True Story: I Stopped Washing My Hair (And So Should You!)

The first time I met my friend Jeff, I told him his hair was amazing. It was a thick, effortlessly tousled blond mane that anyone would envy. “That’s because I stopped washing it two years ago,” he told me.

10 Super Easy Ways To Simplify Your Makeup Routine

After giving up makeup for two weeks this summer, I had a realization: my usual makeup routine was way, way too complicated. Two weeks was enough to get used to the whole “zero-get-ready-time” thing, and along the way, I completely lost my tolerance for time-consuming cosmetics.

Weekend Project: Whip Up Some Yummy Lip Balm

When it’s hot and humid, I’m a big believer that the best makeup routine is a bit of mascara and a constantly reapplied sheen of lip balm (although if you want to add in a couple more products, our beauty guru Rachel has some great tips). I’ve never made my own lip balm before, but… More »

An All-Natural Deodorant That Actually Does What It Claims (Really!)

There’s been a lot of talk in the past few years about chemicals in deodorant and their potential cancer-causing properties. I can’t speak to that because I’m not a scientist (weird, right?), but I do know that traditional deodorants and antiperspirants have never quite worked for me: my sensitive skin and haphazard shaving habits make… More »


10 Lip Colors That Won’t Scare Off Your (Or Any) Guy

As the kind of girl who leaves red lipstick stains on everything, everywhere, I have scared off more than a few men (and probably small children) in my day.

Makeup Bag: The Best Beauty Buys $25 And Under

I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s resolutions have a lot to do with being a little more frugal. It hurts to part with my crazy-high skincare and makeup budget (seriously, what’s wrong with me?), but this is something that must be done.

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 bronzers… More »


Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow Has Seven Sides And “Rock” Is One Of Them

Here are just a few of the many reasons I wake up every day pissed off that I’m not Margot Tenenbaum: child prodigy, award-winning author and playwright, perfect bob and the face to pull it off, mink coat, wooden finger, cold, haughty aloofness, perfect eyeliner application, marriage to Raleigh St. Clair, verboten romance with hot… More »


CC Cream Set To Replace BB Cream As The All-In-One Beauty Product Of Choice

The beauty industry is kind of like Apple insofar as just when you think you’ve got your hands on the latest and greatest product, there’s an even better one already on the horizon.

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon Balm Stain

I am very possibly a lip beauty product hoarder. Alas, that is not what we are here to discuss.
