These Half-Drag Portraits Will Make You Reconsider Everything You Know About Beauty

If you find T Magazine‘s Model-Morphosis as utterly transfixing as I do, then prepare to be stunned: photographer Leland Bobbé’s incredible new portraits will blow your mind. The ongoing series depicts men who masquerade as women as one dichotomous (and, it must be said, beautiful) persona — half masculine, half feminine, neither male nor female. Says the artist, “My intention is to capture both the male and the alter-ego female side of these subjects in one image … These are composed in camera and are not two separate images joined together.” The result is a powerful and welcome addition to the conversation of gender and a segue into Nietzche’s overman, “the man that goes beyond, who is beyond.” I’ll drink to that! Click through to check out the full series. Fair warning: there are many. [Refinery29 via Vogue Italia]

My favorite sport has long been surfing the web, preferably on a bed or chaise lounge, but rumor has it that such a sedentary lifestyle might not actually be the best thing for your body. So don’t laugh, but lately I’ve been making more of an effort to get off my lazy ass and actually move — and being the vain creature that I am, I always insist on wearing makeup to the gym. Sure, I may look better when I walk in, but I reap the rewards of freshly clogged pores and the always charming melted-candle effect (you know what I mean!) before I’ve even finished my requisite half-hour on the elliptical. Enter Rae Cosmetics. This collection was formulated with active women in mind and, despite what its workout-worthy claims may lead you to believe, does not contain sweat-resistant superchemicals: quite the contrary, in fact, as Rae only uses hypoallergenic, all-natural, noncomedogenic ingredients. Sold! [$15-$120, Rae Cosmetics]

Lust Vs. Must: Awesome Orange-y Red Lipstick

Coral is the color of summer. But do you want to spend a ton of money on a lipstick you’ll probably shove deep in your junk drawer once fall comes? We didn’t think so. So we’ve compared some of the most popular corals on the market. Can you tell which is the $24 lipstick and which was plucked from CVS shelves for just $1.99? Keep reading »

We’ve all seen it. You’re huffing and puffing away on the elliptical machine, red-faced, sweat dampening your ampits and hair sticking to your forehead. That girl over there, two machines over, looks cute. She’s wearing eyeshadow. And blush. And oh my God, is she wearing lipstick to exercise?! Keep reading »

The Television Critics Association’s Summer Party is underway as we speak, and the brightest young stars of Showtime, CBS, and the CW are turning out for the occasion. To my delight, this guarantees beauty fodder en masse, and the fresh-faced ladies who regularly grace the small screen have not been known to disappoint. Jaime King has been in the business for some time, but the former high fashion model keeps it low-profile these days — there’s a good chance you won’t recognize her unless you’re a fan of “Hart of Dixie,” in which she plays the antagonist to Rachel Bilson’s main character.

Relax, you guys: the code red alert for Jessica Biel’s bangs trauma has been lowered to third-degree orange! Just kidding, they still look terrible, but at least she’s is figuring out how to work with her unfortunate fringe, no? As seen at the photocall for her new movie “Total Recall” (a remake of the original 1990 film), this is one of my favorite looks that I’ve seen on Jess: soft-focus skin, very little on the eyes, and a rich pink-red lipstick (which seems to be Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Fascinante) to bring the focus to her full lips and make her hazel eyes look greener. From the ears down I love the cool, beachy waves she’s sporting, but the bangs must go. I repeat: the bangs must go.
