Liah Yoo Shares Her Beauty Routine – What It Costs to Be Me

Anything that has AHAs is really great for getting rid of the build up on my elbows, or especially my legs, and my back. I do have an AHA product from Krave called Kale-lalu-yAHA ($25), but I’ll use any AHA product once a week or twice a week after getting out of the shower, and then I’ll use the Nécessaire Body Lotion ($25). For fragrance I always wear Jo Malone London Basil and Neroli ($140), I never change it.

My (mostly) low-key hair care: $654

For shampoo and conditioner I’m using the Naturelab Tokyo repair line ($14 each). I recently discovered it, and it’s been great. I tend to shed a lot, but ever since I’ve switched to these products, my hair actually falls out less. The number one product I swear by is a hair tool: the Dyson Airwrap ($499), it completely changed my hair. I used to heat style my hair a lot with curling irons and straighteners, but it does damage your hair, and I would use a hair dryer which adds another layer of damage. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect dry shampoo, but so far I’m using the IGK First Class dry shampoo and like it ($27).

I get my hair cut twice a year, and I haven’t found a salon yet in New York, but every time I go back to Korea, I go back to my hairstylist. The haircut itself is actually pretty cheap in Korea. It’s $50, which is really why I get it done there. I almost feel like you have to chop your hair to get your money’s worth in New York.

My quick morning skin care routine: $53

My skin is an ever-changing living organ, and I try to adjust my skin care products according to that. You don’t want to over-do skin care—over-wash it, over-strip your natural moisture barrier, or get too excited with AHAs, so I don’t over-exfoliate. I don’t really reach for a high percentage of active ingredients, I try to keep it gentle and mild when it comes to product choices, and I think the best way is to keep my skin hydrated and protect it with SPF.

My morning skin care routine is probably the simplest. I don’t wash my face in the morning to protect my moisture barrier. I learned talking to my dermatologist that your skin is never too dirty overnight unless you have extremely oily skin, so I just try to do a toner wash. I use Laneige Cream Skin Toner ($33), on a cotton pad, and I simply wipe it and swipe it all across my face, so my skin is clean enough, but it doesn’t need to be perfectly washed and stripped first thing in the morning. And then, with the same product, I add another layer but this time I will just pat it in. So the first step is to swipe with a cotton pad, and the second is to bring back the hydration. And then since the Cream Skin is so hydrating and nourishing—especially with the humidity level in New York, it’s enough as a moisturizer itself—I jump into using sunscreen right away. I use Krave Beauty The Beet Shield ($20), which is my own formula, and it offers SPF 50. It’s very pleasant, and works perfectly as a makeup primer, so I can actually finish my routine in the morning with just two products.

My foundation-free daytime makeup: $53

I like to be simple with makeup, especially with my face makeup. I don’t use foundation, and I’ve been foundation-free for the past two years. I started experimenting with this because Michelle Phan is a firm believer that her skin got so much better ever since she stopped using foundation. I used to have super congested acne-prone skin, and then I started cutting back, slowly but surely, from high coverage, to mid coverage, to no coverage. Then I switched to using only concealer, and surprisingly that really helped with my skin recovery process. If you have acne-prone skin, once you’re addicted to full coverage foundation, it’s kind of like a vicious cycle. You’re not really leaving your skin to recover or heal by itself, but also at the same time you want to have that boost of confidence by having that full coverage foundation. It was a really difficult journey, but at the end I’m so proud of myself for jumping into that because it really did help my skin.

Haus Laboratories: Everything to Know About Lady Gaga’s Beauty Line

“The last thing the world needs is another beauty brand, but that’s too bad,” says Lady Gaga in a video posted earlier this summer on her Instagram account, announcing the long-awaited drop of her makeup line, Haus Laboratories. “They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But at Haus Laboratories, we say beauty is how you see yourself.” The video features the superstar dancing with a crowd of downtown-cool models of various gender expressions wearing metallic makeup looks.

Rumors about Gaga’s line have been swirling for months, but Little Monsters are finally getting some answers. Here’s what we know so far.

You’ll be able to shop the line today

While fans were able to pre-order sets of product on Prime Day in July, starting September 17, Haus Laboratories will finally be available to purchase. The line will be live on both amazon.com and hauslabs.com. Over the weekend, Gaga dropped the news that individual shades will be available for purchase, in addition to the bundles that were available on pre-order.

The line has multiple products now available

Haus Laboratories officially kicked off with three products in six shades of each: Glam Attack; multi-use liquid eye shadows, RIP Lip Liners, and Le Riot Lip Glosses. Each product is meant to be multi-use. Lady Gaga told Allure that she uses the lip liners all over as lipsticks, and the Glam Attack shadows can be used all over your face.

“The applicator [a flat doe-foot with a liner-sharp point] on the Glam Attack gives you the opportunity to apply it very heavily, or lightly and shade it out, or to do both,” she told Allure. “You can use it as a highlighter. You could use it on your lips, with the exception of Dynasty [an emerald green]—I would not use Dynasty on your lips. The Haus of Rockstar [three-piece collection] has the Glam Attack called Legend. It’s this beautiful gold. You can put it all over your mouth. It dries down, but it’s not dry. I love a matte lip and I love that feeling of a kissable mouth, but I don’t like a dry, kissable mouth. I wanted something that people could feel really sexy in.”

There is also an Eye Armor Kit, with liquid eyeliner and wing tip stickers, along with a Face Armor sticker mask, a.k.a. Armor Masque No. 1.

Shop Smarter With These 4 Expert-Approved Hacks

She Makes Money Moves is a new podcast from Glamour and iHeartRadio. Hosted by Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry, the podcast shares intimate, unscripted stories from women across the country along with advice from financial experts to help guide those women—and women everywhere—forward. Download a new episode every Tuesday, then visit glamour.com/money for an article like this, with more insights from that week’s expert.


Look, we’re totally on board with shopping. If you’ve made room in your budget for a new pair of shoes, you shouldn’t feel guilty about buying them. It’s the splurges that you didn’t plan for that are a problem: The book that you one-click ordered when a stranger at a bar recommended it in the bathroom line. The bag that Instagram dropped in your feed as a #sponsored ad when you were mindlessly scrolling before bed.

The good news is, even if you’re prone to online shopping binges, you’re probably not a compulsive shopper: Only about 6 percent of Americans display that behavior. But of that 6 percent, 80 percent are women.

Though the guest on the first episode of the podcast—Confessions of a Real-Life Shopaholic—was never diagnosed as a compulsive shopper, the signs were there: She bought things she didn’t need, even when she couldn’t afford them. She shopped impulsively. And she hid her habits. To help her—and any woman hoping to shop smarter—Barry welcomed to the podcast financial expert Farnoosh Torabi. Here, she shares her best advice for resisting the urge to splurge.

Smash that unsubscribe button

Avoid getting more emails that will encourage you to spend. Your web browser—as well as social media sites—are constantly sending you targeted ads based on your browser history—what you’ve been searching for or liking. Targeted ads can really trigger people to spend when they weren’t planning to. So on top of targeted ads, you don’t also need marketing emails from your favorite retailers enticing you to “add to cart.” The next time you see one (or 20) in your inbox, go ahead and click unsubscribe.

Get off social media

Stop scrolling the ‘gram: Instagram can be a wonderful source of inspiration, but it can also send you down a rabbit hole where you’re looking at post after post of other people’s wonderful, beautiful, filtered lives. It can leave you feeling less-than—and to fill that void, you might turn to a quick fix, which is buying something that you don’t really need.

Use the 24-hour rule

Put items in your cart and wait 24 hours to see if you still want them. Studies show that distancing yourself from a purchase for a short while will lower dopamine levels, and you can make a more rational purchasing decision. You may realize you really don’t need it—or even want it all that badly.

Be honest with yourself and others

If you do struggle with compulsive shopping, let the people close to you know your struggles and enlist their help and encouragement. You need accountability to get through any of life’s challenges, including this one.

According to a survey by Fidelity, the sponsor of She Makes Money Moves, 80 percent of women aren’t talking about money with the people closest to them.

Money Is the Ultimate Taboo Topic. This Podcast From *Glamour* Wants to Change That

In my very first issue as the editor-in-chief of Glamour, I promised to help women reshape their complicated relationship with money. In the year and a half since then, we’ve talked about investing, getting out of debt, and prenups—and how much you should be tipping at the hair salon. Today, we’re bringing the conversation to a new platform.

I’m so excited to announce the premiere of our brand-new money podcast, She Makes Money Moves. (It’s produced by Glamour and iHeartRadio, the team behind Broken Harts.)

In new episodes dropping every Tuesday for the next 16 weeks, I’ll introduce you to women from across the country who shared their intimate, unscripted stories about money: how much they make, how much they spend—and how money impacts their identities and their relationships. One guest went back to work four days after giving birth to avoid missing a pay period. Another is drowning in $275,000 of student loan debt. All of their stories are raw, real, and—no matter what your bank account looks like—relatable.

You’ll also meet the financial experts I tapped for advice to help guide these women—and women everywhere—forward.

“Money is the ultimate taboo topic,” said one of those experts, Shannon McLay, the CEO and founder of The Financial Gym. “We’re more comfortable getting physically naked with somebody than financially naked.”

It’s so true. When’s the last time you had an honest, uncomfortable conversation about money? Have you ever?

Part of the problem is that conversations about getting laid off, credit card debt, or not getting the raise you were hoping for can be racked with embarrassment, shame, and confusion—and no one wants to go there when dishing about Love Island is so easy. (A recent survey by Fidelity, the sponsor of the podcast, found that 80 percent of women avoid discussing finances with the people they’re closest with.) Plus, our parents taught us that it’s rude to talk about money.

But the only thing avoiding the topic and being polite have gotten women so far is 80 cents for every dollar a man earns—less, if you’re a woman of color. It’s enough to make you scream—I often want to—but there are better ways to raise your voice:

  • Ask just one friend to join a two-person audiobook book club. (Baby steps.) Pick a straightforward personal finance book, like New York Times Bestseller Financially Fearless by Alexa von Tobel, and agree to discuss it over happy-hour drinks in two weeks.
  • Rather talk to a pro? Check the National Association of Personal Advisors site to find a financial adviser near you with hourly rates. (Again, baby steps.)
  • If you’re due for a raise, ask the guys you work with to spill their salaries before you go to your boss. (I’ve said it before: beer helps.)
  • Share your story. Email me at money@glamour.com and I might enlist an expert to answer your money questions next season.

21 Best Spring Makeup Ideas for 2020

After multiple seasons of no-makeup makeup, where the most exciting thing on the runway was a classic (albeit pretty) red lip, New York Fashion Week finally went big on dramatic makeup for the spring 2020 shows. Fear not, there were still a handful of wearable looks to steal inspiration from, but for the most part the spring makeup backstage was more for spectacle. Think Euphoria-inspired eyes (it was by far the biggest buzzword artists kept citing), creative takes on eyeliner, and gorgeous washes of disco blush. Try them out or don’t—the point is, you’ll appreciate them nonetheless. Here, our beauty editors to reveal the looks that stopped them in their tracks backstage and paused their thumbs on their feeds. Scroll and stare.

Julia Stiles on Playing the Only Hustlers Character Not Stripping or Scamming

Besides, not playing a dancer isn’t a big loss for Stiles. “I don’t want to say that I’d be too shy [to play a stripper], because I feel like that’s shaming the women that do it,” she says. “But it would’ve taken a lot for me to have the guts to do that—and balance on those stiletto platform heels. It would have taken a lot of training.”

That doesn’t mean she didn’t prep for the movie, of course. Stiles met with Pressler ahead of filming after reaching out to her on Instagram. Both women were working in New York at the time, but they had young kids and finding childcare was difficult. So, they arranged a play date. “I brought my son over to her apartment, and he proceeded to destroy her living room while we talked about everything that led to this point.” Stiles asked Pressler every question she could think of—how she found out about the story, how she got in touch with the women, the process of turning it all into a film.

“There were so many interesting anecdotes I took away from our meeting,” Stiles says, “but I also really learned that she’s got a lot of compassion for the people she writes about. She showed up at Rosie’s—the woman the Constance Wu character is based on—with a box of cannoli as a sort of peace offering to say, ‘I’m not here to trash you, and I’m not here to take advantage of you. I want to know more about you, the person. I’m on your side.'” Stiles says she’d also text Pressler during filming with questions like, “How much do you use a notepad?”

The goal was to not do an imitation of Pressler, but rather learn about her process. “I told her we were going to take liberties,” Stiles says. “We took a lot of them with my wardrobe in particular. I think Lorene wanted me to wear a Chanel jacket to represent privilege, that Elizabeth is somebody who had a lot more options growing up than probably Ramona or Destiny did.”

Stiles found other ways to channel Pressler. “I thought there was something so great about being the only person that has compassion for these women,” she explains. “The dancers run in a world where they’re constantly being exploited and taken advantage of. My character develops a close relationship to them, and it’s the only person who’s not trying to get something from them. She’s actually looking at them going, ‘Who are you, and what’s your version of the story?'”

This did, of course, mean she wasn’t in the movie’s biggest set pieces. “I wasn’t at the club, which looked like it’s a lot of fun to film,” she says. “My scenes were a lot quieter.” Because of that, Stiles didn’t have a full view of how Scafaria’s vision would come together. “Once I saw the movie, I was happy to be the character in the film that grounds it and brings it back to a bit more of a serious note.”

This Is What It’s Like to Live With Paranoid Schizophrenia Symptoms

Many people break their lives into before and after. A major loss, a medical procedure, an event so radically disruptive that it splits your life into two distinct chapters. I’m no different. the timeline of my life is punctuated by the first time I started showing schizophrenia symptoms.

Before I suffered my first episode of psychosis at twenty-seven, I was a college graduate, working as a professional social worker, a homeowner, and going through the process of divorce from my first husband. I was outgoing, I laughed easily, I had a good sense of humor, I went to parties, I made friends quickly, I was fiercely independent and capable. I took flights by myself to South America, the Middle East, and many countries in Europe to meet up with my parents who had been working overseas since my junior year in high school.

My first break from reality crept into my life slowly, seemingly banal at first—I cried a lot and was experiencing symptoms of major depression. I started isolating myself from other people. But then I started to believe that a therapist I once worked with was plotting with a well-known judge and other county and city officials to set me up. I became painfully paranoid. Delusional.

By the time my mom and aunt tried to get me admitted to a hospital, I had been actively psychotic for three weeks. I was unable to sit still, pacing around the rooms I was in. I barricaded my mom into a bedroom because I thought people were after us, and I was attempting to jump out a second-story window to run away. My mind was racing in circles trying to make sense of the distorted experiences.

It is difficult to get someone admitted to a hospital involuntarily. If the person isn’t showing signs of being a danger to themselves or others, they have to willingly sign themselves in for treatment. As a social worker, I knew the system. I was aware of the laws regarding commitment, so when I was asked, “Are you thinking of harming yourself?” I would reply, “No.”

That was true, but it didn’t mean that I was okay. The paranoia I was experiencing was so significant and overwhelming that I was convinced that once I went into the hospital, I would be drugged, tortured and forced to testify that people I knew were criminals. My mind went around and around in circles playing out these terrifying scenarios.

After several days of going from one hospital to another with my mom and aunt, I finally agreed to sign myself in. It wasn’t that I was less paranoid but I had resigned myself to the fact that whatever and whoever was out to get me was too powerful—I might as well give up. I resigned myself to the idea that I’d have to undergo whatever terrible things they had planned for me just hoped I could survive.

In the locked unit of the hospital, the nurses conducted drug tests and blood work. I was clean, so drug-induced psychosis was ruled out. But that meant there had to be some other cause. For the first five days of treatment, I was kept away from other residents. In my paranoia, I stripped the bedsheets off of my bed in an effort to calm my fears. I was convinced I was being poisoned through the cloth. My non-compliant behavior meant I couldn’t be trusted around the other patients. I’d never felt so alone.

After a week in the hospital, the medication flooding through my system finally reached a therapeutic level in my blood—the paranoia and delusions started to recede rapidly. I started to regain traction with reality, but after everything I’d been through, “reality” wasn’t the same as It was before my episode. In my new reality, I had to accept that fact that I was living with a severe mental illness and a mind that could seriously, and at any time, betray me.

Kendall Jenner Debuted Bright Blond Hair at London Fashion Week

Jenner certainly had the ability to walk in New York Fashion Week this year, but instead she decided to take it all in as a showgoer. “It’s a lot more mellow to just go,” she told Vogue. “But I won’t lie, today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk.’”

One of the models in question she watched was Bella Hadid, who also recently went through a pretty major blond transformation herself. Perhaps she was Kendall’s inspiration for going over to the bright side? Or it could be the rest of the Kar-Jenner fam, who are no strangers to constant hair changes—Kim, Kourtney, and Kylie go blond and back like it’s nothing—who gave Kendall the push to blond. Whatever the reason, be prepared for this specific shade to be everywhere this fall.

People Are Praising Netflix’s Unbelievable for Starting Important Discussions About Sexual Assault

It seems like everyone is watching—and talking about—Netflix‘s Unbelievable. The series, based on a true story, centers on Marie (Kaitlyn Dever), a foster teen who reports to local authorities that she was raped. But the officers, all men, don’t believe her story, citing inconsistencies in her statements. After several conversations, the cops essentially strong-arm Marie into saying she made the entire thing up. Her life unravels in the aftermath: Her friends disown her, she receives a demotion at work, and the city sues her for filing a false police report. But then, three years later, two female detectives (Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) start looking into several rape cases similar to Marie’s story and deduce that the same man is committing these assaults.

The show isn’t easy to watch. It’s gritty, graphic, and can be triggering for people who have experienced sexual assault. But the response to it online is overwhelmingly positive: Many are praising the series for its nuanced depiction of what sexual assault survivors go through when reporting their cases. “This is literally why women struggle with admitting to being sexually assaulted because they’re forced to relive the moment 60+ times, and then poked and prodded at by our legal system,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“If you’re someone whose first response to a rape being reported is ‘but they could be faking it’ you should watch the series #Unbelievable and educate your spiteful selves,” tweeted someone else.

Other viewers are calling for female officers to handle female sexual assault cases after watching Unbelievable. The series does an excellent job at showing how empathetic Collette and Wever’s characters are toward the women they work with. The male officers who handle Marie’s case are cold, mechanical, and have an obvious bias against her. “I just started watching #Unbelievable and I firmly believe that a rape victim (if female) should be interviewed by a woman detective,” one person tweeted.

Read some more reactions to Unbelievable, below.

The show is currently streaming on Netflix.

Liam Hemsworth Was Reportedly ‘Blindsided’ by Miley Cyrus’ First Statement About Their Split

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s breakup was one of the most talked-about celebrity news stories of the summer. The couple, who dated for a decade and tied the knot last December, announced their split via a statement from Cyrus’ rep: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” it reads. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

So many people were surprised to read this—including, according to Page Six, Hemsworth, who was reportedly “blindsided” by the statement. Per the publication, the actor wasn’t given a heads up about the statement going public. He just saw it on his social media feed—like the rest of us.

Take this information with a grain of salt, obviously. It’s possible Hemsworth knew about the actual statement but not the roll-out plan. And it’s also possible this isn’t true at all. That being said, a second source tells Page Six that, before this breakup announcement, Hemsworth was trying to work on the marriage and didn’t want to go public with any information. Other sources say the same thing about Cyrus: that she “fought” to make the relationship work. As always, though, we won’t know anything for sure until Miley Cyrus or Liam Hemsworth makes a comment.

Which might not happen any time soon. Please see: Hemsworth’s only comment about the split, which he posted to Instagram on August 12. “Hi, all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,” he wrote. “This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets.”
