It’s hard to ignore the hideous ’80s images that flash before our eyes when we think of purple eyeshadow, but a recent uptick in celebs pulling off the look has forced us to re-consider our fear of the stuff. Katy Perry may look a little bit like a pretty bobblehead doll in this picture but… READ MORE »

When I lived at home, my mom made us — and our confused friends — wash our feet in the sink before entering the house proper during the summer. In sandal weather, she could often be heard admonishing us not to “drag our street feet into the house!” As a result, I’m flexible and balanced… READ MORE »

When I’ve shelled out big bucks for beauty products, I’d like them to last as long as possible. But what can you do besides turn bottles upside down when products get down to the end?

If you show up at a daytime wedding caked in makeup with a prom-style updo, you’re going to look like a moron. There, we said it.
