Holiday-Ready Beauty & Detox Starring Turmeric

Holiday-Ready Beauty & Detox Starring Turmeric

Turmeric. With its rich history of uses inside, outside, on, around, and through the body, I've been thinking the tales of this blemish-blasting, scar-erasing, acne-curing, skin-brightening superspice might be worth looking into. Plus, turmeric is delicious (helloooo curry), with digestive and immunity detox powers rivaling any herb or spice (or magician) on the planet. So, since the Thanksgiving stuffing (and I do mean stuffing) is imminent, with another month of hedonism right on its tail, I'm... Read More

Mixing Mascaras: The Best Beauty Trick You’re Probably Not Doing

Mixing Mascaras: The Best Beauty Trick You’re Probably Not Doing

Mascara. I've heard it called a go-to, a must-have, a one-and-only. It's the Holy Grail of makeup. If a woman is going to pick just one product to put on her face, it's mascara. Stranded on a desert island? Mostly likely you managed to stash a tube of your favorite formula as the plane was going down. Even in our world of #BeautyWithoutRules, you'll be hard pressed to find a lady at Julep HQ who willingly skipped doing her lashes for a day. So we—womankind—should all be experts at applying it,...

Makeup for Make Believe

Makeup for Make Believe

It's that time of year again. The time where we go through our closets to find threads that are no longer relevant so that we might cut them up, tie them off, and splatter them in fake blood. And on our faces? Our dry, or sensitive, or oil-prone faces? The market for Halloween makeup is downright dreadful. Well, we just won't stand for it. We gathered some of our fave products, and put our minds to work on how we can use them in ways they weren't necessarily intended. NO RULES, right? Read on! LOOK... Read More

9 Beauty Rules That Were Made to be Broken

9 Beauty Rules That Were Made to be Broken

We share all sorts of beauty tips here on the Julep blog. But as much as we’re thrilled to relay what we’ve learned (and continue to learn) inside the beauty biz, one thing you’ll never hear from us are phrases like “you absolutely must try this”; “you should never, ever wear that”; or “every woman needs these.” Because we know all too well what those kind of statements, when you add them all up, tell women about what beauty is and how to get it: that there exists an “ideal”...

It’s Real: The Science Behind ‘Beauty Sleep’

Our girl Honey Boo Boo doesn’t mess around when it comes to beauty sleep: she needs it, and she needs it now. We don’t blame her---the age-old saying “beauty sleep” isn’t just a colloquialism. It’s scientifically proven! Studies show that getting a good night’s rest actually does improve the overall health and appearance of skin. It’s not just about avoiding dark under-eye circles, but looking younger and even happier! While you snuggle up and snooze, your metabolic and hormonal processes... Read More
