You Need To Start Oil Cleansing Your Makeup Brushes – Here’s Why

Hi everyone!

I’ve spoken about the wonders of oil cleansing before, but for anyone who needs a refresher, it’s pretty simple: instead of just washing your face at night, you should use an oil cleanser first. Oil breaks up oil, and adding an oil cleanser to your routine will better wipe off creamy and oil-based makeup like your foundation or concealer. Also, those with oily skin benefit from using an oil cleanser because the oil in the cleanser attracts the oil on your face.

The Best & Worst Dressed of the 2017 Met Gala

Happy (post) Met Gala Day! Known to fashion lovers as the Superbowl of Fashion, the Met Gala often brings out the best of style. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” If you’re not familiar with Rei’s work, this architectural designs, unconventional silhouettes, and a lot of volume. So basically, an avant-garde look was required of the guests.

A Sweaty Girls Guide To Summer

It seems like summer weather has arrived with absolutely no warning at all. And while I’m loving the sunshine, I’m already dreading when the temps are going to hit the 80s and 90s (and even 100s on some days). Unfortunately, I’ve been blessed cursed with overactive sweat glands, and even the slightest rise in temperature leaves me a sweaty mess. However, I plan to be prepared this year, and these are the products that I will have in my sweaty girl arsenal.

Things to do On Valentine’s Day (Besides Dinner)

Valentine’s Day is next week, and even though I am very single, I am looking upon that day with no sense of dread or sadness. Technically, V-Day is a celebration of love. Any kind of love. From romantic love to platonic love to parental love to the love of your pet cat. There’s no reason to feel like you can’t celebrate if you’re not in a relationship. Romantic dinners are usually the status quo for February 14th, but if you’re looking for something else to do on that day, I have some ideas for you. You can do these activities by yourself, with friends, or whoever you want to spend time with.

I chalked this up to the fact that while the homemade yogurt-honey-olive oil conditioner I had been using was great for treating and conditioning my hair, my locks still needed a deep-clean every once in a while.

7 Things You Should Know Before You Become a Writer

I never really knew that I wanted to become a writer. It kind of snuck up on me. I’ve always loved books and reading, and I would imagine what I would do differently, which characters I would create. After I graduated, I kept trying to submit some of my writing to online publications, but I was too lazy to complete the assignment (I suck) or I was too scared to try. When this opportunity with Delish came about, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but I’m know realizing that it’s what I needed to move my career in the right direction. I am not some accomplished author trying to give advice to the *little people*, I’m just a young writer who wants to share what she’s learned in her short but interesting journey. Whether you write op-ed pieces, novels, or beauty articles, I think there’s a little bit of something in this list for everyone.
