To be sure, London is a melting pot of culture, style, and beauty. We just witnessed this in full force on the runways at Marques ‘ Almeida, Ashish, and J.W.Anderson, and we’ve been noting it as prominently on the Instagram feed of one of the city’s most stylish locals, Amaal Said. The 20-year-old Danish-Somali photographer and poet has quickly garnered a following through not only her striking selfies, but also in the illuminating portraits she makes of fellow Londoners—and, she notes, mostly women. Creating a powerful collision of tradition and modernity, Said regularly documents how young Muslim women in her city, and elsewhere, are extending the conversation about style...

The 1 Spring Staple Bloggers Are Already Rocking

Whenever we ask stylists or costume designers for their best industry secret, they almost always have the same response: tailor, tailor, tailor! It's a great tip for sure — fit is key! — but at the same time, hard to execute. Especially when everything you own could use a bit of altering. So rather than become BFFs with a seamstress, we continue to search for pieces that are good as is, and luckily at New York Fashion Week, we found one: cropped pants. Not only do they seem to be a fashion crowd favorite, they flatter every body type, can be paired with heels or flats, and work for both Winter or Spring depending on how you style 'em. Read on...

If you've been blessed with monolids, you know the cat-eye struggle. You may have just given up, or you may have learned to just live with wasting basically half a bottle of liquid liner to get your liner to look right when you open your eyes. Enter floating eyeliner.

A genius woman who has monolids posted a series of photos on Imgurdemonstrating how people with monolids can create a cat eye by placing their eyeliner high above their lash line, right where the eye creases. Check it out:

"The trick is just to keep your eyes open and draw the floating liner as if your eye line is the same as your lash line," writes the woman. We...

Meet Instagram’s New Nail Star: Why The Hoodwitch’s Mystic Manicures Are a Phenomenon

Was it magic that initially lured me to the Instagram page of The Hoodwitch? Who knows, but I was enchanted at first glance with the visually arresting feed of Bri Luna, the 20-something Seattle-based mystic and aesthetician who comes from a long line of folk medicine practitioners. Her wildly popular social media account and website are peppered with information detailing the significance of moon rituals, tarot card readings, and herbs—but with an edge. Tongue-in-cheek memes—“If the vibe is off, we off”; “New moon, who dis?”—offer messages that the L.A. native’s 42,000 followers can certainly relate to.

Beauty bloggers open up a lot of their world (and makeup bags) for us as it is. But on Snapchat, things get even more personal: They reveal that they, too, have puppy obsessions and are impressively adept at snapping a cat-eye tutorial in ten-second intervals, and they even bring us along to experience the euphoria of unboxing a new makeup collection. Here, 11 of our favorite beauty bloggers and vloggers on Snapchat.

Reason You’re Seeing People With Lipstick on Their Hands All Over Instagram

landscape-1455295854-ht-tarte-anti-bulliying-160212

Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, according to DoSomething.org — and if that isn't surprising enough, 88 percent of teens witness cyberbullying everyday, Pew Research Center reported.
These shocking stats are exactly why Tarte Cosmetics and ByStanderRevolution (an organization committed to taking the power out of bullying) teamed up to help create awareness about cyberbullying through their #KissAndMakeup campaign.

Here's how they're hoping you can help make Instagram — and other social platforms — a friendlier place: Tag a person you'd like to share a positive message with, write out your kind caption to them, and then post your picture with a kiss stain on the back of your hand using the @tartecosmetics and @bystanderrevolution handles to spread the word — and love! Don't forget to hashtag #AntiCyberbullying.
