Beauty Brands That Give On Giving Tuesday

Have you recovered from Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Well, get ready for Giving Tuesday! Today, we're reminded of the true spirit of this season and we're given a super easy way to participate. What began as a "give and get" avenue for businesses and consumers to donate to great causes during the holidays, has turned into a social media movement. And fortunately, this year many of our favorite beauty brands are donating up to 100% of their profits. Does it get any better?!?

Charlotte Tilbury - Make any purchase online and Charlotte Tilbury will donate 15% of its profits to Women For Women, an organization that provides resources and support for women living in poverty. Pictured: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow in Light to Medium ($68).

Free People - The retailer will be donating 25% of all profits from online and in-store sales to Girls Inc., a non-profit that provides mentoring and programming for young girls. With a selection of dozens of beauty brands, there's a lot to choose from. Pictured: Kosas Color & Light Pressed ($34).

Purlisse - This skin-care set of eight products is an amazing deal on its own. But on Giving Tuesday, 100%  of the profits from the kit will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, an organization helping women in cancer treatment feel empowered. Purlisse Skin Survival Kit ($76).

Lush - This cult-favorite hand and body lotion donates 100% of its sales to supporting human rights, animal protection, and environment conservation efforts. Lush works with dozens of charities — from BreakOUT! to Keepers Of The Water Council. Lush Charity Pot ($7.95) .

Morrocanoil - It might be cold and dry out, but this hair mask will make sure your hair never shows any suffering. On Tuesday, 10% of all sales site-wide will go to Inspired By Women, a short-film series meant to empower women. Morrocanoil Intense Hydrating Mask ($64).

Today is a really good day to give back and finish up all of that holiday shopping! To learn more about Giving Tuesday and how you can participate, visit

2018 Beauty Survival Guide For Coachella and the Music Festival Season

Kicking off in just a few days, on Friday April 13, is the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. And that means that the music festival season is finally upon us. The music festivals of today are not your mother’s “Woodstock”. Far from it in fact! Coachella is a place to see and be seen, just as much as it is a music and arts event. This is true of a lot of the major music events you’ll be attending this spring and summer. You just never know who you’re gonna run into (Trust Us On This One!) and you want to look picture perfect. Read on to find out what you do (and don’t) need to look festival festive!

Let’s start with a quick rundown of your wardrobe. Um … you’re going to be outdoors all day … and night. Not to mention that temperatures in Indio will be in the 90s. Dress in light, breathable fabrics. But, don’t forget something a little warmer for the evening because the temps can go down into the 40s at night. To get a better idea of the temp and terrain check out TME Picks: Michael Stars Faded Shade Floppy Hat ($42); Free People Braeburn Ankle Boots ($168); Westward Leaning CONCORDE 10 Sunglasses ($205); Forever 21 Hooded Denim Jacket ($32.90).

As for your beauty products, this is a place to keep it simple. We actually read a perfume suggestion for Coachella and just about died laughing. You all know we love our fragrances and we love our Fragrance Of The Month series, but anyone who’s been to a warm weather outdoor festival knows that fragrances are a lovely way to attract insects and piss off other festival-goers. However, deodorant is a must. TME Pick: Secret Outlast ($5.99). And speaking of those bugs check out Eco-Armour Outdoor Botanical Insect Repellent & Moisturizer ($12.50). Eco-Amour is a TME Favorite for a million reasons, but the double-duty Outdoor is a must-have for Coachella and all summer long!

To begin your music fest beauty regimen, first and foremost are sunscreen and beauty products that contain sunscreen. For all over protection our pick is Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ For Face & Body ($36). Next up is BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer. TME Pick: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($43 - available in 11 shades and travel size) is an oil-free formula that provides buildable coverage with the sun protection you need.

Mascara … if you must. We all have our favorite brands for everyday, but there is only one mascara that we’d wear (if we were going to bother) at Coachella. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara ($24) because it will not budge until you take it off. This isn’t our favorite type of mascara for everyday, but again, if you have to wear mascara this is the one to go with.

Just as we would probably skip the mascara, we would NEVER skip the lip balm. Tinted lip balm is a must to keep your pout pretty. TME Pick: Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20 ($8.99) is available in six shades and will keep your lips from getting sunburned and chapped, while giving them a tint of color.

Throughout the day (and night) you’re going to want to freshen up. Pixi Glow Mist ($15) is really soothing and nourishing anytime you feel like hydrating your skin. Also, an absolute must-have is a pack of cleansing cloths like La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes ($19.99). As for your hair, we recommended that cool Michael Stars hat for a reason, but you may also want to opt for dry shampoo. TME Pick: Klorane's Dry Shampoo ($19.50). 

Lastly, you need something to put all of your stuff in. TME Pick: Nasty Gal x Nila Anthony Nothin' to Hide Backpack ($40). Did we say lastly? Oops. Okay, we covered beauty survival. But, you need to remember that while you’re having a great time (and looking good doing so) be smart and stay safe! See ya’ out there. XO Team TME
