Facial and spa treatments that we used to get at our favorite salon are now becoming more and more readily available in at-home versions. One such beauty product that's effective and super simple to DIY is the facial mask. Whether it comes in mask or peel form, the facial mask is a quick way to rectify any skin type. You just have to know what to look for! Well, that's where we come in. Check out our tips for the best type of facial mask for different skin types, then click on the slideshow to see some of our favorites!Normal Skin - This is a simple one! For you, a facial mask should just be for maintenance and prevention. Look for moisturizing face masks chock full of vitamin C or anti-oxidants. Apply a face mask once every 2 weeks.Oily Skin - Look for a clay mask or a facial peel that will mattify and control shine. Steer clear of anything that's super moisturizing as this can lead to even more shine. Try a mask once a week for optimum results!Dry Skin - A facial mask once a week can do wonders for dry skin. Look for options that have vitamin E and are highly moisturizing. A quick tip for a little added hydration? Smooth on a dime sized amount of night cream after your done with the facial mask!

We've all got our morning makeup routine down pat. Face, eyes, lips ... out the door! But why not switch it up a little and give your look a makeup makeover? It's not just fun to spice things up and try out a new look, but you may be surprised with all the compliments you get! When it comes to beauty, it's all about looking your best; When it comes to mornings, it's all about the quickest and easiest ways to save time. We were inspired by backstage beauty at fashion shows and narrowed down three must-try beauty looks that are fast, simple and perfect for day! The Bold Lip - There's so many bold lip colors in style right now - Cherry red, hot pink, orange-red - and it's such an easy trend to try! Let the bold lips take center stage and keep the rest of your makeup simple with just mascara or a thin line of eyeliner and a touch of bronzer. Then using a freshly sharpened lip liner, carefully line the outside of your lips. Fill in with your desired color, blot and go! For extra shine, add a coat of clear gloss. Vibrant Eyes - Beauty is all about balance. Play up your eyes and tone down the rest of your makeup to make them really pop. Choose a vibrant shadow or shadow palette. We love teal or violet. The sweep over you lids, with the lighter color first and the darker shade in the crease. Add a thin line of eyeliner and finish with a layer or two of volumizing mascara. Complete the look with a nude or peach lip and a touch of blush at the apple of your cheeks.Bare-Faced Beauty - There's an art to making it look like you have no makeup on when you do. Start of with a tinted moisturizer and a little cream blush to give your skin a dewy look. Using an eyeshadow that's a shade or two darker than your skin tone, sweep across your lid and blend. Line your lids with a thin line of eyeliner and a few coats of lengthening and defining mascara. Fill in your brows lightly if needed and finish the look off with a peachy pink lipstick or gloss. Fin.
