The Makeup Line that Contains Every Shade of Summer

After a long winter of darkness (both outside and in my makeup routine) I'm ready for summer makeup collections full of light pastel washes and punchy brights. Enter Topshop Beauty's summer 2014 makeup collection and I'm head over heels in love with each and every piece. Topshop's new Sheer Lips, Lip Varnish and Lip Paints were inspired by the iconic lips of model Kate Moss (the perfect match for all the Kate Moss for Topshop fashions perhaps?). And while the lip colors are nothing short of wow-worthy in bold colors and both matte and glossy finishes, the pastel nail polishes in the summer makeup collection are perfectly understated. The Best part? Every piece is under $25. I'm making a vow right here and now to forsake pricey department store makeup (well, at least for now) and head straight to the mall for my summer beauty look.   read more

Hair Loss Happens. Here's What to Do About It

In women, thinning hair and hair loss can be chocked up to a wide variety of causes. Physical and emotional stress, poor nutrition, and genetics (often the cause behind female pattern hair loss and post-menopausal hair loss) are all hair loss causes. But there's a difference between needing to add some volume and 'oomph' into your hairstyle and truly needing products for thinning hair or hair loss. If you've recently gone through a change, like switching up your birth control brand or you recently had a baby, your hair loss is most likely temporary. But if you notice your hair thinning progressively over time, or you see noticeable loss around the crown and hairline you may need to look into hair loss treatments.   read more

The Only Makeup Collection We'd Wear Poolside

There's something about the words 'limited edition' and 'Nars' that when put together, completely throw us into a frenzy. So of course, the new Nars summer makeup collection, Adult Swim, has me lusting after lime green (yes, I said it, lime green) eyeshadow. Adult Swim launches in store April 15, and combines the best of all facets of summer makeup -- pastels, neons, metallics -- and somehow makes it all work together.   read more

Whoa! Two Eyeliner Tricks That Make a Cat Eye Look Tame

The next time you have a spare five (or 10) minutes, try one of these amazing eyeliner looks. Unlike the smoky eye (which, let's be honest, takes a bit of brilliance in blending artistry), the only thing these looks require is a steady hand. And maybe a little glitter. And, oh yeah, the right brushes and tools.   read more

Beauty Products That Seem Like an April Fools' Joke But Aren't

There are some beauty products that are so crazy/awesome/amazing, we just can't believe the world went on spinning without them. Powdered cleansers that get past TSA -- so handy! BB cream for your body -- how did no one think of this sooner? And then there are some beauty products that are so crazy, we can't believe they exist. Take for instance edible deodorant. Not only did someone dream up this concoction (and think it was a good idea), its inventor also managed to convince financial backers and stores that people need this product. Yes, we wish we could say it's an April Fools' prank, but trust us when we say it's legit. Here, 11 unbelievable beauty products that seem like a joke, but aren't.   read more
