New Year – New Look

714b675b27f96df2241003031c429366

There’s something about the turn of a calendar year or a change in season that makes everyone crave dramatic change, especially when it comes to physical appearance. But you don’t have to dye your hair red or max out your credit card to reinvent your image—smaller changes can add up to a big impact. Here are 4 almost-effortless ways to update your appearance. They’re quick, inexpensive and unlike the many trendy diets the season brings, require nearly zero willpower.

1. Try A Different Part
Experimenting with a new look can be as simple as flipping it to the opposite side of your head. The simple switch can add new volume at the roots and alter the way the front sections frame your face. Changing your part is an especially great way to get long hair out of a rut without sacrificing any length. Move your part before bed using a comb and a bit of styling cream, then put on a wide, no-slip elastic headband. Slip folded tissue beneath the band to keep it from leaving crease marks in your hair.

2. Red Lipstick
Don’t be scared off by its boldness—the truth is, red is one of the most universally wearable lipstick shades, and it’s a classic way to add both impact and femininity to your look. In general, reds that are more blue-based are flattering on all skin tones, and they make your teeth look whiter. When shopping for one, trust your instincts. Choosing a red lipstick is like choosing a great piece of jewelry—you should go for the one you’re immediately attracted to.

3. Modernize Your Manicure
Your nails may seem like minor details, but they say a lot about you. For example, oval-shaped tips painted with pale-pink polish are pretty, but a little predictable. Try this of-the-moment twist instead, and watch your nails suddenly spark attention: Instead of rounding off the tips, file them straight across and then round off just the corners, creating what manicurists call a “squoval” shape. When it comes to color, the chicest choices right now are warm brownish-beige shades, like OPI “Over The Taupe” Or, try one of the new palest-gray hues, such as OPI “Ballet My Point Exactly,” which is soft and subtle, but still thoroughly modern.

4. Get Glowing
Get your skin glowing! Foundation isn’t the most thrilling makeup topic, but it makes a huge difference to your overall look. To get the most flawless finish, take your application technique up a notch with Youngblood. The subtle shimmer in this foundation gives skin a youthful, dewy look, and by reflecting light, helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and other flaws.

Multitasking Products #SaturdaySkincare

7590d09f421fbf550fefcd6d25cb0524

Between day creams, night creams, eye creams, serums, spot treatments, and tinted moisturizers, (we could go on), your bathroom may be home to enough skincare products to open up your own beauty counter. It’s a waste to use too many products because our skin can absorb only 50 percent of what we apply on it, and overloading your complexion will only dull your skin. To avoid using too many products we recommend using Multitasking Products.

We love this Triple Oxygen Energizing Cream from Bliss. It’s light enough to use as both a day and nigh moisturizer. Its also filled with a trio of oxygen ingredients to revitalize worn out, strained skin and return it to its bright and healthy form.

VS FASHION SHOW 2014 BEAUTY

In honor of last nights #VSFashionShow we’re taking it backstage with a look at the soft and glamorous beauty straight from the runway. This show has its own identity; it isn’t about trends. To make the magic it took an army of hair and makeup artists to create VS’s signature beauty looks.

#AllTheDetails on The Hair at the 2014 VS Fashion Show:

#LetsTalkHair As for those cascading waves seen on every model, lead hairstylist Akki said, “I wanted them to feel a little more chic, wearable and easy since we’re in London” The look required a lot of extensions (they were mostly used to add volume, not length) endless cans of mousse and about eight big rollers per head. Akki massaged the mousse through damp roots, blow-dried the hair and ran the a circling iron through the mid-length to the ends. Then, he set large sections of the hair in rollers that stayed through makeup touch-ups, lunch and rehearsal. Right before the girls were about to get dressed, Akki unrolled the waves, running his fingers through them for separation and softness and adding a touch of shine serum to prevent frizz.

7 Tricks for Eating Your Way to Longer, Healthier Hair

We know that what we put into our body can have a massive impact on the health—and appearance—of our skin and hair, and with that in mind, we’re sharing 7 tips that can encourage faster hair growth, for longer, healthier hair! Get ready to hit the grocery store, you can thank us later.

Load up on iron-rich foods.

Iron is key to hair growth. Find it in dark leafy greens, spinach, nuts, seeds, lamb, beef, oysters, legumes and beans

Replace your regular oats with whole grains.

Move over, much-hyped omega-3’s, It’s omega-6 that will have you starring in your very own Pantene commercial. Whole grain oats provide one of the best sources of these omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential to normal skin and hair growth.

Up your vitamin C intake.

Vitamin C boosts collagen production, which keeps hair strong—and fewer split ends mean fewer trims! Citrus fruits, blueberries, strawberries, peppers, and, of course, leafy greens are all rich sources of vitamin C. This vitamin is also critical in generating circulation to the scalp to feed your follicles.

Work chia seeds into your diet.

Chia seeds are full of nutrients that promote hair growth, including protein, zinc, and copper, as well as B vitamins and iron that prevent hair loss.

Nourish with vitamin E.

This aids in the production of keratin, which plays a huge role in preventing hair breakage and supporting growth. You can get vitamin E in supplement form or by eating almonds, pine nuts, spinach, and olives.

Invest in zinc and silica supplements.

These minerals promote hair growth. Include cucumber, zucchini, celery, asparagus, mango, Brazil nuts, oysters, and eggs in your diet.

B vitamins.

B-complex vitamins increase scalp circulation and power up hair follicles, which helps propel the growth of gloriously thick locks.
