What We Missed: Sexy Language Barriers, Going Bare-Faced & Bieber’s Dead Hamster Trends On Twitter

I'm baaaaaack! Did you miss me? In this week's episode of What We Missed, I break out my Google Translation app in order to discuss the perks of having a major language barrier when romancing someone. For example, you're forced to really listen to each other. Also, we reflect on the death of Justin Bieber's hamster, mostly to mourn the downfall…

11 Makeup Counter Dilemmas That Drive Us Bananas (In GIFS)

The makeup counter is where we flock to when we want to try on a new shade of red lipstick, get a whiff of a celebrity perfume, and most importantly, score tons of freebies! But as priceless as our wild encounters with the makeup girl or guy are, there are some experience…

Melissa Murphy, The Makeup Artist Behind Those Amazing Porn Star Before-And-Afters, Speaks Out

Makeup artist Melissa Murphy's series of mesmerizing side-by-side photos documenting the transformation of bare-faced everygirls into bombshell porn stars stood out as fascinating for a few reasons — namely, the social commentary aspect, in which we're forced to question everything we think we know about what porn stars are "supposed" to look like. But…

5 Wearable Eye Looks From The Spring 2013 Runway (And How To Get Them!)

The fashion world operates on an entirely different calendar than the rest of the world. Fashion is always one season ahead — for example, as we're entering spring of 2013, the industry has just observed autumn 2013 — so when the season actually rolls around, we have to go back in Fashion Time and sync…

6 Spring Lip Colors We Can’t (And Won’t!) Wait To Wear

Kick off your boots, fuzzy socks, and leg warmers (um, do people wear those?): spring is coming, and soon. Okay, so that may be a little bit of wishful thinking on my part, and there may or may not have been a snowstorm less than a week ago. But still, spring is well on it…

Watch Out Everybody, Smoky Eyes And Winged Eyeliner Are Hot New Trends!

One of the most ridiculous things about both the beauty and fashion industries is their mutual insistence upon pitching literally everything at one point or another as a "hot new trend." The New York Times Style section is particularly notorious for doing so: over the summer, they somehow mistook women having bangs for actual…

Poll: Do You Use The Same Beauty Products As Your Mom?

I inherited a lot of things from my mother (for starters: high cheekbones, bullheadedness, a taste for afternoon naps and all things fermented grape), but my love of beauty products wasn't one of them. It's actually more likely that my propensity towards packed bathroom cabinets and overflowing shower ledges was directly derived from my father,…

Whoa, Porn Stars Without Makeup Look Kinda Like Regular People!

It's not exactly a secret that celebrities wear enough makeup to suffocate a salamander, and that we all freak out when they're photographed without. Sans fards! Natural look! A sign of real human being-ness unsullied by airbrush foundation and caulking sealant! But you know who else wears a ton of makeup, and we never…

This Is Exactly What Happens To Me When I Put My Eyeliner On Each Morning

True story: When my boyfriend first asked me to be his girlfriend, I told him I would on one condition -- he was obligated to let me know whenever I had unsightly, eyeliner-related panda bear eyes. I'd spent too many days of my life unintentionally walking around with dark circles around my eye thanks to…

There’s A ’90s Kid In The Product Development Department At Estée Lauder

I have only the fondest memories of Lip Smackers Dr. Pepper lip balm, which I do believe I still harbor at the bottom of a Hello Kitty purse somewhere, but there's a special place in my heart for the metal roller-ball applicators of yore. (They share rent in that "special place" with all things Lisa…

Beauty Test Drive: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Or, "why you should spend $20 on an eyelash curler." Because really, as a beauty editor, my job isn't just to write about products; it's to make you want to buy the products I write about. This is why I straight-up refuse to write in any capacity about anything I don't genuinely love (unle…

Beauty Breakdown: Facial Contouring 101

What is this "contouring" that makeup artists and celebrities speak of? I see it all the time — that subtle shadow right under their cheekbones, lifting their faces, enhancing their features, and overall making them look more beautiful than they already are. How in the world do you do it, and what products do you…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s Fakeup Concealer

Concealer is one of those beauty products that isn't the least bit fun to purchase. It's a lot more exciting to go straight to the eyeshadows and lip glosses, you know? But the un-fun stuff like foundation and concealer is what someone with, say, redness around their T-zone uses to get an unblemished palette, so…

This Week In Style: Moncler Boss Accused Of Stealing Salvador Dali Painting

Well, that's one way to get fired: Phivos Lampros Istavrioglou (what a name), the head of international relations at French fashion brand Moncler, has been accused of one major art heist. He was arrested at JFK airport for the theft of 'Cartel Des Don Juan Tenorio 1949,' a $150,000 Salvador Dali painting (shown), from a…

Vivienne Westwood Turns Her Models Into Cartoon Girls

Legendary punk designer Vivienne Westwood has a flair for the colorful, the dramatic, the outlandish, the shocking, the absurd… but certainly not the tame. Nor the shy, for that matter: everything Vivienne touches, from her flaming orange hair to her punk-infused collections, is intended to Make A Statement. It's kind of her MO. For…

Beauty Breakdown: Kate Mara

"I'm in love with Kate Mara's look from the 'House of Cards' premiere. How can a mere mortal like me score her otherworldly glowy skin and gorgeous eyes?" -- Jennifer Oh, a Mara looking freakishly flawless; what else is new? No matter how far I zoom in on this photo, I cannot find a single blemish.

This Week In Style: John Galliano Rumored To Replace Oscar De La Renta

Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta,…

Beauty Cues: The Whimsical Witches Of “Oz The Great And Powerful”

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you there. I'm just having sensory overload and perhaps some minor hyperventilation after seeing three of my faves all together on the red carpet yellow brick road. Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz are the stars of "Oz The Great and Powerful," as the Wicked…

Beauty Cues: Jessica Chastain’s Updated Black Liner Look

As a general rule, I shy away from black eyeliner on the lower lid; when used around the entirety of the eye, its eye-shrinking abilities are unrivaled. The only people who can pull it off, in my opinion, are those who are all-around ungodly beautiful (Angelina Jolie!) and those who have a naturally bigger, rounder…

10 Lip Colors That Won’t Scare Off Your (Or Any) Guy

As the kind of girl who leaves red lipstick stains on everything, everywhere, I have scared off more than a few men (and probably small children) in my day. There's nothing more alarming to a guy than a slick red mouth that pretty much guarantees it's going to end up all over you. Any other…
