Friendly reminder: Your skin does not stop at your neck. Which means, that diligent regimen you’re doing on the regular up top should absolutely extend to the rest of your body. The first place to start? Your legs, says New York City dermatologist Howard Sobel, MD. “You see your face in the mirror all the
Hijab-wearing model Halima Aden went from Miss Minnesota U.S.A. pageant contestant to a standard-bearer for cultural inclusiveness in fashion and beauty.

Miranda Kerr just got married to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, but the model and wellness guru still remembers what it’s like to feel heartbreak. “A few years ago, I was in a really rough place,” she says from her home in LA. “My heart was really wounded. This strong wave depression really hit me all
If there’s one thing we know about model Bella Hadid–other than the fact she used to date The Weeknd, was Kendall Jenner’s original Hadid BFF and is pretty much living our our dream life traveling around the world—it’s the fact she loves to eat. If it’s not a burger and chips before the CFDA awards,
I was on the beach and had just applied a thick layer of sunscreen when my friend gawked at me–”Are you…purple?” I hadn’t noticed the titanium dioxide-based formula used gave my caramel skin an unflattering tint. Self-conscious, I skipped doing the rest of my body. I’ll be fine, I thought, remembering hearing that melanin could

Most makeup artists can be categorized by their specialty–runway, editorial, celebrity, product development–and then there’s Pat McGrath whose influence reigns over every corner of the fashion and beauty world. With two decades of work, an eponymous makeup line, and 1.4 million Instagram followers, McGrath is the world’s most influential makeup artist. This evening her prolific
Makeup looks are born from myriad influences—fashion runways, mythical creatures, moods, even experiences. Snogged lips are all about the kissed-off color that comes after a spectacular makeout session: Traces of lipstick remain, but it’s cool, blurry, and way sexier than when it was originally slicked on.

Someone had lit my candle. “But Sally, aren’t candles supposed to be lit?” You might ask, head tilted. No, not SIXTY-FIVE DOLLAR CANDLES, FRIEND. Sixty-five dollar candles are meant to be admired, sniffed, dreamt about, saved for special occasions that would never actually come because what occasion could possibly be special enough for a $65
(*Spin junkies, take note! This applies to you, too.) Before: Going through some heavy digestion while hitting the pavement is not particularly ideal, so try not to have a full meal within a few hours of your jog. But if you’re craving a little fuel, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder recommends avocado toast as an ideal pre-workout
In the history of beauty trends, there have been plenty of fads that are ridiculous, and sometimes, dangerous. People put lead makeup to whiten their faces, which caused people’s skin and teeth to rot. “Arsenic complexion wafers” were a thing. Women used to douche with Lysol.

I have two kids. My second baby, weighing in at almost nine pounds really did a number on me. Since I’ve had him (18 months ago) things just haven’t been the same down there. A few months ago I started researching my options. I read reviews about vaginal rejuvenation and V-lifts (facelifts for your vagina)
Getty + Twitter + Dana Tepper No one should ever be made to feel badly about their bodies. But unfortunately, it’s all too common for someone—even a well-meaning relative or a friend—to make an upsetting comment about the way you look that can linger in your memory for years. Sally Bergesen, the founder and CEO
Alessandro Michele’s Gucci designs are always a feast for the eyes. The clash of patterns, colors, and textures—from head-to-toe—could be stared at for hours. At his latest Gucci resort 2018 show in Florence this weekend, no detail was left unadorned. Not even the models’ fingernails.

Straight off of the Kim Kardashian-Kylie Cosmetics collection, Kylie Jenner has teamed back up with her other sister Khloé Kardashian for their second collab together.

Thanks to social media, just about anybody can build a following. This is surely the case with the beauty world, where a whole generation of artists have made their mark with unique and innovative makeup. But one boy from the UK is turning heads not just because of his skills, but because he’s ten years
Over the years, Queen Elizabeth has proven that she has very specific taste. She owns more than 200 versions of the same purse, ends each night with a glass of bubbly, and won’t travel without her favorite dessert on hand. So it’s no surprise that Her Royal Majesty’s methodical nature extends to her nail care.
When novelist and perfumer Tanwi Nandini Islam decided to expand her Brooklyn-based botanical beauty line, Hi Wildflower, into cosmetics, she had a specific goal in mind: Make it work for women of color. Accustomed to the fruitless search for shades that suited her own brown skin and seeing how limited options were for women like
When packing for a vacation, do you ever really take your beloved beauty products and squeeze them into three-ounce, empty containers? Nobody has time for that. You could just get the travel sizes. Or, you could jump on the solid skincare bandwagon and avoid the TSA headache altogether. Get introduced to the beauty trend, ahead.
Like that on our body, the muscles in our face need exercise. The difference is that you can work out your visage without lifting a finger. I learned as much upon visiting European-trained facialist Toska Husted at her newly-minted spa in Charlotte, North Caroline. It was there she meticulously got to chiseling as if she
Last night, I ate dinner at 10pm. It’s not that I forgot about dinner–trust me, I’m always thinking about my next meal–I had a work event, then an hour trek back home, then an hour wait for Seamless (because I’m lazy), so it just happened. It’s not that uncommon of an occurrence for me. Lately,
