Nars Fall 2014 Eye Pencils in Night Porter and Night Bird

Nars Night Porter and Night Bird Glitter Eye LinersIt makes me really, really sad to type the words “Fall 2014″. We’re smack dab in the middle of July and I’m loving every freakin’ second of this heat! But when Nars makes products like this, you just have to share.

How To Start A Makeup and Beauty Blog in Five Easy Steps


howtostartabeautyblog

I’ll be honest, starting a beauty blog can be a little intimidating. But truthfully, the best way to get started is to just do it! It only takes about 10 minutes to start a basic blog. Here are five simple steps to get started!

1. Choose a Name

Think long and hard about this. You’ll ultimately want a name that makes you stand out, and that you’ll want to keep forever. You’ll want a name that’s unique, catchy and simple to spell.

2. Choose a Blogging Platform

Many people start their blogs with free editors like Blogger. Heck, I did the same thing. There are also other options like Tumblr, WordPress.com and OnSugar. But when I realized I needed more space and wanted more control over my blog, I moved to self-hosted WordPress. Looking back, I wish I started with WordPress! Migrating from one platform to another is pretty easy, so you have flexibility here.

If you decide to get a self hosted blog, you’ll need hosting. I’ve used GoDaddy since day one! You can pay month to month, which feels pretty easy on the pockets. Yes, this does cost you, but since you’re starting out, you can get away with hosting for $1.99 a month.
