The 18 Best Concealers for Dark Spots, Hands Down

Now that you know what to watch out for, how do you make sure you’re applying your concealer correctly for a natural, flawless look? Tilbury has a few pointers:

1. Prep Your Skin First: Like mentioned above, don’t skimp on your skincare routine. That might include cleanser, a mask, serum, moisturizer, and even some eye cream if you’re dealing with puffiness.

2. Have Two Different Shades: It’s not exactly one-shade-fits-all. “Whenever I am creating a makeup look, whether it is on myself or on a celebrity client, I always use two different shades of Magic Away concealer—a lighter shade for the under-eye area and around the mouth, and a shade that matches your foundation to conceal any blemishes or redness,” Tilbury says. “It’s a trick I learned from Charlotte!

The 18 Best Organic Sunscreens, According to a Dermatologist

We have an idea of what “organic” means when it comes to food, but when the term is used to describe a sunscreen, it becomes a little bit foggier. “This is a tricky question to answer since organic has so many meanings,” says Heather D.

Both entire products or individual ingredients in a product can be labeled as organic.

18 Best Gardenia Perfumes You’ll Want to Wear Every Day

While all of those memories are super comforting, I never once thought, “Oh I love that smell. I want to smell exactly like that right now.” No offense to both my beloved and dearly departed grandmothers. I miss them both and have so much to thank them for, but when it came to choosing a signature fragrance for myself, I never wanted to smell like my grandma or, worse, remind someone else (like a date maybe?!) of their nana.

No, I wanted to forge my own fragrance path, without the baggage. So I said no to gardenias. But, recently, there have been so many new fragrances out there with such fine hints of the scent they’re different from what you might remember of your grandma’s perfume bottle collection. These ones have interesting, unique, and unexpected blends and ingredients. They’re like an exciting homage to the “grandma” classics of long ago,

And just because my favorite beaches are closed for lying out (I’ll be there soon, Malibu!), doesn’t mean I’m not shopping for suits I’ll be wearing this summer—starting on my balcony.

After trying on what felt like one million suits (I’m a 32DD and picky about my tops!), my swim drawer is now overflowing with all the bikini styles you could think of—bandeau, triangle, sporty, balconette—and I’m not mad about it.
