Let's face it, makeup for older women can be a real challenge -- or at least it feels that way.   read more


10 Fall Makeup Palettes Angela Chase Would Love

You've probably noticed that '90s makeup trends are, like, so in right now. All the hottest makeup looks of 2016 were also superfly 20 years ago: brown and berry lip colors; bright and glittery eye shadows; grungy eyeliner; shimmery lip gloss; and so much more.   read more

18 Next-Level Lip Kits to Spend Your Next Paycheck On

Thanks in part to the ever-ubiquitous Kylie Jenner, lip kits are experiencing a kind of renaissance. Suddenly, all of your favorite brands have their own take on the trend. Sure, some of them had their own lip sets before Kylie was even on the scene, but there's no denying the fact that she's had a hand in their fairly sudden and not-so-fairly massive popularity. It's cool, because it represents a whole new way to shop lip products -- now, you can buy your lip conditioners and balms together, or you can purchase complementary shades of lipstick and lip gloss in one fell swoop. Heck, if you're especially lucky, you might even be able to snag yourself cool special effects lip products to layer together for chicly unique new looks.   read more

12 Best Lip Liners

Lip liners get a bad rap, probably because they make people think of that awful lined-lips-with-nude-lipstick look. But skipping a lip liner is a missed opportunity to make your lips look fuller and more defined. The best lip liners also keep your lipstick locked in place and prevents feathering.

So we narrowed them down to only the best lip liners -- as chosen by TotalBeauty readers -- to make you a believer.   See reviews
