    Everything We Know About Tarte's New Toasted Fall Palette So Far

    Just when you were getting all jazzed up about the Tarte Clay Play Palette, the brand revealed it is launching another gorgeous eye shadow set for Fall 2017. The newbie is called the Tarte Tartelette Toasted Palette, and here's what we know so far.

    Well, first we have to wait until Fall to get our hands on it. The packaging is a chic tortoiseshell case. Inside it has 12 neutral, warm-toned shade than range from peach to copper. This will definitely be a tool to help you create a "toasty" brown smoky eye. From what we can make out from the boomerang, the colors are inspired by autumn themes, like fire places. Sounds cozy!

    We've reached out to the brand for more info, so stay tuned!

  • These Temporary Tattoos Aren't Just Gorgeous - They're Also Scented

    These Temporary Tattoos Aren't Just Gorgeous - They're Also Scented

    No longer considered a fleeting relic of the '90s, temporary tattoos are more frequently being used as a noncommittal way to rock body illustrations, if only for a few days. According to the latest trend report from Pinterest, temporary tattoos have continued to pick up steam on the platform. In addition, the interest in scented temporary tattoos has quadrupled since last year.

    Much like scratch-and-sniff stickers, scented temporary tattoos are made with a safe and nontoxic ink that is infused with various pleasant scents. In the aforementioned report, Pinterest noted that Tattly is a particularly popular purveyor.

    The temporary tattoo brand currently offers 15 different scented variations. There are natural scents like parsley and sage and sweeter ones inspired by candy. The illustrations are designed by Vincent Jeannerot and Julia Rothman.

    For pictures of this budding trend, look ahead.

  • You Guys, Octopus Buns Are SO In Right Now

    You Guys, Octopus Buns Are SO In Right Now

    As the sun is shining outside the POPSUGAR office and people are starting to clear out for their first Summer Friday, the edit team is still hard at work. But since we editors are always on top of the coolest trends, our eagerness to leave for the weekend does not stop us from having the latest viral hairstyle: the octopus bun.

    The octopus bun is the perfect marriage of the millennial normcore aesthetic and creature-inspired beauty. Who wants to look like a magical, luminescent unicorn when they can look like a creepy-crawly, tentacled creature from the depths of the sea?

    To achieve this high-fashion look, grab your stretched-out scrunchie or hair-tying apparatus. Proceed to form a ponytail on the top of your head, and the last time you put your pony through the loop, don't pull it all the way through. Let the ends hang out the front haphazardly. The result makes a hair mound with tentacles and the chicest bun you've ever seen.

    This look works best when your hair is dirty, your makeup is fading away, and your friends are all hanging out without you at a rooftop bar for happy hour. Bonus points if they're already on their way to the Hamptons or another weekend destination.

    Octopus buns have already become the favorite Summer hairstyle at the POPSUGAR office, and they will for you too . . . whether intentionally or not.

    You're Going to Geek Out Over These Wonder Woman Makeup Brushes

    For beauty junkies who have been waiting for a Wonder Woman film since they were little kids, the new movie and Luxie Wonder Woman Face Brush Set are going to completely blow you away. The collaboration between Warner Brothers and the cruelty-free brush brand combines a massively cool character with some awesome makeup tools.

    The set includes five brushes outfitted with metallic red handles, featuring the hero's iconic "W" symbol in gold on a blue background. Purchasing the limited-edition set will also get you a bronze, logo-encrusted compact mirror, so you can check up on your super makeup throughout the day.

    Although drugstore brands have come out with superhero makeup brushes in the past, they frequently aren't as soft as their plainer counterparts. Fortunately, Luxie has created real tools that will flawlessly blend your makeup while inspiring you to channel your inner warrior princess. Although the set is a little pricey ($95), most Luxie brushes will run you about $20 apiece, making this set a cost-effective choice.

    Hopefully these brushes will inspire you to feel just as strong, fearless, and beautiful as Wonder Woman herself. Read on to see all the items included in the set, and get ready to shop it when it launches on May 24 at 12 a.m. ET.

  • 8 Vitamin C-Infused Products That Will Actually Improve Your Skin

    8 Vitamin C-Infused Products That Will Actually Improve Your Skin

    In case you missed it, vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is everywhere right now - and for good reason. This buzzy superhero of an ingredient can do marvelous things for your skin, and scientists are getting better every day when it comes to creating stable, potent formulations. We'll share some of the best on the market in a sec, including all-star serums, a reparative peel, brightening oil, and a dark-circle perfector that covers while it works. First, though, let's dig into why vitamin C belongs on your beauty shelf.

    "L-ascorbic acid is the only vitamin C that has age control benefits," noted Dr. David J. Goldberg, a nationally recognized cosmetic dermatologist. "Vitamin C ester provides antioxidant benefits, but not the collagen deposition and other anti-aging benefits of L-ascorbic acid. As an antioxidant, it provides protection from free radicals, helps to minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens and promotes an even skin tone."

    Dr. Goldberg said that vitamin C is safe for all skin types and all ages, and that with consistent usage, "you will start to see brighter skin in as little as one week" and "visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in a few weeks to a few months."

    Keep reading to shop some of the best vitamin C-infused products on the market right now.

    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

    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.
