When it comes to applying blush, the method pretty much seems like a no-brainer, right? Swirl, tap and swipe. But a pro will tell you this isn't quite true. Just like you'd never consider the same eye makeup look for hooded eyes as you would for monolids, the shape of your face plays a major role in the way blush can make your face look. If you apply your blush any which way, you run the risk of making your face appear rounder, too severe and pointy, or older. We spoke to makeup artist Kirin Bhatty, who's beautified stars like Jessica Paré, Alessandra Ambrosio and Jenny Slate, to learn best (and worst) blush techniques for your face shape. read more
Singing, dancing and happy endings define Bollywood (Bombay's version of Hollywood) films. Grand, sweeping musical numbers fill the screen and suspend moviegoers' reality for three to four hours (unlike "Lord of the Rings," Bollywood films kindly have an intermission). read more
Cleansing oils, dry oils, face oils, body oils ... After years of stripping our skin in pursuit of a squeaky-clean visage, we've finally caught on to the fact that oil is a good thing. Loaded with antioxidants, botanical oils soothe skin and prevent moisture loss -- giving us a glowy, not greasy, complexion. read more
Ever wonder why that smoky cat eye on Pinterest looks completely different (read: wrong) on you? It may be less about your shading and blending skills (we know you followed the directions to a "T") and more about choosing looks that complement your natural eye shape. read more
Bloodshot eyes are never cute. Whether you've been burning the midnight oil, fighting off the flu or sneezing your way through allergy season, bloodshot eyes are a dead giveaway that you're not feeling (or looking) your best. A recent study found that people with red eyes appear sadder, less healthy and less attractive than those with clear, white eyes. read more
The cut crease eye makeup look is on par with a killer smoky eye, the perfect red lip or those loose, beachy waves everyone (but me) seems to be able to perfect. In other words, you see it everywhere, but it's more difficult than it looks to do by your own hand. If you're thinking, 'Uh, what's a cut crease?', it's a technique that contrasts eye shadow color in the crease of your eye for a sharp, defined look. read more
Unless you happen to be a supermodel (or, like Kanye West, you don't mind looking cuckoo bananas), there are certain fashion trends that are practically impossible to wear. So when a wearable trend -- like the burgundy shade we saw all over the fall collections -- comes along, we're all over it. The fact that the rich bordeaux color is wardrobe- and makeup-friendly makes it even better. All of a sudden, the cold months ahead seem much more bearable. read more

Reddit is a great resource for many things: Discovering new memes, uncensored interviews with celebs (Snoop Dogg is a fan of K Pop, FYI) and, believe it or not, scoring sweet makeup deals.

No problem, Julie in Montana will trade you for her Stila lipstick in Phenomenal. Sounds like a makeup junkie's dream ... except for one teensy, tiny, problem: The majority of products being passed around have all been used. read more

Or are your eyes just watery and full of liner? read more
