7 Things in Your Makeup Bag That Could Be Making You Sick

1. Mascara. Do you know how often you should be replacing your tube of mascara? Every four months. And how often do you actually replace it? If you're anything like most of the population, once in a blue moon – and before that time comes, you'll probably share it with friends. 

A 2014 survey showed that 70 percent of women use their mascara for way too long, generating a build up of bacteria and putting them at risk of severe eye infections, so you should really ditch the old, grimy wand. "It's the product that has the shortest shelf life. Your eyes are a sensitive area, so not worth the risk," explains Natalie Wright, senior makeup artist at 

If you do end up with an infection such as conjunctivitis, you should stop replace your mascara immediately afterward to avoid the risk of recontamination. 

2. Lipstick. This is kind of a toughie, because lipsticks appear to last forever if you don't use them everyday, and no one wants to spend $20 just to throw the tube away every 18 months, but that is the official guideline for replacement. 

Storing your lipsticks in the fridge can slow the break down of the parabens and essential oils that prevent germs, as does "cleaning" your lipstick by wiping off the top layer before use if it's been out of rotation for a while, but even product that's had these preventative measures can retain enough bacteria to cause spots and sores. 

And if your lipstick changes in color or consistency or starts to smell funny, toss it straight in the garbage, favorite shade or not. 

3. Makeup brushes
. "Makeup brushes carry the most germs as they go all around the face, are often stored in unhygienic conditions, and are only washed on average once every four weeks! If you make one change, then I would advise you to wash your makeup brushes regularly and store them in a case that is also germ-free," says Natalie. 

"Investing in a sanitizing mist is definitely worth it." You should spritz the brush with the spray every time you use it, and wash them weekly, ideally. Not doing so can worsen acne, and exacerbate other skin problems too. 

"Never blow excess powder off brushes!" she adds. "Just think of all the bacteria you are blowing ONTO your brush."

4. Eyeliner 
 "Your pencils are the easiest to 'clean' — you can just sharpen them and the top layer with any bacteria on it will be instantly removed. You can still spray it with a sanitizing mist as well," Natalie advises. 

However, while it's less hassle to keep on top of your pencil hygiene, they're not immune from risk. Like your mascara, if you're using them on your eyes, they can easily cause and spread infection, and long-term use without regular cleaning can even eventually cause damage to your vision. 

To avoid this, stop applying eyeliner inside the lash line, as this blocks the oil glands that protect your cornea, and replace your pencils at least every 18 months. 

5. Glitter
. We've got sad news for fans of a sparkly eye. Coarse grains of glitter can be really risky for your peepers. Both through application and wear, glitter particles can fall into your eyes and cause significant irritation, and even cause corneal abrasions, spelling bad news for your sight long-term. 

Unlike many other items of makeup, safety isn't necessarily about keeping your glitter products clean or replacing them more often, so if you have particularly sensitive eyes or wear a lot of glitter on a regular basis, it might be time to kick the habit altogether (or wean yourself off with a metallic eye instead!) 

6. Foundation. 
"Officially, foundation should last 12 months, but if you are dipping your fingers into the product, it is best to replace it sooner, after six months," says Natalie. "Always wash your hands before you start — obvious, but easy to forget!" 

It's not just liquid foundation that can cause problems either — in terms of mineral foundation, the particle size means it carries a similar risk to glitter if it gets anywhere it shouldn't, and Web MD reports that a small number of women may also be sensitive to bismuth oxychloride, an ingredient that's present in some of these products to give them their pearly finish. 

If your foundation appears to be causing you any type of irritation, you should visit a dermatologist to find out which ingredient might be causing it, and avoid this component in future.

7. Eyelash curlers
. Even if you're a pro at washing your brushes, I bet your curlers fall by the wayside from time to time. However, the principle remains the same: leaving them clogged with dirty or old makeup and applying them to your eyes on a daily basis is basically asking for contamination, and the chances are higher if the rubber pads are cracked or stiff. 

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but not only can you do cosmetic damage snapping your lashes with your curlers, old eye shadow and mascara get stuck to them, meaning that you can once again spread bacteria to the eye itself. Get into the routine of wiping off your curlers every time you use them, and wash alongside your brushes as frequently as you can with mild soap. 

Meet Your New Counter-Intuitive Favorite Face Cleanser

It's basically the opposite of everything you've ever been told to use.

Meet Your New Counter-Intuitive Favorite Face Cleanser

Washing your face isn't the most exciting task, but we may have just kicked it up a notch or three. PCA Skin has three new bars—yes, bars—that will definitely have you rethinking your cleanser. Yeah, we know your mom always told you never to use soap on your face, but this isn't soap, so hear us out.

For one, the bars come in jars that help keep your bar going (and that make it easy to tote them to the gym) and two, they *work* exactly how you'd want them to. (Sounds logical, but as anyone who's ever used face know the struggle.)

"Our three treatment bars are designed to address specific conditions," says Ivana Veljkovic, director of research and development for PCA. "The Pigment Bar addresses skin discoloration with azelaic acid, the Blemish Control Bar treats acne with 2 percent salicylic acid, and the Dry Skin Relief Bar relieves the symptoms of a variety of dry skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema with 3 percent salicylic acid. The convenient jar makes it great to leave in the shower and they are also great to use with sonic cleansing brushes."

New skincare trend? You know we're all like 🙋.

Why You Should Switch to a Water-Based Foundation This Summer

Your skin = thirstay.​​​

Why You Should Switch to a Water-Based Foundation This Summer

When water-based foundations first hit the market after World War II, women went crazy for the stuff as they provided a less cakey, more natural-looking alternative to the oil-based or powder options of the decades prior. Equal parts weightless and buildable, these formulas are just as beloved to this day and keep getting better, especially if you're oil prone. From the drugstore hero to the most luxurious formulas in the game, ward off a shiny forehead this summer with these H20-happy foundations.

The brand's most natural-looking foundation, this sheer, easy-to-blend cream will give you medium to full coverage depending on how you layer it. Oil-free and formulated with coconut water and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin moisturized, just be wary that it's not too too dewy or hydrating if you have suuuper oily skin. 
Too Faced Born This Way Absolutely Perfection Foundation, £

Finding that happy medium between providing soft, yet solid coverage without drying out the skin, this water-like, gel-serum foundation works on ALL skin types and provides SPF 30 protection. Plus, it comes in a cool dropper bottle.
MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation, £

This formula is expensive, but not for nothing as it really does deliver on its "post-facial glow" promise. Made with mineral from the deep waters of Bretagne (fancy!), it brightens the skin by reflecting light to eradicate facial shadows, resulting in a glowy soft focus finish.
Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation SPF 15

Burberry's illuminating pearlescent primer can be worn on its own or mixed with foundation to create a dewy glow that never reads too shiny or sparkly. If you're looking to add radiance to a dull winterized complexion before summer, this is your stuff.

7 Things That Happen When You Wear Black Lipstick to Work

A cautionary tale.

7 Things That Happen When You Wear Black Lipstick to Work

Sadly, our reality isn't a Beyoncé music video or March Jacobs' Fall 2016 show, which means black lipstick worn IRL will always be a little jarring. Badass, but jarring. So when I decided to wear it at the office recently, I knew there'd be a slew of reactions—and pitfalls because dark pigments are as understandably demanding as his Purple Majesty.

Full disclosure: When I tried this experiment, I wore Bite Beauty's Black Truffle from their Amuse Bouche collection. It isn't 100% black as it has violet undertones, but it ended up being a fortuitous tribute to his Purpleness as I wore it on the day he died. (I'm devastated, can you tell?)

Anyways, here are a few things that will inevitably happen if wear black, or really any other super-dark lip shade, to work.

1. People will stare at your lips while you're talking to them. 

If they don't say anything about your gothic lips, but they're thinking about saying something. Trust.

2.If someone *is* going to say something, it will be a compliment.

That was my experience at least and I'm preeetty sure everyone meant it. And yes, I work in a creative field and things aren't as buttoned-up, but if it doesn't go against your office dress code, I think you'll be surprised at how positively people will react. I was.

3. You'll feel like HBIC.

The thing about statement lipstick is that it automatically amplifies what you're wearing. Because of this, I felt like a much cooler version of myself. It's kind of like going bleach blonde à la Taylor Swift. It makes you this whole new, edgier person.

4. Eating gracefully will be damn near impossible.

See our list of lip-color-friendly foods. But regardless of how careful you are, be prepared for messy-as-hell-looking coffee cups, bite marks on your sandwiches, and lip color bleeding if you're so daring as to grab soup for lunch.

5.You're going to need to reapply your color at least 1,004 times because perfection is non-negotiable.

This means you've got to have a hand mirror and your choice lipstick at arm's length at all times. If you don't, you'll pay a dear, dear price. (See below).

6.At some point, you're going to forget you're wearing black lipstick.

At the end of the work day, when you're completely worn down by all of your to-do's, you'll be in such a daze that you forget about the super-needy lip you're wearing. You'll smile, head nod, and even talk to people without realizing that you've swallowed half your lip color and you look like you've just downed seven glasses of red wine. You'll vow never to make the same mistake again.

7. Happy hour, anyone?

After fixing the mess that was your neglected dark lip, you'll be back in the I'm-feeling-myself-zone and cursing yourself for not having made after-work plans. You want, nay NEED to be seen. So you'll either make some with your always-done-for-happy-hour friend or coworker. My suggestion for a watering hole? A wine bar that will have a nice, purply glass of shiraz waiting for you.

5 Mascara Colors You *Need* to Try This Summer

5 Mascara Colors You *Need* to Try This Summer

Black just became boring.

I'm not knocking black mascara—it's classic. But with summer nearly upon us and music festival style informing so many of the beauty trends, color is more important than ever. And swiping it on your lashes is not only the easiest way to inject a taste of the rainbow, but it's the coolest way to make your eyes pop/pop style (that's Drake speak for "show off"). Here, find five head-turning shades and the mascaras that will give 'em to you.


Particularly flattering on brown and hazel eyes, yellow electrifies the flecks around the iris and marries well with black or white accent liner.

RMK W Color Mascara in Dark/Gray Yellow


A cooler-than-cool statement with spidery fringe, it'll bring warmth to every eye color.

Givenchy Beauty Noir Couture Volume Mascara in Blue Taffeta


Not for the faint of heart, hot pink is especially dramatic when paired with light eyes.

Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara


Because they're opposites on the color wheel, violet-hued mascara with green eyes = minds blown. True story.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash in Plum


Perhaps the most subtle way to rock neon, lime green works with all eye shades and begs to be worn with your summer brights.

How To: Effortless Beach Waves For Short Hair

Nothing beats gorgeous, beachy waves that look effortless. You often see this on women with longer hair, but what about us gals with shorter locks? This tutorial will help you create stunning beach waves for short hair in no time!
Get a gorgeous “I woke up like this” look with this step by step tutorial!

How To Create Beach Waves For Short Hair | Effortless Beachy Waves
When medium haircuts spiraled the internet, it inspired a ton of women to chop off their long locks (myself included). But it seems now we’re getting a bit bored and starting to miss all the styles we could create with our longer hair.

This tutorial will bring excitement to your shorter hair and show you exactly how to create those gorgeous beachy waves we see Victoria’s Secret models master. So if you’re in love with the beach goddess look, read on to find out how you can get effortless beach waves for your short hair.

What You’ll Need:
1. A 32mm barrel curling iron
2. Dry shampoo
3. Gloves (in case you’re not familiar with using curling irons)
Tip: Curls look so much better two days after you washed your hair. If you just washed, go ahead and put on some dry shampoo to improve the texture so that the curls stay longer.

Step 1: Brush through your hair
Make sure you don’t have any knotted hair. This will help when you begin curling your hair.

Step 2: Section it off
NEVER curl your hair in one go. Create 3 or 4 (depending on how thick your hair is) sections and start from the bottom by clipping the rest upwards.

Step 3: Start by getting a small section of your hair

Step 4: Curl this section!

Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4
Until you reach the top part of your sectioned hair.

Step 6: Loosen
After curling all your hair, run your fingers through to loosen everything up.

Step 7: Spray with hairspray
When spraying, make sure the bottle is at least 1 foot away from your hair.

Step 8: Adjust
Repeat steps 6 and 7 if you feel you’re not satisfied with the results.

And you’re done!

Tip: For better results, sleep with this hairstyle on to create the gorgeous, effortless “I woke up like this” beach waves the next day!
