Finding Summer Dresses And Holiday Clothes In The Winter

Plan on taking a holiday trip this winter to somewhere warm but do not have any summer dresses? Finding summer clothes in the middle of winter can be extremely difficult. Almost every shop you visit will have their full line of fall and winter inventory in stock to prepare for the colder weather. As a result visiting any of the major retail outlets simply will not have holiday clothes and summer clothes in stock during the colder parts of the year.

Despite the challenges you can still find great holiday clothes (including summer dresses and even beach dresses) any time of the year if you know where to look. Here are a few ways you can get your hands on cute summer dresses for your holiday trip during the winter months:

Classified Sites

One great way to find summer clothes is through online classified sites. To make room for their winter outfits, a lot of women get rid of their used summer dresses by selling them online through sites like Gumtree, craigslist, or Loot. One great thing about using one of these sites is that you can typically find low priced items since they are used; one downside, though, is that your selection can still be limited depending on when you need to buy your summer clothes. You typically only see a large collection of summer clothes on classified sites at the end of autumn or start of winter.

Online Shops Such As Soleil Summer Dresses

If you prefer not to purchase used clothes, want a larger variety, or simply cannot find what you are looking for on classified sites the best choice may be online shops. Regardless of when you are looking to buy holiday clothes or summer dresses, there are a few online boutique stores that specifically cater to these clothes such as. At Soleil Summer Dresses you can find any type of summer holiday clothes in the middle of winter or any other time of year.

Finding Unusual His and Hers Wedding Rings

These days it is not unusual for couples to want to shy away from the wedding rings of the past and obtain matching his and hers rings. A growing number of couples are finding that they want wedding rings that stand out from everyone else’s. Generally when a couple gets his and hers wedding rings they match as closely as popular.

Obtaining unusual wedding rings for both bride and groom requires a couple to agree on what they want in a ring. Most couples choose a ring style or a type of stone that reflects something about them as individuals and one that reflects the love they share for each other that led them to wanting to get married. There are some outstanding and unique wedding rings available online from OrlaJames.com.

While not every jewelry store sells his and hers wedding rings they are easier to find than they used to be. There are now specialty stores that offer a great selection of matching wedding rings for a bride and groom. Many brides prefer that their wedding ring match their engagement ring so couples usually choose his and hers wedding rings based partly on what the engagement ring looks like. In most cases it is preferable to have the engagement ring and weddings be either both silver or both gold. Some couples choose to make their rings even more unique by making sure they have a combination of gold and silver or even yellow or rose gold.

The options couples have for his and hers wedding rings include 14k, 18k and platinum rings. A specialty jewelry store will likely offer a decent selection in each of these categories. Couples who want truly unique matching rings often choose to have their own rings designed by a jeweler.

Aside from the unique aspect of choosing his and hers wedding rings many couples choose to do this because jewelry stores that carry them sell them as a ring set, which often costs less than purchasing two wedding rings separately. This is also a more efficient way to purchase the wedding rings quickly; freeing up the bride and groom to spend more time making their wedding preparations.

The cliché of couples who have been together a long time beginning to look like each other is somewhat related to the fact that some couples prefer the same styles and designs, which is another compelling reason to purchase his and hers wedding rings. Doing so makes it much easier for a couple to purchase their rings in the same style as rings purchased from separate stores may be drastically different.

There are so many options available to couples who choose his and hers wedding rings. Deciding together what the bride and groom want in their wedding rings can bring them even closer together and give that much more meaning to their wedding day. As a growing number of couples shy away from typical wedding traditions it is likely that the popularity of his and hers wedding rings will continue to grow.

What Colours Your 2014?

The rapidity of reproduction means that what we see on the fashion catwalks takes little time to filter into the home, generally starting with accessories and accent pieces before transitioning to larger-scale, higher investment items. But the use of colour is important to observe. While each colour body and/or manufacturer has at least one dominant neutral colour scheme within their 2014 trend palettes, colour definitely comes into play.

Martin Tustin-Fuchs, brand manager for Dulux paint, explains that with the 2014 palette, “we’ll see novel shades and unexpected combinations of colours in the year ahead in all areas of home decor – reds are more tangy, oranges are more expressive, greens are more jeweled, and blues are more tropical.”

Indeed, there has already been a shift to deeper, richer tones throughout fall 2013. Colours remain bright, bold and playful, which is a continuation – and furtherance – of current trends. Darker shades of gray are again (or still) being universally dubbed “the new black,” and gray undertones persist in influencing many of the most appealing shades, earthy hues and neutrals among them.

But 2014 also draws attention toward blues, purples and pinks. A few could be branded “pastels,” but more often than not, the tones are lively and bold. Consider some of the following descriptions from the Pantone View home and interiors 2014 trend palettes:

  • a melding of both vibrant and deep hues… intertwined in intriguingly inventive colour combinations
  • colours of power and energy counter-balanced by the… hues that express the necessity for introspection and calm
  • both svelte and voluptuous… attention to detail and the drama of high fashion… can be theatrical in nature
  • a sense of adventure, wit, experimentation and discovery… “tongue in cheek” in attitude and highly original in colour juxtapositioning and cleverly conceived in evocative combinations
  • a symphony of elevated and voluptuous color to… evoke an atmosphere full of vivid richness and blissful excess

Reds will deviate from the berry tones of recent years toward more energetic reds with orange undertones. Pair these emboldened hues with rich jewel tones, elegant darks, warm browns, spicy oranges or other bright hues.

Oranges move away from the more citrus-like tones of late to a more spicy, earthy palette. Though these new orange hues lack the pink undertones of prior seasons, they look fantastic with pastel pinks and grays, or can be tempered with more complementary dark blues and turquoise.

Yellows have returned in a big way with a resurgence in gold and brass tones. While just about anything will go, look for a greater dominance among softer, more delicate yellows, such as PPG’s 2014 colour of the year, Turning Oakleaf.

Greens made a strong comeback in 2013 with the strength of emerald and other jewel tones. With the prevalence of blues and grays, it should come as no surprise that greens will lean more toward the blue spectrum, embracing hybrids like teal. Watery palettes, combining multiples shades of greens and blues, will no doubt be a favorite. Based on early trend palettes for 2015, expect to see more green, both directly and as undertones for prominent blues and yellows as 2014 draws to a close.

Blues will favor the ocean, from tropical paradise to deepest sea. With all the agates and high-sheen finishes seen at High Point, expect blue to sparkle.

Violets are moving along two distinct pathways, as is evidenced by Pantone’s Radiant Orchid versus Sherwin-Williams’ Exclusive Plum. The red-purples are more daring and thought provoking, while the blue-purples are much softer, bringing with them a certain tranquility.

For those with a less vivid approach to colour, boldness and vibrancy are counter-balanced by sophistication and simple elegance. In cases such as this, colours are unassuming and are harmonized rather than fighting for centre stage.

There is more subtlety in the transition between tones within a particular scheme, presenting a more classic, timeless feel. Keep in mind that “timeless” does not necessarily equate to an abundance of typical neutral tones. There is plenty of room for experimentation; use it!

How to Find the Best Men’s Engagement Rings

Engagement rings are not only for bride-to-be’s anymore as the world is constantly changing and you don’t need to be permanently stuck to the stereotype ideas that girls are the only ones who have the right to have engagement rings.

Marriage proposal is a man’s work but the world is in modern era where girls and boys have an equal right. It is a very trivial thing for men to do but women, proposing to their partners are another thing. Engagement rings are a sign of committing oneself to another. Even though it is not in the common tradition, modern men also want to have their own engagement rings that symbolize the love of women to their fiancé. Men’s engagement rings can vary from different colors and can be decorated with gold, silver or any design that will suit their taste.

Giving a man his own engagement ring is a new developing trend. It is no longer a ladies’ affair to have a pre-wedding decoration. Men also want to have something that will give people an idea that they are soon to be getting married. It is not the way, people generally do it but men’s engagement rings will make it more appropriate for both parties if they have engagement rings to show that they are committed to each other for the rest of their lives. Some men may think that receiving an engagement ring is very gay and their inner alpha machismo may run amok but having engagement ring is only a sign that a couple expresses their commitment prior to their wedding.

In modern times, announcing an engagement is often done publically but engagement parties vary from culture to culture. Others think of another way on how to propose to make their engagement an unforgettable experience and to make it unique as much as possible.

Here are Some Examples of Engagement Rings Suited for Men’s Taste
” Estate rings – vintage jewelry and antiques gemstones rings that embrace the old-fashion in a new and modern way.
” Nature-inspired rings – Rings that features nature-inspired design and made out of natural wood. This rings is eco-friendly and handmade so, it will definitely suit man’s masculinity.
” Novelty rings – inexpensive rings that can serve as a makeshift engagement rings until you exchange a real wedding rings. You can choose something that are based from their interest and hobbies.

You can also choose industrial rings that are made out of stainless steel, tungsten and titanium. It will make a great men’s engagement rings. Industrial bands are sleek and modern that will suit man’s taste and it is less expensive than gemstone rings.

The idea of giving an engagement ring to a guy has become a phenomenon. Others might think that it is only suitable for gay marriage but it is a sign that the boundaries between sexes are getting blur. Getting a “Yes” for men is never been easy and it will only be fair if women do the same.

The Year’s Latest Sexy Lingerie Styles

There is something wondrously alluring about wearing a brand new set of beautiful lingerie. Whether it is the fact that no one is aware you have got something so sexy on underneath your outfit. Maybe it’s because it gives you an inner confidence to the be the woman you always aspire to be, whatever the reason purchasing beautiful lingerie is a feel good moment. Therefore, brand-new from the intimate apparel catwalks of London, I’ve honed in on the key trends in luxury and designer lingerie that you need to know about, to make sure your lingerie wardrobe remains as sexy as our girlfriends in Europe. So eliminate those ‘old woman’ panties, toss out your dull grays and make space for these fashionable styles.

Underwear as Outerwear

Boasting body and a touch of bra isn’t a new craze for the A-List. Ladies’ designs are in the thick of revisiting all things early 1990s, from grunge, think  Dries Van Noten’s jewelled cotton shirts, Junya Watanabe’s denims plus Vivienne Westwood’s craftily frayed knits to the all-conquering platform trainers, think Giuseppe Zanotti, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Christian Louboutin. So it’s not much of a shock that the ‘underwear as-outerwear’ trend is back in vogue. This time around though, it’s not so much what you see, more what you don’t.

The Layered Bra

Bras with lace overlays decorating the straps, as well as cup area, were another key trend we noticed from the collections in Paris. These elegant bras are probably one of my most loved trends.

Polka Dots

Polka dots print is a favourite of the runway shows from the past few seasons, showing absolutely no sign of falling out of favour.

The Triangle Bra

A step up in style from the more supportive, fuller cup forms has seen a celebration of the triangle formed bra in 2014.

Bridal Lingerie

A lot of would-be brides place support towards the top of their menu of needs when looking for the luxury designer bridal lingerie for their big day. For that reason, it is not surprising that your classic wedding corset is still a popular option. A properly chosen and fitted corset can provide excellent support for any breast, and not forgetting the terrific slimming impact to the waist!

We notice a lot of the up-to-date collections of wedding dresses from top designers are open neck. Sweetheart fronts or open low back designs, as gorgeous as they are, can begin to pose issues when it comes to suitable lingerie. Instantly you ought to be looking at a strapless wedding corset or even a low back wedding corset, to make sure your lingerie line remains out of view.

Your wedding lingerie must be the unsung heroine of one’s day, it has to provide you with all of the comfort and give you support need and yet stay hidden.

2014 Fashion Trends: Do The Biggest Trends Of 2004 Still Hold Up?

Here, we’re going to explore those trends. Or more specifically, ten trends that defined 2004, and whether or not we should burn our photos or our clothes or our memories, if at all possible.
In the words of Paris herself, “That’s hot.” (Like, this article.)

1. What: Von Dutch

The story: Thanks to the likes of Paris, Nicole Richie, and Ashton Kutcher, trucker hats – specifically of the Von Dutch variety – were ushered into the mid-2000s for reasons no one can really understand. However, we must try. Was it the overt logos? (Let us remember it was around the same time Louis Vuitton bags became a status symbol.) Was it the bright colours? (Maybe? We were teens, and still associated “fun” with “a bright pink trucker hat.”) Was it because famous people were doing it? (Absolutely.) So we must learn from our mistakes.

Do they still hold up: No. No they don’t. But in 15 years they will when they’re old enough to be hot commodities at thrift sores.

2. What: Ruffled Mini-Skirts

The story: Part of the uneven, cotton, flow-y skirt movement, the mini versions presented themselves in time for spring – when you could pair them with polo shirts, skate shoes, or yes: Ugg boots (or knee-high if you are Paris Hilton, of course); a good look for Easter dinner (we told ourselves in one, en route to Easter dinner 2004).
Do they still hold up: Technically? There are still ruffled mini skirts that exist. In the case of them existing, absolutely they hold up. Can you find one now? Yes, you can. Should you buy and wear it? With an oversize sweater from a thrift store, only.

3. What: Polo Shirts

The story: And as if it were 1991, polo shirts returned with a vengeance. But not just any polo shirts: fitted, “preppy” styles that would pass the “Laguna Beach” dress code. Soon, the likes of Abercrombie, American Eagle, Hollister, and Aeropostale were stocking up on striped, patterned, and logo versions – only to slowly establish the uniform for frats indefinitely.

Do they still hold up: First, everything will always hold up if you can make it your own. That’s what style is. But are you going to find under-sized styles piled in the above-mentioned stores? Only Abercrombie – but be careful, because you have to be very cool to shop there.

4. What: Uggs

The story: Once upon a time, a unisex boot made from sheepskin and used in Australian surf culture descended on our fair continent and was used in the opposite way: against snow and ice, when they offered no actual protection from those things. And then they were used as an everyday shoe. And then they were used in conjunction with mini skirts, and the rest is our species’ legacy.

Do they still hold up: They are still everywhere, absolutely. And that’s what we get for wearing them, and defending them, so this is our karma. Forever. (Please stop wearing them for your own safety – at least in the winter to prevent falling on ice.)

5. What: Graphic T-Shirts

The story: Graphic t-shirts have always existed, but there was a boom in the mid-2000s thanks to (yes, again!) Ms. Paris Hilton who, now that we’re talking about it, really did set a fashion precedent. And was that really so wrong? (Not really. And before you answer or argue, think about how Kim Kardashian’s setting the precedent in 2014.)

Do they still hold up: Absolutely. Are you kidding? Only now they’re cropped, made of sweatshirt, and have pizza on them. What a wonderful time to be alive.

6. What: Velour/Track Suits

The story: Today, workout and leisure gear look almost futuristic or at least fit kind of reasonably. But then? Enter: the velour zip-ups, pants, and matching suits that returned from the ’70s for no reason other than to confuse our parents. Especially since these leisure suits were absolutely not being worn for workout purposes.
Do they still hold up: Every spring, we usher in a new era of sports or sports-influenced styles, so yes, this trend is immortal. But as for the velour? Your best bet is to head to L.A. – or at least the costume department from “The Bling Ring.” (Though bonus marks if it’s really velour from the ’70s, and in that case, please let us borrow it.)

7. What: Layering

The story: No, no – not layering like “a shirt with a sweater worn over top.” We mean layering for purposes only to not wear a see-through shirt. “Over top” like wearing a long tank top with lace at the bottom you then wear underneath a v-neck Henley that’s also long, but not so long as to cover the lace. And if you ever were to wear these separately, everybody would see your bra. And you know exactly what we’re talking about because we all lived it.

Does it still hold up: No. [Cue: choirs of angels singing.] We mean, layering does, but not like this. Not like this.

8. What: Dressy Capri Pants

The story: Is there any way we can describe this better? Probably not, but we’ll try: think dress pants, but worn at capri length, then worn with tall boots or heels, depending on the season. Basically, pretend they are pants. But short. Short pants. But dressy. Dressy short pants.

Do they still hold up: There’s a difference between cigarette pants (ankle length) and dressy capri pants, and one of the biggest is that we don’t see dressy capri pants around much anymore. And for good reason — we were all better than this.

9. What: Pointed Toe Heels

The story: 99% of the shoes on “Sex and the City” (which ended in 2004) are a perfect example of the shoe movement of the early-to-mid 2000s. However, high heels and overly pointed toes eventually evolved into a rounded style, then more retro – like the dress shoes of the ’50s and ’60s. But this isn’t about those decades – this is about Kirsten Dunst’s shoes from ten years ago.

Do they still hold up: Not so much. Pointed toe pumps will obviously never fade away, but the points so long they could’ve reached from your workplace to your home have somehow disappeared. (Or have they? Points that big don’t really go anywhere.)

10. What: “Boho” Chic

The story: “Boho” is strange because it’s arguably a movement, but in 2004 (and thanks to the likes of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), flowy, loose fitting, drop-waists, oversize belts, and slouchy boots became more than a feeling. Think oversize tank top and short denim skirt. (Or: think your favourite outfit in the mid-2000s.)

Does it still hold up: Like “preppy” or “rockabilly,” “boho” can’t ever be “out” – but the industry’s capitalization on it can be. Ultimately, anyone who wants to be “boho” can be “boho” – you might just not be able to find pieces easily at the mall. (At least 2004 styles: there’s always room for “boho” in the lexicon.)

Sheer Curtain Trends in 2014

Curtains are the simplest and one of the most effective ways to change the theme and outlook of your room or home. You can completely change your home interior by just getting some really cool curtains installed on your windows. These curtains can be of any design or color and will add to the outlook of the room. By choosing different colours and curtain styles, you can make your room look larger, more spacious, vibrant and classy. By using sheer fabric for these curtains, you can also make sure that your home is always illuminated by natural light during daytime, and saves you power utility bills. Besides that, you can choose a heavier fabric to insulate your home a little better and keep away the unwanted noise from entering your home.

Curtains serve a lot of functions and are very useful. They have become such a common part of the average household that most people do not even think about experimenting with their curtains in order to attain different decor related effects. Curtain styles such as grommet are really popular and will continue to dominate curtain trends for 2014 as well. These curtains are easy to install and do not require much maintenance. You can choose a washable fabric to cut down on the dry cleaning charges as well. Discounted curtains are a great option for those who are on a budget and want to redecorate their home. Installing these curtains will help your home become very classy and trendy, and the overall look of your home will improve drastically.

You can get a lot of variety when it comes to the selection of curtain fabric. While the sheer fabric is really popular these days, you can also pick thicker and more porous types of fabric. Thicker fabric generally has a higher thread count and do not allow any kind of light to pass through them. If you have windows with large glass panes, these curtains can ensure complete privacy for your home, and at the same time they also act as a mild audio suppressant and cut down on the ambient noise inside our home.

Regardless of the fabric you choose, you will get a lot of options in terms of colors. Colors can make a huge difference and drastically change the appearance of your rooms. Bright shades are ideal for living rooms where you are expected to entertain guests. Darker shades are generally preferred in bedrooms since they make the room darker and are helpful in creating an environment where you can sleep peacefully.

Grommet curtains are going to be very popular in 2014, and due to their versatility, and amazing looks, they are preferred by people with an active lifestyle. These curtains can be easily purchased on any popular online retailer shop that sells home decor items. If you are looking for a cost-effective solution, you can try purchasing them from stores that sell discounted curtains, and profit from low prices and great discounts.

3D DVD Blu-Ray Players

The future of home entertainment is with doubt going to be 3D. Experts predict that a quarter of televisions sold in 2014 will be in 3D. This shows a sign of incredible potential in the way millions of people view home entertainment.

3D TVs will not only revolutionise the way in which people watch live sport and satellite movies but also create a whole new breed of home DVD bluray players. Sony, for one, are already in final stages of developing a dedicated 3D DVD player capable of streaming high quality 3D visual affects directly to a 3D television.

Since the launch of the flat screen television the market place has grown massively with people rushing in their millions to purchase a thin, flat television. However, entertainment technology manufacturers are now using the arrival of 3D to create entirely new home entertainment systems and cinemas. The highly anticipated Samsung 3D Home Entertainment System will consist of three elements, combining to create a revolutionary home visual entertainment experience. The 3D high definition Samsung television will be matched with a bluray disc player and surround sound audio system. A complete system with the capabilities of competing with professional cinema experiences.

The purpose of a 3D blu-ray disc player is to provide a storage device which has an advanced capability in comparison to standard DVD formats. Capable of storing up eight times as much data. Providing a higher picture quality, larger audio files and extra content. Providing better entertainment and value for money than DVDs.

The arrival of high powered computer desktops, laptops and 3D disk drives will also enable us to watch 3D movies on devices other the television. Providing a completely flexible method of watching and enjoying 3D movies.

Fashion Trends in 2013

It is just couple of days left when we will be celebrating the New Year. While we are preparing to welcome the New Year, there are few things of year 2013 that we love to carry in the upcoming year. It was a memorable year for fashion and style. We have seen an array of trends. From bright emerald to monochromes, pastels to neon, we had so much to experiment with. The pop of colors in outfits, accessories and jewelry created a lasting impression. To ice the cake, the designs and patterns added a plethora of style, fashionistas enjoyed the entire year. Not to forget, our favorite celebrities contributed a lot to this.

Let’s look at the most popular trends of 2013, talk about the most inspiring celebrities and what will continue in the year 2014.

Color Magic:

Emerald was announced the color of year 2013. And the color lived up to the expectations with its lively, radiant and lush hues that exude elegance and beauty. From runways to red carpet and royal roads, emerald was prominently used everywhere. While the color captured much of the attention, another prominent color combination that received high five was black and white combo. Very retro and glamorous, monochrome was in great demand throughout the year.

However, pastel shades of pink, purple, yellow and green were also admired in clothing and jewelry, neon orange and pink were seen a lot in accessories.

Patterns and Textures:

Chevron, large plaids, herringbone, stripes, polka dots, mosaic prints and floral designs are the prominent patterns of the year. From home décor to designer dresses, handbags, footwear and jewelry, these patterns were everywhere. And they are likely to stay in year 2014.

Sequin, ruffles, faux fur, embroidery and lace work are most admirable and desired textures for designer dresses. Geometric patterns in jewelry and dresses were also a followed trend that will continue in the upcoming year.

Outfits:

Long gowns with high slits, cutouts and a lot of intricate weaving were popular this year. You must have seen a lot of embroidery and fine lace work on ball gowns! Black and ivory were the colors for dresses on red carpet. Geometric cutouts, lace detailing, peek-a-boo dresses, sequin embellishments were in trend throughout the year.

Jumpsuits, ruffle skirts, pencil skirts with loose blouse, peplum dresses and mermaid gowns with short and long train were seen everywhere in year 2013.

Jewelry:

Diamond with sapphire, emerald and ruby ruled this year. Vintage jewelry was the charm and retro designs mixed with modern looks were another hit style in jewelry. Celebrities were seen flaunting colored stones like amethyst, black onyx, opal, colored diamonds and diposide.

Jewelry styles like bib necklaces, gold cuffs, tassels, bold rings, snake jewelry, chokers, minimal pendants and statement hair accessories were some hot trends of the year.

Inspiring Celebrities:

It is hard to pick the most inspiring celebrity. There were many divas that were considered as the icon of fashion and glamor. From dresses and jewelry to makeup and hair do, different celebrities took the center stage for different reasons.

Out of the endless list, few fashion inspiring celebrities that were in lime light for their amazing and elegant style senses were Kate Middleton, Sandra Bullock, Dian Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence and Miranda Kerr.

Personally, we love Kate Middleton and her versatile style. She is a people’s princess. We love the royal for her thrifty style senses. It is now a common practice to see the duchess repeating her dresses often. But to mention, her style sense is so powerful and amazing that the recycled dress still manage to create a unique and lasting impact. Alike dresses, she often repeat her jewelry, handbags and footwear. She flaunts everything with all grace and elegance.

Additionally, her pregnancy and birth of her first child Prince George along with the recent hacking trail and announcement for the royal tour to Australia and New Zealand were few other reasons of her being in the news for all the year.

What Is the Cost of Beauty?

As technology and times change so do the many moving parts in the fashion and makeup worlds. The creation of new styles, blends, colors, organics, applications, all for women to look and feel beautiful in our daily lives. There is no question that is an important item. However, what is the cost of beauty?

Each year, worldwide over 100 Million animals die in the process of cosmeceutical testing. Translation? Simple, animals are subjected to lengthy agonizing processes of torture and experimentation in the building of new, sleeker, cosmetics. Most women have no idea the ramifications to animals when many companies adopt this type of testing for effectiveness, however, in the year 2014 we can no longer ignore the pain and suffering of animals for the benefit of beauty.

To better understand the process and the need for cruelty free makeup, let’s see just a few examples of the type of testing that currently happening to animals:

  • Dogs are force fed products to test the effects of toxicity upon ingestion.
  • Monkeys have chemicals slow dripped into their eyes so tissue analysis can be performed.

Just for a moment you need to consider the pain. Animals are NOT given any sort of sedative or pain killer. The overwhelming majority of these tests leave animals in a state of permanent disfigurement and pain, and obviously death. The question is, why do we do animal testing that we would never perform on ourselves? Could you imagine the outrage if 100 million humans had their rights violated to be treated as “lab rats?” It would never happen as we have a voice. Unfortunately for animals, they don’t have a voice in the process until now.

It is time for manufacturers and companies to take a stand and support cruelty free makeup. Makeup that the public wants without the harmful testing involved. Here is an amazing fact, the FDA the Food and Drug Administration does NOT require testing on animals of cosmeceuticals. Yet, companies still do? Why? There is no voice by the consumer expressing outrage of the unnecessary testing.

When you are shopping next time regardless if it is mascara, lip gloss, skin care, just know there is a 92% likelihood that an animal or animals have been tested on for that product. The voice today does not come in the form of petitions or social media. Although they are effective forms of voice. The most powerful voice for the animal and product is through money. Money spent on companies and products that ensure a cruelty free process. Purchase cosmetics from companies that produce cruelty free makeup like: e.l.f. NYX, Manic Panic, and Lime Crime. Assume for a moment that companies, who are testing on animals, saw a hit to their bottom-line by an average of 3% or higher, what would they hear? They would hear there is a different process entirely to achieve the product they want, the product you want, and keeping unnecessary animal testing at bay. You have the power of information and the power of voice. So what is the cost of beauty?
