Makeup That Even Your Irritable, Super-Sensitive Eyes Will Love

They balk at eyeliner and tear up at the sight of eye shadow. And don't even think about going near them with mascara. If you've got sensitive eyes, chances are you have a love/hate relationship with your eye makeup. Sure, that cult-classic mascara may get you bold, beautiful lashes, but if it's causing your eyes to flip out, it just isn't worth it. So we enlisted the help of New York-based optometrist Dr. Dori Wolf, who sees patients with swollen, red, itchy and flaky eyes on the daily (she estimates that around 35 percent of her patients have these symptoms), She spilled her tips on the makeup that won't send your eyes into a tizzy. But before we even get into the cosmetic side of things, her first recommendation: Pop a daily omega-3 fatty acid supplement (otherwise known as fish oil). It reduces inflammation in the body and, in turn, help keep eyes moistened and comfy.   read more

Send Your Blowdryer Packing for the Summer Without Suffering from Withdrawals

Pumping piping hot air into your house during the dog days of summer isn't the brightest idea to begin with, but factor in the knowledge that repeatedly exposing your hair to high temps isn't doing it any favors in the look-good department and taking a break from your blow dryer can seem like a downright inspired concept. Except for the whole "my hair's going to look like cr**" drawback.   read more

Most of us walk around feeling like we're not getting enough rest, right? But you're probably getting a lot more than you think you are.

Want to Win Taylor Swift's Heart? Skip the Dieting

• Taylor Swift says she's actually super anti-diet, but a lot of the guys she hangs out with aren't. In fact, if they say they're on a diet, she'll often ditch them quick. "I'll cook for these boys, and they'll be like, 'I'm on a diet. I'm like, 'I can't hang out with you," she says. Okay. [NY Mag]   read more

The Only Jacket You'll Be Needing This Summer

After months of seeing these delicate, fanned out earrings all over the red carpet and throughout the blogosphere, I finally found out their proper name: Ear jackets. And while the phrase might not send you running to the nearest jewelry store, these images will. Ear jackets are the slightly subdued, classier version of last summer's big and bold ear cuffs (they were all over the punk-themed Met Gala red carpet). Just slip them onto any earring post. Our favorite thing about this accessory trend? They're appropriate for any occasion, from the red carpet to the boardroom. Here's why.   read more

How Much Product Do You Really Need?

If a little bit is good, then a lot must be better, right? Not when it comes to your beauty products. According to experts, the products we use on a daily basis adhere to the Goldilocks principle. Too small of a dollop may mean your anti-aging serum may not work at all, but too big of a blob of deep conditioner could mean greasy hair and split ends (not to mention a depleted bank account).   read more
