Love it. Hate it. No matter how you feel about neon, it’s here to stay. From dressing it up, to dressing it down, this cheery trend is easy to style. Incorporate just one item, or go all out, pairing a bright, bold color with a neutral such as black, white or nude will always be chic.
Just starting out in the fashion world of shocking colors? Wear your normal gear, and work in a bright lip, or graphic eye liner.
No matter how you rock it, you’re going to love it.

The season is almost upon us where all we want is to be golden goddesses. But, we all know how the sun ages us and just isn’t good [no matter how great it makes us look]. Above is the most simple of tutorials showing how easy it is to be bronzed, faux-naturally, darlin’.

It’s hard to part ways with our favorite cosmetic and beauty items, even when we know that they’re past their prime. Often the excuse is used that “we don’t know when they expire.” Never wanting to rain on your pretty parade, the Team at Damone Roberts does want you to always be putting your best foot forward, and that includes making sure you’re only using fresh and healthy products. You wouldn’t eat expired food out of your refrigerator just because it’s your favorite meal, right? RIGHT?
Above is a super easy timeline for product life. Take a look and think long and hard about when you really bought that lipstick.
[But if you keep a few of your absolutely-can’t -live-withouts, we won’t tell, because we probably will, too.]
Get ready to want to High 5 yourself [and have everyone want to High 5 you!]
Our hands often get overlooked when it comes to our beauty regimens. Which is a shame since our hands do so much for us— brush hair, clean bath tubs, give comfort— so let’s thank and pamper them with this amazing DIY hand scrub from TBD.
Run to your kitchen/bathroom and grab the following:
- 1/4 cup coarse sugar [brown sugar works, too]
- 1/2 lemon
- 2 tbsp coconut oil [Trader Joe’s has a great tub of it, as do most stores now]
- A touch of your favorite, skin benefiting oil [jojoba, argan, vitamin e, etc.]
Throw these simple ingredients in a bowl and mix mix mix until you have a delightfully creamy consistency. Now scrub your hands for 2 minutes and rinse [no soap!]. Let the skin feeding ingredients really soak into your manos. Pat dry and voila! Be obsessed with your gorgeous helpers.
Got leftovers? Put some plastic wrap over the bowl and keep in the fridge to use again in a few days. Feeling the need to spread the silky feeling elsewhere? Give your feet treat with this scrub!
Magazine covers, that is! June is the month where 3 of Damone’s most stunning clients [Lauren London on Jet, Robert Downey Jr. on GQ, and Gwyneth Paltrow on People] grace the glossies. Now it’s YOUR chance to experience the celebrity life. We want to pamper you with Damone’s award winning product, the original Brow Gel, and a chance to be featured on Damone’s blog!
The rules are simple:
- Pick up one of the three covers featured above.
- Turn your friend into a paparazzo and have a picture snapped of you reading your magazine choice in a fun, creative way, in an exotic location, anywhere and anyhow!

We’ll pick the crème de la crème and gift the gels to those lucky favorites!

Those dull, dry chapped lips…a thing of the past! We found this wonderful DIY lip treatment, that will bring back the “kiss” for your kissable lips and all you have to do is head over to your kitchen and/or grocery store, mix these ingredients and then tackle “the chap”…head on. Here are two solutions, depending on how bad the damage is. If only there were chocolate in them…
Pretty Sweet (Lightweight Formula)
One teaspoon Brown Sugar
One teaspoon Honey
One teaspoon Olive Oil or Petroleum Jelly
Mix the brown sugar and honey together to create a paste and thickly coat your lips. Leave it on for a few minutes then start gently scrubbing with your finger until all the dead skin has been buffed off. Immediately dab on olive oil or lip balm to moisturize.
Oh So Coco (Extra Moisture Formula)
One teaspoon Sea Salt
One teaspoon Coconut Butter or Coconut Oil (available at your local health food store)
Mix the two together then pat on your lips and gently scrub in circular motion until it’s as smooth as a baby’s…
Now your lipstick/gloss will glide on as it should! Repeat daily until you feel your old pout is back.
Tired of your eyeliner not lasting the entire day and seeping down the corners of your eyes? We love this tip! Keep your waterline eyeliner from running or disappearing during the day.
Lock in your pencil with shadow and you’ll find your liner will last SO much longer.
