When I saw how phenomenal Emma Stone’s eyelashes looked in the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara ad campaign, I had to bite. Now that being said, I hope we all know by now that often times celebrity’s lashes are treated with other products and sometimes use falsies — so I know this mascara is not going to get the exact same result on my barely there lashes. However, I can say that Revlon’s Lash Potion Mascara is as close to a magic serum as my lashes will ever get. It made my lashes more voluminous and longer and definitely made my eyes pop. It doesn’t clump and removes easily with makeup remover. Don’t believe me? Buy a tube yourself and test it out. What do you have to lose?

You can buy Revlon Lash Potion for $5.99 at drugstores everywhere and at ulta.com

As the weather starts to change and your skin becomes drier, it becomes more difficult to keep skin looking radiant. For most people, doing an overnight peel is a great option because you put the mask on before bed, let it work its magic overnight, and then wipe it off in the morning. However, some women (me included) have sensitive skin and these overnight procedures can cause irritation or breakouts. So I discovered my new secret weapon that I just can’t live without: the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads ($6.49). 

These pads help improve skin tone, texture and reveal brighter more radiant skin. The dual textured pad uses foaming skin-conditioning cleansers and natural soy extracts to leave the skin soft and smooth. One side is smooth in order to lift away dirt, oils and makeup, while the other side is textured in order to gently exfoliate the skin to get rid of dead cells. These cleansing pads are gentle enough to be used on a regular daily basis and work for any skin type and sensitivity. Also, in a clinical test, 100% of women showed improved skin. An added bonus, the container is small and light enough to carry in your purse!

Bella Thorne has been enjoying the Disney star “It” girl life and I can’t help but wonder if she has taken her golden touch too far on this one. For a recent photo shoot Bella’s arches were full and shaded in shimmery gold — a trend that originated at the Dior Spring ‘14 fashion week show. It was her otherwise very minimally made up face that really made her eyebrows stand out. Given her strawberry blonde strands and fair complexion I felt like the gold eyebrows were just odd, but I can’t imagine them looking better on any other celebrity with darker hair or a darker complexion, either. Is this a trend that I’m missing out on? Would you try this at home, or better yet out and about?





There are very few things I love more than a good throwback, like an all-time classic movie like 90s teen hit Clueless — especially when it inspires something else I love: nail art. NCLA Clueless Nail Wraps are very similar to any other nail stickers on the market, except these are designed after Cher’s outfits from the movie: animal prints, road signs, even some of the best quotes from the film. There are four different sets from the collection, including “Cher’s Closet”, “Everywhere You Go Has Valet”, “I Totally Paused!”, and finally my favorite, “Virgin Who Can’t Drive”. If you’re a fan of the movie and not the best at doing your own nails, be sure to check them out — and even if you get them as a silly gift for a girlfriend, they’re all around awesome!

It may be the subdued makeup paired with the bold lip, or the backdrop of the Fourth-Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, but something about Ashley Madekwe was just impeccably classic. Avon makeup artist, Lauren Anderson, was more than happy to share how she achieved this beautiful look.

First on the face she used YSL Touche Eclat Foundation as a base and layered on that with Laura Mercier bronzer on Ashley’s cheeks.  For the eyes Lauren looked to Avon True Color Eye Shadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation, using the #3 brown shade across the lid, and blended out at the crease. And she polished off Ashley’s peepers with Avon’s Mega Effects Mascara and Votre Vu Brow Wax. For the pièce de résistance, Lauren used Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Cherry Jubilee.
