Our readers from ages 25-30 have asked us via our message boards for some tips on how to conceal dark under eye circles. For example, one frustrated women is at a loss because she gets eight hours of sleep, eats right and has tried nearly every eye cream known to man, yet is not seeing results. So we asked a plastic surgeon, dermatologist, as well as skincare and makeup gurus to weigh in. Here are some expert tips and the best concealers for under eye circles: See tips
Red: The color of passion, the color of love. It's probably the sexiest color around and when painted on your lips, it's dynamite. Like with all lip makeup colors, certain shades of red look better on some skin tones than others. Because of this semi-frustrating fact, we are constantly asked by readers to help them find the best red for them. See looks

In a day and age where we are constantly exposed to glossy, (ahem) retouched magazine covers and celebrities who have "look amazing at all times" practically written into their contracts, it's easy to get down on yourself. We're all guilty of spending tons of money searching for beauty products and procedures that are going to magically "fix" what we don't like about ourselves. With that said, we think it's time to start loving ourselves a little more and using beauty products that simply enhance, not mask, our features, shall we? See products
We all want to look our best and by "best" we mean the most youthful version of ourselves. There are many ways to slow down the aging process such as wearing sunscreen religiously, eating lots of fruits and veggies, drinking boatloads of water, having a militant beauty routine, using quality skin care products, etc. But for those of you who might have missed the anti-aging memo or just assumed you'd look 20 something well into your 40s, we hate to break it to you, but once the crow's feet and sun spots have set in, there aren't many ways to make 'em disappear short of spending tons of cash or getting cosmetic surgery. So your next best option is to fake it. And how can you fake it, you ask? With makeup, of course. See tips
Surely one of the best things about the holidays (you know, besides all the yuletide cheer, family bickering, presents and weight gain) is the great makeup looks you can experiment with. Sorry, didn't mean to channel Scrooge there, it's just that the holidays can be precarious in their merriment. You can't count on anything to go as planned: Cakes don't rise as they should, kids don't always appreciate the gift you stood in a three-hour line for, and grandma won't keep a lid on her disagreeable political views at the dinner table. There is, however, comfort in knowing that there are glamorous makeup looks you can wear to these festive occasions that are capable of lifting your holiday spirit. Start quiz
Cue the music. Hold your breath. Fight those tears. It's time -- time for the geek or the tough-girl or the under-privileged/secretly gorgeous duckling to swim as a swan. You know it's the best part of the movie. When the scullery maid gets transformed into a princess. When the tomboy FBI agent turns into a beauty pageant queen. When the nerd becomes the most popular girl in school. Despite being grown women, we all love a good movie makeover, don't we? See Makeovers
Nine-to-five fact: When you've got deadlines, you'd rather spend time in line at Starbucks than doing your makeup. Any gal on the go knows the importance of that first sip of java, the extra three minutes in the shower, or that morning run that gets your blood pumping before the eight-hour (if you're lucky) grind. So, doing your makeup in the morning shouldn't require a significant time block, agree? Basically, if making up your face has made it on to your iPhone "to do" list, it's time you got the memo that perfectly pulled-together makeup looks can be accomplished in five minutes or less -- so no need to block out the better half of an hour.

It's 6pm. And you just got a last minute invitation to dinner with friends. There's no question -- you're in. Except for one problem -- you don't have time to run home and touch up your makeup , and you only have lipstick, one eyeliner and powder in your purse. What's a girl to do? Easy -- get creative and make those makeup products multi-task. See makeup looks
There's something so appealing and youthful about flushed cheeks and rosy lips. Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with a perpetual glow and just-bitten-looking lips. The good news is makeup companies have done their best to give us what nature should have through the ingenious invention of lip and cheek stains. That said, while some of these products have forever earned a place in our reader's makeup bags, others have wound up in their trash bins. See products
