‘Magic Mike’ star, Cody Horn, walked the red carpet in support of her new movie this past week. While her character in the movie has the signature long, voluminous locks of a love interest, Cody seems to prefer her hair kept short and sleek. Her wet head look is a summer essential, especially on a laid back weekend. The easiest way to achieve a look like this is to add a little bit of spray gel, like Herbal Essence Tousle Me Gentle Spray Gel, to hair when after it’s dry. Spray gel gives hair the needed texture and will give it the wet appearance. The key is to keep combs and brushes away from hair after spraying in the gel.
Benefit-Blush-Lip-Gloss.jpgDon’t you love when blushes and lipglosses go together like peanut butter and jelly? We sure do. And, apparently, so does Benefit, because the brand’s new lipglosses perfectly match their Box O’Powders!

The six shades in the collection are most certainly a match made in heaven. Each blush and lipgloss complement and match each other, so your lips and cheeks will be in perfect harmony! Choose from the following shades:

CORALista (sheer coral)
Dandelion (soft pearly pink)
Dallas (dusty rose)
Sugarbomb (shimmering pinky nude)
Bella Bamba (sheer bright watermelon)
Hoola (shimmering golden nude)

We love all six just for the fun names alone! It’s just a bonus that they all make your lips and cheeks look amazing, too.

Benefit Box O’Powders retail for $28 each. Benefit Lip Glosses retail for $16 each. Snap them all up at benefitcosmetics.com.

Mila-Kunis-Ted-Premiere.jpgIt goes without saying that Mila Kunis is a stunning girl. We always love seeing what she does on the red carpet, both fashion and beauty wise. And the premiere of her new movie with Mark Wahlberg, Ted, definitely ranks as one of her best.

We’re absolutely loving Mila’s smoky eyes, peachy pink lips and super straight, sleek hair. This is a definite win for her on the red carpet—she just knocked it out of the ballpark! None of the elements compete with each other, they all work in perfect harmony and the final result is just effortlessly gorgeous and sexy.
