This Is How I Successfully Copied Ariana Grande's Ponytail Using Clip-In Extensions

Ariana Grande's ponytail has been a topic of conversation for about as long as we've recognized the 25-year-old's name. Still, despite its fame, her hair has more conspiracy theories around it than Avril Lavigne's fake death. Although the rumors are endless, fans still wonder how she wears the updo from morning 'til night without needing two Ibuprofen every four to six hours. Hell, not even Camila Cabello could comfortably rock the look for one award show — and Grande's been wearing it for near...

Under-$20 Shampoo & Conditioners The Pros Actually Swear By

Photo: Getty Images. 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. Don't take these products lightly, though — especially if you're on a budget. Besides cleaning and conditioning, this duo can keep your color true, your scalp healthy, and your miscellaneous woes (frizz, split ends, and so on) in check.Ahead, members of our own beauty team and a few A-list Ho...

We Tried Fenty Beauty's Black Stunna Lip Paint On 7 Different Skin Tones

Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.It says a lot if I turn on Instagram push notifications for someone. It says even more if that someone is actually a brand, but Fenty Beauty has left me no choice. Rihanna has everyone on the edge of their seats this week, releasing shades of the popular Stunna Lip Paint like they're surprise album drop s (which, by the way, the Navy would also ...

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...

11 Undereye Concealers That Hide Planet-Sized Circles

You know how they say that youth is wasted on the young? Well, bedtime is wasted on them, too. There are way too many tiny tots who spend time arguing with their parents about when and why they have to hit the sack. Well, kids, newsflash: One day, you'll grow up wanting more sleep (and wanting to live free of rent and other responsibilities, too). If someone told me to go to bed at 8 pm on the dot every night, I'd probably write them a thank you note.With crazy work schedules and afternoon happ...

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...

15 Editor-Approved Makeup Trends Perfect For Fall

It may not be January 1, but we are on the cusp of a new season. As much as we'll miss showing off our retro headbands on a beach in Bali (wait, no, that's Chrissy Teigen), we're more than willing to give the fall season a chance. Just like the beginning of a new year, it's all about taking chances and pushing the boundaries outside our comfort zones.For us, that means trying new makeup, testing trends, and taking plenty of selfies. Our strategy: Scope out inspiration on Instagram and get to wo...

Confessions Of Hailey Baldwin's Makeup Artist

Raised by a beauty school dropout, it was written in the stars that makeup artist Vincent Oquendo would find his way to the Instagram feeds of the Hadid sisters and Hailey Baldwin. But the road to 91,000 followers wasn't as smooth as some might expect. From the sunglasses counter at Saks Fifth Avenue to becoming the BFF to the most famous supermodels in the world, Oquendo's story is nothing short of a mystery and a miracle. Here, he tells writer Samantha Sasso how he got his start, why his clie...

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

Beauty isn't about fitting in, but standing out. That's what Linda Wells, founding editor of Allure and current chief creative officer at Revlon, has always proselytized — and her ethos has turned countless beauty lovers into believers. 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 Beauty Products For Your Mom — According To These Editors' Moms

Every May, sons and daughters around the world are faced with an impossible challenge: What gift is worthy of giving to the woman who brought you into the world (and, as my mom used to say, could easily take you out of it, too)?Mother's Day is a tough holiday — unless, of course, the family members in your life don't play it coy and come right out with what they want.

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...

The Teeny-Tiny Tattoos We Want This Summer

Warm temperatures have finally arrived — fingers crossed they stay — and that means we have clothing options other than boots, jeans, and turtlenecks. For the first time in what seems like an eternity, we can show some skin without shivering. And while most people will take this as an opportunity to get a sunless tan (or a real one), we're here to bask in what we consider to be peak tattoo season.With your collarbones, arms, and ankles finally naked enough to show off, there's no time like the ...

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...

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...

The Best New Place To Buy Your Beauty Products Actually Gives Back

No matter how much money you're willing to invest in your own beauty routine, occasionally there are moments where you'll start to question what, exactly, you're doing with your hard-earned cash.

9 Lip Balms That Get The Job Done — For Less Than $5

Today, December 21, marks the official start of winter. But you could have fooled us. The painful wind chill and low humidity of the past few weeks has left many of us with rough hands, chapped cheeks, and our personal favorite: dry, peeling lips during prime party season. Brutal, indeed, especially considering the fact that no matter how tempting it might be to lick them or nibble away at the dead skin, that only makes matters worse.To help, our editors are giving the rundown on the lip balms ...
