Corrine Burns


When we get the rare opportunity to go completely over-the-top with our makeup, we make sure to run with it (and at top speed, mind you). So, with Halloween approaching and a brand new line of badass leather on our hands, there’s no better time to gain inspiration from one of our favorite and most powerful muses, Corrine Burns of Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. Played by the beautiful Diane Lane, Corrine’s glam take on punk rock is our beauty dream come true. So, with the help of our favorite makeup guru, Gloria Noto, our lovely Associate Marketing Manager Boriana, and her adorable dog Hudson, we recreated the look, which we may or may not be rocking long after Halloween is over… 

Read on to find out how to get the look!

Eyeliner Evolution



Audible differences aside, women in music have long had at least one thing in common: Eyeliner—and lots of it. From the theatrical to the streamlined, music’s most memorable women have always been sporting heaps of the smudgy stuff. A few decades ago when there was no HD and nothing short of setting yourself on fire would get you spotted from the nosebleed section of a stadium-sized show, painted faces were one of he best ways to make a visual impact while performing. Here, we cover the best in rock ‘n’ roll eyeliner with both classic and contemporary musical muses, some of which you may have caught at FYF this past weekend.

Boredom Bangs



There are two types of girls: the girls who trust only their hair stylist to touch their hair, and the girls who take their looks into their own hands. Okay, that is ridiculous—there’s actually like a million types of girls. But hair remains to be a contentious issue when it comes to vanity, whether it’s in aspiration of or taking ownership of one’s own vanity.

If you want something done right, do it yourself—makes sense right? And as much as we leave certain primping to the pros (anyone whose first introduction to a Brazilian is via DIY knows this), sometimes you get an itch in a moment of impulsive grandeur to do something semi-permanent to yourself… possibly involving scissors.

Bird Of Paradise



It’s easy to forget how dumb and gross it is living in the city when summer rolls around and nobody’s wearing pants, let alone ample butt coverage (being that this year, the hemlines are rising well above cleavage crescent in the jorts realm). Skin is a beautiful thing, especially when you get to paint it all fancy and show it off.

In possibly the first time for me that a beauty look has been inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary on Netflix, I’m taking a feather (or petal?) from our winged brethren, the bird of paradise. Funny how it’s generally the males in nature who get all the pretty colors to dance-hop around and woo their future baby-mamas. Not to delve into cross-dressing here, I see no problem following suit with these harbingers of tropical paradisco. Here’s a look inspired by the flower or the animal—you pick.

Bowie Brights

BEAUTY-1smaller copy

It’s taken us decades to master the art of applying black eyeliner ever so carefully along the eyelid (pro tip: bad idea to do this while driving). So you can imagine our panic when we noticed that neon under-eyeliner was becoming a thing. To find out how to rock those under-eye brights without going full-blown Bowie lighting bolts, we called Gloria Noto, our go-to makeup guru, for reinforcement. Get beauty-schooled.

Summer Suitcase Essentials With MAKE Creative Director, Ariana Mouyiaris


Well hello there, new favorite make up line. MAKE might be one of the newest brands on the beauty block, but they’ve already nailed that elusive combination of high-quality products, on-trend colors, and super-cool packaging (v. essential). Also: It’s all paraben free, cruelty free, and never tested on animals. Oh, and did we mention that 10% of every sale goes towards the company’s We See Beauty foundation, especially set up to benefit women-led cooperative businesses? Yeah. Kinda awesome.

In honor of its Nasty Gal launch, we asked MAKE’s jetsetting Creative Director Ariana Mouyiaris to share the five suitcase essentials she can’t live without.
