July 24 is the day to reach out to those extended family members and let them know how much you care.

Maybe you round up your crew and get together for a reunion or a backyard barbecue. Not that close? Then take the time to text your mom’s brother’s annoying kid a penguin GIF and suggest he chill out. If you’re curious about which celebrities will be relaxing in the shade of their shared family tree this National Cousins Day, click through and check out some famous sets of cousins, some we all knew about and some even they only recently discovered. Don’t worry if all of your cousin plans fall through this year. Begin Slideshow. Sally Hershberger Hair Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Shampoo, 8.5 Fluid Ounce : Hair Shampoos : Beauty. 4 Treatment Essence Formulas, Compared. Six months after getting my skin analyzed by SK-II, I was gifted a full-size sample of their legendary Facial Treatment Essence.

I used it day and night until the last drop, I truly have noticed a difference in my skin. So has the world at large. My congested nose looks 60% more clear, and my skin is plump. Consider me Frauline Maria in the valley. What exactly in the brew could have caused this change? After trying other brands’ efforts in this category, I can say that the effects vary. The Japanese OG: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence SK-II landed on my Holy Grail list like so many others before.

Amazon. Amazon. HYPED-UP KOREAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS 1: Are They Really Worth It? April Skin, Banila Co, Snail Products. MY NIGHT TIME ASIAN SKINCARE ROUTINE | ft. Foreo Luna Mini 2. My Morning Korean & Japanese Skincare Routine | The Beauty Breakdown. Korean Skincare 101: My Current Skincare Routine + Soko Glam Dry Skincare Review! 3 Looks For 3 Imaginary Punk Go-Go Girl Bands. Ardency Inn’s new collection of eye shadows, dubbed Modsters, is totally inspiring in its potential uses. The brand has cozied up to NYC's downtown music scene, choosing Dee Dee Penny of Dum Dum Girls as the collection campaign model. Enriched with Manuka honey (The Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman of all honeys), the powder formulas are super dense with pigment and smooth like, well, honey.

I tried out three of the most vibrant colors to create some mod looks that wouldn’t be out of place in my imaginary punk go-go girl bands (that’s a genre, right?). Imaginary band names and inspiration looks below... The Plastic Peacocks OK, so technically the peacocks with the colorful tail swag are boys, but that doesn’t mean my fictional girl band can’t cop some flair. An eye shadow brush will do the trick to spread the color all over your lid and into the crease. Using a liquid liner pen, I drew the top line first and then connected it to my eye’s outer corner.

Royal Riffs The Tangerine Twiggys. How To Get Away With Clip-In Bangs. Sable's Take: For two hair-obsessed youthful humans such as Danielle and I, with many a trip down the fringed road, we’ve come out the other side for better or worse, foreheads uncovered. We both however, became a pair of giggling doofuses playing around with these Clip-In Bangs made by Hairdo. Wigs in general are pretty silly to play around with.

But a frontal hairpiece, while seemingly extra silly in theory, actually can look quite convincing. BEHOLD: I have a love-hate relationship with bangs. Clip-in bangs, however, are the one-night-stands of bangs--sans weird next-day feelings. The strands don’t feel waxy or get tangled together--they certainly don’t feel like real hair, but they’re a step-up from any old wig. Each option is varied with highlights to look more “realistic,” but unfortunately the Ginger Blonde color was a bit too brassy to match my platinum perfectly. I could learn a thing or two from her about faux-hair styling.... Danielle’s Take: Your turn: Who's tried clip-in bangs?

Beauty Inspiration On Instagram: 3 Looks To Try. Whenever I fall into a beauty rut, I generally find myself double-tapping countless random Instagrams from girls I have never and probably will never meet. Despite its intolerance for all-caps usernames, Instagram is a great creep-portal for spying on exes, spying on potential future exes, and of course, admiring the style and beauty of strangers. I’ve tapped "follow" on quite a few random accounts: feeds filled with attractive selfies, cute animals, and/or envious travel documentation.

This fall I'm looking to Instagram to inform my makeup choices. Here are a handful of my favorite beauty “likes” of late. Graphic White Eyeliner Via @connectedtofashion I found this stark white cat-eye while searching #whiteeyeliner looks one day. I did the same thing, brushing the #2 shade in Vincent Longo’s Untitled Eye Shadow Trio all over my upper lip and above the crease, as well as on my lower lash line. Gold-Rimmed Eyes Via @isabelarcelia I don’t know Isabel IRL, but we have a couple mutual friends. The 5 Products That Have Made Belif My Favorite All-Natural Korean Beauty Brand. There are loads (seriously, LOADS) of Korean skincare brands out there, lots of which offer similar products, but each one often has a star product of its own. After all, in a particularly rabid beauty culture, the competition is really stiff so we (the consumer) are spoiled for choice when it comes to which essence, toner, serum, ampoule, face pack or emulsion we want to throw our money at.

My love for K-beauty products is seconded only by my love for natural skincare products, so when I got wind of one all-natural Korean beauty brand, Belif, I had to check them out hard, in all their natural glory. I’ve talked about their toner before—it’s my go-to morning toner, swiped on right after cleansing. You can squirt a drop in your hands and pat it on, too. Belif’s star product is The True Cream – Moisturizing Bomb. It contains things called comfrey leaf and a moisture formula that may as well be like raindrops parceled up in each molecule. Product Cocktailing: The CliffsNotes Version of Your Skincare Routine. I'll be the first person to tout a comprehensive skincare regimen. I am also the person who hits snooze at least twice and is constantly mind-bargaining how much I can actually put off until tomorrow. The two attitudes are kind of mutually exclusive to the point where at times, I'll cut corners if I'm really tired (a sin akin to sleeping in makeup, but possibly worse because I'm already taking it off but in a half-assed manner).

Rather than just skip a skincare step (since I'm neurotic enough about that, I'll convince myself upon waking up that having not used a serum is the reason my skin looks dull in the a.m.), I'll find myself occasionally joining two like-functioned products to team up in the application process. So far, I'm into the results. I wouldn't say it's necessarily the best way to make your products super-efficient, since most beauty products need to be emulsified together via machines and stuff. But it's a way to get more products on your face quicker. It got me thinking... 8 Korean Beauty Products I Loved Long Before Sephora Made K-Beauty Mainstream. Judging by the fact that nearly every Sephora is rolling out the banners proclaiming, “Hey, K-beauty is a THING now, guys, and we are selling it!”

I can firmly say that Korean beauty is just about hitting max acclimation into the global beauty infrastructure of “gimme” and “now.” Those of us in the biz have known this for a few years now, but it’s cool to see all of our hard ranting and raving finally paying off and to have much more access to those covetable skincare products and cosmetics in the Western hemisphere. All it took was one essence and I was hooked. Fast-forward about a year and my entire medicine cabinet is filled with Korean skincare products. I find that not only is the packaging cute and thoughtfully constructed, the products WORK and don’t cost an arm and a leg to have. That said, let the ranting begin! I didn’t use toner up until about a couple months ago. Belif is one of the fewer K-beauty brands that formulates with all-natural ingredients. Essences, man. T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum - Drunk Elephant. I waited a few weeks after purchasing this product to consider writing a review, since I didn't see immediate, consistent results like some others seemed to.

I had a "purge" period (may have been hormonal, but nevertheless) - I did break out a bit on my forehead and nose, but it cleared up quickly. After about three weeks of use, honestly, my skin looks better without make-up than with it. I think that speaks to the effectiveness of this product in and of itself! I've always had irritation and texture issues (mainly on my forehead, caused by hair products) but now the skin looks and feels smooth as ever. I have genetically gigantic pores, so there's really no shrinking them, but TLC helps keep them cleaned out and appearing smaller. Minus a star because it is just so, so expensive. **REMEMBER to SHAKE the bottle before every use and AVOID getting too close to your eyes!

5 Things I Wish I Knew When I First Started Using Liquid Liner. Over the past year, I've become a liquid eyeliner loyalist. Save for instances when I need to test out new products, I've never let a pencil or cream liner touch my oily eyelids. In my experience, liquid liners are generally more long-lasting than pencil or creams, and I've grown to love the statement-making look they yield. Plus, the built-in brush, whether it comes in the twist-off cap or in pen form, is super-handy, especially since I don't wash my brushes as often as I'd like.

Getting to love liquid eyeliner, however, wasn't an easy process. Since it's long-lasting, it can be difficult to remove, and since it's liquid, you have to be careful about smudging. Combine those two things, and a cat eye just seems 100 time mores intimidating. I'm proud to say I've reached a place in my beauty game where liquid liner doesn't instill as much fear in me as it used to.

Choose your tools and formula wisely. I find that marker-type liners are the easiest to use. Line with your eyes open. Highlighter Sticks: Stick ‘Em Where Your Cheeks Don’t Shine. Has there ever been a single makeup product that's gotten the meme-treatment more than highlighter? Sure, it piggybacks off of the ubiquitous-to-the-point-of-annoyance contouring, but kind of like how Kim Kardashian used to be Paris Hilton's assistant and is now leagues more famous past the point of oversaturation, highlighters have quite literally stolen the spotlight.

(This analogy is a bit ironic because the Kardashians like "invented" contouring). Anyway, highlighter. People feel very strongly about highlighter. I feel pretty strongly about highlighter. It's the one thing that would be my "desert island" product (second to sunscreen, though it's possible I could refract UV rays with enough highlighter, maybe?).

If I'm doing "no-makeup today," I'll likely reach for highlighter once I reach the point of "OK, maybe just one little makeup... " Behold — some of my favorites!
