This Body Oil is a Beach Vacation in a Bottle

We don’t get enough beach time in our lives. This oil has a gorgeous scent that makes us feel like we do. Just a few drops gives skin this alluring sheen we can’t get enough of. It doubles as a light moisturizer, and gives us summer glow we crave for a night out. We especially love the glow it gives our décolletage, shoulders, and legs.

NARS Monoi Oil
What it is: A lightweight, gardenia-scented body oil.

What it does: Hydrates skin with a light, natural fragrance and gives it a glow. Also helps to prevent peeling.

What we liked: The light fragrance of the Tahitian gardenia indigenous to French Polynesia makes this oil smell like someone bottled up a tropical vacation. The oil is light with a luxurious feel, and our skin practically drinks up the coconut oil. Unlike the original Body Glow I from Nars, this won’t give a skin a little extra bronze shimmer, but it will give a smoothe, silky look and feel to skin where applied. Plus the little tiare flower in each bottle is a nice touch.

What we didn’t like: The price tag. We’d bathe in this every day if we could, but for now, we’re rationing every last drop.

Price: $59

A Huda Beauty Mini Makeover at Harper’s Bazaar in NYC!

Hey My Loves! I had SUCH a great time meeting many of you in NYC at Sephora Times Square for the launch of my Formula X collaboration! I also made a quick stop at the Hearst Tower during my whirlwind trip to meet with some fabulous beauty editors. I even did a quick Facebook Live session with Harper’s Bazaar, showing their senior digital beauty editor Jenna Rosenstein how to get a quick effortless daytime look using the Liquid Matte, Rose Gold eyeshadow palette, and lashes! Watch below for the full video if you missed it!!

What Do You Think About the Ear Makeup Trend??

Hey my loves! You might have seen the new ear makeup trend sweep the runways this season at shows like Louis Vuitton, Opening Ceremony and Proenza Schouler. Models had hints of glitter, gold, silvers, and other colors outlining or covering whole parts of their ears. I decided to try my own twist on it using my sister, Mona, as my model. What do you think?! Would any of you be rocking it soon?

Huda beauty - bobbi brown brow gel 1
in Makeup, product review

A Dream Product for Natural Looking Brows!

We love Bobbi Brown’s range of wearable shades and high quality products, and her Long-Wear Brow Gels are no exception. But where does it stand in the spectrum of eyebrow needs? Here’s what we thought:

Huda beauty- bobbi brown brow gel 1

What it is: A waxy, tinted brow gel housed in a sleek mini, black compact.

What it does: With the help of a brow brush, waxy pigmented gel can easily help fill in sparse areas of the brows.

What we loved: True to the Bobbi Brown spirit, this is best for a more natural approach to brows. The combo of pigment and beeswax helps achieve a natural, fuller look. It feels a bit like pomade for brows. We found it’s best for filling in sparse areas of the brows without looking like overkill. The color range (17 total) are also very close to natural hair colors (we love Saddle for brunettes) and shades for highlights to give hair the look of texture.

What we didn’t like: While great for filling in brows, because of its waxy nature, it’s not the best for buildable, detailed work (such as defined strokes mimicking the look of natural hairs). A good pick if you’re looking for a little more volume with a more natural approach to brows. Also note, while it is water-, sweat-, and humidity- resistant, it can still rub off by mistake.

Price: $26

Weird Makeup Primers: Lube, Laxative, or Vagisil?!

Hey My Loves!! I wanted to do a little test to see if there were any affordable substitutes for makeup primer that you can get in the pharmacy, and let me just say…things got a little weird. Besides my tried and true primers like Nivea Men’s Aftershave Balm and olive oil, I gave milk of magnesia, lube, and Vagisil (an feminine anti-itch cream) a try. Why? You’d be surprised that these products contain a lot of the same gentle ingredients like glycerin, and dimethicone that a lot of your primers have in them. So why not give it a shot? To see which ones worked out and which failed (miserably), watch the whole video and let me know what you think!

Hope you enjoyed the video! Do you use any weird makeup primers? Leave a comment and let me know!

How to Do a Quick Messy Bun!

Let’s be real…we don’t always have a lot of time to do our hair. That’s why I like to default to a messy bun, but I make it office-ready by flat ironing some loose pieces and using root cover on any exposed areas of my scalp, I can quickly make the style look full and chic. Not bad for 60 seconds right? Check it out below!

Your Quick Guide to BECCA Highlighters (and the best one for you)

When it comes to highlighters, BECCA, maker of the famous Champagne Pop, has a full range to make sure your glow game is on point. But perusing them along the shelves at Sephora can be confusing if you’re a highlighter newbie. For starters, they come in three different consistencies: a liquid, pressed powder, and poured crème which have subtle but specific differences. Luckily, BECCA Style Director, Kerry Cole, was on call to answer all our highlighter q’s. Read on to get her tips on how to choose the best one for you!
becca highlighters

Can you tell us the difference between the three BECCA highlighters, and the kind of finish you can get with each?

“The liquid is a sheer, lightweight cream that has light-reflecting pearls that gives you a subtle glow. It’s great to mix with your foundation from a lit-from-within look. The pressed powder is a creamy powder for a high-shine finish. Finally, the poured crème gives you a mattified luminosity – a more sophisticated shimmer.”

Which highlighter would you recommend for different skin types?

“I find the liquid or poured crème formulas work best for dry or more mature skin since they add a little hydration to skin. Combination skin types can really wear any consistency, but I’d recommend oily skin types to stick to a powder or crème formula.  

The shades are so pretty – what are your recommendations for the different skin tones?

“For light skin, I love soft, pale tones with golden highlights, like Moonstone or Pearl. For medium skin tones, opal, golden, or soft pink are so beautiful like Opal or the Rose Gold shades. For dark skin tones, anything with golden, bronze, or coppery highlights are perfect, like Topaz.”

So to recap:

  • Liquid highlighter: Good for a subtle glow and easier to mix with foundation for a touch of brightness. Best for dry, mature, and combination skin types.
  • Pressed powder: Good for a high-shine finish. Best for normal, combination, and oily skin types.
  • Cream highlighter: Good for a mattified shimmer. Best for dry, mature, and combination skin types.

Kerry Cole’s highlighter shade recommendations for:

  • Light skin: soft, pale tones with golden highlights
  • Medium skin: opal, golden, and soft pink
  • Dark skin: golden, bronze, or coppery highlights

Which highlighter would you pick? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Beauty Glossary: Yaaas

Yaaas /ya·sss/

A more punctuated use of the word “yes,” commonly used to express heightened excitement of a situation.

Note: Particularly useful after matching your right eyeliner to your left, upon finding a extra bling-ey cheekbone highlighter, or general admiration of a friend’s #OOTD. Often followed by “queen” or “girl” as user gets increasingly comfortable.

ex. “That liner is on point though, Yaaas girl!”
