Rainbow Strobing Is The New Upside Down Liner

1

June is Pride Month, which means beauty so colorful and psychedelic you'll probably need to step your game up to match the intense looks taking over the streets. Whether you're heading to a parade this weekend or just looking to show your pride at the office, it's time to incorporate some color into your everyday look. But not everyone is willing — or comfortable — with rocking a full color wheel on their cheekbones via some rainbow highlighter or My Little Pony extensions on their head. So we found one trend that's wearable everywhere, incorporates plenty of color that's Pride-worthy, and still manages to fall under the minimal makeup umbrella. Enter: the rainbow strobe.

Probably One Of My Fav Makeup Looks...

A Perfectly Pulled-Together Summer Workout Look

landscape-1497973758-shiseidobeauty-elle-614170406-newlede
Working out isn't always pretty: There's pushing, pulling, grunting, and the occasional grimace face. Once summer hits, things can get a whole lot sweatier too, with sunny weather singing a siren song, luring you out of the AC'ed gym and into the sunshine. Soaring temperatures don't keep ELLE.com Beauty and Fitness Director Julie Schott from her intense routine, which includes boxing and weight training. Her busy schedule means she usually exercises before or after work; when her session's over, she's typically heading straight to the office or an event, both requiring her to look presentable. The time-saving solution? A more pulled-together fitness look that will help her transition from workout to work (or play) faster. Shiseido's new Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF...

How To Pull Off Red Eye Makeup

hd-aspect-1497534656-header-bright4
It started during fashion week, when models walked the runway at Anna Sui's spring 2017 show with a wash of burgundy around their eyes. At Kenzo, Max Mara, Ferragamo, and Tadashi Shoji, there were more variations on red lids. Then Selena Gomez won the Met Gala red carpet with a combination of red and pink eye shadow, the perfect foil to her otherwise low-key look. The least-likely eye accent was officially having a moment. According to makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes, the bold shade—once relegated to lips, cheeks, and of course nails—is surprisingly easy to execute around the eyes because it's strangely flattering. "For lighter eyes, it really brings out the brightness," she explains. "And on dark eyes, it's a pop...

landscape-1497388815-gettyimages-686811342

Five million people keep up with Sara Sampaio every day on Instagram with good reason: Amidst behind the scenes photos from Victoria's Secret shoots with fellow Angels, red carpet snaps, and enviable travels, she treats everyone to some serious beauty inspo. A true hair and makeup chameleon, the Portuguese model pulls off everything from goth dark lipstick, to beach waves and slicked ponytails, to bold eyes with bold lips, and even bare-faced selfies. We caught up recently with the Moroccanoil beauty ambassador to test out the brand's new sun collection. Here, she shares some of her favorite beauty tips with ELLE.com:

1. She washes her hair every day. "With my hair, I only need two things: A good haircut and a good...

The Skin-Saving Sunscreens You Need in Your Life

366761
In theory, our acknowledgement of the urgent need to apply sunscreen on a daily basis has come on leaps and bounds since a time when slathering on tanning oil and wizening yourself in the sun was deemed acceptable behaviour. But in practice, how many of us actually carry out this important part of a skincare ritual regularly enough? Far from just a preventative aesthetic measure – prematurely crepey skin and lobster red sunburn are certainly not looks to covet – we all know that sunscreen and SPF-containing products protect us from the harmful, skin cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays present in the atmosphere on even the most overcast of days. To ensure that your skin-saving beauty products are never far from...

5 Beauty Secrets Of Flight Attendants

landscape-1496855704-bpkk94-1
You have to give flight attendants mad props, not just because they handle our twice-a-minute requests for more water with a smile, nor because they travel the turbulent skies without tripping or throwing up or both. No—it's because they do all that and more under the heavy, perhaps unfair, expectation that they must be impeccably groomed at all times. (Even on a redeye on which passengers are passed out sideways and upside-down with the kind of receding chin you can only achieve when you don't care anymore.) So how does one keep one's face beat when the lavatory is the size of a broom closet and the carry-on liquid threshold is still a measly 3.4 ounces? Here, the flight attendant's beauty...

As Memorial Day approaches—and with it the promise of three full months of sun, long days, and carefree good times—there’s no better time than the present to think positive summer thoughts: bikinis! swimming! watermelon! The sweet, juicy fruit that often accompanies outdoor picnics and dusky barbecues is perhaps the ultimate warm weather symbol. But it’s also packed with antioxidants and free radical–fighting lycopene, meaning the delicious treat happens to be really good for your skin, too. Unsurprisingly, that has helped make it “Korea’s favorite fruit,” Glow Recipe cofounder Sarah Lee reveals in Vogue’s new June issue.
