Applying foundation and concealer is made infinitely easier and better thanks to the invention of the Beauty Blender. Without it, women were sporting foundation lines and uneven foundation coverage. Thankfully, this little sponge came into my life and made applying makeup flawlessly simple. If you haven’t tried a Beauty Blender yet, stop everything you’re doing […]
Cleansing your face should feel refreshing and invigorating. To achieve that, you have to find the best cleanser for your skin type! Every beauty regimen should include washing your face. Wash at night before bed to remove makeup and the day’s grime, and in the morning to remove dirt and buildup that can occur while […]
We all know what it’s like to be on the lookout for the best foundation, or the even more elusive best full coverage foundation. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to have a naked face by the end of the day. Ugh. Are you tired of putting on a foundation and having […]
Dehydrated, dry skin isn’t fun to find in the mirror, especially when you’re attempting to apply makeup. In addition to increasing water intake, you can soothe your skin with some of the best moisturizers for dry skin. At the local pharmacy or grocery store, the skin care aisle is (more than) overwhelming—so how do you […]
Right before going to the movies on Saturday night, I talked my boyfriend into taking me to Ulta. When I walked in the door, the newest Morphe palettes were staring me in the face and let me tell you; I wasn’t leaving without The Jaclyn Hill Palette. Best decision ever! My biggest problem is that […]
So you were ready to go from dark hair to blonde hair, and it went all wrong? Grabbed that color off the Target shelf thinking that there is no time for the salon, or I can’t afford it right now. OMG, now how do I fix orange hair? Now is the part where we sit […]
So you are looking at getting some hot new shades, but you want to make sure you get the best sunglasses for your face shape. I recently spent the week in California with my boyfriend and his mother. Unfortunately, while we were driving around shortly after we arrived, I sat on my favorite aviators and […]
Let me start by saying, Lanza Keratin Healing Oil is the bomb diggity. I will get to that in just a minute, but first I want to explain oils a little bit.
If you have fine hair like me, oils are typically something we stray away from. They can get heavy and greasy on finer hair textures. Lanza Oil does not.
My hair already didn’t cooperate, so why would I want to add anything that would make it worse?
I wouldn’t, so I was totally against oils. They were dead to me until I had the epiphany of a lifetime!
We have all had that day that our hair (or our children’s hair) is snarled so bad that we can’t even begin to brush through it without taking ibuprofen first. Thankfully, the Wet Brush company has come to the rescue.
It can be a total nightmare to try to get a child to sit still while brushing their hair (the incessant screaming/crying and the “no stop it hurts!”). No one enjoys having to do that.
To be completely honest, I have days that I struggle brushing my own hair! Let me tell you what… If my hair is a hot mess, I don’t want to be seen in public. Period.
When it comes to my face, I am always fighting imperfections. I’m creeping up on 30 years old, and I still get acne on occasion (OMG are you kidding me right now). It’s just a part of life I guess, but I will always do what I can to avoid it.
So- blackheads suck. I am willing to try anything and everything to get rid of them, no matter how ridiculous it is. Face masks, cleansers, moisturizers, wipes; you name it, I’ve tried it.
Thankfully I know what to look for when it comes to skin care products and what ingredients are beneficial.
Being in the beauty industry I have found that lipstick is a staple that can make or break your whole look. Because of this, I am always on the hunt for the longest lasting wear. I need to know that I can go out and not have to worry about going to the powder room every five minutes to check my face.
There are so many factors to consider when choosing a lipstick that you have to weigh out every option.
As a hairstylist let me be honest, I’ve gone through a ton of brushes trying to find the best that will hold up to my daily abuse. On an average day, I do at least 4-5 blowouts. So basically, finding a high-quality brush that will hold up to my abuse is a top priority.
A hairbrush is just a hairbrush though right?
There are tons of different types of brushes out there, especially when you are a stylist. Different sizes, different shapes, different bristles, different cores. I could go on and on about it.
My name is Paulina, and here’s what you need to know about me. I have worked in the beauty industry as a cosmetologist since 2009. I am very passionate about making people feel unapologetically confident in themselves.
Team True Beauty is your one-stop, no BS, everything beauty and lifestyle stop. We all want to feel beautiful and show our best selves to the world, regardless if it’s by using makeup, a specific hair product, or something that shows off our natural beauty like that spectacular new top!
As a professional in the beauty industry, I always research all of my cosmetics before I buy because I don’t want any questionable ingredients in my makeup that could be bad for my skin or otherwise. That’s why, when I was looking for a new makeup to use, Max Factor caught my eye. I checked the list before purchasing and found nothing that would raise any huge red flags.
I was also immediately impressed because as I read about the brand, I found that Mr. Max Factor is in fact, one of the original fathers of cosmetics. After reading that I dove a little bit deeper into the history and could not wait to try out the products. And on top of that, I loved the price point.
