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.

Beauty Test Drive: Sinful Colors Nail Polish

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’…

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.

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.

Beauty How-To: Banish Undereye 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.

Beauty How-To: Keep It Matte

The cusp of summer is a good time to start talking about how to control oily skin. I mean, I talk about oily skin constantly, because I have it, so I am almost always complaining about it because such is my nature. But everyone gets a little bit greasy come summer, running around in the…

Blue Velvet: 10 Celeb Blue Eyeshadow Looks

Blue is the most intimidating of eyeshadow colors, given that it’s frequently associated with the terribleness double whammy that is both the poor style choices of the ’80s and Tammy Faye Bakker.

Beauty How-To: Keep Your Lipstick Looking Fresh

Would You Wear: This Graphic Liner Look?

My beauty mantra is pretty much “all eyeliner, all the time.” I live and die by my black Maybelline Line Stiletto (at present time, I own four) and a flicked cat eye, but I also dabble in creams, gels, pencils, and powders in any and every shade of the rainbow. But one thing I have…

Makeup Bag: World Goth Day Edition

Today, May 22nd, is World Goth Day. I didn’t know that this was a thing until I saw something about it somewhere on the Internet, uh, yesterday, but it somehow makes sense that it comes two days after my birthday. I may no longer be as creepy as I was in high school (which i…

Beauty How-To: Covering It Up

Skin woes: I am intimately familiar with them. I enjoyed the first two decades of my life with a face as smooth, pale, and unblemished as an egg shell.
