Shopping Guide: Our Favorite Eye Makeup For A Gorgeous Spring Look

Shopping Guide: Our Favorite Eye Makeup For A Gorgeous Spring Look

It’s Springtime! That means big changes 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 our third Spring beauty feature for May–the first (on face) is here, the second (on lips) is here. This week, we’re focusing on a surprisingly statement-ready category: the eyes.

Trend Forecast: All Kinds of Leather For Fall 2011

Trend Forecast: All Kinds of Leather For Fall 2011

Leather was all over the Fall 2011 runways this NYFW, but not in its typical outerwear/tough girl trousers incarnation. Instead, leather pieces were shown in an enormous variety: ladylike dresses, pencil skirts, and effortless tanks. After you’re done checking out the gallery and have (hopefully) gotten some good styling ideas, head over to Jennifer‘s round up of leather dresses (that won’t make you look like a biker). More »
