The Best Mousses to Give You Perfect Hair

suave mousse

It probably goes without saying, but we love a good makeover—and not just the kind spotted on the red carpet. When we see products getting makeovers, we admit it: we get a thrill.

And the latest product to get a complete makeover? Mousse. That's right. Say goodbye to the dry, crunchy curls created by the mousses of the 90s; today's generation of mousses create hair that is soft and non-sticky, boosting volume like we always wished their old school counterparts would have. Hairstylists use the product to add texture, volume and hold all-in-one to braids, ponytails and updos. And they work on any hair type because they don't add weight.

Convinced? Maybe it's time to try a new mousse yourself. Check out our slideshow of the best formulas on the market that promise height, volume and texture, with none of that 90s crunch.

Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Soufflé Mousse ($4.99)

This drugstore buy is the epitome of luxe for less. The formula is so light-weight you can apply from root to rip without weighing strands down. This mousse is perfect for creating lightly messy spring braids.

wen mousse

Wen Nourishing Mousse ($28)

Not only does it pump up strands and create bounce, but the formula also conditions and contains peptides and B vitamins that work together to strengthen the hair over time. Plus, it comes in three fragrances: Sweet almond mint, pomegranate and lavender.

dove mousse

Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse ($4.99)

This product is formulated specifically for curly girls, but unlike mousses of years past, it leaves each curl touchably soft and defined—never dry and crunchy.

living proof mousse

Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse ($26)

The hold may be light, but this mousse's hold lasts all day. It's a must for days when a hair touchup isn't is the cards. The hair remains full, bouncy and frizz-free, even through humidity, which is definitely going to become a bonus as the weather gets warmer.

bumble and bumble mousse

Bumble and bumble Thickening Full Form Mousse ($30)

This runway favorite contains shaping polymers that provide a super-strong grip—making it our go-to for updos that need a bit of rough texture and volume.

kerastase mousse

Kérastase Volumactive Mousse ($42)

This multitasker, targeted specifically for fine hair, doubles as a heat protectant when coated from root to tip. We love products that multi-task, and anything that gives us volume AND protects from damage is good in our book.

john frieda mousse

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Building Mousse ($5.99)

Volume is a given, right? Well this formula also contains panthenol, a protein that helps Click Here For More

5 Totally Effortless Spring and Summer Hair Ideas

ImaxTree

We're not particularly high-maintenance any time of the year, but our true laziness really shines when the warm weather hits. Who wants to spend that much time on their hair only to find it roughed up by a swift breeze or a dip in the ocean? Lest you think we're willing to sacrifice looking good—we aren't—in order to make our spring and summer beauty routines that much easier, we've managed to master these 5 seriously effortless hairstyles instead. There will be no compromises made here.

ImaxTree

Not only is this romantic look perfect for both daytime and a night out, but it couldn't possibly be simpler. Just create a center part and take one section from one side of your head, twist it back loosely, and pin. Repeat the same on the other side—you can loosen up the twists a bit with your fingers if you want a softer effect like this.

ImaxTree

ImaxTree

This is one of our favorite fallback looks any time of year, but it becomes a real go-to once the warm weather hits and we don't quite know what to do with our second-day (or later…) hair. All it takes is raking the front layers straight back with your fingers and securing in place, whether you use a cute clip or just some pins. Leave the rest hanging loose, and run some texturizing cream through the ends if you're feeling like you need a boost. So easy.

You don't even have to know how to go French to score this pretty braided look. Simply braid two sections (one on each side) away from your face, then pull all of your hair back into a messy twisted bun before pinning in place. It looks way more complicated than it is, and who wouldn't like to look like they made more of an effort than they actually did?

A deep side part is universally flattering and can be worn on all hair lengths, styles, and textures. It's best worn on slightly dirty hair so that it'll hold regardless of your hair's natural direction. Use a fine-tooth comb to create the deep part, then tuck the side with more hair behind your ear. You can put it up or leave it down—it's especially cute on a short bob.

ImaxTree

When it comes to simple styling for long hair, it doesn't get much easier (really!) than using a bit of gel or mousse to smooth strands down before pushing the bulk of it behind one ear. It'll give you a polished look even if you've just returned from hanging out poolside, and the more texture your hair is already infused with, the better—it'll preserve volume while still taking on that sleek, shiny effect.

The 7 Natural Beauty Tips You Need Now

natural beauty tips

Photo: IMaxTree

It's true: you're already a natural beauty.

We don't mean that the only “good” makeup is no-makeup makeup. We mean that loving yourself and appreciating your own uniqueness is essential for your happiness and the overall success of your beauty game.

Even though makeup can be used to conceal or create (and the latter is a lot of fun!), sometimes you just want a simple, easy look that enhances your own unique natural beauty.

Well, we're here to show you how to do just that. Here are 7 tips to create a gorgeous natural beauty look!

1. Care for your skin.

The best way to let your natural beauty shine is to take care of your skin. This means washing your face in the morning, after working out and at night, and NO sleeping in your makeup (if you have time to put it on, you have time to take it off). Always wear sunscreen, even if it's overcast, and don't skip the moisturizer. Beyond that, taking the time to do a great mask once or twice a week (or even while you sleep!) is a great idea, as is having a good dermatologist in your corner. You need someone you can trust to talk about any big skin issues that come up, after all.

2. Use a light foundation.

One of the biggest natural beauty tips out there is to skip any kind of skin-perfecting makeup entirely and just go bare-faced. While this is fantastic for those with naturally perfect complexions, it's a little exclusionary to those of us looking to even out our skin tones. Instead of eschewing all makeup, be smart about the kind you use: switch out your mattifying foundation for something lighter and more dewy. BareMinerals Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream ($29) is totally revolutionary, giving coverage that is lightweight (like a tinted moisturizer) yet buildable (like a foundation). The result? A complexion so natural looking, people will swore you #wokeuplikethis.

3. Use a radiant powder.

No point in covering up your glowing skin with heavyweight powder, is there? Instead, look for powders that illuminate instead of straight-up mattifying. NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder ($36) sets makeup and kills oily shine, while also adding a lit-from-within radiance to skin. Bonus: unlike many other translucent powders, this one doesn't “flash back” in photos, so all your selfies are guaranteed safe.

4. Add a cream highlighter.

Highlighter in general is a great way to add shimmer to specific areas of your face; the cream formula mimics the shine of skin more naturally than powders do. RMS Beauty Living Luminizer ($38) is the gold standard of cream highlighters for it's gorgeously shimmery look, pearlescent color and blendability. If you're on a budget, we also really love Maybelline Color Tattoo Metals Cream Gel Eye Shadow ($5.60) in Barely Branded. Sure, it's technically an eyeshadow, but we love the subtle golden glow it gives our complexion.

Score Blake Lively’s Red Carpet Look for Under $20

It kind of goes without saying that Blake Lively is one of our eternal beauty crushes. Whether she's wearing long mermaid waves or rocking a high, tight ponytail, the girl always looks gorgeous, so she's always one to watch. It should also go without saying that when we heard she'd be making her first post-baby red carpet appearance last night for the “Age of Adaline” premiere in NYC, we were all ears. (Or eyes, rather.)

The star certainly didn't disappoint: Gracing the red carpet in a glamorous red gown, she looked totally classic from head to toe, with a stunning makeup look to match. The best part? Blake's makeup was done by Elaine Offers for L'Oreal Paris, which means that you can find each product used at your favorite drugstore. That's right—you can have every single product on this list for $25 under. Here's how to get the look …

Step 1: Elaine prepped skin with L'Oreal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur for a smooth, even-toned canvas.

Step 2: She then used L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Sun Beige for all-over coverage, then topped off Blake's cheekbones with Magic Lumi Highlighter for radiance. Elaine also blended the highlighter into the inner corners of Blake's eyes.

Step 3: Elaine used the mid-toned browns in the brand new L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude to add depth and dimension to Blake's eyes, contouring the corners with one of the darker brown shades.

Step 4: Next, Elaine applied L'Oreal Paris Smokissime Eyeliner in Black as close to the lash line as possible to add definition before lining Blake's waterlines with Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter for the bright-eyed look the actress is known for.

Step 5: Elaine used L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper in Light/Medium to fill in Blake's brows and emphasize her arches.

Step 6: She then coated Blake's lashes with the classic, can't-go-wrong L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara.

Step 7: For Blake's gorgeous natural-but-better lip look, Elaine blended a combination of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lipliner in Coral and L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm Pop in Bold Blush for an end result that was “shapely and pretty, but not overly defined or too bold in color.”

Not only is this look simple to attain on your own, but it's budget-conscious, too, and each product is a staple you'll use again and again. So what are you waiting for? Go try it out, and give Blake a run for her red-carpet money!

How to Stay Moisturized Without Getting Greasy

PeopleImages.com/Digital Vision/Getty Images

PeopleImages.com/Digital Vision/Getty Images

Those of us with naturally oily skin are well-acquainted with the ongoing struggle that is maintaining the perfect balance between moisturized skin and greasy skin, but with summer on the horizon, we think we can all agree that this struggle becomes relevant for everyone. Sure, a bit of shine is inevitable (we prefer to think of it as a natural, healthy glow), but these key tips, from our favorite non-greasy moisturizers to the right amount of moisturizer to use, should make avoiding the oil-slick look that much easier.

Use an oil-free moisturizer.
We're all for using oils in place of moisturizer, but when it comes to tempering oil production, an oil-free moisturizer may be a wise choice, even for dry and sensitive skin types. Let your favorite face oils work the night shift and wear a lightweight oil-free formula during the day—Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer is one of our favorites, as it's perfectly hydrating and leaves a smooth, healthy finish behind, but it also contains oil-absorbing spheres that wick shine away yet won't dry out sensitized skin.

Apply a mattifying primer.
Even if you don't regularly work a mattifying primer into your routine throughout the rest of the year, it's definitely a worthwhile investment if you're prone to warm weather greasies. You'll want to look for primers that combat shine while also containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, as they'll add an extra hydration boost as well, so it's a win-win. We're most recently obsessed with Peter Thomas Roth Pore Putty, a lightweight, pore-blurring treatment that you can apply as a primer or pat on top of your finished makeup to keep shine at bay for a smooth, airbrushed look.

Look to serums.
Lightweight serums make a great replacement for thicker moisturizers in the spring and summer, especially for oily skin, as they'll hydrate while sinking into the skin rather than sitting on top of it. Eve Lom Intense Hydration Serum feels like water going on, thanks to its high concentration of hyaluron, which essentially locks moisture into the skin without adding weight.

Don't over-moisturize.
Knowing just how much product to use can be a little dodgy, but as a general rule, you need no more than a dime-sized amount of serum or moisturizer to cover and properly hydrate your whole face. Any more and your skin just won't absorb it, leaving the excess to turn into an oil slick rather than serve its intended purpose. Just apply a small amount at first and massage it into your skin until absorbed—you can always add more if you need to.

Choose a matte sunscreen.
We know: Sunscreen can be the number one most challenging foe in the battle against greasiness, but it doesn't have to be that way. While sunscreens of yore tended to be an inevitable source of oiliness and even clogged pores, our prayers have been answered, and there are now plenty of matte-finish SPF formulas available to choose from.

Do Sunscreen Alternatives Really Work?

sunscreen alternatives

We all know how important sunscreen is to our skin's health, and with the warm weather coming up, we're ready to slather ourselves in SPF one million yet again. But over the past few years, SPF alternatives have hit the market: everything from SPF-infused makeup to drinkable sunscreen. But do these sunscreen alternatives actually work? We caught up with Rhonda Klein, MD/MPH, a board certified dermatologist, to find out.

Alternative: UPF (Ultraviolet Protective Factor) Clothing.
Does it work: Yes.
Since most people don't apply enough sunscreen (you need one shot glass amount for each part of the body), clothing can offer even more protection, says Dr. Klein. “As long as you have the proper UPF, you don't need sunscreen underneath,” says Dr. Klein. UPF ratings, which measure how much ultraviolet light fabric can block, are comparable to SPF—so anything from 30-50 UPF offers 97-99 percent sun protection. “Clothing with darker colors, a tighter weave or synthetic fabrics all block harmful rays better than loosely woven clothing with natural fibers.”

And if you don't want to buy special UPF clothing, you can add the protection to your current wardrobe. “There's a product called Sun Guard ($3.99) which you put into the washing machine, and it actually adds sun protection [up to UPF 30] to your clothing.”

Alternative: SPF Makeup.
Does it work: Kind of.
“Makeup with SPF is great as a base, but it's definitely not giving you the protection of sunscreen,” says Dr. Klein. To get the same amount of sun protection from your cosmetics as you get from regular sunscreen, you'd need to apply seven times the normal amount of SPF-containing foundation and about 14 times the normal amount of powder.

Makeup also breaks down some of the chemicals in sunscreen, so you'd need to reapply that amount of makeup every two hours to get the proper amount of protection. And who has time for that? Instead, Klein recommends applying a daily moisturizer with SPF underneath your makeup. And for sunscreen reapplications without redoing your makeup, she recommends SPF powders, like Colorscience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 30 ($57). “It's an easy way to reapply throughout the day, and it's better than nothing.”

Alternative: Ingested SPF.
Does it work: No way.
Drinkable sunscreen is the latest skincare trend, but water that offers sun protection sounds too good to be true to us. Turns out, it is—and Dr. Klein pulls no punches in explaining why. “The way these sunscreens claim to work is that the water molecules just below the surface of the skin vibrate and emit frequencies that will cancel out the burn-causing frequencies caused by UVA and UVB rays. This is scientifically impossible, from everything that I've read.”

That being said, she does recommend Heliocare Daily Use Antioxidant Formula ($30), a pill that offers some protection. “While this product should not replace sunscreen, it can help patients with the propensity to burn. They believe it works by decreasing the amount of free radicals on the skin.” However, because it's ingested and has Click Here For More
