I am forever envious of Jessica Alba‘s uncanny ability to always look like she’s being professionally backlit (is she?). The woman just glows! Of course, I think her makeup might have a little something to do with it, too: pearly peach-brown shadow paired with a berry lip stain is a fresh look that’s a few steps above “neutral,” which is a welcome change from winter’s matte smoky eyes and dark wine lipsticks. If you, too, want to look like you’re perpetually illuminated by candlelight this holiday season, and I know you do, let’s break it down after the jump … Keep reading »
I feel pretty lucky that the most annoying beauty problem that I face on a regular basis is dark undereye circles and redness around my nose and chin. Those are easily fixable, if not particularly “sexy.” I mean, no one gets excited about going to shop for concealer! But with the Perk Up Artist set, a compact containing three complexion corrections, Benefit admirably tries. Keep reading »
The beauty industry is kind of like Apple insofar as just when you think you’ve got your hands on the latest and greatest product, there’s an even better one already on the horizon. (Which probably explains why I refuse to upgrade my iPhone or MacBook until that shit is busted. I just can’t keep up!) Take BB cream, for example: the super-popular “beauty balm” went from being an Asian favorite made only by overseas brands (and available only on Amazon by questionably-named Korean retailers with 14-21 days shipping) to a ubiquitous formula marketed by every brand from Dior to Maybelline. At first, it was hyped as the be-all, end-all combination of primer, foundation, and concealer. It sounds rad in theory, but the actual product left something to be desired, as they tend to leave an oily finish and come in, like, two colors tops. Keep reading »
Almie Rose is a versatile young lady. Want proof? Check out her informative transformation from regular ol’ Silverlake hipstar girl, replete with glasses and sweater, to lip glossed porn star. And you’ll want to do this, of course, because boys love porn stars.
“It’s called L’Artisan Parfumeur’s Mûre et Musc and I’ve been wearing it since I was 12. My dad wouldn’t let me wear makeup. ‘No daughter of mine is going to look like a whore!’ So my mom compromised with me by letting me get perfume. I got it because the bottle was purple and I didn’t even smell it. I’ve worn it so much to the point that I’ll get in the elevator to get into a club and I’ll get a call from one of my friends being like, ‘Are you at blah blah blah?,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah… why?’ And they’re like, ‘I smell you in the elevator!’ It’s so funny.
― I’m jealous of Kelly Osbourne, not least because her dad is Ozzy, but because she is basically defining my life dream: to finally find a perfume that’s obscure enough not to be worn by everyone and that I adore enough to be my signature scent for life. I am a total fragrance slut, but I love the idea that people will always associate that scent with you. If only I could stick to the same one for longer than a week! [MTV]
If I were Kristen Stewart, I would bid adieu to my sparkly boyfriend and put a ring on my makeup artist instead. Whether she’s in bright pink lipstick or this gorgeous smoked-out bronze eye, you can always bet on Bella Swan for the most enviable beauty looks (and, okay, arm candy) on any given red carpet. We’re obsessed with this pretty metallic look ― let’s take a closer look and break it down, after the jump. Keep reading »
There’s no such thing as “too perfect” in the age of Photoshop. Reconstruct eyes, mouths, noses, cheekbones, entire faces? Turn real, blemished human skin into smooth sculpted porcelain? Make full thighs slender, small breasts large, protruding bellies flat? Well, if you can do it, then why not? We’re so accustomed to the image of widespread flawlessness that permeates our pop culture-consumed social climate that our own physical errs seem, frankly, unnatural. If we could apply digital image-altering tools to our flesh-and-bone beings, would we ― and how? “Photoshop in Real Life,” a photo series by Hungarian artist Flóra Borsi, uses satire to explore the darker implications of vanity insofar as we vie to alter ourselves to meet unattainable standards. Check out the rest of the photos after the jump, and more of Flora’s work at her Facebook page. [PetaPixel] Keep reading »
