As much as our Instagram feeds might try to convince us otherwise, we don't all wake up each morning with an even, radiant and acne-free complexion. While there's almost always a makeup solution to conceal what plagues you, heavy foundation can be cumbersome in the summer months. To the rescue: lightweight BB and CC creams that provide just the right amount of coverage, along with sun protection, and stay put even in the most sweltering conditions.   read more

The Latest Beauty Guru Collabs We're Losing Our Sh*t Over

Whether it's makeup how-tos or beauty product recommendations, we turn to our favorite beauty bloggers for their mad makeup skills and candid opinions about all things beauty.

In other words, their opinions hold a lot of value to us beauty junkies. Which is why, when beauty bloggers team up with beauty brands for makeup collaborations, they're among the most highly anticipated product launches of the year.   read more

Makeup is a no-brainer when it comes to enhancing your best features -- that is, unless it's sliding down your face.

That's why makeup that can withstand the elements is a must. Instead of letting a little heat, humidity or tears ruin your makeup fun, keep your face in place with these top-notch waterproof makeup picks.   read more

10 Illuminating Face Lotions for Glowy, Gorgeous Skin

Glow is having a serious moment. Brands like Becca and Anastasia Beverly Hills are all about the highlight (see: Becca x Jaclyn Hill and Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit), and even Kim Kardashian has traded her signature contour for strobing (check out our tutorial here).

As someone who is a fan of glow, shimmer, sparkle and all iterations thereof, my glitter-encrusted heart skipped a beat when I heard about glotions, the latest way to give your skin a luminous finish. Glotions (sadly, I cannot take credit for the name) are part moisturizer, part luminizer. They make your skin look ethereal without being OTT sparkly (no disco ball effect, scout's honor). Wear one solo for an effortless look, mix it into your foundation for a dewy tinted moisturizer effect or dab some on the tops of your cheekbones to get that Taylor-Swift-post-gym glow.   read more
