• In Our Makeup Bag: Liz Earle Toner & Moisturiser

    Clear skin is truly key in any beauty routine. If your base isn't good, your makeup can only go so far. Washing your face thoroughly and targeting your skin's problems is necessary. And quality skin care products are just as important as quality makeup!

  • CC Beauty Live: Skin Care Basics

    We go through a lot of make up and hair videos over here, but I don't always go over skin care tips. How are you supposed to properly use makeup if you don't know how to care for your skin?

  • The Best 4 Lip Products You Will Ever Buy

    I have an obsession with all things lips: lip buffer, lip gloss, lipstick, lip balm, Ms. Lippy... This obsession has resulted in me trying just about any kind of product I can get my hands (or should I say my lips) on. After spending money on a lot of products that don't live up to their promise, I can attest that the following four are definitely some of the best products on the market.

  • Cracked Hands? Lather Up!

    As someone with very dry skin in the winter and hands that are prone to breaking, cracking, bleeding, etc., I think I have probably tried every brand of hand cream in the nation. Bad for me (my wallet and my cracking skin), but great for you; I’ve made all the unfortunate purchasing decisions so you don’t have to.

  • The Facial Pick-Me-Up

    Thanksgiving break seems like a long and luxurious break from the crazy college world, but with all the people you have to see, shopping you have to do and family you have to spend time with, Thanksgiving turns into one exhausting escape. And, considering it has been months (or maybe even years) since you have last seen home people, looking your best is of utmost importance.

  • Burnt To a Crisp? Read On…

    Now that a lot of us hold weekly office jobs, it makes perfect sense that we want to soak up as much sun as possible on the weekends. However, too many girls make the mistake of not wearing sunscreen while sitting in the sun to compensate for their pale bodies…and end up looking like a lobster instead.

  • Beat The Heat With These Beauty Cooling Treats

    The dog days of summer are quickly approaching and you know what that means; muggy, steamy heat. Whether you're on the waterfront or completely landlocked, even those of you in the so-called "dry heat" states can't avoid the boil of a mid-July day. Do your best to stay cool, dry and sweat free with these products that bring on the chill.

  • Makeup 101: Save your Skin from the Sun

    So yesterday I got my first sunburn of the year. (At least, I think it’s a sunburn - it may also be a result of my drunken face-plant…) Honestly, though, I’m not gonna complain 'cause Syracuse hasn’t seen the sun in months. I am, however, going to dust off the sun products that have been under my bed for the past 8 months.

  • Makeup 101: Beat the Burn

    I actually feel quite sorry for you; sunburns are the worst! They hurt, they peel, and as if the pain isn?t enough, well you also look like someone put you in a frying pan for 5 hours. (I bet you wish you had listened to your mother and put on some SPF!)

  • All Made Up: Real Life Skin Care

    Let’s talk about skin care. Go into any beauty retailer, find a sales person and ask them to recommend a skin care regimen. Then duck, because you are about to get hit with an avalanche of products your skin “needs.” They’re going to try to sell you a makeup remover, a cleanser, a scrub, a toner, a serum, a moisturizer, a spot treatment...
