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 the second of a few Spring beauty features we’ve got planned for May–the first is here. Right now we’re focusing on that tried and true warm weather character: the statement-y Spring lip.
Spring 2013 runways from Jason Wu to Prada (that’s Kati Nescher on the Prada runway up there) showed a variety of bold lips in shades from saturated pinks to electric corals and bright reds. Don’t be afraid, though! While bold lipsticks can be intimidating, a minimal, fresh face and a bright lip is easy to wear and really flattering.
We have been testing LOTS of lipsticks and stains these past few weeks and ahead you’ll find some of our favorites from NARS, Tarte, MAC, Hourglass, Make Up For Ever, Tom Ford and more… More

The Oscars happened this weekend and we’re going to spend all week picking up the pieces.

Wish us luck! More

The dark, wine-ish shade of red has been dominating runways for a season or two now, at Gucci, YSL, Valentino, Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Acne, Miu Miu and more (it’s also all over red carpets, especially as beauty). For those of you who can’t go out and drop a few grand on a trend-straddling McQueen frock coat, though, we’ve got a few more affordable options (and some aspirational pieces to oogle too). More
So we’ve reached August. That means two things: 1) mounting dry cleaning bills because there is sunscreen smeared on everything we own and 2) accumulating bug bites. Oh, it also means that–depending on where you are–it’s either really hot and dry or really, really hot and humid. Therefore, it may be time to ramp up your skincare regime (and tone down your makeup). Show your face a little love with these gentle, exfoliating, or hydrating skin products and a few indispensable summer beauty tools. We can’t help the bug bites, though. More
I have to confess: I get way more excited about lingerie than fashion. And a line like LA PERLA? Well, that just transcends all others. “LA PERLA is known for stunning, one-of-a-kind lingerie,” say Michael Pierce, of MUA of Hourglass … More
