Lady Gaga Thanks The Photographers Who Told Her She Was Pretty

“Thank you to all of the photographers that, very early on in my career, thought that I was beautiful. Because there were many who didn’t understand my face. And didn’t understand my style. Or what I was trying to say. But there were, just a few of you, who loved it so much.”

A Love Letter To My Anastasia Brow Wiz

Dear Anastasia Brow Wiz (or as I fondly call you, Stasi),

We’ve only known each other for a few months now, but you’ve already saved me from moments of embarrassment, and I love you for that. You’ve helped my brows look as if they’re groomed, even though it’s been months since I’ve had them done. After having to grow out my brows twice already this year, I’m wary of letting someone new shape my brows. The only problem is my beloved eyebrow threader is an hour-long train ride away. And that’s not a trip I’m willing to take regularly … But that’s why I have you, Stasi. Keep reading »

Beauty Blunder: Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit And Blistex Don’t Mix

Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m obsessed with white teeth. I’ve tried several at-home whitening kits from affordable Crest Whitestrips to the pricier Go Smile. But only Zoom Whitening, which I used under the care of a dentist last year, has given me the pearly whites I desired. Of course the system that gives the best results is pricey, so when I received a Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit in a gift bag, I thought it’d be a cost-effective way to maintain my white smile.

Here’s something else you don’t know about me: I have crazy chapped lips. I started using Blistex recently because it prevents chapped skin from forming on my lips and makes peeling off any skin easy.

But what happened when I combined the Rembrandt teeth bleach with Blistex? A painful chemical burn. Ouch! Keep reading »

I'm Not Beautiful
But that's okay. Read More »

When legendary sex symbol Bo Derek appeared on Oprah a few months ago, Oprah kept pressing her to tell the world something profound about being a beautiful woman, and Bo kept brushing off the questions, saying, “It’s just about the way the bones line up.” That felt pretty profound to me. In our culture, the standard of beauty is narrow, and every day we face countless reminders of the ways we fall short. When it comes down it, though, our society’s definition of beauty is simple and unromantic: it’s high cheekbones and a button nose and long legs and a small waist and so on and so on. We can only congratulate or punish ourselves so many times for the way our bones line up. Here are 50 vastly different definitions of beauty that I know to be true… Keep reading »

Would You Wear: Peacock Eyelashes?

Peacock eyelashes — how whimsical and quirky, right? Or … how annoying and weird. Depends on how you look at it. I wish I could actually see what these lashes look like straight on, but sadly, Modcloth is instead only offering a dramatic glance at them. So tell us, would you wear these birdbrained lashes?

The Sad Truth: Pretty Girls Get Free Stuff

Carolyn Owlett pulled her hair back into a ponytail, threw on a frumpy skirt, and walked around London asking if she could have everything for free, from a bus ride to a piece of cake. Most people looked at her like she was crazy. Then she curled her hair into shiny ringlets, put on makeup, a tight dress, and high heels, and did the same thing. Most people looked at her … and then gave her whatever she wanted. The results of her one-woman experiment are depressing, but also fascinating to watch. Would you agree with her findings? Have you witnessed the ways society rewards conventionally beautiful women or experienced them firsthand? [Bright Hands Pictures via Vimeo]
