Hot New Eyeshadow and Makeup Palettes for Spring 2019

I didn’t expect to want any new makeup or eyeshadow palettes for Spring 2019 and I was even tempted to put them on my list of trends that must die. But really, who am I kidding? Palettes have always been a major downfall for me. I dunno what it is but I love a good palette. The assortment of shades, the possibilities of creating a ton of different looks, mixing and matching shades, it all makes palettes very fun even if I have several thousand already. It may still feel like Christmas but S...

Pantone's Color Of The Year 2019 Has An Important Meaning Behind It

Following 2018's regal and dramatic Ultra Violet, Pantone's Color of the Year 2019 is Living Coral, an "animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone".A decidedly more natural color than last year's choice, you'd be correct in guessing that the all-pervasive and pressing environmental conversation that's taken place over the past year has played a big part in the Pantone Color Institute's decision."We get energy from nature," a statement from Pantone reads. "Just as coral...

18 Nude Lipsticks That Won't Look Pasty On Brown Skin

The first time I tried on a pair of "flesh toned" stockings from my local drugstore before church, I was sorely disappointed.

For years, whenever I saw a new line of nude lipsticks or glosses from my favorite brands, I'd keep browsing, not wanting to relive my nylon nightmare.Of course, I'm not alone. "'Nude' is a tricky theory, ...
