I Need to Brag About the Face Oil That's Given Me the Glowiest Skin I've Ever Had

For my 26th birthday, I treated myself to a facial oil. It seemed like the one "grown-up" step in my skincare routine I hadn't devoted any time to, and I was seeing face oils everywhere. With promises to hydrate, fade discoloration, brighten, and tighten, the seemingly endless number of options to choose from intimidated me. I decided to splurge on one product in particular I'd been eyeing for months: the Mara Beauty Universal Face Oil ($72). If you haven't heard of the Mara brand before, it la...

This Surfboard Photo Could Be the Next "The Dress" Debate: Do You See Bumps or Grooves?

When a fellow POPSUGAR employee was texting with a group of his surf buddies about this Craigslist ad for a used surfboard, he mentioned to the group that based on this up-close photo of the board, it must be damaged, because it looks like something had eaten away at the surface. He quickly sparked a debate with his friends, who either saw wax bumps or wax-filled grooves. We brought the debate to the office, and the photo created a divide: team bumps or team grooves. And yes, the great dress col...

The Bachelor's Makeup Artist Explains Colton Underwood's $575 Skin Care Routine

Before the world delves into which contestants are there for the "right" reasons, or whether it's harder to compete on reality TV than in the NFL, let's first address the elephant in the room with this season's The Bachelor: Colton Underwood is extremely disciplined . . . with his skincare routine. (Wait, that's where you were going too, right?) This is in part due to good genes, but there's also a beauty godmother - and luckily for us, the show's longtime makeup artist Gina Modica isn't wait...

This is the Real Reason Alison Brie's Hair Was Up For the Golden Globes

For the 2019 Golden Globes, Alison Brie traded in her '80s curls for swept-up loose waves. The Glow actress arrived at the awards show with her hair pinned up into an undone french twist, which she told POPSUGAR was on purpose. "I get a perm every season for Glow and then it's teased to death when we're shooting and I'm playing Zoya the Destroya," she said. That's why she kicked off the night with the Nexxus Vitall 8-in-1 Mask ($4) (she's a sponsor for the brand). Then, instead of opting for a ...

Popsugar’s Twinning app was leaking everyone’s uploaded photos

I thought the worst thing about Popsugar’s Twinning tool was that it matched me with James Corden. Turns out, the hundreds of thousands of selfies uploaded to the tool were easily downloadable by anyone who knew where to look. The popular photo matching tool is fairly simple. “It analyzes a selfie or uploaded photo, compares it to a massive database of celebrity photos to find matches, and finally gives you a ‘twinning percentage’ for your top five look-alikes,” according to Popsugar, which deve...

I Tried the Facial Device Victoria's Secret Angels Use, and My Skin Is Glowier Than Ever

If there is one thing I learned from my mom, it's the importance of skin care. I've never gone to bed without taking my makeup off; I'm always trying out new masks, getting facials, and using technology in my skin's favor. This year after attending the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, I couldn't stop thinking about how healthy the Angels' skin looked. So I decided to find out the secret behind their glow - and it was the GLOPulse ($165). The futuristic-looking device was created by skincare expe...
