You know those heart-wrenching, soul-baring cries at the end of your favorite rom-coms? Think Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" looking for Cat with the heavens pouring down on her. Or Diane Keaton in "Something's Gotta Give," crying for days (long enough to write an entire screenplay). See mascaras
Body paint enthusiasts made their way to Austria to compete in the 16th annual World Bodypainting Festival, where they showed off some of the most incredible art in the flesh we've ever seen. Models posed wearing nothing but makeup and gallons of paint and glitter -- who knew you could do so much with makeup? Check out some of our favorite from this year's festival. read more
Obvious foundation streaks, noticeable pores, redness around the nose -- these are all makeup blunders on par with a glaringly large flake of black pepper stuck between your teeth. Celebrity makeup artist and beauty brand founder, Napoleon Perdis, says these makeup faux pas can be avoided by adding one simple step to your morning routine: applying primer (you're on your own with the pepper though). Get primers
We didn't think we could love Kristin Chenoweth more, but then there's this: Smashbox's cheeky video helping "primer virgins" everywhere. The spunky blonde joined style maven P'trique and top vloggers Andrea Brooks of Andrea's Choice, Camila Coelho of MakeupbyCamila, and Kandeeland's Kandee Johnson, in a fabulous vid that reminds us of SNL's sketch "The Californians." read more
I'm only slightly exaggerating when I say that finding the right foundation might be harder than finding the perfect man. With so many colors, tones, textures, and formulas out there, foundation is one of the trickiest things to test out in the store -- especially under those glaring lights. It's nearly impossible to see if you look like a chalky ghost or a greasy Oompa Loompa. read more
Some days, I'm cruising on autopilot. While sipping my venti iced coffee at Starbucks, standing on the subway platform, or tapping away on a keyboard at work, I'm totally unaware that my default face is a frown and, apparently, bitchy-looking, even though I'm perfectly content. How do I know this? Because random strangers, grocery cashier flirts, and coworkers are always asking, "Hey, what's wrong?" (Don't even get me started on the most grating comment of all: "Turn that frown upside down!") I can grin and bear it (har har), but really, I'm thinking 'why do I have to be a ray of sunshine? I'm just keeping to myself.' read more

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
Sure, summer is just getting into full swing, but we're already hearing whispers about the new makeup trends for Fall 2013. It's bold (brows), it's bright (skin), it's retro (dig out those Doc Martens), and it's what we'll be wearing come September when things start cooling off. read more
I'll admit it: I'm not a big fan of lip gloss. I generally think it's too sticky or too sparkly, or worse, a horrid combination of both. It doesn't matter if I'm hitting the gym or throwing on a LBD for a date, I usually have nothing but good ol' lip balm in tow. read more
