Unconventional Beauty Tricks That Really Work post image

Even though I could literally open a store with the amount of makeup and beauty products in my possession, my latest obsession has been finding beauty solutions in unlikely places…like the kitchen and medicine cabinet.

It started a few weeks ago when someone told me that Pepto-Bismol works wonders when it comes to clearing up breakouts. I thought it sounded ridiculous, but I was curious enough to give to a try and was astounded by the results (more on that later). This little experiment got me wondering what other unconventional beauty tricks I could try.

I make a concerted effort to live a healthy and natural life. I try to avoid eating anything that comes out of a bag or box, am mindful about the ingredients in products I use (I also have to be because my skin is super sensitive), so was really drawn to the idea of using natural ingredients to solve my beauty issues.

Through my research, I discovered that the best beauty products aren’t always found in the beauty aisle and I was amazed by how dramatically these little tricks of the trade worked. Since I started experimenting with natural beauty concoctions, I can’t go anywhere without someone asking me my skincare secrets (and it’s been pretty funny seeing their reaction when I tell them!).

And here they are:

Going Nude: Best Neutral Products To Show Off Your Natural Beauty post image

I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by Dolce and Gabbana’s True Monica makeup collection collaboration with actress Monica Bellucci. Unlike other top designer labels, like Chanel, Dior, and Lancome, which celebrated the blue and green colors of the tropics in their summer collections, Dolce and Gabbana embraced the everyday woman with seductive neutral shades that brought out her natural beauty. And who better for inspiration than the epitome of sensuality and breathtaking beauty Monica Bellucci?

Filled with shades of taupe, rose, soft pinks, and nude, neutral makeup is a great way to accentuate your natural beauty and highlight your best features without looking too overdone. That’s what also makes it a great choice for a day-to-night date makeup look.

Neutral makeup is so versatile that you could easily transition the look from day to night by smudging on some black eyeliner or dark shadow to create a smokey eye look. Read on to see my favorite neutral beauty finds for fun summer date makeup:

Celebrity Beauty Inspiration: Jessica Alba’s Sweet and Flirty Look post image

While everyone is still obsessing over the “punk” beauty and fashion looks at the Met Gala, I’m completely falling for Jessica Alba’s fresh spring makeup from her recent appearance at the “Secretly and Greatly” press conference in Seoul, South Korea.

Her subtle, neutral eye, dewy skin, and pink lips are a nice break from the brooding red and brown shades of winter and fall. In fact, I loved her look so much that I tried to re-create it for a date night. Flirty and natural, this day-to-night date look will highlight your best features, and not to mention, make a great first impression.

Here’s how I did it:

Beauty Tips to Hide Your Allergies post image
Allergies can really put a damper on the way you look and feel. It’s hard to feel attractive when your nose is runny, your eyes are watery, and your face is splotchy and itchy. Let’s not forget the constant sneezing and nose blowing.
A recent survey from the makers of Zyrtec revealed that:
  • 50% of women with allergies have had to miss out on something, such as a party or date, because of their allergy-related beauty woes
  • Two-thirds (66%) of women with allergies have felt ugly or unattractive because of their Allergy Face
  • 51% of female allergy sufferers have kept makeup for longer than one year
  • 75% of women with allergies feel that experiencing severe allergy symptoms would be worse than having a last-minute breakout while on a big date

With allergy season in full swing, the survey also revealed that 96 percent of female allergy sufferers have experienced Allergy Face – beauty woes like a red nose, watery eyes or a puffy face that can accompany allergy symptoms. What’s more, 81 percent of women with allergies think they can never fully cover up their Allergy Face.

To help combat these beauty blunders, Zyrtec beauty expert Rebekah George offers the following tips to tackle Allergy Face:
