SKIN

• Organic cosmetics is a $7 billion industry, even though the “USDA requires that only 95 percent of the ingredients must be organically grown.” So basically, organic isn’t completely organic. If you're picky, you probably find this bogus. [Bella Sugar]

• Don’t want everyone in the office you’re going for a Brazilian wax? Lifebooker.com is the Seamless Web of scheduling beauty appointments. Thank you, God, for this. THANK YOU. [Beauty Blogging Junkie]


MAKEUP

• Aaron De Mey, makeup artist at Givenchy, created his dramatic eye look by taking a lighter to a ceramic plate — not by using liner pencils in bulk. Heavy-handed eyeliner junkies, take note. [Allure]

• For gold-shadow lovers, this shimmery pink shadow from Nars flatters lids with a softer tint. [Daily Obsession]


NAILS
