It’s rare that Amanda Seyfried — she of the rapturously ethereal angel/alien features, porcelain complexion, and long, thick, never-dyed flaxen hair — ever misses the mark on a beauty look. (I mean, don’t you think it would take some serious, bad-intentioned effort for a makeup artist to fuck up a face like that?) Time and time again, Amanda has sported the kind of makeup that makes us go, “That. On my face. Now.” This look from the Hollywood premiere of her new film, “Lovelace”? I would sell my soul. And yeah, I’m putting that in writing. (That said, I sincerely doubt that the price on my soul would be very high, but the principle stands.) The good news for me and my (affordable!!!!) soul is that, despite looking like a million, trillion bucks, this shimmery eye makeup is shockingly, almost LAUGHABLY, easy to achieve. Let’s get a closer look, and then I’ll break it down… Keep reading »

Chronic makeup-to-bed-wearer here. As such, I read with interest a new, very scientific study undertaken by Anna Pursglove, a writer over at the Daily Mail, who spent a month wearing her makeup to bed (and basically not washing her face) to see what might happen.
Short answer: It’s not pretty. Keep reading »
Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover. The worst part? This happens every single freakin’ time I go to Sephora. I really should know better by now, but after polling the rest of the Frisky staffers, I’ve realized that Sephora psychosis is a universal experience. We all must accept that there are certain things that will happen every time you visit this Mecca of Makeup, no matter what your intentions or how much you try to resist. They are as follows… Keep reading »

There’s a time and a place for a smoked-out eye or a crimson lip — hell, there’s even a time and a place for both at the same time. But even celebrities need to take a hiatus from elaborate, show-stopping makeup once in a while and pare things down for a more natural look, often to equally arresting results. Beautiful people will be beautiful, whether they’re in full-face mode or not! We know full well that a natural makeup look does not necessarily translate to a less makeup look, but there’s definitely a spotlight on skin and features rather than played-up color or trendiness. We love the low-key looks on these 10 celeb ladies…
Bug bites, sunburn, greasy hair, acne, dreaded razor burn from so much shaving — these problems aren’t pretty, but they sure as hell happen, and none of us are immune. These 5 remedies for common summertime beauty ailments may not be the most glamorous of products, nor will they look all that attractive on top of your dresser, but hey, they get the job done!

Our dear friend Almie Rose is back and with a new drunken makeup tutorial for how to look like “Mad Men”‘s resident married upstairs apartment hussy Sylvia Rosen. You want to look like Sylvia, right? With the lips, and the eyeshadow, and the potentially explosive extramarital affair with Don Draper? Well, regardless, Almie has a thing or two to teach you about a thing or two.
Oh also, Almie has a book out! What do you do when your ex leaves you for his A-list actress ex girlfriend? How do you land a musician boyfriend? What’s it like to make a total jackass of yourself when you meet that actor you’ve had a crush on for years? What would When Harry Met Sally… look like in 2013? Am I hungry? These questions and more are answered and explored by Almie Rose in I Forgot To Be Famous, essays and how-to’s about dating, relationships, living in Los Angeles, and how they all crash into each other, like the car chase scene in the mall in the Blues Brothers movie, which she hasn’t seen, but is not at all opposed to. I Forgot to Be Famous will be available for pre-order tomorrow and on-sale on Monday!
Adele is pretty loyal to her signature glamorous, ’60s-inspired beauty look — the chanteuse is rarely spotted without voluminous hair, flawless skin, a serious cat eye, and a bright red or nude lip. A more pared-down “natural” look is not one we’re accustomed to seeing on her… But now that we’ve seen it, we can’t imagine why she doesn’t wear it more often! The milkmaid-style braids are a massive departure from her trademark beehive, but she wears them well. Perhaps being a new mom has Adele interested in a more low-maintenance look, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s in New York right now, where the current temperature is one million degrees. Regardless, so pretty! (I would also add that this is total summer hair inspiration, but those braids are complicated, goddamnit!)
Forget the drawer, clear out space in your makeup bag if your man is moving in. According to a recent survey of a thousand millennial-age men, guys have officially become more comfortable adopting the grooming habits of women. As many as 60 percent of men now use women’s skincare products, with 14 percent okaying nail polish, 18 percent foundation, and 12 percent eyeliner.
We’re not sure whether to thank Jared Leto, or Captain Jack Sparrow for this change of heart.
