“My hair is a battle. It’s an uphill, fine, baby-haired battle. It’s bone-straight and I have some pieces that my hairstylist stuck in my hair right now because if she didn’t you could see my ears through my hair right now. I mean, not to brag. There’s not much going on there. … I have weak nails, weak hair, weak skin and a weak bicep. What can I say?”
― When celebrities discuss their beauty routines, it’s usually in roundabout terms that come down to, “buy this new product I don’t actually use from this brand I’m being paid more than your gross life earnings per year to endorse!” But leave it to Emma Stone to be all at once candid (she says that she doesn’t wear lipstick on her own time because she tends to eat it), self-deprecatingly funny (she refers to her spotty skincare regimen as “very promiscuous”), and not shoving something in your face, all while schilling for Revlon. How in the world does she do it? [Glamour]
Given Lena Dunham‘s fairly recent induction into the Pixie Cut Club, which we presume involved a hazing at the hand of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, it was only a matter of time before some (fresh! Innovative! Cutting-edge!) photographer and makeup artist decided to give the girl behind “Girls” the full Twiggy. Dare we say she does it better than most? Dunham agreed: hairstylist Reanne White said of Lena’s look, “She was taking pictures of herself and she kept all the makeup to go out that night.” Looking good, Hannah Horvath!

I’m pretty stoked about “Les Misérables,” mostly because I practically inhaled the book as a precocious 13-year-old but never got the chance to catch it on Broadway. I cry every time the trailer comes on so I should probably, definitely go see it alone. Still, we were hoping that Anne Hathaway, what with her angling for a 2013 Oscar nom for her role as ill-fated prostitute Fantine, would fare slightly better on the red carpet at the film’s world premiere.

Say what you will about Kim Kardashian, but I’ll forever back her on one thing: the girl’s makeup is always on point. Whether she’s rocking the family trademark super-smoky eye and nude gloss, or keeping it low-key with just mascara and flawless skin, Kim’s beauty routine has inarguably got it going on. Check out our top seven picks of her many makeup looks in the gallery above! Keep reading »
“Holiday makeup” implies many a thing. It’s festive! It’s fancy! It’s … probably a little over the top. You could go the obvious route, with red and green and tons of sparkle and, like, a wreath or pine needles in your hair, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Here, Leighton Meester shows us the perfect way to bridge the gap between classic and festive without throwing an impromptu Christmas party on your face. Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on here and break it down real simple, after the jump … Keep reading »
I just don’t get it, SJP. Aren’t you supposed to be, like, a fashion thing? I’m cool with the dress, even though it looks kind of like a Thanksgiving tablecloth, but paired with snakeskin pumps in Lisa Frank’s favorite colors and a blue velvet purse, I can’t help but feel like even Carrie Bradshaw would get all judgy on this one. This isn’t a look, it’s just like, items.
Did Nia Vardalos of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” non-fame (god, did I love that movie) always have a very serious case of crazy eyes, or is this a new development? Discuss.
As a beauty product enthusiast (one might also say “hoarder,” if one were being less kind), lipstick is one of my very favorite things. At any given moment I have a bare minimum of 5 tubes rattling around in my handbag… and another 500 at home. When I buy a new one, (which I do, often) I consider the color, the texture, the packaging, the longevity of the formula, and sometimes, let’s be honest, just how luxurious it looks and feels. What I am definitely not thinking about, however, is what goes into it. Keep reading »
I went to Hebrew school for three years, and every single second of it was unequivocally lame. I was, of course, really terribly behaved, because that’s the family legacy. (My dad was ejected from the same establishment for riding a bike through the halls 30+ years earlier.) But maybe if I had Rabbi Yael Buechler as a teacher, I would have retained more from the experience than the Shabbat Candle Lighting prayer and a latent love of coconut macaroons. The 26-year-old Jewish day school teacher captured media attention last year for her unorthodox religious teaching methods. Read: manicures. Buechler started the Midrash Manicures (referring to “the deep textual interpretation of the Bible, with every word examined for meaning”) club at Solomon Schechter School of Westchester, where she teaches sixth, seventh, and eighth grade girls how to paint their nails in designs inspired by weekly Torah portions.
