If Mercedes Benz Fashion Week conjures up iconic New York scenes, fashion editors wrapped in the craziest coats you've ever laid eyes on, and of course, Bill Cunningham, you're a woman after our own hearts. But while we're anxiously awaiting New York Fashion Week for a couple more months, we decided to turn our attention to the south. Miami, that is. Miami Swim Week is almost a complete 180 from the other Mercedes Benz Fashion Weeks. The shows take place late at night in an almost party atmosphere, and the bikinis can be so skimpy it makes us blush. As always, our favorite part of any fashion week are the beauty looks. Here, our favorite hair and makeup looks from the hottest city around. read more

We love a good Instagram makeover. And while a smoky eye or bright lipstick is great, nothing is more impressive than an acne makeover. read more
We see a lot of makeup brands and new products come through our office. But no matter how often we test out makeup collections, a new product from Nars never gets a blasé reaction. The same can be said for the collection's new shades for fall 2014. Nars' fall 2014 collection, Night Caller, boasts eyeliners flecked with gold, glistening eye shadow combos and the prettiest cranberry lip stain I've ever set eyes on. And that's just the makeup. read more
Selfies aren't a new phenomenon. "Selfie" was named the 2013 word of the year by Oxford Dictionary, and you'd be hard pressed to find any bar that isn't playing some electronic version of the "Selfie" song (if you can even classify it as a song). read more
Choosing a lipstick that works with dark skin tones can feel like a challenge. It may seem easier to stick to the plum and berry shades you know look fantastic with your complexion, instead of worrying about whether you can pull off an orange lip. (Spoiler alert: you definitely can.) But makeup --and lipstick especially, in our opinion -- should be fun, and more about what makes you feel gorgeous than sticking to a set of rules. In fact, celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose says that color-wise, lipstick options are practically limitless for dark-skinned women. We got his tips on how to wear any lipstick color with a dark complexion -- think vibrant violets, dreamy nudes, bold reds that work day and night and even an on-trend ombre look that's surprisingly easy to pull off. read more
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
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).

No matter what time I wake up in the morning, I'm running late. Maybe it's because I insist on scrambling eggs every morning, or am trying to fit in a few phone calls before I head out the door that I always run out of time to do my makeup. Fast-forward to me digging through my makeup bag and applying eyeliner on the sidewalk, lipstick in my car (at stoplights!) and bronzer in the office elevator. Over the years, I've come to learn that some beauty products are just not meant for commuting. Enter these on-the-go beauty products that are nothing short of genius. These products come in convenient toss-in-your-bag sizes, no-mess packaging and compact formulas that are so fool-proof you could apply them without a mirror if you had to (though we don't recommend it). Pick up a few and keep hitting snooze, or stash your favorites in your desk to go straight to happy hour. read more
