  • Office-Friendly Beauty Tips that Aren't Too Bland

    Caio Mello Every girl wants to go to the office with her best face forward. We spend so much money and time on makeup and hair products, we should be able to flaunt it, right? Well, maybe, maybe not. Our way of primping may get us bonus points with our girlfriends and on a date night, but when it comes to the office, less can definitely be more. We spoke to Human Resources Recruiter Angel Ulanday to find out the scoop on what looks might get us ahead and which ones could hold us back.

    By Danielle Gray

    Ulanday's job is to recruit human resources professionals-a career she's been in for thirteen years. Our appearance at work is extremely important, even more so during the interview process. "As a recruiter the first thing we're looking at is someone's appearance. It's like when you meet for a date. I always look to see how well-groomed they are because as recruiters we're thinking, Is this person vested into it? Is the look too forced? Is this a natural look? Is this a look for today and not

  • 4 Ways to Style Summer Bangs

    Getty ImagesSummer bangs can be a pain in the butt. There's nothing fun about a sweaty patch of hair on your forehead, but at the same time we just can't let go of our look! Stylist Mark Perez of The Mint Salon in New York gave us four tips on how to pull them off in scorching 90-degree weather.

    By Ariel Nagi

    Give them more volume
    When blowdrying your bangs, round brush them away from your face either to the side or upward, slightly curling them to add a little more volume. Adding more volume means the hair itself will be pulled away from your forehead to prevent sweating.

    Use a flat iron
    Adding a bit more heat in the summer helps the style last longer. Humidity is quick to pouf up your hair. You also want to stray away from using too many product so your hair can feel as light as possible.

    Take weight off
    Have your stylist trim your bangs with a razor. This technique takes weight off without making your hair appear too thin. The less

    By Ariel Nagi


    Nothing makes me cringe more than seeing girls rock the chola eyebrow look. You know the one where you shave your eyebrows off just to pencil in really skinny ones? It looks, for lack of a better word, tacky. So I chatted it up with one of the best brow ladies in town, Saajida O'Quinn of The Mint Salon in New York, the woman responsible for Lala Anthony's perfect arch. The fact is, eyebrow shape goes hand in hand with your bone structure. Here's the real way to measure your eyebrows, proving that those skinny things do not go with your face!

    1. The inner corners of your brows should directly align with the outer corners of your nostrils. Use a brow pencil to measure, like the illustration above. If it doesn't line up correctly, it means you are taking too much hair off the middle and need to give it time to grow back.

    2. To determine how high your arch should be, tilt the pencil diagonally, lining the it up to

  • Ditch Mayo for Avocado in Deviled Eggs

    Krystyna ChavezBy Krystyna Chavez

    Yesterday I attended a snack convention, which was a little overwhelming but I learned a lot about where the world of snacks is headed and what consumers are interested in. Basically people want to get more fruits and veggies into their diet while not compromising on taste or gaining weight...shocker. One of my favorite stands was of course Avocados from Mexico.

    I personally really love avocado and grew up eating it whether in guacamole, sliced in a taco, or with huevos rancheros for breakfast. You can use it in so many ways and they are packed with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals like vitamin B, E, and K, and are only 50 calories per ounce containing "good fats" you don't have to feel guilty about.

    Below is a recipe to make deviled eggs, but instead of using mayo it calls for avocado. It's just as good as regular deviled eggs just a little creamier and healthier, definitely a must-have! For more deliciousness with Avocados

  • The Best Makeup for Allergies

    Fabio Heizenreder By Danielle Gray

    Just when you thought you were cleared of the allergy season, here comes a whole new set of allergens in the summer months: higher pollen counts, weeds, mold, and insect bites can bring on a steady string of reactions. Summer is supposed to be all about laying on the beach, dipping in the pool, and showing off your gams in those short-shorts-not doubled over indoors nursing a box of tissue because your eyes and nose won't stop running. So what's a girl to do when all she wants is to work on her tan and stay pretty all summer but summer allergies are throwing a monkey wrench in her game?

    Go makeup free

    Use this time to show the world that you still look fabulous even without the war paint. Keep your brows groomed though to help frame that gorgeous face of yours. But if you can't do without makeup, try these four other tips.

  • How to Wear Your Hair and Makeup in Humid Weather

    CosmopolitanCosmopolitanYou don't have to avoid makeup altogether when the weather hits 80 degrees. We asked experts for their heatproof tips on avoiding a summer meltdown.

    By Milly Almodovar

    1. Fake your hairdo
    Instead of spending money on dry shampoo, use baby powder. Baby powder instantly revives hair. Apply at the hairline and crown, and follow with a conditioning product like Ted Gibson Tame it Shine Lotion, $20.

    2. Keep your roots and ends hydrated

    The sun's rays can be really drying. Nourish your tips with leave-in conditioners and nourishing oils. We love Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, $33, and Kitoko Oil Treatment, $26.70, which tames frizzy hair.

    3. Keep your skin cool
    To normalize the pH of your skin, go for oil based cleansers. "These dissolve dirt the fastest, including on oily skin. They also prevent pores from clogging," says Tracy Tamaris, training director for South African skincare brand Environ. We love these two products: Murad
