When I learned that a young Dolly Parton used pokeberries as lipstick, I thought it might be like my own childhood beauty trick for lip stain: popsicles. Wonderskin’s Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit ($32, wonderskin.com) has the same effect and comes in over 10 shades. Apply the purple-tinted masque (which makes you look like the opera singer from The Fifth Element), leave it on for 10 to 45 seconds (the longer the more pigmented), then spray the activator to transform it into a peel. The result is...

Sara Camposarcone  FASHION MARKETER,@SARACAMPOSARCONE HAMILTON, ONTARIO, CA Tell me about this outfit. It’s very springlike. The sleeves are part of a tulle top I’m wearing underneath the dress that I call my “jellyfish” top. The dress itself was handmade for me from vintage bedsheets. I paired it with my favorite Hello Kitty tights, Fluevog shoes, and thrifted earrings. My glasses are prescription, and the necklace I’m wearing is a collection of hand-drawn outfits I’ve worn—it was actually made by the same girl who made my dress! How would you describe your style? Bold...

New Zealand designer Ange Sloan is 100 percent over ready-to-wear’s lack of inclusivity Ange Sloan, the woman behind Sloan’s size-inclusive and eco-friendly pieces, hasn’t bought a ready-to-wear garment, other than underwear, in two years. The designer, who grew up “falling asleep to the sound of sewing machines” thanks to her mother owning a clothing factory, believes that off-the-rack clothing doesn’t properly fit most bodies. For her, it can also be deeply triggering. “For me, having my eating disorder past, seeing a certain size would either...
Clothing can be anything the wearer wants it to be, from a symbol of personal expression, to a class signifier, to simply the thing that keeps one protected from the elements. It can also play a part in creating social and political change. In the recently published book Dressing the Resistance: The Visual Language of Protest Through History, author, costume designer, and dress historian Camille Benda explores all the ways in which fashion has been used by women as a tool of activism. From Joan...
 LEARN HOW TO GET THE LINDA LINDAS’ LITERAL CAT-EYE LOOK MAKEUP ARTIST VALERIE VONPRISK created this clever eyeliner design for the band the Linda Lindas, which they wore in their “Growing Up” music video. “Because the Linda Lindas love cats so much—they have cats in their songs and cat merch—the video’s director asked me to incorporate some sort of creative cat-inspired look for the eye makeup. Thus, the kitty liner was born!” The band’s new album, also called Growing Up, will be out April 8 on Epitaph Records. -Kerry-Anne...
