This Woman Has The Most Inspiring Message For Others Struggling With Acne

pretty-ugly-1515786971
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S. and affects up to 50 million Americans annually. But acne is more than just dealing with annoying blemishes—it has also been linked to increased anxiety and depression in teens. Seventeen-year-old Colorado resident and artist Hailey Wait said she started breaking out when she was about 11 or 12 years old "right around the time when puberty hit" and has been bullied because of her breakouts. "People would tell me everything from 'pizza face' to death threats, saying that anyone with as much acne as I had didn't deserve to be alive," Wait said in an email. The teen has been open about her acne struggles on her Instagram, but shared an...

Valentino Spring 2018 Fashion Film

valentino-spring-2018-fashion-film-feature-image
There is a real art of cutting through the noise of fashion and the team of Inez & Vinoodh, Pierpaolo Piccioli, and Riccardo Ruini have it down pat this season in their recent ValentinoSpring 2018 fashion film. The film opens with the line ‘Am I Dreaming’ from the 1989’s Paranoimia by The Art of Noise featuring Max Headroom (aka actor Matt Frewer). That 80’s inspired vision is brought to life in the simplest of ideas, stunning makeup by Diane Kendal and motion. Creative Movement Director, Stephen Galloway, is at the top of his game  coaching models Gigi Hadid, Adut Akech, Felice Noordhoff, Oumie Jammeh, Aurora  Talarico, and Rianne Van Rampaey to gesture in drama and optimism that give this short its special sauce. Kudos to Riccardo Ruini and the team at agency Riccardo...

1200x600

For most of us, the annual responsibility of refreshing your New Year's outlook is intimidating. For Toronto's leading makeup artist Mila Victoria, there was no other option but to confront uncertainty head on. As a graphic design student in Canada faced with significant acne and insecurity, Victoria began to use makeup as a means of personal empowerment.

It wasn't long before "Makeup by Mila" became a phrase used by all of Toronto and now, with a flourishing YouTube following of nearly 100,000, an impressive resumé that features The Weeknd and Grimes, Victoria is exactly where she should be: in the spotlight.

PAPER caught up with Victoria in Toronto to talk all things beauty.

7 Huge Beauty Trends That Will Be Out In 2018

out-trends-index-image-1513365725
Alright, folks—we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the crazy, mind-melting, WTF-worthy sideshow known as 2017 is almost over. The bad news is that as we say hello to the new year, we’ll also be saying goodbye to a heap of 2017’s wildest, coolest, and most-viral beauty trends. We know, we know. But before you tear up, we'll point out the obvious—no trend truly ever dies (proof: crimped hair), nor should trends ever really dictate what you should and shouldn't wear, because you do you. Even still, we'll be seeing a lot less of these looks in the new year, so please, pay your respects by remembering the year's craziest beauty trends that are going to...

I Gave Up Jeans For 10 Days and Here’s What I Learned

elle-nikki-wears-pants-1513631098
As far as cleanses are concerned, I don't believe in them. The thought of juicing makes me stabby. I'm an adult and I feel like I can eat, drink, and shop as much as I want—or don't want too. Plus, I'm an even-keeled person so I rarely do anything to an extreme. But recently I found myself in a bit of an outfit rut. Every look involved the same pairs of a jeans, a sweater, and boots. How boring. To break the cycle I decided to post a photo of myself in a pair of Balenciaga pants I bought because I was going to "wear them all the time" (but have worn them less than five times since I bought them...

Oil vs. Powder: This Shiny Makeup Trend Is an Actual Optical Illusion

galaxy-sunset-highlighter-1513105331

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a black and blue dress that looks white and gold! Or a white and gold dress that looks back and blue! It’s a world of optical illusions that make no sense, but that the internet loves! And now, we’ve reached the beauty equivalence of internet memes: highlighter that looks like slippery oil slicks…or maybe just super iridescent powder? Oil or powder? OIL OR POWDER?!

The look, which is fondly being called “galaxy sunset highlight,” has gone viral over the last few days—not really because of its inherent optical illusion (although, like, come on, people—this shit is insane), but because the combination of insanely ethereal colors looks straight-up otherworldly.

Christmas Tree Brows Are Here To Haunt Your Holidays

christmas-tree-brows-1512681415
You better watch out / you better not cry / you better not pout / I’m telling you why / CHRISTMAS TREE BROWS ARE COMING TO RUIN YOUR LIFE. Or, at least make your life a lot more interesting. Because just in time for the holidays comes a new brow trend that’s equal parts glorious and awful, and yet completely awesome all at the same time (we subscribe to the religion of You Do You, so please, rock these eyebrows with abandonment). The brows were created by Instagram user taytay_xx (AKA YouTube vlogger Taylor R.), who managed to combine all of this year’s most terrifying brow trends (feather brows, barbed wire brows, and bauble brows) into one festive little look that’s quickly blowing up on Instagram....
