Fresh Faced: 10 Pared-Down Celeb Makeup Looks

There’s a time and a place for a smoked-out eye or a crimson lip — hell, there’s even a time and a place for both at the same time. But even celebrities need to take a hiatus from elaborate, show-stopping makeup once in a while and pare things down for a more natural look, often to equally arresting results. Beautiful people will be beautiful, whether they’re in full-face mode or not! We know full well that a natural makeup look does not necessarily translate to a less makeup look, but there’s definitely a spotlight on skin and features rather than played-up color or trendiness. We love the low-key looks on these 10 celeb ladies…

Makeup Bag: 5 Cures For Common Summer Beauty Concerns

These 5 remedies for common summertime beauty ailments may not be the most glamorous of products, nor will they look all that attractive on top of your dresser, but hey, they get the job done!

For The Sylvia In All Of Us: Almie Rose’s Drunken “Mad Men” Makeup Tutorial

Almie Rose Makeup Tutorial Mad Men Style
I May Not Be Conventionally Pretty, But I Have A Nice Couch

Our dear friend Almie Rose is back and with a new drunken makeup tutorial for how to look like “Mad Men”‘s resident married upstairs apartment hussy Sylvia Rosen. You want to look like Sylvia, right? With the lips, and the eyeshadow, and the potentially explosive extramarital affair with Don Draper? Well, regardless, Almie has a thing or two to teach you about a thing or two.

Oh also, Almie has a book out! What do you do when your ex leaves you for his A-list actress ex girlfriend? How do you land a musician boyfriend? What’s it like to make a total jackass of yourself when you meet that actor you’ve had a crush on for years? What would When Harry Met Sally… look like in 2013? Am I hungry? These questions and more are answered and explored by Almie Rose in I Forgot To Be Famous, essays and how-to’s about dating, relationships, living in Los Angeles, and how they all crash into each other, like the car chase scene in the mall in the Blues Brothers movie, which she hasn’t seen, but is not at all opposed to. I Forgot to Be Famous will be available for pre-order tomorrow and on-sale on Monday!

Adele Trades In Her Usual Heavy Hair For A Fresher Summertime Look

Adele is pretty loyal to her signature glamorous, ’60s-inspired beauty look — the chanteuse is rarely spotted without voluminous hair, flawless skin, a serious cat eye, and a bright red or nude lip. A more pared-down “natural” look is not one we’re accustomed to seeing on her… But now that we’ve seen it, we can’t imagine why she doesn’t wear it more often! The milkmaid-style braids are a massive departure from her trademark beehive, but she wears them well. Perhaps being a new mom has Adele interested in a more low-maintenance look, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s in New York right now, where the current temperature is one million degrees. Regardless, so pretty! (I would also add that this is total summer hair inspiration, but those braids are complicated, goddamnit!)

Forget the drawer, clear out space in your makeup bag if your man is moving in. According to a recent survey of a thousand millennial-age men, guys have officially become more comfortable adopting the grooming habits of women. As many as 60 percent of men now use women’s skincare products, with 14 percent okaying nail polish, 18 percent foundation, and 12 percent eyeliner.

We’re not sure whether to thank Jared Leto, or Captain Jack Sparrow for this change of heart.

I’ve been a fan of Sinful Colors nail polish for a long time, for multiple reasons: one being the fact that it only costs $2 a bottle, another being that it is sold near the beauty counter at Walgreens, which means I buy like three bottles of it per week. Last night I layered SC’s bright blue “Most Sinful” polish under a topcoat of the glittery “Hottie” and was delighted to find it created a sort of galaxy print effect. I shared a pic of my surprise space mani on our Instagram (by the way, are you following us on Instagram? You totally should be! We’re @thefrisky), but I thought it was also finally time to give my favorite cheapie nail polish brand a proper review.

I love wearing all of the makeup, all at once, but as with all things, there exists a time and a place for this sort of excess, and that Time and Place is not late June and not in New York City. Humidity has been the word for the past few weeks, which means that regardless of how much primer you coat yourself in before you put your face on, or powder you layer on after, what’s flawless at 10 AM is going to be a shitshow by the afternoon. Read: YOUR FACE DOES NOT STAND A CHANCE. Since there’s only soooooo much one can do in the face of blistering heat, why not forego the mattifying makeup, and the bold lip, and hell, maybe even leave the under eye concealer at home. Do it, I dare you! Shed that makeup mask and go minimalist — let’s begin with these three simple summer beauty tips… Keep reading »

This “Star Trek Into Darkness” Makeup Boldly Goes Where No Eyeshadow Has Gone Before

Brilliant makeup blogger Sahily recreated the “Star Trek Into Darkness” movie poster image ON HER EYELID as part of her Summer Movie Makeup series. The craziest part is Sahily is not even a “Star Trek” fan; she was just inspired by the movie art. She says this was an artistic experiment, and “not a wearable look,” but I beg to differ. In fact, I think Amelia and I have found our new daily makeup routine. [Pretty In Pigment via Neatorama]

Scarlet Fever: 10 Celeb Red Lipstick Looks

There’s no mistaking red lipstick for low-maintenance makeup, but nothing pulls a look together quite like a pretty pop of crimson. It’s especially effective in the summer, because not only is it chic, it’s also distracting. If you’ve got a pair of sunglasses and a red lip color that you love, a full face of makeup is a non-factor. Whether you’re blonde, brunette, pale, olive- or dark-skinned, partial to pink, or obsessed with orange-leaning shades, no matter — cull some summer red lip inspiration from these 10 celebs.

How To Cover Under Eye Circles

Under-eye circles! They’re an ever-hot topic amongst ladiez, and it’s no wonder why — everybody has them, but pretty much nobody knows how to deal with them. There are a million so-called “remedies,” like eating less salt, drinking more water, drinking less alcohol, and getting more sleep, but why even try to change your lifestyle when you can just cover those bitches up like a pro? Or maybe you do all those things already, and your dark circles still won’t budge. Whatever the case, THERE IS A WAY OUT. Keep reading »
