It’s Springtime! That means a big change to makeup routines: gone is the matte skin, the moody ’90s lip colors, the heavy mascara, the cat’s eyes. Instead, skin gets dewier, cheeks get highlighted, liner is going from black to electric blue and moss green and lips are getting real, real bold.
This is the first of a few Spring beauty features we’ve got planned for May–first, we’re focusing on the face. Ahead, our 20 favorite Spring beauty products for emphasizing your beautiful face, featuring foundations, blushes, highlighters, moisturizers, and masks from brands like Hourglass, Make Up For Ever, Kiehl’s, Tom Ford, Juara, Tarte, MAC and more… More
Lady Gaga is currently in London (doing regular person shit like fraternizing with Philip Treacy, as in the above shot she tweeted) and stepped out wearing smudges of minty green blush. This is pretty tame and minimal for Gaga, and in that context, I think it’s kind of pretty? …Maybe I’m just relieved she looks almost normal/she isn’t wearing penis shoes? More
Most men I know have at least one strong preference when it comes to makeup. For the most part, I think those preferences are incredibly fair and sane (my first boyfriend despised girls in too much mascara, a friend of mine hates red lipstick because it always seems to be coming off on a woman’s teeth). Now, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what other people think about your personal style and if you want to pile a pound of kohl on your face and run around screaming about how you’re rock’n roll Cleopatra reincarnated, you can do that and fuck anybody who tells you not to.

If that make-up artist was [insert your name here]. More
Commenter Lo pointed out in “Do You Wear More Neutrals or Colors?” that she hates ” that weird nude shade that makes everyone look naked but bizarrely wrinkly.” More
Yesterday, Kim Kardashian tried to claim that her newly-puffier lips were the result of the flu, to which I (a current Flu-Haver) called out as ridiculous. However, there are some ways that being sick can make you feel pretty. Or at least, if you’re Monica in that Friends episode where Chandler is too icked out by her being sick to have flu-sex with her, it can convince other people you’re sexy. Which is the same as being sexy, so whatever. More
Benefit Cosmetics has announced the launch of a new product: bella bamba blush, that claims to be 3D.
What is 3D about it, you might ask? Does it make your cheekbones appear removed from your face? Or does your entire face now appear in 4D, since it already was 3D? Or do you have to be wearing 3D glasses to find out? More
As a half-Scottish girl, I have a special place in my tartan-covered heart for plaid. And as a girl who loves make-up, I have another special place for M.A.C. So when the two of them combine, as they have for M.A.C.’s holiday line, my heart becomes full More
Everyone likes to have a little bit of fun, and even better to do it on a budget. Take a look at these fun things we found, all under $10. You really can’t go wrong.
I’m not usually that particular about my blush (eye makeup, that’s another story). However, recently I was introduced to Yves Saint Laurent Variation Blush and I fell in love with it. This blush uses a combination of matte and iridescent … More
Have you noticed how pasty our skin has become?? I guess it’s only natural with the winter we have had. But I have decided that since it is March, it has to be spring and I’m ready for some color … More
I prefer this kind of blush over the powdered varieties… it just looks more natural. I rub the color onto my fingertips and then apply to my cheeks and sort of blot it into place. Suddenly I look healthy!! Did … More
