As a card-carrying Lazy Person, I’m always in search of the best multitasking beauty products to cut a minute or two out of my routine. Some mornings I can manage a full-on primer, foundation, concealer, and powder process, but other days (like Mondays!) I can be found pleading to the makeup gods for something far more efficient. If it can actually make me look better than usual — brighter-eyed, more awake, more put-together — well, then that’s just the icing on the complexion cake. Veil Cosmetics is brand-new to the market, but their star product, Illuminating Complexion Fix, has already got competitors shaking in their boots. With natural soothing ingredients fueled by skincare treatment philosophies, this weightless formula can be applied over or (actually, I’ve done it) in lieu of foundation for the most luminous, essentially perfect skin humanly possible in seconds flat. In short: it’s wonderful. [$36, Veil Cosmetics]

Makeup Bag: 8 Essential Products For Holding On To Summer All Year Long

I hate to admit it, but the calendar doesn’t lie: September is approaching, and fast. It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for spring, which turned out to be practically nonexistent, before summer came on hot and heavy. I may be in the minority here, but I would take a gloriously sunny, breezy late-August or early-September day over the oppressive humidity of July. Don’t get me wrong — that doesn’t mean I’m not feeling the universal sadness that comes with the end of the summer, but I’m definitely looking forward to cooler, more jeans-appropriate weather. For those of you who take the end of the season just a little bit harder than I, I understand, and to make things a little easier for you I’ve rounded up a selection of products that will give you that summer lovin’ feeling all year long, or at least until the next time June rolls around.

Must Haves: 7 Tiny Makeup Bags For Your Everyday Essentials

Finding yourself out in public looking decidedly worse for the wear and without access to your trusted array of makeup is a total nightmare. It’s hard not to panic when, say, you’re encroaching on oil slick status en route to a spur-of-the-moment party, or you’ve spotted your ex across the Starbucks line and you don’t have so much as an errant lipstick on hand. Of course, lugging around your entire face-painting collection is impractical and virtually impossible, but it’s always important to have the essentials stashed away, you know, just in case. These seven makeup bags are petite enough to fit in a satchel, but have just enough room for the basics, not to mention the tiny coordinating treats you may just want to throw in, too …

The Top Three Beauty Trends To Watch (And Emulate) This Fall

Brace yourselves: it’s time to start considering fall beauty. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing our lighter, more low-maintenance summer beauty routines, but the forecast will be replete with smoky eyes and vampy lips before we know it. I look to the Autumn/Winter runway shows for a bit of insight into what we’ll be seeing on the red carpet in the coming months — and if celebrity trends are any indicator, we should all be in search of that perfect burgundy lipstick. Click through for a selection of fall looks straight off the catwalk, along with a few simple steps to wearing them yourself.

Anthropologie gives me a complex. I walk in and I’m like, “I want this life,” which turns into “Does anyone actually have this life?,” which quickly becomes “Why is this life so goddamn expensive?” I go because I want one top; I emerge with that top, a whimsical set of $20 bobby pins, a $60 coffee table book, and maybe some driftwood or tree branches. Don’t even get me started on their beauty section — as the biggest sucker of all time for gorgeously packaged items I definitely don’t need, I am all over it. Basically, Anthropologie is a well-designed trap, and they get me every time. It’s shabby chic, you guys! I need it! Keep reading »

We already know that Maria Sharapova is a hardcore philanthropist and kickass tennis player who has scored some of the biggest endorsement deals around, but her equally formidable sweet tooth managed to fly under the radar … until now. The Olympic silver medalist and four-time Grand Slam winner (and she’s only 25!) launched her premium candy line, Sugarpova, at Henri Bendel yesterday, and at risk of sounding tooth-achingly trite, Sharapova looked pretty damn sweet herself. A metallic dark brown liner smudged between the lashes and a sheer, shimmery mushroom taupe shadow on the lids enhances her almond-shaped eyes without the “too much” factor when paired with a pretty coral lipstick. This look is super-simple and the clean, fresh vibe is perfect for the office … or anywhere else, really. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »
