Makeup Inspired By: Lindsay Lohan’s Dramatically Apathetic Look In The Canyons

Makeup Inspired By: Lindsay Lohan's Dramatically Apathetic Look In The Canyons

Much has been said about Lindsay Lohan in Bret Easton Ellis’ The Canyons. Despite a lot of hype, some obnoxious interviews and a pretty fantastic trailer, the film itself has received primarily awful reviews — even from the actors themselves. However, I plan on seeing it because, despite all her idiocy, irresponsibility and the tragedy that was Liz & Dick, I still want to like LiLo in films again.

Personally, I love her look in The Canyons. It’s got that dark, apathetic Los Angeles air to it that’s pervasive throughout all of Ellis’ books. So, here’s my attempt at recreating that look. More »

In this tutorial, I’ll show you just two: the first is somewhat subtle (meaning you can totally wear it to a daytime get-together) while the latter is a bit over-the-top. The best thing to do is experiment to figure out which brights you love and which shades you think look like gangrene with your skin tone. More »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Eyeshadow Is Here

Fifty Shades Of Grey Eyeshadow Is Here

Recently, we were in an elevator with two women discussing Fifty Shades of Grey. One had finished it, we deduced, and the other was nearing the end. The one still torturing her brain admitted she’d been skipping pages, saying, “It just gets so repetitive. They keep doing the same stuff over and over.” To which her companion shook her head gravely, like fucking Socrates, and said, “You have to read between the lines.” This destroyed us for five solid minutes.
