I moved to New York a little over one month ago. So far, I love my job, I like my apartment, I enjoy the food and, despite the many warnings I received prior, I have already made some very, very snazzy friends. In all honesty, the only thing that has been really stressful is the deep and unsettling feeling that I am not pretty enough to live here. More
Last week, we brought you the fun, grungy, hot makeup of the early nineties. Today, we are bringing something much, much worse to the table: multiple ugly trends from the 90s.
I’m talking Pamela Anderson lipliner, Baby Spice hair, metallic frosted shadow up to harsh-lined brows, unknowingly bad foundation lines, too much stick liner, so much bronzer and much, much more. Trying to figure out how to look like the worst version of your middle school self? Here it is, guys. There will be blood. Or, at the very least, glitter.
Internet, please don’t bring these back up when I run for city council, mmk? More
Like thousands upon thousands of other people, I have been wearing Ruby Woo by MAC for several years. I have worn it to parties, to school, to work, to interviews, to sets, to the gym (yes, I am one of those people who wears makeup to the gym, and I know — blah blah what’s the point blah blah).
I love wearing red lipstick out, but I have always been somewhat cautious of doing so when out with somebody. You know, romantically. Red lipstick on a first date feels weird. More
Step 1: Apply foundation and concealer in your normal color. Do not apply blackface. You will look like a jerk. More
The two wives of Don Draper have quite a bit in common. Both Megan and Betty have been married to the same
douchebag very attractive advertising executive guy, both are fascinating women with more intriguing personalities than many of the show’s other characters, both are absolutely stunning in appearance (and voice, though many of my friends have disagreed with me on that note). When it comes to their individual beauty looks, though, the two are very different.
For this Friday’s Makeup Tutorial, I’ll be using your votes to decide whose makeup I’ll do. Will it be Betty’s lovely, simple early- to mid-60s look or Megan’s more dramatic, late 60s makeup? More
When stars post their own photos on Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr of themselves supposedly not wearing makeup when they very clearly are, I am suspicious and also irritated. It just encourages the media to write pieces about how beautiful women are without makeup and faux-concern-trolling us to not do so.
For example, Demi Lovato’s recent “no makeup look” she posted on Facebook featured the caption, “Ladies, be brave today…take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!!” Yes, I forgot that it’s somehow cowardly for women to wear makeup and use filters, because the magazines, television shows and album cover photos she’s been in have absolutely not featured either of those things.

I love how candy shelves look right around Easter. Everything turns to these gorgeous pastel shades all wrapped up in tinted cellophane, and finally, it becomes acceptable to reply “strawberries and cream” when somebody asks what you’re wearing to a party.
Also, yes, that is Peep sushi. More
Here at The Gloss, we’re big fans of standout style from all over the globe. Mercedez-Benz China Fashion Week Fall 2013 is only halfway through, but there have already been so many remarkable and lovely things seen on the runways. From unique hairstyles to outfits I will most definitely try emulating come fall. To me, the most wonderful aspect so far has been the incredible makeup done by one of the world’s premier makeup artists, Mao Geping. More
I love red lipstick. Love it. It’s my go-to makeup because when I wear it, I can just put it on with a bit of mascara and pretend I’m going for a “fresh, modern” look when in reality, I am just so very lazy.
Knowing how to make your lipstick stay on longer is extremely important. Otherwise, you will look like Adam Devine in that scene of Workaholics where he does mushrooms. You do not want this. You do not want this at all. More
Huffington Post‘s celebrity section has a knack for being melodramatic, but when they posted a photo of Madonna walking through Midtown Manhattan with sunglasses and a hat on, the headline on the front page bordered on obnoxious: “BARELY RECOGNIZABLE.” More
Despite using beauty products on many a man, I never really think about doing makeup tutorials specifically for men despite there undoubtedly being an interest. Fortunately, Yoko Ono has got it covered. Well — sort of. She’s got it rainbowed, at the very least. More
If you feel like this, you wouldn’t be alone. Even Olivia Wilde has her doubts. More
