By the time I hit elementary school, the white-blonde hair I’d had my entire childhood began to fade into darker blonde. And ever since then, I’ve strived to be as blonde as humanly possible—all while still maintaining my status as a person with hair on her head. As you can imagine, it’s a very delicate balance: Taking any kind of drastic measure to lighten hair has the potential of damaging its health and integrity—and, you know, making it all fall out in clumps—so wh...
We’ll admit it: We live in such a picture-obsessed era that it’s practically blasphemous if you don’t Instagram/Snapchat/InstaStory every second of your day. And it’s equally true that the newest set of Korean beauty products encourages that obsession: Think food-inspired beauty products, skin-loving makeup removers, crazy unique anti-aging serums, and most recently, character sheet masks, which are basically selfie-worthy Instagram treasures for your medicine ...
We won’t bore you by revisiting the whole when-is-it-okay-to-wear-white debate because, well, the debate’s over, and it’s final: White is seasonally agnostic. Yep, it’s fine to wear white literally any day, any month, before or after every calendar holiday. In fact, you can wear an all-white poplin dress, a pleated white skirt, and, yes, white jeans—all year round. More about that last one though: Even if, like us, you wore your pair proudly all winter long, that doe...
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and that means most of our Instas are filling up with pics of peeps on beaches or roof decks or yachts if your friends are fancy AF. But Insta wouldn’t be Insta without those random pics from celebs that make you go, “Wait, what?” Sometimes they’re awkward, sometimes they’re weird, sometimes they’re fails. But they always beg the question, “So… what are you doing?” Kendall Jenner, WYD? Source: Instagram I literally do not understand why four fully-dr...
Not to be a Negative Nancy, but are we the only ones low-key dreading summer? I mean, sure, an 85-degree, pool-side Saturday sounds idyllic, but what about the non-pool moments, when your face sweats so profusely during your morning commute that all of your meticulously applied makeup slides off your face and into your fine lines? Yeah, not looking forward to that. Which is why we’re putting all our summer hopes and dreams into setting sprays, your new, non-negotiable beauty product that...
What good is saving money by resolving to work out at home if your gym clothes start to drain your bank account instead? And sure, if your $120 leggings are your only vice, who are we to judge?—but we’ll wager a guess that dropping three figures on something you’re just going to sweat in isn’t always at the top of your list.

While being professionally good-looking does give them a bit of an advantage, models seem to have a way of dressing for the summer months that makes us forget for a minute how frankly icky July heat can be. Whether it takes the form of denim cutoffs and a slouchy tee or tailored lightweight layers, model-off-duty style is particularly well-suited to balmier days. MORE: 51 Cute Summer Outfit Ideas to Try This Season So let’s push the thought of sweaty subway rides and matted bangs to the si...
Once upon a time, Hilary Duff’s name was known only because of “Lizzie McGuire.” As in—old photos of her refer to her as “Hilary Duff of ‘Lizzie McGuire.’” These days, she definitely doesn’t need a preface or any kind of introduction at all—we all know exactly who she is. But that certainly hasn’t always been the case. Oh, you know what else has really changed and evolved over the years? Her style. MORE: The 60 Most Naked Celebrity Ins...
Using sunscreen is a lot like eating vegetables: You know it’s good for you, you know you need it, you know your mom’s obsessed with it, and yet, ugh. Just ugh. Because sunscreen can be a weirdly intimidating product to slather on your skin, especially if you’ve ever dealt with sensitivity, oiliness, clogged pores, or, most frustrating of all, breakouts. We get it—if you have acne-prone skin, you absolutely do not need some thick, heavy, pore-clogging sunscreen destroying your already an...
We love summer—but with summer comes heat and with heat comes oily skin and trying to figure out how to control it. There’s a fine line between a glowing face and a greasy face, after all. The trick to balancing the seesaw that is our perfect complexion? Lots of exfoliation. Face peels, which tout hardcore exfoliation and expiated cell turnover, are a great option to keep summer grease in control. We reached out to Dr. Hadley King, MD, board certified dermatologist at NYC’s SKINNEY Me...
Welcome to 2017, a time in which eight billion anti-aging products currently line the shelves of every beauty aisle in the world, promising to magically erase any and all signs of wrinkles and fine lines from your face. But let us also welcome you to this harsh reality: No product can truly stop your skin’s natural process of aging (nope, not even that $800 diamond-infused eye cream). And although we’ll probably never find a real-life miracle product—other than retinoids; sorry, they&...
Walking down the aisle is often one of the biggest moments in a person’s life, and, naturally, you’d want all your best girlfriends there with you. But what happens when, say, you have Taylor Swift, Rihanna, or Jennifer Lawrence in your squad? You gotta ask them to be a bridesmaid—or risk them leaving you out of their wedding or, even worse, out of another “Bad Blood”-esque music video.

We’re pretty sure that there’s some sort of secret hair contest going on that nobody told us about, but that Lucy Hale is currently winning—a contest for who can have the most hair changes in a set time period. Because in less than a year, Hale has dyed her hair blonde, then added some auburn streaks to it, then chopped off her waves into a legit, ear-length bob, then dyed that bob jet black, and now, Hale has taken to Instagram to show off her new super-piece-y, messy, combover-like (fake...
We get it: Not everyone can roll up to their office wearing shorts, no matter how deathly hot it gets. But even if you’re not one of the lucky ones with a less-than-strict dress code, that doesn’t mean you can’t get enough wear out of them on the weekend. One problem: What shoes should you wear with shorts? MORE: Why the Summer Suit Could Be Your Warm-Weather Hero While, sure, you can wear anything you want with shorts; that’s your prerogative! But generally speaking, the shorter the sho...
Photo by Tom Medvedich / Tote by Zara / Blanket by Modcloth Now that we’ve skipped spring and gone straight to summer, we can get busy planning our favorite warm-weather pastime: outdoor drinking. There’s nothing better than chilling in a park, at a beach, or on a roof, except maybe chilling in a park, at a beach, or on a roof with some ice-cold vino to go along with our snacks, grilling, music, or weed. The problem: Not every bottle is created equal, and most aren’t...
OK, we need you to pay attention for a second, because we’re about to completely destroy your belief system, which can be a little jarring. Ready? Despite what you’ve somehow been led to believe for years and years, Vaseline does not, in fact, cause acne. Nor does it clog your pores or lead to breakouts or blackheads or any other scary skin problem. In fact, a layer of Vaseline could very possibly be the exact cure for your zits you’ve been looking for. Just hear us out. MORE: 15 Best Wate...
It should be common knowledge now that celebrities are human beings and they too get hurt by vicious online comments. And yet, Internet bullying still exists. Ashley Graham was the latest subject of web trolls after backlash over her 2016 Sports Illustrated cover (which she looked damn good in, btw) made her cry. (Tell us, Ashley. Who do we gotta fight?) While the 29-year-old curvy model received widespread praise for gracing the magazine’s 2016 Swimsuit Edition, she also faced some not-...
Summer’s officially here, friends, which means one thing: It’s time to hit the beach. Obviously, chilling on the sand and listening to the sound of the ocean is meant to be relaxing, so worrying about what to wear to the beach can seem a little counter-intuitive. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t still want to look put together and, well, good. MORE: What to Buy from Net-A-Porter’s Summer Sale Luckily, we’ve noticed that our favorite fashion It-girls a...
Bella Hadid is known for rocking the runway in some crazy outfits (and some dangerously high-looking shoes), so, naturally, a measly wardrobe malfunction is nothing for the modeling pro. The 20-year-old exemplified her skill at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival when Hadid, unfortunately, suffered a minor mishap while walking the red carpet at the event’s amfAR Gala on Thursday. But, like the supermodel she is, Hadid effortlessly recovered and carried on as if her outfit was nothing but flawle...
