29 Supremely Luxurious Gifts For Under $50 (Save These For Your VIPs)

And while everyone appreciates a little luxury, many aren't looking to spend the money on them — which is why they make excellent presents.While they won't break the bank if you're in the market to give a gift, these purch...

We're Tossing Our Jeans Aside For Leather Pants This Spring

Denim, sweaters, even a wrap dress — just about anyone can pull them off. You don’t have to be a styling whiz to know that a pair of jeans that fit just right and a black turtleneck are undeniably flattering and may never go out of style. On the flip side, some fashion pieces don’t come quite so easy. Case in point, leather pants. While Angelina Jolie and the Spice Girls might’ve perfected the look in the '90s, leather pants definitely take some getting used to.That’s where we come in. With a ...

It's Time To Give Your Bag Collection The Spring Re-Up It Needs

Chances are, the canvas tote bag that's hauled your laptop, lunch and book club-assigned read around all winter is starting to look a little worse for wear.

Janelle Monáe Was Literally Starry Eyed at the Kids' Choice Awards

It's hard not to "ooh" and "ahh" whenever Janelle Monáe hits a red (or in this case, orange) carpet or an event with her consistently striking, bold beauty looks.

The Spice Girls’s Makeup Artist Says Lip Liner Is Back - With a Modern Twist

There were many important aspects to a makeup look in the '90s, many of which we can thank the Spice Girls for. One of the most essential components to a makeup look was lip liner. Still, it's one of the easiest ways to create fuller looking lips with makeup, and back in the day, the more obvious the liner, the better. Although lip liner is a little more subtle now, it's never been more popular. Even Meghan Markle is fond of using some pencil to enhance her look. Who better to school us on turn...
