Dark, under-eye circles are our greatest enemy. And while lack of sleep and the go-go-go lifestyle can definitely be attributed to their presence, the unfortunate truth is that they’re often hereditary.

We’ve battled under eye circles for years, and have found that the best cocktail for making them less visible is eye cream and concealer.
While we normally stick to drugstore brands, we’ve officially become addicted to Perfect Touch …
The eyes are certainly the window to our soul. They mesmerize and tease, just like a burlesque dancer, and they have the power to fill us with great desire and joy. When we think of the eyes, we think of countless actresses who have charmed us with their cat eye and charming winks: Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra, the innocent wide-eyed Emmy Rossum in Phantom of the Opera, Halle Berry in Cat Woman…
So, if you wanted to emulate these smoldering icons, would you use a gel eyeliner or pencil? And which …
When the temperatures escalate, your makeup needs to remain in place. There’s no point in you applying your eyeshadow, lipstick and foundation oh so carefully in the morning only to have them evaporate like desert clouds by noon.
So, how can you keep your color on all the time?
1. Use an oil-free primer on your face so it will not clog pores. Our perennial favorite is Smashbox PhotoFinish Foundation Primer. Use a light-weight, breathable foundation with SPF as much as possible. We love Korres’s Ginger & Vitamins Water-Based Foundation with SPF …

Friday marked the advent of a very special day in New York City with the CEW Beauty Awards, the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. There were winners, losers and best of all, there was Mario Cantone, the irrepressibly witty and charming MC of the Awards Ceremony (and one of the SATC2 stars) who was presented with his own Beauty Award.
The 16th Annual Beauty Awards crowned 31 different products as winners in several categories, spanning from masstige to prestige. In addition to the standard categories, the effervescent Indie Award went to …
We’ve loved her ever since the days of Almost Famous, where she played the ingenue and groupie Penny Lane. And how can we not forget her in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days where she plays the part of the crazy reporter who tries to make Matthew McConaughy nuts?
Now, Almay has signed the actress on as its latest Global Brand Ambassador, and she’ll be the face of new and existing Almay products everywhere: TV, internet, print…the iPad — you name it!

We had reported a little while back on the latest mascara from CoverGirl: the LashBlast Fusion Mascara, but we did not have an actual sample on hand to test. But guess what? We snagged one.
I have to admit, that for a big purple wand that promised happiness like Barney with a round belly, this LashBlast Fusion Mascara absolutely delivered on every single promise: it lifted the lashes, it coated the lashes evenly and superbly – with ZERO deposits at all – and it made my lashes look really long and …
This may well be the decade of the bristle. Or the decade of the eye lash – you decide. From Latisse to Clinique’s Supercurl Mascara which I stash under my bed at night in case some one decides to rob me, I’ve tried countless lash lifters.
Another one looms on the horizon, and it’s Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara, which is exclusive to Ulta.com until March 31st. It has a plastic bristle, and promises to deposit the good stuff evenly over your lashes. It is supposed to “lift, lengthen, volumize and define” like …
Casting pearls before swine may be a past time that Guerlain enjoys doing on a frequent basis, but I must confess that the Summer 2010 collection of the Guerlain Meteorites Perles is luxurious, eye-catching and delicate at the same time.
The Guerlain Meterorites Perles Makeup collection houses the colorful makeup pearls in a rose-motif silver box. They come in three shades:
1. Rose Tint
2. Beige Tint
3. Gold Tint
