We took a look at women's relationships with their cellulite and how they've handled their body image challenges. Not every woman reported what could be called "love" for her dimples, and that's okay: Body acceptance isn't about adoring every part of your body at all times. Still, each one expressed appreciation for what her body does for her and a growing sense of peace with its appearance. "It should be a goal to keep showing more diversity, more self-love, and more positive energy around womanhood, because I think that's been lacking so badly for the last 30 years in the media."

“Mass media tells people that having a double chin, stretch marks, or dark areas on their skin is unsavory — but I’m here to change the narrative.” @lizzobeeating for our Disruptors Issue.
The beauty industry is changing. Our Disruptors Issue celebrates the bravery of individuals, unfazed by barriers, haters, and self-doubt, who are redefining societal notions of what's considered beautiful in 2018.

Queen Bey's go-to makeup artist, @sirjohnofficial, just revealed the genius way he kept her makeup perfect throughout a 24-song setlist. “I have a quote, ‘I don’t bake, I cook,’” said Sir John. #AllureProTip: Use a loose powder or translucent powder to absorb the oil in the foundation, concealer or T-zone.

#AllureTrendWatch: Neon Lashes & Lids — new shades of vibrantly-hued mascaras and brightly-colored liquid liners are making their way to the streets (and our eyes, of course).
#AllureProTip - Thicker Looking Hair
A half up, half down hairstyle is ideal for those with curly or kinky hair, as the narrowness at the top & the fullness at the bottom of the style makes for the perfect juxtaposition. Prior to clipping back your hair at the top, use a dry texture spray for added grip and to boost volume.
