It’s Time to Step Up Your Skincare Regimen

As a little girl, I remember my mother teaching me the importance of a good skincare routine. I grew up using Noxzema’s deep cleansing cream and any lotion that was in the apartment. For a long time, I focused my skincare regimen on my face. I didn’t share my beauty products with friends, no one was allowed to touch my face, I didn’t pop blemishes in fear of a scar, and I washed my face in the morning and at night. I was serious about having a fresh face. I still am, however, as I got older I expanded my focus to my entire body beyond using a flower-scented bath wash and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter lotion. After my Noxzema phase—I still love them—I transitioned into all things Neutrogena. These drugstore brands worked perfectly for my skin and budget. Our digital magazine is all about the everyday woman, and we want to stay true to that. I asked my editors to share their favorite skincare products, and they didn’t hesitate to chat up their tried-and-true favorites. …

Get Jenna Jordan’s Runway Inspired Look

As we find ourselves eyeing bright hues and floral prints for our spring wardrobe, let’s not exclude another popular trend from the Spring/Summer 2019 runway shows in September of last year. Taking on subtle accents to wilder tones, animal print is the no-matter-what-season design that you can’t go wrong with. Style it sexy or keep it low-key like Jenna Jordan of Trendy Not Spendy. Our runway dreams feel complete with winter and spring collections from Tom Ford, Rochas, and Givenchy. From handbags to vests, these designers make animal print an effortless move to accent any look. Our look book collaboration with Jordan brings that runway trend to street style. We love how she paired an animal print trouser with a soft white t-shirt and sneakers. What’s your spring go-to look?

Ana Laura Gives Us Glam-Casual For Fall Fashion

Autumn is a complete game-changer in the fashion world. Whether you’re a fashion guru like Ana Laura, the curvaceous plus-size model in our 2018 Influencer Look Book, or you’re a laid back type of gal autumn is all about transition. We know a thing or two about layering our favorite summer pieces, diving into darker hues, plotting holiday looks, and just leaving the house in the most comfortable pieces in our closet. Our annual look book collection covers just that. First up in our look book series is Ana. Our girl models a glam yet casual look that can take you right into the holiday season.

Raye Boyce on How to Make an Impact in the Beauty Industry

It’s unexpectedly warm this Friday afternoon, and I’m feeling a little rushed as I juggle my day job and YHM. A feeling most entrepreneurs can agree on. It’s lunchtime, but I’m pacing back-and-forth in my office, eager to find a quiet space for my much-anticipated call with Raye Boyce—the stunning entrepreneur behind the international beauty brand, ITSMYRAYERAYE. I don’t mention the word “brand” lightly. Raye has journeyed a long way from posting beauty deals on Tumblr and uploading makeup tutorial videos on YouTube. She transcended her passion from a social media reach and brought her “A” game to the consumer marketplace. Her reigning YouTube channel, ITSMYRAYERAYE has received massive attention from magazines such as Elle and Cosmopolitan. She is no longer highlighted for her trendsetting looks alone but instead tapped on the shoulder to share her expertise in the beauty industry. While all this attention comes with the territory of having over 1.7 M YouTube subscribers, Raye admits she never envisioned being worthy of such admiration. “It’s a feeling of accomplishment. It’s cool to see …

MonicaStyle Muse: Be True, Be You

“Be yourself.” A simple, but often complex piece of advice that everyone has heard at least once in his or her lifetime. But what does that really mean? For Monica Veloz, the beautiful mastermind behind MonicaStyle Muse on YouTube, this means coming to terms with being black and Dominican. In one of her most popular videos on her channel titled, “I Am Too Dark to Be Dominican,” Monica educates her following about the emotional realities of giving into the world’s cultural and racial stereotypes and how she decided to brush off the haters and embrace her heritage. The bomb fashion and beauty vlogger from Bushwick, Brooklyn became motivated to start her channel when she realized that she wanted to turn on the television and watch more people who looked like her: dark-skinned Dominicans. “I used to look up Afro-Latinas and would never see myself and assumed people would just know that we existed,” Monica tells us. “It’s important to start educating people and to let people know that black people speak Spanish and so many …
