Talk About Glam: Kim Kardashian Got A Facial On A Plane

Face creams, haircuts, shampoo, mascara, waxings — our beauty routines do not come cheap. Though we'd like to think we do pretty well for ourselves when it comes to our regular maintenance, let's just imagine for a moment that money was not a factor. We'd surely upgrade a few things here and → Read More

10 Celebs We Had No Idea Started As Beauty Pros

They always say to have a plan B, but for many people, plan B (and C, D, and E) comes before plan A. We take all sorts of jobs on our way to the dream one — some more fun than others. The hustle is what makes the reward that much better, right? And it probably makes us all a little more → Read More

The Ultimate List Of Flattering Makeup For Redheads

It’s been an exciting few years for redheads: The gorgeous Julianne Moore won her first Oscar for Still Alice, Joan Holloway made her grand exit on the finale of Mad Men, and the Titian-haired sisters Adrienne Vendetti Hodges (pictured left) and Stephanie Vendetti (right), founders of the website → Read More

The One Face Mask That Instantly Improved My Skin

When the co-founder of Fresh skin care, Lev Glazman, told me about the inspiration for his company’s latest face product, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. “I was imagining jam,” he said. Yes, the stuff you spread on toast. I’m a big fan of Fresh products (the Brown Sugar Skin Polish → Read More

The Four Week Workout to Crop Top Worthy Abs

Midriff-baring attire has been a runway fixture for the past few seasons, reaching an apex at the spring 2014 shows. Was the there any designer who didnt show the ubiquitous crop top? → Read More

From Oil To Powder: New Ways To Wash Your Face

Skin-care rules may be fickle, but there's one that will always remain true: You have to wash your face. We're taught the importance of cleansing from a young age (moisturizing, toning, exfoliating — all that comes later), but that doesn't mean you should still be using the face wash your mom → Read More

Why It's Finally Time To Get Yourself A Clarisonic

The Clarisonic is misunderstood — or at least a little confusing. Yes, it has been around for a while and there are many (including several members of our beauty team) who swear by the device's skin-brightening, acne-fighting powers. But there are also plenty of people who don't know what all → Read More

10 Habits You Can Cut From Your Beauty Routine

If our beauty routine had an astrological sign, it would be Gemini — totally two-sided. We love pampering ourselves, taking care of our skin, and experimenting with new makeup and hairstyles. But sometimes, we feel like it takes soooo long and we just can't be bothered. There are mornings we'd → Read More

5 Major Beauty Trends To Try Now

We think it’s safe to say that the hairstylists and makeup artists working Fashion Week are riding high right now. Finally, after countless seasons of no-makeup makeup and #wokeuplikethis hair, they got to work their magic and turn out some serious looks. The eyeliner was in-your-face, the lips → Read More

The Best Beauty Looks At The 2015 Grammy Awards

It's music’s biggest night — an evening we look forward to for the chance at seeing something more than your basic red-carpet fare. Not to say we don't always love an award show, but the Grammy's offer something a little more spice. And this year, we certainly saw some standout looks. Taylor → Read More

9 Ways To Give Your Skin A Mid-Winter Moisture Boost

Winter may have officially started in December, but it feels like it just really kicked in. Temps have gone frigid, we've broken out our heavy-duty cold-weather gear, and our skin feels like it's been tightened two sizes. Dryness, cracks, dehydration, it's all happening. (If you live in Miami, → Read More

The Most Basic '90s Manicure Is Back

But it's not what you think. We've seen French manicures all over the runways for the past few seasons now — but basic they are not. Gone are the white tips with nude-polish topcoats that were a staple in every sorority from the '90s to the aughts. Instead, we're seeing manicurists breathe new → Read More

10 Hardcore-Coverage Concealers

There are some things in life we'd rather hide. More power to you if you don't feel the need, but most of us aren't usually in the mood to broadcast our breakouts or lousy night's sleep to the world. This is where concealer comes in. Some days we need just a little light coverage (or can even go → Read More

This Drugstore Buy Should Be A Staple In Your Routine

Cerave is a drugstore staple. From the brand's sunscreen to its moisturizing cream and its foaming facial cleanser, you've probably had at least one of its products in your medicine cabinet at one point or another. And this winter, Cerave has added another must-have (and, of course, → Read More

If you have a fragrance allergy, suffer from skin issues (rosacea, dry skin, eczema, irritation, you name it) — or perhaps you're just leery of added chemicals, or prefer not to smell like you bathed in piña colada — then you probably opt for fragrance-free or unscented products. But did you → Read More

20 Times Kate Moss Started A Beauty Trend

Kate Moss is a fashion icon — and that's putting it mildly. I mean, the woman single-handedly made knee-high, rubber rain boots cool. Pretty impressive. If she started wearing aqua socks in public tomorrow, Zara would pick them up as quickly as it poaches patterns from the Louis Vuitton runway → Read More
