There are some beauty launches and collaborations that make total sense — like Charlotte Tilbury's recent Pillow Talk Extravaganza collection — or that are super exciting but not exactly far-fetched, like ColourPop's recent Disney releases. Then, there are the beauty debuts that are a complete departure from what you'd ever expect... which is exactly what we're diving into today. Let us know how many times you murmur, "whaa?" to yourself reading through this list.
She's been there for you through it all: your breakups, your make ups, and your one-night stand regrets. No matter what your relationship status looks like at the moment, one thing's for sure: Your single best friend deserves to feel the love on Valentine's Day.
For anyone who once dreamed of sitting on the steps of the Met with Blair Waldorf and crew, the recent hair accessory renaissance — with a special emphasis on headbands, of course — is a true boon. And heck, it goes beyond "Gossip Girl," too: From pearl-embellished beauties, to boho-esque satin numbers, there's honestly something for anyone.
If, like me, you are well past your teenage years, you may have asked yourself: What the heck is a VSCO girl? Basically, "VSCO girl" is the term for a teen girl with a very specific aesthetic who, as the name implies, is very into the photo-editing app VSCO. The VSCO girl look is pretty basic and very laidback: scrunchies, slip-on shoes, and clear lip gloss are all mainstays. VSCO girls also care deeply about the environment, steering clear of plastic in favor of reusable water bottles and metal straws.

There is much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: our family, our friends, our partners, our careers, our health — and, of course, our little black leggings that get us through every event of the chilly season... especially on the one day of the year focused on gratitude and gluttony, having a comfortable pair of "pants" that stretch with every bite is essential. From plus-size and maternity to fancy and casual tights, here's our round-up of Thanksgiving-appropriate wear.
Everything old is new again. Case in point: Fanny packs have made a major comeback. While "waist bags" were ridiculed back in the day for being super-unstylish and dorky, they've gotten a seriously stylish upgrade. Now, you can find fanny packs in chic patterns and sleek colors that will have everyone wanting to hop on that '90s bandwagon.
Who would've thought that the scrunchies you wore as a child would come back as a bona fide fashion trend? Even though we didn't see it coming, we're grateful that this 90s staple is back: Because in addition to looking quite chic, scrunchies are great for keeping your hair out of your face. Plus, there are so many different styles to choose from — so you can wear them for pretty much any occasion; from your first day at college, to a date, or even a job interview. Vive la scrunchie!
Five years ago, when I was new to traveling, I would start packing at least a week in advance. And two years ago, when I decided to give up my New York City apartment, rented a storage unit and prepared travel for 12 months through 12 countries, I started packing nearly a full month before. Fast forward to 2019, and I'm a bonafide travel journalist who jet-sets at least twice a month over oceans or across the country — and I barely give second thought to what I'm bringing until the morning of my flight. It's not that I care less, but rather that I've learned how to streamline the process so it isn't quite so overwhelming.
It can be tough to find the perfect gym bag: It needs to be functional and stylish. Big enough to carry all of your workout gear, without being too bulky. Armed with lots of pockets for everything from makeup wipes and shower shoes to car keys/subway passes and post-workout snacks — but in a sleek, fashionable way (not a OTT cargo pants way).
Most brand ambassadors tend to be, well, young. But you know what? The desire to take care of your skin and a passion for makeup doesn't stop at a certain age. There is definite ageism in the beauty industry and it's telling older women that they don't matter as much because they are no longer youthful. Which, ultimately, is nonsense.
You have your venue, your wedding gown and even your something-blue all set, but your bridal hair and makeup look is just as important as the dress. (Not to make you panic or anything.) Luckily, the runways are a fantastic source for wedding beauty inspiration. Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2020 showcased fresh looks that are timeless enough that they won't look laughably dated 20 years from now, making them the perfect inspiration for your wedding hair and makeup.
Everything old is new again... including all your favorite grade school hair accessories. Barrettes and adornments of all types are in, but there's one in particular we've got our eye on: flip clips. Yep, in addition to lacing up your shiny black Doc Martens and tying back your hair with a scrunchie, it's time to add a new (old) 90s trend to your line-up.
We can't think of a trend that's had a more meteoric rise than barrettes in 2019. They're suddenly everywhere: on the red carpet, on the runway and most definitely on your Instagram feed. Picture a way to wear them and it probably exists; whether that means stacking pearl-studded clips, velvet bows or even oversized rhinestone confections that wouldn't look out of place on Queen Elizabeth I (yes, I).
