The Terrible Beauty Habit I Share With Lady Gaga

Ladies, I’m about to tell you something really gross — something really disgusting that it seems both Lady Gaga and I have a habit of doing. I know that from a very young age, little girls have it drilled into them that we’re not supposed to do this, but I can’t help myself… Keep reading »

Photoshop Fail: What Did Rimmel Do To Zooey Deschanel’s Face?

A few months ago, we told you that the makeup brand Rimmel London had signed Zooey Deschanel as their new spokesmodel. So when we saw this ad for Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick, we were like, “Weird, who is this chick? Where’s Zooey?” Oh, but this is Zooey, after some serious Photoshopping. Rendering your famous spokesmodel completely unrecognizable — not to mention a wee bit wall-eyed! — doesn’t seem like a very brilliant business move. [Styleite] Keep reading »

Make Up For Ever’s Models Aren’t Airbrushed

Photoshop is out of control, people. These days, y’all should just assume any model’s thighs are twice as thick as they appear. That’s why I’m loving these completely unretouched ads from the beauty line Make Up For Ever. In fact, these pics have even been certified by a notary! Each of the models is naturally gorgeous and had her makeup professionally applied, of course. But I still love any and all proof that women can look this ah-maz-ing without airbrushing.

Check out another one of Make Up For Ever’s airbrushing-free images, after the jump: Keep reading »

You’ve heard this makeup rule before: You only highlight your eyes or your lips, not both … until now. Illamasqua has introduced the Colour Collision collection that basically wants you to clash in a good way.

I would have had no idea who this famous singer this was if I had seen her in the airport without her face on. Who do you think it is? Her identity revealed after the jump. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How I Look At Myself In The Mirror These Days

You can tell a lot about what’s going on in a woman’s life based on the conversations she has with herself when she looks in a mirror. Sitting in a church or temple pew, or lying awake in bed at night, might be when she does the most deep thinking. But what goes through her head while she glances in the mirror brushing her teeth or washing her hands in the bathroom at work — those are the moments she talks to herself about what she sees. Interacting with her appearance, she’s either a friend or an enemy. Keep reading »

Are You A Makeup Agoraphobe?

What’s makeup agoraphobia? Well, listen to this. A new study has concluded that one-third of all women refuse to leave the house without wearing makeup. In other words, they can’t go out without painting their face first. Which is kind of shocking. Not only that, but more than a third of the 3,000 women polled speculated that had they not been wearing makeup when they met, their significant other wouldn’t have gone for them. Sad truth: I’m a bit of a makeup agoraphobe myself. Unless the kitchen is on fire, I’m disinclined to go out without mascara, some cover-up, and blush. What about you? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Beauty Rewards Program Gives You A Reason To Shop At CVS

CVS has expanded its ExtraCare program to include beauty rewards, giving you a reason to shop there. (I say “a reason” because no matter where the CVS is or the time of day, I’ve always had to wait in an epic line to checkout.) Participants will get a 10 percent coupon for registering, a $5 ExtraBucks for every $50 spent, and a $3 ExtraBucks for their birthday. But coupons aren’t the only incentives for signing up for the beauty rewards program. You’ll also receive beauty tips, discounts for online shipping, invitations to exclusive in-store beauty events, access to products before they launch, and personalized beauty offers. The benefits are similar to the ones Sephora’s Beauty Insider program offers, but the prices of the products are cheaper. You can sign up here. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Watch The “Black Swan” Makeup Tutorial That’s Actually Biting Social Commentary


Maybe you haven’t seen “Black Swan” yet, but everyone by now knows that movie is CRAZY. True story: yesterday I saw “Black Swan” and as the credits were rolling, my mom goes, “Which one was Winona Ryder?” And I said, “The crazy one.” And then some random woman who overheard us added, “They were all crazy.” You know what else is crazy in that movie? The makeup. That’s why YouTube star GlowPinkStah has filmed herself doing a wacky-ass “Black Swan” makeup tutorial for Natalie Portman‘s signature look. But seriously, no one watches her videos to see her do makeup. Her ridiculously dry sense of humor and biting social commentary is worth the spoilers. If you’ve seen “Black Swan,” it will make more sense. But either way, go get yourself a diaper because you’re gonna pee yourself laughing. It’s … dare I say … perfect. [YouTube] Keep reading »
