I'm a huge lipstick aficionado, but I'll let you in on a little secret: I'm terrible at choosing shades for myself. As I'm sure you know, if it looks good in the tube or swatched on your hand, that doesn't necessarily mean it will look good on your lips. When I heard Los Angeles was getting a Bite Lip Lab, I nearly jumped for joy at the thought of being able to create my own lipstick (with a little guidance, of course).
The Emmy Awards red carpet was full of gorgeous beauty looks this year — they ran the gamut from classic red lips from stars like Claire Foy, Rachel Brosnahan and Nathalie Emmanuel to inventively colorful eyeshadow looks a la Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae and Thandie Newton.

Walking around backstage at NYFW, it's apparent that you're in the company of the industry's most talented makeup artists, hairstylists and nail techs. These are people who have reached the top of the game and have been given the responsibility of helping each designer — who's invested countless dollars at this point — bring their collection to life. As such, they know a thing or two about how to make sure every detail is perfect. A handful were kind enough to bestow their wisdom upon us so that we could share it with all of you.
Much like Fenty Beauty and CoverGirl, Target is making the push for more diversity in its beauty department — and it's taking its first step by including more makeup for people with darker skin tones. It recently curated several indie beauty brands, many of which were founded by women of color.
While there are some truly outrageous beauty moments from the runway that wouldn't translate well on the sidewalk, there's an equal number of downright gorgeous looks that everyday people can draw inspiration from. This was true for the Spring 2019 New York Fashion Week shows, where makeup artists incorporated fun bursts of color, soft and feminine color-scapes and lots of playful touches. Today, we're focused on eye makeup, so grab your brushes and get ready to recreate one or all of them in the coming months.
Is it just us, or does it seem like there's a new beauty product launching every day? Lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, blushes, foundations, you name it — it's enough that even professional makeup artists feel daunted by the sheer amount of products out there.
This past summer brought us bright and dewy (hello, glitter and highlighter!) makeup looks that made a major impact. The fall beauty forecast promises to be just as dramatic, though with an emphasis on moody hues and timeless beauty staples with a twist. To find out exactly what's in store this season, we asked celebrity makeup artists to share the top trends they'll be working with this fall.

Every once in a while, a limited-edition makeup collection comes along and just plain knocks our socks off. One such example? The new Proenza Schouler x Lancome collaboration, perfectly timed to coincide with New York Fashion Week (a few products from the collection fittingly made their debut on the Proenza Schouler runway).
It's fall, which means it's time to go back to school and work (cue the tears). Besides looking for creative ways to add pumpkin spice into our beauty routines, we're searching for beauty products that make our lives easier. With the daily rise and grind, we don't have time for a 23-step skin care and makeup routine. It's time to Marie Kondo our regimen with multipurpose products that we can dab on and go.
Have you ever seen your friend pull off a hot makeup trend, but find it looks wacky on you? It might just be a face shape thing. Your face shape can dictate whether that coral lip color Jessica Biel wore on the red carpet will look just as smoking on you... or not (same holds true for hairstyles, so make sure you don't commit the face shape haircut mistakes these celebs made). Basically, you want to make sure that you're wearing makeup that will enhance your features and aspects of your particular face shape, while minimizing your less favorite attributes.

But when you take a selfie, all you see staring back at you is a ghost. Sound familiar?

There is nothing more annoying than stepping into the office bathroom midday and seeing that your makeup has completely left the building. Since this is a common struggle, we often rely on setting sprays and primers to keep makeup looking fresh. But there are days we just don't have the time or the patience for that extra step, so we turn to long-wear products that promise to stay put throughout the day.
