Makeup Inspired By: The Legend Of Jack Frost (And The Freezing Reality Of Winter)

Makeup Inspired By: The Legend Of Jack Frost (And The Freezing Reality Of Winter)

This was originally supposed to be Makeup Inspired By: Frosty The Snowman, but upon realizing I looked like the evil snowman in Jack Frost, I decided to switch gears and do a look inspired by the legend of Jack Frost.

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.

Shopping Guide: The Best Holiday Beauty Sets Money Can Buy

Shopping Guide: The Best Holiday Beauty Sets Money Can Buy

The holidays are here! Beauty-wise, that means you can buy all sorts of fancy beauty gift sets for your friends but… let’s be honest, buying makeup as a gift seems kind of random and weird (and not dissimilar to buying them a gym membership). No matter, the real reason you’re buying this stuff is because “holiday beauty sets” is just another way of saying “all of your favorite beauty brands jammed their best and brightest into special palettes and fancy boxes at a lower price point than they would be otherwise.” In other words, it’s awesome. Here are our best bets. More »
