15 Editor-Approved Makeup Trends Perfect For Fall

It may not be January 1, but we are on the cusp of a new season.

We Tried Everything From Flesh Beauty — & Here's Our Unfiltered Opinion

In an age where #sponcon runs wild and Instagram filters blur the lines between real and make-believe, for the last few decades, Wells has been one guiding light in an industry that seems to struggle with positioning its backbone in honest, thoughtful reviews ab...

The Best Black Beauty Tips We Learned From Our Moms, Grandmas, & Aunties

Black girl magic didn't just come out of nowhere — it's been lovingly passed down from generation to generation. It's how our moms made every holiday season feel like a Disney movie scene, even when some of them barely had two pennies to rub together. It's how our grandmothers created haute couture from mere sewing scraps. It's in the cornrows that our ancestors wore to escape slavery, so that we can now wear them with pride on the red carpet.The point is, the magic is very real, and it just so...

"They're more noticeable since there is more melanin in their body," she says. "This makes it more challenging to treat dark circles for peop...

The Only 8 Pieces You Need This Season, According To R29 Editors

If there’s one thing we look forward to this time of year, it’s finally getting a chance to infuse a little bit of our personality back into our wardrobes (is it just us or does bundling up in a heavy trench or throwing on rain boots just to go outside really kill a look?). From outdoor brunches at cutesy cafes to strolls in the park, this season offers endless opportunities to show off our personal style — and we're taking full advantage of every last one of them. So together with eBay Fashion...

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. And when our favorite brands are pushing out yet another brand-new product on the regular before we can even finish o...

What Ellarie's New Colourpop Collection Looks Like On 8 Black Girls

There's still an unseasonable wind chill affecting most of the East Coast, meaning that we can't necessarily pull out our floral sundresses just yet. But that's not stopping us from revamping our makeup bags — and once the news of Ellarie' s Colourpop collaboration hit our news feeds, we knew that our vampy lipsticks had to take a backseat (sorry, Beyoncé).The nude and berry shades — available in satin, matte, and glossy finishes — aren't trending just because of their affordable price points. ...

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...

We Tried Butt-Masking— & It Was NOT What We Expected

Historically speaking, there is only one way in which to properly use a face mask. Step one: Choose one of more than 4,000 options, including sheet, rubber, clay, bubble, magnetic, peel-off, shrinking, gel, or glitter. Step two: Slather said mask on your face. Step three: Rinse, wipe, or peel it off. Done.That's how you do a face mask, plain and simple — or at least that's what we thought, until Madonna coyly alluded to an off-label usage that involved smearing it all over her behind. But that...
