with the East Coast Glam mascara and gel liner, and you have got yourself a L-O-O-K. The East Coast Glam Collection joins the Gigi x Maybelline Jetsetter Palette, which brought together all of Hadid's travel glam necessities in one compact and convenient palette. To no surprise, the Jetsetter Palette sold out almost immediately once it hit the shelves -- it actually sold out in 90 minutes, according to Marie Claire! Based on the success of that launch, we're sure that the East Coast Glam Collection is going to sell out, too! In fact, it might sell out even faster, so you better make sure you've added its Oct. 22 release date to your calendars! [Photo: Instagram]
Ever get tired of buying facial wipes? Of course, they're expensive! Though, you have to keep restocking them in your cabinets because you need them, especially if you're a makeup addict. But if you want to save some serious cash, try making your own cleansing facial wipes. It's actually pretty simple and easy to do. Start off by figuring out which material you want to work with. Depending on weather or not you want a reusable option or a more disposable item, pick the medium and cut the material (towel, wash cloths, cotton rounds, or paper towels) up into smaller strips. Next, make your own custom solution. For your base formula, all you need is boiled or distilled water, coconut oil, and a gentle cleanser like baby wash. Mix the water and add a few tablespoons of the coconut oil and your choice of cleanser. From there, you can personalize your solution and add in other ingredients such as essential oils or aloe to fit your specific skincare needs. Once you have your mix, soak your cut up strips in the solution, and you've made your very own cleansing facial wipes! Since you'll be making these in bulk, an empty mason jar is the perfect tool to store your wipes in. [Photo: Shutterstock]

As soon as the weather drops below 70, I'm one of those people perpetually wrapped in a scarf or blanket. The cold weather just doesn't agree with me and nothing suffers more than my hands. Between washing them multiple times each day and the dry air, my hands are need serious TLC the moment it stops feeling like summer. Luckily, I recently got to try Aveda's Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme and it was like the angels from heaven heard my cries. This hand cream is incredible. I keep a bottle on my desk and every time I wash my hands, then lather them down, I'm amazed by how quickly it absorbs. There's absolutely no greasy residue, but it does leave my hands super soft. What I love most, though, is that it doesn't have a super sweet scent like most hand lotions. Instead, the rosemary mint combo is nice, invigorating and subtle. I actually find myself applying it even when my hands aren't dry because I find the scent so refreshing. Bonus: The smaller size is perfect to keep in your handbag and it's only $9! Get one ASAP!

Sadly, there’s no gym where you can go to pump up your eyelashes until they’re a mile long, full and lush. But we’re miles ahead of where we were years ago when it comes to what we now know about our lashes and how to care for them — and, yes, how to DIY eyelash growth and make them stronger and longer. Genetics will always determine the density and color of your lashes (and that’s what a great mascara is for) but there are several steps you can take in the comfort of your home to strengthen your eyelashes and prevent shedding. These 5 eyelash growth tips are simple to follow and include both products that can make a huge difference in your lashes and reminders about what not to do if your goal is longer eyelashes. 1) Create A Natural Lash-Boosting Serum With Castor Oil Of all of the essential oils that we celebrate, none receive quite as much respect when it comes to what they can do for eyelash growth as castor oil. This thick oil, which can be found at an affordable price online or at a health food store, can be applied nightly to bare lashes as a conditioning treatment. It has been shown to be effective in promoting lash growth, preventing breakage, and even helping lashes grow in previously sparse areas. Be patient, though — it may take several months to notice results. 2) Wash Off All Of Your Eye Makeup Remember when you were a kid and you were told to wash off all of your makeup before bed in order to prevent pores from getting clogged and causing acne? Well, someone should have mentioned that gently removing mascara and eye makeup with an oil-based cleanser is an important step in maintaining beautiful and strong eyelashes, as well. Makeup, particularly waterproof mascara, can weaken lashes and make them brittle (and possibly cause breakage) when left on overnight. The double cleansing method, which calls for cleaning your face first with an oil cleanser and second with a water-based cleansed, ensures you have removed all traces of makeup from your lashes. 3) Eat Plenty Of Foods With Omega-3 Fatty Acids Foods like fatty fish and walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids that you should definitely include in your diet if you’re trying to DIY eyelash growth. This nutrient has anti-inflammatory properties that open hair follicles and help prevent hair shedding — including in your lashes. 4) Go Easy On The Fake Lashes We love faux lashes as much as the next person, and they offer a simple way to elevate your look to more dramatic proportions in just seconds. But relying on fake lashes each day can weaken your natural lashes — tugging and pulling and constant glue applications is less than ideal if you want to strengthen your lashes. 5) Try A Lash Serum Lash serums have come a long, long way in recent years. There are quite a few on the market, so be sure to do your research to find the best one for you, but most boast peptides and collagen and can be applied nightly or in place of ordinary mascara. LashFood Conditioning Drama Mascara is an extremely popular choice that replaces your ordinary mascara with one that features a strengthening nano-peptide complex and nourishing essential oils and plant extracts.
