Makeup Bag: The Best Black Eyeliners

Black eyeliner is the dependent variable of my life. From when I wake up in the morning until I take off my makeup at night, I’ve got it on … and not exactly subtly, either. While I love a good tightly lined look that defines the eyes without the telltale sign of makeup, I’m all…

Turning Your Brown Eyes Blue

Well, technically, I’m keeping my brown eyes brown (I like them that way) but want to experiment with lining them in blue. Nars’ larger than life long-wear eyeliner in “Rue Saint-Honore” should add some drama to my fall face, making my natural eye color pop. Cobalt here I come.

Tried & True: CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus

Despite health risks, I’m a huge fan of lining the inner rim of my eyes with deep black eye makeup. For years, I searched for the perfect eyeliner to provide a deep black rim, throwing away more money than I care to think about while testing countless options. Finally, I found my go-to during college,…

Beauty Danger! Eyeliner Isn’t Safe?

I’m a bit of an eyeliner junkie. Every single day, seven days a week, and sometimes more than once a day, I line the inner rims of my eyelids and add mascara. On major makeup days, I’ll outline my entire eye in black eyeliner to draw even more attention to my deep dark look. I’ve…

Meet Cool Girl Beauty Icon, Katie Gallagher

I love when so-called “it” girls actually have more than rock star genes and public intoxication going on. Up-and-coming NYC designer Katie Gallagher worked her arse off in design school at RISD and seems to have some pretty serious chops. (Lady Gaga is a fan of her meticulously crafted metal coil dress.) But apart from…

The 4 Makeup Brushes You Actually Need

Every time I go to Sephora to get some concealer in an attempt to cover up my under-eye zombie circles, some perky salesgirl tries to convince me that I can’t possibly apply said concealer without an army of extra brushes. Ditto on everything from blush to eyeshadow and even lip gloss. Unless you’re a hardcore…

When Eyeliner Crosses The, Er, Line

What are your thoughts on Julianne Moore’s eyeliner here? Va-va-voom chic or just too wacky witch? I can’t decide. On one hand, she totally played her makeup cards exactly right—she went big on the eyes and muted the rest of her face. On the other, I just can’t seem to get past the fact that…

Line The Inner Rim Of Your Eyes Without Making A Teary Mess

Blake Lively and her gorge eyes — thanks to her perfectly lined inner rims — hit the town last night, above. We’ve talked about lining the inner rim of your eyes before, and I’m all about it, but, there’s one problemo: My eyes tear up something crazy and I can’t keep my eyeliner in place.

Beauty Test Drive: DiorLiner Liquid Liner

So, you know how you put on eyeliner in the morning, trying to make it look subtle and work-appropriate, and you’re feeling good about the whole thing until you catch your reflection in the mirror around lunch time and throw up a little? No? Well, it happens when your liner is prone either to smudging…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Babe Cake Eyeliner

We are forever looking for the perfect easy-to-apply eyeliner. Problem is, pencils often smudge and liquid can be a tad tricky for quick and easy application. That’s why we were so excited about Benefit’s “Babe Cake” liner compact. It comes in half black, half brown and the liner is basically the consistency of eyeshadow with…

How To Turn Eyeshadow Into Liquid Liner

We’ve gotten bored with the same old black, brown and gray liner that we use all the time. But rather than blowing money on a whole new set of colored liner, a few cosmetic companies make it really easy to turn your eyeshadow into smudge-proof liquid liner with liquid sealer. We tried one by Make

The One Eyeliner Trick You Can’t Live Without

It was eyeliner hysteria last night on the MTV VMAs red carpet—I want to say 98 percent of the starlets that showed up (Cassie, Nicky Hilton, Pink, J.Lo, etc.), had some version of a heavily lined and super defined eye. Tres chic, sure—but only one pretty lady got the look really right: Lauren Conrad. Check…

This week actress Michelle Monaghan turned it out for the Vogue event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC–they were celebrating the opening of their new and improved third designer-packed floor–along with a slew of other celebs including Anna Wintour fave Charlize Theron. Anyways, Michelle really pulled off the inner lower eyelid lining thing—and it ain’t…

The Hottest “Jesus”

Some people celebrate Easter by going to brunch. Others hunt for plastic eggs. And then there are those who participate in the San Francisco Easter Sunday “Hunky Jesus” competition. Above is 2007’s chosen one. Essentially, the competition, officiated by gay charity group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, requires men to parade around in rags, and one…

Hot Guy Trend: Guyliner

What makes rockers hot other than skinny pants and good hair? Guyliner, aka a thin, manly line made with a black pencil that says, “I’ve got a steady hand.” And an impressive string of straight men have been rockin’ the glam look. Like the guy we all wanted to loose our virginities to, Jordan Catalano,…
