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
Also, that color would be flattering on exactly no one. More
We’re wild about dark red lips. More
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.
So, I decided to swatch a bunch of them on my eyes in order to see which offered the best colors! From deep magentas to iridescent purples to aquamarines, this guide has got you covered — all under $20! More
I’ve moved five times in five years, and every time I end up sore, faint, and feeling like I never want to see another human soul for as long as I live. More
Who the are these companies marketing to? Definitely not the women who would buy their products. More
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
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
Giant beauty wonderland Sephora is launching an impossibly enormous line of nail polishes this fall, and if you have nails that you sometimes paint, you should be peeing your pants. The line, called Formula X, will include over 200 polishes and will include nail treatments. More
Sophia Coppola got to wear it a month ago. More
Earlier this week, I asked you all to answer one simple question: would you rather see a makeup tutorial for Betty Draper or Megan Draper? Two Draper wives go in, one Draper wife comes out. But who will it be?
Drumroll, please… More
The Oscars happened this weekend and we’re going to spend all week picking up the pieces. After furiously parsing the red carpet yesterday, we’ve decided to try our hand at replicating the best beauty looks–namely, the perfect faces of Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence, Salma Hayek and more. Wish us luck! More
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
In Pick Of The Week, I highlight a nifty fashion and/or beauty item that I’ve discovered in my travels. More
