We know that you’re in love with fashion. We also know that you love beauty just as much, which is why we think that it’s important that you discover these 4 brands. So put on your girly cap and get ready to spend a bit too much on beauty and skincare products that are just too fab to not own.

1. Essence
Awesome quality, huge range, super affordable and frequent releases of new collections. What’s not to love? Essence was created in Germany and is now available in over 50 countries. Visit the Essence website here.

2. Nip + Fab
With the one and only Kylie Jenner being the face of Nip + Fab, you automatically feel obliged to try this skincare brand. A bit on the pricey side, the products are very unique and smell amazing! Visit the Nip + Fab website here.

3. Anatomicals
One of the most quirky and witty skincare brands that you’ll ever know. You just can’t resist hand wash with a name like ‘Silly Twits Ignore Their Mitts’ and a body cleanser called ‘Shower To The People’. Visit the Anatomicals website here.

DAY TO NIGHT: Fashion and Beauty Tips

We all love going for cocktails with the girl gang after a big day at work and, some of us might have a cute date night after another shitty day in a classroom. Whatever you have going on, we could all use some helpful tips that help us go from day to night with ease!

daytonight

1. Change into a dark lip You should be moisturizing those luscious lips during the day with your favorite balm. Then when you go out for some fun during the night, smack on a dark lip for a quick, powerful and fierce night look.

2. Add statement jewelry Adding a few statement pieces to your #OOTN changes the whole game. It’ll transform your entire outfit – add a statement necklace for sophistication; stack a bunch of rings on for an edgy or boho look.

3. Smudge for a smokey look If you’re wearing a perfect line of eyeliner during the day, you’re already ahead of the night makeup look game. For a sexier and more night-time appropriate look, just smudge your liner onto your lids for that smokey eye look.

4. Swap your stud earrings for dangling earrings If you’re looking forward to partying at the end of the day, pack a pair of unique dangling earrings for that girly, eye-catching look.

5. Let your hair down Just like in the movies when someone lets their hair down after a lifetime of it in an up-do! If your locks have been up in a pony for the day, take your hair out and mess around with it for a bit of volume. An effortlessly casual party look!

5 Makeup Essentials for an Office Job

For those glam girls having to sit at a desk from 9 to 5 every day, it’s the little things that can make your day a little bit more golden.

Whether you’ve been grindin’ you’re whole life or you’re an intern newbie, there are just some things that you must keep with you at your desk.You never know when a beauty emergency will happen, so have these essentials on standby and you’ll never find yourself in a sticky beauty situation!

tues-beautyofficeOil blotting sheets
We just hate catching a glimpse of our reflection and being mortified at how much oil our face has built up! And why didn’t anyone tell us we were walking around like this? Blotting sheets are a quick and easy way you can avoid constantly oily skin.

Lipstick
You never know when you need to get a little extra glammed up in a little amount of time. Just to be the extra prepared one in the office, bring a bullet of one of your favorite lippy’s.

Lip Balm
You don’t have to put up with annoying cracked lips! Simply put on a scrub at home and a lip balm for work. Have one sat on your desk because you’ll be re-applying that good stuff all day!

Hand Cream
This is a definite life saver, especially in colder weather… or if you’re constantly shaking hands with important people. When your hands are feeling a little worse for wear, rub in some of your favorite hand cream and voila! You’ve got the softest and nicest smelling hands in the office.

Deodorant & Perfume
Speaking of smells, keep your deodorant and/or perfume in your handbag. When you’re experiencing a B.O. emergency, quickly pop to the bathroom and spritz on your favorite scent. Too easy!

THAT BEAUTY HACK LIFE

A lot of us work around a busy schedule. We work hard until we’re the ultimate girl boss.

Naturally, we find ourselves without much spare time on our hands but at the same time, we all want to look fab. These days, hacks and beauty secrets can save your life! So whether you’re a busy werkin’ girl or chilled as shit, you’re gonna want to try these beauty hacks now!

Out of Dry Shampoo? Put some Baby Powder in your hair to reduce the look of greasy hair.
Dry Shampoo alone is a magical thing to ever exist. Just spray some of that goodness into your “I’m too lazy to wash my hair” hair and people will never know about your oily hair! BUT if you’re out of Dry Shampoo, a bit of baby powder does the same job – just be sure to really work it in.

Add a few drops of Nail Polish remover to your Nail Polish’s that are drying out.
Make the most of your favorite Nail Polish. When it’s drying out, add 3-4 drops of Nail Polish remover, shake, and you’re good to go!

Add some Lemon Juice to your hair to lighten it up!
Picture yourself on a Summer’s day. Before your day gets hella busy sitting by the pool, apply some natural lemon juice to your hair and see it get gradually lighter over the Summer! Exposing it to the sun will give you an even better result!

For softer and healthier hair, shampoo the roots only and use conditioner on the bottom half of your hair.
Blake Lively swears by this one. Shampoo helps your hair to become less oily, and the conditioner helps your ends to stay hydrated and just plain LUSH.

After you’ve made a cup of Green Tea, use the used tea bag for under your eyes to get rid of dark circles.
Who doesn’t love a good cup of Green Tea? There’s even more reasons to love it because when you’re done with the Green Tea Bag, you can pop it under your eyes for a few minutes everyday and you’ll see those dark circles disappear!

After you wash your hair, tip your head upside-down and brush your hair forward for faster growth of hair.
This motion isn’t just plain magic unfortunately. By brushing your hair this particular way, you’re bringing forward the oils that help your hair to grow faster. You’ll have to be patient with this one – you won’t have Rapunzel’s hair overnight.
