As red carpet fiends, we love covering the big award shows — you know, the Oscars, the Emmys, etc. But by far the biggest pleasure of all has to be the annual Met Gala: Because, no matter the theme, the credo of the night usually tends towards "Go big or go home," which usually results in some pretty epic beauty looks (not to mention full-on fashion shenanigans.)

If you don't prime before applying eye makeup, you're committing a serious makeup crime. If you aren't convinced that you need (or have time for) this crucial step, maybe this will do it: Experts say that the No. 1 way to prevent makeup from melting and smudging is to prime. (Think about it this way: Taking an extra 10 seconds in the morning to apply eye primer is quicker than spending five minutes wiping eyeliner off your lower lids in the afternoon.)
We have very specific requirements about what makes a good lip balm. The best lip balm should nourish dry lips and keep them hydrated throughout the day. It should also taste lip-smacking good without any weird faux mint flavor. Bonus points if it's tinted.
