From the transformative, acne-covering makeup tutorial to leopard eyeshadow, see which beauty videos have garnered the most eyes.
It’s also worth noting that Alan Cumming goes nuts for nuts.
It’s long been our belief that if it’s too good to be try, it probably is — especially in domains of fashion and beauty. So imagine our skepticism upon learning that there’s a pill that can weatherproof our skin.
We can’t think of a better time to experiment with unconventional lip colors than a snow day, particularly when you might still have some Halloween leftovers that certainly shouldn’t go to waste.
Okay, it’s All Hallows Eve. You don’t yet have a costume. All the ones at Ricky’s are now 30 to 50% off, but you’d rather just pay the full $64.99 + tax than get in a physical altercation with a 16-year-old over the last Sexy Aviator outfit. But fear not! If you’d rather keep you pants on tomorrow, you can do absolutely paralyzingly terrifying things using only makeup and your own face.
This week we’re grabbing our figurative shovels and heading to the digital graveyard of Spring 2014 fashion month to bring the season’s most outré looks back to life.
Halloween has many things in common with fashion week — the crazy outfits, the obsessive Instagramming, the alcohol and sugary snack foods that usurp the role of nutritious meals. They’re also both great times to experiment with unconventional beauty trends.
Uniqlo is providing us with a sizable amount of drive to sacrifice a few Z’s and step up our hair game.
A red lip is a go-to for many, and typically yields such glamorous results that it’s worth the constant fuss and compact mirror checks. This said, we wouldn’t mind not having to worry that our rouge has smudged or wiped completely off on our Starbucks cup at work or champagne glass in the evening. Enter Teen Vogue’s Beauty and Health director Elaine Welteroth, who along with DJ Chelsea Leyland, set out to impart pearls of wisdom on how to achieve a classic red lip that will stay in place.
Real or faux, we saw heaps of hair on New York’s runways this week — and we can say confidently, we’ve never been more motivated to steer clear of the snooze button and spend an extra hour in the morning teasing, gelling, curling, or braiding to achieve one of the following elaborate coifs.
Getting a good look at the clothes is hard enough with all the rogue iPads and past-capacity venues, so as you can imagine, the most stunning details often slip past unnoticed on the runway. They don’t, however, slip through the cracks of Instagam, not when the ‘no social media’ signs backstage are so shamelessly ignored and the best model selfies so tirelessly #regrammed.
We love summer for many reasons, one of them being that it’s totally kosher to slack off with your beauty routine. ‘Dewy skin’, ‘bed hair’ and ‘au naturale beauty’ have a pretty sweet ring to them for those of us who prefer to spend our mornings pushing snooze. But unfortunately ‘dewy’ and ‘oily’ are sometimes a little too close for comfort, and the hot weather can do worse things to your hair than make it temporarily bloated. Josie Feria is Director of Spa Operations at the Fontainebleau’s Lapis Spa in Miami. She told us all about when to fight the frizz and when to go with summer’s flow, and let us in on some DIY recipes that replicate the fancy ones offered at Lapis.
In the Styleite offices we showed our support of gay marriage through all things rainbow. Yesterday Queen Elizabeth did it for the Brits by putting her signature to a new same-sex marriage bill. God knows she needed something to do while waiting for the royal baby. Now street style photographer/jealousy harvester Hanneli Mustaparta is showing her support by doing what she does best: Spotting new trends, giving them an unexpected twist and just generally looking phenomenal.
Drinking lots of water and always removing makeup at night? Not that spiel again. We prefer when stars just straight-up admit their beauty routines are taxing, and when they hit the red carpet, we’d prefer them to flash us a leg and a gaudy stripper heel.
Mischa Barton never really disappoints us when it comes to style and beauty. But, she may have missed the mark this time.
Now that men can buy crop tops and walk for womenswear, it seems the sartorial gender gap is finally being bridged. But so far there’s been something missing. No longer thanks to Tom Ford, who has designed a range of
makeup high-performance grooming products for guys.
Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm has illustrated what humans might look like in the future, with the help of Dr. Alan Kwan, a computational geneticist from Washington University. Lamm says the drawings are based on “one possible timeline,” in which humans control biology to suit our needs — an idea that is only half as frightening as the resulting imagery. Basically, humans are going to look like Princess Jasmine mixed with a Tim Burton character. Which is to say, our eyes are going to be freaking huge, but we’ll have a decent tan.
At a wise 21-years-old, Georgia May Jagger does not cease to amaze us with her fashion wherewithal, overall beauty, and the head about her shoulders.
We’ve been guilty of hoarding products we love fearing that the brand will discontinue them, and apparently so is Carolina Herrera. She was so distraught to hear her favorite Bobbi Brown lipstick in Plum Stain was being discontinued that she bought out all the tubes she could find in stores, and even put in special orders for more. Brown is now re-releasing the shade, even re-naming it Carolina in the designer’s honor. But what about the rest of our M.I.A. faves?
It’s impossible to test and review every single beauty product on the market, so that’s why we’re just highlighting the good stuff. You know, those lotions and potions with which we’re currently obsessed, and the beauty counter buys we believe everyone should know about. Today’s pick is a gel moisturizer that kind of scared us at first.
