Blue mask to de-stress your face

Welcome to Want/Need, a daily roundup of the things HelloGiggles’ Editorial Director and Deputy Editor are madly in love with, and what we — you guessed it — WANT/NEED. Our recommendations will include (but are not limited to) the perfect sandal, mom jeans you should totally wear to the office, pretty water bottles, and lipsticks that will make you feel unstoppable. Check back every day for new picks and deals!

Well, now that Madewell sells beauty products, consider my checking account done for. Obvs they carry the brand French Girl, but I’m currently all about this clarity mask by Herbivore Botanicals. It’s been a stressful week and it’s showing on my face, wahh!

Everlane now has cashmere sweatshirts, and they are the epitome of cool and comfortable. Plus, they make me feel like the poet I wanted to be when I went to poetry grad school.

Now you can never lose your charger!

While my skin care routine is fairly involved, my makeup sitch is much more relaxed. I don’t like to wear too much product other than under eye concealer, mascara and lipstick. But the one “extra” product I rely on is a highlighter. I’m loving the rose quartz luminizer from Kora Organics. It’s hydrating, and it gives me that perfect glow that looks natural and effortless. Hey, if Miranda Kerr loves it, then it’s gotta be good.

I’d pair this striped top with a pair of dark wash jeans for the perfect off-duty outfit.

Here’s where you can buy it

Sometimes, the key to getting dressed in the morning is to ask yourself how you want to feel. Whether it’s powerful, loving, or even just plain confident, clothing can help you tune in to yourself. One of our favorite ways to dress like the queen of hearts we are is to wear pink, and plenty of it. And when it’s done in velvet? All the better. For inspiration, we have Kristen Bell’s pink velvet Rebecca Taylor top, which is the staple we need in our closets ASAP.

Kristen wore an all-over pink look that’s a rose quartz daydream.

Why settle for either color or texture when you can have both?! We love that Kristen wore this velvet top, complete with puffy shoulders and a keyhole cutout, with pink leather Rebecca Taylor trousers and a coral Staud velvet bag. More is more, and that’s totally chic; just take it from Kristen!

Kristen posted the outfit to her Instagram, with a caption explaining how she’s finished up the press tour for A Bad Moms Christmas.

We love this look because it’s one a good or bad mom could wear, and aren’t we each a little of both anyway? With her short blonde hair in loose waves, pink lips, and glowy skin, this is an easy look that can carry itself. Even if you pair with some matching lipstick, you’re still sure to be as dazzling as a rose.
