    We Have the Scoop on Every Product From Too Faced's Chocolate Gold Collection

    It's that time of year! Well, yeah, the holidays. But it also means that Too Faced is dropping another covetable collection. Last year, the Sweet Peach collection launched after fans went gaga over the palette in March. This year, the Chocolate Bar palette is getting a major upgrade with the Chocolate Gold collection.

    The cocoa-scented collection includes a shiny palette that looks as if it's been dipped in gold, and it's full of foiled metallics and creamy mattes that smell like chocolate but are also infused with gold. In fact, the entire collection is infused with gold and also includes a new highlighter, bronzer, Melted lipstick, and peel-off eyeliner.

    We have all the products - check out the gallery to learn more about each of these decadent new launches! You can pick up the palette on Nov. 28 and the rest of the collection starting Dec. 8 on TooFaced.com.

  • The Most Effective Dry Shampoo May Be Hiding in Your Makeup Bag

    The Most Effective Dry Shampoo May Be Hiding in Your Makeup Bag

    For the record, I would pretty much try any product, DIY miracle remedy, or voodoo ritual under the sun if it meant extending a good hair day an extra day (or three). So, when a close friend let me in on her little secret that It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Loose Powder ($24) - as in the makeup setting powder you likely already have in your beauty bag - was her favorite dry shampoo, I immediately started digging through my collection.

    As soon as I came across the unsuspecting powder, I decided to put it through the greasy roots test. Read on to see how a lineup of dry-shampoo junkies, an expert stylist, and even the ladies at It Cosmetics have been using this overachieving powder to freshen their roots - with the before and after photos to prove it.

  • Tiny Wedding Tattoo Ideas Every Inked Bride Should Consider

    Tiny Wedding Tattoo Ideas Every Inked Bride Should Consider

    If marriage is forever, then making a long-lasting commitment to your partner via a tattoo is one way to pay homage to your love. Sure, you can step outside of the typical bridal beauty look with an unexpected hairstyle or nail art, but an edgy tattoo makes more of a statement. What makes the tattoos ahead so special is the minimalism. A motif as simple as a tiny heart or script phrase can have meaning but is not distracting. Plus, you can strategically place your ink inside of your ring finger or on a not-often-exposed part of your shoulder.

    Whether you choose to do something solo in ode to your love and big day, or team up with your partner on an engagement ink, there are many ways to interpret this. Keep reading to see gorgeous bridal tattoo ideas!

  • 5 Miss Universe Contestants Ditch Makeup in a Raw Photo Shoot

    5 Miss Universe Contestants Ditch Makeup in a Raw Photo Shoot

    "Minimalism" is far from the first word that comes to mind when you think about pageants. Beauty queens know it's all about having the biggest false lashes, the most intense contouring, and blinding highlighter (you have to stand out on stage amidst the world's most beautiful women, after all). That's why it's so refreshing when they allow themselves to be seen more stripped down.

    We loved it when, earlier this year, seven Miss Universe contestants posed barefaced in a more natural photo shoot. Now, more of them have joined the movement. Five women, hailing everywhere from Spain to Uruguay, skipped their usual pageant makeup for a more low-key beauty look. The results are absolutely stunning.

    See their breathtaking raw portraits, ahead.

    How to Use Deodorant to Keep Thighs From Chafing

    It's summertime and for some people that means chafed thighs. This is the heat rash that develops when women wear skirts and walk a lot in a super hot, humid climate. When sweaty thighs rub together, they can chafe. There's no shame in this. Look at that skinny model pictured down below. Even her thighs touch in the picture and probably they touched even more before Photoshop was used on her. And she's a model. So let's be nice to our thighs and figure out a solution to this summertime problem.

  • What to Look for in a Great Facial Cleanser

    What to Look for in a Great Facial Cleanser
    cleanse-your-face.jpg

    My good friend Janine recently called to tell me she just bought her favorite Chanel cleanser which likely set her back at least $50. I hated to tell her after the fact that there's no need to spend a lot of money on a cleanser with special ingredients in it because you're just washing the product down the drain.

    You can get a basic cleanser from any drugstore. Look for a mild, soap-free cleanser that's formulated for your skin type. In my article below, I run down the best face cleansers for 5 different skin types: dry, oily, combination, sensitive and blemished. This list includes some of the yearly picks by the staff of 'InStyle' magazine plus the tried and true picks selected by myself other beauty experts.

  • Who Should Do Her Own Hair Color...And Who Shouldn't

    Who Should Do Her Own Hair Color...And Who Shouldn't
    Kristin Wig ombre hair colorMany people are perfect candidates for box hair color done at home, but some people aren't. So how to tell the difference? Consider these tips:

    1. If you have gray hairs or brunette hair that you want to lighten up or darken a couple shades then there's no reason you can't do your own hair color, saving yourself 100s of dollars.
    2. If you want to change your hair from brown to blonde or go red or anything drastic, then I highly recommend going to a pro.
    3. Want to add a few face-framing highlights or ombre hair color like Kristin Wig, pictured here? You can do it yourself at home, but it may look better if you let a pro balayage your hair. Finding the right shade is what's most complicated. Hair color is a science, after all, and you run the risk of turning your hair a complete mess of a color.
    4. While there are highlighting kits you can buy to do your own foils or balayage, these are more complicated than all-over hair color and require the help of a friend. Enlist someone to help you, especially with the back of your head.
    5. Covering up a few grays? You can do it yourself, no need to hire a pro.
