How to Curate the Ultimate Fall Beauty Lineup, According to an Astrologer

I'll be honest. I'd never really considered incorporating astrology into my beauty routine in any way until I chatted with astrologer Susan Miller. With celebrity fans including Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, and Jessica Alba, and a wildly popular monthly zodiac predictions website, Astrology Zone, under her belt, I trust her guidance wholeheartedly. Luckily for us, Miller has partnered with Brandshare to release an astrology-based beauty box, which was created with people's individual signs and elements in mind.Naturally, because I'm a beauty- (and astrology-) obsessed editor, I had a few questions for Miller about her process. I definitely had to know how she goes about selecting products for water, earth, fire, and air signs. That way, I could relay the information and keep it in the b...

I've Been a Beauty Writer for Years—This Magical Primer Is the Best I've Used

Sunscreen and primers have become two of the most important parts of my beauty routine. I’ve become an ardent SPF user for obvious "protecting my skin against damage and cancer" reasons. And primer is always key for helping foundation go on smoother and look flawless—even more so when you have large pores and skin that's 40 years old like mine. I can’t stand it when my foundation seeps into my pores and settles into my lines. No, thank you. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more products that are a combination of SPF and primer, and if I can take a step away from my routine, I’ll happily welcome it! This is why I was so excited to get my hands on Saint Jane Beauty's Luxury Sun Ritual Pore Smoothing SPF 30 ($38). Saint Jane is a brand that I’ve been a fan of since its debut in 2019. The Hyd...

Lady Gaga Relaunched Her Entire Makeup Brand—Here's My Honest Reaction

Lady Gaga’s makeup brand, Haus Laboratories, first launched in 2019 but has recently been given a major revamp, complete with new products, upgraded formulas, a new name—Haus Labs by Lady Gaga—and a new retail partner in Sephora. It may seem like a lot of changes just in the past few years, but they’re all incredibly meaningful, especially to Gaga. The new products represent a marriage between colorful makeup artistry and clean, “supercharged” formulas. These include unique ingredients such as the patent-pending Fermented Arnica, which may help with inflammation. This particular kind of arnica is 860% more powerful than the regular and is inspired by Gaga’s longtime use of the herb to treat her fibromyalgia. The new line has an overall focus on skin health as well as innovation and pretty ...

Calling All Euphoria Lovers: The Show's Makeup Artist Just Launched Her Own Line

When Euphoria premiered in 2019, one of the biggest breakout stars was the makeup created by the show’s makeup department head, Doniella Davy. A showstopping array of crystal-studded lids, glitter tears, neon graphic eyeliner, and other ocular adornments seen on its young stars became a game-changing inspiration for the beauty industry. That’s why it wasn’t too surprising when Davy launched her own makeup brand, Half Magic. Though the brand is supported by A24, the studio that produces Euphoria, it’s all from Davy’s brilliant mind. The glitter eyeliner, lush eye pigments, and stick-on rhinestones all represent her signature aesthetic. That being said, there are also plenty of neutral options, and the line appeals to practically any type of makeup preference or mood. The brand launched with...
