While adopting a facial serum can seem intimidating because of its sometimes hefty price tag, the long list of skincare benefits can make it worth it. Here’s the FORA-1-1 on face serums.

Cannabis-Infused Beauty Products

The beauty industry is all about *buzzy* new ingredients, so the recent boom of cannabis-infused products comes as no surprise. Weed, marijuana, Mary Jane, grass, pot, cannabis—whatever you call it, chances are you’ve never considered it something that should be a part of your skincare routine (until now).

Challenging the notion that cannabis only belongs in a bong, beauty companies have recently started using the plant for its skincare benefits. Here’s the FORA-1-1 on cannabis-infused beauty products.

Clean Beauty Brands We Love

The green beauty movement exploded onto the scene a couple years ago and it’s clear it’s here to stay. If you haven’t already added a few clean beauty products to your skincare regime, you’ve probably at least thought about going green once or twice.

So what does it mean if a product has a “clean” stamp of approval? Simply put, it means it’s created without ingredients known or thought to be harmful. Of course, just like regular beauty products, not all clean beauty is created equal. Here’s a buying guide to some of our faves!

Makeup Brands That Are Showing Their Pride This Month

Whether it’s a smokey eye, a sharp contour, or a bold lip, makeup has always been tied to self identity, self expression, and individuality. These factors play into promoting self-confidence and play by one of the most important rules of the industry; if you got it, flaunt it.

Pride Edition: What’s Inside Tynomi Banks’ Bag?

As a performer, drag queen Tynomi Banks has to be ready for anything at a moment’s notice– so she doesn’t just carry a bag, she brings with her a small luggage packed with all the must-have’s of a queen. And with Pride events happening across the city all month long, her bag is full of glitter, fun accessories, extra pantyhose, and more for the festivities!

As for what we should have in our bags for Pride, Tynomi says dry shampoo and sunscreen are a must: “If you’re going to the parade it’s HOT—keep your hair looking fresh with a good dry shampoo [like] Sexy Hair. Also, make sure you’ve got sunscreen in your bag. I like Goddess Garden, it’s natural, non-greasy, and smells like heaven.”

We recently had the chance to catch up with Tynomi and ask her the age-old question… “What’s inside your bag?” Scroll through some the ~essentials~ in her bag for Pride below.
