Free makeup may sound like a fun (not-extremely-necessary) treat to most people, but to many beauty junkies, it can mean avoiding near bankruptcy. Yep, a beauty-obsessed gal's insatiable urge to punch up her pout with the latest liquid lipstick, liven her lids with all 30 shades of the newest eye shadow palette or fight the signs of aging with that revolutionary serum can add up. And it often means that beauty lovers' makeup bags are overflowing with products, while their wallets are more drained than that bottle of their signature scent. read more
The first thing I learned while watching the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black": Be thankful for bathroom stalls with doors. The dramedy, about a waspy New Yorker who gets busted for being a drug mule and ends up behind bars, is packed with teachable moments and covers the gamut of jailhouse clichés (Lesbians! Contraband! Shifty guards!), but what really stuck out was the inmates' undeniable ingenuity -- these women are the reigning queens of DIY. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade ... and when prison gives you maxi pads, make flip-flops (or upgrade to duct tape if you're fashion forward). Stole a screwdriver? Fashion a makeshift dildo! read more
We all want long, lush lashes that make our eyes pop, but only the best mascaras can get the job done. We're talking those holy grail mascaras with wands that grab and coat every last lash, formulas that let you layer without clumps and give you the volume, length and definition you crave -- all day long, without smudging. Is that really so much to ask? See mascaras
I can't swipe on a lip gloss without singing that Lil' Mama song. Think back to 2008. You know the one. ("They say my lip gloss be cool/My lip gloss be popping.") And I'm about to have it playing in my head on repeat, because lip gloss is back in a major way. (Proof: Kylie recently launched a gloss version of her matte Lip Kit). read more
Nothing puts a damper on the whole "blushing bride" thing like melting makeup or over-contoured cheekbones. Your makeup is a central part of your entire bridal look. After all, this is going to be the most photographed day of your life. And if you've decided to do your own makeup -- whether as a way to save a buck or to ensure you really look like yourself -- you're likely feeling the pressure to get it right. You might feel compelled to try and execute something you've never done before. read more
I grew up on a steady diet of "Cinderella" and "Beauty and the Beast" played on repeat. (I even had my first crush on the Beast, which I won't even try to psychologically unpack here.) Chances are you have a similar Disney-movie-watching experience, and I'm willing to bet you had a favorite Disney princess because she just got you. Maybe you pretended to be on a magic carpet like Jasmine, or decided to take scissors to your hair like Mulan (true story). read more
The best CC creams give you radiant and even-toned skin, and set the stage for the rest of your makeup -- making heavy foundation and layers of powder unnecessary. Over the past several years, the best CC creams have inspired many women to give up heavy foundation, thanks to the natural, skin-perfecting coverage they offer. read more
When you imagine a bride getting ready for her wedding day, you probably envision a mother-daughter trip to Kleinfeld to pick out the perfect white gown, or an inspiration board of bridal updos that she tries out weeks in advance. But if you're a bride in West Sumatra, Bulgaria or Morocco, that routine might look a little different -- like an eight-pound-crown, face-paint, tinsel-veil kind of situation. One thing's for sure: Beyond the Western world, bridal beauty has a million definitions. Here are some of the world's most amazing bridal 'dos, makeup and accessories we've ever seen. read more
You could say that I have a love/hate relationship with makeup. Some days I enjoy playing with all the different colors and get excited when my smoky eye turns out perfectly. See cheat sheet
We know sunbathing, tanning beds and even spray tanning can cause some serious skin issues, but does that mean we're doomed to be pale and pasty forever? Not a chance. There's still one safe way to get that golden glow, and it's in your makeup bag: bronzer. See bronzers
