This season, Markus Lupfer left no stone unturned when it came to the details of his London Fashion week collection. And in addition to his floral-jacquard suits and ribbon-tied faux fur heels, the designer’s decadent touch extended to the decidedly ‘90s center parts of his tartan-clad models.

Playing off the linear, collar-bone grazing earrings dangling from the ears, backstage hairstylist Tina Outen smoothed each girl’s pin-straight lengths behind the shoulder, then meticulously encrusted the middle parted look with a stripe of diamanté crystals down the center. The overall look was a lesson in the rich rewards of perfectly...

Bite Beauty Just Dropped Another One Of Its Zodiac-Inspired Lipsticks

bite-amusebouche-pisces-1518812854

In January, BITE Beauty announced that it was launching a new Astrology-inspired lipstick collection to much fanfare. We learned every sign will be getting its own shade and kicked things off with a plum-hued Aquarius. Now, the beauty brand has returned with a new shade for Pisces.
The new lipstick, in that same beloved Amuse Bouche formula, is a dusty peach shade designed for the "dreamy, go-with-the-flow" lip savant, enriched with botanicals oils and fresh-pressed citrus.

BITE Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pisces ($26)

The lipstick retails for $26 but if the quick-selling Aquarius is any indication (it sold out in just two days), it'd be smart to act fast when "Pisces" hits sephora.com on February 19.

Some beauty products are just cult classics for makeup lovers, and perhaps no brand has more of them than MAC Cosmetics. Now, one of their most iconic and well-known products could be getting a makeover. According to rumors on the internet, a MAC Cosmetics Fix+ Matte could be coming, and it's time for matte skin lovers to rejoice. Bustle has reached out to MAC Cosmetics for comment.

Ebonee Davis On What Wearing Her Hair Natural In ‘Sports Illustrated’ Means To Her

screen-shot-2018-02-16-at-10-40-39-am-1518809064
To model in Sports Illustrated's famous swim issue is to be objectified. Readers indulge in the fantasy of wanting the women or wanting to be them—and part of that allure comes from being able to project onto photos that don't talk back. Ebonee Davis, however, is not here to be a silent siren.   Officially named one of SI's 2018 rookies, Davis joins the ranks of former rookies like Tyra Banks, Chrissy Teigen, and Gigi Hadid. The 25-year-old Seattle native was previously a part of the magazine's model search in 2016. Back then, she wore her hair with the same style that's dominated the issue for decades: long with loose beach waves. Now, she proudly wears her hair natural. Since making the decision to stop...

A Guide To The Perfect Glitter Eye, According To The Oscar de la Renta Runway

00-story-oscar-de-la-renta-eyeshadow
“I’m not a fan of the makeup in [YouTube] tutorials,” declared Tom Pecheux backstage at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2018 show this afternoon, citing the by-the-numbers approach to contouring that has become the prescriptive mainstay of social media beauty videos. “For me, makeup is to make you more unique than what you are [already]—more than making you look like everybody else.” With that in mind, Pecheux traded shaded cheekbones for fresh, glowing skin and one scene-stealing product: MAC’s 3-D glitter. “It doesn’t hide anything, so you are who you are,” he said of the playful, prismatic pop that was worn by the likes of models Grace Elizabeth, Daniela Kocianova, and Erin Wasson (making a rare runway appearance, to the surprise of die-hard early-aughts fashion fans everywhere). A lavender cream...

KKW Beauty’s Creme Contour & Highlight Sticks Are Being Relaunched With More Product After Customer Complaints

KKW Beauty
KKW Beauty has expanded quite a bit since its initial launch last year. Now, they're looking back. The Kim Kardashian West helmed brand is revising their original product, and it's for a very good reason. Individual KKW Beauty Creme Contour & Highlight Sticks are coming fans' way, and not only are the new products in direct response to fan critique, but they're also coming with a surprise. For those who were fans of the original three piece sets (two contour and highlight sticks and a brush), you may remember that there were calls to incorporate more product. While beauty vloggers complimented the formula and packaging, they also mentioned that there was little actual product inside the sticks. Kardashian is now remedying that. In a social...

I Got An Eyelash Perm & My Lash Game Has Never Been Stronger

Courtesy of Lynn Carver
It seems like everyone I know has either gotten or is getting eyelash extensions and while I think they look great on others, I prefer more of a natural look. So when I learned about eyelash perm treatments, I knew that I had to try it. This treatment, also known as a lash lift, is much less intimidating than it might sound, and it has actually been around since the early '80s (although the process has become much easier and more gentle as of late, hence the recent uptick in popularity). An eyelash perm is ideal for people who have naturally decent lashes, but want a little extra oomph without the maintenance of extensions. I'm pretty much the perfect candidate — my eyelashes are decently long, albeit straight,...

After a season or two of subtle tips, nail art is back with a vengeance. From geometric color to neon cheetah, the bigger, crazier, the claw-ier, the better. Ahead, the statement nails that stood out from the crowd.

Get Ready For The Return Of ’90s Hair

prabal-gurung-01.nocrop.w1210.h2147483647
Hold onto your hacky sacks; the ’90s are coming back in a big way. Well, ’90s hair, at least. On Saturday Guido Palau clamped the ponytails at Alexander Wang with a retro banana clip, and hairstylist Anthony Turner sent models with comb headbands down the runway at Prabal Gurung last night. Don’t you just love the nod to yesteryear? “It’s reminiscent of the ‘day after,’” Claudio Lazo, Turner’s hair co-collaborator, told the Cut. Lazo and Turner wanted a playful, modern antidote to the rich colors in the clothes. “Think of going to yoga class on Sunday morning and your hair’s slightly done from the night before. You add a little water to slick down the hairline. You twist the ponytail into a figure eight bun. It looks...

Finding The Perfect Red—And Lessons From A Reluctant Lipstick Wearer

Our very own goop editorial director Nandita Khanna was ready to become more of a lipstick wearer—at least some of the time. Like us, she insists on clean and non-toxic, so we sent her to Sheena Yaitanes, a painter by background and founder of Kosas, here in LA. Nan walked out looking stunning—and so pleased to have found, at last, her perfect shade (not to mention a few trusty backups). Here, her journey to the ultimate red lip:

My relationship with lipstick over the years is a lot like my dating life: Hot and heavy at times, and all but nonexistent at others. My makeup approach is fairly pared back—a bit of RMS concealer under my eyes, a swipe of Beautycounter mascara, and a...
