Beauty Squared Round-Up - November 16, 2014

Good morning, happy Sunday and hello!

Hoping you are all well, warm and happy on this November morning. We missed the Round-Up last weekend - apologies. But that means there's lots to get through today! It's a supersized Round-Up!

  • If you're in the northern hemisphere, it's probably getting colder where you are, and your skin is changing accordingly. Dryness? Flakiness? Tightness? Irritation? Here are 6 ingredients to look for in your skincare products to help combat these issues.
  • Do you have fine lines around your eyes? Here's an eye primer from Amazing Cosmetics you'll want to know about.
  • Ariane AKA The Glitter Geek, has an awesome (and simple) nail art tutorial inspired by strappy shoes.
  • Don't you love lists like this? 17 beauty editors pick their favourite beauty products.
  • Almost equally as lovable - lists of overrated products. Here's one from Fee at, featuring Philosophy's Hope In A Jar and L'Oreal's Magic Nude Foundation, among others.
  • Michelle of talks skincare and Joe Fresh's brand new skincare line.
  • Pixie cuts were very trendy, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus. Did you rush to the salon to get one only to regret it later? Read this - Pixie Remorse and Remedies.
  • Here's a smouldering, grungy-cool burgundy smoky eye look to try.
  • Did you know that people used to believe that beauty marks (they weren't called that back then) were sent by the gods to mar the faces of people who were too attractive? Read more about the history of beauty marks.
  • Beginner beauty tricks and tips.
  • Lea T is one of the hottest models in the fashion and beauty worlds right now and she just snagged a contract with Redken to promote their Chromatics line. She also happens to be a transgender woman.
  • Women in India will finally be allowed to work as makeup artists, after India's Supreme Court struck down a 60-year-old clause that denied women the right to work as makeup artists because it would deny men work.
  • Here's a terrifying story: a Brazilian woman contracted HIV after sharing nail tools with a cousin when she was 12-years-old.
  • And finally, in case you haven't seen this video yet, it's worth a watch. Adults and children were asked a single question - If you chould change one thing about your body, what would it be? - and the responses are pretty telling.
