Here’s your chance to kick back and catch up on the latest trends from the world of beauty. But hurry, the train is soon departing. All you’ve got to do to claim your ticket is keep reading.
Braids are back, yes, but they can be tough to get right. When it comes to rocking braids, there a thin line between goddess and girlish. And hey, honestly, it depends on what you’re going for. But if you ever need any help getting the perfect fancy braided look, then look no further. (Cosmopolitan)
We love a strong brow game, but can it be possible to have too much of a good thing? These brave beauty editors set out to answer just that question by making a video of themselves applying 100 LAYERS of brow product. We don’t know why, but it’s great. Give it a watch. (Refinery29)
One of the best things about autumn (besides the opportunity to switch up your makeup routine) is cozying up with a blanket, lots of pillows, pressing play on your Netflix cue, and just letting it roll. But even while hanging out on the couch, you can find inspiration on how to be fierce and fabulous. Check out some of the most stylish and fashionable movies ever, and remember, no one can see you when you vogue alone. So go for it! (Fashionista)
Typically, when it comes to finding a facial mask for perfectly glowing skin, your options are to (a) spend a lot of money in some fancy store, (b) spend a lot of money at some fancy spa, or (c) spend a lot of money to travel to a pristine riverbed and gather your own facial clay. Thank heaven and the good earth, there’s now another option for us purity and perfection seekers. L’Oréal Paris has released a widely available clay mask collection with a trio of mineral clays—each with a different purpose. One detoxifies, another mattifies and the other refines your skin’s texture. So you can either take a Goldilocks approach and use just what your face needs, or you could go all out and multi-mask. No bad choices here. (Marie Claire)
We can’t even call this one a trend, because it’s a necessity. But it is a beautiful thing. In case you missed it, August 26th was Women’s Equality Day, and we thought we’d keep the fire going with some extraordinary quotes from some extraordinary women. (The Zoe Report)
