  • How to: Re-create rock-chick-style eye liner

    Mon, 5 March 2012 12:50PM

    In the 1950s and ’60s, liquid liner was all about ultra-glamour, used to elegantly define feline-like eyes, and work back to highly arched eyebrows.

  • Goodness me, Leighton Meester. You look a little bit terrifying with your makeup like that

    Wed, 18 November 2009 7:03PM

    Perhaps Miss MEESTER is really feeling the whole Twilight thing, or perhaps she, like RIHANNA, so loved all the ’80s fashion and makeup the AW 09 shows brought with it, that despite the fact the SS 10 shows have already been and gone, she rather liked the whole theatrical, strong eyes-and-lips business from the previous… more



  • Bar Refaeli and her subtle, summery ’80s makeup at the MTV Euro awards

    Tue, 10 November 2009 8:07AM

    If you’re anything like me (67, fond of bowls, partial to teacake and Earl grey) you looked at the ’80s beauty trend that shuffled in this last few months and said, ‘I get what you’re doing, but probably I won’t be doing that. What I might do, is concede that some of your biggest trends… more

  • First Look: Derek Lam’s ’80s rainbow eye (and how to cheat it)

    Tue, 15 September 2009 7:14AM

    Hey, uh, Derek? You’re all confused. Your mixing your decades. Your models are all sweet coiled curls on top, then party disco eyes down below. Meh. You’re right. You’re a fashion designer. It’s your job to confuse. But do you know what? It’s all kinda cute. Especially with that sexy fairy floss knit she’s wearing. Right?… more

  • New York Fashion Week: The renegades of Fashion’s Night Out

    Sun, 13 September 2009 3:40PM

    Oh, how we LOVE when the famous people come out to play at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. Sometimes it’s at the actual shows, posing and pouting front row, sometimes it’s backstage or around Bryant Park and sometimes it’s off site at special fashiony parties.

  • HELLO SPRING! Oh, I have been waiting for you for the longest time!

    Tue, 1 September 2009 2:52PM

    Dear Spring, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written, but, well I’m terribly selfish and would rather spend time watching movies, like Valentino: The Last Emperor and The September Issue, both of which were great, but I definitely enjoyed Valentino better, because it made me laugh and clap my hands in glee, especially when… more
