Lauren Luke, a very popular beauty vlogger, teamed up with the anti-abuse group Refuge to create a beauty video about covering up bruises caused by domestic violence.

Last week, when I was in San Jose for the gymnastics Olympic trials, in addition to, you know, hanging with some of the best athletes in world, I also got to get a private makeup consultation with P&G Beauty’s makeup artist Candace Corey. One of the products she recommended to me, that I just lovvvvved, was CoverGirl’s Natureluxe gloss balm in Peony. First of all, peonies are my favorite flower, but she didn’t know that so it seemed rather fated. Secondly, this gloss balm is perfect for summer because although it looks super bright in the tube, it goes on sheer and doesn’t look heavy.

Well, well, well: who’s gone and snagged their first Vogue but Ms. Emma Stone? We covered the starlet’s sultry debut on the front of the glossy last week before the powers that be at the mag officially released the photos within. The spread, shot by Mario Testino, is lovely, but it’s the cover image alone that had me gawking. Emma’s makeup — smudgily lined eyes, flushed cheeks, and petal pink lips — is the perfect pumped-up natural (you know, “natural”) look for any occasion on basically anybody. Naturally, I couldn’t resist breaking it down. Keep reading »
