a manner of speaking

For much of my life, I had a deep-seated fear of public speaking. The anxiety tiptoed in during middle school, then dug in deep by my early 20s. In college, I was set to give a presentation in a journalism class. Right before I started, my professor had walked out of the room to take a call. When I put my note cards on the podium, a large wooden piece fell from the top of it and crashed to the ground. There was something about the shock of the loud sound and the sudden flush of embarrassment that broke me. Nerves all along my scalp fired. I felt strangely, irreparably damaged. I gathered my notes and sat back down without speaking a word. The class sat in awkward silence for…

zendaya’s take

Actor Zendaya Coleman is a true beauty girl—she’s worn every hairstyle imaginable (“My style is not to have one”) and sometimes does her own makeup for red-carpet events. The new face of Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Ruby—a collection of lipsticks in almost every variation on vermilion (plus a few lighter shades)—reflects on how beauty has shaped her life. On evocative scents: “A certain smell can bring you back. Insect repellent reminds me of when I went on my mom’s outdoor science camps every year. She was an inner-city school teacher and would raise money to take her kids. Students come back and say thank you—[education] is the gift you can never take away from somebody.” On being zen: “For me, [applying] makeup eases my mind. It’s therapeutic; it calms me down.” On scars: “I…

crown, meet glory

Smoothing the baby hairs that halo my tight coils in hot, sticky summer weather? Mission impossible. But Pantene Pro-V Gold Series Edge Tamer is up—make that down—for the challenge. The pomade is arganrich (to slicken flyaways) and clear (no white flakes) and provides subtle shine. (So many edge tamers unnecessarily amp up the wattage. I want to flatten my hairline, not blind the masses.) The only finishing touch needed? A stiff edge brush to give my hair the swooping silhouette I like best—and it stays put, no humid plot twists.…

our new obsession in bloom

My editor handed me a small box that weighed about as much as a penny and was inscribed with the words “floral tisane.” “Thank you!” I said. “Also, what is a floral tisane?” Turns out it is expensive dried flowers ($40 for a pack of nine) that will transform any mug into a cauldron of magic when you place one of the blooms in steaming water. As the flower steeps, its stress-relieving, immune-boosting nectar is released. No, these statements have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration. But it is impossible to care because as soon as you drop the sad, shriveled flower into its bath, it starts to flourish again. A tiny botanical resurrection. It is so beautiful to watch that I begin to think maybe that’s…

the simple life

Until I was 28, my skin was a checkerboard of super oily and super dry patches, united by Whac-A-Mole acne: As soon as a pimple would go away, it seemed to reappear on the opposite side of my face. I imagined my hormones running frantically from one side of my body to the other, as though aboard a severely unbalanced boat. But at last, thanks to several dramatic life changes—namely, leaving a stressful job and discovering retinol—I now have good skin. But “good skin” means something different for me than it does for my friend and enemy Emma, who has glowy, poreless skin that stays glowy and poreless no matter what she puts on it. I live in constant fear of upsetting my fussy face. Among many other things (including the…
