1. Invest In Healthy Living

The easiest way to spend less time on daily makeup applications is to focus on habits that encourage natural beauty. A conscious effort to improve your sleeping habits, hydration, and activeness can deliver great results. Your skin, teeth, hair, nails, and body shape can all see visible upgrades. Better still, you’ll feel far from better from the inside. In turn, you’ll naturally look happier, friendlier, and more confident. With this strong foundation in place, your appearances will naturally be enhanced.

2. Smell Good

Your overall aesthetic isn’t exclusively about your look. Instead, it covers all of the human senses. A person’s smell can have a telling impact on their overall vibe, impacting the way they feel about themselves as well as the reactions of others. Finding the right perfume should be top of the agenda. Still, everything from fragranced hand sanitizer to the right clothes detergent can have an influence. It may take a little trial and error to get it right. Once you do, though, staying on top of this task takes seconds.

3. Take Control Of Your Body Hair

Body hair management is a time-consuming and stressful situation that requires a daily commitment. However, you can ditch waxing and shaving forever by finding a permanent laser removal solution. By achieving smooth legs and armpits on a 24/7 basis, it can remove a source of self-consciousness. Moreover, it allows you to wear whatever clothes you want with confidence at all times without finding time for hair removal. When combined with the lack of skin irritation, the benefits are clear.

4. Hairstyle Fixes

A good hairstyle is about more than just hair. It can shape your face, express personality, and influence your whole look. Visiting the salon for a professional cut is always a smart move. Nonetheless, equipping yourself with the knowledge to make quick hair changes is crucial too. Whether it’s adopting a more practical look for work or a fresh style to suit a certain outfit is up to you. Either way, managing your hair is often the most time-consuming job of all. Change this, and you will notice major rewards.

5. Accept Imperfections

After seeing photo after photo of perfect looking women on social media, your mindset may be affected. However, you cannot walk around in real life with an airbrushed appearance. The sooner you realize that freckles and laugh lines are a part of you, the better. While you do not necessarily need to bring attention to them, you shouldn’t be frightened of them either. You look amazing as you are, and embracing those unique characteristics is crucial. After all, self-confidence is the best thing you’ll ever wear.

Get a Virtual Makeover with Styled by Trendage

by

We have all wished we could try out the trendy and in-style hairstyles before we make the big change. We have also all wished we could see how our “considerable” online purchases would look before we hit the checkout, but sometimes our fear of the unknown stops us. Will that big cut and bangs actually look cute or should you just leave your hair alone? Do you really think that new pleated denim skirt will look good with your white knee-high socks? Now you can find out for free without ever having to leave your house.

 

Styled by Trendage is a brand new fashion app that is changing the game for shopping. No more going to the mall to try on the cute shirt you saw online or having to wear clip-on hair pieces before you spend the cash on those highlights you’ve been dying to get. Made for fashion-forward millennials, Styled by Trendage allows you to see various hairstyles and clothing on yourself with a simple selfie.

How the app works

All you have to do is take (or upload) a picture of yourself and let the magical technology of the app do the rest. By scanning your face, the app is able to give you various hairstyle options as well as show you different articles of clothing on yourself from top brands. And don’t worry, you won’t have to upload any awkward body selfies or worry about full-body scans on the app. By entering your personal height and weight information you will be able to see just how you would look with the best styles, which includes featured clothing from retailers and brands such as Nordstroms, Amazon, Topshop, Converse, Rent the Rack and more.

Once you’ve got your picture uploaded, begin searching and swiping to try everything on! Go from blonde, wavy curls to a brunette, choppy bob with the swipe of your finger. You can also earn discounts to your favorite featured stores just by swiping to try things on!

Straight out of a movie

After dealing with the drawbacks of always having to try on clothes at the store, app creator Amanda Young and her team set out to bring their dream to reality. Inspired by the 1995 movie, Clueless, Young wanted to recreate Cher’s magic closet. With the technology available today, she has created an easy to use and fun app that ensures you won’t have to go to the mall just to find out you don’t like anything.

Other benefits

Aside from seeing how great you look without having to go to the salon or out shopping, as well as easily gaining discounts for your favorite brands just by using the app, Styled by Trendage has some really awesome perks. Young hopes this app will help those love who they are by becoming a part of the Body Positivity movement. Her goal with the app’s ability to customize to your own body shape is to help people stop comparing their bodies with others. She wants to move past the “fashion models” and allow people using her app to see what they themselves would look like with the clothes on instead of trying to be inspired by others wearing the brands or look.  

Overall, this app has us head-over-heels in love. With its clever concept and fun designs, you won’t ever want to leave your room to shop–unless it’s time to make that big purchase!

The Styled by Trendage app is free for all iPhone users.

Falling prey to the mundane takes a toll on your creative vibes and confidence, not to mention your hair. Think about the times you’ve fallen in love with your latest haircut. Didn’t it motivate you to take extra time and care to style your hair? We’re encouraging you as well as ourselves to stop dreaming of that day you sit in your hairstylist’s chair and tell them to “have at it!” (Just kidding!) We have an even better idea. Look no further than the talented TRESemmé Celebrity Brand Ambassador Chrissy Teigen, who recently showed off the latest spin on the lob, and the most slay-worthy hairstyle of this summer that can totally carry into fall! Think different, think effortless, think rebel: don’t cut the front.

For those of you who are interested in trying out this spectacular look, first have a chat with your go-to hairstylist, as you’re going to want someone who knows how to take into consideration your natural hair texture. This way, you can feel your best whether you decide to style your hair or leave it up to the hair gods. TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu gave us some tips of her own!

“Begin by washing hair using the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Shampoo to set the foundation for a voluminous look,” Syfu says.
“Apply TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse to towel-dried hair and blow dry upside down, using fingers to shake and pull at the roots.”
Syfu continues, “When dry, wrap hair once or twice around a large barrel curling iron, leaving ends out to create natural movement. Let sections cool, then gently brush through to soften the waves.”
“Set the style by working TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hairspray through lengths with fingers for a soft, touchable hold that lasts.”

Hairstylist on MTV’s Finding Carter Shares Hair Styling Tips

by

The much anticipated MTV drama television series Finding Carter has finally come back to us, and those who have watched the first season can validate the show’s hype. With an authentic, heartfelt cast and a storyline that carries a cumbersome punch in almost every episode, it is no wonder why so many have fallen in love with the show, let alone become addicted to it. For all the Finding Carter addicts (myself included), there is yet another way in which we can become even more obsessed– oh boy! Celebrity hairstylist Richard Boggs, who is currently the hair department head on Finding Carter, has shared with us his tips for styling the show’s lead actress Kathryn Prescott (Carter Stevens).

  1. Start by cleansing and treating the hair with RBPro Essentials Moisture Shampoo ($17) and Moisture Conditioner ($17). This duo is sulfate and paraben free. Their powerful anti-aging and collagen-building properties act as a barrier to seal hair cuticles and protect from fading and damage. This is a great way to maintain and keep reds like this bright for filming.
  2. When we are on set, I am blow drying every day and then restyling the hair, which can cause stress, breakage, and flyaways. I make sure to reach for RBPro Essentials Everyday Miracle Repair Treatment ($17) when hair is damp and apply it just before I begin heat styling. It is a must for maintaining the integrity and overall health of the hair. The treatment is weightless, which is important when using it on fine hair like Ms. Prescott’s.
  3. Since Finding Carter is shot in Hot-Atlanta’s humidity, it’s important to thoroughly blow dry hair in stages. Section the hair off into four main parts, and then thoroughly blow dry root to end. This will ensure great long lasting and smooth volume. I always use RBPro Essentials Le Deux Styling Crème ($17). No flat iron or curling iron needed. It’s a blow-n-go!
  4. To finish the style, a shot of White Sands Infinity Finishing Spray ($22) at the root area will always insure fullness. Finishing off a Hollywood style with White Sands is a guarantee your glamour work will endure the long day of shooting! This spray just holds the style no matter what the weather or shooting conditions are like.

Feel free to express your thoughts regarding this hairstyle, and if you’ve tried it, we’d love for you to post your achieved look in the comments section below. As for anyone who hasn’t seen the show and is interested in watching it, you are more than welcome to join the fan club, as Finding Carter is on Tuesday at 10/9c.

The Best Braided Hairstyles

by

As the beautiful weather begins, we’re ecstatic to break out some of the best braided hairstyles for spring. Nothing compliments an outfit more than a gorgeous braided hairdo. Three of our favorites come from one of the coolest Hair Gurus named Amber Fillerup Clark, who’s also known as Barefoot Blonde. Aside from her raw and honest talent, Clark has a sweet nature and genuine spirit that instantly draws you in. Needless to say, she’s stealing our hearts one braided hairstyle at a time.
For a day when you don’t want your hair up or down, the Twisted Fishtail is an impeccable medium. Though it appears simplistic upon first glance, you’ll find others turning their heads at this unsuspecting style.

Another option is the Double Fishtail Braid. It’s a nice alternative to the messy bun, and it works especially well with second-day hair.

Our last choice, the Twist and Pull Apart, is a seamless fit between the first two hairdos. This style is a playful way to elaborate upon the basic ponytail.

All of these styles are great for keeping your hair away from your face or off your neck; however, you don’t have to sacrifice looking cute in the process. What I personally love about these three looks is that they appear intricate yet are easily attainable, which is something that Barefoot Blonde is conscious of in all of her creations. Lastly, Clark reminds us that “hair is the best accessory,” so let’s keep that in mind this spring. We should have just as much joy getting ready with our hair as we do with our outfits! For more of Barefoot Blonde, you can check out her Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, where Clark shares pictures as well as step-by-step photo and video tutorials.

Spring Hair Trends Inspired By Fashion Week

by

With the extreme cold we’ve had this winter, it’s no wonder if our desires to be comfortable and warm have triumphed our desires to look cute. The best way to lose those winter blues is by creating some change to our daily routines, such as switching up our hairstyles. Not only is it cost effective, but it’s also an easy way to quickly change an entire look. As always, Fashion Week provided us with the latest up-and-coming styles. This year, professional hairstylists showed us some seriously gorgeous hairdos on the runway that are perfect for the spring. Here are some spring hair trends inspired by Fashion Week!

The “Polished Ponytail”


Erin Fetherston’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection was inspired by her fondness for fairytales. Her collection is both “spritely and sophisticated” as it offers gowns, dresses, and tailored separates with a “woodland” inspired palette that includes mossy greens and poinsettia reds. Blackberry and saffron colors add warmth to her ivory- and ebony-centered collection. These whimsical prints and embroideries are reminders to the designer’s ideal of the natural world. TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu created the “polished ponytail,” which gives that contemporary, ladylike, imaginative, and unique quality, which greatly complimented Fetherston’s collection.
Jeanie’s Tips:

  1. On damp hair, apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse to roots and hairline, TRESemmé Runway Collection Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm on lengths and ends, and blow dry straight.
  2. Mist in TRESemmé Runway Collection Get Sleek Heat Protect Spray and touch up hair with a flat iron for a sleek finish.
  3. Make a center part and separate hair into three sections. First, create two small ponytails with gold string tied behind each ear, then gather the remaining hair into a ponytail at the nape of neck.
  4. Take two small ponytails and tie a knot on top of the larger ponytail, then wrap the length around the base. Finish with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.

Add Some Surprise and Sparkle this Valentine’s Day

by

Yes, ladies – it’s that time of year again! That time, of course, when love is supposed to be in the air. Though, regardless of how, who, or if you’re spending your Valentine’s Day with anyone special, we all deserve to treat ourselves a little. Let’s add some surprise and sparkle this Valentine’s Day with some beautiful yet simple hairstyle tips to try, as well as makeup ideas, which may give you the excuse to make a trip to Sephora. And the best part? There’s no need to break the bank! Needless to say, let’s get started and have some fun!

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows


For a special night out with your date, you’ll want to create a look that shows you’ve taken a little extra time to look nice for your date; it also doesn’t hurt to create a look that will impress. Besides making your date feel good, it will give you confidence as well. Here is a quick, easy, and cool way to add some glamour and spice to your makeup look. The perfect eye shadow palette to play with would be the well-loved Urban Decay Naked3, as its palette consists entirely of rose gold tones which – you guessed it – are great for Valentine’s Day. You can start with Urban Decay’s Naked3 palette, which you can use with a Makeup Geek Foiled Eye Shadow. These foiled eye shadows are priced at $9.99 each – how awesome is that? What’s even better is the fact that you can get them in a pan, so if you decide that you’d like to get more, you can have your own personalized collection safely tucked into one of their Z Palettes.
Makeup Geek can only be found online, but it is a great site to visit. Its owner, Marlena, has worked incredibly hard to make wonderful products for beauty enthusiasts and lovers, such as herself. Some perfect Makeup Geek Foiled Eye Shadows that would be fantastic for your date night include:  “Magic Act,” “In the Spotlight,” “Grandstand,” “Showtime,” and “Flame Thrower.” These beautiful foiled eye shadows will not only enhance your eye makeup but will also amplify your typical makeup routine for going out. The best way to make sure that all your hard work lasts throughout the night is to use a glitter glue primer. It is made particularly for glitter, pigments, and foiled eye shadows, and it’s stronger than that of a regular eye shadow primer. A popular and well-loved primer for this type of look is Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Glitter Binding Eye Shadow Primer, which retails for $20.
Keep in mind that you want your foiled eye shadow to be the center of attention, so keep the black eyeliner to a minimum! As for cheeks and lips, make sure that they are not neglected but that they also don’t steal the show. A pinky-rose blush and a muted lip, preferably a nude or a baby pink, would work best with this look.
As for hair, a simple classic top knot would be perfect for this type of occasion. Not only is it easy to do, but it is chic, classic, and romantic for whatever outfit you put together. This hairstyle usually works best when dirty (dry shampoo, such as Batiste, is always helpful). There are many ways to achieve the top knot, but the simplest includes tying your hair in a ponytail at the crown of your head, twisting your hair around the elastic, and then pinning it with straight pins. If your hair happens to be thick and the bobby pins won’t hold, use another elastic band to ensure that your knot is secure and will remain in place. Finally, give a light spritz to your hair using your hairspray of choice. I personally like to use Garnier Fruitis Style Anti-Humidity Hairspray Flexible Control in the number two, as it gives your hair a more flexible hold and just so happens to smell good.
