"Go for 24-karat-gold lips."
According to Hollywood lore, Marlene Dietrich demanded that makeup artist Max Factor sprinkle real gold dust into her hair to make it appear as if it were gleaming on film. Wearing golden makeup can have the same impact on your features when viewed in sultry, low lighting. So to offset a come-hither gaze and give your mouth a flirty finish, layer on translucent gold lipstick.
Tip: If gold lipstick alone doesn’t “pop” enough for you, layer it over your everyday lip color to give it added dimension.
Braving the winter elements can cause your nose to glow, giving you a look that’s fetching only on fictional reindeer. Cold temperatures and gusty winds constrict blood vessels in the extremities to conserve energy, making your nose white. When you come inside and warm up, extra blood rushes to your cheeks and nose, inducing redness, dryness, and increased sensitivity. To help prevent a beet-red beak, wear a stylish scarf bundled around your face when you’re outdoors. Also, soothe weather-beaten skin by sticking to a mild cleanser morning and night. Try Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, $7.99. During the day, be sure to sport an oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen, since the sun can aggravate a chapped condition. Try Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 15, $12.99. To camouflage a scarlet schnoz: Smooth on a green-tinted powder (to neutralize redness), followed by a concealer that matches your skin tone, says Ross Burton, a New York City makeup artist. Try Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder in Green, $12.95. If your nose remains red for more than a week to 10 days, see your dermatologist to make sure you’re not suffering from a more severe skin condition.
Katie Cassidy’s tousled style is so sophisticated—it’s composed of dozens of little loops. Use a curling iron to create spirals before pinning them in place.
True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll’s intricate updo is stunning—but the best part is the pretty rhinestone clip. Use one (like this version from Ulta) to dress up any look.
A sleek chignon like Thandie Newton’s will never go out of style. After twisting your tresses into a tight knot, mist some hairspray onto a comb and smooth down every last flyaway.
If your hair is ultra-thick, you can twist it into a big, top-of-the-head bun for a style like Lauren Conrad’s. If you need more volume, fake it by creating a looped ponytail (go to make a regular pony, but don’t pull the hair all the way through the elastic) , wrapping the ends around the loop and then pulling on pieces and pinning them for an intentionally messy result.
Whether you need fancy night-out locks or a simple get-that-hair-off-the-back-of-my-neck look, one of these pretty updo hairstyles will do the trick.
Zoe Saldana’s low, side bun is a must-try. (More than one hairstylist has confirmed that it’s the popular updo right now.) When you create this look at home, start with loose curls; then, pin them into a not-too-perfect knot covering one ear; finally, take a strip of hair that’s poking out from the bun and round it around the rubber bands for a more messy but chic bun.
Want to get amazing out of this world fairy makeup?! Well, let me first start off by saying this isn’t my creation. It’s Michelle Phan’s.

Recently, I just purchased Revlon’s Just Bitten lip balm and stain in the color “Instinct” and I must say: I loved it! It stays on all day and comes with a balm to get those soft lips you’ve been longing for without having to carry one more item in your purse! I have compiled a pros and cons list for you guys:
-Stays on most of the day
-Has many colored lip stains
-Doesn’t test on animals
-Leaves your lip moisturized
-The range of nude lip stains are very minimal
-The balm, just like mine, will fall off if your not at all careful with it
-If you drink, eat, or kiss you will have to reapply
Could you do a Halloween segment? Like Halloween makeup or something?
Of course, I would love to!
Charles University in Prague has recently discovered that body odor and perfume/cologne go hand in hand. Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to buy a perfume or a cologne for someone else? The reason is: people are attracted to what enhances their natural scent, as Dr. Jan Havlicek explains here:
"Perfumes have been used by people for thousands of years and the prevailing view has been that this was to mask our natural body odour to make us smell more attractive. In fact, what we have found is there is a strong individual interaction between perfume and body odour. People choose fragrances to complement their own odour…”
Guess what. The saying is that “opposites attract” can be proven through scent. It may also be why our partners can never get anything right concerning perfume or cologne..
"Our own personal body odour is determined by our immune system. Indeed we tend to be attracted to the smell of people who have different immune systems to ourselves and we don’t like the smell of those who have a similar immune system. This makes sense from a biological point of view as it has obvious advantages for our children who would inherit genes that give a combination of both immune systems.”
