People With the Best Freckles on the Internet Crown These 9 Foundations Supreme

Growing up, I always felt jealous of anyone with freckles. (I thought of freckles like constellations, each person's unique and beautiful in their own way.) Two such people are Larsen Thompson and Joyjah Estrada, talented models who wear their freckles proudly and with a whole lot of style. However, it wasn't always the case for these two, and in their respective journeys to embracing their freckles, they've figured out what makeup works for them, particularly when it comes to foundation. Depending on the amount of coverage your foundation offers, it can play up your natural features, camouflage them, or completely hide them. Below, Thompson and Estrada share their past challenges, advice, and holy-grail products that show off their fabulous freckled skin.Read on if you love your freckles ...

The Experts Have Spoken—These 12 2023 Hair Trends Are the Only Ones That Matter

I've been thinking a lot about what 2023's hair trends will be. In 2022, we saw '90s-inspired blowouts make a comeback (we're looking at you, Dyson AirWrap), and with long post-lockdown hair reigning for a while, so many went for the chop, whether it was for the mixie (a hybrid of the mullet and pixie cut) or the boy bob. Color-wise, we saw the revival of '70s blonde, and with so many celebrities going red in 2022, hair salons were seeing every shade being requested in the chair, from glossy copper to deep cherry. After a couple of years of being deprived of our beloved hairdressers, it was only right that we took the plunge and experimented with our hair, right?So what does 2023 have in store? So many influences feed into hair trends and what we ultimately head into the salon for. We're s...

Victoria Beckham Is Obsessed With This Exotic Organic Body Oil, so I Tried It

Victoria Beckham's Instagram Highlight called Beauty is a sacred place for anyone who identifies as one part beauty lover, one part Posh Spice groupie. Even as a beauty editor who's well versed in the realm of skincare, I get so lost in her reel each night that I end up losing quite a bit of potential beauty sleep. Between her favorite of-the-moment skincare picks (like Augustinus Bader The Cream, $290), exciting facials, and supplement recommendations, I'm incessantly taking screenshots. Plus, as someone who tests and reviews the best beauty products daily as part of my job, I can attest to the 48-year-old businesswoman, mom, fashion designer, and former Spice Girl's exquisite taste when it comes to her regimen. When the female version of Benjamin Button likes the same skincare brands and...

I Tried the OG Custom Skincare Brand the Internet Goes Nuts Over

I'm a big believer in routine. I've generally been using the same five skincare products for the past few months, only changing them out when I notice something my skin needs (i.e., extra hydration, combating dark spots). As much as I love sticking to products that have worked for my skin in the past, I know that every now and then, a girl needs a switch-up. I've seen Function of Beauty products online since I can remember. The aesthetically pleasing products are often placed right where you can see them in front of the camera; maybe positioned just behind the subject of the picture or video. The brand's minimalist design, color choices, and individualized production are great, but it's what's in these lovely little bottles that matter.To place an order for customized products on Function ...

I'm a Skin Expert, and These Are the Tweakments That Are Worth Knowing About

Welcome to the wonderful world of tweakments! It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that aesthetic treatments are the next frontier of the beauty industry, an evolution of the professional skin treatments we’ve been having for years, and an innovation of technology that allows us to achieve results that go above and beyond the capabilities of our daily skincare routines. “Tweakments are non-surgical cosmetic procedures, like fillers, Botox, laser treatments, or skin peels, that can make small but significant changes to the face or the body,” explains Alice Hart-Davis, beauty journalist and founder of The Tweakments Guide. “Things like softening wrinkle lines, improving skin texture, replacing lost volume, and tightening the skin.”A few decades ago, tweakments were the preserve of the rich...

3 Eyeliner Application Techniques You Need to Know

Photo:   The first thing you have to know is how to create the most flattering shape for your eyes. According to Mellinger, the fold of your eye is what determines that. "Those with a hooded eye may need a thicker wing in order to see the line when the eye is open," For those with a heavy fold, you may need to create a sort of “bat wing” shape in order for the liner to look complete with an open...

19 Holy Grail Beauty Products That You’ll Love Forever

Photo: Bianca Lambert As a kid and teenager, I spent hours in my bathroom grooming myself. Looking back, that might have seemed a little vain, but it was less about vanity and more about curiosity. I loved experimenting with new products even if the ads on television and in magazines weren't reflective of my skin and hair needs as a young Black girl. But at the time, as I absorbed all of the sto...
