Breakups to Makeup and Sephora get married…well, sort of.

Breakups to Makeup, known for its unique accessories featuring quirky cosmetic-related slogans, has partnered with SEPHORA COLLECTION on a new accessories assortment, launching on Sephora.com and SEPHORA stores across the US and Canada starting today, April 10, 2015. You’ll be able to find “LOSING YOU HURT BUT LOSING MY MAKEUP BAG WOULD BE A TRAGEDY” and “I WOULD CRY BUT MY MASCARA IS DESIGNER”, as well as a SEPHORA COLLECTION exclusive clutch with the phrase “LIFE IS SHORT, WEAR MORE MAKEUP”.

life is short

The goal of Breakups to Makeup has always been to encourage the artistic expression and empowerment that many makeup enthusiasts feel makeup has brought into their lives. We are beyond thrilled to become a part of the beauty wonderland that they have created.” – Angelique Velez, Founder, Breakups to Makeup

So no surprise that these two would come together all in the name of beauty.

Retailing at $24 USD, they can be used as a statement piece or a travel bag to fit easily inside of your kit or suitcase. Made with a natural colored canvas material and are screen-printed with different catchy quotes on the front, definitely not your usual makeup bag!

NYFW Beauty: Jay Manuel Beauty for Bibhu Mohapatra

The Inspiration

“It’s as though she stepped out of a painting from the 1920’s but there’s a hint of modernity.  She’s iconic, mysterious and a bit melancholy. Her mood is somber” – Jay Manuel

Jay Manuel and Marla Belt for Jay Manuel Beauty

The Partnership

“I’m thrilled to collaborate with Bibhu Mohapatra and help realize his total vision for the woman of today. He’s a creative visionary whose use of architecture and ingenuity in his designs is not only a fresh but an innovative approach to his timeless and classic aesthetic.  His attention to geometric shapes, elevated patterns and colors schemes makes this partnership ideal for Jay Manuel Beauty.” – Jay Manuel

Winter Skin Protection the way a dermatologist does it

From cleansing to scrubbing and changing things up (plus how she avoids turkey neck), read on for tips from Rebecca Kazin, MD, FAAD (http://www.rkmd.com), dermatologist at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery and faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Department of Dermatology:

  1. Avoid the over-scrub: Even if you suffer from acne, skin shouldn’t be squeaky clean. Too much scrubbing only exacerbates the problem because it can cause irritation and lead to more breakouts. Use a scrub three times a week, max.
  2. Be gentle: You don’t need to wash with an antibacterial soap, as it can severely dry skin and lead to itching and redness. Instead, use a gentle cleanser. If you suffer from acne, use a clarifying cleanser with salicylic acid.
  3. Don’t overhaul it all: If you’re skin care regimen isn’t giving you results you want, simply change one product at a time. Otherwise, you may have a reaction, and if you’re using five new products at once, you’ll have no idea what caused it. Use a new product for at least four weeks before adding another new one into your routine.
  4. Protect your neck: And chest, and hands. They all give away your age faster than your face. Apply the same anti-aging products that you use on your complexion on your neck, chest, and hands to rejuvenate skin and protect against wrinkles, slack skin, and discoloration.

Winter is the time, especially with the temperatures dipping way down l-o-w…means extra care.  Remember what you do in the winter, will show in the spring. This is not just for the ladies – fellas – your skin needs special treatment too. So take care and be kind.
