Sihasn: Luxury Upholstered Furniture From This Brand Is a Reminder of Silk Road

Kanjivaram sari. Kansa thali.  Madhubani art. Kantha stitch. Pochampally weave. Tanjore painting. There is a slice of Indian heritage in each of these objects. We take pride in heirloom as they adorn the walls of our homes and occupy our chests,  passed down from one generation to the other. After all, “in the social jungle [...]

Learn Deutsch with iHeartBerlin: Our New Book

It’s been nearly a month that we celebrated our relaunch and book release at Hallesches Haus. But with our Uncensored Berlin exhibition following right after we had to take a tiny break on spreading the news of our new book. “Learn Deutsch with iHeartBerlin” is our Christmas present to all those Deutsch A1 drop-outs in need for some other kind of motivation to get into the German language. We collected some of our most beloved features about the German language (such as the one about casual Germ...

Dr. Pimple Popper Says This Is The Most Intense Surgery She's Performed All Year

To say that Sandra Lee, MD, theDr. Pimple Popper, has seen some craziness this year would be an understatement. Yes, she's cut into a monster butt growth and squeezed pus out of more than we care to count — but her favorite surgery of 2018 will shock even the most hardcore popaholics.When we caught up with the dermatologist, SLMD founder, and social-media phenomenon to break down her year in pimple-popping milestones — which include her viral YouTube clips, the TLC series, plus her most rece...

29 of the Easiest Hair and Makeup Ideas to Kick Off Holiday Party Season

Whether you start the day after Thanksgiving or wait until it's officially December, the marathon of holiday parties is about to begin. What this means for your social calendar is that you pretty much get a month-long free pass to load up on the sparkle, try every updo saved to your Pinterest boards, and finally practice those makeup tutorial looks that didn't quite work for the office. With the exception of the few self-care Sundays that you should give yourself to regroup, here's a month's wo...

12 Gifts For The Biggest Beauty Fan In Your Life

We all have that one person on our Christmas list that knows Sephora aisles better than they understand their medical plans, that can't shop for groceries without donning the no-makeup makeup look, or that prefers watching beauty tutorials over the latest episode of The Handmaid's Tale. So, when the holiday comes around, it's clear that they should get something beauty-related as a gift. But what do you get the person who keeps track of every Ulta launch and has VIB Rouge status?First, you want...

The Best Red Lipsticks, According To Our Beauty Editors

As much as we can appreciate a nude lipstick, sometimes we want a lip color that pops — especially over the holidays. What's a sparkly dress without a statement lip? But even though we're searching for ways to experiment with different shades and even texture ( hey, glitter lips), red lipstick is the gospel truth that will never steer you wrong.The good news: There are tons of red lip options on the market.

Psst: Here Are My No-Fail Secrets to Getting the Perfect Winged Liner

My dramatic winged liner is usually the first thing people mention when they meet me. I've gotten comments like, "They're so perfect!" and "They're so sharp!" Well, I'd hope so - it took my 10 years to perfect. I get it when people say they struggle with winged liner; my hand wasn't always the steadiest, and I did have to click around YouTube to see how to do it when I'd first started refining my technique. (Hint, it definitely takes practice and the right kind of pen.) In hopes to make it easi...

Are you Fed Up explaining and defending? Here's what I do.

Are you FED UP with other people commenting on your diet? I bet these sound familiar: “Plants feel pain too, ya know…” “Oh, I could NEVER stop eating meat [cheese, eggs, oil, etc]!” “You’re not fun to hang out with anymore since you stopped eating [insert non-plant based food].” “Why aren’t you sharing this queso appetizer with us? C’mon just a bite won’t hurt you!” or, everyone’s “favorite”: “How do you know you’re getting enough PROTEIN?” *Sigh.* Whether the person asking is genuinely curious ...

10 Artists You Need To Follow On Instagram Before Your Next Tattoo

Tattoos tend to be unique to the people getting them, but even the most creative minds have mood — and Instagram — boards filled with inspiration. Whether you love colorful, splashy designs or are more into minimal, dotted lines, there's nothing wrong with having a wandering eye for tattoos. The more you check out, the more ideas you'll get, the better your creation will come out.Of course, this isn't to say you or your artist will, or should, plagiarize others' work. However, we do suggest you...

Help! What Do I Wear To That? (Cold-Weather Edition)

And with the first sub-50-degree day, the start of "we can really start dressing" season began. But while creative layering, a good coat, and sweaters with big sleeves can rise to most cold-weather occasions, life still finds a way of throwing in a sartorial curveball every now and then. For instance, what do you wear to your S.O.'s family holiday party — when you've never met the parents, let alone celebrated with them before? What about a ski weekend — when you're still unclear on the differe...

15 Haircuts The NYC Cool Girls Are Wearing This Winter

Any Manhattanite will tell you, New York City is sprinkled with hair inspiration — and it hits you when you least expect it — like when you're hustling to snake through a closing subway door and find yourself staring at a girl with a shiny, tousled bob bouncing off the collar of her camel peacoat. And, all of a sudden, you feel the urge to pop out your AirPod and beg for the name of her stylist from across the pole.If you're currently in the depths of an end-of-year hair rut — you want somethin...

4 Things Every Man Should Have in His Bathroom

The kind of species that men tend to be, an average man would never bother thinking about bath essentials beyond his shaving kit. Unlike women, men like to let things be and keep things simple. Men are all about keeping things casual, relaxed and making sure they get that carefree lifestyle at home. Unlike women, they don’t have “time” to be finicky about little details like bath essentials or keeping everything organized and on point. However, that does not change the fact that they still...

Spring 2019 Drugstore Makeup from Maybelline, Physicians Formula, and More!

Spring 2019 Drugstore Makeup Collections are starting to trickle in from brands like Maybelline, Physicians Formula, Rimmel, and more! I was somewhat shocked to see much new stuff at Harmon’s during a recent trip there because drugstore makeup has been really, really difficult to find lately as many brands are selling their collections exclusively in certain stores or launching on their website first before releasing in stores or sometimes not in stores at all. It was actually really nice seein...

I've Been Obsessed With This $13 Mascara For Months, and It's Finally Coming to America

I get a lot of questions about my lashes and the mascara I use; it tends to come with the territory when you cover beauty products. People actually start by asking if I have lash extensions, and when I explain it's just the mascara, they light up. The good news? My current favorite is from a mass brand. Then I have to gently let them down: unfortunately, the product isn't available in America. Until now. Meet your new mascara obsession: L'Oréal Paris Unlimited Mascara ($13). (I wish the name me...

Just Try Not to Laugh as You Watch Tiffany Pollard's Fenty Beauty Video

"Y'all know that bad b*tch, who's bad enough to show up uninvited? Yeah, that's me." That's just one of the many gems that Tiffany Pollard - aka New York, aka the "original HBIC" (as she introduces herself) - left us with in her makeup tutorial for Fenty Beauty.

7 Simple & Chic Hair Accessories That Actually Work For Grown-Ups

You're not alone if you think padded headbands and scrunchies feel... youthful to a fault. No matter how cute and trendy they look on the website, or Ariana Grande's head, there's something about the hair-accessory renaissance that's inherently retro — and not in the sort of way that works for an interview or date night.So, as a self-respecting adult, what do you do when you want to add just a little something to a mundane look that could benefit from some added decor?

7 BB Creams That Will Make You Ditch Foundation Forever

There was a time, not too long ago, when BB creams completely swept the beauty landscape. The foundation-meets-moisturizer hybrids — which originated in Germany, or was it South Korea? — felt like the kind of innovation we had been waiting for all of our lives. And then, as quickly as they populated our top shelves, they were gone. Maybe it was the onslaught of CC and DD creams that made us, well, OD on the idea. Or maybe it was more dramatic, makeup-heavy looks, like contouring or dewy-dumplin...

Lancome Maison Lancome Oud Travel Set A Lovely Gift Set for Getting or Gifting

A few weeks ago I was very excited to share that Lancome Maison Perfumes were available in Travel Sizes for $35 each. The Maison Lancome Fragrance Collection isn’t cheap at $195-$205 per a bottle so, it was every so delightful to see smaller sizes available for a mere $35 which allowed you to try these scents at a fraction of the cost (0.47 oz for the travel sprays).

Gold Fair in Mayfair by Atkinsons: The Fragrance of Cozy Luxury

  Gold Fair In Mayfair is a beautiful and truly wonderful fragrance. The fact that it was launched just before the holidays is a clever marketing move. It comes in a great golden bottle. Unlike the majority of other gold-colored flacons, this one does not seem vulgar to me; on the contrary, I find it fabulous and formal.  Here, the gold is crackled and somewhat muted.
