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

Last night, Michelle Obama wore an absolutely stunning Jason Wu gown for the Inaugural Ball. The dress moved in all the right ways, her hair looked picture perfect and whomever her makeup artist was last night deserves a serious high five for keeping her looking fresh yet not overdone. Basically, she looked totally, drop-dead gorgeous. More
We’re always surprised by which designer collaborations cause a stir and which don’t: Versace for H&M inspired mass hysteria, Jason Wu for Target sold out in five minutes, but we browsed Giambattista for Macy’s and it was downright serene. Anyway, we’re really surprised that people aren’t losing their minds with excitement for Marni‘s H&M collection. By which we mean, it looks awful pretty. Here’s some campaign shots, which have that dreamy, lush suburbia quality that Sofia Coppola always seems to be after. Coppola, by the way, was originally said to be shooting the campaign, but FGR says these were shot by Markus Jans, which we assume means Coppola’s shooting television spots. Liu Wen and Imogen Poots star. More
“Dark and moody” go the unsurprising fall color trends at NYFW: covering the runways were muted shades of midnight, plum, and the reigning combination of black and blue. …But just when you thought it was all very bleak and Fall-appropriate… bright, fuck-off, electric reds came down the runway. Absolutely no one had his finger on this pulse better than Jason Wu, whose collection was almost exclusively shadowy shades of blue, wine and blinding red. Here are the colors to keep your eyes on for Fall 2012. More
Jason Wu‘s capsule collection for Target launched this weekend and nearly sold out all over the country. Maybe it was the bright dresses, the ladylike tops… or these two assholes. More
