Choupette is suspiciously absent...

Well, that was quick! A little over a month ago, my personal Jesus, Karl Lagerfeld, announced plans to consummate the love that we’ve always known existed between him and Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura. Karl’s been known to use Shu products in an unorthodox way: rather than sketch out his sublime designs for Chanel in pencil or pen, Karl prefers to draw with Shu products for their endless array of vivid colors. The man behind the international makeup mecca, who was a personal friend of Lagerfeld, passed away in 2007, and that ended the brand’s retail in the States. Which is yet another reason to skip the store and take to the Internet for your makeup needs (particularly, the Shu Uemura e-store). Karl Lagerfeld partnered with Shu Uemura to create his limited-edition “Noël 2012″ line, and in light of the fated partnership, Karl appropriately synthesized “Japanese pop with European chic” to birth Mon Shu Girl, the adorable cartoon character he’s chosen as the face of his cosmetics debut. She’s no Choupette, of course, but we’ll take her! [Racked]

Kristen Stewart’s Hot Pink Lips Are The Perfect Low-Maintenance Accessory For Summer

Kristen vs. Charlize
Who looked fiercer at the Snow White premiere? Read More »

I have my doubts about Kristen Stewart’s capabilities as a dramatic actress, but I’ll gladly take her as a red carpet presence: in the last few months (or, really, publicity rounds) she seems to have emerged from her cocoon of hideously uncomfortable public awkwardness to flit around like a sneaker-clad fledgling butterfly (if only she would keep her damn hands out of her hair!). As far as beauty goes, the “Twilight” actress (duh) rarely ventures outside of a semi-safe smoky eye/nude lip or clean eye/red lip scheme, but this weekend’s appearance at Comic-Con saw her switching it up in the most on-trend way possible.

Mila Kunis is a force to be reckoned with: she’s the rare celebrity, or even human being (!), who is all at once beautiful, hilarious, intelligent, ballsy, self-deprecating, honest, and humble — at least, she appears to be all of those things. (Who said girls couldn’t be gorgeous and sidesplittingly funny? Oh yeah, that was you, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.) Every time I read a new interview with Mila, I’m consistently impressed by how well she carries herself and how “in touch” she is with real life and herself, and how much better she could do than Ashton Kutcher (though actually I’m erring on his side of favor what with Demi’s rumored brand of crazy).

Her August cover of Interview magazine reveals a soul-searching conversation with James Franco (a glorified “interview” between friends in Interview fashion) and an equally compelling photoshoot, but I’m really just partial to the front image. While I’ve been steering clear of eyeshadow and heavy-handed bronzer lately given the makeup-melting heat, this look is forcing me to reconsider my stance. It’s one of the simplest faces to create, but it’s so sultry and so effective, if “summer sexpot” is what you’re going for, and of course it is. Tips, tricks, and products, after the jump!

As resident beauty fiend among beauty fiends (my product collection has surpassed hoarder status and shows no signs of ever stopping), I find the Internet to be the most conducive medium by which to feed my addiction. I will always keep close to my heart the shiny, aspirational aesthetics of glossy magazine beauty spreads, but hello, there’s like three pages of them, and the internet just has such an infinite wealth of knowledge and experience — especially where sources like Into The Gloss are concerned. This treasure trove hardly needs my recommendation given their immense success, but I’m going to give it anyway, especially in light of their recent renovation: in September 2010, former Vogue stylist Emily Weiss took her passion for beauty and combined it with her your-coolest-prettiest-worldliest-friend editorial voice and aptitude for sharp, unnerving photography (reminiscent of a decidedly less pervy Terry Richardson), then got all of her famous fashion-world friends in on it. I mean, where else can you find Beth Ditto’s beauty secrets, personal, behind-the-scenes looks at fashion shows, and insight into the life of a beauty editor, all in one place? Keep reading »

Boscia’s Cooling Eye Balm Smooths Over Last Night’s Wounds

Chart: Eyebrow Plucking
When do you do it? Read More »

I wake up to my signature puffy eye area every morning, without fail. It just so happens that my very favorite things are, in fact, the things that cause puffy under-eyes in the first place: salt, alcohol, coffee, contact lenses, staying up late, black eyeliner in my waterline … the list goes on. I’m not ready to give any of these things up right now, so I’ve given every supposed super-effective remedy (cucumbers, tea bags, ice, massage) a fair shot in the meantime.

Let’s cut to the chase — they never work, and if they do, they never work for me. What does work for me, however, is Boscia’s Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm. This little twist-up stick sounds too good (and too costly) to be true, but turns out it’s actually the best thing ever. It soothes and refreshes my tired eyes, and it contains only skin-safe ingredients that won’t compromise comfort (in other words, it’s cooling, not burning). I’ve gotten into the habit of keeping it in the fridge and smoothing it on cold when I wake up. It’s the perfect pick-me-up, no matter how many glasses of red wine or bags of potato chips I had.
