Can you believe Chanel is just launching a cream blush now? As a very big fan of Chanel's makeup products, my heart nearly skipped a beat when I got my fingers on Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Révélation ($38). This warm pink blush provides the perfect way to give your complexion a natural-looking flush in the way only a cream formula can. But what impressed me most about the formulation was how light and airy it felt, and how it seemed to have a stay-put, powdery finish. After trying to make cream blushes work for me for years, I've often found that they're too creamy and don't blend well with my foundation, or they're just too thick and I end up looking like I have face paint smudged on my cheeks. But this cream/powder hybrid is truly the best of both worlds.
Washing your face at least twice a day is a no-brainer. But is it working? If you hit the sink morning and night but still find yourself staring at a dull, congested complexion, chances are your cleanser is to blame.
Turns out, a single wash with a surfactant-based cleanser isn't as effective as you thought, since it often leaves behind a film of oil-based debris like sunscreen, long-lasting makeup, pollutants, and your skin's own sebum. That's because all of the above create a barrier that most regular cleansers cannot fully penetrate. Even double scrubbing won't get you the intense, deep clean you need — at least, not with your ordinary cleanser.
Only PreCleanse from Dermalogica is formulated with the plant-based oils that can melt and remove the layers of oil-based debris, allowing your follow-up wash to penetrate even further than before. Simply add water to transform the formula into a milky emulsion that gently and easily rinses debris from the skin's surface — even around the delicate eye area (goodbye for good, waterproof mascara!). Whether you follow up with your regular cleanser or your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser, the Double Cleanse regimen that begins with PreCleanse is the secret to ultraclean, healthy skin and professional results.

It's so easy to fall victim to hair dullness in the cooler months after a Summer of shine. But if you still want envy-inducing shine even after the leaves start to change, there may be a few steps you're missing from your hair routine. We're spilling our tips and tricks so you can have a season full of shine.
Marcel waves, turquoise polish and . . . brow plates? All three of these aspects were present at Gareth Pugh's Spring 2014 show. Drawing heavily from the collection Lady Gaga will drool over, the hair and makeup seemed to be stuck with one foot in the past and one foot in the way, way future. Hair was Marcel-waved on top and then slicked into two asymmetrical victory rolls; one sweeping across the back of the head and the other pulling up the side.
The makeup look was completely bare — save for the massive eye plates that extended from the models' brow bones up to their hair lines in varying colors. To ground the otherwise out-of-this-world look, nails were painted a tantalizing shade of turquoise. Let's just say Paris Fashion Week is already off to a breathtaking start in the beauty world.
It used to be that a trip to Paris meant bringing along an empty suitcase to house all the drugstore beauty buys you'd stock up on. Fortunately, the days of product smuggling are just about over. Most of the products that travelers pine over are available stateside, thanks to that handy thing called online shopping. In honor of Paris Fashion Week, click through to see the top 10 French brands you'll fall in love with . . . and keep your passport at home.
Models are a breed of their own in that they all seem to own a specific hair and makeup look. Whether it's Kate Upton's bold brows and Bardot waves or Karlie Kloss's gamine bob, it's easy to spot a runway staple by her distinct look. We spend hours eyeing their hair and makeup, which is why we've compiled their best looks in one place. Click through to see some of the best beauty moments from your favorite models.
Who doesn't like a little pop art on their nails? And considering today is National Comic Book Day, there's no better time than the present to round up the best cartoon- and superhero-themed manicures from Instagram. We already shared some of our favorite Superman nail art in honor of Man of Steel, but keep scrolling to see more superhero and animated favorites in manicure art!
On Instagram, @asos showed off, "Marvel-ous comic book inspired nails." The gold-bedazzled nails (pictured above) called to mind Wonder Woman's golden tiara. And while we're not quite sure if "Zung" is more "Pow" or "Wham" in comic-book terminology, the bubbled font jumped right off the nail, creating that element of old-school flair. Below, an artist from Wah Nails had a similar idea, using favorite exclamations from comic books in this design.

Sometimes, all you need to do to drastically change up your look is just sweep your bangs to the side. Just ask Taylor Swift. The singer stepped out for the premiere of Romeo and Juliet sporting her typically middle bangs off to the side. While it might have been a subtle change, it completely changed up her look. She finished off with her iconic red lip to keep things at least a little typical. Do you like this new look?
