Beauty How-To: Go Bronze Yourself

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I am Pale. Like, really pale, so pale it warrants a capital P for emphasis. I glow under black lights; practically all of my veins and arteries are peeking through my flesh braying for you to notice them; when I go out in public without…

Makeup Bag: 5 Subtle Glow-Boosting Bronzers

Exhibit A: I am not an expert on tanning, or anything even remotely having to do with tanning. My skin glows under those neon lights at the bowling alley. I am, however, sort of an expert (I flatter myself) on faking a healthy summer glow, when the last thing I am in actuality is healthy…

Makeup Bag: Multitasking Makeup For Effortless Summer Skin

It’s getting warmer out there … which means many things.

Orthodox Jewish Woman Sues Lancome On Faulty Foundation Claims

Makeup companies tout lofty, unrealistic claims all the time. These include, but are not limited to … uh, well, almost everything they say? Working with beauty products all the time (and, let’s be honest, in my spare time, too) means that I don’t expect much from promises of “all-day wear” and a “flawless complexion.” There…

Spring and summer makeup is all about color. On lips, on cheeks, on eyes, on nails — wherever you decide to put it, you’re going to want to make it pop. We can’t recommend wearing all of them at once, but there’s nothing like a slick of vibrant color somewhere on an almost-bare face to…

Kelly Osbourne Needs To Step Away From The Bronzer, Stat

I can’t be sure if Kelly Osbourne’s unfortunate mishap is the result of an overzealous bronzer application, or whether self-tanner is to blame — really, it could go either way.

Cover boy, Lord, American Psycho — Scott Disick is a man of many wonders.
