Painful shoes. 18-hour workdays. Being a Fashion Week reporter requires blood, sweat -- and awesome little gifties like these

While we all love makeup, we don't want to look like we're wearing any -- which is where bareMinerals comes in. Its loose powders come in 20 different shades that flawlessly buff into every skin tone. It looks incredibly natural and glowy -- but hides everything from zits to sun damage. The only downfall? The mess factor. We're prone to leaving trails of loose powder all around the house. So when we heard the brand was releasing its first-ever pressed powder (with just as many fabulous shades), we were ecstatic.
To celebrate the launch of their bareMinerals READY SPF 20 Foundation, bareMinerals is hosting 1,500 foundation-fitting events nationwide from September 1 through October 14. To get your perfect match, stop by select bareMineral boutiques, Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom,… See more »

Kate Hudson's been tearing up the red carpet at the Venice Film festival over the last few days, promoting her new movie "The Reluctant Fundamentalist." And of all the celebrity looks we bookmarked this week, this one was our favorite. Her makeup is sexy and dramatic without being too much, and her hair is pulled back in a way that's both simple and elegant.
If you want to try Hudson's bronze smoky eye at home, the key is finding the right shimmery (but not too shimmery) shadow. We recommend Almay Wake Up Eyeshadow + Primer in Exhilarate, $8.99. Use the lightest shade as highlighter under your brows and the darkest metallic all over the lid and underneath. Then, use an angled brush to line your eyes with the rich plum color. Finish off the look with mascara, neutral blush and… See more »
