Beauty Breakdown: Facial Contouring 101

What is this "contouring" that makeup artists and celebrities speak of? I see it all the time — that subtle shadow right under their cheekbones, lifting their faces, enhancing their features, and overall making them look more beautiful than they already are. How in the world do you do it, and what products do you…

Feel Like A Star On Oscar Night With These 9 Luxurious Treatments

I don't care how cliche it is, I am a girl that loves a good awards show. The bigger the stars (and the more of them), the better. The Oscars have all of my favorite things in one place: glitzy dresses fresh off the runway? Check. Incredible hair and makeup? Check. Acceptance speeches that ru…

Michelle Williams Grows Out Short Hair Just As Awkwardly As Everyone Else

See, even Michelle Williams has to deal with that awkward stage between having a pixie cut and… not having a pixie cut. It's pretty cool that she's choosing to wear the length as is (which is admittedly kind of Kate Gosselin-esque, no?) without going the extensions route, which she could so easily do. Don't…

Beauty Breakdown: Kate Mara

"I'm in love with Kate Mara's look from the 'House of Cards' premiere. How can a mere mortal like me score her otherworldly glowy skin and gorgeous eyes?" -- Jennifer Oh, a Mara looking freakishly flawless; what else is new? No matter how far I zoom in on this photo, I cannot find a single blemish.

Beauty Cues: The Whimsical Witches Of “Oz The Great And Powerful”

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you there. I'm just having sensory overload and perhaps some minor hyperventilation after seeing three of my faves all together on the red carpet yellow brick road. Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz are the stars of "Oz The Great and Powerful," as the Wicked…

Adam Levine Launches Eponymous Fragrance Line, Boldly Compares Himself To Tom Ford

Say what you will about him, but Adam Levine has always given me a crippling case of the skeeves. I know I am in the minority because even my mom thinks he's sexy, and her idea of a sex symbol is, like, Gregory Peck. Also, he totally serial-dates Victoria's Secret models with a rapidity…

Beauty Cues: Jessica Chastain’s Updated Black Liner Look

As a general rule, I shy away from black eyeliner on the lower lid; when used around the entirety of the eye, its eye-shrinking abilities are unrivaled. The only people who can pull it off, in my opinion, are those who are all-around ungodly beautiful (Angelina Jolie!) and those who have a naturally bigger, rounder…

How Do You Feel About Teal Eye Makeup?

We've been feeling an unexpected dash of color on the eyes as of late, probably in an effort to counteract the SAD effects of gloomy winter weather. Elle Fanning is definitely a pioneer of adventurous, avant-garde fashion and makeup, but I happen to think this is one quirky liner look that anyone could…

Our Favorite Beauty Looks From The SAG Awards (And How To Get Them)

I am a happy spectator of any and all awards shows for what is likely the same reason that most people are: I love nothing more than to turn on my TV, eat a ton of bread, and watch the most beautiful people in the world prance around in designer dresses and the kind of…

Beauty Cues: Rose Byrne’s Simple Shaded Eyes

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 i…

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 cele…

Makeup Bag: Keep Your Icy Cool This Winter

It's always around this time of year that we notice our skin has taken a turn for the lackluster. We don't know where to point fingers: the colder temperatures, the food, the drinks, the activities, or (most likely) some combination thereof? As it happens, it's also around this time of year that our shimmery bronzer…

Holiday Beauty How-To: Jessica Alba’s Berry-Stained Lips

I am forever envious of Jessica Alba's uncanny ability to always look like she's being professionally backlit (is she?). The woman just glows! Of course, I think her makeup might have a little something to do with it, too: pearly peach-brown shadow paired with a berry lip stain is a fresh look that's a…

Kelly Osbourne’s Friends Smell Her Before They See Her

"It's called L'Artisan Parfumeur's Mûre et Musc and I've been wearing it since I was 12. My dad wouldn't let me wear makeup. 'No daughter of mine is going to look like a whore!' So my mom compromised with me by letting me get perfume. I got it because the bottle was purple and I…

If I were Kristen Stewart, I would bid adieu to my sparkly boyfriend and put a ring on my makeup artist instead. Whether she's in bright pink lipstick or this gorgeous smoked-out bronze eye, you can always bet on Bella Swan for the most enviable beauty looks (and, okay, arm candy) on any give…

Liv Tyler’s Hair Is Full Of Shiny Secrets

Is there anyone, dead or alive, who could even stand to compete with Liv Tyler's hair game? The only feasible way I could sit through 166 minutes of "The Hobbit" would be if at least 150 of those minutes were devoted to Liv's hair care routine. Wait, is she even in the movie?

Emma Stone Is, Unsurprisingly, The Most Charming Spokesmodel Of All Time

"My hair is a battle. It's an uphill, fine, baby-haired battle. It's bone-straight and I have some pieces that my hairstylist stuck in my hair right now because if she didn't you could see my ears through my hair right now. I mean, not to brag. There's not much going on there. … I have…
