How to Ditch Your Curling Iron Forever

The last time I/the world used foam hair rollers was probably right around the time that blue eye shadow was still a definite fashion "do" and Jessie Spano was tweaking on caffeine pills. But like crop tops and Doc Martens, what was retro yesterday is hot today. To whit, women in beauty-product-obsessed Korea are all over sponge rollers right now. And when summer temps are soaring, getting gorgeous hair without wilting under a curling iron or blow-dryer starts to sound pretty fab. Here's how to get the curly, wavy or voluminous look you're after with foam rollers.   read more

The cure for a balmy, sweltering summer: refreshing pineapple prints. This season, bold graphic patterns have hijacked our wardrobes, and taken us straight to the tropics.

Want to Stay Young Forever? Here's Where You Need to Live

Aging isn't all bad. Things like growing wiser, deepening relationships and developing skills can't be bought -- they can only grow with the gift of time. However, we don't always appreciate all of the gifts time bestows upon us -- namely, wrinkles, sagging skin and hyperpigmentation. These are the signs of time passing we actively try to prevent and avoid. And, it turns out, some cities in America are much, much better than others at doing so.   read more

Got Freckles? You're Probably Making These Makeup Mistakes

For anyone, finding the perfect foundation shade is about as easy as following a rainbow to its end. Add freckles to the mix and, well, you might as well be looking for a leprechaun and pot of gold, too. You're faced with issues like whether you should match your foundation to your freckles, to the rest of your face or to some shade halfway between the two.Then, there's the question of coverage: Should you completely cover them?

So we turned to Katie Jane Hughes, makeup artist and Global Colour Ambassador for Butter London, and Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist Taylor Babaian to answer all our questions about applying makeup to freckled skin.   read more

11 Beauty Looks from Miami Swim Week You'll Want to Wear Everywhere

If Mercedes Benz Fashion Week conjures up iconic New York scenes, fashion editors wrapped in the craziest coats you've ever laid eyes on, and of course, Bill Cunningham, you're a woman after our own hearts. But while we're anxiously awaiting New York Fashion Week for a couple more months, we decided to turn our attention to the south. Miami, that is. Miami Swim Week is almost a complete 180 from the other Mercedes Benz Fashion Weeks.

17 Best Face Cleansers

When it comes to the art of face washing, we ladies take it pretty seriously. We carefully select our skin care products and practically give ourselves a facial in the A.M. and P.M. We do this ritual in the morning to look and feel refreshed and awake (even when we likely get less than six hours of sleep). And then we wash the day off of our faces in the evening, removing all traces of makeup, as well as any dirt and excess oil.   See cleansers
