    The modern lip, so red and so big, brings a catch 22. You want a bright, bold, statement look, but most lipsticks are drying and chemical-filled—so much so that they can actually contribute to aging.

    Finding The Perfect Nude Lip Color

    Every woman should have a natural shade of lipstick that she can swipe on without looking in the mirror. When shopping for the perfect no-mirror lip color, I suggest going barefaced. Use your natural lip color (not your skin tone) as a guide for finding your go-to nude shade of lip color. It should enhance your natural lip color without looking too obvious.   The most flattering shade will either match or be slightly darker than your lips.

    Fall Beauty Trend: Brown Lipstick Done Right

    Brown lipstick is making a comeback, like many other ‘90s trends. With brown lipsticks (and other ‘90s trends like lip liner, Manic Panic, and crop tops) flying off retail shelves, I reached out to celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg (she glams up stars like Rashida Jones and Kaley Cuoco) on making brown lipstick look hot, no matter what your skin color. “Brown lipstick was very late ‘80s, early ‘90s and it’s made a big comeback!” says Greenberg. It’s sort of bringing back the trend, but with a cool, new edge.” Greenberg says the key to wearing brown is looking for a shade with a more-wearable undertone rather than a straightforward brown.

    Goodbye Shimmery Lip Gloss, Hello Liquid Lipstick

    The new incarnation of lip gloss is nothing like its sheer, sticky predecessor. From top: MAC Vamplify lipgloss in Push Some Buttons, What’s Going On, She Rebel, Everybody’s Talking, A for Attitude, and Suggestive. Gone are the shimmery, sugary, sheer glosses we associate with Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton and that early 2000s Juicy Couture vibe (which I may or may not have been really obsessed with — I’ll let you guess). The new lip glosses are more like liquid lipsticks — highly pigmented, shiny but not too sticky, and much more sophisticated than their prior incarnations.

    Despite the fact that I make a modest living writing about it, I’m always learning something new about those little pots of eye shadow, the goop that gives my lashes a much needed boost and the flesh-toned liquid that makes people believe I have a doll-like complexion. Really, the only thing that thrills me more than cute animal videos is learning of a new makeup hack. 1.     Start by applying the red lipstick lightly enough to cover your undereye circles.

    Get the Perfect Foundation Match: Sephora and Pantone Launch Color IQ

    After all, unlike your eye color, your skin tone changes with sun exposure and other environmental factors, so you can easily go too light or too dark even if the color matched perfectly at a different time and place. It also matters if your skin has pink, yellow, or as Sudanese model Nykhor Paul once told me, “true blue” undertones. It’s simple: Just walk into Sephora and ask for the Color IQ service.

    Kylie Jenner Wears At Least $50,000 of Jewelry on Her “Teen Vogue” Cover

    Photography by Giampoaolo Sguru for Teen Vogue.  Kylie Jenner is mad… Max, that is. Appearing on the cover of Teen Vogue this month, the 17-year-old was shot in the desert in a “Mad Max meets Coachella”-themed shoot.  Fashion magazine editorials tend to be fantastical and often unrealistic, placing their subjects in settings out of their comfort zones and in unexpected looks. She’s wearing a khaki button-down shirt with a simple Valentino necklace and an arm of Cartier bracelets, somewhat resembling a normal teenager, albeit one with a lot of money (that stack of 8 bangles is at the least, and I’m saying bare minimum here, $50,000.) Yes, glossy spreads transport and transform individuals, but the real question is why, in the middle of the desert on a shoot that’s based on badass women who never shower and sport dirt all of their faces as a point of pride because they’re too busy dealing with cars and mechanics, does Jenner (or Teen Vogue for that matter) not get more serious with the theme?

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s annual survey, 13% of plastic surgeons saw an increase in requests for celebrity procedures, a big jump from just 3% on 2013. The most desirable facial feature was Angelina Jolie’s lips. Next was Beyonce’s facial structure, Kim Kardashaian’s eyes, and Natalie Portman’s nose.  According to the survey, 18% of the procedures in 2014 were performed on men.

    Thanks! Carrie Dear Carrie,  When picking a shadow, look for one is almost sheer and not too dry. Xo Bobbi Hi Bobbi, I have a lot of holiday parties after work and need an easy way to update my makeup for them. Best, Amanda Dear Amanda, This is simple—add some black eyeliner and a bit of silver or gold sparkle on the cheeks for a beautiful and quick update. Xo Bobbi Hey Bobbi, Do I really need a whole eye shadow palette to do a smoky eye or can I do it with just one shadow color?
