Move over, Karl Lagerfeld — your collection for Shu Uemura won’t be the only major beauty collaboration hitting the shelves this holiday season. Cosmetic giant Nars recently announced a collection inspired by the work of Andy Warhol, produced in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation.
Keeping your makeup collection from turning into a big messy jumble of glosses, serums, and compacts is a tricky task, and one that can stump even the neat freaks among us. Good thing we’ve got Jemma Kidd to show us how to clear the clutter and streamline our beauty bags in style.
In anticipation of the Olympics, we rounded up the best competition-themed nail art we could find on the web. Turns out what we found had nothing on the awesome digits sported by the female Olympians themselves. And don’t even get us started on their hair and makeup!
Sometimes a video like this comes along that just makes you feel a little bit better about the world.
This is the secret to Kim Kardashian-level beauty, you guys!!
You know when you’re shopping for makeup and two shades that are virtually identical are called two completely different things by different brands? And, of course, we’ve all had those moments when a shade looks just right in the store and the minute you step into the sun it’s horribly, horribly wrong. But what if someone could tell you a universal shade that exactly matches your skin tone?
We’ve loved Michelle Williams since her Dawson’s Creek days, but it turns out the Oscar-nominated actress had a star turn on Home Improvement that really her put her on the map. Watching her give Brad Taylor a lesson in concealer use is probably the best thing that happened to us all day. Well, except for that naked guy photobombing a kids clothing ad. Anyway, enjoy!
The moment you didn’t know you were waiting for is here! Iris Apfel, fashion icon, lover of jewelry and all things sparkly and fun, is coming out with her own line of makeup for MAC – and it’ll be in stores for you to snap up in just a few weeks.
It’s sad when you think about how long it’s been since Little Miss Eden Wood of Toddlers and Tiaras has gone without wearing makeup — and even sadder when you remember that she’s just 6 years old. But all of that is made funny in this new video, where she and other child stars visit a childlike child psychologist.
If good artists borrow and great artists steal, Lady Gaga must be a truly great artist. In a new video for MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, the Mother Monster admits that some of her best looks come right off the faces of her fans.
According to a new study published this week, makeup doesn’t just make women look more attractive, it also makes them look more competent and trustworthy. But while we’re all a bunch of self-confessed makeup addicts, it’s probably worth noting that this study was sponsored by a giant cosmetics company.
If you’re a fashion designer, launching a full cosmetics collection is a big undertaking — especially if you run a relatively new brand. But Tom Ford says he’s excited about the new beauty products he’s working on, and that might be because he already uses a little makeup on himself here and there.
We’ve always known the price of beauty was high, but learning how much we makeup junkies could be spending on powder and blush leaves us flushed! And that’s not even the most disturbing statistic published in a recent British study.
Do a quick Google image search for the work of photographer Cindy Sherman and you’re likely to turn up more than a few unabashedly odd photos. That’s exactly what MAC got when it decided to do a makeup collaboration with Sherman, whose work has been raising questions about feminism and the way women are portrayed in the media since she first started snapping pictures of herself.
Looks like Charlotte Ronson may just be the new makeup mogul in town. In September, the designer will debut her eponymous beauty line in 280 Sephora stores across the U.S.
Madison, our favorite 5-year-old makeup guru, has a bird! His name is Sunny. He is a Sun Conure. Madison drew a makeup version of Sunny on her face. “Does it look like him?” she asks. “Kinda. Sort of,” she answers. Also, “He likes to eat pineapple. So get a lot of pineapple.”
If you’ve ever laid awake at night, wondering what it would look like if someone applied an entire year’s worth of makeup in a single sitting, well, wonder no longer. Nowness, along with directors Lernert & Sander, teamed up with a pair of makeup artists to painstakingly apply 365 layers of foundation, blush, lip gloss, and cream eyeshadow on model Hannelore Knuts‘s face in a single and what was presumably very, very, very long day.
Whether you’re hippie or health-savvy, chances are your bathroom cabinet contains more than a few “organic” items. But exactly what does organic entail? A lawsuit by the Center for Environmental Health reveals that numerous “organic” beauty products actually contain very few organic ingredients, if any at all.
If you’re not familiar with 5-year-old makeup guru Madison, well, you’re about to be. The tot made her first splash back in February, when a video of her talking up her favorite brushes (among other things) was uploaded to YouTube, and she’s since (via her mother) been fairly active on the site, offering makeup tutorials, haul videos, and all around general adorableness. But none of these have managed to hold a candle to her inaugural post — until now. One Madison-approved, Halloween-ready pirate eye patch, coming right up!
Lately there’s been a whole lot of talk (on this site and others) about kids wearing makeup. There was that creepy French Vogue spread that recalled JonBenet and the news that Walmart would be launching an anti-aging kids’ cosmetics line. While these stories represent an extreme of the beauty industry, I think it’s time for some real talk: I was a tweenage makeup addict.
