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.

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.”

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?
