letter from elizabeth

LIP SERVICE My love affair with red lips actually started with the color pink, from a lipstick that belonged to my mother. The hue was an ultrasaturated cross between bubble gum and magenta, the brand was Princess Marcella Borghese, and it came in an expensive-looking gold twisty tube (look it up on Pinterest if you’re so inclined). It had a perfumy, grown-up scent, and when I applied it for the first time, I knew I’d found my makeup match. For some people, bold lip color just works, and I’m one of them. But I needed my own lipstick identity. Plus, mom wasn’t willing to share. So I moved on to a Revlon red called Fire & Ice. From there, I’ve experimented with endless shades, brands, and formulas, from liners and glosses to…

INCLUSIVE SUNNIES When Hawaiian eyewear founder Ashley Johnson noticed that most U.S. shades tend to rest on her cheeks, she learned they were built with a tall nose bridge and a medium face width in mind. “This leaves out millions of women who have narrow or wide face shapes and low nose bridges, which are common among Black, Asian, Latina, and Polynesian women,” she says. That’s why her Mohala line (from $139, mohalaeyewear.com) offers four nose-bridge…

Despite the state of the world, milestones still matter. And Atlas, Shay Mitchell’s daughter, celebrates her first birthday in October. “Focusing my energy on her feels good. Everything is so new to her, and it’s inspiring to see things through her eyes,” she says. That doesn’t mean Mitchell is ignoring the reality of the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, it has motivated her to teach Atlas healthy habits now. “She puts everything in her mouth, so she has a frequent handwashing routine. We sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song as we wash to make sure we cleanse thoroughly.” Mitchell has also partnered with Safeguard. The hygiene brand is donating $10 million to organizations like Save the Children to promote handwashing and distribute free products to underserved communities. The brand’s Liquid Hand Soap…
