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.
Usually the Spring runways are all bold lips and pristine faces; while that will certainly be true IRL, there are a lot of eye-focused runway looks you can also replicate at home. Maybe the pink on pink craziness up there at Donna Karan is too much for you, but incorporating Spring’s big colors–blue, green, yellow, and pink–is easier than you think.
We have been testing LOTS of shadows and palettes these past few weeks and ahead you’ll find some of our favorites from Hourglass, NARS, tarte, MAC, Make, Shu Uemura, Urban Decay, Make Up For Ever, Tom Ford and more… More
One has to wonder that when a fashion magazine puts such expectations on a model’s future if it’s almost as if they’re jinxing them. Perhaps, sealing the deal on their demise. More
Ivanka Trump is in trouble with Derek Lam. The socialite/heiress turned businesswoman has a few shoes in her Ivanka Trump Footwear Collection that are almost exact copies of Lam’s shoes. So his company is suing her. More
It’s a little dreary in New York City today but the sun’s been coming through intermittently lately and we’re beginning to become convinced that Spring is in sight. What with Styleite calling that pretty, delicate Dolce & Gabbana eyelet dress this season’s Balmain gold mini, we got to thinking about eyelet. It’s a nice balance between sexy and sweet (as ladymags might say) but it also breathes well (duh) and is perfect for the outdoors when it gets a little less dreary… More

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
Now that we’ve come out of our NYFW haze and adequately re-hydrated, we’ve begun the project of sifting through hundreds of images from the runways and attempting to parse what will stick and what won’t for Fall 2011. That said, let me be frank with you: More
Last week, Derek Lam cryptically mentioned he was interested in doing a lower-priced diffusion line with a retailer “like Topshop.” Well, according to WWD, it’s happening. …only not with H&M or Uniqlo as you might expect, but instead with online auction house eBay, where you can More
Derek Lam’s fashions are generally elegant and sophisticated. So it was great to see him break out the colors and the fun in his Spring 2010 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. There was no general color palette or underlying theme. … More
