Beauty Junkies, Meet Your New Favorite Photo Book

We all know the power of a statement lip -- a swipe of color and a touch of gloss can give your entire look a timeless je ne sais quoi. Is there anything more seductive than a pair of kissable lips? Author Alice Harris' latest photo book, "Blow Me a Kiss," $35, is proof that no, there is not. With a curation of classic images by visual artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein (no selfies here), Hines tracks the allure of luscious, legendary lips throughout history, from Audrey Hepburn's rosy pair all the way to Lana Del Rey's talked-about pout. If these gorgeous snaps don't inspire you to reach for the lipstick tonight, we don't know what will.   read more

Designer Roland Mouret is known for dressing some of the most glamorous celebrities in Hollywood in curve-hugging, ultra-flattering outfits.

The best part? Prices range from $49.50 to $140, meaning your fall wardrobe can get an update on a budget.   read more

14 Best Face Scrubs

We tend to stick to the same three skin care basics: cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection (if we remember). Sure, a lot of women do the occasional face mask or splurge on a facial, but there is one super important step many tend to forgo too often: exfoliating.   See face scrubs

The Fall Shoe Trend We're Stealing From the Boys

We're pretty fond of stealing looks from the boys -- oversized blazers, boyfriend jeans, motorcycle jackets -- and women's clothing lines are following suit. Oxfords, brogues and saddle shoes are popping up everywhere, and much like this summer's Birkenstock trend, they're stylish and comfortable. Embrace the look with other menswear separates or put a girly twist on the trend with a heeled, metallic pair. Whichever you choose, here's your style inspiration.   read more

Why I'm a One-Product-in-My-Purse Kind of Girl

On the weekends, I'm not much of a makeup-wearer. I like to give my skin a break when I'm not on set loaded up with gobs of it and baking under hot lights. Plus, as a new mom, makeup doesn't always find a place in my morning routine. And throwing a wet face cloth in the microwave to warm it up is as close as I have gotten to a facial lately (at least it saves water). Let's face it, if I have to choose between making kale chips and putting on foundation, I'll pick the veggies every time.   read more
