Current Obsession: FARSÁLI Liquid Glass

I’m constantly in search of ways to get glowing skin. Who doesn’t love that “glass skin” look that is all over Instagram right now? FARSÁLI Liquid Glass is a new formula that gives skin that translucent, radiant, crystal look. I’ve been using it….and here are my thoughts. Liquid Glass is a makeup-skincare hybrid, meaning you can use it on bare skin as a serum, or you can use it before or after makeup application. You can also mix it into your skincare, or even foundation. In the bottle it has...

Can relationship anarchy create a world without heartbreak?

Can you imagine a world without heartbreak? Not without sadness, disappointment or regret – but a world without the sinking, searing, all-consuming ache of lost love. A world without heartbreak is also a world where simple acts cannot be transformed, as if by sorcery, into moments of sublime significance. Because a world without heartbreak is a world without love – isn't it?More precisely, it might be a world without love's most adulated form: romantic love. For many people, romantic love is the...

Weaves For Guys Exist, and This Man Wants to Break the Hair Stigma Around Them

A person can lose up to 50 to 100 strands of hair per day - that's normal. Hair loss, however, is when you lose more than that amount, manifesting in the form of bald patches and male- and female-pattern baldness. Eighty million Americans experience this, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, and for women, there are a plethora of options: extensions, wigs, and weaves (Zendaya can tell you what each of these are), all of which can create the illusion of longer, thicker hair. But for ...

The Perfume Shop: Olfactory Art at The Ryder Projects, London

  In 1993, the Italian-Canadian artist Clara Ursitti had the novel idea of creating an olfactory self-portrait. Instead of the visual supremacy used until then, Clara presented the unusual Eau Claire. A concoction of molecules combined in such a way that it mimics the artist's body odor--vaginal secretions and menstrual fluids, specifically. According to the book Es Liegt Was In Der Luft, writt...

The Surprising Reason Natalie Portman's Makeup in Vox Lux Took 4 Hours To Do

In the age of modern celebrity, the film Vox Lux tells a tale as old as time: young aspiring singer catches a lucky break that catapults her to superstardom, only to watch things ricochet from good to bad at a blistering pace. What makes Celeste (played by Natalie Portman)'s story different, though, isn't in how it originates, or even the music - it's the movie's hair and makeup. "Celeste is a powerful, strong, and dark individual, so it was necessary to express that through [her look]," the fil...

How to Overcome the Gender Payment Gap

Women empowerment has become one of the pillars of feminism.
