Some Things Are Cuter When They’re Teeny Tiny – Beauty Article

The shrunken face mists, deodorants, and moisturizers begging for a boop boop boop… Tiny things are adorable. It’s why we scroll through images of baby animals to decompress (which Japanese studies show could ALSO make us happier and more apt to care for others). It’s why dollhouses and delicate miniatures ever existed. It’s also part of the reason that beauty products are shrinking to wonderfully teeny-tiny dimensions.  The appeal of “pocket edition” proportions is ever-spreading. In LA, Dover Street Market’s…

Is Celery Still A Thing? We Dare to Say Yes – Beauty Article

Celery is on the verge of A Moment when it comes to skincare. Celery. For decades, relegated to brunch cocktail accessory, a vehicle for ranch and/or blue cheese dressing, a boat for more flavorful peanut butter (and raisins).

By.Me Beauty | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

I’ve taken a much closer look at MyBeautyBrand and their product line, By.Me. I ordered a few pieces (which arrived very quickly) and used the weekend to test them out. By.Me Beauty But first, what looked like an equality based influencer alternative at first glance looks very different digging deeper. The marketing is in effect an anti-influencer campaign that uses all the same methodology that standard influencing does while protesting all the while that they’re different.
