As the New Year approaches, so do a slew of “get healthy” resolutions—but did you know that gym time and portion control can be a waste if your mental health isn’t in check? According to a recent study, neglecting your mental health is why an estimated 95% of diets seem to fail. So the next time you think about gearing up for a juice cleanse or hiring a personal trainer, make sure you’re de-stressed and feeling your best for optimal results. [Huffington Post]
Liquid blush is one of the best ways to achieve a natural, rosy glow all year long, but your lack of speed could be the reason you sometimes look streaky and zebra-like instead of lit from within. Immediately after applying two dots to your cheek, quickly blend the blush upward and out. Don't pause between steps. Why? Your liquid blush—Chantecaille Cheek Gelée Happy Hydrating Gel-Cream Blush ($39) is one of our favorites!—will dry before you can blend it in, creating the dreaded streaking effect you want to avoid.
