Funk up your look this fall with the highly anticipated NARS Collection inspired by Andy Warhol. The packaging alone would be of enough interest for some to go out and purchase this collection. Once the outer packaging is open, there's an actual self-portait of Andy Warhol on the actual eye-shadow palette (talk about uber cool). There's also an eye and cheek palette inspired by Debbie Harry!
We had the chance to sift and sample through the collection and the colors are really saturated. As most of us beauty lovers are aware, NARS collections are typically limited edition, so if the Warhol collection sounds like something you can't live without, get to your local Sephora soon!
We all know that the best way to care for our skin is to follow a strict skincare regimen twice a day. For a brilliant, glowing complexion, it’s crucial to use quality products on a regular basis. Yes, that means at every night—especially those late party nights—even when you come home feeling too tired to take off your shoes. So what can we do to motivate ourselves to really take care of our skin? What if one of our favorite, super fun to use makeup brands developed an equally glamorous skincare line? One so luxurious we couldn’t wait to come home and pamper ourselves. Well, good news, girls. NARSskin has arrived!
A new season is here and it’s time for all of us to pull out our summer make up and update our look for the season. The S/S runways were full of beauty trends that are fun, fresh, and totally doable! From bold brows to bright colorful lips, you are sure to find a look that suits your personal style. Below we provide you with our favorite styles; please, do try these at home!
From wine-colored stained pouts at Prabal Gurung to bright reds at Jason Wu, statement lips are everywhere this season. Get behind this trend by picking a color that works with your skin tone. As we saw on the runways, the color itself doesn't really matter. It could be blue, purple, orange, or pink, just pick a tone you like, with a matte finish, and you’ll get a look that’s perfect for you and right on trend!
We're all due for some summer sun after a long, grueling, pasty white winter. So what to do once you've achieved that sunkissed glow? Maintain it! We’ve got the tips on how to preserve that tan without overdoing it. Intrigued? Read on!
Exfoliation is the first crucial step to keeping your summer glow. It’s important to exfoliate your whole body with a salt free product and pay special attention to the rough areas of your skin (knees and elbows). Use Bare Minerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser to see brighter and smoother skin while exfoliating.
Beauty lovers, behold! Spring just got a whole lot hotter! (And we're not talking about the weather!) Voluptuous red pouts made their classic marks on seasons past, but they are definitely (and devilishly) here to stay. Luckily, for the spring and upcoming summer season, the perfect red pout doesn't show up to the party alone; she's invited three hot friends: fuchsia, melon, and orange. Because these colors are all so hot this season, we’re going to point you in the right direction of all the kissable hues you just have to get your hands on!

Winter can wreak major havoc on your skin between the frigid temperatures, biting wind, and the moisture-zapping effects of the indoor heat we blast during this time of year.
Just when you thought the only answer was resorting to rubbing your face chock full of Vaseline or taking any other drastic measure, look to the latest foundations and tinted moisturizers that are putting science and nature to work to deliver amazing results.
Benefit and Nars, both brands who have amassed cult-like followings (and verified Glam Damn It staples...BADgal Mascara and Orgasm blush, anyone?) are launching brand new products just in time to rescue your skin from a dull, lifeless existence (...and the Vaseline!).
