Mented Cosmetics Makes the Perfect Nude Lipsticks for Deeper Skin Tones

13.DopeTaupe
Although beauty brands like Kat Von D and Lancôme are becoming more inclusive with their foundation ranges and nude lipsticks, there's still room for improvement. New companies are even popping up to help fill the gaps. A couple weeks ago, Stellar launched at Sephora to help provide foundations to those with medium skin tones. Mented Cosmetics, on the other hand, creates nude lipsticks for deeper skin tones. Its founders KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson, who met at Harvard Business school, personally know how hard it can be to find the perfect nude lipstick. For years, they found themselves searching for ones at beauty counters but coming up short. "It felt as if the products weren't made for us in mind,"...

Victoria Beckham Calls Out The Haters Who Insist She Never Smiles

landscape-1490812331-hbz-vb-shirt-index
Victoria Beckham is hardly famous for one thing—she was part of a global music phenomenon called The Spice Girls, she's still the chicest reigning WAG ever in existence, she has a flourishing fashion brand, and, of course, she rarely smiles. When asked about the latter phenomenon, Beckham once said, "I'm smiling on the inside, but I feel like I have a responsibility to the fashion community." She does it—or rather doesn't do it—for the people, people. Fash-un is serious business and should not be undermined with something as pedestrian as a smirk. Real fashion deserves a cold, hard stare, a pout and a pose, a girl's best Blue Steel. And VB has always been happy—though she won't show it!—to comply. In...
