Five on 05: October

October came and went in the blink of an eye this year! Here are five beauty articles and sites I came across last month. You'll find everything from a courageous story to eye candy. Click away!

HOW GLAMSQUAD IS KILLING THE MAKEUP INDUSTRY

Have you ever heard of Glamsquad? Have you considered using the app to "hire" a makeup artist? Take a few minutes to read this article to better understand why hiring anyone through this new app is undercutting the entire industry. 

Pro tip: Just because Glamsquad hired them doesn't mean they are going to do the quality work that Glamsquad promises. Don't trust an app. Trust a makeup artist with examples of his/her work, a website, social media content, etc.

JESSICA ALBA & HONEST BEAUTY

Jessica Alba is a natural beauty, to say the least. She recently came out with a full beauty line with cosmetics and skincare. 

Check out the video included in the link to find out which products she can't go a day without and read the article to learn more about her rosy look.

SCLERODERMA: HIDING BEHIND MAKEUP

If you're going to click one link from this post choose this one. Lisa's story is one of heartbreak but also one of courage and honesty.

MIA CONNOR'S INSTAGRAM FEED

Mia Connor is one of my inspirations and idols. Her work is perfection in makeup form and I hope to one day study under her when she comes to the U.S. 

In the meantime, I'll just drool all over her Instagram feed. You should go check out the beauty on her feed too!

FACE PAINT BY LISA ELDRIDGE

If you read my last Five on 05 post you already know my love for all things Lisa Eldridge. She just came out with her first book, entitled Face Paint The Story Of Makeup. 

It's like a gorgeous visual of makeup throughout history, without timelines. 

Simply put, go pick it up!
