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.

I would never head out and about on the town with this look unless I was attending a holiday costume party (note to friends: please start hosting these ASAP), regardless, I might as well have blue eyebrows every once-in-a-while. More »

10 Under $20: We Tried The Best Bright Eyeliners On A Budget!

Love bright, bold eyeliner? Me, too. The only thing that bums me out is when you spend money on something you think will be one gorgeous color, but it turns out to be a completely different shade despite the packaging and (possibly very obscure) name.

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 »

Makeup Inspired By: Slimy, Slippery, Splashy Snails

Makeup Inspired By: Slimy, Slippery, Splashy Snails

When I was a kid, I used to love beetles and snails and all things colorful that crawled. Nowadays, I’m one of those people who becomes hilariously frantic when arthropods are anywhere near me, but I still love snails.

This week, I wanted to pay tribute to our lovely little friends who leave pretty trails behind with their slime. This was kind of a weird tutorial to do since it uses so many different shades, but I wanted to play up the blended, multi-hued nature of these guys, as well as the aforementioned slime trails.

Perhaps not Gail the Snail so much, though… More »

Shopping Guide: 25 Excellent Ways To Wear Oxblood Right Now

If you’ve been paying much attention to the fashion press lately, you probably know all about oxblood. 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 »
