Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Bigger Than BB Big Easy Foundation

Jessica and I are the office powder foundation enthusiasts, so when she received Benefit’s Bigger Than BB Big Easy Liquid-to-Powder foundation she quickly handed me a sample.  Let me start by stating, I haven’t worn liquid foundation regularly in over eight years. Just the idea of liquid foundation makes my face scrunch up, but I…

Beauty Test Drive: S.W. Basics Reusable Eco Cotton Rounds

The other day, I was talking to my friend Lauren about ethical fashion and being more conscious consumers (because we’re exactly the kind of nerds who can talk about this topic for hours), and she said something that totally resonated with me: “Once you commit to being a more ethical consumer, it spills over into…

Beauty Test Drive: LORAC’s Take A Brow Kit

Some women never leave the house without lipstick. I never leave the house without eyebrows. Many assumed my eyebrows are so sparse because of over-plucking, but in reality they just never grew in.  This is it. Some women (like Whoopi Goldberg) simply go without and others (like Miley Cyrus) conceal them. I like to fill…

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

I’m not a lipstick person. Not in the slightest. For the most part, avoiding lipstick is due to my enormous fear that it’s going to smear all over my face or my teeth. I’ve seen it happen to too many women and my second-hand embarrassment for them has scared me away from wearing lipstick i…

I’m Not So Sure About Julep.com, The Nail-Polish-Of-The-Month Club

I’d seen a million ads for Julep.com on my Facebook or various clothing and beauty sites and they always caught my eye. There’d be pictures of nail polishes in cute colors and something about getting a new box every month. Fun! I live on a budget, though, so I always quelled my desire to join.

Beauty How-To: Amy Adams’ Dewy Glow In “American Hustle”

Over the holidays, I finally saw “American Hustle,” starring Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence. Depending on who you ask, the movie is either THE BEST OF THE YEAR or a complete disaster. Or, if you were to ask me, I would tell you that the movie is okay, but worth seeing…

10 Super Easy Ways To Simplify Your Makeup Routine

After giving up makeup for two weeks this summer, I had a realization: my usual makeup routine was way, way too complicated. Two weeks was enough to get used to the whole “zero-get-ready-time” thing, and along the way, I completely lost my tolerance for time-consuming cosmetics. Before my makeup fast, I was spending at least…

Melissa Joan Hart Looks Like She Rubbed A Powdered Donut On Her Forehead (Plus, 11 Other Celebrity Powder Mishaps)

Excuse me, Melissa Joan Hart? I know you’re on your way into the premiere of “Frozen” but I really feel like someone should tell you this. You have something on your face. Specifically your forehead. Wait, there’s some around your nose and mouth too. Powdered sugar? Cocaine? Translucent powder? Probably the latter, most likely, though…

3 Ways To Wear Wine-Colored Lipstick This Holiday Season

I feel like we kind of have an “honesty at all times” policy over here at The Frisky. I may not be particularly forthcoming about my sex life or getting tampons lost inside of me, so I guess it’s only fair that I divulge all of my beauty secrets, no facades to be allowed. Let’…

What Would It Mean To Have Adele (Or Any Other Plus-Size Woman) As The Face Of L’Oreal?

Adele has reportedly backed away from a $20 million contract with L’Oreal that she has been negotiating since March. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, sources had said the singer needed “a lot of persuasion to get her to agree” but “it looks like she’s close to landing a deal.”

8 Beauty Rituals That Are Surprisingly Meditative

When I went on a makeup hiatus, one of the most unexpected epiphanies I had was that I actually missed the time I spent getting ready in the mornings. Not because I enjoyed getting up early or repeatedly poking myself in the eye with a mascara brush, but because having some time set aside every…

7 Things I Learned From Not Wearing Makeup For 2 Weeks

A few weeks ago, I decided to stop wearing makeup for awhile. If I were being partially honest I would say this decision was based on the hot weather and humidity, which caused any makeup I applied to promptly slide off my face in an unsightly Maybelline mudslide. If I were being totally honest, I…

Makeup I’m Throwing Away Right This Minute

I hate throwing stuff away, makeup especially, because it’s already superfluous in terms of basic human existence. So throwing it in the actual garbage makes me feel like a reaaaal “who do you think you are?” type of lady.

But alas, my bedroom is overflowing with shit. Shit I can’t use. Shit I…
