Revamp Your Makeup Removal Routine With These Natural Products

One of the hardest parts about putting on makeup is removing it.

The daunting tasks of removing then washing then moisturizing is a lot (especially after a long night out). The only thing that makes this process even less attractive is the amount of chemicals used to remove makeup.

But don’t fret, here’s a guide to removing your makeup with natural products.

Taking Off Makeup

The first step in your makeup removal routine really sets how easy or hard the rest of the process will be. Choose a product that removes a great amount of makeup without stripping your skin of its natural oils. An easy go-to which you probably already have in your cabinets is olive oil! Dap a sparing amount of oil on a cotton pad and get to work! Wipe over your face until all of the makeup is removed.

Washing Your Face

Removing the makeup is

Lost wedding ring at Hampton Beach found by stranger’s metal detector

HAMPTON, N.H. — A Massachusetts woman’s diamond wedding ring, a family heirloom, is back on her finger after a man with a metal detector responded to her social media plea for help and found it at the bottom of the ocean.

Francesca Teal told The Boston Globe that she was tossing a football with her husband this month at North Beach in Hampton, New Hampshire, when the ring that once belonged to her great-grandmother slipped off her finger.

They couldn’t find the ring in the water after hours of searching, the 29-year-old from Groveland said.

Met Gala 2023: Everything About The Rumoured “Space” Theme

After the divisive 2022 Met Gala, it seems that a disgruntled and self-described “depressed gay intern” has taken it upon themselves to spill the tea about the upcoming 2023 Met Gala.

Taking to real life gossip girl, Deux Moi, the incognito intern revealed that a certain luxury fashion house not only missed the memo but hinted at what next year’s theme will be.

In the iconic words of RuPaul, the category is: space realness.

Time to whip out your Supré galaxy tights or (for the more fashion-forward girlies) the Realisation Par 1996 zodiac slip dress because a certain British magazine editor is about to teleport us to Mars.

“I work at the HQ for one of the designers who misunderstood the MET Gala assignment and we just got scolded!!!!!,” the nameless tea-spilling assailant wrote.

Considering the amount of exclamation marks, we can imagine the fashion house certainly copped the

Will Fashion Retailers Launching Beauty Lines Succeed?

In 2022 so far, there are approximately 114,841 beauty brands in the US alone; last year, it was reported the market generated around $511 billion in revenue. With those figures in mind, it’s no surprise that celebrities, influencers, and dermatologists alike want a piece of the pie. However, in recent years, we’ve seen an uptick in another type of beauty brand creators: fashion labels.

Fashion brands expanding into beauty with their own lines of cosmetics and perfumes isn’t a new concept. For example, luxury fashion houses like Valentino, Giorgio Armani, and Saint Laurent have also carried beauty for decades (since the ’60s and ’70s in these cases, to be exact). “Brands are always looking for ways to better serve their customer,” Jenna Jackson, principal of growth at CAVU Venture Partners, tells POPSUGAR.

Still, beginning in the early aughts, there have been more fast-fashion brands following the trend. In

Everything Dropping at Palace This Week

Palace‘s Fall 2022 collection marks one of the British streetwear label’s widest-spanning catalogs yet, complete with an array of jackets and technical outerwear, several statement-making tops, plenty of functional pants offerings, the latest additions to its ongoing adidas collaboration and a Starter partnership. For Week 4, the skate imprint will deliver a series of graphic T-shirts and button-downs, an entourage of logo-embossed jacket-short sets and, per usual, a myriad of caps, among several other pieces.

Following last week’s bulkier fleece offerings, this week introduces a series of dual-toned, lighter-weight jacket silhouettes in black, green and purple shades. Each outerwear piece conveniently arrives with corresponding shorts, and both prominently don a white iteration of the skateboarding label’s Triferg insignia. Palace’s iconography also plants itself on the jacket’s central zipper, which appears in black on each model.

Meanwhile, a collection of button-downs boast eclectic cowboy boots in kaleidoscopic colorways, and

Stranger uses metal detector to find woman’s lost wedding ring on ocean floor

A Massachusetts woman’s diamond wedding ring, a family heirloom, is back on her finger after a man with a metal detector responded to her social media plea for help and found it at the bottom of the ocean.

Francesca Teal told The Boston Globe that she was tossing a football with her husband this month at North Beach in Hampton, New Hampshire, when the ring that once belonged to her great-grandmother slipped off her finger.

They couldn’t find the ring in the water after hours of searching, the 29-year-old from Groveland said.

Teal posted about the ordeal on Facebook and asked anyone who might frequent the beach with a metal detector to be on the lookout. Her post was shared thousands of times and got the attention of a man named Lou Asci.

Asci, 60 of Marshfield, put on a wetsuit and headlamp and went into the water searching for

Has the 2023 Met Gala Theme Actually Been Leaked Online?

WHEN THE 2022 MET GALA theme, Gilded Glamour, was announced, pretty much everyone was left scratching their heads.

With the concept so convoluted it sparked chains of social media debates of users debating what it actually constituted, it was understandable that a host of celebrity guests missed the mark (according to much of the internet, anyway) when it came to their outfits.

Accordingly, it’s been suggested the MET committee have regrouped entirely when it comes to the coveted event’s 2023 theme, opting for a decidedly more simple concept.

Is This Fashion Brand Really Sustainable Or Just Expensive, And More Ethical Shopping Questions Answered

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about problems with the fashion industry — especially fast fashion. For starters, did you know that the fashion industry is responsible for 8-10% of global carbon emissions and almost 20% of wastewater? And that’s just scratching the surface.

It’s recently been reported that some clothing from the fast fashion brand Shein contains unhealthy levels of lead, and many garment workers around the world labor in dangerous conditions for less than a living wage.

Young East Van entrepreneur’s streetwear line hits Footlocker (PHOTOS)

A 21-year-old East Vancouver man is living his dream after iconic streetwear store Footlocker stocked up on his clothing brand earlier this month.

The partnership is a major fashion feat for Nicolas Budisa, the creator of “Our Block Clothing,” and the youngest entrepreneur to ever have their clothing brand sold at Footlocker.

His designs, which are inspired by several Metro Vancouver neighbourhoods, caught the attention of one of the world’s leading shoe retailers last year.

“Footlocker reached out to me because they were beginning their new venture to start working with Canadian “homegrown” clothing brands,” Budisa told Daily Hive.

Budisa started “Our Block Clothing,” two years ago during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The clothing style features designs inspired by Vancouver and Burnaby, and neighbourhoods like Champlain Heights and Killarney. 

Budisa, a former aspiring pro soccer player, created his clothing line during the pandemic lockdown when he
