The first step to achieving a perfect contour is prepping your face. Apply a small amount of Frankie Rose’s Prime Addiction and let it set for a minute or two. Using a beauty.blender sponge, apply your favorite Frankie Rose foundation and go back to cover any blemishes with your favorite Frankie Rose concealer. Once you’re done prepping your face, it’s time to get that Instagram-worthy contour!

Get Through December With Our Monthly Beauty Picks

December is finally here and so are our beauty picks for the month! As always, our beauty picks are chosen carefully to make your month a little brighter and help you fall in love with something new. Since Christmas is just weeks away, our beauty picks will also make great gifts for your loved ones.

With the weather cooling down and winds picking up, keeping your hair healthy and shiny can be quite the challenge. Between warmer showers and using hot styling tools, the moisture in our hair can become quickly depleted. To avoid brittle, dry strands this winter, we suggest you try the Aquis hair towels and turbans. Oftentimes, little things we do can cause serious damage to our hair, especially when it's wet. Since it's at its most vulnerable state, it's important to treat it as gently as possible. Aquis towels are made with state of the art microfiber that is soft and delicate on your hair. The fibers in Aquis towels and turbans are fine and weaved in a special design that acts as a channel for water. This technology draws the water away from your hair unlike a regular towel that sits heavily on your head. This allows your hair to dry a lot faster and create less friction that can cause tangles and frizz. Since the excess water in your hair will be absorbed, you'll find yourself spending less time drying it with heat. If you're tired of dealing with damaged, dry hair, then you need an Aquis towel in your bathroom. For even better results, use a leave in conditioner and a Wet Brush for gentle detangling.

The Great Debate

When it comes to makeup, there’s no one right or wrong way to apply it.  Most makeup artists will use some kind of tool for application, but ultimately, however you feel comfortable is the best way to apply.  Some beauties reach for a brush to apply foundation, some ladies prefer sponges, and some lovelies swear by using their fingers.  So, which is best for you? Read on and learn more about this hotly debated topic!

Ok, you apply your foundation with your fingers.  It’s not all bad, some beauties claim they get better, more even coverage by blending with their digits. However, there are downsides as well.  On your fingers, you have all kinds of oils and bacteria.  If you have an oily or combination complexion, and have issues with a shiny t-zone, touching your your face is a major oh no-no.  These oils and germs will transfer to your face, not only contributing to a shiny complexion, but it can also cause breakouts.  The blending may be easier, but the coverage is much more sheer.  And then there’s the whole “I have makeup all over my hands” thing. The verdict: good for a touch up on the fly, but use a tool to do the heavy lifting.
