Why Red Lipstick Scares Me (And Which Other Shades are Hot for Fall) Why Red Lipstick Scares Me (And Which Other Shades are Hot for Fall)

The good news for those of us who loathe to wear bright shades of lipstick is that this fall we actually have a choice! According to the people who know this kind of thing, this season is all about being either understated or glam so, you can wear nude or crimson on your lips and still be "en vogue." (Because, of course, we all spend a great deal of time worrying about whether we're "en vogue.")…

My Go-To Travel Makeup Bag: Don't Leave Home Without It My Go-To Travel Makeup Bag: Don't Leave Home Without It

My mom has been a travel writer for about 30 years, which means that, growing up, my brother, sister and I got to join her and my dad (a lawyer/travel photographer) on some pretty cool adventures. It also means that she thinks she knows everything there is to know about hitting the road -- from how to score an upgrade to precisely what to pack -- and, to that end, we each always had a hanging…

Were you as turned off by Christina Aguilera's recent "Not Myself" video? You know, the one where the 30-year-old mom, channeling Lady Gaga, writhed around in glittery bondage costumes and made out with sundry guys and girls? Now, listen, I've never thought of myself as a prude in the slightest but, to me, that video was 100 percent inappropriate and more than a little tacky. And, where was this…
