It’s that special time: the second week of January, and the first full week after the holidays. How are those New Year’s resolutions going for ya? I know its been a pretty long week for me.
At least the beauty world was busy. A Korean sheet mask subscription service, Michelle O’s best beauty and fashion moments, a great essay by Bobbi Brown, beauty brands that will be big news in 2017, and an 80s revival, in this week’s Fabulous Links!
Sheet mask junkies will love FaceTory, a new beauty subscription service. For only $5 a month and $1 shipping, you get four sheet masks picked for you by the FaceTory team. You’re all set for #skincaresunday each month! (Allure)
As we prepare to say good bye to FLOTUS, the New York Times, Glamour, and Allure have curated roundups of her best beauty and fashion looks. No one made a statement with fashion, wore color, or mixed prints quite like Michelle. We’ll miss you, Mrs. O! (New York Times) (Glamour) (Allure)
Bobbi Brown wrote a moving open letter for Refinery29. She looked back on building her company, and reiterated her powerful message of using makeup to be your best you. Bobbi may be leaving her company, but she’s not going anywhere. (Refinery29)
Here are the beauty start-ups to watch this year, according to Fast Company. And yes, Memebox and Glossier made the list. (Fast Company)
If you remember mall bangs, AquaNet, and scrunchies, beware: 80s beauty is apparently poised to make a comeback in 2017. Gnarly! (Allure)
This week on the blog, I reviewed Babe Scrub coffee body scrub and SimySkin Nourishing Eye Cream.
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
