Dove Dry Shampoo: Cheap, Effective And Volumizing

Dry shampoo is quite the versatile hair aid when you need to de-grease, boost volume and add fragrance to stale hair. 

We've ALL been there once in a while---oily, dirty, messy tresses. And NOT much time to primp.

We have tried tons of dry shampoo sprays, and NOW, we have found another WINNER:

Dove Refresh + Care Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo ($3.49), at

You CAN'T beat that rock-bottom price!

The scent isn't bad. Reminds us a bit like a fragrant dry-cleaner's scent, if that is even possible to imagine.

This dry shampoo give LOTS of body + boost.

Dry shampoos are great to have on hand and can help EXTEND the life of your blow-out.

We have dark brown, almost black locks, and sometimes we notice the spray will leave behind a little white residue, but your hair dryer can make it disappear pronto.

Heidi Klum Wraps Up In Gray Duster, Arriving At LAX

Airport style. 

Some women have it, and some do not. And let's face it, we really are looking for casual comfort when traveling in the friendly skies.

Project Runway's Heidi Klum is a veteran supermodel, and she understands about the perfect traveling ensemble.

Here she is, Wednesday, arriving home in L.A., following a solo business trip.

Heidi looks casually-chic.

We LOVE Heidi's comfy ripped jeans, white tee, sneakers, large patterned tote bag and big gray duster. That kind of coat is warm + versatile and looks great dressed down or dressed up. The length is midi + ideal for fall/winter.

Heidi's simple bun + classic aviators give the supermodel a polished, chic look.

To COPY Heidi Klum's airport style, check out gorgeous dusters like this one--- from the UK's It's called the Kate Belted Shawl Collar Coat ($35).

Copy Kim Kardashian West's Affordable Denim Choker Accessory For LESS Than $10!

The most famous reality star on the planet  ALWAYS seems to be miles ahead of fashion's trends.

You might not like ALL the ensembles Kim Kardashian West puts together, but you have to admit that girlfriend is keen on premiering stuff many women want to wear.

Let's look at the choker trend. It remains HUGE. Some people hate the look, because NOT every woman looks gorg in a choker, or feels comfortable wearing one.

But----KK LOVES her chokers, and already last August, she was showing off the DENIM choker.

Some girls laughed at it, but it became a cool + affordable fashion accessory. It's not really jewelry, but, it's very now.......and if you can CUT + SEW, you could make your OWN denim choker.

For lazy chicks like myself, you can buy one for CHEAP here at Forever21. Just $9.90.  A great budget fashion buy.

Not a bad DUPE, for LESS than 10 bucks!

Are you wearing the DENIM choker trend, a la Kim Kardashian West?

Does Daily Sunscreen Go On Before Or After Moisturizer?


You're SUPPOSED to wear it daily, especially on the vulnerable face, neck + decolletage.

But if you also like applying moisturizer, too.......

Which one goes on first--------the sunscreen or the moisturizer?

According to the skin care experts, it depends what ingredients are in your sunscreen, to begin with.

I did some beauty research, and found this great advice from beautifulwithbrains.

CHEMICAL SUNSCREENS......(ie those that contain chemical UV filters like avobenzone, mexoryl, oxybenzone, and octocrylene, to name a few) should be applied BEFORE you put on your moisturizer.

PHYSICAL SUNSCREENS......(contain minerals titanium dioxide and zinc oxide). That means these sunscreens DON'T have to be ACTIVATED, so can be applied AFTER you put on your moisturizer

 My favorite FACIAL sunscreen is by MyChelle----Sun Shield Coconut SPF28, $20.

 This one is worth every penny, absorbs well, is lightweight + smells really good. 

Because MyChelle's contains Translucent Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, it goes on AFTER my moisturizer. Those 2 ingredients are minerals.

Check out MyChelle Dermaceuticals for more information here

Best Drugstore Eye Shadow For LESS Than $5---NYX, Of Course

High intensity + loaded with pigment.

Those details make for great eye shadows. But maybe you don't have the $16 for a MAC.

NYX Cosmetics Nude Matte Eye Shadow is fantastic! We have raved about this brand before, and just bought a couple more.

Best of all.......Each little pot costs UNDER $5.00! We found them for $4.99 here at

Popular Texas TV News Anchor Uses "This" For the Perfect Lip Balm!

We LOVE YouTube and watching the beauty gurus give some fab tips + tricks for great-looking skin, hair, makeup and more.

We started subscribing to Dominique Sachse. She is a stunning TV news anchor for Houston's  KPRC Local 2. See more about her here.

We like Dominique's down-to-earth attitude about life and beauty.

We also like her take on the ultimate lip balm.

Dominique discovered this one once while breast-feeding. The product is known as Lansinoh HPA lanolin cream. We found a tube for $9 at Target.

Yes....It's a cream that soothes, heals and protects sore, cracked nipples.

Dominique applies it EVERY night at bedtime---- NOT there, but on her LIPS, and it is the most amazing lip balm, too.

The cream is 100% natural, containing no preservatives.

It's SAFE for Mom + Baby.

That also means, it can be applied to the lips without any worries.

This is a super beauty tip and two-fold, for those also breast-feeding and wanting softer, smoother lips.

Click on Dominique's YouTube channel here.

Bye-Bye Chapstick.

Kristen Stewart Wows In Smoky Eye With Touch Of Blue

We are LOVIN' this TRENDY smoky eye. And it doesn't appear difficult to create yourself.

Kristen Stewart is showing off the eye shadow look here. Now examine closer, her inner eyes, right by the tear ducts:

We think her eyes look beautiful with just a HINT of blue carefully applied around the tear ducts.

We saw the beauty trend at

Sometimes, you want to try new makeup looks but don't want to go too bold or too trendy, but we think this adds just the perfect blue touch that enhances Kristen's otherwise, black smoky eye.

"I thought it would be a fun twist on a smoky eye to concentrate a color around the tear duct,” explains Stewart’s makeup artist Beau Nelson, who advises that “when anchored over black, a bright color creates a jewel-like effect that's easier to wear than that color alone."

To COPY the look, we suggest a liquid liner in Lancome's LE STYLO WATERPROOF - Long Lasting Eyeliner, Sapphire Blue ($27, at Sephora).

Findation: Cool Website That Finds Your Perfect Foundation Match In Another Brand

If you wear makeup, then you realize how very important a great foundation is for your complexion.

The ideal base will offer protection from the elements, balance to your skin tone, coverage for imperfections, and so forth.

It's hard enough trying to find the perfect foundation that enhances your complexion + bone structure, and when you do choose the perfect foundation, you want it to be available forever.

But unfortunately, sometimes beauty brands discontinue favorite makeup, change the formula, etc.

Now, what?

Thanks to an Australian website called Findation, the company does EXACTLY that. They FIND your favorite foundation shade in ANOTHER brand.

For example, I have worn Revlon's ColorStay foundation in NUDE for combo/oily skin for so-oooo long now. And guess what?

Revlon has RUINED the makeup now, by INCREASING the SPF from 6 to 15.

It's TOO thick a texture + makes my skin OILY now. I knew the brand had MESSED with a really good thing.
Look at the original bottle with the SPF 6, below:

If I insert that brand into Findation's HUGE database, the company will IMMEDIATELY list for me other brands with the SAME nude shade.

I have NOT tried those DUPES yet, but it's wonderful for a girl to have makeup options, right?

Okay.....It's K-Beauty South Korean Style To the Rescue, Ladies

Looking for a flawless, clear, youthful forever complexion?

Well, who isn't?

For us, good skin is NOT a given. We've had to battle back from the sun damage, general aging and whatever else causes imperfect skin.

We have NEVER tried K-Beauty, but younger people seem to know plenty about it and are addicted to the awesome results.

Even the ultra-conservative WallStreetJournal took a good look at K-Beauty.

What is it?!

Here's a great WSJ description:

...."K-Beauty---the umbrella term for all South Korean imports in the skin care, makeup and bath-and-body categories—has been attracting fans in the U.S."

K-Beauty is all about the unusual + supposedly scientifically-advanced formulas,
including stuff like---- moisturizing starfish extract,  firming-and-tightening pig collagen + snail mucin.
Check out this K-Beauty shopping website with tons of complexion beautifiers ---PeachAndLily.

This MIZON SNAIL REPAIR INTENSIVE AMPOULE ($38) is SOLD OUT at the moment, because it's so popular, but they will re-stock soon.

The serum is designed to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines, and troubled skin..

The customer reviews rate the product highly.

Will you try K-Beauty products for a flawless complexion?

Miss The Fringe? Bangs HOT For Fall/Winter 2016/2017

Bangs, fringe, whatever you want to call them, they are ALWAYS a beauty/fashion combo at some point during one of the seasons.

And with Fall on our doorstep, it's time to take the plunge or Big CUT, ladies.

We are tempted---we used to wear blunt bangs for years. Then we finally tired
of them and went just off center part.

Here's what's HOT---the runways showed bangs for Fall/Winter 2016/2017.


Even glam momma Jessica Biel returned to her signature bang beauty with a recent CHOP-CHOP.

I would like to get some clip-on bangs for when I want to join the trendy bangs brigade, and not have to worry about the grow-out process.

How about you-----Are you about to get bangs or skip the look?

If You Wear Platinum Like Kylie, Then Use Olaplex In Between, Girl!

We happen to LIKE Kylie Jenner's brand new platinum locks. We think she wears it well.

However, we believe she looks OLDER than her 19 years. But, hey----who's counting?

We especially LOVE dark brows + blonde hair. Yes, it's usually a No-Go, but we think bold brows + platinum CAN work for some people.

Kylie debuted her new bad a** platinum shade just in time for NY Fashion Week. And her colorist is sharing details:

Priscilla Valles told PeopleStyle that they went silvery platinum and that Kylie's hair appeared to be in great condition to handle the super light locks.

Meantime, bleached hair needs lots of TLC, so CONDITONER is essential:

“I gave her Olaplex treatment that we’re going to be doing once a week just to keep it healthy. I mean from going the level that it went, it was super soft and healthy,” she says. “With styling it all the time it can dry it out, so we’re going to keep treating it.”

For the extra scoop on Kylie's silvery platinum shade, click here.

Want Longer More Beautiful Hair? Then Try Cutting Hair By The Moon!

Take a good look at this colorful LUNAR chart, because it might just be able to HELP you GROW LONGER, THICKER, STRONGER, HEALTHIER + MORE BEAUTIFUL HAIR by a SIMPLE calendar + time-line of the MOON'S cycle:

I know it sounds totally bizarre, but consider the Old Farmer's Almanac and how the popular, longtime publication ALWAYS prints up their Gardening by the Moon Calendar, because those dates are based on the phase + position of the Moon and indicate the best times to GROW crops, turn the sod, sow the grains, etc.

The SAME growth principle applies to HAIR, if we believe a legend in the business, Anthony Morrocco, who tended to the gorgeous heads of Jackie Onassis, Mia Farrow and many others back in the day.

He claims that you need to follow 5 hair goals. He explains the details here at his website, the MorroccoMethod.

Goals for Cutting Hair by the Moon-----

The 5 hair goals with corresponding dates to choose from:

Lengthen: Shocks and excites your hair growth patterns, causing your hair to grow two to three times faster than normal.

Thicken: Promotes the activation of new growth cycles in your bulb and hair follicles that thicken the follicle.

Strengthen: Enables roots, follicles, and bulbs to increase and strengthen your growth patterns, producing stronger and more resilient hair.

Root Work: Shocks the entire growth cycle, aiding your hair and scalp in all aspects of hair growth and scalp improvement, this should be a base in your cutting routine.

Beautify: Improves and evens the texture and sheen of hair as well as enhances and refines waves and/or curls.

We're blown away by this. Anyone else?

Soaking Up the Sun During Labor Day Weekend? Avoid Bikini Bumps

If you're enjoying the searing sun at the beach or lake as you soak up the last days of summer, make sure your bikini area is bump-free, if you know what we mean.

It's so easy to develop annoying little bumps + ingrown hairs when SHAVING or WAXING the most sensitive bikini area.

BUT....there is a great solution. Use the proper prepping ointment and avoid the common irritated bikini area.

Try this by Completely Bare, Bikini Bump Blaster Pads ($9.99 for a jar, at ULTA).

Just apply and swipe across the bikini  area AFTER you remove hair.

According to the Bikini Bump Blaster, it's formulated with key ingredients like Glycolic Acid + Salicylic Acid to help PREP the skin + clean the sebum

This effective solution comes in little disposable pads. Wipe the entire targeted area with a moist pad one to two times a day.

Bye-Bye bumps!

Like Angelina Jolie's Style? Copy Her Loafers for Fall

Angelina Jolie has always been applauded for her modern classic style on the red carpet.

But what about OFF the Hollywood scene?

The big star also nails it on the street, and has taken notice of Angelina's footwear.

Take a look, as the gorgeous actress LOVES wearing  these when she's in and out of airports.

LOAFERS. Never go out of style + instant sophistication.

Plus, surprisingly NOT as expensive,  as we thought these shoes would be.

LESS than $200.  That's right......$170 (traditional $425 retail).

100% Italian leather from Brescia.

As described by the Everlane brand:

An elegant, architectural flat that feels as good as it looks. The hand-polished leather is half chrome-tanned and half vegetable-tanned leather, so it’s super soft but still structured.

Do you like Angelina Jolie's preppy flair?

I have a similar pair of classic black loafers but hardly wear them. No, mine are NOT the $170 pair.

Come fall, this is a great look to put on. I will have to reconsider.

Nice, comfy travel shoes.

Ariana Grande's Beauty Secret For Perfect High Ponytail ---Bungees!

If any star can wear a glam high ponytail, it's Ariana Grande.

Here's the petite cutie a few days ago sporting trendy bangs, too, and a ponytail that ALWAYS stays secure + in place. 

If your hair's misbehaving, but you still want to rock the perfect pony, then wrap one of these around it, says Ariana's stylist Aaron Light, who created the gorgeous style on Tuesday for the star singer.

This is what he uses to SECURE Ariana's ponytail:

This is the Smoothies Bungee Band.  And I could ONLY find them here at Amazon (3 for $7.31).

These are especially effective for thick tresses or those that don't behave when you're trying to style your mane.

Bungee bands are different from regular hair elastics, because they are designed with 2 hooks on each end, enabling you to CLIP your pony together, instead of LOOPING an elastic around it.

Here's how stylist Aaron Light explains it in Allure magazine:

"I love using bungees, especially on clients with thick hair, because you have more control over the hair and can achieve a very tight and secure ponytail. Regular hair bands have a tendency to slip, where bungees really stay put at the base."

Now that's a really good STAR beauty tip!

Try These 2 Cheap Whitening Toothpastes For Extra Brightness----Less Than $5!!

You've heard me talk about WHITER teeth and the quest to BRIGHTEN without busting the beauty budget.

I've been using a 2-punch combo of whitening toothpastes for the past couple of weeks now in the AM + PM.

And you know what?

This double combo is NOT bad.

Okay,so it isn't going to provide the blinding brightness of an in-office dental procedure like ZOOM!, but on the cheap end, I think it lifts minor stains +actually WHITENS.

Here they are:

1. Ultra brite Advanced Whitening Toothpaste ($1.00, at RiteAid or Dollar Tree).

2.  Plus White Toothpaste ($3.00, at Walmart).

LESS than $5 bucks for the TOTAL!!

Can't beat it.

I like to start with the Ultra brite first.....and then LAYER some Plus White on top and brush away.

Great stuff! Try it for 2 weeks and see. You're not wasting a HUGE amount of $$. And if it works for you, then that's a good thing.

iO! Foaming Cleanser: Softer, Smoother, Clearer Complexion. Nothing Else Like it!

We all want clear, smooth, radiant skin that hopefully, NEVER ages. And if we limit our time in the sun, stay away from smoking + not over-do alcoholic beverages, we can MAINTAIN a gorgeous complexion.

How we WASH our faces also matters. We need exfoliation but NOT severe scrubbing, especially if we suffer from break-outs.  Maybe iO!, the gentle iodine soap can help you.

Acne is the ANY age. When we're young, it can destroy our self-esteem.

Just ask model Kendall Jenner, sister of the famous Kardashian family. Kendall's complexion appears flawless these wasn't always that way.

If you're trying to develop smooth, airbrushed skin, then iO! is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G facial foaming cleanser to try. And it has the sensible science to back it up.

I've had the opportunity to try this unique, gentle cleanser of amber-colored foam for a few weeks now, and it's awesome!

iO! actually contains a tiny amount of iodine in it to provide SUPERIOR cleansing, exfoliation + complexion balance. 

It will leave your face + neck feeling so-ooooo soft + smooth, and CLEAR.

iO! foaming facial cleanser has a rare history to it, too, as told to us by the President of iO!, Ann R. Hansen of Portland, Oregon.

Our bodies naturally NEED iodine to make thyroid hormones for various body functions.

Iodine is an antiviral, antiseptic mineral that promotes fast healing. Maybe you have a bottle of tincture of iodine in your medicine cabinet.

Ann's family patented an iodine-based teat drip 20 years ago, for dairy farmers to relieve their cow's dry, wrinkled teats from repeated milkings. That drip remains popular on dairy farms today.

Her family's iO! gentle iodine soap works along those same principles, offering exfoliation for smoother, younger-looking skin, visible lightening of scars + a clear, no-pimpled complexion.

This stuff works! And it's SIMPLE + ECONOMICAL to use.

You only need a pump or two of iO! foam cleanser into your palms.

Apply DRY to your face, feet or hands.....and MASSAGE in.

Leave it on for about a minute. Then RINSE it off.

Your skin will FEEL like a newborn's. Don't believe me? Just try it for yourself and see. You get a BIG 6 oz. bottle for $29.95 + free shipping.

To learn more about iO!, the gentle iodine soap, click here.

I LOVE iO! It's a keeper.

On-Trend: Really Bold In Your Face Lipstick In Colors Beyond The Rainbow

The BOLD + the BEAUTIFUL is MORE than a popular TV soap opera.

When it comes to beauty, vivid lipsticks are so-ooooo HOT at the moment.

If you're UNDER age 40, we say, Go for it!

These bold + beautiful lipsticks are true head-turners in colors that go BEYOND the rainbow.

We believe the giant cosmetics brands like the Maybellines are now making bad girl makeup a mainstream thing.

It was the genius of  Lime Crime makeup founder Doe Deere, who 1st introduced the masses to her incredible vivid color palettes, in bizarro shades, such as this one below:

CEMENT (on sale now, $16, at

Then celebrities like Lipuita Nyong'o started introducing these bold colors while walking the famous red carpet.

And now, Maybelline is DUPING the beauty trend with their OWN line of LOADED BOLDS lipsticks in 20 colors that also stretch the color spectrum. .

Here's their take on it, in Sapphire,  $7.49.

So, this it the HOT look for lips.....Blue, Cement, Squash, Green, Yellow, Purple.

Time to get your FREAK on, ladies.

Have FUN!

Body Blur: Perfect HD Finish To Hide Cellulite, Pigmentation Issues, Broken Capillaries, Etc.

I just learned about a beauty product that a lot of professional makeup artists swear by when you're looking for that smooth, evenly toned pair of legs, arms, etc.

Some women even like to use this on their complexion to achieve that air-brushed, high-definition perfection. It's been developed for BOTH the face + body. Awesome!

What's their secret?

This magic tube of Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish.

Okay, NOT the cheapest at $45 per tube, but maybe worth the beauty splurge.

This is how Vita Liberata's founder describes her gem of a skin tone makeup balancer:

"Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish gives the most flawless skin finish and is great for reducing the appearance of cellulite and spider veins. It's like wearing luxury sheer stockings…everywhere!" 

Seriously, I am tired of using Sally Hansen's Air-Brush Legs, because it RUBS OFF everywhere if you SWEAT. It looks good but can STREAK if you're sloppy or you sweat it off.

This sounds like a wonderful + effective healthy glow product that discreetly HIDES imperfections.

You can find Body Blur here at Sephora.

I need this. Do you?

Get Summer Face + Neck Skin In Shape With Tingling Nighttime Glycolic AHAs

Summertime is a blast for sure, but it's also the season where we probably do MOST damage, namely because we're in the SUN a lot.

You can wait until autumn to repair your skin, but I say to focus on healthy complexions NOW.

If you want FAST, noticeable results, then go for the AHAs or alpha hydroxy acids.
One of my FAVES---glycolic acid. tingles, stings, even burns at times, but it WILL in time:

1. Clear complexion.
2. Smooth and balance skin tone.
3. Soften texture of face + neck.
4. Minimize appearance of pores.
5. Diminish appearance of spots, scars, fine lines + wrinkles.
6. Add a bit of firmness to skin.
7. Exfoliate well to get rid of dead skin cells.
8. Brighten and add a radiant glow.

What's NOT to LOVE about a beauty routine you wear to bed at night?

I am going to give you 2 brands to consider, one high end, the other low end. Both glycolic-based nighttime skin care products are impressive.

 I LOVE glycolic acid, even MORE than Vitamin C serum. Works BETTER for my skin.

Let me add this little piece of advice:

Go slowly when starting a beauty routine with AHAs, like glycolic acid, lactic acid, etc. They can be tough on the face + neck.....and should be used sparingly, until your skin gets used to the product's power.

OLE HENRIKSEN Invigorating Night Treatment™ ($48, at Sephora).

This amazing product features a light gel full of 12 AHA complexes, with glycolic acid topping the list of ingredients.

Reviva Labs, 10% Glycolic Acid Cream ($18.85, at iHerb).

This inexpensive nighttime glycolic acid cream is another excellent choice. It also comes in a 5% glycolic base for those who might wish to begin their routine gently.

Like good glycolic formulas, this one also offers fine texturizing benefits for aging, sun-damaged, or blemished skin.

I'm an AHA believer.....How about you?

J'Adore Dior! Lip Glow And Rosy Glow Blush For Summer Sizzle

PINK LIPS + PINK BLUSH equal summer sizzle and look FAB on every skin tone.

Sure, you might have to adjust the pink to fit your unique complexion, but it is a universal shade that flatters every woman's skin, when it comes to makeup.

Dior makes gorgeous makeup, and no, it isn't the cheapest, but if you have the $$$ to splurge, then we think the stuff is splurge-worthy.

We, especially, LOVE the Dior GLOW line, like these two:

Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in Petal.

I know, $44 for a blush compact sounds crazy BUT----it's really pretty + made beautifully. We found it here at Sephora.

Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink.

Also at Sephora, for $33.

It's a nice, soft, sheer pink with a satin finish.
