Are you mildly addicted to nail foil as of late? Well sista, you’re in luck, the fun doesn’t have to end at your hands thanks to our new super cool Lip Rock lip foil.

Friday, August 9, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Prime Time
We love Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer so much that we’re giving it away as a limited-time gift with purchase!* And though we’ve all heard how great it is to use a primer, it can still be kind of tricky to nail down what exactly it does and how to use it. So we tapped Lori Taylor, Global Pro Lead Artist at Smashbox, to give us the priming basics. Smooth, silky skin, here we come!
Monday, July 22, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: With Lime Crime Zodiac Glitter
Lime Crime’s Zodiac Glitter is one of those multipurpose beauty products that reinforces our belief that a little sparkle makes everything better. Our makeup artist Stacey Nishimoto used it to create a couple of different eye makeup looks that are subtle enough to wear anywhere—and not just the Electric Daisy Carnival. “Now you can wear glitter to Trader Joe’s or Starbucks!” Stacey says. “A touch of sparkle on your lids can be as subtle as the bling on your French manicure. Think of glitter as the fragrance you put on before you leave the house—it’s the last finishing touch. All you need is a spritz or a dab.”

For Chanel’s 2014 Resort show in Singapore, makeup artist Peter Phillips created this two-toned black and turquoise cat-eye that, in our minds, evoked equal parts hell-raising pirate and tranquil turquoise seas. We thought it was the perfect punk-yet-still-pretty look for summer, so we got our own makeup artist, Stacey Nishimoto, to recreate it on Sophia. According to Stacey, the end goal is a clean top, and blended bottom—an architectural black line softened by a blue haze. Here are her steps!
