Before the holiday season really starts, get your beauty routine in check. If you're not loving how your hair looks these days, the solution could lie in new shampoo and conditioner formulated specifically to volumize and thicken strands. Ahead of Black Friday, you can get the OGX Thick and Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner Set for its lowest price ever on Amazon.

Skin that was once oily may become dryer, and sensitivity to certain ingredients may change. Additionally, to keep skin looking its healthiest, we may want to introduce new ingredients or even a whole new skin regimen, even as we embrace aging gracefully and take pride in our changing appearance. If you’re looking for a moisturizer that gives fast, dramatic results, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid is the top choice.
There are a plethora of skincare concerns you may struggle with from dry patches to breakouts, oily skin, and everything in between. While skincare products commonly address the more popular issues listed above, there are other issues that may arise which are less frequently discussed. One such issue is pore size. Your pores are the tiny openings on your complexion that allow for sweat and oil to be released, but they can often vary in size and you may find that with oilier skin your pores are significantly more noticeable. In order to shrink pores without going to great lengths or damaging your skin, we spoke with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner to get a sense of what can be done for this pesky skin concern—this is what he had to say.
From drier, more arid weather (which can quickly suck the moisture from your complexion) to selfie-ready holiday parties, winter is the perfect time to revamp your skin, hair, and makeup routines. (Plus, it provides a solid excuse to shamelessly gift yourself that powder, serum, or spray you've been eyeing all year.)
Before you invest in a shampoo (or conditioner for that matter) that claims to give you the full, luscious locks of your dreams, there are a few things you should consider beforehand. Although the actual density within your strands (determined by genetics) can't really be altered with a shampoo or conditioner alone, there are products out there that can help your strands look and feel thicker with the right ingredients.
It always seems as though the second half of the year just flies by. One minute everyone is planning their Halloween costumes, then in the blink of an eye the Thanksgiving table is set, Christmas lights are up, and New Years Eve Plans are being made. In the middle of all the holiday frenzy, brands are slicing their prices in half for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, not to mention continuing to drop new products left and right.
While I'm a little less aggressive with my brow filling than I was in 2016, and I'm not tweezing them as much as I was in 1999—my eyebrows are still getting just as much attention these days, in their brushed-up, laminated glory. While you shouldn’t expect your brows to be...
Consumers are increasingly shopping for beauty products online — and they want help doing it. But that doesn’t mean they want emails from store associates. In fact, 75.49% are not interested in having a store associate reach out via email, text or social media regarding beauty products, according to a new study from Salesfloor.
Fact: There is an elite group of people on your holiday gifting list for whom you would do the absolute most. Whether it’s your mother, your work spouse, or your significant other-turned-roommate, they’re the people who are often the hardest to shop for, but in your heart of hearts, you know you want to give them the world. But when the entire world is too tall an order, allow us to present our case for gifting beauty bundles.
Whether you want an outlet for creative experimentation or 20 minutes each morning to carve out some normalcy in the midst of a global pandemic, makeup has served a different purpose for each of us over the last two years and continues to do so. I believe that the role of makeup was redefined during the pandemic. When we were all initially asked to stay home, it seemed intuitive that the beauty industry would suffer, but this was not the case. As social distancing, mask mandates and WFH business models have emerged, we have seen makeup become a hobby or even a lifeline instead of another monotonous step in your morning routine. Rather than being a way to signal to others that we are pulled together and ready for the day, doing our makeup has become a way to signal this to ourselves. I have always believed that makeup is about more than just looking good, it is about feeling good too, and the last two years have definitely shown how makeup can be used to empower rather than impress.
I’m sharing my makeup routine and my go-to products for a bright, natural look. After sharing my skincare essentials, I received countless requests asking if I could unpack my makeup favorites in a blog post, too! I’ve shared favorite products in the past, but this will be a more comprehensive list of the items I reach for over and over again. While I love experimenting with new brands and colors (makeup is fun, after all!), today I’m sharing my current favorites for a bright + natural look. I love pink lips, rosy cheeks, and dark, fluffy brows. My everyday makeup takes me 5 minutes to apply, and I refuse to choose a desert island favorite! (Okay, okay, if I had to, it’d be this.)

As a makeup artist (full disclosure: I am also a beauty director at Sephora), I am often asked how to update makeup and skincare routines to stay current each season. The truth is, there are some tried and true tips that stand the test of time — like exfoliating and hydrating religiously — but I would be lying if I didn't say there are other tips you should be following to stay glowing.
You know what's missing from every cheesy holiday movie set in a quaint, snowy town I've ever seen? The skin-care issues that typically come along with winter. The dryness. The dullness. The windburn! I know there's a lot about these festive flicks that is totally unrealistic, but this void of skin woes is always on my mind.
I've been a professional makeup artist for twenty years, and during my time painting faces and admiring beauty from afar—I've noticed a significant shift. The cosmetic industry has exploded and evolved into a more conscious space for brands and consumers. On the one hand, consumers aren't only looking for products...

Between the return to the office, the ever changing restrictions, and the chaos that was Black Friday, the run up to Christmas has been a little more hectic than usual.

With ’90s style frosty blue eyeshadow and neon eyeliner trending, many of us are exploring how we can add more bright colors to our makeup palette. But what if the color you choose for your eyeliner or lipstick could elevate or shift your energy? It would certainly be a compelling reason to experiment with a makeup shade you haven’t tried before. That’s what Susanna Merrick, the intuitive stylist behind Aura Wear NYC believes.
She may have been a high-flying diplomat in her early life, but Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza turned her hand to beauty when she discovered the healing power of Budapest’s mineral-rich thermal water on her formerly troubled skin. Now in her 40s, the mother of four and co-founder of skincare line Omorovicza, a brand that is backed by Nobel Prize-winning science, reveals the products she relies on.
