Reading women's magazines can be depressing. Not only do the pages showcase impossibly beautiful (and thin) models, most of the featured clothes and makeup products are cost prohibitive for the majority of us. Sure, it'd be nice to be able to drop $200 on a neck cream or $1,200 on a cute dress for work, but given the state of the economy (and most of our less-than-robust checking account balances) such exorbitant splurges likely aren't in the cards.

Scenario: You're at work. It's 4:55pm and you've had a long, perhaps sweat-inducing day thanks to accounting department Susie giving you lip in front of the big boss. While you're fantasizing about your favorite sweatpants your husband calls saying you need to meet him and his coworkers for drinks at a chi chi restaurant straight from the office. You take one look in your compact mirror and panic. 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
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.
