I guess it was only a matter of time until those lying liars at Lancome were going to be held accountable for their lies. Specifically, by one Orthodox Jewish woman who was really counting on Lancome’s “lasting perfection” make-up to get her through the Sabbath. More
Step 1: Apply foundation and concealer in your normal color. Do not apply blackface. You will look like a jerk. More
Something tells me there are going to be a whole lot of people bringing Jennifer Lawrence‘s new haircut to their stylists this month… More
The two wives of Don Draper have quite a bit in common. Both Megan and Betty have been married to the same
douchebag very attractive advertising executive guy, both are fascinating women with more intriguing personalities than many of the show’s other characters, both are absolutely stunning in appearance (and voice, though many of my friends have disagreed with me on that note). When it comes to their individual beauty looks, though, the two are very different.
For this Friday’s Makeup Tutorial, I’ll be using your votes to decide whose makeup I’ll do. Will it be Betty’s lovely, simple early- to mid-60s look or Megan’s more dramatic, late 60s makeup? More
Don’t tell anyone I told you this, but “beauty” stories can be kind of boring sometimes. I mean, how many different ways are there to tell someone to put their hair up in a ponytail, along with step-by-step instructions no one is ever going to follow because we all know how to put our hair in ponytails already? Then again, many beauty stories are really just an excuse to look at models looking beautiful, which depending on your outlook, you either find more or less fun than learning how to capture said beauty for yourself. Case in point: in an effort to keep their May beauty story lively, Marie Claire UK enlisted fashion plate/TV presenter/”cookie cutter hipster” Alexa Chung, ostensibly to illustrate the various “beauty techniques” they recommend, but really so we could all gaze upon close-ups of her stupid sexy face. Don’t believe me? Look at how basic all of these “tips” are. More
Last week a picture of Barbie without make-up surfaced that got a lot of attention. In it, she seemed really, really, really haggard. She also magically sprouted braces, which is something that has never happened to me when I’ve removed my make-up, but maybe happens to some people. Maybe some people also grow scales, and other crazy things, and those people would do well to keep their make-up on forever. More
Normally a professor saying that classes shouldn’t be held so early is a reason to celebrate, but not when it’s because he says his female students need to have more time to get all pretty and feminine. More
Last week, a reader commented on my last tutorial post about how to make your red lip last and asked, “Could you do some on applying foundation? Could you do one on make-up for oily skin?” Well, dear NeuroNerd, we absolutely can do that… More
This drag queen transformation by Ivy Winters is absolutely amazing, and makes me feel terrible about myself. More
I love how candy shelves look right around Easter. Everything turns to these gorgeous pastel shades all wrapped up in tinted cellophane, and finally, it becomes acceptable to reply “strawberries and cream” when somebody asks what you’re wearing to a party.
Also, yes, that is Peep sushi. More
Here at The Gloss, we’re big fans of standout style from all over the globe. Mercedez-Benz China Fashion Week Fall 2013 is only halfway through, but there have already been so many remarkable and lovely things seen on the runways. From unique hairstyles to outfits I will most definitely try emulating come fall. To me, the most wonderful aspect so far has been the incredible makeup done by one of the world’s premier makeup artists, Mao Geping. More
I love red lipstick. Love it. It’s my go-to makeup because when I wear it, I can just put it on with a bit of mascara and pretend I’m going for a “fresh, modern” look when in reality, I am just so very lazy.
Knowing how to make your lipstick stay on longer is extremely important. Otherwise, you will look like Adam Devine in that scene of Workaholics where he does mushrooms. You do not want this. You do not want this at all. More
