These Beauty Vloggers Are Dumpster Diving for High-End Makeup

dumpster-diving-beauty-products
Remember that neon-purple eyeshadow your grandma gifted you over the holidays, because “it just looked so darling”? You know, the one that you politely tried on for her, then immediately returned after she left? Yeah, we’ve all done it, and maybe you, too, have wondered what exactly happens to those lightly-used-and-returned products after you’ve said goodbye to them at the register. Turns out, they don’t go back to a special factory and get recycled into sweaters for the homeless. Most of the time, stores like Ulta and Sephora actually end up throwing them in the trash at the end of the day, and lest you think nobody would want to go through a pile of trash in the name of beauty, two beauty vloggers...

The Instagram Evolution of Your Favorite Style Bloggers

010317-fashion-blogger-lead
It's pretty crazy what a difference five years can make, and these bloggers know it. Among the first to fully transverse the world of Instagram, style influencers and bloggers like Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, and Aimee Song of Song of Style took to the social media platform long before its first major peak of popularity. Ferragni, the reigning queen of fashion blogging, uploaded her first posts circa 2012, as Instagram ballooned from 5 million users in June 2011 to 100 million users in February 2013. And to this day, she still posts photos multiple times daily, keeping us entertained, and our newsfeeds full of colorful, designer goods. All of the girls are just as gorgeous in...

What To Wear In January 2017

what-to-wear-january-2017-feat
Ahhhh, 2017. FINALLY, am I right? By now, we’ve earned a fresh start—and with that, a wardrobe reboot. By that, I don’t mean you should feel compelled to go on a blowout shopping spree, but rather take a look at what you already have with new eyes and challenge yourself to try something different. Have you been meaning to wear that crazy-in-a-good-way faux-fur coat but haven’t found the occasion? Throw it on tomorrow with your favorite pair of jeans. Want to take things in a more streamlined direction this year? Home in on the pieces and silhouettes that work best for you and create your own version of “uniform dressing.” Whatever your style outlook for the year, kick things off on the right...

20 Weirdly Satisfying Videos of People Applying Liquid Lipstick

liquid-lipstic-videos
If you’ve ever accidentally spent two hours watching makeup tutorials on Instagram in a full-out trance, you know how addicting it can be to watch strangers apply their makeup. And recently, we’ve noticed a new trend in tutorials: insanely satisfying liquid-lipstick videos that border on sensual. No, seriously. We’re talkin’ close-up shots of plush and pillow-y (hey, there’s literally no other word that can be used to describe these) lips getting covered in creamy lipstick. And weirdly, they’re absolutely mesmerizing. We’re sure a psychologist could aptly explain why watching lips getting stroked by a liquid-lipstick wand is so satisfying to watch, but whatever the reason, we’re hooked. And if you don’t already follow a thousand makeup artists on Instagram like we do,...

21 Comfy Outfits to Wear When You Don’t Want to Leave Your House

comfortable-holiday-outfits-isabella-thordsen-feat
I don’t know about you, but when I talk about going home for the holidays, I mean going—and staying—home. As in, not venturing outdoors unless absolutely necessary. Now, that may have something to do with the fact that my family lives in Canada, and it’s often so frigid up there that you’d be nuts to go out wearing less than seven layers of clothing (not an easy packing task, lemme tell you), but even without the climate concerns, this time of year is your prime opportunity to curl up inside in the company of ample hot beverages, piles of cozy knitwear, and plenty of reading material. Sound appealing? Thought so. In the slideshow, see 21 seasonally-appropriate comfortable outfits you can get away with...
