14 Things Only People Who Wear Lipstick Understand

  That moment when you try to kiss an acquaintance's cheek and accidentally rub color on her face… 1) Eating a sandwich while wearing lipstick requires skill. Good luck emerging without Ruby Wooall over your chin and nose. 2) Trying on clothes must be done with heart surgeon precision. There's nothing worse than that guilty smudge of red all over the inside collar of a white dress. 3) That moment when you kiss hello on the cheek and accidentally leave a trail of red… 4) Makeouts are extra messy. Stick to a nude shade (or better, ChapStick) for date night. 5) The constant refrain: "Did I just smudge my lipstick all over my face?" 6) The horror of accidentally getting it all over your teeth. Stop staring and tell me already! 7) Slathering Vaseline on your...

The #ILOOKLIKEANENGINEER Hashtag Keeps Getting Better

isis_anchalee_engi_3398011b Earlier this week we flipped for #ILookLikeAnEngineer, a hashtag that went viral in the wake of platform engineer Isis Wenger, whose image and words were used to advertise OneLogin Engineering, the San Francisco-based company she works for, being told by a backwards-minded Internet that she didn’t “look” like someone employed in her profession. Wenger took to the Internet to right this wrong, wrote a must-read piece on Medium about the problem, and started the hashtag #ILookLikeAnEngineer, calling on the women of her profession to get on social media, post their photos, and show the world what an engineer looks like. Now it looks like the hashtag is going to get a second life, off the Internet, as a (drumroll please) billboard. As the...

J’adore Dior…Especially on Charlize Theron

On a bed of glittering gold satin lies Charlize Theron, a bottle of Dior’s J’adore perfume in her hand. That’s the sensual scene that welcomed Charlize Theron into the Dior universe in 2004 as the spokeswoman for the J’adore Dior fragrance line. Since then she’s stripped bare, climbed up through silken ropes, and posed with Marilyn Monroe—thanks to some CGI—in the brand’s campaigns, though those aren’t the only Dior moments that propelled Theron into the fashion spotlight. On the red carpet she frequently sports Dior ensembles, to the delight of both Hollywood and fashion fans. In honor of her 40th birthday today, see 12 of her best Dior looks in the slideshow above.   written by Steff Yotka Source -

We Discovered the Secret to French Girl Hair

O_lou  The one word that’s always bandied about when describing those uniquely divine creatures who stalk the streets of Paris iseffortless. While the amount of energy that actually goes into appearing unfettered is debatable, one aspect of this laissez-faire look that cannot be disputed is great hair. Strands that manage to appear at once unwashed yet well cared for play a pivotal role in producing that I-just-woke-up-like-this effect.  Gallic hairstylist Wendy Iles knows a thing or two about this kind of casual coif from working with noted French cool girls Léa Seydoux, Lou Doillon, and Marion Cotillard. After years of using her signature three-step system on her celeb and model clients to transform even the most brittle strands into “spun silk,” Iles...
