Sephora is a chocolate factory full of little delights to play with, and as such it has its own Violet Beauregards and Veruca Salts. Here are the 16 people you will meet at Sephora. More
I understand nothing about “tradition,” I think. But I do like crazy bright green eyeliner! More
This morning, I woke up with a zit in between my eyebrows. I am displeased. Here is how I am dealing with that displeasure: covering it up. More
Now, this may come as a surprise to some of you, but I’m not Angelina Jolie. Regardless, I would like to look like her–at least a little bit. More
In honor of Lifetime’s newest pageant show Kim of Queens, this week’s makeup tutorial is inspired by child beauty pageants. And how awful they are. More
If you’re going to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this weekend, you might as well have a fun look to go with it. I don’t even really like the series, but I’m so obsessed with the makeup, I just had to do a tutorial on it. 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
Want to do a classic Halloween costume staple but with a dramatic twist? This tutorial teaches you how to go from a subtle pumpkin to something far more dramatic (including sparkly green eyebrows)!

You saw this coming, didn’t you? If only I could turn back time… 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
Each week, I do a tutorial based on a movie coming out, a weird thought I’ve had or a book I’ve begun rereading. They’re typically not super practical for day-to-day wear, so today, I thought I would do something a little more helpful for all of our everyday lives: heatproof hair and makeup. Why? Because the part of the country I live in has been kind of melting my face off.
Well, that, and I sweat a lot more than normal people. 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
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.
