Beauty Basics: Copper Showstopper

Copper is my secret weapon for fall. Gold and silver can be overdone, but copper? It's bold and vibrant and just as eye-catching. It's reminiscent of summer with it's shimmery glow but this warmth is muted in the best way. Like in a "roasting marshmallows in front of a roaring, crackling camp fire" kinda way. Copper is all things fall with a dash of glam and the perfect pick-me up to any makeup look. Loving cuddle season but missing the perks of a radiant tan? The Body Shop's Honey Bronze Brilliance in 'Copper' ($22) and Iman's Blush in 'Sunlit Copper' ($11) will give you a flush of color in dreary November. Dazzle your eyes with must-have metallics like Stila's Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in 'Copper Sheen' ($32) and Jane Iredale's Eye Shadow Palette in 'Daytime' ($55) to get that fiery glimmer. Dare to be different with a bold lip in an unexpected shade like YSL's Tint-in-Oil in 'Drive Me Copper' ($32), Estée Lauder's Pure Color Lipstick in 'Copper Flash' ($26) or OCC's Lip Tar in 'Authentic' ($9). For those who want the color but want to keep it simple, Butter London's 'Trifle' ($15) is your new luminescent love! Cop that copper tone and create your own spark! Click any product to shop!

#NoMakeupMonday

Let your skin breathe! As much as us Glamazons love to contour it, cake it, highlight it, etc., everyone has those "ain't nobody got time for that!" moments. Going makeup free not only saves time in the mornings but your skin will thank you because it's not being primped and primed to perfection. Perfection is overrated! And sometimes you can't be bothered to go through your usual beauty routine and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Not only do celebs and Internet icons make headlines with must-see makeup looks, they also get caught by the paps as bare faced beauties. Everyone knows the magic of makeup and it's refreshing to see the stars without their usual full face of fabulous. But is it really worth the press making news about it? We are all human after all! I say go au natural or avant garde — either way own it! But first make sure your skin is happy! We've curated a list of our fave skin care products for you so you can feel your best on your makeup-free days.

If your moisturizer does not have SPF, it's important to apply a sunscreen to protect your skin. This daily antioxidant serum combats against UVA/UVB rays with a broad spectrum of SPF 50. Not only does it visibly decrease signs of sun damage like dark spots and aging, it improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines with its antioxidant rich formula.

Our Favorite Looks from the 2015 Emmys

The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and what a show it was!

I'd say it was a Sunday evening well spent! But let's get to the real star of the show, the makeup! We come for the awards but we stay for the style! Check out our top looks from this year's red carpet!
