Beauty Buzz: Petal Perfect
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

flower-fashion-makeupIt’s officially spring.  Fi.nal.ly.  It’s time to swap out the wardrobe and the beauty routine for something lighter and brighter.  No longer will you need to lubricate yourself with heavy creams and deep sultry scents.  Spring is all about being fresh, playful, and pretty.  Thankfully, beauty brands love flowers as much as any girl loves to receive them.  Whether it be harnessing the superpowers of rose petals or the capturing the sweet scent of jasmine, there’s no end to the way in which one can incorporate flora into her regimen.  And and aren’t you just as pretty as a petal?

Beauty Buzz: Shine Bright Like a… Garnet
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

garnet makeupYour clothing isn’t the only place that could benefit from this month’s dedicated color of garnet.  Your eyes, lips, and nails could all also use a healthy dose of the hue.  An update to fire engine red, garnet gives a more goth look to lips, a sultrier shade to your nails, and won’t leave your lids looking like you’ve come down with a case of pink eye.  Use the images above for inspiration and go ahead and give garnet a spot in your makeup bag.

Beauty Buzz: Find the Light
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

metallic eye makeupDuring the holidays and especially with New Year’s Eve quickly creeping ’round the corner, some of us look for ways to amp up our standard makeup routines for swanky evenings out on the town and special seasonal celebrations.  Some may opt for the classic statement making bold lip (good choice) and others go for the more “Golden Girl” approach (also a great choice).  But beauty beware: there is a big difference between glowing like the lights of Paris (the city, not the socialite) and glaring like the neon signs of Las Vegas.  Let’s keep glitter where it belongs: on art projects, Halloween costumes and strippers.  Strippers can wear glitter.

Come to think of it, a guy I was dating once showed up late one night after work, which should have been reason enough to dump him, but he was covered in glitter.  Seeing as he doesn’t work at a Michael’s craft store, he must have procured his shimmering accents somewhere.  Hanging out with another lady is bad enough but, hanging out with another lady who dons glitter is grounds for permanent exile.  But I digress…

To achieve a glowing holiday look, invest in a few beauty products with flecks not flakes of shimmer in them.  You could go for a dramatic foil for your lids, a metallic manicure or something as simple as adding some extra shine to your tresses.  Be sure not to go overboard with your gilded look though.  A gorgeous glow is one thing, but looking like a greased up walrus won’t get your dance card filled up any faster… if at all.

Gift Guide: The Beauty of Giving
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz,Gift Guide

holiday makeupOkay, fine.  She doesn’t quite seem to fit into any of the five gift giving categories from yesterday.  Deep breaths, drama queen.  I have a fairly easy fix, my friend.  There are very few (although, astonishingly, there are some) women who would turn their perfectly powdered little noses up at the gift of beauty.  Since the time we are old enough to sneak into mama’s rouge, we are mesmerized by makeup.  The beauty industry caught onto this and made your life a whole heck of a lot easier because many of them have crafted up kits especially for the holiday season.  But aside from the limited edition palettes, there are plenty of fun ways to gift your buddy with beauty.

gift guide makeup1. Bobbi Brown Basic Brush Collection, 2. The New Black Foiled Again 5pc Nail Set, 3. Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain Soap, 4. Oribe Purse Size Collection, 5. Elizabeth Arden Holiday Lip Gloss Set, 6. Kitsch Bow Ponytail Holders, 7. Le Metier de Beaute Ultra Hydration Mask Duo, 8.Library of Flowers Arboretum Bubble Bath, 9.

Beauty Buzz: Beauty Bamboozle
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

fake eyelashesSociety basically demands perfection from women these days.  That’s a lot of pressure and I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for all of that.  So in order to cut some corners and fake the beauty funk, there are a few tricks of the trade that will have you looking effortlessly beautiful in much less time, pain, and money than one might think.  Be a beauty magician and pull some tomfoolery on these fools.

  1. Bumble and bumble Spraychalk: Adding a pop of color to your coif became a whole lot easier with this spray on chalk.  You could always do it the old fashion way though…
  2. St. Tropez Tanning Essentials Kit: The best thing you can do for your skin is not fry it with UV rays.  This kit makes it possible to be sunkissed without wrinkling.
  3. Buxom Full-On Lip Cream: Rather than suffer through painful needles, pucker up with a lip plumping gloss first.
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo: There’s a reason Brooke Shields and Cara Delevingne are beauty icons.  Those brows.  Fill yours in and transform your face.
  5. Color Wow Root Cover Up: Save time and cash by covering up unsightly roots with a temporary touch up ’til you can get to the salon.
  6. Sephora Collection Day, Night, and Glam Lash Set: Nothing adds drama like a pair of false lashes.  Be sure and watch this video pre-application so as to avoid any accidents.
  7. Sarah Chapman Skinesis FacialiftBefore going under the knife, try this at home tool that claims to sculpt facial contours, reduce puffiness, and even prevent jawline breakouts.
  8. Batiste Dry Shampoo: The best way to disguise an overdue blowout is with dry shampoo although there are a few other clever ways to disguise a bad hair day.

Abracadabra!
