Did we mention you can also tap into your creative side and design them, too? INNI Nail Studio uses advanced graphic technology allowing beauty lovers (like you!) to create custom nail stickers, or select from thousands of designs that other INNI users have created.

Like gel polish, INNI nail stickers last up to 14 days and don’t peel or chip.

Customers also receive a compact nail file, instructions on how to apply the nail stickers and measure for finding the correct size.

BEST BROWS EVER!


wink 

Step away from the tweezers! Why? Because bold brows are hotter than ever right now! Celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Camilla Belle, Lily Collins and Katy Perry show that thicker, fuller, more natural-looking brows are not only gorgeous—they’re iconic! To help you achieve carefully shaped, bold brows, Sophisticate’s enlisted the help of Umbreen Sheikh, founder of Wink Brow Bar in NYC (pictured above). Here, she gives her best brow tips and tricks…

Start Off With A Guideline: I recommend going to a brow specialist in your area or your favorite cosmetics counter to mark up your official brow lines. They will help to measure the shape of your natural brow, which will then act as your dotted line to maintaining the shape.

Put The Tweezers Down: Once the shape is complete, follow the guidelines to fill in brows and extend the natural lines. Be mindful to those “stray” hairs that fall within the dotted lines because yes, it may look like a “stray,” but if it’s within the natural lines, it belongs there. 

Create A Shadow: Create a shadow behind the hairs by using a brow powder to create the appearance of thick and bold brows. Brow powders are easiest for beginners because you can build up the color, versus drawing it on. Leave the brow pencil to the professional because harsh filling in can age you dramatically.

Finish With A Brow Wax: Consider this “hairspray” for your brows to keep them in place all day long. A brow wax helps hold down hairs and push them closer to the skin, resulting in the appearance of thicker, fuller brows.

 

She Said…Shailene Woodley


Shailene Woodley is having an amazing year—and it’s not even over yet! She showed us how strong girl power is in her starring role in the blockbuster film Divergent. The actress also had us reaching for tissues in The Fault In Our Stars, where she sported a pixie cut that has made her Hollywood’s latest “it” girl. Is she getting used to short and sweet hairstyle? We think so!

“I look at pictures of me with long hair and I think, who is that person?”
