If you’re a loyal Glamour.com and Girls in the Beauty Department reader, you’ll notice we got quite a makeover today, including a new look and new name. Welcome to Lipstick.com, a new site brought to you by the editors of Glamour.
If you love all things beauty (like we do), then Lipstick is the place for you. We understand that the search for the perfect mascara doesn’t rank quite as high as world peace but it’s up there.
We also know you don’t live in a universe with perfect lighting and a wind machine, so we’re here to talk about beauty as it relates to your actual life, from work to date night and everything in between.
Don’t worry—your favorite bloggers haven’t gone anywhere: Hi, Beth! Hi, Petra! Hi, Julianne! Hi, Theodore! You can still rely on them to bring you the latest must-see celebrity hair and makeup news and easy beauty tricks. (Check out our new series “InstaBeauty,” for how-tos delivered in 15 seconds or less.)
We’ve added new voices to the mix too, like our guest editor, supermodel Coco Rocha. Hair and makeup, she says, is the “subtle armor a woman puts on to face each day.” We couldn't agree more. We know firsthand what a profound effect beauty has on how we feel about ourselves, and thanks in large part to readers like you, we’ve seen just how meaningful other women’s relationships with beauty can be.
We’re here to explore those relationships, whether it’s contributor Bee Shapiro surveying “The Most Powerful Haircut in America” or Parisian makeup artist Violette, demystifying the tricks of looking effortlessly chic in “The Real Secret Behind French-Girl Beauty.”
And no matter where you’re reading Lipstick—getting a quick fix at work, swiping through nail polish colors while you wait to get a mani, checking out Instagram for emergency haircut advice—we’ve created shortcuts to help you find what you’re looking for. See for yourself by tapping the purple IDEAS button on your mobile phone! Go on we’ll wait.
Oh, good—you're back. One last thing: We firmly believe a bold lip and a fresh mani can make you feel like you’ve got your act together, even when you don’t, but we also know without a doubt that confidence is the universe’s absolute best-kept beauty secret. So don’t be afraid to take risks, to speak up, and to ask for what you want—both in life and right here on this site. We’d love to hear from you in the comments below or on Twitter or Instagram. You’ll find us @get_lipstick.
