'The geniuses behind ColourPop Cosmetics and Fourth Ray Beauty have done it again, people! This time around, though they've moved on from makeup and skincare and focused on the body, dreaming up a new brand with a particularly shimmery debut product. If you've heard the news and are wondering where to buy SOL Body's new Shimmering Body Oils , I totally understand why you might be unsure. After all, the brand has no website, and yet the products are online exclusives. What gives? Read on to learn exactly how to snag SOL Body now that the brand has officially gone live, so you can make sure you get your glowy goods before they sell out. SEED Beauty knows a thing or two about launching great beauty brands, from the ber-affordable ColourPop to Fourth Ray Beauty , ColourPop's sister skincare brand. Rather than create a body care product line within either of the aforementioned brands, SEED Beauty chose instead to create an entirely new brand dedicated to all things body, and thus, SOL Body was born. The brand's first drop is an instant must-have for summer, as pretty much everyone is dying to amp up their glow this season. The Shimmering Body Oils are here, and they couldn't be more gorgeous: Swoon. Glitzy, shimmery goodness in a dry oil formula? Count me in. Products like Tom Ford's Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil and Fenty Beauty's Body Lava were some of the first to put this kind of formula on the map, and since then, a billion brands have put their own spin on it. What makes SOL Body's version different? For starters, there are four distinct shades, so users can select the undertone of their glow: Fair and light skin tones will most likely graviate towards \'Platinum,\' an ivory gold with silver and gold pearls, and \'Soft Gold\' a champagne gold with sliver and gold pearl, while medium to deep skin tones will suit \'Warm Gold\'a gold with silver, gold, and pink pearls, and \'Bronze,\' a bronze with copper and gold pearls. Oh, yeah, they're also only $15 apiece, making them way cheaper than most competitor products: Plus they're vegan and cruelty-free, plus they're made in the USA, plus they're incredible. Need I go on? Now, let's talk about how to snag a bottle for yourself. Even though SOL Body is its own brand, it's sold exclusively on the ColourPop website , meaning you'll need to head over there to cop some glow. TBH, that means you can totally justify buying a few ColourPop goodies at the same time, since you're aleady placing an order. Love that! Might I suggest snagging something from the California Love Collection when you order? After all, what's a glowy bod without an equally-bronzy eye? There's no word yet on what SOL Body will drop next, but it's safe to say these Shimmering Body Oils are a strong debut. If you agree, don't forget to shop the new line via ColourPop's site now.'

'A few weeks after my first haircut in years a chic shag with lots and lots of layers I got the urge to update my highlights, too. Christine Thompson, my colorist and the founder of Spoke & Weal, noticed the fresh chop as soon as I sat down in her salon chair because apparently, thanks to those new layers, my balayage looked all kinds of wrong. (Whoops.) Thankfully, Thompson fixed me up in a few hours and let me pick her brain about cut and color protocol: Should you have your hair cut or colored first? Should you have both done at the same time? Should your stylist and colorist be working together towards one cohesive look? I prefer having the hair cut first, because then you can color the haircut exactly how it needs to be colored, Thompson tells The Zoe Report. This technique kind of goes against the grain of the salon world. Usually a lot of [stylists] wet cut; so they color the hair when its dry, then shampoo it, then cut the hair after, the colorist explains. But while that order may be more efficient for salons, its not necessarily in the best interest of your hair. For one, processing hair thats about to get the chop is a waste of time, energy, bleach, and dye. Secondly, modern color tends to be dynamic gone is the one-shade-all-over approach. At one point, blonde pieces of hair were the same color blonde going all the way up to the scalp, Thompson says. Now, on one piece of hair you might have three or four different shades of blonde. This method makes for natural-looking color and allows clients to go longer in between touch-ups ; its also highly nuanced and requires thoughtful placement on the part of the colorist. Taking a pair of cutting shears to that kind of precision is truly a crime against good hair. Particularly for balayage, thats a situation where sometimes people end up getting the bright bits cut off [if they do color first], Thompson says which is exactly what happened to me. Balayage highlights are strategically placed based on where the sun might naturally hit and lighten the hair; and by cutting layers into the existing pattern, I interrupted the flow of the color. The result? Blocky, fake-looking highlights. (Until Thompson saved me, that is.) This really comes into play for those who have highlighted, balayage, or ombr hair and bangs. A too-eager trim could erase all traces of color from your fringe; but luckily, Thompson has a fix for that, too. I'll actually do a progressive technique to keep the color fresh on the fringe area, because I know its going to be growing out and getting cut, she says. Especially with the Birkin bang situation that everyone is wearing, I do prefer aesthetically if its tipped with a little bit of light. To avoid awkward trims, the colorist works a couple different levels of lightness into the bangs. The first bang trim , maybe half of that gets cut off, Thompson says. Then, by the second or third bang trim, theyre probably going to have to reset the color. Fringe lovers, take note (and pass the note onto your colorist). At Thompsons Spoke & Weal salon which has eight locations across the country, including New York City, Chicago, and a newly renovated space in Los Angeles stylists and colorists prevent problems like broken balayage or wonky bangs from happening in the first place by taking a collaborative approach to each clients cut and color, and doing both on the same day. I dont start coloring until I know where the cut is going, Thompsons says. Were really designing the color around the texture and how theyre going to be styling it. Sadly, not everyone will be able to have Thompson treat their hair with such loving care (she's a little busy with her high-profile clients, like beauty influencer Nam Vo and iconic model Pat Cleveland), but she has a few words of wisdom youll find useful no matter where you get your hair done. Her top recommendation? Find a salon that offers top-notch cuts and colors , and work with a two-person team to get the job done right. If thats not an option for example, if you already have a stylist and colorist you love, and they work out of different salons always opt to get your hair cut first, then bleached, dyed, or highlighted (preferably, within a few days of each other). As Thompson says, The cuts going to make the color.'

Illustrative image (Source: VNA) Hanoi (VNA) – Local garment producers have so far received less order than 2018 and the shortage of orders is becoming more common, heard a press conference held by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS)
'Illustrative image (Source: VNA) Hanoi (VNA) – Local garment producers have so far received less order than 2018 and the shortage of orders is becoming more common, heard a press conference held by the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS) in Hanoi on July 19. The number of orders in the first half of 2019 was just equivalent to 70 percent of the figure in the same period last year, said VITAS Vice President Truong Van Cam. As the apparel industry grew by less than 9 percent by the end of June, it must expand 11 – 12 percent for the remaining months to fulfill the goal of earning 40 billion USD from exports this year. Other major textile and garment producers like India and Indonesia are facing a similar situation as demands from customers are getting higher while pressure to cut cost and higher trade barriers, such as import duties or quality inspection are also taking a toll on them, he explained, saying that Vietnamese firms are no exception. Foreign countries have taken several measures to support their domestic exporters, for example, cutting corporate income tax and duties on imported apparel materials, and devaluing their currencies, making it more difficult for Vietnamese enterprises to compete with, Cam added. He hoped that the situation would improve in the last six months as it is normally the time for high-value orders for products like jackets, suits and winter sportswear. Nguyen Thi Hong Anh, VITAS Vice Secretary General, said to attract more orders, local producers must strictly comply with requirements of buyers and protect workers’ rights. According to the VITAS, the textile and garment industry earned approximately 18 billion USD from exports in the first half of 2019, up 8.61 percent year on year. The figure included 14.02 billion USD worth of clothing and 1.02 billion USD worth of fabrics, up 8.71 percent and 29.9 percent, respectively. The US remained the biggest buyer who imported 7.22 billion USD worth of textile and garment products, up 12.84 percent from a year earlier. It was followed by member states of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) (2.57 billion USD, up 11.13 percent), the European Union (2.05 billion USD, up 10.46 percent), and the Republic of Korea (1.37 percent, up 5.59 percent).–VNA'

'For many years, I considered thick, dramatic mascara to be my thing . No look was complete without two (or seven) coats of the stuff, and I regularly paid more than $20 per tube without blinking an eye no pun intended. So, if you would've told me back then that one of Target's July 2019 beauty arrivals would be my holy grail mascara, I would've guessed you were 100 percent wrong. While I often supplemented prestige mascaras with drugstore buys (my lashes were coated ), I never thought I'd find a formula for under $10 that could transform my tiny, pin-straight lashes. Enter Maybelline's $5.99 Snapscara Washable Mascara . I'll admit it, I first picked it up after reading about the mascara's cult following ; the fact that the wax-free formula washes off with just a few splashes of water and a cotton round was secondary to how it'd make my lashes look. However, although the mascara quickly became my everyday go-to it somehow gives my short lashes a natural, extension-like look the ease of removal is my favorite part. Whereas I used to spend minutes scrubbing at my eye makeup, Maybelline's Snapscara rinses off in seconds. And bringing in a cult mascara is just one step in Target's path toward rapidly elevating its beauty selection . While adding a Maybelline fan favorite to its shelves may not be anything new for the retailer, beauty fans probably have noticed just how detailed Target's cosmetic category now is. Most recently, Target introduced the Target Clean icon to its online and in-store beauty sections which means that the Target Clean-labeled cosmetics are made without ingredients like phthalates, parabens, and select sulfates. (You can read all of Target Clean's barred beauty ingredients on Target's website .) So, as you browse all the new beauty arrivals at Target, be prepared to see established cult favorites and intriguing new Target Clean brands like the zero-waste beauty brand Ethique . Wondering which product will be your new holy grail, though? Keep on scrolling. Eight beauty products recently added to Target's lineup are below including the washable Maybelline mascara worthy of a spot in your very own collection. Glycolic Acid Body Scrub Pro tip: You can use glycolic acid to exfoliate *everywhere* not just your face. Newly added to Target's lineup, this scrub was formulated to whisk away dry patches (and skin bumps caused by keratosis pilaris). SLMD Skincare Eco-Friendly Heali Kiwi Shampoo Bar For Touchy Scalps Ethique's zero-waste beauty products just hit Target shelves July 15. From hair care to skin care, each product is wrapped up in fully compostable packaging. Ethique Snapscara Washable Mascara Half the joy from Maybelline's Snapscara comes from how long and delicate it makes your lashes look. The other half? How easy it washes off once it's time to hit the hay. Maybelline Ginger Kombucha + Vitamin D Chill Mist Sweet Chef's new summer-friendly mist is like a cool glass of kombucha for your face: Its bacteria- and oil-fighting formula mixes the probiotic-rich drink with cucumber, turmeric, and zesty ginger. Sweet Chef Glowing + Retexturized Booty-Ful Paper Mask This new release from drugstore superhero Yes To lets you get in on the butt mask trend which yes, is a thing without spending more than $5. Yes To Microfiber Tinted Brow Mousse Inspired by celebrity brow stylist Tonya Crooks, the new brand Arches & Halos features promising innovations like this water-resistant brow \'mousse\', which uses microfibers to thicken the appearance of your natural brows. Arches & Halos Texturizing Putty Sure, this Texturizing Putty may hail from the men's shaving brand Harry's; however, its non-greasy, matte hold may be just the thing for your pixie cut or unruly flyaways. And at just $11.99, its price is hard to beat, too. Harry's Hero Cosmetics Duo Mighty Patch's Hero Cosmetics Duo has any pimples covered, day and night.

'Picture this: Its 98 degrees outside, and you're rushing to happy hour before the clock strikes 8.. and naturally, you can't help but wipe the sweat from your brow. Your makeup melts (despite the layers of setting spray you misted on), but your arches stay intact all because of a waterproof eyebrow pencil that withstands the elements. \'A good brow pencil is essential to your beauty routine because brows bring balance and proportion to the face and eyes,\' Jared Bailey, Benefit Cosmetics' Global brow expert , tells The Zoe Report. \'Even the slightest tweaks to your brows can create a slimming or rounding effect for your face shape.\' Bailey notes that natural-looking texture and fullness are really in right now, and the best way to achieve this look is to find a microlining brow pencil that has a balanced formula thats not too hard or too soft. When it comes to brows, it's important to note that \'everyone isnt blessed with eyebrow hair that is naturally thick or dark in pigment, celebrity brow artist Giselle Soto says. They may have plenty of hair in the area, but because the hair lacks the thickness and boldness from the dark color, itll automatically make their eyebrows appear sparse. Thats where a great eyebrow pencil comes in. So to get a strong arch, which is steadily holding the title for the top brow trend this summer, building fullness is key. Celebrity makeup artist Andrea Tiller notes that first and foremost, starting with the right products is the first step to creating brow thickness. If you have thinner brows, brush them up with a spoolie and either use a brow pencil or brow ink pen to mimic hairlike strokes until you reach your desired brow strength. The more you take your time, the more natural they will look at the end. Dont forget to blend in your pigment with that same spoolie after you are finished with the pencil for the most natural results. Now, if your brows are already full or even unkempt, creating a strong brow requires a lot less effort. Usually unkept brows are the best to create a strong brow because you have more hair to work with to create the desired and trendy full brow everyone wants, Tiller says. All you need to do is tweeze out the strays that really don't belong including any unibrow action and work with the shape. If you have super long brow hairs, then I would take a spoolie and brush them straight up and trim with small scissors. Don't forget to go over the brows with a waterproof pencil,\' she adds. Ahead, shop seven waterproof pencils to get your thickest brows that are pro-proof to stay on all day. Brow Flick + Boy Brow Duo Tiller recommends this pencil and gel duo because it's easy to use. \'It's like a fine felt pen, but it mimics brow hair.\' Glossier Precisely My Brow Eyebrow Pencil Soto recommends this pencil by Benefit Cosmetics because the fine tip allows you to mimic hair-like strokes for a natural finish. Benefit Cosmetics Liquid Brow Liner This waterproof brow liner is also great for mimicking brow hairs. Tiller also likes the vast color ranges that the pencil comes in. Amaterasu - Geisha Ink Brow Sculptor This pencil is \'foolproof and you can use it to create a fast brow that looks great,\' Tiller notes. Tom Ford Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil Goof Proof offers 12 hours of waterproof wear. I love Goof Proof because its functional and easy to use for everyone from a beauty novice to a makeup maven you literally cant goof it up! Both pencils are available in 12 shades, the most extensive range in the industry!\' Bailey says. Benefit Cosmetics Stay Put Brow Sculpting Micro Pencil Bailey recommends using a microlining brow pencil that isn't too light or dark to keep brows as natural as possible. This formula stays put on eyebrows, and the defined pencil tip outlines your shape to enhance the brows features. Milani Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner Lastly, this one is a personal favorite. It doesn't end up all over my face and adds just the right amount of color to my already full brows. I like that the formula is soft and bold and that the pencil doesn't feel like it's scraping my skin off when I apply it. Thrive Causemetics'
