Here’s the truth: The
skin is more complicated than you think. As the body’s first defense against
external aggressors, the skin is wired to meticulously filter each and every
single thing that comes into contact with it and this is why not all skin care
products can penetrate the skin 100% and why some skin care products take time
to produce results or worse, not produce any results at all. Ever wonder why
there are products that are formulated to be sheer and infused with deep-
penetrating ingredients? It’s because brands are trying their best to go around
the complex structure of the skin in high hopes of giving it the essential
nutrients and vitamins it needs.

If you can’t do it on the
outside, do it on the inside. Take this tip to heart: It is important to take
your multivitamins on a daily basis because one, these are skin- loving
nutrients in a much concentrated form, two, they obviously supplement your skin
from within, and lastly, multivitamins will prevent Vitamin Deficiency, which is
detrimental not only to your health, but also to your skin in the long run.

To battle Vitamin
Deficiency, you have to consume the proper kind and amount of foods to insure
your body and skin’s health, but research has shown that people don’t get the
right amount of vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. You can try to be
meticulous about it, but isn’t counting calories along with vitamin milligrams
every single day a bit too tedious and taxing? That’s why there’s the multivitamin!
By now, I know you
already know how important it is to take your multivitamin supplement on a
daily basis. But what are the best vitamins to help keep your skin in the pink?

Is the pre- Holiday workload taking its toll on your skin? Tell me about it. One of the things I dread about the pre-Holiday months is having tired- looking skin 'cuz work just gets heavier around this time and having that "Holiday Glow" sometimes seems impossible to have-I even feel it's causing my skin to age sooner than expected! Well good news because Kiehl's is proud to launch a new duo that will fight for our right to have youthful, plump skin so we'll look our cheerful, glowing best this season and forever!
Many women are not satisfied with the way their skin looks despite being religious with skin care products-it's smooth, wrinkle- free, but still, it looks dull. Kiehl's has found that this is caused by Age-Related Dehydration. Age- Related Dehydration is characterized by having an imbalance of moisture in the skin, causing it to look dull and lifeless-it is also one of the leading causes of accelerated aging. To fight this, Kiehl's came up with Hydro- Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, a clinically- demonstrated, moisture- infusing serum that addresses Age- Related Dehydration for a plumper, fresher, and more youthful skin appearance.
This Serum is apparently inspired by hydration- based, anti- aging Dermatologist procedures like Juvaderm Hydrate and combines potent plant- based hydrating ingredients Glycerin and Shiso Leaf extract-Shiso Leaf protects skin's hydration levels while Glycerin attracts moisture for true hydration on the inside and out. An innovation for Kiehl's, this serum is formulated without heavy waxes and barriers for easier skin absorption. Consistency is a first in the industry as well because it was developed to have a larger internal phase than the external phase for a product that 'bursts' upon application. The Internal Phase is where all the magic is as it contains Glycerin and Shiso Leaf, which comprises 85% of the formulation. Don't forget your eyes too!

A makeup artist can never have too many brushes-that's a fact and Dany Sanz understands this very well so she came up with 76 professional brushes and called them Artist Brushes. More than a collection and tools of art, I'd like to believe that this collection-with the sheer number of brushes it has-is also Dany's way of celebrating the individuality of each and every makeup artist, whether new or seasoned, on this planet.
MAKE UP FOR EVER ARTIST BRUSHES IN DETAIL
Artist Brushes is currently the broadest luxury brush collection at 76 pieces, all of which are made to appeal to both professionals and consumers. During the creation of this collection, Dany Sanz has consulted with renowned makeup brush manufacturer Raphaël and spent five years perfecting the brushes, carefully selecting and testing various synthetic bristles that mimic the softness of natural hair. According to Make Up For Ever, each brush has undergone 25 stages of creation and are all crafted by hand by a manpower of 30.
The handles are made from fine wood with a rosewood hue-it's reminiscent of painting brushes and it gave the entire collection an artistic appeal overall, plus they feel very sturdy and luxe.

The first time I had a whiff of DKNY's Be Delicious fragrance, a fragrance that DKNY says is inspired by New York, I immediately got excited for the time when I can finally visit the Big Apple. I've always wondered how it's like and how it would feel like to be there-maybe it's as picturesque (or even more) as its depiction in photography and stories, and as sweet, jovial, and colorful as the fragrance of DKNY-maybe only a true blue New Yorker or those who have visited the city will only know. Oh, I cannot wait for my time to visit NY to come!
DKNY once again captures the heart of New York, but this time, in a warmer, soulful rendition called DKNY MY NY. Singer/ Song Writer Rita Ora is the face of DKNY's new fragrance. According to DKNY, Rita's urban chic style and bold, eclectic, and free- spirited personality makes her the perfect icon to embody the fragrance.

Eyeliner is an essential part of my routine, especially matte, black eyeliners. Because I like 'em rich, thick, super matte, and super black. Why so? Because as someone who has almond- shaped eyes, I find that matte eyeliners are the most effective in giving me deeper and more defined eyes, plus I like how polished and classy a matte finish is.
So far, these are the matte black eyeliners that I find awesome and use on rotation. Click READ MORE and find out why I love them to bits!
