The cooler seasons always call for more dramatic beauty looks, from sultry smoky eyes to vampy red lips, but this year’s focus is especially inclined toward a statement lip that’s a touch darker than the usual fall fare. Most of us (myself included) won’t have the guts for the vampy bordeaux lips we’ve been seeing on celebs, but a striking red never goes out of style (plus, it totally completes an otherwise low-maintenance face, perfect for those foggy mornings where you just don’t want to get out of bed). The catch to wearing the look is that, while bold opaque lipstick is guaranteed to grab attention, it also grabs on to any wayward imperfections, like fine lines or chapped lips. There are a few steps you can take to get the most out of your lipstick, whether it’s matte or satin, burgundy or coral — just follow these tips and go for it! Keep reading »

How To Prepare The Perfect Cheese Board

As I’ve mentioned before, my boyfriend Nick is a cheesemonger, which means he spends at least 40 hours a week packaging, preparing, selling, discussing, and sampling cheeses. With the holiday party season just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to combine our talents and force him to help me write a post about cheese on his day off. A cheese board is really just a simple spread of a few different cheeses and accompaniments, and thanks to the surging popularity of artisan cheeses and gourmet food websites, it’s easier than ever to get your hands on some truly fabulous fromage these days. I asked Nick to pick three types of cheeses and a few accompaniments to create a foolproof cheese board guaranteed to impress party guests and your taste buds. Ready to get started? Just click on the gallery and say, “Cheese!”

So we’ve covered both the top trends to watch this fall and the five must-haves you need to get them, but there’s one particular look that’s been safely concealed beneath the radar until now. Burgundy eyeshadow — or, well, any eyeshadow with warm reddish tones — doesn’t exactly sound like the most flattering of colors, but you’d be pleasantly surprised by how wearable the vampy shade becomes when applied sheer and smoky like a haze around the eye.

The Top Three Beauty Trends To Watch (And Emulate) This Fall

Brace yourselves: it’s time to start considering fall beauty. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing our lighter, more low-maintenance summer beauty routines, but the forecast will be replete with smoky eyes and vampy lips before we know it. I look to the Autumn/Winter runway shows for a bit of insight into what we’ll be seeing on the red carpet in the coming months — and if celebrity trends are any indicator, we should all be in search of that perfect burgundy lipstick. Click through for a selection of fall looks straight off the catwalk, along with a few simple steps to wearing them yourself.

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it’s stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it, and though there was a significant amount of scandal surrounding that whole situation, it seems to me like the circumstances were very different from what the general public took from it (which, it must be said, definitely applies to most celebrity “scandals”). But I digress, because all I really have to say is: how gorgeous are these photos from the British actress’s September cover of Marie Claire UK? Those eyes! That hair! If I could have anyone’s face, I would probably choose Rachel Weisz, because look. Since I am ostensibly unable to do that, I’ll settle for trying to make myself look like her by piling on the bronze eyeshadow and contouring the hell out of my cheekbones. After the jump, check out my product picks for recreating Rachel’s smoky, subtle beauty — I know you don’t want to think about this, but it’s truly perfect for fall. Keep reading »

DIY: How To Make This Beaded Necklace!

We are huge fans of DIY projects that can make us look glam in under 15 minutes. This DIY necklace design (made by me and modeled by Amelia) is awesome for three reasons: 1) It picks up on one of the hottest necklace trends, beads and chain; 2) you can recycle beads and a chain from another necklace or bracelet you have (if you want); and 3) the magnetic clasps mean you can make tons of bead combinations on new strands and swap them in!

After the jump is your list of supplies, and if you’re new to beading, a video we made for additional info. Keep reading »
