If your knowledge of lip balms stops at Chapstick and Carmex, you’re missing out on some stylish brands that offer extra benefits like being 100 percent natural. Among these Burt’s Bees and Evolution of Smooth (https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/) standout. It’s EOS, as it’s better known, that has celebrities like Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian raving. The lip balm belongs to a larger family of beauty and healthcare products that includes hand lotion, body moisturizers and shaving cream.
What’s special about EOS?
EOS gives you healthier lips naturally. In addition to its 100 percent natural ingredients, 95 percent of its ingredients are certified organic. That means you spread the highest quality product with no harsh chemicals on your lips. These ingredients, including olive oil, beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamins C and E, nourish, moisturize and smooth your lips with a paraben-free, phthalate-free and petrolatum-free formula.
It’s also known for its fun packaging. The original line comes in egg-shaped containers in fun colors. The newer, “Smooth Stick” line provides a more traditional packaging.
Forget old-school lip balm that comes in unflavored and maybe, cherry. EOS lip balm offers an array of tastes in its eggs, including:
In the newer “Smooth Sticks,” you can choose from the following flavors:

Celia Leslie said in her Lime Crime YouTube video that the nineties are coming back in a way that’s both completely bold and entirely chic, and with it, the rise in popularity of intergalactic motifs like stars, aliens, moons, and spaceships. Alongside these motifs, comes the resurfacing of grunge-y pastels, in addition to holographic and metallic textures. Channel these extraterrestrial vibes via your everyday makeup look to let everyone know that you’re ready to take over the universe. (Or that you come in peace. Whatever. It’s your choice.)
Start by applying your base face makeup as usual. Be certain to prime and moisturize for a face that keeps through every layer of the atmosphere. Use a contouring brush to sculpt your face, paying particular attention to the cheek/jawline and along the sides of your nose. Highlight cheekbones, down the nose, above the lip, and on the chin using a silver or lilac-tinted pressed highlighting powder. A great option is the Lime Crime Superfoils Eyeshadow duos, which can double as an ultra shimmery highlight. For this look, consider “Crystal” (in the Crystal/Champagne duo) or “Electric” in the Electric/Barbarella duo. Both of which can be seen in the Tumblr demo, as well as purchased from the Urban Outfitters store.
Use the same, highly-pigmented shimmery silver (as in Crystal) to cover your eyelids, from the inner corners to the outer crease. Then, go in with a darker, bolder shimmery purple shadow (such as “Cosmic” in the Cosmic/Firefly duo, or “Squad” in the Squad/Goals duo) in the outer corners for a blended-to-perfection smokey eye. To really rocket this eye look to another level, line eyes with a sharp cat-eye using the Lime Crime Liquid Liner in Quill. From there, draw two little dots with the liner in the inner corners of your eyes, one on each side of your nose. Line outer bottom lash line with black, or choose a white pencil to make eyes appear bigger. Finish off with a brush of black mascara.
Go for an ultra matte or ultra metallic look for lips. A swipe of Perlees Matte Lipstick in a shade like “Asphalt” or the appropriately-named “Roswell” are certain to pull everything together. For the more daring, go for the Lime Crime Metallic Velvetines, in a shade like Posh or Mercury, or one of the Matte Velvetines in Moonstone or Thistle, both available through the Love-Makeup.co.uk store. The long-lasting formula makes lip-liner unnecessary, so slip on your platforms and get ready to blast them all away. Your starry eyes will leave everyone else starry-eyed.

Wengie is an Australian – Chinese beauty guru and social media phenom. Her Wonderful World of Wengie videos are a fabulous way to watch techniques and get ideas that you normally wouldn’t get to see outside of a salon. With roughly one million fans this is someone that people are really enjoying.
In Wengie’s video, Wengie has just returned from a trip to Japan describes the differences between American and Japanese makeup styles. She does half of her face the American way and half the Japanese way. Wengie first starts by explaining the Japanese trend of egari or gypsy makeup that mimicks what your face would look like if you’ve had a few drinks and you get flushed. She compares this with the Kylie Jenner/Instagram trend. The first thing Wengie does is add something called circle lenses that help to make the eye look larger. These seem to be very popular in Japan.
When starting to apply makeup Wengie discusses the difference in primers. The Japanese primer tends to leave more of a sticky feel, the American side is more dry. Both primers however are for a poreless finish. The BB cream which she uses a sponge to apply leaves a very dewy bright and glowing finish on the Japanese side, where the American side is matte and has yellow undertones. The uses for concealer differ in that Japan uses it to hide flaws and American’s go lighter to highlight. Brows in Japan are not as angular and sharp as American eyebrows and they use a lightening mascara type wand.
The eye shadow is also less obvious and more natural in Japan. A slight wing for the Japanese eyeliner where America the wing is more pronounced. Mascara and lashes are also much different with Japan being understated while American’s have very large lashes. The engari look really takes place with the blush which is placed beneath the eye and around the cheek directly under the eye. The American blush is more angular. The lips are more outlined in America while Japan goes dewey and natural.

Your hair can look and feel wonderful. There are many tips out there for your hair. Some are better then others. A few great tips are ones we already know, for example, trim your hair on a fairly regular basis. Most advisors say to trim your hair every 6 weeks or so, but it will depend on you and your hair. Some other great advice is to color less often, air dry your hair (instead of blow drying it) whenever possible, and don’t go over board on hair products. Conditioner is more important then shampooing, although, having clean hair is very important.
Wen By Chaz is a product that works very well on hair. The Cleansing Conditioner takes the place of many products, in one step, which is also very helpful advice for your hair (by using less products on your hair). This wonderful product takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, leave in detangler, and a leave in conditioner. There are no sulfates either. Wen will help you strengthen and moisture your hair. This product is good for any hair, with any texture, saving you money by not having to buy a bunch of different products. WEN cleansing conditioners are available on Sephora, Amazon and Guthy-Renker, come at the fair price of $40 dollars a bottle.
