Can We Please Have A Selena-Inspired MAC Collection?

It's been 20 years since the death of Selena Quintanilla, and much like her music, her signature makeup look is still just as coveted today as it was in 1995. There are about a billion YouTube tutorials featuring her trademark red lips and dark brows, so why not launch a Selena-inspired cosmetics collection? Countless celebs have had their…

Uh-Oh: Study Finds Eyeliner Can Mess With Your Vision

It's been said for years that misusing eye makeup can cause health problems, but most of us only see "misuse" as keeping our mascara past its expiration date. New research out of Cardiff University in Wales shows that wearing eye makeup in the first place can be an issue on its own! Study director Dr. Alison Ng found that applying eyeliner…

Thank Us Later: Glorious Eye Makeup Remover That Won’t Set Your Face On Fire

For years, I slept with my eyeliner and mascara on, knowing full well that this was not something functional grown-ups did and was probably terrible for my skin, but ignoring it nonetheless. Far worse than whatever invisible damage I was doing to my face was the morning-after makeup residue that took the shape of black spots on my pillowcase,…

Kim Kardashian’s Beauty Routine Is Just The Right Amount Of Ridiculous

Kim Kardashian sat down with beauty blog IntoTheGloss and divulged her beauty routine, which is kind of ridiculous, but not as insane as you might think. Her hair, which I think is her best feature now that it's short and choppy, is washed every five days. FIVE DAYS! Kim Kardashian! Her contour game seems surprisingly low-key,…

Get The Look: 5 Stunning Oscar Beauty Looks To Snag Now

Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa isn't going to make you a custom pearl-encrusted gown like Lupita Nyong'o's and you probably will never get to wear a $1.5 million Van Cleef and Arpels necklace like Margot Robbie, but if you break open your piggy bank and dig beneath the couch cushions, you'll likely have enough to…

Beauty IRL: Foundation’s All Right, I Guess

There’s something about foundation that has always confounded me, but I have made a vow with myself this year to figure it out. Why would you want to hide your face like that, to conceal what your skin has gone through? Scars, zits, weird splotches, that patch of freckles that you look at every month…

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick

In my ongoing mission to wear bold lipstick more regularly, I've been trying on whatever tubes of lipstick are put in front of me without much thought. When I swiped on Bite's Luminous Creme lipstick, I fell in love. This stuff is the best.

Beauty IRL: Trust Me, You Should Wear Blush

Don’t fear the blush, even though it is intimidating and weird. It’s the a product many write off as completely unnecessary. but is actually really, really important. Think about it this way: Once you’ve done all that you need to do to your face, you’re left with a beautiful, even-toned canvas — but it’s all the same color.

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Doll

The Body Shop's Lip & Cheek Doll stain has adorable packaging, but does the product on the inside match the outside? I love lip and cheek stains but I find them kind of stressful. When done right, they look fabulous, but when done wrong, they streak all over the place and can look like play…

Beauty IRL: Making The Case For The Bare Face

I realize the benefits of makeup. I acknowledge its usefulness in looking and feeling put together, pretty, and confident. If you have a zit that’s screaming for attention, the ability to slap on some concealer and go about your business is fantastic. Lipstick changes your entire appearance and makes a sweatshirt and crappy jeans that…

Beauty IRL: Don’t Fear The Bold Lip

I know the beauty industrial complex yells a lot about how the bright lip is the only thing you need in your arsenal, and how it makes you look instantly pulled together, gorgeous and glowy, hiding the hideous shebeast beneath with one swipe. This is the job of most beauty writing. It alternately intimidates and…

How Do I Find My Inner Red Lipstick Chutzpah?

Confession time: I have a weird phobia surrounding bright lipstick. I used to read the online worries of other women who were too fearful to go out in public with a bright red lip and feel smug in my refusal to to get caught up in such petty hang-ups (I know, rude), and now here…

Beauty Test Drive: TopShop Creamy Finish Lipstick In Wicked

I'm super into the dark lip trend that's going on right now, but with my fair complexion it's hard to find a color that doesn't make me look like a vampire. When TopShop sent us some of their new fall/winter lipsticks, I spotted a burgundy color called "Wicked" that I knew I wanted to try.
