2019 COLOR OF THE YEAR // LIVING CORAL

This years Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral- described as a 

coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.

I love this color in terms of beauty products because it is universally flattering, and easy to wear. It is also a favorite color for many women already, so I am excited to see it take center stage in 2019. [

NYX Duo Chrome Lip Gloss, Stila Glitter & Glow, CAI Hair Glitter, imPress Press on Nails

This time of year we've got lots of excuses to dress up and add a little more sparkle into our beauty routine, here are a few of my favorite ways to add glitter and sparkle into your beauty looks: [

] I suggest you just pick one area to focus on... no need to look like a disco ball!

Makeup

Hair

  • Cai All That Glitters My fav for adding some MAJOR glitter to your locks. Start with a simple hairstyle like a sleek low pony, then swipe a small dusting of glitter near the elastic.

Nails

  • imPress Press on Nails Easy nails with a peel and stick application. I swear by them for an instant manicure that lasts about a week, plus the Holiday collection is always sparkling and so festive.

Happy [sparkly] Holidays! xo

LUSH LASHES WITHOUT EXTENSIONS

This time of year- we've got more excuses to get a little dazzled up! And lush lashes really make any look really pop! But if you're like me, lash extensions are a little more maintenance than you may want to take on. So instead I am sharing a few ways to enhance those lashes in other ways... [

HONEY LOVE // BUZZWORTHY BEAUTY PRODUCTS

bee venom mask, honey makeup primer, honey shampoo and conditioner, honey beauty products

Honey is an ingredient we know in love- but often don't associate it with beauty care products. If you start to pay attention though, you'll notice just how many beauty products out there contain honey as a key ingredient... What's to love about honey?

It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory making it great in skincare products. It's hydrating and repairing- perfect for hair care. And it's soothing and nourishing as a body care ingredient!

Here are six of my favs to keep an eye out for: [

IS DRY SHAMPOO BAD FOR YOUR SCALP?

We've come to use and rely on

Dry Shampoos

to extend the life of our hairstyles and help us skip a wash or two during the week- but it's important to spend a little extra time on the days we DO wash, to ensure that our scalp health remains in tact. Otherwise our scalps can begin to have issues with bacteria growth, clogged hair follicles or even (in RARE cases) hair loss.

Be smart and use common sense with your Dry Shampoos, and you'll be fine! If your scalp has become dry, flaky or irritated- then you may need to lay off the Dry Shampoo and only use it once a week. If you notice bumps in the scalp, like acne, you've got clogged follicles that need a breather until they heal. And if there's any sort of smell coming from the scalp, things have progressed to an unsafe level where bacteria could be growing. [

]

Here are some

basic Dry Shampoo tips:

1-

Limit use of Dry Shampoo to 2 days in a row

followed by a thorough double washing on day 3.

2-

Only use on dry hair!

Once moisture from sweat or humidity is involved bacteria will begin to form and a traditional shampoo is needed to cleanse the scalp.

3-

Spray Dry Shampoo on the underside of the HAIR itself

, not aimed directly at the scalp/skin.

Once every other week or so, it's a great idea to spend a little extra time on your scalp. Thoroughly loosening and cleansing the scalp ensures your skin and follicles are getting proper blood circulation and your hair will look and feel better as a result.

How many days in a row are your reaching for Dry Shampoo? Does this make you think twice?

THE PERM IS BACK?!

PERM- it's a four letter word... literally of course, but also figuratively as well.

Why is that? Well, in my opinion, perms are associated with bad memories. Women remember them from their pasts, and the subsequent frizzy hairstyles that followed in our younger years. And hairstylists are somewhat afraid of the perm- because it's a service that we can't fully control the results of. We never want you to leave unhappy, and that fear of the unknown and the possible disappointment- makes many stylists avoid the perm all together.

The perm is not going to become mainstream again, but it is going to be seen and heard more often in salons. We've already seen a few celebs jump on the bandwagon and share their results online. So today on Studio5 we took a trip to the salon with a brave volunteer and delved into the return of the perm, take a look! [

DE-PUFF YOUR FACE WITH THESE COOL MASSAGE TOOLS

Do you ever wake up and think to your self, 'wow, I look like a got punched in the face during my sleep last night!' ??? Ya, me too... its part of life- especially on the mornings after eating or drinking poorly the night before.

Waking up puffy is simply normal [and totally frustrating] but as the day wears on typically the puffiness subsides as the fluids underneath our skin begin to drain. But what if I told you that you can help the fluid systems under your skin (the Lymphatic system) to drain more readily and avoid the puffiness all together!?

Enter:

Facial Massage

Not only is it relaxing, it is super beneficial for the look and tone of the skin. Massage helps to encourage collagen production, helps to tighten the skin, helps to strengthen the muscles of the face, and most importantly drain the lymphatic fluids found just under the surface of the skin. [

video here

]

There are three main types of tools used in facial massage [outside of your hands, which work well- but just be sure they are super clean!] the Roller, the Vibrating Bar, and the Sonic Massager. There are several brands out there that make these devices- but here are a look at the three I use and love.

Just like with any exercise, results won't happen with just once-in-a-while use. I reccomend adding the massage into your nightly routine after cleansing. Spend a full two minutes on the massage- working in upward strokes, and you'll see major improvement within the first few nights. Use the massage tool of your choice with a serum or an oil for added benefits and relaxation too.

BEAUTY FOR TEENS

I get asked a LOT for

beauty recommendations when it comes to teens

, and what products are best for their needs. It's tricky because they've outgrown their kid shampoos, but don't necessarily need super high end products yet either. This list will get you started in every category of beauty, and the whole thing adds up to just about $80, so it won't cost you an arm and a leg- but you'll get great quality and results.

NEW BEAUTY INNOVATIONS THAT WOW

Pureology Vinegar Rinse, dpHue Cool Brunette Shampoo, Bumble&bumble Scalp Detox, Becca Hydramist Powder, Bum Bum Cream, Shake & Shot Mask

Every time Spring rolls around, it seems that beauty companies really pull out the big guns and release their BIGGEST innovations of the year. It takes a lot for me to stop and say WOW when I am wandering the isles of Sephora or Ulta, so you know this stuff is good! Here are six beauty innovations that will rock your world! [

video here

]

  • DpHue Cool Brunette Shampoo Counter act unwanted brassy and red tones with a cool blue shampoo designed specifically for brunettes. Shampoo and leave on for a few minutes to let the blue tone go to work on your hair and keep the cool hue.

  • Pureology Vinegar Hair Rinse This vinegar rinse is designed specifically for the correct pH of your hair, and will thoroughly clean the hair and scalp, as well as leave your hair shiny and fresh.

  • Bumble&bumble Scalp Detox This icy blast foam is tingly and refreshing on the scalp, plus it will detox the oil and buildup off the scalp for fresher more voluminous locks.

  • Becca Hydramist Set & Refresh Powder A powder made up of 50% water?! Yep, and it's awesome- it doesn't leave your skin looking chalky or cakey, just refreshes and mattifies with a lightweight finish. It feels cool to the touch and feels wet when you apply it, it's trippy- but so innovative.

  • Dr. Jart Shake & Shot Rubber Mask These Korean rubber masks are super fun to apply and take off, but they also leave skin GLOWING! The two part formula mixes together to form a rubbery gel, that you slather all over the face. It firms up and then peels off to reveal hydrating and firm skin underneath. Plus it's super fun.

  • Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Time for skin season and this cream will tighten and leave you glowing in those little shorts. It has 5 times the caffeine of most firming creams and mica to give your skin a reflective glow. You and your Bum Bum will love it!

BLONDER LONGER + A BLONDE GIVEAWAY

best hair products for blondes, purple shampoo, Kevin Murphy Blonde Angel, Clarifying Shampoo

Utah gals are no strangers to the color BLONDE! We have the highest rate of blondes per capita only second to Texas. So this is a topic I am very familiar with! Today I am sharing a few

ways to keep your blonde locks looking fresh, bright and non brassy

. Weather you are a natural blonde, or you get a little help from your stylist. [video

here

] Plus I am giving away a whole set of these goodies over on

instagram

, enter now through 4/15.

For NATURAL BLONDES and GREY HAIR:

Hard water and product buildup will cause blonde hair to appear darker, more orange in tone and will also put a film on the hair that keeps it from feeling fully clean. A detox shampoo once a week will break down the residues and keep blondes looking their brightest.

For ARTIFICAL BLONDES and SILVER:

Keep blonde tones cooler and less yellowy with the addition of a Purple toned shampoo and/or conditioning treatment. These can be used multiple times per week to maintain the cooler tone. Look for options that are deep in color, they will have the most impact.

Shampoo once with traditional shampoo to remove products and oils in the hair, followed by a second shampoo using the purple product and all the shampoo to sit on the hair for 2-3 minutes before rinsing with COOL water. For even more impact follow up with a purple conditioner and again rinse with COOL water. 

To keep ROOTS BLENDED in between colors:

Opt for a Root Touchup Powder to keep roots camouflaged in between color services. These powders bind to the hairs and stay in place until your next wash. Apply to your part line and around the hairline to blur the line and soften the regrowth appearance. 

Here is to bright shiny blondes! xo

MAKE YOUR MORNING ROUTINE FASTER

Everyone needs a little more time in their lives- but we all only have 24 hours in a day.

Make the most of your morning routine by becoming more efficient

with your products and time management. I put together 3 of my fav time saving products and 3 of my time saving tips! [Video

Here

]

Time Saving Beauty Products:

  • Pixi Multi Balm Dab the same color on cheeks and lips for a quick pop of color and moisture in a single product.

  • Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo Soak up oil and give more volume to the hair with a dry shampoo, BUT be sure to apply it at night before bed for maximum results when you skip the shower in the morning.

  • Power Dry Me A Blow Dry Accelerator that repels moisture out of the hair so that your blow dry time is reduced by up to 40%.

Time Saving Beauty Tips:

Keep your morning creams in the kitchen and or fridge

, and apply them while your prepping or eating breakfast. The coolness of an eye cream fresh from the fridge will de-puff bags under your eyes, and applying them while waiting for your toast to pop will save you time later when applying makeup, you will also have better results when you allow your creams to set into the skin longer prior to applying makeup.

Declutter your makeup stash and keep only your 'use everyday products' in front of you- and keep your 'extras' stored away. The rule is:

'If I don't use this product at least 3 times per week, it doesn't belong in my makeup bag.'

This will cut down on time digging through your makeup bag passed all the clutter. Opt for stackable baskets and divide into categories for quick reference and easy locating. 

Dial in on the order in which you apply your products

- and then stick to the list for speed! You can even print out a cheat sheet and tape it to your mirror to help you until you memorize the order. Knowing what to reach for and exactly where it is will speed up your routine more than anything else. Make it a game and set a timer too, nothing kicks you in to gear like a ticking clock!

Beauty Cheat Sheet: (Print it out and tape it to your mirror until you've got it memorized)

NEXT GENERATION OF MAKEUP APPLICATORS

Beauty Blender, Artis Brush Dupe, Silicone Sponge, Silisponge, Ulta Super Blender

Move over makeup brushes, it's time for a new generation of makeup applicators to find their way into your hearts! Today I am sharing 3 new categories of makeup applicators that you may have not heard of just yet. They are designed to make your routine more seamless, and use technological advances to up your makeup game! [

Video Here

]

Silicone Blenders

Silicone Sponges made it BIG in 2017 and have changed the way we apply liquid foundation to the face. They absorb ZERO amount of your product and are very easy to clean and keep sanitary. Best for those who use liquid foundation and want full coverage.

Paddle Brushes

The unique shape and handle (similar look to a large toothbrush) gives these brushes a leg up on blending and blurring your products. They contain a much larger number of bristles in each brush, meaning you can distribute your products more quickly. They work with liquids, cream, and powders for a seamless blend. 

Bouncy Sponges

The shapes and sizes are ever changing with these sponges, that have a bouncy suede like texture designed to bounce across the face to press products into the skin for a flawless finish. The sponges are used damp which will slightly thin out the product you're applying giving a more natural medium coverage. The unique shapes are designed to fit the contours of your face, and can be used with liquids, creams and powders.

Have you tried any of these fun tools? xo

CAPRICORN INSPIRED // BOLD AND BRIGHT

This year I thought it would be fun to explore beauty looks

inspired by the Star Signs

. I know that you'll only fall into one category yourself, but I hope you'll find inspiration in the characteristics of the other signs as well, and hopefully try some new looks.

The first sign if the year is

CAPRICORN

, and this look is inspired by her. She is determined, bold and perhaps a workaholic. So

this makeup tutorial is bright, clean, and a little edgy

. Enjoy! [

WILL YOU BE WEARING THE COLOR OF THE YEAR? // ULTRA VIOLET BEAUTY

Ultra Violet has been named the Color of the Year by Pantone

- the universal authority on color... And I for one, am super pumped about the announcement. Purple is just my favorite color in general, but I've always LOVED to wear purple on my eyes as well. In my opinion it is the only color on the spectrum that is universally flattering on every skin tone. EVERY SKIN TONE!!

Not only does Ultra Violet make your eyes pop, it also wears beautifully on lips! Here is a look at the trend and a few great budget friendly options to get you started. [

BRANDS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT... BUT SHOULD!

We all know the BIG names in makeup- brands like Loreal, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown. But there is SO MUCH MORE out there, in terms of small independent brands that aren't as well known- but are simply amazing and I want you to hear about them. 

Today, I am rounding up 5 of my top hidden gems- and sharing one product that I think you should try from each line. Ready? Let's go! [video

here

]

Colour Pop

 To be fair I have mentioned Colour Pop many times on the blog in years past, so you may already know about it. But the brand has recently launched at Sephora, which means it's now going to be a household name for anybody who shops for makeup. 

  • Ultra Blotted Lip, is my favorite formula in the line. It is the perfect lipstick for the woman who doesn't wear lipstick, but wants to. Confused? Well, here's the deal: It's sheer but matte, two things that don't usually go together. You can get a great pop of color that lasts longer than a gloss, but it still shows the texture of your lips through the color. Amazing for a more subtle look than your typical Liquid Lipstick. Which Colour Pop also makes, and those are great too!

Karity

 This indie line is more compact and produces in smaller batches, so the quality always remains

consistently

 high. There's no middle man here either, they only sell direct from their own site- meaning the prices are low. Can I get an 'Amen'!?

  • The Shadow Palettes are stunning, with blendable pigments that POP off the eye. The Peach Palette is a dream, but the Nudes & Rudes palette cannot lead you astray.

Huda Beauty

 Huda is no stranger to the beauty world- her Youtube channel has over 2 million subscribers! But the average consumer may have never heard of her and her cosmetics line, that is now available at Sephora. Her shadows are stunning, and her Lip Strobes make any pout just a touch more

glamorous

, but my favorite are her Holographic Lip Toppers.

  • The Mini Lip Strobe Collection is a great way to jump into the holographic makeup trend. You get 4 minis that can be worn alone or over the top of a lipstick. The light reflection is like 'BAM'! and I even love using them right in the center of my lips for a little extra plump.

Models Own

 is a UK drugstore staple, but the US is finally getting in on the action. It's a HUGE line with over 600 products (we don't have them all here- bummer) and they are a great budget option for makeup lovers. 

  • Sculpt & Glow Highlight Palette gives you three BIG pans of color in each compact. The pink version is my favorite and gives you a blush and highlighter in a single step. I love that there are powder and cream formulas in the same compact too, so you can adjust depending on the look you want.

Soap & Glory

 is another UK transplant, and is mostly well known for their lotions and body scrubs. But their makeup line is fantastic as well, and the collection comes complete with super catchy packaging and names. Don't be offended... it's funny people!

  • One Heck of a Blot Foundation is a super unique formula, that starts off as a liquid and dries down to a velvet powder finish. That powder goes to work absorbing excess oil throughout the day, helping to combat the shine and need for blotting. Love this stuff- only downside is the lack of shade variety.

Happy Shopping! xo

THE RETURN OF PRESS ON NAILS!?

These are not your grandmas press-on nails folks! In fact press ons are making a big comeback, and you might be surprised to find out celebrities like JLo are wearing press ons for an instant touch a glam and boasting about it on

social media

If you haven't thought about or worn press-ons in a long time, you'll be happy to know that the technology has improved and the results are more life-like than ever. These types of nails are made with a gel finish, so they are shiny and super durable. 

You can also apply them for a temporary pop of pizzaz, and here's how:

 [

video

]

Favorites:

Kiss Gel Fantasy

 (glue) Great for an event or photos. 2-3 days, but pop off more easily with the glue.

imPRESS One-Step Gel

 (peel and stick) My FAVS! They last 7-10 days and are so easy to apply!

Tips for an easy application:

  1. Start by using your 'awkward' hand to apply nails to your dominate hand. It's much easier to apply with your awkward hand, BEFORE they have nails on.

  2. Find your proper size nail- it should lay flush with the curve of your nail bed, without having to be pressed down. You may need to size up, and then file the sides more narrow to get the right fit. Tip: Write down you sizes so you can quickly grab the right ones next time

  3. Prep the natural nails by washing your hands, and using a quick swipe of polish remover to remove any oil or residue before applying

  4. Apply glue to both the natural nail and the press-on, but only allow to dry for a few seconds before bonding together. Or if using the peel and stick, simply remove the backing and press and hold.

  5. Place the nail on at the cuticle first (avoid touching the skin) then rock the nail forward. Press firmly to remove air bubbles and hold for 10 seconds for a solid bond.

It is common for 1-2 nails to pop off in the first day or so... these will be the nails that didn't get a proper bond the first time around. Simply reapply glue and bond again. Once the nails have made it passed this phase, they've proven they are secure and will last about a week before the natural oils in your nails loosen the bond. At this point the nails will need to be removed and any remaining glue can be soaked off quickly with some acetone based polish remover.

Press ons are super fun for a quick change or a temporary look. Ideal for a big event or even somthing like family pictures. I hope you'll give them a go! xo

THE LAST BEAUTY OIL YOU'LL EVER NEED? // MARULA OIL

What is Marula Oil?

What is Marula Oil?

Marula Oil is the oil harvested from the nut of the Marula tree that is found in Africa. Indigenous women have been using it as a skin and hair product for hundreds of years, and its now making it's way into American beauty products along side more commonly known oils like, Coconut and Argan. 

Marula Oil has traditionally been on the more expensive side, but we are starting to see versions in drugstore products as well. (Like this new line from

It's light in texture, super fast-absorbing, packed with nutrients and fatty acids, it's and super hydrating. Here are my HIGHLY

recommended
