Wonder No More

How Often Should I Wash My Hair?

The jury is still out on this one. For some (like people who work out 7 days a week or those who have oily scalps), shampooing daily is a must, while others can go a week without washing. As always, there are alternatives. Reach for a dry shampoo when you need a quick refresher but don't want to indulge in a major suds session.

How To Clean Makeup Brushes?

A weekly deep clean removes oils, dead skin cells, old makeup, dust and harmful bacteria that gets trapped between bristles. Work a few drops of antibacterial dish soap, baby shampoo or clarifying shampoo into a wet brush and rinse with lukewarm water. Get all the dirty details here.

How To Get Rid Of Bags Under Your Eyes?

We hate to break it to you but under-eye bags are not completely curable. To reduce swelling, chilled cucumbers are a natural remedy because they contain anti-inflammatory ingredients including vitamin C and caffeine, both of which help reduce swelling. Also eye masks are infused with ingredients that specifically target dark, puffy circles. Throw them in the fridge for an extra-soothing experience.

How To Minimize Pores?

The cardinal rule of wearing makeup is to always, always wear primer. Find one that focuses specifically on large pores because it makes skin tone even while lengthening the wear time of your makeup.

How To Apply Foundation?

If you have oily skin: Get an airbrushed look by using a stippling brush to apply liquid foundation onto your entire face before blending in a circular motion.

For Dry Skin: Use the bristles of a flat foundation brush to apply liquid formulas onto the face and blend by pressing the sides onto the skin.

For Acne-Prone Skin: A moist blending sponge is game-changing. Use it to press a liquid foundation into your skin and blend in a patting motion.
