Can you think of anything more romantic than a late October wedding?

Now, no offense to the barefoot beach bride and her chill nuptials, but the entire fall aesthetic is pretty darn charming.Of course, you should stay true to your personal aesthet...

Preppy Beauty 101: Essential Makeup for the Preppy Girl

Hi ladies! How are you all doing? This is a very special post that I've really been looking forward to writing as part of my series on preppy style. Before coming to college I had barely any knowledge of makeup! I just tended to stick to the basics, and whenever I tried to do something elaborate I would watch makeup tutorials and totally fail. I'm sure many of you CF readers out there can relate to this experience. While I am definitely not by any definition a makeup expert, I wanted to share h...

15 Makeup Products South Sudanese Women Love

South Sudanese women are ruling the fashion and beauty industries right now, from the runways in Paris to billboards in Times Square and even the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

But models like Alek Wek and her niece Ajak Deng, refugees who escaped the country's long and brutal civil war, opened the door for women like Duckie Thot, a South Sudanese-Australian model who was recently...

NARS Brow Perfector Makes Perfectly Defined Brows Simple

press sample, affiliate links We all know that perfectly defined brows are essential to your makeup look. Brows frame your face and are the finishing touch to your makeup look, plain and simple. Unless you are blessed with beautiful brows like Caci who needs nothing more than a little shaping of the brows every few weeks (the girl doesn’t need to fill them in whatsoever), you are most likely one of the millions that fills in your brows everyday. The problem you might be challenged with is exact...

Proof That Black Lipstick Isn't As Scary As You Think

Most of us refer to the adage "black goes with everything" when talking about clothing because, well, it does. But slap an onyx hue onto your lips and all of a sudden you're deemed "scary," "daring," or "unapproachable." Well, we're here to prove the haters wrong. In fact, if you ask us, the same fashion trick applies to makeup, too."I love matte black lipstick, such a bold and arrogant shade, [it] frames every word that leaves my mouth," says Lydia Pang, daily black lipstick-wearer and creativ...

Every Celeb Is Wearing This Glitter — & You've Never Heard Of It

There’s a meme making the rounds on Instagram that reads, “How to clean up glitter: 1) burn your house down 2) move 3) the glitter followed you. There’s no escape” And it’s not wrong. So when we started noticing an influx of the dopest, glittery-est makeup looks pop up on our favorite celebrities as of late, we were perplexed: Each look shows clean strokes of KiraKira+ shine only in the places where it was intended — without a wayward speck in sight. How the eff? Have celebrity makeup artists l...

Hollywood Is Seriously Digging Blue Eyeshadow Right Now

A lot of people refer to the '90s as the golden decade for style and beauty inspo, but with all due respect, we've got to give the early 2000s its props. After all, those are the years that gave us 100-layer lip gloss, the tiniest crop tops known to man, and a whole lot of denim. And then there's blue eyeshadow. Our favorite pop stars (like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) wore it thick, pastel, and frosty — a technique that's unfortunately immortalized in many of our own embarrassing yea...
