...but are there any "rules" I have to follow when writing these types of articles? I love researching and I usually can find exactly what I'm looking for when I put enough time and effort into my work. Does anyone have any pointers?

I don't understand what you mean by "rules." Care to explain what it is your after?

Oops, my bad. I wasn't clear enough.

I guess what I mean is, I want to sound "fresh", if that's even possible in the world of fashion! :) True, other people on Helium also write fashion articles but I try to use real products that have been used by either myself or other people. For example, for a certain eyelash curler, I asked users in a beauty forum if they had used it and everyone that posted had wonderful experiences. In addition, I Googled it and used that information as a source in my article for credibility.

Now for something like that, is there anything that I should be aware of? I know about plagiarism and all that but is there anything else?
