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 our third Spring beauty feature for May–the first (on face) is here, the second (on lips) is here. This week, we’re focusing on a surprisingly statement-ready category: the eyes.
Usually the Spring runways are all bold lips and pristine faces; while that will certainly be true IRL, there are a lot of eye-focused runway looks you can also replicate at home. Maybe the pink on pink craziness up there at Donna Karan is too much for you, but incorporating Spring’s big colors–blue, green, yellow, and pink–is easier than you think.
We have been testing LOTS of shadows and palettes these past few weeks and ahead you’ll find some of our favorites from Hourglass, NARS, tarte, MAC, Make, Shu Uemura, Urban Decay, Make Up For Ever, Tom Ford and more… More
Ah, Coachella, a time for (particularly) clueless rich people to dress up like their idea of a ’60s bohemian and enjoy the latest major label chart-topping tunes from the comfort of cushy VIP pens.
Normally, we have a hard line about not making fun of off-duty (non red carpet) famous people, but most of these press-hungry jackasses relish Coachella as an opportunity to wear their cool poor person costume: a floppy hat, short shorts, shitloads of fringe, a leather headband, a $2000 handbag and–the best accessory–a big, dumb peace sign.

As we mentioned, the holidays are a really awesome time to buy shit ostensibly for your friends but, really, score some beauty deals for yourself. Fragrance is no different, with all kinds of fancy brands rolling out perfume sets–usually in keepsake boxes, with moisturizers and showers gels and bells and whistles, etc–of all the scents you’ve been meaning to pick up anyway.

The British Fashion Awards took place last night and the big winners were Stella McCartney (Designer Brand Award, Designer of the Year), Cara Delevingne (Model Award) and Alexa Chung (British Style Award, three years running). Here’s the model-studded red carpet, featuring them and many more. More
The MTV EMAs occurred last night! What that means is basically all the same mini dresses, questionable “edgy” haircuts and dumb shoes as a regular MTV red carpet, only with a bunch of people we hardly recognize! Let’s focus on those we do–Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys and more ahead. More
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been attracted to handbags that have all manner of hardware on them. More
Though perhaps it’s just more of a traditional puppy face? More
You know, Dov, we all have connections to the government… in our head. More
Stella McCartney unveiled her newly designed uniforms for the UK’s Olympic and Paralympic teams today, and to judge from some of the internet comments I’ve been reading, she made them out of clubbed baby seals dipped in radioactive shit. But while I think they are absolutely fine for something you wear while playing sports, it’s fun to take the piss out of things just for the heck of it. Can I be more ridiculous than the people who are sincerely angry at her? I don’t know, but I’m sure going to try. (I’m sorry, Stella.) More
It’s almost summer (…sort of) and that means that you’ll soon want to abandon anything with a leather strap that will inexplicably make your shoulder sweat in favor of something lighter. More
Since bringing you proof of the bonafide trend post-NYFW, I realized that if designers like Doo.Ri, Cynthia Rowley, and Cushnie et Ochs are getting all up in that leather, then maybe I can pull it off too. Here are my reasons to start loving the leather dress.
The much-discussed Stella McCartney “thin dress” that Kate Winslet wore two different versions of last year is back. Both Phillip Lim and Victoria Beckham took the idea and ran with it in their winter/fall 2012 shows this fashion week. That means it is officially A Thing. More
