By now you’ve definitely heard of eyebrow lamination where an esthetician applies a semi-permanent solution to your brows to straighten them and give them more texture. It’s become so popular that DIY lamination videos top Tiktok and Instagram as some of the most watched tutorials.

She cried, recounted memories, and claimed she'd been prepared for it as my Grandma's health had been rapidly declining.
I'm not a makeup artist but I really love doing my makeup now that I know how to play up (and down) certain features that make me look my absolute best. The Kardashians made contouring famous, but the internet made contouring EASY! Here are my favorite ways to contour, including my best advice on what products to use and how to artistically blend everything together (this is actually a very KEY part of it).
Here’s my quick gift guide for progressive lovers on VDAY. While I always think experiences are more memorable than tangible gifts, I’ve put together a mix of ideas here that should get your creative juices flowing for Valentine’s Day.
