We all know the inevitable: Our skin will age. One day, it won’t be as smooth, plump, and dewy. The good news: Research shows that when it comes to what you’ll see in the mirror five, ten, twenty (eek!) years from now, genetics may not play as big of a role as once thought. That
Look up “cut crease tutorial” and you’ll see a million faces of beauty vloggers that are different, but the same. A uniform, airbrushed makeup look has become the new normal: Thick, ombré block eyebrows, heavily contoured cheeks, blinding highlighter, fluttering false eyelashes. Picture a Bratz doll—or Kylie Jenner. Some call it “Instagram makeup.” Some call
Ok, so 2018 wasn’t the year you got bangs (or maybe it was!). Either way, the end of year is near and with it, your chance at one final hair makeover. Clayton Hawkins, a celebrity hair stylist who works with Alison Brie, Elizabeth Olsen, and Dakota Johnson has five hair trends to try before midnight
I have been on a lifelong quest to have the softest skin possible. I’m militant about my routines: The second my shower faucet turns off I’m baby oiled and lotioned up slippin’ and slidin’ around my house. Even though I’m by far the most humble person I know, I have to say my soft skin
Get past two security lines and a crush of Gucci-clad girls, and you’ll arrive at L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët, a days-long oceanside party thrown by the champagne brand and hosted—at least for a night—by Winnie Harlow. Like Leonardo DiCaprio and Teyana Taylor, the 24-year-old model has touched down in Miami Beach for the Art Basel fair,
Getty ImagesClaude Medale Lily Rose-Depp has been wearing Chanel since she was in diapers. Literally: She once posted a of herself in her mother Vanessa Paradis’ two-tone heels. One could say that when she became a face of Chanel Beauty back in 2016 it was destiny. As the daughter of Paradis and Johnny Depp, she
Instagram/@marcusrfrancis There are so many new hair styling tools on the market (hello, Dyson Airwrap) it can feel impossible to get a handle on them all. Curling wands, in particular, can be confusing—why should you use it versus a curling iron? What size barrel is best? What kind of styling products are you supposed to
It’s no secret that Jasmine Tookes is the resident beauty junkie among the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Anytime we’ve asked other Angels for their beauty tips, her name always comes up. Romee Strijd calls Tookes an “expert” and asks her to do her makeup before events. Josephine Skriver says she learned to use baby oil after
There’s a reason that beauty experts swear by sticking to a skincare routine for at least a month, and recommend not introducing new ingredients and products prematurely like it’s NBD. Because healthy, young skin is on a 28-day cycle (meaning that’s typically how long it takes for skin cells to mature, move up, then slough

You’re not alone—more than three million people suffer from inflammation and red itchy skin because of a number of factors including weather, stress, and genetics. If you have rash-like symptoms that appear on your arms, behind your knees, or on areas of skin exposed to
Scent is a powerful thing. The fragrance of apple pie can take you right back to your grandparents’ house on a Sunday, while the aroma of freshly ground coffee can have you bounding out of bed, ready to embrace the day. The science But what is it about scent that affects us on such an
Instagram’s explore page is a treasure trove of beauty inspiration. While scrolling today, this bedazzled updo on Vanessa Hong (@thehautepursuit) caught my attention. I hit the “save” button. Then, my editor Leah mentioned she saw the look in person while watching Chanel’s Metier d’arts Show and it was, indeed, a show stopper. The pristine twist!
Pink Lines We’re still in love with the negative nail trend, and it looks even sweeter in baby pink. Simply add a strip of thin tape horizontally, then paint over in your favorite lacquer. Wait until tacky, then remove the tape. Once the color is completely dry, finish the look with a clear top coat.

Instagram If the rise—and reign—of athleisure is any indication, gyms and workout studios have become places you actually get dressed for. There are more stylish workout clothes than ever (looking at you, Girlfriend Collective) and some people even opt to wear makeup while they’re training. Hair, however, has been more of an afterthought: Just throw
People Today, we got the first photos from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding—a multi-day, multi-event, multi-dress phenomenon. While everyone was talking about her 75-foot veil and Ralph Lauren wedding dress, I was over here zooming in on her wedding portrait like, “What’s that lipstick?” It was perfect: red, but not too red, a tint
“I love my wigs because I get to take them off at midnight, like Cinderella,” Jackie Aina jokes while applying a lace front she’s named “Naomi.” It’s just one of the hilarious tidbits she shares while going through her extensive morning routine for an episode of ELLE.com’s “Waking Up With” series.

Wellness blogger and life coach Joanne Encarnacion will be the first to tell you that she wasn’t always the strong, confident woman that you see now. Five years ago, she was depressed, anxious, and filled with self-doubt. And then it hit her: How could she be a good role model for her two daughters if
Instagramemail@example.com Every woman knows how painful it is to accidentally smudge your eyeliner after finally perfecting your cat eye, spill droplets of coffee on a light t-shirt, and worst of them all, walk around with chipped nail polish. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars each month on gel manicures to avoid chipped nails but as a
Try as I might, I don’t wash my makeup brushes as frequently as I should. A dirty makeup brush, caked up with product build-up accumulated over the past week (or month, because honestly who has the time?!) would make any professional makeup artist squeal and hastens the demise of the healthy skin you’ve been hard
If you’ve ever dreamed of velvety soft skin, exfoliators are here to help.

Natural deodorant is a niche item—after all, the research isn’t definitive on whether aluminum, the active ingredient in many readily available antiperspirants, is actually harmful to our health. And since they’re often pricier than the ones you can throw into your cart at the drugstore, it’s a big ask to explore the category. Advertisement –
