Brooke Elliott has one of those delicious dual roles most actresses crave.
On Lifetime’s surprise hit “Drop Dead Diva,” Elliott plays Deb, a vapid, aspiring model who dies and hits the “return” button at heaven’s gate, only to come back to life in the body of the also recently deceased Jane Bingum, a shy, plus-size attorney.

By season’s end, she was learning to reconcile her beauty queen ways with her new frame and seriously brilliant mind.
StyleList caught up with Elliott, who is also an accomplished Broadway performer, to chat about her on- and off-screen style, as well as the show’s inspired message that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Read more … Keep reading »

Would you ever consider hitting the office, a business meeting, or just heading to the local supermarket without a swipe of your trusty lip gloss, concealer, or bronzer?
Quite frankly, some of us would rather go pantsless than leave the house without powdering our noses, but that’s exactly what The Beauty Bean website founder Alexis Wolfer, is aiming to change.
In the vein of Casual Friday, she’s spearheading Makeup Free Monday, a social campaign that challenges women to rethink their natural inner beauty and to stop apologizing for not wearing enough or perfectly-applied makeup. Read more … Keep reading »
It’s one thing to update your hairstyle regularly and keep it fresh and stylish. It’s another thing to change it every time you step foot in the salon.
Or is it?
We’ve known plenty of women over the years (celebrities especially) who are constantly changing their looks. Blonde one day, brunette the next. Long waves to cropped bob to extensions. So, curiously, we wanted to find out what’s going on inside the heads of these hair chameleons. In other words, when is continually changing your hairstyle about something more than just having fun with your locks? Read more … Keep reading »
Since the beginning of time, people have been slathering themselves in all sorts of bizarre substances in the hopes of becoming more beautiful.
Modern technology has exposed a lot of these concoctions to be worthless (or, in the case of Elizabethan-era women using lead paint to lighten their skin, very harmful) and also given us less disgusting alternatives (like synthetic dyes replacing bat poop in mascara).
And yet, the weirdness continues.
Here are some odd ingredients used in beauty products and treatments today. Read more … Keep reading »
