5 Fresh Cream Blushes For A Spring Flush Year-round

Year after year, the look for spring and summer involves a requisite “pop of color.” Lipstick, liner, nails, what have you, it’s all about looking fresh and “natural” with a touch of vibrant contrast. I know full well that the absolute last thing you want to do come rising temperatures is put on more makeup……

Beauty Test Drive: Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer

I’ve had my tube of Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer for awhile now, and for most of that time I’ve used it occasionally when I needed an extra layer of coverage for under my eyes or to conceal redness around my nose. I liked it a lot, but it probably wouldn’t have made it into my deserted…

5 Tried-And-True Face Powders For Effortless Airbrushed Skin

Of all the beauty products in the world, powder probably gets the worst rap. Just the name conjures images of chalky, pasty texture and little puffs and getting it all over your clothing… but it doesn’t have to be that way! Not anymore, at least — I can’t vouch for my grandmother’s generation, but the…

Beauty Breakdown: The Perfect Cat Eye Every Time

I’ve suffered from depression for much of my life. It’s generally well-controlled, thanks to a carefully calibrated hybrid of therapy (which I’ve admittedly been slacking on) and psychiatric drugs, but when I’m feeling down about something or other, I find that my usually-rational brain takes it upon itself to think terrible, terrible thoughts. Honestly, I…

Yoko Ono Wants To Give You Metaphorical Makeup Tips

When Yoko Ono says “makeup tips,” you pretty much have to assume going into it that there will be very little makeup involved. How much makeup, exactly? None. Zero makeup. In fact, I have no idea what kind of “tips” these are. But I’m sure they’re good, useful ones, whatever they are. “Take rainbow pill…

Mama June’s Tip On How To Be More “Beautimous”

“You don’t have to do a lot of makeup or whatever. Just take care of yourself, take pride in how you look. There are some days I look homely like hell, but beautimous comes within yourself and if you’re happy with yourself, that’s all that matters.”
— I’ll admit that Mama June from “Here…

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 experiences we won’t endure… even in exchange…

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 the…

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 news.

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 give…

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 (unless there’…

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…
