The Most Out-There Japanese Fashion from the Past 30 Years

We're always enthralled by the bold, cutting edge style that comes out of Japan. Makeup artist-turned-cosmetics giant Shu Uemera was a legend in his day -- a genius at creating groundbreaking, haute makeup looks with his eponymous line. "Future Beauty," an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, reminded us of his sharp, forward-thinking aesthetic. The show features 80 spectacular gowns by 31 top Japanese designers, including Issey Miyake and Junya Watanabe. "The exhibition shows how Japanese fashion design launched itself on the world stage in the 1980s. Japanese fashion designers at that time developed breathtaking aesthetic positions that subsequently influenced a younger generation of Western designers including Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester and Alexander McQueen," said the SAM's curator of modern and contemporary art Catharina Manchanda.   read more

20 Best Drugstore Beauty Products

We can all agree -- there is something deeply satisfying about saving money, no matter how subatomic the amount. Think about the last time you were at the grocery store and the sales clerk handed over your receipt saying, "Thank you Miss [Bargain Huntress], you've saved so-and-so dollars." You get kind of a rush, right? That's because knowing you're getting what you need for cheaper, for even pennies less, is a triumph. Now imagine snagging your beloved beauty essentials for a fraction of the price. If you're anything like us, saving a dead president or two on beauty products feels way better than saving on tomatoes. Are you with us?   See bargains

Usually, eating well and exercising will help you stay beautiful naturally, but there will always be pesky beauty problems that pop up (we're looking at you, backne). When that happens, it may be tempting to try some outlandish trick that you heard about through the grapevine or outrageously expensive tonic your favorite celebrity swears by.

With Total Beauty, you'll always have a resource where you can find expert advice on the best ways to take care of yourself using natural, gentle products and tried and true techniques.
