Everyone’s favorite Colourpop Cosmetics has been on fire ever since launching in 2014. The affordable makeup brand proved that luxury products are no longer defined by the price point.

The beloved makeup brand Becca Cosmetics has been keeping our glow game strong ever since it launched. Its powder and liquid highlighters are a staple in almost every makeup bag. Beauty gurus have thousands of videos that praise Becca’s insanely glowy products while professional makeup artists swear by them. There isn’t a single makeup obsessive that hasn’t tried some of Becca’s products for a radiant skin. Now the brand has some very exciting news for all its loyal fans: there is a Skin Love collection coming that promises more products to achieve that seamless glowing complexion.
Yesterday’s hype was all about GlamGlow and their first makeup product. Today in the beauty news section we have a completely opposite example of a brand who is undertaking a different action. Tarte is one of the most popular makeup brands at the moment. Fans are obsessed with their Shape Tape Concealer and Amazonian Clay Foundation. That’s why we’re more than excited to announce that Tarte is now launching a sister skincare label called Awake.
The concept of Awake is really amazing. We’re talking about products that will help your skin feel fresh and well-rested. It was inspired by busy ladies, who are always on the go and struggle to keep up with their schedule. The range offers products for a variety of skin tones. As the name suggests, your face will look awake even if you had a long night.
Awake has actually been around since 1995 but is now getting a completely different look and products. At that time their packaging was not so alluring, although the concept of organic skincare was still present. Thanks to the label’s creative director Daniel Kiyoi every single packaging today has a special meaning, intricately hinting the benefits of the products.
“The Awake Effect [the uh-weyk ih-fekt]: you can’t always get a good night’s sleep, but your skin doesn’t need to show it. Full of natural, antioxidant-rich ingredients, Awake is beauty sleep in a bottle that’s meant to optimize your routine & help your skin reach its true potential (in no time at all!). #bottledbeautysleep #awakebeauty”- says the label’s announcement.
There are already several items in the line that the beauty community can’t wait to put on a test. If you’re struggling with large pores and uneven complexion, Awake has the perfect solution. Their Pore Down Tightening Concentrate is priced at $38. It’s a silicone-free serum, which hydrates the skin, eliminates the dead skin and retexturizes it. Other highlights include a trio of “shots”, Hydra, Firma, Balance, vitamin C-infused serum, tinted lip balms and more.
Tarte’s packaging is always next-level. So the same thing applies to the Awake offerings. Everything looks so cute and cheeky. Bottles feature cute prints including tiny hearts, dots, flowers, stars. The colors are pretty, pastel and alluring. If you’ve been looking for a fairly affordable skincare label that will keep your complexion fresh and radiant, you might want to try out Awake. According to the announcement, all of their products are vegan, cruelty-free and only contain ingredients that are great for the skin.
You can start shopping the entire collection at awakebeauty.com. The prices range from $16 up to $38.

Beach days are upon us and some of us may be so desperate to sink our toes into that warm sand that we could forget the things that are essential for a fun day at the beach. I’m not talking about just your towel and tanning oil. Not taking care of yourself while having a sun day, fun day can quickly turn into a not so fun zone, post sun. Check out our list of highly recommended and reviewed products to make the most of your summer days ahead.
SUNBLOCKS AND TANNING LOTIONS:
You can still get a tan while using SPF. It’s so important not to burn while trying to get that golden glow. A sunburn is more than just being uncomfortable for a couple of days. That burn increases your chances of dehydration, premature aging, and later developing skin cancer.
I love a good golden tone so I like to layer this Maui babe browning lotion with a spray on sunblock. Then post sun use their moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated (no peeling) and lock in that glow.
Get This Browning Lotion For $14.53 Here.
Get This After-Sun Lotion For $15.79 Here.
Supergoop is a great line for sun protection and they have a lot of amazing products, but their everyday sunblock is great for those who are really sun sensitive.

If you want something on the lighter SPF side, Peak sunscreen is great. It’s one of the very few on the market that’s all natural & it gives 80 minutes of water resistant 30 spf.
Get This All Natural Sunblock For $19.99 Here.
Finding a sunblock for your face that does not cause a breakout can be pretty tough. Again, I go to supergroup to solve this problem. Their “unseen sunscreen” is great for all skin types and has a SPF of 40.

Celebrity makeup lines are a huge thing right now. Remember years ago when everybody started launching their own perfumes? It seems that A-listers are obsessed with beauty nowadays. Considering the success of celebrity-owned brands such as Kylie Cosmetics, KKW Beauty, and Fenty Beauty it’s understandable that stars would want to make put their name on makeup products.
The next celebrity in line to launch a makeup brand is Lady Gaga. The singer has reportedly filed an application to trademark the name Haus Beauty for a cosmetics brand. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website, Lady Gaga’s company, Ate my Heart Inc. requested a standard character mark in February this year. Haus Beauty will be a huge beauty brand with a wide range of products. The brand will include beauty products such as moisturizer, face cleansers, hand creams, toner, scrubs, masks, sunscreen, face wipes, self-tanner, perfume, nail polish, body oil and more. There are also makeup products such as foundations, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick, and lip gloss.
Lady Gaga hasn’t said anything about her possible cosmetics line yet. However, looking back on some of her previous Instagram posts it seems that the star was low-key hinting the upcoming line. On her posts, she has been adding hashtags such as #haus, #hausofgaga, and #hauseditorials. Now that Haus Beauty is reportedly in the works her hashtags make perfect sense.
The Haus Beauty will be the first independent makeup brand for the singer. However, she has worked on a few beauty projects in the past. In 2009 and 2010 she was a part of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign. The singer dropped her own lipstick and lip gloss shade to raise money for AIDS research. She also has her own perfume that launched in 2012, Lady Gaga Fame.
