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

This is the first of a few Spring beauty features we’ve got planned for May–first, we’re focusing on the face. Ahead, our 20 favorite Spring beauty products for emphasizing your beautiful face, featuring foundations, blushes, highlighters, moisturizers, and masks from brands like Hourglass, Make Up For Ever, Kiehl’s, Tom Ford, Juara, Tarte, MAC and more… 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 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
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
BO’s vampire smash True Blood collaborated with Tarte on a makeup line available exclusively through Sephora. The colors were developed by the show’s makeup artist Brigette A. Myre (who also won an Emmy perfecting Buffy’s lipgloss) so it’s pretty cool they got someone involved with the actual look of the show (it takes less to be considered a “collaboration” these days). The collection boasts More

Brighten up-late-night-before bleary eyes by applying this nude-pink liner in the corners of the eyes, then apply it anywhere on the face you need a little ‘well-rested’ glow. For some reason I haven’t been able to sleep properly for the … More
I hate to admit, I really didn’t expect “smoky eyes” to still be around. I thought for sure that they would be replaced with a new look for fall, but it is not to be. Tarte cosmetics is offering a … More
