3 Easy and Festive Ways to Display Holiday Cards

Wondering what to do once you receive those holiday greetings in the mail? Here are three simple—yet statement-making—ways to present them.

How to Create a Crown Braid

Braids aren’t going anywhere, so we are breaking down the easiest way to pull off a pretty crown braid (they look hard, we know, but it’s easier than you think). Plus, why buy a headband, when you can make one using your own hair?

How to Create a Rope Braid Updo (It’s Easier Than You Think)

Prepping for the holidays is hard. From school parties to family gatherings, the last thing on your mind is your hair, which is why this updo is the perfect solution for looking pulled together fast without much effort. No time to wash? No problem—this style works great on dirty hair and even helps conceal oily roots.

The Red Lipstick That Truly Flatters Every Skin Tone

The struggle to find the perfect red lipstick is real. Yes, there are so many options on the market, but finding the one shade that isn’t too bright, too dark, or too orangey—plus one that makes you feel glamorous and not like a clown—can take some serious work (and, in turn, require a lot of money and time).

Elf-Sized Treats

It’s no secret that Santa is well-fed on Christmas Eve, thanks to the millions of cookies set out for his consumption (and, by the looks of it, he’s not starving the rest of the year either). Sadly, the hardworking Christmas elves are often overlooked, and despite the hours they spend fine-tuning and tinkering with the toys, no one thinks to leave them a tasty treat—until now.

How to Do the Perfect Cat Eye

As a beauty editor, I consider myself fairly skilled when it comes to makeup. A smoky eye? I nail it. I can even contour. But when it comes to creating a cat eye, I’m clueless. I’m nervous I won’t get the line straight and the flicks even, and I end up skipping top eyeliner altogether. So we called makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes, who has mastered the cat eye, and asked her to share all of her secrets.
