Recently engaged and happily planning every detail of your big day? From planning your centerpieces, to your dress and the honeymoon, there are so many little details to think about... including your makeup, of course. While you certainly want to be the center of attention — the belle of the ball! — you don't want your makeup to overpower your look.
A matte lipstick that dries as a thin veil across your lips certainly has its place. But sometimes, a rich, hydrating, plump and glossy pout is the look — and feel — you're going for. A straightforward balm in your back pocket is always effective, but you don't have to limit yourself. Yep, you can have your gorgeous, high-quality lipstick and happy, moisturized lips too — and these seven lipstick launches prove it. From high-gloss finish to sheer color to buttery satin, you've got options, babe.
Meghan Markle loves showing off her freckles — so why shouldn't you? Well, the only problem is, it can be tough to find a foundation that offers just the right amount of coverage to accommodate your freckles while still keeping everything else under lock and key... leaving you feeling like Goldilocks and the three foundations.
When it comes to finding the best foundation, we know you're looking for one that will have you covered no matter what the situation. And depending on your skin needs, that best foundation may be one that provides you with full and long-lasting coverage or perhaps a lighter formula that works well with oily skin. For some individuals the best foundations are those that offer a diverse range of shades or those that won't break the bank while providing users with airbrushed-like skin.
While it's too soon to start wearing any of the clothes from the Fall 2019 shows that just wrapped up in New York, London, Milan and Paris, there's no rule saying you can't start experimenting with the makeup looks seen on the runways. From artsy and edgy makeup you can rock at any music festival to glammed-up looks that are totally appropriate for that nighttime event, you can sample some directional fall makeup trends right now. Here are a few we're trying asap.
Feeling a bit fancy for St. Patrick's Day? Celebrate the holiday and party it up with green makeup ideas straight from the runway. Whether you want to keep it pretty and polished or prefer to go all out with an extravagant look, try on one of these looks pretty enough to wear any time of year.
There are some days when we're feeling pretty extra and want blue eyeshadow, neon lipstick and all the glitter. (Not necessarily at the same time.) Then there are other days where we're feeling more low-key and want to look like ourselves — just a little enhanced. That's when we strive for a natural makeup look.
Well, we've officially done it: We've paired our two fave things, astrology and eyeshadow palettes. And it's a match made in the heavens. Eyeshadow palettes and stars, both beautiful to gaze upon, both too numerous to count...
We kiss with them, we sip with them, we angle them with finesse to create coy little smiles -- they're one of the sexiest parts of the body, and paired with the right gloss, balm, stick or stain, can make an onlooker weak at the knees.
The worst is over. And by worst, we mean winter. Yes, even though there is still snow on the ground in many parts of the country, the first day of spring lingers near... which means it's time to break out the floral prints, pastel hues, and bright (and fun!) makeup looks. It also means that it's time to shop for your new "it" eyeshadow palette of the season. Consider these top picks your main contenders, from a shimmery Jill Stuart quad to a retro-inspired Maybelline 12-shade palette — and get major eyespiration for your springtime garden parties or movie nights in the park. You name it, there's an eyeshadow (or 14!) that'll take your natural glow out of hibernation mode.
Ah, spring. We can finally leave the house and feel the sun shining on our faces. We shed the many layers of clothing and this year, we also get to shed layers of makeup. Because the major trend on the runway at New York Fashion Week? Bare-faced beauty. It's natural — the antithesis of layering foundation and primer and concealer. It means skipping the endless blending and highlighting in favor of your natural glow. And this year is even more fun. Besides the dewy skin and glow-ups, there was an added element to keep things interesting: a dot of shadow here, a swipe of underliner there, and you've updated the whole look.
Mardi Gras is the perfect opportunity to let loose and experiment with bold makeup looks that bring out your inner glamazon. Whether you're hitting the parade or a local party, the spring runways offered up creative new eye looks perfect for celebrating. Grab your most over-the-top pigments and get inspired to create the most extra Mardi Gras makeup with the looks ahead.

We've accepted the fact that you're not supposed to wear makeup while you workout — but some of us find it hard to hit the gym bare-faced, okay? At the very least, we like to put on a little concealer (especially when we're breaking out). And when it comes to workout-safe concealers, only the very best will do.
Oh, color changing lipsticks: We just can't quit you! What is it about them that makes them so uniquely alluring? Is it the throwback quality that brings us right back to high school? You know, those days with everyone trying on the same bright blue lipstick and eagerly turning to the mirror to see how it looked on each of us... Or does it go back even further; to the mood rings we got when we begged a quarter from our parents and popped it into the machine? Or is it simply the bewitching illusion that draws us in; the fact that it looks one color in the tube, then turns another hue on our lips, as if by magic?
So many good hair and makeup looks at the 2019 Grammys, right? There were amazing ponytails (a la Camila Cabello and Jennifer Lopez), killer smoky eyes (like Lady Gaga's and Nina Dobrev's), and magnum-sized eyelashes galore (thank you, Cardi B and Katy Perry).
