NYFW Backstage Beauty: Dramatic Eyes

I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It's not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason "runway beauty…

Valentine’s Day Make-Up Tutorial: Pretty In Pink

I love the idea of doing a special makeup look for Valentine's Day. Pink is the obvious color choice, but dramatic pink makeup has a tendency to look more like an eye infection than a fashion statement, so I challenged my makeup artist friend Aileen to come up with a wearable pink makeup look. She…

Beauty How-To: Steal Dianna Agron’s SAG Awards Beauty

The SAG Awards don't excite me all that much. As Amelia said in her round-up of the best dressed, it's the most self-congratulatory of the awards shows, being that its entire premise is actors awarding actors. Hollywood is nothing if not self-congratulatory, and I love it despite that, but the SAG Awards just tend to…

Hair Dos: 10 Beautiful Buns & Tucks

When I'm not busy picking bald patches into my scalp, I like to look at hair tutorials and screw around with my locks. On days when I wake up with weird cowlicks or greasy roots, I usually pull it back into a sloppy bun, but I'd like to up the ante by trying out one…

How To Get Kristen Stewart’s Girly Goth Look

Is it just me or has Kristen Stewart been looking her best ever while doing the "Breaking Dawn" publicity circuit? She's obviously very attractive, but some of her past appearances have made me cringe just because she looks so damn uncomfortable.

5 Runway To Real Life Beauty Looks

Fashion begins on the runway. Once the seasonal collections are shown, the standard is set for labels everywhere, who work to emulate — but not copy — the hottest catwalk trends.

Not Watching The Guardian’s Beauty Tutorials By Sali Hughes? You Should Be!

Little known fact about  me: I love makeup. Love. It. I love playing with the colors and the textures and different brushes and learning what products do what.

Beauty How To: Cut Your Own Bangs — If You Dare

Bangs can be pesky. They grow out quickly. Without experience, taking matters into your own hands isn't the best idea. (Case in point: My dad once decided to cut my bangs when I was 7. I was left with a straight-edged tuft of hair three inches above my eyebrows. I still haven’t recovered). Yet, with…

Beauty How To: Vampy Red Lips & Nails

I remember watching “Dynasty” in the '80s and thinking that Krystle and Alexis Carrington were so fantastically glam. Their glitzy, sequined dresses, shellacked hair, long, red talons and crimson lips were just IT, you know? If I saw those cats on TV today, however, I’d probably mistake them for two campy transvestites and wonder why…

Beauty How To: Brigitte Bardot’s Bedroom Hair

Achieving that Brigette Bardot-esque “bedroom hair” look is damn tricky. I tried it once, and instead of getting sexy, sultry, I-just-rolled-out-of-bed sexpot locks, I wound up with messy, unkempt, Amy Winehouse-in-her- darkest-days hair. Not pretty, to say the least. To make sure I get it right the next time, I consulted Liam Carrey, stylist from…
