11 Tattoos Our Editors Are Eyeing For Fall

Although we're positive we'll never run out of rad eyeshadow palettes to play with or new lipsticks to test, we do know that the beauty trends on our radar aren't necessarily as traditional as they've been in the past. Case in point: Our beauty team is currently obsessed with tattoos, specifically those of the minimal nature.Tats come in every shape, size, and color — and have been around for thousands of years — yet our Instagram feed somehow shows us new and inspiring options every single day...

The 4 Products Our Editors Swear By For Getting Rid Of Acne

Here's a not-so-fun fact for you: Acne is the single most common skin condition in the United States, with more than 3 million cases occurring each year. To put it in perspective, that's about as many breakouts as there are people in Mongolia.Given just how prevalent acne is, it's no surprise that there's a vast selection of blemish-fighting products available on the market, with new ones popping up on Sephora shelves every day. (Or what feels like every day, at least.) This is both a blessing ...

18 Haircuts Our Editors Are Taking To Their Stylists This Fall

There are few things as refreshing as walking into a salon looking one way, and walking out a totally different person. But the urge to get a complete hair makeover only comes about once — maybe twice — a year. And one of those times is right now on the cusp of fall.Sure, some people may still be holding on to the last few weeks of summer, white-knuckling their way through August. But we're prepared to welcome the autumnal season with a whole new look. For us, fall means a potential new hair c...

Eyelash Curlers Top Pros Swear By For Wide-Awake Eyes

Like primers, setting sprays, or ugly skin-care products, eyelash curlers don't get a lot of love. They offer no pigment or color payoff and they're scarily clinical, thus usually hidden in the bottom corner of our makeup bags. But pros tell us that the eyelash curler is one of the most overlooked makeup tools in our arsenal. Curlers can actually make a huge difference in the look of our lashes, drawing the eye upward and creating length and volume, without adding six coats of mascara — that is...

13 Beauty Products We Loved In College — & Still Use As Adults

Most people associate their college years with long days in the classroom and even longer nights playing beer pong. However, we associate college with, well, creamy drugstore moisturizers and cult-classic eyeshadow palettes.Yes, some of our best memories were made throughout those four (or, uhh, four and a half) years as an undergrad, but some of our favorite beauty products were found during that time as well. We may have left the hallowed halls of our beloved alma maters with memories, along ...

These Under-$10 Bronzers Will Give You Glowy Summer Skin In Seconds

For those of us who don't have the luxury of letting our limbs fry poolside at the Hamptons all summer long (or simply don't want all that unnecessary sun exposure), bronzers are the next best thing. A generous dusting on the forehead, cheekbones, and bridge of nose can give you the fresh-off-the-beach glow of your dreams — even if you're the person who always hides in the shade. (Props to you.) What's more? You can do it on the cheap.Ahead, our editors and a few makeup artists share their favo...

9 Under-$17 Foundations The Pros Swear By

We have a love-hate relationship with foundation. On one hand, what would we do without the stuff on mornings when we wake up exhausted, red-faced, and in major need of a complexion boost? On the other, attempting to find the right shade and formula when you're standing in front of a wall of hundreds is like trying to crack a nuclear code.Thankfully, you no longer have to puzzle over finding the right base makeup. And you also don't have to spend more than $17. We tapped Refinery editors and pr...

We Tested $271 Worth Of Foundation — & Here Are Our Honest Opinions

Contrary to popular belief, the FOMO phenomenon is not exclusive to social events and Saturday nights — it can be applied to makeup, too. Even if your current lineup is perfectly good, even great, it’s hard not to feel a little covetous of the newest, most innovative launches, to want to test out $300 worth of mascara or $280 worth of concealer just to say you’ve tried them all.

8 Products Beauty Editors Reach For When Their Skin Is Red & Angry

Your face is like a toddler: It needs lots of coddling, and even if it's generally well-behaved, it will inevitably throw a tantrum. Usually when you least expect it. You know what we're talking about: You get the same brow wax you've been getting every couple of months for years without issue, but suddenly, this time, you've got two burning red welts above your arches. Even the smallest thing can set off mild-mannered complexions, like sleeping on a hotel pillowcase. Then, there are the times ...

We Tried CBD Beauty Products — & Here's What We Thought

It's 2018, and weed is buzzier now than it's been since 1968 — just not for the reason you'd think. The psychoactive plant technically known as cannabis has found itself in an unlikely position as the trendiest skin-care ingredient you don't need a state-mandated medical-marijuana card to buy. But should you really incorporate it into your routine?First things first: When people talk about weed beauty, we're talking about cannabidoil, or CBD for short, the non-psychoactive component of the cann...

The Best Skin-Care Products Under $25

But while you probably have a trusty under-$10 mascara, hairspray, and shampoo, navigating the skincare section can be a lot more difficult.In addition to the vast array of options, there is a lot to think about — like finding a cleanser that won't strip the skin, a moisturizer that won't clog your pores, and an eye serum that will de-puff without irr...

How Much A Beauty Editor's Hair Removal Routine Actually Costs

In 1903, a Wisconsin-born salesman suffered an epic entrepreneurial failure: After spending nearly a decade perfecting a sure-to-be groundbreaking invention, he sold just 51 pieces in his entire first year of business. That businessman was named King Camp Gillette, and his invention was a steel safety razor. Within a few years' time, word got out that Gillette's innovative shaving device was a must-have — and business boomed.The hair-removal industry has come a long, long way since Gillette's o...

How Long Do These Drugstore Gel Nail Polishes Actually Last?

We've all heard the lofty beauty product claims: foundations that last 18 hours, serums that contain wrinkle-erasing magic crystals, and, of course, nail polish that looks and lasts like gel, but doesn't require a UV lamp or the damaging removal process. And we're always a little skeptical — because if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.But in the past few years, affordable nail brands have doubled-down on the idea of long-wear, non-chip polish and seriously upped the ante in terms of...

The Right Way To Bleach Your Hair At Home

There are trends, and there are trends: the ones so beloved by celebs and the everywoman alike that they just don’t seem to quit. They pop up over and over again, until they’re no longer just crazes — they’re signs of our times. The hair trend with perhaps the most longevity? Gotta be platinum. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to your own next-door neighbor is rocking the hue. Even our very own Mi-Anne Chan took the plunge and transformed her locks from brunette to blonde to pastel pink.

Under-$15 Shampoo & Conditioners The Pros Actually Swear By

While most beauty pros can wax poetic about their favorite cheap mascaras and bargain hairsprays, they give the world of affordable shampoos and conditioners considerably less love.

The Under-$30 Skin-Care Buys Our Editors Always Recommend

The word "cheap" gets a bad rap: It's frequently used to describe situations one might otherwise call gauche, like regifting the sweater you snagged off the free table at work or "forgetting" your wallet at home to weasel your way out of paying the bill. But the word, despite its negative connotations, really isn't all bad — especially if it means getting more bang for your buck on what tends to be one of the more expensive parts of your beauty routine: skin care.Affordable finds abound in the ...

How Much A Beauty Editor's Hair Routine Actually Costs

At the risk of sounding too much like a MasterCard commercial, we'll just say this: A good hair day could cost you an arm and a leg in styling products, hot tools, or blowouts — but the feeling that comes from it would still be priceless.How you choose to spend your hard-earned cash depends on the results you're after. If you have fine hair but crave volume, you might splurge on stylers that give you Texas-sized strands. Or maybe you prefer to invest in a cocktail of creams that enhance your g...

Bespoke Shampoo Is Trending — But Is It Worth The Hype?

The Surprising Beauty Rituals That Changed Our Sex Lives

Before sex comes foreplay and before foreplay comes forethought: What do I need to do to make sure I'm feeling as hot as possible in the moment? Sure, sometimes, all it takes is watching a random stranger perform a particularly tender rendition of Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" before you're making out in the back of a karaoke bar. But other times, you need to do a little extra legwork to set the mood.Take Casanova, for example, who was said to have eaten 50 oysters a day in ord...

The Flower Beauty Products Our Editors Can't Get Enough Of

Finding low-maintenance, budget-friendly beauty inspiration from Hollywood celebrities can be tricky. We know damn well that even if they go to the drugstore to buy makeup wipes, that balmy, red lipstick on their off-duty days isn't often under $10, and the three eyeshadows that were mixed to deliver that smoldering smoky eye at the Golden Globes don't come wrapped in plastic seals.
