Why We Love To See Our Stars Sans Makeup

Pretty Makeup Palettes
10 makeup palettes almost too pretty to use. Read More »

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]

Our Top 10 Nail Color Picks For Summer 2012

Every year I look forward to summer’s vivid, unabashed nail polish shades, but this season’s selections are especially blazing — eye-searing, in fact. We’ve been seeing a major upswing in all things neon since winter, and colors just keep getting brighter and brighter. Where fashion goes, nails follow suit, and isn’t it wonderful? Nothing yanks me out of my summer up-all-night stupor in the morning like a huge iced coffee and a flash of neon. I’m actually a religious wearer of flesh-toned fingernails, but my toes are all about the flashiest of pinks and oranges come mid-May. Here are my top ten must-wear shades for the summertime (and beyond, if you’re brave). For best results and maximum impact, pair with all-white and a contrasting neon lip color. The sun will thank you for taking some of the heat off.

Natalie Portman and ballerina ballerino danseur hubby Benjamin Millepied stepped out to the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala last night looking spectacularly gorgeous, thereby further reinforcing my long-enduring belief that Natalie is one of the most ethereal and beautiful creatures on this planet (and is, in fact, quite possibly not of this earth at all). Her tiered Dior gown isn’t something I would normally go for, but it looks stunning on her, and my God, that makeup! That face! Perfection. She gets me every time.
