Earth Month Beauty: 5 Natural Face Cleansers For Every Skin Type

As you may or may not already know (you probably do), April is Earth Month, which means it’s prime time to educate yourself about all things good and green. Switching to natural beauty products, particularly skincare (I’m not about to part with my heavy-duty, chemical-laden concealer), can be crazy beneficial to all skin types — sulfates in facial cleansers are drying, irritating, and can potentially cause cancer. Cool! Unfortunately, products with better ingredients often translate to more expensive products, and there are so many on the market now that it can be difficult to choose the right one for you. These 5 natural, sulfate-free facial cleansers, which range from $11 to $46, are all tested and true, and there’s bound to be one that suits your skin type and routine… Keep reading »

Roberto Cavalli Has Beef With Karl Lagerfeld Over His Personal Style

Serious question: does Karl Lagerfeld owe his notoriety more to his fashion design prowess or his very polarizing public persona? I’d say it’s a toss-up, but regardless, as far as Fashion People Fame Levels go, he ranks at the top of the charts. The delightfully bizarre Roberto Cavalli may be finding himself slightly envious of Karl’s larger-than-life media presence, because the eccentric Italian designer is throwing some major shade at the Chanel head honcho. He said of Lagerfeld in a recent interview, “Just because you are an artist you don’t have to dress like that. … He looks ridiculous.”

Interestingly, I don’t think they dress all that differently aside from the obvious disparity, which is that Roberto (at left) invariably appears to have bathed in a vat of self-tanner while Karl is pretty much white all over. Also, the former is rarely spotted in a fully-buttoned shirt. As you do! Listen, I say we settle the score with a fashion face-off… and I don’t mean Chanel vs. Cavalli. Let’s go, boys! (This will never happen.) [StyleBistro]

Here are some things that stoners might need: Netflix Instant (specifically, every season of “Law & Order: SVU”), a soft blanket, assorted snacks, a nap, a dog to pet, definitely a glass of water. But … a stoner awards ceremony? Isn’t that a little … ambitious? I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Alas, the weird world of Reddit and its stoner subreddit, r/trees, has decided to inaugurate The Munchies, “an annual feel good event for 4/20.” No word yet on what the categories will entail, but they’ll all be user-submitted and then voted upon. And if you have any questions about this event’s legitimacy, consider this: the whole thing is endorsed by legendary pothead Snoop Dogg Lion himself, and he’ll even be there to announce the winners by video on — yup — 4/20. I’ll be tuning in… that is, if I’m not too faded to remember. [Betabeat] [Photo of a guy smoking weed from Shutterstock]

Style Stealer: Elizabeth Olsen Is Cool-Girl Chic

Oh, Elizabeth Olsen, you’re so perfect. You’re the most perfect-est Olsen of all time. I may have been a member of the mail-order Mary Kate and Ashley Fan Club circa 2000, but if they had a mail-order fan club for you in 2013, I would join it right now. Right now! Don’t worry, they didn’t even send anything good, just a 9-by-13 black and white photo from time to time. Kind of creepy, come to think of it. Anyway, this outfit is perfect, just like everything else Elizabeth does. Let’s steal it, shall we? Keep reading »

April 10: What Are We Wearing Today?

Oh, hello! It’s another very nice day in New York City, and we’re all taking advantage of it the best we can. Read: as little clothing as possible. Also, I’ve got bright pink lipstick on, which is sort of my spring/summer look. Plus yesterday’s eyeliner, but that is neither here nor there. Come see what we’re wearing on this spring day…

April 9: What Are We Wearing Today?

Finally, it’s prime street harassment season! Seriously, you would think these people had never seen a woman in a dress before. Actually, when I went out to get lunch today, I dodged an outstretched hand that I suspect was intended for my breast. ANYWAY. I am bare-legged and it is thrilling, I feel so wild and free! Just kidding, I am way too neurotic for that shit. Come see what we’re wearing on this glorious day…

How frequently do you clean your makeup brushes? If you feel at all ashamed about your answer to that question, stop, because mine is worse. That’s right: despite applying makeup almost daily, using various brushes to do so, and spending approximately one-third of my overall life hours thus far fretting over the quality of my skin, I wash my brushes, on average, never. Sure, maybe I’ll do it half-heartedly once every few (read: six) months, but aside from that… nope. I rule! But since it’s come time to honor all things Spring Cleaning, I’ve decided to swallow my laziness whole and work on getting in the habit of taking care of my belongings. Especially ones as grime-accumulating and bacteria-breeding as makeup brushes. Here’s a super-easy 3-step program for cleaning out those bristles once and for all, or at least just for the next 2-4 weeks. Keep reading »

Kourtney Kardashian Calls Scott Disick Out For Borrowing Her Makeup

"Tinted moisturizer is a good thing to use."

Cover boy, Lord, American Psycho — Scott Disick is a man of many wonders. He is almost single-handedly responsible for everything Good and Hilarious to happen on all things “Kardashian” as of late insofar as he is uncompromisingly ridiculous and it brings me pure joy. In the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” Kourtney calls Scott out on borrowing what appears to be her Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Kim also announces she’s pregnant, but whatever. Scott’s makeup hoarding (and feigning cluelessness!) is far and away the highlight of this episode, along with Kourtney’s trademark deadpan, totally Xanaxed-out delivery as she sneakily confirms that Scott is, indeed, borrowing her beauty products. So! When are they announcing his spin-off? Mama Kris would never approve of that, but I guarantee viewers would be far more likely to tune in to “The Scott Show” than “Kendall & Kylie’s Boring Whatever.” [BuzzFeed]
