There are a few things that every makeup-lovin’ lady needs to have in her arsenal. It’s sort of like the difference between romantic prospects and friends: bold lipsticks and punchy eyeshadows come and go, but your Holy Grail products are forever. The perfect foundation that matches your complexion exactly and makes it look flawless; the perfect concealer that magically causes every blemish or imperfection you might have to vanish on the spot; the perfect neutral shadow that makes your eyes look bigger and brighter… and of course, the perfect go-to lip color.

Generally referred to as “my lips but better” (or MLBB), the ideal go-to lip color does just that — it suits your skin tone and flatters your face better than a brighter, trendier shade, and it imparts color and impact in a way that a clear lip balm just doesn’t. You could also refer to this type of lip color as “nude,” but it definitely isn’t the generic pale, corpse-y beige that comes to mind. It’s your nude, and it’s different for everyone. So let’s get to finding yours! Keep reading »

Kelly Osbourne Needs To Step Away From The Bronzer, Stat

Choosing A Bronzer
Which bronzer is right for you? Read More »

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. But Kelly usually has such lovely fair skin, and it goes so well with her glamorous, edgy vibe… As a lifelong Extra Pale, I always feel disappointed when a fellow fog-dweller turns to the bronze side. Why do some celebrities have such an aversion to their natural skin tones? There’s nothing wrong with being pale; it just helps people find you better in the dark! I’ve always fancied myself a bit of a human lantern, personally. Oh yeah, and above are some other celeb tanning disasters…

How frequently do you clean your makeup brushes? If you feel at all ashamed about your answer to that question, stop, because mine is worse. That’s right: despite applying makeup almost daily, using various brushes to do so, and spending approximately one-third of my overall life hours thus far fretting over the quality of my skin, I wash my brushes, on average, never. Sure, maybe I’ll do it half-heartedly once every few (read: six) months, but aside from that… nope. I rule! But since it’s come time to honor all things Spring Cleaning, I’ve decided to swallow my laziness whole and work on getting in the habit of taking care of my belongings. Especially ones as grime-accumulating and bacteria-breeding as makeup brushes. Here’s a super-easy 3-step program for cleaning out those bristles once and for all, or at least just for the next 2-4 weeks. Keep reading »
