GET THE LOOK: Poison Apple Lips for Fall
Dark, burgundy lips are a fall staple that anyone and everyone can pull off! I love lipstick trends because they’re easy to achieve without spending a lot of money.
On the eyes, keep it simple with nude eyeliner in the waterline and inner corner (Rimmel ScandalEyes in Nude, $4), and generously add mascara to upper and lower lashes (L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Black, $9).
Brows are the secondary feature in this look, so keep them looking natural yet thick with a pencil and tinted gel. Sculpt the brows to make them straight, and brush the brow hairs up and out for a modern look (Revlon Brow Fantasy, $8)
Now for the lips! Whenever you do a dark lip, a liner is a must. Go slowly when applying a dark lip liner, because it’s harder to clean up if you mess up! Color in your entire lip with a dark, wine colored pencil (Jordana EasyLiner in Cabernet, $2). Layer a deep red shade of lipstick over top, blotting between layers to build up color intensity (Wet n Wild MegaLast in Cherry Bomb, $2). Finally, get that cartoon-inspired lacquer shine by finishing with a matching gloss (NYC LiquidLipshine in Wine n Dine, $2)

#tbt: Back to Black — Amy Winehouse
It’s freezing today in the Midwest, so I’ve crawled back into some of my darker albums. Amy Winehouse gives us a jazzy but painful pluck of the heartstrings with “Back to Black.” Her voice is smokey and soulful, and she reveals true vulnerability when she tells us “I died a hundred times/ You go back to her and I go back to black.” Sometimes, when we’re sad or lonely, it’s good to seep into music that is relatable and powerfully empathetic, and Amy, no matter how lonely she was, will continue to give us all something to turn to when we go back to black.
As an art director in the 1970s, Cathy Goldsmith worked with Dr. Seuss. She tells NPR’s Lauren Migaki how the writer would come into the office to introduce his new books:
He would gather everybody in a conference room. And first he would read the words to you aloud, and then he would show you the pictures. … It was fabulous ‘cause you would meet that book — not exactly the way a reader would meet it because it hadn’t all been pulled together yet — but you had that sense of discovery.
Though Seuss died in 1991, a new collection of his lesser-known work comes out Tuesday. It’s called Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories.
