Hairstylist Rod Ortega on how to get that iconic "Blake Wave."

Blake Lively wore what has to be a record-breaking SEVEN outfits in New York City yesterday for her All I See Is You film press tour. Naturally, she killed them all. But let's not forget that she also wore SIX hairstyles, too. Lively and her longtime hairstylist Rod Ortega started the day bright and early for the morning show circuit with a half-up style and simple side-braid—then ended the day with perfectly glossy "Blake Waves" that we've always tried to copy ourselves and have failed miserably. So how can you create six hairstyles in one day? We spoke with Ortega, who used all T3 hot tools, on how to steal Lively's look...

Break Out The Flatiron: Flipped Ends Are Clawing Their Way Back

gettyimages-854431498-1508276572

Last week, the internet learned that Bella Hadid talks like she's doing one long audition for 21 Jump Street. Before we reveal why this is relevant, let us first revisit her legendaryComplex interview because it is a terrific waste of seven minutes, plus you could time the pause between the "gonna" and "like" in the "homeboy's gonna, like, get it."

But there's another reason to pay special attention to Bella Hadid—and that would be her hair in this video, which is worn flipped out at the ends like we used to do in the late '90s/early aughts! Gah! It's baaaack. This isn't the first time Bella has pulled out ye olde wrist flick with a flatiron or round brush (provided you have the dexterity to end...

This Instagram Video Proves That Red Concealer Is The Key To Flawless Skin

red-color-correcting-1508266139
Fact: Color-correcting is confusing. I’m a beauty editor with a lifetime of hardcore love and devotion to studying makeup, and I still have to take a second when faced with a concealer palette filled with 60 shades. And if you’ve got darker skin—as in, olive, golden, or almond shades that tend toward greenish undertones—color-correcting can be an even trickier endeavor, because most concealers were not made with your skin tone in mind. Because the makeup industry, well, let's just say it's come a long way but we're not quite there yet. But that’s where red concealers come in. Yes, bright-red, lipstick-looking concealers, which are swiped over dark circles and dark patches to cancel out the green-ish, blue-ish undertones present in darker...

How To Wear Pink Makeup On Your Eyes, Cheeks, And Lips At The Same Time

Courtesy of @maisonvalentino
Monochromatic pink makeup--worn on eyes, cheeks, and lips--has been all over the runways at Gucci, Dior, Miu Miu, Valentino and more for several seasons, but it's still rare to see people wearing the trend in their everyday lives. The key to translating the look from the runway, explains makeup artist Benjamin Puckey, is to use multiple products. "It's important to make sure that you have differences in texture," he says. With matte shades all over, "it will become very flat." Instead Puckey suggests mixing a gloss on the lids and lips, with a satin finish on the cheek. And it's important to find the right shade of pink for your skin tone: the makeup artist recommends a lighter shade for...

We Relate To These Spiked Brows On a Deeply Personal Level​

mc-browcomp-1507911980

Okay, we know you’ve already been inundated with too many brow trends this year, from the squiggly wave brow, to barbed wire brows, to dragon brows, and you’ve been a really excellent trooper through it all. But the year is not over, and the hellish onslaught of sexual assault-riddled news is most likely just beginning, which means this new brow look couldn't have come at a better time. Meet spiked brows, an Instagram gem that so clearly displays our inner feelings right now of being a woman in modern society, it's almost laughable.

SS18 is all about bare beauty - or as we like to call it, à la française 🇫🇷

If fashion month taught us one thing it's that contemporary beauty is being redefined. Granted, perfect hair and makeup might be the norm with the beauty bloggers and influencers - but on the catwalk it's a totally different story.

De-coiffed hair and barely any makeup fronted the biggest shows of New York, Paris, London and Milan fashion weeks - and it's been probably this season's biggest revelation yet.
