Here's the ugly truth about makeup for most of us: you can spend a fortune on the best products, but if you're using the wrong tools to apply it, your makeup will never have the flawless look you expect from a $75 foundation. I had this epiphany recently. I was wandering through Sephora (because it's my happy place) and there it was: the giant display of makeup brushes. The one that takes up an entire row; the one I usually walk right past. But I've had profound doubts about my makeup lately, so I stopped to browse. What, exactly, does a Brush #57 do? Is that funny egg-shaped sponge worth a few bucks? read more

Lip liners get a bad rap, probably because they make people think of that awful darkly-lined-lips-with-nude-lipstick look. But skipping a lip liner is a missed opportunity to make your lips look fuller and more defined. It also keeps your lipstick locked in place and prevents feathering. But with so many options to choose from, it's easy to end up with a liner that doesn't deliver on its promises. So we narrowed them down to only the top reader-reviewed lip liners to make you a believer. See reviews

At TotalBeauty.com, we're (surprise!) total beauty-hoarding junkies. While this means we're constantly running out of counter space (and under-the-sink space, and medicine cabinet space, and pretty much every other space our roommates and significant others allow us), it also means we know what we like. And when we really like something, we find it hard to live without it. Case in point: One member of our editorial team recently bought an entire case of mascara on eBay after she found out it had been discontinued. Turns out, we all have a product we'd secretly like to stockpile in a beauty fallout shelter. Do you have a product you can't live without? Let us know in the comments below, and click ahead to see the one product we just won't give up. read more

Chanel seemed to take the soundtrack of their SS '14 show, "Picasso Baby," pretty seriously with this splattered eye makeup look. Get crazy with that cheap eye makeup palette you've never used and go for a futuristic ( ...or '60s ... or '70s) look. For extra drama, use real paint like makeup artist Peter Phillips did. (Just be sure it's safe for your skin, or you'll be rocking a whole different look, like flesh-eaten zombie.) read more
Beyonce has been my idol since I could hand a $10 bill to the clerk in exchange for a Destiny's Child single at The Warehouse (look it up, it was soo a thing. Which is why I've been Foxy Cleopatra and Deena from "Dreamgirls" for at least three Halloweens in a row. And I'm not alone on this. She has a tendency to be the inspiration of thousands of viral Halloween re-creations worldwide (Single Ladies dance craze, anyone?). So this year I got together with the Total Beauty team to take the Beyonce Halloween metamorphosis even further. read more
