Guys, I think I’m going to do one of those elegant, glamorous, “this was an excuse to wear fake fur and jewels” costumes this Halloween. I’m gonna be a walking cliche, also known as A 23-Year-Old Gal Wearing A Pseudo-Old Hollywood Costume. More
Alice + Olivia is known for its beautiful, lighthearted nature. Stacey Bendet‘s collections are always fresh, always fun and always pretty — and have perfectly coordinated beauty looks to accompany the clothes. Earlier this week, I went backstage at its show to check out the hair and makeup looks so I could share them with all you wonderful Glossers!
PLUS: Lots of gorgeous backstage pics! More
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.
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
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
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
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
As you may have deduced from my 2000 word BB Cream exegesis, I have tried dozens of different versions over the past few weeks. This has involved many lunchtime trips to Sephora, many beleaguered publicist friends I have harassed for samples, much slathering of more suspicious products on EIC Jennifer Wright and a blemish or two. I’m not kidding, though, I think I tested every BB Cream available in the states. These are the ones that stuck out. More
Some cursory internet research revealed, quite helpfully, that BB Cream is 1) like foundation, but not; 2) like tinted moisturizer, but not, and 3) Korean… but actually German. Which, obviously, illuminates nothing. More

I love mini make up samples. They’re cute, super portable, and don’t ever leave me with a huge amount of concealer that isn’t quite my shade. Birchbox’s monthly deliveries offer a whole personalized collection of beauty product samples mailed to you each month, without the hassle of explaining your epic journey to find the perfect eye shadow to someone at Sephora, hoping they’ll take pity on you and slip you a few mini-pots.

Fall/Winter may be the most exciting season for fashion, but it wreaks absolute havoc on your beauty routine. Just when you start thinking cool coats, boots and sweaters can provide all you need when the temperature drops…the cold air kicks in. Suddenly, your skin’s all flaky, your lips are chapped, your cuticles are dry, you’ve got hat head from that supposedly fashionable knit cap and, yup, you still have to slather yourself in sunscreen even though it’s dark before you leave the office.

The holidays are all about friends, family and… spending money like water. No matter how hard you try, you’re always astonished/horrified by the amount of money you burn this time of year. Lucky, cosmetics offer an easy out–many of the most opulent designer lipsticks, for example, hover around $40. If you plan on gifting some loved ones, here’s a guide with lots of options (in lots of universally flattering shades) but really, you should just be gifting yourself something nice before the money runs out. Good luck! More
