What happens when your skin tone is too fair for foundation shades with names like "Alabaster" and "Siberia?" If you have a vampire-like pallor like I do, you know how frustrating it is to think you've found the Holy Grail foundation shade for your fair skin, only to have it turn orangey-pink in natural light. read more
Confession: I used to really like Anna Kendrick. After all, she's an extremely talented Academy Award-nominated actress. But when I started following her on Instagram and Twitter, I found that I actually love Anna Kendrick, and I want this witty, smart lady to be my new BFF. Case in point: Her Twitter tag line is "Pale, awkward and very very small. Form an orderly queue, gents. Location: Probably by the food." She talks about hating pinstriped suits ("The adult version of Ed Hardy. Letting chicks know you're a douchebag from 100 yards away, just more expensive."), when someone actually uses a phone to call you ("I basically assume someone has died."), and jarring alarm bell ring tones ("That damn sound makes my balls jump up into my body. Wait, what?") in a way that makes me want to go stand by the food with her and talk about how we both like to cry on cross-country flights. read more
Nothing gets our hearts racing faster than the phrase "limited edition." Those two words can transform a product from one we're thinking about purchasing to one we need to have in our hands that very instant. Because once they're gone, they're gone. From the Derek Lam Estee Lauder collaboration to bling-y, spring-y palettes and fabulous gifts-with-purchases, these spring makeup kits would be covet-worthy even without the limited-edition status. But since they're only going to be around for so long ... you'll want to snap them up before they're gone for good. read more
Most of us are never on TV or the silver screen, but we are the stars of our own reality show.

The real beauty in Laura Geller's spring collection (besides the covet-worthy colors) lies in the fact they are virtually foolproof. The refreshing cream eye shadows glide on with ease and allow for buildable color, while the lip liners go on without tugging for an easy application. And don't be afraid of the baked shadows -- these made-in-Italy palettes may be highly pigmented, but the bold shimmer and spring-ready colors go on silky smooth. But our favorite part of the collection has to be the lip crayons, which come in six hydrating shades and make getting the perfect pop of color easy, thanks to the chubby size and smooth formula. read more
It takes a brave soul to let someone come near their eye with a pointy stick and an even braver one to let that someone put the pointed stick into their eye. But that's precisely what three women did -- all in the name of beauty. Or something like that. read more

Every once in a great while something good can come of something mean-spirited.
When former film siren Kim Novak was mercilessly ridiculed for having what appeared to be a face full of (badly placed) fillers at the Academy Awards, novelist Laura Lippman tweeted a makeup free selfie as a token of "solidarity" and challenged others to follow suit. read more
Most of our faces aren't entirely symmetrical. It's what gives us character, what makes our faces interesting and unique and human.
