Are People Really Buying Mini Fridges For Their Skincare?

@bufferingbetty

Trust us. You’ll want one, too.

We are the generation that has everything so we make anything as extra as can be. That does, in fact, include our obsession with skincare. It’s not so much a fear of aging as it is a need to curate the perfect self care evening; first: a glass of wine topped off with a sheet mask; second: scheduling an appointment with our therapists. How else are we supposed to wind down after a yet another day of the government shutdown? Enter our latest indulgent distraction: a mini fridge -yes, for our cosmetics!

Could we technically put our eye creams in the regular size refrigerator in the kitchen? Sure!

But think about all the things that are sitting in your fridge right now. I don’t know -I just don’t feel right about having my favorite eye cream sitting next to a jar of my grandmother’s sofrito. Both are precious but they have no business being in contact with each other.

Plus, think of all the things that have gotten pushed to the back of your fridge only to be found three weeks past its expiration date.

I mean, thank god for packaging and pictures, otherwise you’d have no idea how to identify what is, apparently, pico de gallo. What if that happened to your 24K gold eye gels -lost in the abyss of your fridge because it was hidden behind that weird smoothie you bought and never threw away for you hoped a friend would come over and take it off your hands. It would be tragic.

When I apply my skincare, all I want to focus on is the joy of hydrating my dry skin. Not stress over wondering when was the last time I cleaned out my fridge and if what is in that bowl supposed to be that color.

Yes! There are real skin care benefits to keeping certain beauty products in the fridge. Especially eye cream!

In a perfect world, you’d clear off a shelf in your regular size refrigerator to make a proper place for your moisturizers and aloe gel.

But this is reality and it’s only a matter of time before your roommates or your Mama thinks your Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is actually a sandwich spread -sticks a butter knife in it and gets bread crumbs in the jar. Boom! $45 goes down on account of turkey on rye.

So, yeah, we’re getting mini fridges.
And we’re putting them in our little beauty oasis just to feel like we got it like that. So check these out if you’re ready to treat your undereye to the uplifting feeling of cooled eye cream.

Looks like a breadbox but all you’ll find is some moisturizers and maybe some perfume

What I love most is that this little baby sunshine looks like a throwback refrigerator. It’s the cutest damn thing sitting on my vanity, which is actually a presidental style desk that I bought on Craigslist when I graduated college.

My mini is stocked with my moisturizers, sunblock, overnight cream, primer, setting sprays, a scalp treatment, and, of course, some sheet masks!

The first time I applied my skincare after it had been cooled, I was hooked. It’s so satisfying, so cooling! The only thing I need now is some eye gels!

It’s a lifestyle.

Puff, Puff, Mask: Cannabis is a Rising Beauty Trend

Danyelle Valentin // @bufferingbetty

For chronic good skincare *winky face*

We all know the ‘party’ properties of cannabis, even if not from experience. However, many of us, including myself, are or were ignorant of the beauty benefits of it! Cannabis beauty solutions are far from new but they certainly are on trend. Kush Mascara from Milk Makeup and Sephora carrying High Beauty, it looks like CBD should have been on my vanity and in my skincare cabinet ages ago! In addition to improving the skin, having the beauty world have such an emphasis on the healing benefits of marijuana speaks to the social, in my opinion, progression of society. I’m not saying a face cream is going to cause Congress to legalize cannabis, but maybe it will de-stigmatize people and cultures that embrace it.

Homage to the chillest pass time

We be burning not concernin’ while we blending our eye shadow. For me, I noticed the trend really kick off with the launch of this palette. I thought it was funny, socially relevant, and stunning!!! I also LOVE green eye makeup! While this gorgeous palette is not formulated with any cannabis, it is truly a tribute to plant.

The Trend Intensifies

Mascara is that one beauty step that, according to me, 9 out of 10 makeup wearers wouldn’t skip. Milk Makeup comes across as the brand that caters to that cool kid, aloof type so adding in a product that hypes up le ganj’ makes perfect sense from a branding POV. But! Their whole base line for infusing this mascara with cannabis would make you pick up a tube.


According to Milk, “Conditioning hemp-derived cannabis oil fuses heart-shaped fibers to lashes for thickness without the fallout. The hydrating formula also fills the hollow fibers for a double dose of volume.” They also used it as a binding tool in order to make the product totally vegan by not using beeswax.

7 Concealers That Prove 2019 is the Year of Hidden Eye Bags

Danyelle Valentin // @bufferingbetty

BRB, off perfecting that under-eye triangle.

If 2017 was the year of color corrector, and 2018 was the year of blush, I’m left wondering what 2019 will be crowned the year of. My prediction is concealer! Since Tarte’s concealer, Shape Tape, lined beauty counters and brightened the under eye hallows of beauty lovers across the land, competing brands have been trying their best to topple the top-selling, top-rated, cherry-on-top concealer. Even Tarte! After Shape Tape, an Ulta exclusive, was a major success, Tarte released their Creaseless Concealer. It wasn’t a smash hit like Shape Tape. Nothing has been. But a new year means new beauty launches. Some of the most highly anticipated launches are concealers. Here are a few that will have you clicking ‘add to cart.’

1. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer

The Big Claim: Self setting! What? How? Is it wizardry? Either way, it’s already chilling in my cart waiting for my income tax check to clear.

2. Milani Conceal + Perfect Longwear Concealer

3. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer

The Fenty Effect: From its takeover of the beauty industry, Fenty Beauty set a new standard of true inclusion by debuting with 40 shades of foundation. They went even further with their concealer launch: 50 shades. Bonus: 8 setting powders accompany the range!

Launch date: Jan. 11th!

4. L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer

Beauty Horoscope: Scorpio 2018

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 22)

Scorpio, it is unlike you to hold back your thoughts on any matter. If you have found that lately you seem stuck and tied up in your own words, take a new approach. It’s your straightforward nature that makes you stand out. It’s time to be bolder. While a clean line of a cut crease may be a popular look, it doesn’t make the cut for a Scorpio. A messy inner corner adorned with glitter will make you rise again. It’s unruly. Water signs will not be controlled. Be unafraid to strike.

Beauty Horoscope: Libra 2018

Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 23) 

Libra, your plight with pleasing those around you often leaves you feeling like you’re not doing enough for yourself. Supporting friends and family cannot come in place of caring for yourself. Of course, some personal sacrifice proves your devotion. But the real balance a Libra needs to master is finding the fine line between sacrifice and personal neglect. How can you save others from drowning if you haven’t learned to swim? Find your voice and use it for yourself for a change because the scale has been tipping in one direction for too long. Sporting a big smile with blue lipstick will pair perfectly with your new attitude.

This No Frizz Hair Care Line is your First Defense Against Humidity

Danyelle Valentin // @bufferingbetty

When your love for big hair turns ironic.

bad frizz.jpg

 With frizzy hair, even the slightest presence of moisture in the air ruins your low slick back ponytail into a swirly mess.

giphy.gif

 

Don’t doubt for a minute that I don’t love every inch of my hair. I can manipulate it into anything. There are certainly cute frizzy hair days.

good frizz.jpg

 

But THIS is not one of them so these are the days that we need to embrace the power good hair care.

worst frizz.jpg

The first step for managing frizzy hair is identifying why your hair swells 3x it’s actual size in the first place. Frizzy hair means that your hair is on the dryer side; regardless of your hair type. For me, it’s, 1, I was born this way, and 2, using hot tools in my hair. Using heated styling tools to smooth my frizz just creates more of what I’m trying to, not eliminate, but keep well below Hagrid levels. I also shower with hot water. I know it’s bad for my dry skin and hair but I can’t help it!!!!

So, if you were born this way, the first thing you need to do is ACCEPT and EMBRACE your frizzy hair. Almost nothing can correct nature. There are dozens of ways to style your hair where frizz adds an exciting element of beauty. We see it on the runway all the time!

Note: I wouldn’t be mad if my hair looked like that every day. And I do mean that big too!

I also need to accept that I am damaging my hair with heat and products that dry it out -only making it frizzier. What are your habits that effect your hair?

Related: Rotating Curling Iron Review

Frizzy hair be like 0 to GODDAMN in 5 seconds. You’ll think you’re going to have a great natural hair day and POOF. Your hair had other plans but you were already in your car on your way to happy hour and now you have to enlist ‘the bun’ to save you. -Just me?

To keep your hair fierce rather ferocious, prepping your hair starts in the shower. The Living Proof No Frizz shampoo and conditioner left me blown away the first time I used it. It has continued to impress me every time I wash my hair. I’m on my third set!!! Do you remember how nice you’re hair felt before your discovered hot tools and styling products? Or do you feel slightly jealous of your baby cousins’ hairs because they just look so healthy and untainted by the pressures of adulthood? Yeah. that's how good my hair feels and looks with this combo.

PGPA6214.JPG

Most ‘no frizz’ hair care lines I’ve tried leave my hair weighed down. I. Hate. Flat. Hair. The Living Proof combo is everything. My hair looks and feels so healthy. My wavy hair texture is at peak waviness when I let it air dry -even with no added product. Are you paying attention! NO ADDED PRODUCT! I get compliments on my hair when I use this shampoo and conditioner.

Add it to your cart, your wishlists, your mood boards now! -

On second and third (+ so on) day hair, I use the Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream. It brings down the frizz to a socially acceptable level. I keep mini ones with me at all times! One in my purse and one chills in the cup-holder of the front seat of my car. It doesn’t act as a smoothing oil which works to eliminate all signs of frizz. Like I said, I love my frizzy hair. I just like to not walk around looking like I haven’t brushed my hair in 3 months. The styling cream gives more definition to my waves without making my hair heavy.

This next product is not part of the Living Proof line BUT it is a ‘holy grail’ level product for keeping my hair in shape. The Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre Shampoo Masque -ya need it. Just to keep it simple; you need it. Damage in my hair always shows on the ends. This masque makes my hair look like I just got it cut. It’s boujee salon level excellent that you can do at home. I would just avoid using it directly before styling your hair because it is so rich that your hair will just fall flat.

For the days when the frizz factor will not be controlled. always keep some sort shield with you. It could be a hat, headband or scarf. For me it’s at least 4 bobby pins to create a secure bun and a hair tie for when I can’t be bothered. Frizz happens fast. Don’t let them catch you slippin’!

giphy.gif


From the moment I emerged into this life, I have had frizzy hair. As a child, my mom saturated my sisters’ and my hair with Infusium leave in conditioner. In middle school, to control the frizz, I coated my hair in Pantene Pro V mousse or any brand gel -I had one that tinted my hair blue and made it as hard as plastic. I’d pull my hair into a high side ponytail with a scrunchie! In high school, I discovered the blow dryer but only used it the night before school to “let the frizz settle overnight” -I still do this sometimes.

I fully embrace my hair! I often try something new: blonde, blue, purple, bob, bangs, braids. and all of the things!

If all else fails, live in your Diana Ross- big hair, don’t care-moments!

Beauty Horoscope: Virgo 2018

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Virgo, it is fitting that your season begins just as the back-to-school vibes set in. August ends as you prep + organize to meet your goals. Even if you’re no longer a formal student, you still love the ‘fresh start’ September gives. A Virgo is a life long pupil. Because of your ability to create a master plan full of detailed steps that will lead you to achieve all that you discipline yourself to have, there isn’t much that can stop a Virgo. Except for your obsession with perfection. Don’t get so trap by perfecting the small steps that you push away the goal. It is a distracting defense mechanism and you know it. Mod make up the 60s brought all of the attention to the eyes; widening them by drawing attention to dramatized creases and a dropped lower lash line or painted on lower lashes. Think Twiggy’s doe-eyed gaze that was also sultry. Embrace your creativity, open your eyes, and don’t forget where your journey is going to lead you. Never forget that you have vision.

We are officially halfway through Summer and the real heat has yet to hIt New York City. I’ve recently had to make some beauty/lifestyle changes to adjust to these dog days of summer. 

MAKE PLAY

We all know I’ve been barefaced most of the summer, slathering nothing but SPF on my face. Just because I’ve been minimal doesn’t mean I’m boring. I do like to play. What I live for is a good base. Lately Fenty Pro Filt’r Foundation has been supreme. just a few dots here and there and blended well. I even use foundations as a tinted moisturizer. The shade 240 just matches my skin perfectly and that is rare. I just want to enhance my natural glow honey. Once you find the perfect base everything else falls into place. For eyes , the Natasha Denona “Camel” palette is an everyday dream, no one’s shadow formula can compete with hers. For fun colors and shimmers I do live for Colourpop, I’m like an OG fan since the days of “Bae” and “Rex”. I’m not really wild with bold color yet I still like to play around with it. With Colourpop I’m not spending major coin but the quality of product is superb!
