I’m the Goldilocks of lipsticks. Or I was one recent afternoon. I was inspired by the story on page 98, “The Beauty Dare.” In it, we asked 27 influential women and men to try one of three lipsticks for a day, all shades that were either outside their comfort zone or simply something they’d never worn before, and report back. The words they used to describe the experience? “Empowered,” “flattered,” and “confident.” I wanted to try the experiment myself. The three options (see details, below) were a periwinkle blue, a bright tangerine, and a deep purple. First up was the blue. I was a teenager in the Goth-y ’80s, so this would be my second tour of duty with this somewhat tricky hue. And tricky it was. One Shape editor said…

The season is shifting, and now, so is your nail polish. Hold your hand one way, and your lacquer is lilac, teal, or copper; rotate it a bit, and you’ll reveal periwinkle, gold, pink . . . These new iridescent shades are like optical illusions. “It’s all about your perspective,” says celebrity manicurist Julie Kandalec (@julieknailsnyc), who recommends wearing the same polish on every nail for the most sophisticated effect. Try Essie nail polish in Tiers of Joy (shown on our model) or Reign Check, a metallic teal and dark green mix ($9 each, essie.com). Or discover flecks of plum and gold in Sally Hansen Mega Strength in Small But Mighty ($6, drugstores). Styling by Rachel Stickley/BA-Reps.com; manicure by Tatyana Molot/ABTP.com…

“Makeup helps us express ourselves,” says celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, whose Instagram feed (@rachelgoodwinmakeup) inspires women to do just that. “I’m not into showing you how to look perfect. To me, that’s boring and can chip away at our self-esteem. Instead, I want to help you create personas that empower you. ”Of course, after inspiration strikes (and the images on these pages will help that happen), you’ll want your work to stay put. “The latest makeup is made for that,” Goodwin says. “It’s blendable, buildable, and yet so long-lasting. You simply can’t screw up.” Get after it. Sunset Eyes Vibrant pink eyeliner with an orange-red eye shadow is an uncommon pairing that works “because it’s a mix of cool and warm tones,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “They complement each other,…

Acne patches are the hottest Korean beauty import, and now a bunch of brands are coming out with their own versions. The latest have been shown to significantly reduce the inflammation, redness, and sebum levels of a pimple—sometimes as quickly as overnight. Here’s how they work. “Acne creams can’t always get to the source of the problem. These micro darts infiltrate your zit to zap it faster.” BETTER THAN A TYPICAL BANDAGE Many acne patches are made of a material called hydrocolloid, a substance composed of gel forming agents like or pectin. “Hydrocolloid feels and acts like a layer of skin,” says Kaplan-says. Once it’s applied, the clear, matte oval stays in place (even in the shower) and absorbs fluid, namely the gunk inside your pimple. “That’s why a hydrocolloid patch is ideal…
