Editor's Pick: Dominique's Beauty Obsessions - 10 Products I Can't Live Without

By Dominique Streeter on
Grace Kelly (Getty)There once was a time when I battled against everything mother nature gave me. I despised my naturally dark and full eyebrows so much that with '90s Drew Barrymore as my guide, I plucked them almost entirely away. I once even tried to lighten them myself with drugstore bleach, which gave me super-attractive orange brows for the better part of a month. As for my skin, I loathed how pale it was, was frustrated with my small lips (which I attempted to fix Kim Mathers style...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick: Tanya's Beauty Obsessions - 10 Products I Can't Live Without

By Tanya Leigh Washington on
I have freakishly sensitive skin. Seriously, it's a small miracle if a product doesn't make me break-out, turn red, viciously peel, or burst into flames. I shudder to think of the small island I could have purchased with the money I've wasted on failed attempts to keep my pale acne-prone fast-scarring skin happy. It has been a maddening search for miracle products that will transform my complexion into the likes of Kate Bosworth or Charlize Theron.As for my hair? It's long, blonde, and...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick: Danica's Beauty Obsessions - 10 Products I Can't Live Without

By Danica Lo on
One of the most glorious perks of working in the beauty industry is that you often get to try out skincare and cosmetics products (1) waaaay before they arrive in stores and (2) for free. After ten years writing about beauty, I'm pretty sure I've tried hundreds—if not thousands—of fancy face creams, hundred-dollar serums, lipsticks and lip glosses priced from $1 to $75, shampoos, conditioners, mousses, gels, polishes, balms, potions, and colorful pots of unidentified pigments.But, at the end...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick - Lauren Frankfort's Fall Wish List

By Lauren Frankfort on
Fall is my absolute favorite season. When I was growing up, I couldn't wait to go back-to-school shopping with my mom every September—not necessarily because we were buying new things, but because fall was the one time of year when, together with my little sister, we'd all go out for a week-long marathon of retail reinvention. I remember going to the Lord & Taylor in town, the smell of fresh leather in the shoe department hitting me as I picked out a new pair of patent-leather Mary Janes. I...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick - Lindsay Schallon's Fall Wish List

By Lindsay Schallon on
(Photo via Net-a-Porter)Confession: I don't do well with summer style. While all my friends are out frolicking beneath the blazing sun in shocking-bright frocks, pretty pastels, and wedge sandals, I'm secretly wishing I could curl up in an oversized sweater, throw on a pair of jeans and slip into a comfy pair of boots. Mysterious fall shades—rich burgundy, saturated army green, and dark-as-night black—always seem to be the ones that catch my eye. I blame this partially on the fact that in my...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick - Dominique Streeter's Fall Wish List

By Dominique Streeter on
(Photo via ShopBop, Amazon and Net-a-Porter)Summer has always been my favorite time of the year and to be honest, nothing bums me out quite like the arrival of cooler temps and shortened days. Apart from getting excited for Halloween (my favorite holiday), the only thing that seems to dull the loss of another season of sunshine is a chance to switch things up in the clothing department. While bright colors, airy dresses and busy prints are my warm weather staples, I prefer a more streamlined...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick - Danica Lo's Fall 2012 Wish List

By Danica Lo on
Here's a fall 2012 Marni shoe.After a long and ultra-balmy summer season, I can't wait for fall—the weather cools down, the thick New York humidity retreats, and the air stays crisp and clear (well, except for the city smog) through at least mid-December.Over the past few years, my wardrobe has slowly degenerated—from my Margiela-Preen-and-Shelley-Fox-wearing London fashion-school days (on my first day of work in New York, I showed up at my ultra-conservative midtown-Manhattan office sporting...Read Full Story

Editor's Pick - Tanya Leigh Washington's Fall 2012 Wish List

By Tanya Leigh Washington on,,,, Photo Editing by Tanya Leigh WashingtonAs a kid, my family and I used to ride our bicycles around the neighborhoods of Fair Oaks collecting colorful leaves and enjoying the temporary reprieve from our sun-burning 110 degree days. "Just look at those colors!" My dad would say, in awe of the fiery oranges, yellows, and reds the trees had turned—a little piece of his own childhood memories from upstate New York right in California. Now, the...Read Full Story
