Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
Finding a one-piece swimsuit for your body type can already be difficult, but when your bust size is DD and larger, it can seem an insurmountable feat. Can any of these trendy bathings suits actually support us busty gals frolicking around the beach or pool party? The short answer: Yes, thank goodness. Many bra and swim retailers are realizing that underwire one-piece swimsuits and other styles for bigger boobs are necessary, so we're getting super cute and hot options that actually fit. Try one of these, and feel secure in your next pool volleyball match.

We all want nice skin. Heck, we want flawless skin! But from time to time we all face the dreaded breakout. Zits, pimples, acne ... call it what you want. It’s a drag, and though sometimes it can be a hormonal issue, we can decrease instances of breakouts by being conscious of the bacteria lurking at every corner.

Summer skin... What exactly is it? I define summer skin as fresh, glowing, and minimally made up. Whether you’re in a dry climate or a humid one, summer heat isn’t exactly makeup friendly. And the last thing we need in the summer is perspiration and makeup teaming up to create an unhealthy environment for our skin.
The monolid is a beautiful and unique eye shape that makes for gorgeous eye makeup if you know what you're doing. Note: Monolids are not the same as hooded eyes.

Because monolids lack a natural crease, some eye makeup tutorials aren't all that helpful, but we've got your back. Here's how to create monolid eye makeup that has dimension and doesn't take all day!

Take a glance at a skincare advertisement or two, and the enemy becomes clear. Free radicals are waging war on our skin and physical health from all sides. They must be—otherwise, why would so many facial moisturizers and eye creams claim to block them? But even if we understand that free radicals are bad and that antioxidant-packed products reduce their effects, most of us without a science background don’t know why that’s true.
