SPOILER ALERT: The most amazing concealer ever is called……..Amazing Concealer. Just let that sink in. Here was my convo at Sephora a month ago in NYC: Me to the uber-groomed gay man with that “I know my shit” look about him: “I’m searching for a new concealer; any suggestions?” Him: “Ohmygod yes girl, we have the […]

There is nothing wrong with being bleach blonde in the dead of winter (especially if you live somewhere warm all year round…bitch). But lots of ladies who lighten their locks in the summer want to go a tad darker when football season (A.K.A. fall) starts rolling in. I recently saw my hair whisperer Mandy Gispert […]

***Guest post by Lynsey of Sugar Free Ear Candy*** My most innocent girlfriend called me the other day and asked if she should get a Brazilian wax. Before I could begin laughing at the mere thought of her taking her monogrammed panties off in front of a stranger to get her virginal crotch ripped to […]

There are 93874298374893274 beauty products on the market today (give or take), but many of those will be gone in a year, into the #BeautyFail abyss. Yet some have been around since before your mom started wearing rouge and are still popular as ever because well, they work. Here are ten old-school classics that have […]

I’m just going to say it. It kinda’ blows my mind that beauty pageants still exist in 2014. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that females choose to dedicate their formative years to participating in contests where they are judged on how they look in bikinis and prom dresses, average […]

FOMO was setting in hardcore this week for fashion/celebrity/NYC enthusiasts who weren’t at Fashion Week (and even for those who were but didn’t have A-lister access). Lucky for us: Instagram. In case you weren’t sitting next to Rihanna at Alexander Wang or backstage primping with Karlie Kloss, take a look and feel like you were […]

Peace up, A-town down, shawty! What? Sorry. I got excited because it’s been a minute since my last A List and I can’t wait to share some things going down in our glorious city from food to beauty to BALLS. Now that I have your attention… Bring Me Back Something French Krog Street Market, Ponce […]

I treat my nails like my wine preference: Dark in the winter, light in the summer. Sure, you can rock any nail color any time of year if you do it with confidence, but once chilly weather hits, I reach for those charcoals, hunter greens, blacks, and burgundies. Cajun Shrimp, you can hibernate until (at […]

Here’s the deal with mani/pedis and me: I’ll go the salon with a friend so we can catch up, talk about boys, and drink wine (complimentary at Passion) then go drink more wine (across the street at Barcelona). Have I been boozing at the Barcelona bar for hours whilst wearing those disposable flip-flops? Maybe. Numerous times. […]

Every summer, I go to Dewey Beach (the happiest place on Earth) for a week, and by Day 5, I am a zombie version of myself from all the partying. I somehow make it through the week, but then I need another full week to recover and a full month to get my body back […]

Phew. Thanks to Racked (and my former DailyCandy editor Lauren), I just read this article by Gala Darling inspired by a piece on The Cut titled, “Why Not Admit We Didn’t Wake Up Like This?” Nevermind that chain reaction (I just wanted to credit everyone), but take a look at THIS doozy of an observation from […]

Welcome to HELL, everyone. Sorry, I mean summer. (Same temperature; I get confused.) A few weeks ago I was sitting outside with a guy friend and without even skipping a beat in conversation, grabbed a napkin and put it down my shirt to wipe my boob sweat. Thank God he was just a friend, but […]

Sometimes you can’t help but judge. Like if you met someone and they (seriously) said, “Look me up on MySpace,” I hope you’d back away as quickly as possible. Luckily, no legitimate human being still uses MySpace so that would never actually happen, but there are PLENTY of other things people still do that blow my […]

You guys, I’ve tried a whole lotta’ beauty products; I’ve praised many, I’ve dissed others, and I’ve chosen not to write about some. I actually had an incident recently when a company sent me a pricier product and kept stalking asking me about when the post was going up. I finally had to say, “Listen, I […]

In April, Nair flew me to NYC to shoot a series of “summer style and beauty video vignettes” and I wasn’t exactly sure what it entailed, but a few days before the shoot I received this in an email: “Are you comfortable in a swimsuit on camera?” I’m sorry, what? Did you say swimsuit? On […]

If you’re a regular W+P reader, first of all: I love you. Second of all, you probably know I’m on a constant mission to bring my hair to its maximum potential. And I thought I had all the tools and tricks…until I received my Harry Josh pro dryer. Now, this is a $300 piece of […]

Dear dry shampoo, How do you know me so well? How do you know that it will be Thursday night and I’m planning to work out, shower quickly at the gym sans hair washing, then grab a quick, casual bite with girlfriends and go home, but then I’ll have a couple glasses of wine at […]

Full, shapely, well-groomed brows make a face that much more beautiful–they’re expressive, draw attention to your pretty peepers, and add dimension to your mug. Some might even say they’re the most important feature! Just ask these gals… Some women recognize the importance of good brows, but others have no idea how they can totally change your face […]

Face contouring: The magical trick professional makeup artists use to completely transform people’s faces and turn even the most #BasicBitch into a supermodel. Or Lana Del Rey… Ok that was dramatic (and I also just wanted an excuse to hashtag #basicbitch), but seriously…makeup (and specifically face contouring) can do some crazy shit, proven by the photos […]

When the sock bun came out and some of my friends were galavanting around town with these big, perfect updos, I had a tantrum. Not only was I not coordinated/talented enough to master the technique, my hair wasn’t thick enough to make it work. Every sock bun post on Pinterest was like, “See? It’s easy!” and […]

In case you haven’t read the Internet or a magazine or watched TV or talked to anyone for the past decade, it has been proven that sun exposure ages your skin like nothing else. I know, crazy right? I think of the days in my early twenties (#SpringBreak BITCHES!) when I would bake in the […]
