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.

mc-mermaidlashes-1-1507567871

In case you've missed it, it's officially the year of mythical-creature beauty, namely in the form of mermaids. We're talkin' oceanic mermaid hair, glitter-flecked mermaid makeup, rhinestone-studded mermaid nails, and, just when you thought you couldn't try the trend on any other part of your body, the internet has brought forth mermaid eyelashes. Yup.

If your first thought was, "Hey, I didn't know mermaids had lashes! I didn't know mermaids were real at all!" Then yeah, we're right there with you. But according to our social feeds, these multi-colored eyelashes are an accurate representation of mermaid eyes, in all of their colorful, rainbow-level, ombré glory. And yes, they're officially trending.

Tom Ford’s New Lipstick Collection Includes a Shade Named After Carine

tom-ford-lipsticks2-1503595061

Tom Ford knows how to charm and beguile women with little details like naming shades of lipstick after men, which is what he did with his popular Lips & Boys collection. But Ford is an equal opportunist, and has announced he'll be adding 50 new shades to his Tom Ford Beauty line―this time around, they're all named after the fabulous women in his life.

You may not know Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 by name (yet), but fans of Insecure will recognize her sound from this season's "Hella Good" episode, which featured the infectious song "Attitude." Now Leikeli (pronounced Leh-kay-lee) has teamed up with Milk Makeup to create a music video for "Milk," the first single off of her debut album "Wash & Set."

"I had been playing around with the idea for a minute," she says. "Then GG (Milk Makeup co-founder and creative director Georgie Greville) called and that's when I knew it was time to let them hear what I had so far. Next thing you know we're on the most magical set shooting the video."

5 Under-The-Radar Swedish Beauty Labels To Know, Just In Time For Stockholm Fashion Week

00-lede-swedish-bty-brands
Today marks the beginning of the Spring 2018 shows in Stockholm, and with it, a parade of editors, stylists, and models on the runways in elaborate ensembles. But before turning a blind eye to anything but the clothes, which, if anything like last season, will be minimal with a bit more funk and a bit more street, take a moment to consider that the Scandinavian city is already very well-established on the proverbial beauty map. Following in the footsteps of industry titans like Byredo’s glossy black-capped scents and Sachajuan’s minimalist shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, there is a school of lesser-known labels who are also helping to establish Sweden as a bona fide purveyor of all things beauty. Just look to Verso, whose retinol-based Super Facial...

Nicki Minaj And Mac Are Teaming Up For a New Collection

nicki-minaj-beauty-rgb-300-1503416230

Nicki Minaj is a master of chameleon-like beauty. Whether she's rocking technicolor shades or sultry, muted hues, she never fails to look flawless—or to inspire #beautygoals.
Considering that Minaj's first collaboration with MAC, a set of lipsticks and glosses for the brand's Viva Glam line, quickly became one of the top selling Viva Glam collections of all time, it's hardly a surprise that the star is making a return to the brand's shelves with a new lip collection. This time she's abandoning the vivid pinks and daring lilacs of her original MAC foray for a curated duo of rich nude shades.

Pat McGrath’s New ‘Unlimited’ Makeup Collection Is Fall’s First Mandatory Beauty Binge

pat-mcgrath-first-collection-color-cosmetics-vogue-september-2017
After more than two years of maintaining statecraft levels of secrecy, Pat McGrathsteps into a glass conference room in her Manhattan studio and snaps the curtains closed, fussing over the gossamer fabric to make sure her staff can’t peek inside. “No one has seen this yet,” she says giddily, unloading a series of tubes and compacts from a bejeweled Prada sac—a gift from Miuccia—onto two velvet-lined trays. It is an early morning in late May, a few days before the influential makeup artist will accept the Founder’s Award at the CFDA Awards, and a few weeks before she will fly to Paris to create a holographic crimson lip for Maison Margiela, a highlight of the fall couture calendar. Today’s reveal marks another milestone...

There's so much more to autumn than burnt siena. Think creamy mocha, spiced mahogany, and the vampiest black cherry you ever did see.

Updating your wardrobe is the easy part. Boots, knits, denim, done. But thanks to eleven innovative shades, updating your go-to makeup look for fall can be just as appealing. This season, think beyond brick and beige.

The Coolest Summer Haircuts For Curly Hair

image
For the naturally curly set, summer is the time to shine. We get a break from damaging hot tools, warm weather makes wash-and-go styles so easy to air-dry, and our mascot product, coconut oil, doesn't take, like, a year to liquify! Score. We're not totally in the clear, however. The shrinkage struggle is still very real (is it just me or is it actually worse in the summer?) and humidity brings more frizz, which we know not everyone loves. Nevertheless, if there's any season to try out the bouncy, wavy, or coily styles you've been eyeing, now's the chance. Especially when it comes to new, on-trend haircuts. You already know that short crops are having a major moment, from buzzcuts and pixies all the way to long bobs, so we've rounded up a ton of on-trend...
