What should I use to define my brows that will last through a day at the lake or beach?
Even if you’re in a less-is-more mood for summer, brows still need to have a place in your summer makeup routine since they are so integral to facial structure and appearance. If you find your usual pencil or powder doesn’t stand the test of time when heat comes into play, try Anastasia Dipbrow Brow Pomade ($23,, which essentially replaces a pencil, powder and wax in one genius pot. Use an angled brush to apply for cleanly defined brows that will stay put, even in high humidity, thanks to the waterproof formula. Available in 8 shades means you’re bound to find a match to carry you through the summer. Tip: run a spoolie through brows after applying for a softened, natural finish. Read more »

Four eyes forever: The Bobbi Brown eyewear collection + how to wear makeup with glasses


Bobbi Brown eyewear

See what makeup you should be rocking behind your frames »

In the 1970s, Sissy Spacek became an unlikely beauty inspiration for makeup artist Bobbi Brown; she had just seen Spacek host Saturday Night Live wearing round wire frames and was immediately drawn to them. Serendipitously, Brown failed an eye test and was told she needed glasses but they weren’t mandatory; she jumped at the chance to wear a pair. “They were not that popular at the time,” recalls Brown over the phone from her New York City office. “It was just about this cool hippie girl, which I really wanted to be.”

Kate Middleton and Prince William showed up on Day 2 of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland and once again, we see her Royal Highness attending today’s events in an outfit that is seriously giving us some serious deja vu.

Prior to watching the athletics together, the royal couple momentarily split off to attend separate receptions hosted by charitable organizations they are patrons for. While the princes visited young aspiring coaches of the Coach Core program at the Gorbals Leisure Centre, Kate attended a small mentoring session for 15 of the top British athletes hosted by SportsAid, an organization that supports and helps the young gen British athletes. If you recall, the Duchess has previously showed her support back in October when she made her first appearance since the birth of Prince George where she elegantly played a game of volleyball in her casual wear uniform.

Snapped by Tommy Ton: “It makes you want to go on vacation”

“August is vacation month in Europe, and most people in Italy go away. So I chose something very summery that many people are attempting right now: the midriff-revealing crop top. I like the idea of Carlotta’s mixed proportions: It’s a crop top over a skirt that has horizontal stripes and is floor-length. She’s able to wear different proportions but also colour—the metallic blue sunglasses match the skirt and the mini Kelly clutch. I know for most women it’s a bit extreme to be wearing those three together, but I think there’s a lesson to be learned in how to play with colour, pattern and proportion. This is a nice end-of-summer look—it makes you want to go on vacation. When I look at this, I think of St. Tropez or Lake Como.”

For those who balk at the thought of wearing your only workout outfit to spinning class each week, look no further than the Duchess of Cambridge, who has made an art out of recycling the same sport-apropos outfit time and time again. At the Commonwealth Games 2014 in Glasgow Scotland today, Kate Middleton went for the good ole skinny jeans (J Brand), navy blazer (Pucci) and cork wedges (Stuart Weitzman) she wore to the Olympics, while on Royal Tour of New Zealand and for various charity events over the past few years. According to guesses from intrepid Kate tweeter What Kate Wore, the uptake in Royal repeats as of late might be a strategic play to offset the cost of Kensington Palace renovations. Also though, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right? How many times a week do you wear skinny jeans?

Channeling fellow Topshop girl and British fashion icon, Kate Moss, the twelve shots feature Delevingne in all of the ingredients required to make a Brit It Girl: leather, fur, a guitar and a mean mug.
