5 Ways to Update Makeup For a Pixie Cut
How to make up your face so you don't get mistaken for a guy
When Poppy King (left), makeup guru and founder of Lipstick Queen, recently decided to chop her signature retro bob into a pixie, it changed her look completely. "I'm glad you still think I'm a girl!" she joked when I called her to talk about the best makeup for women with pixie cuts.
