These bloody tips are the perfect accent to any Halloween costume, and it's an easy three-step look. Editor in chief of Nail It! magazine Stephanie Lavery created the look using an extremely pale pink as the base. After painting two coats, she went back with a dotting tool to place four random dots along the top of the nail. If you don't have a dotting tool, you can just dab dots using the end of the polish brush. Lastly, go back and connect the dots to the tip of your nail and seal with a top coat. Don't worry about perfection, it should look drippy, after all. For a more gory version, why not try an oxblood hue on a bare nail? Now if only pulling together our Halloween costumes could be this easy. Source: Nail It! Magazine

Jean-Luc Godard hit the nail hair on the head when he said, “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.”  When it comes to inspiration, we think everything is worth looking at (have you seen our Monday Moodboards?). Which is why we occasionally look for hairspiration in unexpected places—more recently atop the heads of some delightfully handsome dudes. If the hair-of-the-moment is a “I don’t own a brush or shampoo,” perfectly disheveled grunge tress mess à la Kurt Cobain [3-5] (just ask Eugene Souleiman, who told us, while sweeping models hair into Jared-Leto-esque buns [33] at Peter Som, “No brush. Hell no.”), we've got to hand it to the guys for getting there first. Something tells us—and this is just a hunch—that Nirvana’s front man likely did not invest in Nivea Cold Creme or surf spray. It just was. (Buddhists would call this "suchness.") And while we can’t promise Mick [22], Steven [27, 28], or Sebastian [13-15] levels of product-free zen-head perfection, remember: that’s what products are for. Whether in the length, shape, color, or texture, man hair can be awesome and sexy, and it can be sexy on you. So choose a chap—perhaps Leo’s mid-‘90s locks (as did Emily earlier this year), Troy Polamalu’s million-dollar-insured mane, or Alex Wang’s blunt cut [12]—and print out some pics for your next appointment.

Here’s the rundown of the Spa Week staffers favorites: Kaitlin, Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream “I’ve actually been keeping mine in the fridge, and it’s a great pick me up! It definitely makes my skin smoother and adds a little glow. I actually just bought another one for my mom!” Brynn, Herbal Recovery Gel “This smells awesome and has perked up my skin! I use it in the morning and at night before moisturizer. I have sensitive skin and it seems to be making a difference.” Laura, Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask “This was such a soothing and calming mask, I almost forgot I had it on! It forced me to relax for ten minutes and when I took it off my skin felt so smooth!” Melissa J., Skin Balancing Face Oil “I have really embarrassingly dry skin–and Jurlique’s Skin Balancing Face Oil has kept my face soft and hydrated ALL day!

I love this skin care line so much I’ve since purchased a few of the other products, too!” Kelly, Daily Exfoliating Cream “Imagine squeezing oatmeal out of a tube but instead of eating it, rubbing it generously all over your face. That’s exactly what the Daily Exfoliating Cream is.

The following post was written by Alison Elle, who blogs at Alison*Elle, and is part of POPSUGAR Select Beauty. As seen at Roberto Cavalli (L), Marni (R) Accompanying many of the bold fashions walking the Fall 2013 runways earlier this year was a distinct, almost subversive kind of makeup. The look was undone but well done, or, "I fell asleep with my makeup on and this is what it looked like when I woke up." Thankfully for all of us nonmodels, smudged, kohl-lined black eyes and berry-stained lips are very translatable into real life, and both are excellent ways of making over our Fall 2013 beauty routines. 1. Even out your complexion with a matte foundation to create a blank slate for your eyes and lips. Try Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation ($36). 2. To get a deep black eye, start with a black cream base like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline ($15). Using a black kohl pencil, smudge liner around the eye keeping things a little messy for a smoldering, smoky look. Try Avon Kohl Eye Liner in True Black ($7), which has a built-in smudger on the end.  3. A volumizing mascara will complete the eyes. Try Lise Watier Dramatique Intense 3D Volume Mascara ($24) or Annabelle Le Big Show Mascara ($10). 4. For the lips, apply a berry lipstick and blot with a tissue to remove any glossiness. Try Annabelle Twist Up Lipstick in Vamp (inquire for US pricing), MAC Lipstick in Sweet Succulence ($15), or Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Racy Red ($8).
