Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion Snoop is a pretty confident guy, and he has every reason to be. He’s super rich, super talented, super handsome, and famous as hell. Like, so famous. The famousest. There are a lot of things I like about Snoop, but I think what I like the most is that he’s got the mind to decide, “You know what, I’m gonna rock some French tips today,” and he does it. He just goes ahead and does it. Hey, Snoop: call me. [Instagram]
I’m pretty sure Rose Byrne could make clown makeup look ultra-glam, but that doesn’t mean that this simple contoured eye look is any less impressive. In a season filled with beauty influences on either side of the spectrum, from burgundy-lipped goth to luminous “is she even wearing makeup?” faces, this one lands safely in between. It might have something to do with the fact that Rose is in Australia right now, and I’m pretty sure it’s summer there. Still, this is a completely versatile, classic look that can be toned down for work or glammed up for play, whatever the season. Here’s how… Keep reading »
As a beauty and style editor, I get to try lots and lots of skincare products. You should see my bathroom at home (actually, you shouldn’t see my bathroom at home, it’s a hoarder’s paradise). There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but rarely do I find a product that’s legitimately great. Fresh’s new Lotus Youth Cream is that product. An anti-aging face cream with a propietary Super 7 Complex, the Lotus Youth Cream works to minimize the signs of aging and make your skin feel all dewy and fresh. There’s a bunch of good-for-your-skin stuff in it, like maca root extract, which apparently speeds up cell turnover; lotus flower extract, which defends against free radicals; and blue-green algae, which preserves collagen. That’s the long answer to why you’d want to use this stuff. The short answer is, it makes your skin look luminous and beautiful and radiant. [$42, Fresh]
Was anyone else surprised by some of the hair and makeup at the Golden Globes? For example: trend forecasters (this is a real job) have been calling for plenty of dark lips, particularly bordeaux and burgundy shades, this winter, but there were a sparse few to be found this past Sunday. Instead, our favorite celebs (and, yes, long-standing beauty icons) opted for fresher-faced looks, eluding any of the seasonal “trends” that were predicted. It was refreshing to see that the stars stayed true to their own personal sensibilities than just, “This is what’s hot for right now!” We did notice a few patterns popping up on the red carpet… Let’s take a look at the biggest 5 trends from the evening, and how to score them for ourselves.
I was playing with makeup at the Jane Iredale display the other day when I noticed a pretty purple eye shadow lurking behind the BB cream. I opened the tester and smeared a bit on the back of my hand, and lo and behold, it was the most perfect, shimmery lavender color I’d ever seen in my life. It was also $19, which is more than I usually spend on eye shadow. Still, the package claimed it was great for sensitive skin and eyes, and I’d heard rave reviews about Jane Iredale products, so I went for it. Read on to get the full scoop! Keep reading »
It’s not often that you can find so many celebs in the same room — which is why we’re taking this opportunity to ogle the amazing hair and makeup at the 2013 Golden Globes. Who got it right? And who got it tragically, tragically wrong? We’ve made our picks — now tell us yours in the comments!
Is it just us, or is January the most painfully slow month of the year? We’re feeling optimistic towards February, because after February comes March, and you know what March means — <i>spring</i>! But back to right here, right now; we’re trudging through the next couple of weeks, and we’re the first to admit that this winter is wreaking havoc on our complexions. Not only do we have to put up with the cold air and harsh wind outside, but once we’re safely contained indoors, we’ve got artificial heat sucking the life out of our skin. Not cool. If you’re in the same predicament, fear not — we rounded up 10 rich, revitalizing products that are guaranteed to get you looking springtime fresh, even in the dead of winter.
We live in a time where it’s an actual news story when a woman chooses to forgo makeup for a year, but that’s exactly what 38-year-old Phoebe Baker Hyde did. Baker Hyde was moved to go makeup free when she and her husband moved to Hong Kong, and she noticed that not only was she surrounded by appearance-obsessed women, but she too had fallen under the beauty industry’s spell.
“I had become a nervous, critical, angry, insecure woman,” she said. “I was not the woman or the role model I wanted to be, especially in front of a big-eyed baby daughter. I was at war with the world around me and at war with myself — the only self I had.” Keep reading »
Okay, fine, her skin looks amazing, but I really want to come at Tay Tay with some cotton swabs, makeup remover, and a blending brush right about now, because all that rust eyeshadow is making her look rather corpse-y. On the plus side, her breasteses look fab! Harry Styles, boy, eat your clam-loving heart out.
If money were no object, I would probably be covered in gold, Midas-style. Actually, much less like Midas and way more like this Indian man who had a shirt made for himself using $230,888 worth of solid gold. To attract a wife. As you do. I guess I’m not that materialistic, but I do like nice stuff, and what’s nicer than gold, am I right?
Soon, people who like gold as much as I do will be able to put it somewhere it’s never been before (sorry, gold-plated dildos have been a thing for a while): in their hair! And not even like just an accessory; it will actually go in the hair itself. And not only will it be a testament to how filthy rich you are, it will also turn your white hair dark brown, for good, or at least until it grows out. That’s what science says! Keep reading »
