Just when we thought our ultimate girl crush couldn’t get any more badass, she turns it up and surprises everyone by chopping off her signature (totally enviable) curls to debut a super short pixie. Last night, Beyoncé revealed her new cut on Instagram, and although fans seem to be divided on the look, we would just like to go on record as saying: brava. With hair that seems incapable of ever looking less than amazing and a face that could probably carry off a buzz-cut, the pixie is a definite success. But wait, isn’t she on tour? What’s going to happen when she stands in front of a wind machine?
It seems there’s yet another trend threatening to steal our children’s innocence and corrupt their wholesomeness. No, you can’t find it on Spotify, YouTube, or even TV. This time, the culprit is at your local shoe store: heeled footwear.
When you think “temporary fake bronze,” you think of dusting on a powder, right? So did I. But there’s a whole other set of beauty products that do the job, too, and with just the right amount of soft color: gel bronzers. I know, you’re scared! Will they be streaky or too hard to apply? I wondered the same thing, so I enlisted makeup artist Maria Verel to teach me how to use them—and now I’m obsessed. They deliver a super-realistic pop of color, but are lightweight enough that you don’t feel like you’re wearing any makeup, which is especially nice on these sweltering summer days. Here’s how to use it.

Last night I had the rare pleasure of visiting artist Hunt Slonem’s studio for a L’Oréal Paris cocktail party. (Hunt happens to be the brother of Allure special correspondent Jeffrey Slonim!) Surrounded by two opera-singing parrots (Apollo and Perky), something like 15,000 square feet of vintage furniture, and Slonem’s whimsical bunny and butterfly paintings, it was a surreal and amazing experience. The new mascara (L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly mascara) is out in October.
