Ask the Chics: Fashion in Academia


Last month, I asked you lovely folks to submit your questions about fashion in academia for guest post fodder. S, E, and A (from left to right above) of Academichic have graciously answered many of them, but since there were so many fabulous questions, a few had to be skipped. I’m only going to post a handful of answers here, and the remainder will go live on Academichic within the next few weeks, so stay tuned! If your question went unanswered, be sure to drop a line to the Chics or stop by their blog. They’d be happy to respond. read more

Makeup 101: How to Apply Foundation, Concealer, and Powder


OK, I’ve said it before, but I’ve gotta say it again: Sonja is my Makeup Mentor. She has literally taught me everything I know about cosmetics and how to utilize them. Now, I realize that I am still a major noob who can’t apply eyeshadow, but I am excited to report that that’s all about to change. Sonja has agreed to do a series of Makeup 101 post right here on Already Pretty!

Those of you who fear looking positively clownish on applying rouge will find her writing style accessible and engaging. Those of you who could apply a full face in your sleep will still be enchanted with this refresher course, guaranteed. This is the good stuff, my peeps, and I’m beyond excited that Sonja has agreed to share her expertise with us. read more
