I'm a Skin Expert, and These Are the Tweakments That Are Worth Knowing About

Welcome to the wonderful world of tweakments! It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that aesthetic treatments are the next frontier of the beauty industry, an evolution of the professional skin treatments we’ve been having for years, and an innovation of technology that allows us to achieve results that go above and beyond the capabilities of our daily skincare routines. “Tweakments are non-surgical cosmetic procedures, like fillers, Botox, laser treatments, or skin peels, that can make small but significant changes to the face or the body,” explains Alice Hart-Davis, beauty journalist and founder of The Tweakments Guide. “Things like softening wrinkle lines, improving skin texture, replacing lost volume, and tightening the skin.”A few decades ago, tweakments were the preserve of the rich...

3 Eyeliner Application Techniques You Need to Know

Photo:   The first thing you have to know is how to create the most flattering shape for your eyes. According to Mellinger, the fold of your eye is what determines that. "Those with a hooded eye may need a thicker wing in order to see the line when the eye is open," For those with a heavy fold, you may need to create a sort of “bat wing” shape in order for the liner to look complete with an open...

19 Holy Grail Beauty Products That You’ll Love Forever

Photo: Bianca Lambert As a kid and teenager, I spent hours in my bathroom grooming myself. Looking back, that might have seemed a little vain, but it was less about vanity and more about curiosity. I loved experimenting with new products even if the ads on television and in magazines weren't reflective of my skin and hair needs as a young Black girl. But at the time, as I absorbed all of the sto...

The 4 Rules for Choosing a Moisturizer If You Have Rosacea

If only choosing a skincare product was 100% simple—you just pop into the store (or fill your cart online) with the first thing that comes up and call it a day. But we know that you've got to be mindful of a couple of things when shopping for those moisturizers, serums, cleansers, toners, and more. The most important factors? Your skin type and any conditions and concerns.It might seem like a no-brainer to some, but up until a while ago, I wasn't personalizing something I thought was so simple—a face cleanser—to my particular skin type. Now I know.If you have rosacea, you know how tough it can be to find products that can work for you and any flare-ups that might occur. A lot of skincare finds can be irritating or make the redness worse. Especially when it comes to moisturizers, there are ...

How to Curate the Ultimate Fall Beauty Lineup, According to an Astrologer

I'll be honest. I'd never really considered incorporating astrology into my beauty routine in any way until I chatted with astrologer Susan Miller. With celebrity fans including Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, and Jessica Alba, and a wildly popular monthly zodiac predictions website, Astrology Zone, under her belt, I trust her guidance wholeheartedly. Luckily for us, Miller has partnered with Brandshare to release an astrology-based beauty box, which was created with people's individual signs and elements in mind.Naturally, because I'm a beauty- (and astrology-) obsessed editor, I had a few questions for Miller about her process. I definitely had to know how she goes about selecting products for water, earth, fire, and air signs. That way, I could relay the information and keep it in the b...

This $20 Jelly-Like Serum Gave Me Plump and Bouncy Skin

Photo: Versed This serum contains a mix of super hydrating ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, and snow mushroom extract. By now, we're probably all familiar with hyaluronic acid. It's a powerful humectant, which means it attracts (and holds) water in the skin, replenishing cell hydration. While very different than hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid serves a similar functi...

I've Been a Beauty Writer for Years—This Magical Primer Is the Best I've Used

Sunscreen and primers have become two of the most important parts of my beauty routine. I’ve become an ardent SPF user for obvious "protecting my skin against damage and cancer" reasons. And primer is always key for helping foundation go on smoother and look flawless—even more so when you have large pores and skin that's 40 years old like mine. I can’t stand it when my foundation seeps into my pores and settles into my lines. No, thank you. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more products that are a combination of SPF and primer, and if I can take a step away from my routine, I’ll happily welcome it! This is why I was so excited to get my hands on Saint Jane Beauty's Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing SPF 30 ($38). Saint Jane is a brand that I’ve been a fan of since its debut in 2019. The Hyd...

Summer Fridays' New SPF Just Might Be the Brand's Best Product Launch Yet

At this point, I add anything new from Summer Fridays to my cart almost immediately. No questions asked. I've already confessed my undying love for the brand's Overtime Mask ($46) and Heavenly Sixteen Face Oil ($55), but today I want to chat about the brand's latest offering—its new SPF. I know, I'm sure you're already overwhelmed by the amount of sunscreen content on the internet telling you which one to buy. It feels like every summer, there are ten million new options to choose from. But let me tell you exactly who this sunscreen is for. If you like being protected from the sun, but dislike slathering on a white, heavy substance in addition to your skincare, then this one is for you. Summer Fridays is offering a new kind of SPF. One with a milky, serum-like texture that melts into your ...

The 15 Best Drugstore Face Sunscreens of 2022

Photo: @kaitlyn_mclintock When it comes to sunscreen, there are two universal truths. The first is that it's intrinsic to any skincare routine. (Please, please, please practice safe sun, people!) The second is that you don't have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to get a quality formula. After all, effective doesn't mean expensive. That goes for face sunscreen too. Just because it comes from...
