Lip Service: The Three Lipstick Shades You Need Now

This season, bold lips are set to be big. So give subdued glosses a well-deserved break, start practicing that pout, and invest in these three must-have lipstick shades.

Lipstick Shades for Spring 2014

  1. Electric Orange
    Bright orange shades were all over the S/S 2014 runways – and it’s a trend Hollywood’s hottest starlets have been sporting on every major red carpet. (See: Lupita Nyong’o and Selena Gomez.) Try Lancôme’s Rouge in Love Lipstick in Madame Tulipe and keep the rest of your makeup minimal.
  2. Radiant Orchid
    This hue was dubbed Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, and while you’ve probably seen it on this season’s trending tops and dresses, it also works in makeup form. Turn to Camilla Belle for inspiration and pick up a tube of Sephora+Pantone Universe Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick to execute the look.
  3. Soft Berry
    After being featured on the JOIE runway, this classic shade is making a huge comeback. Look to Micheal Kors GLAM Lip Lacquer in Dame and apply with your ring finger to add color without looking overdone.

Hello. My Name Is Michael Kors, Billionaire.

Yup. Beloved designer Michael Kors has graduated to billionaire status. According to Bloomberg, shares of Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. hit $90.39 yesterday. Since Kors, the chief creative officer, owns a 2% stake in the company, this basically means he’s killing it and can now henceforth celebrate February 4 as his billionaire day.

Time to buy some scratch tickets and keep up.

Guess Who Topped the List of 2013’s Most-Searched Fashion Designers

It looks like Victoria Beckham has yet another win to add to her long list of accomplishments. Just the other day, Bing announced its “Top Bing Searches for 2013,” and the ex–Spice Girl topped the list of most-searched fashion designers. The fact that she launched an e-commerce site this year may have something to do with it, or maybe it’s just that she is insanely popular (along with her husband).

Either way, seems she’s in pretty good company – Michael Kors (last year’s top dog) and Ralph Lauren rounded out the top three.

Michael Kors Just Introduced the First-Ever Instagram Ad

Your typical Instagram feed of puppies, food, and sunsets? Well, that was then. This is now. On Friday, November 1, “Michael Kors revealed the social media platform’s very first ad,” says the Telegraph. The caption? “5:15 PM: Pampered in Paris #MKTimeless.” The photo showcased a rectangular-faced gold watch and a plate of pretty macarons, which now has well over 200K likes.

And we can expect a lot more where that came from. Burberry is already rumored to be the next brand to launch an Insta-ad in the coming weeks. Watch those feeds – you just may see a sponsored post worth double-tapping.

The Fall 2013 Beauty Report: Part 2

The ponytail and bold, red lips are back

The Fall 2013 Beauty Report: Part 2

While the whirlwind that is New York Fashion Week has come to a close, the beauty trends (and street-style photos) are definitely some of the most memorable. The slightly messy, undone looks that we saw on the runways at the beginning of the week were present until the very end. Straight, unfussy hairstyles and minimal makeup (aside from a sweep of copper eyeshadow or a red lip) were at the forefront of almost every runway. So whether it’s the burgundy pouts at Derek Lam and alice + olivia, or a love for the ever-chic ponytail at Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Jenny Packham (tied with a silk ribbon), and Alexander Wang, one thing’s for certain – fall can’t come fast enough.

In Good Fashion: Michael Kors & The World Food Programme

Harnessing fashion to help eradicate world hunger

The life of a designer as established as Michael Kors has to be, at the very least, so, SO exciting – not only the rubbing-elbows-with-every-celebrity-on-the-planet part, but the endless globetrotting, of course.

As Kors notes in a recent press release, though, his travels brought to light the struggles faced around the globe: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that millions of people all over the world are struggling to feed themselves, and their families, every day.” Recognizing this opportunity in the fight against hunger, Kors has joined forces with the World Food Programme (WFP). Over the next few years – and by way of campaigns, events, and products – the designer plans on raising millions of dollars for the WFP.

Check out (and share!) this star-studded PSA, citing staggering statistics regarding world hunger – and, if you’re so moved, text a $5 donation to the WFP. (Instructions can be found below the video.) Then, come this March, be sure to keep an eye out for two limited-edition Michael Kors watch styles, proceeds from which will also go straight to the WFP.
