Finding the right foundation never stops being annoying, does it? Some go on so creamy that it looks like glop. Others go on so sheer that you barely get any coverage. I’ve been happily wearing Maybelline’s FIT ME foundation for about six months, but as spring turns to summer, I’m keen for something that feels lighter on my skin. Enter Napoleon Perdis Off Duty Tinted Moisturizer — it is perfect. As a tinted moisturizer virgin, I wish I’d found this years ago. Keep reading »

I think we can all agree that Lana del Rey is not set to become the next star on the Adele spectrum. The singer-songwriter’s album, performances, and appearance have been panned by critics and consumers alike since she first gained notoriety via — what else? — the Internet. For me, she’s an incredibly guilty pleasure on par with Katy Perry: I will never, ever expose my love to any of my Young Hip Brooklyn (credit: Ami) friends, but they will have 300+ plays on my iTunes. Del Rey doesn’t have much more to offer than your average pseudo-edgy (ahem, potentially fabricated history of meth addiction?) bubblegum pop star, but I would be lying through my teeth if I said that I didn’t try to emulate her hair and makeup on an everyday basis. Her fashion choices aren’t even that impressive to me (though her Met Ball look could have been stellar had she shed the cape) but whoever does her face nails it every time. Her usual simple-yet-glamorous look is the one I aspire to recreate: well-defined, flicked-out eyes with long lashes, thick groomed brows, neutral lips, and long, side-parted hair styled in retro waves recall Brigitte Bardot. Am I a straight up fraud for loving this controversial star’s beauty style? [Canada.com]

Why We Love To See Our Stars Sans Makeup

We love seeing celebs without makeup, and this year, People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” issue even featured a bunch of famous ladies sans fards. But it used to be that celebrities would avoid being seen without a full face of makeup. What changed? A fascinating article from New York magazine charts the changing celebrity attitude towards getting caught without their faces made. Stars like Snooki, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all willingly been shot without makeup, with the idea that they’re somehow subverting the celebrity machine in doing so.   Keep reading »

Run Out Of Breath Mints On Purpose

You can finally stop carrying breath mints with you everywhere you go. And all those lip glosses in your purse? Get rid of them because C.O. Bigelow’s mentha breath freshening lip shine  is the only thing you’ll need. This mint infused lip balm provides a glossy shine that keeps your lips moist while the peppermint oil keeps your breath fresh for hours. Perfect for hot dates (which involve kissing) or long, sunny days at the beach.

Makeup Bag: 10 Product Picks For A Summer-Proof Face

I’m convinced that I am one of melting makeup’s worst victims. I have serious issues keeping my face on the other nine months of the year, let alone summer, when it’s prime time for super sexy sweaty skin. As such, I’ve been forced to develop some pretty hardcore techniques for keeping my makeup on as long as possible. The best strategy I can stand behind is to keep it minimal, especially as far as foundation goes — and by that, I mean no foundation at all. It may sound scary, but a little bit of tinted moisturizer and a whole lot of a good concealer can carry you through the day (and oh, those summer nights) without the spotty disintegrating effect a thicker formula tends to cause when things get heated. Thankfully, I’m not alone in this fight — some of my favorite brands have stepped up to give me a hand in my battle against the heat. Here are ten of my product picks for makeup that stays fresh, even when you feel anything but.

That Chanel logo on your powder compact is great, but wouldn’t it be even better on your face? No need to worry–soon you’ll be able to buy Chanel logo stickers as part of the brand’s upcoming Collection Versailles. Chanel’s makeup director Peter Philips says the black velvet stickers are supposed to resemble Marie Antoinette’s famous “beauty spots;” we think they resemble, well, little Chanel logo stickers. So, what do you think of this idea? Will you be sporting Chanel face stickers any time soon? [Elle]
