Aside from our trials and tribulations of dealing with the opposite sex, the one thing that bonds women around the world is beauty. You know, conspiratorial whispers with a friend about a skincare product so miraculous, it was probably created by God himself. Or discussions with acquaintances about a mascara that makes lashes so long, you can open doors by fluttering them. Or spotting a stranger with a nail colour/haircut/lipstick so gorgeous, you ran after her to find out where she got it. And that is the power of beauty—it’s universal, because every woman knows, obsesses about, and wants it.
The other thing about beauty is that it’s not always the easiest to master. Which is exactly what we’ve been busy doing this month—uncovering the best hair, skin, and make-up secrets, so you don’t have to. Our Beauty Special is packed with a bunch of awesome stuff, including trends to try from Fashion Weeks (page 286), amazing eye make-up looks to work this weekend (page 310), and some fabulous hair inspiration to take from other stylish Cosmo girls (page 302). There are also hundreds of products to fall in love with, and my favourite—The Best Beauty Secrets (page 317), which is basically a rip-out-and-keep section, full of really clever tips and tricks to make a beauty pro out of you. Soak in all the information, and don’t forget to send me your compliment count!
Have a gorgeous month,
